Best thing about living in Central Iowa?
Less than 90 minutes drive to Ames! Love rural Iowa because there's very little traffic and you can get places quickly, but still close enough to restaurants & entertainment in Des Moines area.
Favorite memory from your career as a realtor...
Rehabbing 8 vacant apartments in downtown Oskaloosa over a three month timeframe...then having them rented as quickly as they became available.
Be a proud parent. Tell us about your kids.
Soon to be teenage daughter in 7th grade and son in 4th grade. They're both good students, love playing & watching sports, and love the Cyclones as much as I do!
If you weren't a realtor, what would you be doing?
Working for Iowa State University in some capacity or being a trip planner.
Which of these three do you do most? Read, watch TV or listen to music
It's close between watching TV and listening to music. Always listening to music in my car or at home, but still probably watch TV the most.
