Real Estate agent working in the Minneapolis, MN area and western suburbs, including the Lake Minnetonka area. Short sale and foreclosure expert, both buy and sell side.
Get to know Jim Sawicki
Hi and thanks for looking me up. I am a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Burnet. I work primarily with first time home buyers and have great experience helping them navigate the foreclosure and short sale market. I am a CDPE(Certified Distressed Property Expert) real estate agent as well, which means I can help clients negotiate out of foreclosure and into a much more favorable short sale situation. I have lived in the Lake Minnetonka area for over 20 years and work with my mother, Kathy Sawicki who's 15 years of experience in lake shore real estate and CDPE designation are always put to good use! Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions related to foreclosures, short sales, or real estate in general.
On the buy side, I specialize in finding well priced short sale and foreclosure opportunities for first time home buyers. I don't go out and find the cheapest home, I find the homes that are the best long term value and present them to my clients with all the information they need to make informed decisions. I also help them navigate the buying side of the short sale process, which can be stressful, difficult and sometimes very long. I let my buyers know what to realistically expect from banks and lenders in these situations.
On the sellers side, I can help sellers determine true market price for their home, then market it aggressively through multiple avenues (MLS, Craigslist, our own website, Star Tribune print and web ads, Coldwell Banker networking, open houses, ect.). I work with my sellers to quickly get the lender negotiators involved and working together to get homes sold before foreclosure happens, thus helping clients save their credit scores and financial health.
