    Testimonials

    “I cannot express how much I love these people. We attended a first time homebuyers class run by the Jacob Olson team and chose them as our realtor. Since they run classes for beginners, they are so experienced and patient with first time homebuyers. They explained everything from “escrow” to “homestead application” in terms that were actually easy for us to understand. They were so patient with us when it came to selecting a house, with incredibly open working hours and WITHOUT any pressure to look around or make a decision. We had worked with other realtors and bankers in the past, and they were all so pushy, while the Jacob Olson team waited until we were ready. They were super encouraging when we were frustrated and disappointed with the process. They explained each step of the process and all our options for each one as well as their recommendations and gave us time to make each choice. When we selected and purchased a house, they mentioned that they would throw us a housewarming party. I jokingly asked if they would cover our backyard wedding in a year and was told they would cover the food or decor to a certain dollar amount. On top of that, these literal angels are addressing, stuffing, and stamping all my wedding invites! When I talk to friends they say they’ve never heard from their realtor again after they bought their house. The JOT is completely different and are like friends of the family. They send us care packages, invite us to quarterly appreciation events, and are always so friendly- they genuinely for their clients. I wouldn’t ever chose a different realtor!”

    “Tim was amazing! We took the First Time Home Buyer community Ed class in Elk River and met with Jacob and Tim afterwards and decided we wanted them to help us buy our first home. Tim was flexible with our crazy schedules and showed us many houses. He was thorough, very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. (He even helped us put a bid in on our house while he was on vacation!) I will always recommend The Jacob Olson Team.”

    “We worked with the team, primarily with Erin, and we couldn’t have had a better experience! We were first time home buyers and they were there every step of the way and took the time to explain the process. Erin was always quick to respond anytime of the day when we had questions and worked with our busy schedules. She was very professional and extremely knowledgeable as well as very kind and understanding. Erin helped us find our dream home and we couldn’t be more thankful for the Jacob Olson Team.”

    “My entire family has used Jacob Olson on several occasions over the past 6 years but this year was a crazy year for my wife and I. We bought or sold 4 different homes this year alone due to job location changes and Jacob exceeded our expectations in both getting us great value for the property we sold but also helping us to get what we wanted when we went to buy.”

    “Jake was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the home buying experience! He paid close attention to detail, about our likes and dislikes, and found us the perfect home! There is nobody I would have rather worked with when purchasing a home!”

    Maple Grove, MN – Buyer

    “I worked with both Jacob Olson and Brittany Grundy while looking for homes and eventually buying one in September 2018. Brittany was very responsive and worked around my schedule to book home showings and meetings. She knew a  lot about the areas in the Twin Cities that I was looking for a home in. Brittany answered my questions very quickly and if she didn’t know the answer she would ask Jacob or another team member. I learned a great deal about the home buying process from them before I even started looking which took a lot of stress away. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. The quarterly buyer/seller appreciation events are a huge plus too!”

    Osseo, MN – Buyer

    “From our first conversation and meeting, Jacob was always very personable, professional, and clearly knowledgeable about real estate, construction, and neighborhoods. He answered or found answers to all our questions and researched homes that met our criteria. He kept us informed throughout the process and was accommodating to our needs and schedules. Because of his attention to detail, the sale and closing went smoothly. His relationship to clients obviously does not end with the sale. He provided an online service with tasks of the week to help with the moving process. Jacob continues to keep in touch and is obviously genuinely concerned about his clients. We would highly recommend the Jacob Olson Team to anyone buying or selling a home!”

    “Brittany was available day and night to answer our questions about buying a home. She made this experience run so smooth, it was really nerve-racking because we were first time home buyers. Brittany added a real human touch to the process, we are beyond happy with the service she provided!”

    Ham Lake, MN – First Time Buyer

    “I met Jacob because he specializes in homes in my area. I was impressed in his team’s knowledge of not only my area, but the greater Twin Cities. He met me and right away I was confident his team was going to take care of everything. I worked with Brittany and she knew what to look for, what to highlight and we found my new home. I wouldn’t chose any other team.”

    Rogers, MN – Buyer

    “Jake was amazing! Even when I was giving up hope and discouraged he was upbeat! Accommodated my schedule and answered all my questions about the home buying experience quickly and clearly. The whole process was smooth. I had no surprises at closing and would highly recommend Jake and his team to anyone. He went above and beyond. Exemplary service.”

    “Tim, Jacob and Suzy were absolutely tremendous to work with from the first introductory day to the final day that we closed on our home. Being first-time home buyers we had a lot of questions that were answered honestly and in our best interests while browsing prospective home in the area. They worked within our search criteria to find us a beautiful home that we love, and communicated clearly and responded quickly, whenever necessary, whether it be through email, call or text. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking, as we had a fantastic time working with the team, and know they can help many more of our family/friends, as well as anyone else we would not already know!”

    “We had nothing but good luck working with Jake when trying to sell a house in Dayton, MN. Even when we had issues with the title, Jake helped us navigate through things we didn’t expect. He helped us with the paperwork and allowed us to travel out of state even during the closing. We received a price that was more than fair for the property. I would recommend the Jacob Olson Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. We learned about Jake from our daughter who worked with Jake to buy two different homes with complete satisfaction.”

    Dayton, MN – Seller

    “Anyone looking for a new home you can stop searching. Jacob Olson is your guy. I can tell you I’m not the easiest person to deal with. I’m not one to fill out surveys either. Jake deserves a review. He is the most responsive, friendly and honest real estate professional I’ve met. I’ve search and spoke to many. I can’t tell you how many phone calls, emails or text messages I’ve sent to him. He responded/answered quicker than expected every time. His knowledge is second to none. My wife and I were in a time crunch to purchase our new home. Even in this seller’s market we were able to find a property on time and he was the reason for it. His negotiation skills are what made it happen. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home. Jake is personable and you feel like your speaking to an old friend at the end of the conversation. When we look for our next property he will be the real estate professional we call.”

    Zimmerman, MN – Buyer

    “We stumbled on Jake by accident. I was asking a general question on a home and he called within minutes. We found a new home with him and we had some issues but he helped us through it tremendously. Every time our phone would ring and saw it was Jake it made you smile! Not only did we get an awesome Realtor, we also have a new friend. You will never be sorry by using Jake!”

    Minneapolis, MN – Buyer

    “A business acquaintance referred Jake to us. Jake had helped him sell his mother’s house. Jake supplied us with the information we needed to determine how much to ask for our house. His sale methodologies made for a speedy sale with a higher sale price than the asking price. We had hail damage that had to be fixed before the closing and he helped coordinate with our contractor to get the job done on time. We had conflicts with the closing date/time and he set it up so we could pre-sign the paperwork so we did not have to attend the closing. Jake did an excellent job for us.”

    Minneapolis, MN – Seller

    “We’ve now worked with Jacob on the purchase of our first home (2015) and the sale of it (2017). Although both processes are inevitable stressful, Jacob helped us through it and put us at ease. He worked collaboratively with us, to ensure everything went smoothly. We look forward to buying our next home with Jacob very soon!” 

    Saint Paul, MN – Seller and Buyer

    “Jake played a vital role in my home buying process as a first timer. The entire process was seamless, including: setting up showings, constant communication and paperwork. All paperwork, which is foreign to everyone, was explained clearly and in detail. There were no surprises at all! Jake is great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home.”

    Saint Paul, MN – First Time Buyer

    “Jake was very responsive to all requests and inquiries. He updated us often with new listings that fit our criteria and was very accommodating to our schedule with setting up appointments.” 

    Hugo, MN – Buyer

    “Jacob was so helpful in finding us our new home. This was our first time dealing with real estate and he was so wonderful in explaining the process and helped make it more understandable. He was very prompt when answering questions. My husband was gone for a month after our offer was accepted and he helped guide me through the whole process. If ever we decide to sell and buy another home, we will be asking Jacob for his guidance and expertise.” 

    Woodbury, MN – Seller and Buyer

    “Jake Olson is extremely professional and genuinely wanted to find us our dream home. We looked at 25 houses until we found the one we wanted. All houses matched our criteria, but there was always something that my wife or myself didn’t like. Jake valiantly kept searching for more homes long after most agents would have given up. We are extremely excited about our new home, and I will recommend Jake Olson to everyone looking for a new home.”

    Woodbury, MN – Buyer

    “My husband and I found Jake to be an excellent help in locating some properties to use as investment purposes. He was very knowledgeable in the areas we were looking in and seems to understand the current market trends quite well. We are very satisfied in working with Jake these past years and will continue to do so in the future. He is honest in his dealings with people which we found to be quite refreshing in this era of poor and unprompt customer service. We would highly recommend him as your Realtor.”

    Maple Grove, MN – Investment Buyer

    “Jacob is laid back, super responsive and very honest. It was like working with an old friend, really comfortable and easy process. He helped us find our house in February and we closed in March with no problems.”

    Saint Paul, MN- Buyer

    “Jake was a Realtor who treated me like family and knew how important this decision was to my daughter and me. He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time needed to make this big purchase easy and fun.”

    Chanhassen, MN- Buyer

    “To put it simply, Jake found us our new home. After talking with him and letting him know our wish list and price range, he came up with a perfect house for us in record time. Jake is committed to his clients and will make the home buying process easy and as stress free as possible. I highly recommend his services.”
