I ignite my real estate sales by: I've found, especially the last few years, that whenever we put a family event on the calendar and begin to plan for it, that buyers and sellers seem to come from everywhere and want to do business.
Favorite restaurant in fargo moorhead?: Barbara's Deli -- tuna salads and great desserts. McDonalds for the french fries.

One thing every homebuyer should keep in mind when searching for a home: Buying a home is an adventure that can run amuck.

Business integrity, honesty, experience, market knowledge, communication and listening skills and enthusiasm are all important attributes your agent needs to have.
Your favorite charity in fargo moorhead is and why?:University Lutheran Center at N.D.S.U. I've discovered through my involvement on the board that this is a great place for students to discover more about themselves and their faith, develop leadership skills, and become involved in ministries and projects that focus on the well being of others in need rather than self.
I've lived in the Fargo-Moorhead area my entire life--52 years.As much as I love living here, there are times when I'm envious of those that move awayto experience newsurroundings, climates, cultures and people. I thoroughly enjoy every opportunity I have to work with people transitioning to Fargo-Moorhead. They share their experiences with me while I introducethem to what a great place Fargo-Moorhead is to live and work. I love living on the edge of adventure. Helping people buy and sell homes -- provides all sorts of adventure. My goal is to make sure the adventure has a happy ending.
