Before I sold homes, I worked many years in wedding planning. It’s a surprisingly similar business! Both require effective communication with vendors, managing a client’s budget and acting as a sounding board in stressful times. I went above and beyond for my couples and I do the same goes now for my real estate clients. I empower buyers with market knowledge and connect them with fantastic listings before they hit the market. I fight stress with a strong sense of humor and I’m passionate about the Black Hills! I specialize in helping out-of-town clients find their new favorite parks, restaurants and local activities! Buying a home is a thrilling achievement and I can’t wait to help you get there! If you want a fun, hard-working Realtor who has your back, I’m your gal!

PS: I am a big nerd (Harry Potter, shows involving Joss Whedon etc.), I love attempting Pinterest projects and chasing my young daughter around our backyard.

Born and raised in Sundance, Wyoming but my family has now lived here in Rapid City for over a decade. I love meeting new people and helping them accomplish their goals – whether first time homebuyers or people looking to sell their home. My husband and I have a son and daughter and we love taking trips as a family and cheering on our son’s little league team.

(Team note: Darby is our superhero and secret weapon! She is the person who makes sure we consistently give above-and-beyond, five-star service to our clients. We are a strong, professional team because of her organization and efforts!)

House Obsessed!

That’s how I would describe myself. I have been in the Housing Industry for over 11 years. For as long as I can remember I’ve always had an interest in Real Estate and also own a design business. Having a background like this is a great resource for my buyers and sellers alike. I am used to managing multiple schedules, problem solving, creative negotiations, and can assist in making your house a home even after the sale!

I am a wife, mother to 5 great kids, and have too many pets for most people! I was born in Aberdeen, SD, grew up in Minneapolis, and have been lucky enough to call Rapid City home for over 15 years. I love showing people all the great things this area has to offer. Need a recommendation for a quaint restaurant, great coffee shop, local event, desired school district, contractor, landscaper, etc…. Well, let me tell you!

You know the saying, love what you do and you will never work a day in your life… I get to do that every day! If there is any regret, I’d say that I wish I would have done this sooner! Perfect from the moment we open the front door, or uncovering a diamond in the rough, I enjoy connecting people with the perfect home. If you are in the market to buy or sell I would love the opportunity to work with you!
