Meet the Team!
It all started back in 2013...
when Dawn was tired of paying a lot of money for one or two features across many products. For the first time in 25 years, more time was spent behind the computer learning software and less time working directly with clients and prospects building and maintaining her business. She wanted a simple and easy interface to organize her contacts, stay present and accessible via social media & email while managing herself in her business. As with most successful products, from this frustration, Yapster was born. Riann & Dawn spent some time understanding the problem space, vetting their idea with other real estate agents and loan officers. From that, they learned the problem was real and they were just the team to solve it!
Riann Stroud, Top Dog
Riann has spent over 16 years in the world of Information Security. Prior to being surrounded by acronyms and earning accreditations she was raised in Evansville & graduated from Westood College in Denver Colorado. If you were to ask her Chocolate or peanut butter? Duh! Her response would be ‘why not both?’. She enjoys some light hacking and things related sports & corvettes. While in Vegas she might bet it all on Black, throw down Rock in a heated Rock, Paper, Scissors battle and ‘without a doubt’ look to the magic eight ball for all life decisions. Her best experience to date, is co-founding My Yappy Dog, Inc. and proving her dad right: ‘you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it’!
Dawn Schnaiter, Chief Yapster
Dawn eats sleeps and lives real estate! Need I go on? Recently celebrating her 26th successful year in real estate she manages to find time to vacation and enjoy several activities including - swimming, skiing, boating and fishing. Oh, and of course, hanging out with her favorite "min pin" whom excels at many of the same hobbies! It would be hard for Dawn to meet a stranger. She is a bit of an organic-tarian, she loves dark chocolate, dark organic coffee and of course when reaching for a snack she goes for the ever popular Flax Chip! Being a problem solver by nature, the Rubiks cube will be solved – all six sides, but that will have to wait until after she changes the world in other, more impactful ways.
Jen Edds, Go To Girl
Jen is fueled by gratitude, curiosity, and the desire to help those around her succeed. She brings corporate inside and outside sales experience to the table, as well as a wheelhouse full of know-how she has developed while wearing the many hats of a small business owner.
Jen understands that The Struggle is Real when it comes to nurturing relationships with clients. This is why she is your “Go to Girl” at Yapster. Her mission is your success and making sure you’re getting the most out of Yapster.
When she’s not helping clients, you can usually find Jen practicing her guitar skills, listening to a podcast, or watching Star Wars.
