During the past 16 years it has been my honor and privilege to serve the great people in the town where I grew up. I enjoy working with families where I can share our stories. I have a unique perspective, as I can explain how Rochester has developed over the years.
I have based my real estate business on the foundation of "service before self," with a common goal of solving my client's real estate needs in their best interest.
My "results-driven" education began during my early days fund raising, and developing marketing campaigns within Marketing Club, Public Relations Student Society, and two college newspapers. Later, I used my advertising and public relations skills with WCCO -TV and AT&T.
Today, I use these well tested skills to help my clients RELAX by helping make the process of buying, and selling, real estate in Rochester and SE Minnesota a fun and pleasant experience. (View "Client Reviews" Tab) Since 2003, I have successfully guided my clients along the journey of Rochester & SE MN New Home Construction, Rochester Minnesota Luxury Homes and Residential Real Estate, with the same care and expertise, as I would for my own family. As a Rochester native, I know the community and the unique market dynamics. As the local market expert, I have a wide range of real estate experience, from luxury homes, new home developments, new construction, acreages, rural properties and bank owned foreclosure inventory. This experience brings a wealth of knowledge to buyers to help find an area, and a home, that is perfect for their needs. As a member of the Minnesota Association of Realtors, and the SE Minnesota Association of Realtors, I act according to Realtor Code of Ethics, and perform my fiduciary duties as described by the National Association of Realtors.
