Reggie Kuipers is a principal of Bender Commercial Real Estate Services who has guided several noteworthy deals during his career and has experience acquiring, leasing, and selling all types of commercial real estate.
As a native South Dakotan, Reggie attended and graduated from the University of Sioux Falls in 2006 with a business administration degree with minors in finance and marketing. While there, he played for the Cougars on the men’s golf team.
Reggie began his sales career in college by selling insurance with Miller & Associates in his hometown of Platte, South Dakota as well as with Insurance Solutions in Sioux Falls.
