Eric's Personal Background
My wife Jess and I were born in Minnesota and we have been lifelong 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 the small town of Hector, lived in Shakopee for 19 years, and we moved to our lake home in the New London-Spicer lakes area in 2020. We are proud parents of three children Tate, Avery, and Beckett.
Jess and I love to take advantage of all Minnesota has to offer. Some of our hobbies include water skiing, boating, golfing, playing basketball, fishing, and hunting with our yellow lab Liberty. Along with all the outdoor activities we take part in, Jess 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 our local sports teams. Our family makes sure we take in a few Vikings, Twins, and Gopher volleyball games each year with family and friends.
Eric's Agent Profile
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 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 social media to best serve my clients by actively promoting my listings and providing resources to my buyers and sellers.
I am a licensed broker in the state of Minnesota and have overseen thousands of transactions since 2001 in both a broker and sales agent capacity. My primary service areas include the Willmar/New London-Spicer lakes area, the Twin Cities metro area, Hutchinson, Buffalo Lake-Hector, and the Alexandria lakes area. My expertise includes all forms of residential real estate including lake homes, single family homes, townhomes, condos, and land.

Roger's Agent Profile
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a Minor in Accounting from Southwest State University. I spent 43 years in the banking field all of which were spent at the same bank in Hector, MN. I worked at various levels of lending throughout the years with the last 11 years as Bank President.
After my retirement from banking, I became a licensed real estate professional in the state of Minnesota. My banking background helps to assist buyers and sellers throughout the entire transaction. I have a strong working knowledge of several loan programs including rural housing initiatives. Banking has also given me a strong foundation in regard to values of homes and Ag land/property in rural Minnesota.
