“Whether buying or selling, I will always work with your best interest in mind.”

My passion is helping people.

A native of Michigan, Elaine Buhs has lived in Mankato for over 13 years.  She brings 25 years experience as a Registered Nurse to JBeal Real Estate Group.  As a Nurse, she learned how to listen and act on the behalf of patients, as well as their families.  

I know what it’s like to move into a new community.  It can take up a year or more before you really feel like you know your new surroundings! But it doesn’t need to. As a transplant, I understand the needs and challenges of getting connected to your new location.  With each move, I’ve gained a lot of experience purchasing, selling, staging and even building a home. Getting my real estate license has given me a great understanding of the whole process. I truly have a passion for creating a smooth transition for buyers and sellers.

My husband Chad and I have two teenaged children.  We are hosting our third International Exchange student from Germany.  We also have two dogs: Molly, a rescue from BENCHES, and Chloe. We love to travel as a family and have had the privilege of visiting two of our former students in Germany. 

I’m an avid gardener, walker and car enthusiast. I love being involved in the Mankato community and have been a part of numerous organizations & fundraisers for causes that are near and dear to my heart.  

I’d love to assist you in getting connected to the community.  Please call me at 507-720-2313!
