Meet The Team

Lindsay Jones

Growing up, Lindsay was the kid playing outside, swimming, fishing, camping, building forts, hunting at her family’s shack, taking care of her many pets, and picking vegetables from the garden. She studied Social Work at Minnesota State University in Moorhead. After college she returned to International Falls and is raising three daughters.

Lindsay started her career in Real Estate in 2018. With a family of contractors, tradesmen, and entrepreneurs Real Estate was a natural fit that allows her love of craftsmanship and construction along with the history that goes with it to be part of her daily life.

As a third generation native of International Falls, Lindsay understands the values of the people that call our beautiful northland home. Lindsay’s knowledge of real estate, combined with her down-to-earth, honest, yet spirited demeanor, will make you feel confident you are in good hands throughout your real estate transaction and you will definitely have fun! So, whether you are looking to downsize, find a place to open that business you have been planning, or are looking for your lake home, making your real estate dreams come true is Lindsay’s pleasure and purpose!
