Our Clients Stories
Lee was such a vital part in our home buying process on so many levels. His responsiveness and knowledge of the process was exceptional. His knowledge of the real estate field left us feeling confident in the buying process. Lee gave us great insight to the area as we moved from out of state as well! Overall, Lee is very personable and willing to go above and beyond for his clients! We have gained a great friend along with a beautiful new home!
I originally called Chad looking for an appraisal on my family farm building site. The appraisal turned into working with him on the actual sale of farm building site. He worked with my elderly Mom and visited her at her assisted living facility to get forms signed. Chad was very helpful and knowledgeable on a process myself and my family knew not a lot about. We ran into some road bumps with having to have a new well drilled on the farm site, but the process went smoothly with Chad visiting the farm when the well was being drilled and many other times to make sure things were getting done. Chad kept the whole selling process running promptly and straightforwardly by checking in with me on things that I was working on or needed to get done. My whole family appreciates all of his help and are very grateful to have worked with him to get the family farm building site sold.
Lee was such a great help for my first time home buying experience! He’s made multiple drives from Westbrook MN to Redwood Falls MN so distance is not an issue! For how stressful buying a home can be, it never was with Lee!
Tyler was very helpful in getting us into the home that we wanted and with the sale of our previous home. He worked tireless before, during and after the process to ensure that we were happy with our decisions. Tyler is very professional, courteous, friendly and provides excellent advice in purchasing/selling a home.
Lee Fast is a hard worker and did not mind working after hours to complete our offer to purchase our new home in Minnesota. This is unlike many realtors we have worked with in the past. Lee communicated with us regarding each step of the way regarding our home purchase. Any hiccups in the process were dealt with promptly and Lee even gave us recommendations for local businesses during and after our purchase. We would recommend him to any buyers and/or sellers, especially if you are moving from out of state.
Highly recommend Chad to help with all of your real estate needs. We were very pleased with his professionalism, experience, and communication throughout the entire process of selling our home. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Lee was so great to work with. He is attentive and always made sure we were updated on everything while selling our house. We were extremely confident in trusting him with big decisions due to his knowledge in the field. We were also comfortable asking questions and reaching out whenever we needed help.
Chad assisted my siblings and me with selling a farm we inherited from our father through an online auction. Throughout the process Chad was great in keeping us up to date on the process and prepared us for what was needed from us to ensure a smooth transaction. I highly recommend working with Chad and Heartland Real Estate Services.
I was completely satisfied with having Lee as my agent. He was there every step of the way and went above and beyond to help me feel comfortable with my purchase. He assisted me with everything including helping me find homeowners insurance and getting information on my utilities. He explained the process and answered every question I had. Lee responded almost immediately to every message or call. He was friendly and supportive and helpful through the entire process. Lee was very patient with me as a first time home buyer and I always felt confident and secure throughout the entire process. If you are looking for an agent you can trust and who is knowledgeable and helpful, Lee is the agent you should choose. I can't even explain how impressed I was with his professionalism and knowledge. Seriously, if you are looking for the right agent to buy a house or sell your home, Lee is who you should contact. I guarantee you will be very pleased.
Lee did an amazing job helping us find the perfect house for our family. He is very knowledgeable and friendly! Lee was very easy to get a hold of and to communicate with. I'd highly recommend letting Lee help you find your perfect home!

My brother and I had the pleasure of working with Chad Stavnes to help successfully sell our parents’ house in Lamberton while we both live on opposite coasts. He was an excellent choice to be our realtor to guide us through all processes and procedures. We used a video conferencing platform for several discussions and also frequent emails for clarifications, answering questions, and providing updates on all activities. He was knowledgeable, professional, and always helpful in suggesting several options and potential solutions with any issues that arose in the selling process, including contacting local businesses to get info & quotes for services. He was very up-front about everything and we appreciated his calm and friendly demeanor in all interactions. I highly recommend Chad as a realtor.

Lee and Beth
Lee Fast is everything you want in a real estate agent. He is motivated, efficient, prompt, and thorough. Lee is truly invested in his work and determined to help his clients find the home that meets their personal needs. Lee is also friendly and personable to work with, he is willing to go the extra mile for his clients. Lee remained patient throughout the process of my recent home purchase despite some issues with my financing. I highly recommend Lee Fast for your next home purchase!
Tyler assisted us in both selling our home and buying a new one. He hosed several open houses and kept us updated with potential buyers. We looked at many houses in Marshall and he was both knowledgeable and accommodating of our schedule. We felt informed throughout the process, and he pointed out key pros and cons for all of the properties we viewed. He represented us on both ends realistically and professionally. Without him, we may not have bought or sold a house! Thank you Tyler!
Lee not only showed us all the houses on our list. But added some that he thought would be a good fit for us. He went out of his way to lend a hand and even be a listening ear during the stress of moving! I could not recommend a better person to work with. He was knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and caring. He makes the process feel more like you are working with a close friend rather than an agent. Thank you Lee for all you have done for our family!
We highly recommend Chad Stavnes with Heartland Real Estate for selling a home. Chad is very professional and helped us with tips on selling our home as we were going to try and sell ourselves. We felt we could call on him anytime with questions. We see how time consuming it was and he was very thorough with the whole process and very encouraging. We can not thank him enough.
Karl and Judy Dagner
Lee was the agent for the home I recently purchased. He was very accommodating and helpful. He answered calls and texts right away. He made the buying process smooth and efficient. I would definitely use him in the future if I need to sell my home! Awesome realtor!!
Working with Lee has been awesome. He’s very professional and helpful. Very helpful that he’s been available every time we needed him for viewing or just had questions. No matter what we handed him, he took care of it and always kept us in the loop. Thanks Lee for being so good to us.
With great ease and professionalism, Chad helped my siblings and me sell our mom’s home recently. Chad was able to walk me through the situation by answering all my questions as this was a very new experience for me. He kept in touch throughout the whole process which was an added bonus because I do not live in Lamberton. I would highly recommend Chad if you are considering buying or selling a home in the future!
Chad Stavnes did an excellent job of selling our farmland in Cottonwood County. I had considered selling the property on my own, but quickly realized that using Chad and LandProz, with their network and marketing expertise, would more than pay for itself. And it did! We received an acceptable offer in less than a month, and the closing was flawless. Chad is professional, thorough, honest and knowledgeable. I highly recommend his services.
Chad was absolutely amazing to have with us through our first time buying a home. He never left us hanging always there, always proactive and absolutely amazing to work with. From every up and down that came our way he never gave up on us and always found the positive in everything for us. He truly is amazing and I would recommend him and Heartland Real Estate to anyone going through the home buying process! Thank you Chad and Heartland!
Adam and Mistie Ladd
Chad was wonderful to work with. He made the transition from IL to MN so much easier than we could have hoped for! We can’t thank him enough for helping us find the perfect new home!
Chad made selling my house a very pleasant experience. I felt I could call or message him day or night and he would respond. Highly respect him and felt like he wanted to please both the buyer and seller.
We had a great experience with Chad. He was very knowledgeable about the area and showed us around. He had comparable properties for the price to give us an idea of the market in the area. Very helpful not just in finding the home but after as well. When we buy or sell, we’re certainly going to use Chad again.
I would highly recommend Chad Stavnes if your looking to buy or sell!! Chad had our farm listed and gave us a lot of tips for selling and had multiple showings of the house and gave us plenty of time in advance but it just didn’t sell at that time so we took a break from the market… BUT Chad didn’t forget about us and came to us with a buyer who was interested in our farm!! Than Chad helped us find the perfect home for our family!! Chad was very professional and very kind like a best friend in helping us through the whole process!! Thank you Chad for ALL of your hard work!! We couldn’t be happier with everything and you were a HUGE part of that!!
After visiting with several real estate companies, I chose Chad Stavnes of Heartland Real Estate Service, Lamberton, MN to list and sell my acreage. He did an excellent job from the listing presentation, advertising, and showings to the final closing. He is very knowledgeable, knows the market and competition, and does great follow-up with potential buyers. He works with both sellers and buyers in a very professional manner. I was able to sell my acreage in a reasonably short time frame for nearly listed price. I couldn’t be happier with everything Chad did for me.
My Dad was trying to sell his house on his own and it wasn’t working very well. We put it on the market with Chad, itwas on the market for 18 days and then 17 days later closed on the property, Chad did a great job helping us price it and telling us what would be helpful to do to sell the property. I was very pleased with the pictures he took of the property and his professional manner of dealing with all of it. He was also very accommodating on the times to meet with us.
I really appreciate Chads patience and especially not being pressured. He offered professional opinions and he went out of his way to provide me with information on the town I was moving to. The showings were relaxed and he was able to answer questions or was able to quickly get the answer. He quickly obtained a good grasp of what I was looking for and had lots of knowledge of lamberton and surrounding areas.
Chad was absolutely wonderful with driving us around from town to town, showing us homes. He'd walk in and look around as if he was buying it for himself and let us know of tiny details he saw. He didn't pressure us into buying the house he had listed up and was very good to us when it was finally time to close on the house!
Chad is an amazing real estate agent. My husband and I purchased our home through Chad a couple years ago and since then he has help both our son find his 1st home and our daughter find her 2nd home. My daughter would send him a list of homes she liked and he would get everything set up so she could go look. He would find homes she did not see and after about a month of showing my daughter homes she found one she liked (she was picky), but Chad did an amazing job and helped with everything from start to finish.
Chad did an amazing job with the purchase of our house. Even though our purchase was complicated by several difficulties, Chad was always reliable, available, detail oriented, professional, & willing to go the extra mile. We highly recommend Chad, whether it be purchasing or selling your home.
Dave and Britta KelseyBassett
Chad is a great real estate agent. I felt so comfortable working with him. He dealt with me with respect and friendship. I always felt I could call him if I had a question. It is great for Lamberton and area to have such a valuable asset in Chad.
We called on Chad to help us sell our father's house. Little did we know how time consuming and difficult it was going to be because Dad had a reverse mortgage on his house. Communicating with HUD and getting all the paperwork together was overwhelming. However, Chad was the strong calming force that kept us on track to a successful conclusion. Chad is a true professional and I would recommend him for all your real estate needs.
Chad was so wonderful to work with as he helped my parents sell their home. He was trustworthy, professional, prompt, and really knows his stuff! During the different ups and downs of the sale process, Chad was a steady guide that brought a lot of relief to my parents. The communication was great and he went above and beyond to make sure we were all informed and satisfied. I would highly recommend Chad for any real estate needs. He is one of kind!
Susan Ackerman, Neil and Beverly Yarrington
My husband and I bought a house through Chad this past summer. Chad was always available and quick to get us information and visits to the house. He guided us through each step and was easy to deal with and understand. We felt confident in our dealings with him through a process that we really didn't know much about. We would highly recommend Chad to anyone needing a Realtor®️.
Tim and Eileen Helmer
It is my pleasure to recommend Chad Stavnes as an excellent real estate agent. Chad helped us sell a home as part of an estate process. We were remote sellers so expediency and good communication were very important. Chad kept us well informed, handled all the details efficiently, always tried his best, and was ready with good advice to get the sale done. I’d recommend him for his expertise, attention to detail, communication skills and integrity.
I would highly recommend Chad for all your real estate needs. When I was looking to move back to the area, from out of state, Chad went the extra mile to provide all the information he could on the properties I was considering. He was always very good to work with and followed through on everything in a timely manner. He was also persistent, helpful, and patient as we worked through the frustrations of dealing with a large national lender on the closing date and documents. I wish everyone involved had been as efficient and helpful as Chad.
Patricia and I contacted Chad immediately when we decided to list our retail hardware building for sale. His expertise was evident from the beginning in going through the process in procuring a buyer. His knowledge of how to market real estate was invaluable. Now in the process of selling our house , we have observed how Chad and his clients have respected our home during the showings. We appreciate Chad answering all our questions, giving us positive advice and updates. Chad’s honesty and integrity go a long way in determining why others should look to him when buying or selling real estate.
Steven and Patricia Krinke
I highly recommend Chad as a Real Estate Agent. He was the listed agent on a house we were interested in & when we contacted him about seeing the house he was willing to show it to us as many times as we wanted to see it. He was very knowledgeable about the property & if he didn’t know the answer he found out right away. He also ended up representing us on the purchase of our home & helped us find a good home inspector (who was extremely thorough). When I was in a panic due to all the paperwork using a government loan he helped explain the process & get me through my panic stage. All in all, Chad is an excellent agent & will definitely go the extra mile whether selling or purchasing a property through him.
In the past few years, I have worked with Chad Stavnes for the sale of my house and my office building in Lamberton and I am happy to say that the process went very well for both sales. Chad found a buyer for the properties quickly, tended to the details, and moved the process along with knowledge and professionalism throughout. I highly recommend Chad Stavnes for assistance for both residential and commercial real estate transactions.
I have used Chad's Realtor services when selling a house and buying a house. When I sold my house, I listed with Chad, a buyer was interested very soon, an agreement was made between us and the closing went very smooth. I bought my house from an estate. There were several family members, Chad was clear and accurate when communicating to them and to me. The process went very smooth and Chad kept things moving along. I would recommend Chad Stavnes as your real estate broker. Thank you Chad for a job well done.
Chad did a fantastic job for my brother and I as we tackled the selling our parents’ house. Specifically, we were most grateful for his patient advice regarding the local market conditions, setting the list price and helping us understand how to best position the property to sell. As the communication on the countless details and decisions was complicated by the fact that I lived out of town and my brother out of the country, we greatly appreciated Chad’s willingness to adapt to our needs by communicating in email/text and to talk outside of normal business hours. He kept us up-to-date on all of the viewing activity on the house without our needing to ask for updates and he provided us with a dependable connection right through to the completion of the sale. I would highly recommend Chad as your real estate broker.
