Cheri Sutch

Buyers Specialist

License Number: 40644854

I am proud to be part of the Paul Ekstrom Team at Realty One Group Choice in Andover. Bringing with me more than 20 years’ experience of construction business ownership, residential single family and town homes, flipping, buying and selling homes, getting my real estate license was an easy next step! Having moved over thirty times myself, I totally understand the aspects and challenges that people can face while making one of the most important decisions of home ownership and transition. People and relationships have always been a part of my career life. I spent thirteen years as a Youth Director and then the past six years dedicating myself the cause of youth homelessness. As a Director of Community Engagement and Giving for a local non-profit, I utilized my leadership & public speaking to help make a difference in the growth of a grass-roots organization. I’ve been so lucky to always have a career that doesn’t feel like work, it just feels like a part of who I am as a person. I love eating out, traveling, hiking, laughing and making memories with family and friends. Getting married and having my first grandson made 2018 the best year ever! Now on the “to do list” is a trip to visit my son and his wife in their new home in the Philippines.

Ella Yesipchuk

Buyer's Agent

License Number: 40642409

Being first generation in America, having immigrated from Ukraine, I have learned to work hard for everything I want out of life. At age 16, I got my first job and developed my drive for working and providing great customer service. As I got older I consistently worked 2 jobs and put myself through college. Prior to real estate, I worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years and have developed crucial skills such as leadership, consistent communication and going above and beyond your expectations. The harder I work, the more it drives me and the happier I am. Coming to America you always hear about the American Dream, and owning your own home is on top of that list. My goal is to personalize each experience of accomplishing that American Dream and help you through the process of finding a place that makes you feel like you have made it in life. Being multilingual in Russian, Ukranian and Moldovian helps me be able to help a wider range of people. So relax, and let me take the stress off of you and work hard for you to help you find your happy place.

Buyer's agent

License Number: 40436446

I got into real estate around the time my wife and I started talking about our first home. At the time I was working in the restaurant industry as a front of house manager. I was thinking about a career change and since we were starting to think about buying a home, I looked into getting my real estate license. I got licensed and my first closed transaction was the purchase of our first home. It was the proudest moment of my life. I learned the business through representing myself as a home buyer. I experienced the stresses and complexity of the home buying process as I was learning to be an agent. I still remember the feelings a home buyer goes through and I have made it my mission to reduce stress in every way possible and share in the joy of home ownership. The proudest moment of my life was buying my first home and I love helping my clients experience a similar feeling. It is the reason I am a real estate agent.

Bringing my experience from the printing industry and home remodeling has given me the tools of the trades and attention to details, the commitment to finish the job, as well as the dedication and integrity that you deserve, whether you're purchasing or selling a home. I will help fulfill your dreams!!!! Outside of Real Estate I enjoy spending time with my family, grandchildren and our 2 little doggies.

License Number: 20595524

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. It is my goal to provide you and your family with the highest level of service possible and to offer the latest in Real Estate technology. A little bit about me...I grew up in Western Wisconsin but no I am not a Packer fan. Our TV stations growing up were from the Twin Cities so I grew up a Vikes and Twins fan. To this day you won't find a more staunch Vikings, Wild and Twins fan than me! Away from my professional life I am enjoying entering the "Empty Nester" phase of my life with my beautiful wife Janelle of over 26 years. My daughters Amy and Jodi bless us with their presence every once in awhile when not at college or work. I love golf, boating and working out. My perfect day is 18 holes in the am, boating in the afternoon with Janelle and friends and ending out for dinner and drinks at Maynards on Lake Minnetonka! One of my biggest passions is giving back to the community by volunteering for HOPE 4 Youth. H4Y provides services for the homeless youth in Anoka County. I am on the board and Housing Committee Chair. We were successful in building a Transitional Housing Facility where we are able to get 12 youth off the streets and into a program that will enable them to become contributors to society. Hope Place opened 12/6/16. As for the boring, bragging stuff, I am honored to be recognized by The Mpls St Paul Magazine as a Super Real Estate Agent every year since 2012; I am one of the Top 100 Most Influential Realtors in MN by Real Estate Executive Magazine; I have been recognized by Real Trends Top 1000 Realtors nationwide since 2013. I also have been the #1 agent at Keller Williams Classic Realty since 2008 and am in the top 300 agents for Keller Williams Corporate (out of 172,000 agents). This passion drove me to purchase the 1st Realty ONE Group franchise in MN. ROG is the fastest growing and 5th largest Real Estate company in the US. We are so excited to unveil the new business model to our clients and family in MN. We moved into our new office May 2nd, 2018. So bottom line we know what to do to get your home sold fast for the right price. We also excel at communicating with our clients and under promising and over delivering. You will be very happy "Partnering" with myself and my amazing team of agents and assistants. You have my promise and my guarantee! Paul
