    I was born and raised in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, Il.  In 1980 my new husband and I, longing for a less hectic and more peaceful life became “urban refugees”.  We researched our options and finally decided on the Southern Black Hills, because of the  semi-arid and mild temperatures throughout the year, yet only an hours drive to snow skiing and snow mobiling in Lead. The Hills features something for everyone from Deadwood’s historic gaming town, Keystone’s Mount Rushmore and located only minutes to Wind Cave National Park, Custer State Park and thousands of acres of Black Hills  National Forest Service land. After all of these years, I am still in awe everyday, realizing we found everything we were ever looking for and more!  If you are looking for a place like this, look no further.  I would love to help you find your perfect place in the Hills!

    After graduating as one of the top students of my class at Western Dakota Institute, I was extremely fortunate to have been trained personally by one of our regions top Realtors, Keith Carlyle, while he was setting up what is now one of the fastest growing and most respected Real Estate Franchises in the Black Hills, The Real Estate Group, Inc.  In 2008 I was the top listing Agent in Hot Springs and I am also an Accredited Buyers Representative, and a Certified Negotiation Expert.  I am a dedicated and hard working Realtor, believing communication is essential in my relationship with my clients.  I strive to exceed your expectations until we find exactly what you are looking for, even if it is not my listing. With the right Realtor, dreams really can come true!
