Not all real estate companies are the same. When choosing a realtor, you should seek one that is responsive to your individual needs and knows the area well.

His name and reputation are on the line with every client. He will help you navigate all phases of your transaction to provide you a seamless experience. Selecting him as your professional gives you confidence because as a broker he has to operate to the best of the best standards of the Minnesota Department of Commerce.
Whether you are interested in building or purchasing, Rod has customized options for you. If you would like to build, through his partnership with Sherco Construction, he is able to offer you a 3% down program that allows qualified buyers to purchase a new home without a construction loan. (www.3downhomes.com). If you want to buy an existing home, Rod considers it his responsibility to help you find the property that’s right for you. He will set up a personalized Internet search that delivers instant emails of new listings to you within minutes of them entering the market so you can be one of the first buyers to schedule a tour. Unlike other realtors, Rod will take the time to arrange unlimited visits to homes in the area you are interested in so you can make an educated offer when you are ready. He will then help you plan your negotiation, draft an offer, complete inspections, select a title company and help you arrive at a successful closing.
If you are selling, he will give your listed property significant exposure with proprietary technology. Today, 90% of home buyers start their search on the Internet. Unique to True Life Real Estate Solutions is the ability to produce a video open house that plays in the virtual tour link of real estate websites across the internet and MLS with an engaging narrative that shares the story of your property. The video is accessible and will play 24/7. Buyer prospects watch your video and then schedule a tour to validate what they have seen. You might say the buyers come with a ‘prequalified interest.’ Uninterested persons move on and don’t waste your time on unproductive showings. The open house videos are also used to advertise on Facebook.
You have the option of choosing a professional who will focus on your individual objectives. Rod would appreciate the opportunity to be your agent. Just let Rod know when you’re ready to get started with your real estate experience. He is very responsive to questions and concerns. He will be happy to share his opinions and recommendations to help you achieve your goal.
“Rod is amazing to work with because he really cares about making the stressful process of buying a home – not stressful! Along with being a great listener so that he truly [understood] our needs, he wasalso creative, offering us some ideas on how to finance our home that saved us a TON of money! I would highly recommend Rod to anyone who is buying a home. He cares about you and wants to do what’s best for you, not him. That was very refreshing based on our past experiences.” —Exec trainer, 9/18/13
“Rod helped us secure a house in a hot real estate market. We signed up for his instant emails to ensure we had first looks at new listings. He also helped us secure financing with a local bank. This proved to be invaluable as we lost seven houses in multiple offers. It was frustrating — we were bidding $20,000 over list, had a strong down payment with no house to sell.
“One day Rod called me at work and stated a new listing just came up and we had to see it. He told me to check my email and I did. He then booked an appointment to see the house that evening. We wrote an offer that night; it was accepted two days later and we closed within 20 days. At closing we learned our new home appraised for $50,000 more than we purchased it for. Rod never was discouraged and his persistence really paid off. We would recommend him to anyone.”
