Testimonials

We have had the fortunate experience to work with Conrad Roal over the course of 6 years of buying and selling several homes within the Twin Cities area. Not only does he know the cities, lakes and is able to position property appropriately based on the location, he has a great network of partners that help prepare the property and find right buyer.

What is especially impressive about Conrad is that he is an expert in the real estate market and takesthe time to help you understand what happens during the course of the buying/selling process. He also has a keen eye towards preparing a property according to what a buyer/seller is looking for in a particular area.

For example, before we got started we had an introductory meeting to determine what range the property should be listed – with comparison to similar properties recently sold as well as how best to prepare the property for sale.

With our last home sale in November 2014, Conrad assisted us with all aspects of property preparation including:

  • Consulting recommendations on interior changes to maximize value
  • Arranging paint and wall preparation for interior transformation
  • Staging our furniture to accentuated the property

We look forward to working with Conrad again when purchasing or selling a home. He is great to work with and delivers outstanding results.

Sincerely,
Matt & John


It has been my fantastic pleasure working with a true Professional when it comes to Residential Real Estate. Conrad Roal With Lakes Area Realty has helped me and my family on 4 levels!

He was a great help in finding a buyer for a property my son owned that was going into foreclosure and negotiated a traditional sale that avoided any financial problems credit wise for him!

He was a great help in educating me on short sale and bank owned property so after looking at approximately 20+ properties –we made many offers some rejected and countered but of prime interest was a home in Watertown, this was a short sale– so very time consuming going back and forth to the bank and the current owners and through it all Conrad was there–very encouraging and finally a great deal was accepted by all and I personally purchased the home as an investment!!

My daughter at 22 was wanting to move out on her own and was thinking an apartment was all she could afford. Again, with Conrad's help and many properties on the Market she was convince that now was the perfect time to buy with prices plummeting. With Conrad's help she found a great Bank Owned Property in Watertown, 4 bedrooms, 3 car attached for $100,000 below existing market value in the $250,000 to $350,00 range. To purchase your first home at such a young age is very stressful and Conrad again made the process easy and answered all of her questions and she is now living in her own home for less then what some 2 bedroom apartments would cost!

My oldest son is moving back from Las Vegas and I informed him of my great relationship with Conrad Roal. My son wanted to purchase a higher end home with acerage. Again Conrad like a true professional accepted the challenge and began the search–Again 25+ properties where seen and a few offers rejected but they are now closing in August on what they call their dream home!

So not only have I and my family had help with selling a delinquent property, but also in purchasing one on all three levels–Conventional, Bank Owned, and Short Sale! I highly recommend Conrad Roal as the realtor you should want to do business with! His professionalism shows at every level, he schedules showings at your convenience, has all the comparable's ready if you want to make an offer, never questions picking up a business lunch and at a closing you are made to feel very comfortable because no surprises!!! It is a joy to write this because as a businessman myself it is a rare treat to encounter a true dedicated professional! Conrad–I have enjoyed your professionalism and also I especially enjoy being able to call you my Friend!!

We recently sold a house on Lake Minnetonka. Conrad was our realtor from day one. We initially chose Conrad because of his experience and knowledge of the lake. We quickly found out that he has so much more to offer than just local lake knowledge. You won’t find a better realtor than Conrad. We’ve had other experiences with other agents. There’s no comparison. After our experiences with other realtors, our impressions of realtors is not very high…except for Conrad. He’s thorough, patient, detail-oriented, easy to work with, competent, ethical, honest, professional, fun and, most importantly, he sold our house when no one else could! We wouldn’t consider working with any other agent. He managed us so well. It was a stressful time, but he kept us on track and kept us focused on the prize…getting the house sold. His communication was fantastic. He always knew what, how, and when to communicate information. He talked us off the ledge many times (seriously!!). You’d be wise in selecting Conrad as your realtor. He’ll take good care of you.

Conrad is a very patient, knowledgeable and thorough agent who helped us buy our first home as well as our second home. He also helped us sell our first home. He never grew tired of our extremely picky taste and ever-changing minds. He did a great job handling negotiations with the buyers agent and made sure the sale went as quick and as smooth as possible. He gave sound and pertinent advice, and was an advocate for us when we needed it most. I would gladly and highly recommend him to any prospective client.
