“Character is how you act when nobody is watching.”
I feel very fortunate that I am able to combine my passion for people and real estate into a career with VoigtJohnson.  I work with a great team and enjoy serving others in their real estate needs.
Growing up on a dairy farm in central Minnesota taught me many lessons I use on a daily basis.  Hard work and honesty are the two biggest virtues I take from my time on the farm and have been an integral part of my real estate career.  Today I live in Sartell with my wife Sara and our children Avery and Ashton.  I love being part of the VoigtJohnson team and feel incredibly blessed to do what I love for a living.
I began my real estate career in 2009 when I purchased my first rental home.  After owning and managing multiple investment properties, I now get to help my clients realize their goals of homeownership.  Whether it’s an investment property or your dream home, my expertise in the St. Cloud real estate market allows me to provide professional services to my clients during the home buying or selling process.
Buying or selling a home is a major step in a person’s life; you deserve to have someone that understands that working for you.  I work with great people and always strive to put the clients needs above anything else.  I believe if I do that, everything else will take care of itself.
I look forward to working with you.
