Sarah grew up in Goodland enjoying what the local lakes had to offer. She now shares this with her husband of 8 years, her two sons (7 & 6), and daughter (4) - along with their new arrival on the way this spring! Whether it is swimming, fishing or a variety of other activities, the entire family knows the value of spending time on the lake both in summer and winter.


Having experienced many great times in the woods with her dad during her younger days, Sarah appreciates that her kids are also fortunate to live in the country and enjoy many types of local outdoor recreation, just as she did. Being able to raise their family on 20 acres very near to where she grew up, she can easily spend time gardening with her mom just down the road. And family activities like walks in the woods, swimming, fishing and large gatherings with friends are commonplace.


Understanding the special makeup and unique recreational attributes of Itasca County and Western St. Louis County gives Sarah a strong basis to help new buyers planning to move here. And because she personally lives the outdoor life around the area lakes and woods, she is great at marketing those types of unique listings.


As a young and motivated agent, Sarah is extremely personable with strong people skills and years of experience in sales. Her busy schedule keeps her stay organized and has never held her back in anything she has done. In fact she thrives on a busy lifestyle, and it makes her do an even better job for her clients.


Having personally seen the ups and downs of real estate, she knows how important of a life decision it is for each buyer and seller. So she is ready to help guide you through those decisions, whether you looking to buy or sell.

About Grand Rapids / Itasca County Area

Lake-Filled Region of North Central Minnesota


Minnesota’s Itasca County features over 450 lakes, some being known as the clearest in the state. In addition to the lakes, it is surrounded by multiple state forests.

Grand Rapids, the county’s largest city, is becoming the hub of North Central Minnesota. The town offers shopping, dining, and lodging establishments along with the Itasca County Airport and Grand Itasca Hospital.

A 3-hour drive will bring you to Minneapolis or an hour will get you to Duluth or Bemidji.


Clear Waters and Picturesque Shores


Pokegama Lake is a recreational sensation located just outside the city of Grand Rapids. Summers at Pokegama are spent beaching, boating, water skiing, and fishing.

Sugar Lake, also known as Siseebakwet Lake, is one of the most beautiful lakes in the state. Its aqua blue waters and sandy shores mimic scenery you would see in the Mediterrean. Surprisingly, much of the lakeshore is left undeveloped and it is never overcrowded.

Deer Lake is another turquoise body of water, home to some of the region’s most sought-after lake property.

The Grand Rapids Area houses some of the state’s most desired rental and residential property due to these stunning lakes and hundreds more.


Year-Round Destination


Itasca County is more than a summer retreat; when snow falls people flock to this region for endless winter activities.

Home to so many great fishing lakes, it is called an “Ice Fisherman’s Paradise”. Some use snowmobiles to travel the frozen lakes while others explore the county’s web of forested trails.

Fat-tire biking is a great way to explore Minnesota’s winter landscape. Over 100 miles of biking trails are located in the area but the Tioga Recreation Area, Chippewa National Forest Trails, or the Legion Trail are best for winter biking.

Go to Mount Itasca for downhill skiing, snowmobiling, snow tubing, and more.


A Cultural Scene


Judy Garland from Wizard of Oz was born in Grand Rapids, where her childhood home still stands today. It is also a museum, containing the largest amount of collectibles from the movie.

Other great stops are the Children’s Discovery Museum, Macrostie Art Center, or Historic Century School. For even more outdoor enjoyment, visit Scenic State Park or take the Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway.


Desirable Lake Property


Grand Rapids is arguably the best destination in Minnesota, featuring breathtaking landscapes, year-round recreation, and a beautiful downtown.
