Karissa Elgersma, Realtor

 A Twin Cities transplant, I started out my real estate career in central Iowa in 2015, until my husband and I moved to the Twin Cities in 2017. We are slowly renovating our fixer-upper in St. Paul into our dream home. We have a two-year old son and a baby on the way! Originally a social worker in the Des Moines, IA area, I’ve always had a desire to guide and advocate for the best interests of my clients and I love that I can continue to do that in real estate!

My husband (an architect) and I are passionate about budget-conscious design that is approachable for everyone, not just big houses or big budgets. Through our collaboration, Modest Moderns, we love to help homebuyers and sellers dream up and create the home they’ve always wanted by being creative and resourceful with every dollar of their budget and square inch of their house . We see a lot of value brought to homeowners when you can have both real estate and design expertise meet in one experience and you can feel confident about your home purchase in the longterm.
