Bob Lamson began marketing himself as DuplexKing in 1976. He was the first realtor to specialize in duplex sales in the Twin Cities when he began his career in the early 1970’s. His newly discovered niche allowed him to share his expertise and experience of personally owning and managing rental properties with his sellers and buyers. What would follow was a successful life-long career marketing sellers investment properties and helping buyers get into and expand their rental portfolios. Bob was born and raised locally, a graduate of Minnetonka High School, and Mankato State University. He held several leadership positions and attained numerous notable achievements throughout his nearly five decades of real estate service including: Director of the Minneapolis Board of Realtors and member of the Professional Standards Committee for five years. He was also a Habitat for Humanity Volunteer.
Bob expanded Duplexking in 2011 with adding business partner: Chris Carrow. He believed adding a second-generation partner was meaningful to his real estate practice, enabled DuplexKing to continue serving the community, and was reflective of what he accomplished over the last nearly fifty years. Chris is ranked in the top 10% of agents worldwide at Coldwell Banker Realty joining the Minneapolis Lakes Office in 2003 where he successfully provides his client’s full-time, full-service real estate. Having completed numerous multi-family transactions and owning investment property himself, he was a perfect fit. Raised in the Tyrol Hills neighborhood of Golden Valley, Chris is a graduate of the University of Minnesota. As a lifelong area resident, his clients trust his knowledge of the Twin Cities and value his real estate expertise.
DuplexKing was formed nearly 50 years ago to focus-on and serve, owner-occupant and individual real estate investors. We bring a wealth of experience to the Twin Cities market in addition to our knowledge of owning and managing investment property ourselves.More About Us
