My name is Lisa Boerum and I am an executive assistant at Keller Williams Premier Realty in Stillwater, MN. I live in White Bear Township, MN. You can also find me on many online platforms.
Office Management – Executive Administrative Assistant
I started in real estate in 2013 as an executive assistant for a local Keller Williams agent. As his first and only employee, I learned the real estate industry from the ground up and have been responsible for creating the systems necessary to run the office and business smoothly. My responsibilities encompass the activities of four key roles: administrative manager, listing manager, transaction coordinator, and marketing director. I was drawn to this position because I enjoy all of the aspects of each of these four roles and the diversity the position offers.
This newly-formed position has involved a significant amount of system and process development. Two of my strengths are planning and organizing and I truly enjoy planning, developing, implementing, and organizing new systems and processes and tweaking them until they are as efficient and cost effective as possible.

Business Management – Businesses I’ve Owned
Prior to joining the world of real estate, I owned and managed several businesses for many years. I was Director and Business Owner at Awesome Beginnings Childcare, in Hugo, MN, during the majority of those years. This satisfied two of my deepest passions: working with children and early childhood education.
More recently, I owned Clean Living Market and Awesome Beginnings 4 Children. I created and managed an ecommerce store and blog, AwesomeBeginnings4Children.com, that offered natural products to expectant and new parents. I also retailed new and used items on eBay, Amazon, and various other selling venues.
Web Design – Front End Web Development
I have developed a strong passion for creating websites since creating my first website, AwesomeBeginnings4Chidren.com, back in 2010. I have created many webites since then. I enjoy creating and designing them as well as writing the content for them. I code all of my pages by hand, using html and css. I find this allows me full control of the outcome, especially when using WordPress. I prefer WordPress; however, I have used other platforms as well. I have also created a site from scratch using Microsoft Expression Web for my final project in one of my classes at Century College.
A Diverse Set of Skills
For many years, I had the opportunity to wear many hats and, as a result, I have become very resourceful. I have a strong student mentality and I have acquired a very diverse set of skills. I excel in planning, goal-setting, and organizational skills. I am very passionate about providing excellent client/customer service which resulted in client retention and a word-of-mouth waiting list for my child care business and 100% positive feedback with over 1700 customer testimonials on one of my selling venues. I take client/customer satisfaction very seriously!
