If you have questions on anything real estate related, I’m your guy. You’ll get a straight forward, insightful, non-salesy response every time. We’ll probably have an intelligent answer for you too, and if we don’t, you can bet someone in our network will, so we have the resources to find it.

I’m a native Minnesotan and love it here. My professional background starts with a degree in entrepreneurship from the U of MN’s Carlson School of Management. From there I entered the mortgage finance field and spent seven successful years being promoted from entry level to regional management. My mortgage background has proven invaluable to real estate clients who appreciate the high level of expertise on all financial aspects of real estate.

Today and for the past ten years, I work solely on real estate sales (more than) full time. I’m proud to be among the top producers at Remax Results, the leading brokerage in the country when it comes to productivity per agent. So I’m in touch with, but also a part of, the pulse of the Twin Cities real estate market.

Jacy QuimbyCoordinator, Realtor, RE/MAX Results

My Real Estate Journey began after deciding to expand my successful nine year closing career into becoming a Realtor. My passion is and always has been working with people.

As the market changed I thought it was the right time for me to get my Real Estate License, something I had thought about getting for a long time. I joined the Real Estate Nation Team knowing I would have all of the support, expertise, and knowledge that I would need to learn the business the right way. I am enjoying the experience of helping people find the “right” home for their family. I am also the Team Coordinator for Real Estate Nation and participate in a client care role for the team’s personal clients. I enjoy helping create a home buying or listing experience that exceeds the buyers/sellers expectations as a client of our team.

Being a good listener and having a high commitment to professionalism allows me to meet the needs of our individual and personal clients. I look forward to representing you.

My education background is in Economics, and Business Management, I attended school at the College of St. Benedict (and am a proud Bennie!) in St. Joseph Minnesota.

My journey to Real Estate evolved from a career in Corporate Insurance and all began when Ben helped my husband and I purchase a home years ago. The knowledge, integrity and dedication to client service that is reflected in every Real Estate Nation transaction is why it was the right fit for me.

For almost a decade I have been pairing my passion for people with cultivated skills in Sales, Marketing, and Business Management. Fueled by an intense drive to help people; with my fun, grab life by the balls personality, I’ve created long-lasting relationships across a variety of industries—from the film and music industries to auto mechanics and skin care.

Whether you’re buying, selling, or investing or have a simple question about the market or the real estate process—I’m here as a resource, a guide, and someone to HAVE FUN with!

Each and every client holds their very own real estate adventure, and whether it’s your first home or your fifth, I can guarantee our experience will be unique and tailored just for you.

You can find me when I’m not spending time with my clients, at a hot yoga class with CorePower is your best bet; getting a nonprofit organization that benefits our military veterans off the ground, or even jumping out of airplanes. (Yes, really.)

My interest in real estate began when I started working for RE/MAX Results as an office administrator. There, I learned the ins and outs of the transactional side of real estate. I enjoyed being the go-to person for talented agents and their clients daily. After several years with the company, I decided to take the leap and get my own real estate license.

My education background is in Project and Operations Management (Minnesota State University Moorhead). I have a knack for planning and organization and have a meticulous work ethic.

I grew-up in the Northwest Minneapolis suburbs, and have a great understanding of each one of the individual neighborhoods that make up our Twin Cities. My natural urge to help others allows me to provide an experience that is sincere and relaxed. My goal is to make sure you stay informed and confident throughout the home buying process.

I find my energy being around friends and family. In my spare time you can find me checking out the newest restaurants and breweries, at a sporting event or at home hosting get-togethers. My husband and I recently purchased our first home in Plymouth near Medicine Lake. The thing we enjoy the most about being homeowners is being able to have our friends and family over for dinners, celebrations and football games – we are huge Vikings fans!

Tricia Jo Leanger
Tricia Jo LeangerMarketing Director, Realtor, RE/MAX Results

Results-focused creative marketer—I provide strategic brand building collaboration as Real Estate Nation’s Marketing Director.

From my hands-on advertising background, I can distinguish the fine points of each listing’s goals and put valuable contribution into incorporating marketing, digital communications and online strategy to drive awareness—and promote the overall value of your home.

In working through projects from start to finish I enable solutions that drive sales. Results have shown in past works an increase in business sales, user engagement and brand following.

At the age of 15, I first started working in Real Estate—joining the RE/MAX RESULTS team and becoming a licensed REALTOR® seemed like a natural fit nearly 20 years later. Consider yourself taken care of, with this Real Estate Nation team and an agent that excels in digital marketing providing creative solutions to set your home apart, as it’s unique self.

In my spare time you can find me at my family’s Century Old Farm on the lake. I’m passionate about volunteering locally, mentoring young professionals, trying the newest restaurants and attending community events. After growing-up in Southern Minnesota and living in Minnetonka the past 10 years, I married a golfer in Los Cabos and currently own a home in Eden Prairie near Starling Lake.
