Some people have hearts of gold, then there are people like Kara Zahasky. Her heart went triple platinum like a Michael Jackson album in the 80’s. She is even more beautiful on the inside than she is out and she is simply and utterly amazing in every way. She makes you feel like you’re special. More than that, I don’t think she’s trying to do it. I think she genuinely feels like everyone she meets and interacts with is special and important. She is an absolute world class human and anyone blessed to work with her is in for a special experience. 5 Stars just isn’t enough. She needs like 95 more. Kara is just the best.
It took awhile for my husband and I to write a review because it was hard to find the most amazing words to describe our Realtor, Jona.
We met her over a year in the Summer of 2019. She kept calling my husband asking if he was looking to sell. Deep down he was but wasn’t quite ready yet. She kept pushing him but in the best way and had herself and team ready to go.
My husband ended up selling his townhouse in Inver Grove Heights and we were looking for a house around the same area due to distance of our jobs.
Jona was the most outstanding, detailed, friendly and we started to call her “Our Pitbull Realtor and our Firecracker Realtor” because she always was happy to give us a home to love! Jona and her time actually listened to what we wanted, what we needed and always called us with ideas of where to look and apps to download.
She even sent a Sympathy care when my father passed, what other realtor would do that!?! She would always have a plan for us on what houses she was going to show us.
She finally said, “You guys should just build a house”. We were like ” We’re not rich. We could never afford that”. But it was the best decision we ever had. She gave us that idea!!!
She was spot on with our budget, location and everything! She came with us to pick out our flooring, paint, cabinets, etc! She was always there along with Sarah!
We needed help moving from our storage unit, she says ” I have some guys that can do that”. We needed help with our lawn and landscaping, she says, ” I already added that in your budget and this is what you guys will get.”
She had a plan for every little thing and was always ready to help with any planning! We needed her along the way otherwise we would have never made it so beautiful and perfect!
She was our realtor, accountant, co-pilot in building and ended up being our friend!
So, not only did our family and cats get the best home, we have a friend for life along with her team!

Will and Sarah have been extremely helpful in both buying and selling our homes. About two years ago when my husband and I were relocating to a new state, Sarah looked at multiple (and I’m talking like 20+) houses with my husband even though I was unable to be there. Sarah went above and beyond and went back to houses that my husband liked and FaceTimed me through the houses so I could get a feel for the property! When we still didn’t find exactly what we were looking for, Sarah endured another long day of looking at 10+ houses with the both of us until we found the perfect one! She never complain and was always so helpful and honest with us when walking through houses. You could tell she was truly on our side and not just in it to sell a house.
Fast forward almost two years when it came time to sell our home and we knew without a doubt that Sarah and Will were the ones we wanted by our side through the process! They came to us so prepared with similar properties in our area and what they sold for in order to price our house competitively. They gave us all the right recommendations to get our house ready to sell and worked with us to make sure everything was easy and convenient for us! Within two days: SOLD! Easy peasy. On top of being great at what they do, they are so friendly and responsive to any and all questions! I would recommend these two over and over again to anyone!
Jess is a business professional that will help you find your dream home. She will work hard for you and find you exactly what you’re looking for. You will not be disappointed with her.
I have known Kara professionally and personally for probably the bulk of our life. I do not know another realtor as responsive and professional as she. Her dedication to your needs will be as though your sale or home purchase is her own.
Kara is amazing! I know I wouldn’t hesitate to have her help me if I was moving and needed a new place. No doubt she will do all she can to help you. With Kara you are in great hands!
Jona gets it done! And not JUST in a timely fashion— she is on top of it. Anything we needed was practically taken care of for us before we could feel the stress of it. She’s an honest and hard worker and an extremely resourceful realtor. Any time we needed Jona, she was there in person as quickly as possible supporting us however we needed. Our home needed work done on the inside & outside before it could be sold and Jona connected with contractors and made sure the work was done quickly, efficiently, and RIGHT. I 100 percent recommend Jona to others! She never disappoints. -@Sissonje07
Our former neighbors referred us to Jona. She was their realtor when they sold their home and said she would handle everything, make the process stress-free and as easy as possible. They were absolutely spot on.
We were impressed as soon as we met Jona. We were starting to get down on the process of selecting an agent and all of the work we had to do in order to sell our home, especially since we were now 4 hours away but when she arrived her excitement and enthusiasm was contagious and we were excited again about selling.
Unlike the other agents, she arrived with data metrics not just for the Minneapolis market but for our neighborhood. She explained the process from beginning to end on what needed to be done, how long it would take, what to expect and cost. She didn’t miss a detail. She repeatedly told us she would handle everything, not to worry and she did! She was in constant contact with us and when we had a question, she responded immediately.
She understood it was our home and not just a house we were selling. We don’t know how we would have done it without Jona. She was amazing, no maybe about it or as my husband said, “She was rockin’ awesome!”
We are beyond happy with the excellent service Jona provide us throughout listing and purchasing a home. Jona goes above and beyond to satisfy her clients in the forms of providing before hand knowledge of the homes we went to look at, informing us things to look for when buy a house and possible things we could negotiated. Jona is very transparent and fun to work with. She likes to get to know you and your family also given us unexpected gifts but we truly treasure. Im glad she came to knock on our door! She is hands down the best outstanding professional realtor. Love to work with her in the future. -@DanielaEstrada16
I had the best experience with Will and Sarah as a first time home buyer. With a baby on the way, there was a tight deadline and specific funds set aside. They were so patient as we realized the properties in our target area weren’t quite right for us and we went in a completely different direction. Their responsiveness and expertise is the only reason we were able to find our perfect starter home, just in time and right on budget. Through the past few years, I am more thankful for the experience as we have seen our equity and home value grow. Now we have another new addition and are gearing up to partner with Will and Sarah again! -@cat lemke
When it comes to realtors, you cannot go wrong with Jona! She’s knowledgeable, has excellent negotiation skills and is very responsive. We’re first time home buyers and she guided us through the process with great ease and confidence. Highly recommend her to anybody looking for an experienced realtor that knows what they’re doing! -@Morida Soun
Jona is an excellent real estate professional. She is extremely knowledgeable. We were not the easiest buyers (seeing almost 70 homes). Jona remained patient and understanding even when we were ready to abandon the process and sleep in the car. She is so funny and short, LOL but a force to be reckoned with. I have already recommended her to some of my friends and we just sold/purchased 2 weeks ago. Thanks Jona! -@Brittney Fennie
We’ve had great experiences with Jona! She is very hardworking, responsive, knowledgable, and she really takes care of business. She has sold 2 of our homes in the past month and she is extremely helpful during the entire process. She will go above and beyond to help, she even helped us with an issue we had with our association and their mess of an accounting department. She straightened it out quickly and helped us get past what could have been a disaster.
She is very business-minded but also very down to earth and is very willing to answer any questions we’ve had along the way. We highly recommend Jona and would definitely hire her again for another sale or house purchase! Thank you.
I met Dena through a friend and am very glad I did. From the start she was very helpful and did a great job explaining the process. She answered all my questions/ concerns and within a few days of listing the property we had an offer for full price! I was moving out of state during this time and Dena kept me informed and up to date until the closing. It was a very easy process for me thanks to Dena and would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. -@ttamnoskcaj
Tyler Walen did a fantastic job helping me buy a home. As a first time home buyer I knew nothing about the process or what to look for in a house. Tyler helped teach me about the process and explained it to me each step along the way. Throughout countless tours he was never pushy about jumping into a house rather pushed me to only buy a house that would fit me and me only. When I would reach out at odd hours asking question he was always ready to respond. When going through the ups and downs of offering and buying houses I would highly recommend Tyler Walen. He got me my first house for a steal of a deal. Never would go to any other realtor but Tyler.
Trish is the best!! So helpful and made our home buying experience so easy!
KARA ZAHASKY is off the charts good. Professional, responsive, and an excellent communicator. And she is willing to offer challenging suggestions and think outside the box. Her guidance and work helped improve the sale price by easily a hundreds of thousands of dollars for much less cost than that. I would work with her every time if circumstances allow.
Tyler Walen with RE/MAX Results : A Good Life Group helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first house. Tyler listened to our needs and wants, answered all of our questions, and made the whole process enjoyable. I would recommend any of my friends and family to Tyler as he is very knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients.
Will and his associates did everything in their power to make sure that our first time buying a home was as painless and stress-free as possible! Highly recommend giving them a shot! -@ajvolk86
We could not have been more lucky to have Jona as our realtor. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area we lived in and knew exactly how to price our home and if any changes were needed before listing the home on the market. Jona and her team made everything very easy, fast and convenient for us. Jona is friendly, intelligent, goal-oriented and she has been very responsive – always ready to help with any questions or concerns. She had great advice and insight related to the whole home sale process and we always trusted her advice. We could not recommend her more and wish we had her as our realtor in the other state we moved to. Thank you. -@miranda1017
We had such a great experience working with Jona! Very knowledgeable and personable. She sold our townhouse while we were on vacation. Then when we got back, she helped us get our home we wanted! Assisted with the whole buying process including the renovations we wanted. I would do it all over again with Jona! Such a smooth and stress free experience. even after the process was over, she was still available for any questions we had. Thanks for everything Jona! -@katrina nooner
Jona is hard working, very responsive and professional. She is very knowledgeable of the entire process of selling (and buying) a home. She has gone above and beyond our expectations, as she assisted tremendously in dealing with an issue we were having with our HOA where they were trying to foreclose on our property without merit or any due diligence on their part. She was able to help resolve that and we were able to sell the home without any issues.
She also just has a great way of taking care of business. When selling our homes, inevitably there were issues that needed to be addressed which were discovered by the maintenance workers. These fixes could be time consuming and costly, but Jona always had it under control and by the time we were aware of the needed fixes, she would have a person(s) lined up with a quote in place, and with very little lead time. We needed a new water heater – done. We needed some furnace updates and repairs – done. We needed plumbing work – done.
We hired Jona and her team for the sale of 2 houses and both homes sold within 48 hours of hitting the market. We really have no complaints and would be happy to work with Jona and her team again! Highly recommended! -@jmhareid4
