The Team


Our Mission Statement:

Our philosophy is simple: clients come first. We pledge to be in constant communication with our clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job. We don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of our clients.

Rick Bateson, Your Real Estate Partner

My 35+ years in the real estate related industry includes everything from building and contracting to developing and realty. With all that experience in my past, I know the ins and outs of this industry better than just about anyone else. I am skilled and confident in providing valuable insight and identifying hidden conditions about any property. Not only will my knowledge of the market add value to your home buying or selling experience, but I am patient and determined to properly assist in the best manor that suits your specific needs. From our first meeting to the closing of your new home, finding your dream home becomes my number one priority. I have a track record of successfully guiding my clients through their real estate transactions and I’d welcome the opportunity to do the same for you.

Andrew Benson, Realtor 

As a native of Minnetonka, I have an unquestionable passion for the state of Minnesota and all the culture it brings. I attended Bemidji State University where I graduated with a business-finance degree as well as captained the men’s golf team. I enjoyed my time in northern Minnesota for school, but my heart lies here in the Twin Cities. Growing up playing hockey and golf, I love all the seasons and the changes that come with it. With my background in business and athletics I have a strong belief in working as a team while I provide the pool of knowledge to make for a smooth buying or selling
transaction. I treat my clients like family, which means I will selflessly work and never give up until
everyone is satisfied.
