About Our Team:
When creating our team, we set out to offer clients a new level of professionalism, providing the most informative, dedicated service in the industry. Nate and Jill Gerard both come to real estate from successful 20-year track records in the fields of executive level business-to-business sales and strategic marketing for clients ranging from small boutique brands to Fortune 100 companies. The higher levels of analysis, marketing and communication skills we offer are real advantages to our clients.
Because of our backgrounds, we see things through the lens of a business person. We keep abreast of key trends and continually analyze the marketplace. We know how to leverage the most current advances in technology and provide insightful market data to inform our client's decision making process.
But you will also have a team that understands how important your real estate transaction is to you. Because just as important as the business side, so is the human side of our relationships with clients. We bring a unique balance of providing savvy, full-service real estate services without ever losing sight of the importance of personal attention to each of our clients.
I chose to found the Nate Gerard Real Estate Team, working with Keller Williams, after investing in real estate for a number of years. Jill and I have been married for 14 years and we have two wonderful elementary school age children. I served on the Board of Directors of Ascension Episcopal Church in Stillwater and am a hockey coach in the Stillwater Mites hockey program. I also serve on the Governmental Affairs Committee of the Saint Paul Area Association of Realtors as well as the ALC (Agent Leadership Council) in the Keller Williams Premier Woodbury office.
Who We Help:
There are three key areas of the industry we serve.
- Traditional buyers and sellers.
- Investors who buy, fix, and flip homes as well as rental investors.
- Homeowners that have had their homes listed previously, and were not successful in selling.
How We Help:
For traditional Buyers and Sellers we negotiate the best possible deal in the shortest amount of time while making the experience as easy for our clients as possible. Regular communication is paramount and we respond to client needs immediately. Our expertise identifying market trends, negotiating the sale, and bullet-proofing the closing process are top reasons clients choose us to help accomplish their goals.
Investors must be sure of the ability to make a return on investment either through immediate sale upon successful completion of the rehab process or through cash flow from their rentals. The analytical skills developed in the marketing world ensure profitability on flips and cash flow on rentals.
When a listing goes "Expired", it is often a very frustrating and disappointing situation for homeowners. We listen to their story and offer new ways to help them accomplish their goals. We have many documented, case studies where we have helped homeowners achieve success. We would be happy to offer you a no-obligation evaluation of your situation!

"Nate is an excellent communicator. He is detailed, responsive, and easy to work with, and I feel he has the client's interests in mind. In our case, he ensured we had all the information we needed to make the best decision about a property. He was unbiased, supportive and in the end, we were able to make the decision based on the facts. If you are looking for someone who will work professionally with you, regardless of whether you are buying or selling, then find Nate. He maintains the high level of professionalism, transparency, and constant communication you need when making the most informed real estate decisions."
"I can't even begin to tell you how much we love the house. Every time we walk in the house we love it more and more. We were just discussing the other day, how if it wasn't for your quick response and your expertise we may not have this beautiful home. I'm not sure if we told you but we had been working with another realtor, who couldn't get the search right for us, no matter how many times I reminded her of what we wanted. It was like she wanted to sell us whatever was available. You took the time at our first meeting to get to know us and you listened to what we said we wanted. Every house in the search you sent me was the right size and right number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Nate you are excellent in what you do and that made this process seamless. I also greatly appreciate you following up with us and letting us know that you would be available if there was anything else we needed assistance with. That means more that I can say."

"Nate's experience and knowledge of both the market and entire process – start to finish – along with his numerous contacts in the industry, provide him with a unique and valuable skill set I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell. He is honest, responsive, thorough, and very knowledgeable."
-John Swanson, Client
"My husband and I had a GREAT experience with Nate and his wife! It was our first home and everything went so smooth! We received a listing via email and called him right away. He got us in that same night, an offer was made that evening and 6 weeks later we moved in. They were there for us every step of the way such as meetings, phone calls, texts, and emails. He is very thoughtful and has checked on us to see how everything is going, We couldn't be happier with our experience."
-Jennifer & Dave Anderson, Client
"Nate Gerard is the Real Estate Professional I was very fortunate to have help me in my customized house search. He is todays level of real estate professional everyone hopes for. He was always available, very flexible, a top notch professional and results oriented person. He is the whole package: from helping in every step of paperwork to having an entire ensemble of loan, designer, construction and contractors to help you. Even after your sale, if you need resources, he's there. Nate will be the only Real Estate leader I will ever need to work with in the future. I highly recommend him. You will be impressed!"
-Deb Vogl, Client
"We can not say enough about how wonderful Nate Gerard was when we were looking for a house. He has a great knowledge of home values and the buying process. We are a couple that was trying to buy our first home before the birth or our child. We both have busy work schedules, which Nate was able to work around. Nate arranged showing after showing at times that were convenient for us. The house we bought was listed at 6:00 pm on a Monday night. Nate got us into the house by 8:00 pm that night. He had our offer in by 10:00 pm. There were multiple offers, and we are certain we would not have gotten this house with another agent. Nate truly cares about his clients, and he is a lot of fun to spend time with as you are looking for a house. We have already recommended Nate to a family member. We are very grateful we had Nate Gerard as our agent, and we highly recommend him."
-Will Ellis, Client
"Nate and Jill work great together as a team and I would highly recommend them! Nate helped us figure out creative ways to be able to not only sell our townhouse which was underwater, but also purchase our dream home. He has been in the industry long enough to have endless knowledge of what truly works and what will have the best results for you. Nate knows how to analyze the market and help you list your house at a reasonable price that it will sell at. We were fortunate to be able to sell our house after the first showing and were only on the market for FIVE days. This left us without a home to move into though. Nate and Jill couldn't have been kinder and worked any harder, going out three times in the next week to help find us our next home. Nate made suggestions and tips during house showings, which was invaluable as we don't do this every day! Thanks again for helping us sell our townhouse in record time and land the house of our dreams We love it!"
-Tanya and Eric Reimann, Client
"Nate and Jill assisted us with the listing and sale of our home while we were living in another state. They went above and beyond the call of duty by evaluating the potential value of our property, recommending and facilitating the necessary repairs and upgrades, listing and showing our home, and working closely with us and the buyer to finalize the sale. They kept us up to date with the process all along the way. We were most impressed with the individualized attention they gave to our listing, their service orientation, and concierge quality care! We recommend Nate and Jill highly to meet your real estate needs!"
-Teri and Charles Kenney, Client
"If we could rate Nate & Jill 10 stars, we would; and we've never actually met them in person, but feel they are great friends to us!!! We moved to TX in March & had a terrible experience with another realtor and his buddy the contractor. We trusted them to do the work after we moved. We spent 30K for updates, & ended up firing them both. In August, we still had a home that was vacant and unsold. We tried to sell it ourselves; big mistake & nearly impossible long distance. We were so stressed, we began to question if we should ever have moved to begin with. We were miserable! Then out of the blue in Oct., Nate called us. He was so kind and helpful on the phone. He and Jill (who is also a realtor) performed miracles. They went out of their way and did so many things for us I can't begin to list; things I could never expect ANYONE to do. We felt helpless; our home, which represented part of our retirement, was sitting vacant 1200 miles away. We put our total trust in them. They had our h"

"If I had to use one word to describe Nate it would be kind, energetic, jovial, or patient.... let me emphasize patient. I lost count, but we walked through more than thirty houses with Nate over the course of several months before we were ready to buy. He often ended his time with us giving words of hope for the next time. Rather than ever trying to convince us that we should settle for something that was almost right, he remained convinced that the right house was out there even when we had our doubts. I can recommend not only Nate, but also the team he has gathered around him to help with closing and financial matters as professionals who had our best interest at heart every step of the way."
-Doug Steinke, Client
"Nate Gerard is more than a realtor. He is the consummate professional – knowledgeable, understanding, and detail oriented. And as someone who is not a native of MN, and actually lives abroad, Nate and his partner Jill earned my total confidence and trust. They were full partners in this process, ensuring that I was totally involved in my efforts to find, identify and purchase a home that met my needs, both personally and financially. They cared for my welfare and protected my interests. They were not only supportive but provided me with critical finanical information that gave me a total understanding of what was involved. They made a normally stressful process much much easier. A thousand words of thanks cannot express my sincere appreciation. Nate and Jill have become friends, who earned not only my trust but my deepest respect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nate Gerard."
-Dennis Bates, Client
"I was referred to Nate through a coworker, and I'll say he really lived up to his reputation! We were first-time homebuyers, and Nate did an amazing job walking us through every step, helping us make the right connections, and bringing an overall level of expertise that made the whole process almost effortless. I would not hesitate to refer Nate to a colleague or friend, and look forward to working with him again in the future! "
-Mark Giesen, Client
"We met Nate when we were looking for a "horse" property he had listed. He was very friendly and responsive so we used him for the purchase side rather than getting a seperate agent to represent us. Ran in to a few title issues but Nate worked with everyone to make them go away and we were able to close on time. Based on our experience, we listed our existing house for sale through Nate. It was a rather "unique" property but Nate did a great job of helping us stage the property and in his presentation of the property. Sold in about 3 months at about 95% of our asking price when the temperature was 25 below zero. Nate is a good guy and I highly recomend him. He is trurtworthy, honest, and knowledgable. Brian "
-Brian Lueth, Client
"Selling a house, particularly in today's real estate market, is complex at best. Due to circumstances in my life, I found myself in a situation where I had to sell my home. I wasn't sure of my options or best course of action. After meeting with Nate, he discussed with me many possibilities that I didn't know existed. Not only does Nate understand today's complex market – the traditional and non-traditional options available to home sellers/buyers – but he has the knowledge and professional network necessary to make those options a reality. He was an invaluable and trusted partner throughout the process of selling my home, as well as being the kind of person you want as a friend. Nate made the process stress free for me and delivered beyond my expectations. I will always be grateful for his help and count myself fortunate to have him on my side. I've worked with many realtors in the past and Nate is far and away the best I've encountered. I cannot recommend him more highly."
-Chris Murphy, Client
"My wife and I just finished purchasing our first home and worked exclusively with Nate Gerard. We were so thrilled to have come across such a great professional, but more importantly Nate is a great person. Nate's extensive knowledge of the marketplace, coupled with his ability to make you feel as though you are his only client make him the perfect match for any home buyer. We first contacted Nate on a Friday night with a laundry list of houses we wanted to see on very short notice as we were from out of state. Within 24 hours, he had 8-10 showings set up for us and spent his entire Sunday afternoon showing us around the area, while sharing with us his knowledge of the market place. Throughout the home buying process, his hard work and dedication to accomplishing our goal never faltered. Nate will always work with integrity and do what is best for his clients, and that is very commendable. Without a doubt, I would recommend Nate to all home buyers, seasoned and brand new. I hop"
-Trina and Drew Russ, Client
"If you could envision having a representative treat you precisely how you would want to be treated, then you should talk to Nate Gerard. A consummate professional, with the personality of somebody you would like to have as your neighbor. "
-Brad Struck, Client
"We just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for all your help in selling our home and finding and purchasing our town home. You made everything SO easy and smooth for us. From day one, you made it your goal to help us sell and find what we were looking for. We appreciated you constantly going out of your way to make sure we had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. No matter what the obstacle was, you found a way around it!! You always looked out for our best interest, and we greatly appreciate that. Anytime we talk with someone in need of buying or selling a house, we will DEFINITELY send them to you. "
-Barb and Larry Stepaniak, Client
"Nate is fantastic! He is honest, hardworking and just a delightful person. He knows the process for short sales, and everything he told me happened in the time frame he gave me. He took over the negotiations with the bank and when an appraisal came back higher than the agreed purchase price, worked with the bank to get a compromise that the buyers agreed to. I cannot recommend Nate highly enough. I refer to him as ‘Nate-the-best-realtor-in-the-world Gerard’. "
-Cindy Hyden, Client
"We were very happy to have Nate working with us through this process all the way through the close date and beyond. Selling and buying a home can be a challenge at any time - but Nate worked hard for us, listening to our needs and providing support through it all. We will call Nate again and recommend him to our friends and family."
-Brian and Gena Rees, Client
"I would highly recommend Nate to anyone who is selling or buying a house. I had the pleasure of working with Nate on both transactions. He is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and did a fabulous job pricing and marketing my house (I had calls for showings within a couple of hours of it going up). He did a great job negotiating the purchase of my new place to get a price that worked for me. Nate is everything you could hope for in a realtor. He is honest, hard working, smart, has great people skills, and goes the extra mile without being asked. Most importantly, he just wants to do the right thing by his clients and make sure they are happy. Thanks Nate!"
-Lynn Merrill, Client
"Nate is an awesome Realtor who values the relationship with his customers and gives their needs high prioritization. The results he delivered speak for themselves -- we received the first offer on our house in 4 days with a second, above-market offer that we accepted within 6 days. The next day, he helped us find the house of our dreams! Truly he met or exceeded every one of our expectations and made everything very EASY for us!"
