More about Mike Lindgren
My business philosophy is simple: As you begin down the path of home ownership, you are embarking on one of the single greatest investments of your life. Everyone, regardless of purchase price, deserves a professional level of representation which is what I strive to provide to all of my clients. Choosing the right Agent to work with is just as important as choosing the right home for you and/or your family.
1. Good Enough Never Is-Whether we're talking about a specific home, or the service you receive from your Realtor, "Good Enough" should never be in the vocabulary. I'll do everything I can to find you the right home for you, not just one that is "Good Enough".
2. World Class is the Yardstick-I strive to provide the highest level of honest and ethical representation to every one of my clients, regardless of purchase price.
3. Automatic for the People-When it comes to finding the right home for you, I'll be proactive, not reactive.
I'm a life long Minnesotan, born and raised. Born in St. Paul, I spent my early years in the Como Park area before my parents moved us to White Bear Lake. I spent most of my childhood in White Bear and graduated from White Bear Lake Area High School. After High School I attended St. Cloud State University where I studied Broadcast Journalism, spending my free time covering the Men's Hockey Team for both the student radio and television stations. My professional career has been spent mostly in Customer Service related fields, making the transition to Real Estate a fairly simple one. I currently live in the Waite Park neighborhood in NE Minneapolis with my wife Emily and our 3 year old son Miles.
Education and Training
I believe that education plays a huge role in shaping a well round individual, and I don't say this just because I'm married to a teacher. Aside from the intense program I attended at Kaplan Professional Schools, I've also gained additional training and expertise through Coldwell Banker's Blue U Skill Builder program and their ongoing Agent development course. This helps me to stay up to date on market trends and the latest industry practices and provide you with the highest level of customer service.
