Second-time buyers prefer Exclusive Buyer Agents. They've learned it's a smarter way to buy homes.
Some time ago, when I was studying at the University of Minnesota, a friend and I decided to begin investing in real estate.
The first property we were sold was a disaster.
The furnace needed replacing; the radiators were cracked; we’d paid, it turned out later, more than 25% over the home’s market value; and on top of that, we were lumped with an outstanding water bill of $3,000.
We took the experience as an education. From then on, we made sure to uncover every stone necessary to never be caught out like that again.
Soon after, it occurred to me that there were scores of buyers out there who might be led astray as easily as we had been. I believed, just as I do today, that every buyer deserved to feel confident in the investment they were making as they searched for a new home. So, I became an Exclusive Buyers Agent, and haven’t looked back since.
With more than 30 years of real estate experience, I’ve represented buyers—and only buyers—through all manner of market conditions. Contact us today and I’d be happy to talk through what we can do for you and how to get the most from your home buying experience.
I’ve always had a knack for numbers.
It’s something that took me away from Minnesota for a few years over the late 80s when I served in the finance division of the U.S. Army in Germany.
But I returned to the Twin Cities area in 1990 and, after a brief spell working at a Minnesota law firm, continued my military career as an accounting consultant in the Minnesota National Guard.
It was there that I met Tim Walters, who at the time was working to open The Home Buyers.
Tim’s dedication to the financial and legal responsibilities associated with properly serving home buyers has always spoken to me. It was a natural fit, and after several years learning the ins and outs of the real estate industry, I began working as a full time Exclusive Buyers Agent.
Twenty-five years later, I'm a joint parter in the company and I still love what we do.
Any home purchase demands time and money on the part of the buyer. As a matter of principle, I make sure all the buyers I represent understand what makes their purchase a reliable investment in terms of both numbers and integrity.
Please reach out to our team and find a home you can truly enjoy buying.
There are many reasons to be buying real estate, whether it’s a rental opportunity, a flip, or a forever home. But any investment deserves to be well thought through, and every buyer deserves sincere representation.
I bought my first house at age 23 and I’m still there today, so I know how the right purchase can change your life. I’ve also seen how easy it is for buyers to be blindsided or overwhelmed by the process of buying a home.
At The Home Buyers, we guide you through every step of the journey and ensure that you get the most from your real estate purchase. Sincere representation is guaranteed—it's what we pride ourselves on.

As a Certified Public Accountant and former auditor, I come from an environment with strict rules around independence and conflicts of interest. Unfortunately, in the Twin Cities real estate market, it became quickly apparent to me that important safeguards were missing to protect buyer’s interests in what is often the most important purchase of their life.
The Home Buyers is committed to its role as a fiduciary, and our model allows us to provide buyers an unmatched level of service and expertise. Our clients enjoy peace of mind knowing we represent their interests exclusively.
Please reach out to learn more about how I might be able to help you in the purchase of your home.
