More About Me

Business Philosophy

My goal is to deliver a positive experience to every client by listening to their needs and working to fulfill them. Respect and professionalism are keys to successful real estate transactions for all parties involved. This is accomplished through the collaborative efforts of our Coldwell Banker team members, who are dedicated to the success of your housing transaction.

For over 40 years, Coldwell Banker Burnet has been getting high marks from our home buying and selling customers in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. I started Real Estate in 2015 and have found it fascinating, fun, and satisfying to help my clients with buying homes and/or selling real property.
