Two big players at Keller Williams Realty Sioux Falls have combined forces.

The Allen Edge Real Estate Team, led by Tara Allen, has merged with The Jeff Merrill Team.

The new team will keep the Allen Edge name and include nine agents and two executive assistants with plans to grow.

“Our two groups have been collaborating successfully for a couple of years now, and our merger was the next logical step for us,” Allen said.

If the team had been in place last year, it would have sold more than 200 houses.

“It brings both cultures together as one united team,” Merrill said. “When we go outside into the marketplace, we’re now able to use the combined results and experiences we each have.”

Allen started in real estate in 2012 and quickly ascended to the top of the industry, being named the rookie of the year for Keller Williams companywide.

Merrill has more than 18 years of real estate experience.

“His ultimate goal has always been the client’s satisfaction and being there every step of the way, which is exactly what Allen Edge has created through our systems, models and specialized team,” Allen said.
