Our Team

Bonnie has been in the business management and marketing industry for over 29 years. The last 10 have been spent in real estate, so she has a firm grasp on the ever changing real estate market as well as keeps up on the trends and technology that is required for successful marketing of homes. She owes her love of homes to her dad who was a contractor and she spent time on job sights, looking over blueprints and watching the home building process. Being a native to Otter Tail and Wadena counties all her life she is very versed in the area and has beneficial knowledge whether it be residential homes, lakeshore, ag and recreational land and commercial. Proud to be independently and locally owned, she enjoys improving the communities and building relationships that don't end after the transaction is over.
