  • Freedom! Relief! Thankfulness!  These are the three words that come to mind when I reflect on the sale of my property in Rogers, MN.  I owned such a unique manufacturing building that I thought its sale would be a miracle, and everyone around me affirmed those fears.  The stress dial was cranked as life had added significant financial stress to my family with big business changes and a way out felt hopeless.  Then I met Wayne and CRS.  Although the sale wasn’t easy, it was smooth.  Wayne is an extremely professional realtor, with the kind of ambition, resolve, and detailed work that you need when your property HAS to get sold.  My farming family is thankful for Wayne and CRS and I would recommend them any day of the week.

  • CRS and Eric were great to work with in negotiating our office lease.  They provided invaluable market information so we were comfortable knowing we were getting the best terms for the space we wanted.  Their follow up was phenomenal, both with us and the leasing agent.  Thank you CRS and Eric for making this process as painless as possible!

  • We came to Wayne at CRS after first listing our business with a realtor who specialized in restaurant sales and getting no results.  CRS was recommended by Chris Kruse of Edward Jones in Monticello.  We are so happy that we took his suggestion!  Wayne and his team were so responsive and great to work with.  I don’t know how they do it, as busy as they are, but they really make you feel like you are the only customer they have!  As with a lot of commercial transactions, complications, questions and craziness popped up but Wayne managed to keep us calm and carrying on.  Very professional, very knowledgeable and also very well connected to the industry and area that they serve.  Thank you so much to Wayne and his CRS team.

  • My experience working with CRS and Sheila Zachman has been wonderful!  We have actually purchased two properties with Sheila and she was nothing but helpful.  All of our questions were answered and CRS came to every City meeting to make sure everything went smoothly.  We would definitely use CRS and their expertise in the future!  Thank you CRS and Sheila for everything you did.

  • CRS did a wonderful job on our transaction.  In making a land purchase, which had a few governmental delays, Wayne and CRS were still able to make the process easy.  They were communicative, patient, and knowledgeable.  Wayne was always on top of things and ready to answer any questions I had and provide referrals when additional assistance was needed providing facts which helped make the deal a reality without being pushy.  I’d highly recommend CRS in the future.

  • I would like to personally thank CRS and Wayne for assisting us in selling our property located in Monticello, MN.  They worked diligently to locate potential buyers and had an impressive list of contact with whom they have developed relationships with over the years.  CRS was helpful with every step of the sale from writing the purchase agreement to following through on details of the closing.  We also appreciated the assistance with property management issues that arose from time to time by finding contractors to handle repairs and being available to provide property access if needed.  This was especially helpful since we live out of state.  With confidence, we would recommend CRS to anyone that is looking to market a property.

  • Working with Wayne and his team at CRS was great.  We had a very short lead time to acquire a building and build out an operation so as to be shipping manufactured products in a matter of a few months.  With pressing requirements comes lots of hand holding, and the team of CRS was up to the task.  Opening the building at a moment’s notice, dropping off information, meeting contractors when I was unable.  This is what customer service is supposed to be.  Thanks CRS Team.  We are happily completing what you all helped us to start.

  • This letter is to acknowledge the high level of professionalism and aptitude that Wayne Elam and CRS showed during our recent commercial real estate transaction. Prior to meeting Wayne we had experienced nothing but frustration with several attempted commercial transactions. However, once we had met with Wayne and enlisted him as our Commercial Broker he was able to navigate us through a complex transaction that seemed effortless with his expertise. With Wayne and CRS it wasn't just about "getting the deal done" as he took every measure to ensure that our transaction went smoothly and seamlessly. On multiple occasions he went above and beyond "just being the agent" to help with other issues involved with the purchase. It is this kind of integrity that bespeaks a great and trustworthy broker that gave us complete confidence in Wayne's capabilities. For anyone even considering a commercial transaction either buying or selling, we can honestly recommend Wayne and CRS without reservation.
