About Eli

Hi! My name is Eli. I am a full-time real estate enthusiast (for 11 years) and a full-time life enthusiast (for 41 years).  
I grew up in Minnesota and I love my job. Guiding people through some of the biggest moments of their lives is a sizable undertaking and I take it very seriously. Every day is different, every client is different and every home is different. That means each day I have to stay focused and on my toes! 
I always keep a few select principles at heart when I conduct my business: practice good karma, be good to myself and be good to others. The details will follow and good things will happen for all. My past clients will agree; in fact, 90% of my transactions in 2019 were repeat and referral clients. Running my real estate practice at Engel & Völkers is a natural extension of these core values, as E&V truly personifies them as well.  
On a more personal note: Music! I’m a life-long drummer and went to school for music. I played and taught in marching percussion, rock bands, hip-hop bands and I love going to see live shows. Travel! Want to swap stories about the best places you’ve been? How about the “To-Visit-Next” list? Let’s talk over a cup of coffee or a beer sometime. 
I live in Southwest Minneapolis with my wife, Emily, our fur-babies (3 dogs and a cat), and our newest addition, adorable (human) toddler Miles!. I love rock climbing, yoga, podcasts, learning, skiing of both varieties, wine, beer, eating out and in. 

So, let’s have fun together! Let’s reach your real estate goals together. I’m very excited and passionate about my business, and I’m very excited and passionate to be your real estate advisor for life.
