Testimonials

My (now) wife and I began the search for our first home a few weeks before our wedding – a very busy time to say the least. While the combination of these two major life milestones could have been a stressful, working with Jim was the exact opposite. Jim went the extra mile to ensure we were completely informed on every step of the process, he met with us at all different hours no matter what day of the week, and lined up about 20 showings as we looked for the perfect home all over the western metro. After closing over three years ago Jim even still stays in touch following up on the house and giving us market information on comps. Jim’s masterful blend of professionalism and personality (the guy is hilarious!) will make him our go-to for all of our home buying and selling needs.

When helping you to find a home, Jim is responsive to your needs, attentive to the details of the structure, and aware of current market trends. If you are looking to sell, Jim offers exceptional advice on making your house shine and has a fun, creative approach to highlighting all of the things that the buyer will love about the house.

Last summer my husband and I decided to locate to the Minneapolis area after I received some rather disheartening health-related news. Two of our children lived near Mpls. so that seemed logical. Our home in SD sold quickly so we needed to act quickly. Our youngest son had gone to college with Jim Snaza at USD and contacted him for us. Within 48 hours we traveled from SD, met Jim, and viewed 9 properties, finding the perfect one to fit our needs. He kept in mind all of the criteria that we had given him and negotiated the selling price, the home inspection, and the closing with great precision, enlisting our daughter’s help, with her technological knowledge, to fax and email information to us back in SD. It was quite an emotional time for me, I’d had cancer surgery 5 days prior to starting the house hunt journey, but Jim was reassuring and compassionate and always patient and understanding. In one word…Awesome!

Simply put, Jim was absolutely fantastic to work with. His advice, knowledge, availability, composure, and disposition were priceless throughout the process, to the point that I now can’t quite imagine getting through it all otherwise. I truly feel like he put my best interests forward from the moment we first chatted, through closing to the present, and into the future. No question or concern has been too small or let go of – and there have been many.

Thank you much, Jim!

By far and away the best agent I have worked with. I am a seller/and buyer who tends to have a lot of questions and like to know the details. He recognized that and kept me in the loop with all details and made sure I understood everything. He worked with me over 6 months prior to make sure I had my house in a great condition to sell, and get the most bang for my buck. Not to mention he sold my house in one day for over asking price, with an amazingly quick and seamless close. He also doesn’t ever tell someone just what they want to hear and makes sure I was always on a realistic page. Now he is patiently helping me find my new home in this crazy market! Highly recommend.

All I can say is you definitely want to work with Jim. Especially if you are a first time home buyer like my husband and I were. He was ALWAYS quick to answer my phone calls, emails and my constant questions. We were moving from out of state and he made sure to make his schedule fit with ours. I cannot thank him enough for being straight forward, honest, and extremely knowledgeable about the process. If you are reading this and not sure about what realtor to trust, trust Jim.

Moving is stressful and is never an easy process but our process was made so much easier thanks to our realtor, my friend, Jim Snaza. Throughout the process he always had our best interest in mind and gave us great advice, made himself available at literally all hours of the night for our questions and concerns, and was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of house hunting, negotiating, and closing.

Talk to me! Also, Jim, thank you!! I know we’ve told you many times but we couldn’t have done this without you! You literally got us into our dream home and we couldn’t be… Show More

Jim is the most incredible realtor. My fiance’ and I were extremely picky first-time home buyers and Jim was patient, knowledgeable, and a gigantic resource the entire process. He thoroughly explained the process, paperwork, and specifics throughout our experience and was always available to communicate with via text or phone call when we needed him. Jim has mind-blowing knowledge of all the neighborhoods in the metro area and helped us find the perfect home in the perfect location. He recommended incredible inspectors during our inspection phase and relentlessly negotiated the best offer for us with the seller. If you want the best realtor in the Twin Cities then you want Jim Snaza for sure!

Jim was great. He was very willing to he see any property with me, and there were a lot of them. Why I liked best is he was always able to point out a negative and positive or two of each property that was something I feel I would have missed. Jim was definetly not shy about critically viewing properties and never pressured me into anything. He also allowed me to be the lead on my own search and didn’t contact me more often than I liked, my experience with other realities is that they contact you non-stop. Jim was also available anytime I needed him though and got back to me very quickly.

Jim put in so much work to help us finally find a house. We put in 12 different offers on 12 different houses before our offer was finally accepted. When we were ready to give up looking, Jim encouraged us to keep looking and assured us that we would find the perfect place. Thank you for all of your hard work Jim and for not giving up on us!!

Lisa provides excellent services with professional, personalized support. Her ability to identify properties that would meet our family’s needs and meet our budgetary expectations was exceptional. Further, since the sale she has helped evaluate improvement options to maximize our satisfaction and optimize our investment. Thanks for working together with us.

She is awesome, she gave us the best advice and helped sell our house quick. We now are in our dream home.

Lisa was amazing to work with. She was available around the clock and always worked around my schedule. Since I was a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and Lisa was great at explaining the entire process with me and never made me feel like I was rushing into any decisions.

Lisa is the best! She is very knowledgeable about the process, kind, attentive and actively engaged in giving you the best experience working with a realtor.

As first-time buyers, Lisa couldn’t have been more helpful! We ended up getting a home we love in a very competitive market and will definitely work with her in the future!

Lisa informed me during each step in selling my house. She was spot on with what to expect from listing my house to the closing. She stuck with me through a difficult closing and got me what I needed.
