Meet Zach

Zach’s real estate career started in 2003 after moving to the Twin Cities area from a small farming community in Southwest Minnesota. Zach’s success in Real Estate comes from his passion to help families achieve their dream of homeownership. Growing up in a family owned business setting, Zach quickly learned that trust is built through hard work and dedication by watching what it takes to be a successful businessman from his father. Zach shows dedication to his client’s through each step of the process and this has been proven through the growth of his business and the reputation he has achieved.

Growing up in a small community, everybody knows everybody. Zach loves interacting with people whether they just met for the first time or he has known them for many years. With Zach’s positive attitude, communication skills and willingness to go the extra mile, he has achieved the RE/MAX’s Platinum Club member award year after year.

Zach and his wife Jen reside in Shakopee with their 3 children. In his spare time, he enjoys boating with his family, golfing, coaching his children’s activities and serving as member of his church board.

Mark and Katie Swartout -- Shakopee, MN
Zach made our home selling, and home buying process experience amazing!
Zach's patience in working with us while we tried to find the right timing and the right home for our family proved his commitment and dedication to finding the right situation for us. I am confident many others would have  given up on us =)
On the selling side, Zach was able to use his vast network and knowledge of the market to sell our home before we reached the public market, for well over what we were expecting! This helped to remove stress and angst from an otherwise potentially lengthy process.
On the buying side, Zach helped us to navigate through each speed bump and bend in the road with ease. Zach once again demonstrated his extreme professionalism, depth of his network and relationships, and poise to make sure that the buying process went as smooth as possible with a great deal of efficiency.
While we are confident that Zach has done an exemplary job in finding us our long term home to continue to raise our family, if them opportunity or need arises to look at the market again, Zach will certainly be the first and only call that we will make!
Kendra Kern -- Prior Lake, MN
Zach was extremely helpful to us during the purchase of our new home. Neither my husband or I had owned a home before and he was excellent at navigating us through the whole process.
Chester Kong -- Burnsville, MN
Zach made my first time home buying experience very pleasurable. He was able to accommodate to my busy schedule for showings and was very keen on pointing out pros and cons of each property we visited. He was also very patient and provided great advice when changing the parameters of our search. I  would highly recommend Zach to my friends and family.
Brad Lynch -- Rogers, MN
My wife and I recently bought a new home that Zach helped us find and negotiate a great price. Zach was ALWAYS available and responsive, and also was honest with us around all aspects from the buying process to the financing. I would highly recommend Zach as your realtor, he is very  knowledgeable of the area and industry, and always willing to go the extra mile to make the experience a positive one.
Tim Blahnik -- Shakopee, MN
This is an honest review. I have dealt with many Real Estate agents through the years and many are good at one thing but not another. Zach is well rounded and comes with a common sense approach. He sold our townhome quickly, he knows the local market place, and helped us price it correctly.   Thank you Zach for all of your help.
Colleen Ossman & Ryan Jones -- Prior Lake, MN
Zach was very knowledgeable of the local area which was important to us since we were from out of state. He was very flexible and accommodating with house viewing and was willing to work with us. Being from out of state it was important to have great communication which he provided often and timely. Most importantly Zach was able to answer all of our questions and provided us a stress free process with no pressure. Overall it was a very enjoyable process and we love the home we bought.
Rex and Judith Henderson -- Woodbury, MN
Zach was infinitely patient with us as we looked for a home in the St. Paul area. He listened carefully to what our needs and wants were and even when it looked like we had found what we wanted, he didn't push us and if it fell through, there was no judgement on his part. He sincerely wanted us to be satisfied and excited about our eventual purchase. He guided us throughout the process and we had full confidence that everything was legal, proper and without glitches. We highly recommend Zach as a realtor!
Pierce & Krystle Harrington -- Shakopee, MN
We just worked with Zach to sell our home and buy a new home. He was great to work with from start to finish!! He was very realistic with us on setting our expectations and explaining the process in detail so we knew what to expect and he is extremely knowledgeable on the area and the home buying  process! Zach was always very responsive in answering questions, worked with our schedule and setup showings when it worked for us. He pointed out things when looking at homes that I wouldn't have thought to. He truly kept my family's best interest in mind and worked hard to make our dreams a reality. I would work with Zach again in a heartbeat and have already recommended him to family!
