Michelle is a long-term Minnesotan who grew up in a small town. She has always enjoyed the distinct role of being part of a team and working with people. As a youngster, being active and participating in a variety of activities was something she embraced. As she reflects, it was a path to connecting with diverse groups of people from interests of sports or education to the arts. She started working in the smalltown grocery store at the age of thirteen and found herself blessed by the connections she made with community members. Eventually, she started working for a nursing home in a neighboring community where she found a passion for bonding with families in a very personable way leading to a career in healthcare as a Registered Nurse for the past three decades. She graduated from Minnesota State University-Mankato with a BSN in nursing and has worked alongside many unrivaled team members.

Her background in the healthcare field has allowed her to practice in various aspects of the nursing field including having worked as a float nurse in the hospital inpatient care setting (from pediatrics, oncology, OB/GYN to the ICU/CCU), Supervisor of an outpatient Specialty Clinic, Occupational and Employee Health Case Manager for Northwest Airlines, case review for Minnesota’s Quality Improvement Organization, Manager of Utilization Review and other quality work within a health insurance company, and many other roles. She was fortunate to have been the first student to have completed her synthesis with an air ambulance service (Life Link). Throughout her career, she has gained many skills which will transfer well into the real estate profession. Some examples include being detail-oriented, working well under pressure, compassionate, having strong listening skills, and being personable. A major role in nursing is ongoing education. She looks forward to combining her love for learning and teaching into the field of real estate as well.

Why real estate? Why now? She purchased her first home while attending nursing school in the town of Mankato, MN, when she was in her early twenties. As she looked at homes, her real estate agent and father had her consider different home features to match her wants and needs at the time, which aided in her to make the best investment choice (of course they picked the home she wasn’t quite sold on at the time; but in the end, it was the perfect home!).

Since then, she and her husband have purchased several different homes. She relishes walking through the Parade of Homes and working on home improvement projects whether it’s internal or external. Her dad was in the construction trades and has taught her numerous ways to identify home upgrade opportunities over the years. With this background, she now feels she has the skills and resources to help others in their real estate investment.

In her spare time, she enjoys relaxing with family and friends. She has four adult children (three sons and a daughter). Over the years, they have built a love for traveling, camping, and fishing as a family. Her children also carried out her passion for sports and music. She has spent many, many early mornings, late nights, and weekends at ice arenas or ball fields. And, of course, they rarely miss a MN Wild (all of her kids play ice hockey- and yes, two are goalies) or MN Twins game. For the past twenty-seven years, through these activities, she has made amazing friendships.

As life happens, there have been many curve balls thrown her way as well. In the past decade, we survived the 2008 housing crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic which has provided her with first-hand and second-hand experiences and knowledge. She believes all of these experiences have provided her with key essentials to help ease some of your worries as you invest in real estate whether buying your first home, second home, or preparing for your retirement home.

She looks forward to representing you during one of your biggest investment journeys. She will provide you with professional and timely representation.

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!
