Sonny Applebe is known to most as an individual who won’t quit and enjoys a challenge. Many of the properties listed for clients have obstacles to overcome. Overgrown weeds and grass, fallen limbs and trees must be dealt with in order to show a property’s full potential. Sonny’s years in the heavy equipment construction business make him the “go to” person to deal with such matters. Sonny’s background in ranching and longtime career in heavy equipment construction, gives him special knowledge and insight into “dirt”. Sonny earned his sales agent license in 2009. Clients enjoy Sonny’s insight into elements of land. He sees potential others may overlook and he shares his concerns when necessary. Sonny’s knowledge of land clearing, road building and pond and lake excavation and construction are an added advantage to having him working on clients’ behalf. Additionally, Sonny draws on his a history in cattle ranching and management for clients’ benefit.
