Director of Operations
Elizabeth is originally from the sunny state of California, having lived a combined 10 years in Sacramento, San Diego County, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles. Moving to Minnesota, she has created roots in Woodbury, Shakopee and now firmly planted in beautiful Prior Lake. As a graduate of the Carlson School of Management from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science and Marketing Degree, she offers a passion for working within the marketing and sales arena. Elizabeth also earned her Real Estate License from Kaplan immediately upon graduation from Carlson. While also working as a Realtor, her first corporate career began in corporate software and technology Sales with attorneys, judges, law enforcement and compliance departments. Her extensive sales experience, passion, and excitement for technology contributed to her thriving career in this field. Elizabeth also has a special passion for design, residential renovation, and new construction. She has flipped dozens of homes, designed floorplans, made all specifications for new construction homes from top to bottom and conducted interior designs. She owned a residential flipping company for several years and also served as the VP of Design for Pebble Creek Custom Homes. She is currently finishing her diploma in Interior Design from The Interior Design Institute with advanced courses in Kitchen and Bathroom design, Auto-CAD, and Social Media and Marketing for Interior Design. Not only does she love technology and design, she also earned the title as Mrs. Minnesota United States in 2014, winning best in Evening Gown, Swimsuit, and Most Photogenic. This title allowed her an experience of a lifetime, a sisterhood, and a voice to promote her passion of volunteerism within the community. Finally, Elizabeth welcomed the opportunity to work on the Walgrave Real Estate Group and is responsible for overseeing strategic planning, information technology, administrative and operations management, events, design and marketing operatives. Combining all of her passions and expertise into a role that is along-side her husband, Jason Walgrave, this is the perfect fit! When Elizabeth isn’t busy in the office, she enjoys spending time with her children, husband, and puppy (Cookie Walgrave), hiking, gardening, cooking, swimming, golfing, dancing, volunteering, pageantry, fashion, and of course, interior design!
