What my clients say...

If you're looking to sell your house for the most money in the least amount of time, listen to Glen. He was spot on with regard to my property (beach property) that was not so easy to sell during the winter months. He negotiated the offer considerably higher even when we thought there was no more  to be had. I'm glad to have chosen Glen to sell our family-owned property and would recommend him to anyone looking for a consummate professional.

Response from Glen Hagen on 06/22/2019

Thank you Kristen for taking the time to write the kind review. I was happy to get you well above ask price with 6 offers from which to choose that was actually the goal from day 1. I'm glad you listened to me and trusted the strategy to net you the most in the least time. Your property was in full contract in only 14 days! I wish you the best in your new location and trust you know who to call if you want to buy or sell real estate!

 

Glen Hagen is an outstanding real estate agent. He efficiently guided our family through the nuts and bolts of selling the home of our late mother. His expertise and familiarity with the local market were instrumental, especially since neither my brother nor I no longer lived in the area. We  were dependent on and very satisfied with his focused attention to the property. He seamlessly coordinated with the necessary persons for inspection and any repairs needed. After the closing, he continued to make himself available to us for final details and questions. We most highly recommend him.
