"First off, the fact that Shawn stuck with me for the last 2 years while I worked on the financing side of things was awesome. I doubt many would do that. Second, Shawn was very accessible and I think that gave me piece of mind that if there would've been any problems they would've been fixed immediately. The write-ups Shawn did to show cost break down of the houses I was interested in helped a lot as well. Shawn definitely knows his stuff! "

"I've had the pleasure of working with Shawn Hunter on both a purchase and a refinance. As a self-employed individual I expected the process to be difficult at best, but Shawn's knowledge and experience cut out the 'hassle factor' on both loans. He delivers on truly personal and customized service and was also able to obtain better pricing and interest rates than I could find elsewhere! Overall my experience with Shawn has been far superior to what I had come to expect of the mortgage industry. There is no question as to whom I'll go to for future mortgage needs and I will also refer friends and family without hesitation. "

– Ryan Woytcke in Dayton, MN

"I have worked with Roy for many years. His work ethic, knowledge, and concern for his clients are all second-to-none. In addition to working as a lawyer in Minnetonka, I also own several rental properties throughout the Minneapolis Area, and Roy has done wonders helping me guarantee that my properties are handled with the utmost care--to say nothing of the money that he has saved me. I have referred many of my clients to him, and all of them have reported that their experience was much the same as mine.

For anyone with the need for guidance in the field of mortgages (a treacherous field, to be sure), there surely is no one more qualified or reliable than Roy Sperr. Whether you are young, old, blue-collar, white-collar, brand new to the mortgage game, or even an experienced veteran yourself, he can guide you through any mortgage procedure with the skill that one comes to expect from a man with more than a decade in the real estate field--and all while maintaining a sense of humor and jovialness. There is no mortgage broker I would recommend above him. "

Now the ball is in my court and I can handle it from here. "

– Sandra in Cold Spring, MN

"Herb Tousley, director of the master's in real estate program and adjunct faculty member in the finance department at the University of St. Thomas' Opus College of Business said, "He believes there's a definite market for Sperr's niche.

"I haven't seen anybody that's willing to spend the time, even over a long period to help them, like he said, get from a no to a yes." "
