I was born and raised in Minot so I have “been around the blocks” in Minot, lol. My husband Mark and I raised our five sons, yes five, in Minot as we enjoyed our time growing up here, so why not do the same for our family, right?
My dad built homes, so my interest in housing was piqued at an early age. One of my jobs as a kid was picking up nails, I didn’t love that job, but I like to think it was a precursor to my love of homes in general. Becoming a realtor in 2008 was a super exciting time for me as now I could look at all the homes on the market, and finally find that perfect home for my clients! What a win-win!
I enjoy looking at all the different types of homes available, and try not to miss touring the Parade of Homes in larger towns in North Dakota to see what they are building, and the new innovations they are incorporating in their construction. Our boys remember from an early age what “tour of homes” meant.
The most important aspect for me as a realtor is really getting to know my clients. I take what happens in the home buying and selling process personally, so I want the absolute best for my clients-turned-friends in the process. My Christmas card list grows every year and I love it!
I am Brad Beeter. I was born in Minot, went to school in Sawyer, and have lived in Minot since 1989. I am married with 3 daughters. In the 25 years that I’ve been in real estate, I have been involved in many building and development projects. I am proud to be living and working in the Minot area for almost 50 years. I am well rounded in the needs and wants of all your real estate - from single family to multi-family to commercial real estate. In 2019, I was a part of starting Preferred Partners Real Estate, as I wanted to bring back high-end customer service with a mixture of great technology. I look forward to serving all of your real estate needs in the future.

I've been living in Minot since 2011, but my heart already belongs to this city. I was born and raised in Russia, where I got my first experience in selling real estate. It so happened that I fell in love with a Minot guy, then married him and now I can say that this city is the place I call home. A small town, quiet and peaceful - what could be better for the family?
The Russians have a proverb: "At home, even walls help." This means that at our house we feel more secure, the whole environment seems to work for us - even the walls are our allies. And I want to help you find such a place!
