The purpose of my business is referral... which means I must bring the type of value that makes you feel comfortable introducing me to the people you know who need my help. And not because you feel obligated but because you truly want them to get the best advice.
What others have said:
Kalani and Judy Kruse:
Connie Schiffert, what can we say. She came in helped merge our ideas and showed us what was needed to sell our place. Sure enough after the enhancements, it was like people kept coming back with offers because they wanted to buy. We are sure we got top dollar in a time of 'hard-to-sell' attitudes. All thanks to Connie's insights and help.
Tim and Katie Thormodsgard:
Connie Schiffert helped us find our home about two and a half years ago. She worked patiently and tirelessly to find what we were looking for. She was attentive and communicative through the entire home buying process, which was a refreshing change from our previous home buying/selling experience. When friends moved into town from out of state earlier this year, I immediately recommended Connie with the utmost confidence, and would do so again.
Connie - caring, patient, knowledgeable, professional yet personable. The tips she gave me in preparing my home for sale resulted in comments like "cleanest home I've ever looked at." Connie almost single handedly staged my home for viewing. She also helped me to search for and purchase my awesome townhome, with a lot of patience, taking me at my request from one end of the Minneapolis suburbs out to the countryside, and subsequently explaining very clearly all of the financial issues attached to buying a home. Thanks, Connie!
Kari and Brian Whitson:
We went to Connie to help us find the "right" home to buy, not just because she is a Realtor, but also because she is a friend and we knew we could put total trust in her. She embraced us as clients in a totally professional manner, knowing what questions to ask to find out what our desires and goals were in finding a home, which she continued to remind us of time to time if we got off-track! She was relentless in searching with us, not being daunted by our being outbid on 4 houses before we found our perfect home. I know that she treated us no differently as friends than any of her other clients; her professionalism and total commitment is part of her character as a person as well as a Realtor. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy.
Lee and Mona Spencer:
Thank you! We appreciate all your professional expertise throughout the selling of our townhouse and purchasing our new home! Mona and I are really excited about our new home!
Tom Loretto and Najwa Bukhari:
We were quite fortunate to have Connie Schiffert represent us during our search for a new home. We found her to be quite patient and accommodating, to our changing needs. When we finally found a home that met our needs, Connie made sure to negotiate a reasonable offer price for us. I would recommend Connie to anyone.
When it came time for me to sell my home, a friend recommended Connie. This was my first experience selling a home and I was clueless as to what that all involved. Connie walked me through every step of the process, kept me informed on what needed to be done and what was happening. She answered my many questions and was always easy to contact. I would recommend Connie to anyone planning to sell or buy a home.
Nathaniel Swenson and Anne Hoang:
We chose you because a family member had you help them and they were very happy with the results. And we were very pleased with the experience – thank you for everything! And thank you for being so technologically savvy … we enjoyed the prompt texts, emails and phone calls.
You listened to our needs and were professional, quick and clean in selling my house. "What was most challenging?" None of it ... You did all the work!
Jim and Shari Hart:
We enjoyed working with Connie. She was available for any questions and helped make the process very smooth. I have bought six properties and her thoughtful help was unlike any other agent.
My fiancé and his parents both recommended you to help me sell my townhouse. It was an awesome experience. Yes, I would recommend you and I have already told friends how detailed and organized you are.
Connie was always there when I needed her... Always on time for appointments and prompt at returning calls. The most challenging was trying to find the right house. Connie always told me to weigh out the pros and cons. She wanted me to have the best - to get what I wanted in a house.
Connie helped me and my siblings navigate the hazardous waters of selling our deceased father's house. She was realistic, patient and calm - and maintained a positive attitude. She is an excellent communicator and the consummate professional. We couldn't have done it without her! Thank you so much for your hard work on our behalf and for your wisdom. Please be sure that I will recommend you in the future!
“I must say for me, I rarely give a recommendation. But, having worked in my business with realtors across the country for four years, I have seen everything go wrong. My experience with Connie so impressed me with her professionalism and her absolute sincere desire to get me through the process seamlessly merited my recommendation of her to my co-worker, Jennifer. I always keep my ear open for other friends who are looking for a great realtor and she is the only one I will mention.”
Lisa and Steve Kraft:
“Thanks again – soooo much – for all you did to help us sell our old house. As I drive around and back through the old neighborhood a couple of times and see those same houses still on the market…I’m reminded of how blessed we were to get ours sold as fast as we did! Thank you!!”
Jessica and Rob McCandless:
“You have made our home buying experience absolutely wonderful! You have a kind and serving heart and it shows through in your work, your calls, your letters! We know where that comes from too! Bless you for you hard work, your thoughtfulness and your wonderful smile! You can be assured that we will refer you to our friends and family and will be the one we go to in the future.”
“Ellen and I were very impressed by your friendly/informative style, many helpful suggestions and your multi-faceted marketing strategy.”
Nekima and Phalen Pounds:
“Thanks again for all you have done for us. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had you working with us to reach our goal of home ownership. It was a tough road, but you traveled it alongside us with grace, thoughtfulness, kindness, and unyielding support. We will definitely refer you to everyone we can.”
Tawny and Tom Buettner:
“Tom and I will never be able to describe our appreciation for your caring, giving heart and determination. We thank God for placing you in our lives. This wonderful home would not be ours if not for your help! Thank you.”
Inga and Joel Roberts:
“We want to thank you for all of the help and support that you have given us. Thank you for believing in our dreams and helping us to attain them. We want you to know how much we appreciate all the work and time you put into helping us find the perfect place. … We could not have done it without you! I want you to know how much we appreciate you! Thank you!”
