First tell us about your business--how and why did you start it?
I started selling real estate over 17 years ago. According to my mom, as a child I was going to peoples homes and started looking at what I would do differently and then tell her later, but as I grew older I felt counseling and helping people was important and went to college and graduate school in mental health and counseling. After moving back Rapid City and searching for homes, I had found a passion again for homes. I decided to explore that further and found that you can help people with those services as well. Counseling does play a big role in everything I do, including help negotiate and keeping transactions running smooth. Home and other real estate sales can also be very emotional, important steps in people’s lives.

What is a word of advice you can offer to other women in business?
Always work and talk in a professional manner no matter what situation you are in. Stay calm and think through the problems and growth in logical ways, taking the right steps might not always seem the fastest, but skipping a step might mean you fall. Hire better than you.
