I am a native of the Brainerd lakes area. Born and raised in Brainerd I am one of six children, five of which still live and work in the area. After graduating from Brainerd Sr. high in 1986, I went on to attend college at the University of Minnesota Duluth where I studied business and participated on the hockey team. After college I signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL and went on to play professional hockey in the U.S. and Europe for 12 seasons. Returning to the Brainerd area in the off seasons I quickly realizes what a unique and beautiful part of the world this is and I always looked forward to coming back here to live and raise my family. Kurilla Real Estate has been selling premium properties in the lakes area for over 40 years. As an Owner and Broker of Kurilla Real Estate I am very proud of our sucess and am extremely excited for the future of our area and Kurilla Real Estate. Please feel free to call on the Sandy Smith Marketing Team for all your real estate needs.
