Amy Pudil at Weichert, Realtors® – Advantage excited to meet with clients on Lake Minnetonka

Amy Pudil, a real estate agent at Weichert, Realtors® – Advantage, enjoys meeting with clients at her ice house office on Lake Minnetonka.

LAKE MINNETONKA, Minn. / Feb. 21, 2018 – First impressions go a long way – especially in business. Making that first impression last can be tricky, though.
But not for Amy Pudil, a real estate agent at Weichert, Realtors® – Advantage in Wayzata. It’s hard to forget Pudil and an ice house – normally used for fishing on a frozen lake – that she transformed into her little yellow office to meet clients at for the first time.
“The look on my clients’ faces is priceless when they meet me for the first time at an ice house on Lake Minnetonka,” said Pudil. “It definitely grabs their attention.”
Pudil’s Weichert® yellow ice house comes with all the comforts needed for meetings with her clients: indoor heating, bench-style seating and table, a mini electric oven range, a private restroom, and natural light that comes through the shuttered windows with flower boxes.
The frozen lake mini real estate office also features a wall-mounted radar system for fishing along with a flat screen monitor and underwater camera, which is a big hit with kids whose parents are meeting with Pudil.
“You won’t find another real estate office like this on or near Lake Minnetonka,” said Pudil, who meets about a dozen clients a week at the ice house. “Seeing the lengths that I’m willing to go to make a great first impression shows my clients how hard I’m willing to work to help create the most memorable home buying or selling experience possible.”
Weichert, Realtors® – Advantage is an independently owned and operated Weichert affiliate. The company, located in Woodbury and Wayzata, serves the Twin Cities area of Minnesota area and surrounding cities.
