About John Petersen

Fiduciary responsibility, expert local knowledge, media savvy and a professional commitment to each client, is the essence of what I offer.

With a background in Biomedical Engineering and International Sales & Marketing, I really enjoy being a full-time REALTOR. It gives me purpose and pride when assisting clients from my initial orientation/assessment all the way to the closing table. I find it humanly rewarding assisting my clients finding their home when buying and/or optimizing their value plus outstanding marketing, when they are selling. To me it is always personal the very reason for a successful referral based real-estate business.

Buying or selling a home is a complex process where the proactive and professional Realtor plays a fundamental role. It’s important to fully understand the details of the home buying and selling processes correctly navigating and employing the right contract documentation and verbiage while also understanding the intricacies of related financing options.

To show or list a home, is the part of our job that most can do. On the other hand, few have the negotiation skills required to get the best possible deal for a client or the marketing experience required to present a property properly. Further, a proactive and good Realtor, will detect and solve potential complications and conflicts before they become a real problems. I know how to deal with people and technology, get the best deal, create the best exposure for your listing, solve potential conflicts along the way and finalize a satisfactory closing.

Before I became a Realtor, I worked professionally in sales and marketing within the medical equipment industry, domestically and internationally. My experiences in management, sales and marketing, contract negotiation and project management, combined with a pragmatic hands-on approach and in-depth knowledge of the real estate business – is what enables me to assist you in a professional capacity.

Besides English, I am a fluent native level Spanish, German and Danish / Scandinavian speaker, with knowledge of some other related languages. I am originally from Denmark, where I graduated as an Electronic Engineer, but I also have roots in Minnesota and I have lived in and out of the USA most of my adult life.

Mission Statement:

My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients.
