Born and raised on a farm in North Dakota, I graduated from Mayville State Teachers College, Mayville, North Dakota with a Bachelor of Science degree in education. After graduating, I moved to Minnesota to teach in west central Minnesota for over 20 years. I then left education to become a farm equipment dealer. After the economic downturn of the 80’s I was one of the first five individuals chosen to start a state AURI office in Morris, Minnesota that supported rural product creation and economic development. After 8 years, I left this organization and did a number of things: consulting; then later to travel the upper Midwest for approximately 8 years acquiring land for large wind farms. In between these times I became a licensed real estate sales individual, was the Mayor of Benson, Minnesota, and on many area boards and commissions in the community. All these experiences prepared me to clearly understand trends, human experiences and of course selling in a rural setting. Though the life experiences broadened my horizons, team work enables all of us at Hughes Real Estate and Auction Service (with our varied experiences and abilities) to help you market your real estate. No question should go unanswered. Please feel free to call me at 320-760-2820 to discuss any of your real estate sales or inquiries.
