Thank you for taking the time to review our website.
I am Kevin Sutton, Husband, Dad, and Realtor. My wife Helen and I have been in real estate nearing 20 years now. We have had our hands in every aspect of the market, specializing in the single family residential arena but certainly are not limited to this. Investment, commercial, multi-family and new construction have all been regularly made part of our extensive portfolio.
I am a Chicago native that was transferred to the twin cities in early 1994 with The St. Paul Insurance Companies. My time with the Medical Underwriting Division was cut short due to a merger that took place. I retained me employment with St. Paul only to be involved in another merger in which I had to decide whether to move out east with the new company or take severance and begin a new journey.
I’ll give you one guess on what I chose… I immediately began rehabbing homes, I had extensive experience doing this while living in Chicago and was very comfortable tackling homes and reconditioning them for the market. After completing several homes, I decided that I would get into real estate as a bonified realtor and position myself in the market allowing me to act on my own in purchasing and selling homes for myself and for clients. My wife saw that this was truly developing into a career and opted out of her fulltime position at HCMC and climbed onboard the real estate wagon.
We never looked back!!! Working with clients has been the most rewarding experience that I could imagine. Helping people dream build and succeed with great profits and their white picket fences is the best feeling in the world. My knowledge of homes surpasses so many agents in the market that client’s decision to work with us is very easy. I have an EXTENSIVE network of contractors and suppliers that allow us to save money at nearly every step of the “preparation of sale” and give buyers the confidence in knowing that their new home will be treated with the same care and consideration as there SOLD home!
I adopted the slogan “When Quality Matters” many years ago. We live up to that slogan every day!
Serving Woodbury, Lake Elmo, Afton, Maplewood, Cottage Grove, Oakdale St. Paul and all surrounding communities with passion and vigor. THE HOME SOLUTIONS TEAM ~ WHEN QUALITY MATTERS
