My husband John and I work together as TEAM GOEDE. Quality Customer Service is my focus! After joining my husband as a Century 21 agent a few years ago, I found that my 24 years' experience as a Customer Service Account Executive translated well to the real estate business. As a member of our team, I strive to uphold the philosophy of treating people right, and doing the best I can to meet...

My Community Involvement
- A life-changing two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in South Korea, immediately after graduation from the University of South Dakota, led to my first community volunteer experience. We moved to Iowa, and Spencer, just in time for then-Governor Ray's decision to offer a home to Laotian and other refugees from Southeast Asia in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. John and I eagerly served on our church's committee to aid the family our church had sponsored. Tutoring them in English, which eventually led to employment with the local schools, was a wonderful way for me to apply the skills I learned in the Peace Corps. I also enjoyed participating in Spencer Community Theater and remain a great supporter and fan (though not on stage!). My love of music, especially singing, was fulfilled not only through church choir, but also membership in a national women's music organization. Our local branch produced an annual choral concert where we could all indulge our love of performance, and of course we invited men to participate. My husband John was always part of the show. Over the years I was active in the RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) project in Spencer through helping organize and work on an annual book sale. Since reading is my passion, that was a natural choice for me. Today, some of those organizations have gone away; but I find that the real estate business can be equally rewarding. We are helping people manage their futures, and being involved with our community's future at the same time!
