Kaleb was born and raised in rural Mankato. He attended St. Clair Public High School and later went on to study at the University of Minnesota, Morris. He double majored in Global Business Management and Farm Drainage Management. His senior thesis was on the inadequacies of Governor Dayton's 2016 buffer initiative.
Since graduating, he has worked in his family's farm drainage surveying business, Air-Row Surveying, LLC. Through his work in the family business, he has been involved in multiple cost sharing and government grant discussions on better water management practices for farmers. He is also a member of MNLICA (Minnesota's Land Improvement Contractors of America), which is a trade organization that includes lobbying for farmers and land rights in the Minnesota legislature.
Kaleb is also an appraiser and runs his own business, LandPlus Appraisals. Through his time in the appraisal industry he has specialized in Ag and rural residential appraisals and is a proud member of ASFMRA (American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers). He is also a licensed drone pilot and uses his fleet of drones to provide property inspections and videos for land sales and appraisals.
In the past, he has enjoyed helping restore his great grandpa's 1930 Model C Case tractor with his dad and grandpa. Kaleb is looking forward to helping you find the right piece of land that can be managed and passed on for generations to come!
