Mike T. sold a home in Brainerd

Chad has been our go to Realtor for well over 20 years. His attention to detail and marketing is really what separates him from the rest. I have referred numerous friends and family to him and his team. Every time I do, I get the same response: Wow! Chad and his team are amazing. Their communication is incredible and our home was everywhere! Do yourself a favor and sit down with Chad and his Team and see what they can do for you.

Alex G. bought a home in Baxter, MN

We thought buying a home remotely in this housing market was going to be emotionally trying, but Chad's Team made the process as painless as possible. As first-time home buyers, they were very patient with us and provided a lot of educational materials. We trusted them to put us in a home that would best suit our needs, and they did just that. :)

Susan D. sold a home in Brainerd, MN

We were very satisfied with Chads team in handling the sale of our lake home. We met with a member of Chads team originally but then got busy with work and never got back to him. He gave us time and called a month later to see if we were still interested. Im so glad he called back because our lake home sold in less than a week!

Bob B. sold a home in Brainerd, MN

Chad was very professional and kept us updated throughout the whole process. He was very active in marketing our home, it sold in a short period of time. I would use him again.

Jackie C. sold a home in Motley, MN

We had a very unique seasonal cabin that fit a select group of people. We had tried the year prior to sell it with a different realtor and got 0 showings. Exit Realty reached out and listed it this year and we got showings immediately and ultimately found buyers who loved the cabin. It wasnt an easy property to sell - especially a seasonal cabin during a pandemic - they did an excellent job marketing it. Hands down their marketing and amazing realtors are what make them stand out. More people will see your home or cabin if you list with these guys!
