Chad Milton and Darrell Lakvold (lake-vold) knew each other prior to starting their careers in Real Estate over 20 years ago. They both had the same part-time job while attending college. Neither knew at that time that their paths would later cross.
After graduating LSU, Darrell started his career in the field of appraisal working with local appraiser, Dave Englund. Then, in 1994 he opened his own appraisal practice which he still owns and operates today. Around that time, Chad began working for one of the larger Real Estate companies in Baton Rouge, DSK Realtors (which later merged with Burns and Company Realtors). Shortly thereafter, the two became reacquainted after Darrell and his wife reached out to Chad for assistance with buying their new home.
Since this time their relationship has consisted of almost daily communication about the local Real Estate market. Realizing the advantage this relationship would allow their future clients, the decision to combine resources just made sense. “There are things about our industry that are wonderful and there are things that are definite head-scratchers. Both of which most consumers probably aren’t aware of” says Chad. We want to make it our mission to educate our clients on the pertinent issues that influence their real estate decisions and we feel we’re in the best possible position to do so.
