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

We are moving out of state. Thought about selling our home ourselves. We heard about the Guarantee Offer program and reached out to the Kris Lindahl team. Josh MacDonald was the agent that came to meet with us in our home and explain our options. He was personable and professional. He explained the Guarantee Offer program and also explained that we had many options and levels of service that we could get by listing our home with him. We were very pleased that he had a free cancellation policy. We felt we had nothing to lose by engaging him as our agent. We could still try to sell our selves, or rent out our home, etc. if we did not get an offer that we wanted, or if we changed our minds for any reason. Thanks Josh!

I love my home!!!! After months with a realtor and not getting the attention I needed to buy my 1st home. Donna and I just briefly talked about my experience and she showed me a house and it was a done deal from there. Since Donna took over as my realtor it was like night and day. Any think I needed she was there. It did take time to find my forever home, but Donna was so patient and she fought side by side with me day by day to make sure I get what I wanted. I can’t explain how happy I am with my forever home and how happy I am she came into my life when she did. Thank you Donna Dahl for all that you did for me.

We recently bought our first home and the experience was amazing. We called Kris Lindahl Real Estate after working with two other brokers. The level of service and expertise was unmatched. We made an offer at 2pm on a Friday and our offer was accepted the same day! This was our first time buying a house, so we needed to be guided every step of the way. Kris Lindahl Real Estate did just that; from the initial showing to the closing, we always felt we were well-informed and in control. We could not be happier with our decision to call Kris Lindahl Real Estate and our family is happily settling in and enjoying our new home. Thank you Kris Lindahl Real Estate! We will certainly be calling you again when the time comes for our future real estate needs.
