“Tom and Karen Zell Verhelst could not have been better realtors for our property. They kept us informed regularly, even our adult children, as to what was happening with our home. They also went out of their way to make the sale of our home happen…… I will definitely recommend Tom and Karen to friends and anyone who asks about our experience.” (2017, Henning, MN)

Here is a little of Tom and Karen’s philosophy:

We understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why along with our experienced team we are dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of our clients. We take great pride in the relationships we build and always work relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.

Our Mission Statement:
Our philosophy is simple: clients come first. We pledge to be in constant communication with our clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job. We don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of our clients.
