About Me
Lara Burnside, Licensed Realtor with LakePlace.com
"I believe clients deserve an agent willing to go the extra mile...The home should be in top showing condition (deep cleaning done, staging  if necessary, etc.). High-quality photographs should be taken and a professional-quality description written to attract those buyers who would be most interested in what the place has to offer. Then, the property should be marketed massively online. All of these services are complimentary to my clients. You see, my goal isn't to simply get a listing...I want to get that listing SOLD."

Hi, I'm Lara...Thanks for stopping by! I'm a licensed Realtor working with LakePlace.com - Lakeshore and More, serving the Minnesota counties of Becker, Otter Tail, and Mahnomen. I'm Minnesota born and raised, and have spent the last 18 years residing in the town of Detroit Lakes, which is the town my husband grew up in and only about a 40 minute drive from where I was raised. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to one grandson. 

I seriously enjoy helping others. I pride myself on being proactive and super-responsive to my clients. Ever come across a Realtor who didn't return your phone call? That's not going to happen when you call me. 

So if you have any type of real estate-related question or are considering buying or selling, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to answer your questions and discuss what it is you're wanting to accomplish!
If You Are a Seller:
If You Are a Buyer:
  •  I will give you all the info you need to decide on the very best list price for your property, depending on your goals and timeline to sell. 
  •  I hire professional photographers to take pictures of my clients' homes so that they stand out and get noticed online. I can also make sure the home is deep-cleaned and staged to look its best.  
  •  I write professional-quality descriptions using keywords people are searching for.
  •  I invest my own money into target marketing to the ideal buyers who will  be most interested in what a client's home has to offer.  My goal is to not only get a home listed but to get it SOLD!
  •  I know how to use social media to get maximum exposure for clients' properties. And if a client has a lake property to sell, it exposure will be maximized as the listing will be featured on my company's website, LakePlace.com, the # 1 most-visited lake property site in the entire Midwest. 
  •  I go the extra mile by researching properties and providing information my buyer clients may not be able to access on their own.
  • I devote many hours each week scouring through properties and looking for good deals for buyers.
  •  I keep a close eye on the MLS daily hot sheet, and notify buyers of any listings that fit their desired criteria that have either just hit the market or have had a price reduction. 
  •  I make myself personally available to take clients' phone calls at any time of the day or night. I guarantee you that no client of mine will ever tell you that I wasn't easy to reach.
  •  I will show clients as many properties as necessary until they find the one they feel completely comfortable in making an offer on. And when they are ready to take action, I will act promptly according to their wishes.  Trust me...I work fast!
  •   And last but not least, I treat both buyer and seller clients with dignity and respect, providing them personal,  competent service with a smile! 🙂
