Meet David Vanneste

I am David Vanneste. I have been a vital part of Edina Realty, Inc for the past 30 years and have thoroughly enjoyed working with one of the top real estate brokerage firms in the country! I get excited about real estate - and with my extensive real estate knowledge, unsurpassed marketing plan, powerful negotiation skills, and my expertise in the ever-changing housing market - my experience benefits our clients by getting the best price for their home, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of hassle.

I have created a team of full-time licensed agents and experienced support staff who enjoy working with buyers, sellers & investors alike. We're pros at navigating tricky transactions involving relocation clients, 1031 Exchanges, rental properties (for sale or lease) and vacant property situations. Our goal is to negotiate the top dollar for your home's sale and/or to assist you in locating your dream home, and we are committed to exceeding your expectations!

I love serving clients in the NE suburbs of the Twin Cities - where I've lived my entire life - but enjoy working with clients from all corners of Minnesota. My passion is in assisting clients with selling their home and my specialty is in lakeshore property sales. (Because nothing compares to living the lakeshore lifestyle!)  When I'm not at work I have 5 daughters and the grandkids that keep me pretty busy - but if I ever get a moment to myself I enjoy golfing, boating and traveling.
