Hi ActiveRain

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results (Specializing in Short Sales)

Hi ActiveRain,

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself properly before I jump right in (well not so right in, but I am on it now!)

My name is Bob Kuyper. I have been married for 31 years to my wonderful wife Kate, I am blessed with 3 daughters and a fire in my belly for the real estate business. I have been at this for quite a while and am going to be hitting a milestone shortly, selling home number 2900. Then my next goal will be home number 3,000!

I am working with foreclosures and short sales right now in Minnesota, specifically the areas of Rice County, Scott County and the Southern part of Dakota County. I have several designations and really enjoy helping homeowners and future homeowners with their real estate goals.

Thanks for stopping by my post.

I look forward to commenting back and forth with you, to our discussions and helping each other online.

Hi Bob!

Wow, 2900 homes.  That is amazing!  How long have you been selling?  I've sold over 600 and have been doing this for 12 years. 

Welcome.  I'm pretty new to AR but love how open, kind, and informative everyone is.  You will enjoy!

I'm a newbie here also. I joined a while back and was receiving many daily emails. I accidentally told AR to stop them and haven't received any since then. Therefore, I haven't had AR in the front of my brain. Our office has been fortunate to have a great Social Media teacher spend time at our office getting us smarter on all of this, so here I am, jumping in again.  Look forward to sharing articles and listings and being part of the revitalization of the real estate market!

More opinions than you want to hear about.

Hi Bob, welcome to AR.  2900 is a real mess of homes.  I think maybe I've shown about that many.

Roy, I think I did a newbie thing. I sent a comment, thought it went, then got an error message that I didn't type the graphic correctly. Sharing for the other newbies!

  I just got back from Montgomery County -  my high school reunion at BCC! Let's stay in touch.
