Chris and his team were excellent!

! They really put our minds at ease. We had a complicated sale of our parents house with many moving parts and pieces and different contractors and inspections and they managed it all. It could not have been any easier. From the start including what we should and should not do before putting the house on the market to an easy closing, we would totally recommend Chris and his team to anyone looking to sell. Based on our experience - they will be excellent and get you top dollar for your property.

I used several agents to try and sell my twinhome a year ago.

Granted the market was poor, but Chris was the agent who got it sold! His team does a great job of prep to help you sell and get the best result. He is up beat and funny, but really knows his stuff. Makes the whole process easy and fun.

Karen Hansen7

Amazing.

Willing to work around the clock to help me get what I needed. His team was always making sure I was okay and ready for what was next. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!

Chris did a awesome job.

We did do everything they suggested prior to putting our house on the market and it was worth it. Chris told us to be ready for showings and offers and that’s exactly what happened. Our house sold within 24 hours with multiple offers over our asking price. We know Chris and his team where the right choice for us.

Very knowledgeable, understanding, focused, and professional.

Chris Rooney's team of agents offer the whole package when selling a home.

He is extremely knowledgeable, his staff are very responsive and thorough. He is honest, detailed and direct about the market and our home's place in it. We have had other agents in past years try to sell our home, working with Chris and his team is an experience completely above all others. Meet with him once, and you'll understand you can trust the sale of your home to him. I have no doubt, with his professional team, that our challenging house will sell.. very happy seller.

Chris is the best realtor!

He comes very prepared. Tells you exactly what needs to be done to sell. Seamless process, great negotiator and no drama. Very responsive! Highly recommend!

Truso22

Chris and his team are the best!

Professional, knowledgeable, and responsive all along the way. They made our house the best, aggressively marketed it, and got top dollar for us. Not the cheapest, but you more than make up for that with the higher sale price. I'd recommend him any day.

phil raines4

Chris did an awesome job with the sale of our home.

His expertise in the real estate field resulted in a quick and trouble-free sale of our home. He answered/ resolved any questions and concerns we had in a very timely manner. Chris' professionalism and knowledge made for a very pleasant experience throughout the entire sale process. I would highly recommend Chris for your real estate needs.

Chris was very professional during the entire process of selling our home and on the purchase of our new home.

We felt comfortable enough with him that we used his servies, enlisting dual agency. Normally I would not have enlisted dual agency but he was very honest and upfront during the entire process and we felt very comfortable with his integrity as a Real Estate Broker. Chris came through on all his promises without needing any reminders on any of the terms originally agreed upon. In fact, for our 2 closings (sale of our old home & purchase of our new one) he was able to schedule them back to back at the same office so we were not driving all over town signing documents. This was very much appreciated saving us time and money. My wife and I would both recommend his servies to anyone needing help with their real estate transactions. Btw- I am a very particular person about who I give my business to. In the end I am very satisfied and happy we chose to use Chris Rooney for our real estate transactions.

Chris and his team are very knowledgeable and proactive.

We never had to worry about a thing. They sold our home in 3 weeks! It was definitely the easiest and most worry-free home sale yet!

bkbair4

Chris has helped me to buy and sell multiple homes in the last 20 years.

Chris is straight forward in his approach and he is thorough with his work. He would always lay out all the options and help us sift through how to move forward. I trusted Chris so much I referred him to my family as well!

truso22

We had a great experience working with Chris Rooney and his team.

We couldn’t believe how responsive he and his crew were to all of our requests and questions that we had throughout the selling process. Our house sold fast and I am certain it was because of the good Marketing (including staging), excellent communication and Chris Rooney's 28 years of experience in the industry was a plus!

Shelly landherr

I would definitely recommend Chris Rooney and his team to our family and friends.

They were wonderful to work with. They responded quickly and patiently with all our questions. Jimly Harris was especially supportive and knowledgeable. We love our new forever home and pleased with our offer on our previous home. Great experience all around!

cindyle2

Very professional process with great knowledge of the Prior Lake area.

Spends a lot of time prior to listing the house on professional photos, staging advice and researching the proper listing price. Once we listed sold the home on the first weekend we had an open house. Overall very easy to work with Chris and his team would highly recommend!

candycove

Chris was very helpful, honest and I trusted his advise.

Very knowledgeable and experienced in this changing market. I have referred him to several of my good friends and they are all happy with the service his team provided. Highly recommend!!

jlwilson63

I would highly recommend Chris.

Chris and his team were great to work with. Everything from getting out house ready to sell and most importantly finding our dream home!

cindyle2

We have worked with Chris Rooney and his team of real estate experts to sell 2 homes (both sold within a few days of going on the market) and purchase 2 homes in the Prior Lake area.

Chris and all of his associates are such a pleasure to work with and truly represented and negotiated our best interests, whether we were buying or selling a home. Chris has excellent knowledge of the marketplace and gave us realistic and credible suggestions on price ranges and various terms of sale. Everyone in Chris's office were very polite and respectful of our personal situation and always kept our best interest at heart. Chris's personal guidance helped us determine the optimum listing price of our old home and offer price of our new home. In both cases, we ended up selling extremely close to our listing price on the house we sold and the same on the purchase of our new home. All of our closings went very smooth with no last minute surprises. As future real estate needs arise, there is no question we will use Chris and his team again. We highly recommend Chris Rooney to anyone needing a real estate professional to either buy or sell their home.

We would not hesitate to recommend Chris and his team, who sold our lake shore home in Shakopee.

One of us has experience as a real estate appraiser and assessor, and had a general idea of what the property could sell for. The other is a sales executive and recognizes effective strategies in sales and marketing. We had three different agents give us an independent market analysis. The three agents were within a reasonable range of each other and what we anticipated to list it for. We were most impressed with Chris and his team. He and his associate Karin, were so positive and excited about our property when they first came by. They had great suggestions about preparing and marketing it for sale. We had two offers in less than 36 hours after it went "live", despite one VERY rainy showing day. We're convinced it was largely due to the drone footage shown for the pre-list blitz. It was amazing. Lastly, Chris, Bruce, Melissa and Jimly were the best. The team was very effective in communicating with us, sometimes under stressful circumstances.

cezzy123

We recently purchased a home he had listed for sale and sold our home through him also.

Chris is very easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and very professional. He has a good team of associates to work with that also handle the smaller details. Someone was always available when questions came up. Many times during the sale if there was a question or concern he knew the right answer and if it was going to be a problem or nothing to worry about. We were glad to have him on our side and would recommend him and his team again.

danielmcmpls

I've used Chris and his team every time I've sold or bought a house- Always felt he was looking out for my best interest- Very good at keeping us informed as to what was going on- Very professional and honest.

kloehr6

Chris Rooney and his team were impressive from start to finish.

Chris took time with us a year before we put our house on the market. We never felt rushed or that he didn't have the time. His experience and expertise is second to none and it showed with our process and the final result. Chris and his team helped us strategize what we needed to do with our house and got it on the market with ease. In 3 days we had 38 offers on our home and sold it within that time frame as well. I cannot say enough about the entire team. Karin, Stacy, and everyone else on their team deserve credit too. Hands down, some of the best service we have ever experienced in our life. I cannot state how vital Chris and his team were to a really smooth and easy process. They were phenomenal.

This is the 2 sell/buy transaction we have used Chris to assist us with in the past 10 years.

Our first home sold in 24 hours and our second home in approximately 3 days. Chris and his stager are excellent at telling you what is necessary to do before listing to make your house sell. Sometimes it's truly the little stuff that buyers can't over look so if you apply their recommendations, I can almost guarantee your house will sell fast!

As first time home buyers, we weren't sure where to begin and ended up working with Jimly based on a friend’s recommendation to use RE/Max.

When we first met, Jimly laid out the entire home buying process, what we could expect, and informed us of the market -- all in laymen terms that even we could comprehend. Throughout the entire process, she was very professional and made herself available during all hours of the day, even late into the evening, which was ideal for our schedules. We had one hiccup due to the error of our lender, which required us to back out of the offer two weeks prior to closing. We were devastated, and needed to find a new home before our lease was up. Jimly ensured us that we could get into our ideal home within our time constraints. Because of her guidance and unconditional support, we were able to find a home that met our needs. She did all the legwork, which enabled us to work through the process in a relatively relaxed fashion. We cannot express how grateful we were to have worked with such an experienced professional who catered to our needs with adaptability and optimism. We recommend Jimly Harris to anyone interested in buying or selling their home.
