Lezli Engen – Realtor with Coldwell Banker Burnet

Lezli Engen is a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Burnet and works with The Lakes Resource Group in the Wayzata office, but is able to meet clients in any of the Minneapolis/St. Paul offices.  Being part of a team means that even if she’s busy with another client, she always has a partner available to meet your needs.

Lezli loves working with people and getting to know them as well as the process of helping them find the right home for whatever stage of life they’re in.  Lezli has had enough life experiences to know that not every move is a move to your ‘dream’ home.  There’s upsizing and downsizing and rightsizing and sometimes the moves are emotional!  She prides herself on listening to your needs and wants and finding you the home that meets as many of those criteria as possible.

Lezli has been through a divorce herself and has assisted clients with the selling of the family home and securing other living arrangements for both parties.  She understands the delicacy of communication during this process as well as confidentiality and, if appropriate, the importance of maintaining consistency for school districts, sports and location for the kids.

Lezli prides herself on streamlining every aspect of the transaction for her clients:  connecting them with a reputable mortgage broker so that they’re able to get the best rates on a mortgage, getting the property inspected and handling all negotiations that are necessary, while always keeping your best interests top of mind.  She’ll do the research to be sure that you list your home at the right price or make a good offer on a property, coordinate with the mortgage company, inspection and organize a smooth closing for you!
