Each month we are going to feature a local business in Keokuk for delivering outstanding services to the community. We are proud to work, or network with these businesses and would like to share our experiences with them, with you.
It’s hard for me to remember the exact moment or place where I met Vicki Briscoe, owner of Cramer Real Estate as she’s always out and about in the community. But ever I since I met her I’ve been impressed with her work ethic and the real estate services she provides. We decided to partner together on her business and personal insurance policies and she has been a pleasure to work with.
This month I am excited to share the story and services of Cramer Real Estate, owned and operated by Vicki Briscoe in Keokuk.
About Cramer Real Estate
Cramer Real Estate has been a family-operated business since 1972 and Vicki Briscoe has been involved at the company since 1974! It’s safe to share she nearly been there since the beginning. She began working in real estate as a secretary with Cramer Real Estate and then continued to move into various positions around the office as her experience grew and she got her real estate license. Soon she was promoted to office manager and eventually became an owner five years ago. She’s happy to keep the family-business going and currently gets to work with both her son and daughter-in-law and a few other employees that feel like family, having been with the business for over 25 years.
Making Keokuk real estate down-to-earth
What makes Cramer Real Estate unique is the home-like feeling every person who walks through their door receives. They are a down-to-earth group that strives on providing real estate services to people of all backgrounds and homeowners of all budgets.
Vicki has been working and living in Keokuk all her life and her favorite part of being here is her family. “I have four grandkids, they are all teenagers and two are graduating this year,” Vicki shared.
While Vicki enjoys her downtime with her family after work, many of the Cramer Real Estate employees volunteer with various organizations throughout Keokuk. Two of her sales team members are auctioneers and enjoy providing their auctioneer services at a lot of charity auctions; one employee is on the Keokuk Library Board and another employee is on the Arts and Cultural Board.
