Brad is an excellent listener, and he did a great job helping us execute our move on our own terms. We were always able reach him with questions, and all paperwork was clearly explained and processed timely. Brad was very professional throughout, with a friendly and reassuring personality.

Working with Brad was wonderful! He took the time to get to know what I was looking for, worked with my schedule for showing houses to me and helped me understand every step of the process. I would highly recommend Brad to anyone. Wonderful Realtor!!!

My Mom moved to Assisted Living. Brad helped us make this as easy an event as possible. He recommended the perfect person to help with downsizing, packing, moving, and unpacking. He arranged for all the services that were required in the listing and selling process. Most importantly , Brad expertly negotiated the offer process and handled every detail of the closing. While my hands were full with transition issues, Brad took care of every detail of the listing, sale, and closing. I couldn't have asked for better support! My entire family is pleased with the outcome and Brad's partnership

It is the end of an era with the sale of our house. We had 40 years with many special memories in our Oak Valley home, with great neighbors and wonderful times with our family. We are so pleased that the new owners are a special family who are excited about their new home. We hope they have many happy years there, just like we did. Special thanks to our incredible Realtor Brad Oppedahl for all his hard work to make this happen so quickly.

Shout out to Brad Oppedahl! He is an amazing realtor - going way above and beyond! Sold our home in Walford in one day! Even on his vacation, he was checking in and getting things done. I don't know how this move could've happened without him. If you are thinking of selling/buying in the corridor, he is the best! . So glad we called him!

Since we have moved now 8 times in 17 years, I have dealt with many realtors. Brad provided excellent service to us as home buyers; in fact, I would put him at the top of the list for the buying experiences I have had. John Peters

– John and Kelly Peters, January 2017

We really enjoyed working with Brad during our home buying process! We were new to the area and Brad went out of his way to familiarize us with the area. He was beyond accommodating with our requests and very quick to respond and take action when a new home came onto the market. We would definitely recommend him to a friend looking for a home in the Cedar Rapids area!

– Cory Foreman, December 2016

Brad was great. He was always available for my questions daily. It was my first home buying experience and he made it a very easy and painless experience. I'd use him again in the future if/when I decide to upgrade.

– Brandon Flatebo, November 2016

My wife and I were first time home buyers and were referred to Brad. He made us feel very comfortable and explained everything in detail, but also in a way we could understand. Brad was very easy to reach and always made us seem like a top priority. He showed us a TON of houses and always seemed to take our likes and dislikes from each house into consideration. He was very knowledgeable when it came to negations and was also very quick to respond when we needed help with things. My wife and I will definitely have Brad as our realtor when we go to sell our current house and buy a new one down the road!

– Ethan Lawrence, March 2016

I was looking for a partnership when finding my new home and Brad was exactly that, a partner throughout the process. I could not have expected more from a realtor. He was timely, courteous, and was able to follow through 100% of the time on any questions or concerns that I had. Brad understood my needs and knowing that I was not in a hurry, Brad did not push me in any direction which in return helped me find the perfect new home.

– Adam Rathje, December 2015

The very first house he suggested fit my needs perfectly. I know Brad listened to me carefully. He was very professional. I felt like his most important client the whole time. Very pleased! Ralph Doehrman

– Ralph Doehrman, December 2015

We really enjoyed working with Brad. We absolutely love our house... I woke up this morning and said to Ryan "I can't believe this is OUR home!" Thank you for being patient with us while we found our dream home. We will definitely be recommending you to friends and family in the future! I'm sure I will be seeing you soon! Thanks again for everything, Jennifer & Ryan

– Jennifer and Ryan, October 2015

We had a fantastic experience with Brad as our realtor. He was always available when we needed him, and all of our questions were answered very promptly. We felt that Brad was ʺon our sideʺ throughout the entire process, and he really listened as our wants and needs changed after each house we looked at. He was patient with us throughout our search, and helped us find our dream home!

Brad found the perfect condo for me within just a matter of days of working together.

– Ann Gerdts, August 2015

I wanted to take the time to let you know how appreciative I am for the service that Brad Oppedahl provided my family in selling my parent’s condominium. Given that the property was not highly valued and would appeal to a very limited demographic, Brad’s efforts to promote its sale went above and beyond anything that could have been expected. Brad provided guidance and perspective as we debated whether or not to make upgrades to the unit before we put it on the market. He recommended contractors who performed commendable work and finished on time and within their budget. Since I had to move my parents out of town, Brad supervised the remodel process for me, providing pictures of the finished work. In a time of multiple crises, Brad stepped up in a big way for my family. Once the unit was ready to show, he was creative in his marketing efforts, and kept us up-to-date. Please pass this note along to anyone and everyone who should know of his best work. Sincerely, The Rev. Dr. Mark D. Story

– Mark Story, January 2015

Brad was able to get my condo sold quickly and at the price I was hoping. Brad also patiently helped me look at dozens of properties until we found the perfect one to open up my soon to be Bed & Breakfast. He was great to work with.
