Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Jared and his team help us purchase our home last year. He worked very hard with my husband to find our home while I was working in another state. Our home is perfect and Jared made sure everything was all set with inspections, paperwork, and much more! We are very happy here in the Northland of MN. "
-Sandra D, Client
"We are very satisfied with the timely fashion in which Kim helped us to sell our home. Kim is a great listener who is concerned about all of our needs, wants, and desires. She worked hard to be personal with us in a professional manner. She helped us to understand and navigate throughout the entire process. She was attentive and quick to respond to our questions searching for the best answers. She also knows how to handle multiple offers to get you the best deal. We highly recommend her services!"
-Thorsoncrew - 2019, Client
"Kim was very helpful in every aspect of helping us sell our lake place. She is very friendly and was willing to listen to our ideas. Kim would always be on time when showing us properties. I would recommend her to any future clients."
-Brian - 2019, Client
"As personal representative of my late mother's estate, I had to sell 3 large parcels of vacant land (including lake shore property) in Aitkin County MN. The transactions also involved a 'lot line adjustment' with the county planning and zoning office. Because I live in Illinois, we had to work together remotely for the entire process. Jared and his team (especially Rhonda) were exceptional in knowing and working with the county officials. They were also great in coordination with the surveyors. They know the market well, and after providing a market analysis, we selected a price point that generated significant interest in the first week on the market, attracting multiple offers which allowed us to negotiate a very competitive deal for the estate. I would recommend Jared and his team to anyone who is interested in buying or selling property in the greater Aitkin area"
-Grant Benjamin, Client
"We have been searching for a lake home for 2 years. It was not until I hooked up with this company that I found our dream lake property. Jared knew what we wanted after we spoke. It was the second house we looked at with him and we were sold. With him and his outstanding office manger Rhonda you cannot go wrong using this company."
-Ronnie Law , Client
"We couldn't be more pleased with the overall customer service that Jared and his entire team provided from the time they listed our home, until it was sold. They were always accommodating, extremely friendly, very proactive with our listing, and were always available to offer support and wisdom. We felt that their service was second to none, while at the same time my wife and I appreciated their honesty. While trying to sell a house can be a daunting task, Jared, Rhonda and the entire REMAX Northland team exceeded our expectations on every front. Not to mention, that they also sold my mother's house and she closed within 3 days of us closing on our home. Again, whether your buying or selling your home, I couldn't more highly recommend this company or team of dedicated agents, who ultimately became friends."
"Excellent open communication, did not feel pressured during sale of our property due to "lender" issues that delayed closing, Kim is calm, professional and consistent to get the deal done ASAP!!"

"Kim provided us with numerous listing to find our dream lake cabin. Kim was familiar and knowledgeable with the area and was always timely when questions were presented. She never pressured us and was very patient during the buying process. I would recommend Kim to family and friends. Thanks again Kim!"
"A very professional experience Dealing with Jared and Rhonda - it just doesn't get any better than the experience I had when I needed questions and curiosities answered thru Rhonda. Excellent service selling my lake shore cabin. Thank you!"
-Todd & Patricia (Sold our cabin 2018), Client
""I wasn't really looking for a realtor yet because we were just starting to think about buying a cabin but Kim contacted me and was not pushy at all. She would check in with me every once in awhile and when I found a place on Zillow that I wanted to look at I called her and she showed it to me. We recently closed on the property and are very happy with the whole process and Kims service." 4/17/2018"
"Great buying experience! Realtor Jared Lundgren was friendly, professional and knowledgable. He served as a dual agent on our transaction and he fairly represented both parties. Jared receives the highest recommendation I can offer. If you are fortunate enough to work with him on the next purchase or sale of your home/property, you will be very satisfied. Outstanding service by the entire team!"
-Bobbie J. Danielson, Client
"Found the house that wasn't on the market and worked with me on a complicated buy. He is the guy to use in this area as the level of professionalism in "2nd home" areas can be pretty low. He brings a ton of big city experience to a market that is full of agencies that are far from his level of service."
"Jared was very knowledgeable and prompt and friendly. He made buying a home easy. He found the home we were looking at our price. I would highly recommend Jared and Remax Northland to anyone looking to buy or sell any real estate."
"We are very pleased with the results of our sale. Jared knows the real estate business well and the area. He and his co-workers were very expedient in giving us the results of our showings. We appreciate their efforts."
"Jared assisted in the sale and the purchase of our homes. He did an excellent job and refused to give up when parts of the deal became challenging. We will be using him again and highly recommend Jared to anyone looking to buy or sell property!"
"We highly recommend Jared Lundgren. He was so helpful in our search for a lake home. He was so patient in our search and his knowledge made our experience so enjoyable. We are so thankful for his help in purchasing our new lake home."
"I can highly recommend Jared for a realtor without any hesitation. He was very patient with us and gave us some great advice which was in our best interest, but maybe not his. He was available in the evenings and was always cheerful and willing to help us. I feel fortunate that we worked with him. We did not buy a Lake home, but if we had and I would still have given him a five star review."
"Mary and I just want to thank you again for all of the help finding the right cabin. I know we were very picky trying to find the right one. Your knowledge of the area really helped us lock in about 3-4 lakes. Also, thanks for the gift of knifes, we plan on leaving them at the cabin and will think of you each time we use them. Like Mary said we would like to take you and your wife out next spring. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks again! Oct 2017"
