"From the beginning, I really enjoyed working with Tara! I felt like I Could really trust her to help me on a journey towards what felt like a HUGE financial decision. It felt like she had my best interests at heart and as a first time home buyer, that meant the world to me.
When I first started shopping, I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted or how to navigate the process. Tara was really patient, helpful, and supportive as I shopped around and figured it out. She helped me understand what to consider when looking at different properties (HOA fees, taxes, etc...) that may be obvious to some, but new to first time home buyers like me! In the end, Tara helped me purchase a home that’s perfect for me right now.
I’ll be recommending Tara to everyone I know, but especially first time home buyers! Having a realtor I could trust has made all the difference."

"Leah is a great realtor, she is a real people person, she's down to earth and easy to talk with. She posses great patience which is so key in the nerve wracking adventure of home buying. She's very transparent, I never questioned if she was looking out for my best interest and that helped to make my purchase a really wonderful experience.
Leah was great with helping to get inspection scheduled and was with me through the whole process. She took care of dropping of my escrow cashiers check for me, was great with negotiating the terms taking many key factors into consideration.
I have no complaints regarding any of the staff that I dealt with, they were all courteous, helpful, and remained very professional yet personable."
Elizabeth S. Hutchinson (Buyer) Tue, 22 Jun 2021 03:30:25 +1000
"I was so impressed with Matt and his fast and competitive work towards the house when we found the one we wanted. He immediately pounced on it and was very good at getting us to where we needed fast. And that meant working at night and into the weekend. That kind of support does not go unseen or overlooked. You could tell his relationship with Bill (onward) and then his experience as a realtor was the only way we got the house of our dreams in this current state of chaos. We live in a beautiful house and sold our house at a high price as a direct result working with Matt and Brandon. And most importantly I trust them with their expertise. Their humor. People that you know would be your friends if you could be as cool as them"
Anna Engelhart Minneapolis (Buyer) Sun, 20 Jun 2021 12:33:53 +1000
"We bought our first home with Matt over a decade ago. Returning to him to help with the sale of this home and purchasing our next home was a no brainer. He was patient, well-versed on the market, and offered us helpful guidance when it came to preparing our home for sale. He tolerated our rambunctious 2 year old as well, which was a bonus! We have strong trust in Matt and offer our highest recommendation without reservation."
Nora & Mike, Minneapolis (Buyer) Fri, 18 Jun 2021 12:06:26 +1000

"We selected Matt over the other Brokers that we met with because of the analytical approach that he took towards selecting a listing price, the comprehensive marketing strategy that was included for the the commission, and his experience. We also appreciated that he made us feel confident in our listing, but did not oversell us or make it seem like the sale was a given. There were other brokers who took this approach because of the current market, which made us question the level of effort they would put into getting us the most money for our house."
Katie Wilson (Seller) Sat, 29 May 2021 03:08:35 +1000
You have been like a counselor to Craig and I.
Thank you for helping us understand our options.
We will see you around the neighborhood and call when Craig gets another wild hair."

"Kevin Schmid was an excellent agent to work with as a first-time homebuyer. I really appreciated working with him through the process because he was knowledgeable and honest but never pushy or condescending. As a first-time homebuyer, I felt lots of pressure from other agents but didn't sense that when working with Kevin. He helped me understand the whole process and was always patient with my list of questions and concerns. His communication was always quick and effective and on very short notice, was able to help me with potential opportunities. For these reasons, I would, without a doubt, recommend Kevin Schmid to future home buyers."

"Working with Dena was an absolute pleasure. Her expertise was critical to the success in securing our dream home. Every step of the way - from introductions almost a year ago through final closing and one-off texts with questions we had (there were a lot!) were always met with friendliness, professionalism, and offered peace of mind. Dena made an otherwise stressful process so smooth, it's unbelievable. Throughout moments of anxiety and uncertainty, I was always comforted knowing that we had Dena in our court. With her guidance we secured our dream home. There is no way that would have happened without her. Bottom line - DENA IS THE BEST!!!"
Andrew, Minneapolis (Buyer) Tue, 25 May 2021 00:55:09 +1000
"Dena is AMAZING! As first-time home-buyers, she really took the time and care to explain the process and how everything works. Not only that, but she helped us navigate a crazy real estate market and we now have the home of our dreams. I really appreciated her attention to detail during showings and her down-to-earth attitude and real approach. She's such a fun and kind person and made this home buying experience truly enjoyable. Dena is the best!"
Hannah Bakke, Crystal (Buyer) Mon, 17 May 2021 23:31:36 +1000
"Dena is the best. This is my third time going through the process with her and I can’t imagine ever going another route. No need. Dena is the coolest!!"

"Had a lot of anxiety yet Matt and his team were so amazing and built full trust throughout with stellar communication and comprehensive support from beginning to end. We felt valued and cared for from the moment the process began through the sale.
Tara’s consulting allowed us to have the house photo ready. Heather’s knowledge, sensible advice, and insightful feedback helped us move from talking about selling the house to SOLD! Could not have sold the house without them!!
My husband is recently retired and we had a lot of worries on our plate when this all began. Matt and his team are beyond consummate professionals, they are heaven sent!! Raving fans of Matt Barker!!"

"Matt Barker was prompt in responses, created a marketing plan that his team executed as laid out. He was knowledgeable about the value of our home compared to those in the area, and did his research prior to meeting with us. I would recommend Matt due to his reliability and expertise within the real estate market arena."
Kami Reid, Oakdale (Seller) Wed, 17 Feb 2021 07:02:29 +1000
"Dena has a great sense of humor and is such a fun person to be around. She makes the buying process so much less stressful. Her knowledge and attention to detail is the absolute best. There is no one else you'd rather have in your corner. When showing a house, she pays attention to the windows, mechanicals, etc. so that her buyers can focus on making sure they feel at home.
She was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the process for my Type A personality. She was patient and willing to show us as many houses as it took to find our forever home. Her experience helped us to put in a competitive, yet reasonable offer that beat out multiple other offers and ultimately got us our house."
Megan Marchwick, Stillwater (Buyer) Tue, 26 Jan 2021 08:53:58 +1000
"Matt Barker was absolutely fantastic - he was patient, knowledgeable, experienced. He was responsive and available as well as reassuring. He delivered. He was honest yet always optimistic. His effort was beyond what we ever could have expected. His performance was excellent.
Overall we were VERY satisfied and will absolutely be working with Matt Barker in the future. I have sung his praises to friends and family."
Baulekes, Prior Lake, MN (Seller) Wed, 13 Jan 2021 04:53:16 +1000
"Matt Barker is an amazing negotiator. He was able to get amazing results for us with the sale of our home. We ended up selling for 20,000 over asking price. When our buyer came up with a list of demands after the inspection that would have been impossible for anyone to meet, he helped talk the buyer down. We only had to do a reasonable amount of repairs from the long list because of Matt's calm, reasonable, and inarguable demeanor. He also helped us navigate an incredibly stressful legal property dispute with a unstable and very entitled neighbor who was bent on sabotaging the sale of our home. Matt helped us every step of the way with real estate lawyer recommendations, calming our fears, and being available whenever questions came up. He was our rock during this incredibly stressful legal battle."
Lara Hammer, Minneapolis MN (Seller) Fri, 08 Jan 2021 06:34:37 +1000
"Matt was extremely helpful and knowledgable of all aspects of the sale of our old house and the purchasing of our current home. Our situation was a bit unique because we were moving because of a negative relationship with a neighbor and Matt helped us navigate everything that came with that: he guided us through the neighbor demanding easements, having property disputes, attempting to weaponize animal control and the police against us, trying to take part in the sale of our house, impeding the sale of our house, scaring off buyers, etc.., which resulted in us getting restraining orders. It was an extremely challenging time and Matt acted as a rock for us even when we knew that our situation was asking him to go above and beyond. Our situation made us feel like a burden and Matt and his team made us feel otherwise. We are very satisfied and wouldn't consider hiring anyone other than Matt and his team to help us in the future, though distant future since we are very satisfied with our current location."
Will Dockendrf (Seller) Sat, 02 Jan 2021 14:03:13 +1000
"Michael Sullivan was so helpful when looking for a home, he provided as much knowledge, great tips, and info about homes to help with our decision's. He was always upfront with what he thought on home, and provided good feedback. He never made us feel forced into anything, and took his time with us making this process go smooth, even during this competitive time. I'm so happy we got to work with him!"
Cierra Davis, Brooklyn Park/St. Michael (Buyer) Thu, 24 Dec 2020 03:49:21 +1000
"It was a pleasure working with Matt. He was very professional & respectful and gave us a wide berth to make our own decisions - Matt was never pushy or fake. The selling process can be a roller coaster of emotion so you need someone calm, steady and knowledgeable like Matt in your corner. Thanks for everything!"
KA Tong, Minneapolis (Seller) Sun, 20 Dec 2020 04:37:20 +1000
"Matt Barker was fantastic to work with. He is super knowledgeable and I always felt like our best interests were being put first. The marketing plan for our house went above and beyond, and I know our house was listed where todays buyers are searching. Further, Matt had the data to show that the plan was getting the desired results. I can't recommend Matt and the team at Barker Hedges enough!"
Megan Marchwick, Stillwater, MN (Seller) Tue, 15 Dec 2020 05:44:38 +1000

Thank you!"

"I felt comfortable with Matt Barker as our realtor because my brother has worked with Matt on several occasions. Matt proved to be the perfect fit for us to sell our dads condominium. He was honest, open, supportive and professional. He came to meet us at the condominium and was willing to “mask up” because of Covid. He suggested the marketing strategy and kept in good communication. I am very pleased with the results.
All excellent! Will be calling on Matt Barker the next time we are looking for a realtor. The condominium looked beautiful in the pictures. Lionheart (recommended by Matt) was easy to work with and designed the unit wonderfully.
I would definitely recommend Matt Barker to friends and family. He made the process of selling our dad’s condominium much easier even during Covid! He was knowledgeable in the process, pricing, marketing and negotiating. Matt was professional, honest and very understanding of the decisions my brother and I had to make for our dad. I really can not think of anything to change with the process of selling the condo. So blessed. Thanks again Matt!"
Heather Carlson, Edina & Cologne (Seller) Thu, 29 Oct 2020 06:51:26 +1000

"Tara Buck was super helpful with the selling of our current home, and purchasing our dream home. Tara was knowledgeable in pricing our house at a competitive price, which helped it sell fast for an above asking price. All the transactions went smoothly. If ever needed, we will definitely use Tara Buck again!"

"Leah Cousins was a great agent for me and my family. She was very understanding, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable of the process of buying a home. Leah was very patient with my family, we didn't feel pressured and she made sure she communicated with us early and often. When I was ready to give up and was thinking that I would not find what I wanted Leah was patient and adjusted my searches based on what we wanted instead of forcing something on us that we didn't want. Showing homes she knew what to look for with appliances and maitenance and checked things I wouldnt have. She gave honest feedback and show us what to look for in every showing. Once we found our home and made an offer, she explained everything in great detail, there was nothing I signed that she did not go over line from line. She has a great personality therefore it made it very easy to work with her and I felt very comfortable with her to ask questions. I would recommend Leah as she was there for us from the beginning of the process until the end and even after. I am so appreciative to have met and had Leah to work with she help make this process for my family so much easier."
Shaniya A. -Oakdale, MN (Buyer) Wed, 21 Oct 2020 01:14:11 +1000

"Brandon Hedges is a phenomenal agent. He was a thoughtful advisor who gave deep consideration to all of our diligence items during the buying process. He treated our purchase as if it were his own and we cannot recommend his services more strongly. Brandon is the right representative to have on your side during such a key purchase."
Austin B, Grant, MN (Buyer) Thu, 17 Sep 2020 10:45:15 +1000
"We were first time home buyers and were feeling pretty lost about the whole process. Mike was very transparent, very honest, and was able to walk us through every step of the way. He was punctual and had everything done in a timely manner. He also has a great, friendly personality. He was on top of everything and was able to guide us into our first offer being accepted! I highly recommend Mike."

Adam Schultz, Cottage Grove (Buyer) Wed, 02 Sep 2020 06:13:29 +1000
"Leah Cousins helped us find our first home. It was uniquely challenging for us, given that we were in Duluth and could only come down for property showings in Minneapolis on the weekends. On top of that, there's the pandemic, and a crazy housing market! We were overwhelmed by the logistics of shopping and closing, but Leah helped us through it all. She went above and beyond coordinating multiple showings in a day, so we could minimize our travel to and from Minneapolis. She got a sense of our tastes very quickly and showed us lots of interesting properties. When we wanted to make an offer, she was able to put together an offer extremely quickly, which is important when there are lots of potential buyers. Overall, she made the process feel safe. We felt like informed, confident buyers with her at our side. Highly recommended!"
Nik and Anna, Minneapolis (Buyer) Wed, 02 Sep 2020 04:16:12 +1000
"Matt called me soon after my internet request. I did not get a call from a telemarketing screener but from Matt personally. I know he is a very busy guy but he always took plenty of time.
As I reviewed each characteristic, I tried to not have all excellent marks. But, I realized Matt did excel in all of them. I have done many surveys over the years and this is the first that a good rating would have felt too low.
Staci did an excellent job also. We had a couple of small glitches but they got fixed quickly and accurately. With all the closings at the end of the month and Covid doing its thing, she kept ahead of schedule and closing was ready early and completed on time.
As an out of town seller for an estate, I didn't know how to price the home. I had communicated with several buyers and agents. After talking with Matt and looking at his marketing numbers, it gave me the confidence to list the home at a much higher price than I thought. Matt was right! We had many showings and offers and a signed contract on the 4th day."

Thank you! The Marsh’s"

"Brandon did a great job helping us find a wonderful property within tight geographic limits. He was available to us whenever we needed him in spite of our being on the west coast.
Brandon is a smart negotiator and helped us get a great price for the property we finally selected.
The whole team at Barker Hedges are top professionals. We have used them on both the sell and buy side, a few years apart. I have already recommended them to a former colleague who also had a great experience. We will absolutely use them again in the future."
Dave Green, Woodbury (Buyer) Wed, 05 Aug 2020 05:16:02 +1000
"Matt Barker exceeded my expectations for selling my home during a pandemic! I appreciate the cohesive team approach, where I communicate with Matt as the key point person and he works with his team to ensure they reach out to me to complete all the other aspects of the sale from start to finish.
I recommend Matt because he is a great communicator, doesn’t over promise, and always delivers."
Mabel Houle, Mounds View Mn (Seller) Fri, 31 Jul 2020 12:05:38 +1000
"Matt met all of our critical and important needs. We brought Matt in over 10 months prior to listing our house to ensure we were working with someone on the same page as we were, and to give us advice on how best to prepare and stage our unique home for sale. As a result we were fully aligned on the timing and the vision as we proceeded. Matt had Tara come to the house very early in our preparation process, which REALLY helped put the project plan and timing in place to prepare our home for sale. This was critical for us to attain our desired timeline.
The marketing package Matt and his team put together for our home was outstanding. We took pictures and a drone video in the Fall when everything was in full bloom and then updated them in the Spring prior to listing. The pics, video and 3D tour were phenomenal and enabled us to totally showcase our home virtually, communicating through pictures the way we actually lived and what we enjoyed so much about our home and property.
We would highly recommend Matt Barker and his team to anyone, but especially to those who have a need for stellar marketing."
Steve and Deb Schreiner, Woodbury MN (Seller) Sun, 26 Jul 2020 02:56:28 +1000
"In the end, I chose Matt because he was the only broker I talked to who actually has an evidence-based plan for monitoring feedback and making decisions about price, offers, etc. These data were incredibly important to us as we decided how to market the property.
After having chosen Matt, I then became aware that he's a GREAT and very service-focused broker. I came for the evidence plan and stayed because Matt is very dedicated to client service. The sale was logistically difficult (Covid didn't help) but Matt patiently and insightfully guided me through the decisions we had to make to get the property sold. I am EXTREMELY impressed by how hard he worked to make sure I got the best price I could. I feel very lucky to have worked with a broker as great as Matt!"

In summary, Mike is a people person and truly cares about his clients' satisfaction."

Leah was friendly and helpful through out the months long process of finding a home. She maintained a professional nature while still being friendly and approachable. She responded quickly and fully to all of the questions I had, including the small easy questions I probably should have known on my own."

Alex Grey, Minneapolis (Seller) Thu, 30 Apr 2020 06:11:13 +1000
"I would highly recommend Matt Barker. I live 240 miles away from the Estate house in Maple Grove I was trying to sell. Matt took care of everything. He met me at the house, did a walk through, coordinated his 'stagger' person to be there that the same time. They spent 4 hours staging the house exactly how they wanted it to. House looked awesome and we had a tremendous amount of showings in a very short time. 2 months worth of showing in the first 10 days. We received an acceptable offer a short time later even with the Corona Virus going on.
Matt's staff are just like him. Honest, caring, hard working, and easy to communicate with.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone."

Steve Fritze - Mendota Heights (Seller) Thu, 12 Mar 2020 12:15:18 +1000
"I would personally like to thank Matt for his overall help during the selling of our home. Selling a home can be stressful. Even with the parts of it that the unavoidable stress may kick it you still put us at ease. I value how you involved us when needed and handled the behind the scenes stuff more than our previous realtor in the past. Despite the minor hiccups overall I feel that this process was very smooth. I’m hoping we set the bar high with beating your showings record (56 was it?) We wish you nothing but the best and you can consider this letter my firm hand shake and thank you for your help in this process. We would recommend your services in a heartbeat to friends and family in the future."

"Tara made the search for a home fun and enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable about the area. This is our first time buying a home and the thing I appreciate the most are the tips she gave us about location and even within the house. We loved working with Tara and appreciate all the hard work she did for us."

"Dena Hodnett is truly an outstanding realtor. When we decided to buy our second home there was no question that we would use her services. She has always been a strong advocate for our home needs, even when we are talking ourselves into something that might not be a great fit. We trust her judgment and value her opinion and that is priceless in a realtor. She is a knowledgeable professional but always brings the fun! Touring homes with her is always an adventure, and if we had to do it again we'd choose her in a second."

"Dena is just the best real state agent I ever worked with. She expected every aspect of my expectations. We landed at one of the best properties with best price. I would like to recommend Dena to everybody. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you, Dena. So lucky to know you and work with you.

She's patience has great taste and an extensive knowledge of the local area. She found the perfect place for me and knows what to look for and what not to.
Would definitely recommend working with Dena!"

"Matt Barker is excellent. Selling our home was a big decision for us, and he was patient and walked us through many different scenarios, offered timing suggestions, and gave us input on the market data on our home/neighborhood. This was very important as we wanted to consider every angle before moving forward. Matt was always available to answer our questions. All of this was greatly appreciated. He was willing to go the extra mile when things came up with showings and/or with buyer inquiries. He was genuine as we experienced some ups and downs as part of the process. Matt was on point through it all.
The overall experience was great as well. Because this decision was big, and emotional, for us, the team was patient and ready when we were. This was everything to us. We appreciated the guidance from staging to showings to offers and all the things in between. This was a complex process and Matt and the rest of the folks at Barker and Hedges Group were with us every step of the way. Matt and his team are high-performing, highly profession, and results-orientated. That's what we wanted in our agent. Though it was so hard to say goodbye to our first home together, you've helped us start a new chapter in our story; thank you for everything, Matt!"
Anne, Plymouth, MN (Seller) Thu, 14 Nov 2019 08:08:33 +1000
"Thanks for providing highly professional personal support and technology-based marketing tools to sell our home! The online resources provided great market insights, and local area service providers that Matt connected us with were excellent and made it easy and less stressful to get our home ready to be put on the market and staged. The data-driven analysis and follow-up provided during the weeks when our home was on the market was helpful to determine how we should price our home throughout the process and ultimately negotiate a final selling price. Matt and team are professional, trustworthy and respectful to all parties involved in the transaction and made a generally stressful process go very smoothly."
Steve & Karen Larson (Seller) Thu, 14 Nov 2019 03:14:45 +1000
"Dena was fabulous to work with; patient, relaxed, and funny. She adjusted easily and honestly to our "out front" personalities and never hesitated to go to bat for us during the more stressful situations. Her humor, attention to detail, advice, and enthusiasm made this experience much more comfortable and enjoyable for us both. If we need to buy again and she's still in the business, I look forward to working with her once more."
Donna Cook, Champlin (Buyer) Wed, 06 Nov 2019 10:30:52 +1000
"Matt Barker helped us navigate complex home purchase and sale transactions. He was thoughtful and kind as he guided us through every up and down. His insightful experience and sense of humor helped make this stress-inducing process much more enjoyable. We highly recommend Matt and his team’s services. Read on to see why we feel this way.
We found a house online and the 3D tour made us want to see it. We called the listing agent, who happened to be Matt Barker. We met Matt at the showing. He was friendly, and knowledgeable, respectful, and we felt he was genuinely trustworthy. We loved the house, and wanted Matt to represent us, knowing the potential risks of negotiating with a dual-agent. Matt did not let us down. He did an excellent job explaining and teaching us the purchasing steps to get the best deal for us. His recommendations for other professionals (inspections, financing contact, etc.) were great choices too. Matt got both sides through the closing with smiles all around.
Next, we had to sell our existing home. We were pleased to hear that Matt knew our old neighborhood just as well as our new neighborhood. We trusted him a second time to market our home. Matt did an amazing job. He recommended creating a 3D tour of our home, which was a key component in the sale. Our buyers shared that their love for our home started when they were able to explore every inch online. Once again Matt walked us through the much more complicated process of navigating the sale. He was with us every step of the way, available when we needed him, and always made us feel respected. He kept his team informed, and when Matt was out of town, we felt fully comfortable and trusted the advice of Brandon Hedges, Matt’s business partner. Our sale and closing went just as smoothly as our purchase.
Thank you Matt!"

"When we moved from Los Angeles to Roseville, Matt and Brandon were awesome. We knew there was no point in looking for another team to help us sell the place they got us into, and find us a new one."

Charlene Walker, Fridley (Buyer) Sat, 31 Aug 2019 05:48:28 +1000
"Dena and Brandon provided top notch industry knowledge and wrote the winning offer on my new home! Dena takes time to understand what it is you want and are looking for, and asks the hard questions when she thinks you are starting to settle. Her goal is to get you into the house that you FEEL is your new home."
Darlene Wallner, Woodbury, MN (Buyer) Fri, 30 Aug 2019 02:53:04 +1000
"Matt's real estate knowledge was apparent in how to market my duplex; it wasn't a normal home, and he still managed to get me SEVEN offers in 3 days of showings. I told him I was hoping for 5 showings. We had that many scheduled before the house even officially hit the market. Could not have been happier with the result!"
Darlene Wallner, Whoville (Woodbury), MN (Seller) Fri, 30 Aug 2019 02:05:58 +1000
"Matt did a phenomenal job walking my husband and I through the entire process of selling our home. He was always available when we had questions, and he made sure we felt comfortable every step of the way. We could not have asked for a better experience in selling our first home — we were very pleased! 100% would recommend Matt and his team to our friends and family."
Allie Busch, Chanhassen (Seller) Wed, 28 Aug 2019 11:37:41 +1000

"Brandon Hedges was simply phenomenal in all aspects of my home search and purchase. He even continued to help with advice after closing, which I really appreciated. I was repeatedly impressed with his politeness, patience, candor, attention to detail and the vast knowledge and experience he brings to his work. I will definitely be working with Brandon and his team in the future."

Lori Hoffman, Minneapolis (Seller) Thu, 13 Jun 2019 07:05:28 +1000
"Matt and his team are excellent to work with! I appreciated their knowledge, lguidance and quick responses during the selling/buying/closing process. I will definitely recommend to family or friends. Selling/Buying/Moving is incredibly stressful. When you have a team of excellent people working on your behalf, you can focus your attention and energy on something else. Thanks Matt, Jordan, Suzanne, Heather and Stephanie!"
Kay Leflay, Burnsville (Seller) Sat, 08 Jun 2019 00:24:08 +1000
"Working with Dena Hodnett was truly a joy. She was always supportive and understanding. We had so much fun and when we needed to be, serious. Dena Hodnett is a true professional and without her knowledge and guidance this experience would have been so much more difficult. Thank you."
Candie Lyell, Rosemount (Buyer) Sat, 25 May 2019 10:56:56 +1000
"Tara was phenomenal! It was my first time buying a home and she did a really great job answering all of my questions and making me feel like it was all going to work out even when times got tough with the buying process. I would highly recommend Tara, especially for nervous first-time homebuyers!"
Chelsea Siegfried, Minneapolis (Buyer) Sat, 18 May 2019 04:21:59 +1000
"Mike is a fantastic realtor. He's extremely knowledgeable about the market and he goes the extra mile for his clients. There were plenty of times I didn't think I would be closing on the house I now own, but thanks to Mike we were able to manage a challenging sale. Mike put in plenty of long hours and even went out of his way to go down to the city hall to get paperwork to help support my sale. If Mike wasnt involved with this transaction I don't think I would own this house today. He was absolutely crucial in negotiating the sale and letting me walk away feeling like I got a good deal.
Mike is very knowledgeable about a lot of the first-time home buyer programs and was able to provide a lot of really good feedback walking through the different homes in terms of what he felt they would appraise for, pointing out concerns or areas for improvement in the homes, and having good insight into what offers to make to make myself competitive in a challenging Market. I would for sure recommend Mike, as well as Remax results, for any first-time home buyers who are just starting to learn to navigate the process of buying a home."
Jessica W, West st paul (Buyer) Wed, 08 May 2019 00:47:54 +1000
"Dena worked really well with understanding my needs and my husbands (especially when they were a little different) There were a lot of houses I had to look at without my husband and she did an amazing job really making sure his vision wasn't lost. She could not have done a better job working with us and making everything so crystal clear!"
Paige Mallinger, Blaine (Buyer) Fri, 19 Apr 2019 11:42:36 +1000
"Matt uses marketing techniques that target specific individuals and groups of people. We saw the results.
Matt Barker took control of the process once we received an offer, managed the negotiation and while I know people often just say polite things, I mean it when I say Matt made the process easy and probably more important, sold the home for the listed amount.
I'm very appreciative of his effort and the result."
Sean Wagstaff, Prior Lake, MN (Seller) Fri, 19 Apr 2019 08:29:52 +1000
"Mike was always available to answer my questions when I needed him he was very helpful in all matters always pleasant
to talk to and always looking out for my interest as a buyer.
I would recommend Mike any time he is great to work with always friendly
And willing to go that extra mile for you."
