They indicated that the type of service provided was above-and-beyond anything they have witnessed in the past and they just wanted to let you know how very much they appreciated you and your efforts.

Marie was very hardworking and efficient in finding houses to look at first, with our specifications and was able to help every step of the way- we appreciated her and her diligence in finding our house in such a short amount of time we had to work with- Thank you! We would have her work for us again if the need arose! We were able to search and find a house in less than a month- Marie handled everything with professionalism and yet understood our goals and had compassion for what we needed and wanted in a house- thanks again!

- Cory and Jennae Stadsvold, Elbow Lake MN

Charlie not only helped us through the home buying process, he was very helpful to us when we needed to know about utilities, services and any other questions we had about the community.

- Ron and Pat Norby

Amy also helped us buy the home we live in now, that's how much we valued her as an agent. She knew exactly what the market was like in our area and gave us great advice.

- PM Hermes

She was very friendly & understanding. Since it was a long distance transaction, we had full confidence in her ability to represent our interests and keeping us informed. She always returned our phone calls in a friendly and helpful manner. She went above what we were expecting of her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Very attentive to all our needs and questions. Totally satisfied. Not having sold property from long distance before, we were elated to have such a dedicated and capable person representing our interests.

- Mary Lou Bales

Connie - thank you for your care and comfort during this process.

- T. Johnson

Our search for a lake home extended into a third year. Erin stuck with us and was understanding of us needing to find the "just right" property. Her patience and professionalism were greatly appreciated.

- Becky Walen, Fargo ND

While the typical factors of selecting a real estate agent were all important, we selected Dan Ness mostly because of the person he is. For us, the main quality we look for is working with someone we can trust and who we know will do their job in a fair and honest way. Selling a home is not a stress free situation but Dan, without a doubt, is certainly the agent you can count on to make it a positive experience and to do the job right.

- Dustin & Renae Steenblock, Hoffman

When I decided to sell my property, I called Linnae to get her input. She promptly worked on a market analysis and got the process going.  Linnae is extremely organized and professional.  She handled everything and gave advice when needed.  The property sold the 2nd day it was on the market.  I was extremely pleased with the entire experience.  

- Carol Hanken

Century 21's sign stands out from the rest. Once we met Erin Olson we felt totally comfortable with her. Her knowledge in the real estate business was reassuring and her past sales. She and Connie both were a good fit personality wise. Erin was always available to answer questions and was always positive and upbeat. Just an easy going personality who knew what she was talking about. We were very pleased with the whole process.
We also dealt a little with Connie who along with Erin took the time to sit down and meet with us and see how things were going. Connie is also a wonderful agent to deal with. Would definitely use Erin Olson again.

- Melanie and Bob Plombon

"I was proud to work with Linnae Leary...she is top of the line if you ask me.  She went over and above what you might expect in some cases.  I am so grateful to her and her family." - Charlotte McKenna Crawford

- Charlotte McKenna

Amy knew exactly what we were looking for and helped us find our forever home. 

- -ta_bol

Upon meeting Donna for the first time, she immediately understood our situation and went to work--the house sold in 2 days! She did an amazing job and was always attentive and professional. I would recommend her highly, and in fact I already have several times.

- Bernice Melby/Pam Peake, Battle Lake, MN

Linnae met and exceeded my requirements for a real estate broker.  She was always accessible and gave an immediate response to all email and phone contacts from me.  Her opinion of the various properties that we viewed, prior to my final selection, was unbiased, informative, and gave me the confidence to make the final decision on the property I selected.  Her follow up continued with excellent suggestions for an inspector and list of contacts and recommendations for the Fergus Falls area of labor contractors to interview for needed work on the property.  Linnae is not only an excellent Realtor, but quite the emissary for the city of Fergus Falls in representing the quality and character of such a fine community.  

- Maura Morberg

Thank you for all of your help.  You are fun to work with and always go the extra mile for us!  We really appreciate all that you do for us.

- Kevin, Tammy, Kayleigh and Brady

We were happy when the sale was actually completed. I'm sure you folks had a few second thoughts along the way! Sorry I led you into such a difficult series of plan changes. I understand from son Douglas that you did a good job all the way.

- Dan and Nancy

Thank you so much for being such a great Realtor and friend to us since we purchased our lake home. You have made us feel so welcome in the community which means a lot. We enjoyed having you to our place and it was nice to hear your thoughts about the improvements we've made. To us, 107 Oak Avenue feels like h-o-m-e and we feel blessed that we have met more wonderful people like you because of it.

- Nancy, Robyn and Michaela

Donna did a great job for us. She kept us up to date on things and on some things went the extra mile to help us out to find a place to live and in selling our house. Would use Donna again in selling and in buying a house. She is very knowledgeable and explained all the Questions we asked. She did an excellent job for us. THANK YOU DONNA.

- Sandy Bauman, Underwood

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

I want to tell you that the Century 21 office which is near me did a great job of contacting and helping me sign and get the proper papers to you. No charge - just very helpful. Thanks for a good job.

- Doug and Bob

Marie Shores was exceptional. She truly went above and beyond her job to do what ever we needed. She made the process exciting and fun and she was never pushy. She only wanted what was best for our family and did more than her basic job duties. She had no problem faxing papers to our lender when she very well could have made us do it. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

- Tish Burslie, Evansville

Connie cares deeply about her clients and their lives, a trait that immediately gains trust and connects her with you and your family. Her proven experience both within the real estate business and across her storied career provides deep, rich perspective enabling creativity. Finally her balanced approach with a healthy competitive streak allows you to have confidence at the negotiation table. If you are looking for real estate in the Minnesota Lake Country or within the Phoenix market, put Connie Caspers at the top of your list.

- Leif Hemstad

Erin Olson & Connie Caspers.

I have to SHOUT OUT to the best two Realtors in the entire lakes region. They know how to make it happen from listing all the way through closing with confidence and professionalism!! Connie Caspers and Erin Olson are true winners. Thank you.  You promised to get it done by early October and you made it happen. Jan and I thank you so much.

- Larry and Jan Rau, Battle Lake MN on Blanch Lake

Adele did a great job in getting our property sold in a short time. It was very important that it was sold this year. The ad she did to show our lake cabin was a winner. Thanks to everyone who got our place sold this summer. Thanks again to Adele. Century 21 Vista has sold four of our cabins on Buchanan Lake in Ottertail, MN. What more can I say than.....thank you to everyone.

- J. & C. Winsperger

Connie Caspers was "hands-down" the best agent we have ever had!

- Kermit and Lori Nelson

Connie Caspers and the other professionals at Century 21 Vista could not have been more helpful than they were. As a result, I received a full price offer in a very short period of time. I especially appreciate the professional way they handled negotiations with the buyers. I could not be happier. Thanks Connie.

- Jon Sarff

We can't say enough how much we appreciate you and Judi throughout.  Your work last night is truly why this will become reality for us. 

- Steve Olson

We appreciated everything you did to help us purchase our property!

- Kelly Smith

Thank you Alan for your professional and thoroughly effective and accurate way of handling all this....Thanks again for going to bat for us---we do indeed appreciate your efforts in upholding the truth and integrity of purchase agreements.

- Chuck and Sally Evrist

Leslie Flugstad was an exceptional realtor to work with. She went above and beyond many times to try to help me purchase a new home.

- Carolyn Cadwell, Fergus Falls

Very knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful in seeing the transaction through closing. 

- James and Lois Kraemer

Alan and Judi were excellent.  Made me feel as though I was the only client they had.  Communication was great and they always kept me informed and up to speed. 

- Steve and Christine

Charlie has helped us purchase our last two homes and we plan to use him when we sell a home this summer. Both times he drove us around to numerous houses until we found the one that was right for us. We plan to use him again this summer when we sell one of our houses.

- Steve Hardyman, Clitherall, MN

Alan and Judy once again came through.  Easy to work with, knowledgeable and well networked!  Highly recommend. 

- Brad G, Ottertail Lake

The property was difficult to sell, but Donna never gave up. The sale itself was complicated, but again Donna didn't give up. She gave far more than she received for this transaction and did it graciously and professionally! Thanks Donna!!

- Dianne Burma Sioux Falls SD

We had an excellent experience working with Alan and Judi Olson! We have already referred them to several of our friends. They are attentive, caring, knowledgeable and so efficient - we feel fortunate to have them working for us! Great representatives for Century 21. 

- Tim and Roxanne Lotesness

Connie has extensive knowledge of the local real estate market. She is an excellent agent. I would highly recommend her.

- Kevin Battles

Charlie was great to work with and was very knowledgeable. He made my first home purchase a breeze and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

- Connor Aasness, Fergus Falls

Gay Folden made the arduous task of moving across the country enjoyable and easy. His outstanding knowledge of the area and his patient attention to all our needs made it possible to find our dream home very quickly, and thanks to his expert advice, we could close the deal efficiently and smoothly.

- Sigurd Grindheim, Fergus Falls

Brian Kneisl was very professional, knowledgeable and most important he was very timely with communications. He spent a lot of time working to find us the perfect house and I could not be happier with his efforts.

- T. Mack, Perham

Deb was excellent to work with!  She really advocated for us as buyers and truly listened to our wants and needs to find us the absolute PERFECT home!  This was our third time buying a home and Deb surpassed our expectations at every turn!

- Jeney & Brian Christensen, Fergus Falls

Donna is great.  Had an offer in 2 days from a listing. 

- Nick, Ashby

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

Charlie is a great guy to work with. He helped us buy a home that would be temporary, but we didn't know for how long. He then helped us find a lake home. That took many outings, contacts, research and he handled any questions we had on the property. He then handled the sale of the first house we'd bought. Charlie will go out of his way to help you find the house you want. If the need arises, we'll contact him again.

- Kathy & Steve Hardyman

Gay did a great job for us. He quickly found homes for us to look at and helped us through the whole process in a very professional way. I like the experience he brings and felt like we could totally trust him. We were very thankful for his help!

- Lynette Tonneson, Fergus Falls

I cannot speak highly enough of Leslie. This was my first home purchase and Leslie made the process so easy. She was upfront and honest about everything and gave her opinions on the houses we looked at. She knew the Fergus market like the back of her hand so she could tell us what neighborhoods were good and which ones weren't the greatest. From looking at houses all the way to the closing date (and even after) Leslie was helping every step of the way with anything I needed. Her customer satisfaction is seriously her top priority and she definitely proved that.

- Trisha Illies, Elizabeth MN

We're kicking around some thoughts of our own regarding a possible change mid-year next year...you will still be selling we trust. You are still very much our real-estate people and we plan to work with you should we need to sell here and replace our home. We love and miss you both.

- Sally Evrist

Alan Olson sold a house we had listed previously and I was very impressed with how quickly it sold. I couldn't ask for a better experience. Everything went very smoothly. Judi Olson and Tamara were both wonderful to work with. They are extremely efficient, polite and respectful. All of my questions and concerns were handled promptly and expertly.

- Gina Ellingson, Henning

My husband and I have to thank Connie for her hard work and professionalism in making our retirement dream home a reality. 

- Les and Nancy Brennan

We want to thank you for all the hard work you did on helping us with the purchase of our first Lake Cabin"! We are excited to be in, and even the cleaning was kind of fun in a new place! Just as we thought, our little one enjoyed the tree swing and swing set with many giggles as she was having fun! We are looking forward to many warm days at the lake in the time to come, and thank you so much for making this a great experience for us!

- Jill and Jeremie

Donna has more experience selling homes than anyone I know. She is easy to work with, understanding and just an overall good person. I have purchased and sold multiple home during the 4 years that I have know Donna. The first time we looked at homes with her, we looked at more than 50 homes and the one that we purchased was NOT even a home that I wanted to look at! Donna is so easy to work with!! She is always up to "go with the flow". She doesn't judge (I have run many crazy ideas past her). Donna has done this for a few years, she knows what it takes to sell a home and to help buyers purchase a home. She is one of the best at what she does and I would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home!

- Shane and Holly

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

Amy made the whole process very easy and painless. She kept in contact and ensured a smooth closing.

- Bryce Anderson Erhard, MN

Great experience working with Lyn.

- Kevin and Holly Froemming

We think you handled our sale in the utmost professional way and we will recommend you to everyone in our future. 

- The Doric Family

Amy is a great Realtor. She knew about every aspect of selling my cabin. I trusted what she told me and her advise was always "right on". Amy knew about the area where I lived as well as specifics about the lake where my cabin was located. She always communicated with me and shared her thoughts about every aspect of selling my cabin. I am very pleased with the work Amy did on my behalf. I would highly recommend Amy as a Realtor.

- Michael Fitzgerald

Leslie is so easy to work with and she understood what I was looking for. She is also very caring and wants the house to be the right one to fit my needs. Leslie took into consideration my starting point for making the purchase offer, and it turned out to be very realistic. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. I wanted a friend from Perham to do the inspection and he is who we used. I was very satisfied with his inspection and good comments on how well the house was built. It felt good to have her at the closing, and I know I can call her if there is something she could advise me on. Leslie is awesome--her personality and professionalism make her stand out among other realtors I have worked with in the last few years.

- Joyce Bunnell, 105 Lydia Lane, Fergus Falls, MN

We already knew Dan Ness from dealings we had with him in his other business prior to his entering the real estate sales field.  We knew him to be personable and honest in those dealings and thought he would bring those attributes to the sale of our property.  When we told our neighbors who we had hired to sell our place, they all said that we had made a good choice, as it turned out, we had.  Dan worked hard and smart to sell our place for us.  He was available by phone and in person any time we needed him.  Working with Dan Ness was an altogether pleasant and rewarding experience! We would recommend using Dan Ness as a Realtor to anyone else in the area who may be thinking of buying or selling. 

- Chelsy Moe

I have found Connie to be delight to work with. Her professionalism is beyond reproach. Her commitment to the industry of real estate by sharing with her clients the knowledge she has gained is just what the customer is looking for.

- Jim Espeland

Done moving and selling. Alan and Judi Olson were great. Very professional and effective. House on market since July 21, 2010 with no action with other realtor. Alan and Judi took over in mid April, 2012 and had the house sold in one month. Thank you so much.

- Don and Dell Perry

Alan Olson does an ongoing, excellent job of keeping us up to date on everything and efficiently staying in touch. He takes care of the many ongoing details required for an effective sale.

- Marcy, Seller

Dan is a great guy who is knowledgeable and helpful in my home buying experience!

- Brian, Henning MN

Positive past experiences. Very professional and interested in the seller's needs.

- Clayton Swanson, Alexandria

Our family cabin is now officially SOLD! HUGE THANK YOU to Connie Ihry Caspers and Erin Olson from Century 21 Vista for their hard work. When you have to deal with 6 family members.....let's just say we had tons of emails and text messages the past couple of months.

- The Haberman Family

Alan does an excellent job!  Highly recommend. 

- Troy and Danza Johnsrud

Linnae was wonderful to work with.  Her wisdom of the community and the energy she had to show and sell our house was fabulous.  She was easy to communicate with and she actually listened.  She was prompt in returning answers to our questions via text, emails and phone calls.  She was willing to go the extra mile in whatever needed to be done.  She had an appreciation for the work we had done on our home we were selling, and she relayed that to interested buyers.  She also was willing to give an open house, which we appreciated very much.  If a buyer had an issue with a portion of the house, Linnae would offer up suggestions and alternatives in which they could improve the home and make it livable according to their wants and needs.

- Vera Carlson

She is amazing on all levels.

- Liza Marie

Alan has spent his life in the local real estate business.  That experience provides a unique insight that can be used to his client's advantage.  We relied on that experience and insight to successfully sell our hunting land, rural real estate, lake lots and our home.  To top it off, Alan and Judi found us the perfect replacement home.

- Bob Reutter, Star Lake, Dent MN

We had not been through a home search before and Lyn Bjorgaard walked us through the process and understood what we were looking for. When the right home came on the market, she was on top of it and we were able to purchase the property.

- Monty Wiertzema, Fergus Falls

We knew Alan & Judi Olson before when we purchased the property-they did a great job. So we knew they would do a great job on selling it too. I'd recommend them to anyone!

- Nathan Vander Velde

Katrina was totally awesome with our purchase. She had local contacts who were extremely helpful and able to meet with us in a short time frame. She was honest about negotiating the price and terms of the purchase and helped us get a great deal. During our final walk through she paid major attention to detail and even helped us remember things we had forgotten to ask! She was a real asset to us during our home purchasing experience and we are so thankful we were matched up with her. 

Katrina exceeded our expectations in all of these areas! Dealing with a long distance relocation we relied on her heavily for a lot of things. Her communications were always clear and timely, and she was flexible with our 6 hour time difference. During our house search she was extremely patient with us while we determined which house to purchase and she was EXCEPTIONAL with our children. She even went out of her way to provide a "stay busy" kit for them to use while we were looking at houses. I would recommend Katrina to any of my friends or family!

- Eric & Jenn Whitted

Connie Caspers and the other professionals at Century 21 Vista could not have been more helpful than they were.  As a result, I received a full price offer in a very short period of time.  I especially appreciate the professional way they handled negotiations with the buyers.  I could not be happier.  Thanks Connie.

- Steve and Margo Liberda

Katrina Johnson was very helpful.

- Marlene Wilde

Our St. Paul Realtor found Marie when she was calling to alert other area Realtors about the sale of my mother's home. Our realtor eventually changed brokers and we stayed with Marie as she knew the area and worked hard to bring people through the house--which was a first. We had previously listed the house with a realtor from Elbow Lake and one from Alexandria. We had NO showings at all. Marie made sure area realtors knew of the property, looked at it themselves and remembered it when they had buyers.

- Kathryn Watkins, St. Paul

Melissa came to me with a buyer prior to our home being on the market.

- Tim & Jennifer Fergus Falls, MN

Leslie consistently exceeded our expectations! Her professionalism, attention to detail, and dedication were invaluable. I could not imagine using any other realtor.

- GH, Fergus Falls

Gay Folden sold our home within the first three weeks that it was advertised. I recommend Gay to our friends who are looking to purchase a home or have one to sell.

- Harry Olson

Charlie was very patient with us as we were first time home buyers and using a VA loan. We didn't know it at the time, but VA loans, while worth the trouble, can be a bit of a pain, and Charlie walked us through every step and made sure we understood what was next. We hope to someday be able to buy a vacation home, and Charlie is our guy.

- Johnathan Berry, Fergus Falls

Donna did a great job for us.

- DuWayne and Sandy Bauman

Charlie Brue was way beyond helpful with the purchase of our house.  His knowledge of the Fergus Falls area and contractors in the area was a bonus.  He was very prompt and clear in his communication and was always available for questions and giving us access for inspections. He was through with paperwork and offering a last minute walk through before closing.  I would certainly contact Charlie in the future for any property buying or selling activity. 

- Carlene C

Alan and Judi were both wonderful to work with. 

- Greg J.

Amy was had a friendly and honest personality. She responded to questions immediately allowing us to feel connected all the time even though we lived away from Fergus Falls. I would recommend Amy to any seller or buyer!

- Molly Johnson

When contacted about a property Donna was quick to find the answer to my questions and after some consultation came up with a better selection of properties of which I bought one. Donna was available to us at all times. When we contacted her after hours with a question she was usually able to help us. I was thrilled to finally find the retirement home I had been shopping for. Donna was extremely personable and I look forward to living in her neighborhood.

- Peg Perman Streeter, ND

We are cabin owners!! Many many thanks to you for all your help with finding and purchasing a lake cabin for our family. We are grateful for your expertise and friendship! You are stellar at what you do!

- D. & C. Barnes

Thank you so much for doing such a great job of selling and closing our home on Pickerel Lake.  You certainly know how to get the job done!

- Wes and Inez Madson

It was a pleasure working with Judi and Alan through the process.  Thank you for al the time your invested in trying to find us a home. 

- Dan and Trisha Reed

I loved working with Connie!!  It was a great experience...she always made me feel comfortable and in control of our meetings.  Very knowledgeable and never pushy.  She has a great personality and I can tell she loves what she does!

- Vicki Yaggie

Thank you so much for your help.  You really don't charge enough for the miracles you do.

- Jerry

Connie is a wonderful person to work with! Not only does she do her best to help you with her properties, she's also a great listener.......and will become someone you call friend. She's personable and an expert in the industry. I worked with her in 2011 and I am working with her again.

- Anna Schuler

Connie was fantastic!  She was so helpful in all areas, prompt in her communications with us and most of all, so very knowledgeable in the field of real estate.  It was a wonderful experience working with her.  We won't hesitate referring our friends to her should they have the need!  Thanks Connie.

- Lana and Tom Blair, Rush Lake

Charlie Brue reached out to me when I requested to view a residence that was listed with Century 21. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and just a really nice guy. I would rate his performance a 10 out of 10. I couldn't have asked for a better house buying experience. Thanks, Charlie!

- Terri K

Alan and his wife Judi provided a comfort level I hadn't experienced with other brokers.  That was a deciding factor for me. His team was wonderful. Judi helped us tremendously from the beginning and Alan was great at closing the deal by providing sound guidance. Fantastic team - especially the office staff at Battle Lake and their willingness to remain open after hours to accommodate my schedule. Judi was an absolute joy to work with as well.

- Joel Smith

We are so thankful that both of you were the ones to hold our hands through this intense (most of the time) process. You are amazing realtors with integrity, patience and promptness. There are so many reasons that Joel enjoyed your professionalism and many more WHY I did! Our family is very excited to enjoy our very own Otter Tail Lake cabin with family and friends for years to come!

- Joel and Tami

I just wanted to send you a little note to thank you so much for helping our son, Ben, find a home he was comfortable buying and working with him in a timely manner as homes came up for sale. My husband and I were grateful that you watched out for him and guided him in a positive direction. We were grateful that sometimes you suggested it might be better to pass by a given property in lieu of something that would be a better fit for him. In the end, the home he ended up with, I think he is very happy with and that is important. So again, I want to thank you for the nice job you did working with him and helping us all feel good about a home for him. You are an awesome, honest person.  Thank you. 

- Darlene and Earl Felling

We so appreciate her expertise and the quick sale of our property. She did an awesome job.

- Jim Knoll

Charlie did a fine job. We were kept up to date on progress. Everything went smoothly, from the first meeting through closing. Would use him again without hesitation.

- Ken and Norma Peeders

I will recommend Marie shores to any of my friends or family. She took a very serious interest in what my concerns were in selling my property and what we wanted and needed to get us into another property. She went above and beyond to market our property to different kinds of markets. She did not try to push us into anything we could not afford or where we did not want to be located to. Marie became a friend.

- Kelly Smith, Evansville, MN

Connie was fantastic!  She was so helpful in all areas, prompt in her communications with us and most of all, so very knowledgeable in the field of real estate.  It was a wonderful experience working with her.  We won't hesitate referring our friends to her should they have the need!  Thanks Connie.

- Paul and Sibyl Jacklitch, Rush Lake

Adele was great; she worked hard at finding us the right property.  She was always willing to work around our schedules and always got back to us right away.  When it came to signing a contract she paid attention to the details and explained things well.  Adele was always looking out for our best interest.  She never tried pushing us into a property we weren't sure of.  Her ultimate goal was to find the property in our price range and we would be happy with.  I would strongly recommend Adele.

- P. Wilhelmi

Amy Cranston-Nathe was simply sensational. She effortlessly organized our home purchase despite having to manage a buyer and seller in two different countries, with a major time zone difference. She nailed down every detail, and completed the entire transaction with the ease of a mature professional.

- Dr. Jennifer Westrup, Dublin IRELAND

Erin helped us sell 2 different properties. Erin was friendly and respectful. She was always timely with communicating with us. It was a pleasure working with her.

- Karen, Otter Tail

Lyn is the remarkable difference between an agent - and a professional who knows their stuff.  I don't like to compare but I DO know when I see quality in service, recommendations, product knowledge, strategic savvy, honesty and integrity.  Beyond these attributes, Lyn actually cares about her clients.  They can't teach this in a book.  You either have it or you don't because you cannot fake genuine care and concern.  Not only is Lyn an outstanding realtor, she's an amazing human being.  The kind of person you always want to have watching your back.  I could go on, but needless to say, I asked her for several of her business cards and I can guarantee I will pass them all out and ask for more.  Because this is what you do when you are treated this well.  Thank you Lyn for not only helping us find our home, but making me feel welcome in a new area.  Hopefully we will grow together and become good friends. 

- Kari and Robert Berger, Fergus Falls MN

The Olson's work in tandem as an exemplary team of whose people skills and business ethics have no match in our area.

- Jayce Vangrud

Thank you, we never would be able to do this without the attention and caring service of your company. 

- Carla and Cheryl

Charlie Brue was listing a property that we saw when driving by. Even though that property was already "gone," Charlie took the time to meet with us, ask what we were looking for, and then set up notification emails so we received properties via email. He was consistently on the lookout for us without being overbearing. Hands down, Charlie is an amazing guy and it showed right from the start. Charlie was so accommodating when we were slowly plodding through the scant listings of springtime. Then when that hot property came up, he was ready to jump on it. He has the patience and perseverance to push through the slow times as well as the agility and savvy to move very, very quickly to help us nab a great home at a time when competition was fierce.

We are loving our new place at the lake! Everyone who's visited us loves the quiet, the view, etc. too! We are very, very happy with it! If everyone provided customer service like you all at Century 21 Vista, this world would be a wonderful place!

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!

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!

Erin was an excellent realtor for us. She was very patient with us and showed us a variety of properties when we were searching for just the right second home. (We were selling our lake home that our family had outgrown and trying to find another one that was even more private.) She also cheered us on while we completed the projects that needed to done before closing on the sale of our property. Erin never lost her positive attitude and was always fun to work with. She kept our goals in mind and offered sound advice when asked. Erin Olson and Connie Caspers make a great team. We would highly recommend both of them.

Deb was very easy to work with. She was friendly and made everyone feel comfortable for the very beginning. I really enjoyed working with her and her concern for our family to find the perfect home.

- Kelly R.

Leslie, there is no way we can thank you enough for your tireless efforts to help us sell our house in a depressed market and move into our dream home. Even in the face of obstacles, you made sure everything came together for us. Clearly, being a realtor is much more than a job to you, and it shows!

- Saul and Mary Kay

I actually had found this home for sale on line. Brian's name popped up with it. He contacted me and the rest is history. :) Brian was very helpful and his knowledge of the lake areas was very good.

- Cindy, Minnesota

I could only say he made all of us feel comfortable and when there arose some disagreements with the loan people, he was always by our side helping me out.

- Sharon Rittenour, Fergus Falls

My husband and I have to thank Connie for her hard work and professionalism in making our retirement dream home a realty! They walked us through the purchase process every step of the way and they worked around several obstacles on our behalf. We would recommend this team to anyone looking for property in west central Minnesota.

We have purchased two properties with the help of Melissa in the past two and one half years. Melissa has been wonderful to work with--professional, knowledgeable, and a great communicator. We definitely will continue working with Melissa on our real estate needs moving forward. She is an tremendous asset to the local C21 office!

Adele Butenas can help you make your dreams come true! A true professional in every aspect. She takes the time to make sure you understand the steps while making things happen with little to no stress in the search. She listens and understands what you want and goes out of her way to get you to where you want to be. Adele did a lot of work behind the scenes but gave us excellent feedback all along the way. She took the journey with us! She went over the speed bumps with us and eventually we traveled smooth roads! She tells it like it is, putting sugarcoating on it when it was appropriate for sugarcoating! Patience of a saint!! We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for the particular home but has not found it. She can get you there! We are now proud lake residents in Battle Lake, MN!

Leslie was excellent to work with. I am very happy with the speed and results of our sale. Leslie understood my needs and dealt with issues in front of her. She was nice, professional, and understanding. Very knowledgeable in her business. Thank You to her. 

- Rich Berg, Big Lake

After contacting Alan and Judi Olson to determine availability of lakefront residences in the Central Lakes region of Minnesota, my wife and I were very impressed with their immediate and professional response to our request. Our criteria for a new home were very specific and somewhat unique and although such property was limited, Judi worked tirelessly for over a year to help us achieve our goal. During this time Alan provided advice and recommendations based on his years of experience in the field of Real Estate and ultimately the Olson's enables us to purchase a home which perfectly suits our needs.

Katrina did an excellent job for me. She pointed out details and technical issues I might not have known to look for. I knew she was looking out for my interests and I trusted her completely!

- Tammy R., Fergus Falls

Amy did an excellent job as my agent. She is very thorough and detail-oriented and communicates well and in a prompt manner. I would definitely use her again.

- Kathy, Fergus Falls, MN

Was told Century 21 was the way to go! Dan Ness is the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is genuine, caring and helped us remain calm and positive through the process. Truly felt he cared about our happiness and not just money. That is the best feeling. Great! No complaints. WE GOT OUR DREAM HOME !!!!!

- David Thoen & Carin Nielson, Fergus Falls

Lyn was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process! I will recommend her to everyone I know! She is professional, kind, caring, hard working and will not stop until you are pleased! She is the whole package for a realtor and more!! Lynette Bjorgaard is the way to go if you are looking at buying or selling a home!! She is phenomenal!! 10/10!! 5 stars!!

- Carissa, Erhard

Katrina was trustworthy and personable! I couldn't have had a better agent!

- Misty Bjerken, Fergus Falls MN

Amy was absolutely amazing to work with! She had a professional photographer take photos of our home and she knew exactly where to price our home so that it would sell quickly. She made the process nearly effortless for us and if we ever sell/buy a home again we will definitely use her!!

- RJ Andrews

This was my first time buying a home and I didn't know what to expect. Brian answered all questions, was very patient, and made things go a lot more smoothly than I expected the home buying process to be.

- Melody Rasmussen, Henning

Charlie was just great. I walked into this not having a clue what steps to take or a knowledgeable person that could offer me solid advice. Charlie did everything he could to make sure I understood all aspects of the process and helped me along with tips and suggestions when I needed them.

- Chad Christenson, Fergus Falls

Donna Grover did an excellent job of selling my property. I would recommend her to anyone.
