I was raised on a ranch west of Buffalo, S.D. and still have a love of the land and the farm/ranch way of life. An interest in the farm/ranch area of real estate naturally follows my upbringing. Newell, S.D. was where I spent the bulk of my career in teaching and coaching. During my 31 year tenure in the Newell School District, I was also active with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes with the high school students, as well as being involved in local church leadership, and church youth work. I retired from the Newell School District in 2003 and moved to Belle Fourche in 2004. Within a year or so of moving to Belle Fourche, I became involved with the local football program on the high school and youth levels. Currently, I am the Head Football Coach at Belle Fourche Middle School. My wife and I have served as Huddle Leaders for the Belle Fourche High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes for several years as well. In 2006, I received my South Dakota Real Estate License, and have had the privilege of being a party to residential, land, and commercial sales transactions. The principles of faith, family, and integrity are the foundation of what I want to guide me in life and in each real estate transaction I am involved in. I hope you will allow the agents at Dakota Home and Ranch Real Estate the privilege of assisting you with your real estate needs.
