Agent of the Week


“I thought Chad Jones was great, he took a whole afternoon to show me the land I wanted to purchase. It isn’t often you find anyone that would take their whole Saturday afternoon up, to drive that far out of the way.”

“Gigi was very helpful and extremely delightful to work with. She made the entire process very easy and if I ever sell again I would choose her again!”

“Eric’s work ethic and drive are the key to his success. He will exceed your expectations with all your real estate needs!”

“I would definitely use/recommend Michael Messina if you are interested in selling your property or purchasing a new property. He is very customer service friendly and knowledgeable on finding/selling properties to fit all your personal needs.”

“Christi Slattengren was wonderful to work with. From the very first consultation/ market appraisal to the closing, she was attentive, professional and reassuring. I felt very calm and comfortable during every step of the process of selling my house. She made a difficult situation feel smooth and secure.”

“Jeff was very professional and had a lot of knowledge that we couldn't have done without. Even after closing, he is checking in and I appreciate that.”

“My realtor Katie went above and beyond while selling our family home. She was available 24/7 for us. Very professional and driven. High energy with a lot of heart. I would recommend Katie to anyone selling a home.” 

“Jarrett was amazing and a real fun guy to work with. He helped me sell and buy a house and we honestly had a fun time throughout it all. As long as Jarrett stays in real estate he now has a lifelong client. Thanks Jarrett and we love the new house.” 

“Dee Furo did a great job representing me. She listened to my needs in a home and found the perfect one for me.”

“Carol was fantastic to work with. I've already given her name to at least two friends as a recommendation. I am very pleased with everything.”

“We were the first and only people to see the home this listing. The offer was made by 7 pm after a 5 pm showing. We had looked at a lot of houses over the last two years, and felt this house would sell quickly. So we made the offer. During the window created by the wait for an inspection, MaryBeth and I reviewed the information regarding this as well as other similar houses. Very satisfied with the results!”

"I appreciate the very professional service I received from Alicia Lokke from Messina and Associates. She is very knowledgeable, fair, and prompt in all our transactions. She also takes a personal interest in helping her clients sell and buy property. She clearly loves her job and she does it well."

"I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Brenna did an amazing job guiding a couple of first time home buyers through what would have been an otherwise stressful task. Would definitely recommend her to others."

"Cheryl is a very conscientious agent. I've had her as an agent for numerous transactions and have always been 100% happy."

"Deanna is one of the most professional people we have ever worked with in ANY capacity. She is excellent, personable, and we would recommend her to anyone."

"Frank explained everything to us and when we had questions, he quickly got back to us. He was incredible, and we will always recommend him to future buyers and sellers."

She is experienced and very knowledgeable about the market in our area and offers good advice. She really serves her clients well. We have recommended her to family and friends and will continue to do so. Real Living Messina & Associates is fortunate to have her representing their agency."

"Kevin O'brien is excellent in his service to customers. We have called on him twice to help us sell and buy a home. We have also referred him to several others. He is professional, knowledgeable, and his personal care and touch only makes him even more excellent as a person! Very satisfied!"

“Darrin exceeded our expectations on service. Even after the sale he continues to be available to answer any questions we have had about the property.”

"We were extremely satisfied with Nicki Conrad and Messina throughout the entire selling/buying process and could not be happier with the level of service and honesty provided. We will highly recommend her in the future."

"River was so easy to talk to, get along with, honest, and willing to work with us. My husband has a crazy on call schedule and River always got us in for a showing that day! I rarely got his voicemail, always got him directly. He was very consistent and stayed on top of everything to get our home closed quickly. It only took five weeks to close, and he talked the previous owner down to the price we were comfortable paying. Everything was stress-free, easy, and quick thanks to him, and we couldn't be happier with our new home!"

"Valarie Lake was one of many realtors that I have worked with over the years and by far the best. She was helpful, she cared about my needs and situation, and she was extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process and homes in general. Without her determination and support, I would not have the wonderful home in which I do."

It was obvious she had our best interest at heart and we felt well taken care of throughout the process. Casey is kind, professional, and fun! She knows the Duluth and surrounding areas very well. You will love working with Casey, we sure did!"

"Brian Rud was incredibly knowledgeable about the Duluth housing market and made our buying experience very easy. Even though we weren’t in the local area throughout the process, Brian went above and beyond to make it work for us."

"Scott B. was great! Friendly, knowledgeable, down to earth and honest. He eased our concerns from the beginning, making us feel comfortable & confident in the decision to sell & buy. We would recommend Scott to anyone looking to buy or sell!"

"Jeanne was on the ball, knowledgeable, has great rapport and was fun. She made it a great experience for our whole family."

Would highly recommend to say the least."

Thanks so much!"
