Sandy and team were great to work with. Communications were well managed. Our realtor was great to work with. Always positive, asked questions to clarify our needs, and flexible with our schedule. We looked across a large part of the metro area finally settling on the perfect home for us.by jensenmarkd

"The one thing that was better than expected Gary's value estimate on the house. It was spot on when the appraisal came back $5,000 above the purchase price! I haven't bought a house in 30 years and he's held my hand through the entire process keeping me informed about everything. He worked very late nights over both Saturday and Sunday waiting up for the seller's reply to our offer and negotiations. He also helped my daughter buy a house recently. Gary's just been really great!"by shegge2
The communications throughout the process was outstanding! We never were at a loss as to how things were proceeding. Sandy and her team are exceptional and totally professional, which means a lot to us. They are also extremely personal through it all, so that we always felt they had our best interest in mind.by dlb2africa
The one thing that made our experience better than expected was Sandy. We had approx. 60 buyer showings in the first 3 days, which was far more than we expected. Sandy helped us consider all our options, from the pre-listing preparation to offer negotiations. The communication throughout the process was really good. We were always kept up to date with each step and everything going on. Thanks for your hard work!by DennisJeziorski
As first time home buyers my husband and I were new to a lot of the process. Gary walked us through each step while maintaining open communication. He was patient as we searched for the right now to fit our needs. The appraisal came in well over purchase price which made us feel better. Gary was great to work with, and I would recommend him to others.by Alexis Cummings
I met Sandy at an open house a dozen years ago and saved her card so that I could call her when ready to purchase a home. Since then, Sandy and her team have helped me buy two different homes and sell one. In selling my last house, Sandy was fabulous - always prepared, always responsive and full of sound advice. She visited our home and made suggestions for getting it ready to sell. Those suggestions really paid off. Our house sold within days for over our asking price. Working with Sandy and her staff made the stress of selling a home much easier than I imagined. And in terms of purchasing, she and her team (Luke and Gary) gave sound advice both times in making a competitive offer. If/when the time comes to make another move, I know I'll call Sandy and her team.by Shannon Loehrke
The communication we received from Sandy, Brittany, and Linda was just great! We really appreciated the constant communication throughout the entire process. We've been in the same house for over 34 years so it felt like we were novices. Everyone on the team was so willing to help, which really helped us. We found Sandy after she listed and sold our neighbors home. Our neighbors gave her a good recommendation, and the rest is history now. :) Overall, we had a very, very good experience and it was all made very easy for us!by Linda Borgestad
All the details you guys did that I didn't even know had to be done, was unbelievable. I had no idea everything that needed to be done, and all of the communication advising me it was time to do each step, was very much needed and appreciated! I wasn't sure at the beginning that I even wanted to sell my house. Sandy helped me with this process and she told me that she's never had a seller who regretted selling when at the closing table... she was right, I definitely don't regret selling! Gary held my hand so patiently throughout every single hiccup and question I had when we began looking to purchase our new house. We had never been through selling and buying before and I had no idea what to do. I am so thankful for him, I never could've done it without him. Overall, your entire team's customer service was over the top. We always felt that we were important and that we mattered. In the world of big business today, that isn't' something you see often and I'm incredibly thankful.by J M
Gary Raeker provided us with the best realtor experience we have ever had thus far. Coming from Arizona we were unable to physically view any homes in person. Gary conducted virtual walkthroughs for every home we were interested in and gave us honest opinions about its condition. Gary has been very accommodating to our needs and concerns and educated us through the entire process. We have purchased a few homes and Gary has set the standard for what we expect from realtors. We will definitely use him in the future when we sell our home.by Paul Edwards
We had such a great experience with the Sandy Erickson team in both selling our home and finding us the perfect new home! We had the pleasure of working with Luke. We fell in love with a property and Luke helped us make an offer that was fair and walked us through everything. Since we moved so fast on buying a place, Luke had to list our current home extremely fast! He was very responsive, never pressured us, answered all of our questions thoroughly, and provided us with a great recommendation for mortgage lender. Everything went smoothly, we sold our house at 100% of our listing price and got us into a new place on the timeline we wanted. I couldn’t say enough great things about Luke and the entire Sandy Erickson team!by Mitchell McGrath
Brant Sacker was excellent and worked hard helping us find our forever home. I highly recommend Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team. After our first house fell through due to the house and the seller having problems, Brant and the Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team worked hard finding us a home that made us appreciate the first one didn't work out. We now have a beautiful forever home in a nice quiet neighborhood and in a better location.by Todd Garber
I just finalized my second closing with the Sandy Erickson real estate team. The first one was on the buying side of things and now I experienced the selling side. Both experiences were fantastic and the team was very responsive and professional. Would highly recommend them.by Jordan Meierhofer
Gary Raeker was AMAZING to work with. He was available to discuss and to show homes whenever needed. He was honest and made sure we got what was contacted.by dnsutton95
I highly recommend Sandy Erickson. She represented us in the sale of our home. Her knowledge, experience, connections, and staff made our home selling process very smooth. We followed all of her advice and were glad we did. She recommended what we needed to do (and what we did not need to do) to prepare our home for sale and gave us spot on advice on list price. She was able to expedite our listing preparations, and the photographer she engaged did an amazing job. Communications were always returned quickly. Working with Sandy was a great experience!by dkwhouse2
Working with Sandy went very well. It was nice to have her walk us through what needed to be done in preparation to sell. Sandy explained what we could expect from working with her and her team, and she kept her promise.by scott abercrombie
Sandy Erickson's team was great to work with. The team handled all the aspects of our buy/sell transaction smoothly, and we sold our home for more than the asking price. Definitely recommend! :)by Justin Andringa
I would personally rate my experience with the Sandy Erickson team higher than a five star rating. We were very fortunate and blessed to have had Jim Smrekar as our agent. He worked with my daughter who was purchasing her first home in Minnesota and keeping her parents in the loop who live in Washington. Jim communicated with all parties constantly via email, Face-Time and phone. I trust Jim explicitly and will give him my business in the future. In all honesty I feel like Jim is part of the family and he wasn't going to steer us wrong in the process and he didn't. He wanted Hanna to get into a good home not just anything.by Marcy Williams
The entire team from selling and buying were awesome to work with. Brant helped immensely with buying and Sandy helped with selling (she was great with anxiety controlling too). Highly recommend Sandy and her whole team!!by Stacey Giemza
Nothing but positive experiences with the Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team. Gary was an exceptional realtor. He was very helpful through my process as a first time homebuyer. The service from the whole team felt very personal and as if I was their only client. Would highly recommend!by B Skuta
I needed to sell my house and it was sold within a week. I got over the asking price and had six offers. This realtor knows her market and she looks after her client. This is one of the best experiences I've had with a realtor.by Penny Johnson
Sandy Erickson and her team are exceptional! We had an overwhelmingly positive experience from start to finish [from our initial meet with Sandy about a year before we planned to sell our home, to the time leading up to the listing going on the market, through the negotiating process of multiple offers, until the end of closing on our home]. Sandy and her team are warm and personable, organized, reliable, and prompt. Our communications (whether text, call, or email) were always responded to with impressive speed. The professional photos taken for our home listing were striking and flattering, and the marketing and advertising resulted in 65 showings of our home and double digit offers received. We are very thankful for the Sandy Erickson team!by laura vanderstreek
Sandy Erickson has been in the [realty] industry for years and is very knowledgeable about the home buying and selling process. She wants to make sure you are comfortable through every step. Sandy and her team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish when we recently sold our home. They are responsive and listen to your needs and want the home buying and selling process to go as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Sandy and her team!by Christa N.
It was a pleasure working with the Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team to sell our home and we can't recommend them enough! Their professionalism, strong communication, and trustworthiness were so appreciated during a time that can be somewhat stressful. We will definitely be using this team again in the future!by Megan D.
Sandy and her team go above and beyond to make sure your home gets listed and sold quick, as well as helping to find a new home to buy. One of our favorite parts of working with this team is their open communication and quick responses. If you are looking to buy or sell, look no further!by Heather P.
Sandy and her team have been amazing! Very knowledgeable in every aspect. Communication is always quick and complete. Selling my home after living there for 24 years I had a lot of questions and they were always handled with compassion. Huge thank you to Sandy and her team!by Amanda N.
I had a great experience with the Sandy Erickson Team, Sequoia is an awesome person and she made everything easy from day one until we purchased our house. Even though the listing agent made me kind of angry at the end, Sequoia did her best to help with anything she could. I will definitely work with them again, If I have to buy another house or sell my current house. Thank you again Sequoia.by Jamal N.
I am moving from MI to MN and needed a lot of local support. The Sandy Erickson Team was great to work with. Sequoia was super flexible and their flexibility and speed helped me secure my perfect condo in a really tight market. I highly recommend this group!by Melinda W.
Had a great experience with this team! Made the process of purchasing my first home so easy and stress free even in this difficult market! I knew nothing about the process when I first reached out to them and they provided such great guidance as well as helping me learn a lot along the way!by Julianna G.
We just recently bought a house using Sandy Erickson Realty Group. Our realtor Sequoia was always answering our questions in a timely matter and if she didn’t know the answer she would find it for us. We never felt pressured to buy or look at a house that didn’t check all of our boxes. We are grateful to have the Sandy Erickson Team recommend to us when we started our home searching process.by Janessa U.
Gary and Sequoia went above and beyond supporting us to find the right place for us! The knowledge they had on houses, markets, and all the like was so helpful and calming to my worried brain as a first time home buyer. I never felt worried in their hands! Gary knew what to look for in a house that I didn’t want to worry about right away, and Sequoia was readily available for the million houses I sent that I wanted to see! Dream team! 10/10 recommendation!! We absolutely love our home and we’re thriving 1 month in!by Ravin B.
I’ve purchased and sold several homes in various states outside of the Midwest and this was my first opportunity to have a home selling experience in Minnesota. Every real estate professional and their team when applicable has a different approach and without a doubt Sandy Erickson and her team are the most efficient, professional, and communicative group I have ever worked with. Her market insight and consultation made the selling process so much better for every party involved and I admire their high level of integrity. It’s especially difficult to manage a real estate transaction from across several states but Sandy Erickson Realty had a solution at the ready for every stage in the process. I would recommend this amazing team to anyone considering buying or selling a home or contemplating a future occasion to do so. For best results and experience, I would work with them for any of my real estate needs or projects. I can’t thank them enough for their extra care!by Cheri A.
Gary Raeker was our Realtor and I couldn’t recommend him more. He was extremely professional and had great communication. Always very quick to respond and keep us in the loop with every hugging when purchasing a property. The whole time my wife and I felt it went so smoothly, which I am sure Gary navigated all the obstacles for us so we weren’t stressed through the process. Hope to work with him again in the future.by Adam Z.
Gary did an awesome job walking us through the whole process of buying a house as first time homebuyers! He gave us a whole presentation walking us through how it all works at the beginning and pointed out both the good things and the bad at each house we went to and explained why. We never felt like he was being pushy or trying to sway our opinions. The rest of the Sandy Erickson team was also super helpful throughout the process. We would recommend Gary and them to anyone!by Sarah B.
Gary helped us (patiently) to find our new home and moved quickly when it was time to make an offer. Selling our home went quickly but turned into an arduous process that was handled expertly by Sandy and her team taking away the stress of closing on our old home as we were settling into our new home. A+++++ Rating! Highly recommended!by Ken M.
We worked with the Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team to sell our house this summer and I would give them more than 5 stars if it were available! We are now working with them on finding our next home and no matter who we work with, we love the responsiveness and professionalism that they represent. Would highly recommend this team!by Janice W.
Sandy and her team were FANTASTIC through all phases of our home sale! They impressed us in so many ways and made the process of selling our home immeasurably easier and MUCH less stressful. They are knowledgeable, efficient, and organized. Their professional stager really helped our house shine. Their photographer not only took amazing photos of the inside and outside of the house (including drone footage), he created maps of every floor, a 3D dollhouse plan, and virtual walkthrough. Sandy worked with us on the pricing strategy, and we felt we really found the "sweet spot" for our market without leaving anything on the table. We had multiple showings right away and a very nice offer within 24 hours. Even after this, Sandy and her team continued to be very helpful - with the appraisal process, the closing details, the final walkthrough with the new owners. We HIGHLY recommend the Sandy Erickson Real Estate Team!!by Trudy O.
