My husband and I moved out of our previous twin home into a new twin home at the end of March 2009. The twin home was listed with another realtor at that time. Not only did that realtor not work to sell our home, he never even bothered to send our copy of the contract we signed with him.

In mid October on a Monday, we received a call from Rob Monson, of ReMax Results, where he informed us that our twin home had been off the market for two weeks. The previous realtor had not contacted us at all for over two months, so we were unaware that it was off the market. 

We set up a meeting with Rob Monson for the next day & at that time signed w ReMax Results. On Wed he sent his professional photographer to take pictures of the home for the web virtual tour. On Thursday a For Sale sign had been placed on the lawn and the house pictures were on the web. The pictures were awesome. On Friday they have a first showing followed by a couple more showings that first weekend. By the following Monday, one week after that introductory call, we already had an offer & the person buying wanted to close on Nov 20th, which would have been 30 days after ReMax Results had put the house on the market.

Needless to say, we were very pleased that Rob had taken the initiative to contact us. We will definitely refer others to ReMax Results, the service & communication with them was excellent.

History:

The Village of Golden Valley was incorporated Dec 16, 1886. During its early years, Golden Valley was an agricultural community of only a few hundred residents, full of farms, mills, and dairies. Residential development began after the Electric Luce Line Railroad was cut through the village in 1912.

 

Between 1910 and 1940, Golden Valley's population increased from 692 to 2,040. More residential development followed industry's discovery of Golden Valley after World War II, and the village continued to grow. It became a city in 1972.

Golden Valley's proximity to downtown Minneapolis and its access to four major arterial roadways make it a prime commercial and industrial location. In fact, there are about 30,000 full-time jobs within the city—more per capita than any other city in the metropolitan area. Golden Valley is home to several large corporations, including Pentair, Honeywell, and General Mills. These corporations account for a large percentage of Golden Valley’s job base.
