A home is a refuge; a place for family, friends, community, and everything that you hold dearest.

I am committed to making your experience with Lakes Area Realty exceptional. My clients often describe me as a genuine people person who exceeds expectations by providing a unique perspective, creative and analytical thinking, and problem-solving skills to each situation. I bring dedication, integrity, and years of contract negotiation skills to the table every time, and I get results.Your needs and priorities are my #1 focus. As my own family has moved all over the country, we know that having a skilled and dedicated agent is the key to getting the best terms and price as well as ensuring a smooth transaction.

I first moved to Minnesota to attend Hamline University in 1994, earning degrees in English and Religion, as well as a minor in philosophy. I then graduated top of my class from the Carlson School of Management with a master’s degree in Human Resources, which lead to a successful career in Compensation and HR consulting. It was in that position where I honed the crucial skills of negotiating contracts, winning clients, and managing and executing large projects. When I was ready for a change, I made the decision to join my mother and aunt in a family real estate business in Washington, D.C-- I was lucky to learn the ropes from the best. While I was there, the team maintained a nationally ranked top 1% sales spot.

Home has been many places for me, but no place has been home longer than the Twin Cities. After 15 years in Minnesota, my wife calls me an honorary Minnesotan, and I humbly accept that title. The Twin Cities metro is one of the best places to live in the nation, and for good reason. Whatever you love to do, you can find it here. Abundant greenspace and parks, vibrant neighborhoods, bustling urban hubs, incredible food, music, theater, unique winter activities, and quiet backyard scenes are all apart of the fabric of the Metro Area. As a music lover of many genres, I enjoy the lively and varied local and national music scene.

I am thrilled to be back in the Twin Cities working with the spectacular team of dedicated and talented agents of the Chris Dennis Group of Lakes Area Realty. Let’s work together!
