Karaley Ivey

    “Karaley has always had a passion for real estate, even though it wasn’t her first career. After seven years of outstanding customer service at a small local plumbing business she changed paths and real estate was the natural choice. As a lifelong resident of Eagan, her knowledge and familiarity with the South Metro area will shine through. Today she is a loyal, trustworthy, and competent agent looking out for her clients’ best interest. When not helping her clients, she enjoys music, art and being with her family and friends!”

John Dedzej – Tour Factory – Photography and Virtual Tour

When photographing a home, John shares our vision, to envision a “SOLD” sign already in front of the home.  To accomplish this goal, he has found a few important facets that must be in the mix.


  • A team approach with a proactive Realtor is an absolute, along with a set of professional photos that can be turned into a “digital home photo story” wedded to a diverse systematic marketing campaign.


  • John has three decades of a strong business, technology background.  He joined Tour Factory in 2003.  700,000 photos and hundreds of homes later, it is clear, the best set of photos deserve team work with an energetic professional Realtor and together we both reach the goal of “SOLD”!
