About Shauna

Your home demands that you invest in a trusted partner equipped to walk you through the often emotional process of passing your home on to its next owner. I hired Dave Kahler as my realtor in 2009 and soon realized that was what I was meant to do after staying home with my kids for 15 years. I have been helping families with their real estate needs since 2014 and I work with the best team! We streamline the process from beginning to end, listen to you and take care of your specific needs. Giving you peace of mind, confidence, and a clear understanding throughout the entire transaction is top priority. I was raised by two amazing parents who gave me a strong work ethic, taught me the importance of customer service and modeled integrity to the highest degree. My husband, David, and I were born and raised in Nebraska. We graduated from UNL in 1995 and after a few military moves, we landed in Rapid City in 2006 when David took a full-time position with the South Dakota Army National Guard. We have three amazing grown children and stay active in our church and community. Fun Fact: I was selected to represent Rapid City on House Hunters in 2017. #claimtofame I look forward to partnering with you on the sale or purchase of your home.

Janet VanNuys
South Dakota Properties
About Janet

Living in the Black Hills, surrounded by beauty and opportunity, is a privilege. My husband, daughter, and I have enjoyed that privilege for the last 16 years. Over that time, I have helped hundreds of people buy, sell, or both. It is so rewarding to assist people from all walks of life make these transitions. The Rapid City/Black Hills market is a vibrant and stable one. With 751 total active residential listings at the time of this writing, an average home price of $212,578, and 72 average days on market, home ownership can be within the reach of so many. As my client, you would be in the capable hands of an easy-going and trustworthy agent, known for her ability to negotiate concessions that put you in the best position possible. If you are a buyer, I will work with you for no upfront cost, since sellers in the MLS in our market pay my commission. If you are a seller, I have excellent marketing reach to get your home sold in a short time. Through social media, my website, consistent follow-up and open houses, your property will get national exposure. I am an Advantage Pro member of Realtor.com to give listings premium visibility, and I am a member of the Referral Exchange and can help you find the best agent if you are moving out of the area. There is no neighborhood in the Rapid City and Black Hills area that is off limits to explore. I am available evenings and weekends and even some holidays-whenever my clients are free and need to see property or see me. At the end of the day, when you are selling or buying one of the most important assets of your life, you will be in good hands with me as your agent.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Rapid City?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Rapid City is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
