Mark Pietig
Re/Max Lakes Area Realty
About Mark

I am an experienced Real Estate Professional, Outdoorsman, and Life Enthusiast. Born and raised in the small town of Olivia MN, I learned what real service and hard work is all about. I bring these same values with me to the workplace. I currently own Pietig Properties and I am a Realtor for Re/Max - Lakes Area Realty out of Nisswa, MN. My drive, commitment to service, and dedication to customer experience have built my business to what it is today. I have a strong knowledge in all aspects of the real estate transaction, and know how to guide my clients to a smooth and enjoyable closing. I am not a Realtor that will get the deal done and disappear. My goal is to create a lasting relationship with each of my clients and ensure them that I will be there before, during and after the transaction is complete. I would enjoy an opportunity to work with you! Mark Pietig

John Sorenson
eXp Realty
About John

I am a native of the beautiful state of Minnesota. I was born and raised in Apple Valley with over 25+ years of sales experience. The past 5+ years I have been a full-time licensed agent matching home buyers with their dream homes, and sellers with their next step. Enthusiastic and grateful to the Twin Cities home sellers & buyers I serve, I actively network with leaders in the industry so I can personally provide clients with resources and fresh local neighborhood information including market trends. My resources improve my client’s experience. I entered the industry because of the unlimited potential to better serve my community, meet different people, and make a living. I knew if I applied a strong work ethic based on deep preparation and determination my confidence and knowledge would grow making it possible for me to make a real difference in someone’s life - I don’t know how to describe the feeling I get when I say the words “congratulations, the home is yours”. I am honored to be invited into so many diverse lives and homes. It has been a pleasure to help so many facilitate their dreams - there is nothing like seeing the positive change a new home and move can bring to someone. I love to be a part of what for some is one of the most important experiences in their life. Because I take feedback seriously, I continue to hone my abilities and change. It is always easier when you encounter others who have common goals to help the client and the industry. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, so I have dedicated myself to the Clients First Philosophy. One of my expertise being the local market means I can introduce my clients to homes that meet their criteria and notify them immediately of new listings that meet their needs and goals, but most importantly it means I am with them every step of the way. I will do everything I can to turn a negative situation around and provide alternatives for those that have been disregarded. I find it rewarding to find exceptions when people have been turned away. When it comes to new clients, I establish initial contact and discuss their real estate needs and provide market conditions. I put together property itineraries for my clients which can include numerous showings in a short period of time. Scheduling these tours requires a delicate balance that takes into consideration geography and logistics against a unknown time constraints that sellers may impose even after you schedule - I do my best to find a way to make it happen for my client’s schedule. Negotiating offers may not happen quickly, in fact some go on for days, but once an offer gets accepted and the property goes under contract and I manage the sale. This is where oversight is of extreme importance. I do my absolute best to make sure everyone involved in the process is doing their job. It is particularly important that both sides of the transaction, those on the buyer side and those on the seller side are fulfilling their obligations in a timely manner. When a lender is involved active communication is a must to ensure the loan is on track. I also check in on the title company to make sure the file is being handled and all details are attended to, this way I can try to address anything that comes up unexpectedly. After years in the business I was asked to train other real estate agents. Educating new and experienced agents has increased my knowledge of pain points and potential deal breakers. Keeping a positive mental attitude while problem solving and during the occasional crisis, is essential in managing the process. If you are looking for a real estate agent that puts you first, knows the local market, has a system and relationships in place that can handle the real estate process and transaction? I may not be the wealthiest or the most glamorous, but I promise you I will put you first.
