I moved to Brookings in 1990 to help open a fast food restaurant and start a family. It was the spring of 1990, 2 years graduated from high school, and a newlywed. Since that time, I have worked in customer service, banking, owned two home businesses and earned many awards in sales. Along with my wife Karen, I have watched Brookings & the surrounding communities grow over the years. I enjoy camping, NASCAR, NFL and coaching soccer, along with the community organizations I am involved in. I am excited to put my experiences to work for you in finding that right place to call home or marketing your existing one because it’s time to upgrade, downsize or just make a change. “I bought my house through Century21 in 1998 and they helped me every step of the way. It just seemed like a natural fit for me to be here. They were very friendly and knowledgeable and helped me find that perfect “dream” home. I want to provide that same service to the people of the Brookings area.” I have been in the Real Estate business since 2009, working with commercial and residential clients to include First Time Home Buyers and repeat buyers. Doing Market Evaluations for a community credit union is also a specialty. I am a past Chair and currently a member of the Membership Services committee at the state level, on the SDAR State Board of Directors and volunteer on some local committees. Also a member of the Brookings Chamber of Commerce, National Assoc. of Realtors, East Central Board of Realtors, and Brookings Regional Builders Assoc. Awards I have earned would include the Rising Star award in 2012, 5 consecutive years of the Century 21 Quality Service award, Master Ruby Award for 2 straight years and was voted the ECBR 2014 Realtor of the Year. I am also a graduate of the 2013 SDAR Leadership Academy and hold the SRS NAR designation. And recently, the 2015 South Dakota Volunteer of the Year from the South Dakota State Soccer Association.
