Amy Hiltner

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference.”
I was born and raised in the St. Joseph area and grew up working for a local multi-generational family business. This early work experience established the importance of friendly customer service and the value of “how you make people feel.”
Carrying these values with me, I fed my love of learning and passion for service to begin a career caring for people. I graduated from the College of St. Benedict in 2000 with a BSN and worked as a nurse for 20 years. Integrity, transparency, and excellent communication are strengths I developed throughout that time and continue to carry over into my real estate transactions.
My real estate experience began when my husband and I took on the adventure of rental management in 2006. Subsequently, rehab/renovation experience was added as we navigated several projects on properties we bought and sold.
In 2017, I obtained my Real estate license so I could help others with home ownership! I enjoy representing and educating clients as they navigate the buying, selling, and building process. I am also a proud participant of the Homes for Heroes program which offers discounts to qualified service professionals when they buy or sell. Ask me about it!
I would love the opportunity to work with you!

Scott Shosted

“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.

Rachel Koubsky

Even cleaning a bathroom can be fun with the right people.

Growing up in Central MN on a hobby farm has helped lay a foundation of hard work, persistence, integrity, and care, in my life.

My passion for real estate started in college when in my third year of school I applied for my first mortgage. I knew even then the impact of home ownership! Even though I was denied due to insufficient income, I didn’t let that stop me from dreaming about owning my own home. I continued to chase down that dream and bought my first home just a few years after in Sartell, and later turned that home into a rental property.

Sartell has been my home as I’ve served as a pastor at The Waters Church for over 14 years. My husband Nick teaches Math at Sartell High School and coaches basketball, and we have twin girls, Audra & Nellie, who spice up life daily! As a family, we love to travel, entertain in our home, and go on adventures. Our family’s core conviction and desire is to help people be who they are created to be in every aspect of their lives.

As a realtor, my number one priority is the people I get to serve.  My greatest joy in life is connecting people. If I don’t have the answer for you, I won’t stop until I find someone that does.  My desire to connect people shines in the home buying and selling process.

I’m passionate about all things real estate. Whether house hunting, staging, marketing, or just having a vision for what could be, I want to go the extra mile to make sure your needs and dreams are my top priority.

Molly Voigt

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”  

Molly was born and raised in Central MN, attended schools in both St. Cloud and Sartell, and eventually went on to the University of Minnesota. Currently, she is a full-time real estate agent and mom to her son, Devonne.

Molly started her career in real estate in 2021 while finishing her degree at the University of Minnesota. Making selling real estate a career decision was a result of exposure and observation. She fostered her love for helping people buy and sell real estate through her mom’s diligent efforts to build an independently owned and operated brokerage. Having been surrounded by real estate professionals for years, Molly knows it is a personal business that thrives on helping people, not selling. Constant exposure to the business has armed Molly with skills that benefit buyers and sellers from the start. Whether it was talking to her mom, listening to her experiences, or being right alongside her for appointments- the opportunity to help people buy and sell real estate is a business that requires active engagement and commitment.

Molly offers a fresh perspective on the buying and selling experience. She has watched many transactions come together over the years and is being trained in today’s ever-changing market. Molly has the customer service skills and passion of a new agent and the smarts and hands–on experience of a seasoned professional. It is vital in the real estate industry to have confidence, integrity, and a commitment to work alongside buyers and sellers to make it an effortless transaction process. Molly works persistently to do just that, while simultaneously creating friendships that last well beyond the home buying and selling process. She is focused on serving clients and giving back to the community that helped raise her and is grateful for the chance to work for VoigtJohnson, who shares the same core principles. More importantly, she is excited to work with you and find you the home of your dreams!
