Our Testimonials

Kelly – Prior Lake, MN -- Sep 2019

Rod Tietz is the type of man that dedicated his time to help me during one of the most challenging and difficult times in my life. I contacted him, because I thought I was going to lose my home. The home my children were born and raised in, and the only home they have. My life had left me with a loan that was not in my name, and was attached to my home. Over a 2 year exhausting journey Rod stood by my side and helped me navigate negotiations, court appearances, and all of the many hardships along the way. I ended up keeping my home, refinancing, and having my name only on the title. I could not have done it without Rod and his support. Rod has been my rock through this entire experience even though he knew he had nothing to gain, but yet he dedicated his time and support. If you are looking for a loyal, dedicated, genuinely great person for your real estate needs, Rod is who you want by your side.

Roy Larson – Eden Prairie, MN -- Sep 2019

From my first conversation with Rod in early February 2019 and every single conversation of the home buying process, Rod has impressed me and my wife with his honesty and integrity, his world class customer service and his knowledge and experience in real estate. Since we moved into our dream lake home, he and his wife have brought food over and introduced us to their friends, their church and every person I have needed to do business with in order to get our lake home set up. I have know him for 3 months but given his positive and servant attitude and his consistent actions, I already consider him a dear friend. Many people have told me Rod’s nickname is “Mr. New Prague”. He grew up and has lived in town his whole life. Rod has a tremendous reputation and he is the man to work with!

Absolutely Outstanding! -- Jan 2016

“There is nobody more kind, respectful, and professional than Rod Tietz. It was our first time buying a home and it was such a great experience. First off, Rod took time out of his day to explain the house buying process and loan types in detail, even before we had officially decided to buy a house and go with him as our realtor. When we did start looking with him, he added us to a website that was updated constantly on houses for sale in the area that we wanted to live. Rod was literally watching this website and the house market every day; if a new house came up, we would go out that day. We would usually check out multiple houses a day, even if they were miles apart. He was flexible with our work schedules, including weekends. With his many years of experience he was able to give us feedback on appliances, roofing, furnaces, floors, drainage around or in the house…you name it and Rod had advice to give. We never felt pressure to buy a house; he was determined that we find “the right one”, even if we had to look at 100’s of houses. We came to trust Rod, and with that trust after looking at about 50 houses he found us our house! He helped us find a house inspector, and was especially helpful throughout the house closing process. We came to feel like Rod was family, and actually missed going out and looking at houses with him after we found “The One”. Rod made clear that when we purchased our house that we could always call him with questions or concerns on situations that may arise in the world of home ownership. And we do call him and, as always, he is always very helpful and kind. There is no better person or realtor that Rod Tietz. I would recommend him to anybody any day!”

Professionalism, Honesty, Time -- Jan 2016

“When I was told I qualified for a mortgage the race was on to find a location. Rod was awesome we spent a good 6 weeks several times a week looking at property. He helped me with my evaluations to make sure it would be right for me. He was with me for the entire process and he made me feel good about my choices. I am forever grateful for his ability to educate me as we went, I feel like my entire experience was totally awesome and wonderful. Very very grateful for all of the time he spent with me to get it right.”

Absolutely Amazing! -- Oct 2015

“We met with Rod in February of 2014, he explained everything to us and pointed us to an awesome mortgage person. We found out there were a few things that we needed to take care of. Rod was with me every step of the way. He met with me once a week sometimes twice a week for over a year to get us to our end goal of owning our very first home. Rods customer service was above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor. He is absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend him as your realtor if you are in the market to buy or sell a home! And the best part is we bought our first home with no money down!! I can’t thank him enough for what he has helped us achieve for our family.”

True Life Real Estate a truly great experience! -- Oct 2015

“Rod Tietz is the real deal. We had a fantastic experience working with him as we bought our home last month. He is motivated to meet the needs of those he serves. More than that, he genuinely cares for his clients and wants what is best for them. He took the time to listen to our needs and desires and then showed us practically how we could get there. Rod was on top of every step and coached us through the entire process. After looking at several houses, Rod called me one night and told me that a house had just come on the market that would be perfect for us. He met my wife and I there that night and we were able to put in an offer the next day. He went above and beyond. He knows the industry and he knows this area and uses both to help his clients achieve what they need. He has a reputation for integrity and honesty and it shows in his life and his business. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend True Life Real Estate to anyone either buying or selling property. We were thrilled with the experience and even more thrilled to be living in the home he found for us. You will not be disappointed.”

Rod Tietz was great to work with! -- Oct 2015

“Rod was great to work with. He worked hard finding us a home.”

Knowledgeable service -- Aug 2015

“As a first time home buyer, I thought I knew the ins and outs of home buying until I actually did it. Thankfully I had Rod Tietz as my realtor. He was very knowledgeable on all the different situations we encountered. It truly felt like I had someone in my corner working for me to help me get what I wanted at the price I wanted. Having the knowledgeable experience on my side really made the process less scary than I first thought it was and really made feel at ease. Coming up on a year of living with my new home I have yet to feel any buyers remorse. The network of finance people also made the process so easy. The market was tight and time was of the essence. Rod was quick to let me know about new listings and view them as soon as we could. Long story short… a major life decision could have not went any better.”
