Hello and thank you for visiting The Paul Ekstrom Realty Team, It is my goal as your full service real estate company to provide with you and your family with the highest level of service possible and to offer the lastest in Real Estate technology available today. I specialize in the Andover, Coon Rapids, Blaine, Ramsey, and Ham Lake areas, yet my market area includes Big Lake to C... hisago City and Cambridge to Fridley. If I can be of any service outside of these areas, please let me know. I was born and raised in Chetek, Wisconsin. I grew up on a farm until I was in 3rd grade when my family moved to a lakehome. At this time, I realized that I was born to be on the water. My greatest memories growing up were countless hours of waterskiing on the Chetek Chain of Lakes. After graduating from high school I attended the University of Wisconsin- Stout. I moved to the Twin Cities in 1983. I have spent most of my career in the automotive industry as a sales manager. I first got my Real Estate Salesperson's license almost 20 years ago and jumped in full time in 2005. I have always had an interest in real estate and I finally reached a point in my life where I could follow my dream and become my own boss. I have been married for almost 22 years to me beautiful wife, Janelle. We have 2 daughters. Amy Jo (18) is a student at St Kates in St Paul and Jodi (14) is a competitive dancer and a freshman at Andover High School. Most of my time away from Real Estate is sitting in gymnasiums across the Twin Cities with other dance dads and moms watching dance competitions. Away from work, my main interests are spending time with my family and volunteering at my church, Our Saviours Lutheran in East Bethel. In my limited freetime, I enjoy golf, working out and anything to do with boating. I enjoy watching and cheering on the Twins and the Vikings, even during the trying past couple of years of our beloved sports teams! As your Realtor, you will find me patient, understanding, fun and educational. I am a teacher at heart so I love to educate my buyers and sellers. I strive to show my clients all the options available, consult them on the positives and negatives of these options, then allow my clients to make their own educated decisions. I do not believe in pressuring somebody into making a hasty, uninformed decision. Once my clients have made a decision, then it is time for me to do my job. My team and I look forward to assisting you and your family on the most important decision you make in a lifetime.
