Carissa’s all-or-nothing personality keeps her motivated to go “all in” in everything that she does, and she takes so much pride in her work. She has obtained her real estate license in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Carissa was born and raised in small town southern Minnesota. In 2017, she began to dabble in real estate investment in Mankato, Minnesota which sparked a new love for her. To this day she continues to take old, worn-down houses and turn them into beautiful homes. In between work and house renovations, she fostered dogs with a local nonprofit organization and helped 5 dogs find their forever homes. In an unexpected twist of events, her fifth foster dog became the third pup to join her family.
The idea of being a real estate salesperson had surfaced in Carissa’s mind many times over the years, but the possibility really hit home for her when her husband graduated college and started his job as a software engineer, making it possible for her to focus on her new career path.
Currently Carissa lives near the Mississippi River with her husband, her daughter, and their 3 dogs: Chevy, Apollo, and Clio. She loves fishing, nature walks, going to car shows, grilling out, and gardening/landscaping when the weather is nice while trying to make the best of Minnesota winters with snowboarding in the colder months!
