Eric Wolff

Eric Wolff

Eric is a native to the Nevis-Park Rapids area. He graduated from Nevis High School and attended Itasca Community College and Bemidji State University. Eric worked in a family owned tackle shop in his youth, did carpentry and home construction, then headed to Colorado just after graduation to work for an oil well service company. In 1996, Eric joined the real estate profession and worked for Coldwell Banker Clack and Dennis Real Estate for 14 years. In 2007, Eric and T.J. Simon formed The Eric Wolff team. In 2008 they were ranked 2nd in sales for teams in the state of MN. In 2010, Eric partnered with T.J. Simon and opened Wolff & Simon Real Estate.

Eric’s interests are as varied as his background. His talent for writing poetry, which has been published in many northern journals, his ability to paint /draw wildlife, and carve wood fish and decoys has earned him a name as an area outdoor artist of renown. He officiates varsity basketball games and is an avid fisherman. Eric’s knowledge of area lakes has provided his clients and customers an added bonus; not only is he aware of each lake’s quality, he also knows where the “good fishing spots” are located. When you put Eric Wolff to work as your Park Rapids area real estate guide, you will be sure to enjoy his enthusiasm for northern Minnesota outdoorsman lifestyle!

The fall of 2010 was a very exciting time for Eric when he married Tara (Troge) Wolff. They have made their home in Nevis in a log house that Eric and his Dad built.

Eric is blessed with a “can do” attitude and a keen sense of humor, and as you’ve probably already guessed, he really enjoys working with people. Eric has a true “team spirit”. Give Eric your real estate “want list” today. He loves his work, is always available, and is ready to go to work for you!

Upon completion of college and graduation in 2002, T.J. managed his 2nd generation family construction business. His interest in Real Estate went hand in hand with construction, and in 2004 T.J. started his real estate career with Coldwell Banker Clack and Dennis Real Estate.

In 2008, Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation recognized T J and his business partner as being the “Number 2 sales team in the State of Minnesota”.

Fred Kyllonen

Fred Kyllonen

Fred’s father was from Upper Michigan and his mom was from Wisconsin, but when they married they settled in Crystal, MN, which was where Fred and his sister grew up. Fred graduated from Armstrong Senior High in 1971. He received a degree in auto mechanics from Dunwoody Technical College in 1974.

When Fred married Edith Bohjanen, a native of Menahga, he had found a wife who was also 100% Finnish, the perfect matched pair. They purchased an 80-acre parcel of woods west of Menahga, and in true Finnish pioneer spirit, proceeded to build a home from “scratch”. They cut native timber from their own land, milled it at a nearby relative’s sawmill, and did all the carpentry work themselves.

They are still happily residing on their original “homestead”. Fred’s wife “Edie” graduated from Bemidji State University with a degree in elementary education. She works for Mahube in Park Rapids. Their son, Clint, is a master electrician for Zenergy and West Central Telephone in Sebeka. Their daughter, Jane, is a graduate from UMD and U of M with a master’s degree as an E.S.L. Teacher. Their children have blessed them with five grandkids. In 1994 Fred left the auto repair business and started his career as an associate with Coldwell Banker Clack & Dennis Real Estate. He is a graduate of the Realtor’s Institute (G.R.I.) and has been a multi-million dollar sales producer since 1995. In the spring of 2010 Fred joined Wolff & Simon Real Estate.

Fred’s idea of a good time is spent fishing, both winter and summer, and hunting ducks and deer in the fall. Another pursuit he really enjoys is splitting the firewood for the stove and the sauna. If you were to ask for his opinion on the prettiest scenery in Northern Minnesota he would be happy to tell you “there is no place prettier than the miles and miles of rolling hills surrounding Wolf Lake in the fall”. This is his favorite place to just “walk in the woods”.

If you’re looking for a farm to raise your family on, a choice hunting parcel, or the finest in lakeshore, city or country homes, Fred Kyllonen is ready to help you “comb those hills” without getting lost. Just pick up the phone and give him a call.

In addition to spending time with his family, Steve also enjoys fishing, gardening, and reading. He is also into raising chickens for eggs and has all of the equipment to raise bees and extract honey again in the future.
