Joe's experience and professionalism in the real estate industry is exceptional. As empty nesters, the thought of purchasing a new home and selling our longstanding family home was overwhelming at times. Joe kept us focused on our goals and guided us through this complicated process. It is without reservation that we recommend Joe Kasel and his team for selling and/or purchasing a home.

Joe is amazing to work with. He helped us get our dream home, and we could not be happier. He then helped us sell our home in a quickly changing market and over a summer holiday weekend. When a city inspection identified an unknown issue late in the sale, Joe’s expertise with real estate and people helped make a chaotic and stressful process calm. We highly recommend working with him to buy and sell your home!
- Andrea & Kjell
Thanks again Joe for helping me find a condo for my Mom. You are a Super Agent!
- Colette & Bob
Joe was very knowledgeable about the home buying process and assured me he would find me my Dream home. As a 1st time homebuyer in a very competitive market, I was initially very anxious about finding something since homes selling in a couple of days. Joe helped me find a great house sooner than I expected!
- Sarah A.
Working with Joe was a great experience! He is very knowledgeable in the real estate market. We were able to find the perfect place to make into my very own Kasel! I would recommend him for all future real estate endeavors!
We moved to MN from out of state due to job transfer. Joe was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He quickly picked up on what we were looking for and made the entire process enjoyable and stress free. We would certainly recommend him!
- James & Julie W.
Joe provided us with great guidance during all phases of selling our Arden Hills home. He is honest, professional, very knowledgeable, and prompt in communications. He went the extra mile to get the best possible result for us.
- Michele & Jacques O.
I began working with Joe 12 years ago during the real estate downturn. He was extremely resourceful in identifying the perfect buyer for my mother’s home in Saint Anthony. When it came time to sell her condo we went right back to Joe. His expertise in the Saint Anthony, NE Mpls and surrounding markets is the best a buyer or seller can find in those areas. I would recommend Joe as my first and only choice to buy or sell your property. He knows the market, the inventory and his integrity is at the highest level in the real estate industry.

Joe did a fantastic job from start to finish! It began with him giving us a market analysis of our Lino Lakes home prior to putting it on the market. He works with a great stager and professional photographer that really showcased the features of our property. Joe is always prompt in replying to our questions or concerns. He is truly artful in the negotiation process and we are confident Joe got us the best price for our home! We will definitely be recommending Joe to others!
- Dean & Debbie B.
Joe sold two properties for us as my parents got older and moved into senior housing. We trusted Joe by his reputation within our local community and by our getting to know him through mutual friends and kids' school activities. He was responsive, professional, action-oriented and very effective. He helped us sell each property faster than we expected, and we got the prices we were looking for. And, although the decision to move and sell was emotionally difficult for us, he made it enjoyable and actually kind of fun! A couple of years later when we became interested in buying a lake property, Joe was our first call. He helped us make all the right connections, supported throughout, and within a week we had an agreement that pleased both us and the seller. Joe is now our trusted real estate advisor. A true professional. We regularly recommend him.

- Alex & Kelsey S.
Thank you for being my Realtor. What you did to get my lake home SOLD was phenomenal ! It was my lucky day when I found you! You are the best!
- Jean F.
We LOVE our new home & location! We appreciate all your time & expertise! It has been a pleasure working with you.
- Jeff & Lisa Z.
Joe helped my fiancé & myself find our 1st home. He was quick to respond when we found something we liked. He was very knowledgeable about things I would never even think to look at in a house! He’s very easy to work with and a great guy! I would recommend Joe to anyone, but especially New Homeowners like us!!
- Joe & Allie B.
As we settle into our new home, we reflect on the kind, patient & supportive service you offered our family both for the purchase of this home & our 1st family home. We whole heartedly trust you and look forward to recommending you to others!
- Tom & Katie P.
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.
- Kevin & Cathy, Maple Grove, MN
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!
- Michael & Lori, Shoreview, MN
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.
- Barb & Brian, Roseville, MN
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!
- Joy & Tom, Arden Hills
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,
- Jeff and Sarah, New Brighton,MN
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!
