Chanhassen Real Estate – Northstar MLS MN Member
Straddling the Carver and Hennepin County lines, Chanhassen is an upscale, relaxed commuter city, full of lakes and beautiful homes. Removed from the hubbub of city life, it remains within reasonable commuting range. The city is a popular haven for white-collar families. Several lakes are within the city limits, offering lakefront living and recreational activities, from fishing and boating to relaxing on the beach in two city parks.
Jessica Koser – Born and raised in sunny south Florida, Jessica never thought she would call the frozen tundra that is Minnesota home…but after accepting a position with the American Cancer Society in 2015 she made the big move here. Jessica is very outspoken, direct, unapologetically herself, and willing to fight for what she wants and what is right! Jessica loves the ocean and beach and it’s probably what she misses most about home! Jessica graduated cum laude from the University of Miami with a double major in public relations and sociology. She has worked in development at several nonprofits for the last 15 years, which really helped prepare her well when she transitioned into the adventures of real estate. Jessica loves relationship building most and truly enjoys finding (or selling) the perfect home! Since moving to Minnesota she bought her first home in Brooklyn Park, that her and her husband completely remodeled themselves (2019), married her best friend Ben on a beach in Florida (2020) and just recently had her first (and last) baby- a son named Meyer (2022). They love to travel more than anything and have been to a different continent each year. When not traveling they love being outside at their pool, checking out the local breweries and restaurants, getting together with friends and family or cheering on the Minnesota Vikings!!

Ample shopping opportunities are easily accessed, and nearby cities offer additional options. The famous Chanhassen Dinner Theater is a popular venue. The proximity of Lake Minnetonka is another plus. Lake Minnewashta offers all lake activities right in the city. The city was named by Money magazine in 2009 as the second best city to live in the United States.
