Serving the Twin Cities from St Paul and Minneapolis to the Western suburbs of Lake Minnetonka…..

With 25 years as a licensed Realtor and 20 years as the broker of York Realty, Ralph Kempf has the knowledge, experience and resources to help you achieve your real estate goals.  Whether you are new to the market or an experienced investor, Ralph  will give you his full attention, consideration and the benefit of his experience. 

An industry trend is toward growing transaction numbers through a “team” approach. By contrast, York Realty is a small shop, very one-on- one.  You will find me accessible - When the phone rings, I pick it up. When you have a question, I’m the one to find the answer. It is a personalized way of doing business every step of the way, that my clients enjoy and share with their friends and family.   I do not hand you off to an assistant. We devise strategies and consider negotiations together.  I accompany my clients on inspections.  I am your primary contact from day one through closing.

My goal is to provide you personalized service that reflects your specific needs, that brings you a pleasant and assured experience from our first meeting through closing and that maximizes the financial benefit of your real estate transaction.

 Bringing a Unique Perspective:  I know buildings from the inside out and recognize opportunity as well as value.  Having built my own home from design to swinging the hammer, as well as renovating many modern and vintage homes (including our own turn of the century home) I have an eye for the possibilities and give a perspective that few others in the industry can offer.

Loretta and I also own income property and manage some 46 properties for ourselves and others. I am on the Board of Directors of a Lake Minnetonka condominium association and know association issues.  Real estate is what I do and who I am.
