Bischoff will Partner with Realtor® Karen Gessell

Tammi Bischoff of Grand Rapids, Minn., recently joined Coldwell Banker Northwoods Realty as a Realtor®. She will partner with realtor Karen Gessell as a real estate team within the Coldwell Banker Northwoods Realty brokerage. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Tammi on board,” said Coldwell Banker Northwoods Realty Broker/Owner Mike Kellin. “She’s a smart, savvy businessperson with great knowledge of the area and a sincere passion for real estate. She and Karen will make a fabulous team.”

Bischoff owned and operated a variety of successful businesses in the Twin Cities with her late husband Jon McLaughlin, including a car wash, laundromat and fire truck sales and equipment company. Yet, she’s very familiar with the Grand Rapids area as her family has owned a cabin here since 2005. Tammi moved to Grand Rapids permanently in 2012 after marrying Grant Bischoff. Their blended family includes seven children.

“I’ve always had a passion for real estate, but with our large family, I didn’t have a very flexible schedule. Most of our children are now grown, so it’s the perfect time.” said Bischoff. “I love the process of transforming a house to make it a home. It’s so rewarding to help people find their perfect place.” 

Bischoff can be reached at or (612) 669-1838 (cell), or at Coldwell Banker Northwoods Realty at 812 S. Pokegama Ave. in Grand Rapids.
