About Beverly J. Van Alstine

Greetings! If you're contemplating a significant real estate move, I'm here to make the process seamless and enjoyable! With 16 years of dedicated experience in real estate, I've had the privilege of assisting numerous clients in buying, selling or relocating in and out of Duluth and our neighboring communities. In today's dynamic market, I understand the potential stresses involved, and I'm here to guide you every step of the way.


ABOUT ME: I'm a proud, home grown Minnesotan! I was raised on our family’s 827-acre farm in NW Minnesota. Many real estate situations can require cooperation, a down-to-earth mindset and the ability to adapt.  All are foundational life skills learned from 'The Farm'. After completing my college education, I ventured out of state for a time. However, the call of the Midwest and the longing to be closer to family brought me to Duluth in 2005. Immediately I fell in love with the area and knew I had found my HOME! I began exploring real estate as a long-term investment opportunity and is where i discovered my true passion for real estate, leading me to become a licensed Realtor in 2007.


Over the past decade, outside of my active Real Estate Career, my husband and I undertook multiple property renovation projects. Our final endeavor was constructing our own customized, energy-efficient, and green home right here in Duluth. These experiences and skills have proven invaluable in educating and assisting my clients.


REAL ESTATE SERVICE AREAS: My expertise extends across a wide range of areas, including Duluth, Hermantown, Proctor, Esko, Rice Lake, Saginaw, Knife River, Two Harbors, Saginaw, Cotton, Cloquet, Carlton, Wrenshall, Mahtowa, Midway Township, Duluth Township, Lakewood Township, Normanna Township, Fredenberg Township, Grand Lake Township, Cnesen Townhip, Canosia Township and Pequaywayn Township. 


HOBBIES: When I am not busy within my profession, a handful of my hobbies include photography, traveling, mountain biking, hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and canoeing. Any guess as to why I love the Duluth Area? Spending precious quality time with my husband, our family and friends is also an extremely important part of my life. Professionally, I am also active within the community, and volunteer my time to help with various hands-on local services projects and serve on a few local boards, that I'm passionate about.


SLOGAN: I provide, and YOU decide.

Now that you know a bit about me, I'm eager to connect with you and learn about your upcoming plans and real estate goals. Feel free to reach out, and let's embark on this exciting journey together.

Thanks, and best wishes to you!
