Q & A

  1. Tell me when you started your career. I started my career in Jan. 2012
  2. Tell me why you decided on your career. Why not something else? My husband and I at that time were ranchers east of Sturgis so I had knowledge of aspects of agriculture, I had met Suzanne Olson and then Dixie offered me a job if I was interested in getting my real estate license.
  3. Tell me what accomplishments you’re most proud of. My accomplishments in life that I’m most proud of are raising my 2 sons with integrity, ambition, and a good work ethic. My accomplishments that I’m proud of in my field are finding amicable solutions to difficult problems and always doing what is best for my client, even if it creates more work on my end.
  4. List no more than 5 significant awards you’ve received in your field. 
  5. Tell me what you did before your current profession. Before I became I real estate agent I drove road construction equipment, worked for a Ag. Feedlot, and also worked in an office.
  6. Tell me what was your biggest success professionally. Why was it a big success? My biggest success professionally has been this past year. I sold 2 different farms and figured out ways to parcel the fields off individually to create a higher value for the 2 Sellers. I worked hard and sold $7 million dollars of Ag farmland in 4 months. One day in particular I had 4 different transactions with 3 different parties that had to close simultaneously, also working with 3 different banks. Everything went smoothly.
  7. Tell me where you went to college and why you chose there. I went to Western Dakota Technical Institution in Rapid City and just took and office program. I then took my real estate classes about 12 years later.
  8. List 1-3 reasons you’re different from others in your profession. The reason I feel like I’m different from other Farm/Ranch Realtors is I look at every transaction from the farm/ranch standpoint. I offer my opinion to clients that are not familiar with the area. I use an excellent mapping program to show clients different soil types, topography, and aerial maps. Because of this, I have many repeat clients that value my opinion. I also do every transaction from start to finish and take care of every aspect of it.
  9. List up to 3 things you enjoy doing on weekends. Things I enjoy doing on the weekends are taking my boys rodeoing or spending time in our arena. We have traveled all over the country roping and have some great memories. I also enjoy our ranch work, we do most of all of it on horseback. It’s hard work but enjoyable and rewarding. In the evenings one of the most relaxing things for me is sitting on the deck with our fireplace.
  10. Tell me who you live with. If children under 18, please list their ages. I live with my 2 sons, Cade (17) and Casper (14).
  11. Tell me no more than 3 significant drivers that motivated you to learn your profession. 
  12. What are you most passionate about professionally? I am most passionate about professionally is helping clients to the best of my ability. Buying and selling property are some of the biggest decisions in someone’s life, it’s rewarding to help them through the process.
  13. What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it? 
  14. What are you surprisingly good at? I’m surprisingly good at thinking outside the box. Whether or not it is real estate, ranch work, or raising 2 boys, there’s always a solution.
  15. What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
  16. How long have you been working in your field? 
  17. What’s your biggest accomplishment? 
  18. How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences? 
  19. What problems do you consistently solve for your clients? 
  20. What are you complimented on most in your work? I receive a lot of compliments of getting things done right away, answering and figuring out problems. I have many repeat clients, some of the properties have been a challenge but I work them and do the best for my client.
  21. Who is your ideal client and why should they connect with you? My ideal client is someone who keeps in mind the end goal whether it is selling or buying. Considers my advice and gives me the same curtesy and respect I give to them. I do not have a transaction coordinator, or secretary, I take care of every transaction from start to finish. I focus on quality not quantity and only take on as much work as I can manage, I happy to refer a customer to another qualified agent in my office if I feel I cannot do my best job if I have enough of a work load.
