Prior to entering real estate, I enjoyed a 26-year accounting career with the State of South Dakota and took a leap of faith in becoming a Realtor. I always enjoy helping friends and family search for their dream homes and love touring open houses and model homes in whatever city I travel to. I understand what it is like to stand in your shoes as I have relocated several times and have built my own house. I know how important it is to have someone in your corner. As a former accountant, one of my guiding principles is "Trust but Verify" meaning that I am organized and used to paying attention to details so nothing falls through the cracks.
My personal motto is "Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right." I believe that every person can achieve their dreams with the right attitude and have fun doing it. The daredevil in me enjoys cross-country motorcycle trips, snowboarding in the Black Hills and wakeboarding on the Missouri River but my softer side craves spending time with my children and grandchildren, scrapbooking quilting and quiet time at home.
Let me put all of my life experience, perspective, and passion to work for you in buying and selling your next home.--
