At the heart of Fisher & Co. Real Estate are two bold sisters who bring their unique strengths to the table, forming a partnership that blends experience and knowledge.
With over 30 years in real estate combined, Danielle Konechne and Dana Fisher have crafted a narrative of success that reflects their dedication to serving their clients.
Previously known as Fisher Sisters Real Estate, the siblings wanted to reflect their mission of enhancing the lives of their clients into a new brand.
“Our main goal was to improve the quality and status of our brand, matching the mission of our company,” said Fisher. “We aimed for it to be clean, stately, aesthetically pleasing, and overall elevated. I think we’ve been able to achieve that.”
With the help of their director of operations, Jenny McMillen, the real estate company was able to take on their new persona.
“My strengths are organizing and checklists, so once I had our foundation I went to work with the building blocks,” said McMillen. “It was a lot of work, but very rewarding to see the final results.”
Fisher added, “She was able to take our ideas and put them into motion. We were able to use our own talent that’s local and in-house. Jenny is the backbone of our business.”
Award Winning Duo
Fisher & Co. was awarded Best of Sioux Falls Real Estate Agency in 2019 and 2020.
The sisters’ goal and mission of their firm stand the test of time, stating that they’re committed to improving the lives of their clients and communities throughout the Sioux Falls area.
“We hold a high level of service and have a hands-on approach throughout the process,” said Fisher. “It’s very helpful since many people who are buying or selling a property are stressed or have busy lives.”
For Fisher and Konechne, buying or selling a home or property is more than just a transaction; it’s a life-changing experience for their clients.
This philosophy drives the pair to go the extra mile to understand their clients’ distinct needs, preferences, and aspirations, allowing them to calm clients’ nerves.
“When buyers and sellers meet with us, we discuss the challenges and benefits and help advise them,” shared Fisher. “We build a level of trust with expertise and strong skill sets and I think that puts our clients at ease.”
Konechne continued, “We’re not just selling a home. We’re helping people create and achieve a new lifestyle to make life easier. Sometimes people need more efficient space, or they need to downsize, or they’re combining households.”
“I’ve been with Dana & Danielle for eight years. Throughout that time, I’ve felt incredibly valued & that I make a difference, not only in their business, but in their personal lives.” -Jenny Mcmillen
As well as selling real estate, the dynamic duo offers a concierge service, aiding in a smooth transaction for everyone.
“We’re a full spectrum-type of company,” said Konechne. “Whether our clients need contractors, help with movers, affiliates to come touch up details before listing a house, or a staging service. There are just many moving parts to everybody’s real estate needs.”
Fisher continued, “We often work with clients who want an advisor and someone to care for them and a high level of service.”
Every interaction is marked by professionalism, dedication, and a comprehensive understanding of the unique demands of the real estate market.
“Danielle and I know exactly how many homes or properties are on the market, how many are pending, what the average days on the market are, what price range is selling quickly, and what changes are taking place in Sioux Falls,” said Fisher.

“It’s helpful to have all of the market information, the comparable sales, and all of the data at their fingertips, so they can make the best decision for themselves right now,” explained Fisher.
