I am a designated USAA/ Affinity Realtor and welcome the opportunity to serve you! I hail from Minneapolis and grew up in Edina, MN. I am proud to be a 4th generation Realtor. My great- grandfather started a residential real estate company called Thorpe Brothers. They sold off the residential branch in the 80's and the commercial business remained. 

My mother, Mary Thorpe-Mease, and I were business partners for the past ten years and she has recently retired. I now have an assistant, Ken Colston, and colleague- who also is a USAA /Affinity Realtor.

I look forward to building relationships with my clients.
