A bit about me

We all have so many aspects of ourselves spread across a wide array of passions and interests. Real estate surprises me every day with how much of myself I get to pour into it. On any given day I get to be an advisor, an ear to listen, a data analyst, a marketer, a negotiator, and a friend.

I’m fortunate to be able to draw from a diverse background of experiences to serve my clients. It would be a privilege to walk this journey with you!

Here before, here after. Caretakers for a time.

We’re usually not the first owners of our homes. Often these houses of ours are fifty, seventy, or even a hundred years old. I sometimes get a shiver thinking of all the lives lived in these places. Whether you’re the second or the seventh owner, you pick up the mantle where the last person left off. Fill the rooms with your memories and joy, and when it’s time, pass it on to the next steward.

I feel so grateful to be able to walk through these special transitions with my clients.

What my clients say

Manuela & Ben

We are very very grateful and happy we found Cole to guide us and help us through the process of buying a house. We owned a condo, so we did not consider ourselves “first time buyers” but we were very surprised by how different everything was. There’s so many things, details, steps you need to observe and consider, and we would have been very lost without Cole. We loved how much he cared and the human connection we were able to create with him. Cole was patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and overall, the best realtor-partner you can ask for when going into this process. We know we won’t be looking for anybody else if we ever decide on selling-buying a house again and we recommend reaching out to him to anybody who is looking to go into this house market. Thanks Cole!!

Cole took the daunting process of home-buying and made it so approachable and easy to understand. He did a great job of showing me a range of options on day one so that I was able to get a feel for what was out there and create my list of wants and needs in a home. When it was time to start making offers, he did research with each attempt and was able to help me decide how competitive I needed to be. He's a pro! He knew what he was doing and I trusted his guidance. And now I have the most charming little home!


I would recommend Cole over and over. We had both purchased properties several times in the last 12 years, but home-buying had changed so drastically since COVID that we felt out of our element. Cole delivered on some tough asks related to a sale during a divorce, a purchase with a lower budget, and a very competitive home-buying market. But I couldn’t have asked for a more balanced, thorough, and confident realtor to help us transition from our old to our new home. He understood it all, somehow explained it to us where it made perfect sense, worked very hard for our needs, and came through with a team of such excellent lenders, brokers, and inspectors. And it was like working with a friend. This was the easiest home-buying experience I could imagine, and it was the toughest on “paper” . Cole slays.

Max & Ben

Working with Cole felt like working with a friend. We were first-time home buyers who didn’t really know what we were doing, but Cole answered all of our questions and made us feel confident in a difficult market.

He made a point to really get to know us and understand our needs and preferences, and kept it all in mind as we toured each house. From our first conversation all the way through closing day, we felt like Cole had our best interests at heart.

On top of it all, his love for the Twin Cities area is obvious right away. He cares so much about this place and the people who live here!
