Excelsior, MN 55331
My wife Jessi and I were born in Minnesota and we have been life long residents. We love the people and the values that they hold as well as all the opportunities our great state provides. We grew up in a small town in South Central Minnesota but currently live in Shakopee. We are proud parents of three children Tate, Avery and Beckett.
Jessi and I love to take advantage of all Minnesota has to offer. Some of our hobbies include water skiing, golfing, playing basketball, fishing, hunting with our yellow lab Wrigley, and watching all of our Minnesota sports teams! Along with all the outdoor activities we take part in, Jessi also loves to decorate our home and she often helps me with suggestions and ideas for preparing my clients homes for sale.
One of my favorite pastimes is following all of our local sports teams. Jessi and I make sure we take in a few Vikings, Twins, and Gopher games each year with family and friends.
Our true love and biggest passion is spending as much quality time as possible with our growing family especially at the lake!
My business career started in Marshall, MN where I attended Southwest State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration along with a Minor in Marketing. Before entering the real estate business, I previously worked as a personal banker for several years. I have a very strong knowledge base of the borrowing process and financial side of a real estate transaction. This experience allows me to easily guide my clients through the complicated process of finding the best possible financing options. I have also previously worked as a web production specialist which has given me the ability to use the internet and my website to best serve my clients.
I am a licensed broker in the state of Minnesota and have overseen thousands of transactions. While I primarily work in the Twin Cities metro area, I have recenvtly sold homes west/south central Minnesota. My expertise includes all forms of residential real estate including single family homes, townhomes, condos, and lake homes.
I have a strong background in technology which has allowed me to embrace internet marketing and effectively use my website NewmansNeighborhood.com to actively promote my listings and provide resources to my buyers and sellers.
