Nancy Rusk Applebe developed a love of the country as a child raised on a cattle ranch and rice farm in Southeast Texas. As an adult, Nancy began investing in country properties in her twenties. The goal was simple – buy, fix up, sell, “move up”. Many properties later, Nancy decided to share her knowledge and experience with others as a real estate agent. Now Broker / Owner of Applebe Ranch Homes Realty, Nancy has an opportunity to serve clients on many levels. “Many of my clients are retirees’ or ‘soon to be’s’ looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Most clients are new to country living and are seeking guidance. “I enjoy helping folks with the journey.”
Sonny Applebe is known to most as an individual who won’t quit and enjoys a challenge. Many of the properties listed for clients have obstacles to overcome. Overgrown weeds and grass, fallen limbs and trees must be dealt with in order to show a property’s full potential. Sonny’s years in the heavy equipment construction business make him the “go to” person to deal with such matters. Sonny’s knowledge of land clearing, road building and pond and lake excavation and construction are an added advantage to having him working on clients’ behalf. Additionally, Sonny draws on his a history in cattle ranching and management for clients’ benefit.
