It's great to hear your clients and collegues call you an expert. I know a lot about real estate and enjoy helping others understand the process. I know you will benefit from my many years of experience and knowledge. But most importantly, you can trust me to help you with one of the biggest financial decisions you make in your life.
I wear many hats these days and am uniquely qualified to help you in several ways:
APPRAISER - I am the owner of ZCL Appraisals. As a certified residential appraiser I do appraisals of homes for purchase and refinance loans for banks and mortgage companies. My appraisals are also used by lawyers to appraise a home's value in a divorce, famly members settling an estate for a homeowner who has passed away, and investors/flippers looking for the future value of a home after the remodeling is done.

MEASURING HOMES FOR REALTORS - Another service my appraisal company offers is home measuring for busy real estate agents. I provide the time-saving service of accurately measuring thier listings for them and providing a layout of the home for them to accurately enter into MLS. Who better to measure a home than a pro with a tape measure who measures homes every day and teaches classes on how to measure a home.
REALTOR - I am a Realtor for Bjorklund Realty in Edina, a small broker that gives me the flexibility and support I need. I can help you with leasing, buying or selling a home anywhere in the Twin Cities and surrounding counties. As an Appraiser/Realtor I see more homes in a week then most Realtors see in a month and I don't specialize in just one neighborhood. I work all around the Twin Cities and am happy to give you the benefit of my expertise.

I teach at the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors (MAAR) in Edina and at real estate offices and Associations throughout the state of MN. I also offer one-on-one private classes to agents in their home or office and do speaking engagements at real estate office meetings and other related topics.
BOARD MEMBER - I am a board member of the board of directors for the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors and member of the Northstar MLS Agent Advisory Committee and MAAR Appraisers Support Group.
PROPERTY INVESTMENT & MANAGEMENT - I am a partner with Shawn Strathe (also a Realtor at Bjorklund) and we own SZL Ventures, LLC . We rehab residential properties and sell or rent them. We are always on the look-out for new properties to invest in and investors to partner with.
So, if you are looking to learn about real estate, have your home appraised or buy, sell or rehab a home the the Twin Cities Metro area I would be happy to work with you. I have experience working with foreclosures, FHA properties, duplexes, condos, townhouses, short sales, HUD, and almost every kind of home transaction you can imagine.
