Why Do I Help Landlords Find Renters?

To me it is very rewarding to coach people on how to be a good landlord. When you are a good landlord you have good tenants. When your tenants are happy - you the landlord is happy. 

I took my career to the next level and moved to the Twin Cities, where I worked for several different Property Management companies – MRG (no longer around – which was a partner of DRG – Downtown Resource Group), Twin Cities Home Rentals, TRI Home Rental (no longer around) Renters Warehouse & Twin Cities Leasing. 

I am more than happy to say I landed a role and UpDown PM and I love. I am able to educate and assist landlords the way I want to with Passion and always putting their interest first and love the support I get by being a part of this team!

I have been a licensed Realtor for over 10 years

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Making Memories with my family, Coaching Ice Hockey, Snowboarding, Tubing behind a boat, 4-wheeling and Camping.

Tell me about your experience in Real Estate Rentals?

I honestly fell in to Property Management! After college I went to look at a property to rent where the owner showed me the home. He called me a few days later and asked if I was looking for a job. I asked him - what kind of job? He said being a property manager for college houses. I took the role knowing nothing about renting/leasing/managing homes, but took on the challenge and was a property manager in St. Cloud, MN for 4 years. Where I was responsible for 253 college bedrooms.
