I was born and raised on a farm south of Frankfort, SD. I attended High School in Redfield, SD and then went to college in Jamestown, ND and later Brookings, SD. I moved to Aberdeen in 1997 where I met my wife Stephanie. We started our family together and put our roots down here. I have 3 sons and a daughter. I've been active in coaching their youth soccer, football and wrestling teams over the years.

Single Parent Home Buying Guide Part 1: Should You Buy A Home?
Single Parent Home Buying Guide Part 1: Should You Buy A Home?

When you’re a single parent, it can seem as though the stakes are higher in just about every decision you make, or action you take. You may have all the family responsibility and little help with the most important issues. This can make a home-buying effort – a huge project by most people’s standards – feel downright Olympic. The Single Parent Home Buying Guide acknowledges the special difficulties you may face as a single parent, and helps with your particular challenges. This includes the decision to buy or rent, minimizing your costs, qualifying for your home loan, and how the entire process works, from start to finish. Our goal is helping you achieve a successful housing experience for you and your family. (Read More)
Single Parent Home Buying Guide - Part Two: How Much Does It Cost To Buy A Home?

When you buy a home as a single parent, especially if it is your first house, every dollar counts. As a renter, you're used to paying a security deposit and your first month’s rent upfront. But when you buy a home, the upfront costs are usually higher. Taking care of the legal and mortgage paperwork can be expensive, and you generally have a down payment and closing costs. Just remember that you are buying an asset to build your financial future. (Read more)

9 Homebuyer Strategies That Win Negotiation Stalemates

Heed this advice to broker a home deal in your favor.
Certain tricks give you the upper hand in life’s negotiations. One is to win the stare down. You know the drill: You state what you want, and the other person states what they want. Now you’re both staring at each other, seeing who’ll break the gaze — thereby losing — first.

Another has to do with price. It’s generally better to not be the first one to name it. Let the other person state how much something costs or how much they’re willing to pay you, and you can negotiate from there. Just watch any episode of Pawn Stars for proof. (Read more)

Highlight your home's strengths, downplay its weaknesses and appeal to the greatest possible pool of prospective buyers with these home-staging tips.
Bye, Bye Clutter
The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale is to get rid of clutter. Make a house rule that for every new item that comes in, an old one has to leave. One of the major contributors to a cluttered look is having too much furniture. When professional stagers descend on a home being prepped for market, they often whisk away as much as half the owner's furnishings, and the house looks much bigger for it. You don't have to whittle that drastically, but take a hard look at what you have and ask yourself what you can live without. (Read more)
The Poor Strategy of Pricing Above Market Value

Why Home Buyers Boycott Overpriced Listings

The way many real estate agents operate when advising a seller on home pricing is to present a seller with a range of prices, often a low sales price and a high sales price. The spread between the two prices will be relatively small. It's the home seller who selects the listed sales price, and it's the real estate agent who provides the information to help educate the seller. Although, you can see why many sellers will often gravitate to the high sales price.
That's just human nature. (Read more)

4 Ways The Real Estate Market Changes After Labor Day

The summer home-buying frenzy wanes after Labor Day, but you can still take advantage of what the fall season offers.
The time between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, unofficially known as fall, is prime time for enjoying the great outdoors. And while there’s no substitute for spending time in natural green spaces, if you’re in the market for a house, fall weather presents an ideal backdrop for strolling through potential neighborhoods and checking out real estate for sale in Atlanta, GA, or Minneapolis, MN.

Who Represents You in a Real Estate Transaction?
Be a Detective: Google the Address When House Hunting

It doesn't hurt to be a little curious — especially when you're searching for a new home.Search-engine sleuthing is worth the effort to unearth the niceties — and perhaps negatives — when searching for your new home.

There’s probably not a day that goes by that you don’t Google something — the weather, a foreign phrase, directions, or news, just to name a few. With all the information Google can provide through its bird’s eye view, not Googling your address is practically a crime — especially when you’re searching for a new home (whether you are house-hunting for a waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale, FL, or looking for a ranch house in Houston, TX). Here’s what you could find. (Read more)
