"The team at Century 21 Atwood demonstrated outstanding customer service for us on the sale of our lake home recently. With all that’s going on in today’s world it felt great to have a professional and reliable team of individuals who handled all aspects of our home sale. From listing to closing, Connie, Erin, and the whole team was so supportive, we were always in good hands, which helped us feel confident about selling our home. The experience that Century 21 Atwood brings to the table made even the most unique of challenges seem manageable and the results were great. I would highly recommend the team at Century 21 Atwood and plan to use them again in the future." - Eric Wilkie, MS, CFRE Executive Director
"We are so thankful for Connie, Erin and the whole team at Century 21 Atwood for helping us sell our lake property. Connie and Erin not only gave us clear ideas that would increase our profit, but connected us to people who could help us start. We ran into personal obstacles in the course of getting our property ready for sale that delayed us several months, including postponing the listing more than once. Connie and Erin stuck with us as time ticked by, always positive, flexible, understanding, and never pressuring. When we were finally ready to formally list the whole team at C21 Atwood worked swiftly and professionally to get the listing up quickly. The photos were amazing and the on-line listing showcased our home at its best. After four days we had three offers through which they guided us. The purchase and closing details were handled smoothly and professionally-the easiest closing we have ever had! We are so grateful for such a wonderful outcome." - Sue and Chuck Gramith

"Connie is my sister-in-law and I knew that she was an extremely good realtor, but that was an underestimation once she got going on the sale. If she works has hard on all her listings as she did with me, I wonder when she has time to sleep. I was equally impressed with the Century 21 office and staff who she works for and with. They give REALTORS a good name!" - Bob Caspers, Ottertail Lake

"Connie is the best!!!. She is over the top helpful, kind and considerate, and smart. We were blessed to have worked with her on the sale of our wonderful property.

Thanks again for allowing her to work with us." - Lana and Tom Blair, Rush Lake

"I have known Connie for nearly 25 years and I can honestly say she gets excited about whatever she does and never misses the opportunity to make things better than they were before she got involved. I have observed her skills in dealing with people, in business and in the communities where she’s lived. She is gifted and uniquely qualified in building long term relationships. Connie remains strong during adversity and have been blessed to watch her deal with both losses as well as successes. While she believes in success, more importantly, she believes in “significance”. I have also admired her for her valuable qualities and have regarded her with evermore respect. Connie is intelligent, a quick study, naturally curious, always there to protect her values, yet is easy going in nature. She is a team player, goal oriented and has a sense of urgency to get things done. She is keenly devoted to her work, but being a real and genuine people person, she has also finds time to get involved around her. Unlike many people, when she adopts a cause or pursues a new interest, she is guaranteed to be highly motivated and committed. Connie has also demonstrated that she understands what business is all about. Almost without exception, however, she puts others first. She is driven in equal measure by both passion and compassion which is a secret to good business and genuine life-long relationships. She has also been an opportunist and thrives on new challenges as a method to grow and learn. Connie uses common sense in her approach to problem solving along with the gift of understanding technology. She leads with confidence and by example and has the unusual ability to notice what others overlook. Connie is timely with up to date information within her profession and maintains a well-educated approach in current affairs. She is a spiritually “gifted” woman and viewed as a pillar of strength to her family, friends and her community. Serving others first has molded her into the leader she is. I have no hesitation in recommending Connie Caspers for any project or professional activity she chooses. I am honored to know her!" - Dick Shorma
"Connie is very detailed and professional in how she goes about her business. Connie understands the central MN market place for homes, lake and commercial property. Her experience in the marketplace, and ability to find all the important information is impressive. I would recommend Connie for anyone looking for property in the Minnesota lakes area or southeastern North Dakota." - Tom K. Kenville
"We would like to make a contribution to a charity in your name for all the help you provided above and beyond." - Dr. Lyle Best and Pastor Jan Mehlhoff

"Please know how wonderful our home buying experience has been with Connie Caspers as our REALTOR®. She has been the most pleasant, helpful and encouraging coach for us as we searched for our retirement home in Minnesota. She returned my first phone call on a holiday weekend from her home to make arrangements to meet with us the very next day. She had carefully prepared listing information on several homes for us to see and guided us through information regarding the lake area and the nuances of lake living. Even after we returned to our home in Colorado, she walked us through preparations for an offer and kept us up to date daily on its progress with the sellers. She has promptly sent us additional listings by email of other properties in the area that fit our list of wants and needs throughout the winter months keeping us updated on potential properties for sale. Connie has given us well more than we ever expected from a real estate agent. Her caring service to us has been the best we've experienced in many years of home buying and selling!" - Tim and Ginger Lenzmeier
