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 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.
Super friendly and whip smart, Jim is by far the best realtor I've ever used. He seems to know the nuances of every neighborhood in the Twin Cities and added helpful insight to every step of the buying process. I couldn't be happier with my house or with my experience working with Jim.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Marshall Terrace, Minneapolis, MN.
Jim was an excellent source for home buying knowledge as I entered it without previous experience. His concern for the resale value tempered my impulse to buy the wrong house and I'm very pleased with my purchase. He was good at listening to what I was looking for and provided a large assortment of options right away.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $525K in Saint Paul, MN.
Jim was resourceful, patient, understanding and extremely easy to work with while we were selling our old home and building our new home. He knew the ins and outs of the real estate market and didn’t let any industry downturn/upturn or company name do the work for him. He did it himself! Most importantly – he was always eager and optimistic which helped keep our spirits up when our anxieties got the best of us. Thanks Jim!

Jim was a HUGE help - He was very easy to work with, made himself available for several open houses and is very honest. He knows the housing market very well. I reccomend him to all my friends and family. You need to contact him if you're buying or selling a home - he helped us on both sides, the sale and buy.
