Always looking for ways to provide clients as many options for their real estate needs and improve my real estate experience and knowledge, I recently joined HUGHES REAL ESTATE & AUCTION SERVICES May 2017. We offer Residential, Commercial, Ag and Land Sales & Auction Services. Over the past 20 years in the real estate sale and marketing business I’ve had the pleasure to Broker two RE/MAX franchises for 10 ½ years and successfully finish my RE/MAX career as an independent agent earning award recognition for production and outstanding service each year. Starting in the Minneapolis suburbs in 1997 and moving to SW Minnesota in 2000 (Montevideo & Granite Falls area) gives me a unique prospective on relocation from Suburban to Rural communities & widened knowledge of residential, rural residential, land, and agricultural property sales. Participating as a Board of Directors (9 years) and Past President of the WCAR (West Central Association of Realtors), and member of the Public Relations Committee for WCAR keeps me connected with real estate industry practices in many different communities in SW Minnesota. Designations earned in the real estate industry are GRI (Graduate of Real Estate Industry studies) and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist). This experience, industry involvement and knowledge is shared with my clients to enhance their buying and selling experience for a smooth transition throughout the buying/selling process with one of their largest decisions.
