Leah is also an accomplished singer, marathoner, home stager, community volunteer, and serves on the Board of Trustees for the Minneapolis Area Realtors charitable Foundation.

Katie Reilly

Phone: 612-423-2721

Katie’s love of real estate started young. Early on, Katie’s mom, grandma and sister would drive around neighborhoods, admiring the homes up and down the blocks. Mom and grandma would point out features “ooh, look at the leaded windows on that Tudor” and “check out the Mansard roof on that house!” This time together with the women in her life proved to be the foundation for her future life in real estate. Now years later, Katie is driving around neighborhoods helping clients find their dream homes! Her knowledge and understanding of houses and the market, coupled with her excellent client care skills, provide her clients with an experienced, positive real estate partnership. As a part of the MSP Nest Team Katie loves working in a power group of women, who work hard for clients, guiding and supporting them to reach their real estate goals. Katie lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two teenagers, and one happy, fluffy poodle, Waffles.
