CENTURY 21 Brainerd Realty, Inc.

Smarter, Bolder, Faster

Our company’s roots date back to 1946 when the real estate office of Ruttger & Ruttger first opened in the Brainerd Lakes Area. In 1977, the company became the first CENTURY 21 franchise in Northern Minnesota. CENTURY 21 Ruttger & Ruttger then merged with Brainerd Realty, taking the current name in 1996. More recently, in 2013, the company adjusted the ownership. Four of the previous owners, (all with over 35 years of local real estate experience), are still actively working here in real estate! Jim Ruttger, who was with the company in 1977, is currently the Broker / Co-owner along with Linda Steffen.

At CENTURY 21 Brainerd Realty, we pride ourselves in putting our clients first! In 2015 CENTURY 21 ranked “highest overall satisfaction for first-time and repeat home buyers and sellers, three years in a row” by J.D. Power. Overall, CENTURY 21 is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. Nationally, our website is the most visited real estate franchise web site.

We leverage all of this knowledge, experience and commitment to help our agents provide exemplary service on a day-to-day basis. This makes it easier for our agents to have a more successful, satisfying career. We haven’t even talked about the advantages our technological tools have over the competition!
