As a recovering CPA (inactive) and property owner, Aaron brings a unique perspective to his clients, who often seek guidance on analyzing their real estate purchases through an investment lens.  Aaron has hands-on experience rehabilitating residential properties, managing Landlord projects for commercial development, leasing commercial space and syndicating real estate partnerships, all of which allows him to bring a breadth of knowledge to the table for his clients.  He takes great pride at the end of each transaction when he can look his client in the eye, shake their hand and know that they would be pleased to work with him again the next time they have a real estate need.

Prior to becoming a licensed Realtor and Broker, Aaron served as the Chief Financial Officer of a Minneapolis based, $250 million Private Equity Fund.  In 2007, Aaron earned a B.A. in Accounting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and in 2012, an MBA in Finance from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.  He has studied abroad in Florence, Italy and several cities in India.

Aaron is the broker of record for Gold Group Realty.  Outside of his career as a Real Estate professional, Aaron enjoys traveling and spending quality time with his daughters Jordyn & Maya, and wife Michelle.   His interest in real estate and development was sparked at a young age, when he acquired his first lego set.

Aaron is a member of Co-Star, MN (MN Commercial Association of Realtors), MAAR (Minneapolis Association of Realtors), and Northstar MLS.
