Kind words from our clients.

I can't say enough about our experience with Eric and the rest of the Stafford Family Realtors team! It was truly a 5 star experience in every way in a very stressful, crazy and competitive sellers market. Eric and Sharla, and Jane helped us find and buy our very first home after seeing many homes and writing many offers. They are so skilled at what they do from knowledge about homes and cities/towns to writing competitive but reasonable offers. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone without hesitation as I know they will receive the best possible service. Thanks you guys so much for everything!

We worked with Sharla to find/buy a home in the Twin Cities metro area in the spring of 2020. We were moving back after being out of state for nine years. Previously we had lived in the SE metro area, but due to a new work commute, we were now looking at NW and SW areas. It was especially important to us that we find someone who was familiar with these areas, as well as someone who was professional, smart, responsive, and had a sense of humor. Sharla completely met our requirements. I found her online by looking at reviews and by looking at houses she had helped buy or sell in recent years. She responded quickly to my first inquiry and I felt immediately that it would be a good match. Sharla is very accommodating and friendly. She quickly got what we were looking for from the start.

We were also impressed with her business skills, so she was good at finding the house we wanted but was also great at completing the business side of the transaction. We are not easy clients as I have a hard time making big decisions like this and my husband and I prioritize different aspects of a home/lot, but Sharla was very patient. Since we were out of state and could only come on certain weekends, she was more than willing to go preview homes and facetime us as she walked through. She also did this when only my husband or I were with her and we wanted the other spouse to also see a house. She also worked hard to find homes not yet listed or coming soon to make sure we had as many options as possible. Sharla also cared about us as a family and not just finding us a house. We closed on our house in August 2020, but she has kept in contact with us to answer any questions we might have about the house or our new area. We would highly recommend using Sharla to help buy or sell your next house, she is a great Real Estate agent and an even better person.

Eric and Sharla just helped us sell our home (which we bought with them 7 years ago) and buy our new one. The whole process was unbelievably smooth even in this insane market. When we started they gave us a few quick fixes to make on our home to help us sell better. Many questioned why we’d put any money into our current home when it’s a seller's market but the Staffords are the experts and I am so glad we listened. After one day on market, 6 offers later at 10% over the asking price we had sold our home all thanks to Sharla and Eric. Eric did some behind-the-scenes negotiating and got us the best combination of all the offers into one great offer. Then comes the buying, which is supposed to be terrifying right now, right. Not with them. I gave them my insanely long super picky list of what I wanted in a home and Sharla was able to send me house options before they came upon regular site…

Not with them. I gave them my insanely long super picky list of what I wanted in a home and Sharla was able to send me house options before they came upon regular sites as coming soon. She’s honest- which I love because she saved me from buying a house that definitely would have been a mistake. The Stafford’s treated us like family and made sure to keep us out of any sticky situations. They were patient with all my indecisiveness and were available for any and all questions. When I found the house I knew was perfect for us, they helped us come up with a great and reasonable offer (it’s easy to spiral with crazy ideas in such a seller's market). We got the house and feel so incredibly blessed to have had such a smooth transition with Eric and Sharla by our side. I learned that when making such a large investment you definitely need to have the absolute best Realtors® looking out for you. They are so knowledgeable about all aspects of buying and selling. I’ll never use anyone else.

Selling a house can be stressful. However, it doesn’t have to be and can be minimized by selecting the right Realtor®. We went with the Stafford’s as we felt they brought the experience and knowledge necessary to sell our home quickly and at top dollar. From the initial consultation to final closing they were organized, thorough, and always had our interest in mind. Initial consultation provided us with a complete analysis and strategy as to how to sell our home quickly at the price we were excited about. Photos and showing, Sharla gave us some great recommendations on how to make our home show amazingly and stand above the competition. Showings, we had several open houses and private showings and ultimately sold our home in just 5 days keeping the disruption to life a minimum. In negotiation, Eric has tremendous knowledge when it comes to market value. He worked closely with the buyer's…

Closing, We did a remote close and the process went very smooth. I would highly recommend the Stafford’s to be your Realtor®.

We only have great things to say about our experience with Eric and Sharla in the sale of our home. Several months before the house went on the market, we sat down with Eric and Sharla to discuss the process and learn what we needed to do before listing. Over the next couple of months, we worked with them to prep the house. They were able to offer high-quality service providers referrals where needed and help us with decisions that could impact the sale of the home (fixture styles, color choices, etc). With our move taking us to Colorado, they even connected us with a top-performing Realtor® in Colorado which was greatly appreciated. Their team went above and beyond in working with us as we were out of town for several weeks just prior to listing. The staging, marketing, listing, and contract signing all had such complete attention to detail. In the end, our house quickly sold with multi…
