About Lizzi

As I step into Engel & Völkers for the very first time, I am overwhelmed with a feeling of pride, passion, and poise. Every person who I encounter greets me with a warm smile, pleasant salutations, and undivided attention. Do you know that feeling that you get in your gut when you are completely overcome with this unwavering certainty when you know you are somewhere special? There is just something almost tangible in the air that leaves you feeling invigorated, happy, and euphoric. This is exactly what I felt the first time I visited the Engel & Völkers office. I knew in my core that I was in a very special place – the energy, passion, and strive for excellence was abundantly clear and contagious. I immediately understood that I was in the right place, exactly where I wanted to be. I was nothing less than thrilled to join this amazing team, and I am delighted to share the expertise of such distinguished professionals with you. 

Growing up on the Northeast side of the cities, I was very involved in sports participating in dance, gymnastics, and track & field. I grew up traveling up north with my family and beloved dog spending as much of the Minnesota summer time on the lake as possible. After graduating from Mahtomedi High School, I pursued studies in Business, Marketing, and Sales at the University of Minnesota. Throughout college I worked as a teacher and aftercare coordinator at a Montessori Preschool. I was also involved in the Center for Sales and Leadership Education at the U of M competing on the Sales Team. 

Transitioning into life in corporate America, I started my career in business and sales at a Fortune 500 company at one of the top global recruiting and staffing agencies. I cherished playing such a critical role in an impactful part of life – someone’s job, livelihood, a means for providing for loved ones – and wanted to take my connection to life’s milestone moments one step further. I was drawn towards real estate because of how enormously special this moment in time is. To find a place to call home. A place to cook family meals, host holidays, raise a family, finish paying off student loans, bring home the first puppy, and so much more. I do not take my responsibility lightly and am honored to have the opportunity to serve you. Whether you are buying or selling your first home, an investment property, a family cabin, or a luxury estate, you deserve to have nothing less than a premier, red carpet experience. I am charmed and grateful to deliver that level of excellence to you. 

Outside of real estate, I love to spend time up north at the lake, downhill skiing in the mountains, voraciously reading, snuggling with my German Shepherd, cooking new recipes, and exploring all that the Twin Cities have to offer.
