The Story of Dunn Realty Group
Sean and Jennifer Dunn combined their passion for service to community and their knowledge of housing and remodeling with their work, beginning their real estate careers in 2007 and 2008 respectively, after years in the public sector. After working at other real estate brokerages, they founded Dunn Realty Group in 2016 in order to craft their own business and bring in agents who also share their same passion and dedication to their clients.
Dunn Realty Group was born out of a desire to build a reputation as a strong, sustainable, client-focused business of the highest quality.
Naming a company after the owners means they have to take their work extremely seriously, as their name is our reputation. They “Work By Referral”; their business is built on the relationships they cultivate and maintain with their clients and business partners. They don’t chase transactions, they build relationships.
They are excited about the opportunity to be your Realtors and provide you the valuable advice and direction you need to buy or sell your next home.
Both Jennifer and Sean came to real estate with skills they honed in previous careers. Jennifer knows the Twin Cities after having studied and represented many local governments as a lobbyist and policy analyst. She has a strong research, process and negotiation background having worked as a legislative aide and lobbyist for local cities. Sean brings the benefit of his experience remodeling our own homes and is also a stager, helping your home sell in the shortest time and for the most money.
“We listen, we follow through, we close the deal. We make all the moving pieces fit. And we have fun. We know you will too, when you work with our group.”
– Jennifer Dunn
“Whether you’re buying or selling a home the entire process should go smoothly. Buying and selling a home is fun! We will help you either buy the house that fits you best, or find the right buyer if you are selling your home.
We will be there to answer your questions, starting long before the transaction happens to well after the transaction is complete. We also help connect our clients to any resources you may need – from loan officers and financial advisors to painters and remodelers.”
“You should be able to trust your realtor to advise you in YOUR best interest. You should be able to recommend your Realtor to other buyers and sellers without hesitation. We believe in this so much that our customer’s referrals drive our success. This allows us to better focus on building lasting relationships with our clients thus building trust.
The most important job we have as Realtors is to build trust with our clients. This is the basis for all of the “why’s” of what we do and how we do it.”

Christine Swan graduated from the College of Saint Scholastic in Duluth with a double major in management and marketing. She began her career in Real Estate in December of 2015 when she realized that sitting behind a desk was not for her. Realty was always something she had an interest in, but it became so much more apparent when she bought her first home. It was then that she decided she wanted to help people feel as excited as she was when she bought her home. As Christine says, “I made the jump into realty and decided it was time to make my dreams a reality. I love being around people and even more I love helping people and I wanted to show them that buying a home is super fun and not scary at all!”
In her free time she likes to spend time outside in the garden, having bonfires, biking, playing tennis, coaching lacrosse and soccer, going to the lake – and her new favorite is making salsa from all the fresh veggies from the garden! This year she will give making jam a try! Another thing she and her husband enjoy doing is walking the dogs, Abraham & Lincoln, around the lakes and stopping off at their favorite little burger spot for dinner. Making the choice to go into real estate was the best decision ever and she hopes to help you with the purchase or sale of your next home!
