What Does Your Realtor Owe You?


Your Realtor owes you: Ethical and Honest Representation. Seamless Communication. Dependability. Loyalty. Knowledge. Experience. Skill. These are the tenets of our business. No matter the hat we are wearing that day - Lake Minnetonka Realtor, Minneapolis Realtor, Saint Paul Realtor, or as a Realtor in the greater Twin Cities area - we strive daily to provide our clients with masterful real estate marketing, a tireless work ethic, and unparalleled customer service.

A Realtor Should Represent You Ethically and Honestly

The first step in a successful relationship is establishing trust and the relationship you establish with your Realtor shouldn't be any different. We pride ourselves on fiercely ethical, honest, and transparent representation. That means we do things differently than the norm. Every document and communication you receive from us includes full disclosure. This empowers you as our client and never leaves you guessing about our motivation. Your Realtor should put your needs first - we strive to meet this standard in everything we do.

Your Realtor Needs to Facilitate Seamless Communication

Another tenet of a successful relationship is communication. So, we ask you how you want to communicate, and tailor our customer service to match. Whether that's text, email, phone calls, video calls, or in person meetings, we strive to make you, our client, as comfortable as possible. This keeps you informed, engaged, and comfortable with the process.

Your Real Estate Agent Needs to Be Dependable

There will be times during any transaction when you will need your Realtor to be there for you. Our team structure allows us to be flexible with whatever challenges may come to pass. The bottom line is that whether it’s a showing of a new listing, a nerve-racking inspection, or a one shot got to have it appraisal, we will be there for you.

Your Realtor Needs to be Loyal to You and Your Needs

Whether you are purchasing a home, selling a home, or doing both, it needs to be about you. Your goals, your timeline, your comfort. Therefore, we don't give you pushy sales pitches or false deadlines when it comes time for you to make a decision. First, we lay out your options. Then, we give you the pros and cons. The last step is your choice, on your timeline. This keeps you in control of your transaction, making informed decisions with expert advice.

You Need a Knowledgeable, Experienced Real Estate Agent

Your Realtor needs knowledge of the area, the market, and the process. Need a Lake Minnetonka Realtor? We've been on the lake since 1986 - we know every bay and channel. Need a Minneapolis Realtor or a St. Paul Realtor? We know the best restaurants, most walkable neighborhoods, mot charming hidden parks, and quickest shortcuts. Beyond the superficial, we study the market academically, looking for trends within the greater Twin Cities real estate market. This attention to detail keeps our clients ahead of the pack.

You Need an Agent with Skills to Give You an Edge in a Fast Paced Market

We leverage the tried and true with the hip and new to give you an unmatched marketing and property procurement edge. With a firm grasp of valuable analytic data and social media marketing we know exactly how to target your most likely buyer. Then we use professional photography, videography, staging, and a myriad of other services to target these potential customers for you. This all adds up to a pinnacle price for the sale of your home.

Hear it from our clients

I could not have been more pleased with Jim and the outcome he helped us achieve!!!...I also felt like Jim was invested in selling my house and maximizing our profit from the sale. He really cared and you could tell, which is something you can’t buy or pay for. That is why Jim is now my realtor for life and someone I will eagerly recommend to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. He is OUTSTANDING!!!

 -Elliott S.

Jim is so amazing as a realtor. My husband was out of state so I had to go through the entire home buying process by myself. My husband said it was the “Jim and Julie Show”. He walked me through every step. I trusted him fully. He was knowledgeable and gave me so much help and advice all throughout. I will always be grateful to him for his patience, advice, and the handholding he provided me. You’ll be missing out on a fabulous opportunity if you don’t choose Jim! Thanks again Mr. Sawicki!

 -Julie Z.

Jim’s tireless work ethic and can do attitude were a must with our tricky home buying and selling process. We couldn’t have done it without him, and we’ll be using him again in the future.

 -Aaron and Amie

We bought our home from Jim and when the time came to sell Jim was our first call. He is fabulous to work with got us the price we were asking. If you're looking for a realtor that knows the market and puts you first, Jim is the guy to call.

 -Corisa P.

We bought our third property with James. I don’t call the listing agent I call James. He makes everything easy and he works for the interest of is clients. For the signing process he helps you all along. I believe you would just say he does his job but I’m pretty sure he does it better than  some others. I found my real estate agent (so do you if you just read that).
