About Jyl Duffy

I love being a REALTOR and Office Administrator for Johnson Home and Land. There's no place like home here in Wyoming. This is home even though I enjoyed living in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina previously. With my husband, Dave, when we're not busy working we enjoy our Christian activities and being out of doors fly fishing, camping, golfing or snow shoeing. Wyoming is the best place to be for our active outdoor lifestyle.

    This is great information! With all the doom and gloom we are hearing about the economy it have never been more important to maintain our perspective. Wyoming’s economy is still strong and our housing market is still appreciating. We have a healthy, gradual appreciation so we should not experience the correction that so many other markets are going through.
