Our Clients Say it Best.

To continually improve our service, we frequently ask our clients to provide feedback about the quality and delivery of the service we provide. Below are just a few testimonials about FirstService Residential Minnesota from some of our homeowner and Board Member clients living in the communities we manage throughout the Twin Cities.
 

"The attention and responsiveness of FirstService Residential is near-flawless - and in a good and friendly spirit, especially by our property manager." Treasurer, Condominium Association
“I have been in two communities with property managers – one with FirstService and the other with another company. I had water leak into one unit and in the other I am President of the Board. In neither case have I seen anything even approaching the level of responsiveness and communication that I have experienced with you and your staff following the unfortunate event in our unit. It seems so simple – but for some reason only you have had a form to send out to affected owners outlining procedure and responsibility. Only you have shared (or even had) a weekly report on actions taken. Anne and I are greatly impressed with the professionalism of the service you provide.” Homeowner, Condominium Association

"I had the pleasure of working very closely with Dennis during the management transition. He took on a very bitter and jaded Board of Directors, who down deep, disputed the change, expected that FirstService would be just like the last one, or worst. Dennis has proved all of us wrong. He has done the detailed homework to provide pricing options at the meetings, followed up on open issues without being reminded, and offered unrequited options to help us make decisions. Please accept this letter as my endorsement for Dennis. He is a true professional and a gentleman. I will always appreciate his calm influence during very highly charged emotional times at our association." President Master Planned Community

"I want to commend you on the fine job you're doing managing our community. You treat it like it's your own home!!" Board Member, Master Planned Community
Woodbury
"I just wanted to talk to you about Sandra. She is such a great employee and wanted to just give her a quick shout out. I feel like sometimes management only hears complaints but I also like to reach out to give compliments and in this case she definitely deserves it. I am sure you are probably already very aware but she is just a completely outstanding employee. I can be kind of a needy customer sometimes and she doesn’t bat an eye. She is always quick to respond to emails, always has a smile on her face and never makes me feel like I am inconveniencing her. Her communication skills are untouched. She just always seems to go above and beyond. If she doesn’t have the answer, SHE WILL GET IT. This is the type of employee I would want working for me!" Homeowner, Condominium Association
"You do such a wonderful job at updating us with information. You go beyond with your work by always smiling, and making everyone feels good to be home after a long and hard day of work. Thank you for always being on top and taking care of the responsibility of the condo, keeping it clean and safe for all of us. You are always willing to take that extra step, every time when I ask for information, you don't just tell me, you walk with me, and show me where, and what to do." Homeowner, Condominium Association

"It is nice to have a community association company now in charge of us that actually cares." Homeowner, Master Planned Community

I want to let all of you know how fantastically we are being served! Our manager has done so much to keep us running and to keep us up to date on all of the hiccups that occur in condo management. There has been a big increase in both concern and service since she inherited us! Last night we received the first notebook ever received by a board member! The extensive packet we get for each board meeting is new! I thank you so much! Homeowner, Townhome Association
Golden Valley
I live in North Loop and am frequently asked by friends and colleagues looking to move to the neighborhood how happy I am. I always tell them I couldn't be happier. I originally chose my place back in 2010 because of their nice pet friendly atmosphere - they allowed 2 dogs, and at the time no other association permitted more than 1. Since then my reasons for enjoying my loft have grown and I know I made the right decision to purchase my home here. Much of what I continue to love about it, beyond the location, is the reasonableness of the HOA dues. There have been some nice investments made in our community like an amazing fitness facility in my building. I believe they negotiate well on our behalf to offer cost effective services like cable and internet. And, our HOA Board and property management company both really do a fine job communicating with residents. What I truly love most is how well the properties are maintained and managed by our caretakers. I think they do a fabulous job of making sure the residents are happy. It is always so clean it looks like it was just built. It is seriously immaculate and it makes such a difference to see how much pride the caretakers have in keeping everything running so smoothly. I have never seen a dirty hallway or remnants of a wild party. I like that I can bring professional friends and family over anytime and be proud of where I live. It's also great when an emergency arises to have on-call help available in the building, which I have needed a few times. Homeowner, Condominium Association

"This letter is long overdue on my part extolling the professionalism and follow-through that our Property Manager exhibits on a consistent basis. I have never requested information or services without a quick and detailed response. Generally her work is superb and without missing the finer details that are often needed. I find her communication skills to be well-honed and honest in nature. This really makes her a people person well-suited for her position. She is a person of integrity. She works tirelessly meeting the expressed needs of owners and renters alike. I would imagine she demonstrates the same in interactions with other staff, vendors and service providers...I appreciate the breadth and scope of knowledge and information she shares with others." Resident, Condominium Association

"Thank you for your active engagement since you've taken the role. It's been the best I've seen for this community since the last three years we've been here. I've been meaning to send a thank you note but hadn't gotten around to it till now." Homeowner, Townhome Association

Wow, what a high level of service, I hope that is a portent of what FirstService [Residential] provides. Wow, that’s just outstanding service so I didn’t want your efforts to go unacknowledged..." Homeowner, New Condo Association

I look forward to interacting with you and learning from your expertise. THANK YOU!" Homeowner, Condo Association

"Wow, eight years in this development and I’ve never seen a meeting without any mud-slinging… and it ended in half the time! I didn’t get a chance to thank you personally for putting up with all of us, and still performing your job with grace. Thanks for all you do… Great job!" Homeowner, Townhome Association
