"Mike's knowledge of the market was evident during our very first conversation. He gave guidance and counsel. He listened and gave insights into how we could meet our timeline. Best of all he was always upbeat, positive and had recommendations with every question. I have recommended him to our neighbors and friends. Call Mike! You'll be glad you did!"
"We could not have been happier with Mr. Larsen's handling of the sale of our family home of 21 years. As difficult as it was to set aside our "opinions" regarding the value of our home relative to market conditions, we did and it paid off. Our home was on the market for 2 days and sold well above ask- far above what we felt was attainable. There is no question in our minds; we made the correct choice when we decided to work with Gregg."
"We used Gregg to sell our Lake Minnetonka home in February 2021. He was nothing short of amazing! We wanted to wait until Spring to put the house on the market, figuring that Spring was the best time to showcase a lake house. But Gregg convinced us to put it on the market immediately. He knew the market. He knew inventory of homes in our selling price range was extremely low. He knew that if the house went on the market immediately it would sell fast. He was right!! The first two days we had 19 showings and five offers. We had another 25 showings over the next three days that we cancelled. It sold for $45,000 over asking price, all cash, no contingencies. One of the things that sets Gregg apart is the amount of work he puts into getting great photos. We won’t give away any of his secrets, but his photos sold the house many times over! His local knowledge of the lake was invaluable and his selling strategies were right on. Gregg was great to work with. He listened. He advised. He communicated. He followed-up. It’s clear why he’s one, if not THE best, realtors selling Lake Minnetonka. We would use him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Gregg!"
"Tremendous expertise and experience. Gregg knew the market, specifics details regarding the areas we searched and, was very effective with our time. Would gladly refer others to him."
"Gregg did a great job selling our home. When we first met to discuss marketing plans, Gregg offered several suggestions which turned out to be crucial to our success. We received our full price and had an easy close. Gregg knows the Minnetonka Lakes area very well. It's definitely worth your time to talk with Gregg if your are in the market."
"I've followed local real estate in the Lake Minnetonka area my whole life and seen many realtor names come and go. Gregg Larsen's name was always present on the local scene and we knew if we ever made a move he would be our go to guy. It was Gregg's reputation that made a seller agree to accept our offer on a new home on :"contingency", and when it came to selling our home Gregg's timing and strategy resulted in 5 offers in 2 days all over asking price. We could not have been more pleased, great guy and great professional person to deal with. Experience matters."
"Mike was Great! Found the perfect home for me. He is a kind person motivated by how important decisions like these can be to someone. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone in need of an honest and reliable realtor."
"I was referred to Mike through colleagues with very positive feedback from their recent home purchases through Mike. Thank goodness we found Mike - He is an absolute joy to work with. His energy, attitude, advice, and expertise were the difference makers for us. We looked at countless homes and ultimately he found us a Non-MLS listing that was perfect and would certainly have been difficult to negotiate if it had been officially listed. Without Mike's connections and knowledge of the market, it would never had happened. We moved from overseas and his preparation for our multiple visits were perfectly orchestrated from the moment we landed at MSP. I will refer all my friends and colleagues to Mike and will definitely use him if we ever have to move again. A+ rating."
"We were happy to work with Mike to sell our home. We originally purchased the home in 2003. At that time Mike was our agent. He is very knowledgeable in regards to market conditions, pricing and staging. We sold our home above asking price and Mike got us into a new home that we love!"
"Gregg represented us with professionalism, enthusiasm, and understood all our needs and wants. He kept us informed throughout the process. The photos and virtual tour were professionally done as were the brochures. Gregg is a class act. If you have a house he will not disappoint."
"From start to finish, Gregg did a fantastic job selling our house. He was extremely attentive to details, scheduling water test, radon test, staging, carpet selection and installation, and work orders. He was very knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and positive. Handling everything so we could focus on packing! Best part is our house sold in 1 day!"
"Gregg is a great realtor to work with. He is responsive and thorough. He made a normally stressful situation of buying and selling a house very smooth. We would highly recommend him."
"Very professional and knowledgeable of Twin Cities real estate. Gregg was able to generate several qualified buyers and we were able to sell quickly at the price we were looking for. I would definitely recommend Gregg for any of your real estate needs."
"Gregg represented both myself and the seller in our transaction. His demeanor and approach was very helpful. His knowledge of the lake is superb. He was incredibly responsive to any needs/questions we had."
"Gregg is a respectful and dedicated realtor. His responsive and thorough communications were exactly what we hope for in any professional sales opportunity. He sold our home quickly with every detail covered and no issues. Thank you, Gregg. We will certainly recommend Gregg to friends and family."
"Gregg was extremely knowledgeable of and experienced with real estate values for properties on or near Lake Minnetonka. He suggested a list price for our home that was higher than the estimates provided by two other agents we interviewed. We selected Gregg because he was confident, he could secure that price for us, and he had the sales data to back up his claim. He found a buyer before our home was listed by mentioning our property to his colleagues. His networking paid off immediately. One of them showed our property to an interested party. They made a full price offer the next day. No open houses, no multiple showings. The process was fast, efficient and worry-free. Bonus - he negotiated a fair price on our preferred replacement home, as well. As a result, it's easy for me to recommend Gregg."
"Gregg did a great job as our agent on both sides, buying and selling our homes. He was very knowledgeable about the lake property we were interested in and was extremely patient as we toured many homes. His advice and expertise on the final transactions for both homes was extremely important and we feel we got excellent results overall. There is no doubt we would use Gregg again if we needed help buying or selling a home."
"Mike is very familiar with and knows the local market. He listened and understood what we were looking for. The house he found for us checked every single box (which is rare). He is also calm and reasonable (real estate can be very emotional)."
"We had a great experience with Gregg. He was very helpful in preparing our home for sale and was able to get us a full price offer and a quick closing. He made the process very easy and stress free. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Gregg again or refer a close friend or family member."
"Mike Rosolanka is superior, and I have already recommended him highly to several individuals. Mike has a well-designed process to give the buyer a comprehensive spectrum of properties to critically evaluate key aspects of your (the buyers) priorities in an efficient and well executed way. Outside of his process, he had detailed knowledge of the particular area I was focused on which was extremely beneficial in my purchase."
"Working with Gregg to buy a home and to sell our hobby farm was a very good experience. He is professional, very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the area, flexible in responding to our unique needs especially in the sale process, friendly and easy to work with, and very responsive to any questions/concerns that we had. We would definitely use him again for any future real estate needs and will refer others to him. He made the process as easy and seamless as it could possibly be."
"Mike was fantastic to work with. He priced my townhouse aggressively then convinced me to hold the price when I thought we should lower it. Just days later we had nearly a full price offer and I got more than I was expecting. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and a good negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home."
"This is our 4th transaction with Gregg. We sold our home in Mound in 2018 with Gregg, bought a new home in Independence, sold that one this year and bought another in Orono. He has helped us through all of these with tremendous patience and understanding. (We are kind of in pain! Ha!) He is calm, has a wealth of knowledge and has an endless network of referrals for all things that go along with buying, selling, remodeling, repairs, electrical, plumbing, flooring, wells, etc. He’s a one stop shop! He is from the Lake Minnetonka area, is well known & respected as a market expert and has been in the industry for over 25 years. Because of all this and all his connections, he is able to network his listings so that they only stay on the market a short amount of time and other agents refer buyers to him who are looking to purchase a home in this area! All of the above, is what will keep us coming back and why we would refer him to others. Buying and selling a home is a very stressful process and any ordinary agent can help with the buying and selling part. But only an extraordinary realtor like Gregg Larsen can help reduce that stress by providing these additional resource referrals. I would highly recommend Gregg Larsen for your next home sale or purchase!"
"We worked with Mike for almost 2 years before we finally closed on our “dream home.” We would definitely use Mike again and would highly recommend him to others. He gets what you want and works very hard to find that “right” home for you!"
"Gregg was professional and trustworthy. He was very knowledgeable and prompt in responding to calls and questions. He walked us through the entire process with great detail. It was a pleasure working with Gregg and we would highly recommend him for anyone looking to sell or buy a home."
"Mike did a fantastic job of understanding our sales situation, acted both wisely and with a very timely response to sell our home at an acceptable price so as not burdened us financially with a change of home location. We highly recommend Mike for any real estate needs!"
"Gregg did an outstanding job for us in the recent sale of our vacation home and was a delight to work with. He listened to our ideas and our goals and incorporated them into the sales process. His experience and integrity enabled us to determine a fair price, how best to prepare the house for sale, and the most effective method to market the home. Our house was in excellent condition but required a few cosmetic and other enhancements to maximize its appeal. Gregg’s network of contractors responded quickly and did very good work to complete these improvements. Gregg has outstanding communications skills, keeping us informed every step of the way and always responding immediately to any questions we have. Last, but not least, Gregg’s long list of satisfied clients and associated realtors made for a quick sales process. We would definitely recommend Gregg to anyone looking for a first-class real estate agent."
"I stumbled across Mr. Rosolanka while looking for a rental property when my wife and I moved to the Twin Cities for a career relocation. He had a property for sale I was interested in and I inquired about renting it. In the end the rental property didn’t work out, but I saw the great lengths that Mike went to for his clients and knew he was someone I wanted to work with when it came time to buy our home. Fast forward nine months later and our family is expanding which made the decision to set down some roots that much easier. A quick phone call to Mike and the search was on. He met us at our favorite coffee shop, we discussed what we were looking for, and NOT looking for, and we set up a few tours. Mike does an excellent job of setting expectations; he is a family man first and foremost and I respect his care for a healthy work/life balance. It comes across in all that he does, not having to work, but I believe he truly enjoys helping people find their nest. He will push your thoughts and preconceived notions on different areas of the cities and challenge you to explore your boundaries. He deeply understands the nuances of the Twin Cities and we actually ended up in an area outside of our initial desired search; we love it. Mike has patience, and patience my friend, is a virtue lost upon many these days. I can’t recommend Mike highly enough; I only wish we knew more people in the cities to send his way. If you’re looking for a realtor, look no further, have a conversation with Mike and you will find your home."
"Gregg took all the worry out of selling our home and purchasing another. He is very knowledgeable of markets, efficient, and very personable to work with. Our home sold in 7 days because his market analysis was right on!"
"We got to know Mike through my friend, a previous client of Mike as well. Mike has a broad range of knowledge on both house and house market. He is also very friendly, patient (never pushes us) and professional. He also educated us a lot about house maintenance and tricks to spotting hidden issues when looking at houses older than 10 years. He is also very good at negotiation and can even manage to let the seller give us the rainbow swing set. All in all, it was a great buying experience and we’re very happy with our house. We would recommend Mike to our friends and anyone looking for a new home."
"My wife and I wanted to find a realtor with proven experience and success at selling homes in our area. The house next to ours had been sold by Gregg Larson and our neighbors on the other side highly recommended Gregg as well. He turned out to be the perfect choice. Our initial meetings with him were very informative, he was well prepared and provided us with great information concerning sales in our area, what house buyers were looking for and the price range homes like ours were selling for. When Gregg listed our house and it hit the market, he hit the nail on the head. The photographs taken of our home, exterior and interior were “top drawer” and showed our home and all it had to offer in the best light. His support staff are as professional as he is and treated us as if we were the only sellers he had. The associate that directed the open house left us a wonderful note offering details of those who attended: how many and what many of their comments and feedback was. Our house was listed on March 1st, 2019. By March 16th we had two solid offers. This resulted in a sale at an amount we were VERY satisfied with. We can’t say enough about Gregg and his attention to detail, personalized service, focus on us and our needs. We found a new friend!"
"Mike is the only realtor that I have ever recommended to someone. His negotiating skills blew me away. He got us the riding mower included in our deal."
"We just wrapped up our house sale and had a very productive relationship with Gregg. We had so many things to handle on our end, it was a relief to hand the house sale over to him. Gregg’s marketing material and pictures were very professional and impactful. The process was smooth and well handled. Very pleased with Gregg’s service and would use again if we come back to the area."
"Mike is a consummate pro and he builds an immediate rapport with clients establishing a solid trust level. He identifies your specific needs, wants, and desires to create a clear picture on finding the perfect home. We were not the easiest of clients, but Mike delivered time and time again."
"Gregg is extremely responsive. He has a great understanding of the local market, which is invaluable in pricing, listing, and showing my home. He listens to my needs in home buying as to focus on appropriate listings and showings."
"Mike is an exceptional realtor, always keeping your needs in mind first. He has creative solutions to challenges and is a very strategic thinker. I have used Mike in two different home sales and purchases and could not have been happier. He is honest, straight forward, a great negotiator, makes sure all the i’s are dotted and is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet."
"Gregg Larsen is the go-to guy for anyone considering buying or selling a home in the west metro. He’s knowledgeable, resourceful, really knows the market, and an absolute pleasure to work with. He provided invaluable strategic counsel on how to sell our house, from insightful staging suggestions to realistic pricing advice. The marketing materials he created for our house made it look spectacular. And talk about results, we had an excellent offer within 24 hours of going on the market! "
"Mike was a pleasure to work with. We were relocating to the Minneapolis area and he was very patient in showing us all the different neighborhoods. He was very knowledgeable of the market and would point out things that could potentially adversely affect us. In the end, we bought a house that Mike showed us despite us having eliminated it. I would definitely recommend him!"
"Gregg Larsen was delightful to work with. He came highly recommended by a friend, and I found him to be professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. After walking through and assessing my home with me, Gregg gave me thoughtful feedback on improvements that could be made, based on my budget and his market knowledge. He had reliable resources to help with new carpet, wood floor refinishing, cement work, and other improvements. All work was done promptly and within budget. Gregg was always available to answer questions, update me on the status of work being done, and move the process along quickly. His attention to detail and knowledge as a realtor secured a quick sale of my home at a great price. I highly recommend Gregg to sell anyone’s home."
"Gregg is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in selling lakeshore properties, the Lake Minnetonka community, and meeting the needs of both buyers and sellers. I have worked with him on both sides of buying and selling a home and have confidently recommended him to friends. He is personable, supportive, and competent."
"Gregg is a true professional and we were proud to have him represent us. His knowledge of the market, and the lake area in particular, helped us sell our home quickly. He is very decisive when making recommendations and has a strong work ethic. We would highly recommend him to any prospective home buyer or seller."
"Gregg sold our home in 3 days and made the whole process seamless! Following the sale, we had to make a few repairs for the buyers. Gregg found the contractors and supervised the work. He knows the Lake Minnetonka area. Would hire him in a heartbeat to sell our next home!"
"Gregg did an excellent job from assessment through closing. He ensured all of the details were handled in a prompt and efficient manner. He also did well with the negotiations to make it a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Gregg and will use him in the future."
"Worked very hard to arrive at a reasonable selling price. The hard work produced a signed contract in one day. Guidance in how to market our house to attract someone looking to downsize was exceptional. I can go on and on but just let me say Gregg was outstanding and would highly recommend to any future sellers."
"Gregg is very knowledgeable on how to sell high-end homes, including latest paint trends, and the nuances of variables that impact market value. With Gregg’s expertise comes assertiveness on many of the decisions so be open to some changes in your thinking and be prepared to push back where you have strong opinions!"
"Gregg Larsen is an incredible realtor and excels in everything he does with regard to real estate. He is professional, courteous, efficient, kind, and so wonderful to work with. He is always available and stays with his clients from the moment you contact him until after all sales and transactions are complete. Gregg has an amazing network within the real estate world and many connections. I would use him again and would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. His professionalism along with his fun and sincere personality make him a great realtor."
"We have worked with numerous real estate professionals in the purchase of 3 homes and the sale of two homes in the Lake Minnetonka Area and I can honestly say that, for that area, Gregg is the best (by far the best). I have a Real estate background and can ensure you that Gregg knows the technical side of the process as well as being on top of the softer side (relationship management and negotiations). We received 2 offers within 3-4 days of the list on a more than $5MM home so that speaks volumes of his preparation and approach! Finally, as we have been remodeling our new house, we have asked Gregg to give us recommendations regarding what will be the most marketable and he has happily assisted us. We will definitely use Gregg in the future!"
"My experiences with Gregg Larsen have always been above and beyond my expectations for a realtor. He helped me find a home quickly when I was going through a divorce and in turn helped me recently sell this same house for a great price. He is personable and is connected in the community. He is responsive and listens to your needs and wants and aggressively seeks out the best option for you! I would highly recommend Gregg!"
"I met Gregg almost 18 years ago and have used him on a total of 5 transactions (buying and selling). He always knows the market and is very consistent in terms of discussing home buying and home selling. Gregg has helped me keep my emotions in check around the process. On our last sale, Gregg did a masterful job of orchestrating the sales process between two buyers. Gregg is top-notch."
"We were looking for a lot to build on Lake Minnetonka and I was skeptical an agent would add value. After turning down multiple agents I met Gregg and was impressed with his knowledge of the area and the fact that, unlike many agents, he doesn’t come off as pushy. He helped us perform diligence and negotiate for the lot we wanted, but even more important he navigated us through the selection of a builder – I had underestimated the importance of choosing the right builder in Orono, which in retrospect could have caused major headaches. Gregg helped the whole process progress smoothly."
For over 25 years, Larsen + Rosolanka have held a strong presence in the Lake Minnetonka area and southwestern suburban real estate market.
