Your home is the center of your universe. It’s where you can truly just be you. It’s the space where you can perfect the art of living your life.

Here’s why I understand the importance of a good home decision.

My parents built, and we lived in, 14 homes in their lifetime, acting as the General Contractor for most of them. My father was a turn-around executive, and we moved. A lot. As a kid, I went with my folks when they were looking for lots, meeting with architects, builders, plumbers, electricians and real estate agents. When we moved into a new place, in a new city, we were taught how to make each move like a new adventure. My brothers and I learned about sweat equity because we were the family work crew. I could swing a hammer and shovel before I learned how to swing a bat.

So, it was logical that I would buy my first house when I was 20. By then, I knew enough to act as my own house inspector, negotiate the contract and confidently become a new member of the community.

Shortly after graduating from university, I joined the Marine Corps. As a Combat Infantry Officer, I spent the next decade evenly split by either sleeping under the stars or in a house where I rarely unpacked my moving boxes. Moving into new houses didn’t stop with my career in sales; between promotions, transfers and new jobs, we bought a half dozen homes in a dozen years. Then we landed in Woodbury, Minnesota, where we have lived in the same house for the past 20+ years. It’s where my wife and I raised our two daughters. A home that we transformed into the cornerstone of our family’s lives.

For fun year-'round, I am a woodworker and create custom pieces to sell on my Etsy store; Dragon Coolers. I have also been a professional Alpine Ski Instructor for 21 years, skiing almost every weekend, every winter.

Your needs are front and center to our relationship and I look forward to matching what you want and need with your next dream home. It's out there, let's go find it!

Reviews for Kris Lindahl Real Estate

I highly recommend the Kris Lindahl team. I liked that Kirsten Dillon had almost 24/7 availability, her targeted search criteria, her intimate knowledge of the market I was looking to buy into, her spot-on assessments of the relative value of houses, and her willingness to visit houses even when I was looking only for comparison purposes. She helped me arrange financing. She also assisted me in finding competent, reliable, and reasonably priced contractors for both immediate and longer-term work after the sale. She knows her market. She's a hands-on, active agent who produced fast results. I would work with her again without hesitation.

Julie Dial from Kris Lindahl Real Estate is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. From our initial consultation, she was very knowledgeable, direct, and clearly understood our preferences. She worked diligently and efficiently to show us high quality properties in a timely fashion (which is very important in today’s market). She was incredibly accessible and responsive throughout the buying process and put us in the best position possible to buy our dream home. We appreciated her extensive knowledge of the market and she was just an all-around great person to work with. I recommend her highly to my friends and colleagues and very much look forward to working with her in the future.

From the moment Karen Busch walked into my home, I knew I was in good hands. She immediately had several great suggestions and helped us find the perfect way to present the property to sell. It was truthfully a stress-free process from beginning to end because of how transparent and responsive Karen was throughout. With my new home purchase, the service was equally stellar. We probably privately toured well over a dozen properties. Her advice was invaluable, eventually leading to us selecting the perfect property for our family. If you are looking for a true partner in your sale or home purchase, I highly recommend giving Karen Busch a call.
