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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
As first-time homebuyers in an ultra-competitive market, Lynn was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. His professionalism and communication are outstanding.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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 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.
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 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.
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!
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!
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.
