Mike Olafson - REALTOR®
After a successful career as a lawyer at a leading Twin Cities firm, I am now a licensed Realtor® with Lakes Area Realty in its Minneapolis Uptown office. As a Realtor®, I blend the skills I learned as a lawyer, including client service, negotiating and ethical business practices, with my interests in architecture, home renovation and interior design - especially color, my favorite.
I am a longtime Minneapolis resident and have renovated three homes in the Linden Hills, Kenwood and Lowry Hill neighborhoods, which means I have extensive knowledge of vintage homes (from English cottage to Arts and Crafts to mid-century modern) and the Minneapolis lakes area market. I also have experience working with clients in the Crocus Hill, Summit Hill and Macalester-Groveland neighborhoods of St. Paul.
My objective is to work with buyers and sellers of homes throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul and the close-in suburbs, helping them achieve their home ownership goals on the best possible terms.
