I was born in Stillwater, MN and except for time away at the University of Minnesota and as Sales Representative for General Mills, I have been a life-long resident of Washington County, MN. I have lived in Woodbury, MN since 1990, with my wife of over 30 years Deb, and our three now adult children, Josh, Noah and Maggie.
My work in sales with General Mills and as a funeral director prepared me well for this career. Taking a consultative approach, where listening and asking good questions is far more important than talking, has always been my style because this helps me align fully with my clients long term goals. My entire focus is on helping my clients achieve maximized results by doing more and being better at this work than other Realtors are willing or able to be. I am grateful for the trust my clients place in me, and I make sure their trust is well placed. Seen properly, I realize that the work I do as a real estate agent is critically important to the people I serve, so I work smartly and generously, in order to deliver every possible advantage to them.
I am a busy, full time Realtor, but not one who markets themselves so much that my service to my clients suffers. It is good to work with a Realtor who is active, but NOT one who is in this primarily to make money for themselves. This work is too important to the people I serve than for me to ever take this approach.
People, through the evidence of their patronage of me and what they say about me seem to like my approach very much. I have been named "Super Real Estate Agent" by MPLS/ST. PAUL and Twin Cities Business Monthly Magazines thirteen times now, and I have received many volume awards too. But the satisfaction of my clients will always be the most important thing to me.
