A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
Working with Wendy on finding me the perfect home was a pleasure. I have never experienced a realtor who worked so hard for a client. Wendy went out of her way to make my dreams come true and she had her work cut out for her with this short sale home.
Don't think twice about another realtor when you can have Wendy Gimpel working for you!!
We met Wendy when we thought we were going to buy a home locally. She showed us several beautiful homes in Stillwater: Wendy was intuitive about what we liked, but when it was clear we weren't sure quite what we wanted to do she gave us space to make up our minds. Ultimately, we bought a home out of state, but used Wendy as our listing agent. Wendy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was responsive, trustworthy, and fun to work with. I'm sure there are always hiccups in real estate transactions, but Wendy can talk anyone off any ledge. As I said before, Wendy is a true pleasure to work with, her positive outlook and genuine interest in our family made a stressful process much more manageable.
I can't even begin to describe what a positive, beneficial, educational, fun and stress-relieving experience it was working with Wendy to find our dream house in Lake Elmo. My fiancé and I just relocated from Madison, WI and we both have extremely busy jobs requiring travel. In addition we were both prepping to sell our Madison houses and were traveling back and forth a lot - so we were not easy to pin down together.
Wendy asked a lot of questions, took in our reactions to listings she emailed us and quickly understood what was important to us in our home and what our limits were in renovation/redecorating. She found us a home in our first trip out that fit everything we were looking for - we had no idea we could live on a lake! Through the entire offer making, negotiation and financing process she had informative, knowledgeable and fabulous advice & opinions. Always got back to us in a very timely manner. In addition, her experience in interior design and renovation provided solid information in making our offer and instant contacts for the work we are having done.
I have moved a lot and Wendy is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Right down to having move-in supplies for us and a # for an extremely tasty pizza delivery for our first weekend in the house. And even before starting house hunting, Wendy negotiated a temporary corporate apartment for me that accommodated dogs & was furnished. We highly recommend Wendy to be your realtor!
Wendy was the best. There's nothing more to say...she honestly cared about our sale, and addressed every concern almost before it happened. I would recommend her to anyone in a moment, and if we ever move again, she's who we will call.
After 3 years on the market, Wendy took over as the selling agent on my house. Great marketing, positive encouragement and sound advice (and a million other over and above details) resulted in the sale of my home after 3 short months!

Wendy is AMAZING! She was right on the mark with price point and knew the market really well, our house sold in a really short time. Wendy is honest and straight-forward, really knows real estate and takes pride in her work (and is super funny, which is important in most life situations!). She's organized, professional, and timely. I have known Wendy for years, and she has always been really passionate about houses and decorating, she has a great eye for what sells or how to find the diamond in the rough with her great vision. Wendy will work harder than anyone to sell your home or find you a new one. I will always recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a great agent!

I always thought realtor commissions were exorbitant, but I obviously worked with the wrong realtors. Wendy did a fantastic job helping us find the perfect house and sell our current one. She helped us evaluate our situation from all angles (build vs. buy, location, needs), going above and beyond. It's obvious that she loves her job, which is why it couldn't have worked out any better for us.
Wendy was great to work with. My wife and I were relocating from Denver, CO and got hooked up with Wendy. She was willing to show us any house that was with in our price range. She never tried to push us on a house and was very patient with us. She would never try to push our budget. We told her what it was and she was very good about sticking with in our limits. Wendy will go over the top to ensure you are satisfied with your new purchase. She made relocating very easy for my family and we are very great full for that.
We worked with Wendy to both sell our old home and buy a new home. She walked us through each step of the way: prepping our home for sale, listing our home, and showing it well. Our home was priced right, looked great, and sold immediately for even more than we had hoped! Wendy's detailed knowledge and attention made all the final paperwork and negotiating go smoothly.
When buying our new home, because of our very limited price range, Wendy's local knowledge of the neighborhoods, prices and home values was absolutely invaluable. After two months of searching our must-have community of Stillwater and the surrounding area, Wendy's eagle eye found a great house (just minutes after it was listed) that was in our perfect location of Stillwater, just the right size, had a lot of needed features (4 beds, 2 baths) AND was under budget!
We are VERY impressed and happy about our work with Wendy. She is knowledgeable, a skilled negotiator, always available by cell and email, and answered all our questions, any time we needed her. She WILL find you an awesome home, and she won't settle for anything less than your perfect fit in a home!
I have bought and sold several homes in the last 10 years and Wendy is by far the best agent with whom I have worked! She answers emails, responds to messages and phone calls immediately and addresses concerns in a straight-forward, positive manner. Growing up in this area gives her an intimate knowledge of homes and neighborhoods. She was sympathetic to our needs and concerns. Her advice on negotiating the price of our home was smart and saved us time and money. We felt very well-represented. The value of being well-represented cannot be overstated! Her expertise as a real estate professional along with her amiable and engaging nature has earned her a growing list of happy customers. Wendy is authentic and she loves her work! I recommend her without reservation!
My move to from out-of-state was made possible thanks to Wendy's outstanding efforts. There were many times after I accepted a job that my ability to make the move became bleak due to many ill-timed factors in selling my previous home. It was Wendy’s exceptional knowledge of the home-buying process, as well as her connections to people in financing, titling, home inspections, etc…, that helped me overcome the challenges of moving from out of state. Her upfront honesty and integrity also alleviated much of the anxiety I felt during the move. While many realtors I’ve previously worked with seem to have the mentality to “sell, sell, sell,” Wendy took a caring and responsive approach that wasn’t pushy and offered personable and honest advice. In fact, even after closing we have contacted Wendy and received immediate responses on questions that didn’t even pertain to the home-buying process - .e.g. navigating the local area, home warranties, etc… Once we did find a home, her expert knowledge of the market and negotiation skills put me in a favorable position to purchasing a home. I can say without reservation that Wendy will be my realtor for life and I whole-heartedly recommend her to others!
I couldn't have made this move without Wendy. She completely understands the stress involved in making such a big move, responds nearly instantaneously, and helps with every aspect of the sale. She has a passion for homes and an outstanding eye for detail, design and value. She has resources at her finger tips to help with every issue.
Wendy will take good care of you.
I have worked with many real estate professionals and Wendy by far exceeded all areas. I did not for a minute ever feel like "just another business transaction" Wendy is professional as well as personal. She really cares for her clients. Something more business professionals should take note of. I am recommending her to all of my friends and family! You definitely have a gem among your staff!

I could not have moved here without Wendy's wonderful skills. Her rapid response in showing me the home and working with the realtor selling the property resulted in my ability to obtain the home. She goes the "extra mile" for her clients and wants them to be happy.
Marilyn Roberts - Roseville, MN
Wendy is hands-down the best agent I've ever worked with. She has sold two homes and bought one for me so I've worked with her A LOT. She also sold my parents home. She goes to bat for her clients like I've never seen. She isn't afraid of anything - she doesn't back down and she will get the job done. She knows the market and the business thoroughly. Wendy is extremely professional and a joy to work with. The realtors on the other side of our deals have also commented on her professionalism and way with people. Wendy Gimpel is the realtor you need whether you are buying or selling.
Joele Hiers - St. Paul, MN
Wendy was a fabulous help in buying my new house! She was so knowledgeable about the area and about home construction/maintenance ... as a newly single mom, she was so good in making sure that I was taken care of so that my new house will be as maintenance free as possible. Plus, she is a ton of fun!
Chris Hesse-withbroe - Bayport, MN
Wendy is the best real estate agent that we have worked with. We highly recommend her to anyone that is interesting in selling or purchasing a home. She is extremely responsive and has the highest level of intergity. I"m sorry that we aren't still living in Stillwater to work with her in the future.
Dawn and Jim Dillinger - Stillwater, MN
