Have you met Dick and Sandy Willis, our September 2013 Agents of the Month? If you live or work near Wayzata, there is a good chance that you have. Dick and Sandy’s family are 3rd generation Wayzata students. Dick and Sandy both attended and graduated from Wayzata Schools. When they attended there was one school in the district. Today there are 7 elementary schools, 3 middle schools and 1 high school and growing. Dick and Sandy’s three children attended and graduated from Wayzata schools and now their grandchildren attend or will be attending Wayzata schools.
Dick and Sandy have been with Roger Fazendin REALTORS® for a combined 54 years! They are proud of their association with Roger Fazendin REALTORS®, a 3rd generation family owned residential real estate company.
The biggest change they have experienced while living and working in Wayzata is growth. Dick and Sandy grew up on the same street – Chicago Avenue and were next door neighbors. And today their desks are right next to each other. Sandy says that she has known Dick since she was 9 years old – they have always been a good team and the teamwork continues today.
Sandy is good at the planning, networking, sharing, inviting and ideas. Dick is good at the details, the paperwork, the negotiations and transactions. They are well respected by their co-workers and clients and they definitely know how to get the job done! Owner Dan Fazendin says that “Willie” has the best work ethic of any agent ever – we always know he’s going to be in the office.
While this is their work and their career – they enjoy having fun. They enjoy meeting people and helping people. Many of their friends are former clients and they have always had good support. They seem to connect with people wherever they go whether it’s through church friends, athletics, bicycle group or traveling – you realize what a small world it is and how fun it is to make a connection and make a difference for clients.
When asked if they have plans of retiring or stopping – their answer in unison was we have no plans to stop – we want to continue to have fun!
Congratulations Dick and Sandy Willis on being named Agents of the Month again! Your work ethic, your wisdom and expertise make a difference for many – thanks for continuing to have fun in your career and for sharing the fun with us!
