Travis Erickson Real Estate Group Client Reviews
“I’ve bought 11 houses with 11 different Realtors, Travis Erickson is by far the best Realtor I’ve ever known. He should be a negotiating coach. He has the patience of a saint. Travis Erickson is a Real Estate Rock Star. A hero, and now a friend.” – Bob T.
This is a ridiculously long post that could just as easily be summed up in one sentence: You’d be crazy not to go with this guy.
Travis couldn’t have been a more patient, kind, knowledgeable agent. We saw whatever house we wanted to see, when we wanted to see it. And he returns your calls. Every last one. Which for us was a lot of calls.He was always thinking about what houses might work for us. I remember surfing online and finding what I thought might be the perfect house. As I clicked the “send” button to email Travis about it, at that very instant an email from him popped up in my inbox with the exact same house.
Travis comes from a family of remodelers. I think this might be what gives him such good insight as to what makes a property worth its value. He’s got a great eye for craftsmanship and on many occasions saved us from a potential money pit.
If you look at his site, you’ll see he sells a lot of homes and keeps very, very busy. But the most impressive part about Travis is he makes you feel like you’re his only client. He does things that go way beyond his job description. He found us a cheaper title company, helped us negotiate for new windows from the sellers. And then he called installers and researched the best windows for us to get! He even called our mortgage lender when we were having trouble getting information from them. He’s a tireless advocate for anything that involves you finding the perfect home.
We’re first-time home buyers and we honestly had no idea what to look for in an agent. We went to one of his open houses and just liked the way he let us walk around without badgering us. He wasn’t the slightest bit pushy. He told us at the very beginning that it didn’t matter to him how long it took us to find a house. In the end, it took about 6 months. We saw over 50 houses. And during all that time, I never got the feeling even for an instant that Travis was losing his patience. He genuinely cared about making sure we found a house we loved.
We’re moving in this Saturday, and we couldn’t be more excited. We expected to fall in love with whatever house we bought. What we didn’t expect was that we would fall in love with the agent. Kevin & Andrea Freidberg (Bought in St. Paul)
I was extremely happy with your work as my seller’s agent. I especially liked that you were thinking about and experimenting with new strategies and not just doing the same things every other agent was doing. The marketing of my house exceeded my expectations–having the input of a stager was so helpful, and the photography really was killer. I showed the pixs and video to so many people, and the universal response was “wow!”
The process of setting appointments, handled by Kendra, was flawless; she never missed a beat. (In contrast we have had my mother’s home up for sale and the entire appointment process was full of missteps. ugh!). Your execution of the process was timely, accurate and efficient. I also liked your use of technology, e.g., docusign, email, etc. to move things along efficiently. – Gwen 45th Ave S
Travis knows the greater Longfellow neighborhood very well. He provided a very professional assessment of our house and presented a clear marketing plan. Once we selected Travis to sell our house, he laid out the timeline and things that needed to be done before listing the house. We worked together to list at a good price, and generated a lot of foot traffic to sell the house quickly and very close to list price.
I highly recommend Travis and his team! – Matt Huston
Travis assisted us in both selling and purchasing our present home. Travis was always available and would be able to get us showings immediately with little or no notice. Travis lives in the general area where we were selling and wanted to buy. This was helpful, as he had direct knowledge of the local comps and was able to provide accurate advice on setting a price for selling and for bidding on the new one. He set realistic expectations for selling our home and we were very pleasantly surprised when our home exceeded our asking price. Travis also did a terrific job in negotiating the purchase price when we bought our present home and provided us with a worry-free experience. We ended up buying our present home for significantly less than the asking price even though the asking price was accurate for the market. I would recommend Travis to anyone buying or selling a home. He really listened to us about what we wanted and carried out our wishes until we sold our home and found another that was just right. – Matt Johnson Sold 4440 15th Ave S and Bought in Southwest Minneapolis
Travis was always available to us-anytime we had a question and for many same day showings. He understood how fast the market was moving in the area we wanted to be and he responded as such. We would not have been able to get the house we wanted, in the neighborhood we wanted, for the price we wanted without his around the clock dedication! At the same time, Travis used his innovative approach to market our old house and was able to generate tons of interest that led to multiple offers and let us be in the position to select the best offer. – Shelley Johnson Sold 4440 15th Ave S and bought in Southwest Minneapolis
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Travis. While we relocated out of state, Travis went more than the extra mile to make it easy for us to complete this transaction. I would highly recommend Travis to any person contemplating selling their home.” Doug & Patty G. 4533 47th Ave S
“Travis, I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for helping me find and purchase a home. You made everything SO easy and smooth for me. From day one, you made it your goal to help me find what I was looking for, constantly e-mailing properties that you felt matched what I wanted always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. No matter what the obstacle was you found a way around it!! You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for our best interest. Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I’m DEFINITELY sending them to you.” ~ Hodan Mohamed (Bought in Savage, MN)
Travis and Casey went way beyond what I would expect from Realtors. Their efforts, optimism and support during the sales process kept me going in a tough market, and they got the house sold in a short timeframe given the market conditions. I would recommend them to anyone!
– Margaret Landry
Exceptional Agents- went beyond the realm of a typical/normal Realtor/Agent. Great marketing skill – good feedback from open houses. Travis and Casey Did Not just list the property – they were active participants & helpful participants up to the day of closing. Would highly reccommend to friends and neighbors.
-Shirley & George Janssen
Travis, you’re one exceptional human being and you made my real estate transactions easy and fun! Thanks for your expertise and your great sense of humor.
– Barbara Van Deinse
As first time home buyers Travis made us feel that throughout the process there was at least one person we could trust.
Jeremy & Janie
I was completely satisified with Travis´s service. Throughout the process my best friend and I started looking for something completely different than what we finally chose and in fact ended up having some construction issues. He was patient and grounding through a difficult, stressful, confusing, exciting time of becoming a first time home buyer.
– Joselynne Little
“We were beyond satisfied with the service we received from Travis. He worked quickly to find exactly what we needed.”
– Nathan & Brittany Lundgren
Travis was an absolute pleasure to deal with, when we recently listed and sold our house with him. His dedication to serving our best interests, combined with his initiative, marketing skills and a high degree of knowledge and professionalism, greatly impressed us. He consistently went well beyond the normal duties of a Realtor, helping to stage the house for sale. Above all, he showed a high degree of integrity at all times. We would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends. Indeed, we already have! Dr. Stephen and Susan Strother
