Carriage Realty requests all of our buyers and sellers to
"rate our services" on a scale of 0-10 (with 10 being the best). Here is how we've rated:


"Hire more Realtors exactly like Chris or just clone Chris Swanson!"  Tony Mandile

"She's (Karen) Cool!  All 10's!" -The Blalock Family


"Great job Joan!  Thanks for your help with the sale of our house in such a short time frame!"  Tim and Amanda

I appreciate all the work Joan did to find my dream home. I know what I wanted was quite specific, and living three hours away didn't help. Joan's knowledge of the real estate market in Minnesota and Wisconsin was invaluable. I love my new home -- and so do the grand-kids -- THANKS!! - Sharon

"Thank you for the work Joan did for us when we decided it was time to sell our country home. We chose Joan because of the appreciation she had for the unique beauty of our rural acreage, which we felt was the homes' number one selling feature. Joan stood out as the Realtor who actually enjoyed hiking the property, becoming familiar with every acre. It was a pleasure working with Joan as you guided us through the process of getting our home ready for the market. Joan's experience and professionalism made the entire process positive as the home showed well and sold quickly."

I wasn't patient enough, but you kept on believing and trying! It was awesome! I can't tell you enough how many things fell into place!
