Real Estate Salesperson
A little about me
As a real estate agent, Grant brings more than 15 years of working in patient care and advocacy to this role, which means he has a genuine commitment to ensuring his clients feel well cared for and looked after throughout the entire experience with The Korby Home Team. He is focused on being a reliable, thoughtful, and candid partner to all his clients.
Grant graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa. Shortly after, he became licensed in Radiology and worked in medical imaging for many years before transitioning to a role selling imaging coils to hospital systems across the US. Like many people during the pandemic, Grant knew he wanted a change-up in his career. After buying and remodeling his current home in 2020 with his wife, he realized that he still wanted to help people, but in a completely different way: he wanted to help others experience the joy of finding their dream homes. So he made the shift to real estate in 2021.
After playing football and wrestling through college, Grant found a new passion when he was introduced to strongman and started competing in 2013. The self-proclaimed “Minnesota’s Strongest Realtor” (where you can follow him on Instagram) doesn’t compete anymore but still frequently meets up with his fellow strongman friends to remind them that his “old man strength” is still there.
Grant grew up in Osage, Iowa and currently lives in Roseville with his wife Cecilia and their two dogs, Archie and Winnie. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, camping, boating, hiking – and basically any adventure his wife wants to take him on. Be sure to ask him about Marvel or DC comics or Star Wars – that’s where you’ll see his inner geek shine.
Our clients are awesome
and here is what they are saying
“Shawn and his team do amazing work. My wife and I are extremely happy having him as our realtor. He had our house on the market within 48 hours of meeting and sold our house quickly and efficiently! Look no further for a realtor, because this is the guy you want on your team!”
“When I first met Shannon, I wasn’t 100% sure I was ready to sell my house. She took the time to talk to me and learn my fears and concerns. She did not push me. In fact, I didn’t sign the listing paperwork until almost a year later. Shannon stayed in touch, in a kind and friendly manner, never pushing or urging me to sell.
When I called her to say “I’m ready”, we set a time to meet and talk about the process, timelines and expectations. She assured me that I was “the boss” and that she and her team would work at a pace I set. She also assured me that I would not be doing this alone. (As a single lady in my 70s, I was unsure if I was ready to do this alone.) I was never alone – there were resources provided through every step of the sale. I was always informed and knew exactly what to expect and when to expect it.
The process, although bittersweet, was efficient and effective. To this day, I remain friends with Shannon and some of the folks I met during the sale of my home. I highly recommend Shannon and the Korby Home Team if you are considering selling your property.”
“Shannon was worth her weight in gold when I wanted to sell my family home and downsize She and Keller had access to excellent people to stage and photograph my property. She recommended a life-saving agency to pack up all of my belongings and a wonderful electrician to do work at my new property. Shannon's support made my sale and my move as pain-free as such a life-changing process can be.”
“We worked with the Korby Home Team when we sold our townhome in 2019. Travis was so great to work with - professional, knowledgeable and very responsive to any questions we had throughout the entire process. I can honestly say our experience with the Korby Home Team was super smooth and we really felt like we were in good hands. Would definitely use them again!”
“Had the pleasure of working with Matt Steiner in July when I bought my first condo. I was terrified, I was a first time homebuyer, and had no clue what I was doing. Matt made the process so smooth and easy! He was so kind and quick to calm my worries and answer my questions. I now consider him a dear friend and am very grateful to have chosen him and the Korby team to work with.”
“I'm convinced Scott Hangge is the best real estate agent in the Twin Cities area. We ran into many hurdles when trying to close on a house. our banker said many real estate agents would have given up on the deal. Scott was diligent, persistent, and made miracles work to ensure that we ended up with the house.
If you do not give Scott a call you are making a mistake! Call him now!”
“Scott was extremely dependable when helping my elderly parents sell their home. He would visit them or call them by phone at least once a week to make sure they were ok. If they needed anything, he would help them without hesitation. He advised and guided them in the process. We really appreciate Scott and his dedication to his clients. I have never met a realtor who truly cares about his clients and goes out of the way to help make the selling of a home a peaceful and positive transition. If we ever moved back to MN, we would call him without hesitation.”
“We were so impressed by Scott & the Korby team. They were there for us every step of the process. Scott answered all of our many questions, was incredibly responsive & a great support for us. We would recommend him to anyone buying & selling a home.”
“Berni was amazing! We enjoyed her helping us find our forever home. This is a crazy market and she was supportive of our family throughout the process. I would highly recommend Berni!”
“There are so many things we loved about working with Tracy, so I will have to name only a few. 🙂 We had an amazing experience with Tracy as a first time home buyer and Tracy is the realtor for you if you're looking for an individualized experience. We so grateful for Tracy's investment in our buying process. She pays close attention to our preferences, aesthetics, and needs. She really listened and got to know our family, reminding us of what we were willing to be flexible on in terms of amenities and what we felt firm in our wants and needs. We never, ever felt like we were "talked into" something! We were buying during a seller's market, which can be tricky for everyone! She skillfully offered a balance of professional advice with our desire "dream big," gently guiding us through our first time buying experience that balanced our goals with current market offerings. She was a fantastic sounding board for us, helping us think through decisions that would help our offers stand out. Tracy always offered options and opportunities and let us our interests lead the home search process.
Tracy is also well connected, very knowledgeable about home improvements, and was able to help us understand what a particular repairs would entail. She offered recommended contractors/plumbers/electrictians etc in her trusted network and was able to (ballpark) what that any particular improvement would cost in terms of time, energy, and money. This deep knowledge was very helpful for us as weighed the pros and cons of each house we viewed. We always felt comfortable to ask, "Tracy, what do you think?" and trusted her perspective on significant issues that arose during the home buying process.
Tracy went to bat for us each and every time we asked for a repair or improvement to the house we agreed to purchase. Her efforts and dedication meant that we ended up with a move in ready home with repairs we were comfortable making over time. We heartily recommend Tracy and are so glad we worked with her!”
“Scott is an amazing realtor!! He was always there for us when we had questions and he was quick to schedule showings. His knowledge and expertise was second to none in this competitive market. He is a great negotiator and he was always willing to educate us on different things to look for in a house. We highly recommend Scott if you are looking for a realtor, you will not be disappointed!!”
“From start to finish, I had no doubts that Scott had our best interests in mind. His advice was always spot on, he was kind and attentive, and was always ready to answer my questions. He kept us updated, even if there was little to report, which I loved because I'm an expert worry wart.”
“It was a pleasure working with Berni and her team. From start to finish, they made the process simple and at each step they kept me appraised of what to expect. I recommend her enthusiastically and without reservation!”
“Madeline is a knowledgable realtor who helped us find our dream home! She is an excellent communicator and very helpful throughout the process. You can’t go wrong with choosing her as your realtor!”
“Madeline was outstanding to work with, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! She made me feel at ease and comfortable at each showing. As first time homebuyers, we really appreciated her thoughtful and thorough explanations throughout the whole process. Madeline also negotiated a ton for us to get the price point that was ideal for us, and didn't settle! I am so appreciative of her expertise and quick responsiveness. She is trustworthy and fun- I looked forward to seeing her at every house visit! HIGHLY recommend!”
“Berni was SO incredibly helpful and knowledgeable of the area! We moved from out of state and Berni spent a lot of time educating us on the areas and ultimately pointing us towards the PERFECT home for us!”
“I am so thankful that my wife and I had the opportunity to work with Scott Hangge. It was our first time buying a home, and he made the process smooth and simple, even in the midst of a hectic and competitive market.”
“Knowledgeable, trustworthy and personable are just a few of the many wonderful characteristics you will find in using Shannon Janco for a realtor. She helped guide us through the selling process and was always responsive to all of our questions along the way. She was wonderful to work with and recommend her to anyone for their buying and selling needs.”
“Tracy is an absolute gem, and made the process of selling my home and buying a new place in tandem a breeze. I cannot recommend Korby Home Team highly enough.
“Matt’s the best! He helped me find the perfect starter home that checked every box during a VERY competitive market. I couldn’t have done it without him!”
“I worked with Berni (and Shannon) in Shawn's office and was extremely impressed with their expertise and their interest in seeing that we got everything we wanted in our home purchase. They were very responsive to questions and requests and I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.”
“I was walked through each step so there were no surprises. My home was appraised, listed and sold faster than I could believe. They made it so easy! If I had a question I could call or email. Responses were fast and helpful.”
“Working with Matt and his team was a great experience. They made it easy to follow the process and make each step go smoothly. Matt is very friendly, knowledgeable and his expertise will put you at ease.”
“Colin was great to work with as we searched and purchased our first home. He was always very observant pointing out issues a house had and checking the age of things like the furnace. Besides knowing what to look for and avoid, Colin was very professional, always on time, responded quickly to questions, and did his best to schedule a showing ASAP. It was great working with Colin and when we look for our next house, Colin will be our first call!”
“Madeline was an excellent communicator and highly knowledgeable throughout the entire process of buying our first home. We felt confident that we were being taken care of. With each unknown we faced in the process of buying a house, Madeline was excellent at finding answers efficiently and thoroughly. Additionally, when it came down to multiple offers on our home, Madeline was a great negotiator and advocated our needs to the seller's agent. In addition to being professional, she makes the process fun. We can't recommend her enough!”
“This is the second home we have worked with the Korby team on. My wife and I highly recommend their services. Due to the pandemic we were unable to view the home and we had to really trust them to help us make the correct decision. Thanks again Korby!”
“I was very happy working with Matt and would absolutely work with him again for future buying or selling. This was my first home purchase and Matt was very patient and not pushy at all, but he also moved quickly when we saw properties that we really liked and he was straightforward and clear about what our options were, what we can use to negotiate, etc. It was easy to trust Matt throughout the process and we're using him as well to sell our current home - same experience, he's very responsive and works within our timeline giving us great guidance along the way.”
“Shannon helped me buy my first home and made it as easy as buying a first home could be! She was attentive to what I was looking for and also knew what I didnt want while staying realistic and honest about locations and budgets. She was very supportive, helpful, and able to have fun through the process. I never felt pressured to go to certain houses or to buy, and she navigated the fast paced market for me. I felt like she was always available and responsive if I had any questions, and it was so nice to close and have the same level of excitement reciprocated by her at the end of it all!”
“Scott (and the Korby Home Team) was outstanding in the way he handled the sale of our home. we can't say enough about the thoroughness and professionalism he showed us. He was always giving us updates along the way in the whole process. He made the sale of our home less stressful in an already stressful time.”
“The whole Korby Team is great. Very responsive, knowledgeable, and all around nice folks. Tracy was great to work with in a challenging seller's market and was able to act quickly on offers and negotiations.”
