As a lifelong resident of Minnesota real estate in South Minneapolis' Lake of the Isles, Edina, Minnetonka and Plymouth area, I have learned a few things. Minnesota is more than an address; it is a culture that has very specific rules and preferred etiquette when it comes to the buying or selling process. The best description I ever heard to describe us was “Minnesotan's don’t car pool”. Minnesotan's are fiercely independent, make well-educated decisions, very innovative, community oriented and take an interest in local politics. The buying and selling process in real estate MN includes independent fact gathering of information as well as searching for competent and trust worthy representation is just as important as the actual MN home for sale. In keeping with that philosophy, I have done my best to provide as many MN real estate searches, real estate news feeds, latest real estate market updates, accurate real estate MN statistics and an easy home search to provide as much information as possible in one location. Thank you for visiting and please do not hesitate to contact me for any of your Minnesota real estate questions.BACKGROUND Born and raised in south Minneapolis, Lake of the Isles and Edina. When we were getting married, my husband was living north and I was living south so we made our first compromise and moved to the western suburbs and have been there ever since. PHILOSOPHY There are many opportunities in today's real estate market, they're just not the same as they were yesterday. As a Broker In a somewhat complex and changing market, I have learned to keep things simple by asking two questions, What is in the best interest of the Client? And What is the highest and best use of my time, based on the best interest of the Client? The answers to these two questions solve 99% of any dilemma that may arise. The one size fits all solution, appears to be "old news" and understand that Clients are looking for a number of creative, yet practical options to leverage the current real estate climate.
