WolfNet’s been in the game for over 20 years and is a pioneer in the real estate industry. Our bread and butter is Responsive IDX property search, beautiful IDX websites, property search plugins and MLS data services – all backed by outstanding implementation and ongoing support. If you’re an agent, broker or technology provider looking to lead the pack, you’re in the right place.
To provide trusted, innovative services for the real estate industry that inspire creativity and generate measurable success.
I started this company back in 1996 with an entrepreneurial spirit and gusto. Who knew it would transform into an international organization providing technology to over 80,000+ customers. I’ve said it many times but want to echo my previous statements, my people are what make the difference and drive the modern technology and exceptional customer service we deliver every day. I focus on managing the larger business, creating the vision for our product and market strategies, consulting with clients and generally connecting with the real estate industry. In reality, I have my hands in just about everything as I have an open door policy where anyone can bring in ideas for the organization. I’m an exercise junkie, believe in perpetual optimism and love the Minnesota Wild. Most importantly, I love spending time with my wife, three kids and two goofy dogs.
I am the Chief Operations Officer, or as I like to call it, the “Organizer of Chaos”. Whether it is representing the Pack at a tradeshow, composing process documentation or implementing new software for our company, I do whatever it takes to help our staff be at the top of their game. My experience in MLS, administration, sales, and project management helps me work with our extremely talented executive and management teams to ensure our organization is a well-oiled machine.
My time outside of the office is spent with my loving husband, three awesome kids and two loyal dogs.

I started with WolfNet in 2011 as a senior developer and bring over 20 years of internet technology experience to the company. As IT Manager, I manage the day-to-day affairs of the development and database teams.

Customer Service Manager
I am the Customer Service Manager and I bring 15 years of experience to WolfNet in Customer Service, Technical Support and building Training programs. I am always more than willing to go the extra mile and I have a high drive to develop a “Customer First Focus” atmosphere.

Business/ HR Manager
Lee has been WolfNet’s Business Manager since September 1999. She and her team expertly perform all accounting and HR functions. Perhaps more important to the staff, Lee’s team also organizes all company events, parties and happy hours! Lee was formerly a paralegal specializing in franchising and distribution as well as intellectual property. Lee holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota.
Director of Product Development
As the Director of Product Development, my focus is on strategizing for the future of WolfNet’s suite of products. In addition, my role includes project execution, resource management, training and process development. Most of my time is spent staring at, thinking about, talking about, and analyzing product roadmaps, backlogs and project plans.
As the Chief Technology Officer at WolfNet, my primary focus is keeping all of our systems functioning exactly as our clients expect 24/7/365. There are a lot of moving parts with respect to WolfNet’s technology stacks and I enjoy working with our teams to come up with innovative solutions that perform the very best for our clients. Even with over 20 years working in IT, I learn something new every week and we have such fantastic technology teams that keep me feeling more young and invigorated than I have a right to feel.
Outside of work I am an avid alpine skier, rock climber, motorcycle rider and sports fan. I enjoy traveling to the mountains with my lovely wife, Shannon, where we do a lot of hiking, camping and find enjoyment in the great outdoors.
Our Roots & Evolution
Who knew two computers sitting on a dining room table would soon become the company it is today. With the help of his older brother, our fearless leader/CEO Joel MacIntosh started out from his garden level double bungalow – lovingly called “The Dungeon” (a.k.a. the basement) – and acquired WolfNet’s first real estate client in 1997.
From there, through hard work and continued growth, WolfNet pivoted from a company that served more than 25 different industries (yes, we worked with a fish touring company!) to one solely focused on the real estate market. We launched our first IDX solution in 2000 right here in our home state of Minnesota.
We now service over 640 MLS markets across the United States and Canada.
