After owning a successful business for over fourteen years, I decided to step forward and pursue my longtime dream. It’s not just real estate that I am passionate about, but helping people and families find the right home for them. Home is the comfort zone, it’s our soft place to land, it’s where we raise our children and create memories. My goal in the real estate business is to not only help people find the right home for them but to assist in selling properties that have been more than just a house, properties that have been a home.
I chose to join Kevin Butcher’s team not only for it’s fine reputation in the real estate industry, but also for the personal service and attention to detail provided in every transaction. Being associated with Edina Realty provides even more education and resources for a successful buying or selling experience.
I am proud to work with residential clients as well as rural, farm and land buyers and sellers.
As a family we enjoy downhill skiing, hunting, fishing and watersports at the cabin. We also enjoy simply just being together for a family game night or an evening around the camp fire.
