Collin Katainen


As a licensed REALTOR in Minnesota, I have completed the highest standards of conduct and ethics training. I am a member of the St. Paul Area Association of Realtors (SPAAR), Minnesota Association of Realtors (MNAR), and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). While working as a full-time real estate agent, I am also a High School Teacher and Principal at Yeshiva of Minneapolis in the St. Louis Park school district, serving grades 9-12.

With over 13 years working in real estate and education, I bring a wide array of experiences and knowledge to ensure your real estate goals succeed. When it comes to getting help with your real estate needs, hiring a Realtor that you can trust and rely on is essential.

Selling one of your most valuable assets is a big decision, marketing an investment such as yours requires far more than adding a listing to the internet, and sticking a sign on the lawn. My years of experience as a former home furnishings business owner and interior designer help you explore ways to add value in the listing of your home. All of this, compiled with my philosophy of; "Price Correctly, Market Effectively," and my belief that if you're willing to work hard and expect good things to happen, they will.

My goal is to make your experiences with a licensed Realtor a pleasant, exciting, and stress-free venture. Please give me a call or text; visit my website, and if you are interested in obtaining a current market valuation of your home, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss market trends and your real estate goals.

Thank you,

""Collin was incredible throughout my homebuying experience. As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what was involved with buying a home, but he walked me through every step of the process and made it both comfortable and fun. He was incredibly responsive to my input and found me a home that I absolutely love for far below market price. He has my highest recommendation!""

""Very professional. Very good communication. Also patient, helpful and knowledgeable. A+ all around. Very quick and easy. Even during a pandemic! Sold in 3 days for over asking price. Thank you Collin! Very glad I had you on my team.""

"“Collin is the person you want to hire as your realtor. He helped me purchase my first home when I had no idea of how the process worked. At first, we spoke about the areas I was interested in and my budget. He then emailed me an array of properties that perfectly fit my needs. He never went above my price range, was super quick in allowing me to look at houses, and helped me in the negotiation process. The entire process could not have gone more smoothly. I have referred him to both family and friends...numerous times.“ "

  -Sarah M., Client

"“I would recommend Collin to anybody looking for homes in the twin cities area, as he demonstrated a thorough understanding of the area, is both professional and personable, but most importantly possesses a keen eye for value. Due to his understanding of the home-buying process I was able to save money during a time when most people are bidding up for homes! This is a man you want on your side when considering purchasing your home.” "

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
