Cara Quinn

My path to real estate began in Rome, Italy, where I lived and worked for nearly a decade. Residing in one of the world’s most beautiful and ancient cities left me with a deep appreciation of design, style and craftsmanship.

America called, and my husband and I moved to Minneapolis where we raised our family and I led a rewarding career in education leadership. We always had one home improvement project or another underway, and after remodeling our own home from top to bottom we couldn’t resist starting the process all over with an investment property. I love the hunt for the perfect home, and the excitement of a sale! The transition to a career in real estate was a natural one.

I approach my work as a real estate agent with passion, commitment and integrity. I want my clients to know that they have an advocate in their corner paying attention to every detail, from the first phone call to closing. Whether it’s your first home purchase or you are empty-nesters ready to downsize, I pride myself in ensuring that each client has a smooth and successful real estate transaction.

I live with my family in the Tangletown neighborhood of Minneapolis. I enjoy running and biking around the lakes and on the parkways, walking across the Stone Arch Bridge at sunset, and checking out the local food scene. When the weather is warm, I can sometimes be spotted in my little Fiat 500 convertible with our Great Dane in the backseat, his head sticking out over the top.
