New Year, New Vision, Still The American Way

With the new year upon us, we reflect on the amazing success our company achieved in 2016. Here at American Way Realty we will always work tirelessly to support our clients through their entire real estate transaction. From first homes to forever homes, we are there every step of the way.

Our continued success has lead us to share with you, some big, exciting news. Starting January 1, 2017, we’re shaking things up a bit at American Way. It is our intent to continue to provide our clients with the same outstanding service they’ve come to expect but with enhanced and expanded service offerings while remaining a leader in the Greater Mankato real estate market.

What does all of this mean?

American Way Realty is a boutique-style agency that is small by design, but BIG in production. Our company is a real estate powerhouse and with our success, comes the need for a bit of restructuring. The biggest transformation for American Way in 2017 is the introduction of our top agent, Angie VanEman-Riley, in her new role as Co-Owner/Team Leader. In this leadership position Angie will work alongside her mentor, Karla VanEman, as well as with the entire American Way Team to enhance our one-of-a-kind real estate experience. Our dedication to our clients remains paramount. By refocusing our mission as a team effort, our clients will have access to an unprecedented amount of local real estate expertise, innovative marketing strategies, and a plethora of American Way exclusive benefits.
Is Karla Retiring?!
Absolutely not! Karla is the foundation of American Way Realty. It is her vision, incredible work ethic, business know-how, and unmatched real estate experience that has made this company the success it is today. This new vision is a continuation of the incredible example Karla has set for each of us and she is absolutely not going anywhere. 🙂

We would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your support, your kindness, and your loyalty. Our success is impossible without our wonderful clients. Without further ado, we would like to introduce the ‘new’ American Way Realty- here is our team!
Karla Van Eman, Co-Owner/Broker: Does she even need an introduction?! Our fearless leader, mentor and real estate staple in the Mankato community for over 40 years. Karla is the reason this is all possible and truly laid the foundation for all of us. Consistently the top Realtor in town, with Karla at the helm, anything is possible!

Angie VanEman-Riley, Co-Owner/Team Leader: Angie is a selling machine and has singlehandedly made her signature #boom a mainstay in the Greater Mankato market. For the last three years, Angie has closed over 100 transactions each year, with over 150 in 2016 alone. Voted Mankato’s Best Realtor in 2015 and 2016, and nationally recognized as a top agent, Angie dedicates herself to complete customer satisfaction. Straightforward, no nonsense, she gets the job done!

Cheryl Krengel, Realtor: If its real estate related, she has probably done it. And done it well. With experience in commercial, investment, leasing and residential real estate she has been in the real estate business since 1997 and provides a wealth of knowledge.

Zac Murra, Realtor: Although he is “the new guy” to AWR he knows his stuff, is dedicated to his clients, and is a great resource for investment properties as he personally owns several rental properties. He also comes from a family with ties to the real estate industry. Zac is reliable, smart, and hard working with a very bright future ahead!

Linda Roth, Realtor: Linda has been in the industry for over 24 years, knows the market well and is a Ninja Agent — which not many can say! Linda is dedicated to client satisfaction and ensuring a smooth real estate transaction.

Laura Keough, Director of Marketing: We are so happy to have her on our team! Laura brings with her 6 years of real estate experience in Mankato as well as experience working for a large real estate company in Las Vegas. Laura’s graphic design/marketing background allows us to offer in-house marketing and advertising for each of our clients. She also handles our promotions, social media, and website content to make sure each of our listings stand out among the rest.

Sally Comfort, Client Care Manager: It’s all about the details and she is phenomenal at it. Not only does she ensure everything is handled from contracts, to inspections, to appraisals, to closing- she keeps our team running like the well-oiled machine it should.

We have also just brought on an exclusive photographer, videographer and graphic designer to offer even more “sparkle” for our clients.

From all of us at American Way Realty, we wish you a Happy New Year and look forward to BIG things in 2017!
