"We gave Bill Grunewald a thorough workout as we searched for a home for two years. During that time, he never once tried to rush us or make us accept anything we didn't like. Even though he had a number of homes listed himself, there was no pressure on us to consider any of those homes. Once we selected a home on Whitefish Lake, Bill handled all the details. He was always willing to hop in the car and head over to the house to meet us to take 'one more look.' Bill had a magical way of anticipating our questions and having the answers even before we asked. Overall, buying a home with Bill Grunewald was a great experience."
Jeremy was friendly no pressure, always available, honest good communication skills, Knowledgeable, helpful and sympathetic with our relocating emotions. I would stand on the streets handing out his cards. He was beyond wonderful."
"We wanted to buy our first Brainerd Lakes vacation home and we didn't know much about the area. Joan is so knowledgeable- she helped us narrow down the lake, elevation and surrounding area that met all our qualifications. We ended up buying a home near Nisswa and Joan did a great job of guiding us through the search process and the negotiations, and stayed in touch every step of the way until closing. She made the whole transaction very comfortable from start to finish."
We loved that our family and our desires for finding a home were so respected and made the primary focus of our housing search thanks Jeremy.
"The Grunewald's helped us buy lake property north of Aitkin, Minnesota and sell our home which was just down the road from our new property. Joan and Bill always cared about what was happening with our purchase and sale, and were very reassuring throughout the whole process. It's definitely not all about business with them-they really understand what you're going through and want you to feel comfortable with everything that's happening. Bill is more knowledgeable about Brainerd Lake real estate than any other agent we've worked with. Any time I had a question for him, he was right there with the answer. By the way, our home sold in one week! Thanks, Bill and Joan.
Friendly easy to work with, went above and beyond what the average agent does. Jeremy had prompt response to questions and phone calls. Sold our house fast! We interviewed four other agents.
"We worked with Joan Grunewald to buy our lake home in Crosslake. She always put our interests first. If we saw a home that she didn't think was right for us, she let us know. All through the process, Joan was available to answer questions and listen to our requests. We never had to wait long for her response-she was pretty much available to us non-stop. We can honestly say that Joan cared about the home we bought as much as we did!"
'"Thanks Jeremy for your wonderful service! We absolutely love our new home and neighborhood. You were personal & professional. Not pushy, you showed us houses based on our desires not what was available. You were very prompt in responding to phone calls we loved that.
"When I searched for a lake home, Joan was always willing to show me different options and discuss the pros and cons of each. She never rushed me or pushed me to make a decision. Joan was patient with all of my questions and would research anything I asked. When I finally decided to make an offer on a property I had seen a year ago, Joan and Bill went to check it out to make sure nothing had changed since I last saw it. After I made the offer, Joan accompanied the inspector while I was out of town. She is kind, honest and willing to go the extra mile (always with a smile!)."
Jeremy we truly appreciate all the hard work you put in to helping us locate, research and purchase our property. The exceptional personal service provided by you should be commended. You can definitely count on our recommendations for your services to our friends.
"I can honestly say that my experience with Jeremy Miller and Edina Realty was excellent. I can only say good things about you and your company and I have and will continue to refer to you personally, anyone that asks about buying or selling a home. Best of luck you!
"We met Joan through a listing for a home we wanted to see. We were so impressed with her relaxed, no-pressure style that we signed her up to sell our home south of Brainerd. Throughout the entire buying and selling process, Joan was very responsive to all of our questions and requests, and we never felt pressured to make a decision. She did a great job selling our home and smoothly coordinating the closings on the sale and purchase. It was a delight to work with her."
“We bought a couple of houses with Joan. She knows exactly what we’re looking for and never hesitates to tell us when she doesn’t think a property is right for us. She’s so intuitive that once we went to see a home for which we’d only seen photos. Joan was so convinced that we’d love the home, that she brought along the contract, which we signed right there! Joan is fair and honest, and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with her.”
"When it was time to sell my home on the Whitefish Chain there was only one Realtor I wanted to work with. As a licensed Realtor myself; I knew how successful the Up North Properties Real Estate Group is. Bill networked to sell my home, and he also lead me through a unique marketing process that helped me purchase a lovely townhouse on Cross Lake. Residential real estate is all about marketing. Bill Grunewald is all about marketing and integrity. Thank you Bill!"
"Marketing by Bill's team is top-notch. But at the end of the day, every seller or buyer must have complete confidence in the real estate agent they have entrusted with their personal real estate portfolio. Bill and his team put their considerable experience to work for us, they treated us respectfully, kept us informed and they got or Crosslake home sold for us. Thank you for a great job!"
"When I found out I had to move back to Wisconsin I called the Up North Properties Real Estate Group to list my house.
"We have sold multiple properties with the Up North Properties Real Estate Group. The current real estate market seemed more of struggle this time around but we had been receiving multiple updates and communications from them regarding the current market and showing feedback. We found this to be very helpful when making any price reductions. They have so much knowledge are the leaders in innovative marketing; they always have great ideas. We recently received a purchase agreement on a new construction that we built. The buyer was all the way from Germany and felt so comfortable with them and the extra's they were able to give him that he purchased it from across the ocean. Their website is a very powerful marketing tool for buyers and seller!
We are anxiously awaiting another successful sale from the Up North Properties Real Estate Group!"
"Since that first little cabin, we have purchased and sold four pieces of real estate with Bill at Up North Properties and have found that in every situation, he has gone the extra mile. He always made the extra effort."
"Being honest was a must with me and I found this quality in Bill and Joan. I am convinced that is why we sold my house so quickly in this challenging market. Bill and Joan were clear and consistent in their communication with me and together we reached our goal to get my house sold."
"Our property held a lot of memories for us and letting go isn't always easy, but the Grunewald's made us feel secure with the details and supportive of our needs. Bill did a great job! Thank you!"
"With Bill's experience and practical know-how, he made selling our home on the Whitefish Chain a successful real estate transaction."
“Joan made buying our home on South Long Lake a breeze. Thanks Joan for a fabulous job!”
"My fiancée and I found our perfect first home on Bill's Up North Properties website. Bill negotiated a fair price on a foreclosed home, and also led us through the process, including site visits and the inspections we need to protect our interests. Securing a mortgage and providing the title insurance policy were also part of Bill's one-stop shopping service and we did that almost exclusively online. We did attend our closing in person since we were excited first-time homebuyers! Bill made us feel secure and confident in this big first step toward homeownership."
"We began our cabin adventure knowing we wanted to be on Pelican Lake as we currently have family that also have a cabin on Pelican Lake. We had assumed with our narrow search criteria that finding a property would be easy. We contacted the Up North Properties Real Estate Group and were impressed with the quick response that we received. We then ventured out and looked at numerous properties but were unable to find just what we were looking for; Joan then decided that we should also look at some lots on Pelican Lake to determine if maybe building could be an option. We found a great lot and were shown a new construction home also built in the area that fit us perfectly. We are now in the process of building and couldn't be happier!"
"One of my friends referred me to Joan when I decided I wanted to live in the Crosslake area. I was living in Duluth and working full time so the only time I could look was on weekends.
We looked at a lot of homes. We put offers in on two different homes and I didn't get either of them. I was getting discouraged until we found a new one that had dropped in price. We went and looked at it and it was perfect for me. This time I wasn't going to miss out! We put the offer in that same day and I got it. I really enjoyed working with Joan."
"After losing out on a cabin in Western Wisconsin, we decided to try a new area in hopes of finding everything we wanted.
I found Bill while searching for lake homes on the Up North Properties web site. I didn't know the Brainerd Lakes area well but I had always heard it was a great place to make home. Bill was very patient and we looked at many homes I was impressed with all his knowledge about area lakes. He knew what was important to me, and that I really enjoyed fishing and hunting. We were successful I know live on the Whitefish Chain thanks Bill!
Bill knows the area; is thorough; knows what I am looking for and has successfully represented my real estate interests in several transactions.
"We found Joan and Bill through their Up North Properties website. User friendliness was true of the website and most importantly, working with Joan and Bill was more than user friendly. They were never pushy and they exceeded our expectations. Great People!"
"Bill and Joan took absolutely good care of me through a challenging transaction. Bill's patience and knowledge of real estate and Brainerd area Lakeshore are outstanding. I really enjoyed working with them!"
