Joe definitely went above and beyond in his duties as our Realtor. He took the time to ensure that all those extra touches were addressed and in place in the prepping of our house for the market. Without all the extra hours and effort that Joe and his great contacts at Coldwell Banker Burnet , Burnet Home Loans/PHH and Burnet Title; we would not be enjoying our new "Kasel" as stress free as we are.

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we were with the service you performed for us in the preparation and sale of our house. We also want to compliment you on your advising us on the proper pricing and the follow-up you did whenever we had a question.

My husband Michael accepted a new job and our family needed to relocate as quick as possible from Racine, WI to the Twin Cities. Joe was very knowledgeable and paid special attention to the entire families needs making this transition very smooth. Our family started looking for homes with Joe on a Saturday and by Tuesday we found and purchased our Dream "KASEL". We love it!!! Thank you, Joe!

Thanks for doing such a great job marketing our home in Arden Hills! It is hard to believe that it was only on the market for three days…we had four purchase agreements to choose from – all over our asking price. We will recommend your services to our friends and family.

Our neighbor Bill referred Joe to us after he sold his Mom's house in St. Anthony. We told our Relocation Co. that we wanted him to represent us too. We were worried because our house went on the market in December, backed up to Hwy 10 and had a pool. Joe had the home staged at his expense and my husband couldn't believe it was our house when he saw the photos/tours while at work in Rhode Island. It was even featured on Cable TV where one of the buyers saw it! Our home SOLD in only 22 days! Best Wishes to our *STAR* Realtor!

I worked with Joe on the sale of my mother's home in St. Anthony Village after someone referred that I call him. He was a great help in getting my home ready for sale and coaching me throughout the entire selling process. The outside services (subcontractors) he recommended were top notch. I truly believe this saved me money and got the home SOLD quickly! The house was only on the market 6 days and closed within a month. I can sincerely recommend Joe as a reliable, honest, hard working and very capable Realtor in the N.E. MPLS. area and surrounding communities.

We could of never accomplished our goals without your help! How often does a Realtor approach the owner of a home, not even listed on the market and successfully negotiate a purchase? Thereafter your persistence and patience made all the difference....We bought non-contingent on selling our home and your understanding of the stress we were under "owning" two homes meant a lot to us. The home we needed to sell was an upper bracket home in North Oaks. We thought about using a "big name" Realtor that specializes in North Oaks but made a conscious decision to go a different route. You and your Team at Coldwell Banker Burnet got right to work and your staging crew from Grand Entrance was awesome! Our home looked so good afterward I wasn't sure I wanted to move (but my wife still was!) Chef Tim featured some of his favorite appetizers for the Realtor Open House to get the word out and show off our Chefs' Kitchen. It was followed by your many Open Houses and the marketing was top notch; including an awesome on-line virtual tour of our home and a CD the potential buyers could take home. The buyers of our home admitted they looked at it multiple times a day even after they had written the purchase agreement. Best of all; you sold our home in only 82 days in a tough 2007 buyers market . The average market time was a year or more for homes listed in our price range. We are grateful to have a partner like you to help us through it all and we LOVE our "Limestone KASEL" on the Boulevard!"

Back in November of 2009, we decided to sell our town home. We interviewed a number of realtors, but chose to try and sell on our own, thinking we would save money. We put our house up For Sale By Owner at the beginning of February. After five weeks of trying to sell on our own, we realized it was time to hire a professional. While we had the most updated town home in the community, and a number of people interested, there seemed to be a hesitation for people to present an offer. Just before making this decision, we lowered our price, thinking this would help. We met with Joe and felt very comfortable with his approach. Immediately Joe took a number of steps to improve the marketability of our home including raising the price to our original asking price, hiring a professional photographer, and bringing in a professional stagger at no cost to us. He went above and beyond our expectations. In fact, within five days of hiring Joe, we had an offer for the price we were asking. In a normal market, this would have been impressive. Considering the difficult housing market, this is nothing short of a miracle! We were so impressed with the way Joe handled the sale, that we purchased our new home with him (and love it). We never thought we'd make a friendship out of the relationship with our realtor. Guess that's just an added perk! Thank you Joe for all of your time, effort, and prayers! Sincerely,

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for all your efforts on our behalf in the sale of our home in New Brighton May 2010. We know our house was a difficult one because of the swimming pool and $450,000 price point, but you managed through your marketing efforts to overcome these obstacles and get the job done. All of our friends & family members were very taken with the High -Definition virtual tour you put together, which was top notch all the way. Your willingness to have as many open houses as we were willing to put up with also had positive results. You attracted at least 2 other buyers who probably would have made an offer on our home once they sold their existing house. It's nice when negotiating to know there are other buyers out there, even if they're not immediately ready to purchase. We've sold other properties in the past and I can't think of any of them that were as well advertised as our home in New Brighton. A lot of listing agents talk the talk when it comes to spending money advertising but I have to say that you also walk the walk.You managed to get lots of bodies through our house during a time that many experts consider the worst market in a generation or more. If you can sell in this market I'm pretty confident you'll be doing very, very well when the market picks up. Thanks again Joe and the best of luck in the future. Regards,
- John & Judy, New Brighton, MN
In today's real estate market, Joe knows exactly what to do! Throughout the sales cycle, Joe was aware of my needs and he was an amazing advocate not only in initiating the offer and acceptance but all the way to closing . Joe knew how to market in NE MPLS so well that we were able to price the house and negotiate terms quickly and confidently. If it wasn't for his hard work, I wouldn't have sold my home. I was impressed with his selling process and keeping an eye on everything throughout the selling cycle. My home had a buyer within just 3 weeks and closed 2 months after it had been listed! I never felt unprepared and I couldn't’ be happier with the final results!
