You Need Experience You Can Count On & People You Can Trust in Real Estate!

This is NOT the typical Real Estate Operation.
Looking for a Realtor in Zimmerman MN.?
Looking for a Realtor in Sherburne County?
Need any help with Real Estate?  This is a great place to start.

You are already ahead of the game by stopping by.

As a former arbitration judge for the Minnesota Association of Realtors Ethics and Arbitration panel, I have heard a myriad of stories related to "BAD" or ineffective Realtors®.  It is imperative you choose your Realtor® as carefully as you would your next home. 

From my first real estate transactions in my early twenties to today, you learn from experience every single day.  Profit from my experience!


Four questions to ask:
1.  Are you full time or do you just dabble in Real Estate?

One cannot stress enough the importance of choosing your professionals carefully.  Just as you wouldn't seek guidance from an inexperienced/part-time attorney or doctor, you need and experienced professional in your corner  to assist, guide and protect you.

2. References

Utilizing the internet and Google to research prospective Realtors® or talking with friends and family who have had a positive experience is a great place to start.  There are plenty of agents doing one or two transactions or less a year.  You cannot, by any measure, be good at anything unless it is highly repetitive.

When researching be cautious when you see words like: ethics, honesty and integrity describing an agent.  As a Real Estate BROKER and member of the Minnesota Association of Realtors, 

these words are the baseline of our code of ethics, they are the MINIMUM standard.

At Sabinske and Associates our clients understand the risk and complexity involved in any Real Estate transaction.  We council from the Chief Operating Officer for the Minnesota Association of Realtors, local and national news media, (WCCO, CBS)  to the first home buyer. 

3.  Communication
Does the Realtor answer the phone during normal business hours/return calls timely?

4.  Cost
What is the TOTAL cost not just a percentage or flat sale rate, ask for all costs, admin, broker etc. 

As a BROKER with hundreds of homes sold, our clients are in the best of hands.

Give us a call, you will be glad you did.

And by the way, we never charge any admin/ Broker fees to our clients which is NOT the norm in the industry! $$$


Don, it was a pleasure having lunch with you today.  Your knowledge of Real Estate and the steps required to do it well were impressive and reminded me of why I love to represent people like you.  Thanks for the time and knowledge sharing.
