Helped me buy home
This was my very first time in purchasing a house for me. Not knowing what the typical steps are in buying a home or who to represent me as the buyer, what I did was go to Zillow and chose the agent with the largest amount of positive feedback, which was Lisa Stevens. This was a very good choice. She and the team of Vibrant Realty helped me throughout the process from scheduling property showings, obtaining vital information I needed, and answer all the questions that I had. The time between drafting the purchasing agreement to closing the deal took exactly three weeks, with no obstacles along the way. The flawless nature of this process made finding and purchasing a home very enjoyable and stress-free. I am currently enjoying the home I am in now. I seek interest in looking for additional houses later down the road and am very interested in working with Lisa Stevens and Vibrant Realty in the future. Less ... More

Boy was I luck to find Lisa a year ago and still lucky today! Last year I backed out of a house after finding that it was too small for my tastes in the end. This year however we found the perfect place for me since I wanted a duplex. One problem- it was foreclosure and only had enough money down for a FHA loan which normally arent accepted on these types of transactions, especially in a hot real estate market in NE. Most real estate agents would've given up at this point and told their clients to look for another house. Not Lisa! Lisa used her expertise to get my offer in and ahead of everyone else. Also through the whole process she was there by my side walking me through the house buying process which was a godsend being a first time buyer. Overall I am very glad Lisa took me back as a client from last year and she has gained my trust and recommendation. So much that if I ever pull the trigger on getting my license she will be the first I call to work for! Thanks Lisa! Less ... More

Joshua, You were so great to work with. I really enjoyed working with you explaining the in's and out's. It was nice to be able to upload our offer directly into Home path. They wanted a owner occupant but the listing agent was not accepting FHA offers. It was nice to be able to directly input our FHA offer into Home path and they accepted buyers offer. The bank made sure that all repairs were completed which is nice. Most of the time they tell you they won't do repairs, but I say always ask :) Joshua I look forward to working with you on a professional level. Best wishes!

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Lisa and her team back in 2007. We looked at a lot of houses and Lisa was very knowledgeable about pretty much every aspect of buying a house and possible issues. She even found someone to buy our mobile home, we had been trying to sell for years. Over the years whenever someone is taking about buying, selling or even renting we give them Lisa?s information. Now that we are looking to buy a camp, she was the first person we contacted, and we are looking forward to working with her again. Less ... More

Awesome, Lisa spent a ton of time with us to help us find our perfect home. We moved to Minnesota in the fall last year and Lisa helped us find an a home in a great community with really good schools. We looked at multiple communities and she provided us with a lot of great information and options. Lisa is very unknowable of the different areas in the metropolitan area. She is very energetic and helps get the most out of our money. At closing she was there for us and helped us with the closing paperwork. Less ... More

I don't normally do testimonials but I felt I had to let everyone know the amazing work and awesome customer service i received. Lisa Stevens is a miracle worker!!!! I was so down and out because my circumstances regarding selling my home did not look good. I met with Lisa and she gave me hope. I was very impressed with her confidence and knowledge. She knew exactly what to do and what to say. While I was still doubtful, Lisa went straight to work. I couldn't believe it when she called me a week later and told me I had a buyer. Lisa's team kept in constant contact with me all the way. My home was a short sale but she and her team still treated me like I was making them a million bucks! Never once were my questions unanswered they were always quick and prompt to respond. When my buyers pulled out at the last minute i lost hope again. But once again Lisa treated me like I was royalty and moved quickly to find me a new buyer I was amazed when I got the call that they found another buyer only after a few days. I tell you if Lisa was able to sell my house in its present state I would trust her to sell any property! Lisa is a miracle worker!( I know I am repeating myself but I had to say it again) I have referred another friend to her and my friend was also impressed! I am so blessed to have worked with Lisa, Sallie and Makayla!!!! You can't go wrong and I would refer anyone to her and her team!! You are awesome Lisa I feel so blessed to have met you! Less ...

Mavis, We had such a wonderful experience working with you. I'm so glad you were patient thru the process. Short sales are one of the hardest transactions in Real Estate. Not only are we negotiating with the buyer but negotiating with the bank and making sure the seller is our main priority through out the transaction. Bank negotiations are very tricky especially when you are dealing with distressed property that was vandalized. Thanks for hanging in there with us Mavis!!!!

Helped me find a home to rent
We are newlyweds that moved from Illinois to Minnesota from work. We only were able to view a handful of houses for rent 3 weeks before moving. Vibrant Realty really impressed us with both understanding our situation and going above and beyond trying to help us find a nice, suitable home in such a short timeframe. We absolutely love our townhouse. The location, size, and upkeep is perfect. It was also extremely helpful that the day we moved in, we were met by a representative to inspect the house. Any defects or marks we noticed, Vibrant Realty took pictures of so we would not have to pay for pre-existing damages. They made our fast move MUCH less stressful and are a wonderful company to rent from! Less ... More

I really enjoyed working with Lisa. I hired Lisa after a bad experience with my previous realtor. While I pretty much knew the house I wanted before I started working with Lisa, she still stepped in and helped me push it through at a price I was happy with. Lisa was very responsive, and offered to help in any way she could.

My husband and I contacted Lisa to inquire about a home that her company had for rent. Initial contact on our end was tenative, because most realtors do not want a thing to do with renters, and have treated us like we are wasting their time. Lisa responded to our inquiry much quicker than expected. She was incredibly helpful and answered all (and I had a lot!) of my questions promptly and professionally. Lisa was truly a pleasure to work with and we will be sure to recommend both her and her company to friends and family for both rentals and purchases! She will definately be our first go to when we are looking to buy a year down the road!!! It is a pleasure to build a professional relationship with someone who is truly passionate and hardworking.

Lisa helped me buy a house in the Twin Cities. She is incredible--she has so much integrity and I felt I could completely trust her. Her instinct about houses along with her knowledge of the area were invaluable, as this is my first time coming to this area and I knew nothing about neighborhoods OR the logistics of winters here and housing amenities. Along with being a superlative real estate agent, she also is just a great person--generous and warm-hearted. I've dealt with several real estate agents in the past so I feel I know what I'm talking about when I say that Lisa is really special. I give her my highest recommendation. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
I was introduced to Lisa Stevens at Vibrant Realty by coworkers who had a good experience purchasing a first home with Lisa. Lisa was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole home buying process. Lisa was always quick to respond to questions (as a first time home buyer there were an awful lot of questions), schedule showings, forward paperwork, etc - even while on vacation and tending to a family emergency. She had a good network of home inspectors, mortgage brokers, etc. to recommend which made the whole process much easier. When a delay in a repair required before closing threatened to disrupt the sale, Lisa went above and beyond all expectations to get things back on track, including incurring some unexpected costs herself. Truly Lisa did everything possible to ensure a successful home purchase, especially given the difficulty in communicating and working with the sellers' realtor. Lisa's staff were also great, keeping everything in order when Lisa needed to be away from the office. Unfortunately with Lisa's healthy client load and need to travel while this sale was in progress (and poor communication from sellers' realtor), a few details were missed - such as a difference in understanding over which appliances and fixtures were included with the house. Excepting these few overlooked details, overall I was very pleased with Lisa (and staff) and will gladly recommend her to friends and colleagues. Less ... More
Response fromLisa Stevens
This was a very difficult transaction. The septic system was non compliant and we fought to make sure the buyer received a new septic that was fully compliant. This was a huge process because not only did we need to get city approval also engineering approval from a company down in Mankato. I worked with the city and engineering company as the buyers agent to ensure a successful closing. When we got to the property on the final walk thru and the seller had move the refrigerator from the lower level to the kitchen and took the newer refrigerator. The purchase agreement clearly stated all appliances would stay. This was brought up to the listing agent and she refused to do anything about it as well as the Sellers. I worked with my client to come up with a monetary solution to remedy this situation. Less ... More

Lisa and her team were fantastic to work with. They guided me through a short sale of a downtown St. Paul condo. What could have been a frightening and confusing process was managed step by step with Lisa and Sallie (Martin). I was kept informed along the entire way from listing, showing, negotiating (buyer and banks), and closing. In addition to the process, they also educated me on the fiscal impact and the debt forgiveness act that helped mitigate my tax burden. I highly recommend Lisa Stevens and her team of hard workers!

Lisa, and her team at Vibrant Realty made my short-sale experience better than I ever expected. When they said I wouldn't be required to pay any fees, they were right. When they needed something from me, it was easy. When I needed something notarized, they came to me. At the last minute, my realtor, Susie called and said she needed my signature yet one more time.....I was very busy at work, so she made the time to drive to my office to get my signature. Sallie is the negotiator, and she knows everything! Everything about Lisa and her team is 100% professional and I couldn't ask anything more out of any of them. I know I wasn't their only client, but they made me feel like it! I can't imagine using any other real estate company when it comes time to buy again. Less ... More

I had been looking for a townhouse for several months and had worked my way through several real estate agents and I became dissatisfied with how I was NOT connecting with any of them. Then I met Lisa and her team. I felt an instant comfort level with all of them. They understood my needs and were able to provide me with a rapid response approach that I really appreciated. If I saw something on the online site that I liked, Lisa would usually get it scheduled ASAP ("like yesterday";!). It took from November or December 2012 to April 2013 to locate the property that was best suited for my needs. Lisa and her staff are warm and personable, friendly, helpful, and tireless in their efforts to please their clients. All in all, it was quite a journey. I learned a lot in the process.

Lisa and her associates made my short sale process so simple. I had waited for over a year to do anything about my townhome and figured the bank would just foreclose it and be done, but they kept me responsible. After many sleepless nights, I finally googled short sale realtors in the south metro and found Lisa's website. She contacted me right away. We met, filled out papers and had the townhome on the market within 24 hours and several showings and many offers within 36 hours. The bank quickly accepted one of the offers and the closing was complete within 7 weeks of meeting Lisa for the first time. It was a "piece of cake". If you are trying to decide whether to do a short sale, it is worth it with Lisa Stevens and Vibrant Realty. Less ... More

I saw many good reviews online about Lisa while I was looking for a real estate agent. I decide to try her since people around me do not have any recommendations. I never met with Lisa prior to the purchasing of the house. After I sent in an inquiry through her website during the day, Lisa gave me a call on the same day to follow up with me. Lisa was very friendly, helpful, responsible, professional, enthusiastic and passionate. The next day and every day, I received listing of townhomes that fits my criteria. I also talked/met with other real estate agents before I made a final decision to work with Lisa. The reason why I chose Lisa because: 1) She is quick in responding to my emails/ questions, almost right away. 2) She is not afraid of troublesome, that she will help with searching for a townhomes when I did not have a clear idea in which area in specific I am looking for; and when I did not do a preapproval in advance. Some agents I talked to do not bother searching for houses until I do a pre-approval. 3) At the showings, Lisa is very professional, she provided me information about the house (i.e. the history of the house, compare the house that was built by the same builder and among the area), and she will walk you through the house, but not leaving it to yourself and wonder around. 4) Go with the buyer?s interest, negotiate on behalf of me to have the seller pay full closing cost and at the same time keep the purchase price low. On the other hand, the inspector, Guy and loan officer Jackson, Lisa recommended are awesome! Their services are great and at a reasonable price, (It is cheaper compare to others). I did not regret that I chose Lisa and highly recommend her. I will definitely use her again in the future. Less ... More

As a first-time homebuyer, Lisa helped me extensively in making suggestions on where I might be able to make trade-offs without a big impact on my happiness and what it would take to bring a home to the state I wanted it to be (such as building a garage, replacing windows, etc.). During this learning process she patiently took me through a series of houses ranging from foreclosure needing extensive work to short sale to a very updated and move-in ready home until I was comfortable. We discussed the offer and negotiation process in detail and she was able to refer me to knowledgeable and reasonably priced third parties for services such as home inspection and title company. I have been in my home for six years now and it came with the perfect balance of updated vs DIY projects for me (and wonderful neighbors in the Kilmer Pond area of St. Louis Park).

We needed to move from our large house to a rental townhouse which was very stressful and emotional for us. Lisa gave us honest advice which really helped me realize what our true goal was-TO SAVE MONEY! Even though we have had a difficult time adjusting to the smaller space, Lisa and her team did their best to help us make the decisions we had to make and to deal with the negotiations with the owner of our rental. I also had to do a short sale on my house in a very short period of time. This was a difficult process and of course there were many bumps on the way. Whenever I needed to understand something Lisa or Sallie gave me great advice and knew what they were doing which helped me have confidence that I was making the right decision. I appreciated their professionalism and their hard working getting my house sold so quickly. Thanks for all your hard work! Hopefully, in a few years, I'll be looking for a new home and it will be a positive experience this time around and if you're available, I'll like to have you help me with that search as well.

Lisa was very easy to work with, and I really appreciated her effectiveness throughout the process. I had met with another agency before, who showed me a few properties. This other agent could not answer my very basic questions, and didn't provide much information beyond what was shown in the on-line listings. I was also disappointed in the follow-up, so I decided to look elsewhere. I found Lisa's name by checking Zillow reviews. I emailed her, and she got back to me right away. Lisa was very direct, and didn't give me any of the nonsense that I'd heard from the other broker ("if you sign this today ..." or "and you're not just hiring us, we're hiring you too"). She knew everything I wanted to know, or found out quickly. From beginning to end, working with Lisa went very smoothly. Less ... More

I was assisted by Lisa Stevens with the purchase of my property. Ms. Stevens is very competent, talented and professional. She knows the ins and outs of the real estate business well enough to have made my home-buying dream come true. Even though my purchase was a short sale, and even though I have heard that 75% of short sales fall through at closing, I believe that it was Lisa Stevens' efforts which made my experience a success. She managed to work with and negotiate the sale with the banks involved, using her expertise and knowledge of real estate law to my advantage. I can honestly say that, without Lisa Stevens' assistance, I would not be living happily in my beautiful condominium right now. I highly recommend Lisa Stevens to any person in need of home-buying assistance. She is honorable and very knowledgeable about real estate. Furthermore, she is very likeable, responsive, and easy to work with. SM Less ... More

Lisa Stevens has a lot of experience and expertise in this industry and truly knows how to help you sell your home- especially in a short-sale situation. She will negotiate on your part and sell your home, sometimes quickly. It all depends on each situation and the circumstances. She knows who to contact and how to get all of the answers to all of your questions. She is consistently dealing with short-sales and foreclosures. Lisa helped sell my home through a short sale and 2 years later She helped me get into a wonderful home. She is realistic and won't influence you for her benefit. I trust Lisa and believe if you have to short sale your home or are going through a forclosure, she can help you- she is the one that should do it.. If for any reason she can not, she will tell you. She demonstrates extensive knowledge during this process and is completely looking out for the customer and understands and has empathy with people and the situations that they are going through, as opposed to the traditional "money making realtor". She cares about people. She is very personable and down to earth which is why i trusted her, She is very busy due to the economy, so she has lots of work, but she will get through it with you and you will not be on the back burner. She takes care of each situation and views it seriously- not as just a file. Bottom line is, Its hard to keep your home, and her first goal is to help you keep it unless she is certain another alternative is a better one. She will listen to you and work for you. Let her and her team work with you and get you taken care of. Lisa Stevens and her crew sold my home in a short sale situation in less than 4 months which is amazing! I don't doubt that she could sell yours that soon too, however my situation is not like everyone elses. Having realistic expectations in this economy and patience will help this process go easier for you. Lisa Stevens can help! Less ... More

In August of 2012, we met with Lisa to discuss a short sale of our home. For us the process felt completely overwhelming. We didn't even know which beginning steps to take. Lisa literally came to our rescue. She took control of the situation and, with the assistance of her team, had our house listed within the matter of a few days. Within a month of the listing, we had our first offer. At that point, we began working with her assistant Sallie Martin. I do not have enough good and kind words to describe this woman. She held our hand through every step of this process. She negotiated with our first and our second mortgage companies. She put our minds at ease when we didn't understand the process. She guided us along every step of the way. Sallie was prompt in her communications with us and always delightful. Now, five months later, the sale of our home is complete. Sallie negotiated a deal with the lenders that far exceeded our expectations. Even through closing, Lisa and Sallie were there to assure us that everything was being handled. We could go into it with peace of mind. Not only are we very thankful to close this chapter of our lives, we are filled with gratitude for this team of real estate professionals. I would, without an ounce of hesitation, recommend them for a family who find themselves in a similar situation. Thank you! Less ... More

I have used Lisa for 3 years to rent a home that I have in the Lakeville area after I moved out of state. She and her staff have been top notch. She was able to source a number of good potential renters and she helped council me on which one would be best for my property. I've had two small issues that have come up with the property both were handled quickly and to everyone's satisfaction. Being an out of state owner she makes me feel comfortable that my property is being taken care.

Despite a few setbacks from the bank, which is so common in this type of sale, everything was worked out in a timely manner by her team. We are so glad we were referred to Lisa and would recommend her to anyone.

I've purchased and sold a few homes over the years working with Lisa was by far the best experience I've had in the real estate process. I'd purchased a new home shortly before the market crashed, and the buyer of my old home backed out of the deal. I rented the property for a year, but really needed to sell it quickly. Lisa and her team, especially Sallie Martin, were outstanding. Sallie is a great negotiator - she's very professional and also compassionate.

We are first-time home buyers. Lisa had the patience to show us at least 50+ homes in our price range. We really wanted an open floor plan, wood floors, and a big lot, which seemed unlikely in our price range, but she assured us that something would come up and that we would "know" when we found it. She was right. We finally found a great home with an open floor plan and lots of potential. She was jumping up and down before we entered the home to look at it. :-) During the closing process, we learned that the items that needed fixed before closing were not completed. She contacted the seller's realtor to get them done. Honestly, she will turn into a pit bull on your behalf if needed. It was great working with her and it was great knowing she has your back in the whole process. Less ... More

There are so many real estate agents out there to choose from in today?s market but if you are in the market to close on a deal, especially on a short sale that has become a norm these days, you need an agent who is knowledgeable and willing to fight all the issues that come your way. Lisa is absolutely the kind of agent you want on your side. She is extremely knowledgeable about the short sale process, hardworking and always there to talk to you even when she has many other clients she is working with. She got us the house we wanted to buy and during the whole process she stood by us as if she was buying one for herself. She has good connections in the industry that reduces the time and effort normally required to take care of paperwork or get something done. She listens to you and provides guidance but never forces you to take a decision you may not be comfortable with.

We chose to work with Lisa after researching and reading the reviews on her. From day 1, she was nothing less than amazing. First time we went out to look at houses, we were knee deep in thick snow...never cancelled or complained. We looked at over 30 houses and Lisa was nothing but honest with us about quality of the homes and knowledge about the neighborhoods, especially the school systems. We were about to close on a house until we found out they had a second mortgage in which they failed to tell anybody about that killed the deal. Lisa was back out the very next day with us searching once again. 20 or so houses later and we found the one for us. But, once again stupidity followed on the seller?s side. We almost lost another house and in came Super Lisa who figured it all out and actually paid for our loan extension. You tell me one other realtor that would do that for a client. Trusting, reliable, and straight up great at her job does not even begin to describe our dealings with Lisa. She was great with us, stellar with our kids (yes we had to take our small children along to look at houses), and her knowledge and understanding of the buying and selling process is second to none. We can only hope that Lisa is still around in 5 or so years when we look for our dream house. Never once did she try to upsell us on a house and on several occasions she talked us down on several prospective properties. Master of the short sale and bank owned properties; she is there to get the best deal for her client. We can't thank Lisa enough for getting us into our new and lovely home, and at the great deal she got for us. Thanks a billion Lisa! Gary, Deena, Keiley, and Kenzie. Less ... More

Even though she's busy, it still seemed like we were her only clients. If there's a problem with the contract that the seller or listing agent hasn't completed, she turns into a fighter on your behalf, to make sure things get done the way the contract outlines.

I highly recommend Lisa to help with your real estate needs. Lisa helped us to buy our first home and from the beginning, she was very welcoming, understanding, and really did so much work for us. Being our first home (and being new to the Twin Cities), Lisa took us all over town looking in a variety of locations, meanwhile being very understanding when we weren't exactly sure what we wanted. She worked around our busy schedule and made herself extremely available, even just to show us one house (at times on the same day we saw the posting!). We never felt pressured to put that offer in, and didn't for a long time! In the end (and after looking at sooo many homes), we found the perfect one that Lisa helped us to negotiate a spectacular deal on. Also, I wanted to add that she has extensive knowledge on home structure and maintenance, she really helped to explain things to us that we never knew to look for. And, she had great advice on how to get repairs accomplished. Go with Lisa! You won't regret it. Not only was she so valuable to our home buying process, but she has become a friend. Less ... More

Lisa keeps her word, she truly cares about doing the right thing for her clients, and she is an experienced "bulldog" when she goes to bat for her clients. Lisa works tirelessly for her clients, often a the expense of her own free time. She is an inspiration to me and to all who know her & have worked with her. Lisa Stevens is the only real estate professional that my family will ever TRUST with all of our future real estate transactions. Less ... More
