Alan and Judi were both wonderful to work with. 

Greg J.

During his 45 years as a Broker/Owner of CENTURY 21 Vista, Alan has always been one of the top listing and selling agents in the firm, specializing in farms, rural and lake shore property. Recently, Alan joined forced with Century 21 Atwood as Associate Broker/Manager.

Alan partners with his wife Judi, whom he credits for his sales and service success. She has 45 years of experience in sales and marketing and together they do 50 transactions a year. Judi is a Broker and has achieved the Certified Residential Specialist designation (CRS), something which only 4% of U.S. Realtors® achieve. She is also a Graduate of the Institute (GRI), an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and Resort and Recreational Sales Specialist (RRS), and has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert designation (CDPE), making her well educated and capable of providing the highest quality of real estate service. When asked why 45 years of real estate experience matters to clients Alan said, "Experience allows us to realize in just a few moments what the needs of our clients really are. In addition, it enables us to be excellent negotiators to be able to accomplish the goals of both the buyer and seller in any given transaction, which makes it win win for all." Also, Alan has coached and counseled his agents all these years which qualifies him to be an extraordinary negotiator. Judi gives God the glory for their success and they together serve you with honesty and integrity.


"Judi and Alan Olson, along with Tamara Dahlen, make an amazing team! The three of them displayed complete professionalism and over-the-top expertise while helping us through the process of purchasing our lake property.

I know I will definitely consider using them again the future!" - Kathy Ballinger, Maple Grove

"After contacting Alan and Judi Olson to determine availability of lakefront residences in the Central Lakes region of Minnesota, my wife and I were very impressed with their immediate and professional response to our request. Our criteria for a new home were very specific and somewhat unique and although such property was limited, Judi worked tirelessly for over a year to help us achieve our goal. During this time Alan provided advice and recommendations based on his years of experience in the field of Real Estate and ultimately the Olson’s enables us to purchase a home which perfectly suits our needs." - W.

"I just wanted to send you a little note to thank you so much for helping our son, Ben, find a home he was comfortable buying and working with him in a timely manner as homes came up for sale. My husband and I were grateful that you watched out for him and guided him in a positive direction. We were grateful that sometimes you suggested it might be better to pass by a given property in lieu of something that would be a better fit for him. In the end, the home he ended up with, I think he is very happy with and that is important. So again, I want to thank you for the nice job you did working with him and helping us all feel good about a home for him. You are an awesome, honest person. Thank you." - Darlene and Earl Felling

The closing process was extremely easy and done timely." - Gail Korth
