I highly highly recommend Timber Ghost Realty! I worked with Mark Nelson on two different transactions over the last 3-4 years, and was extremely impressed with Marks knowledge of the market, how he handles himself, and most importantly getting results on behalf of his clients. Timber Ghost is the best land company I've ever had the pleasure of working with!

Thank you Mark, and your team for taking care of me.

"Mark and Jim Nelson were excellent to work with. I previously had my hunting property listed for 18 months with no luck. Once on board with these guys it took only 2 weeks and we were able to sell for above asking price. Thanks again guys for the great work!!"

"Had my property for sale with another realtor for 2 years and not a sniff. Timber Ghost found me a buyer within the first few weeks of listing. Kept the sale on track when we hit some bumps in the road. Closing with their title company was easy and stress free. Would use Mark again in a second!!"

"We had a great experience selling our cabin with Mark at Timber Ghost Realty. We had some difficulty with land borders and Mark was very knowledgeable and helped walk us through each step. He was always easy to reach and very friendly. I will not hesitate to reach out if I need to buy or sell in the future."

"We have been using Timber Ghost Realty for buying and selling several properties so far in the last 7 years and we are extremely satisfied with the level of services and knowledge that Mark and Jim have. Our last property that listed in Dec 2021 received multiple offers above asking price only 4 days after listed and close within 30 days. I would highly recommend Mark and Jim @ Timber Ghost Realty to anyone that looking to buy or sell property."

"Mark took on the challenge of selling two lots for us in Stockholm Wisc. that had been listed by other realtors with no success. Mark had a buyer for one of the lots within a week and one for the second lot within about a month. Incredible results! I have recommended Timberghost to several friends and will continue to do so. Thanks Mark!!"

"Worked with Mark Nelson to sell our lot at Brainard area. Wow, made selling the lot such a breeze. We were trying to sell the lot with different realtors since last 2 years. It was listed couple times but wasn't able to sell. Then we got connected with Timber Ghost Realty and worked with Mark Nelson. Amazing, the lot was listed and sold within 3 weeks. The best real estate company I have ever dealt with. Very professional, experienced and absolutely wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Timber Ghost Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell the property."

"Worked with Mark Nelson to sell our mother's home. He walked us through each step of the way. There are many siblings and Mark worked with all of us to make sure we understood the process. Can't say enough great things about how it went. Would use Timber Ghost Realty again and would recommend Mark Nelson as your Realtor. He is kind and very passionate about his work."

"I would highly recommend Timber Ghost Realty to everyone I know. I worked with Mark and he was incredible. Day or night he was happy to answer any questions I may have had. If you don't already have a realtor call Mark today."

"We acquired Timber Ghost Realty to sell a five acre property that we owned. We had such a wonderful experience that when we decided to sell our primary residence there was no doubt that we were going to obtain Timber Ghost Realty again. Once again, we had a great experience. We truly appreciate having had the opportunity of working with a company that is ethical and professional. This company knows its business! The employees are warm, genuine and proven to place the customers best interest first! Our Agent; Mark Nelson you have earned our respect and admiration. We will be purchasing a new home and property in the near future and we look forward to working with the folks at Timber Ghost Realty again!"

"Our experience with the team at Timber Ghost was exceptional from the very start. Mark and Jim Nelson are professional, knowledgeable, and respectful. They have a get-r-done attitude, pay attention to the details, and do so at a very fair rate. We had a very unique lake property in Aitkin County, that we tried to sell with another realty firm. That firm failed miserably in every way. Timber Ghost knew how to properly market the property and found several potential buyers in very short order. I highly recommend Timber Ghost and we plan to utilize them again in the future."

"We worked with Jim (initial contact) and with Mark. I couldn't be happier with the process and with the results. We wanted to sell a couple pieces of land in NW WI and buy something else. We got great prices and had absolutely zero issues. We had one of our pieces of land listed previously elsewhere, but this was entirely different. We felt Timber Ghost really aggressively marketed. I will absolutely use them again without a second thought! Best realtors we've worked with!"

- Tom Kelby

"Mark Nelson of Timber Ghost Realty did an outstanding job of marketing our 3 parcels of family owned properties. Working with multiple owners is not always easy, but Mark made it happen. He was available to answer all of our questions in a timely manner. We had all 3 parcels under contract within 2 weeks and all were closed within 6 weeks! Thanks Mark for making it such an easy process! We would recommend Timber Ghost Realty to anyone who wants to sell property in Northern Minnesota!"

"The Nelson team at Timber Ghost Realty did an outstanding job of selling our building sites. They have a proven system in place that connects buyers with sellers and everyone comes out happy. We had our properties listed with another realtor for a six-month term and never had a single offer. We listed through Mark at Timber Ghost Realty on a Sunday and he had it old on the following Saturday. It took him all of six days to get it sold, totally amazing! They even sold it for a higher price than we had originally listed it for. We would highly recommend Timber Ghost Realty; they are great to work with and by far better than all the rest."

- Joe and Lori Adamek

"We had listed three properties with two other realty companies and had no success over a 2-3year period. In November of 2020 we listed these three parcels of vacant land in the Aitkin County area with Timber Ghost Realty and specifically with Mark Nelson. One of the parcels sold right away and we closed Dec. 23, 2020. Mr. Nelson suggested that we reconfigure the remaining two parcels so that each would have river frontage and this was done with minimal expense. One parcel sold in April and the other in May of 2021! Mr. Nelson walked us through everything from start to finish without any difficulties. He's honest and straightforward and he accomplished what he'd set out to do, making us happy sellers and the other folks happy buyers. Will do business again with Timber Ghost Realty should we be given that chance! We highly recommend!!"
