Very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Went out of the scope of his duties to assist us in our move in. Helped my family find their dream home and was honest about everything. I still am in touch with Ray and he still continues to help my family when in need. Matt G
Ray was great to work with. He responds quickly, even after normal business hours when necessary to relay information and respond to questions/concerns. He has excellent knowledge of the real estate business. Very professional. Lori A.
Ray helped us navigate the purchase of our cabin. He knows the area very well and was able to help get us in touch with the right companies for jobs that needed to be done. He negotiated for both the seller and buyer and did a good job of making us both happy. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a place in the north woods. Tirzah P
Ray provided me with first class service every step of the way regarding my purchasing of my new residence in the Orr, MN area. I came all the way from Las Vegas, NV to look at this property and had lots of questions before I made my first inspection. Ray answered each and every question and was most helpful in helping me navigate the Minnesota Real Estate Laws of which I knew absolutely nothing about. He sent me pages and pages of pdf documents in response to all my questions, and always made himself available to all my telephone calls, emails and text messages. I do believe the longest I ever waited for a return reply from Ray was not more than a couple of hours. I highly recommend Ray for all your Real Estate Needs in this part of Minnesota, he is not only at the top of my list, but also is the only Real Estate Agent I would contact. Keith W
Ray helped us relocate to the beautiful state of Minnesota. He was gracious with his time and showed me the local area when I visited in January. He was upfront and honest, complete transparency, when he showed perspective properties. He often played devils advocate to make sure we were making the right decision, we were moving from the metro Seattle area to rural Minnesota after all. He really wanted to make sure we knew what we were getting ourselves into. In negotiations he did what we asked and was able to time the purchase of the Minnesota property with the sale of our Washington property. We are grateful we had such a helpful knowledgeable agent. I highly recommend Ray, he really takes care of his clients. Ann W
Ray kept us informed throughout the whole process from the listing until the closing. If we ever had a question he was very quick to respond and helpful throughout the whole process. I would recommend Ray to all my family and friends. W. Long
Ray was great to work with when my wife and I purchased a cabin earlier in the year. From our first correspondence to the closing day we were never left wondering about anything. No questions no surprises! I would recommend him favorably going forward. D.M.D.
Ray was always available to answer our questions no matter when we contacted him. It was convenient that we were able to call, email, and process things through web sites because we lived a significant distance from the property that we purchased. He was very helpful though out the whole process. Leah R.
Ray was great from the start he worked with our busy schedule to find out new home in the lake county. Could not be more pleased With Ray and REMAX. Nick G.
Ray sold one of our properties on Crane Lake for us. He is professional, knows the market and is great at communicating with both sellers and buyers. I felt like I was totally in the loop during the whole sales cycle. Strongly recommend Ray. J Bolz
Ray went above and beyond to help us purchase a piece of property. There were some hurdles he dealt with for us that I’m sure took a lot of his time. This was our first experience with a realtor and it couldn’t have been any better. We would recommend him to anyone. Car-Mel
Ray was extremely easy to work with, kind, not pushy and very knowledgeable about the area. He helped us find an amazing cabin on Lake Vermilion. Answered any questions we had very promptly and was always willing to work around our schedule. Just a very down to earth individual who truly wants his clients to be happy! I would highly recommend Ray to anyone in the buying or selling market in northern Minnesota!! J Fanucci
Ray was a gem to work with. He’s very easy to talk to and has a ton of knowledge about the area. He patiently helped us on many issues that came up. He also distracted my kids well during the closing. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell in the north woods area! V Burdine
Ray helped us sell a piece of property we had on the Vermilion River in Buyck MN. We had sat on the property for a while and his motivation to list,and be aware of offers,it worked and it sold. He was very helpful, we were able to do all transactions electronically, the support group doing Title search and other necessary items was quick and professional. We would recommend Ray for your needs. Robert Mackey and Diane Roberts

I recently purchased some land and Ray made the process go very smoothly. He is very personable and willing to help in any way possible. He was able to expedite closing which was greatly appreciated. M. Harrington
I had been looking at land for a few years now never finding exactly what I wanted. I talked to Ray and within a few weeks he had found what I was looking for. I would never have found this property without him. Closing was a breeze. Thanks Ray! V. Rennock
Ray recently sold properties for my family on Crane Lake in Minnesota. I can very highly recommend Ray to others. He is professional in every way. His knowledge and experience in the area and in the business is impressive. He was very motivated to list and sell our properties. He was available to handle any questions or answer texts and emails in a very timely manner. He and his team was always ready and able to navigate any challenges that arose quickly and easily. Each closing was smooth without event. It is a pleasure working with him. K. Sisk
