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!
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.
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 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!
