“Fantastic experience! Glenn is highly organized, a great communicator, with outstanding follow-through, and he’s a wonderful person. Through both the buy of a new home, and sale of our old home, he kept us up to speed every step of the way. We always knew what we needed to do, or what to expect, well in advance. He also told us the truth, even when we didn’t want to hear it. It enabled us to effectively deal with anything that came our way. We absolutely picked the right person to help us. Glenn is a true professional in every way! Thank you Glenn!”   - Rick and Barb C. (Dec 2018)

"I give the professionals at Necklen & Oakland my highest recommendation. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Twin Cities... hire the best team.

They also helped me through the entire closing process.   - Paul and Eileen (Sept 2016)


"Glenn was our representative in the sale of our town home and purchase of our new home. He did a great job coaching us on the sale of our town home and helped us price it right. His recommendations and staging consultant helped us sell within a week in a bad seller's market. On the buy side, he helped us find a new build opportunity in a desirable location and kept in constant contact with the builder to get us in. There was a buyer in front of us who backed out and Glenn's persistence got us the home. It was a great experience and we'd highly recommend Glenn to anyone."   - Jeff I. (July 2016)

"Glenn was fabulous to work with as our agent.  He is excellent at communication and made us feel informed about the entire process.  Having him represent us was the best decision for selling our home." - Julie S (April 2016)


"Glenn was our most recent realtor for the home we purchased one year ago. Glenn was so enjoyable to work with -- he made what can be a stressful, time-consuming and laborious process a fun and enjoyable one. He was very patient - we thought we knew what we wanted, but he was unbelievably insightful based on our reactions when looking at homes and eventually we were looking at the homes that had great potential. He also is a great teacher - he was always ensuring we were thinking about the factors when buying a home (the lot, school district, neighborhood, etc) - things we would have otherwise ignored or not made informed decisions on. Glenn has continued to stay in touch with us after the sale - he truly wants his clients to be happy and it shows! We never felt pressure to make a decision or move faster than we were comfortable with. Glenn is very professional with high integrity and like I said, very fun to work with. Should we ever move again, Glenn is our guy, no question about that"   - Mike M. (April 2016)


"I am not sure if there is any other real estate service company I enjoy working with more than Necklen & Oakland. Great people, friendly, personable, knowledgeable and always spot on with their tasks and keeping me well informed as we progress through the closing process. You are not just another number when it comes to working with them and to boot they are the best business! The owners Glenn and Joel run an exceptional company and the whole Necklen & Oakland team are not only great to work with but they make the home buying process fun & exciting."   - Gabe T. (March 2016)


"We have worked with Necklen & Oakland, and they do a wonderful job serving their clients. They are very attentive and service oriented and always go above and beyond. If you want your home sold this is the team."   - Louis D. (Feb 2016)


"We are writing this to anyone considering working with Glenn.  We highly recommend hiring him to sell your home. He was a true professional throughout the entire process.  He had our best interests in mind at all times. We recommend him without hesitation." - Susan and Rich T. (Feb 2016)


"Glenn is a consummate professional. Possessed of both an ardent client-advocacy outlook as well as a results-oriented drive, he is a standout among his peers. Having dealt with many real estate agents in the last several years, I believe Glenn has shown himself to be the essence of a trustworthy professional in a highly contentious industry."   - Zachary R. (Nov 2015)


"Glenn did an awesome job for us when we were looking for a home. He is very knowledgeable about many different areas/cities/communities in and around the twin cities. He is extremely helpful when looking at what is truly important in a home. Communication is very important to me and Glenn hit a home run here as he always kept in touch with us on what was going on (even during “non business hours/days”). I would trust Glenn to work with any of my friends, or family, and would use him again if needed!"   - Brenda D. (Sept 2015)


"I have worked with Glenn since 2005 first as the administrator on his Real Estate team and currently as a Realtor in his Brokerage. Glenn is an excellent businessman. He utilizes cutting edge technology both with his own clients and with the company. He cares about the people he works with - keeping the end result a satisfied client. I would highly recommend Glenn for any Real Estate transaction."   - Ellen S. (Aug 2015)


"I have used Glenn to sell both of my houses over the last ten years. Glenn's understanding of the market and where we could price our houses during the high and the lows allowed us to get our maximum value without having the house on the market too long. He is friendly and a joy to work with."   - Paul H. (July 2015)
