How We Sell

The Platzke team is committed to working with you to sell your home.

Check Mark The Highest Possible Price

Our home selling process has been perfected for over 36 years. From our first communication, to our initial home consultation, to the contract and onto closing you win. Because of our reputation, you will experience an average of 5-10% improved net proceeds at closing.

Check Mark In the Shortest Amount of Time
Selling Real Estate in this market for more than 36 years gives us the unique ability to advise on market timing, giving you a competitive advantage. Our marketing program is consistent and predictable providing us with reliable metrics that can help us identify how long it will take each listing to sell. In fact, we sold 436 homes in the Twin Cities in 2018.

Check Mark With the Least Hassle
We want your biggest concern during the home sale process to be that you were expecting it to be more difficult. Our goal is to provide unmatched customer service, and a “let us handle that for you” approach from a contract, to close, and beyond.
