I’ve been selling houses since 1988.  Yes, I started when I was 21, a college student at the University of Minnesota.  Now you know how old I am.

I’m never too busy for you or your referrals.  I want to help you and your parents and your kids and your friends and your co-workers.  I sell about 50 houses a year. Usually about half are buyers buying and half are sellers selling.  I love what I do, and I work all over the Twin Cities and pretty much in all price ranges, too.  From $250,000 to over $4,000,000.  My back yard is Edina where I office and live, but I’ll work where you need me.  And if I’m not your guy, like if you want to buy land on the Gunflint, then I know someone who can help you.

I’m consistently in the Coldwell Banker Realty Presidents Club (the top 50 agents in the Twin Cities) and I’m usually the number one producing individual agent in my office.  I’m not fixed on being number one. I’m fixed on taking great care of my buyers and sellers.  With a 30+ year track record of happy clients I get a lot of referrals and that keeps me busy year after year. Thanks to you!

There’s a good chance I might love your dog as much as you do and you might see me most mornings running around Lake Harriet or out to eat in the evenings. I’m always up for swapping fishing stories or talking pretty much anything boat or lake related. But I’m really best at getting your home sold or finding you the right one when you’re ready.

My wife Sally makes my life better.  And she’ll make your transaction better, too!  She’s all things administration in the SellsHouses.com world.  She’s ultra organized. She’s a gifted planner and thinker-a-header.  She knows the in and outs of the business and the contracts and the nuances of each and every transaction and wants to make your move smooth.

"Steve is everything a buyer or seller could want in an agent. We purchased our first home, sold our first home, and then bought our second home all with Steve by our side and on our side. He knows his stuff, isn't afraid to speak up and be a voice..."
