The Local Expert

Living Northeast since 1958; Sheridan neighborhood from 0-28, Holland and 1st. home purchase from 28-42, back to Sheridan and 2nd home purchase from 42-to now and all K-12 NE schools.

I’ve been in the customer service industry since I was 16 working at a small engine parts distributor and repairing lawnmowers for the local hardware store located on 13th. Ave. NE.

Our family home was on 6th St. near Broadway and my father was a very handy man who also owned a 4-plex on Madison St.; and with all the repairing and upkeep on the 2, I learned a whole lot about home maintenance and repairs.

On July 19, 1985, at the age of 27, I became a realtor and joined Thorpe Bros. Real Estate, the Columbia Heights office. And on January 15, 1988, I became a Graduate, Realtors® Institute of Minnesota In 1990, Edina Realty bought Thorpe Bros. And I am the longest licensed realtor living in Northeast.

I’ve owned 4 homes, 3 in Northeast and 1 in Columbia Heights.

I am very house smart, I know houses; I’ve done all sorts of repairs and remodels including building additions and garages and I know good homes from not so good homes.

I currently own and live in a duplex (upper unit rented) with an attached home office located at 15th. & University Ave. NE.

My vehicle license plate is ILOVENE and most of my online pages are under “NEmplshomes”.

I have been in thousands of homes, and I’ve sold/closed 987 properties to date, from Medina to East St. Paul and Elk River to Owatonna with 80% of my business in Northeast including many in Columbia Heights and some in St. Anthony. 

I have sold single family, multi-Family, apartment buildings, condos, and light commercial and I have done many estates and divorce type of sales and I know all about all the financing choices, FHA, VA, Conventional, Non-conventional, Adjustable rate, Assumption and Contract for Deed. I also know how to spot red flags.

I know our neighborhoods and property values down to the city blocks; I study the local statistics weekly.

I am honest and ethical, and I have over 120 reviews going back to 1988 on my blog @  

My goal is to always provide home buyers and home sellers with professional, responsive, attentive, and fun real estate services. If you want to work with a knowledgeable professional focused on customer service, I would love to talk with you.
