Lis grew up on a farm in eastern South Dakota. When she married John in 1979 she was working as a dental hygienist and soon joined him in his work. She quickly discovered that she loved interacting with the landowners, and has since developed into a forty-year career in land records, title search and land aggregation. Lis would tell you the very best part of her career has been the relationships with clients and landowners.
In addition to land work, Lis and John are fortunate to continue her parent’s legacy of raising world class horses known as Frenchmans Quarter Horses. This family of horses has been inducted into both the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and the Pro-Rodeo Hall of Fame. Their horses reside alongside deer, antelope, elk and turkeys on their ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
