I’m happy to introduce myself as a REALTOR® for Viking Real Estate and the Proud Owner of Calling All Paws Pet Grooming in Mankato.  My name is Jillian Cousins.  I am a Mankato native and I now reside just outside of St. Clair MN with my husband Chris Cousins, and 3 children Coral, Braydon, and Waylon.

We share our home with our long haired Dachshund Alfie, our adopted cat Bella, several farm cats, a great farm dog Bender and Steve our Bulldog!

My love for animals stems from a childhood of growing up on my Grandparents horse farm.  We had many horses, barn cats and always a dog!

I first started grooming almost 18 years ago when I answered a newspaper classified ad.  Now that I own my own salon, I am able to take a step back and concentrate Real Estate which has been a long-time passion of mine.

I am the type of REALTOR that will listen to your wants and needs so I can help you find the home of your dreams.  I am willing to take the time to make sure that no stone is left unturned. Whether you are buying or selling I am the REALTOR® for you.
