I relocated in April of 2013 and subsequently listed my home in the Pelican Rapids, MN area with a local real-estate agent. I renewed the agreement twice and as of December 2013 I had not received a single realistic offer. The agents rarely if ever visited the home after the other agents had shown it, despite my absence. Needless to say I was not interested in renewing the listing. I contacted Del Jose, negotiated and signed a satisfactory listing agreement on January 20,2014. Del prepared a fantastic listing. In less than 10 days he had two very attractive offers on my home. He helped me select the more advantageous of the two, and negotiate the purchase agreement. The purchase closed on February 28,2014. I am extremely satisfied with the level of service provided by Del and his team. I wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone in need of a real estate professional!
Before ever signing a listing agreement or committing to listing with her she offered to meet us at the home to do a walk through and give us her thoughts. She came prepared with listing comparisons already done to give us an idea of a potential listing price and before leaving on that day she also gave us some much needed advice on some things to help get the home ready for listing and appeal to buyers. After signing the listing agreement with Kristin she immediately put the word out to other realtors that the listing would be going "live" and had multiple showings set up before it ever officially hit the internet listings. She was aggressive on trying to get our home shown and sold and made us feel like we were her only client she had to take care of. Throughout the whole process the communication and follow up we received from Kristin was excellent. She followed up with us almost immediately after every showing that she or another realtor had to give us any feedback the potential buyers had and to gauge interest level. If she did not hear back the same day after another realtor showed the home she was following up with them so that she could get back to us as soon as possible. She also continually followed up with detailed web traffic reports to help us gauge interest level. This constant communication was instrumental in easing our nerves throughout the whole process. We could not have asked for more from her in terms of follow up and updates. Kristin was extremely friendly and upbeat throughout the whole process. We relied very heavily on her expertise and knowledge both prior to listing the home as well as during the listing/showing process and were very happy we did. She never hesitated to give us news or updates whether good or bad and we were very appreciative of the openness and honesty. We feel the advice she gave us throughout the process helped our home sell quickly and we were extremely happy with the end result. I would and have recommended Kristin to my friends who have bought and sold homes as well.
We visited with many realtors, but never felt a real connection with any of them. These realtors were willing to give us information, but we lacked confidence in their abilities to provide honest, accurate information. Then met Del Jose . After meeting Del, we knew we wanted him by our side as we continued our search. He is so much more than a realtor. His past work experiences (including the military and construction) and his knowledge of Ottertail County have prepared him well. Its like having a Big Brother watching over you. Even with our very limited budget, he gave us the same special treatment that he gives to other customers with much larger budgets. If you want a realtor who is honest, hard working, knowledgeable, and is looking out for your interests, call Del Jose.
!! Before moving to Minnesota from out of state my husband got in contact with Bruce so that we could find a place to live. We had no knowledge of the area at all prior. Once we moved up here we started working with him in trying to find our own home. Along the way Bruce showed us several houses, never being impatient and always being very helpful. He even went out of his way to try to show us some of the other things our new town had to offer. Now, 3 years later, we have decided to move out of state once again and here Bruce is helping us sell our home. Its amazing how proactive he has been! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home because I'll say it again, he has been absolutely wonderful to work with!!
We have used him in both looking for and selling property. We would and do highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
...... Your positive attitude, plus your willingness to help find repair options for those times it was needed to make this home sale work are but two of many. You are what "going above and beyond" for your client is all about. Thank You, Thank You!!
It started with selling the farm house. With the advice of how to get the property ready to show, and along with that, the marketing plan on how to sell the farm. That sale went smoothly and quicker than expected. When the time arrived to purchase our next house, you were looking at properties that described what we were looking for and you searched for the right home. With great patience you took the time to show us all the prospective homes, keeping us updated with new listings. It was fun to get the phone calls knowing that sometime we would find the house we'd been looking for. Then it happened, the house for our little family came along. The joys of owning a house again is a great experience. The move went smoothly. Thanks for the moving truck, it sure was nice to help with the moving. You did a wonderful job for us and we thank you very much. Both of our moves have been The Best Move We Have Made
Bruce has went above and beyond his job duties and provided exceptional service. Working with a realtor/broker can be an exciting, happy experience. But it can also be due to unexpected changes in someone's life making it a painful experience. Bruce is a very knowledgeable, professional and skilled person. He shows compassion and truly cares about those he works with. I would recommend his services to anyone.
It's been such a long road with a bump here and there just to keep things interesting! I do want to thank you for everything. Without you, the sale never would have happened.
Your hard work and knowledge told me that we had the right man on the job!
She has assisted us with the purchase and sale of vacant land and a house. She has also assisted in purchasing several properties both raw land and houses. Kristin is professional, easy to work with, quick to respond to questions or concerns, and is always happy to discuss different pricing and marketing strategies. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
