We moved to Lawrence in 1985. Our three children (now grown and with children of their own) went through the Lawrence School System and have now moved on with their own lives. When our youngest started Middle School I became a Realtor and have been selling real estate in Lawrence and surrounding areas for over 20 years.
I have worked along side Rod in his Residential Construction business as a sounding board for new ideas and to analyze market trends for new houses. On his spec houses I made final selections for paint colors, tile, granite, flooring, etc.
I love meeting people, listening to their stories, and helping them in buying or selling a home. There are many aspects in buying or selling a home and I love being there to guide my clients through the process.
I became a Realtor in the spring on 2012, after quite a few years of Betty telling me we would make a great Real Estate Team.
I graduated from Kansas State University with a professional degree of Bachelor of Interior Architecture.
I have been building homes in Lawrence since the late 80’s. For the last 15 years I have been designing and building homes as ROD WENGER INC. I have worked one on one with buyers in giving advice, designing their home or remodel project, building codes, and other aspects of the building business.
My hands-on experience in almost every aspect of residential, light commercial construction, and remodeling has given me a lot of practical experience for use in real estate.
Working together has been a life long adventure. Now as we join our expertise as a team in real estate, we feel together we have much to offer the people who choose to work with us.
We became a team at the Lawrence Keller Williams Realty Diamond Partners, Inc. office in the spring of 2012.
We know that each Buyer has different and unique requirements for purchasing a home. Our responsibility is to listen to all of your concerns. Through the process of listening to your wants and needs and showing you houses, we can get to know you well enough to help you find your new home.
When you are ready to sell your home (move up, downsize, relocate, or just want a different home) we feel that we can be of service to you. We understand where the market is and will advise how to best market your home. From CMA (Comparative Market Analysis), recommendations on improvements, how to prepare for open houses, and especially to be your adversary in getting the SOLD sign on your house, we will be with you every step of the way.
Our combined knowledge, experience, and commitment in the Lawrence market makes us a special Real Estate Team and we would like to be of service to you. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, we’d love the opportunity to work with you! We strive to give great service because our clients deserve the best!
