Bruce Rydeen

Please describe your role with CERRON in ten words or less.
Helping business owners to buy, sell or lease commercial property.

What inspires and/or motivates you in what you do with APPRO and CERRON?
Seeing our clients grow and do well. It is also a lot of fun to learn what companies do and the niches these owners find to fill and create new businesses.

What is something people might be surprised to know about you?
I haven't always sold commercial real estate. "In my former life," I worked for various companies including Purina and AgriPro in Sales, Marketing, and Management roles taking me to St. Louis, Missouri and the Phillipines, before returning to Minnesota.

What is your favorite sport (to cheer on or to play)?

Car racing.

What is your favorite quote?
"Tall Hat, No Cattle!"

What do you do outside of the office for fun?
Every project, every client is unique and to be able to partner with that particular client for a period of time is exciting and fresh to me.

What do you do outside of the office for fun?
Spending as much time as possible with my grandsons, and farming.

Where is one place you have not been, but would really like to go?

There are a lot of places I have been fortunate to visit over my lifetime, and still many more "bucket list" places on my wish list. I would enjoy sharing more with you when we next meet!

Bruce Rydeen is hard working and combines his strong work ethic, expertise, and team building skills as an effective leader and mentor for our staff. Bruce brings great insight to our team meetings, and goes to great lengths to bring deals together, always looking for ways to make the sometimes "improbable" or even "impossible" come together. Outside of our walls, Bruce has had significant involvement in our local community including a past role as Chair at the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce. 

As a business owner or investor, you will meet Bruce when you need assistance purchasing or leasing a new property. As a property owner,  you will work with Bruce to lease space in your building, or to sell your building to a new owner/user or investor(s). You may also connect with Bruce at local community events, as Bruce is an active Chamber of Commerce member in many of the communities we serve: LakevilleApple ValleyBurnsvilleDakota County (including the cities of Eagan, Farmington, Lilydale, Mendota, Mendota Heights, Rosemount, Sunfish Lake, and West St. Paul, along with Castle Rock, Empire, Eureka, and Hampton Townships), and Elko New Market, Minnesota.

Bruce enjoys following and attending car racing events, spending time working on his family farm in Stillwater, and if you ask him about his grand kids, just watch his face light up! I think you might be hard pressed to find a prouder grandparent (although other grandparents in our office may disagree, ha!). He is quick to share the latest pics, videos, or anecdotes. Bruce is a valued member of our APPRO and CERRON property solutions team.
