Wendy Uzelac - Broker/Owner and Team Lead of the Northwoods Team
Serving Grand Rapids, the surrounding communities and all of Itasca County.
Wendy Uzelac opened her RE/MAX Thousand Lakes office 16 years ago. She has spent more than 27 years as a real estate professional, keeping the needs of clients front and center.
Wendy's client-first approach includes taking the time to listen and fully understand client objectives, paying close attention to details, and demonstrating high ethical standards in every facet of the buying and selling process. For clients, this knowledge, professionalism and integrity result in smooth real estate transactions.
While Wendy maintains a strong referral network driven by positive client relationships and experiences, she continually works to expand her knowledge through continuing education. Her considerable professional achievements include the Council of Residential Specialist (CRS) real estate designation. Of more than 1 million REALTORS®, less than 3 percent are Certified Residential Specialists. To earn this designation, REALTORS® must demonstrate outstanding professional achievements (including high-volume sales) and pursue advanced training in areas such as finance, marketing and technology.
Just as Wendy continues to earn the trust of clients with her deep knowledge of the real estate market, property values and the area in which she lives and works, clients also appreciate her community involvement and willingness to volunteer. Wendy is immediate past president of the Itasca County Board of Realtors and has been part of many Grand Rapids area nonprofit boards and committees over the years. She is also the current Centennial Rotary Club president and belongs to the local chapter of Business Network International (BNI), where members work together to build their businesses through a professional, relationship-centered referral marketing program.
The real estate industry, too, has taken notice of Wendy's hard work – and great results. In fact, Wendy received the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award, honoring agents who have earned more than $1 million in commissions during their careers with the company.
On a personal level, Wendy and her family enjoy engaging in the amazing variety of activities available in the Itasca County area. She is just as likely to be spotted at a 4-H event as at a symphony concert in the local performing arts center. Wendy's knowledge of the many diverse offerings and things to do in this beautiful northern Minnesota area is an added benefit for her clients.
Together Wendy and her satisfied clients have helped make RE/MAX Thousand Lakes one of the top franchises in Itasca County.
