Ed helped my husband and me sell our current home and buy a new one. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and gave good, honest advice. Ed was always willing to answer questions and provide guidance. we followed Ed's advice and he never steered us wrong. He also managed to make what could have been a very stressful time, fun.
Ed has been very helpful since I just moved from a different state, about a year before I purchased my current place. Ed helped me navigate the process using his professional skills, and knowledge about the neighborhood and local market. I'm very happy to recommend Ed.
Ed helped my husband and I both buy and sell our home. He worked hard to help us get the results we needed and wanted with both transactions. Ed is very knowledgeable and was able to help us navigate the entire buying and selling process.
My husband and I worked with Ed Schaefer for the recent purchase of a rental property. We were so pleased with the level of service, expertise, and guidance we received from Ed. We have purchased many properties over the years and this was by far our best experience! We are excited to work with Ed for many more rental purchases! Thank you, Ed!!!
Ed was a great partner in the process of buying a home. I was a complete novice and he helped me through every step of the process and went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with what was happening. Since he's also fixed up a number of homes, he was able to give me tips on renovations and estimates of how big of a project I might be taking on - which helped weigh the actual costs of a home. Overall, a truly great experience!
I was a first time home buyer and Ed helped me discover what I was looking for in a home. He was always available to show me the houses I was interested in at times that were convenient for me. I love my place and Ed really was the best. I've recommended highly to friends who are looking for an agent.
Ed is a great guy to work with. He was professional, friendly and got the job done in a timely manner. His follow up was great and he proved to be the right guy for me!
Ed was our realtor on both ends, selling and buying. He knew the Edina/Southwest market well. He was responsive and professional throughout the process. Highly recommend Ed.
Ed, helped us find a townhome in 2007 and he was excellent so we used him again when buying a house in 2013.
He is extremely responsive and very knowledgeable of the markets and purchasing processes. Though our search for finding the new house was a slow 2-year ordeal, he made us feel like we were his only client. I highly recommend Ed!
Ed was a great find. His laid back attitude hides what an real estate expert he is. He is a strategic thinker - which helps him anticipate our needs and what we might expect from potential buyers. That meant he seemed to be prepared for everything. He learned the market in our neighborhood which led to our property being priced appropriately.
Beyond his great technical skills, he is great at the customer service aspects of his role. He was always accomodating to our needs to meet. He was great with the other real estate agents, neighbors, and potentail buyers.
When our property required some improvements, he had resources who were quick to respond and reasonably priced. He was very creative in finding middle ground for our negotiations which allowed for a less stressful process.
We were very pleased with Ed and strongly recommend him.
Ed helped me purchase 2 homes and sell another. Throughout each transaction, Ed was the consummate professional. He listed well to what I was looking for and was very patient when I backed out of one sale (which was driven by some foreclosure shenanigans). We spent hours together in the car and there was never the slightest amount of pushiness to get a deal done. He always treated me like I was his only customer when buying and his keen negotiation skills always left me feeling we got the best possible deal.
When he sold my house, I experienced the same focused effort. He advised where it made sense to make repairs/upgrades and helped us time the market absolutely perfectly. Contrary to normal practice, Ed thought we should price the house higher than what this know it all amateur realtor thought it should be priced at. And he was right...Not only did we get $15k more than I expected, the house had multiple offers and sold in 2 days.
I highly recommend Ed for his honesty, integrity, responsiveness, and follow through.
