My husband and I had a great experience working with Tara! She was responsive, knowledgeable and fun to work with. Her professionalism and expertise made us feel comfortable and at ease. We used Tara to sell our home (quickly), and purchase our new home. From day we listed to the day we closed, she  was organized and informative. We highly recommend to all friends/family buying (or selling) in the twin cities area!

Jamie was extremely knowledgeable about the investment property market that we were interested in. We felt very comfortable working with her. She was knowledabke, professional and was an excellent communicator. She always replied to any and all calls and messages very promply. Which was very  important to us because we were shopping for a new investment property in a very competitive market. The closing went seamlessly and she even helped entertain our toddler while we went over the closing documents. Overall she made our home buying experience feel effortless and fun! I can’t wait to work with her again when we buy our next investment property.

I loved working with Kate to buy our house. She was always available and flexible with our busy schedules, very knowledgeable of all things real estate and able to explain things well. Felt like I could trust her 100%. I recommend her to everyone!

– Hannah E.

Cara was the fourth realtor we met with and the first one we clicked with. We’re first time home buyers and she absolutely felt like our advocate at every step – guiding us through this whole process with integrity, transparency and attentiveness. Cara was available to us for questions and concerns  from the first day we met her all the way to closing day. Thanks to her insights on important topics like school districts, home values and estimating home improvement/repair costs, we were able to make a confident and informed decision. She has an obvious passion for what she does and is such a genuine and fun person to work with. In short, we feel we were able to find and close on the perfect home thanks to Cara

Kelsey was very knowledgeable and helpful for our first experience buying a home! She was very responsive and flexible. She made it an easy first time experience and we would highly recommend her!!

– Brook H.

Kevin is an amazing and patient realtor that will go above and beyond for you. He is very flexible on meetings and is willing to negotiate. All in all, I’d highly recommend to anyone.

– Elva Q.

Karin was great! We weren’t sure we wanted to sell at first and had lots of questions. She was available to answer all our questions and give us some comforting words to keep us on track. We decided to proceed with selling and Karin seemed like she was always able to respond to us within minutes,  no matter what time of day. Very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking (and we we looking all over the metro). Karin helped us make several offers on different houses and eventually land our beautiful home. We have been recommending Karin to our friends looking to sell and/or anyone who is interested in starting the process.

Amy went above and beyond my expectations all across the board. She made the experience of buying my first home so much less intimidating and put me at ease throughout the process. Amy is also an excellent communicator and is extremely knowledgable—she was a huge resource to me and answered my  many, many questions. : ) I don’t know what I would have done without her. Five stars all around!
