Luke is an experience and dedicated real estate broker with Abarim Realty. Since starting real estate in 2001, he has quickly developed a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable and trustworthy real estate brokers in Minnesota. He specializes in investment properties, bank foreclosures and assisting fellow military veterans.
Luke’s favorite part of being a real estate broker is assisting clients with adding real estate properties to their investment portfolios and retirement planning, because it allows him to apply his knowledge in finance, investing and accounting. Seeing clients become financially independent with just a few properties brings tremendous satisfaction.
Luke has been praised by both clients and colleagues for his honesty, integrity, market knowledge and excellent customer service. One happy homebuyer raved “Solid work, Luke. Great job on the negotiations. Your knowledge and experience have really paid off for me.”
Despite his busy real estate career Luke makes time to be involved with family and community organizations. He is a member of the Disabled American Veterans and the American Legion and has served as the Director of Resources for Faith Sound, Inc, a religious non-profit. He has also volunteered as coach for his children’s soccer, baseball and hockey teams.
Luke earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point and his Master of Business Administration degree in Finance and Accounting from Florida Institute of Technology. He graduated near the top of his class at both institutions and was selected to the Phi Kappa Phi national honor society for his outstanding performance.
After his military career flying airplanes for the U.S. Army’s Military Intelligence branch was cut short by service-connected injuries, Luke moved to be near family in Minnesota. He was licensed as a Minnesota real estate agent in 2001 and real estate broker in 2005 and has completed numerous specialized training in the real estate field to include courses by the Graduate Realtor Institute, Certified Commercial Investment Institute, and Realtor Land Institute.
Luke lives with his wife, three children, dog and two rabbits on 18 wooded acres near Lake Zumbro, MN. When Luke is not working, he likes to spend time with his family either golfing, fishing or working on one of a dozen current projects. Luke can be reached at (507) 286-1465.
