Lisa Janisch, Broker/Realtor


Dan Janisch, Realtor


Lisa Janisch - Founder/Broker

Known for her personal integrity and unending drive, Lisa became a Realtor as an evolution of her career in construction. A fifth-generation carpenter & millwright, she was the first female carpenter in the Iron Range Union and over the years advanced through the field until obtaining a Superintendent position. One of her last projects was a $500M international wind energy project overseeing 300 employees.

Lisa founded Janisch Realty in 2012 after recognizing the need for a real estate firm that could change the industry by raising the standards of integrity and service. She saw the need for a real estate firm that could work with all types of clients with trust and respect. Now in her twelfth year of real estate, Lisa has distinguished herself as a leader. Prior to starting her own firm, Lisa worked for a national franchise for five years, where she was one of their top agents and achieved a designation as the only premier property agent in her region.

As Broker of Janisch Realty, Lisa oversees the strategic and day to day operations of the company. Her style is to work closely with clients in order to give them the level of dedication and service they deserve. Her honest, straight-forward management style and knowledge of the area, market trends, construction techniques and real estate negotiations have helped to set Lisa and her company apart.

While the Broker of Janisch Realty, Lisa has been appointed to the Minnesota Association of Realtors Professional Standards Committee, which upholds the Association’s Code of Ethics.

When she’s not striving for excellence in the real estate business by building and supporting her team of top agents, you might find Lisa learning to fly a floatplane. Originally from Ely, Lisa currently lives on Lake Vermilion with her husband Dan, who is also a Realtor with the Janisch Realty team.
