At the outset, I have to say I think most realtors don’t deserve a commission. The Zinn family (Carl, Ali, Hans, Max & Jenny) are the absolute exception. They earned every penny of their commission in stark contrast to prior experiences. They listen, they know the market, they work hard, they actually do open houses and work leads by having conversations and don’t just rely on website marketing, they are experienced and have outstanding judgment, guidance, and wisdom. They are a pleasure to interact with and most of all they are effective!

The Zinn Family Realtors are the best choice for Lake Minnetonka area home sellers. Their local market expertise and deep experience combined with a high level of customer service made my home sale process a pleasure - and successful. Their breadth of listings translates into extensive marketing programs across direct mail, circulars and social media and their strong brand awareness and reputation assure readership and engagement. I highly recommend the Zinn Family when it’s time to sell your home.

The Zinn family is The Best In Class team of professional Realtors that sold our home in the winter "off season" after it sat on the market for 6 months with another realtor. We were stressed out after purchasing another home in May, moving in July and then sitting on two mortgages for several months. We finally decided to make a switch in realtors and ended up with Zinn through their amazing support of Minnetonka Schools and Minnetonka Athletics. They came in as a full service selling team and offered great feedback with their elite expertise in interior design, staging, real estate pricing and over all market knowledge. They are extremely connected with other realtors and families both in the area, and those who were relocating to our area. We had more open houses in the first three weeks, than we did all summer with our previous realtors and very quickly had interest from a qualified buyer. They marketed our house in an beautiful, assertive, and professional manner- they definitely invested in selling our home. They actually made selling our house a fun experience for us! Once we had the best offer, they were all over making sure all the details were considered and finalized every aspect of closing the deal. They not only are the best in their field here in the Minnetonka and Western suburbs in selling homes quickly and for great value, but they are a really great family who we will consider friends forever. They didn't look at us as a number or a dollar sign, but really treated us with very special attention and made the entire experience a delightful one. We just wish we signed up with the Zinn family in the first place! Carl, Ali, Max, Hans and Jenny are now our realtor of choice for any future moves- buying or selling- Plus we give them our highest recommendation to our family and friends. Thank you.

The Zinn Family Realtors CB are a wonderful agents. Carl Zinn and his wife Ali helped us buy our home in Excelsior, Minnesota. Carl & Ali were very knowledgeable, communicative and personable. They were always responsive to any of our questions, whenever we needed them. Immediate response on both e-mails and texts - impressive. Both of them worked very hard, paid attention to all the details, and were always on top of everything from our first meeting until after closing. They were very professional, and with high integrity. Carl and Ali patiently explained to us with different options, provided us invaluable advice, guided us in our best interest every step of the way. The communication and professionalism does not end when you sign on the line and buy the home. We were a long distance move and the house remained vacant for a few months while we were transitioning to Excelsior. Carl continued to watch over the house, pick up our mail, etc. We also had many questions after closing that we had about the area. Carl is so informative about the area and is so willing to share his information. This is a great family business!!!

We've used Zinn Family Realtors twice, eight years apart. In the intervening time many friends and neighbors did also. Whether you're buying, selling, or just looking for advice, Carl and his cI have now bought and sold 4 homes with the Zinns and have been pleased with every transaction. I currently have another property listed with them. Fantastic family business.rew are the go to guys in the area. They knew the back story of almost every house we looked at when we were buying (having helped buy or sell a remarkable number of them), and just from their Rolodex brought multiple buyers when we were selling. Nobody knows this are better than Zinn Family, and nobody could have been more pleasant and professional to work with.

My wife and I had the opportunity to work with Hans while selling our house in Deephaven and finding a new home in Edina. He took the time to fully understand our expectations and was incredibly hands on during every step of the process. We feel very confident that he helped us receive full value for the house we sold and that we paid no more than fair market value for the amazing home he found for us. We simply wouldn't work with anyone else. Hans and his family are the best.

Thank you for the wonderful job you did from start to finish in listing, selling and closing on our house. You are a real pro, and most importantly, a fine person. We will continue to be enthusiastic ambassadors on your behalf.

I want to thank you once again for handling our Minnesota housing needs. You and your associates were extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with.

With some thirty years of experience in the worlds of management, finance, consulting, marketing and similar pursuits, I have rarely encountered the dedication and care you applied to the unglamorous task of selling our home, particularly in a market as difficult as the past year has been
