There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.



JD is a great agent. I’ve used him on 5 transactions since 2002. He knows the local market very well, has always been honest with me (e.g. when my house was worth less than I thought, he told me so!), is always on top of the details of a transaction, is great at follow-up, and has always been available to answer the questions that come up during a transaction. Most importantly, I never doubt that looking after my best interests is his #1 priority. One more thing – he’s not the slippery used car salesman type that so many agents are.

My absolutely Most Favorite Realtor! He totally deserves the MFR award!

I have been condo shopping for the past 2 months on the west side… JD has been more than helpful. Since I am staying in a decent place that is 7 minutes (including traffic + traffic light) away from work right now, I am really not trying too hard to look for a place.

However, JD has been super patient with me. From my random desire to get a one bedroom and expanded the scope to a 2 bedroom, JD made sure every place we see has parking spot (Josie’s #2 priority), nice bathroom, awesome closet… and most importantly located within 10 minutes away from my work!!!!

JD is friendly, funny and just fantastic to go condo shopping with. He is honest, knowledgeable, and often gives good suggestions. He would remind me on things I have absolutely not thought about. Absolutely detail – oriented! While I still haven’t made up my mind yet, I am getting really really close on deciding on a place. Choices choices… life is full of choices.

It’s tough enough to choose your future home, don’t spend more time to choose your agent. JD is your man!

I found J.D. to be honest, real and a true professional. At the same time, he was very friendly and easy to work with. He was always available and helpful to answer all my questions promptly. He is experienced and knowledgeable. He cared about my situation and made sure that everything runs smoothly. Thanks to him, I was able to get the place that I wanted, at the right time and right price. Great deals are made when you have a great realtor!

J.D. Songstad was our selling agent for a condo sale. He was extremely patient, responsive, and helpful. He dealt with a selling challenging situation with a good attitude, never exhibiting frustration and was always available. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling, as he is fair-minded and very easy to work with.

JD was suggested by a friend as a person who knew the area in which the property was located and had had experience with similar transactions in that area. I was not disappointed inasmuch as his assessment of the area and his suggestions were accurate and very worthwhile, allowing me to maximize the value of the estate for which I was trustee. He was available at all times for my questions and for advice on all aspects of the sale. He kept me aware of every step as it occurred and helped greatly in setting up a record of all the stages of the transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others and would definitely repeat the comments given above. His assistance definitely made handling the sale of the property much easier for me.

JD is an excellent realtor. He has sold 2 homes for my family and also helped us through 3 purchases. His marketing strategies, both online and offline, are exceptional. He is detail-oriented, thorough, and easy to work with. I recommend him wholeheartedly!

JD kept us informed about homes in our dream area for years and when we were finally ready to buy shepherded us through the entire process. He was a god-send for first time buyers!
