Ratings & Reviews

Jim was exceptionally instrumental in helping us sell our NE Minneapolis bungalow quickly and at a great price. His knowledge of the current marketplace, the neighborhood and the potential buyer climate was deep. In addition, his ability to walk you through the process of inspections, etc. is second to none. He was always quick to respond to communication, friendly, honest and had the ability to calm us during this new-to-us process. He even laughed at our jokes... even if they weren't funny. :) It is apparent that he really thinks about your specific home and how best to position it to the world. We could not have been more pleased with Jim's work and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Jim has great knowledge of the NE Minneapolis neighborhood and was able to identify the best list price for my house. We recieved multiple offers and Jim was able to provide me with the guidence for accepting the best offer. Jim also helped me find and purchase my new home. Jim was patient as me and my wife looked a lot of house to find that perfect home. I will be calling on Jim in 20 years when we plan on selling the new home

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Minnehaha, Minneapolis, MN.

Jim was a great help to my wife and I in buying our first home. We were pretty green at the beginning of the process and didn't really know where to start. There is a lot to consider from the get-go, just figuring out exactly what we were looking for, what neighborhood was a good fit, and what we could afford. We found Jim, and he turned out to be the perfect place to start. He easily guided us through the preliminary stage and was impressive from there on. He broke down everything for us newbs so we learned as we went and are now more knowledgeable homeowners thanks to Jim. We found the perfect home for us in just the right location! This guy is an asset to anyone trying to navigate this daunting process for the first time - would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Sheridan, Minneapolis, MN.

Jim shined in all aspects of our interactions, but he was especially great when it came to selling our house. Good knowledge of Minneapolis, of real estate, and a level head when emotions ran high (as they will buying and selling homes). Total pro.

Showed home in 2014 in Windom Park, Minneapolis, MN 55418.

Jim responded promptly (very) and coordinated to show me two places thus far. He understands the neighborhood and knows the buildings! I will continue to work with Jim in my pursuits in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Shoreview, MN.

Mr. Dropps did a wonderful job representing us in both selling and buying a home. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. His local knowledge of Northeast Minneapolis is second to none, and he was also very knowledgeable about the surrounding suburbs. He was a true professional throughout the process. He was extremely responsive, and he was skillful at successfully guiding us through the negotiation process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Bryn Mawr, Minneapolis, MN.

Minneapolis, like many other housing markets across the country, has seen a healthy rebound in the last year or two. Being a first-time buyer in a seller's market with rising prices, rising interest rates and low inventory is incredibly stressful. Jim removed an enormous amount of stress from the process for us. He was patient, knowledgeable, respectful during negotiations with sellers' agents and ultimately guided us into our first home. We highly recommend Jim for any buyer, particularly first-time buyers who are looking for someone who is willing to spend a little more time explaining and answering questions. Jim's a rockstar.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Marshall Terrace, Minneapolis, MN.

Jim not only helped me sell my family home of 26 years, he also help me find and purchase my new home. Since I had not bought or sold a home in a very long time I was a pretty needy client. Jim was very patient, and went above and beyond to make sure this life changing situation was as painless for me as possible. I would recommend him to my family and friends, and if I ever move again I would not consider using anyone but him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Waite Park, Minneapolis, MN.

Jim is an excellent Real Estate Professional. He help me and my fiancé purchase our first home. His knowledge of the neighborhood helped us purchase in an area we were less familiar with. When our price range wasn't producing and decent results, he helped us re-assess our needs. We found the perfect home for us, and it was very fairly priced, so we didn't have much negotiating on either side. His ability to respond quickly via e-mail and phone was very comforting throughout the process, and he really helped us understand the buying process. Thanks to Jim, we have our perfect first home in a great NE MPLS neighborhood.
