process. We were impressed with his creative use of social media and appreciate his community

Shane was exactly the guy I needed for finding my first house. He was very laid back and approachable. I was able to meet with him several times before even signing a contact. I had a ton of questions and he answered all of them in a very timely manner. Very easy to reach at any time of the day.  Highly recommended.

- Taylor-Brookings

Shane Andersen was phenomenal to deal with. He works hard and put us at ease throughout the whole process. He is dedicated too. I am not sure any other realtor would have dug through 2 feet of snow to put up the for sale sign, but he did! Thank you so much Shane for making one of the most stressful times in our life, a little easier with your help! 

- P. Hock

Our family all were on board having Shane and his team handle our sale. We had confidence in them. Shane was great in keeping in touch with us and taking charge of any problems that arose during sale process. I would highly recommend them to anyone I talk to. He took care of things I am not sure all brokers do. Accolades to him. We wanted our house sold before winter and because of our age we were thrilled with his expertise. Could not be improved All excellent and expedient. Shane took care of us and we are so grateful.

- R & L Helwig

Shane Andersen took the time to answer all of our questions and went above and beyond to show us what he could do to help us sell our house. Shane also explained his experience and how well he knew the market in the area. My husband and I were both very impressed with Shane and there was no question which realtor we wanted to represent us in the selling of our house.

We would recommend Shane to anyone looking for an agent to market the sale of their home. He's very involved in the community and a great asset to Century 21! 

- Mallett

We are friends, which is why we chose her as our realtor. During the negotiation phase of the process we were so grateful of her local knowledge and diligence in securing the sale and purchase. We knew that throughout process if we had any questions or concerns she would figure it out and communicate with us right away. She worked with our schedule to accommodate meetings and phone calls. Again, this was our best realtor experience. We worked with Shane too and was impressed as well!

Janean is exceptionally patient and helpful. What we like her the most is her connection and teaming with lenders, insurance agents and other relevant locales that makes the whole process goes very smoothly.

- Xufei Yang

Very personal, understood my situation and took that into account . Janean worked hard on trying to find and showing us a home and when we decided to build was highly energetic in locating the owner of the lot we had picked out. She was enthusiastic for us as she knew that it was the right decision for us.

- Jeanne Zeigler Aroura SD

We made the right choice in selecting Janean Caugherty to help us find a new home! Her personal attention to our needs and requests helped us feel comfortable when searching for a home. She was understanding and receptive to our feedback after showings and patient when we knew something was not right for us. When we finally found what we were looking for she helped sell our old home while we arranged for our new one. If you are looking for your new home, I recommend Janean to help you find the perfect fit.

Janean was SO helpful and worked extremely hard to ensure we found the perfect house. She made us feel so comfortable during the entire process! Janean is also wonderful to be around.

schedules and was fun to work with. Thanks Shane!

- Kes S.-Bruce

Shane did a fabulous job selling our home. With some unique challenges he never hesitated to jump in a offer unbiased advice and information. He exceeded all my expectations and the most important thing is the home sold for over asking price. What else could a person ask for. Shane and the staff did an outstanding job! Quick shout out to Angie and thank you to her for her efforts as well. Thank you Shane!

- Steve K.

We loved Shane and haven’t even met him. Shane answered the million questions I asked him and had a ton of patience. We dealt with him for many months on the different listings. This was a strange experience for all of us since we lived out of state. We have yet to see the house but we feel really good with the purchase and can’t wait to start our life in Brookings. Shane was always there and answered any questions we had about the different houses. It was a painless process and we can’t thank him enough. 

- L. Schumacher

Shane Andersen is a amazing and has always been a caring realtor that values what he does and it shows through his success. We have enjoyed working with him in both situations through buying and selling a home. He has always been available to answers questions promptly and never minded the excess of questions we had for him. I would recommend Shane to anyone!!!! Thank you Shane for your hard work.

- Lagenhorst-Arlington

Shane was great when helping me purchase my new home. His knowledge of what would benefit me when I was looking at homes was phenomenal.

- Maribeth T.

Very knowledgeable and thorough. Shane answered all my questions and it was a very easy process!

I was concerned about selling my house in Aurora as there are many similar homes that are brand new. Shane sold the house in 4 days!

- Ross P.

Shane Andersen was a wonderful realtor to work with. He was
an excellent communicator and was always in contact with us
throughout the sales experience. He put maximum effort into
keeping our home in the public eye and worked hard to show it
to as many people as he could. He was polite and considerate
of our family nature and totally willing to work with our schedules
for every step of the process, from taking pictures to signing the
closing documents.

We highly recommend Shane for your home buying and selling
needs!

Shane Anderson took our needs and requirements and met them. He offered advise and was honest. Whenever we had a question he was there to answer. Anything we had a hard time understanding he clarified it and made it easier to understand. 

- E & S Lauseng-Arlington

Shane Andersen is easy to work with very helpful, goes above and beyond and makes you feel very comfortable during the whole process. 

- T Krier-Brookings

Shane was able to switch up as my requirements changed and continued to make my time effective by providing the information needed to screen the available properties according to my latest requirements. I appreciated his honesty and insight. In the process, I ended up with a home I adore!

- M. Stulken

Janean was very patient with me when I was losing my mind

- Linda Watson

Shane was great, very understanding and helpful. I'm sure we
drove him crazy at times, but you would never know it,
he,always remaimed calm. I would recommend him to a friend,
he was very knowledgeable but never pushy, I liked that.

- Scott & Connie M.

We contacted Shane a few years ago just thinking about buying a house. Shane contacted us every year checking on our progress and seeing if he could help. He was never pushy, always very nice, and ready to help. He was always very helpful. When we reached the point to buy Shane lined up houses in our price range and every house was what we asked for. Shane was very open and honest about any question we had. He made our house hunting process fun and comfortable. We appreciate all Shane did for us and are very happy in our new home! Thank you Shane!!! 

- R & M Kunze

Shane Andersen contacted me and I'm glad he did. He did everything he could to be the best realtor possible. He was always in contact and made everything a clear and easy task to complete. He did an absolute perfect job and I would recommend him to anyone!

- Nate Josephsen Lake Preston

Janean was a real blessing! She went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor to help us find a home for our family. We would refer her to anyone who is looking for a new home.

- Curt and Katie Urevig, Brookings, SD

Shane always either answered our questions or found out for us if he didn't know and let us know right away. He also always offered to help contact people for us and set things up for us. We were wondering if the furnace could be moved in our house and he offered to and called someone to come to the house and see if it could be moved even though it wasn't something that would have changed our mind about getting the house. 

- Stephen & Summer Inches

Janean made this a very enjoyable experience. It took quite awhile to sell, but I did not see this as a problem any realtor could have solved any faster. Janean was extremely thorough, and communicated with me by both e-mail and phone in a very prompt manner. I had to call her once or twice on weekends, and if not available, got back to me before the end of the weekend. She was very respectful to all parties involved. I would recommend Janean and Century 21 to anyone looking to either buy or sell property.

- Steven J Martinson Brookings, SD.

Thanks Shane. I will defiantly recommend you to friends and family.

The office personal and agents were all very home friendly.

- Sue Bottoms

Janean Caugherty was an excellent source for buying this house. Very professional and friendly at all times. Whenever we had a question, she always retrieved a fast answer for us, making the process smooth and enjoyable. Even when we had a question at an odd time like an evening on a weekend - she always went out of her way to make the time for us. Thanks Janean!

- Larry and Dwan Tjeerdsma; Volga

Savannah had great communication with us during and after the purchase.

- Monica Henning, Brookings SD

Having worked with Shane with the purchase of our previous home we knew the process went very well. We again had a very satisfying experience. 

- P & M Anderson-Brookings

We know Shane personally and based on his character, we knew we wanted to work with him when we first considered putting our home on the market. If I could rate Patience higher than Excellent I would. We actually spoke with Shane a couple of years before we put our home on the market. He was very patient and courtesy of our timeline as we searched for a new property in another state. After we decided to put the home on the market, we threw him a twist of moving with a relocation company, and he remained professional and patient as we worked through the obstacles associated with that process. We are extremely grateful to Shane for his sticktoitiveness and patience throughout our whole process. 

- Jeff & Julie-Missouri

Shane was really helpful in this whole process. It was really nice to have someone so helpful when
purchasing my first home at such a young age. Any questions I had he answered really quick. If and when I
decide to sell I will be going back to Shane Andersen.

- Jon D.

We loved how she took care of us even when my husband was being difficult at what he wanted. We really enjoyed her!

- Becki, Brookings, SD

Shane was super helpful answering all my questions and was on top of things getting everything done that needed to be done in order to sell the house. He did a great job with everything! I am more than pleased with the job he did! 

- Amy P.-Aurora

Shane Andersen was a pleasure to work with. He utilizes technology and social media actively in his approach when listing homes or when assisting buyers, which aids greatly in quick communication and traffic for his properties. Shane was available for my wife and me whenever we needed him, whether that was mornings, lunch meetings, or evening appointments. He is very active in the community of Brookings and takes a vested interest in many aspects throughout town. Also, his multiple connections with people in the housing industry have been very helpful for us since the purchase of our home! We would recommend Shane to anyone buying or selling a home in the Brookings area! Eric, Brookings SD 

- Eric-Brookings

I personally feel like Janean is the best realtor in Brookings. The entire time we worked together - I felt like we were a team. I knew she was always going to go to bat for us. I was honestly a little sad when we got an accepted offer only because it was so great to work with Janean. I knew the moment I met her at an open house that she was the perfect realtor for us. Why should you hire her? She is going to keep it real with you and always has your best interest in mind. I don’t know that I would have actually bought a house if I had worked with a different realtor because I was so stressed about the process. Janean normalized that stress and empathized with me. That was huge and helped me get over my nerves about the process! It is also worth noting that the house I now live in and love was not on my radar. Janean is the reason we decided to give it a look. She had listened to us at the different places we looked at and was confident that this would be something that we liked. I was totally unconvinced until we actually took a look and realized she was right. I feel like nothing speaks higher than her ability to find the perfect house for us. The last thing I want to mention is that Janean helped us purchase our current house while on the road. She got us in within an hour of my request to see it a second time. Then she did the contract and even called me the next day to tell me that we were going to be home owners. She didn’t have to do any of that. She has two teammates who would have been more than happy to help us. I still cannot get over our luck in finding her. What are you waiting for? Call Janean and let her help you find your next home (or sell it).

- Kristine Ramsay-Seaner, Brookings, SD

Shane was great to work with. He genuinely cared about what we were looking for and neeeding in a home. He always checked in on how we were doing with the whole process and made sure to let us know he was always available to answer any questions we may of had. Very knowledable about everything and pointed out and made observations that we would not have thought of. If he didn’t have an answer right away about something, he was very quick about finding it out and getting back to us. We will use Shane every time in the future for our real estate needs. Thank you Shane!!

- Hansen

Shane is very knowledgeable about mobile homes and knows these are real homes to customers. He cares about both parties and is careful to keep everyone informed on what's going on every step of the process. He is very involved in the community and therefore knows when and what potential clients are looking for! Everyone knows Shane and he is very approachable. Our house wasn't big money but it did not affect how he treated us. Great working with him!! 

- Joan N. Brookings SD

Shane is excellent to work with and I would recommend to anyone in the Brookings area. He's very honest,
hard-working, and down to earth.

- McNickle

Shane was instrumental in the sale of real estate in very difficult market. Excellent results!

- R & S Thompson

Shane has been very helpful before, during and after buying a home. He always has our needs first throughout the process. Our experience with Shane as our real estate agent was great.

- Jordon Pace

Best realtor experience I could have ever hooped for being a first time home buyer. If we ever decide to sell our home and look for a new one we will for sure be back for Janean. Janean drove all over and showed us as many houses as possible that we were interested in and was very timely on responses and helpful in making decisions and finding stuff we were interested in. Janean was always super friendly and willing to work with our rather difficult schedule.

- Matthew Cassels, White SD

We used Century 21 to purchase our house when we got to Brookings and had a great experience. I have known Shane Andersen for years, so it was an easy choice to use him, and I am glad I did. Shane had the right marketing plan and helped us set the right price for our house because even during the slow season for real estate, we got the offer on the house a week and a half after putting it on the market. And he helped us resolve an issue found in our house with the best possible outcome. The house closed on schedule and everything went according to plan. I would highly recommend using Shane Andersen and the team at Century 21 when buying or selling a home in Brookings!

- Sue Hay

Shane Andersen was always polite, understanding and available to answer questions. He was very accommodating to our busy schedules and went out of his way to assist us in any manner he could.

- Kris Graslie

Janean was so excellent in taking care of me and my needs/concerns throughout the process. The process did get a bit rough but not due to Century 21 or Janean. She helped keep me calm and kept me informed as a first-time home buyer. I absolutely would recommend her! I do not have experience with other brokers in the company, but if I was treated the way Janean treated me by another broker, I don't think anyone can beat the company as a whole!

- Sue, Brookings

We met Janean at an open house where we had stopped by. She asked if we were working with any realtors and we said not really. She took our information and we explained the items that we were looking for in a dream home. A few weeks later she emailed us about a house that would soon hit the market, and explained it had many of the things we were looking for and in our price range. We set up an early showing and it was Absolutely the perfect house. Janean always handled everything very professionally while still making you feel that she was completely on your side. As first time home owners she was there for every panicked moment, every late night call and random questions on the middle of a Saturday. She made that process easy for us even though we had no idea what we were doing. She was fantastic, I would recommend her to anyone! She found us our dream home and that's not something everyone can do , I will forever be grateful to her. It was fantastic! I couldn't believe how much Janean remembered from our 5 minute conversation about what we were looking for in a house, and somehow found us the perfect home. She went out of her way to reach out to us about this property and I so thankful or we probably wouldn't be home owners right now.

- Kena Lenhart, Brookings

I found Janean's ability and handling of all aspects of my home purchase to be exceptional and she made this purchase as easy and wonderful by the many extra things she did. She contacted me with updates when needed and always let me know when there was a property available that fit my needs and wants. The condo I purchased was exactly what I needed and fits my needs perfectly. She went above and beyond her responsibilities to me and all those connected with this purchase. I found her kindness and compassion admirable and I would recommend her to all my friends, relatives, etc. as a superb agent.

- Linda Bates in Brookings, SD

I would recommend Shane Andersen to anyone searching for a house in the Brookings area (and I will). He went above and beyond our expectations for a realtor and helped make our first time buying a house a great experience. He was considerate, flexible, and above all else easy to understand and taught us about the home buying experience rather than just leaving us to figure it out on our own. 5 out of 5 stars!

- Tracy H.

Shane is the best literally. He is professional. He took his work seriously. He is knowledgable about what he is doing. He kept me informed every progress he made. I felt at peace that he was my agent. He completed all details carefully. He is real and trustworthy. I highly recommend Shane if someone wants to sell his or her property. 

- Chat-Brookings

From start to finish, Shane took the time to answer our questions and find any information we needed to make our home-buying experience ideal. As first-time home buyers, a lot of the details were confusing, but he walked us through each issue we had in a professional manner. We were very impressed with the level of commitment he showed in helping us find and purchase our first home, and we will be certain to recommend him to all of our friends and family looking to buy or sell! 

- D&S

Our time frame to purchase a home changed a few times over the course of communicating with Shane. He was patient and understanding, which we greatly appreciated. After we found one, he was able to expedite the closing for us, and we moved in two weeks earlier than expected. For first time home buyers, it was great having someone to look out for our best interests and help us navigate the whole process.

- T. Knutson

Deciding to go with Shane Andersen for help with selling my property was one of the best decisions I've made! He was very easy to work with, provided timely responses to all of my questions, and made the whole process quick and easy for me. 

- J. Janke Brookings

Janean was great every step of the way. As a young couple purchasing our first home, she quickly and accurately answered our numerous questions! She stayed within our budget and helped us find our perfect first home. We honestly don't have a bad thing to say, and we can't think of anything that would have made this experience better.

- Kellsie Dieser and Brody Busho

I thought it was wonderful working with Janean. She was patient with me, she was incredibly responsive to inquiries and responded promptly, she identified my needs and was able to help through any questions or concerns that I had. When I was anxious about hearing back from the seller's on the initial offer, Janean helped calm my nerves. Janean's work on my behalf, her kindness, patience and clear excitement for me when I got my dream house made this house buying experience amazing. Buying a house can be stressful but Janean really helped alleviate stress through her professionalism, knowledge of the field and her entire demeanor throughout the process.

- Jennifer Goldammer, Brookings

Shane provides more of a friendship than a service. He guided me to the resources i needed and got me through an overwhelming time. Shane stayed calm through every step when i had so many questions and cushioned our transition. How many realtors do you know would drive with your pans in their back seat to deliver them to you because you forgot them? That's not a job, that's passion. 

- Sally-Brookings

Shane's knowledge and experience helped us as first time home buyers feel protected and secure through out the home buying process. He was awesome to work with!

- Travis Koropatnicki

Shane Andersen is FANTASTIC to work with. His guidance throughout the home buying and selling process was wonderful. He was always ready to accommodate our requests for showings and we appreciated his patience with us as we searched for the perfect home. Once we found our dream home, Shane helped us to quickly structure a winning offer and prepare our current home for the market. His unique marketing strategies, including 3D tours and utilization of social media, helped set our home apart from the competition. Shane Andersen sets the bar for real estate professionals in the area. His professionalism, promptness, and knowledge of the community and surrounding areas is top-notch. He goes above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. He is highly involved in the community and always finds ways to give back to the community that he serves. I have and will continue to highly recommend his services to anyone planning to buy or sell in the area.

- J. Cowan

Savannah was very professional and was great at communicating what needed to be done and when. Made the sales process easy and very pleasant to talk to. Definitely would use in the future!

- Nick Shumaker, Brookings

Shane always make sure we understood everything, clear communication, he made things very smooth for us. We would recommended others to have him as their agents. He found us a perfect home that we loved! 

- S & C Anderson-Aurora

I really enjoyed working with Shane to sell my home. His communication skills are excellent which made the overall experience of selling my home go smoothly. Very considerate and easy to work with. Excellent at keeping me up to date as things progressed on the selling of my home.If I every decide to sell my home again, Shane would be my first choice. I felt he was very knowledgeable and had excellent marketing skills. Thank you Shane!

- Tammy S.

Shane is a full time realtor. He is accessible. We signed papers at 9:30 on a Friday night because it was convenient for us and we don't live in Brookings . The electronic document and signature set up is wonderful!!!!

- Susan Patrick

Janean went above & beyond for us during the entire process. My husband & I lived in Texas but were going to retire & move to SD 11/1. She helped me with video showings prior to flying up the end of September. She meticulously scheduled showings ahead of my landing & within 24 hours of arriving, an offer was made & accepted before flying back to Texas!!! Janean was an absolute joy to work with. Her diligence & commitment were exemplary!!! There wasn't a single issue between 9/28 & our closing date due to her handling everything locally for us prior to the move.

- Mj Bolstad-Brookings

Janean Caugherty was the best Realtor I dealt with and I was very satisfied with working with her on buying my first house.

- Kelly Cayson, Astoria, SD

Shane showed professionalism and sales experience when selling our home and even with buying our new home. Made the process painless and got our house sold quicker than expected. Allowed usage of the moving truck which helped tremendously. Thank you for everything!

- Nick S.-Brookings

Janean Caugherty was a real asset as I went through the looking and buying process. She was knowledge of the area, Brookings services, and home repairs in general. As a first time home buyer this was priceless and helped me feel knowledgeable and comfortable with the choices I made. She was very practical and honest in her knowledge and suggestions. When there was a negative aspect to a home, Janean was upfront about the challenges these could present as well as solutions to the problem. Can't say enough how helpful her general knowledge and insight was! 

- Jennifer McLaughlin

Shane understood our needs and wants, then delivered in finding the right property for us. His knowledge of the Brookings community and real estate market was invaluable. Coming from out-of-state, we knew very little about local markets, trends, neighborhoods, regulations, local contractors if needed - Shane knew it all. We were always warmly welcomed at the office - across the board. Everyone made us feel comfortable.

- Don N.-Brookings

Shane was very helpful throughout our entire experience. From viewing houses to closing day, Shane had great communication and was very mindful of our needs and schedules. As first time buyers, we really appreciated his knowledge of the process and honestly. He did a great job of breaking down everything for us to better understand, and pointed out things we would have never thought to look at in a home. Shane was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him.

- S. Clement

Janean Caugherty did an awesome job helping us find and purchase a property. She was patient, understanding, and if she didn't know an answer to our questions she knew who to contact that could. I would highly encourage my friends and family to work with her and the Associates at Century 21. 

- DJ Properties

Shane Andersen is helpful in every way. I have sold and purchased homes with Shane Andersen and he has been there every step of the way. Whether it is his strong sales planning or his professional attitude, Shane Andersen is the agent to call on when you want to buy or sell a home.

- Josh Johnson

Savannah was excellent through the entire home buying process. She has a great personality and was easy to work with. Her main focus was fitting my needs in a home and was never too pushy about anything; I never felt uncomfortable. Savannah's communication is top notch and she always kept me up to date with every detail. Despite having a long, delayed closing process due to circumstances related to the weather, she worked hard to keep things going. I HIGHLY recommend Savannah Schumacher for your home buying needs!

- Chad Neal, Aurora, SD
