I have over 40+ years of experience selling residential, commercial, industrial and raw land. I am a past president of the Minnesota and southern twin cities associations of realtors, as well as a member of the national association board of directors. I will serve our clients with the professionalism they have come to expect from Team Emond.
Having grown up in a real estate family, I joined my father in the business in 1986. I am a multi million dollar sales leader and have consistently ranked among the top 1% of realtors in the nation. I was recently honored with the Top Agent award in 2017. Whether you are buying or selling, I can be trusted to do the best to make your transaction an agreeable experience. I have the resources and knowledge to coordinate the complex details of each transaction until a successful conclusion is reached.
I am a 2012 graduate of Lakeville South High School. I graduated from Concordia University with a degree in sales and finance. I had my first home sale in 2015 and have been off and running since then. I am currently working in sales for First American Title Company and am a part time buyers rep for Team Emond. I have lived in Saint Paul for the past 6 years and specialize in the metro and north metro markets. I enjoy working with first time home buyers and with our Team’s backing, have been very successful in this highly competitive market. From home showings to closings, I know how to make your experience a positive one.
I have been a long time resident of Elko New Market and a respected business owner in this community for over 20 years. I believe the customers needs are always the number one priority. My goal is and has always been, to be available to my customers at all times. I work with my customers best interests in mind and use my listening skills, honesty and professionalism to create a positive experience for them. I have earned respect in my community as a long time leader through activities including my 10+ years as trail captain of the Lakeville Snowtrackers snowmobile club. My business experience helps me to better understand the importance of excellent customer service. I am always willing and able to help anyone with the home ownership experience.
I have been a Lakeville resident for over 25 years. My father was part of the 3rd graduating class from the original Lakeville HS when it was the McGuire building. This is my home, where my 3 children grew up playing soccer and where I have planted my roots. My son just purchased his first home through Team Emond in Lakeville this year. I have had 5 homes in Lakeville, building 3 and buying 2 existing properties. I am no stranger to the building process, emotions and all and I love every minute of it. I am an avid runner. You will often see me running anywhere in Lakeville. I like to change the scenery often. I have completed 4 marathons and am pretty sure there is a 5th in the future somewhere waiting to be completed. I believe you finish what you start and you work hard in everything you do whether it be running a race or raising children or helping a client with one of the biggest purchases they will ever make, and always do it with a smile.
I have lived in Lakeville my whole life. Jim and I have been married for 30 years and have 2 wonderful boys. After working in retail for many years, I decided to use my design degree to start my own business. I have owned and operated my own design and painting company in the south suburbs for over 10 years. I work with clients in new construction and remodeling, helping them with design, layout, material and furniture selections. I also enjoy staging and accessory shopping and placement. You can also find me on job sites doing custom plastering and painting for clients. I now work closely with our Team members using my design skills to help get properties ready for listing and am the marketing and admin support behind the scenes.
