superhero: Green Lantern. Jarrod loved that the Green Lantern could do anything with that power ring.
Jarrod Peterson is phenomenal! He told us thing about our home that, at first, were a little hard to accept, but when we did the work he suggested, the house really did look better, and it sold in less than ONE DAY. He also represented us in the purchase of our new house. His advice was indispensable. His negotiating was respectful and forthright. The house is better than it would have been without his counsel.
Jarrod Peterson is the only Real Estate Agent to work with in Maple Grove. He sold my townhome in 1 Day, with multiple offers. I know it was all the premarketing that he did prior to us listing the property. Thank you Jarrod for being the marketing expert you are. This process was so smooth because of you.
Jarrod, your excellent communications skills help keep clients informed throughout the entire process. I felt I was really a part of the transaction – and appreciate that. You are a person you can trust!
We are so lucky our friend Dan referred us to you. You found us the perfect home that was not year even on the market. Thank you for everything you did for our family.
We recently used Jarrod Peterson and his team to sell our home and we couldn't be more pleased with the services and outcome of our home sale. We know many realtors in the area but selected Jarrod because he was by far the most professional, strategic and successful. We know many people who have used Jarrod and we have known him professionally for 9 years. So, we had great confidence in choosing him. He is not only an industry leader but a student of his profession - constantly updating and certifying his knowledge. We heartily support and endorse him services
Jarrod, what can I say? You got us into a home at a 30K savings. We got an even better home for a great price, thanks to you. We will forever be grateful. Thanks for your ongoing friendship and professionalism!
I'd like to thank Jarrod for his time meeting with my husband and I regarding our future real estate needs. We "may" be selling our home in the next 5 years or so and we wanted an experts opinion on what items to update in our current home to best position our home when we are ready to put it on the market. His expertise saved us from "over spending" on updates that won't aide us in getting the best value at the time we sell. Based on Jarrod's time, expertise, and patience during his meeting with us we WILL be using Jarrod when we are ready to sell our home and move into another property! If you are in doubt of who to use when buying or selling your home all I can say is, If in doubt - Check Jarrod Out! You'll be glad you did!
At no time did we feel pressured to buy. You helped us find the right neighborhood and secured a very good deal for us in the process. Your ongoing follow-up is the best in the business. Thanks for everything you have done!
Your patience and professionalism as we bought our lake home was fantastic. We really appreciate your flexible schedule and knowledge you demonstrated every step of the way. You are a true asset to any client you work with, and well deserving of your Super Real Estate Agent Award. Congratulations!
Thank you for helping us find our first dream home! You helped us understand the process, and saved us so much money. Your patience was incredible – thanks!
Jarrod Peterson was incredible. We knew we wanted to work with him since he is the leading Realtor in the area, and you can see why. We never had to put our home on the public market. His professionalism, action plan and pure networking talent, sold our home for higher than the price we were thinking. He made this process easy.
You are the man! When I knew I would be relocating, I told Lauren, we have to contact Jarrod. He sells everything in Maple Grove and is the Gladstone neighborhood expert. You advised us on the improvements we needed to make and it paid off. SOLD in 18 hours and for $20K higher than we thought we were going to get. We were so impressed with your market knowledge, sales ability, negotiation skill. Everything was flawless thanks to you. I am truly blessed to have met you. Thank you!
Jarrod helped us move internationally! We chose Jarrod because of his connections and leading Real Estate Status with the Rush Creek Neighborhoods. We gave him 30 days to sell our home, and after many showings, he sold it on day 28! Jarrod is enthusiastic, energetic, and above all very professional. In one word, Jarrod is a FABULOUS professional to work with. You will be so glad you chose him!
Thanks for all of your help. I really appreciated your very professional approach and your willingness to go above and beyond to help me sell my home. If I am not mistaken, we got an offer after 13 showings which is rare given the current market. Placing the extra lighting in the living room to allow buyers to view the unit in the evening was invaluable. There is no way I could have sold my place in Minnesota given I had already relocated to North Carolina without your assistance. I will recommend you to all of my friends.
After going through three realtors over the previous years, you came in and established a solid plan – 10 days later, we had multiple offers and continued interest in the house. You restored our faith that realtors do deliver on their promises. Thank you!
Jarrod, thank you for all your help to get us into our dream home. You were always so patient with us. You kept an open mind and really focused on what the key qualities to the home and neighborhood we were looking for. You knew the market so well, and even knew of new listings coming on the market! Your professionalism is second to none and we really appreciate your open availability and flexibility to meet our tough demands. We got a GREAT foreclosure and are so proud to call it home, thanks to you!
We recently sold our house and used Jarrod Peterson after getting referred to him by a close friend. Jarrod was truly a pleasure to work with. Straight forward, very knowledgeable, and definitely has your best interests at heart. We will recommend Jarrod to anyone that needs a great Real Estate Agent
It was a difficult time for me during this transition, and you really helped provide the direction and information I needed. Your strong product knowledge of what was available, helped me secure my house the first day it hit the market. Thank you for lining up professional mortgage officers and home inspectors as well. You have all the right connections!
It was so great working with Jarrod. He was always very prompt in answering my calls and keeping me informed on the whole process of getting my house sold. Highly recommend Jarrod Peterson as your Agent!
I am so thankful I was referred to work with you. We sold our home in Copper Marsh in less than 3 weeks and you truly are Maple Grove’s leading Realtor. There were 5 homes trying to sell when we listed, and those were still on the market while we were SOLD and closing. You really know where to find the buyers and how to market a property. Thank you so much!
Jerrod was very knowledgeable, skilled and always there for us. He was highly recommended to us by a close neighbor and friend. He really knows Maple Grove! He provided us with detailed information on other sales and spent a great deal of time and effort staging and photographing our home.
I had the opportunity to work with Jarrod while purchasing my very first home! I could not have been more impressed with his level of knowledge, professionalism, and willingness to serve during this process. It was no surprise for me to find out later that he was a TOP Real Estate professional in the Northwest Metro. Jarrod handled my transaction as if it was his most important. Since then, I have referred several of my friends his way, and each time, the experience has been exceptional. I would HIGHLY Recommend, anyone looking to work with a TOP Notch Real Estate Professional, to contact Jarrod Peterson at Edina Realty. You will be happy that you did!
Jarrod, you helped us find our first home through your extensive networking. We got into a house a day BEFORE it listed, and bought it that night. There were three other interested parties, and we still got the house. Thank so much for your knowledge and energy. We look forward to working with you again!
Jarrod was our realtor for both the selling of our former house and the purchase of our current one. We could not have been more impressed with his professionalism and overall knowledge of real estate. He managed to sell our house in 6 days after it was listed! When we were looking for our current place he showed patience with my wife and I and really took his time to assist and advise us when looking at new houses. Always knew if a house were looking at was priced correctly and during the negotiation of our purchase, he got our sellers into price range we really liked. All in all, I would recommend Jarrod 100% of the time.
Jarrod, wow, what can we say? You helped us now with three real estate transactions in Maple Grove, during tough real estate markets, it is no wonder you are Maple Grove's leading real estate professional. We are happy to have relocated to the East Coast, but sad to be away from you and all the real estate action you create for the Maple Grove community. It was fun to watch. We have appreciated your friendship and guidance along the way, and will never forget what you have done. Thank you.
Thank you so much for everything you did for us! You went above and beyond every step of the way – we couldn’t have asked for more. We’ll look forward to working with you again in the future. Without hesitation, we will gladly refer anyone we know who is looking for a home your way.
You helped me sell my condo in a VERY competitive market in Minneapolis. Your creativity, drive and execution on your marketing plan did it. As a result – we are now living in our dream home and appreciate your assistance very much!
After careful considering of many options, I chose you to be my agent based on your presence, attitude and knowledge. We looked at many homes, but got our preferred house at considerable savings.Thanks for all your hard work!
Jarrod, thank you so much for taking the time to show us all the properties around Maple Grove. You certainly know the market and it is easy to see why you are Maple Grove’s real estate sales leader. We really appreciate you introducing us to the new construction homes and helping us build our dream home. We are so happy in it and could not have done it without you. Thanks again!
Jarrod, your high standard’s meticulous follow-up professionalism is an asset to anyone looking to buy and sell real estate. You are the only one I would recommend to a friend when it comes to an important decision such as buying and selling a home.
Jarrod, we are sitting in our new home reflecting on how you helped get us here. We sold our other home quickly, as you reassured us we would and helped us find the perfect home and neighborhood for our family. We have told everyone we know, you got to work with Jarrod. Thank you also for the generous donation to the charity organization. You truly do care about your clients.
It is amazing that I found you online through a buyer’s internet site. You were a fantastic Realtor, and helped me get my large family settled into their new home in 45 days. Thanks for everything!
Thank you for connecting us to a GREAT Realtor in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Your national connections are incredible. As you know, we were on a very tight timeframe, and you helped us sell and buy within a month. Thank you!
You really made my move happen. I couldn’t be happier with the results. You sold my home in 11 days in a VERY competitive market. You knew exactly what to do. You also found me a GREAT Realtor to work with in Las Vegas – I can’t believe your connections and I could not have done this without you. My church will use your donation to expand internet use. Thank you for all you did.
We can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us throughout our first-time home-buying experience. This process was enjoyable thanks to you. We can’t wait until our friends and family ask us for a Realtor! We also want to express how thoughtful it was for you to donate a gift in memory Erik’s father. Thank you so much, we enjoyed your warm and friendly personality…there should be more Jarrods out there!
You told us you could sell it – and you did! We cannot thank you enough. You got us more for our house than we hoped, and made the entire process, which is typically so stressful, very enjoyable. Any seller in this tough market, would be fortunate to work with you. Thanks again!
We wanted to say thank you for selling our home so quickly in a tough real estate market. From the first meeting, we knew you were the professional we wanted to partner with. You delivered on everything you said you would, from the conditioning and staging of the home to the marketing and we sold it within a week. We are so grateful we were referred to you. Thank you for all you did.
You were so busy with so many clients when you helped me, yet you made me feel like I was your only client. I really respected that about you. You sold our home, when we needed to sell and had a great marketing plan to generate the high offer. Then you helped us find a terrific home in a great neighborhood too. My whole family enjoyed working with you. Thank you for all your help and connections. We’ll look forward to working with you again in the future.
Thank you so much for all you did for me. Everything about the mortgage, buying, closing, move, etc. was pleasant. You were with me every step of the way, and that meant a lot to me. It was a joy to work with you.
Jarrod Peterson is a true pro. As first time home buyers, Jarrod walked us through the whole process. He is an expert in the field and took time to educate us. We knew from Day 1 that he was in our court. The process was SEAMLESS and easy-- our family and friends warned us of how horrible the process could be and they obviously didn't work with Jarrod on their past transactions. I won't even consider using another agent and recommend him 100%.
Your marketing plan to get a home sold is first rate. Your connection to the community, especially through Rush Creek Neighbors, makes you the ONLY choice if someone is serious about selling . We were out of the country and had to rely on you for alot of support, and we appreciate that. Your marketing and pricing strategy was right on to get our home SOLD. We will always be grateful for what you did to help us through this transition to India and selling our house. Thank you.
I would highly recommend Jarrod as a realtor. Jarrod provided expert advice on preparing our home for sale and sold our house in less than 2 days. He helped us find and buy a new home that we love
My husband and I were referred to you by a co-worker who used you. He spoke very highly of you and we can see why. Due to job circumstances, my husband was thousands of miles away as we searched for our first house. This could have presented several challenges, but you made the entire transaction so smooth and my husband was a part of it each step of the way. Thanks for all the extra efforts – you are a great realtor.
Jarrod, one of your greatest strengths is assembling all the resources to ensure everyone gets to the closing table. I have used your services on several occasions and will continue to refer you as the only Realtor to work with.
We chose Jarrod Peterson because of his incredible networking and marketing skills. We chose Edina Realty because they are the largest real estate company out there. In a challenging market, you need both. Jarrod did an outstanding job preparing our home for market, and was very aggressive at getting us the numerous showings needed on the internet as well as in person to get our home sold. In the end, we had multiple offers and our closing went very smooth. We would highly recommend Jarrod Peterson to anyone considering selling their home.
I have worked with Jarrod on several occasions and have never been disappointed. He's very honest and he lets you know exactly what to expect from him and exactly what he expects from you - from both the buyer side and the seller side of a transaction. Jarrod is the best, and I wouldn't work with anyone else for all of my future real estate needs!
Jarrod has successfully mastered a high level of personal care in his profession. Although, we had only one “must” requirement in our new home, this was a huge limitation in our purchase process. We thought we were going to be easy buyers, yet Jarrod made our sale and purchase process extremely smooth and quick. He has excellent connections to assist with quick home fixes at reasonable costs and an excellent mortgage advisor. He walked us through everything and communicated clearly and effectively. We are more than elated in every aspect of the service and professionalism we received from Jarrod Peterson and his entire team of connections. Thank you Jarrod we love our new home and couldn’t be happier!
Jarrod, your communication during the buying and selling transaction was fantastic, but what impressed me most is how you followed up after we moved with some of the outstanding issues we had. You really focus on building long term relationships and we appreciate everything you have done!
We highly recommend Jarrod! He really knows the Maple Grove area. We received multiple offers and closed quickly. He did a great job staging our home highlighting features that made our home stand out from the rest. His communication was always timely and thorough. We truly appreciate all his efforts. We are very pleased.
It is truly an amazing testimonial when another local realtor says to us, if you want to sell in Maple Grove, you need to use Jarrod Peterson. We were so frustrated with our other realtor/brokerage and you were recommended as a true professional and market leader, and it is clearly evident why that is. We sold the highest price in the neighborhood and you exceeded our expectations with marketing, knowledge and ability to generate the web and foot traffic we needed to get the buyers in the home. We could not have moved without you. Thank you so much!
Jarrod got our lake home sold with only 6 showings! We couldn’t believe how many websites he advertised on. Most Realtors are too cheap to spend money marketing, but Jarrod really invested to make sure our home got SOLD. We had lived in our home for 40 years – thanks Jarrod for making this transition so smooth for us and maximizing the equity in our home. We are so glad we choose you!
Thank you Jarrod for helping me sell my home in a tough real estate market. After trying unsuccessfully with another smaller brokerage, it was time to work with a sales leader and strong company, like Edina Realty. Your professionalism, expert advice, and strategic pricing is what made a difference to me hanging my SOLD Sign, which felt so good.
What can I say? After attempting to work with other Realtors in the area, it was time to get serious and sell with the leader – that would be Jarrod Peterson. I loved that my neighbors said when they saw the Jarrod Peterson/Edina Realty sign go up “Yep, that will sell now”. And it did! We sold within 9 days! We got more buyers in the home in 9 days than the other brokerages got in months. I am so excited I can move on! Thank you again! You really are the sales leader!
Your knowledge of new construction and building was very beneficial as we bought our first home together. You truly made us feel like we were the only clients you worked with. Thanks for everything.
After having our home listed for 4.5 months with good activity but no offers, we decided to turn to other agents. Jarrod pitched us on what he brings to the table and we were sold. Jarrod's staging is amazing. He comes into your home and makes recommendations on how to re-purpose your existing furniture to make rooms feel big. He brings in some of his own items to make your home show-ready. In addition, he uses data to base his decisions off of. By looking at recent comps, he's able to talk you through what your home should be listed at and why. Throughout the course of our sale, he was in constant communication - calls, texts and email. We always felt like we were his most important customer. When we finally received an offer, I felt his advice was appropriate to our situation. He is not pushy just to get a deal done. He understands the emotion involved with a sale and walks you through what makes the most sense for you, as the seller. I would recommend Jarrod to anyone looking for a home.
We had used another real estate firm and another realtor for 90 days before we met Jarrod. He sold our house within a month. All along his guidance and expertise was solid. We were paying double mortgage payments and his aggressiveness and drive, got us into our new construction dream home.
My wife and I were in the market to buy our first home. Jarrod was amazing with helping and guiding us through the process. He showed us many homes with ideas of what to look for and offered insight based on his experience. He checked in with us regularly to see how we were doing and if we had any questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home
Jarrod is FANTASTIC to work with - I've worked with him on several transactions, as both a buyer and a seller. He is honest and professional with a sense of humor. My personal experience proves that he will represent your best interest and make sure you're informed and comfortable every step of the way. You can't go wrong teaming up with Jarrod and his team.
As a first time homebuyer, I was really nervous. I am so thankful that a mortgage officer recommended I work with you, and he was right – you do know the NW Suburbs better than anyone I know! You had me think of locations and other considerations I would never have alone and your negotiations on our transaction truly had my best interest in mind. Thank you.
Jarrod knew exactly how to stage our home to sell. After 33 years in one spot, we listed our house with his team the end of September & closed October 25th, which was less than 30 days on the market. Jarrod's communication style blended extremely well with our expectations. He was always available to answer any questions that came up, and helped make out transition a positive one. I highly recommend Jarrod & his team... They are the BEST!
Jarrod, you are one of a kind! After meeting you and other Realtors in the Maple Grove area, we knew we could trust you and wanted to partner with you on the sale of our property. Your credibility and reputation speak for themselves and it is easy to see why you are the #1 Voted Realtor in Maple Grove year after year! We couldn’t have done it without you!
I want to thank you for your hard work getting our home sold. You made a commitment to us in the beginning to get the house sold within 60 days. You got the job done. Given the challenges in today’s market and the fact that you not only got it sold, but closed as well within that timeframe is so impressive. You have a great team to work with and Edina Realty is lucky to have you! Thank you so much!
You quickly identified all our real estate needs and exceeded each one of them. You achieved our main goal of the timing around selling and buying a home so that we did no have to move twice. Your comprehensive approach was much appreciated.
Jarrod, as you know I was going through a difficult transition in life and you made the home buying experience so enjoyable and fun. We got the dream home I wanted at a price I needed- thank you so much!
Jarrod, I just wanted to say thank you for making this move easy on my family. You really delivered on everything you said you would, and so much more. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have SOLD our house while others are still trying to get sold because they didn’t work with you. I feel sorry for them, but happy to have worked with you.
Jarrod, you really knew our neighborhood and how to market our home. Within three days, we had a very strong offer on the table. Although that one did not come together, we had another offer in a very short time frame. Your honesty and integrity were the foundations of this experience. You really made it enjoyable.
