Residential real estate sales
|Minna and her team found me the perfect home. The house met all of my wishes even with the very compressed time scale involved. Home buying can be difficult at best, but Minna's experience and network of friends made the entire experience a valued one. I also appreciated their commitment to me as a customer and recommend you reach out to her when looking to buy your next home.
|"Whatever words I use in this review won't do Minna justice. She did an absolutely phenomenal job as our agent and shepherded us through the tricky ins and outs of a short sale. Finding a buyer wasn't too hard, but the process with our mortgage lenders was. These transactions are not for the faint of heart, but I always knew we were in good hands. Probably the most important quality for a real estate professional in my opinion is accessibility. Minna always answered our emails, texts and calls. I tried not to abuse the privilege by bombarding her, but even during non-working hours, she was always patient. Kind of related to accessibility is flexibility, and she came to our home late in the evening to accommodate my schedule & my wife's schedule as well. Two other qualities I value highly are integrity and accountability. Towards the end of our odyssey, there was a misunderstanding between us and the seller about an appliance. I emailed Minna about it, and chatted with our Attorney as well. As it turned out, the mistake was essentially mine yet Minna still offered to chip in if it ended up costing us anything. She did not have to do that, and could have easily shrugged her shoulders and put the ball in my court. That gesture spoke volumes to me about the kind of person and professional she is. As it turned out, our attorney who Minna referred to us did an equally phenomenal job and it didn't end up being an issue. The thing to take from this is you can completely put your trust in Minna. In closing, she did something I didn't think was possible. We had to relocate for family reasons, and we were substantially underwater. I didn't think there was any way it would happen for us, but she never gave up. When the banks hemmed or hawed, she kept after them. When one of the lenders issued an initial denial, she demanded an explanation and reopened our submission. In the end, both lenders accepted short payoffs and our family was able to make that move. In my profession, I deal with many real estate agents and sadly, I see many who quite literally "mail it in", and sometimes for astronomical commissions. Minna worked harder than any other real estate agent I've ever seen. I strongly recommend her as a real estate agent, especially if you are considering a short sale."
|"Words cannot describe how lucky I was to work with Minna and her team. I would highly recommend her to everyone. She guided me the whole way through this crazy process of a short sale with such professionalism. She was honest about the challenges that came with selling my 2 bedroom home, and extremely helpful when it came down to getting the nitty gritty done to prepare the place for showings and get the highest bid for my place during a time when the market was slowing down. Being new to the real estate market, she was honest and patient with me. I always felt comfortable asking her questions and trusted that she would steer me right. And that she did! She fought for me, with me, and everything in between with care and respect. If you're looking for an agent that will work hard for you and truly do everything possible to make your deal work, then Minna is the one for you."
|"Wow, where to begin?! Minna Reid is top notch. She knows her field, and knows it inside and out. I originally reached out to Minna after sitting down with some other realtors, including the one I used to buy my house. I still wasn’t convinced any of them could help and had the appropriate knowledge level. After searching the web and seeing such great reviews for Minna, I sent off an email. I got an out of office message for that week. However, that did NOT stop her from replying to me within hours AND setting up an appointment for the very next week. WOW! I was already impressed. That was only the beginning. Minna came to our house and level set us with reality very quickly (& nicely). It was totally what we needed AND nothing the other agents did. We did various renovations/upgrades and tried to tell ourselves they all counted and would bring us more $$. Ha, not in this market! Once we got listed, Minna hit our price point on the nose, and we got a buyer. Now onto the craziness of dealing with the mortgage company. Honestly the hurdles she jumped thru for us and the incompetence she was put up against would make anyone rip their hair out. If I was her, I swear I would have run for the hills. She dealt with this for months!!! Along with my uncanny ability to think of questions upon questions to ask her. Yet, she hung in there and was awesome to deal with. She truly cares about her clients you can really tell. She’s always available, every email /text/call I sent was answered quicker than you’d even imagine. She really is the REAL DEAL. She knows her stuff, and no matter what came up she was on it. She’s got a great personality and even better sense of humor. Even though it was quite the roller coaster ride, having Minna on our side I knew we’d get to the end. And, we did. I will recommend Minna to anyone. She will get the job done. The only regret you might have is not calling her FIRST! I sure wish I did. People like her are a rare find, ones who know their field; and are truly good, caring people. Don’t miss the opportunity to work with her! Minna- Thank you again, without your dedication and knowledge who knows where we’d be. You helped us move on to the next (amazing) chapter in our lives & and we could be more thankful. I will refer you every chance I get!! Take Care my Friend!"
