My name is Todd Christenson. Our family moved to Grand Rapids in 1964 and lived on Pokegama Lake where the backyard was endless and the lake had so much to offer. Back then it was a 10 horse motor on a 14 foot boat and you learned every neighbor, resort and drop off on the lake. I knew this was where I would raise my family.
I graduated from Grand Rapids High School and went on to St John’s University where I met my wife, Jacque. Both of our children graduated from Grand Rapids and have now moved on to successful careers.
I was a Sales Rep for logging and heavy equipment in northern Minnesota and drove countless days learning the countryside. I was also very involved in buying & selling tracts of land for recreational purposes or just cabins for a “get away”.
I started a small sanitation company which quickly grew into serving the majority of all commercial business in town. In doing so, I learned in detail all of the community’s residential, retail and government system in Itasca County. This was very beneficial to becoming a real estate salesperson. When someone bought a house and needed garbage pickup, we were called. If a business was coming to town, we provided complete services. If someone was moving and needed to clean up the property, we could provide a roll off dumpster to suit the job. I sold the company, but retained the knowledge on what people are looking for in a home or business in the Grand Rapids area.
Experience and personal connection are assets that I can offer to help you with your real estate needs. I look forward to helping you in the purchase or sale of your home.
