We had the pleasure working with Carol during our home purchase on October, 2014. It was not an easy process; we were dealing with an unruly seller and an inexperienced loan officer. But through all of the twists and turns, Carol was on top of it every step of the way. She was very proactive with handling the loan officer and also dealt with the sellers very professionally. We viewed a grand total of 33 homes in over a 3 month time period, and each time she was very pleasant to work with, not pressuring and giving honest information. I highly recommend Carol to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell their home.



Recommend! Carol is the best realtor that I have ever met. Carol's response time is incredible. I do not like to wait for answers to my questions. Her negotiation skills must be good too, she got me the price I wanted, that makes me happy. Carol is very professional, and knowledgeable, I highly recommend her.


Tim took the time to know why we were selling and provided suggestions on how best to show the house.

He is knowledgeable and kept in communication with us. Staff was organized and kept things moving. Mike & Connie Shockman

Karine is AMAZING!

She was there every step of selling my house with coming soon announcements, setting up viewings, creating spreadsheets of offers, helping pack, providing directions to movers. . Even after it was sold. . . Making it move in ready for the buyer. Karine was with me from the start until the end!! Her dedication is truly one of a kind and so very much appreciated! Karine is very professional with a truly personable touch that makes the whole experience a lot less stressful. If you want to sell or buy a house, call Karine!!

After 5 years of working with other realtors we decided to give Tim a try.

In the first 60 days on the market Tim brought us 4 offers and SOLD our home for our full asking price. The experience of working with Tim was terrific. Peter Mann & Mary Tyler

We had a fantastic experience with Karine.

She gave us great advice and had a thorough knowledge of the area including things to consider with our situation (in this case, purchasing a seasonal cabin). She was more than willing to travel great lengths to visit properties with us. Highly recommended!

Carol did a great job in being our real estate agent in our land purchase. She gave us many leads on purchasing a place for our next home. As we were not sure if we wanted a prebuilt home or land, she was available for showings and quickly responsive to any questions we had. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and great in negotiating. We look forward to selling our current home with her and would highly recommend her to others.


You said you could provide quick results.

Everyone does, but you actually did it. GREAT JOB TIM!!!!! Peter Tietz

Thanks Tim.

We would definitely call you when we look for our next property. You were great. Brad & Peggy Jensen

We found Carol based on Zillow's local recommended realtors because of the home we were looking at. We had a realtor in the past but took a chance on a realtor from our area of interest. We were skeptical of using a realtor who we didn't come by based on a personal referral. We were abundantly surprised and pleased to have found Carol, who from the very 1st contact with us, was instantly dedicated, quickly responsive, and thoroughly knowledgeable about our home search. She was incredibly patient and hard working. We had a very difficult and complicated case for our approval and circumstances, yet Carol remained patient and hard working throughout. The sellers on the home we purchased were quite difficult, demanding and inflexible, but Carol went above and beyond to make the deal happen for us and fought for what we needed. We could always get a hold of her night or day and she made every last minute meet up or showing possible no matter what. She provided guidance, recommendations, alternatives, options, and even compassionate, emotional support when we were frustrated with the other side's delays etc. After we successfully purchased our home and moved in she followed up with as much care and dedication as she did during our search. We really missed speaking with her every day after our closing! Without question, we highly recommend Carol to any buyer or seller and know for certain that we will use her again if we sell our home and/or buy another!

Molly Price Munson

Carolyn went above and beyond what other realtors in the past have done.

Whenever I found something to look at, she set up the appointment right away and was always willing to help. If you want a great agent, get Carolyn Hilke. She will find exactly what you're looking for.

Janet Reining

Karine was very helpful right from the get go.

She also met with us at our convenience (place, time, in-person/virtually). She was very knowledgeable I’ve the area as well as doing her research. Communication with Karine was great and she made the processes of selling our home go very smoothly!

Sarah & Zachary

Karine is the best realtor I’ve ever met, personally and professionally.

She took time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Although I’m young and a first time home buyer, she took me seriously when other realtors did not. She was patient during my home-buying process. It took me about 6 months of serious shopping to finally close on a perfect house. During that time, Karine was always available for showings that worked best for my schedule. She is one of the hardest workers I’ve met. She was always watching out for my best interest and negotiated firmly on my behalf. Once the sale was complete, Karine continued to add her efforts with my move-in process (e.g. measuring rooms, helping me with color schemes and furnishing ideas, and lending me an enclosed trailer and dropping it off for me).

Bridget A.

Amazing help and flexibility while we were trying to buy a house from a few hours away.

Everything went smoothly in the closing process, and now oh house feels like home.

Karine helped my husband and I find our first home!

She is truly amazing. Karine is always a quick text or phone call away and truly is there for you whenever you have a question or want to set up a showing. She is well connected in the area and knowledgeable on many aspects of buying a home and projects a home may need. She is so helpful in creating a vision of what the home could be as she is so creative with her own house projects. We spent a long time finding the right home for my husband and I, and Karine was always patient and understanding with us for the years it took us to find the right fit. We highly recommend connecting with Karine for any questions you may have regarding buying/selling a home.

Chelsea & Marshall

Highly Recommend!

Carol's attention to detail impressed us from start to finish! She helped us see real potential in both selling our home and helping us purchase our new home.


“If you’re looking for an agent that truly listens to your needs, goes above and beyond what is expected, and is incredibly easy going and genuinely concerned for her clients then I would highly recommend using Liesa Birkemeyer.

I found Liesa to be not only interested in making the sale but also in developing a relationship with her clients long term. When I was selling my home as part of a out of state relocation, Liesa made sure everything was handled smoothly and swiftly. When I say she goes above and beyond, I mean that. What agent do you know that would make the over hour trek to pick up and deliver (and even help install! ) basement well covers that I needed in order to finish moving forward with the close of sale? Mine did! She kept me grounded and calm when things were getting beyond hectic with showings and she even helped me come up with alternatives for my pets during our open house. I cannot brag enough about the extra special treatment I received from Liesa.”

Donna Rylander

Kris is an amazing realtor.

He takes the time to really listen to what you are looking for. He is very willing to accommodate your schedule to look at listing. Was also a great agent to work with when we listed. He worked hard to get the house seen by many which resulted in a sale.

Heidi Harrington

Kris went WELL above and beyond the call of duty.

As first time home sellers, we are very grateful for his patience, advice and support, without which we would never have been able to compete this process.

Patrick D. Quance

Karine is amazing!

She was there every step of the way to keep our home sale on track. Karine was the exact dedicated professional we needed to get my family into the home of our dreams!

Tracy M.

Our selling agent in southern MN put us in touch with Tim Bosch, and he was awesome!

He listened to what we wanted to find in our new home and didn't waste our time with properties that were undesirable. Within a month or so he found us our dream home, and then within another two months we closed and moved in. Even though we were working with him long distance, the entire process went very smoothly and Tim was kind and professional through it all. This was our first time to purchase a home as a married couple, and no question or concern was too small or irrelevant for him to answer for us. We were told by our other agent that Tim was one of the top-rated Weichert realtors in the state, and she was right! We are very happy clients here on our 40 acres of God's Country! Thanks Tim! Like

Sarah Rogers

We looked on MLS a few years ago when we first thought about moving north and Carolyn was the agent assigned to show us the house we selected, turned out that we wanted to wait to move so when we decided it was time we contacted her because she was very easy to work with and get along with and seemed to be quite knowledgeable.

Absolutely enjoyed working with her, when the seller was difficult she managed to apply just the right finesse to get them to come around.

Damon Schwarz

We have worked with Tim Bosch on several occasions over the course of 15 years.

Highly likely to recommend If you want a Realtor who is amazing, hire Carol!

I met Carol when we decided to sell our home in the suburbs and move to a condo in Minneapolis in 2016. Carol is smart, fun, and.really well educated in her field. Best of all, she responds to your questions. There were times that a question would pop in to my head late in the evening and I would text her. I was always getting a response. I finally had to explain that I didnt need an immediate response!! Carol is a lovely person and my husband and I felt very lucky that we just happened to be the ones that she responded to when we were looking at condos on Zillow.

Sheri Peterson

I Felt like Tim kept my best interest in mind and stayed patient with me which made the process go much more smoothly.

We have the home of our dreams thanks to her assistance!

Kyle A. O'Connor

Karine Loobas with Weichert Realty is by far the best realtor we have ever used.

For two years she sent listings she thought might be appropriate for us and met us to show homes many, many times. We needed a special home and she always came to us with a smile and lots of enthusiasm but never pushed during our search. Thanks to Karine, we found our new home. She also sold property for us and we were treated with professionalism and friendship over and over again. A five star rating isn't high enough for Karine and we have no hesitation in recommending her at Weichert Realty.

Lyn Cook

Tim & Kaarin Hanskee Tim was available at anytime via phone or email.

He was helpful to our bug & little questions about selling our home. He explained everything in a clear manner, more than once if necessary. He was willing to come to our home to meet with us, which was helpful with our small children. We had a great experience with Tim and he was wiling to give us honest feedback and go above and beyond to get our house sold. I also like seeing Weichert involved in supporting the community.

Josh & Sandy S.

We were so lucky to get such a wonderful agent as Carolyn.

She went above and beyond to help us. Would recommend her to anyone that wants an agent that cares.

Linda Trippel

We had quite the journey selling our home and Karine was with us through it all.

We met her 2 yrs before we actually sold and she kept up with us the whole way. We ended up with a unique situation; an offer on our house during renovations and NOT on the market. Needless to say it wasn’t a typical transaction on both the buyer and seller side and she navigated it so well for us! We had it all: out of state move, offer when not listed, renovations to be finished, first time home buyers buying and us needing a short term rent back after closing to pull it all off! Whew, we all need a nap. Ha! We got to know Karine personally a bit over our time with her and appreciated her friendly demeanor, encouragement and patience! We will be forever grateful for her role in what turned out to be one of the biggest/best decisions of our life. Thanks for everything Karine!

Mark & Jessica Leitheiser “Tim helped my husband and I buy our first home.

Tim was very patient and made us feel comfortable; he made certain we understood all of our options in the home-buying process. He was committed to our transaction and helped negotiate a few tricky details right before closing. We would recommend Tim to our family and friends!

Mark & Jessica Leitheiser

Liesa did a great job helping us buy our first home.

She was very knowledgeable on the area and was able to help make our relocation process as smooth as possible. Despite the deal being with another realtor in her office she still fought for what we wanted and pushed to get everything we needed. She was always accessible and quick to get things done when the ball was in our court, from an early showing before the house even hit the market to moving up closing for our convenience. Great experience overall.

Allison and Christopher McGregor

Carol was amazing to work with. Not only did she help us buy a new home, but she helped us sell our other home. She was always there to answer our questions and was very flexible with our schedules. If we hit any bumps in the process, Carol helped us through them and was patient with us. We would definitely use her again and will be recommending her to anyone who will listen!


Karine Loobas helped me find a house in the most difficult housing market of our generation and still managed to help me find and negotiate the purchase of my beautiful new home in the lakes area.

She worked very hard to get the best results for me and never backed down or thought something was too difficult. I would strongly recommend the Weichert team and especially Karine to anyone who wants to be represented by a professional who delivers professional results.

Mr. Payne

Tim, Here we are at the beginning of Autumn, and it occurred to me what a short time ago it was that I called you to let you know about our decision to move to the Brainerd Lakes area full time.

I believe it was the last week of July that we set out to look at a few homes I had indicated were of interest. So, after 6 short weeks: • You helped us find the house of our dreams. In fact, it was the 2nd house you showed us. • You sold our cabin, even before it was listed, even before there was a for-sale sign at the driveway. I’ve told this story to a number of our friends and they can hardly believe it’s true. I know there was more involved in making this happen than we are aware of. In my company, we have a process we call LMX. It stands for “Last Mile Excellence”. What it means is that the greatest effort is often needed right at the end-game, even though that effort is seldom apparent, or acknowledged fully. I know you worked hard for us right up to the last minute of closing, to make sure it happened on time. I think you should adopt LMX as your own slogan. We were grateful to you when you sold us the home on Harrison. We loved that home, and have many, many wonderful memories regarding our time there. And I can hardly express our gratitude to you for the service you have provided us in getting into the home that we fully expect we will spend the rest of our lives in. We love everything about this place, I can hardly begin to describe to you our joy at being here. I can tell you truthfully that we never hope to move again, that is how happy we are with our new home. But in the one in a million chance that we do choose to moveon, I will NEVER, EVER consider another realtor to help us with that decision other than you. Thank you very, very, very much!

Karine had our confidence from the start.

Any time we wanted to see a property she made it possible and generally lined up a few more. We felt she was always open and honest with us. That was extremely important to us. Didn't care what day it was she was always very responsive with communication. After looking at a lot of houses she found our "Home". Karine is very dedicated, ambitious and knowledgeable. Thank you Karine. You made the house hunting experience exciting. Jim & Judy OKeefe

Carol has gone above and beyond to make sure that my family found the right home for us. In one day she literally went to over 25 houses to show us places. Because she was so dedicated to helping us find a place I was able to find a property in less than two weeks and I will be closing on my new home at the end of August 2017! My experience with carol was able to move up the buying process fast because she was so dedicated. She listened to our concerns and did everything she could to account for our needs. My family has had a lot of houses growing up because we were a military family and I have got to say that carol is he best realtor yet. I will be using her again in the future and highly recommend her coming from someone who was a stranger to now a sold out fan.

Highly likely to recommend 03/17/2018 - andersstone Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Cushing, MN.

We began our home search with two other realtors, making it well known that we were actively looking to buy within two months. Neither realtor took the initiative to find homes for us, and only responded when we contacted them about a property we found and were interested in viewing. Then, by chance we found Leisa. Everything turned around for us once she came on board. Not only was she extremely proactive in finding properties for us, she also had banking contacts which facilitated a smooth pre-qualification process. By the time we began working with Leisa, time was of the essence in finding our new home. She found us the home that is EXACTLY right for us, efficiently guided us through all of the paperwork and procedures, and was kind and attentive throughout the entire process. I HIGHLY recommend Leisa and will definitely seek her services again with any real estate purchase or sale.

“Liesa has a great personality and makes the concept of schlepping about looking at houses seem less like a chore and more like an adventure.

If she doesn't already know the answers to questions, she finds them and presents the facts pure and simple. It was a pleasure working with her on our quest to find a home and I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking who wants an honest and fair minded realtor to help them find their future place to call home. She goes out of her way to provide her clients with the answers they need... in my case, she even took it upon herself to enter a crawlspace under the house where my legs could NOT take me to tell me what was down there. AWESOME AGENT!”

Michele H.

Likely to Recommend Carol had helped us find and buy our first home.

She was pretty easy to work with and was able to work with our schedule very well when it came to looking at potential homes. She had set us up with a profile in the beginning of our house search. This would send updated listings in the cities we were looking in up to our max budget and price drops. This filtered out number of bedrooms/baths, square footage, etc. We went house searching on several occasions with her and she helped us some with pointing out any potential problems with the house when it would come to an inspection. The last day we went out, we had narrowed it down to two houses. The first one had an offer on it right away which left us with the second house as our serious one to look at. She took us around the immediate neighborhood to help us with the decision making as well. She had us look at the property a few different times just to make sure we were thinking of making the right decision and gave us a chance to back out if we wanted to. She acted professional and was able to answer questions when we had one. Overall, she made first-time home buying very simple!
