AJ Pettersen
Sold a Single Family home in 2022 in Eden Prairie, MN.

We’ve worked with AJ for 2 home purchases and a sale. He is extremely knowledgeable of the current state of the market, and sets expectations accordingly. He was always responsive and reliable when a new home popped up and we needed to act fast. His recommendations for submitting and negotiating offers were crucial to us getting our new home below appraisal value and selling our old home for much higher than expected. It really pays off to work with someone who truly knows what they are doing. I wouldn’t hesitate to use AJ in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Columbia Heights, MN.

AJ is the definition of a pro. He was able to find us the right spot for our new family. I could not recommend him enough. His knowledge, willingness to teach and his ability to listen to our needs was top notch!

The Value of a Trusted, Knowledgeable Realtor. Over the past three years I’ve intently researched the real-estate market for attractive rental properties. It’s become a hobby, an interest, and investment strategy. Searching for homes is easy, all you need is a Wi-Fi signal, but truly finding the right fit for you—that’s the value of an excellent realtor.

AJ provided insight, a listening ear, thoughtful questions, strategic guidance, and in-depth research. He asked good questions which helped discern the true qualities I was looking for—while simultaneously unveiling the true potential of homes by helping me see beyond their current state.

Not only was AJ a great partner, but his professional guidance through the negotiation process helped secure the home I wanted at the right price. AJ navigated contract negotiations with competence and his persistence and follow-up gave me confidence I was in good hands.

I feel very confident recommending AJ to friends, family, and acquaintances because he’s a great listener; he treats everyone with respect and everyone like the unique person they are. This ability allows him to cater his guidance and support to help you achieve your goals—and dare I say, “dream home.”

When my husband and I started looking for a house to raise our three active boys in, we never thought we'd be able to find that "perfect" house...then we met AJ.

AJ made sure that all our "wishes" were fulfilled,  yet made sure we were realistic at the same time. We were fortunate enough that we got to have our wishes fulfilled and be realistic at the same time when we found our "perfect" house in Carver, MN.

Being first time home buyers, we had our questions and concerns, and whenever we emailed AJ about them, he was quick to get back to us....most of the time in the same day. He made the process easy and definitely less "scary" for us, and that was great! He made sure that we understood everything that was going on and what would happen on closing day.

AJ came into our lives in the middle of complete craziness, and he was extremely patient with us, and more importantly with our three boys. He has continued to make sure we are all well, and is always there if/when you need you him. We will definitely be referring any friends/family that are looking to buy in the area to AJ, we couldn't have asked for a better realtor!

AJ was a huge pleasure to work with. No matter where a home was, what day or time we wanted to go see a home, or how many homes in a single day we wanted to see, he accommodated us. AJ was honest and upfront about the entire home buying process, and that was important to us as we were first timers. If AJ wasn't sure about something, he was quick to utilize his resources and furnish us an answer - often times within the hour! Our lender, insurance agent, and title company were all recommendations of AJ's. His network was extensive and proved to be reliable, professional, and a lot of fun. We're so thankful for everything AJ provided us and couldn't be happier with the result.  Not only was AJ a great Real Estate Professional who helped us find & secure our first home, he become our friend and someone we look forward to sharing many memories with in the future!

I bought my first house with AJ as my agent. AJ is increadibly good at his job. He truely made me feel like I was his only client. He is always available, approachable, and is happy to share his knowledge at a level that is easy to understand. He genuinely wants you to find a house that's right for you and gives you the tools you need to make educated decisions. He also negotiates well on your behalf. Aj brings a spirited attitude to the home buying/selling process and is keen on market dynamics. I had a great experience buying my first home and will go with AJ for my next one - without a doubt.

AJ helped my fiance and I find a place in Minneapolis.  He was integral in helping us navigate the neighborhoods to our specific style and needs.  We wanted a large patio with a dog friendly community and he did not disappoint.  Customer service is his #1 priority and he nailed it!Thanks Again AJ.
Erik Sveen
My family relocated to the Twin Cities and AJ helped us find and buy a home in Plymouth.  We wanted to find a home as soon as possible and AJ was able to show us a variety of homes in our desired area and price range.  We appreciated that he never pressured us and seemed to genuinely want us to find a great home that we would enjoy.  He was extremely responsive whenever we had any questions or needed anything, always getting back to us the same day.  He was knowledgeable about the local market, different builders, and what common repairs and renovations would cost and involve.  AJ helped us purchase a great home in a great neighborhood and we were very pleased to work with him.  A minor issue arose after the transaction and AJ was immediately responsive to us and helped us resolve the matter.  We would recommend AJ as a great real estate agent.
ChristineJohnson12
AJ is a tremendous realtor and helped me purchase an ideal house in an ideal neighborhood at a great price! I can't thank him enough as I love my new home! AJ was friendly, responsive, attentive, knowledgeable and supportive from the beginning of the process to the end. He guided my search with good information for me to consider after listening to me on what I wanted. He was well connected to quickly retrieve any information I asked of him and he drew upon great contacts throughout the process. Perhaps most importantly, he was never hard to reach. I recommend him highly and will definitely use him again should the need arise.

AJ was great to work with- Insanely quick to respond, knowledgeable of the St. Louis Park area where I bought, and genuinely an enjoyable guy to work with. As a first time home buyer, I knew little about the whole process, but he really guided me through everything. I did my own casual home search for about 8 months in the West-Metro prior to connecting with AJ, who had been recommended by a coworker. The day I found the house I wanted (the day after it had been listed), I emailed AJ to line up a time to meet and discuss the home buying process. We met for lunch the next day, he secured a showing that afternoon, and we had our offer in by that evening. I knew we had to act quick in the very competitive market and luckily it worked out and the offer was accepted. I am confident that I would have lost the opportunity to buy my home if AJ hadn’t have been so accommodating of my schedule and dedicated to close the deal. The inspector AJ recommended was great and AJ was also able to offer recommendations on radon systems etc. after closing. I have recommended AJ to friends and would recommend him to anyone seeking assistance in a home search.

AJ was great to work from beginning to end.  He walked us through the process, got us hooked up with great recommendations for mortgages and insurance and found us a house in the ideal neighborhood for a great price.  All in all a great guy to work with!
mattlreeve
It was a pleasure working  with AJ.   He helped where he needed to help.    He always returned my phone calls or emails promptly.  He was fun to work with and very well informed.  If he couldn't answer my question he would find the answer and get back to me as quickly as possible.  I had  an offer the first day it was listed and that was because AJ guided us when we priced the Condo.   I would recommend him highly.
hbritter
I had a great experience with AJ! I am the second person in my family to turn to AJ in buying my first home. He is very knowledgable and helped me understand all steps of the process. I had a pretty specific area of Minneapolis I was interest in and we were able to find a home to fit all my wants and needs! I know he has other clients, but I never noticed because he was always available to answer my questions, take my calls, answer my emails and see homes at times that worked for me. He was also very firm in the negotiation process to get me exactly what I wanted. I've recommended AJ to all my friends who are considering looking for a home!
jgross300
AJ was extremely helpful in helping me find a home in the Minneapolis area. He went above and beyond to make sure the searching and buying process was stress free, and even helped me with projects on the house after the house was sold.
mstrauss78
We used AJ to purchase a townhome in Minnesota and were extremely pleased with the entire process - AJ was recommended to us by a good friend that's in the mortgage business.  AJ is smart and aware and it was really nice to work with a realtor that quickly got what we were after and was able to translate that into specific buying opportunities.  If I were to make another purchase in the Twin Cities area, I would use AJ wtihout a doubt and I highly recommend him.
Steve and Sue Kloos
AJ was helpful not only in helping me find options in the right locations at the right prices but was also able to give good advice on other things that matter - like negotiating over items in need of repair, options for future improvements, and homeowner association finances.
zuser20160803203038203
I would highly recommend AJ.
He did a great job working with my wife and I. When we first came to him we had no idea what we were doing when it came to buying a home. He was very patient with us and educated us on the home buying process.
AJ was very responsive and overall was just very personable. He made the home buying process fun.
hiddenriver4
Aj did a great job showing us houses that we wanted to look at.  He gave us options outside of our criteria, but didn't push them.  He was friendly and very helpful.  We really liked that he was realistic about flaws with the homes we toured and didn't try to sugar cote any problems just to sell the house.

cmmovick
Being a first-time homebuyer, working with AJ was a seamless process. He helped provide clarity to all of the nuances of the process & held my wife & I's hands along the way. 
When we began the process, we wanted to partner with someone with strong character. Someone that will always be there to answer questions truthfully/honestly & will prioritize our interests before their own...and that's exactly what we got when we had AJ representing us!
He's passionate about what he does & it's simply an added bonus that he also happens to be a great guy as well (which can be a difficult combination to find in this industry...from what I've heard).
steven gerten
AJ was very patient and a well educated realtor. He walked me through the process and was able to show me the good and bad with each property. His team made it a less stressful process, and educated me along the way. Not only would I recommend him to others, but I will be using him again for my next house!
chadhendrickson 3
I would highly recommend AJ.
As a young first-time homebuyer, AJ made the process easy and painless. Not only was he patient with me and the millions of questions that I had but he taught me a ton along the way. His expertise was top notch and he went above and beyond. 
Thanks, AJ!
Janey Klebe
AJ made buying our first home easy! He was flexible with our schedule for showings, very knowledgeable about the process, and supportive throughout. Even a year after closing, when running into an unpaid utility bill by the previous owner, AJ was available to help get in contact with the right people so we didn't end up having to pay out of our own pockets. We definitely recommend AJ and will be using him when the time comes to look for a new home!
vwise1022
AJ is a bright and knowledgable realtor that we really enjoyed working with. From our first meeting, we had a trust and understanding about what we were looking for in a duplex/multi-family owner-occupy investment property. He worked with us on finding a mortgage broker, on looking at the best neighborhoods, and pinpointing the features of a home that would set us up for success.
AJ was also very patient and encouraging by walking us through our first home offer, explaining the documents and answering all the questions that go along with buying our first home. AJ spent hours walking us through the documents in great detail, advising on what makes the strongest offer and ultimately leading us to our wonderful new home in the Longfellow neighborhood. 
AJ has become a wonderful friend and my husband and I look forward to working with him in the future.
Joseph Lee
AJ is a complete pro! In addition to being knowledgeable about real estate, he also understands home repairs and updating. Even a couple months after purchasing our home AJ answers my first-time-home-buyer questions. I have referred friends and personal clients and will definitely call AJ if we decide to purchase another property. An all around great guy, thanks AJ for making our first home buying experience smooth and easy.
zuser20160316083821356
Nothing but amazing things to say about our time working with AJ! As first time home buyers, we went into this process with very little knowledge and feeling slightly overwhelmed. AJ truly helped put our minds at ease from our very first meeting with him. Throughout the home buying process, AJ was extremely responsive and helpful. He was always willing to answer any questions we had, and was very quick to set up showings for houses we fell in love with. I truly believe we ended up in our perfect first home because of AJ's willingness to work hard, negotiation skills and tireless efforts with our end goal in mind. I would highly recommend working with AJ!
ashleythanne
AJ is very knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions (and there were many). We were first time home buyers, and he explained the whole process from start to finish very well, with no confusion or hiccups along the way. Quick responses to our emails and texts, and was a pleasure to work with. I have known him for a few years, and didn't hesitate to work with him, just a great guy. Would recommend him to anyone!
hallo094
I had a great experience with AJ as my realtor. As a first time homebuyer, he was very informative and helpful throughout the entire process. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I highly recommend AJ!
Maggie E
I was a first time home owner and was referred to AJ from a friend. He was awesome!! He made sure I understood the whole process and was very personable. He always took the time to answer questions for me and was always easy to reach. He made the process easy and fun. Would definitely recommend working with AJ!!
annasnell8
AJ was a delight to work with start to finish. I came into the home buying process a complete novice, and AJ took great care of me. He was a total professional while making the process fun. 
I could not recommend AJ enough!
dgaida44
As first time homebuyers with a short time frame, working with AJ was a breeze. He and his staff were very responsive, and made sure we understood every step of the process. Wouldn't change a thing about the house search, and would recommend AJ to anyone looking.
lsalzl27
AJ was very knowledgeable and quickly responded to any questions that we had and made sure that we understood everything that happened during the process of buying a house. I would definitely recommend him!
nktamm
We loved working with AJ! He made the whole process smooth and stress free.  He was always available if we had any questions.  He is very good at coming up with creative solutions to get the deal done!
zuser20170212220434233
AJ was incredibly knowledgeable with the entire process. This was our first time buying a home and we didn't know a lot. AJ made sure that this process was as smooth and painless as possible. He knows the ins and outs of being a homeowner. He also knows what types of questions to ask. A lot of stuff came up that I wouldn't have ever thought of.
jakeystew1227
AJ is very attentive and knowledgeable in all Minneapolis areas. From our intital meeting to the closing, he walked me through everything and made buying my first house as easy as could be.
jblong1407
From the beginning, AJ made us his first priority as we were selling our house and looking to buy a new one. His patience, listening, and hardworking, always positive attitude made the experience flawless...and honestly fun. He has become a close friend to us and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
aclongbella
AJ was phenomenal! He was so quick to respond with any questions we had, or any details we wanted throughout our search. Our home purchase ended up being an interesting situation (on the previous owners side), but AJ couldn't have made it any easier for us! Had he not told me I wouldn't have even known it was more difficult than normal! He is 100% reliable, and clearly will do anything to help his clients end up with the home of their dreams! I wouldn't hesitate to use him in the future, or recommend him to anyone!
olson chelseal
AJ is literally available any time you need him.  He will be honest and upfront about each place.  He will not try to sell you on something that he thinks is not up to the standard for what you are looking for.  I would recommend AJ to anyone I know who is looking for an agent!
chrisanderson1533
I couldn't possibly say all the great things about working with AJ. Being a first time home-buyer with little to no knowledge about the housing market, AJ made this process as seamless as possible. He was endlessly knowledgeable about homes, neighborhoods, prices, upkeep needed, and so many other things. He made himself available all the time for showings-which was so important in the market where houses were being sold within hours of being listed. After struggling to find a home in the neighborhood we wanted (and within our price range!) AJ's personality and professionalism won us our new house. We couldn't be happier and are forever grateful for AJ!!
ekillpack
I can't praise AJ enough, he was absolutely incredible throughout the process. He quickly understood what I was looking for and sent me options on a regular basis. Through multiple offers, AJ continued to stay on top of things and helped me secure an incredible home. He was also extremely flexible with the timing of showings working around my crazy schedule. I would absolutely go back to AJ.
haydengoldstien
From my first experience with AJ to the end he was a great person to work with when buying a home or rental property. AJ is knowledgeable, experienced and has an easy going nature that is helpful in what can be a stressful yet exciting process when buying a home. Throughout the process AJ was always easy to reach and more than willing to answer any questions. I would recommend him for any home buyer.
aefunk aef
AJ was incredibly helpful with the whole house buying process. Not only was he able to get me into showings before condos were listed but once the final closing process began I felt like I could really trust him to be on my side and make sure everything was done in my best interest. I would highly recommend AJ as a knowledgeable and reliable realtor.
zuser20170124134315873
Do you want to work with someone who is passionate, prompt, professional, friendly and flexible? 
Of course you do and Steve is that someone.
I am continuously traveling for my work and Steve has been there to help in every way that I have asked. He has my highest recommendation.
Tyler Hallett
AJ was so patient with us! We had a general idea of what we were looking for but really had little idea of where and if we could find it. He was patient with us and allowed us the space to go back and forth on what we were looking for and wanting. When we did make a decision it was for a short sale and AJ explained the process to us--the good, the bad and the ugly, so we knew what we were getting into in terms of length of time and the possibility the bank would say no. He was honest, clear and open about it all. Again, he was patient with calls about "had he heard anything". He was also very helpful in finding us the companies we needed for inspections and other needs for closing. We would highly recommend AJ as an both a agent if you are buying a  house or selling one. We will use him again if we need to.
user5097984
I recently purchased a house with AJ and he couldn't have made the process any easier. This was my first home purchase and I was pretty lost on where to start. AJ simplified the process and gave incredible, knowledgeable feedback on the process and details of every house we looked at. In a sellers market, AJ helped me buy a house under the appraisal value of the home. I have already recommended friends and family to work with AJ and would urge you to do the same!
jacobsonp9
AJ has been an amazing agent to work with, and moving forward, I won't work with anyone else. I enjoy having AJ as my agent because of the talent he possesses as well as the desire to do what is best for his client's needs! 

Before I met AJ, I was looking to get into investment properties, and I met with multiple agents looking at investment properties, and even some of my friends that were agents. Every agent that you meet will be able to help you buy or sell a house, however there are very few agents that can give you the level of insight into the market the way that AJ can. He even helped my business partner and I develop some strategies to start and grow our real estate endeavors. 

In addition to his knowledge, he is very responsive and was willing to make showings work. He is dedicated to making sure his clients get the best service, and get the best deal possible, even in the hot market we have currently. 

AJ's level of knowledge, expertise and professionalism go far beyond the years of experience that he has as an agent. If you are searching for a real estate agent in the Twin Cities area, I doubt that you will be able to find a better one than AJ Pettersen.
zuser20160313171030989
My fiancé and I worked with AJ to buy our first property and we were blown away by his responsiveness and willingness to make things work according to our schedule. The property we bought is a duplex and AJ was very knowledgeable about the ins and outs about what to expect and what to do with our rental unit. It also doesn't hurt that he is an overall great and charismatic guy!
vgagnon617
This is the second house we’ve purchased with AJ and both experiences have been amazing. AJ genuinely cares about his clients and is a pleasure to work with. I’d highly recommend him for real estate needs!
jamie canfield9
Our family's experience with AJ and his support team was terrific!  We were not in a hurry to buy or sell, so we've been in contact with AJ for years.  Anytime we saw a house we thought we'd like to see, we'd call AJ out of the blue.  He is always extremely responsive via phone, text, and email.  He does whatever he possibly can for his clients. 
Moving is one of the most stressful times in a family's life, but AJ and his team made it one of the most exciting and fun times in my family's life.  AJ helped make our future dreams come true.
AJ is great to work with, and we highly recommend him to all of our friends, family, colleagues, etc.  Through our buying/selling process, we continuously felt that AJ was our advocate and gave us the power to buy/sell on our terms.
meg liebl
My wife and I decided to build a new home rather than buy an existing home. AJ was amazing throughout the entire process. He had great knowledge about the local market both for existing homes and new builds. He was always available for conference and attended all our major meetings. His first hand expertise allowed my wife and I to negotiate on several key points during the building process. He is personable, knowledgeable, and honest; I couldn’t recommend AJ more highly to anyone looking to buy, sell, or build a home.
ryan ross childs
AJ helped us purchase our second home and sell our first.  He and his team are very professional, knowledgeable and responsive communicators.  He did a great job helping us decide on a price point to sell our home, prepare our home for selling and closing the deal with the eventual purchasers. 
AJ is a great guy and a great realtor!
mr vanhauen
AJ was extremely helpful finding our home in the Twin Cities area. He was very thoughtful and put the time in to find the right home my wife and I were looking for. A very fun and enthusiastic guy, AJ made us feel very comfortable as first time buyers and made the transition to homeownership incredibly easy. He was also very knowledgable with any questions we had about the homes we visited. I recommend AJ to anyone looking for a new house in the area!
crawfordalec0
AJ was awesome to work with! He was extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of every home we walked through with him. He made the home buying process smooth and removed a lot of the stress out of it. He encouraged my fiancé and I to reach out to him even after closing if we needed anything. He has key contacts in case we ever wanted to remodel or have work done on our home. You can tell he truly cares about his clients and does what is best for them. He helped us find and get the favorite house we looked at during one of the most competitive markets. We were very happy we went with AJ and would highly recommend him!
brandon anderson323
AJ was super friendly, helpful and honest during our home buying process. He was very easy to get a hold of and was thoughtful in his responses. There were several occasions where he sent us a home that had just been listed that day, and when we expressed interest, he was able to show it to us that evening or the following day. He helped us narrow down the locations which would work for our needs and budget. When we toured homes, he was very honest and knowledgeable about items in the home which would need to be repaired, or could be fixed up, and how to go about it. Throughout the whole process he was very helpful and great to work with.
zuser20170103111809278
We looked at three home total. On the third house we knew it was the one right away. We had some late changes with our mortgage options that pushed the offer on the home to the last minute. AJ was quick with the preparing the offer and the sellers accepted with some adjustment to the closing dates. AJ is very professional, helpful and accommodating. AJ made the home search and purchase process effortless.
beclucc
AJ is an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent; he not only works, but actively invests in the real estate market around the twin cities. He brought his extensive expertise to the table while finding us a great home and making sure we purchased it for the right price. Both AJ and his staff know the twin cities and the surrounding suburbs well and offered great advice on where to buy and even showed us areas we were unaware of. 
AJ and his staff are extremely responsive. They can be reached by phone, text, email, etc. and I saw no delay in any of these avenues (I often used all 3 in one day depending on whether I was at work or on the road).
Personally, I can't thank AJ enough for his help on finding our house. We asked him to find us a home in a very competitive neighborhood at a competitive budget and he not only delivered, but he made sure we were the first ones to see any house in that neighborhood. When we found the one, he provided the utmost support that I can honestly say I haven't seen in every real estate office. His efforts demanded the attention of the sellers and as a result, our offer was accepted before the opportunity for a bidding war was even possible (which we feared with our budget). Without AJ's skills, there is no way that we would be in the home we adore today. 
I am positive that I am not AJ's most affluent client, but he never once made us feel insignificant or even that we weren't his #1 priority. For that alone, I'd recommend him to anyone. Thanks AJ!
fickenscherw
We had a truly amazing experience working with AJ and his team. From start to finish, they made the entire process go smoothly, quickly, and easy for us. AJ knew exactly what to list our house for, and was able to sell it very fast for the price we wanted. He also helped us find our dream home, and negotiated the price to exactly what we wanted to pay. We had such a great experience working with AJ and his team, and we would definitely recommend them!
adamstandal
AJ did a fantastic job helping to sell our home and find a new place to live! Very professional, easy to work with, had great suggestions during both processes of selling and buying. Very thankful for the opportunity to work with him and his team!
user8392479
AJ is as good as it gets. My wife and I sold our home in Minnetonka with him and he was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He was also available to answer our questions and willing be open and honest with us after our first buyer had concerns during the inspection window. Finally, he fought for us when the first buyer tried to negotiate in poor faith through the process and was able to help us find a second buyer to purchase the property. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent!
pettjo01
Our experience purchasing our first home with AJ was fantastic. With AJ's knowledge and expertise, we were able to make our dream of purchasing a multi-family home a reality. AJ was very responsive, helpful, and patient throughout our time together. AJ did an excellent job of guiding us through the negotiation process as well and answered any and all questions we had thoroughly. We would highly recommend AJ Pettersen!
emmachenke
I would highly recommend AJ to anyone! He is personable and willing to work toward your goals in buying a house. He is an excellent negotiator and saved us a significant amount of money on our home purchase. He is responsive and goes out of his way to assist you with any concerns or questions you have.
dcarabell
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I came into our experience unsure of how the process worked and unsure of the specifics we were looking for in a house.
AJ was able to explain the home buying process in a simple way that made it a breeze. When touring houses AJ was able to help us identify aspects that were important to us and concerns that we should have with a house. Additionally, he was able to identify costs of potential repairs and give insight to how the home fit into market value. 
Once we identified a home, AJ and his team made the process smooth from the negotiation to theclose.
We would HIGHLY recommend using AJ and his team for you real estate needs!
Jacob Faanes
AJ recently helped us purchase a new home in St. Boni, MN. As first time home buyers we had many questions and Aj was able to answer all of them.  My wife and I both have jobs that keep us busy during the week, and Aj was able to work around our schedules and was available anytime we wanted to take a look at a potential new home. He made the entire home buying process easy and stress free and I would definitely recommend him.
Jake Luetgers
There aren’t enough praises to sing for AJ. He is honest, patient, and extremely hard working. AJ gladly took us to showings and squeezed us in to make it happen for pre-listed showings and when houses had been live for less than 10 minutes. He has a great understanding of important “look fors” and taught us a lot along the way. AJ heard what we were looking for and was able to find us the perfect match in a home. We are still in touch and are so thankful for his expertise. We would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
zuser20140412104230135
I have worked with AJ and his team on the sale of my last home and in my most recent home purchase. He is highly knowledgeable, very responsive, and always makes you feel as though he is working in YOUR best interest. With so many licensed real estate agents in Minnesota claiming to know the industry, the market, the neighborhoods, and the negotiation levers to ensure a smooth and profitable transaction, it's nice to know there is actually an option that manifests this representation. The Advisory Realty Group is not just licensed, they are professionals. When it comes to your family and your home, you deserve the best. And that is exactly what you will get!
grant t goris
We recently sold our townhome with AJ.  He made the process so easy!  He is super professional and knowledgeable.  He was very responsive to questions we had and had great advice.  We would highly recommend.
zuser20160713162710708
Working with Luke Pettersen on the purchase of our Minneapolis condo was top notch from beginning to end.     Almost instantly after we inquired about the properties we wished to see, Luke arranged the showings.   He met us promptly and fortunately was very familiar with the areas in the city in which we were interested. Having not been condo owners before, we naturally had a lot of questions and Luke was able to answer our inquiries.....and if there was something that he was not able to answer right away as we worked through the purchasing process, he got back to us very quickly, often within the hour.
He was able to guide us to the right condo that very day.    Once we were ready to put in an offer,  his negotiation skills saved us a LOT of money!
In just over three weeks, the deal was done and we couldn't be happier with the experience.      Should we need a top shelf realtor in the future, we would, without hesitation, contact Luke to help us out again.

Aj did a great job showing us houses that we wanted to look at.  He gave us options outside of our criteria, but didn't push them.  He was friendly and very helpful.  We really liked that he was realistic about flaws with the homes we toured and didn't try to sugar cote any problems just to sell the house.

Being a first-time homebuyer, working with AJ was a seamless process. He helped provide clarity to all of the nuances of the process & held my wife & I's hands along the way. 
When we began the process, we wanted to partner with someone with strong character. Someone that will always be there to answer questions truthfully/honestly & will prioritize our interests before their own...and that's exactly what we got when we had AJ representing us!
He's passionate about what he does & it's simply an added bonus that he also happens to be a great guy as well (which can be a difficult combination to find in this industry...from what I've heard).
steven gerten
AJ was very patient and a well educated realtor. He walked me through the process and was able to show me the good and bad with each property. His team made it a less stressful process, and educated me along the way. Not only would I recommend him to others, but I will be using him again for my next house!

I would highly recommend AJ.
As a young first-time homebuyer, AJ made the process easy and painless. Not only was he patient with me and the millions of questions that I had but he taught me a ton along the way. His expertise was top notch and he went above and beyond. 
Thanks, AJ!
Janey Klebe
AJ made buying our first home easy! He was flexible with our schedule for showings, very knowledgeable about the process, and supportive throughout. Even a year after closing, when running into an unpaid utility bill by the previous owner, AJ was available to help get in contact with the right people so we didn't end up having to pay out of our own pockets. We definitely recommend AJ and will be using him when the time comes to look for a new home!

AJ is a bright and knowledgable realtor that we really enjoyed working with. From our first meeting, we had a trust and understanding about what we were looking for in a duplex/multi-family owner-occupy investment property. He worked with us on finding a mortgage broker, on looking at the best neighborhoods, and pinpointing the features of a home that would set us up for success.
AJ was also very patient and encouraging by walking us through our first home offer, explaining the documents and answering all the questions that go along with buying our first home. AJ spent hours walking us through the documents in great detail, advising on what makes the strongest offer and ultimately leading us to our wonderful new home in the Longfellow neighborhood. 
AJ has become a wonderful friend and my husband and I look forward to working with him in the future.
Joseph Lee
AJ is a complete pro! In addition to being knowledgeable about real estate, he also understands home repairs and updating. Even a couple months after purchasing our home AJ answers my first-time-home-buyer questions. I have referred friends and personal clients and will definitely call AJ if we decide to purchase another property. An all around great guy, thanks AJ for making our first home buying experience smooth and easy.
zuser20160316083821356
Nothing but amazing things to say about our time working with AJ! As first time home buyers, we went into this process with very little knowledge and feeling slightly overwhelmed. AJ truly helped put our minds at ease from our very first meeting with him. Throughout the home buying process, AJ was extremely responsive and helpful. He was always willing to answer any questions we had, and was very quick to set up showings for houses we fell in love with. I truly believe we ended up in our perfect first home because of AJ's willingness to work hard, negotiation skills and tireless efforts with our end goal in mind. I would highly recommend working with AJ!
ashleythanne
AJ is very knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions (and there were many). We were first time home buyers, and he explained the whole process from start to finish very well, with no confusion or hiccups along the way. Quick responses to our emails and texts, and was a pleasure to work with. I have known him for a few years, and didn't hesitate to work with him, just a great guy. Would recommend him to anyone!
hallo094
I had a great experience with AJ as my realtor. As a first time homebuyer, he was very informative and helpful throughout the entire process. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I highly recommend AJ!
Maggie E
I was a first time home owner and was referred to AJ from a friend. He was awesome!! He made sure I understood the whole process and was very personable. He always took the time to answer questions for me and was always easy to reach. He made the process easy and fun. Would definitely recommend working with AJ!!
annasnell8
AJ was a delight to work with start to finish. I came into the home buying process a complete novice, and AJ took great care of me. He was a total professional while making the process fun. 
I could not recommend AJ enough!
dgaida44
A J  Responsive to phone call and texts was fast.  I feel that his knowledge of the area and price points was great.  He negotiated a great deal on a condo for me.   Would work with him again and would refer him to others.
zuser20160922130751478
As first time homebuyers with a short time frame, working with AJ was a breeze. He and his staff were very responsive, and made sure we understood every step of the process. Wouldn't change a thing about the house search, and would recommend AJ to anyone looking.
lsalzl27
AJ and his team were an incredibly helpful and efficient operation, really quick to respond (which is so important in this fast buyers market) and knowledgable about the whole complex process. He helped me at every step of the way and made sure to explain each step clearly (and repeatedly, which I usually needed)! I would highly recommend AJ to help you buy your next home! Can't thank him enough!
pokadot44
AJ was very knowledgeable and quickly responded to any questions that we had and made sure that we understood everything that happened during the process of buying a house. I would definitely recommend him!
nktamm
We loved working with AJ! He made the whole process smooth and stress free.  He was always available if we had any questions.  He is very good at coming up with creative solutions to get the deal done!
zuser20170212220434233
AJ was incredibly knowledgeable with the entire process. This was our first time buying a home and we didn't know a lot. AJ made sure that this process was as smooth and painless as possible. He knows the ins and outs of being a homeowner. He also knows what types of questions to ask. A lot of stuff came up that I wouldn't have ever thought of.
jakeystew1227
I couldn't possibly say all the great things about working with AJ. Being a first time home-buyer with little to no knowledge about the housing market, AJ made this process as seamless as possible. He was endlessly knowledgeable about homes, neighborhoods, prices, upkeep needed, and so many other things. He made himself available all the time for showings-which was so important in the market where houses were being sold within hours of being listed. After struggling to find a home in the neighborhood we wanted (and within our price range!) AJ's personality and professionalism won us our new house. We couldn't be happier and are forever grateful for AJ!!
ekillpack
I can't praise AJ enough, he was absolutely incredible throughout the process. He quickly understood what I was looking for and sent me options on a regular basis. Through multiple offers, AJ continued to stay on top of things and helped me secure an incredible home. He was also extremely flexible with the timing of showings working around my crazy schedule. I would absolutely go back to AJ.
haydengoldstien
From my first experience with AJ to the end he was a great person to work with when buying a home or rental property. AJ is knowledgeable, experienced and has an easy going nature that is helpful in what can be a stressful yet exciting process when buying a home. Throughout the process AJ was always easy to reach and more than willing to answer any questions. I would recommend him for any home buyer.
aefunk aef
AJ was incredibly helpful with the whole house buying process. Not only was he able to get me into showings before condos were listed but once the final closing process began I felt like I could really trust him to be on my side and make sure everything was done in my best interest. I would highly recommend AJ as a knowledgeable and reliable realtor.
zuser20170124134315873
AJ was so patient with us! We had a general idea of what we were looking for but really had little idea of where and if we could find it. He was patient with us and allowed us the space to go back and forth on what we were looking for and wanting. When we did make a decision it was for a short sale and AJ explained the process to us--the good, the bad and the ugly, so we knew what we were getting into in terms of length of time and the possibility the bank would say no. He was honest, clear and open about it all. Again, he was patient with calls about "had he heard anything". He was also very helpful in finding us the companies we needed for inspections and other needs for closing. We would highly recommend AJ as an both a agent if you are buying a  house or selling one. We will use him again if we need to.
user5097984
I recently purchased a house with AJ and he couldn't have made the process any easier. This was my first home purchase and I was pretty lost on where to start. AJ simplified the process and gave incredible, knowledgeable feedback on the process and details of every house we looked at. In a sellers market, AJ helped me buy a house under the appraisal value of the home. I have already recommended friends and family to work with AJ and would urge you to do the same!
jacobsonp9
I had the pleasure of working with AJ in the purchase of our first home in 10/17. My gal went to school with him, so we decided to talk to him first when we started our search and we completely lucked out with this guy! 
From the time that we met for the first time, through the closing of our home and the follow-up, it was abundantly clear that he had our best interest in mind. He never "encouraged" us to make a decision on something that was uncomfortable, he was very good at helping us make decisions during the process by asking us the right questions that would elicit our real feelings on things, and he managed to keep his cool during my never-ending line of questioning. 
He is simply a brilliant guy and a true real estate professional. AJ is going places in this business by doing things the right way and I would encourage anyone, at the very least, to grab a cup of coffee with him at the onset of your search. I can't say enough good things about him. And to top it off, we found our dream home, with his help of course! Good luck!
chrisboser5
AJ was great to work with while searching for our home! 
Very responsive and willing to talk and listen through your entire thought process while you walk through a potential house. Has personal experience renovating houses and can speak to projects you may want to do around the house to get the most value and at the same time -- projects you may think you want to do, but he advises against due to cost or difficulty. 
Did not try to pressure us to looking at houses over our budget or try to get us to stretch outside our means. 
AJ is a genuine and sincerely nice guy who wants you to find the house that's going to make you happy.
Joe Burns
AJ has been an amazing agent to work with, and moving forward, I won't work with anyone else. I enjoy having AJ as my agent because of the talent he possesses as well as the desire to do what is best for his client's needs! 

Before I met AJ, I was looking to get into investment properties, and I met with multiple agents looking at investment properties, and even some of my friends that were agents. Every agent that you meet will be able to help you buy or sell a house, however there are very few agents that can give you the level of insight into the market the way that AJ can. He even helped my business partner and I develop some strategies to start and grow our real estate endeavors. 

In addition to his knowledge, he is very responsive and was willing to make showings work. He is dedicated to making sure his clients get the best service, and get the best deal possible, even in the hot market we have currently. 

AJ's level of knowledge, expertise and professionalism go far beyond the years of experience that he has as an agent. If you are searching for a real estate agent in the Twin Cities area, I doubt that you will be able to find a better one than AJ Pettersen.
zuser20160313171030989
My fiancé and I worked with AJ to buy our first property and we were blown away by his responsiveness and willingness to make things work according to our schedule. The property we bought is a duplex and AJ was very knowledgeable about the ins and outs about what to expect and what to do with our rental unit. It also doesn't hurt that he is an overall great and charismatic guy!
vgagnon617
This is the second house we’ve purchased with AJ and both experiences have been amazing. AJ genuinely cares about his clients and is a pleasure to work with. I’d highly recommend him for real estate needs!
jamie canfield9
Our family's experience with AJ and his support team was terrific!  We were not in a hurry to buy or sell, so we've been in contact with AJ for years.  Anytime we saw a house we thought we'd like to see, we'd call AJ out of the blue.  He is always extremely responsive via phone, text, and email.  He does whatever he possibly can for his clients. 
Moving is one of the most stressful times in a family's life, but AJ and his team made it one of the most exciting and fun times in my family's life.  AJ helped make our future dreams come true.
AJ is great to work with, and we highly recommend him to all of our friends, family, colleagues, etc.  Through our buying/selling process, we continuously felt that AJ was our advocate and gave us the power to buy/sell on our terms.
meg liebl
My wife and I decided to build a new home rather than buy an existing home. AJ was amazing throughout the entire process. He had great knowledge about the local market both for existing homes and new builds. He was always available for conference and attended all our major meetings. His first hand expertise allowed my wife and I to negotiate on several key points during the building process. He is personable, knowledgeable, and honest; I couldn’t recommend AJ more highly to anyone looking to buy, sell, or build a home.
ryan ross childs
AJ helped us purchase our second home and sell our first.  He and his team are very professional, knowledgeable and responsive communicators.  He did a great job helping us decide on a price point to sell our home, prepare our home for selling and closing the deal with the eventual purchasers. 
AJ is a great guy and a great realtor!
mr vanhauen
AJ was extremely helpful finding our home in the Twin Cities area. He was very thoughtful and put the time in to find the right home my wife and I were looking for. A very fun and enthusiastic guy, AJ made us feel very comfortable as first time buyers and made the transition to homeownership incredibly easy. He was also very knowledgable with any questions we had about the homes we visited. I recommend AJ to anyone looking for a new house in the area!
crawfordalec0
AJ was awesome to work with! He was extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of every home we walked through with him. He made the home buying process smooth and removed a lot of the stress out of it. He encouraged my fiancé and I to reach out to him even after closing if we needed anything. He has key contacts in case we ever wanted to remodel or have work done on our home. You can tell he truly cares about his clients and does what is best for them. He helped us find and get the favorite house we looked at during one of the most competitive markets. We were very happy we went with AJ and would highly recommend him!
brandon anderson323
AJ was super friendly, helpful and honest during our home buying process. He was very easy to get a hold of and was thoughtful in his responses. There were several occasions where he sent us a home that had just been listed that day, and when we expressed interest, he was able to show it to us that evening or the following day. He helped us narrow down the locations which would work for our needs and budget. When we toured homes, he was very honest and knowledgeable about items in the home which would need to be repaired, or could be fixed up, and how to go about it. Throughout the whole process he was very helpful and great to work with.
zuser20170103111809278
We looked at three home total. On the third house we knew it was the one right away. We had some late changes with our mortgage options that pushed the offer on the home to the last minute. AJ was quick with the preparing the offer and the sellers accepted with some adjustment to the closing dates. AJ is very professional, helpful and accommodating. AJ made the home search and purchase process effortless.
beclucc
AJ is an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent; he not only works, but actively invests in the real estate market around the twin cities. He brought his extensive expertise to the table while finding us a great home and making sure we purchased it for the right price. Both AJ and his staff know the twin cities and the surrounding suburbs well and offered great advice on where to buy and even showed us areas we were unaware of. 
AJ and his staff are extremely responsive. They can be reached by phone, text, email, etc. and I saw no delay in any of these avenues (I often used all 3 in one day depending on whether I was at work or on the road).
Personally, I can't thank AJ enough for his help on finding our house. We asked him to find us a home in a very competitive neighborhood at a competitive budget and he not only delivered, but he made sure we were the first ones to see any house in that neighborhood. When we found the one, he provided the utmost support that I can honestly say I haven't seen in every real estate office. His efforts demanded the attention of the sellers and as a result, our offer was accepted before the opportunity for a bidding war was even possible (which we feared with our budget). Without AJ's skills, there is no way that we would be in the home we adore today. 
I am positive that I am not AJ's most affluent client, but he never once made us feel insignificant or even that we weren't his #1 priority. For that alone, I'd recommend him to anyone. Thanks AJ!
fickenscherw
We had a truly amazing experience working with AJ and his team. From start to finish, they made the entire process go smoothly, quickly, and easy for us. AJ knew exactly what to list our house for, and was able to sell it very fast for the price we wanted. He also helped us find our dream home, and negotiated the price to exactly what we wanted to pay. We had such a great experience working with AJ and his team, and we would definitely recommend them!
adamstandal
AJ did a fantastic job helping to sell our home and find a new place to live! Very professional, easy to work with, had great suggestions during both processes of selling and buying. Very thankful for the opportunity to work with him and his team!
user8392479
AJ is as good as it gets. My wife and I sold our home in Minnetonka with him and he was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He was also available to answer our questions and willing be open and honest with us after our first buyer had concerns during the inspection window. Finally, he fought for us when the first buyer tried to negotiate in poor faith through the process and was able to help us find a second buyer to purchase the property. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent!
pettjo01
Our experience purchasing our first home with AJ was fantastic. With AJ's knowledge and expertise, we were able to make our dream of purchasing a multi-family home a reality. AJ was very responsive, helpful, and patient throughout our time together. AJ did an excellent job of guiding us through the negotiation process as well and answered any and all questions we had thoroughly. We would highly recommend AJ Pettersen!
emmachenke
I would highly recommend AJ to anyone! He is personable and willing to work toward your goals in buying a house. He is an excellent negotiator and saved us a significant amount of money on our home purchase. He is responsive and goes out of his way to assist you with any concerns or questions you have.
dcarabell
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I came into our experience unsure of how the process worked and unsure of the specifics we were looking for in a house.
AJ was able to explain the home buying process in a simple way that made it a breeze. When touring houses AJ was able to help us identify aspects that were important to us and concerns that we should have with a house. Additionally, he was able to identify costs of potential repairs and give insight to how the home fit into market value. 
Once we identified a home, AJ and his team made the process smooth from the negotiation to theclose.
We would HIGHLY recommend using AJ and his team for you real estate needs!

AJ recently helped us purchase a new home in St. Boni, MN. As first time home buyers we had many questions and Aj was able to answer all of them.  My wife and I both have jobs that keep us busy during the week, and Aj was able to work around our schedules and was available anytime we wanted to take a look at a potential new home. He made the entire home buying process easy and stress free and I would definitely recommend him.
Jake Luetgers
There aren’t enough praises to sing for AJ. He is honest, patient, and extremely hard working. AJ gladly took us to showings and squeezed us in to make it happen for pre-listed showings and when houses had been live for less than 10 minutes. He has a great understanding of important “look fors” and taught us a lot along the way. AJ heard what we were looking for and was able to find us the perfect match in a home. We are still in touch and are so thankful for his expertise. We would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
zuser20140412104230135
I have worked with AJ and his team on the sale of my last home and in my most recent home purchase. He is highly knowledgeable, very responsive, and always makes you feel as though he is working in YOUR best interest. With so many licensed real estate agents in Minnesota claiming to know the industry, the market, the neighborhoods, and the negotiation levers to ensure a smooth and profitable transaction, it's nice to know there is actually an option that manifests this representation. The Advisory Realty Group is not just licensed, they are professionals. When it comes to your family and your home, you deserve the best. And that is exactly what you will get!

We recently sold our townhome with AJ.  He made the process so easy!  He is super professional and knowledgeable.  He was very responsive to questions we had and had great advice.  We would highly recommend.

AJ was recommenced to ya from some friends and we were blown away by how helpful, knowledgeable and honest he was. He went above and beyond to find us the perfect house in Saint Louis Park and helped make the entire process seamless and easy. I’d highly recommend him and his team if you are looking for a house around the Twin Cities.

ATTN Homebuyers: We loved working with this crew! 
AJ & his team are accessible, gracious, and informative! We worked with AJ, Luke, and Dwight and more, in our search to find a home. Along with his team, AJ took us from point A to Z on finding our first home as buyers. 
This team will help you find the right home for you, and encourage you every step of the way! We can't recommend them highly enough.
Paul Stiver
AJ is the best in the business. I've bought house after house with him and he manages the communication and transaction process as well as anyone. I have nothing but positive things to say about both him and the team and believe everyone looking for an agent should choose to work with them.

AJ was an excellent realtor. He is very personable and took the time to understand what kind of houses we were looking for, and the limits we wanted to work within. He is very knowledgeable about the industry in general and has a lot of experience renovating properties. This was very helpful as he was able to identify strengths and weaknesses of properties we would have missed and was able to provide insight into how we could use various spaces. He is very responsive and easy to work with. Definitely recommend.
Dwight was also very helpful. He was attentive to our requests and always made sure to respond in a timely manner. 
Overall our experience with AJ and his team was fantastic. Especially as we were buying/selling during COVID-19.
wejus
I met Todd at my first open house viewing and needed a realtor as I was just "looking". After a meeting I recognized he has excellent communication skills and a sense of humor and was a seasoned realtor.  He even taught other realtors some tips while viewing houses to pass along his knowledge to others.   We formed a plan to focus on what I was looking for in the market as it had been 20 years since I last purchased a home. He provided coaching and explained the process for both buying and selling a home.  He provided excellent advise to guide me through the search process, inspection, and negotiations through to closing.  When it came time to sell it went smoothly and quickly due to implementing his suggestions on where to make improvements to get market ready even in these trying times.    You won't go wrong with Todd looking out for you!
zanmahoney87
AJ made buying a home, in a pandemic nonetheless, easy and enjoyable, and very quick. :) Definitely will use him again and recommend to all our family and friends.
Nicole Moyer
AJ and his team are great.  They were Responsive to all of our questions.  Staging input made the difference with photos and showings.  Their knowledgeable of the market helped get the interest in our home and multiple offers day one.
Denise Truso
AJ was amazing the entire time we were searching for our first home. He is very personable and took the time to understand what kind of house we were looking for, and the limits we wanted to work within. He is very knowledgeable about the industry and was quick to learn what we liked and disliked. This was very helpful as there were times he pointed something out that we didn't even know we should be looking for in a home. He is very responsive and easy to work with. Definitely recommend!
AHalvo
I had AJ and team to sell my place, it sold less than a week and had multiple offers.  The process was seamless from start to finish.  Excellent customer service, timeliness and communication.  AJ and team are exceptional!  A+ all the way.

AJ was a great agent and helped guide us through a particularly interesting new build purchase.  Aj provided sound advice, was very helpful and responsive, and made the process simple, easy, and smooth.  I would highly recommend.
emmett tischmak
We were so impressed with AJ. He seamlessly helped us through both the sale and purchase of our new home. He is a well researched expert on the market, a fantastic negotiator, and will consistently add vale throughout your home selling or buying experience.
Brita Mahrer
AJ was very helpful to work with! We looked for a home for over 3 months and toured a handful and he showed patience and reassured it all works out in the end! He was always very responsive responding to my questions within seconds via text. His intelligence and knowledge of real estate is unmatched pointing out every important detail of every property. He really does “hold your hand”  until you get the keys to your home which was helpful for first time home buyers like us.
Sam Luetgers
AJ was a great agent on our home search. He has extensive knowledge when it comes to the housing market in the Twin Cities, and is great at helping to evaluate the particular aspects of a property. He was patient and honest during our long multi-neighborhood search for our house. When it came time to act on a property, he was a good negotiator and had a good team working with us.
Adam Schrag
AJ and his team are first class. He and his team build relationships with their clients while also utilizing a scientific approach to home sales and purchases based on data and market trends. They are personal, thorough, and responsive and we highly recommend AJ and his team if you are considering buying or selling a home!
coachcmq
We highly recommend working with AJ! AJ is professional, personable and experienced. Not only did he help us find our first home, but with each house we toured, he gave us his honest opinion and steered us away from multiple properties that he did not think were good choices. He also increased our awareness of what to look for in a property because he believes his clients should be informed and knowledgable before settling on a purchase. He was there every step of the way to make sure all was in order and that we were happy with our home, even after the closing date. We are so glad we had the opportunity to work with him!
ribes22
AJ and his team were awesome to work with, I couldn’t have asked for anything more from him. Being a first time home buyer, AJ was not only able to help walk me through exactly what steps needed to be done at what times, but also had the knowledge of the area and the way the properties were built at the time to give me all the info I needed to make a decision. 10 out of 10, will definitely use him again if I ever decide to sell or buy a new place!
ryanjutting
You could not find a better agent to work with. As a 23 year old entering the housing market for the first time, there were countless things I didn't know about, let alone how to navigate them. I was looking to buy a place that had the potential to be turned into a house hack/rental going forward and I needed someone who had an investors perspective. Being an investor himself, AJ has the knowledge, connections, and willingness to help you in every way you need. He does not pressure you into any purchase, he guides you through the whole process, and he is kind enough to share is contacts and expertise the whole time through. 
Additionally, AJ's whole team is awesome A+. They are all always available to give you any extra information you need or work you into their schedules whenever called on. 
Cant recommend enough!
Kdmccracken
In this insane season where multiple bids, sky-rocketing far above listing price, AJ and his team were able to guide and direct us to our perfect home - a true gem! And at a price well below the amount to which we had increased our budget, thinking there was no other way!
We HIGHLY recommend using AJ and his team - all of whom were amazing to work with; knowledgeable, reliable, respectful and helped to make this intense, stressful search into something easily manageable and even enjoyable!!!
campers1978
We had an excellent experience with AJ and his team. He really took to the time to find us what we were looking for and didn’t rest until we did! We are very happy first time home buyers!
AlyssaLiubakka
AJ sold our house and helped us find our new one! I can’t recommend him enough. Working with AJ and his team was a breeze. He’s extremely knowledgeable about houses, which was an added comfort while seeing houses and during inspections. His communication and honesty were on point which I value above all. He’s an incredible realtor and a great guy all around. It was a real pleasure to work with AJ and his team at The Advisory Realty Group.
AliciaNoel
AJ was a consummate professional throughout the process of buying our home. He never tried to steer us in any sort of direction and really looked out for our best interests while looking at prospective homes. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to purchase or sell your home!
campbell brandonj
My husband and I were searching for a house in Minnesota while we were currently residing in New York . AJ made this very stressful situation a breeze . He was super accommodating to us and cognizant of our situation . AJ went above and beyond to help us whether that meant FaceTiming us or meeting my parents many many times . We would go with AJ 100 times over he was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process for us and just a wonderful person to work with. AJ also helped connect us with several other people since we were not from the area . We had a wonderful experience !!

AJ is the definition of a pro. He was able to find us the right spot for our new family. I could not recommend him enough. His knowledge, willingness to teach and his ability to listen to our needs was top notch!
jhansen292
We’ve worked with AJ for 2 home purchases and a sale. He is extremely knowledgeable of the current state of the market, and sets expectations accordingly. He was always responsive and reliable when a new home popped up and we needed to act fast. His recommendations for submitting and negotiating offers were crucial to us getting our new home below appraisal value and selling our old home for much higher than expected.  It really pays off to work with someone who truly knows what they are doing. I wouldn’t hesitate to use AJ in the future.
Matt Halloran
AJ was recommended to us by a friend. We were nervous first-time home buyers and he made the process as easy as it could be. He took the time to walk us through the entire process, answered countless questions, and provided honest feedback/advice. We never doubted that he had our best interests at heart, and it helped to take as much stress out of the process as possible. We won't hesitate to work with AJ in the future, and would recommend him to anyone.

Luke Pettersen
Bought a Townhouse home in 2022 in Shakopee, MN.

Having Luke help us from start to finish (and even after purchase) was extremely helpful. In a market so volatile, and with us knowing nothing- Luke is very good at walking through the processes and answering any questions at anytime. His knowledge on not only the market but also what makes a house good or bad was invaluable. I do not think we could have had a better experience working with Luke.

Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Columbia Heights, MN.

Luke was an absolute blessing of a Realtor! He knows his stuff inside and out and was able to look at/evaluate parts of the houses we looked at that I would’ve never even thought to check. He’s so easy going and truly cares about his clients. It would be silly to go to anyone but him.
David Cushing
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Saint Louis Park, MN.

Very responsive. Easy to work with. Knowledgeable about building standards and codes. Familiar with the St. Louis Park area. Guided us through the buying process. Showed us what to look for.
zuser20140913222141070
Luke helped my wife and I purchase a single family home in the Twin Cities suburbs. With both of us growing up out of state, Luke’s knowledge of the local areas and their respective markets was a tremendous asset for us. Being a first time home buyer, my wife and I had a lot of questions on real estate. Luke was always timely, responsive, and patient with us during the process and I always felt comfortable. Lastly, Luke worked tirelessly to get us the best deal. Ultimately, his suggested strategy saved us money on the purchase. I will recommend Luke to all of my family and friends that may be buying or selling a home.

zuser20190401123509330
Luke was so helpful and knowledgable about the entire housing market experience. He is in tune with the market at each step and always put himself in my shoes to make sure I was comfortable and confident with every decision. I was able to contact him whenever I needed and would hear back with full detailed answers right away. I will work with Luke again and recommend him to anyone. 10/10.
Will Reger
Luke is a very experienced realtor with a vast knowledge of what to expect in the buying process. He knows what you should accept in a home and identifies the positives and negatives in his listings.
zuser20160629174929981
Luke helped my husband and I purchase our first home and was excellent during a very difficult market. He provided a thorough explanation of the house buying process at the beginning of our search and helped to guide our expectations while looking for homes. Luke’s communication was excellent and he kept us positive even when we were not successful in multiple bid situations. His experience was invaluable and he was always happy to answer our questions. We would thoroughly recommend Luke and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.
Alexa Klos
Luke was so great to work with from the very beginning! On day one, he showed up to our house and did a full inspection. He also came with a powerpoint explaining each step in the process, and was very transparent with how things would go moving forward. He equipped us with links and an app to easily track homes we were interested in, and moved swiftly once we zeroed in on some homes. He didn't sugarcoat anything, and as we looked at and toured homes, gave his honest opinion. He definitely wasn't in it to just sell us a house as quickly as he could. We must have called and texted 1,000 times during the process, with Luke answering every question that we had. We were prepared when we made the offer because he walked all outcomes through with us, and made recommendations on strategy. When it came time to prep our own house to sell, he did the same. Giving us tips on what would be best as far as arrangement, and any necessary fixes and upgrades. The home he found us is exactly what we're looking for, and I don't see us moving again any time soon, but if we ever were to, Luke would 100% be our guy again.
renschen21
Luke is an excellent realtor. He was very knowledgeable, has great people skills, is on top of all the behind the scenes stuff, very detail oriented, goes above and beyond for you, and most importantly he is honest. He’s not in it for the sale. He’s in it to help you the best he can! We very much enjoyed working with him! He sold our home and helped us buy our dream home. He’s an excellent guy!

Luke assisted me in the sale of my first home.  He was very knowledgeable with the process from start to finish walking me through each of the steps and setting my expectations,  he was very responsive to all my questions, and ultimately got me much more than I was anticipating for my home.  Luke is a true professional and was an absolute joy to work with.

Luke made the home buying process feel like a breeze. As first time home buyers, it can be confusing and stressful, but Luke made my husband and I feel at ease throughout the whole process. Luke is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, two of the qualities that helped to settle any nerves we had going into the process of buying our first home. I would strongly recommend working with Luke during your home buying process.
danibanal7
Luke Pettersen was extremely helpful when we were looking for our first home! He first made sure to ask us what we were looking for in a home and then he walked us through the entire process. He was very quick at setting up showings and flexible as we had a newborn when we started looking for houses. He was there through the entire process and I highly recommend Luke to anyone who needs a realtor.
Joey Reynolds
Best person I could have worked with to buy my first home. Really had my interests as a priority and incredibly patient. We worked with him for about a year and he knew when to back off and get aggressive about seeing homes. Never pressured. Always super responsive, organized, and great to bounce ideas off and give advice. I went into buying a house with a lot of anxiety partnered with a lot of determination. I wanted to to find the right home for my family not just any home and I didn’t want to feel like I settled. We found a great neighborhood and a beautiful home and stuck to my budget. I don’t think it would have gone as smoothly without Luke on our team.
m h artcultivation
Luke helped my wife and I purchase our first home. Luke was professional, knowledgeable, patient, and available 24/7. He answered every question and explained every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in finding our perfect home for a great purchase price. I highly recommend Luke!
thanson49
Luke is equal parts knowledgeable and personable. Luke was already ready with answers to any questions that we had as first time home buyers. Like was very flexible with his schedule and consulted the pros and cons for us at every house. We loved our home buying experience with Luke and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good realtor.
lspaulding022
Luke is the best! He has so much passion about helping people purchase their next home. He is young enough to understand current trends in the market, and experienced enough to help during the negotiation process. You won’t regret picking him!
jefffasching
Luke was the best. He was so respectful of our time and was available whenever we needed him. He worked closely with our lender and guided us through the home buying process since it was our first time buying a house. He truly cares about his people. Luke is extremely genuine and truly cares about his buyers and sellers.
kandk mccabe
Luke was awesome to work with.He is knowledgeable and very professional.I had concerns about certain areas and he was very thoughtful in his research of possible properties. I am in my new home and love it!Thanks to Luke and the team he has put together.I have referred two of my kids and one friend to Luke.
janebest
Working with Luke Pettersen on the purchase of our Minneapolis condo was top notch from beginning to end.     Almost instantly after we inquired about the properties we wished to see, Luke arranged the showings.   He met us promptly and fortunately was very familiar with the areas in the city in which we were interested. Having not been condo owners before, we naturally had a lot of questions and Luke was able to answer our inquiries.....and if there was something that he was not able to answer right away as we worked through the purchasing process, he got back to us very quickly, often within the hour.
He was able to guide us to the right condo that very day.    Once we were ready to put in an offer,  his negotiation skills saved us a LOT of money!
In just over three weeks, the deal was done and we couldn't be happier with the experience.      Should we need a top shelf realtor in the future, we would, without hesitation, contact Luke to help us out again.

Luke is an excellent realtor. He really listened to my family about our needs and wants. He helped us find properties we would have missed on our own. He also was able to negotiate and get us a great deal even in this super competitive market.  In addition, he helped consult my husband and I on listing our duplex rental. Would highly highly recommend him.
Kaela Aldridge
We really enjoyed working with Luke. He is super responsive. 
We never felt rushed or pressured. He really wants people to end up with a home they love.
It was fun to work with a realtor who appreciates old home too and really knows what to look for with house mechanicals.

We highly recommend Luke Pettersen when looking for a realtor. He went above and beyond in assisting us with our first home buying experience. He was always available when we had questions, offered great advice and was able to answer all our questions. He was very thorough, humble and informative throughout the entire process. Luke is honest, hard working, and reliable to work with. He is very genuine with his work and does not pressure you. We highly recommend him.
Ashlie Ramos
We met Luke Pettersen through Zillow. We had a really nice introductory meeting with him over Zoom. He was very well versed in the area we were looking and did not force us into anything we were not comfortable with. His knowledge of the neighborhood value and trends was extremely helpful. During tours he always offered great observations but also gave us plenty of space to get a feel for the property. Luke was very responsive throughout our entire purchase. We recommend him to our friends and family!
morris danny481
Luke is so wonderful to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and will go out of his way to make the process easy for his clients. Luke takes the time to challenge his clients in a respectful way that helps them to make the best decision for finding their perfect home. This made me feel like he wasn’t in it just for the sell, he truly wanted us to find the best home possible! I would highly recommend working with Luke!
danibanal7
Luke was awesome to work with. Very professional and knowledgeable about the housing market and trends. As a first time home buyer, he was also able to break things down and simplify the process for me. I would highly recommend Luke to family and friends.
david krolczyk
Working with Luke was an awesome experience! We were first time home buyers with strange employment situations (one person working regular OT and the other person self-employed) and Luke not only helped us find a great home, but also helped us connect with a different bank that was more responsive to our unique situation. He was great at communicating, incredibly responsive, and it was very apparent that he cared about our needs and goals as clients. We’d recommend him to anyone looking for a dedicated realtor, and especially first time home buyers in South Mpls!
bethkevans
Luke is awesome! Very knowledgeable, always listening, engaged, and up front. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for or what to expect going into this as a single homebuyer. Luke was able to provide me a with wealth of information to help me make an informed decision in a competitive housing market, especially in my price range.
Nicholas Miller
My wife and I started looking for our first home with zero understanding of the buying process. Luke is extremely knowledgeable not only of the market and the process, but of homes, remodeling, and all other factors we considered. The market was very unpredictable, and Luke’s no-nonsense, objective, honest, style helped us see past our emotions and make good decisions based on what was most important to us. He answered every question we had at all hours of the day, and went out of his way to book showings on short notice. We highly recommend working with Luke, and will be clients of his for years to come.
Cody Metz
I worked with Luke to find my first home, and he made the process seamless. Luke has a lot of background in real estate as a career and a personal hobby with fixing up homes so he was able to be helpful on multiple different levels. He also took phone calls from me multiple times at crazy hours of the day and never was annoyed, he always remained respectful and professional. Thank you Luke, for yourself great work, knowledge, and helping me find my first home!
damjana supica
Luke was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process. We were able to find a wonderful place within our budget and would definitely work with him again!
Katherine Fors
Luke was very pleasant to work with. Answers all your questions. Great communication.  Very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
gmoney198249
We worked with Luke to find our first home! Being first time buyers, we didn't have much knowledge of the market or what to look for in a home. Luke was wonderful at guiding us through the process before we started looking, during tours, and the offer process. He was able to point out strengths and weakness in each home that we did not notice and provided realistic expectations if any issues were found. We cannot recommend working with Luke enough!
yurich ma
In what took almost an entire year of seeing houses before having an offer accepted, Luke's confidence never waned and he continually looked at new tactics on offers. No matter the day of the week or the time of day, Luke always responded too us immediately and was able to schedule showings as soon as a house hit the market. I cannot recommend Luke strongly enough and I guarantee I will be using him again and encourage everyone to work with him.
Austin Burandt
I met Luke by chance through the request showing feature on Zillow, and I can't say how lucky I was! He is very knowledgable about the things to look for when purchasing a home. Are the mechanicals good? Are there any major potential issues (water damage, foundation problems, etc.)? What is realistic on needing updating? 
I was a first time home buyer and he explained the process to me in a very knowledgeable, yet simple way. If I asked to look at a home on a certain and time, I would have a viewing confirmation from him within a couple of hours. If I looked at a home and had a question about something, he would reach out to the listing agent for clarification and respond the next day. If the listing agent was taking their time, he would keep me updated on the situation. 
When it came time when an offer was finally accepted, he negotiated and got me more than I ever thought of asking for. 
Out of the three realtors I had contact with during my home search, Luke was hands down the best. I'm so glad I decided to go with him and would highly highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home.
kristofferson10
I had a great time working with Luke to find the perfect home for my family. He’s one of the best when it comes to finding prices within your budget.

Luke made an overwhelming experience smooth, achievable and easy. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to share that knowledge in an easy to understand way. He was great to work with and we trusted him to help us find our dream house when we were not able to physically be there. We knew Luke had our best interests at heart. You can tell he is passionate about homes and helping his clients find their home. Luke is the only realtor we will ever work with - he’s simply the best!
Frederick Gaudreau
Luke is someone who truly cares about his clients and peers in the process. He has a large knowledge base that helped me and my fiancé purchase our home. He constantly had our best interest in mind throughout the process of buying a home and keeps being a resource even after the buying process ended. He negotiated and vouched for us to make sure we were comfortable with what we were getting. As the home buying process started to heat up, he was an excellent communicator and helped us to understand the entirety of process. We would definitely recommend Luke to anyone buying or selling!

Friendly, experienced, responsive and fun, we highly recommend partnering with Luke to buy or sell. He made our search for the right home so easy in so many ways. He was always right there, responding quickly, offering options, explaining all the steps of the process. Plus he has experience with basic remodels and we were able to tap into that as we thought through options for each home. ??

As first time home buyers, the process can be scary and overwhelming. We're so happy that we got to work through that process with Luke! He prepared us for next steps and provided us with needed insights any time we toured a house. The best compliment I think I can say is this: We were blessed to have our parents available and ready to tour our houses with us. Their opinions mean the world to us with these big decisions. That said, once they toured houses with Luke, they all agreed that their help wasn't needed - they trusted him to help us that much. - K&R
russelleide
Luke made my first home buying experience stress-free. As someone that was not super knowledgeable about all of the small details of a home, Luke made sure to give his honest opinions on the things that were most important to me. When it came to the negotiation process, Luke laid out my options very clearly, and helped negotiate a price that not only got the house, but also came in exactly at appraisal value. I highly recommend Luke if you are in the real estate market - you are getting a true professional that will set you up for success.
MichaelClaude1
As a first time home buyer, we knew very little about what to expect and the process of buying a home. He took the time to educate us BEFORE looking at any homes, which was extremely helpful. Also, at every house we looked, he wasn’t hesitant to crawl on his hands and knees to look at the less glamorous parts of the home we never would have even thought about. Would recommend him to anyone!

Luke Carlson
Sold a Single Family home in 2022 in Minneapolis, MN.

Hiring Luke to sell our home was the best decision we could have made! From the start he was very personable and honest with us about what would be worth putting time and money into before listing and what wasn’t worth the effort. His insight and constant communication made it easy to trust him with selling our home. Because of his hard work and negotiating skills we received an amazing offer on our home and had a record sale for our neighborhood in South Minneapolis. I highly recommend hiring Luke when buying or selling a home and would definitely hire him again in the future!
Kristi Corkin
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Maple Grove, MN.

Luke did an amazing job getting my wife and I into our first home! He told us from the start to trust him and the process, we did, and now are enjoying our new home in the Maple Grove area. His teams communication level was excellent, and they meshed well with our lender to make this a seamless process, even if that meant calling us after hours to set up showings and go over our game plan and prepare an offer. 10/10 experience!

He worked very hard for us!! We couldn’t find a property on the MLS and I was living in a hotel because I just got took a new job in Shakopee.

He has many connections that are essential when helping us find a perfect place. Luke is the only Realtor I will use from now on. I highly recommend to anybody thinking about buying or selling!
oliviaseidel23
Luke was so great during our buying and selling process! We picked him because he followed up better than anyone else. We kept him because he listened to our list of demands, talked us off the ledge when things went off the rails, worked hard to get everything back on track, and followed through on everything he said would do until both deals were completely done. He was super available by text, with a sense of humor to keep things light. Thanks so much, Luke, for your stellar service!!!

dwm681
Highly recommend! First-time home buyer with first offer accepted. Luke really helped us navigate the home buying process including connecting us with a great lending firm. His expierence with general contracting brought so much value as we toured homes ranging from the low to high end of our budget with varying levels of updates and repairs needed. It really helped us refine what we were looking to take on. He worked to understand the seller's position, which really helped us present the best offer - which was accepted. Overall - very responsive and genuine person. We really enjoyed our expierence working with Luke and love the home that we are settling into.

Great realtor and very easy to work with.  Always available for showings and helped me find the perfect house. He was great in the negotiation process as well.
troymwieck
We were first-time home buyers and are very grateful to have worked with Luke. He was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable about houses. He gave us lots of good advice and clearly explained everything. He was very responsive to messages. I would definitely recommend him to others.
Sami Bennett
Luke was awesome!  He is very knowledgeable, responsive and patient.  Love our new home and thank Luke for getting us into the perfect home for my husband and I.
Julie Goche
Luke was invaluable in my home search. His knowledge and customer service skills were exceptional. As a first time home buyer, it was nice having Luke and his team check in with me each step of the way to make sure I found my dream home and closed on time.
zuser20170108063423228
Luke helped us find a home this summer and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor.  We were new to the area and he was so helpful in helping us understand the real estate market here.  He is very knowledgeable about houses and his knowledge was invaluable in helping us make our choices.  He worked hard to help us find something in our budget that fit our family and he was never pushy and always had time to talk things through.  I would highly recommend Luke as a realtor!  We will be sure to use him again if we ever sell our place.

Luke was so incredibly helpful in walking me through the process of home buying. He guided us to make competitive offers in such a competitive buying market. The house we ended up buying, he got the first showing available, despite it being last minute, helped us get an offer immediately and it was accepted the next day! We had a fairly restrictive idea of what we were after for a home and he immediately was able to pick up on that and direct us to a house we love. It was a cross-country buying experience and he did so much to make the process go quickly and smoothly. Thank you Luke!
ColetteMSmith
Luke was very easy to work with, very personable, and quickly responded to any questions. We were first time home buyers with Luke, and would totally use him again in the future.
codyashburn2
Luke is an awesome realtor. He is knowledgeable and stays current of market trends, is responsive to your requests, and will steer you in the right direction to get you the home of your dreams. He is personable and will answer all your questions when purchasing your home. I would highly recommend Luke to all my friends and family.
zuser20200608073634618
Before meeting Luke, my partner and I were so intimidated by the home-buying process that I was sure we would be renters for the rest of our lives. Luke's expertise helped us out every step of the way, breaking down complex topics in an easily digestible way for us first-time home buyers. He was also extremely responsive, which is needed in a housing market as fast as this! Within an hour of asking to tour a home, he'd have a tour already set up for the following day. We came out of the home-buying process with a much deeper understanding of mortgages and loans, and I know we'll feel confident -- especially working with Luke -- next time we buy a property.
kelly08223
I was in the market for my first investment property. As someone who works in professional services in NYC, where high competence and responsiveness win the day, I was absolutely delighted to have Luke as my realtor.
Here’s why...1) He knows his stuff; every single question I fielded his way was answered and gave me a launching point for researching more deeply on my own.2) He listens; my search was made efficient and I never felt that Luke was showing me properties that didn’t align with my goals and property/neighborhood preferences.3) He had my interests in mind; I never felt rushed and he was a true advisor when it came time to place a strategic offer.
I enthusiastically recommend Luke to anyone who is looking for a smooth process with a rockstar who also happens to be an all-around good guy.
Mehrdad Moghaddam
Luke was great!!! We could tell right away that he wanted what was best for us! He answered all of our questions and concerns. He was very knowledgeable about market trends and home prices. Luke helped helped us sell our home very quickly....in less then 1 day. We will recommend him to anyone we know buying or selling!
tcl66000
Luke was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of me buying my first home. He was very quick and efficient with setting up showings of the places I liked, and he had a vast background knowledge of things to look for when looking at a prospective house. Overall, I would highly recommend Luke to everyone looking to buy!
elliottkatie0
Luke was a great asset in our home buying experience! We enjoyed every minute working with him. He did a great job walking us through the process as first time home buyers. He was flexible with scheduling times to discuss plans. Like also did a great job balancing my expectations and helping me understand what the sellers would be looking for. 10 out of 10! Would recommend!
zuser20150607204733071
Luke was very knowledgeable about the area of our home and worked countless hours to ensure the selling and listing process was as seamless as possible.  Throughout the entire process we could tell He cared about what was best for our family in terms of potential buyers and was not just in it for the sale.
user85097665
As a first-time homebuyer, I was pretty nervous heading into the process. I was referred to Luke by my mortgage lender & could not be more grateful that he was my realtor!
From finding homes that fit my needs to teaching me about the Twin Cities real estate market, Luke was great at communicating & answering any questions I had. Once I was finally ready to put in my first offer, he crafted what ended up being the winning deal on my home. I felt supported throughout the entire process & am so happy in my new spot.
I would 10/10 recommend Luke for any home buying/selling needs. He also saved a bunny stuck in an egress window during a showing, so he can truly do it all. I am looking forward to working with him again whenever I decide to make my next move!
lovingzuriel
Luke did an amazing job getting my wife and I into our first home! He told us from the start to trust him and the process, we did, and now are enjoying our new home in the Maple Grove area. His teams communication level was excellent, and they meshed well with our lender to make this a seamless process, even if that meant calling us after hours to set up showings and go over our game plan and prepare an offer. 10/10 experience!
jordanleclair13
Hiring Luke to sell our home was the best decision we could have made! From the start he was very personable and honest with us about what would be worth putting time and money into before listing and what wasn’t worth the effort. His insight and constant communication made it easy to trust him with selling our home. Because of his hard work and negotiating skills we received an amazing offer on our home and had a record sale for our neighborhood in South Minneapolis. I highly recommend hiring Luke when buying or selling a home and would definitely hire him again in the future!
kristi corkin
Our experience with Luke was excellent, it was our first time buying a house and what we liked the most was that he didn’t want us to buy any house, but one that was good for us. Negotiation was great too and he was very helpful through all the process. I definitely recommend him.
Luke Carlson
As a first time home buyer, Luke was patient, responsive, and very accommodating. He made this whole process an easy one and I cannot recommend him enough! Thanks again for helping us find our beautiful house, Luke!
zaragdds7
Luke was great!! Super knowledgeable, patient, down to earth, and honest. Highly recommended from friends and family. We would absolutely recommend working with him and whenever we're in the market again in the future we will do the same. He was a great at setting expectations and following through on everything he said!!

Reid Pettersen
Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Coon Rapids, MN.

Reid was great to work with when finding our first home. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We definitely recommend working with him!
JordanRoy1
Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Minneapolis, MN.

Reid made our home-buying process very enjoyable! He is so knowledgable about homes beyond just the buying/sale process. Reid helped us understand the quality of utilities, potential projects, future timelines, and extra costs for each home we toured. We're super happy in our new home and feel we gained a friend in Reid in addition to an awesome real estate agent!
Molly Billion
I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and dedication Reid brought to my first home buying process. He was always available when I needed him for anything, whether it be random questions, house showings, or any other hurdle I needed to get over in the buying process. 
He did an excellent job of listening to help find the right home for me and making sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Reid to anyone looking for an agent!
Jordan Tumilson
I would definitely recommend using Reid Pettersen as a realtor. Reid was very patient with me, attentive to my preferences and devoted a lot of time to find me the perfect home in St. Paul. Reid does a great job scouting out the best listings and was very knowledgeable answering my questions regarding the house and the housing market. He is also a very kind gentleman, which makes the process enjoyable. I will continue to refer my family and friends to Reid.
nr12martino
I highly recommend choosing Reid when you are in the process of buying a new home. Being a first time home buyer, Reid welcomed me with open arms and made every step of the home buying process pain-free. He goes above and beyond anything you would ask for to make sure you are 100% satisfied. You will not find a more responsive and harder working realtor!
zuser20200209021644162
Reid Pettersen was a joy to work with. He answered all of our questions and walked us through the financial aspects of the sale. We were first time home buyers and he helped us find our house that is perfect for us in a week.
waubayunicorn
One of the friendliest guys I have ever met. Always ready and eager to answer any questions. Very knowledgeable about Minneapolis and the suburbs surrounding. Also knows a great deal about different styles of homes and the materials used to make them.
CjL16
Reid was an absolute joy to work with! He was patient with us as we navigated first time home buying. He educated us as we went along. He kept in close contact, always keeping us up to date on the latest listings. Once we found the right home for us, he made the closing process seamless and easy. Would definitely use him for any future realty needs!
evapettersen11
I worked with Reid on buying my first house. I gave him a very short time frame (less than 2 months) to help me find a place before I was out of my apartment. Reid not only made the scary process super easy to handle, but also a ton of fun! He really knows his stuff & does an incredible job explaining every detail of the process. 
Being a first time buyer I had zero clue what to do. From day one, Reid laid out the plan of action & we followed it to a "T"! Ended up closing on a home 2 days before move out & could not have been happier! Would 100% recommend Reid to anyone of my friends, family, or strangers!
vlapelu3
Reid is truly amazing! After some changes with Covid, I had about 5.5 weeks to be out of my apartment and wanted to see if it was even possible to buy a house in that timeframe. Reid walked me through the process, calmed my nerves, gave me great recommendations, and we ended up finding a house that was exactly what and where I wanted only 4 days later. Reid offered great advice and helped me come up with a competitive offer that beat out the other offers. The language he used even got me a new furnace after the inspection! 
I closed on my house only 35 days after meeting with Reid for the first time. He was incredibly responsive and communicative throughout the entire process. All of my questions were answered quickly and clearly. Reid was willing to go above and beyond with everything - from requesting last minute showings, to meeting inspectors when I couldn’t attend, to walking through some pros & cons when I was deciding which house to put an offer in on. On top of all that, Reid is super handy and taught me a lot throughout the different home showings that we went to. He has helped me immensely with things I didn’t know how to do as a first time homeowner (like changing plumbing fixtures) and answered many of my questions right after I moved in. 
If you are looking for a trustworthy, friendly, knowledgeable realtor, look no further! Reid is unbeatable!
allison m lague
Reid is a great agent! He was very transparent and helpful from the very beginning. I reached out to him through an Instagram story reply and the rest is history. 
Reid was very helpful in educating me (a first time home buyer) on the different steps in the buying process to give me a better picture of what I was in for. Not once did I feel pressured by Reid to buy a house. Rather, he provided me with the knowledge and support to make my own decisions. 
We visited a few houses and offered on a couple. He was always responsive and prompt on replying to my inquiries, questions, and even writing up offers on any house I had an interest in. 
Reid actually helped me save over 6,000+ dollars in closing costs by negotiating with the sellers to cover repair to the roof, electrical, and other parts of the house to make sure it was safe and perfect for move in. 
Not only did Reid help me find my perfect home, he and his Wife Jenna have continuously followed up to make sure I'm happy with my house. They even made me a special house warming gift - a blanket with a picture of my dog's face on it! 
I would (and have) recommended Reid to anyone looking to buy a house, or even just gain an understanding of the market, process, or anything else. 
I truly think of Reid as a friend and would recommend him for to anyone looking to buy a house!
Dan Dennehy
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I knew basically nothing about the home buying process. Reid and I connected through a mutual friend, and he couldn’t have made the process any easier. He really took pride in educating us about every aspect of the process, to answering random questions at weird hours of the day, to pointing out different things about houses to watch for/avoid as we were touring. My fiancé and I figured out quickly how picky we were, and Reid couldn’t have handled it better. We looked at close to 30 houses before finally closing on the one we loved, and never felt pressure from Reid to buy or even hurry up. He made sure we always felt comfortable with any decisions we made, which strengthened our trust immensely. Throughout the process, we got to know Reid very well, and we both consider him a good friend. He’s very responsive over text and call, and was always flexible with time when touring different houses. We absolutely recommend Reid!
Luke DeBenedetto
Reid was very helpful in our purchase of a cabin up in northern MN.  He was quick to respond to our needs, followed up with countless contractors/inspectors on our behalf and even made the 3.5 hour one-way trek twice for our showing and walk-through.  He’s a stand-up guy, kind, smart and willing to go the extra mile.  I’d recommend him to anyone!
marquis erin
We found Reid in a lucky chance through Zillow when we wanted to see a home. He was attentive but not pushy as we decided if we wanted to look in earnest. He showed us three homes before we found the one we wanted to purchase. Reid dove in head first to support us in making the purchase and in selling our house. We felt fully supported every step of the way - from going above and beyond in helping us prep our house for sale to skillfully negotiating both our sale and purchase, we couldn't have felt more lucky to be working with Reid and his wife Jenna. It helps that they are absolutely lovely people. I would recommend working with Reid and Jenna to anyone looking to buy or sell. They are great business people and very kind as well.
sydneyziemerdavis
My partner and I started searching for a home in the fall of 2020. We started working with Reid and after our first home showing we knew we made the right decision in choosing Reid.
Reid was open and honest with us throughout the entire process. We were first time home buyers and he gave us an incredibly helpful presentation on the home purchasing process, what the steps are, and when to have money ready. This alleviated a lot of stress about unknowns for us and Reid was by our side throughout the process. Day or night, we knew he was only a phone call away.
One of the things we really appreciated was Reid's knowledge about home maintenance. Reid would point out the good, the bad, and the ugly about a home. This gave us peace of mind in knowing we wouldn't be purchasing a home with a laundry list of issues or items that need replacement immediately or in the near future.
When we were closing, Reid helped us negotiate work that the seller needed to complete on the electrical wiring in the house and put us in contact with an insurance broker that got us an incredible rate on our home.
Reid was professional, friendly, and jovial throughout the process. He made what can be a very stressful process, especially with the current competition within the housing market, a fun and exciting experience. 
I have recommended Reid to multiple friends and will continue to do so!
kpm52495
I cannot begin to describe how amazing Reid is as a realtor and as a person. He truly went above-and-beyond for us in a market that is competitive. From going grassroots-style door-to-door in areas that we liked to calling builders of houses we missed out on, he did everything for us and put us in the most unbelievable home we could have imagined. He was available for us day and night for anything we needed. As a first-time homebuyer, I couldn’t have been luckier in a realtor than I was with Reid.
Ryan Holmbeck
My family and I had a great first time home buying experience with Reid. He is just awesome and cool guy as well as very knowledgeable about home stuffs. Although it took us awhile to be able to finally purchased a house, Reid was patient and communicated thorough out the home showing process. Reid then also came and showed me how to turn the water valve back on. He was really helpful.
I highly recommend Reid.
alexdreamer
Reid reached out after I expressed interest on Zillow to be contacted by an agent to help me find and purchase a home, and we saw a home I was interested in the very next day after we made contact. Throughout my search, we saw several homes in a range of locations of interest and price, and Reid was great at contextualizing that particular home with my interests, goals, and priorities. He walked me through the various stages of the process, and kept my hopes up after a few offers we put in did not get accepted. Eventually, Reid helped coordinate my final offer and counteroffer on my home that I ended up purchasing - and I am very grateful. 
I would highly recommend working with Reid - he was always very responsive, quick to find times to visit listings, and knowledgeable about the various quirks we saw in the listings visited. I feel that he really got to know what I was interested in, and respected my opinions when we spoke about particular properties. 
Very glad to work with Reid, and hope to work with him again in the future.
benl88
As first time home buyer, I was able to find a newly constructed house with the great assistance from Reid. He demonstrates excellent skills in all areas of home buying. Very professional and he really makes a way to satisfy what I needed in terms of my house monthly budget, he provided important and realistic tips during selection meeting. Reid gives constant updates making sure that everything are smoothly processed and delivered accordingly by all parties (lenders, builders). Overall, I am so impressed with Reid’s quality of service of helping me on this entire home buying experience. Such an awesome agent and I highly recommend him as agent.
arigojen
When looking for a home, especially for the first time, teaming up with Reid would be an excellent decision. He is a determined individual that goes above and beyond for his clients to ensure they find the right home for them. His intelligence, kindness, and friendliness makes him even more enjoyable to work with. 
Even when I was searching for a home in a tougher market, Reid was on top of everything. He was an excellent communicator, worked very hard, and was a great mentor when searching for homes. Overall I had a great first-time home buying experience because of him, and will recommend him to my family and friends in the future.
Ryan Lakin
We were very satisfied with Reid’s representation.  Although we have owned a number of single family homes over the years, this was our first experience purchasing a condominium.  Reid gave us good advice as we looked at several properties.  Once we had chosen a unit to make an offer on, Reid helped us prepare an offer that was accepted.  
Reid was very responsive in collecting information that we requested.  He was especially helpful since we were closing from several states away and couldn’t track down things ourselves.  Reid is knowledgeable and strives to serve his clients and we recommend him without reservation.
Ann McCaughan

JordanRoy1
Reid helped us buy our first home quickly while staying within our budget. He toured our selection of candidate homes for us so we could see them virtually, and we got our first offer accepted! After this quick turnaround we had to wait three months (for work in another state) before we could move in, and Reid kindly looked after our house (he lives nearby) by bringing in the mail weekly and even mowing our lawn; now that’s going above and beyond! Thanks Reid!
simone a oppen
Reid helped us purchase our first home this year during this crazy crazy market. He was always extremely responsive, helpful, uncritical, very knowledgeable and profesional. As first time home buyers we didn’t know much of anything when it comes to houses & the home buying process but he walked us through everything to look for that is good and bad in a house and the entire home buying process step by step. I always bombarded him with 1000 questions and he remained patient with us. He still keeps in touch with us even after our purchase!  Truly the very best real estate agent out there and wants the best for his clients.
Gaby Velasquez
Reid’s ability to understand what his client is looking for and helping them always remember that has been very instrumental in finding the perfect home for me and my family. He is always on top of the process and things that needs to be taken care of in order to avoid any paperwork delay… he has been extremely supportive and very very easy to work with.

Jenna Knutson
Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Saint Paul, MN.

Jenna went above and beyond helping me close a very tricky purchase of a duplex. Seeing an opportunity on a great deal, she was able to quickly push through an offer and get seller concessions in negotiations. Furthermore, after finding out the current tenants had stopped paying rent and did not intend on leaving the property, Jenna was able to save the deal and have the tenants agree to leave before close. You can rest assured knowing that even in the worst case scenario you have one of the most hardworking and skilled people to help you through it.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2021 in Blaine, MN.

The moment we met Jenna we instantly liked her and she was so knowledgeable about the entire home buying process!

My fiancé and I would highly recommend working with Jenna, we can’t Thank her enough for helping us achieve our dreams as first time home buyers!!
enelson029
Jenna is professional and empathetic, a good communicator. I felt at ease in this complicated and potentially stressful situation of selling my home. I would use her services again, and I highly recommend her as a realtor.
Kari Johnson
We're grateful to have had a real estate professional like Jenna on our side throughout the process of purchasing our first home. She successfully turned the thought of an unnerving process into an enjoyable and rewarding experience. We especially appreciated her negotiation skills. Thanks again, except, from the inside of our new home this time!
TheJohnsonTribe
Jenna was a great realtor to work with. She was very professional and knowledgeable about the home buying process. As first time home buyers, we did not really know what to expect. She was successfully able to answer all of our questions and was always available. Thank you, Jenna! We love our new home.
bigfish olson
My fiance and I recently purchased our first home, and we could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and hardworking real estate agent. As first-time homebuyers, we had NO IDEA what we were doing. Thankfully, Jenna prepared us for each step of the home buying process and patiently answered all of our questions (even late at night!). She values teaching her clients about the process and then empowers her clients to make informed decisions. I remember asking her one time, "Are you ever not working?" and she just laughed. That's because Jenna loves what she does. I admire Jenna's passion for the industry, and I can't imagine what our experience would have been without her.
zuser20180403124252779
We were first-time home buyers trying to navigate a tricky market in Minneapolis and Jenna was fantastic every step of the way. She held our hand through the process when we needed it and gave us our space to make the decisions that were best for us, too. She answered even our dumbest questions with grace, for which we were very grateful. Ultimately, we ended up in a beautiful home and we couldn't be happier. We couldn't recommend working with her enough!
gunnar s olson
Jenna was ready to grind! After my first offer was outbid she was showing me great properties within hours, and we made a successful offer on a great home in less than a week. And we got it for less than asking price. During a global pandemic and in a very competitive seller’s market. She also showed me how to drive a stick shift and even cured my male pattern baldness! (Ok I made that up.) Jenna was great and I’d work with her again anytime.
chrisolwell0
As a first time home buyer, Jenna Knutson is the best buyer agent I could ask for! Her attention to detail, energy, knowledge, punctuality, and positive attitude sets her apart from just your typical Zillow agent! Jenna went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my home, provided tips and tricks for home improvement, answered all my questions, showed me various listings, created excellent purchase agreement, and negotiated very well on my behalf. Jenna is one of a kind!
Hayden Byers
Jenna made home buying in this stressful market a breeze! She is incredibly knowledgeable and we knew we could trust her advice as we were looking at homes. Since we were first time home buyers, she explained things to us in simple terms and walked us through each step of the process. She is readily available when we reach out, even after finding our home, and we look forward to staying in contact. We highly recommend Jenna to everyone we know!!

I reached out to Jenna and the Advisory Group to help in the process of buying our first home based on the glowing recommendation from a close friend who used them a few years prior when purchasing their home. Jenna and the Advisory Group did not disappoint! Jenna was very helpful in guiding us through the entire home buying process and educated us along the way. We never felt overwhelmed or lost through the whole process despite searching for a house during one of the most challenging times in the housing market. Jenna was very patient with us as we toured plenty of homes and not once did she make us feel like we were wasting her time even after we changed our home search criteria once we saw a few different options and areas. She gave us the attention like we were her only clients even though we knew we were not. She was super responsive answering our questions any time of day and was very quick in getting us into showings even when it didn't seem possible. I would definitely recommend her to any friends or family that are about to start their journey in home ownership, especially if it's their first time buying. She made the process that simple and successful! Thank you Jenna!

Jordan Harvey
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in West St Paul, MN.

Jordan Harvey has to be the best realtor around .I closed on my home on May 2,2022. I reached out to Jordan to let him know somethings popped up that had not been listed on the disclosure. Super Realtor came right over to the home checked out the issue and literally went to fixing it himself. He didn't want me to have to go through all the hassle of going back and forward with the sellers. I have never had the experience of a realtor backing the buyers the way he does. Jordan goes above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with your purchase and that you get things setup and squared away.

He's a Realtor,Handyman and a genuine guy all around. I promise I have never been so pleased with a realtor, and this is the third home I have purchased. I will definitely be referring him to anyone looking to purchase a home. You can't go wrong working with Jordan. For him it's not about just selling homes he loves what he does. You rock Jordan.

Thank you for all you have done through the process of purchasing my home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Falcon Heights, MN.

I bought a house recently through Zillow and it linked me up with Jordan. I am the type who generally likes to move quickly on things which probably isn’t the easiest to deal with, especially when it is something which requires an extensive amount of diligence like a home. Jordan was there for every step of the process his experience was especially demonstrated when he helped write the purchase agreement in a competitive manner which lent to us winning the bid. Before, during, and after the home inspection he was crawling around looking for signs of potential concern so that we could be happy with our decision, and he always made sure to work around my schedule which is a bit busy. If you are in the market for a home and are on any deadline or have any specific concerns in mind, rest assured that Jordan will exceed all of your expectations.
sampkath1
He was able to find us a perfect home for me and my family.  We have a member of our family with special needs, and Jordan was able to accommodate perfectly.
Jordan Harvey
I am a first time homebuyer who was recommended to use Jordan through a friend of mine. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor (really a partner) in my search. He is extremely knowledgeable in terms of the market, what to look and watch out for, and especially when it comes down to negotiating for you! I ended up getting the exact house I wanted for a cheaper price than I ever thought I could get! When I move I’ll use Jordan to sell my house, find my new one, and for everything in between. This review doesn’t really do enough justice, but I hope if you are on the fence you give Jordan a shot because he will exceed your expectations!!
rampitcher78
Great agent, knowledgeable and good person. I am a new home owner, thanks to Jordan and his knowledge, transition became reality. Confidence and the key truth on all the homes and their status, this is the inside know how. Thanks Jordan. ??
Meseret Isaak
I was very impressed with the level of service Jordan Harvey provided to me and my family in getting a home, his high level of tolerance, timely responses to questions, phone calls, negotiations skills to make things happen. Jordan goes beyond extra times to meet his clients satisfaction, I will recommend Jordan Harvey to anyone at any time as realtor.
smithwoi
My first impression of Jordan Harvey is a very well respected, kind and friendly. After I got to know him, he is not only professional and knowledgeable of what he does as a realtor but he communicated and listened well and knows how to meet your expectations. As soon as I accepted Jordan as my sales agent, he went to works right away and coordinates with his team to list my house on MLS and helped buyer made an offer to buy my house in just 10 days. I am very impressed of how fast Jordan helped sold my house. From now on, if I have anyone else that I knows that wants to buy or sale houses, I would definitely recommend Jordan Harvey. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!  Lam Chu

I got referred from a friend and Jordan is really helpful and really kind after I got to know him.  He really work everything that will meet above your expectation.   He's really professional and always on top of things.  He has all the knowledge and resources that he can provide and make sure you get the home you really wanted.  He is patience and able to work with your schedule along with fast response whenever you need him.  I would definitely go back to him when buying or selling home or even questions about a home in general.

I am the type who generally likes to move quickly on things which probably isn’t the easiest to deal with, especially when it is something which requires an extensive amount of diligence like a home. Jordan was there for every step of the process his experience was especially demonstrated when he helped write the purchase agreement in a competitive manner which lent to us winning the bid. Before, during, and after the home inspection he was crawling around looking for signs of potential concern so that we could be happy with our decision, and he always made sure to work around my schedule which is a bit busy. If you are in the market for a home and are on any deadline or have any specific concerns in mind, rest assured that Jordan will exceed all of your expectations.

Jordan Harvey has to be the best realtor around  .I closed on my home on May 2,2022.  I reached out to Jordan to let him know somethings popped up that had not been listed on the disclosure.  Super Realtor came right over to the home checked out the issue and literally went to fixing it himself.  He didn't want me to have to go through all the hassle of going back and forward with the sellers. I have never had the experience of a realtor backing the buyers the way he does.  Jordan goes above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with your purchase and that you get things setup and squared away.He's a Realtor,Handyman and a genuine guy all around. I promise I have never been so pleased with a realtor, and this is the third home I have purchased. I will definitely be referring him to anyone looking to purchase a home. You can't go wrong working with Jordan. For him it's not about just selling homes he loves what he does. 
You rock Jordan. Thank you for all you have done through the process of purchasing my home.

Jordan helped me both buy a new home and sell my old home earlier this year, and did a great job throughout both processes. He was responsive, knowledgeable, frequently noticed and pointed out issues that I wouldn’t have thought of, and always honest throughout. Even when I felt like I was being annoying Jordan was always professional and never acted annoyed. I would highly recommend him as a realtor.

Katherine Funk
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in New Hope, MN.

Katherine was great! She very knowledgeable and had a ton of great tips with for both our primary residence and a help with an investment property. I would highly recommend her if your looking to a buy a new home or invest!
Michael LaCanne
Sold a Multi Family home in 2021 in Hopkins, MN.

I had the best experience selling my house with Katherine! She’s great at what she does - she is so knowledgeable and made the process of selling my duplex fast, easy and stress-free. She was fun to work with and I’d 100% recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.

Katherine is not only the nicest person I know but she is so passionate about her work! She answered all of my questions quickly and sold my home in a day.
Kelly Bergeron
Katherine is wise beyond her years! New to the game, she brings enthusiasm and passion to every opportunity she takes on. She is extremely flexible and will surely surprise you by just how far she is willing to go to be accommodating. I worked overnights and took classes during the day, so it's fair to say that I contacted her at wee hours of the day but she was right there every time. She was very informative about the home-buying process in general and often she would offer extra materials to help answer my questions in more detail. I can't stress enough how seriously she  takes her work--you have to see for yourself!

Katherine is an extremely nice person with a great knowledge of Minneapolis! She made my first home buying experience amazing. She was a fast communicator and very knowledgeable.
Ryan Fiemann
Katherine was the best! She was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and so caring. She always answered our questions and was willing to chat through anything we needed. She knew the area very well. She made us feel extremely relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole process - highly recommend!

I just completed my first home purchase! Katherine is fantastic! I flip flopped back and forth between turn key, fixer upper, multi vs single family home and she was there to guide me every time I changed my mind. She may be relatively “new” as an agent, but she’s definitely not new to real estate, and has a wealth of knowledge that can’t be beat. We ended up putting in an offer on a home, and the owner unfortunately passed away the following day, and we went through probate. It took a little bit more time, but that timeline actually worked out better for me! And it was ultimately very smooth! 
Personable, patient, and wise. You can tell this isn’t just a job, but something she’s truly passionate about. I highly recommend Katherine and will be going with her when I purchase my second property down the road!
Jenny Tran
Katherine worked endlessly for months bringing us perspective investment properties that could fit what we were looking for. She stayed very diligent in search and insightful throughout the whole process looking truly for our best interests. She’s great at what she does and has connections for all situations. Highly recommend.

Josh Pettersen
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Crystal, MN.

Josh and his team have a keen eye on the market with a focus on meeting the needs of their customers. If you are looking for a service oriented, transperant, expert realtor that will get the job done and make it easy for you then you have selected the right person.
hardiejanis
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Minneapolis, MN.

We had a wonderful experience with Josh. As soon as we met him, we felt comfortable. We knew he would work hard to help us find our home. He was incredibly honest and forthcoming about what could be a potential issue for each house. After viewing 6 houses, we put in an offer to one house, which is now our home. We attribute that to Josh's great negotiation skills. He is GREAT. I am so happy we got the chance to work with him. I would definitely recommend working with Josh :)
Brittani Senser
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Bloomington, MN.

Josh helped me and my partner to buy our first home on our first offer! He was wonderful to work with and I will be recommending everyone I know to work with him. He worked hard to give us what we wanted within our budget, and to design an offer that made us competitive.
Emma Boehm
Josh was exactly what we needed for our first home purchase. He was very thorough during our walk throughs and honest about the homes potential need for additional work. He was able to help set expectations to make sure we were realistic with the homes we were interested in given our budget. He was very good at communicating with us and listing agents to help us make the most competitive offer we could. He worked very well with our lender and kept open lines of communication at all times to give us the best opportunity with every offer.
AnthonyJacoby
Josh was an excellent choice to help sell our home. He spent enough time with us to understand our needs and has a great eye for staging a home. The professionals he collaborated with are reliable and good at their jobs as well. I would highly recommend Josh for the buying/selling of a home.
Sarah Ashby
Just like many of the reviews before mines, we found partnering with Josh for our home buying process to be one of the best real estate decisions that we made! His knowledge of the market in addition to his insight to property ownership gave us confidence in our due diligence before committing to our home. Even more so, Josh is a great person with a great attitude which made the process exciting for us!
Both my wife and I would gladly recommend Josh as a realtor and as a thought partner for your home buying journey!
ormand saunders
I first moved to Minnesota in February of 2022 and started immediately vetting real estate agents- looking for my next rental property was my goal. 
Josh clearly differentiated himself from the rest by: being extremely knowledgable of market trends, having a great network, communicating effectively, and overall being a great person. We closed on a property in May of 2022 and Josh was a huge support the entire time.
I've referred Josh to many of my friends along the way, and I will continue to lean on Josh in the future to expand my portfolio and real estate knowledge.
Don't hesitate to contact him!
jacobphowes
Josh was a great person to work with. He was willing to be very transparent throughout the process which does not seem like other Realtors are capable of doing in today's market. Josh was also willing to work around a lot of the predatory contracts that other realtors force upon you when choosing who you want to work with, which was a huge plus! Josh was very knowledgeable and was honest through and through, which as a first time homebuyer was something nice to see, rather than someone just trying to sell quantity over quality.
brandonpaulson28
Very nice person, was a pleasure to work with. When I had questions he got me answers. He was on top of everything, worked hard to get me in to see properties on my time frame. thanks Josh
stevenparker0524
Josh helped me find exactly what I was looking for in the time window I gave him. He was helpful at each step of the process.  He kept in close contact with me and answered all my questions promptly. I plan on using Josh for my next home purchase.
atufte13
I can't overstate my gratitude for and pleasure with the experience I have had with Josh! I mean truly--I think I hit the jackpot of realtors!! I was introduced to Josh after inquiring through Zillow about a lot in North Minneapolis (back when I was thinking of building new). He was totally supportive of whatever my partner and I decided to do, buy or sell, and assured me he would be our go-to guy no matter what. 
Right out the gate Josh made himself highly accessible, which I quickly learned was CRUCIAL! In this unprecedented market, being able to communicate at all times and on the fly made all the difference for my partner and I scoring OUR PERFECT home--and in a lot less time than most folks are struggling to do right now!
In addition to his attentiveness, Josh had sincere interest in finding a house that was perfect for us. He never failed to be kind, compassionate, patient, knowledgeable, and proactive. As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and needed some serious guidance and support; with Josh: Ask and you shall receive!
With all the horror stories I hear about lackluster realtors out in the world, I must've had some good karma sent my way because Josh was a dream. From initial inquiry to final signature, this process could not have been smoother (or more fun)! #evergrateful!
sarahritterspach7
Josh made buying a house possible when the houses were being sold at an alarming rate. Josh's commitment is outstanding, he went out of his way to show us houses and his overall knowledge of houses is outstanding, explained everything in details. He’s straightforward about houses and appliances’ conditions. He’s punctual and made us feel very comfortable, in safe hands. Thank you Josh!
zuser20190607102519012
Josh was an excellent relator for us. He was quick to learn our interests and needs as a family to pinpoint properties of interest for us. He was also creative to pull up houses for us to review which were possible to go on the market but not yet listed based upon prior information available to him. He did a great job helping us to understand where to give in vs push back in the negotiation process for our house. Josh was always on time and very responsible. Even after the purchase of our house, he has been an excellent resource for us, always willing to give advice and recommendations. We highly recommend working with Josh.
user1896278
Josh was outstanding to work with. From our initial discovery meeting through the final close, Josh was extremely responsive to our (many) questions. My wife and I never felt unprepared throughout buying our new home or selling our existing home - he and his team were always keeping us in the loop of what to expect, what to keep eyes out for, etc.
I never anticipated that buying and selling our home would be a painless experience, but Josh made it happen for us. We are huge fans of his and would recommend him to anyone looking for a responsive, caring realtor.
gtugana
Josh is extremely helpful and knowledgeable.  His guidance through the sales process was of great importance.  He was able to sell our house quickly without any issues whatsoever.  I strongly recommend Josh as an agent.
user77596630
Working with Josh was such a wonderful experience. My husband and I were going through a program to purchase our house and Josh went through steps to certified to help us purchase our house. He was always reaching out to our program to get things moving. He made the process very easy for us and kept us motivated throughout the entire process. Giving us his expert advice along the way.
Andrea McCorkle
Josh is simply the best. He goes the extra step for his clients, helping set up inspections, doing video tours, and whatever else he can think of to speed the home buying experience. He’s exceptionally knowledgeable about his market and, as a owner of many rental houses himself, can help you visualize what is possible with renovating a property.
I’ve used Josh multiple times and will do so again!

hardiejanis
Josh is in a class of his own, as a realtor and real estate investor! Incredibly knowledgeable, pays attention to the fine details, very responsive and consistently advocated for our best interests. He led our search for duplexes and single-family homes across the greater Minneapolis area and thanks to him, we found a great property we plan to use for personal and rental.   He even works well with buyers from out of state, as my business partner was based out of New York. 
Thanks Josh and we look forward to working with you on more properties and deals!
gsowah
Josh was fantastic through out the whole home buying process and beyond. He was knowledgeable about the current market, quick to respond, and willing to work at what ever pace we felt comfortable with. When we found the right house, he used expert strategies to put together a winning offer. We felt confident in his abilities and we would highly recommend him to experienced home buyers and first timers.

AnthonyJacoby
I’m a busy professional who was looking for a realtor that would take the stress out of the home search and buying process and got exactly what I was looking for out of Josh and his team. Josh spent the time to understand not only what I was looking for in a home, but the type and level of service I needed. I will definitely go with Josh the next time I’m in the market to buy/sell.
Chris Severson

My husband and I were referred to Josh by my in-laws, and we have been just as impressed with him as they were!  We started our home search just about a year ago, and Josh has been with us every step of the way.  In this incredibly tough current housing market, Josh stayed attuned to what we were looking for, always watching out that both my and my husband's needs were being met.  He is extremely responsive, and although a husband and father himself, figures out a way to work around your schedule.  When evaluating a house, he has a keen eye for structural problems and a good understanding of what it would take to fix things and if it would be worth it or necessary to do so.  Whether it was writing up an offer, when all offers were due in a short amount of time, or touring a house when final bids were due in the first day of showing, Josh remained composed and was a calming presence when stress levels were high.  When we finally found the house we knew we could call home, Josh was extremely helpful in negotiations and was a master at understanding both sides to find us a solution as quickly as possible that met our needs.  We just closed on our first house!  We owe this excitement to all the guidance, time, attention to detail, and kindness that Josh provided.  We highly recommend him!
Ana Kadkhodayan
Josh was just the best! He came in and helped my husband and I find the right home .. at the right price …even during a crazy market! He was so knowledgeable and knew exactly what we were looking for. He helped us find our forever home and we are so grateful! We highly recommend requesting Josh during your next home search! You won’t regret it!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2021 in Excelsior, MN.

Liz was very available and she perfectly understood our needs. We are very happy in our new house and so glad we had her help through the entire process
Pauline Louise
Liz was awesome to work with. We were able to buy and sell at the same time with her help. It was a smooth transition and we were able close on both homes the same day so we always had somewhere to live. Liz was great with our kids that we had to bring along to every showing as well. Will definitely contact her in the future when we're ready for a new home again.

Eric Moorman
Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Robbinsdale, MN.

Eric Mormon and The Advisory Realty Group worked as a cohesive team that seemed to all be on the same page throughout the process of our selling and buying our homes.

We were extremely pleased with Eric as our agent. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant, professional, and most of all a diligent worker who made it so easy to work with him. Eric represented us on both ends since we were trying to sell our old house so we could have the cash to buy the new house without financing. There was a very tiny time window to pull this off, but Eric and his crew's relentless hard work made it happen.

Eric was also instrumental in us winning the bidding war on the new house. He pulled all of the right strings and made all of the right suggestions so we could get the house we really wanted without going over the top line. We are very grateful to Eric and his crew.

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Minneapolis, MN.

Eric is a gem of a realtor, especially for first time home buyers and I can only imagine he gets better if you're buying home number 2, 3....etc. He is honest about the reality of properties and will steer you clear of any current and foreseen issues. Patience is something I was afraid of throughout the process and Eric matched mine to perfection. He was awesome to work with and can't recommend him enough!
findlay dylan14
Being a first time homeowner with limited cash and a busy "sellers market" during the pandemic was a bit stressful but Eric was great throughout. Eric showed me many homes in Minneapolis over several months. Great with providing insight into the market and strategies to make my offers more competitive with multiple offers on most of the properties. I was finally able to find the perfect place and am very happy with the outcome. He has lots of knowledge about the Twin Cities and made all of the paperwork very easy. Texts and emails were responded to quickly. Total straight shooter that helped me with a reality check here and there. Definitely recommend. Thanks Eric!

Melanie Joas
Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Minneapolis, MN.

Mel (and her husband Dave too) were SO FUN to work with while helping us find our first home during a time when it was very frustrating to do so! She helped us with numerous showings, and was patient and supportive through many options that did not fit our plan for a home. When we found houses we wanted to put offers on, she was a very helpful guide. When we did (finally!) win an offer she again helped explain the whole process, with prompt communication that worked with our busy schedules. We'd highly recommend Mel to anyone looking to find a home.

Mel was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process.

Melanie did an amazing job helping us sell our home. From staging to closing and everything in between, she helped make the process go smooth and seamless.

Melanie is honest and knows what you can do to get the best offers for your home or what you can do to get the home you are looking for. She is easy to talk with and has great communication throughout your buying or selling process! We enjoyed our time with her looking at homes to buy because she takes her time to explain what to expect and what options might be available. She never pressured us to make any decisions we weren't comfortable with. We would easily work with her and her team in the future and will happily recommend her to anyone we know wanting to sell or buy a home!
christinaburgner
While recently looking for a new home, we had the pleasure of working with realtor, Melanie Joas. 
Melanie is a great “partner” when purchasing a new home. She helped us in so many ways, by scheduling home visits around our schedules and frequently communicating with us. She provided new listings to review and would only send listings in the price range we requested.  There was never any pressure working with Melanie and she quickly became part of the family!
When we looked at homes, Melanie would point out things that were great about the home but was not shy about pointing out potential problems. She wasn’t ever concerned about losing out on a sale, she always very transparent and clearly wanted the best for us. 
Once it came to the actual process of working with the Lender, Melanie was tenacious and stayed on top of everything, ensuring we would meet our deadlines and closing date. 
We can’t say enough good things about Melanie, it’s very apparent she loves what she does and loves her customers.  We 100% recommend asking for Melanie Joas if you are considering purchasing a new home, you won’t regret it.

We received a new and wonderful experience with Melanie and Dave as we went from showing to showing. We learned alot of what we where looking for in a home as we looked over different homes from single dwellings to townhomes in the surrounding area. My fiancee and I are very satisfied with how professional and persistent they both were with finding our very first dream home. We will definitely seek them out to locate our future forever home property.

Melanie helped us in buying an investment property. She is a Responsible, helpful agent and has very good knowledge about the process.

We had such a great experience working with Mel! All you hear about lately is how horrible trying to buy a house is, we cannot say the same. Mel was so quick to respond and meet up at short notice to see houses. She helped direct us, as first time home buyers, to see the big picture in houses. Communication is excellent, and you can tell she genuinely has your best interest at heart! We appreciated how easy she made everything for us, and we can say we found our perfect first home because of her help!
kdeleeuw08
Mel was a fantastic real estate agent. She helped us find our home. She was very helpful as we looked at house to see what we liked and didn't like. She was very knowledgeable and informed us of different items to look for in a home. We are very appreciative for Mel's work in helping us find our home.

I want to give Melanie Joas a shout out for all the great help she gave my granddaughters when they purchased their first home. Being first time buyers, they really needed to be walked through all the steps and she was terrific!  She was very professional and fun to work with.

Melanie added a lot of items to our house and arranged the furniture in the rooms to make our house a lot more visually appealing for the showings. She worked closely with her husband Dave through the sale of our existing house and the purchase of our new one.

Abby Wallin
Bought a Apartment home in 2021 in Saint Paul, MN.

Abby is the best! It was a journey finding our home, but she stuck with us until we found our perfect place and has continued to be helpful in our moving and settling process even after closing. As a first-time buyer, the process can be extremely overwhelming, but Abby made home buying (dare I say) an enjoyable process! Thank you for all you have done for us, Abby!

I would 100% recommend Ben as a buyers agent. House shopping with Ben felt like hanging out with a trusted friend. This was my first home and he explained everything to me in a way that was easy to understand. I never felt pressured to purchase and he took interest in my life to find me the best home. ??
