"I moved to the area to attend high school at Pequot Lakes and grew up on Lower Whitefish in Pig Bay. I have a degree in Architectural & Landscape Design, but graduated from St. Cloud State University for Business Real Estate. My real education came from interning with Bruce and Rob during the summers."

"In my first two years of real estate, I have sold just under 10 million in sales. If I'm not selling real estate or assisting clients, you can easily find me out on the lake with family, friends, or past clients!"

"I've been in the service business all my life and there's one thing that never gets old and that's making people feel comfortable with you by giving them more than they expect. It's just that simple."

"I think you should spend as much time with your grandparents as humanly possible. Every year growing up, I'd spend the summer with my grandparents at their cabin on Pelican Lake and I learned a lot—but mostly I learned respect: Respect for people and for life."

"For a lot of my clients I found I can add the most value by being a problem solver. I can be objective and help them prioritize what they want versus what they need. It's a great way to simplify things and make better decisions."

"Success is all about putting myself in your shoes and making sure you'll never have any regrets. Period."
