Isle, Minn. (PRWEB) April 17, 2017
“Isle and the Mille Lacs Lake area appealed to us because it is a logical extension of the markets we are already in, north of the Twin Cities,” said Alex Grundhoffer, senior vice president, Minnesota division manager, North American Title Co. “Of course, finding experienced, qualified staff is the hard part. But once we interviewed Jenna and Allyson and knew we had good local people, the decision to open in Isle became an easy one.”
Lake Mille Lacs is one of Minnesota’s largest lakes, at 132,500 acres, and is known for its fishing, golfing and other outdoor recreational activities. The local real estate market to be served by the new North American Title office includes homes, cabins and lake lots in Isle and other towns surrounding the lake.
Statistics from the Greater Lakes Association of Realtors (GLAR) indicate an 8.5 percent increase in closed home sales for the period, January 2016 to January 2017. The median sales price increased 7.7 percent and the number of homes for sale dropped 26.1 percent over the same time period. With more than 550 Realtor members, GLAR serves central Minnesota, including Aitkin, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Todd and Wadena counties.
“With good people in place, it is upon us as an organization to give them the tools they need to succeed in this increasingly complicated business,” added Grundhoffer. “This is a formula we have followed with success in our other outstate markets and we hope to replicate that experience here.”
The new North American Title office is located at 225 W. Main Street, Suite B, Isle, MN 56342, telephone number (320) 676-1329.
