Joel Anderson – Realtor
“Every Move Matters”
I was born in St. Paul and lived there until the ripe old age of 7 when my family moved to the lovely town of Tyler, MN in the Southwest part of the state. My dad was a pastor of a small Baptist church and I spent my formative years growing up in an ideal setting of rural living.
My first experiences of hard work were walking beans, picking rock, baling hay, and milking cows occasionally during Jr. High and High School. I moved onto a lawn mowing business with my older brother as well as painting during the summer months.
It was during my Junior year of high school that I realized I wanted to go into a career in real estate. I had 2 friends who’s moms were both Realtor’s and I knew it would be a good fit for my entrepreneurial spirit and desire for working with people.
After graduating from RTR High School my parents moved back to the cities and still reside in White Bear Lake. I graduated from Mankato St. University (MN State Mankato) with a Business Administration Degree majoring in Finance, Insurance, & Real Estate or what we called a F.I.R.E. degree.
As soon as I was done with school I married my wife Lisa and we have 5 wonderful children, 4 boys and 1 girl, with our daughter being the youngest. We have also added a daughter in law and 1 grandson to our family which is more fun than we could have imagined. We have lived in the NE Suburbs of St. Paul our entire married life and resided in our current home in North Oaks for the last 16 years.
Being a Realtor has been very rewarding in the 25 years I’ve been licensed and I’ve enjoyed getting to know and become friends with many of my clients. I’ve enjoyed a fantastic business by doing repeat business and receiving lots of referrals from many past clients.
I’ve also enjoyed the different aspects and opportunities real estate has offered our family. Owning rental properties, renovating homes, and owning a lake cabin have given my wife and I insight into many different facets that real estate can offer and sharing that knowledge and experience has been valuable to numerous clients.
What I most enjoy now about real estate is the opportunity of working with a team and being able to serve our clients with a better level of service that wasn’t possible for the years I was working by myself.
