Hello! I am the founder and team leader of the Imperial Home Team and the Real Estate Agent Help Desk. I also run the Dark Side Tribe with eXp. I am a published author, Star Wars fan (or nerd..whatever), podcaster, and a technology guru. I love using a variety of media for our team including webinars, seminars, books, automated follow up, social media, sales funnels, and pretty much everything else.
I've also been a trusted real estate professional on Fox 9, KARE 11, Zillow.com, Realtor.com and many other media outlets. My past honors include being awarded the Twin Cities Real Estate Agent of the Month, Twin Cities Super Agent multiple ongoing years, RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and the 2016 Outstanding Professional of the Year for the entire RE/MAX Advantage Plus brokerage. I also mentor agents on our team and in our eXp Realty group as well as put on educational workshops to fellow agents. Teaching and mentoring are in my blood! I have written numerous books for both sellers/buyers as well as for helping real estate agents.
I am happily married to Nicole (Wittrig) and we have two wonderful rescue dogs named Karen (yes, Karen) and Tammy. We live in Bloomington which we absolutely love! If it was up to Nicole, we would be fostering every animal on the face of the Earth and turning our backyard into some sort of zoo. Both Nicole and I enjoy traveling, testing out local restaurants and breweries, taking in Minnesota sports (even through the rough years) including bags/curling, and we really enjoy what the Twin Cities has to offer! I was an occupational therapist that specialized in strokes/traumatic brain injury treatments prior to getting into real estate and I can tell you more about that if you like!
