About Kate

My background
I grew up on a cattle ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota. As a young girl, I learned farming, ranching and land brokerage from my father and grandfather who owned a tri-state agricultural and pasture land brokerage firm. I have three grown children and seven lovely grandchildren in whose education and welfare I participate fully. My family is very important to me, and I work hard to insure their well-being.

Bachelor's Degree in English with a minor in Communications & Debate and course work in Interior Design.

Professional Philosophy I see myself as a stable, reliable person who really puts the welfare of my clients first. I care about each of you in a very personal way. I have a real passion for this business, and I believe that shows in the service that I provide for my clients. I am very service oriented. My clients can rest assure that I will provide a smooth path for them through the entire buyer or selling process, having their needs and interest at heart.
