Real Living 1st MSP Realty
In 2001, a small group of experienced real estate professionals realized that real estate brokerages were not meeting the needs of a vast number of agents working for these brokerages. They began reviewing the real estate industry looking for national companies that had the vision of creating a brand that would place the customer first.
These Realtors found only one company that really put the customer first and they were willing to prove it with their “Premier Service Commitment” program to guarantee the delivery of caring, verifiable customer service.
The company, GMAC Real Estate, formed in 1998, purchased and rebranded to Real Living, in 2009. Their a focus was on offering the Premier Sevice Commitment to all clients and specifically Corporate Relocations. The local franchise, 1st MSP Realty is owned by Jerry Young, a 25 year veteran of selling homes throughout the Twin Cities. Even more recently, through a number of acquistions, Real Living 1st MSP Realty is now a franchisee of Brookfield Residential and partnering with Home Services, Inc. The franchise relationship with Brookfield Relocation now enables this locally owned Savage based realty firm to work with nearly 700 companies worldwide helping their employees with their relocation needs.
Today, Real Living 1st MSP Realty ranks among the top 100 companies nationally maintaining over a 97% customer satisfaction rating with thier clients through as shown by their annual Premier Service Commitment awards.
