Born & Raised in the Black Hills, Angelica has seen Rapid City and its surrounding areas evolve and flourish. She played a vital role in the growth of downtown Rapid City as the owner and operator of Shangri-La, a women’s clothing boutique. After 8 years of successfully running this business, Angelica decided it was time to move onto the next chapter. Angelica’s attention to detail, loyalty to her clientele, and pursuit of excellence laid the foundation for her next endeavor.
Angelica and her husband TJ have always been a team. Raising 5 children together while both running successful businesses has been a balancing act that takes organization, multitasking, an impressive work ethic, patience… and more patience. After Angelica closed the doors of the Shangri-La, she and TJ decided to take their teamwork to the next level and work together when they opened up their own Real Estate Firm, Black Hills Realty. Angelica found that her detail-oriented nature and love for design transferred seamlessly into Real Estate. When she & TJ started several projects (flips, developments, building, consulting, etc.) it became very clear that Angelica had a knack for Real Estate.
Angelica & TJ have made the Black Hills their forever home, which is an amazing place to raise a family. Through the experience of raising their own family here, Angelica has gained invaluable knowledge of Rapid City that helps her better serve her clients, such as, school districts, neighborhoods, shopping and amenities to make it easy to guide others when finding their homes. This is more than business; Angelica makes it personal. She will always go the extra mile to make sure the role she plays in your home buying experience is nothing less than exceptional.
(An added note…You’re not seeing double; her twin sister Ana also lives in Rapid City!).

Having been born and raised in Piedmont South Dakota by two self-employed parents, Suzette learned early on what it takes to run a business and how to establish good customer relationships. At age 14 she began as a sales associate for their store, Alex Johnson Mercantile. Upon high school graduation Suzette attended and received her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing in 2002 from the University of Montana-Missoula.
After college she moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to pursue a career in banking. However, she left banking and Minnesota behind to raise her two incredible children in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Her love for Rapid City and the surrounding area provided her the opportunity to promote “home” as a tourist destination all over the nation and that enthusiasm landed her smack dab in the middle of Downtown Rapid City where she helped coordinate the Downtown Association. Her passion and love for the community is what thrills her with her latest venture in Real Estate.
Selling homes is something Suzette has always dreamed of doing and now life has allowed her to pursue her passion of helping people find a little piece of the Black Hills to call home.
