Meet Kala

After graduating from college with a degree in business and marketing, I realized something important, career-setting and lifechanging: that my one true passion is helping people. That’s why I’d like to help you finance your dream home.

Since I grew up in Eagan, my Minnesota roots run deep – and my small-town North Dakota parents instilled in me the values of hard work and integrity that have made me who I am today. When I returned to the Twin Cities in 2016, my move ultimately lead me to Bell Bank Mortgage, where you can put my integrity and passion to work for you.

How I Work

I am very thorough and hands-on – you will most likely hear from me multiple times throughout the homebuying process. I go above and beyond to ensure the process is seamless and easy for everyone involved.

I like to get to know my clients on a personal level – you're a name, never a number! Confidentiality, professonalism and prompt responses are all hallmarks of the work I do.
