Meet Kellie Krumwiede of Connect Real Estate Group

I moved to Mankato in 2004 when I began attending MSU and stayed when I was finished. I love the Central/Southern Minnesota area and believe it is a great place to call home! With experience in property management, real estate investing and even a little flipping – when it comes to buying, selling or renting – I can help with it all!

My passion for real estate & housing emerged during my own home search. The number of decisions, choices and questions I had was overwhelming! I realized it’s extremely important for buyers or sellers to have good support and communication with their agent during this sometimes confusing process.  I am a driven, honest, knowledgeable, and attentive person. I continue to educate myself about the real estate industry and all of the changes so, when someone chooses to work with me, they know they’re getting the best service possible. I pride myself on always being able to provide or find an answer for my clients and am committed to helping my clients succeed in their real estate goals!
