About Teresa Boardman
I have been licensed and actively selling real estate since 2002 and am a Minnesota licensed real estate broker, and the owner of Boardman Realty, a small, highly focused client-centered real estate company, which is woman-owned and operated. Each home sale or purchase is unique and personal. I work with home buyers and home sellers of all ages, specializing in older homes in the city and downtown condos. We always welcome new business.
In 2017 I earned the SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designation so that I have the tools needed to work with an aging population.
I have been a columnist for Inman News since 2008. Inman News provides news and advice to the real estate industry. My articles range from news stories to tips and ideas for real estate professionals. I have also served as a subject matter expert for other news sources and government agencies.
Saint Paul has been my home my entire life. I graduated from The College of Saint Catherine with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Prior to my career in real estate, I worked as a software consultant, and a staff manager with a software consulting company and before that for Metro Transit in various positions.
As a volunteer, I served on the board of directors for the Community Reporter Newspaper for ten years, and on the board of directors for the West Seventh Community center for twelve years. I delivered meals on wheels for 12 years. I am currently a precinct election judge, serving as a poll worker in Ramsey county during elections.
I live in a very old house in the Upper Town area just west of downtown St. Paul with my husband. We have two adult children.
I am also a photographer. I do some fine arts photography and architectural photography including interiors of homes. All of our listings are professionally photographed. Excellent photography is an important tool for marketing homes on the internet.
I am a member of NorthstarMLS Agent Advisory Committee and a member of the Professional Standards Committee of The Minnesota Association of Realtors.
