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

Grand Rapids, Minnesota real estate is still some of the most affordable in Northern Minnesota -- and you will find lake homes, cabins and waterfront properties of all types throughout 1,000 pristine lakes of the Itasca County MN Area.

Just three hours north of Minneapolis & St. Paul - and an hour from either Bemidji or Duluth - Grand Rapids is becoming the hub of North Central Minnesota. Surrounded by several state forests and the Chippewa National Forest, it is a multi-use recreational paradise unlike any other in the state. And with lakefront real estate prices still relatively low - combined with some of the clearest lakes in Minnesota - the Grand Rapids Area is quickly becoming an attractive vacation home destination for many.

There is a wide variety of lakefront and riverfront property throughout the region, along with plenty of heavily wooded acreage. All types of waterfront real estate can be found, from primitive lake cabins with sugar sand beach, to massive lake homes on the shores of Lake Pokegama. And three of the four 18 hole golf courses in the area sit on the shores of these fine lakes.

Hunting, hiking, fishing and snowmobiling are ways of life here, and with nearly limitless public lands it is kind of like having your own private recreational preserve. Good schools, high quality sporting facilities, and a busy tourist economy have created a well rounded community, bringing a steady growth of new businesses like Home Depot, Target and Applebees to a relatively small town. Other communities in the county like Marcell, Deer River and Bigfork serve as regional shopping centers for seasonal residents and vacationers, and Coleraine is seeing a resurgence with a brand new indoor water park being added to the golf course.

Many people have done well investing in waterfront real estate and acreage properties in Itasca County. But in relation to prices in other recreational areas around the state, there is still a long ways to grow. And most only look at potential appreciation as a secondary benefit; it seems to be the clean lakes and the beauty of the area that draws people in.
