I began my real estate career in the Twin Cities back in 1988, and have since expanded my waterfront specialization to nearly all reaches of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. To offer the best possible guidance and results to lakeshore buyers and sellers, I've combined my 24 years in waterfront real estate with a team of lake experts across Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Consequently, we have a unique ability to give localized assistance to buyers and sellers throughout vast regions, and create a high percentage of successful transactions for our clients through top-notch niche marketing and our combined waterfront property knowledge.

From my early days in real estate, I recognized how difficult it was for buyers to sort through the various waterfront markets around the state, and then the hundreds of lakes and lake properties in each region. I realized that a true waterfront specialist -- someone who understood how to help these buyers best -- could be a huge benefit to them in saving both time and money, and I began to focus my efforts on becoming that expert. As more waterfront buyers began to contact me about helping them find just the right lake property, my wife, Sandy, decided to join me, and from there we grew our specialized business into Lakehomes.com Realty. And as the Internet expanded to become such an important factor in marketing properties, Lakehomes.com was perfectly positioned to provide the best possible exposure for waterfront sellers as well!

For more than two decades as a waterfront specialist, I've sold hundreds of lake homes, lots, resorts and cabins from the southern reaches of Minnesota to the Canadian Border...and into Wisconsin. Because of my many years of experience over such a large geographic area, I work hard to act as a true consultant to lakeshore buyers and sellers in nearly any waterfront market, and give as much direction as possible in each situation. This always seems to be a huge benefit to buyers who aren't quite sure where to find the right type of waterfront property to best fit their needs...and to sellers who are looking for suggestions on the most effective methods to get their lake properties sold.

As Lakehomes.com Realty continues to expand, I always try to instill in all of my agents the importance of integrity, professionalism, and a thorough knowledge of both waterfront and off-water properties in their respective markets. I enjoy seeing new agents - especially those with a passion for waterfront properties - become successful due to the differentiation and unique expertise Lakehomes.com Realty is able to offer buyers and sellers.

But even though Lakehomes.com Realty has grown from a mere concept many years ago, to its statewide presence today, I still take pride in my ability to personally help buyers find the perfect lake property and help sellers with individual marketing plans to fit their needs -- and I certainly don't leave all the glory up to my team. So if you are someone who appreciates the value of an expert in his field, give me a call. I will always let you know whether or not I'm the right person for the job!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Brainerd, MN.
      After seeing a cabin that we were interested in purchasing, we contacted Dan. He responded quickly and inquired what our preferences and needs for a lake home were. He was able to direct us to the homes that met our needs. He is very knowledgeable in lake quality and lake regulations. He tirelessly showed us many homes from morning to night, and a few snow storms! After finding the home that would be the perfect fit he continued to help us with the final details. We could not have gone thru this process as easily as we did without his assistance. His professional and personal assistance was unforgetable. I highly recommend anyone looking for a lakehome to contact him and let him do the work for you and sit back and see the results.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2013.
      We called Dan to help us find a cabin after finding his web site on the internet. He was extremely responsive and asked about our preferences and criteria for the lake home we were looking for. He provided us with plenty of information about the market and possible lake homes that would fit our criteria. After narrowing the list down he spent a full day, dawn to dusk, showing us our top ten sites. The following week we revisited our top two sites again with Dan in order to make our decision. Dan did a great job helping us with our decision, but in no way put any pressure on us. Dan helped us put together the offer and did a great job with the negotiations. It had been a long time since we had made a real estate purchase so Dan helped answer all our questions about the offer process and the paperwork involved in the completing the transaction. We would highly recommend Dan. He is a good guy and knows the lake home real estate market. We appreciate everything he did for us and we are very happy with our transaction.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Stillwater, MN.
      We were looking for a lake home in the twin cities area and found Dan Anderson to be a very friendly, kind, energetic, and professional realtor. His expertise with lakes was invaluable in our home search. We were surprised to find our dream home very quickly because Dan was quickly able to narrow down the search to what was most important to us. This was our first home purchase and he answered all of our questions, emails and phone calls promptly and helped us every step of the way. Can not say enough positive things about Dan and would highly recommend him to anyone I know!  MoreLess
