We have a good thing going. We team up with the kind of people you want to be friends with: happy, passionate, always curious, compassionate, imaginative, collaborative, and ambitious. We seek to make an impact in people’s lives – a positive difference that helps people enjoy life more. Because the difference we can make in the world starts within our own walls.
I am known as the “design guy” around the office. I’ve worked with R. Fleming clients for nearly seven years. My job is like giving Christmas gifts every day. Seeing the look on our clients’ faces when they see the home of their dreams is a gift that keeps on giving. I knew from an early age that I wanted to design homes. After working in various parts of the industry I found my stride with R. Fleming. I get to think about each angle, joint, and window – everything that makes the house whole. I believe in creating highly-functional spaces that capture the way people really live. I live in Rochester with my wife Ashley, our four kids, our Great Pyrenees Ana and a cat who would prefer to remain anonymous.
As an adventure seeker by nature, I have always been drawn to a challenge. I approach everything with a smile because I genuinely enjoy what I do, which is so much more than real estate – it’s helping people realize their dreams. Making connections with people and finding out how I can best serve them goes hand-in-hand with my background in hospitality. I was inspired to do more and found real estate as the best way I could help people. Working with North House is the next step – an opportunity to really bring a new experience to my clients and work with some of the best in the business. When I’m not serving my clients, I can be found spending time with my son Noah competing in triathlons, traveling to far off places (Thailand is our favorite so far), and enjoying the outdoors any way we can.
I am the founder of R. Fleming construction and I’ve been in the real estate industry for nearly 40 years. I’m old! The one thing I can say I’ve learned over the years is that people always need to come first.
We are in the service industry and having a commitment to excellence in our interactions with customers and with the product we produce is how we have found success. If you listen to the needs, wants and wishes of the people – then you’ll always be successful.
I like taking chances and doing something different – based on the customer. I’m an introverted family man, by nature. So you won’t likely see me at any large gatherings, instead I’ll be spending time at the lake with my wife Sharon and our two dogs Otis and Sophie.
The times have changed a lot since I first started, but one trend that will never go away is quality. I believe in quality construction, quality people, quality service.
Growing up in the Twin Cities, I always knew I was a people person – and now that I’ve moved south to Rochester, I’m ready to put my personality to use for your house hunt. I’m here to help you find the perfect home for your family, and I think the best way to do that is by getting to know you first. Whether during my time as a video intern in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, working in the activities department of a high school, or even my days in the retail industry in the Twin Cities, I’ve always enjoyed being part of a team. That’s why I jumped on the opportunity to work at North House – this is a great team of people that know their stuff and work well with each other. That’s a winning combination, if you ask me. When I’m not in the office, you can catch me relaxing at the house with my girlfriend and my dog, or on the golf course (hopefully) lowering my handicap.
I love working on a team and am known as our jack of all trades. My parents taught me the value of commitment, collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit. I’m a doer and am always challenging myself to learn more. As the youngest child I learned that having patience and a good attitude always leads to the best outcome. I approach every situation with an open mind and sense of humor. I built my first home at the age of 24 and loved everything about the building experience. I was born into the real estate and building industry, so new construction is in my blood – I love the art of it. I help make sure each and every transaction runs smoothly for our clients and team. In my free time I enjoy traveling, vacationing at our family cabin, and spending time with my Basset Hound, Finn.
I’m known for my insatiable curiosity, devotion to clients, movie knowledge and love of Chipotle. My years of experience in the beverage industry taught me about integrity in business negotiations and how to listen to my intuition. I have boundless enthusiasm for everything I do and love to get people excited with me. I take time to listen and always put clients first because this is not about me or my ego. I approach each day with a smile while working hard to do what is right and fair so each person can have a positive real estate experience. And I’m going to make sure we have fun in the process. In my free time I can be found watching YouTube, scouring the web for the best deals on flights, playing and coaching hockey, golfing and spending time with my girlfriend Tanya and our English bulldog, Avery.
We are not ego driven or stuck in our ways at North House. And we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are forward-thinking and trustworthy. We are responsible and have each other’s back. Our integrity is everything. This is a people-centric business, it’s not about the money. So when we connect with people, that’s how we know we’re doing something right.
We’re not a fit for everyone. We take our culture seriously. If this resonates with you, we want to talk. But beware: we practice what we preach. We have a process to help ensure we’re a good match for each other. If you’re up to it and this sounds like the way you want to work, we cannot wait to meet you.
