John Pecchia, Broker/Realtor/Owner

I am the owner of Welcome Home Productions, a full-service real estate company. I have been working as a Realtor, Property Manager, and home improvement expert for over 10 years, making me an asset to my real estate clients as they buy, sell, and rent out their homes. I prioritize relationships in order to understand the needs and wants of my clients and prefer to do business with friends. So, let’s go out for coffee and see if I can’t help you with your current housing needs.

Karin Pecchia, Stager/Realtor/Owner

It all started with a leopard print comforter that I knew I wanted before I even saw it. I was about to enter my freshman year of college and the thing I was fixated on most was decorating my bedroom (and definitely not the biology class I ended up failing…TWICE). While my taste in animal print has progressed (meaning, I wear it more often than use it as décor), my love for designing a space remains unchanged. Since my marriage to John 7 years ago, I have had the JOY of designing and decorating 5 of our own houses as well as assisting many of our real estate clients with their staging needs. John and I have had so much fun working together to meet the needs of our clients with our combination of skills and love for building relationships. We consider ourselves a full-service real estate company because there is nothing we won’t do to make your experience buying and selling a home the best it can be.

When we aren’t working (and sometimes when we are), we are hanging with our kiddos, Jemma (7) and Ruby (4), both of whom already exhibited the relational and vivacious qualities that define our family and our business.










Kate Smalkoski, Realtor

Kate's head shotWelcome Home!  I started my real-estate career with Welcome Home Productions back in 2013, and after taking a year to learn all that Keller Williams has to offer, I’m back HOME!

In addition to specializing in new construction, I work the entire Twin Cities metro area with both buyers and sellers and have experience with short sales and foreclosures.  My clients come first as I am passionate about helping to educate first-time home buyers as we walk through the home-buying process together.
When I’m not walking through homes, I’m a mother to two wonderful children, Alexis (9) and Paxton (7).  I enjoy volunteering and escaping with my husband of ten years, Jake, and our family to our cabin in Ely.  I cannot forget to mention the last member of our family, Miss Leia, our Goldendoodle, who is two years old and fully of love and spunk.

After working as a magazine editor and pastry chef, I landed at Welcome Home Productions in 2016. Since immersing myself in the business, I decided to broaden my real-estate horizons and become licensed! Now you can find me assisting John and Karin with contracts, office work, rentals, staging and listing prep, and I couldn’t be happier!
I spend most of my free time with my husband, Ben, our son Reuben and the family cats, Foxy and Blaze. I also enjoy music-inspired travel, cooking and reading most anything! I truly look forward to seeing my real-estate career bloom with Welcome Home Productions!
