When our buyers dream of living on water... we make it a reality!

I was very impressed with the video you made of our house. I've looked at a lot of different realty websites as we look for a permanent house down here and I wish that those other sites would use that same idea. With today's technology and youtube it only makes sense to incorporate a video and I'm glad you thought of it. I thought it also made your website more professional looking. Awesome job, thank you very much!

We were extremely happy working with Dan Anderson as we searched for a lake cabin. We called the number on his web site, gave him the criteria for the property we were looking for, and he took it from there. He was very patient through the whole process, even as our two rambunctious boys tagged along during the showings. We appreciated his knowledge of the market value of properties in Northern Minnesota, and his availability to work around our busy schedule.
Patti & Ben Campbell Realty was very thorough and professional handling the sale of our lake home. We were very pleased with the personable and helpful services we got from our realtor, Chad McDonald.

For two years prior to retiring from the Air Force, we had been frequently visiting to find our dream home and hopefully make our final move to a lake in the Twin Cities. The day after landing in Minnesota, I went out to see 10 pre-chosen homes and three days later we bid on the first home I saw. Everything happened so quickly and so smoothly. We absolutely love our new home and couldn't have done it without the help on Dan Anderson and Terry Sohlo
Chris & Jean Dabroski
Dan was incredibly accessible and helpful in finding the perfect cabin for our needs. We felt very thankful to have such an honest and knowledgeable person help us through the whole process. We highly recommend working with to anyone!

Just a note to let you know how happy we were with you in the sale of our house. I don't know where to start. We decided to retire and move on with our retirement plans, called you to set up and appointment and it only took four days to sell...Wow! Chad was so upfront with us in what we had to face with the sale. He was knowledgable, prompt and he did exactly what he told us. He also took care of all things regarding the sale. We couldn't be happier with our service from and Chad. Thank you< for getting our retirement off on the right foot!

Chad, While waiting in a doctor's office last evening I picked up a copy of the Spring 2003 Lakestyle Magazine to read. I enjoyed reading your short article under the heading "Experts Share Tips with Lake Property Seekers." You stated, "You need to use common sense, of course, but don't wait too long to make an offer when you are interested in a property..." I think we followed your advice since we viewed the property on Swan Lake at 3:00 p.m. and were signing on the dotted line by 5:30 on the same day. It was neat to see your name among other Realtors in such a unique magazine.

We live in Effingham, IL, and while in the market for lake property in Minnesota, we found some properties listed on the website. was very quick getting information back to us via email. We came into town for a weekend and Dan took us to view many beautiful properties. After finding one on Big Lake, Dan made this long distance connection work for us. There were a few obstacles along the way and Dan made sure everything went smoothly right up to the closing. We are so very pleased with the property we bought. Thank you so much.

Our dream home was found by Dan & Sandy in no time at all! We wanted to stay on Forest Lake, but we needed more room. The Anderson's knew what we were looking for - we bought our new house on third lake in less than 24 hours. To make matters more interesting, they also sold our existing home within 60 days. If you want someone to help make your dreams come true call the Andersons-integrity at its best!!!
Wayne & Rita Knoll
We wanted a house on a lake and we didn't know where to start. But, it didn't matterÂ…Dan & Sandy made it happen like magic. We were never overwhelmed with the process because they made buying a house so easy. In fact, they made it less trying that buying our last car.

My son Brian and I were looking for lakeshore property in the Grand Rapids area. I found Realty and contacted Chad McDonald. After our initial contact he kept in constant contact with me and was always watchful for the type of property we were looking for. After we found what we wanted, he made all the arrangements and also made the closing go smooth.
Richard Herfindahl
Your understanding of the local lakes and value of lake property helped us through our confusing search. Finally, your help during the closing process with the bank and the other complications got us over the last hurdle.
John & Carol Weyandt
Just a short note to say THANKS again for all the work you and Sandy did for us in locating our new house. We sat in the living room for a half hour this afternoon just gazing at the lake, ducks & cootsÂ…very peaceful and relaxing. We can't wait for spring to move in for the summer.
