AboutI started to develop a larger vision for my business as more of my first-time buyers began inquiring about the investment potential of a second home. I committed to educating myself and my team about investment real estate so we could become expert guides for those ready to jump into their investment journey. My team works with in- and out-of-state investors and has partnered with property managers, wholesalers, lenders, and other investment professionals. These partnerships have enabled my team to work with clients well past closing day and create a full-package experience. This work inspired me to join the board of the South Dakota Real Estate Investors Association and help coordinate education programs. Through the association, my team planned the first annual Sioux Empire Real Estate Weekend, in which we brought in investors from around the country for city development tours, property tours, and education sessions. Now, we host a six-month Investment 101 course, which is open to the public. With 17 students, including past clients, lenders, and real estate agents, we champion the idea of building wealth and creating opportunities to work together.
