Paul has helped me sell one house already and is in the process of helping on another home. As a seller Paul has always kept me informed on the process, explained my options, and his recommendation. Paul was currently in first year as a realtor when I worked with him, but I would not have guessed that by working with him. I will use Paul again in the future and have already referred him to two of my friends.
I highly recommend Paul Yahnke for anyone buying or selling a house! He did an amazing job selling my house in Bloomington, MN. Once he officially put it on the market, he also took the time to list it on over 350 websites in order to ensure it was well circulated. The first, and only, weekend the house was on the market, Paul had an open house. In order to maximize the open house and increase potential buyers’ perception of demand, strategically, Paul made up professional looking fliers that he hand delivered, in the pouring rain!, in near-by neighborhoods. This gave neighbors something they could share with a friend or family member who may desire to live in the neighborhood, as well as peak their interest. Paul went above and beyond! His efforts paid off because we had a verbal offer by the end of the open house (3rd day on the market), and a written, full price offer by the 5th day on the market. His negotiation skills played a key role in the price that I received, hands down. SOLD!! Seriously, what realtor actually would care so much that they would actually door knock in torrential rain for you? Paul 'said' he would go above and beyond for me when I signed on with him. He actually meant it, and his efforts resulted in a full price offer for me...fast!
Paul is willing to do nearly anything to find you a house. He takes the motto to exceed your expectations seriously. Even though we live out of town he has previewed houses for us including sending us pictures he had taken with his phone. He even went door knocking in the rain to try and find us a house in our ideal location. We would recommend him to anyone.
Paul worked hard to sell our home and made some awesome flyers to accomplish that end SOLD result. He encouraged us through two buyers who decided to change their minds and a delay in our closing due to "paper work" issues with our third buyer’s underwriter. He understood our disappointment and frustration when buyers dropped out and he persevered and encouraged us to a sale which was over listing price. He has since followed up with us to see how we our doing in our new home which we are very pleased with. He showed us homes that met our criteria and we are happy with our sale and purchase! Good job, Paul!
Paul was very responsive to all my questions, and answered back in a timely matter. We did not live too close to each other, yet he was able to provide me all the required documents to sign. Paul worked very hard to get me the house I wanted. I would highly recommend Paul.
