Get to Know Claire Killen

As a native of Ireland, I moved to the Twin Cities in 1999 after living through my worst winter of 1996 in Minnesota.  Why? (I hear you ask!) Well...I really enjoyed the people I met and the genuine feeling of belonging.  I decided after working with a large construction company that I wanted to get further into a Real Estate career.  I joined a small commercial Real Estate company then decided that I wanted to run my own business...and here I am now with my own Real Estate Company - Emerald Real Estate!

As my clientelle will testify, I am about developing relationships, hearing what is important and doing the best job possible to find, offer, negotiate and make sure the transaction closes on time at the best price and terms...and have fun along the way.  People often say that moving it is one of the most stressful times of your life, well I am here to ensure that it goes as painfree as possible.   

I specialise in Tenant Representation in the commercial aspect of Real Estate also.  If your office is moving or your business needs to increase in size or you need to expand into other market locations...I am your woman!  I enjoy the business element to commercial where it comes down to numbers and negotiating with a male dominated environment.  Let's just say all my commercial clients have gotten cracking deals with great concessions :)

So, why would you want to work with me?  Great question when there are so many people out there to choose from.  Well I really do enjoy what I do, I have great energy and I am a good read of people.  I use this to my advantage in all aspects of the transaction.  I make the transaction fun, but professional.  I stay in touch and value the relationship I have with you.  I am perceptive and follow my instincts at all times.  Going above and beyond is a part of my full service contract with you...and I think you would enjoy working with me & hearing about different global perspectives that I bring to the mix.  At least it is worth a conversation to decide don't you think?!


I work with you.  What are you looking for?  I am able to help first time home buyers determine what they are looking for showing different styles, types, locations to make sure you have considered all the options.  I love the call from first time buyers when they are ready to move...I am available to list that first home and find the move up house.  House too big now the children have moved on?  I can take care of this time of your life too.

Tenant Representation is my other area of expertise.  You may have to get space for your business...I can assist you to find the space and negotiate the lease with the landlord.  


My business is finding out what is important to you and making sure we find it and exceed what you had imagined it to be!
