Meierhofer opens branch office in Paynesville

This article submitted by Linda Stelling on 9/22/99.

Kim Kruger and Mary Ann Schmidt, Paynesville, will offer area real estate services under Meierhofer Real Estate Agency, Richmond, at Cyrilla Beach Homes on east Highway 55.

Kruger and Schmidt have also joined the St. Cloud Area Association of Realtors. This association will allow them to offer a broad selection of property and services through the Multiple Listing Service and on the Internet.

"We are very excited about starting our new venture in real estate sales. Helping individuals with one of life's major decisions has long been a goal of ours. Whether it is buying or selling property, we would like to make the process as stress-free as possible," Schmidt said.

"The designation of realtor was important to us," Kruger added. "It really gives us an advantage over nonmembers of the St. Cloud Area Association of Realtors, because we can work more effectively with buyers and sellers using a collaborative effort and spirit."

"Working with nonmember agencies can be difficult. Agencies who use an uncooperative marketing practice do a disservice to clients. We are looking forward to working on an accommodating and cooperative basis for our clients, they said.

Art Lahr, broker for Meierhofer Real Estate Agency, believes having Schmidt and Kruger as realtors and a branch office in Paynesville will only bolster an already booming market in local property sales. "To add the Lake Koronis and Rice Lake areas to our Horseshoe Chain of Lakes makes for a premiere property marketing opportunity for our agency. Paynesville has a lot to offer, and through our affiliations and advanced marketing tools like the Multiple Listing Service and the Internet, we have more ways to showcase area properties."
