Lisa Boerum Bio

Hello, I am Lisa Boerum.
I am an executive assistant at
Keller Williams Premier Realty
in Stillwater, MN.
I live in White Bear Township, MN. You can also find me online.
I joined Ryan Bretzel in 2013 as his executive assistant. As his only employee, I have learned many aspects of the real estate industry from the ground up. I serve as the right hand for Ryan Bretzel, Inc and my responsibilities encompass the activities of four key roles: administrative manager, listing manager, transaction coordinator, and marketing director. I was drawn to this position because I enjoy all of the aspects of each of these four roles and the diversity that it offers.
This newly-formed position has involved a significant amount of system and process development. Two of my strengths are planning and organizing and I truly enjoy planning, developing, implementing, and organizing new systems and processes and tweaking them until they are as efficient and cost effective as possible.
Prior to joining the world of real estate, I owned and managed several businesses for many years. I was Director and Business Owner at Awesome Beginnings Childcare, in Hugo, MN, during the majority of those years. This satisfied two of my deepest passions: working with children and early childhood education.
More recently, I owned Clean Living Market and Awesome Beginnings 4 Children. I created and managed an ecommerce store and blog, AwesomeBeginnings4Children.com, that offered natural products to expectant and new parents. I also retailed new and used items on eBay, Amazon, and various other selling venues.
For many years, I had the opportunity to wear many hats and, as a result, I have become very resourceful. I have a strong student mentality and have acquired a very diverse set of skills. I excel in planning, goal-setting, and organizational skills. I am very passionate about providing excellent client/customer service which resulted in client retention and a word-of-mouth waiting list for my child care business and 100% positive feedback with over 1700 customer testimonials on one of my selling venues. I take client/customer satisfaction very seriously!

I created this WordPress blog in the Spring of 2013. The original purpose of this blog was for ongoing blog assignments for the social media marketing class that I was taking. Our assignments were to create weekly S.M.A.R.T. objectives and then to blog about our experiences.
