New Owners – Walker Hotel

Conrad is a seasoned real estate investor with an extensive portfolio spanning MN, TX, FL, and HI. Since beginning his real estate journey in 2005 and steadily expanding his holdings since 2011, he has acquired a diverse range of properties, from single-family homes to apartment complexes. Alongside his real estate ventures, Conrad has excelled in the Mortgage Business since 2008, consistently ranking in the top 1%. Recently, he has shifted focus to Short Term Rentals and Real Estate Syndications, including the addition of the Walker Hotel to his portfolio. Originally from Pine River, MN, Conrad fondly recalls visiting Walker, MN, and the casino with his late grandmother. He loves Walker for its progressive culture of supporting small businesses, community involvement, and the draw of breathtaking Leech Lake. A graduate of St. Cloud State University with a degree in marketing, Conrad is skilled in risk management, financial projections, and identifying high-profit properties. He and his wife Natasha look forward to the bright future Walker has to offer.
