Liz Novotny has an educational background having previously taught in the Minneapolis Public School district for six years before transitioning toward her second career as a Realtor and finding her true passion working in Real Estate. She began this second career negotiating short sales for distressed buyers during the great recession in the early 2000’s and previously held the Certified Distressed Property Expert accreditation before later obtaining her Old Home Certification. Liz thrives on the opportunity to educate both buyers and sellers on the real estate sale process and has found a way to ensure all of her clients are represented thoroughly through her agency agreements.
Liz has spent ten+ years years residing, shopping, and dining in Northeast Minneapolis. With many thriving small business owners, an ever-growing art district, and the frequent additions of breweries & distilleries to quench one's most elite tastes, Northeast Minneapolis has something for everyone. She has served on a few of Minneapolis’ neighborhood boards, is the current co-chair of Minneapolis Nature Preschool and is a member of NE Minneapolis’ Fair State Brewery. Being a part of the community and sharing voices for the often unheard is what drives Liz each morning.
Liz takes respite in nature while camping, canoeing or walking through the woods. She often suggests hiking as a way to work through problems that too often need the fresh air that only thousands of trees can provide. You can also find Liz discussing the days events at her local brewery/distillery with her friends, family and clients all while supporting small businesses.
Liz was recommended to my wife and I when we decided we wanted to put our house on the market and move a year ago. We had no idea what we needed to do in order for our house to sell in a timely manner. Liz walked us through the process of what we should do, what needed to be done, and what would be a waste of time. We learned a lot from Liz and everything she recommended worked because our house sold fairly quickly, faster than my wife and I expected.

When I sold my home a few years ago, the Minnesota housing market was tough and the possibility of a short sale was being considered. I called only one real estate agent, Liz Novotny. She has a reputation for being able to negotiate some difficult sales which I experienced first hand. I know full well that her expertise resulted in the sale of my home. She never faltered at any challenge that came her way and I know this commitment makes Liz Novotny someone I would call again.’
Once we sold our house, we had to find a house so we wouldn’t be homeless. Liz is based in Minneapolis but we wanted to move outside the metro area. She was patient and very helpful with finding homes to look at in the Albertville/St. Michael/Hanover area. Some of them were nice, but we went with Liz’s recommendation to stay away from some of them, some had problems that she saw and pointed them out to us. My wife and I came across a house that we liked and Liz recommended, settled on a price, and bam – we had a new home we loved! We would definitely recommend Liz to family and friends. We will also call Liz the next time we need a realtor.
