Here is a list of our local favorites, and why they are so important to us.
Local Best for Real Estate Investors in Brainerd, MN
Antje Anderson – Real Estate Agent with Aspen Real Estate Services, LLC:
There are many (MANY) real estate agents in the local area, but Antje Anderson is the best of the best. She’s a second generation real estate agent, and her knowledge and keen eye are second to none. The best part is her humor and fun personality; she makes an already stressful environment feel relaxed and like an adventure.
Her hidden talents of interior design and home decorating are an added bonus to a real estate investor.
She’s a huge asset to have on our Brainerd real estate investing team!
Joe Sparks – Mortgage Loan Originator with First Western Bank & Trust:
Joe is the type of loan office you want to work with, when you’re getting a mortgage. He’s approachable, responsive, and gets the job done.
He makes the process as easy and painless as possible, which is a far cry from how the mortgage process can sometimes be. Contact Joe Sparks at [email protected]
Crow Wing County Abstract Co. – Title Company:
Crow Wing Country Abstract Co. is our preferred choice of title company. Lori, Diane and their team get to work for us behind the scenes, and unless something major comes up, they handle everything for us.

They are super easy to work with, and offer the best rates we’ve seen; another key player in our real estate investing team.
Real Property Management Deluxe:
Part of our real estate investment strategy is to NOT get bogged down in the day-to-day managing of our rental properties. We want to focus on the higher level parts of our business as an investor, not get stuck in the weeds as a landlord. That’s where Taylor and his team at Real Property Management Deluxe comes in. They’re the most popular property manager in the area and for good reason! We wouldn’t want to be on a journey of owning rental properties without someone like Taylor to help us run them.
Tad Johnson with B. Johnson and Associates – Tax Services
One of the key parts to running any successful business is making sure you’ve got the tax aspect taken care of. Especially in real estate, where one of the amazing benefits is the potential tax savings, you need to make sure you have a quality tax accountant you can rely on. Tad Johnson is that person for us; a CPA with one of the smartest minds we’ve ever met. There’s no question he can’t answer, and we know he has our best interests in mind. Contact Tad at [email protected]
