Services Available

In order to be successful and have longevity in the real estate business, it is essential to have certain basic systems in place. I have the ability to deliver services to my clients that ensure smooth and seamless transactions. One such service involves creatively marketing property so that “your” home stands out from all the others on the market. Another invaluable service I provide is access to a tried and true list of resources that includes experienced loan officers, stagers, inspectors, roofers, plumbers, electricians and closers. Finally I offer negotiating skills---the skills that make the deal come together so that in the end the buyers are happy, the sellers are happy and everyone walks away feeling really positive about the whole experience.

Business Philosophy

My business philosophy is very simple. My goal is that every customer have a positive experience both when buying and selling a home. By understanding the unique needs of the market, I can help reduce the stress and anxiety that can accompany a major move. In order to achieve a smooth transition, I have compiled a wealth of resources for the benefit of my home buying and selling customers in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Whether it be a first time move or downsizing or re-locating or just looking to move closer to family and friends and have access to recreational activities, always, always…my clients are Number One and I will be there with them every step of the way.
