HOW did you start in Real Estate? We began our marriage journey in May of 1982. Coleen was working at KMTV in the production department and Bill was working at Millard Lumber estimating lumbers for buildings. On our 1-year wedding anniversary in 1983, we decided it was time to purchase our first home. After some negative experience with various real estate agents, we bought our first house for one dollar down (and 18% interest!) FOR SALE BY OWNER! Shortly after, Bill was challenged by some friends to study for his real estate license. It was shortly after receiving his license in 1983, that Bill quit working for Millard Lumber and we have been 100% commission based since working FULLTIME in Real Estate! We have three wonderful kids. Our oldest Daughter, a nurse, is a co-admin of a Regional Heart Clinic in North Platte - wife, and mother of 3. Our other daughter is in her last year of veterinarian medicine, and married to Logan Twist, who is also on our real estate team. Josiah is a busy 22 year old in many jobs and gaining knowledge for future careers.
WHY are we known as the HOUSE MOVER? After developing a subdivision, Bill was told about a Colonial house that needed moving! Of course, he again took on the challenge of the many legalities to move it over three days and 2 nights from 156th & Dodge. We have lived in 3 other properties, and know the hassles of moving, and even the burden of owning two houses at the same time (and the expenses of that!)
Although Bill grew up in the Omaha area, Coleen grew up on a farm in South Dakota, on a chicken farm gathering 2-3000 eggs a day! She came to Omaha to attend and graduate from Grace College and is excellent at being in the office as a support staff to our team. She is delighted to now have Dinette in the office helping with the all the compliance paperwork!
