Being first time home buyers, my fiancé and I decided that we would start our housing search on our own, using online searching tools and visiting open houses. After a month of this approach, we had a harsh realization that we needed some assistance, so we asked a family member in the area for suggestions and they referred us to Jonathan. After our first meeting with Jonathan, we knew that he was going to bring the enthusiasm, reliability, expertise, and patience we expected in a realtor. We viewed more than 50 houses over a 3 month time frame before we finally landed on the one we wanted. On each visit, Jonathan always pointed out the pro’s and con’s of the house and never tried to persuade us into making a quick purchasing decision. He promptly replied to all of our emails and phone calls throughout the process of our home purchase and never left our side until we were in our house. We still remain in contact with Jonathan to this date and know he will always reply if we ever have a question. We are now in a great starter home thanks to Jonathan and we look forward to working with him in the future.

“Jonathan was referred to us by a friend when we began looking for our first home. Because of his patience, eye-for-detail and honesty, we not only bought our first home with Jonathan, we worked with him to sell that home and buy our second home. Throughout the years and our real estate needs, our agent has become our friend as well. Not only has he shown determination to help us, he has also cared about our needs. When a sudden job relocation was necessary, Jonathan quickly helped us get ready for yet another sale and also alleviated our worries during a difficult housing market. Thanks to Jonathan’s persistence, professionalism and “can-do” attitude, our house was sold and the move was made in time. Thanks to Jonathan’s dedication he really made us feel like we were his only client which was very important to use – and valued that customer service. We look forward to working with Jonathan in the future.”

“My wife and I not only consider Jonathan as an excellent Realtor, but rather a long-term business partner. When we purchased our first home, Jonathan worked tirelessly over the course of five months, helping us find the perfect home in the ideal location for our needs at that time. Since then, Jonathan has helped us sell that house in less than a week and find and purchase our new home in less than 24 hours. We don’t know how many more homes we will buy and sell in the Twin Cities but we will continue to use Jonathan for our real estate needs and would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of high quality professional service.”

Several years ago we worked with Jonathan in searching for a home in the twin cities. Many weeks into the process and much effort on Jonathan’s behalf, we made a lifestyle change and decided to move out of state. Jonathan truly and sincerely wished us the best and even offered some recommended agents who would be able to assist us in finding a home.
Since then, we made the mistake of not taking Jonathan’s advice and had some awful experiences with other agents. So when we decided to move back to the twin cities we gave Jonathan a call because we were impressed with his service, knowledge, experience, but most importantly attitude. In starting our home search we were a little nervous due to both of us starting new jobs and concerns of finding a home which would meet our needs and wants. We really appreciated the vision Jonathan had when looking at homes and helping us identify specific characteristics each house had to offer. We found a home that met our criteria as well as offered us the opportunity to put some “elbow grease” into some cosmetics updates – which is what we were looking for.
We love our new home. Jonathan was with us every step of the way from negotiating a great price, helping with our questions on the home buying and mortgage process, analyzing the results of our private home inspection, to the preparation of our closing. He was there when we moved in to make sure everything went smoothly. Jonathan wasn’t just our agent – he was more of a teammate!

We have recently relocated from Chicago but during the moving process I had to live in short term housing in the Twin Cities while Dennis remained back in Illinois to focus on selling our current home. It was a very stressful time but Jonathan’s services helped in easing a lot of anxieties. Jonathan is the ultimate professional and knowing that I was on the house hunting mission by myself he listened to my exact specifications we needed in our next house and he efficiently narrowed our search and helped us find the perfect home. Jonathan checks on every detail, follows up, and communicates like no other realtor I have worked with; he really took care of us and listened to our specific needs.

Moving from Atlanta to the Twin Cities, my wife and I had one week designated for our home search. With such a short duration of time to work with, Jonathan’s services were at our complete disposal focusing 100% on our efforts in finding a home. Before our searched he asked us specifics about what we needed and wanted in our ideal home. Jonathan was extremely patient and flexible with us when we changed our criteria search twelve times. On the twelfth time, we made a decision to pursue new construction and Jonathan knew right where to bring us; he already had a good relationship with a builder, who could accomodate our needs, and he was an invaluable advocate during the construction process. My wife and I were busy with a new job and a newborn baby, so it was comforting to know that Jonathan was out at the construction site day and night lobbying on our behalf. He was also very helpful with making sure we had all of our “ducks in a row” for the closing. We closed on the home!
