Absolutely unbelievable experience with Roost! From start to finish the team were SO supportive, responded to our every question right away, and just made the home selling AND buying experience phenomenal. I never thought I would enjoy the process but I really had peace of mind knowing the Roost team had us covered! We recommend them to all of our friends and look forward to working with them in the future! Thank you to the entire time for helping us find the home of our dreams!

Roost Real Estate is fabulous to work with! The Team members are all seasoned professionals and treat every client with impeccable TLC and integrity. I've worked within the Real Estate industry for 18+ years and would definitely refer my family and friends to Roost!

J Cole

These guys are great. They set clear expectations in the beginning with respect to how they work , communicated throughout the process, and carried a challenging sale through the finish line. I'd highly recommend Roost Real Estate.

Although I was not involved at the time that Dougherty Funding LLC selected the DRG Group over other more well-known real estate brokers such as Sotheby’s and others, I have worked directly with the team, including BJ LaVelle, during the course of selling luxury condos at The IVY. I believe that they have proven that Dougherty made the right choice several years ago. I have found them to be aggressive marketers (not in the obnoxious sense) that work hard to maximize sales prices. They have shown they have reach into a range of price points – from $200k on the low side to $1.5+ million on the high side. I have never found them to merely “settle” for a sales price below market, just to make a sale. Just as important, they have made themselves available, when necessary, for meetings, conferences calls and respond very quickly to email queries.

The team at Roost made our move so easy and stress free. As first time sellers, they answered every question we had and sold our house in record time. All of the sudden, we were on the other end of a seller's market and they went into overdrive. They were just as motivated as we were to find our perfect house before we closed. We started the hunt and they were great about helping us work showings into both of our busy work schedules. Once we found our house, the Roost team was efficient and precise to put everything together in our tight timeframe.

We really enjoyed working with Roost to find our first home. Becky did a fantastic job walking us through the details of home buying. We always felt like we were a priority! Thank you so much for all of your work and attention to detail, Becky! Highly recommend Roost.

As a first time condo buyer, it was critical to me to find someone who knows the market, understands the intricacies of condo buying, and whom I could trust. BJ has a lot of great press, but as always, a trusted friend helped me decide whom in turn to trust with my buying experience. BJ and his team were always on top of everything every step of the way, including successfully negotiating a multiple offer situation, making sure to advise and recommend whenever we hit any snag, or just on simple process.

The net result was a great buying experience, and painlessly finding my way home to a neighborhood i’ve been keeping an eye on for years for the perfect spot. As with any major purchase, you want the best representing your interests; I’d unequivocally recommend BJ and his team to be the ones you want in your corner when making that purchase.

Kelly Hamm

The entire team was extremely professional yet down to earth. I felt no pressure and truly felt that my wife and I's interest was being put first. In my opinion, the Roost team are a perfect example of what all real estate agents and companies should be like.

B Miller

It can be very difficult to find someone you trust in the real estate industry, but the team at Roost is unmatched in their integrity and focus on us as a customer. I was so impressed with their responsiveness, personalization, and overall dedication to making the process as easy as possible. I highly recommend Roost to anyone looking for excellent service and dedication!

Nicole E

The team at Roost made took a complicated process of selling our old townhouse and buying our new house pleasant and rewarding. Could not recommend higher.

Peter B

BJ and Becky were absolutely amazing throughout the entire buying process! They were always readily available to meet my husband and I to look and houses and were there to protect US in regards to putting in an offer on a house. I would use their services again if we were to buy another house! They are so so great! :)

Caitlan

I am so thankful for finding your team on our mission to find our first home! I've been dreaming of a condo since day one in Minneapolis and it means so much for us to really make that happen in perfect timing after our wedding. You are all rockstars, above and beyond, customer service exactly the way it should be. Thank you for putting us first and staying so organized! That level of trust and peace of mind is key to have when juggling my busy working lifestyle. Thank you for being so committed, generous, and patient. Helping me accomplish this step is such an important milestone for my future! I'll be recommending you and coming back without a doubt when we're ready to sell someday and hopefully upgrade to even bigger and better city living!

Casey & Lisa Dahl

BJ and Becky genuinely care about people and it shows. I had to relocate to the Cities for a job and had two days to find a place to live. Roost made it happen - and the week before Christmas, no less. I spoke to BJ on a Friday, flew in Monday morning, and he showed me a condo I fell in love with that afternoon. We had a contract by Wed, and the rest is history. BJ and Becky continue to check on me as I settle in. Moving is stressful, particular when you pick up your entire life and move halfway across the country. BJ and Becky are dedicated, positive, and well-connected; I feel very fortunate to have found them.

I have worked with BJ and Becky on multiple transactions and can speak very highly of their industry knowledge along with the way they treat their clients. I have also had the pleasure of volunteering with them both for Habitat for Humanity so I know their commitment to the community and that speaks volumes in and of itself. Great people and great company.

We loved working with the Roost team. BJ and Becky helped us find a great house, in a great neighborhood that is perfect for our family now and in the future. We can’t thank them enough for all they have done for us.

The Millers

From the moment we met BJ and Joe at an open house, we knew they were the realtors to help us find our new MN home and downtown condo. Our corporate relocation was still many months away, but BJ and Joe took the time that day to show us some available options and begin educating us on urban living. They stayed in touch and were ready to go when we finally arrived in the Twin Cities. BJ and Joe were focused and flexible, as well as extremely patient and determined. Most importantly, they were knowledgeable; providing critical market information and valuable tips and reminders throughout every step of the exciting, but sometimes stressful process of purchasing a home. We were in the hands of real estate experts! Not only did we find our dream condo, BJ and Joe are now wonderful new friends!

We had a great experience working with Roost to buy our first home! They were fast, organized, and professional throughout the process, not to mention fun to work with!

S Beacher

My past experience with realtors has not made me a fan. BJ and Becky, however, make me rethink my bias. They were very competent and professional. We felt very comfortable with their expertise, advice and level of service. In addition, we were out of town while selling our property and Becky went out of her way to do some things that would normally have been done by us. We are very satisfied with this team. Thank you.

Joe & Sue Meyers

I've had a fantastic experience working with the team at Roost. They are incredibly knowledgeable and hard working. I'd recommend them to anyone without hesitation!

Matt B

BJ was excellent! We relocated from Iowa with no knowledge of the area. He showed us multiple neighborhoods and did market research and was an excellent negotiator in protecting our investment.

Lori S

I think I can confidently speak for both of us in saying that first and foremost, we LOVE our new home. After spending nearly two months our house, it is safe to say that it is everyone we were hoping for. Secondly, I don’t think any of this would have been possible without Roost Real Estate.

Having bought our condo in a very down economy, it was tough to comprehend what was happening in the real estate market today, from both a buyers and sellers side. After meeting with the team, we were confident in our ability to sell our condo quickly and for a great (even a fair) price, and assured that our dream house was out there, and that the team would work with us as long as it took to find it.

Our condo sold very quick – quicker than we had anticipated. That fast sale, made our search for a new place even more crucial as we were now under a time constraint to move. Even with that constraint, we didn’t feel pressured to settle for anything other than our dream home. And after several weeks, when this house was listed, your team worked quickly to make sure we were the first people in the house and the first to submit our offer. Even though we had to sharpen our pencil after multiple offers were received, BJ talked us through some considerations on what our next offer should look like. That alone not only saved us thousands, it put us in a position get the house!

Between the time of accepted offer and closing, you guys worked with us to make sure everything went smoothly with selling our condo and buying the house. The little things like address change reminders, moving company suggestions, etc. were all well timed and received. Even after close, both BJ followed-up with us to make sure were doing well and the house was still what we had hoped. BJ even gave us some suggestions on who to talk to about a small flooring project we were looking at.

At the end of the day, Roost Real Estate helped us transition from our condo to a beautiful house and allowed us to really start planning for the future. We’ll be sending all of our friends and family to Roost Real Estate as the experience we had can’t be beat.

B Koeser

Roost guided us through the entire home purchase and was always there to answer questions. They were extremely knowledgeable on the market, and were very fun to work with. If we sell our home in the future, Roost will be the first call to help. We highly recommend!

Chad Smith

Caitlan

The whole Roost team were fantastic support throughout our first-time home-buying experience. Knowledgable, well-connected, and supportive of us as we navigated the housing market while fine-tuning our desired house specs, we felt well supported and never rushed. A great experience, will work with them again in the future, and would recommend!

M.D.

The team at Roost Real Estate is fantastic! They are incredibly quick with communication, are very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and sincerely care about providing their clients with the best experience possible. Having worked with many different real estate brokers in the past, nobody does it as good as Roost Real Estate.

Ben Feret

I had a great experience working with BJ and his team at Roost. Made purchasing my first home very easy. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to any of my family and friends. Professionals all the way!!!

These guys are great. They set clear expectations in the beginning with respect to how they work , communicated throughout the process, and carried a challenging sale through the finish line. I'd highly recommend Roost Real Estate.

J Haugen

These guys were fantastic to work with and an invaluable asset to us as first time home sellers! They walked us through the process, gave us great advice on how to prepare the home for showings, and most importantly they really knew the marketplace and helped us determine the best asking price to list at. We sold our house in under a month and I really credit Joe, BJ, and Becky a for all their hard work. I would HIGHLY recommend this team to anyone looking to sell in the Twin Cities!

Drew Miller

BJ was a delight to work with. He knew exactly what we were looking for and he made the buying process less hectic and stressful. He continues to be diligent and helpful with any post closing issue or questions we had. I would highly recommend him!

Luigi Bernardi

The Roost team was a pleasure to work with in finding and buying our Minneapolis home. They communicated just the right amount and were patient and flexible throughout the process. They listened to us and had a good idea what we wanted. They gave advice when asked, respected our opinions and was on our team when we needed their support. We wouldn't hesitant to recommend Roost Real Estate to our friends.

Sue Drehmel

BJ was great to work with - definitely recommended. Having known him for 25+ years, I already had confidence in his honesty and integrity. BJ's knowledge of the marketplace and patience in waiting for the right deal are unmatched.

Brandon Micheal

As a first time home buyer I couldn’t imagine a better experience than with Roost! Becky and BJ exceeded my expectations and found exactly what I wanted in a home. They were there to answer my every question and guide me through the entire process step by step. Highly recommend Roost if you’re looking to buy or sell.

L Fugleberg

BJ & Becky were fantastic to work with throughout the buying process! They remained patient with us and negotiated very well on our behalf. A pleasure to work with!

K Spaniol

The team was extremely timely, professional, and hands on throughout my entire buying experience. The showings, negotiations, and closing could not have gone smoother. I would highly recommend using Roost. It's also reassuring that they're so involved in the community and truly enjoy giving back.

C Rose

I can’t imagine a better team to walk us through buying our first home. They never gave up or let us get discouraged. They were with us every step of the way until we found our dream home. We’d recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Abby O

My husband and I have known BJ for 5 years and finally got the opportunity to work with him when it came time to purchase our first home as a married couple. We were worried it was going to be a long and stressful process but BJ made the experience enjoyable and made sure everything ran extremely smoothly. We wouldn't have our current home without BJ's savvy negotiating skills. Since then we have referred him to other friends who also rave about his expertise and his ability to get homes/condos sold quickly and find the place that matches your vision! I don't think you could find a better agent in the Twin Cities! BJ is the best!

Tina Scoville

I met Bj while looking at an open house in downtown Minneapolis. I was immediately impressed with BJ’s knowledge of the Minneapolis condo market as well as his friendly personality and kind manner. Because I felt so comfortable with BJ I asked him to be my realtor and it was the best decision I have ever made!! Not only did he sell my condo in a very short time, BJ also found me my perfect condo that exactly fit my needs. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my beautiful new home that allows dogs! I recommend BJ with the greatest enthusiasm!

Barbara B

We were impressed with Roost Real Estate's record, knowledge of the market, and the ways in which you give back to the community. Your business model is something we wholeheartedly support.

The process was straightforward and we were kept in the loop about what to expect, if/when the condo wasn't generating the amount of interest we were hoping for. Also, they were more than helpful in dealing with several showing glitches promptly and addressed our renter's concerns/schedule constraints. This selling experience was better than we could have expected. Thanks so much!

BJ owns the downtown Minneapolis condo/loft market…..if you don’t work with BJ and his team you are missing the most knowledgeable team…..period.
