There’s no shortage of remarkable stories in real estate. Behind every professional, whether an upstart innovator or a renowned broker, there is a reason for being, underlying their passion and driving every transaction. One Realtor has cemented her place as a staple of the North Dakota/Minnesota real estate scene through a generational rise that speaks to the enduring value of reliability.

Lynn Kvidt, an Associate Broker at Greenberg Realty, came into the industry through a mixture of her outgoing personality and glimmering ambition. It resulted in a business that provides ceaseless success and happiness for her and her clients without the existential pressure that looms over many in such a competitive industry. Her journey is a case study demonstrating the importance of sustainability to any aspiring agent and the kind of professional to look for when selling your home.

“I think my success is because I get referrals from family—I’m now into the grandkids!” Lynn reveals. “I don’t have to do a lot of advertising or cold calling because I’ve been around this area for so long, working referrals, going to conferences, and meeting people that send back business. It creates a good feeling that they would trust me with their family members.”

Integrity is central to Lynn’s 38 years of successful home sales. Being trusted to deliver transparent and educational service is vital to becoming the best real estate agent in North Dakota/Minnesota. Here’s how Lynn Kvidt earned a claim to that title:

Banking beginnings

Before she became a North Dakota/Minnesota real estate stalwart, Lynn Kvidt had a career in finance. But it wasn’t an overnight switch. The expertise and insight that originated during her banking career continue to develop today, as her financial qualifications stretch far beyond those of a typical real estate agent.

“I was doing house loans in a banking institution, and a good friend of mine, now my broker, told me I should be on the other side of the desk selling real estate,” Lynn explains. “It sounded interesting, so I thought I’d give it a try, and I never got out!”

Throughout a career well into its fourth decade, there are few areas of banking and real estate Lynn hasn’t spent time in. Selling is a process she knows inside out, having done closings, sold insurances, and even helped with retirement planning.

Her experience stems back to when handling all aspects wasn’t an optional benefit but a necessary skill: “We used to close our own loans and draw our own deeds back in the day.” Any circumstances can lead to a sale, and this diverse, first-hand experience is invaluable in an increasingly digital sector.

An eagerness to educate

For a successful home sale, your realtor needs to do two things: navigate the process and communicate with you every step of the way. Whether educating others or developing new skills, Lynn Kvidt has been enthusiastic about learning since her real estate career began. Continually evolving her expertise has been fundamental to establishing her trusted status.

Lynn took courses at the College for Financial Planning and H&R Block Tax School to enhance her monetary know-how. Strong instincts about a home’s worth are essential during a sale, and the North Dakota School of Banking graduate also pursued appraisal, taking several courses to refine her intuition.

As a result of her built-up wisdom and extensive experience, Lynn can offer clients various solutions, tailoring her offering to their financial or real estate goals. Investments, new construction, rental properties, and 1031 tax-deferred exchanges are all on the table. Even The University of North Dakota holds her expertise in high regard, offering her the opportunity to teach Real Estate Finance.

Set up to sell

But without the second element—communication—no education is worthwhile. Selling your home can be daunting, so the person on the other end of the phone can make or break your success. Lynn Kvidt prioritizes responsiveness, as engaging with clients’ desires and concerns is vital for helping them achieve their goals.

“If clients have a question, they know they can call or text me anytime, and I’ll have the answer,” she says. “If I don’t, I’ll have a contact that they can go to.”

Lynn Kvidt’s philosophy is refreshingly simple: tell it like it is. Combine that honesty with a knack for appraisal and a willingness to adapt to any client’s aspirations, and it’s easy to see how a banking professional became one of The North Star State’s most respected realtors. Sellers shouldn’t settle for a present-day compromise when long-standing success is available on the other end of a phone.
