What our clients are saying  

THEY MADE IT SO SMOOTH - "I was so excited to work with Jody and Gina again! They helped me buy my first house in 2016. With the current market, I was worried about jumping into it but they made it so smooth. My house had multiple offers the first weekend and accepted one by Sunday with the contingencies we wanted. The house we bought had fallen through another buyer so we were able to see it Monday and get an offer in right away. Their communication and customer service is top notch. I’m sad to be done working with them but so happy we got our dream house! You won’t regret choosing to work with this sister team!!"


~ Matt & Anna - Stacy, MN

THE KEY TO THE SALE - "Jody and Gina are amazing to work with! Our house didn't "fly" off the market like others that are in this market and they really put everything they had into making sure it sold. I have sold a house a few times in the past, and I always felt like I was the one doing all of the work. Not with Gina and Jody! They definitely were the key to the sale of our house and earned their commission! We love them so much we are going to sell a townhouse we rent next month and are choosing to work with them again."


~ Steve, Ray & Kelly - Plymouth & Oakdale, MN

~ Mark & Amy - Isle, MN

HELPED US FIND OUR PERFECT HOME -"My husband and I are working with these awesome sisters! They respond quickly to messages when we are interested in a property. They are great at getting showings setup for us right away too. When looking at properties they ask great questions that help us decide if this house is really the house for us. When they're showing us a property they point out things along the way that help us pay attention to things we may not have noticed. As we are walking through the properties they are checking everything out too. They make house hunting enjoyable and a little less stressful. They don't pressure us to make quick decisions or make us feel like we must find a house quickly. They really want to help us find our perfect home. It's so nice working with these sisters because they are sincere and you know they have good intentions."

My neighbor who came through the open house said he was very impressed with the both of you! He said you made a point of telling him about the garage floor. He said he would use you as a realtor when it came time to sell! I think you eventually did meet with him! Thank you again Jody and Gina! Love you girls! I think your attention to detail surpasses any other experience I’ve had with realtors!"


~ Jim & Judy - Maplewood & New Port, MN

PLEASURE FROM START TO FINISH - "Working with Gina and Jody was a pleasure from start to finish. They made the home buying and selling process very easy for us. We had a lot of fun and good laughs looking at houses and finding our forever home. They are both very down to earth and easy to talk to so it felt like we were working with old friends vs a stranger. When we bought our first house 15 years ago we used a random realtor. The difference between that experience and working with Gina and Jody was night and day. I appreciate all the time and energy they put into helping us find our new home and all the help and guidance they provided when selling our old home. I would recommend them to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home in the future. Thanks again for all your help through this entire process."


~ Don & Rose - West St. Paul & Inver Grove Heights

BLAST TO WORK WITH - "Gina and Jody have been a blast to work with. Our family highly recommends them. They did an outstanding job in helping us sell our property, in addition to assisting us on the purchase of two new properties. This was not an easy task, and you can image the amount of personal stress associated with this amount of activity. Their attention to detail certainly eased the burden of multiple transactions. They were very patient with us on any concerns we had, and kept in constant communication. In addition, a friendship formed with both. We are forever grateful for their efforts and highly recommend them."

GREAT WORK - "The listing of the house and photographs was fantastic. My phone went crazy with showings the very first day. Very positive attitudes and extremely helpful.

Very good For Sale sign. Loved their Facebook post of hard hats and hammers. Found people to aid in scrap metal removal and old septic tank removal. They have major contacts for whatever is needed. How do you go from listing to sold in less than a week. Great work."

From helping us to prep our home for a showing, to 100% giving of their time to come to our home for the day pictures were taken to put our home on the market, they were always available!! They were knowledgeable about the change in market and worked closely with us to achieve our goals. We can’t say enough good things about this team!!

You both made the process go easy with the assistance and kindness you shared. Gina, your help was greatly appreciated with all the documents, assisting us through the offer, the closing process, and answering all our questions. Real Estate transactions certainly are different in the Twin Cities from how they are handled in this area. I originally picked the two of you because of the "team" approach and, soon I knew, we picked the best called "The Realtor Sisters". Thank you once again for all your expertise and friendship."


~ Jeff & Mary - West St. Paul, MN

WONDERFUL WORKING WITH THEM - "Gina & Jody sold my house in 2017 and it was wonderful working with them. They even gave me tips on what I could do to increase the amount of money I could get for the sale. My house sold in 4 days! They told me what to do to get it sold at the price I wanted & it worked."


~ Donna - St. Paul, MN

~ John & Laura - St. Paul, MN

VERY RESPONSIVE - "The Realtor Sisters made sure everything went smoothly with my new house! Easy to communicate with and very responsive!!"


~ Katie - Circle Pines, MN

VERY PATIENT - "I loved working with Jody to find my new home. She was very patient with me and listened to what my wants were in a home. She was willing to see several homes (I think we saw 45) and I finally found my perfect home! I have been in my home for over a month and I know it wouldn't have been possible without Jody's assistance. I would recommend her to anyone selling or looking for a house!! It was obvious she cares about finding the right house for you!"
