I can honestly say I love my job and have a deep passion for Real Estate. As a child my dream job was to become a real estate agent and I have been lucky enough to make that happen. I am married to a wonderful hard working man named Korey and we live west of West Point on a Farm with our daughter, Kyla. I am a native of West Point and graduated from West Point Central Catholic High School. After High School I attended Northeast Community College where I earned a degree in Rural Agribanking. After graduating from college, I started working at a local bank while completing real estate classes through Randall School of Real Estate. In August of 2011, I earned my Real Estate Salesperson’s license and in October of 2012 earned my broker’s license. I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to working with so many buyers and sellers since receiving my license. I truly love my job and want every individual I work with to feel comfortable with their real estate buying and selling experience!
After nearly 40 years in the AG banking field I decided that I would like to try doing something different. I thought selling real estate would be interesting and it would give me something to do after retiring from the AG banking field. I started working on my real estate license in 2012, taking the necessary education courses and I got my real estate sales person license in 2013. Since receiving my license I have been associated with Ortmeier & Associates, Inc since October 2013 as a sales person. I retired fully from the banking field in October 2014 and have been with Ortmeier & Associates Inc. ever since. I grew up on a farm in southeast South Dakota and graduated from South Dakota State University. My wife Janet and I have 2 grown children and 9 grand-children. I’ve enjoyed my association with Ortmeier’s realty and especially enjoy helping first time home buyers purchase and move into their first home.
After earning my Real Estate Salesperson’s license from Randall School of Real Estate in 2002 I began working for Ortmeier and Associates Inc. I grew up in Gothenburg Nebraska and attended Kearney State College.
My husband Steve and I moved to West Point in 1992. We have three grown children and are enjoying 2 Grandchildren. I would love to help you with any of your Real Estate needs, whether buying or selling.
