Edina Realty recently lost a close colleague, Brad Palecek, to a fight against cancer.  We are saddened by a life cut much too short and honored to have known Brad as a teammate, inspiration and friend.

Brad’s dedication to his clients and his unwavering commitment to providing the ultimate experience when buying and selling a home will continue.  Brad built an enduring model for success that his team – Michael Korby, Julie Glass-Yares, and their assistant Jessica Buelow – will maintain as they continue his legacy.  Having worked with Brad for 15 years, they have learned well the principles of dedication, commitment, and passion for serving you. In his honor, they look forward to meeting and working with you in 2018 and beyond. This truly is what Brad had wanted; his team will carry on the business that he so diligently built.

We wish you a happy and successful 2018. 

— Sharry Schmid, President - Edina Realty, Inc.
