About Jim Grandbois

Jim Grandbois has been a highly successful Realtor in the Minneapolis Lakes area since 2002. As a lifetime resident of the Minneapolis Lakes Area and Edina, Jim has unsurpassed insight and knowledge of the area. His professional team for marketing, staging and premier photography ensures each home shows in its very best light. In addition, Jims team of mortgage lenders, inspectors and title closers will make the path from sale to closing a smooth one.

Jim has been named a "Super Agent" by Minneapolis/St Paul magazine and Twin Cities Business Monthly for 15 years. A distinction based on past clients ratings and received by less than 5% of real estate agents in Minnesota. Jim enjoys a business built by referral only and prefers to work directly with a few clients at a time instead of the business model of "the more the better". Jim is dedicated to delivering world class service to each client and his growing list of satisfied clients attests to that. He is recognized as a strong negotiator with hundreds of successful closings.

Jim grew up in Edina and attended Edina High School and the University of Minnesota. He has resided in his Linden Hills home since 1981. He and his wife, Kathy, have 3 adult children and they all love spending time at their lake cabin in Wisconsin. He is a skilled furniture maker and an unskilled runner with a tally of 14 (slow) marathons under his belt. He enjoys travel, running, reading and daily walks around the lakes with his dog, Redford.
