Brett Schimke never had an interest in being a stereotypical salesperson. He’s never been a fan of the cliché selling techniques that come with the process of working with someone on a purchase or sale. It was the frustration of working with sales people who see you as a number versus a person, combined with the love for a property’s potential, that made Brett want to become a real estate agent.

Brett was raised on a farm in a small Minnesota town north of the cities. Helping out with projects and daily tasks is where he learned what it means to have a strong work ethic. It helped him acquire skills that would make him a competent DIYer and even work for his brother’s General Contracting company for some time. But Brett’s passion has always been music. He received bachelor degrees in both Audio Engineering and Music Composition from a private music college, has been a drummer in multiple bands, played trumpet in the U of M marching band, and currently plays keyboard in a local 10-piece cover band. After graduation, he moved across state lines to Wisconsin for two years so that his wife complete her Master’s degree. While there, Brett helped a successful entrepreneur build a recording studio from the ground up and was the studio’s head engineer. After moving back to Minnesota, Brett focused on the technical side of audio, working as a residential A/V installer and eventually a commercial A/V engineer. He, his wife, and his son have settled down in Stillwater and his family means the world to him.

Brett has always been a “picky” person and knows first-hand how the little things are just as important as the big things while shopping for your next home. Finding exactly what you want, or realizing a vision to make something exactly what you want, is hard to do. A good agent makes this process easy for their clients. Taking the stress and uncomfortable feelings out of the process rather than mastering sales tactics has a much more positive affect on people, and that’s what his goal is with each person Brett meets.

Reviews for Kris Lindahl Real Estate

Carmen was a key part of our project. She showed us multiple properties and offered her knowledge about the pros and cons of each property. She brainstormed with us on the property we purchased and we ended up using some of her suggestions when we remodeled the home. As we got close to finishing she was right there for photos and staging as well as encouragement to finish up and get it listed again. She was right on the money with her market knowledge. We will definitely work with Carmen again on our next flip.

Great service! Great team! Amanda Rose has helped me on multiple real estate properties. She handled the listing and sale of a residential property for me and everything went perfectly. Amanda’s attention to detail, her integrity, and her effective negotiating skills are top notch. It was a stress free experience working with her. She will always be my first call when I need a realtor.

Gregorio spent so much time walking through houses with us (including creepy cellars!) so we could see every part of a house during our virtual showings. He worked non-stop for the two days we were in town to see as many houses in person as possible. Once we chose our home and our offer was accepted, Gregorio kept us up to date on everything and when we hit snags, he was always quick to respond. He really went above and beyond in making sure we were taken care of. 100% recommend!
