Testimonials from my Clients
Wendy was always quick to respond to any query and honest in her assessment of the market. My husband and I were looking at a time when the market had just shifted from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market, and Wendy was able to put as much in our favor as possible even though the market wasn’t in our favor.
There were times I felt like giving up, and when that happened, somehow Wendy could always tell and offer a hopeful (and true!) story of another one of her clients to keep me from despairing.
Without her help, my husband and I would not have been able to find a house so quickly. Wendy was always ready to write us offers and make the process as smooth as possible. She was a joy to work with and I never questioned whether she was on our side or not–everything she did made it apparent that we had an experienced professional backing us.
We would full-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house!
My husband and I had been searching for our new home for almost a year when we were referred to Wendy through a co-worker. At that time, we were frustrated and exhausted with our search. Wendy’s service came as a breath of fresh air. Efficient and knowledgeable, Wendy helped us navigate through purchasing a new construction. Throughout the process of buying our house we received exceptional attention, service, and communication from Wendy. When an unforeseen complication arose during the closing, Wendy stepped in and enabled us to close on time. We are truly grateful for Wendy’s help through entire process of buying our house. We highly recommend Wendy as a realtor.
We just closed on our Apple Valley home with the spectacular assistance of Wendy Carson. We chose Wendy because of her professional preparation prior to meeting with us on the potential value of our home as well as the great advise she gave us in getting the home ready to show to prospective buyers. Her knowledge of the market and psychology of selling homes is unmatched. We know we were very lucky to sell our house in under 30 days on the market, but we also know that without Wendy’s assistance it could have certainly taken even more time and been less of an excellent experience. If you are looking for a seasoned and knowledgeable realtor who will give you the fantastic seller assistance, call Wendy.
My wife and I met Wendy at a first time home buyers seminar she was hosting.We could see then how knowledgeable she was in all aspects of real estate and we knew that when the time came to purchase our first home, we would be contacting her. Once we began looking at homes with Wendy, she was always objective and professional while still showing empathy for our situation.She would point out the positives as well as the potential negative aspects of every home we looked at. She was always punctual and made sure that her assistant was available to show us homes, if she was unavailable. Time was of the essence for us and my wife had very limited availability to look at homes, so we really appreciated that. Wendy also returned all of our emails in 24 hours or less. Once we found our perfect home, Wendy went to battle for us. The sellers were unfortunately very uncooperative and somewhat dishonest.We were very impressed with how Wendy handled that situation, and while she can’t control other people, she did whatever was necessary to make us happy and comfortable with our purchase. Wendy by far exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond with her level of service. She was the one person throughout the whole transaction that we had complete faith and confidence in. Buying our first home was a bumpy and stressful journey, but we were glad Wendy was there with us every step of the way. Thank you Wendy!
Wendy Carson came to us as a referral from a friend. She just seemed to know what we wanted and needed in a home. If she didn’t think the home was right for us, she explained the reasons why. She didn’t talk us into or out of a home, just helped us weigh our options. The service and personal attention we received from Wendy was exceptional. In addition to helping us buy a home, she also led us through the process of selling our daughter’s home as a short sale. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Wendy Carson. We love our new place and have Wendy to thank!
My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Wendy!! She was with us every step of the way through our first-time home buying process! It was a wonderful, low-stress process simply because of her quality work. I was constantly impressed with her prompt and knowledgeable email replies. She works very hard and does really solid work! Also appreciated her honesty- she was really good at keeping us focused on our goals and we ended up with a house that we could not be happier with! Loved working with Wendy and would recommend her to everyone!
I have worked with Wendy on three real estate transactions over the past twelve years. She is very personable and takes time to get to know her clients. She values the relationship between a realtor and a client. She takes the time needed to help clients find the perfect home for their needs and in turn goes the extra mile to make sure that each transaction is a success.
Wendy is a top notch realtor as is evident by her service and dedication to her clients. I have used Wendy multiple times over the years to both buy and sell my home(s); and recommend her immediately when someone mentiones they need a Realtor. She’s always been polite, professional, and dedicated to providing the best experience. She goes above and beyond what other Realtors to do make sure her customers are informed and understand every step of the process.
For most of my adult life I viewed Real Estate agents as over paid, snake oil sales people that did minimal work for a pretty hefty pay day.
Well, that all changed when we came to Minnesota and had the pleasure of working with you! My vantage point tells me that you are a consummate professional with keen abilities in the area of marketing and you have an incredible work ethic. Further, you do a great job of making your clients feel at ease because we know that you truly care about us in the process we’re going through together.
In short, we are truly grateful for your help during the buying/selling of our home. And, we fell blessed to have been able to meet you and interact with you. Overall this MN experience has had some tough challenges, but knowing (and working with) you has enriched our lives; something we treasure and will take with us as a blessing! Thank you for everything…warm regards to you.
Sandy and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful job you did in helping to find our home.
This was the fourth home that we’ve purchased over the last 15 years and working with you was by far the best experience we’ve had. You were very thorough in understanding our needs and we found you to be a great listener. The homes you previewed for us and then took us to see were all excellent matches. You were very easy to work with and we always felt that you cared about our feedback and were patient with us.
You guided us through the entire process smoothly, including helping find a lender and the pre-qualification process, negotiating our offer, finding a great inspector, and working with the seller to resolve all issues the inspector found. You were very supportive and really know the real estate industry inside and out.
We’ve been living in our home over a year now and couldn’t be more pleased! You are our ‘Realtor for life’ and we wouldn’t think of doing another realty transaction without you.
Thanks so much for doing such a great job and we’ll be sure to refer all our family, friends, and neighbors to you in the future.
As a mortgage lender, I have worked with Wendy on mulitple occasions. Wendy is knowledgeable, professional, experienced and overall wonderful to work with! Wendy always has her client first in mind and will go above and beyond to to make the home buying process as smooth as possible! I have used Wendy as my personal realtor as well. I can honestly say (from both personal and professional experiences) she is the BEST in business!

“We were extremely lucky to find Wendy to help us with our relocation from Iowa to Minnesota! Wendy went out of her way to make sure that we found the right property for our family. With me six months pregnant and a six-year-old in tow, Wendy was extremely patient with us in our search and accommodating to our schedule. She helped us focus on the qualities and features we needed for our family, and assisted in providing clarity in our moments of indecisiveness. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market, and we felt like she was in our corner every step of the way. Even after our closing, she continued to advocate for us and was happy to provide advice on the sale of our former home – really going above and beyond the call of duty. We truly enjoyed the time we spend house-hunting with Wendy, and would recommend her with absolutely no reservations. We hope to stay in our new home for quite a while, but when it’s time to upgrade we will certainly be contacting Wendy both to list our property and help us find another!”
What an utter joy is was to have worked with Wendy. As a first time home buyer that had a dreadful experience with a different Realtor, and company. Wendy restored my faith. She was incredibly patient with my first time buyer questions, After several rounds of looking at houses, she knew what I needed even before I did. Yes. Wendy found us the perfect house. She was honest, thorough and tenacious in negotiations. Would I recommend Wendy, a resounding YES. In fact I have several times.
What a blessing to have been referred to Wendy!! She is – no doubt about it – THE best realtor I’ve ever worked with! Wendy impressed me with her vast knowledge of each part in the process, and her knack for seeing potential downfalls, possible future problems as well as the stellar points in each property we went to see. Equally impressive were her instincts which landed us on the doorstep of our new home…the BETTER home within our choices. She was always punctual and prepared and had a perfect blend of empathy, objectivity and professionalism. I am indebted to her for helping us purchase a home from another state, making the process much easier than our experiences with realtors in person! Even though we are waiting until the end of the school year to move in and we closed two months ago, she is still checking in with us to let us know how the weather has been and make sure we are having the home checked in on periodically while we are away. You just don’t see all of this in a realtor very often. They are few and far between from what I’ve seen. Should we ever have to move again, she will be the one I’ll call. And she will be the one I refer anyone I find who needs a realtor!
Thank you for all of your work in getting us into our house! This has been such an exciting time! Getting a foreclosure wasn’t a walk in the park, as you warned us, and thank you for being so aggressive on our behalf. We really appreciated how you always got back to us even when you were on vacation. Thank you!
Working with Wendy was great. Wendy was always on time, friendly, and well prepared. She found the right home in the right neighborhood at the right price for me.
By implementing Wendy’s advice, we sold our house in 24 days! She knows how to get amazingresults even in this unstable
When we were in the process of buying our home as first time home- buyers, we knew that we wanted to work with a realtor who could guide us through the process and provide a valuable perspective throughout all the stages. When we discovered Wendy we decided that she was the right fit, and we were not disappointed! Wendy explained everything to us and gave us useful tools in navigating the process, and was always supportive and let us take as much time as we needed. She helped us see the pros and cons of different houses and situations, and her experienced perspective was invaluable. Wendy helped us make our house dreams reality!
I would like to take a moment and thank our relocation advisor for referring Wendy Carson to me. She helped us to find our home.
We were extremely happy with her support and service. She is very knowledgeable and took care all of our needs and answered all our questions. She is very patient and super nice.
As you know school was our first priority and she helped us tremendously. We changed minds overnight , asked her to redo searches, show us houses in areas we decided not to go back, decided on a house and then called to cancel ….
Etc etc etc. But she never got upset. She always treated us with a smile and seemed like she was part of the family and understood what we want. Finally we got what we want.
Interestingly Wendy was not referred to me from work but I was surprised that majority of the folks in my organization and folks I know in Thomson used her as realtor. Everybody had great experience like me.
Anybody in her hands will be happy. I will certainly recommend her to my friends and also recommend you to use her for your clients who are relocating. Trust me they will not be disappointed.
Wendy – Thanks again for all your help in getting us into our new home! You were a great advocate for us throughout the entire process. This was our 4th move in 15 years from Indiana to Texas to Minnesota to Wisconsin, and you were, by far, the best realtor we’ve had. You were able to deal firmly, but friendly with the other realtors and builder which made our job as buyers so much easier. We also appreciate your ability to accommodate our whole family during house viewings and to be flexible with last minute schedule changes. You are very knowledgeable about the process, very attuned to details, and were readily available whenever we had questions. You truly went above and beyond our expectations. We will be recommending you anyone we know moving to the Twin Cities area. Thanks again!
Having sold two homes and purchased two homes with Wendy as our agent over the past 14 years, we feel uniquely qualified to recommend Wendy without reservation. We were especially thankful for Wendy’s patience, thoroughness, and knowledge while we were building our current home. She knew what questions to ask throughout the process and saw to it that we got what we were asking for from the builder. In addition, Wendy was always friendly, positive, and fun to work with. She really loves what she does and it shows!
Our relocation experience with Wendy was great. We had a very short time to locate a home in a new state and her experience and willingness to assist was phenomenal. Wendy provided us with all of the information needed prior and once we arrived to search for a home, and consistently remained available. She made the additional phone calls necessary for us to get a great deal on a home, which other realtors may not have been as willing to do. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we would highly recommend Wendy to anyone searching for a realtor in our area.
Wendy helped us through our first home buying experience. We looked for about three months with her, and she was always responsive to our questions and needs, and always a pleasure to work with. She completely understood our needs and wants, knows the particulars of the business and we had great communication throughout the whole process. Wendy is always pleasant, real, and thinking of your best interests, but she also knows how to handle stressful situations in a professional way. You can feel confident that you are being taken care of in the best possible way when buying or selling a home with her. She has the experience and tact to get the job done. I would work with her again any time!
Being only 20 years old, my fiancé and I never thought that buying a house would be so soon in our lives. We thought we would never get approved for any mortgage but with the help of our lovely agent Wendy it was possible. She helped us throughout the whole process and guided us through each step from the beginning to the end. Wendy has become part of our lives and is a great friend to talk to, you feel so comfortable with her. Thank you Wendy for all your help and you will always be in our lives.
Hello the day after closing! I want to thank you for your superior customer service, attention to detail , and great follow through. Your professional yet kind treatment of me during this whole process was most appreciated. I really admire your business and (what from my world would be considered “counseling”) skills!
Looking forward to our next adventure—
“Wendy is the best!” That is what my friend Dave told me when he recommended Wendy to me for my upcoming home purchase. And Dave was so absolutely right. Wendy is beyond “the best”. She is less of a Realtor, and more of a social worker. When you work with her, you are a project; nay, you are family! She takes the time to understand what you are, and what would work for you, and then goes about finding it for you, and doesn’t rest until she gets it.
When we first started working with Wendy, we gave her all sorts of mixed requirements. These were passed on to her on the phone without ever meeting her. When we did finally arrive in Minneapolis and then met with her – more than a year after our initial contact – Wendy started showing us places that met our criteria (one level living). She contacted builders and spent an endless amount of time trying to talk to the agents. She asked all the right questions – things we hadn’t even thought of!
Realizing that building a new house would require time that we did not have, we decided to include two story houses in our search. More than us, Wendy was disappointed in not being able to find us a one-story home which was our
initial requirement. When we did find a two-story home that we liked, the first thing she said was “but this is not a one-story”. The one thing Wendy said repeatedly during our searches was “I don’t want you to compromise.” Once we assured her that we weren’t compromising, she was happy for us. Not counting the new construction (which there were at least three of), we had seen some thirty plus houses. That said, Wendy would have shown us thirty more, maybe twice as many, to get us exactly what we liked, if we would have not liked this house. And all of them with a big SMILE!
We’ve already told Wendy when the time comes to sell this house, we’re calling her!
As a means of brief background…. My wife and I came over here to the Twin Cities from Appleton, Wisconsin. We came in the worst real estate market in US history and actually did not sell our home for 22 months. I tell you this because it will illustrate the level of service you can expect from Wendy.
During that entire time, a time when we could not buy a home since we had not yet sold ours in Wisconsin, Wendy stayed close to us and continued to work with our search. Despite no movement on the horizon, Wendy continued to research homes for us, as well as showing us potential dwellings.
More importantly, Wendy was a trusted advisor to us during this entire time….providing us with tips on how to sell in Wisconsin (even though she had no stake in that process) and how to stay active in our search here. Equally important was her role of “upbeat cheerleader” during our time of frustration as things did not come to fruition.
Wendy’s best attribute is her ability to size up her client’s needs and help them move in a direction that will be positive for them in the end. She listens very well and will help you find the right home, even if you don’t recognize what she surmises at the onset of the process. She sure led me in a way that never felt pushy but clarified things for us when we eventually were able to buy. We live in a great home in a wonderful neighborhood and have Wendy to thank for that. I endorse her completely and know that you will be happy if you work with her.
Wendy is a true professional yet down to earth and friendly with her clients.
She is responsive and passionate about making time for each and every one of her clients. She goes above and beyond and constantly strives to exceed her client’s expectations. Wendy prides herself on knowing the market in order to
provide buyers and sellers with the best possible service. Her professional approach, knowledge and integrity make her a joy to work with and I would highly recommend to her to my clients.
- Cindy with Bell Mortgage, Apple Valley, MN
Wendy was absolutely wonderful! We appreciated her professionalism, honesty, consistent communication and knowledge of the market. Wendy made herself available anytime to answer questions while we were still living out of state. She was there with us through the house hunting, purchase and closing process. She took away a great portion of stress you have with relocating. We are amazed at her hard work and determination to get the job done in the timeframe required! She is truly an expert in the business and is highly recommended.
We are loving the new house. Thanks so much for all you’ve done to help us find our new home. A move from Europe to the US is complicated enough and trying to find a house from a different continent seemed almost impossible. You’ve made everything so easy for us. Your patience and commitment to helping us find the right home was much appreciated. You really looked out for our interest which made it very easy to trust the process. You were always there responding
promptly to all our questions/concerns, small and big. Your exceptional knowledge of real estate and the area was comforting. We really felt we were in good safe hands. We could not have hoped for a better process from beginning to end.
Thanks so much for everything Wendy!
Tom and I wanted to thank you for all your help in finding this wonderful home in Hudson. Moving a thousand miles away from home is never easy, but your coordination of all the aspects of our final destination certainly made it as
easy as it could be. From your initial previewing of homes we found on the Internet to your showing of properties first to Tom and then later to me, your professionalism and courtesy always shone through. We appreciate how you worked
with the sellers and inspectors while we were still out of town and trying to get the deal done. You made the transaction as painless as possible. We would certainly recommend you to any of our friends buying or selling in the Twin Cities area.
Thank you for everything!
Wendy Carson did an outstanding job in helping me find exactly the right house for my family and I. Wendy was not just a “run of the mill” realtor trying to close a deal. Wendy showed genuine concern and care about my family and I. She didn’t just take me to see homes that I wanted to see, she investigated the homes, the neighborhoods and so on and tried to make sure that I was looking in areas that were best suited for my family. She represented me as if she were looking for a home for her own family and gave me a feeling that was very reassuring. I would highly recommend Wendy for anyone who is looking to be involved in any type of real estatetransaction.
In helping us identify the right neighborhood and the perfect property, Wendy Carson took much of the moving stress out of our relocation to the Twin Cities area. Wendy was a delight to work with from the moment we contacted her; she truly listened to our needs and desires. Her experience and expertise in the area enabled her to quickly narrow down the areas that she felt would be right for us and her instincts were right on. She was happy to show us numerous properties while we learned the area and was always patient and attentive, taking note of what we did and didn’t like about each property so that she could better screen places to show us. Knowing the market and real estate in general, she was able to guide us and point out positive and negative things about various properties so that we could make an informed decision. We are thrilled with the property we purchased. Wendy walked us through each detail of the negotiations, inspections and closings, which was very helpful given that we were relocating to a state with different legal issues. We would recommend Wendy enthusiastically for anyone with relocation or realty needs. She combines professionalism and expertise with a friendly, caring personality — a plus for anyone who needs quick results with some hand holding along the way!
As a first time homebuyer, the whole home buying process is a bit overwhelming. Having Wendy in my corner made the entire process much easier, and enjoyable.
Wendy was in MY best interest…which was one of my main concerns. I was new to the process and wanted someone who would help me get into a great home, but also to educate me as well. Wendy was always willing to answer my questions, kept a great attitude and gave me great advice on the home buying process.
Without Wendy’s expertise, I can honestly say that I do not think I would have gotten the home I truly wanted!
Thank you very much Wendy!
I have known Wendy over many years and worked with her personally on several occasions. My experiences have been so positive that I’ve referred my family to her. Just between my parents and myself we’ve used Wendy four times in the last five years and I’ve also referred friends who have used Wendy and been highly satisfied. To further strengthen the value of our repeat business with Wendy, I’d like to share that in my family we are intense people with high expectations. We all agree that she’s the best in the business. For example, my father has said that in buying and selling over ten homes over the years he’s never worked with someone more professional, intuitive and grounded than Wendy. And that he’d never use anyone again except Wendy.
I agree with all the praise my family has for Wendy and I would take my recommendations one step further. Wendy sold a high-end home for me during the challenging year of 2009. She was creative and resourceful in her marketing;
she was rigorous in managing all aspects of the listing and sale process. On top of that she is a great listener, sensitive to buyer/seller needs and truly works to find an optimal solution for everyone involved. In today’s real estate world
it can be challenging to know who to trust. Wendy operates with the highest level of integrity and professionalism I have ever seen.
Since selling my home I have moved to California but if I ever purchased another home in Minnesota (or Western Wisconsin), I would only work with Wendy. I strongly recommend her to my family and friends, many of whom have had the delight to work with her and feel the same way.
You will feel safe, well cared for and be assured you’ve made the best decision possible if you choose Wendy Carson as your realtor.
I would consider myself high maintenance when it comes to house shopping. I wasn’t going to settle for a house, nor was I going to rush myself into buying something just because my house sold. Overthe course of 8 months Wendy and I looked at many houses and condos across the twin cities and southern metro.
Over the course of our search, there were a few houses that I thought were decent, Wendy encouraged me to keep looking until I found one that was exactly what I wanted. She never seemed to mind our 6 hour jaunts, or my banter about
the houses that didn’t meet my criteria. She was always on time and had a water bottle waiting for me when we began our adventures.
The real-estate market is full of realtors who will tell you what you want to hear, and encourage you to buy or sell something quickly to generate a commission. Wendy is different. It was important to her that I find a housethat truly worked for me and met my needs.
Wendy is sincere and genuine and I highly recommend her.
We worked with Wendy on the sale of our home in Hastings in 2000 after a corporate relocation sent us to Denver. Wendy did an exceptional job of marketing our property; she was thorough, clever, professional and always a top-notch communicator. She acted on our behalf in all details and served us well as a liaison between our relocation company, buyers, mortgage company, title company, and the like. Wendy went above and beyond the expectations of a listing agent to the extent that we felt we were her only marketed property — though that was not the case at all!
In 2006, we found ourselves relocating back to the Twin Cities and went directly to Wendy to help us find our new home. On the buying end, she again worked tirelessly to show us homes in Eagan, Lakeville, Shoreview, Hudson, Inver Grove Heights, Vadnais Heights… basically, anything in the eastern half of the metro area up to and including Wisconsin! Since our home in Denver took so long to sell, she took us through numerous homes over the course of many
different weekends over a year. She kept us updated with listings, emails, phone calls — all without being the least bit pushy or presumptive. Wendy is very intuitive, intelligent, patient, analytical, and kind — all qualities you must have in a realtor. Once we found a few homes to put offers on, she was thorough and approached issues from many angles. She stayed with us to the very end at our successful closing, and has continued to keep us updated on her work via flyers on new listings, special events she’s hosting, and the like.
Though we hope to never have to leave the home we currently own, if that day comes for us or our children, Wendy will be the only realtor we would contact. We recommend her completely.
When relocating to a new area, the house hunting process can be a time of stress and anxiety. This was not our experience due to working with Wendy. She quickly identified what we wanted in a home and a neighborhood and pointed us in the right direction. Her attention to detail, her knowledge of the market and her great personality made house hunting a true pleasure. Wendy was a delight to work with and she helped us find not just a house but a home. She is a true professional and we’ve already referred her to other colleagues who are relocating to Minnesota.
“Wendy is extremely patient and focused on her clients’ needs. She worked around our schedule and persisted until we had found the perfect home. We really appreciated her experience working through the negotiations as well.”
Prior to Wendy our experiences with Realtors had been, let’s just say less than stellar. The amount of legwork and research Wendy did for us was amazing. Not to mention how impressive her communication with us was. It made buying a new home one of the most seamless experiences we’ve encountered. When we decided to sell our home, there was no question that we would have Wendy represent us again. Thanks for instilling our confidence in realtors again Wendy!
We moved 6 times using realtors. Wendy is by far the most hard-working, and caring realtor we have ever worked with. She worked with our best interests at the forefront. She thought about all of the things that we needed to think about but forgot to while looking at many homes. It was very important to her that we were happy with our purchase and our new home, and it showed. We would recommend Wendy to all of our friends and family, and we will certainly work with her again for our next home sale/purchase. We could not be happier that we landed in St. Paul. We absolutely love everything about the house. We are sure we would have liked the Lakes too, but St. Paul fits us like a glove. Thank you, Wendy.
- Mindi and Jim, St. Paul, MN
Wendy Carson is the best! Her ability to relate with people combined with knowledge and pragmatic skills as a realtor make her truly exceptional. We loved every minute of the process — not only did she show us over 50 houses in four days, she found the perfect house for us.
“Wendy cared about us finding what worked for us – and not just closing the deal to make a commission. She was informative, helpful and not pushy. She was a good listener and is there well past the sell. I have recommended friends to her, and they chosen to work with her as well. When we move again, I’ll call Wendy.”
- Donna and Dan, Prescott, WI
We cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done to welcome us to Minnesota and help us find a new home. Wendy, your warmth and hospitality is greatly appreciated and meant a lot to us during the four months of urban camping and we just want to say “Thank you very (or should I say ‘berry’) much.” You are truly an amazing person/agent…patient, kind, strong, and delightfully AWESOME!!! We both particularly like that you’re a “peaceful warrior” in closing the deal. Most assuredly, we will refer everyone to you and think of you when we’re ready to move in the future. (Then again, we just might stay put where we are. Right now, we cannot even think of moving again.)
We bought a house 4 years ago and it was a pleasure to work with Wendy Carlson. She is so professional and gave us a lot of options and she was above and beyond our expectations. She was so patient with all our questions and always willing to help us on each step of the process. We highly recommend Wendy as realtor.
Wendy sold 2 townhouses for us and helped us buy our current home. We would highly recommend her services. She has a strong attention to detail and in-depth industry expertise. As a buyer, you don’t always know what features you’ll need in a house a few years out. Buying a house is a big investment, so you want to make the best decision given the available information. She also helped us negotiate some “extras” with our builder that turned out to be important features for us.
Her industry contacts are also very helpful. Wendy passed along several finance contacts, one of which we used and turned out to be a great resource that we’ve used several times.
She does her homework and is prepared. When she sold both of our townhomes, she compiled a book of comparable townhomes for sale in our area with details on the features on each home. She recommended a list price and provided details to support the price. She also helped us make small, inexpensive changes to stage our townhomes for sale. The changes were easy things we would not have known to do.
Wendy represented me in acquiring a commercial property. Her attention to detail and quick responsiveness made the purchase process go smoothly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for commercial or residential representation.
– Joe, Mendota Heights/West St. Paul, MN
We really enjoyed working with Wendy. Somehow she was not only professional but seemed as though we had a family member taking care of us. She is honest, reliable and never pushy. We bought
our house six years ago and continue to recommend her today.
Wendy has done more than help us sell and buy a house, she helped us find a home. When we sold our previous house, Wendy was extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and the value we could get for our house. She guided us on home improvements that strengthened the show-ability of our house and optimized the market price. Wendy had a creative, modern and aggressive marketing strategy which resulted in a multiple offer situation, obtaining a selling price that exceeded our expectations. Her negotiations skills are second to none. We were not her only clients, by far, but we always felt like we were her first priority. The real estate market can be very intimidating. Wendy was outstanding at explaining the complexities of the real estate market and property transactions, making us very comfortable with the decisions we made. While Wendy has outstanding skills as a real estate agent, she was more than an agent to us. She knew us, our likes and dislikes and our goals. She is a true friend. She worked tirelessly not only in selling our house but in finding us, not another house, but a home , perfect for our growing family. Although we have no intent on leaving this perfect home Wendy found us, we would recommend her to anyone else who is looking to buy or sell a home. If our needs ever change, Wendy will be our first call.
In the past 10yrs Wendy has helped us purchase two homes, and sell one. Wendy worked tirelessly to help us find exactly what we were looking for, on both occasions. She is professional, patient and has a good sense of humor. She listened to our needs, and applied it in her efforts and very quickly was able to adapt to our sometimes changing minds. Wendy is very easy to work with, and understands that buying a home is a major decision. We never felt rushed or pressured in any way, and always knew we could count on her integrity and honesty. We always felt that Wendy wasn’t just trying to find us a house, rather she worked with us to help us find our home.
Wendy worked with us over a two-year period before we finally made the move from Dallas. She went through exhaustive searches with us and then helped us get the perfect home. Her professionalism never wavered and we have remained friends ever since. Now, it’s likely we’ll be moving again soon and we have already turned to Wendy for her expertise and advice. We will certainly use Wendy for our next move.
We first moved to the Twin Cities through a corporate relocation, and had only three days to make a decision on a city, neighborhood and a house.
Being new to the area we had to rely on Wendy for everything, and she really came through for us. Long before we were able to come up to visit Wendy talked with us about cities, the current state of the market, and what we were looking
for in our home. Before setting foot in the state we had already reviewed and discussed dozens of houses and areas. When we finally had the chance to look at homes in person, she had us and our kids on a mission to find what we wanted -
and every house we looked at was responsive to what we asked for. Over the course of the three days, as she got to know us better, she added and removed houses on our list so that the final day was one house after another that we
would have been happy with. When we finally settled on the one we wanted Wendy helped us through the offer, negotiation, inspection and everything in between. We ended up with a house and a neighborhood that we love.
We didn’t know what it would be like to have only three days, and we thought going in that we would certainly miss something. But we finished the process feeling like we had seen everything worth seeing. Remarkable considering how
little time we had and how little we knew coming in. For our perspective, it couldn’t have gone much better.
Wendy Carson is an exceptional Realtor. My experience with Wendy is superb! I have known Wendy for a number of years and have grown to consider Wendy a good friend. Wendy is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Wendy’s knowledge and her sincerity are greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend her to others for all of their real estate needs. She most assuredly deserves the title of “Super Real Estate Agent.”
I’ve known Wendy in a professional and a private capacity for over eight years. Professionally I have found Her to be knowledgeable, energetic, effective, honest, and dependable. Privately she has been kind, caring, and compassionate. I would highly recommend Wendy Carson to anyone in need of an real estate agent.

It isn’t often you have the chance to talk to dozens of people about their experience with a real estate professional. Through my work I have had that experience. Over the years Wendy has assisted many of our new employees with there housing needs. Each one has commented how effective, and personal, she was. I highly recommend her.
We had the pleasure of working with Wendy after a corporate move from Colorado. Between selling our home in Denver, managing the move and having to stay in corporate housing, we were burnt out when we got to Minnesota. We were in need of an agent that could not only find and show us properties that met our criteria but also help us manage our new home purchase. Wendy met that challenge head-on, helping to evaluate the homes we were interested in and finding new listings that she knew fit our profile. Her constant contact with us through closing made us feel like we had an advocate instead of just an agent. We recommended Wendy to our family when they moved to the Twin Cities, and we’ll definitely work with her again when we’re ready for our next move.
I’m a “Do It Yourselfer” for just about everything except selling a house. I’ve relied on Wendy to sell two houses (even in a difficult market) and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Wendy knows the real estate market, offers trustworthy advice, and works very hard when marketing and presenting your house. I enjoy working with Wendy and will certainly call her to buy or sell my next home.
We have worked with Wendy on both the buying side and selling side—twice each. She is always willing to go the extra mile, whether it is to get questions answered, communicate with the builder, follow up after showings, etc. We were always very satisfied with her customer service and professionalism, and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When working with Wendy, we always felt that we were her most important clients.
When we first decided to start looking to buy a home, the whole process seemed a little overwhelming. We tried to look online by ourselves, but that’s where we found Wendy. Wendy brought us in, explained the process and really got to know us. On our first outing, she was very knowledgeable and had us hooked on working with her. She would work with our schedules and make time for us, even until 10:00 PM on a Wednesday. Although it took us a while to find the home we were set on, Wendy stuck by us and encouraged us to keep looking. If there was a house out there, she could find it.
When we did find our house, we finally understood what Wendy meant when she said be careful of short sales. It took us just under 5 months to get our offer accepted and close on the house, but Wendy was there the entire time. Whenever
there was new information, Wendy would be on the phone with us, explaining what would happen next. She wouldn’t let us “Settle” on that house and encouraged us to keep looking during the process up until we got the call with our closing date. Wendy made the entire process enjoyable and it was like we had a friend working with us more than a realtor. I have no doubt in my mind that if we ever needed to sell our house or find a new one, we would work with
Wendy again in an instant.
We understand that you’re just doing your job, that you always give your best because it’s your way to be referenced and such, but we really felt that you gave us a lot more than expected from a realtor. And we felt cared, informed, and confident through this long process, even though it was completely new for us (it’s very different market… and language, ha!).
You really helped us make the right decisions, up to the point were we found exactly what we were looking for, beyond all our expectations, and at a great price. We felt confident signing papers because we knew you were reading them
with us, and you were always asking questions in our best interest.
So what can I say…you helped us find our first place we can call “home”…you’ve helped us achieve some of the most important goals we had in life. So for that, and all that “extra something” that you’ve always given, thank you. For the patience in understanding our needs (and language differences!), for following up on everything, for making us feel comfortable, spoiled and pampered, and for even after everything was pretty much done being that great professional you are… thank you.
We might not know a ton of people around here yet, but rest assured that if somebody ever thinks about getting a realtor, we’ll make sure that it’s you.
Whether you are selling or buying a home, Wendy takes extra steps to ensure a successful real estate transaction. Her knowledge of real estate and her marketing skills are extremely valuable when you are selling your home. She knows how to reach potential buyers and how to negotiate with sellers. She spends time with you to make sure your needs and interests are met. She works hard to understand what you are looking for to make a “house” a “home” for you and your family. You can trust Wendy to work for you!

I have used Wendy in both the buying and the selling of a home. I find her to be the epitome of professionalism, knowledge, and patience.
When I was buying, she carefully listened to what I thought I wanted, and through questions and a few showings, I was able to view only good possibilities for purchase.
When recently selling, she was able to logically set my expectations, listen to my ideas, and work with me on how to best price and present my home. Even when things got slow, she insisted on having regular open houses, and kept me
informed of changes in the market.
I would recommend and use Wendy again.
When we found out we were moving to the Twin Cities area for my job, we contacted Wendy based on a recommendation from a friend at work who had also been her client. Wendy was very helpful in sending us listings and researching those we were interested in. When we flew here for our house hunting trip, Wendy devoted almost all of her time to us since she knew we had a limited amount of time. Knowing that we were from out of state, Wendy took a lot of time to explain local real estate practices and regulations to aid us in our selection process. She was extremely patient with us as we walked through house after house during the 4 days we had in the area. We found a house that was nearly perfect for our needs and budget and she became a strong advocate for us during the offer process and provided referrals to home inspectors and other services. After the purchase agreement was signed and delivered, she stayed in touch with us to make sure things were moving along and even filled in for us at the closing. Wendy is the consummate real estate professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends of mine to her and have done so already.
