Testimonials

Mike,
Nikki and I want to take a moment and thank you for the excellent job you did as our Realtor. You were able to answer every question and call out things that we would have never thought of since we had never been homebuyers. Your responsiveness, transparency, honesty and overall knowledge of the housing market/purchase process made our first-time home buying experience amazing. One of the best parts was that you did not stop your job at the purchase of the property. In our opinion, you went above and beyond with your follow up and willingness to help us even after the closing. There is no doubt in our mind that you will be our Realtor if we decide to ever move again, and rest assured that we will refer your name to any family or friends that are looking for a home in the Twin Cities.

Pete & Nikki

Mike, thank you very much for helping me find a new home. It was great working with you. You took the time to listen and understand what I wanted, and you were very refined and knowledgeable through the whole process. I can’t thank you enough!

Christian Moy

Thank you so much for all of your help buying our first home! You made a very confusing process seem easy and fun. We recommend you every chance we get. We enjoyed working with you very much. We were lucky to have connected!

Robert and Kristi Fecik

As first-time home sellers and second-time home-buyers, we were very impressed with Kricket and Mike’s professionalism, their ability to get the very best price for our townhome on Sanibel Drive, and their desire to take care of our needs and make a stressful move a much easier one. We highly recommend the Opheims for selling and buying your next home.

Robert and Robyn Theisen

It will be weird not having you show us houses! You have been such a fabulous help and very patient. I really appreciate it, and it has been a delight to work with you. I will definitely be referring you whenever I can!

Luann Yerks and Mike Benz

Going into the process of buying my first home was very nerve-wracking for me, but Mike was able to answer all the questions I had and helped put my mind at ease. Mike walked me through all the steps of buying my first house, from looking for a place to the final closing. During the entire process he made sure that I understood everything that was going on and that I was satisfied with the progress being made. Mike was able to find me a great home that fit within my budget and my tastes. Mike also went the extra mile to help me out with the loan process. I can’t thank him enough for all the help he gave me and would highly recommend him as a realtor to anyone. The next time I buy and/or sell a home, I will definitely want Mike to be my realtor again!

Stacey Rausch

[Mike] was really more of a friend than a Realtor. We had no idea what to do, and Mike helped us out A LOT! We don’t think we would be where we are now if it wasn’t for Mike. We will recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling. Thank you, again.

Lisa Colbeth and Aaron Lorenzen

Mike, you went above and beyond our expectations from the start to the finish of our buying and selling process. Erin and I would highly recommend you to any of our friends or relatives who may be looking to sell or purchase a house in the area. It was a pleasure to work with a Realtor that made the whole process hassle free.

Nate and Erin Cline

We’ll definitely keep telling our friends and families about Kricket and Mike for help in their house searches. We’ll try everyway possible to get more clients under Kricket and Mike. The only thing that they need to change is more marketing so that more people know them!

Dipankar Bhowmick & Barnali Dey

Thank you again Kricket for your help with negotiating the purchase of our first home. The time, care, and counsel you provided us has been just priceless, and we greatly appreciate it!

Kacey and Carlos Morrow

Working with Mike and Kricket is like working with family. They are the best!

Lorraine Forslin

Working with Mike was amazing. Everything was so easy and moved quickly. Mike offered excellent advice, answered every question and helped me make informed decisions. I 100% recommend Mike Opheim.

jameswayneschneider

Very helpful and responsive, without being over bearing. Friendly and patient and honest when asked his opinion. That’s the kind of salesperson I like. And being new to the area he was very helpful with local resources.
Highly recommend him.

My wife and I met Mike through our kickball team and decided to work with him when purchasing our first home in South Minneapolis. The process went extremely smoothly, and after we outgrew that home in a few years, we partnered with Mike again on our new (and current) home in Eagan. So we’ve worked together as buyers and sellers.

There are 3 particular reasons we’d recommend Mike:

First, Mike is very ENGAGED. He listened closely to what we wanted and did a great job finding properties that were a match. That was useful as we didn’t waste any time looking at obvious misfits.

Second, Mike is THOROUGH. There were a few houses we were initially liked, but Mike pointed out things a less experienced person might miss. For example, one house had what appeared to be a gorgeous finished basement. But Mike pointed out some extremely damp carpet indicating serious issues with the foundation. His guidance helped us avoid expensive mistakes!

Third, Mike is CASUAL. We appreciated that Mike took a lot of the tension, stress, and confusion out of the process by being personable yet direct. It obviously helped that we were friends, and it made the home-buying and selling experience more enjoyable than we expected.

We’re life-long clients as long as Mike wants to work with us!

brianmhash

Very educated in real estate, very prompt and efficient to work with!
Mike has been our family realtor for almost 10 years! He found us a great condo in the North Loop, sold it and helped us find a great home in Minnetonka!

jillcarney29

Mike is that “realtor” who is not a realtor – he is an honest friend who understands your needs and points you in the right direction. Buying a house is a BIG STEP and when you have a realtor who looks out for you, half of your battle is won! We highly recommend Mike for his knowledge about the area, the feedback on the property listings that are on the market and making sure that all is taken care in every step of the way! He represented us(the buyers) and made it very easy for us to have an open communication with the sellers.

aanchal khanna0

Mike is a trusted partner, friend and support system while selling our home. I cannot thank him enough for helping us navigate the process. He was extremely present, accessible and on top of every detail!

annaconnealy9

We were recommended to Mike by a friend and were extremely happy with his dedication to helping us find the right home. He was always willing and prompt to answer any questions we had via email, text or phone call. We requested to look at several homes and Mike was very fast to get showings scheduled. He was on time for all the showings and quick to reach out to the selling parties for any questions or concerns we had on the properties. He handled all the paper work when we finally choose a home and thoroughly walked us through all of it. He was with us for the final walk through and the closing. I would absolutely utilize Mike again in the future and recommend him to friends and family.

luckylohse

We had been looking for a new home for under two months. In that two months we saw dozens of homes and hundreds via internet. Throughout the process Mike was very patient with us even after we changed our location preferences more than once. He was honest and would tell us what we were looking at when we would go to see a home, everything from upkeep, updating, maintenance and neighborhood.
Now we are in a home that I couldn’t be happier with and look forward to building memories with my family in.

amberm0424

My wife and I recently purchase a home in Hopkins, MN using Mike as our relator. We’d been dragging Mike too and from listings for over a year and, despite our best efforts him out, he was patient with us. Moreover, he did everything in his power to ensure we purchased a home that was totally in line with what we were looking for. He never pushed us to move up in budget or to broaden our search if we weren’t interested.

For background, I found Mike through Zillow. At first I was very leery of working with a relator without a personal reference. That quickly changed when Mike invited my wife and I to coffee and took the time to answer all of our questions about reality, mortgages, and home ownership.

I realize that whoever reads this review will not know me personally, but take this as a personal reference. Mike exceeded all of our expectations as you can see from my ratings.

One last thing to mention. Mike has an good understanding of the real estate market as a whole. His sense for the Hopkins, MN market is exceptionally keen due to the fact that he resides in the area! My wife and I now enjoy bumping into him time-to-time.

Thank you, Mike.

tj bernard8

Working with Mike on buying our first home was a very smooth and enjoyable experience. He is friendly, professional, personable and very knowledgeable about the real estate industry. Mike did a great job of staying connected with us throughout the entire process and explained all the information in layman’s terms to ensure we understood every little detail. Lastly, Mike did a wonderful job of guiding us throughout the entire process by recommending mortgage lenders, home inspectors and home owners insurance.

zuser20150423183929715

It was an wonderful experience working with Mike. As first time buyers we had umpteen no of questions for him and he always cleared our queries and confusions with a smile in his face. Professionally he is very sound and has a good knowledge about everything. We were very lucky to have him with us whenever we needed him. I wouldn’t doubt a second to recommend him. We won’t hesitate to work with him again in future if need be. It’s because of his help guidance that we are we settled in our new abode. Thanks a lot Michael Opheim. God bless you.

zuser20180405165550878

Mike was recommended to us by two different family members who worked with him. We will also be recommending him to others who are looking for a realtor.

He was a pleasure to work with. He responds quickly to calls and emails. He is flexible. He stays on top of everything, and does additional research that will assist you with your home purchase. He is also very detailed oriented, and cross-checks all important paperwork.

I never realized how closely you work with your realtor, but through this process, Mike was always there and helpful. He treated the purchase of our home, as if he was purchasing it himself. He made the home-buying process personal and memorable!

Thank you, Mike. To future clients: You will not regret working with Mike.

Mike was fantastic! He was instrumental in getting me the house I wanted at the price I wanted. He listened to what I wanted and did the work to locate the houses I would be interested in. When it came to negotiating the price, his knowledge and expertise made it easy for me to feel comfortable with my purchase. He also made sure that the property was carefully inspected and took the time to make sure that all of my questions and concerns were addressed and resolved. He was a great pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.

He also was my agent for the sale of my primary residence in 2016. He did the same outstanding job!

marypuchalski

Mike was extremely helpful in our house search, especially as this was our first time buying a home. As we were looking for a home from out of state he was always available and looked at a number of homes on our behalf. He was flexible and patient as we determined our budget and desires in home features and neighborhood. Mike demonstrated his expertise throughout our offer process, negotiations, closing, and even after we moved in by reaching out to the sellers to with a few questions we had. My wife and I highly recommend Mike if you are looking for a realtor in the Twin Cities.

joseph jaffee

Mike was great!! He really was easy to work with and had a lot of knowledge. He was very professional and never made me rush on anything. He gave me his honest opinion and then stepped back to let me decide what to do. I am glad I got to work with him on selling my home and buying my new home. If I ever sell again I will make sure to give him a call.

krusier21

Michael was fantastic! My husband and I were searching for our first home and Michael was a wealth of knowledge and insight. He helped us understand the process and helped every step of the way. He understood our needs and helped us find the perfect home!

whitney bingham

Mike is an amazing, helpful, caring realtor. If this is your first time buying a house, Mike will guide you and help you every step of the way. Explains to you on the process and communicates with you on every thing he is doing to help you get the house off your dreams. Mike is easy communicate with and that’s what made the purchase of my house easy. Thank you Mike for your help and for making the purchase of my home be easy.

zuser20170119221426131

Mike was great throughout the whole process. Every time we called him, he answered right away or got back to us quickly. He had our best interest the whole time during the negotiation process. He informed us on all the paperwork and made recommendations that we would not have every known to make.

KellyMallinger

We had a great experience with Mike when we bought our first house 11 years ago, so naturally we called him up when it was time to sell. On both the buying and selling side, Mike did a super job for us. He was especially helpful in setting our selling price – our market had blown up over the past year and it was tricky deciding on a price. I feel that we asked for (and got) a very good price for our home based on his experience and advice. Mike was always very responsive and helped us greatly in deciding to accept our offer, then helped us to deal with the nitty-gritty of the process all the way through to closing. We appreciated all of his help at a very busy time!

solb0053

The first time I called Mike, he took the to find out about my family and me so that he could tailor our search to our needs. While viewing houses, he pointed out potential problems that I would not have noticed, which made the house search longer, but resulted in us finding a house that we love. We had an excellent experience working with Mike, and highly recommend him.

user67647389

Mike was more than great to work with selling our house and purchasing a new home. Mike was there for us 24/7 during this process. His expertise and voice of reason was a true blessing during the entire process. I felt he had our best interests in mind at all times. Mikes attention to detail and ability to interrupt our needs and concerns was second to none. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a realtor in the future!

lorenzen aaron

Mike was extremely helpful in all aspects of the process of selling our home. He seemed to have good knowledge of the area and the homes in the area. He always returned phone call very quickly.

grumpiest75

After a trying experience both buying and selling our home in Madison, Wisconsin, we were happy to find a great realtor in Minnesota! Mike knows the Twin Cities and surrounding areas well, which was especially helpful to us. He was patient as we worked together to find the best location and home for us. Mike’s communication with us was excellent, as he kept us updated and was quick to respond to inquiries from the initial house-hunting process until the closing. I also appreciated that he gave us his honest opinion about not only locations of homes, but also the overall condition and impression of properties. The other nice thing is that Mike can make good recommendations on service providers around the area. We were very impressed with the inspection service that he suggested, Cities Inspection. He has also offered to give other recommendations if needed and has even checked in since the closing. We will definitely be able to recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

ckelling10

This was our second time working with Mike – second time buying, first time selling. We had consulted him a few times over the years regarding upgrades to our house and did not hesitate to work with him again when we decided to sell. He met with us multiple times prior to listing to answer questions and give advice on staging, etc. Thanks to his efforts, our house sold in 3 days! Of note, he uses professional photographers for house pictures, which I think is a must, even in a seller’s market! Because our house sold so quickly, we were in a bit of a time crunch to buy as winter and the holidays were quickly approaching. Mike worked diligently with us to find our new home, including long days and trips that spanned the length of the west metro. We were able to put in an offer just in time to close on both houses on the same day. Thanks to Mike and the people he collaborates with on closings, our closings went remarkably smoothly and we were moving into our new home by noon. Throughout the buying/selling process, Mike was very responsive, detailed-oriented, and patient. Plus, he’s a genuinely good guy. I have recommended him to many and will continue to do so!

malaga00

Mike Opheim was recommended to me by a woman I work with who had used Mike to list/sell her previous house and to find/purchase her new home. She gave him a glowing recommendation, as I can as well. We only looked at homes one day, but the one I bought was the one Mike added to the list. He was a joy to work with, helpful, and full of information. He referred me to inspectors, plumbers, electricians, etc., he helped get the sellers to make some changes before closing, and he was on hand for the inspection, the walk through, and the closing. He always gave me his honest opinion which I appreciated. Since the closing, he’s still keeping in touch. I hope to not move for a long time, but if I did, I would work with Mike again – and will refer him to friends.

susanlouise1228

Mike was an amazing partner for us while searching for and purchases a new home as well as selling our previous home. His knowledge of the market and location was extremely helpful and he delivered on all fronts. He is a very detailed and supportive realtor. One I have recommended to close friends and family and will do in the future.

Anna Stover

Mike was everything we were looking for in a realtor for buying our first home. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and truly listened to our needs. Mike is one of the rare realtors who is conscientious enough to make sure you are aware of both the good and bad aspects of a potential home, especially factors that could impact a home’s resale value. Being new to the twin cities, Mike helped us explore and hone in on the area we were most interested in buying. Mike’s communication style was professional and relaxed; he was able to explain the processes and terms in a way we could easily understand. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home!

kendraehash

Mike Opheim truly listens to a client’s must-haves when it comes to a home purchase. He is a consummate professional and even prevented me from moving on homes with issues I didn’t initially notice. He had my best interest at heart, and that is rare these days. I could go on and on about how positive the experience was, but suffice it to say, I highly recommend working with him.

msensat

We are first time home buyers and Mike took really good care of us. He was patient with us and had an idea of what where our requirements for our new home. We found a house we love and are currently moving in. Couldn’t ask for a better realtor!

zuser20150605120444029

Mike helped my wife and I purchase our first home, which was located in South Minneapolis. Since it was our first time, there was a lot we didn’t know about the process. He was able to help us find “diamond in the rough” homes we overlooked, and also pointed out potential issues we missed in others. Mike’s knowledge of the local market helped us find great neighborhoods that fit our lifestyle, and he was extremely responsive throughout the process. Mike connected with us an excellent team (finance, inspectors, closing agent, etc.) resulting in a relatively low-stress and very positive home-buying experience!

Brian Hash

We lived out of state and looking to move back to MN and retire. Mike was recommended to us by a friend. Mike was extremely easy to work and kept us well informed of what was going on with the market over the time we worked with him from Jul 2015 to Jun 2016. Limiting our visits to MN, but each packed with a # of places to view in short periods of time I’m sure was not easy to put together. Mike made our showing times together very smooth. He was always well informed of the places and areas we looked at from Plymouth to St. Paul. I appreciated his honesty if a place didn’t look well kept or feel right. He even accommodated us by showing a handful of places to two of our relatives (as our proxies) who lived in Twin Cities. During the buying, negotiating and purchase processes Mike kept us well informed in advance the steps to be taken and documents needed. He always thoroughly explained the documents we had to sign. We felt very comfortable working with Mike and will readily recommend him as an agent.

patbehounek

Mke’s real estate knowledge & finesse help guide us through every step of putting our home up for sale. From staging our home to the marketing material to negotiating the sale- Mike was extremely responsive, engaged and professional. Thanks to Mike’s expertise, our home was on the market less than a full day & we had numerous offers. Mike walked us through each offer, assisted us in negotiating with the buyers and was always available to answer our many questions.

lojoj1

Mike provided on the spot and timely support over the holidays when we needed to list and sell a house. I was out of town for much of that time and he was able to make sure the process went smoothly. He coordinated the local tasks so that when I was available we had the needed paperwork and meetings set up and didn’t waste any time.
Additionally, he knows the area and the competition. He helped us price the house so that it sold quickly and for an amount we were happy with. I recommend Mike to my family and friends.

KAGriffiths

Mike recently helped our family sell my mother’s house in Minnetonka. The home sold quickly and Mike was very helpful through the entire process. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to sell a home.

griffithspaul08

I was referred to Mike by my financial advisor, best advice ever ! Mike is personable and professional. I highly recommend Mike, he and the Edina realty staff made for a great selling experiance, which can get crazy sometimes !
I want to Thank You Mike for making the selling of my mothers house a good one. And thanks again for your time and knowledge, which made for a shorter market time and a quick sell.

Pamandgarypeterson

We just closed on our house and MIke was seriously amazing! We met Mike at an open house he was holding and after chatting with him about the area we really got a good feeling about him. We had been looking for a realtor on and off for awhile and we kept running into issues – they were too busy, too pushy or not understanding what we were looking for. He was so helpful, responsive and took the time to help us with any questions or concerns. As a first time home buyer things seem very overwhelming – Mike walked us through the whole process. He negotiated our price down to fit the home we were trying to buy. He pointed out factors regarding the homes we had looked at that we may not have noticed. If you are looking for someone who is able to really understand your needs and wants he is it. You can tell he is passionate about what he does , fun to be around and an overall genuine person. Not to mention any time I called he called immediately right back and that was the same for texts, emails and all forms of communcation – really showing he cared about the process and helping his clients. Stop looking – he is it!

rachelmaddaus

My wife and I just closed on our house this month! Mike is just a great guy. He obviously has a passion for what he does, and he always made us feel like he was on our team. We are first time house buyers and the whole process seemed overwhelming at first, but Mike walked us through it step by step. He was patient and helped us to understand the “ins and outs”. Mike has an attention for detail that was very reassuring to us, he would uncover things about a house that we wouldn’t have thought of after looking at a thousand houses. He invested his time and efforts 100% into making sure we found the perfect home! I would recommend Mike to anyone, whether you are a first timer like us, or you’ve done this many times before. He has tons of experience and knowledge. My wife and I would often joke that Mike should also be an interior designer because he could see the potential in properties and he is full of awesome creative ideas and projects. You’d be lucky to work with such a great guy who genuinely enjoys what he does and helping others. It is a rare thing to find someone so dedicated to their clients and invested in their success. Thanks so much for everything Mike!

williamdyck

I’ve heard some say Mike is a stickler for details. I found this to be true and am so grateful he has this gift. In his role, clients can be sure that the paperwork is complete and accurate and your interest is always his first priority. I recently had a home that is part of a small community – making it more difficult to sell because people looked at the last unit sold and even though they were different, buyers were influenced. Mike took charge with exceptional marketing materials and coached me through what items needed attention in the home before it would sell. The marketing materials he supplied were exceptional. His advice on pricing the home and approaching the market stellar. I highly recommend this realtor (buying and selling).
I’m not likely to sell / buy again for many years… (he helped me find the home I purchased as well) – but he will be the first name I refer my friends/family and clients to in the future.

Joyce Sealine

From the beginning Mike was extremely professional and personable. He was a great advocate for me whether it was giving me his honest opinion about a house we saw, navigating through inspection surprises or negotiating with sellers. He was always positive and i felt we were in great hands! Mike went above and beyond for me. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

klcello

Could not have asked for a better Real Estate Agent.
Honest, open, resourceful, and professional. Did a great job helping us purchase our new home and sell our old home. Thank you Mike!

cmpeters7

Mike was absolutely fantastic during our home selling process. He came out and looked over our house and told us recommendations / improvements to make in order to list. And he helped us settle on a final list price that was aggressive yet market-realistic. We had two offers at List Price within 12 hours of Listing and accepted an offer within 24 hours. Mike helped us through all the paperwork and everything we needed to close. And he helped us tremendously in negotiations. My wife and I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone we know buying or selling a home!

richards joshua w

Mike was present in all aspects of buying a house that we needed him to be. He was available to our needs, in touch and able to answer all our questions, and a pure pleasure to work with through the entire process. In addition, he gave us reliable recommendations on others to work with in those services he could not provide, including a moving company and an insurance agent. Overall, I will easily recommend him and his team to anyone that asks!

blakemalloy8

Mike started out as a real estate agent to help me buy a home and he quickly became a friend. He is so pleasant to work with and was so knowledgeable about each home I looked at. Not only did he pick great homes for me to look at, he was able to answer questions about the home’s mechanicals and other construction details that I didn’t know a lot about. He made me feel really comfortable with the home I ended up choosing. Since that home, I have used him to sell that house and buy another one. It has been 7 years since that first home buying process and he has kept in touch since. He is truly skilled at what he does and has a lot of passion for real estate, which shows in how great he is at helping with the buying and selling process! I would highly recommend Mike to any potential buyer or seller!

kjerstin rask

This is the third time I’ve worked with Mike Opheim. That alone speaks volumes about his knowledge level, professionalism and effectiveness. Mike leaves no stone unturned. He has both depth and breadth of knowledge. He skillfully manages details while keeping the broad picture in mind. I had a very specific (long) list of requirements. Together we found the perfect home in under three weeks, and closed 14 days later. Mike is well-connected. His referrals are experienced, collaborative professionals. For example, he recommended the mortgage banker, the closer, the house inspector, who not only got the job done in record time, each one was a pleasure to work with.

joyce6705

Mike was extremely helpful when I purchased my first home. We first met more than a year before I could actually buy, and he helped me get to know what to expect once I was finally able to start looking. He was extremely patient with me in my ever-changing wish list, and helped me find the perfect little home for me. He was familiar with the area and I felt comfortable relying on his knowledge to put me in a safe neighborhood in a great location. He’ll definitely be my realtor down the road when it is time for me to sell!

taylor kollitz

I was so impressed with the patience and local knowledge he had. He always took time to help me look at properties needed not be exactly what I needed. He was great at remembering what I liked about each property until he found our house of our dreams!

amberdunnelinell

Working with Mike has been a great experience. When we decided we wanted a bigger house we had a lot of questions about what it would take to find the home we wanted. Mike spent time with my wife and I anytime we asked. He was very knowledgeable and would point things out we never even thought of as we looked at new homes. Mike was able to help us find exactly what we were looking for.
When it came to selling our old house, he showed us how to get top dollar. He also explained why it made sense to do some things as well as why not to do somethings when we went to sell. We got an offer within a week of being on market due to Mike expertise. Thank you Mike!

jimringuette

When we decided it was time to purchase our first house, we were not sure what the heck to do. Who do we call? What do we need? Mike was recommended to us through a friend and we are so happy that he was! He was a great person to have with us in this journey. He was very knowledgeable and helped us immensely with our many, many questions. He was so patient with us (and our kids) and was a true professional. Even now, 9 months after we closed, we still keep in touch with him. He’s been ever so helpful with some home warranty information we needed and thank goodness for that! If you’re looking for a easy going, smooth process, I will tell you to go with Mike. He’s the real deal.

trishwise

As a first time homebuyer my husband and I had a great experience working with Mike. He was extremely helpful in explaining the home buying process with us. He was also very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. We also thought Mike was very knowledgable about value of properties we looked at and the items potential buyers should be aware of while looking at properties.

delisi nikki

Mike is a terrific Realtor. He was essential in buying and selling our new home. He was very knowledgable about staging our home for selling and listing price. Once we were listed everything went very quickly and smoothly. Buying our new home was even easier. When we were looking at homes to buy he provided us with important information to help us making a decision. I would highly recommend Mike Opheim as a realtor for selling and buying a new home.

luckylaura2005

We would definitely recommend Mike to someone looking for a realtor.We have worked with him in both buying and selling our home. He even used his connections to connect us to a great realtor out of state when we moved out of Minnesota He is very knowledgeable about the market and worked hard in both finding the perfect home for me and selling it. He is very honest and will work hard to meet your real estate needs!

BDey71

Mike helped us buy and sell our first home in Minneapolis. He was so wonderful when he helped us buy our home that when it came to selling it due to a quick move, he was our go-to guy! He is extremely responsive and consistently checked in to make sure we were aware of updates or if we had questions. We really appreciated his honesty throughout both buying and selling our home. He gave us great advice to help get our house ready to go on the market, which I think definitely contributed to how fast we were able to sell it. We relied on his expertise, and his experience and instincts helped us get our house sold extremely fast (only on the market for 9 days in January in Minnesota)! We moved out of state, and he made closing so easy for us. He is very trustworthy, and we would recommend him to anyone buying a home in Minneapolis!

maggie22686

I have used Mike as my realtor in purchasing several homes, one a condo in downtown Minneapolis and also a home in the west suburbs. I would highly recommend Mike as demonstrated by my repeat business. Mike is a good listener and observer and does a good job of identifying client needs (my needs as well as my wife’s). Mike is also very patient and giving of his time. Both of my home buying experiences with Mike lasted several months and we visited dozens and dozens of homes until we knew exactly what type of home we wanted and where in the Twin Cities we wanted to live. Finally, I’d highly recommend Mike as he is a very down to earth, approachable, and good natured person. He stays in touch and always takes the time to find out what I and members of my family have been up to. Overall, I would highly recommend using Mike as your realtor.

user5509720

I have purchased 3 homes with Mike Opheim as my realtor. I will continue to use Mike because he looks out for my best interest in a purchase, not his. This has earned him my trust.

Along with selling our home, Mike helped us find a great home after a very lengthy search. He was very patient and knowledgeable about many areas in the metro and we did cover a lot of them in our search. Highly recommend Mike, he’s honest, smart and has lots of experience.”

Mike helped us buy our first home. He was very responsive to all of our questions and gave honest feedback on why we should or should not consider each house. The entire process from looking to closing went very smoothly and we have no doubt Mike had our best interests in mind the whole time! Over the years, we have asked Mike questions about improvements we have made to our house and he has always answered quickly with helpful recommendations. If we decide to sell our house, we have no doubt who we will turn to for this! We definitely recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house!

Mike was critical in the process of us choosing our home. He is prompt, professional, and experienced. It really shows when he walked us through many houses, pointing out many details that we would normally be oblivious to. Mike was familiar with every area we looked and educated us on the schools and local attractions. Mike is a master of his craft and I recommend him to every one I know looking to buy a house!

Mike was a great help in selling our house. His pre-listing estimate of the house’s value was exactly what we ended up selling the house for, and his responsiveness was top notch when we had any questions or concerns about the process.

My family bought our first home with the help of Mike Opheim. It was a fantastic experience. Mike’s professionalism, and knowledge made us feel at ease. He was patient, and made sure we were able to choose the house that was best for us, and fit all of our needs.

Whether you are a first time homebuyer or experienced homebuyer would highly recommend Mike Opheim. As a first time homebuyer, the expertise, perspective and responsiveness Mike provided us was priceless. Mike provided insight that as a first time homebuyer we did not think about. He was excellent at explaining the entire path to purchase which eliminated any surprises. Mike always had our best interests (long and short term) in mind and was always quick to respond whether it was a text, phone call or email. If you are looking for a real estate professional that goes above and beyond the call of duty and is extremely knowledgeable on the marketplace Mike is your guy.
