As you house hunt in Hanover, look for the yard with the greenest landscaping and you may just be looking at Jamie Kenton’s home.

“I LOVE yard work! The greener the better; thank God for sprinkler systems!” he said, laughing, when asked about his passions outside of real estate.

Kenton was born and raised in Minnesota, mainly in Robbinsdale and Brooklyn Park. He spent summers at his grandmother’s place on Twin Lake, hunting down painted turtles, fishing and swimming (the lake wasn’t green back then).

Jamie bought a house at 19 years old. “I bought a beat-up old house in Robbinsdale and remodeled it from top to bottom,” he says. “That was when I realized my love for real estate.”

At 22, Jamie was a loan officer (and later the branch manager) for a mortgage company. He enjoyed working with people to find the money to purchase a home, but his heart was set on helping them to actually find and sell homes. So, nine years ago, he made the jump and has never looked back. KLRE feels blessed to have him on board.

When he’s not assisting Twin Cities’ residents with buying and selling homes, Kenton spends time with his family. “I have a 2 year-old little princess who thinks she runs the house and has a lot to say about it (that may be my fault), and a 5 year-old son who loves helping me around the yard. He wakes up in the morning ready to go outside,” he said, chuckling.

Jamie’s love of family time extends to his siblings as well. “I have two brothers and three sisters,” he begins. “We hang out all the time. Summer BBQ's are our thing, yard games and lounging in the yard. My family is AWESOME.”

But there is one member of the family Jamie seems to be a bit partial to: Mrs. Kenton. “I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my wife . . . my rock!”

We asked Jamie Kenton what he likes most about his real estate career. “I love watching my clients light up when I find them the house. The excitement is so contagious! I mean, I actually get to help people fulfill their dreams. What a rewarding job!

Reviews for Kris Lindahl Real Estate

I highly recommend the Kris Lindahl team. I liked that Kirsten Dillon had almost 24/7 availability, her targeted search criteria, her intimate knowledge of the market I was looking to buy into, her spot-on assessments of the relative value of houses, and her willingness to visit houses even when I was looking only for comparison purposes. She helped me arrange financing. She also assisted me in finding competent, reliable, and reasonably priced contractors for both immediate and longer-term work after the sale. She knows her market. She's a hands-on, active agent who produced fast results. I would work with her again without hesitation.

Julie Dial from Kris Lindahl Real Estate is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. From our initial consultation, she was very knowledgeable, direct, and clearly understood our preferences. She worked diligently and efficiently to show us high quality properties in a timely fashion (which is very important in today’s market). She was incredibly accessible and responsive throughout the buying process and put us in the best position possible to buy our dream home. We appreciated her extensive knowledge of the market and she was just an all-around great person to work with. I recommend her highly to my friends and colleagues and very much look forward to working with her in the future.

From the moment Karen Busch walked into my home, I knew I was in good hands. She immediately had several great suggestions and helped us find the perfect way to present the property to sell. It was truthfully a stress-free process from beginning to end because of how transparent and responsive Karen was throughout. With my new home purchase, the service was equally stellar. We probably privately toured well over a dozen properties. Her advice was invaluable, eventually leading to us selecting the perfect property for our family. If you are looking for a true partner in your sale or home purchase, I highly recommend giving Karen Busch a call.
