Testimonials From Our Valued Clients

 

Paul & Adam are the best. We met Paul at an open house and were amazed by his knowledge of the Mendota Heights market. He and Adam were great at answering all of our questions and being patient throughout the process. They showed us homes in other markets around the area as inventory was limited in MH, but Paul/Adam kept reminding us to be patient and we ultimately found a great house. We couldn’t have asked for a better group to work with and highly recommend anyone that’s in the market to reach out and at least have a discussion with them. You’ll be impressed. – 2021

Adam and Paul Dorn were wonderful to work with. We would not have found the home we are in today without the help of this incredible group. Their knowledge and connections within Mendota Heights and Eagan are absolutely invaluable. I cannot imagine working with anyone else if you are in the market for a home in Mendota Heights. The Dorn group is in constant communication with their clients throughout the buying and selling process. They understand this is a stressful time in your life and they do everything in their power to ease that stress by providing excellent insight and advice. This is not a group that is trying to “sell” you a home; this is a group that is truly excited to find exactly what you want within the range you provide. We feel lucky to now consider the Dorns family friends and ALMOST neighbors. 😀 – Tom and Shirley 2020/2021

Honestly I am not sure where to start here, but as a first time homebuyer, Adam knocked it out of the park compared to my expectations. Adam helped me navigate a completely unpredicted competitive market. Adam was always extremely responsive and willing to move quickly if that was required. Adam was always flexible and helped me have realistic expectations with every house we saw and offer we submitted. In addition, the rest of the Dorn Group is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They have the advantage of having multiple agents who are ready to assist in the event Adam is busy (which never had to happen) If I had to completely restart my home buying search for some reason, Adam would be the first call I make. I cannot recommend him enough. – 2021

I worked with Adam Dorn to purchase my first home in 2021. To say the least, the housing market is crazy right now. As a first time home buyer, Adam blew my expectations out of the water. Adam helped me navigate the market and kept my expectations in check with every viewing and submitted offer. Adam was extremely responsive and was able to work quickly when needed. In addition to Adam, The Dorn group has several other agents who are happy to step in and assist at any moment if Adam is already booked. If I were to re-enter the housing market, Adam and The Dorn Group would be my first call. I cannot recommend them enough. – Ryan 2021

We’ve purchased two homes with The Dorn Group and highly recommend Paul, Lisa and Adam to anyone looking to buy or sell. They are a great resource of information and have guided us during all aspects of the process. We sold and purchased in April of 2020 and the team were wonderful helping us to pivot during the changes due to the pandemic. Thank you Dorns! – Jennifer and Bric 2020

“Adam was attentive, caring, and detail oriented. I was very impressed by the time he put in both in terms of looking at homes, but also following up with me on my questions and concerns, particularly during the middle of a pandemic. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a personable, qualified, and smart real estate agent.” – David 2020

“We  had a very positive experience working with Paul and his team. We initially chose Paul over other representation because of his vast knowledge and industry experience in the Mendota Heights area. Over the several months that we worked together, we came to also appreciate the service, responsiveness and thorough explanations that Paul and his team consistently delivered. We would have no hesitations in recommending Paul and team to friends and family who were looking to buy and/or sell their home.” – Ann 2019

“Lisa was tremendous from the first meeting we had with her, all the way through the process of finding a home. She took time to listen to what we really wanted and frequently checked in during our search to make sure she was completely on the same page with us. Lisa was always available and willing to make whatever needed to work happen in terms of scheduling. We felt completely supported from start to finish, and there are simply not enough superlatives to truly do justice to how wonderful we feel with her representing us and guiding us through everything associated with our home search.” – Erik 2019

“Paul is THE most professional agent I have come across in my many years in the Twin Cities. His knowledge of the market, extensive contacts, organizational skills and ability to assess property values enable the client to make informed decisions regarding buy & sell pricing. I would only use Paul in the future.” – Steve 2019

“During the fall of 2019 we sold two houses and purchased a town home through the Dorn Group. The experience was positive and happened relatively quickly. Paul was extremely helpful in all aspects of the transactions. He is a fair and honest individual and his clients are his number one priority. Paul’s associate, Joe Clark has an extremely calming manner when you are dealing with the stress of selling and purchasing a home. He is a great asset to the Dorn Group.” – 2019

“Lisa was an exceptional realtor. She kept in contact with me every week to keep me updated, or more often if needed. She was extraordinarily gifted in helping me make decisions with as much information as possible and supporting those decisions. She was very responsive to my questions and, if she didn’t know the answers, she searched them out for me. I’d highly recommend her.” – Barb 2019

“The Dorn’s (Lisa and Adam worked with us) run an excellent RE/Max agency. They work as a team and it really gives results. Responses are always very fast, any time of the day or week. They were great listeners and attentive to our needs, even when they changed significantly in the middle of the process. They are quite knowledgeable in general, but also particularly in the area of Mendota Heights. We used them to buy, and we’re in the process of selling our home. I’d highly recommend them to anyone.” – Neil & Genevieve 2019

“Working with Lisa was an absolutely incredible experience for our family. Lisa continuously went the extra mile for us-whether it was showing us homes during snow storms, making one, sometimes two trips in a day from her office in Mendota out to Minnetonka (the area in which we were looking), and even held our infant daughter for hours at a time so that we could inspect the details of each house we saw with free hands. She made the process of buying a new home with a new baby as painless as humanly possible. Her knowledge of the current market, resale vales and trends, and home design is unparalleled. We can’t wait to work with her (and Paul) again on our next home purchase and sale (which is hopefully, WAY in the future from now 🙂 )” – Mara 2018

“Lisa was an incredible help for us as we purchased our first home. She adamantly looked out for our best interests every step of the way, and quickly found many houses for us to look at that fit our criteria.” – Alex 2018

“We worked with Lisa and Paul this summer. We told them what we wanted and within a few days they had a property for us. We saw it pre-market and ended up buying it. Lisa also handled the home we were selling. They gave us great advice and and sold our home quickly to the third couple that look at it and offered full price.  Both Lisa and Paul were great to work with – thank you for making the move so painless. We highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell, particularly in the Mendota Heights area.” – Barry & Rena 2017

“Lisa assisted us in locating and purchasing our new townhome. When we decided to downsize, we contacted Lisa and she worked tirelessly over nearly a year to find the right opportunity. We were able to complete the purchase without difficulty and Lisa went beyond her role to help us select a contractor and designer for extensive remodeling. We do not expect another move but would definitely retain Lisa if there would be another move in our future.” – Al & Kathy 2017

“We sold our home in Mendota Heights a couple of months ago. Lisa was our agent. We benefited from her in-depth knowledge of the market. Her pricing recommendations helped to sell the house quickly and got us in a situation of multiple bids that actually got us more than we asked. She guided us through the entire process. We soul definitely recommend her and her company.”

“Lisa and Paul represented me in my recent transaction and all I can say is they are their office are true rockstars when it comes to understanding the markets and their clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for anyone considering a great representative in the real estate world.”

“As a first time home buyer in a very competitive seller’s market, I will forever be grateful that a friend recommended Lisa Dorn!  I really can’t imagine what my experience would have been like without Lisa and her associate Drew Peterson.  Without them, I know that I wouldn’t be the happy homeowner of my “must have” home.  In so many aspects, it was fantastic to work with them.    Their insight, protection of me as their client, and their experience and expertise was critical to my offer being accepted even though other offers had already been submitted.  TRULY 5 STARS!” – Bobbi S.

“It was wonderful to work with Paul Dorn and his associate Megan Frey. Paul is a very pleasant fellow and knows the Mendota Heights / Eagan area thoroughly. Megan was delightful and very patient with me and my wife as we looked at many homes this fall. We found the perfect home for our needs and highly recommend P.L. Dorn to give you a feeling of security and confidence as you sell or buy your home.” – Jon & Kaki

“We completed a home purchase in early 2015. Without hesitation we recommend the Dorn team. They are very knowledgeable and bring a professional, responsive, easy to work with & easy to understand approach. The Dorn company also brought resources, key information and value-adding solutions to our purchase decision from beyond the team, when it was needed. Paul, Lisa, Bea are top notch. No one understands the market they serve and how to successfully navigate real estate transactions than PL Dorn.” – Dru & Ann
