Our Background

Caran and Steve-white balanceMy name is Steve Mollner and I have been a local resident of the Twin Cities area my entire life and have been active full-time in the real estate marketplace in this area since 1978.  I live in Woodbury, Minnesota with my wife Caran, who is also my real estate business and marketing manager.  Although Caran does not have a real estate license, she has also been in the real estate business for over 25 years and there is no one better to have behind the scenes making sure everything is getting done .  We have four children and three grandchildren.

We want to personally thank you for visiting our website and would like to invite you to consider utilizing our services to help you buy or sell your home.  Our areas of specialty include all of Washington County, Minnesota including the communities of Woodbury, Oakdale, Maplewood, Lake Elmo, Stillwater and Cottage Grove – however, we have worked with buyers and sellers in many other areas as well.  We don’t pretend to know everything there is to know outside of our service area – so if you are looking to buy or sell a home in a different area,  we are happy to help you find a knowledgeable agent who will be able to assist you.

I have been in the real estate business since 1978 and have obtained the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) and Shortsale & Foreclosure Resource (SFR) designations.   I believe that because of my previous experiences, and the time we have spent “refining” our sevices, one of the most important things we can offer to our clients is true “peace of mind”.  W pay attention to the details so that you don’t have to and because of this, the majority of our business comes in the way of referrals from our past clients.  Many of our past clients have become personal friends and our philosophy about our business is that we want to be your “family” realtor, much like your “family” doctor.


  • BUYING A HOME?  I have worked with both buyers and sellers in all of Washington County including sellers who are relocating to this area and those pursuing new construction.  I will take the time to listen to your needs and desires, and find your dream home not matter where it is located. Your total satisfaction is my number one priority.
  • SELLING A HOME?  I will get your home sold for top dollar and in a timely manner. My online and offline marketing programs will give you the edge you need to sell your home. I don’t want to just list your home, I want to sell it!
  • RELOCATING?   If you are moving to Washington County or any other area, I can assist you in collecting the information you need, and make your transition as smooth as possible. I have had extensive relocation experience and I am certified by most third party relocation companies. I have assisted numerous families from companies such as 3M, St. Paul Companies, Deluxe Check, Imation, State Farm Insurance and many more. I am familiar with the inner-workings of the relocation process and have conducted relocation consultations for a large midwest corporation. Having a real estate agent who understands the relocation process is crucial when contemplating this important decision.

We hope our website will help you make the important choice of who to trust with one of life’s largest decisions, and  we sincerely hope the decision ends with us!
