When Lane sold our home in a week after it had been previously listed for a year we were in shock! Our first response was joy, but our Minnesota skepticism wondered if it was prehaps just dumb luck. This thought was proved to be far from the truth as we ventured down the path of purchasing a new home.

Lane's knowledge and expert guidance was impossible to miss from the start. His experience in real estate put us at ease in the always frustrating and scary process of buying a home. When it came time to make an offer, I have no doubt his professionalism and market insight helped us land out dream home despite the multiple other offers.
