Ross & Associates Realtor, L.L.C. is more than a real estate agency. They also provide property management services, new construction and whole home remodeling. Duane and Brian Ross, father and son, started the business as a real estate broker in 1995. Brian soon expanded the business by obtaining a builder’s license.

Joining Ross & Associates in real estate is Broker, Dale McNabb and Real Estate Associates, Brooke Stevenson, Barbara Rogers, Dale Ernst and Kelly Miller. In addition to being a Real Estate Associate, Kelly Miller is also the office manager and coordinates the rental property management.

Ross & Associates Professional Property Management Services has over 70 area rental units for which they provide services. About half of the units are owned by Ross & Associates, the rest are privately owned residential and commercial properties that are managed by them. As property managers, they collect rents, vet perspective tenants, show units, and maintain the property for the owners.

Brian Ross steers the construction and remodeling side of the business. Available construction services offered include new home building, additions, pole barn installations, new and replacement roofs, kitchen and bath remodeling, new siding and decks. Brian advises that the construction and remodeling business is really brisk at the moment and they are looking to hire qualified, experienced carpenters.
