Sarah Polovitz | REALTOR®
Sarah Polovitz has been a licensed REALTOR® with Edina Realty since January 2014. She attended the University of North Dakota from 2002 to 2006, where she earned her private pilot license and obtained a B.A. in Marketing. After graduating, Sarah was a sales manager for a major retail corporation, and later became a national sales manager for a four-billion-dollar construction company.
Her strong sales and marketing experience has helped the RAUTH | POLOVITZ team achieve the top two percent (2%) of sales volume at Edina Realty multiple years in a row. Sarah attributes the team’s success to being able to listen to their clients and execute a customized marketing plan to achieve their real estate goals. Her strengths include strong social media presence, correct positioning in the marketplace, proactive communication, well-respected in the industry, and ability to adapt to the everchanging real estate market.
Sarah is married to her husband, Mark, and mother to two children, Johnny and Lauren. They enjoy spending time up north boating, fishing, hunting, sailing, skiing, and socializing with family and friends.
Sarah Polovitz is the Team Lead and represents buyers and sellers in all price ranges in the Twin Cities and Brainerd Lakes Area.
Kathy Rauth | REALTOR®
Kathy earned her real estate and broker license in 1981 during a period of extremely high interest rates (insert 18%!). Kathy sold real estate in Omaha, Nebraska from 1981 to 1985 and then transferred her license to Minnesota when she and her family moved north.
Kathy had a passion for flying and obtained her private pilot license as a teenager. Once Kathy moved back to Minnesota, she was introduced to an aviation community that nourished her thirst for flying. Over the course of the next four years, Kathy obtained many flight hours and ratings, and by 1989, was hired by a major airline where she worked as a commercial airline pilot for 20 years.
In 2005, “Captain Kathy” renewed her real estate license and started selling homes again while still flying internationally. By 2009, her real estate business was booming, so she took a leave of absence from flying to further grow her business. Despite the short sale and foreclosure climate of those years, Kathy learned how to successfully navigate the storm.
As mother-daughter pilots, Kathy and Sarah once dreamed of flying together in the friendly skies. Their dream took off when Sarah teamed up with Kathy in January 2014. They have successfully achieved volume and unit goals every year, while having a lot of fun along the way.
Kathy is married to her high school sweetheart, John. They have two daughters, Sarah and Becky, two wonderful sons-in-law, and four amazing grandchildren. Kathy’s happy place is at their cabin with her family, where they enjoy water sports, boating and time together.
Kathy Rauth represents buyers and sellers in all price ranges in the Twin Cities and Brainerd Lakes Area.
Al Anderson | REALTOR®
A native of the Twin Cities, Al has been a part of the community for over 20 years. He graduated from University of Wisconsin – Madison with a degree in Civil Engineering. Al's passion for real estate began at a young age watching his dad, aunt and uncle navigate the Twin Cities real estate market at Edina Realty.
Al spent the first six years of his professional career in the commercial construction field managing projects where he learned the importance of paying attention to detail and how to guide clients through complicated situations, which is transferrable to the home buying and selling process.
Outside of day-to-day life of being a REALTOR®, you can find Al waterskiing on Gull Lake or renovating the Minneapolis duplex he purchased with his fiancée, Alyssa.
Al Anderson represents buyers and sellers in all price ranges in the Twin Cities and Brainerd Lakes Area.
