Kris Lindahl is a pioneer, innovator and influencer in the worlds of real estate, marketing, leadership, philanthropy and many more things to come. Raised in humble surroundings in Blaine, Minnesota, Kris was a natural entrepreneur. After losing his father in a tragic accident while he was just a sophomore at Fridley High School, he soon learned that he had to make his own opportunities. And he hasn’t stopped since. After studying to be a teacher and earning his education degree at Minnesota State Mankato, Kris discovered the world of real estate. In a remarkably short time, he went from being the state's #1 Real Estate Agent, to leading the state's #1 real estate team under a national brokerage umbrella, to founding his own real estate company—Kris Lindahl Real Estate—and more than tripling its size in two years. Today, Kris is a CEO, a Business Journal 40 Under 40 winner, a nationally sought-after speaker, a bestselling author, a popular podcast host, and the leader of the #BeGenerous Movement, which encourages people to follow his lead in consistently donating their Time, Talents and Treasures to the communities where they live and work. In his rare off hours, Kris can be spotted fishing one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes and spending as much time as possible with the most important person in his life: his daughter, Victoria, who inspires him to face overcome every challenge in life because "V is counting on me."
