Closing with Island View Realty and MN Title was an easier and smoother than past experiences.  Nina did a good job of selling our father’s home and keeping us informed.

 

Craig & Pam of Gwinn, MI

Vern and Pam of International Falls, MN

Nina was very good about answering our questions and returning our calls and e-mails.  The DocuSign system that she used worked very well.  We are new to the area and she was very helpful offering information that we asked about.  We felt she was very honest and sincere, she said we could call on her if we had any questions in the future.  It was nice to have met her.

Thomas & Margaret of Kabetogama, MN

We have used other real estate agencies before and there is no comparison.  We were consistently kept informed and updated by IVR even if no one was looking at our listing.  It was a 100% positive experience.  Tim and Char were professional and kept us informed throughout the process.  The transaction went smoothly with special attention to detail and privacy.  We would definitely refer others to IVR and would choose IVR for any future needs.  Thank you!

 

Kelly of International Falls, MN

I bought my house through Nina a while ago.  I had a good experience with her then, so I knew if I ever sold my house I would have her as my agent.  She was excellent!  It didn’t take her long at all to sell my house, only about one and a half months.  Thanks Nina!

Dan & Char of International Falls, MN

We have used several other real estate agencies before and our experience with Island View Realty was superior to the experiences we have had with the other agencies.  Nina was outstanding.  She made home hunting exciting and fun.  Her positive attitude and honesty were remarkable.  She is one great lady that does her job with a passion.  We were fortunate to share this experience with her.

Sasha & Bob of International Falls, MN

This was the first time we’d purchased a home listed by an agent, but it was a great experience.  Char & Tim were wonderful to work with – knowledgeable, hard-working and dedicated to helping their clients.  Our purchase was smooth and uneventful — Just the way we like things to go!

 

Emily of International Falls, MN

This is my first time buying a home and I would highly recommend Island View Realty for any first time buyer.  Jordan was amazing and very helpful!  He and the other agents always worked with my schedule whenever something needed to be done.

IVR Offers a very personal and engaged manner of service.  Nina did an exceptional job of following up on every step from start to settlement process.  I was very pleased and left a happy client of IVR, Nina is a total professional, yet personable enough to make you feel comfortable with all aspects of the transaction.

 

Teri of International Falls, MN

I have used another real estate agency before and IVR was very comparable in that I had fantastic agents from both agencies.  Heather was an absolute pleasure to work with!  She was super positive and kept me informed and on track.  I will definitely be calling Heather in the future with any real estate needs!

 

Annie of Buffalo, MN

Nina was professional, efficient, and kind-hearted.  Sometimes agents can be hard/coarse,  where Nina made the experience most pleasant!  We bought our home with her through a friend’s referral, and when it came time to think about selling, we agreed without doubt to contact Nina again.  We would and have recommended Nina to our family as a realtor!  Thank you!

 

Stan and Darlys of Waverly, IA

If it wouldn’t have been for Jordan and his persistence to work through all the paperwork and problems we had in purchasing I think we would’ve walked away from it.  We thank him from the bottom of our hearts!

 

Troy and Joan of International Falls, MN

Tim and Char were very helpful and accommodating!

 

Matt of Ranier, MN

IVR was very helpful and responsive.  I would not hesitate to work with them again.

 

F & E of International Falls, MN

When compared to other agencies IVR seemed more “open” in the relationship.  We felt we could trust our agent, Char Watson.  We were dealing with health issues as well as trying to sell our house.  Char went above the duty of an agent and took the time to be a friend.  Her guidance was appreciated!  We also felt good about Jake’s work and appreciated Jordan’s personal touch.  Thank you!

David & Aloyce of International Falls, MN

Major contrasts between IVR and any past real estate agencies:  in clarity; marketing strategy; team effectiveness; client support; focus on the task; and high energy toward getting the property sold!  There is no doubt about the professional quality of Jordan Pearson and his sales staff.  As sellers we appreciated the professionalism and knew IVR would represent our interests.  The result speaks for itself.  We appreciated Jordan’s knowledge of the real estate world, which put things in perspective and helped us navigate any potential concerns.  Further, we had a great experience with IVR’s personable, competent and helpful office staff.  Such genuine thoughtfulness prevailed throughout our relationship with IVR from the signing of the purchase agreement to the closing.  Jordan Pearson and Nina Cole-Smith did a beautiful job of keeping this process moving forward.  As sellers we appreciated the simple but important things such as the prompt, accurate answers to our questions, and that all in person discussions were done discreetly and at our convenience.  Our Realtor/Client relationship was comfortable and positive and our confidence in Jordan’s effectiveness was well placed.  Further, Jordan’s explanations to our questions and supportive attitude relieved any stress and fostered our ability to move on to the next stage of our lives.

 

Rich from International Falls, MN

IVR was a 100% improvement over other agencies I have used in the past.  The agent kept in touch with each showing which was very helpful.  Also he made suggestions about remodeling and pricing.

 

David & Lela of International Falls, MN

We have used other realtor’s in the past and there is no comparison.  Most of our real estate office experiences (especially when we were selling) were painful.  I have been checking IVR online for over a year to get an idea of what was available.  I checked other offices at first, but finally only looked at IVR’s website.  Char was so fantastic!  She made us very comfortable from the first moment.  We have sold two houses in the past.  Each time we felt the realtor had gone over to the other side.  We always knew Char represented the sellers, but we had complete faith that she wanted the best experience for us also!

 

Traci & Chuck of International Falls, MN

We had a wonderful experience with Char & Tim Watson.  Selling the home was very bittersweet and emotional for us and they were very sensitive to our situation.  They always gave us positive feedback and made the process very smooth.  I would and will recommend them to those I know.  We are very thankful and grateful for all they did for us.

 

Jon & Josh of International Falls, MN

IVR had incredible service compared to other realtors.  Jordan was amazing to work with.  All staff were a delight to meet.  We will use IVR again!

 

Jerry of International Falls, MN

IVR was overwhelming in comparison to other agencies and Jordan was great.  He is the best, he sold our place in about 4 days.  I don’t know of anything that could be better than working with Jordan.  He has a fantastic personality and he is #1 in everything he does.

 

Marilyn of International Falls, MN

Nina was wonderful.

 

Tammy of Winnipeg, Manitoba

Char was very helpful and explained the various real estate documents very thoroughly.  She was sympathetic with our particular situation.

Char and Tim were extremely cooperative and pleasant to work with.  They were always on time and helpful.

 

Sandra of Austin, TX

Kim was pleasant to work with.  Our property was vacant and no one lived in town so Kim helped with the resultant issues, such as letting us know we needed pest control services.  Kim responded quickly to email and phone calls.

 

Tim of International Falls, MN

Heather did an excellent job, she was very timely and thorough in her communication and will all the required disclosures.  She is detailed and very easy to work with.  Thank you Heather for a job well done.

 

Tony & Cyndi of International Falls, MN

IVR is above and beyond any other real estate offices or agents I have used in the past.    Jake is really on the ball and we hope to do more business with him in the future.

 

William of International Falls, MN

My experience with Jake was painless and he helped me every step of the way.  I wouldn’t have a home of my own without him.

 

Bill and Kristen of International Falls, MN

I used another local real estate company at one time.  It was a bad experience.  IVR helped me for over a year to find the right place.  We actually have worked with two agents.  Both were extremely pleasant and an absolute pleasure to work with; very professional, courteous and fun.  After this experience, I wouldn’t even consider any other Realtor.  It was just a fluid, professional, great time leading up to the purchase of our dream home!

 

Brian of Fargo, ND

I was extremely satisfied with IVR.  5 Star rating.  Heather did a great job while having to deal with a demanding out of town lender.  She was very professional and helped with my patience.  Very satisfied with her great performance.  IVR sold my house and I was able to close the deal faster than I expected.  Thank you very much.

 

Chisa of International Falls, MN

Jordan was amazing!!  He walked us through the whole process and was very informative and patient with our lack of seller’s knowledge.  I would recommend IVR to all who plan to sell or buy.  Great company for sure!!

Char was very helpful every step of the way in my journey of purchasing my home.  she always communicated very quickly and really went the extra mile so the purchase would go smoothly!  Hugs to Char and a pat on the back!

 

Ed & Mary of International Falls, MN

IVR at this point is the best.  Agents were extremely helpful and dealt with several problems that required results and they came through.  Our agents were Tim & Char Watson and I’d recommend them to others.  We are very happy with how things turned out.

 

Berneice of International Falls, MN

IVR is the best when it comes to choices, communication and friendliness.  You couldn’t ask for more.  I can describe Jordan with one word:  “PERFECT”.  Perfect agent, business man, owner, friend and from what I hear, a great boss, too.

 

Ted of Ranier, MN

IVR was far better than when I listed with ********.   Nina and Heather were terrific!  I think you should give Nina a really big bonus.

 

Patty of Grand Rapids, MN

I could not have been more pleased!  Thank you for finding a wonderful buyer for our home.  It made selling the house so much easier!  Thanks!!

 

Kyle & Jeanmarie of International Falls, MN (On selling their home)

After attempting a “FSBO” sale for one year we decided to have IVR sell our home.  It was sold within 12 hours of signing with our agent!  We have no regrets!  Nina was understanding and compassionate and we are forever grateful!  We love our home.

 

Kyle & Jeanmarie of International Falls, MN  (On purchasing a home)

Our experience with IVR and our agent was incredible!  We were looking at homes for more than a year and finally found exactly what we were looking for.  Our agent was amazing and patient with us.  She helped make the process easy and less stressful.

 

John and Marsha of International Falls, MN

IVR was superior in handling our real estate needs – communication was far better.  Char was attentive and worked to find the right properties in our interest range.  Our need to complete the transaction mostly by email, phone and text (due to our living out of state) was well handled and professionally performed throughout the entire search, negotiation and escrow process.  Well done Char!  We do appreciate your superb efforts on our behalf.

 

George of International Falls, MN

I had dealings with real estate offices once before and IVR stood head and shoulders above them.  Everyone at IVR was very professional and friendly and especially my agent, Heather McBride.  Heather worked tirelessly to make the whole process as smooth, complete and tension-free as possible.  There were times that I would receive an email from Heather after 7:00 PM, sometimes even around 10:00 PM, which indicated she was working late (all day and all night!).

 

Nora & Lenny of International Falls, MN

We have used numerous other real estate companies over the years and IVR, bar none, is the very best agency we have dealt with.  Both buying and selling IVR was a dream to work with.  Jordan Pearson made sure our transactions were smooth, went extremely quickly and were done in a professional manner.

 

Ken of International Falls, MN

Kim was excellent and she had all the answers I needed.

 

Tom & Jennifer of St. Charles, Il

Island View Realty was recommended to me by someone I trust.  With all its listings in town it has access to many people, both selling & looking.  It was easy to stop in with questions that whoever was there would pass on or answer with all the information they all had.  In past times & places I learned that some agencies were slow to share listings with each other, making the choices smaller.
