Dan Bonne, Broker & Owner of THE BROKERAGE real estate co., has extensive knowledge of the Twin Cities real estate market, and continues to push the envelope in client experience and home marketing. It was his dissatisfaction with the stale real estate industry and complacency in many of the big-box brokerage models, that gave him the desire to launch THE BROKERAGE in early 2018.
Dan’s ability to analyze the market, current trends, and many investment opportunities has set him apart from competition. His experience in corporate risk management, and his corporate sales training with leading medical device sales companies, enables Dan to understand the needs of each client, and develop an approach that gets results — because after all, each client and property is unique.
Though Dan’s primary focus is waterfront and luxury homes in the Twin Cities, Dan is involved with deals of many shapes and sizes, and utilizes his wide network of industry experts and team of real estate consultants.
Dan grew up in White Bear Lake and graduated from Bethel University with a degree in Marketing & Finance. Dan lives in the White Bear Lake area with his wife, Danielle, and their three children; Avery, Greta & Griffin. He and his family enjoy many outdoor activities, trying new restaurants around the cities, and traveling as much as possible.
Whether you are looking to buy, sell, rent, or invest — Dan, and his team at THE BROKERAGE, looks forward to making it a fun and seamless experience.

Dan Louismet specializes in buying and selling real estate in the City of White Bear Lake, and the surrounding communities of White Bear Township, Mahtomedi, Dellwood, Grant, North Oaks, Hugo, and Vadnais Heights. Because Dan’s focus is relatively narrow in geographic scope, Dan can offer a much deeper level of insight into the market conditions in these select communities.
Dan completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota and went on to attend law school at William Mitchell College of law. Dan is a full-time practicing attorney in the State of Minnesota. His legal background offers clients a unique perspective not found with other realtors.
Dan was born and raised in White Bear Lake where he still lives today with his wife, Molly, and daughter, Frankie.
