Agent Details

Meet BJ

Licensed Broker & Head Rooster
When it comes to experience, BJ prescribes a very strict, “more is more” policy. Yes, he’s gained notoriety representing top-tier clients as a handpicked member of the nationally coveted, Compass Sports and Entertainment Division. But what you might not know, is that as a licensed Broker he has worn a multitude of hats – from REALTOR to property manager, to investor, leasing agent, developer, and landlord.
Cutting his teeth in the condo market in the mid-2000s, BJ made his first foray into real estate by working for a leading condo and commercial developer. While there, he was also able to start representing traditional buyers and sellers. His education was cultivated from the ground up – from knocking down buildings to handing buyers new keys. Every niche he mastered laid another stepping stone in his path to success. Whether representing traditional buyers and sellers, to developers building skyscrapers, orchestrating sales and leasing for a development and property management company, or developing his own apartment buildings, there’s no end to BJ’s experience.
It came as no surprise then when the results-driven REALTOR took the helm of his own brokerage in 2015, assembling a roster of top-tier agents who represented the best and brightest in the business. As a leading reputable local brokerage, he was lauded for its high-tech, luxury touch client care; with that, Roost merged with Compass, the #1 brokerage in the country, in 2021. 
Catering to buyers, sellers, and investors alike, Roost is renowned for revolutionizing the standard of care in Minneapolis. Powered by Compass’ tech-driven platform, modern luxury brand, and nationwide reach, BJ has found his niche working with high-profile clientele in the Sports and Entertainment Division. A former college athlete himself, he’s abundantly aware of the tight-lipped discretion that pro athletes, coaches, and Grammy award-winning producers require.
