I spent many years in the corporate world in projects management, team leadership , development and process consulting. I've been around the real estate and construction industry most of my life; with many of my family in the industry. I sharpened my skills working with a real estate investment company. In this position I served as a team liaison and coordinator in a cross functional collaborative environment which involved me in a large number of home rehabilitation projects. Needless to say I was often baptized by fire and thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and the mentoring I received.
In 2017; my husband Andrew and I began a Custom Home Building company and currently build residential homes in the metro and surrounding communities. We are no Chip and Joanna Gaines, the "Reality" of it is; this is not a scripted industry, there has to be a great deal of open and honest communication, team work, research, preperation and a strong drive and ability to see things thru.
We know hard work as we were both born and raised in the Midwest, raised our combined 5 sons here and understand the community we live in. We recognize value and work to provide that in all we do.
Bottom line ...my client's goals become my goals and I value their trust in me with these. Sometimes it means you wear a lot of hats ie. leader, confident, coach, strong project manager... sometimes devil's advocate and occasionally comedian to keep things light hearted. :)
We love to spend time with family, we enjoy getting out to eat and occassionaly we get to fish and sometimes travel. We have a golden lab named Midas; his only goal is to hunt and retrieve. He also has his own Facebook page - "Lab of Luxury", look him up and have your fur friend add our fur friend.

“Working with Poppy as my buyer’s agent was a pleasure. She is extremely competent, professional, and works with integrity while also being understanding and engaging. Poppy gave very helpful advice on the process and the neighborhood while I was searching for a home. Once I found a home, she helped negotiate a final purchase price below asking. Poppy also managed the rest of the process quickly and efficiently – inspection, negotiating repairs and radon mitigation with the sellers, and closing. The whole process was much easier and faster than I expected due to Poppy’s experience - I went from finding the home to closing in less than 6 weeks, and that included Christmas and New Year’s Day. I highly recommend Poppy to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Omaha / Council Bluffs area.” Scott Nelson
