  • What We Do

    The experience you have of selling or buying your home makes all the difference in the world. This is where we excel.


    We pride ourselves in not only being the most competent, technology savvy agents around…but we take pride in the way our clients talk about their experiences during, and after their transaction.


    We believe over-delivering on expectations is the least we can do when it comes to customer service.


    • We divide tasks in multiple directions. Putting people in place with passion and expertise for what they do
    • We use creativity in the marketing of your home

    • Our relationships last long after we shake hands at the closing table


    This allows us to do our job: Creating and maintaining client relationships with service that isn’t found anywhere else in our industry.

  • Who is Don?


    As a lead agent, Don’s main focus has always been to give our clients the best service, advice, and experience possible. A decade into real estate and his referrals and testimonials are a reflection upon his professionalism and genuine caring for his clients.

    Early in life, Don had a keen interest in technology and took his talents to SanFrancisco, working for a start-up. He returned to the Twin Cities, continuing in the tech field. As his father had sparked his interest in building, he always kept abreast of the real estate market and forged his path to a career he cares deeply about. He takes a modern approach, leveraging two of his passions: real estate and technology - ensuring his clients always have an advantage over the competition.

    Don is a “consultant” in every form of the word. He has made it his passion and life’s work to provide professional and expert advice about real estate, not just as your agent, but as a colleague and confidant.

    Who is libby?

    Libby grew up in Lowry Hill, and has lived in the Minneapolis lakes area all of her life. She has been selling real estate for 11 years, and she knows the Twin Cities, the Lakes Area, Edina, South and Southwest Minneapolis, and the Downtown Minneapolis markets very well. Her knowledge of the market, and her friendly down to earth personality, make her a great asset to work with. She graduated from the University of Minnesota, majoring in communication, and she believes that good communication is everything. She is a thoughtful, albeit tenacious negotiator, to have on your team when buying and selling real estate.

    Libby has recently joined the Lakes Sotheby's brokerage. "I believe in the people at Sotheby's. I believe in the brand, the network, and the systems that Lakes Sotheby's allows me to offer my clients." Libby also joined Sotheby's to partner with the Don Edam Group, working alongside Don Edam and Mary Cathers. "It takes a great team to provide the level of service I always want to provide for my clients. I trust this team, and trust is everything."

    Libby has a well trained design eye, and she is worth her weight in gold when assisting her clients in preparing their homes to sell. This gets her sellers a premium sales price, as their homes show beautifully when hitting the market. Her keen eye also aids her buyers in seeing the potential in properties for purchase. "I enjoy finding homes that my clients can build equity in over time. We can never predict the market, but purchasing the right property with room for improvement, can be a great way to build equity, and this takes vision! And of course, location is everything!"

    Who is Allison?

    A former small business owner and manager of a coffee shop, Allison Reilly prides herself on dreaming big while ensuring that client satisfaction remains a priority.

    When she isn't at work, she is the proud mother of two and enjoys the outdoors, tracing back to her undergraduate days at the University of Utah where she relished her role as a tour operator following her graduation with a Bachelor's of Arts in Parks and Tourism.

  • Mike & Stacy E. - Buyers

    I had a great experience with Don Edam. I found a home and knew I had to act fast to buy it. Because Don's masterful negotiation skills and local market knowledge, in a short amount of time I was able to purchase the home at fair price. If you value service, experience and integrity in your real estate agent, look no further than Don Edam.

    Mark & Edel L. - Seller

    The team was able to sell my home for $40,000 more than what another, "well known and experienced" realtor in my area offered. After interviewing other realtors and speaking with friends in the business, it was clear that Don, John, and Mary were the team with the most drive, best customer service and process knowledge, and fastest response. They were hungry and willing to tell me what I needed to do to make my ideal sales price. I'm very happy with their service and grateful to choose them.

    Jon & Katherine R. - Buyers

    We worked with Don on the purchase of our first home. Don was very accommodating and mindful of our must haves in each house that we toured. Don was also very helpful in explaining each step of the process and what we could expect as possible outcomes. We we very pleased with the professionalism Don displayed as well as a very personalized and friendly touch throughout the entire process. We HAVE recommended Don and his team to any friends and family in the market to buy/sell. We love our home and we appreciate Don for all he did to make it a reality!

    Sue D. - Seller

    Working with Don was a wonderful experience. He helped us to sell a house in Edina that had been previously handled by a realtor who quite frankly, tried to take advantage of us and really mishandled the sale. Once Don stepped in, he worked with us to get the house sold and all issues were resolved. We were so impressed that we contacted him to help my son find his first home. Both experiences were positive and I would recommend him to anyone in that area of town.
