free-time activities: Linda likes to spend time with her kids and other families. She enjoys going to concerts, and shopping for new purses. Relaxation to her is reading romance novels… nothing too deep, otherwise it is no longer relaxing.
vacation destination: Beach vacations - She has been to Cancun/ Playa del Carmen multiple times, and enjoys visiting the pyramids. Linda has traveled in my prior work life, and would like to plan a tour of Europe sometime with her daughter.
quote: Linda is not a political person, but here are two of her favorite quotes…
“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
“You must do the things you think you cannot do.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
band: Linda would have to say Green Day, and thinks they are as awesome now as they were 20 years ago. Her favorite concert was for her 40th birthday at Lollapalooza in Chicago. The headliners were Lady Gaga and Green Day. She really likes all kinds of music though (including her daughter’s rap music).
superhero: Black Widow from Marvel Comics.
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.
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!
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.
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!
