As the Broker at HWY 212 RE and a licensed real estate agent, I offer a concierge-level of service to buyers and sellers. I specialize in the southwest metro of Minneapolis and serve the entire west metro including the communities of SW Minneapolis/Lakes area, Carver County (Carver, Chanhassen, Victoria, Chaska, Waconia, etc.), Eden Prairie, Bloomington, Richfield, Edina, Maple Grove, Plymouth, Shakopee, Savage, Belle Plaine, Lakeville, Burnsville and the communities in the Lake Minnetonka area.

I serve home buyers and sellers who value their time and money and want an experienced professional who isn’t just another sales person, but is someone who truly strives to act in the best interest of the home buyer or home seller they are serving at all times.  Also, if you are a first-time homebuyer or a move-up homebuyer, I am very knowledgeable about down payment assistance programs.  Lack of a down-payment doesn't need to be a barrier to home ownership!  Please check out my webpage on HOMEBUYER assistance programs or click on the following icon to be taken to a down payment resource questionnaire .

I have been selling, buying, and leasing real estate for over 10 years through up and down markets and currently manage multiple single family rentals. I always consider the big picture with an analytical mind and look out for each client I serve as if they were family. I understand that buying or selling a home is a huge deal for most families with repercussions that affect every facet of their life. I take my job seriously, and do my best to make it a pleasurable experience for everyone involved.

You will find this site so easy to use for all your real estate needs, there will be no need to go any place else. Our site was designed with Buyers and Sellers in mind. See how easy it is to search for homes that are currently listed in the Twin Cities Area; or just sit back and allow us to do the work for you and watch how easy and quickly the information is sent to you!  Also, check out my HWY 212 RE Facebook page for great helpful hints on home buying and selling and for more info on the southwest metro area.


Our site offers many ways to find your dream home. Check out our Property Search option and select all the different areas that you may want to live in. Search by area, municipality, zip code, county, etc. It's that easy! I also have a bunch of links to pre-set searches for homes in the southwest metro, so you can get started searching right away. 

As an alternative, I have a FIND ME A HOME search page where you just tell me what you are looking for and I put together an automatic search for you that can be stopped at any time.  This is a great option for busy folks and you will get listings emailed to you the minute they come on the market!

Looking for a more hands-on option? With our HOME SEARCH TOOL, you create an account, then set up your search. Instant data from the Multiple Listing Service w/ all new listings is emailed directly to you. Once you have found a listing you love, save it for later review and discard listing you don't want. Here is a video that goes over the basics of using the HOME SEARCH TOOL Home Search Tutorial.  If you want to know why you should use a Buyer's Agent & how you can have a Buyer's Agent on your side at no cost to you, check out: Buyer's Agency Explained .
