Monica grew up on a farm near Shelly, MN and graduated from Halstad High School and Moorhead State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications/Advertising. She worked in the Marketing/ Advertising field for over 25 years including advertising agencies where she managed local, national and international accounts. However, the most important and rewarding job Monica has ever had is being a Mother.

When her son was 5 years old, she sold her townhouse and bought a “fixer-upper” house just a couple blocks from an elementary school. The two of them (yes, a mother and her 5-year-old) ripped out all the carpet and painstakingly removed thousands of staples from the hardwood floors. Although their home is still a work in progress, valuable lessons have been learned through home ownership. Patience, budget, painting tips, lawn care, tree trimming, how to fix things yourself – and when it’s better to call in a professional. She is adamant that her next house will be move-in-ready!

Her son is now a teenager so most of her free time is usually spent trying to keep up with him and his activities, as well as trying to keep the gas tank filled! They can most likely be found spending time with family and friends, participating at various church activities, and volunteering throughout the community.

Monica loves being a part of the Hatch Realty family. As the Office Manager, she uses her keen attention to detail to keep the office running smoothly and everyone on track. She is truly happy for each one of our clients and she is grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of their home buying experience.
