By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Excellence

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know a little more about me and my business. I broke and training horses for over 30 years. Along with working in a local paper mill. Once my daughter got old enough, she took over most of the training. I grew up with 3 older brothers who loved to rope steer. So of course thats what I did. I started competing professionally at the age of 13. At that time there was only one other girl that roped in the Nothwest Rodeo Association. I high school rodeoed also. Qualifying for the nationals my junior and senior years. The Nationals took me and my horse to Utah in 1973 and Wisconsin in 1974. What a great time in my life.

No more competition for me. Because of injuries I have had to find a job less physical. This is what brings me here. I am selling real estate for Re/Max. A huge change. But what I have found is that people want to trust. An honest hard worker. Someone who cares about what you want and need. All of the things that I brought to the table during my years as a trainer. My clients new I would be honest with them. And the hard work showed in the way their horses turned out.

My work ethics has carried over to my real estate. People have told me that they feel confortable working with me. They truely believe that I'm looking out for there best interest. I never want to push or pressure anyone into buying, . I'm low key and try to help my client be the same. But when we are sure we've found the right house, I'm on it. 

Let me guide you throught the great adventure of home buying. I promise to give you my best. I know nothing else. Selling? I'm also your agent. I look forward to helping you find the home of your dream!!

 

Take Care till next time

Welcome to ActiveRain, Jody! I'm sure some of the patience you needed while working with horses can come in handy with today's buyers and sellers. It's great that you've been able to find two strong passions in your life.
