I spent the first 30 years of my working life in the hospitality industry with the last 10 of those years as Director of U. S Operations for the Elephant & Castle Group. My interests in Real Estate started with the purchase of an investment property in 2004 and another in 2005. Prior to purchasing those homes, my wife and I took Real Estate investment classes at a local Real Estate school. In 2006 I made a career change and became a Realtor. I have been a full time Realtor since then, and never looked back. I have lived in the twin cities since 1963 and have resided in Minnetonka, St. Paul and Roseville. I currently live in a town home and have served on our association board of directors for over 20 years. I have been a "jogger" most of my life and started running more in 2007. I ran my first Twin Cities Marathon in 2008. I continue to run 5K's, 10K's, Half Marathon's and Marathons. The Half Marathon is my favorite. My wife and I enjoy traveling, scuba diving and dancing. I also enjoy camping with our kid's and grand kids. (Yes, I still sleep in a tent on the ground - ok with an air mattress or roll out.)
Ok, enough about my personal life. I really enjoy getting to know people and helping them transition from one home to another. I take the time to listen and understand what your needs and goals are. Whether you are purchasing your first home or moving from the lifelong family home, I am there to help.
I have a number of team members ready to help you. Home Financing - Nick Fairbanks with Guaranteed Rate Affinity Mortgage (short term bridge loans or long term financing), Beth Schuette with Burnet Title, local and out of state moving companies. If you need staging, flooring, painters, plumbers, electricians small and large contractors - I have the resources.
The last 2 years have been challenging for home buyers. With higher interest rates some buyer’s have left the market leaving buyer’s and seller’s on a more even footing. I am finding ways for both sides to accomplish their real estate related goals. I am here to help, even if you are not ready to make a move yet and just have questions. I would love to hear from you.
