Galen Johnson – Broker
I come into the real estate business as a broker who knows it takes hard work and dedication to market and sell homes. I expect high professional standards from myself as well as the agents that represent the RE/MAX name. To treat each client with the respect and understanding that they would give to their own family and that is what you will get when you walk through our door.
My family and I are lucky to have picked Park Rapids as our home town. With so many things to do, lakes to fish, and trails to explore, it’s wonderful that I can be right here doing a job I love. Selling your home or buying a home is an emotional time, moving to a new place can be very overwhelming my agents and I are here for you every step of the way.
I have been in the real estate profession for 31 years I have excellent knowledge of area properties and markets and know the area well, as it has been my home town for the past 40 years. My husband and I built our home together in 1986. We are members of the Park Rapids Antique Tractor & Engine Club. I also enjoy gardening, reading, walking, hunting, and fishing in my spare time. I am honest, dependable and will do my best to help you market your property or find the property you are looking for. So put RE/MAX First Choice and I to work for you!

Being a Minnesota native, my husband Jeff and I bought our lake home in the Park Rapids area in 1995. I attended and graduated from North Hennepin College and the U of M with a degree in business. I have worked as a loan officer before switching into real estate as a realtor in the Park Rapids area for several years. I had strong family ties to this profession as I am part of a real estate agent family. I have genuine passion for helping people fill their desires of finding that special property or listing their home to make it shine.
Jeff and I have 2 sons who both graduated from Park Rapids High School, and are both graduates from St. Cloud State University. We enjoy family time together water skiing, boating, or just relaxing by the lake in winter things turn to snowmobiling.
I believe volunteering makes you a well rounded individual and currently I am involved in the Salvation Army as coordinator for the local bell ringing, President of the Osage Lions, I serve as a Park Rapids Ambassador, and a member in the Park Rapids Rotary Club. I am an active member at Calvary Lutheran Church in Park Rapids. I look forward to meeting you and serving your Real Estate needs with honesty and hard work!
I grew up in small town in Northern Minnesota and have lived in the Park Rapids/Walker region for a decade. I enjoy the smaller communities and love the lakes in this area.
I’ve worked in the public service field for several years and appreciate all that it has taught me. With that, my goals are to start moving into the real estate field. I have a strong commitment to be a superb real estate agent and assisting in all aspects of the real estate transaction.
I have enjoyed growing up and living here in Northern MN. As a graduate of Walker H.S. and MSUM Moorhead my roots run deep in this lake area we call home. My husband, Colter and I have been lucky to call Park Rapids home for the past 8 years and enjoy showing our two children everything this great area has to offer. I have worked for the past 8 years in the service industry and know that client relations are key in this huge decision and investment of buying or selling a home. Working together we can make that process enjoyable and stress free. Looking forward to meeting you and I will work hard to show you all the benefits of living here in Northern MN.
My husband Joel and I have called Park Rapids home for the past 23 years. We have enjoyed raising our 2 daughters in the beautiful north woods, where we have passed on the love of the lakes and outdoors to them. I have enjoyed working in the service industry for the past 20 years. During those years I have learned a variety of different skills which I believe will help me with my Real estate career. I enjoy volunteering in our Community. I am a member of Calvary Lutheran Church where I will be traveling with our youth on my third Mission trip. My goal is to provide you with the best experience possible as I help you with all your real estate needs. I’d be honored to help you find a house and make it your home.
