Two years ago, Gary Anderson, a colleague of ours in the Coldwell Banker Burnet Minneapolis Lakes office, was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD), the most common form of dementia for people under 60. Due to the quick acting and debilitating disease, Gary was forced to retire early as a realtor.

Joining the fight against Frontotemporal Degeneration
Gary and Nanci Anderson with their Growing Family

This Spring, we invited Gary’s wife, Nanci, to join our sales team. Working full time as a vice president for a company and taking Gary’s former real estate business, Nanci is committed and hardworking (a Superwoman), both for her family and for our team. Needless to say, Gary’s diagnosis and progressive form of dementia was a shock to the family and has altered their lives radically. Nanci, along with her daughters, are fighters and hold regular events for the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) to raise awareness of the disease and funding for the organization. This fall, our team joined in the fight against Frontotemporal Degeneration with the Anderson family.

During the months of September and October, the Berg Larsen Group donated $100 to the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration with every new listing we put on the Twin Cities market. With the hard work of our team, we placed 17 homes for sale on the Twin Cities market. When November came, it was our great pleasure to present a check of $1,700 to the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration to help in the fight. This money will be used to fund research in the search for the cure to this destructive and aggressive disease as well as awareness of Frontotemporal Degeneration and the amazing efforts of the organization.

When it comes to selling your home, we know there are many options throughout the Twin Cities. With that, we’d like to thank our home sellers for working with our team and joining us in this fight against Frontotemporal Degeneration. Your commitment to selling your home with our professional realtors helped achieve a goal we are very proud of today. Thank you. Because without you there would be no us.
