I have been an owner in the property management business for 10 years ( www.StayInTheHills.com ) with Executive Lodging of the black Hills, specializing in high end vacation homes. That naturally led to getting into the real estate business in 2011 starting the Executive Properties Team ( www.BuyInTheHills.com ) out of Deadwood specializing in vacation investment properties be it lots or vacation homes. Knowing what will produce great returns and where it should be located and local regulations on allowing rentals is very important and that is what I do. In 2012 I purchased the old "Roo Ranch" outside of Deadwood and turned it into a business park. That is where our offices are now located. No one has more experience in knowing both the property management and real estate end of vacation home investment.
