I was first introduced to the Iron Range in 1997 by my wife Leigh. Leigh had been coming to the area since her childhood as her mother grew up in Soudan. Being an avid outdoorsman, I am drawn to the Canadian shield-like lake settings and the untouched wilderness lands and forests. So when the opportunity presented itself to relocate here with Leigh’s work, the decision was an easy one for us. We sold our home in Golden Valley, Minnesota, sold our island property on the east end of Lake Vermilion, and spent the next 10 months searching for a home where we could create our nest. It was during this search that I realized my next career move was to sell Real Estate.
I grew up in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, the oldest of four kids. I spent my youth exploring the lakes and woods of Ottertail County in between playing any organized sport that would have me. Hockey, baseball and an opportunity for a good education led me to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. While at UND I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and a Master’s Degree of Business Administration. I spent 24 years in sales and management for a Fortune 100 food wholesaler in St Paul/Minneapolis. Starting at the ground floor as a sales rookie and moving up the ranks into management, I am a believer in the importance of building client relationships with complete and accurate information, timeliness, follow through, and honesty.
I have acquired a hearty appreciation for good food and good company. I enjoy gathering with friends and family every fall at our hunting cabin south of Hoyt Lakes. I love dogs, fishing, hunting, hiking, snowshoeing, woodworking, spending quality time with our two grown children, our family and my wife, Leigh. I am a full-time realtor, I love the business and feel well-equipped to help you buy or sell that special property: Your Home, Your Cabin, Your Wildernest.™
