Andrew Knutson - REALTOR®
A home is a refuge, a place for family, friends, community, and everything that you hold dearest. A home can be your own creative masterpiece, but most of all it is your own. I am committed to making your experience with Lakes Area Realty exceptional. My clients often describe me as a genuine people person who exceeds expectations – one who brings a unique perspective, creative and analytical thinking, and problem-solving skills to each situation. I bring dedication, integrity, and years of contract negotiation skills to the table every time. I get results. Your needs and priorities are my #1 focus. As my own family has moved all over the country, we know that having a skilled and dedicated agent is the key to getting the best terms and price as well as ensuring a smooth transaction.
I first moved here to attend Hamline University in 1994, earning degrees in English, Religion, and a minor in philosophy. I then graduated top of my class from Carlson School of Management with a master’s degree in Human Resources, which lead to a successful career in Compensation and HR consulting where I gained crucial skills negotiating contracts, winning clients, and managing and executing large projects for clients. I decided to try something new with these skills and I made the decision to join my mother and aunt in a family real estate business in Washington, D.C. I was lucky to learn the ropes from the best. They were, and we maintained, a nationally ranked top 1% team in sales nationally.
Home has been many places for me, but no place has been home longer than the Twin Cities. During my 15 years in Minnesota, my wife calls me an honorary Minnesotan and I humbly accept. The Twin Cities metro is one of the top places to live nationally and for good reason. Whatever you love to do, and your interests are, they are here. You can find abundant greenspace and parks, vibrant neighborhoods, bustling urban hubs, incredible food, music, theater, unique winter activities, and quiet backyard scenes. As a music lover of many genres, I enjoy the lively and varied local and national music scene. I am thrilled to be back in the Twin Cities working with the spectacular team of dedicated and talented agents of the Chris Dennis Group of Lakes Area Realty. Let’s work together!
