Meet Cheryl Krengel: Your Mankato Real Estate Agent As a co-owner of a local family farming operation and a degree in accounting from Rasmussen Business College the combination of experience and education opened the door to a successful transition into my real estate career starting in 1997. I was hired by a local real estate developer/contractor. Starting out as administrative assistant of the general construction company, within one year I was promoted to Vice President and was in charge of hiring contractors, working with lenders for construction loans, and site development. Eventually this led into the design and architectural phase and overall project management of multi-family, single family residences and commercial projects, to include, banks, strip malls, casinos, and restaurants. In 2004 I became a licensed Realtor and Broker and placed my license with American Way Realty. Why I'm different: Leveraging my experience as a successful business owner, and running a large general construction company, I am known for outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, high tech marketing techniques, personal touches, and as a skilled negotiator with my clients best interests at heart, I believe strongly that it is not only my duty to represent my clients with the best of my ability, but also to educate them throughout every step of the process armed with top notch information and market insights, so that my clients make the best decisions possible. I am honest, sometimes telling clients things they might not want to hear, hard working and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry, having worked with top agents in the Mankato area. In My Free Time: I love to spend time on the lake with family, play and coach softball which I sponsor and for three years in a row American Way Realty is the #1 co-ed team for Adult Mankato softball leagues. My husband Harold and I live on Lake Washington and share six children ranging in age from 21-28, we are also blessed with two grandchildren Tucker and Bryndle, and another one coming in May of 2017. We are also members of Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato. Harold is a senior crop advisor for a local coop, we also raise black angus beef cattle on a farm in St Peter.
