Alicia and her assistant Carrie made the home buying process very easy to understand! As first time home buyers, we had many questions and concerns along the way; Alicia and Carrie were very patient and clearly explained everything. They were available and flexible with our own crazy schedule! I would highly recommend Alicia Lokke to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Alicia helped us buy our first home, which can be very scary. She made the process clear to us and helped us along every step. She also had the tools to help us with e-sign, making it easier for us to review and sign any offers or updates. She continues to follow up with us today, making sure we are happy with our new home!

Without a doubt, Alicia is the best possible realtor for facilitating life changing moves for seniors. My aunt is 86 years old, lived in the same house for more than 60 years, and relocated to Chicago to be near us. Alicia was our right hand person in guiding us, and marketing her property - since we were out of the area. She is professional, hard-working, pleasant, and experienced. My wife and I have bought and sold 6 properties in our 32 years of marriage. We have seen good realtors and bad. Alicia is top shelf. I couldn't recommend her more. Less ... More

Everything that I needed to feel comfortable about buying my first home, Alicia was able to provide. She was always easy to contact and was very fast at finding answers to any questions I had throughout the process. I'm glad I chose Alicia and would recommend her to others.

Alicia was awesome helping us buy our first home. She has incredible attention to detail, was extremely helpful with all the questions we had, and never pressured us. She always responded to my calls/emails/texts in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Alicia's services. In addition to outstanding knowledge of this business and its nuances, she knows the area very well and gave us excellent recommendations for dinner and amusement while we were visiting and it was a blast. Overall, she kept the whole process very smooth and stress free, which I thought would be impossible since I didn't live in Duluth at the time. We originally found her through one of these real estate websites, and didn't know we would get such a gem of a person! Thanks Alicia for all your help - we love our new house!!! Less ... More

We are in the process of relocating to Duluth from the Chicago area. I contacted Alicia and she was very timely in her response and willingness to meet with myself, my husband, and our two teenage sons while we were in the area on a house hunting trip. She was thorough, patient, extremely professional and knowledgeable. Our day was well planned out with viewings of a variety of homes and locations. She even brought snacks for our family!! We finally settled on a home that was for sale by owner which meant more work for Alicia as she navigated paperwork for the sellers and us (who had to sign everything electronically from Chicago). She even helped facilitate a deal for a rental home to allow us to move to Duluth immediately until we close on our permanent home. We have worked with many realtors in Houston, S. Florida, Chicago, and even Singapore and Alicia is by far one of our favorites to work with! When it comes time to sell our house we will happily use Alicia again. I can't recommend her highly enough!! Less ... More

Alicia was an incredible resource and guide in buying our first home! She worked around our schedules when we wanted to view a property. She assisted in quick negotiations when the property we fell in love with almost went off the market. And she walked us through the many little steps that co.e between the accepted offer and signing the closing papers. Our successful home purchase is largely due to Alicia and when/if the time comes again to sell and buy we would be lucky to have her as our realtor. Less ... More

I have owned my house in Duluth since 2003, and previously tried to sell it to no avail. The realtors I have hired in the past have done things such as left my back door unlocked, left the garage door open, and showed no motivation in the sale of my house. I have lived in California for the past year as my home has been rented, and had no idea what kind of shape my home was in and what needed to be fixed when listing it. Alicia was more than spectacular through the whole process of selling my home. She not only assisted me with preparing my home to sell, but also made the entire process stress free. For the many small fix it projects, cleaning of the house to prepare it to list, and maintaining the lawn she knew just who to call. Every week she emailed me the progress of the showings and kept me up to date on what people were saying after showings. After the inspection she was able to put me in contact with wonderful people who expedited what needed to be fixed. Being so far away I could have never accomplished this with such ease. Alicia was invaluable in the sale of my home. I could not have found a more wonderful realtor to sell my home. Less ... More

Alicia is a very good listener. She is patient and will always do the right thing. Her ethics are number 1. She worked with me for a full year in order to find the right place. She was effective in doing the paper work, being able to use electronic forms was very convenient since I was not always in Duluth to sign documents. She worked with the other agent to negotiate a great deal on my behalf. She took the time to check in person, on the progress inside the house, to make sure that all the repairs due to be done before close were done. She provided various mortgage brokers within Duluth to facilitate qualification process with local market knowledge. She is very quick at responding by text, email and phone at any time of the day. She gets the details done so you don't have to. Great service. Thank you. Less ... More

I have asked Alicia twice to help me sell and buy a home; in 2007 and 2013! I appreciate professionalism throughout the whole process of selling my home and buying a new home. For the customer, it can be a stressful and often emotional process. Alicia listened to my needs and worked with me until she knew I was satisfied with the bottom line. Alicia stayed connected with me throughout the buying and selling process; I felt she was on top of all the details all the time. I like how Alicia is so personable and easy to relate to, yet she is extremely knowledgeable about the complications real estate and well connected to other colleagues in the field. I would recommend her for sure to anyone thinking of starting the process! Less ... More

Working with Alicia was an absolute joy from start to finish during the sale of our home. She was knowledgeable, professional, kind, attentive and made herself available with little to no notice. She used a number of marketing tactics to ensure that our home sale was well advertised. We received a great offer within days of being on the market, and the closing went quickly and smoothly. We enjoyed our experience so much that we utilized her services once again when we made our land purchase. I would (and do) recommend Alicia to anyone I know. Listing with her was one of the best decisions our family ever made! Less ... More

Alicia is fantastic. Alicia helped our family sell and buy our dream home. She was extremely helpful during a very stressful time in our life. She always made herself available to us and explained things very thoroughly in a way that we understood. She never made us feel like we were bothering her. In fact, we felt like her only clients even though we knew she was extremely busy. You will trust Alicia and likely become fast friends. No need to waste time speaking with anyone else; she's the best of the best. Less ... More

Alicia Lokke was very patient when it came to us buying our house. We had to sell in another state and move before we could buy. She kept us in the loop with house possibilities in the meantime, and took my husband out too look at the areas and houses prior to our family moving from out of state. We always felt she gave us her time and expertise. Alicia definitely knew her way around Duluth, and when we did find our house she negotiated and went above and beyond to get us what was fair and to where we needed to be. I would positively give Alicia Lokke 5 STARS and recommend her to anyone in the market to purchase a home ! Less ... More

My husband's work took us 1200 miles away and we decided it was time to sell our house in Duluth. Alicia worked with him when he bought it and wanted to work with her to sell it. She went above and beyond helping us with a pretty difficult situation. She was an absolute Godsend. We were amazed and impressed by her! If we were to ever buy or sell there again, we would not want to work with anyone else.

From our first meeting until the day we moved into our house, Alicia was very involved in our buying process and always available to answer questions. She really took time to get to know us and what we were looking for. She has a number of reliable, professional contacts who helped us along the way. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. She added extra touches that we've never experienced with other realtors. She made us feel like we were her only buyers.

When it comes to real estate agents, Alicia is as good as it gets. She is focused, sensible and sharp. A few months ago, my husband and I decided to relocate to Duluth from North Carolina. We knew we needed a real estate agent and found Alicia on Zillow. She called back right away. We told her we were coming to Duluth in a couple of weeks and could only spend a couple of days looking for a house. She did a thorough needs analysis, pinpointing the neighborhood that would work best for us and lining up appointments to see houses that met our very particular specifications. When we walked through potential homes, she was extremely knowledgeable about everything we should consider inside and outside of each house. When we picked a house and needed help with a couple of projects, she knew exactly who we should contact to get the jobs done quickly and at an affordable price. Finally, she made herself available if we had any questions after the sale and checked back with us a couple of times to make sure we were settling in ok. She really went the extra mile to give us outstanding service. Simply put, Alicia rocks! Less ... More

Let me start by saying that we were leery to use an agent as we had been burned by one before. That being said, Alicia helped us purchase a home in Hermantown and she was a rock star!!! We were moving from out of the area and had a very tight time frame-only two days to find a house and make an offer. To complicate matters, we had contacted another agent (before Alicia) who went dark on us a few days before our trip to view listings. Alicia stepped right in with great showings and even got us a referral for a better financing package for the house we desired. I can't stress enough how responsive she was to our calls and making sure everything stayed on schedule. Closing went without a hitch. I would not hesitate to recommend Alicia to anyone looking to buy a house in the Duluth area. Less ... More

I bought my first home in 2011 with very specific architectural, neighborhood, price, design and utilities constraints. This was during the post real estate melt down that resulted in very difficult mortgage approval processes. Without Alicia I would have never landed my current home that exceeded all my desires. Alicia devoted significant time, expertise and her networked resources to identify and show the right homes, helped me navigate the intensely complex approval process, and served as my advocate during negotiations with the seller and bank. More importantly she always made me feel like I was her only client, and kept me engaged even when I thought I would not land the home. Her dedication, knowledge, personal touch and consistency ensured that I will always leverage her services when buying or selling property in MN or WI which I will continue to do for many years.

Buying a home in a strange town is tough enough. Dealing with all the red tape of a rental property is even more perplexing. I can't say enough about how well Alicia Lokke guided me through the process and looked out for my interest. As if that wasn't enough, and because I don't live in Duluth, Alicia went over and above anything I could have expected after the sale to help me find new tenants and make the transition go smoothly. For me she was not just a great, knowledgeable and patient real estate agent, but a life saver with her after-sale assistance. I would gladly recommend Alicia to any of my friends. Thank you, Alicia.

Alicia is by far the most knowledgeable real estate agent I have ever known. On several occasions I have needed real estate advice and knew exactly who would have the answers. To have someone that can help make sense of all the confusing aspects of buying/selling a house is such a relief when making such huge decisions. She is highly recommended.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Alicia went through my home and gave me a list of things to do to help achieve a quicker sale and a better price. I am still working on the list and hope to put the home up for sale by the end of the summer. I have known her for approximately eight years and she is truly an agent that goes the extra mile for her customers. She knows the business and the right people that can help make selling or buying your home less stressful.
