I have a loving husband and three lovely daughters. We love traveling and hiking. We are very involved with our church. I also love to read and sing! I hope to make your experience memorable for all the right reasons! I also have a degree in social work and a minor in Spanish. I am still conversationally fluent in Spanish and love working with all cultures.

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

Trisha Vierzba

Realtor, Lead Buyers Specialist


I am The Paul Ekstom Teams Lead Buyers Specialist, my passion lies in serving my customers to the fullest. I have been in several customer service roles throughout my life, from convenience store clerk to working in emergency medical services. In these years I have honed my skills to be able to provide truly individualized service and exceptional care. My favorite part of being in real-estate is watching a client’s face light up when they find “the One”!! I have two young children and share an auto repair business with my husband. I am a lifelong resident of Minnesota and I truly enjoy what this state has to offer. I also participate in competitive BMX racing and travel throughout the country chasing the wins. I know what it takes to get the job done and enjoy getting it done right while always having a smile to share.
