Twin Cities Minnesota & Woodbury Realtor Testimonials

Take a minute to see what some of our past clients had to say about their experience with Matt Johnson & The Johnson Real Estate Group. A testament to why over 70% of our growing business comes by way of repeat and referral!

IMG_1746Matt & Jen were fantastic to work with.  They were able to find us our first home that we absolutely love.  They were always kind, professional and fun throughout the entire process. ~ Matt & Lauren

 

The Johnson Real Estate Group has been wonderful.  They were and continue to be great advocates for us.  We had a tough situation with our closing (due to seller issues) and Matt & Jen were very supportive and helpful.  They worked hard to make sure every document was correct and that every agreement was upheld. I HIGHLY recommend them! ~Matt & Krista

Matt & Jen did a great job!  We had a very odd circumstance come up and they handled it very well and kept my stress level down.  They not only had to sell my house once, but did it twice, both times in under a week on the market!   I would highly recommend them!  BethAnn & Shaun

If I could only use one word, it would be awesome!  They are a great, hard working and trustworthy group.  They were always available for questions and patient with first time home buyers.  I will definitely refer clients to the Johnson Real Estate Group! ~ Nathan & Leanne

I’m satisfied.  But it has less to do with KW and more to do with Matt Johnson & Jen Johnson; so way to steal their thunder, KW! (Regarding KW Realty ranking #1 in JD Powers Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Survey) ~John

Matt & Jen made us feel calm and confident from the start.  They are super professional and know their business really well.  We knew we were in good hands! ~ Jaime & Megan

Matt was great.  He made us feel very comfortable. Matt was supportive, but not pushy, he waited for us to make our decisions.  He found us the perfect house.  Thank you!!! ~ Molly & Nathan

This is the second time we have used Matt & Jennifer for a real estate transaction. They are absolutely the best to work with.  They remain professional at all times – yet are very comfortable to be around.  They were very thorough and never missed a detail.  We will definitely use them again.  ~Mary & Dale

I liked how our realtor, Matt Johnson called and kept us informed.  He educated us about the other homes on the market and kept us informed about the interest in our home. ~ Wayne & Cindy

Another company could not get this Woodbury home sold, we did!

Overall we had an excellent, stress free sale experience, thanks to Matt & Jen Johnson.  They are good, honest, trustworthy people.  We would definitely recommend their service to anyone who is buying or selling!! ~Gary & Lois

We found our 30yr palace in the country. The realtor that made it happen was Matt Johnson. He came to us with a proposal to sell our house and buy the next one. I grilled Matt on the facts and statistics to no end. I can say without reservation that he came through in flying colors. I only trust facts, numbers, and thorough analysis. I have no reservations saying that Matt is the consummate, studied, and professional realtor. He showed up with very specific and detailed spread sheets, all relevant and directed. Matt had very specific and accurate recommendations.

If you want someone who is disciplined, professional and a real estate expert, then I recommend Matt. ~ Shawn

The Johnson Team was wonderful to work with.  They worked together to educate us on the housing market in order to prepare us to buy & sell our homes.  Their honesty, knowledge and personal communication are what have caused us to recommend them to other friends and family.  ~ Alan

Matt and Jen did a very professional job for me.  Thanks again ~ John

Thanks again for all your honest and professional effort.  Your tenure indeed shows. ~Agent, Henry

We had a great experience working with both Matt and Jen and look forward to working with them in the future.  They were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire buying process ~ Erik & Christina

You and Matt have been GREAT. I don’t think that Al and I have ever worked with individuals that have such great communication. Thanks for everything you do…you can bet that we will be passing your name to anyone we know! 🙂 ~Kaarin

We moved from Nebraska to Minnesota and were referred to the Johnson Real Estate Team by our son and daughter-in-law.  Matt Johnson and his team worked tirelessly to help us find the house that would fit our needs.  Matt went above and beyond by calling homeowners whose houses weren’t yet listed on the market to try and create a buying opportunity for us.  Matt listened to our requirements for a new home and then helped to educate us on the types of homes available, exposed us to different locations and eventually helped us locate the home we purchased.  The closing process was painless as Matt and his team were thorough and well organized.  There are many real estate professionals in the marketplace, but none as knowledgeable or as hard working as Matt.  Great job Matt and team! ~ Vicki

I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Matt.  He went the extra mile to ensure that we got the house we wanted and to ensure that we didn’t pay too much even though my inclination was to offer more.  He was spot on with his analysis and made the deal happen.  His dogged determination and that of his team compelled the failures of third parties to step up to the plate and move more quickly to do what they should have done weeks before.  If I were buying or selling in the Twin Cities area again, I’d use Matt.  Any chance you are licensed in New Mexico where we have a home to sell?  Thanks again Matt. ~Frank (law student)

Alfieri Walk ThroughWe went through many houses, 5 offers, had to back out of an offer due to job loss and Matt & Jen stuck with us to the end!  They found us the perfect fit and I would recommend The Johnson Real Estate Group to anyone! ~Kendra

 Excellent customer service, integrity, knowledge and experience. ~Dan

Matt & Jen were great.  I had been looking for almost 10 months and they never gave up or complained.  I will use them again whenever I buy or sell a home ~ Zach

~Erin

IMG_0682Excellent customer service, integrity, knowledge, experience, communication, value for fee charged, meeting expectations, quality of recommendations, overall satisfaction!  (All 10’s) ~Robynn & Sean

Excellent customer service, integrity, knowledge, experience, communication, value for fee charged, meeting expectations, quality of recommendations, overall satisfaction!  (All 10’s)  They are the best!  We found our dream home thanks to Matt & Jen!  From the first email we sent The Johnson Real Estate Group to the closing day, the service was top notch.  We heard about Matt & Jen from a friend and we look forward to recommending them to others.  Thanks ~John & Rachel

Excellent customer service, integrity, knowledge, experience, communication, value, meeting expectations, quality of recommendations & overall satisfaction!  (All 10’s)  Matt & Jen were always quick to respond to any questions I had about the home buying process.  Matt was very knowledgeable about the areas & developers.  They even took time over the Easter weekend to get my offer in and accepted.  They made the process seem easy.  ~Kate

I have to say it hurt to listen to you on the price for selling my home, but I’m glad I did, so glad I did.  You told me what I needed to hear instead of what I wanted to hear and I’m so glad you were looking out for my best interest.  If I hadn’t I’m afraid to think of where I’d be now. ~Bill

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Matt and Jen, their knowledge and understanding was above and beyond what I had ever expected! ~Lindsey

I will keep recommending you whenever the opportunity presents itself!!  You two are the best!  ~Jennifer

We were very impressed with Matt and Jen’s approach to our short sale situation.  They walked us through the process and patiently helped us understand the real world realities and complications of short sales.  Jennifer even helped us get an unfair government appraisal reversed and corrected which was not easy.  After each twist and turn we knew that our interests were being looked out for and are so grateful that we were able to successfully close our short sale and move onto the next chapter of our lives.  We highly recommend working with the Johnson’s in either buying or selling a home.  Thanks for your hard work and for working for our best interests every step of the way! ~Names withheld for privacy

Matt, Thank you for all your hard work involved in the purchase of 9th Ave in North Branch.  I appreciate the way you addressed questions and concerns in a professional and courteous manner.  It was a pleasure doing business with you and Jennifer.  I look forward to working with you again soon.  ~Janet~M&I Bank

I could suggest my Realtor who keeps me up to date on homes for sale in the area and just a real hard worker.  He and his wife sold my home in Cottage Grove and helped me to find my current home (perfect and exactly what I needed).  I would be happy to give you information or contact him and let him help you.  I liked him because he was the only honest realtor I worked with (my 3rd one!).  I will pass your name and number along to my realtor, Matthew Johnson and have him contact you and get the ball rolling.   His wife, Jennifer, also works with him as a realtor and both are terrific and honest!!  They work with Keller Williams out here in Woodbury.  ~Jennifer

We were very happy to have The Johnson Real Estate Group working with us through the negotiations on our sale and our purchase.   Matt’s commitment and dedication to finding us the perfect home was very successful.  We would recommend Matt & Jennifer to anyone. ~Chris & Niomi

There would be a lot less issues at the closing table if all realtors worked as diligently as you both do. ~John Zydowsky ~ Tradition Mortgage ~Vice President

Matt and Jen provided us with the expertise to price our house appropriately, stage it effectively, and market it efficiently to help us realize our house sale goal. They were able to get us multiple offers and sell our house for above the price the market was bearing for similar houses. We confidently recommend Matt and Jen to meet your real estate goals as well! ~Jon

Everything with our first home purchase went as well as it possibly could.  We were very happy with Matt and would not hesitate to refer The Johnson Real Estate Group. ~ Jesse & Kimmie

Matt did a great job in selling our house and getting a fair price.  ~Chris

Ahh the joy of short sales……So now I’m beginning the long road to recovery. But at least it’s all moving forward now. I still hear so many stories of people stuck in their homes and I feel so bad. Thanks for your help!  ~Name withheld for privacy

I just wanted to say thanks for all of your hard work (on our short sale).  We really appreciate it. ~Name withheld for privacy

I was totally pleased with you work on the sale of my house in Woodbury (which I miss dearly even to this very day!) Believe me, if I ever get back to the area, you would be the first people I would call!  Many thanks again. ~John

Wow, 1 year since we did the short sale already!  Amazing….the time goes by so fast.   We just signed another 1 year lease….  From everything we’ve been told, you have to wait two years before buying anyone will consider giving you another mortgage after a short sale.  So far, the short sale has not significantly affected our credit, which is good, and we didn’t get hit as hard on taxes as we thought we would.  We’re just paying things off and saving a down payment for the next place.  Eventually we want to buy a smaller townhouse in ….  Thanks! ~Name withheld for privacy

Matthew and Jennifer were consummate professionals during my home purchase.  They are a full service team and offered their full attention to my specific needs!  ~Molly

Excellent…thank you guys.  You’re doing a wonderful job! ~Kelly (Former Real Estate Agent)

I have used Matt Johnson and his professional group at Keller Williams more than once with excellent results and highly recommend their services to anyone needing professional real estate sales or acquisitions.
I feel Matt is an expert, provides great results and has high integrity.  ~Hans (Commercial Real Estate Agent)

You dominate all other realtors! ~Lisa

My brother and I would like to thank you and Matt for your professionalism and guiding us through this first home-buying experience. We appreciate all your help. ~James & Stephen

Just wanted to say thanks again and it’s been really great working with you–making it much more fun than it probably ought to be 🙂 ~Nicole

I raved about you guys and gave out your card to my doctor’s nurse!!  I will continue to hand them out so you might want to mail me a few.  Better yet if you are out and about stop by. I would love to see you!  Again, thanks!  ~Jennifer

I still can’t thank you enough for helping me out (with my short sale).  It has literally changed my life. ~Sarah

Matt is a wonderful agent, one that is on-time, available, and always ready to go the extra mile. I feel lucky to know such a good person, and feel that having an agent such as him makes the real estate process not only easier but also more successful. Matt is someone to trust. ~Patrick

Matthew and Jennifer provided my family with good information and came prepared to discuss all the aspects that were involved in selling our house. Their marketing strategy garnered several offers and we were able to sell our house quickly and within 97% of the price Matthew suggested we list at. I would recommend their services if you are in the market to sell your home.”  Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert ~Vicki

Matt and Jennifer Johnson provided confidence and education when I needed it most. When I bought my home they walked me through the process with no pressure and ample opportunities to ask questions. As Minneapolis/St. Paul Top Agents, they have built their own success by working hard and doing the right thing. These are the reasons why I refer all of my best clients to Matt and Jennifer. Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity. ~Chris

It was great to work with Matt and Jen, not only were they very personable, but they paid close attention to my needs as a seller.  They gave expert advice for the staging of my home, which I know is one of the reasons it sold in this market.  Matt gave me honest advice when I needed it.  He called me weekly with current market information, so we could make the best decision on the position of my home.  Jennifer was very efficient in making sure all the behind the scenes work was completed.  The marketing brochure for my home was excellent, so much better than any others that I have seen.  They kept me apprised on all the details of the sale, and never left me wondering what was happening.  Matt and Jen are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly realtors who keep their customer’s best interests in mind at all times.  We are looking forward to working with them as buyers, knowing how great of an experience our sale was. ~ Lesley

The Johnsons were a joy to work with.  I was confident they had my best interests in mind. The process was more enjoyable and smoother than I expected.  They really went beyond my expectations and felt more like friends than Realtors. ~Rebecca

We trusted your judgment 100% and knew we are in good hands.  ~ Michael & Rachel

I know now that you are the reason my home sold.  I am so grateful for how hard you worked to make this happen for us.  Thank you so much.  ~Cheya

Matt and Jen were very forward thinking and in tune with present market.  They cared about what I needed and gave me the hard to hear truth about what I needed to do to get my home sold.  Thank you.  ~Carol

Matt and Jen are awesome!  They completed the impossible in selling my home in this market. : )  ~Richele

We have been doing home inspections for The Johnson Real Estate Group for years.  It is always a pleasure working with Matthew & Jennifer.  Their experience is evident throughout the entire transaction and their quality of service is second to none.  If there are issues that come up in a home inspection, they are always handled with the utmost professionalism.  Thank you Johnsons!  ~Brian & Suzanne Block (Block By Block Home Inspections, Inc.)

The service was great and the energy was unbeatable.  You guys are a great compliment to each other and are great Realtors-the total package.  Thank you. ~Paul

I would recommend Matt and Jen in a second.  They are really good at what they do!  ~Jeremy & Jennifer

I can’t imagine the level of service I received from you is the industry norm.  You were always there and knew just how to calm me down when I was frantic.  You got me the home of my dreams and sold my home so quickly.  I could kiss you!  ~Cheryl

Jennifer, you are my angel.  I know that if I had not met you, my home would have been foreclosed on.  I am so thankful for you and only wish I would have met you sooner.  Thank you.  ~Mariano

You did an amazing job negotiating for us.  We are so glad we had you on our side.  ~VJ & Harish

The Johnson real estate did both a great job of selling our house in a timely fashion and helping us get the house of our dreams in a neighborhood and city we desired.  It’s a long story of how they got us our house, but they were creative enough to think of bringing a picture of our family to the offer table. It was that strategic move of showing them our adorable daughter that helped the current owners turn down another better offer to sell to us! We love our house and neighborhood. You have made us extremely happy.  The Johnson Real Estate Group did a great job!
~ Todd

We are so grateful for your help in selling our home.  We appreciate your hard work and determination and we are truly amazed with the timing and details that went into our purchase, especially in multiple offers!  We are overwhelmed with joy and are so grateful for your both  ~Kristen

Thank you, we know this was an interesting transaction and we had a lot of questions.  You answered them all and made it easy.  Thanks ~Denise & Al

I was impressed with how much contact we had with Matt and Jen and how easy it was to get a hold of them.  They were prepared and great at explaining the purchase agreement.  They could have done it in their sleep I think.  ~Erica & Lars

Jennifer is like a pit bull when it comes to looking out for our best interests.  She wasn’t going to let those sellers get away with anything, even though they tried!  You guys truly care about what is in our best interest and we are so thankful.  ~Cory

We had a great experience with and would refer Matt and Jen in a heartbeat.  We felt confident in the service they provided.  ~Carrie

I know that no one else on earth would have put in the time and energy you did to keep our home out of foreclosure.  You are my angels.  I love you guys.  ~Gerri

Great!  Matt and Jen were positive and very efficient when shopping for my new home.  They are very persistent and willing to work around busy schedules.  ~Chris

Matt and Jen were very friendly and knowledgeable during our building experience.  Always thinking about stuff we would never know to ask or look for. Jennifer looks for the practical things and Matt looks for the fun things.  You complement each other so well.  It was an excellent experience.  ~Angie

Matt and Jennifer did a wonderful job marketing our house.  They excelled in communication & defining/clarifying real estate language.  Great to work with!  They are exceptionally great at knowing how to set up a “model” house & advertising our home for sale.  Jen was on top of every last detail.  ~Jen & Bjorn

Matt & Jennifer guided us through what can be an extremely confusing process and found us exactly what we needed.  The service was exceptional.  They really listened to us.  ~Katie & Kevin

Matt and Jen were very understanding of my needs and “cold feet” as a 1st time home buyer. They were also able to answer my questions about purchasing and owning a home. ~Eric

Jen and Matt made buying our house go very smooth.  We would gladly work with them again.  They were always available, very knowledgeable and very flexible.  We got exceptional service.  Excellent experience!  ~Nadine & Ryan

I thought Matt and Jen did a great job.  They got what I wanted and they always stayed on top of things with the builder.  Always kept us on track and kept great contact with us throughout the build.  I have told people thinking about buying or selling that they need to go through Matt and Jen.  Thank you again on a wonderful job.  Keep up the good work.  ~Dan

Matt and Jen were patient, knowledgeable and available every step during the purchase of my home.  They put me in touch with an honest mortgage banker who arranged financing with a great rate.  They were very responsive to all my questions, contacted the association to clarify policies that I had questions on and kept me up to date on all the procedures.  There is a lot to buying a home!  Closing was completed on time with no surprises or last minute glitches.  The Johnson Real Estate Group rocks!  ~Beth

You have made me extremely happy.  The Johnson Real Estate Group did a great job!  ~Todd

We would like to thank you for helping us find a house that suits our needs.  We think you did a terrific job at everything.  We’ll call you if we ever need anything in real estate.  Thanks again.  ~Crystal & Tim

As a part-time real estate investor, who has also purchased multiple personal residences, I have had a lot of exposure to a wide variety of real estate agents. Additionally, as a real estate attorney I have had additional dealings with countless more. In all of my experiences, I have not witnessed anything even close to the professionalism, intelligence, and most importantly, effectiveness that I have experienced in dealing with Matthew and Jennifer. I have worked with them in the sale of my home, the long and frustrating process of building a new one, and the continued search for investment properties and opportunities. Matt and Jen work tirelessly to achieve results in the best interests of their clients. They are constantly available for questions and ideas, and very approachable for the open and honest kinds of discussions necessary in the purchase and sale of a personal residence. I sing their praises to all who will listen, and constantly offer them to anyone in need of a real estate professional. In a profession filled with mediocrity (and sometimes much worse), they are literally the cream of the crop.   ~Mark (Real Estate Attorney)

I just wanted to let you know that we are really enjoying the new house, and I want to thank you for helping us get it.  We are having fun painting and decorating.  We are so happy with the decision we made to buy a house actually found out that the condo we were going to pay $254K for is still for sale and is now priced at $195K and it is not finished yet, I am so thankful we didn’t make that mistake.  Anyway, sorry for the delay but we are very happy and are very appreciative of your help and will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.  Thanks Again, ~Becky

Matt and Jen were awesome to work with!  From start to finish they did an excellent job.  Their market knowledge was second to none and their advice on staging was exactly what we needed to hear.  I was pleasantly surprised when Matt and Jen were able to get 30 Realtors to their Realtor Open and have each of them fill out feedback questionnaires.  ~Lexie & Kevin

Matt and Jen were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.  We told them exactly what we were looking for as to house size, location and price.  They were able to pin point our needs and facilitate what we think is a great purchase.  Because we live outside the area we thought it might be tough, but they made it so easy.  Thanks you!~John & Jackie (Custom Builder)

We needed to sell our home within a short amount of time.  With your expertise and help, we did just that.  We are thankful for your hard work and for keeping our best interests in mind throughout the entire selling process. ~Tony & Cathi (Former Real Estate Agent)

Our experience with Matt and Jen was GREAT!! – They sold our place in days!  VERY good with updates and keepingus informed.  They were able to answer ALL our questions and were very professional yet friendly. ~Dr. Tara Krosch
