    Buying your first home can be extremely overwhelming. Add working with the VA home loan process, it can be very intimidating. Jeff’s years of experience in Real Estate shines. One of his many skills is being well versed in the VA home loan process. With his knowledge and Cash Back to Heroes you can’t ask for a better and smoother process. When my worrying was getting the best of me he said, “let me do the worrying for you.” Jeff always kept me informed step by step in the process. He was always honest and real with me when we did showings and gave me advice as if I were family. He treats you like family…and when you’re family, you look out for their best interests.

    I have been in my home for a year now… and it still feels surreal for me. Being in the Army for nearly 10 years, I am used to moving around and living out of boxes and never fully settling anywhere. As I settle in putting roots down, decorate my home, and make dinner… I have moments and look around and still get butterflies that it is my home, my castle. I truly can never thank you enough Jeff!






    A good friend referred us to Jeff, and we’re so glad they did! We were first time homebuyers, and had NO CLUE what we were doing! From the minute we met Jeff, we knew that we were in good hands. After the first evening of looking at homes together, Jeff knew exactly what we wanted, and guided us through the rest of the process! When contacting Jeff with questions or concerns – he was very quick to respond to our needs. Jeff also referred wonderful inspection, and appraisal companies to us! The whole experience went as smoothly as possible, even down to the closing! He even offered to borrow us his ladder while moving! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and wouldn’t hesitate for a second to work with Jeff again, or refer him to anyone! We are so grateful!

    After recently moving to the Twin Cities, we decided it was time to find our home. With the help of Jeff Anderson, we were able to move into our home in a timely fashion. Throughout the journey, Jeff was personable, efficient, and timely with the utmost attention to detail in the process. His professionalism is unquestionable. An unexpected bonus is the Cash Back to Heroes program, as well as the honor he shows in his business and personal life to military servicemen and women. We would recommend Jeff Anderson without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will not be disappointed.

    We were both new to the home buying process, but that didn’t matter because Jeff was there to take care of us. He helped explain every single step so we understood and he helped make sure we got the best deal possible. He was quick to respond to every text and email we sent regardless of what time it was. He was very flexible and was able to accommodate our busy schedules when meeting with us. His experience and knowledge helped us determine if we had chosen the right home and he helped us feel confident during the negotiation process. Jeff is more than an agent, he is a friend.

    Cash Back to Heroes program also helped save us a lot of money. If you are considering buying a home and you qualify for the program, we definitely recommend calling Jeff today.

    My husband and I had the distinct pleasure to work with Jeff Anderson and Cash Back to Heroes program. Both my husband and I are military veterans, serving a collective 19 years, and had never heard of “Help with home buying program” before a friend of ours highly recommended it. Our loan officer suggested we consider Jeff Anderson, especially after having dealt with multiple real estate agents who were unequipped to handle the unique loan process that the Veteran’s Affairs department requires of veterans who use their home loans. Jeff was more than knowledgeable about the process, and eliminated the anxiety of potentially being taken advantage of when looking for our first home. He would wade through our “honeymoon eyes,” pull us back to reality and identify aspects of homes that the VA would have problems approving, or would become potential problems for us down the road, and explain in great detail the why of it. We always felt that every detail of each home we toured, both good and bad, was fully disclosed.

    Working with Jeff felt more like friendship than a business relationship. When touring potential homes, he gave sound and reasonable advice with a “no nonsense” attitude. He was quick to identify when a home was “lipstick on a pig,” or would require more work than would be worth at the end of the day. He constantly made the extra effort, taking time away from his family to work a late night bid or early morning closing, and graciously buying appetizers and drinks when we had to meet outside of “normal” working hours due to my husband’s and my chaotic schedule. As such, we didn’t expect him to answer calls/texts/e-mails at 10PM, but like clockwork, he was “Johnny-on-the-spot,” keeping us constantly in the loop with frequent updates and never left us wondering.

    Since this was our first experience in the home buying process, we were overly impressed with how patient Jeff was with us, and how he took the time to explain every aspect of a procedure in a language we could understand. He made the above and beyond effort to ensure we never wasted money, and found every loophole imaginable that ended up saving us thousands of dollars. We both appreciated how down-to-earth, real, honest and wonderful he was, and still continues to be, well after we’ve closed! A recommendation to work with Jeff can’t come any higher. We certainly know whom we will be calling when we look for another property in the future! From the bottom of our hearts, we can’t thank you enough for everything!

    We couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience we had with “Help with home buying program” and our realtor Jeff Anderson and mortgage lender Travis Christianson. From the first call we made, we were taken care of every step of the way. Selling our current home was swift and professional, and the purchase of our new home was a breeze. Jeff found dozens of options for us to see, was patient in our decision making process, and showed us options we wouldn’t have thought of on our own. We are so pleased in our new home, thrilled to have participated in the Cash Back to Heroes program, and would recommend the entire experience to anyone.

    This is the key that wouldn’t be possible without Jeff Anderson & Mike Coady in my corner. When Jeff learned that i was a veteran, he made it his mission to help Teddy and I find a beautiful and historic home. He went even further to connect us with Mike for the best possible financing. I am forever thankful to Jeff and Mike who are true warriors for Vets! Lucien Cravens




    Sam Beuch testimonial

    We initially researched Cash Back to Heroes program and found it would be a great fit for us. We looked over an e-mail Jeff had sent us. It was immediately apparent that Jeff was passionate about his career as well as helping those in his community. We began working with Jeff who was incredibly personable with us. He thoroughly explained each step of the buying process and answered any questions we had. He immediately began searching for homes in our price range and got us right into looking at them. Upon doing so he researched each individual one and provided us with specific details about the property. Between both of us, our work schedules are almost completely opposite. Jeff worked around this and made himself available when we were, even late into the evening. We both remembered how Jeff said that his career had no schedule and he was willing to work whenever he needed to. He really ensured the best result for us despite odd hours and sacrificing his own time to help us through this process. When we located a home that we wanted to put an offer in on, Jeff immediately got to work on making that happen. Despite demanding sellers Jeff was able to ensure we paid the price we felt comfortable with. He was persistent, thorough, and ensured everything in his power was done to close the deal. We couldn’t have been happier with the results. If you are looking for an experienced professional who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure a smooth process look no further. We will always recommend Jeff to those we come into contact with!

    We moved to Burnsville, MN in the spring of 2018 during a very competitive market. We contacted Jeff because we had a wonderful experience with Jeff the 1st time. We knew that if anyone can help us, it would be Jeff. Again, Jeff made it all happen for us. We wanted a house big enough for our family since we just added another addition. After a couple days of looking, and multiple offers on a house we really wanted, Jeff found the perfect one for us. The minute we saw the house, we knew it was the one. The space was more than we can ask for and right within our price range. The location was PERFECT! He knew exactly what it was that we were looking for in terms of floor layout, space and location! Now we just had to get our townhome on the market and sell! Again, he made that happen! It was a huge success. We were able to sell out townhouse in a day! He truly went above and beyond to sell our townhome. Jeff is not only one of the best realtor we have had the honor to work with, he is also a very kind, caring and thoughtful person. He made sure that meetings and showings worked for us. He met us at hours that worked for us even if that meant he had to go out of his way. He answered every question and addressed every concern that we had. He did exactly what we wanted. If we had to do it again, we would do it all over again with Jeff!
