"Our agents pride themselves in providing their clients with the best service in the area. Let Black Hills Realty be your personal real estate agent..."

TJ Wojtanowicz, Broker/Owner

Over a decade of experience in real estate, TJ is a name well recognized in the local real estate market. Beginning with door-to-door meetings with neighbors and cold calls, TJ jumped right in recognizing the potential of the industry for growing a business and helping buyers and sellers.

After a couple years at a small firm, he expanded his business to include property management and investments. Brokering his own firm was a next step in achieving a process for buyers and sellers that reflects how he does business, efficiently, and with a client first mindset. Many of the buyers and sellers that work with TJ are repeat clients. They enjoy his laid-back and honest approach while admiring his hard work ethic and outside-the-box solutions.

Outside the office, TJ finds himself just as busy, if not more! Husband to wife, Angelica and father to five children, he is often running to sporting events and showing houses all in the same trip across town. His family enjoys spending time on the lake in the summer, attending sporting events, participating in church and school activities, and hanging at home.

“There are 24 hours in a day! Wake up early, go to bed late, occasionally relax, and repeat.” -TJ

Angelica Wojtanowicz, Agent

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!).  

“If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right!”

Nick Dowling, Agent

A long time resident of the area, Nick knows the area well and loves to share the beauty of the Black Hills with buyers and help sellers achieve their goals. Prior to becoming a Realtor, Nick spent time as an entrepreneur in the communications and construction industries, as well as the last four years in the health care industry.

This experience has made him knowledgeable in a broad spectrum of areas and strengthened his awareness for the necessity of a simplified buying and selling experience. Relationships are especially important to Nick and he works relentlessly to help clients achieve their goals. Problem solving is a key component to Nick’s success in real estate.

When not assisting buyers and sellers, he enjoys the time he has to spend with family and friends in the outdoors, barbeque nights in the backyard, and camping and hiking with his wife, Cristina.

“I believe that life is all about the experiences you have with the people around you. When you surround yourself with great people, great things tend to happen.” - Nick

Drew Yeoman, Agent

Having been in Real Estate for five years, Drew has made his name known in the industry as a fun-loving and charismatic agent. He is recently engaged to a Physical Education teacher, Melissa, at a local High School.

Drew has joined the Black Hills Realty office and enjoys the buying process, especially for First-Time Buyers. In addition to the buying process, he works as a listing agent for single family homes in Rapid City and surrounding areas.

Outside the office he enjoys working with youth in the area, coaching Black Hills Youth Football and even taking a team to the “Super Bowl” tournament. Drew enjoys working on his 1950 GMC Pickup, catching a warm day at the golf course, working on home improvements and spending time with family and pets!

Learning and reading about the market is important to Drew, and allows him to keep a cutting edge perspective on the needs and desires of buyers and sellers in the area. Every situation bears a solution, and every transaction is important to our office.

“The reward and satisfaction you get from helping other people is like no other. That's what motivates me! Black Hills Realty is a team focused agency and when “you work with one of us, you have all of us working for you!” -Drew

Suzette Pickar, Agent

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.
