During this past year of a crazy Minneapolis/St. Paul market, Jon helped us list both of our homes and buy a new one, and he did so with excellence, patience, and integrity. He demonstrated a great deal of knowledge about the market, went above and went beyond in terms of responsiveness and negotiation. He was also a wonderful calming presence during many ups and downs, and he had great expertise for the moments when things didn't go as we planned. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jon to anyone searching to buy or sell!
Buying a home by yourself is nerve wracking, but Jon was there for me every step of the way. If I had a question (and I had a lot), he never hesitated to find the answer. If I was worried or unsure, he was quick to give me all the information needed to ease my mind. If you are a first-time homebuyer Jon is your person!
We went into this process knowing little to nothing about how to purchase a home, but Jon went above & beyond in taking things slow and ensuring we understood next steps. He truly knows his stuff and you can tell he is passionate and excited about what he does. We would recommend Jon to anyone and everyone looking for a new home, or even if you just wanted to have a cup of coffee and learn about the home buying process, he is the guy to talk to! We're so grateful we got to work with him.
He acted as our confidante throughout the whole buying and selling transaction, giving advise but careful not to steer us one way or another unless we asked for his opinion. He listened to our needs from our point of view and did a great job. We are recommending Jon to all of the people we know looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks so much Jon.
Now that I have worked with Jon, I know why. I found Jon to be knowledgeable in the field of real estate. His stager was spot on and very helpful. His photographers took some very impressive pictures including areal ones. In fact he and his team did such an awesome job the house sold in a few days after listing. During the sales process, Jon kept me informed. He responded to my text message and emails so quickly it seemed he responded before I sent him the message. I would definitely recommend Jon to my family and friends and work with him again if the opportunity presented itself.
He helped us during our search by working with us for viewings and was able to point out potential concerns for each house. He was not aggressive, nor did he try to persuade us to look outside our budget. This was our first home purchase and he wanted to make sure we knew what was happening at each step of the way, answering questions we had and asking ones we didn't know we should ask.
He found us a house that fit our laundry list of needs (3 bed, 3 bath, 2 car garage, move in ready) in a cheaper price point than we were ever expecting! He was patient and answered all of our questions as first time home buyers and was quick to respond and negotiate on our behalf. We really felt that we could depend on Jon and trust him to do a great job. We recommend him to anyone.
The market was hot and extremely competitive, but Jon kept our heads level with his very approachable and empathetic personality. He’s easy to contact and very reliable. My wife, brother and I highly recommend!
Jon was genuinely on our team helping my fiance and me find the right home for us. He accommodated our schedule, was patient when we disliked houses for no good reason, and didn't pressure us at all. Working with him, it's clear that he's a man of integrity that wants what's best for his clients. Highly recommend.
I didn’t know him before the process of purchasing a home, but through the process he was easy to talk to and I would recommend him!
I have worked with other Realtors in the past and Jon was by far the best! I was very impressed! I really didn't expect my goals to be met but I told him what would be ideal and he made sure it happened! He really cares about his clients and their needs. He is a very special person! Thank you so much Jon for being there for us! You're awesome!!
Looking for house in this Market is hard and lots of work. But with Jon is was easy joyful experience. He was beyond description and it was the best choice to work with him. I would definitely recommend Jon!
Jon walked us through the process, answered our questions promptly, and was very accommodating when it came to closing. We are looking forward to Jon helping us find our next home in the near future.
He was honest and explained his thoughts and considerations to help me decide on a home through a realistic approach which I appreciated greatly knowing that I can sometimes overlook stuff. We explored different styles and conditions of homes and he was with me every step of the way. Jon's passion for his work is contagious and gets you amped for finding something of your own. He started as a friends father in law and ended as a friend and a lifelong connection for real estate. Would recommend Jon to anyone.
After the house sat on the market all fall while using another real estate company, I had it taken off the market and hired Jon to help me sell it. He spent time with me at the house and made recommendations for some simple updates (painting, new fixtures, etc.). Also, because it was empty he suggested doing some virtual staging so people looking online could see what it might look like with furniture. It looked great and very realistic! The house was put back on the market February 1st, we had an offer February 4th and closed March 5th! Not only was Jon a great realtor for me in getting my dad's house sold quickly, but he showed understanding and compassion for my sadness and mixed feelings in letting go of my parent's house.
He was extremely responsive, extremely respectful, and just an overall wonderful man!
He is always responsive, and has great insight into the market, even in this crazy real estate season. He was exceptionally helpful throughout the whole process, from selling one property to purchasing another.
He did an excellent job at talking me through the house shopping/buying process, and he answered all of my questions with patience and expertise. I was especially impressed with his "extra mile" of customer service as he sought to get to know my personal hopes for a home and worked with me to make it an experience that fit my life, needs, and schedule. I'm looking forward to continuing to recommend Jon to my network.
