Tom was a good landlord to my daughter, when she rented a studio apt.in uptown. We decided to go with him as a realtor when we looked to purchase a condo for our daughter in downtown, MPLS. That was the best decision we made. Tom was 100% trustworthy, professional and thorough and helped us find the perfect condo. He even helped us move the furniture from my daughter's old studio to the new condo and had helpful suggestions about the fixes the condo needed. For any future dealings in MN, my wife and I would go to him, without any hesitation.
Tom helped us through the process of buying our first home. We are happy with our home and what we paid, but I think what really sets Tom apart is his style of working with people. Throughout the process he gave us our options and his advice but never pushed us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns. He was very flexible with showing times and responded promptly to any requests. During the negotiations he provided us with concrete information to help us make an informed offer and was willing to have hard conversations with the seller. Working with Tom was a great experience.
We have known Tom Stutsman for over 22 years. Since we first moved to the Minneapolis in 1991, Tom has, without fail, been right there for us, and has employed his wealth of resources to help us with all our housing needs. Coupled with his superior market knowledge and skill as a property management professional and realtor, his talent for providing sound advice and steady direction has served us immeasurably, whether we were renting an apartment or buying a house. In addition, he consistently exercises his competence with a friendly, personable demeanor and a reassuring smile. Tom has demonstrated to us time and again his very real commitment to ensuring our comfort and well-being when it comes to living accommodations, without applying any pressure, and offers any number of options within our range of affordability. Responsiveness and sensitivity to the concerns of those he serves are consistently his top priority. We would recommend Stutsman Realty without reservation to anyone looking for a place to rent to finding a home in this beautiful Twin Cities area.
In our recent real estate transaction / selling process, Martha provided excellent marketing communication services in managing invites, flyers and internet exposure such as website, blog, constant contact, LinkedIn, and Twitter. In addition, her periodic stats reports gave us "real-time" feel for the progress being made towards selling our home. We truly believe that our house sold faster because of her.
Have a house to sell? Call Tom at 952-460-0804. I call him when I have clients' homes to sell and he gets the deals done quickly with great financial results for my clients. I trust his judgment on what needs to be done to get houses ready to sell - usually with very limited client funds to work with. The next property I need to sell was described in court as a [challenging] house and, even so, Tom is willing to work with me on it…"
After returning to the city I found a perfect, and affordable apartment owned by Tom Stutsman. Our first meeting was only the first example of his kind manner and his investment in his property and his renters. He listens to suggestions, makes changes where helpful to the tenants, maintains a clean and well-maintenanced property, and upgrades the property. When i have something in my home which needs to be tended to, Tom is on task. He is a personable landlord who cares about his buildings and his renters. i would always choose to live in a property owned by Tom. He is an outstanding landlord, and a good person.
I recently moved to uptown & have been so thrilled with Tom as the property manager of my building. He's been responsive to my concerns & is always adding improvements to the building. Couldn't be happier!
Tom helped my wife and I purchase our very first home (in Edina, MN). This was an unusual transaction because the house was being sold directly by the owner and we were already residing there as tenants. Mr. Stutsman was an invaluable resource from the moment I first called him all the way to the closing meeting. Tom provided expert yet easy to understand advice regarding location, real state practices, building condition, pricing, appraisal & inspection, etc. He also made himself available to us 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week – we visited several hours in the evening hours and weekends, and we often chatted/emailed outside of regular business hours. I am a very skeptic individual by nature but Tom won me over with his dedication, hard-work, and honesty. If you are looking for an agent who will value you and that will treat your investment like his own, than I suggest you give Tom a call.
We are thrilled with every aspect of our work with Tom. His knowledge and expertise in helping us sell our home went well beyond our expectations. He advised us on what work we should do to prepare our home in order to sell it at the best price and by following his advice to the letter, we had 5 offers in 2 days and sold our home at $10,000 over the asking price! I trust Tom completely and couldn't recommend him more highly.
We purchased a downtown condo through Tom, and like always, got the best professional service that comes with working with Tom. This was the third time I used Stutsman Realty. Tom's knowledge, expertise and focus on the details is second to none. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your assistance in selling my aunt's home. It's nice to know there are professional real estate people like you who are available to help clients with long distance real estate challenges. Your professionalism and dedication were apparent very early in the process and I believe the quick sale of the property was directly related to your commitment and willingness to go beyond the call of duty. I strongly recommend Stutsman Realty to anyone looking for a satisfying real estate experience. Thank you again.
I was very lucky to have my good neighbor suggest that I hire you as my realtor for the sale of my house. I think of you daily with gratitude for your work and help. People who hear about the sale of the house in just one week after it was put on the market are amazed, especially at the current financial climate, and at a fair price. Tom, you were helpful to me in so many ways beyond the normal duties of a realtor, and I am forever thankful to you. I think of you as a good friend and I will not hesitate to recommend you highly to anybody who needs realty help.
As an attorney I have had the opportunity to work with dozens of real estate professionals in the course of representing my clients. Many of my clients are elderly and have very little contact with the real estate world, and the sale of the homes may be the largest legal transaction of their lives. It is important for those people to have a real estate professional that understands their needs, and will take the time to make them feel comfortable with this process.
I have observed Tom Stutsman to be that type of real estate professional, in transactions involving people selling their homes of 40 or 50 years and transitioning them into comfortable retirement condominiums or assisted living residences.
While I as an attorney may understand the real estate transaction, Tom Stutsman has the sales and negotiation skills to make the transaction possible...I know that he has hard work ethics and the integrity to handle any real estate challenge. I recommend Tom Stutsman to handle any of your real estate needs because I know you will be very satisfied.
You are a gentleman and you are very professional at your job. You treated me so well, and went above and beyond what I expected! Thank you again and again.
We had the privilege of having Tom as our landlord for about seven years. He genuinely cares about his tenants and his properties. If an issue ever came up with anything at our apartment, Tom would have the problem solved in less than 24 hours. We were truly impressed with his communication skills and professionalism. We no longer live in the Twin Cities, but if we were to find ourselves to return one day, we would not hesitate to live in one of Tom's properties or have him be our realtor. Tom is trustworthy and dedicated to serving his clients well.
Well done! Without a doubt you have exceeded our expectations on obtaining top dollar for our home. Your focus, your network of contact with other office managers, agents, and business owners, and your high attention to detail produced spectacular results for our family. You provided the willingness, ability, and energy to meet problems head-on with high attention to detail. This produced the results we were looking for. Your knowledge of the real estate market gave us high market visibility, and LOTS of excellent service. You can count on doing business with us again.
Tom's honesty in dealing with vulnerable elderly is most refreshing. We experienced some attempts to get a sale at below market rates from others, but you were focused on getting a fair price for all concerned. Tom has a special interest in working with the elderly, and he extended himself to accommodate their special needs. He marketed on a personal referral basis without immediate multi-listing which minimized intrusion on my mother, and he successfully found a buyer before multi-listing became necessary. He gave personal service in helping the elderly buyer and seller in meeting their sale and closing obligations. He offered help with temporary housing arrangements, and moving problems, which went far beyond what anyone would expect of a professional Realtor.You are one of a kind, and we wish you the best in your future, and we recommend you without reservation to others - especially those with special needs.
To this day I am still so grateful that I was lucky enough to have you as my first landlord!
I have rented numerous apartments in the past and all I have to say is that the level of service, care and professionalism that Tom has provided to me as a tenant is hard to come by. I absolutely loved my apartment and will miss the quality neighbors that lived in the building. He is a great landlord that I could depend on and that cares in the upkeep and well-being of his properties. Thanks Tom for providing such an enjoyable living experience!
Tom's prompt response, integrity, knowledge, and professionalism, were the reasons that I selected Tom to represent me. I am highlighting some of his major attributes.
Tom has responded to all of my apartment service needs in a timely manner. Whenever I have needed him to fix something or help me out in some way he always is prompt and professional. It is very refreshing to have a landlord who really cares about his properties!
Not only did Tom succeed in selling our home, but he found the ideal home for us and for the sellers of that home. All in all, he sold three homes, and he made it work to such perfection that all three parties closed on their properties on the same morning.
Tom has helped me with my real estate needs. I bought a condo and sold my home. Tom did an outstanding job, being there for me every step of the way.
