Testimonials

We have worked with Chris Rooney and his team of real estate experts to sell 2 homes (both sold within a few days of going on the market) and purchase 2 homes in the Prior Lake area. Chris and all of his associates are such a pleasure to work with and truly represented and negotiated our best interests, whether we were buying or selling a home. Chris has excellent knowledge of the marketplace and gave us realistic and credible suggestions on price ranges and various terms of sale. Everyone in Chris’s office were very polite and respectful of our personal situation and always kept our best interest at heart. Chris’s personal guidance helped us determine the optimum listing price of our old home and offer price of our new home. In both cases, we ended up selling extremely close to our listing price on the house we sold and the same on the purchase of our new home. All of our closings went very smooth with no last minute surprises. As future real estate needs arise, there is no question we will use Chris and his team again. We highly recommend Chris Rooney to anyone needing a real estate professional to either buy or sell their home.


Chris is the best realtor! He comes very prepared. Tells you exactly what needs to be done to sell. Seamless process, great negotiator and no drama. Very responsive! Highly recommend!


Chris and his team are very knowledgeable and proactive. We never had to worry about a thing. They sold our home in 3 weeks! It was definitely the easiest and most worry-free home sale yet!


Karin was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely patient in showing us several properties before we finally found the right one for us. Karin and her team have a level of expertise that goes unmatched in their coverage area. If you are looking for someone who will be patient and not pushy, extremely responsive with excellent insight and negotiation skills then Karin is the correct choice to represent you on your next real estate transaction.


We strongly recommend Chris Rooney and his extremely competent home sales team who provided guidance and support in the entire process of selling our home and an adjoining lot.


Being the son of local realtors and having grown up and attended schools in the local community, Chris has an exceptional knowledge of the the local community and its housing market, along with 28 years of experience. HIs expertise extends to the entire metro area as is evidenced by his WCCO radio show, the Real Estate Radio Hour which is broadcast every Saturday morning

Chris Rooney has a phenomenal knowledge of all aspects of the real estate process, plus extensive experience. From the very beginning, Chris provided valuable insights for listing, exemplary marketing information and a system of communication for informing interested realtors and clients of the special attributes of our property. This became especially evident in his advice to divide our land into two parcels to maximize its value

We were always amazed with the very prompt responses by Chris and his entire team to all communications. Whether it was phone calls and voicemails, e-mails, texts, or written correspondence, no questions or concerns ever went unanswered. As busy as he and his team were with numerous clients, we were made to feel we were his top priority.


Chris Rooney is an expert negotiator. Not only is he personable, but more importantly, he is trustworthy and always professional. Therefore, we were confident in his ability to negotiate with all types of agents and clients. We had trust in his expert and savvy negotiation skills, his commitment to us as clients, and his determination to reach the best possible result on our lot and home sale.


We highly recommend Chris Rooney and his team of experts. Chris exceeded our expectations in the process of selling our home and adjoining lot. From the beginning to the end of the process, we found Chris to be trustworthy, professional, honest and extremely knowledgeable. We totally relied on Chris and his team. He provided guidance and valuable insights from his broad-based real estate expertise and years of experience in home sales. He has a strong sense of commitment to his clients. Without a doubt, Chris Rooney is the best in the field!


We had a great experience working with Chris Rooney and his team. We couldn’t believe how responsive he and his crew were to all of our requests and questions that we had throughout the selling process. Our house sold fast and I am certain it was because of the good Marketing (including staging), excellent communication and Chris Rooney’s 28 years of experience in the industry was a plus!


Very professional process with great knowledge of the Prior Lake area. Spends a lot of time prior to listing the house on professional photos, staging advice and researching the proper listing price. Once we listed sold the home on the first weekend we had an open house. Overall very easy to work with Chris and his team would highly recommend Chris did an awesome job with the sale of our home. His expertise in the real estate field resulted in a quick and trouble-free sale of our home. He answered/ resolved any questions and concerns we had in a very timely manner. Chris’ professionalism and knowledge made for a very pleasant experience throughout the entire sale process. I would highly recommend Chris for your real estate needs.


We recently purchased a home he had listed for sale and sold our home through him also. Chris is very easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and very professional. He has a good team of associates to work with that also handle the smaller details. Someone was always available when questions came up. Many times during the sale if there was a question or concern he knew the right answer and if it was going to be a problem or nothing to worry about. We were glad to have him on our side and would recommend him and his team again.


Chris was very helpful, honest and I trusted his advise. Very knowledgeable and experienced in this changing market. I have referred him to several of my good friends and they are all happy with the service his team provided. Highly recommend!!


Karin helped us navigate through a very complicated farmhouse purchase. She was detailed, professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of her profession. Karin is a joy to work with and we highly recommend her!


Chris did a awesome job. We did do everything they suggested prior to putting our house on the market and it was worth it. Chris told us to be ready for showings and offers and that’s exactly what happened. Our house sold within 24 hours with multiple offers over our asking price. We know Chris and his team where the right choice for us. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris and his team, who sold our lake shore home in Shakopee. One of us has experience as a real estate appraiser and assessor, and had a general idea of what the property could sell for. The other is a sales executive and recognizes effective strategies in sales and marketing.


We had three different agents give us an independent market analysis. The three agents were within a reasonable range of each other and what we anticipated to list it for. We were most impressed with Chris and his team. He and his associate Karin, were so positive and excited about our property when they first came by. They had great suggestions about preparing and marketing it for sale. We had two offers in less than 36 hours after it went “live”, despite one VERY rainy showing day. We’re convinced it was largely due to the drone footage shown for the pre-list blitz. It was amazing. The team was very effective in communicating with us, sometimes under stressful circumstances.


Amazing. Willing to work around the clock to help me get what I needed. His team was always making sure I was okay and ready for what was next. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!


Very knowledgeable, understanding, focused, and professional. Sold our house in 2 days for full asking price. Very easy and seamless process. Very much recommend her.


I would definitely recommend Chris Rooney and his team to our family and friends. They were wonderful to work with. They responded quickly and patiently with all our questions. We love our new forever home and pleased with our offer on our previous home. Great experience all around!


Finding a forever home is one of the hardest missions to complete. With the help of Karin and her team, our house searching adventure was an exciting time. They found houses in our specific area we were looking for and when we found our home, we knew right away we wanted this house. With that being said, the team went above and beyond to help us get our forever home. I couldn’t be more happier with the team that helped us accomplish our dream!! Thank you to all!


Chris and his team are the best! Professional, knowledgeable, and responsive all along the way. They made our house the best, aggressively marketed it, and got top dollar for us. Not the cheapest, but you more than make up for that with the higher sale price. I’d recommend him any day.


Chris has listed and sold a few homes for us, as well as helping us buy a couple homes. We have already recommended and referred many people to Chris that have also sold/bought through him. Chris’ knowledge and expertise in the real estate market helps make the process of buying and selling run so smoothly for every transaction.


Karin was excellent end-to-end, throughout the entire process of both selling and purchasing our homes. We really valued her responsiveness, as she was always available and to answer questions, provide suggestions and kept us updated with both selling an buying our homes. She made great recommendations related to maintenance and staging. Because of her strong marketing approach in selling our home we have no doubt helped reduce the amount of time it took to sell and close at the price we wanted. Her thoroughness and confidence in negotiations allowed us to buy our dream home. We have referred many family and friends to Karin without hesitation.


Chris was very professional during the entire process of selling our home and on the purchase of our new home. We felt comfortable enough with him that we used his services, enlisting dual agency. Normally I would not have enlisted dual agency but he was very honest and upfront during the entire process and we felt very comfortable with his integrity as a Real Estate Broker. Chris came through on all his promises without needing any reminders on any of the terms originally agreed upon. In fact, for our 2 closings (sale of our old home & purchase of our new one) he was able to schedule them back to back at the same office so we were not driving all over town signing documents. This was very much appreciated saving us time and money. My wife and I would both recommend his services to anyone needing help with their real estate transactions. Btw- I am a very particular person about who I give my business to. In the end I am very satisfied and happy we chose to use Chris Rooney for our real estate transactions.
