-Zimmerman Office-

In 2012, I started my real estate journey and it has been amazing! I have worked with everyone from young buyers and sellers to people who were selling their lifelong home and looking for their next adventure! Seniors have a special place in my heart. I obtained specialty training as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist to help me understand the specific needs of seniors. My goal is to make the buying or selling experience as stress free as possible! In addition to my Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation, and many hours of real estate coursework, I also have a bachelor’s degree in counseling and am working on my master’s. With this degree, I have gained valuable skills in counseling clients and in negotiations. I listen to my clients to learn exactly what their needs are, whether they are buying or selling a home. I promise I will get you top dollar for your home in the shortest amount of time. If you are buying a home, I work hard to help you find what you want and negotiate the best possible deal!

Twenty-two years ago, my husband and I moved to Minnesota from Texas. He is from Minnesota and was stationed in Texas with the Air Force. If buying with a VA loan seems daunting, I can help! I will assist you in finding the best home and navigating the VA loan process. It is not as scary as it seems, I promise. My husband and I lived in the St. Cloud and Sartell areas for 15 years while we finished raising our children. Now empty-nesters (and grandparents), we have lived in the Big Lake area for the past seven years. Since moving to Minnesota our family has grown from six of us to eighteen, so I think it is safe to say that we are here to stay!

I am proud to call Exit Realty Metro home. Among us all, we have a ton of experience! At EXIT Realty Metro we promote family values and community throughout our agent base and participating in community events. Our team also meets regularly to brainstorm and help each other. At EXIT Realty Metro, one person’s success is everyone’s success! While I primarily cover Sherburne, Wright, and Stearns counties, I am happy to assist you where you are or refer you to someone who is closer.

I know this was a lot to take in, but I hope you have enjoyed getting to know me a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know you as well. To get started on the best real estate experience there is, call or text me at (320) 266-7564. You may also email me at

My family and friends describe me as a "renaissance woman". I think they mean there are a lot of things I love, and challenge myself to do. Renovating, up cycling, gardening, baking, caking, travel. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not so much. Such is life. At the end of the day I guess it was just how I planned it.

My career path has led me from Road Construction to Registered Nurse to Real Estate, and a few stops in between. I raised my family in the Minneapolis metro area and love it so much I convinced my husband to move from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina where we owned and operated an EXIT Realty Franchise.

I built my skills at our EXIT Franchise in an administrative role. Taught by some great REALTORS®, I learned about Residential Real Estate, short term rental investment properties, vacation homes, new buyers, sellers and luxury properties. It was a natural transition to become licensed and begin assisting buyers and sellers myself.

So, my goal as your REALTOR® is to make your path, whether buying, selling or investing, however short, long or winding, one that is ” just how we planned it”.
Flexibility & a variety of Knowledge in any market is a great asset to have in your Realtor®.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.

A little about myself;

My name is Kat Grigoleit (Pronounced “Grig-oh-Lay” it’s a weird one) and I specialize in assisting buyers and sellers throughout Ramsey County and the surrounding suburbs. Whether you’re searching for an investment property, the dream home or looking to sell your current castle… I have you covered.

I have an assertive personality that drives me to strive for excellence and the satisfaction of my clients. Our team at EXIT can help you navigate through the frustration and confusion of the entire home owning/buying process. No matter how big or small your real estate goals, they’re important and we’ll come up with a plan to get you there.

EXIT Realty is unlike a harshly corporate franchise that only looks at the numbers. You and your dreams are not a number. The business model we follow at EXIT is completely people-oriented and that’s one of the main reasons for the company’s phenomenal growth and success. You.


“The team at EXIT Leaders are energetic, passionate professionals who will go the extra mile to help you with your real estate needs. Whether buying or selling, contact EXIT Leaders today!” - Clifton K. -Woodbury

“Professional, responsive and always looking out for our interests. Thank you again!” - Joann C. -Robbinsdale

We have a team of professionals that specialize in areas such as tax ramifications and title know-how that are detrimental in a smooth flowing, stress free Real Estate transaction. Our office and myself have instant access to the regional Multiple Listing Service, lead-generation systems and many other tools to better serve you.

The office support here is comparable to a closely-knit family. Everybody in the space contributes individual expertise, resources, technical skills and time to assist one another when the need arises. Does it sometimes feel like a scene from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”? Yes, but we love it.

Originally I grew up on the east coast but migrated to the chilly land of Minnesota. I attended school in the Red Wing area while summering in Maryland and eventually attended college in St. Paul for finance until I decided to pursue a career in real estate.

I currently live in St. Paul with a pleasantly plump house cat named Angelo but enjoy taking day trips to visit my family on their hobby farm. I love playing softball, skiing, grilling corn and relaxing surrounded by good people.

I grew up in Hastings, MN and graduated from Hastings High School. I continued my education at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls where I earned my degree in Sociology with a minor in Spanish. My degree allows me to have a wide social “lens” and cultural understanding. I spend my free time coaching soccer, which enables me to interact with people from all walks of life.
My passion is helping people in any way, big or small. It just so happens that I found a career where I get the joy of helping people in one of the biggest ways: by representing them in the buying or selling of homes. I am a driven, caring, and pet-friendly realtor and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to help you in any way I can.

Richfield is an inner ring suburb of Minneapolis-Saint Paul region and is bordered by Minneapolis to the north, Minneapolis-Saint Paul international airport to the east, Bloomington to the south, and Edina to the west.

I have been a licensed Realtor with EXIT Realty Metro since 2015 and have 10 years of experience in the mortgage and real estate industry. My EXIT team has sold a lot of houses. With that being said we pride ourselves in putting our clients first!

My background is in SALES! I spent 14 years in magazine sales/renewals, telemarketing, and management. I am also a model mentor, consultant and a have been a model for 20 years.

I mainly work with first time home buyers, foreclosures, and relocations.

My professional branding slogan is "changing people's lives one SALE AT A TIME!”

I am a Mother to a college student. I value my Family time and love doing dinners, movies and fun activities with them. I love to dance (choreography is in my blood). I love to cook and work out on my down time. I love to give back when I can, so when time permits, I go volunteer at Feed My Starving Children. Both of my parents are hearing impaired. My dad is hard of hearing and my mom is deaf, which means I am fluent in ASL (American Sign Language). Being around positive people is a must!

Fun Facts: I model and have been for over 20 years (runway, print, commercial, and promotional). I recently finished filming 2 movies in 2017 and 2018. One is a mini comedy called Brad and Dwight's Dance Off and the other is called Tuscaloosa, featuring Devin Bostick (from Diary of a Whimpy Kid) and Natalia Dyer (from Stranger Things).

Michael Trimberger

License ID:40677264


I moved to the South Metro with my family in 2017, and am proud to help others buy their first home in the Prior Lake area. After graduating with a degree in Spanish and Business I spent a year teaching in Quito, Ecuador, where my wife grew up. When I returned to Southeastern Wisconsin I helped remodel several homes, learning about various construction techniques. All of those experiences made real estate seem like a natural fit. I’m excited to bring my passion to a company like EXIT Realty, that has been offering its hands-on, community-driven services for over 20 years. We believe that the relationship built with our clients is the most important part of real estate. When I’m not helping my clients I can be found searching for new adventures to share with my wife and daughter, or acting as a substitute teacher in the Prior Lake-Savage school district. For help with any real estate questions you might have I can be reached at 920.254.6442 or

En el 2017 me mude con mi familia a la parte sur de Minneapolis, y me encantaría ayudar a otras personas a comprar su primera casa en esta área. Después de graduarme con un título en Negocios y Español, pase un año enseñando en Quito, Ecuador, el país de origen de mi esposa. Cuando regrese al sureste de Wisconsin ayude a remodelar varias casas, y así aprendí diferentes técnicas de construcción. Todas estas experiencias han hecho que la decisión de empezar en bienes raíces sea la decisión correcta. Estoy muy emocionado de brindar mi iniciativa y pasión a una compañía como EXIT Realty, que ha brindado servicios prácticos y enfocados en la comunidad por más de 20 años. Nosotros creemos que la relación que creamos con nuestros clientes es la parte más importante del negocio de bienes raíces. Cuando no estoy ayudando a mis clientes estoy en búsqueda de nuevas aventuras con mi esposa e hija o como maestro sustituto para las escuelas del distrito de Prior Lake-Savage.
