Hello! My name is Michael Jorgensen. I moved from Shoreview to the Brainerd Lakes Area in 1997. I have enjoyed living and working in the area for the past twenty-five years. I was married in 2010 to Makyla Orth and we have one daughter.
My wife’s family has owned Gilchrist Realty for the past forty-five years with Michael Orth as the broker. I started in Real Estate in 2014, and in 2020, I became the full time broker and owner.
I specialize in lake homes, acreages, waterfront, farm, hobby and hunting land. It is especially satisfying to walk a property, and assist buyers and sellers with negotiating a sale.
I look forward to meeting and building a strong relationship with you whether you are buying or selling a property. Let’s find the perfect place for you and start making your dreams a reality in the Lakes Area.

Our house has officially SOLD. It was quite the long wait but we are so thankful for all of God’s blessings and His perfect timing. Thank you to our AMAZING realtor and everything he has done for us (including wrangling our goats back in the fence after their first escape) and everyone at Gilchrist Realty. Thank you Mike J!
Mike of Gilchrist Realty did an excellent job in a tough and emotional situation. My step-kids live out of town and out of state. Mike met with us to help them get their dad's house on the market and talked us through the whole process. Professional, honest, reliable, and committed to great customer service!
Mike has always taken the time to show us homes that we have been interested in seeing. We are grateful for the work he has been willing to put in to help us make our dreams a reality.
We appreciated Mike’s professional efforts to sell our lot on Gull lake. The research and marketing he provided were spot on. Thank you very much!
Things about Mike that were really helpful and impressive were:
• He has extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and narrowed in on what we needed to do to get the house ready to sell.
• He has extensive contacts and did arrange to get things done very quickly.
• Whenever we called or texted him, he was always available or would quickly get back to us.
• When issues came up he always jumped in and dealt with them quickly and effectively.
We highly recommend Mike Jorgensen.
