We had a very positive experience with Scott & Mike. They were there to answer every question we had, every step of the way. Being first time home buyers, we didn’t know much about the process or what to expect but Mike & Scott helped and educated us every step of the way. We would highly recommend them to anyone, including first time home buyers. Awesome, educated guys!

My wife and I have purchased and sold several homes over the years. However, Scott and Mike made this our “best” buying experience. Their experience, expertise and integrity elevated our opinion of realtors to a new level. We are relocating from out of state and their “professional” assistance was crucial in making our purchase happen. These two guys are the first real estate professionals that we have had the pleasure to deal with. It is a rare experience to have our expectations exceeded. However, these gentlemen have done just that. Hanni and I will use them for all of our future real estate purchases. Thanks Scott & Mike!!!
-Jack & Hanni
I want to start off by saying Team Solutions helped my husband and I find our dream home in Golden Valley, MN. We were first time home buyers and looking for a home in Minnesota from out of state. What could have been an extremely stressful situation turned out to be a wonderful experience. Scott toured multiple homes for us while we were out of state and gave us honest input on those homes. With scott’s guidance, patience and experience he helped us find our dream home. After we moved in, my husband and I had a few questions for him about our home. Scott answered our questions promptly and even came over to our home to answer our questions. Scott went above and beyond for us and we could not be more pleased. Thank you Team Solutions!
The two of you were very professional and did a great job for me. I really appreciate all of the help you provided me since i was alone in this sale. The association was a challenge to say the least. I am ecstatic to be done with all of that. Thank you so very much for the gift card, that was very kind of you.
Working with Michael & Scott has been the BEST experience with a realtor that we have had in the past 10 years! That’s high praise when considering that in the past decade we have bought and sold 11 properties. We are thoroughly impressed by their warm, yet professional, demeanor. The marketing plan they presented to us was above anything we had yet experienced. From our initial meeting through closing they kept us involved, up-to-date, and supported us through the entire process. Even when we experienced a problem with our past condo association they remained supportive in calming our concerns, involved in finding a solution and completely processional. They were always available to us. Scott & Michael, your hard work, graciousness, professionalism, and concern for your clients is unmatched. You are a class act. Thanks guys.
-Lyle & Janet
Scott & Mike are phenomenal realtors! Their knowledge and experience make a stressful and sometimes frustrating process as seamless and enjoyable as possible. We cannot recommend them enough, they are truly fantastic!
-Alan & Marissa
Amazing! Scott and Mike got us into our ideal home in a market we thought wasn’t possible. They were very respectful of our wishes and didn’t pressure us towards anything different. Their knowledge, expertise, and advice all made for an incredible home buying experience! I am recommending them to everyone I meet!
Thank you so much!
-Richard & Shannon
We’re repeat customers of Mike and Scott, and have referred them to friends and colleagues. We keep coming back because of their industry experience and superior customer service. They are unbeatable! They know the market, the builders, the suburbs and contractors. From staging to selling, from buying and settling-in, they have the bases covered. We followed their staging advice to the ”T” and sold both our houses in hours. They also have great personalities, patience and work great as a team. They want you in the house you’re going to be happy in, and they listen to your needs and work hard to find the houses that best fit your wish-list. They aren’t looking to be your realtor of the moment, they’re your realtors for the long haul.
-Angela and Mustafa
Well, Thank God for Scott & Mike – We were so lost on how to proceed with buying a house. We needed a lot of direction and “the boys” were so patient and had all the answers we needed. It was all so seamless and we couldn’t be happier with our home! Thanks for the great experience!
-Bill & Kevin
Mike and Scott,
We had an awesome experience working with Scott and Mike. They made selling our home as easy as possible and were invaluable in finding our new home and negotiating with the builder. They’re the best at what they do and are wonderful guys!
-Ryan & Stacy
Mike and Scott,
Great time working with Scott and Mike. Bent over backwards to accommodate my limited time schedule. Top Notch!
Mike and Scott,
Scott & Mike have been wonderful & easy to work with. Their knowledge of the industry nd commitment to customer service is second to none. I would highly recommend hiring Scott & Mike as your Real Estate Agents!
-Frank & Audrey
Mike and Scott,
Dear Scott & Mike:
We first would like to thank you for all you did for us in finding our first home!! Our experience in buying our first home would not have been the same if you two were not there to help us with a huge decision!
After the first house falling through we were so happy to see that you had our best interests at heart! We really appreciated that even though that home fell thru we got right back out there on the search again. It paid off! We LOVE our first home & we can’t thank you enough for everything!! I’m sure you will hear from us in the future for the next home!!
-Shawn & Karissa
Mike and Scott,
We would recommend Team Solutions to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. It was time for us to downsize and found Mike while looking at a condo to purchase. We had not put our house on the market so he offered to help us sell our home. We decided to list our home on the Monday after Thanksgiving , even though the timing around the holidays didn’t seem the best, and had an offer Wednesday, thanks to Mike & Scott. They know how to price, stage and market your home to sell quickly, without any pressure. After smooth closings on both our home and condo, we felt confident that Team Solutions was representing our interest as both seller and buyer.
-Joel & Naomi
Mike and Scott,
I loved working with Mike & Scott. They were always very open to my thoughts and knew exactly what type of home I was looking for. Everytime I had a question they responded to me right away! Even though I wasn’t a client looking for an expensive home & mine only cost 99k they made me feel like a million dollar client. When I had issues with my lender Mike & Scott took care of what needed to get done & I knew I was in good hands. Mike & Scott are kind, caring, generous people & I have told many friends and family about them. For as long as they are in the business – they will get mine!!
Thank you Mike & Scott!
Mike and Scott,
Thank you so much for making our first home buying/shopping process so enjoyable! We could not have asked for better Realtors! We will have to have you over once we get settled in! Also, thank you for the gift card- the bonfire is one of our favorite spots!
-Zach & Kacie
Thank you so much for all of your help with finding us a new home! We really appreciate all the time you spent with us and all the knowledge you shared with us! It was really comforting to know we could trust you to point out the good and the bad in the houses we looked at. Thank you also for the Bonfire gift card – we love that place and enjoyed a great dinner after moving in to the house!
-Ben & Alison
Scott went way beyond what most real estate agents would put forth in effort, consideration, honesty, PROFESSIONALISM, and work ethic. He is such a great representative for Coldwell Banker Burnet! He sold my townhouse in Rosemount in only 5 days, which was due to the wonderful staging, and he helped me purchase another townhouse WAY NORTH of where he usually conducts business (Shoreview). We are so happy in our new place… it is all because of SCOTT (and Mike LaVelle, too).
Please give him all of the accolades and remuneration that he so richly deserves! I have bought & sold about 10 houses, and he made the transaction so smooth and effortless, compared with these earlier sales.
Thank you so much!
-Suzanne Bradford and Mike Adsit
We have worked with Mike and Scott for 8 years and have gone through 4 buy/sell transactions with them. In all that time they have always given us the guidance and suggestions we’ve needed to sell our house quickly and get out of it what we needed financially and have never steered us wrong on a purchase. We have stuck with them because we truly believe that they are the best and will recommend them to everyone we meet. They are type of people that invest themselves not only in the transaction but your family. They always make us feel like we are important to them not just for a paycheck, but because it’s the right thing to do. I cannot tell you how phenomenal they have been for us and we will continue to use them and recommend them for as long as they sell houses.
Thanks Mike & Scott!
We love you guys!
-Aaron & Kristy
Thanks Scott & Mike!!
We had a great experience with you. Team Solutions was very helpful and knowledgeable. I appreciate the business services as well as the friendship we have established. You went above and beyond selling us a home. We will recommend Team Solutions to all our family and friends. Thanks again,
-Ruth & Mike
Thanks Team Solutions!
We just thought a special thanks was needed, you two are the best. Rob and I just want to let you know that we could not have asked for better real estate agents. We never thought buying our first home could be so easy. Our first party will be in May and the two of you better be here, a lot of our friends will be here and we want you two to meet them. We have told them a lot about you two, and let them know you come highly recommended. Thanks for all the patience and understanding that you gave us, I know other real estate agents would have dumped us by the road side. Thanks again, your are the best,
-Rob & Andrea
Hi Scott & Mike,
This is the third home that we have bought, we have worked with about eight real estate agents over the past 14 years, and we both agree that Mike and Scott were both the most professional and honest agents we have worked with. We buy homes about every four years and we know that the next time we look for a new home, Mike and Scott will be finding that new home again for us. What we liked most about them is that they were very patient and understood our needs and wants, they took the extra steps to make sure that we were only looking at homes that were in good neighborhoods and that the homes were quality built. A lot of the time, they would go out and look at the property before showing it to us, this eliminated a lot of wasted time looking at homes that they knew we would not like. I would recommend Mike and Scott to anyone looking for that, how would I say it, THE PERFECT REAL ESTATE AGENTS. Thanks ‘TEAM SOLUTIONS’!
Scott Seeley & Mike La Velle the best realty service I have ever experienced. This is my second house through Scott & Mike they are outstanding. They have my business for life.
We are extremely pleased with the services of Team Solutions; will not look elsewhere for help when it comes to dealing with real estate whether it is selling or buying a property!
In the toughest of markets our home sold within 14 days of listing because of Team Solutions advice on selling price, timing of listing, prepping as well as staging the property to accentuate its unique features.
Team Solutions insight professionalism and just being a good fun group to work with are in perfect proportions to make the experience. We have worked with other agents in the past, however, there is comparison to Team Solutions.
Our multiple experiences with Team Solutions have been wonderful. We highly recommend their services.
We had no intention of moving into a 55+ building when les read in a local newspaper about the woodshop that is one of the amenities at the Gramercy in Burnsville. It was then that we decided to visit one of the completed Gramercy buildings. The amenities offered including the location and the prospect of a community atmosphere attracted us. Within a few months we signed a subscription agreement to join the Gramercy Burnhaven Community. Since then we have never looked back.
It is now nearly four years since we moved into our new home and it is even more exciting. The atmosphere here is warm, friendly and very supportive. Living here has provided us with a circle of friends that was difficult to build in single-family housing or a town home. Here at the Gramercy a variety of activities are provided by residents through committees. They include travel, recreational activities, community happy hours, Wednesday morning coffees and a wide variety of other functions.
When we first told our children about the Gramercy they said, “You are not ready to move into a 55+ building”. Now they are as excited about us living here as we are. They enjoy using the clubhouse that offers swimming, virtual golf, sauna, and hot tub as well as the clubroom for larger family gatherings. We truly feel that we are part of a large extended family.
-Les & Sharon
As everyone knows, Dick and I love it here. It offers everything including wonderful caring folks. Our cards friends are fun and no one takes the game seriously. My water aerobic friends are great. Good exercise and plenty of laughs. I don’t understand why the men don’t show up. We girls are harmless! There are many more things to do without ever leaving the building.
We are very proud of this place and love showing it off to family and friends. So the snow can fall and the wind can blow, but here at the Gramercy we are all nice, snug and warm having a good time. So let the winter come! We are ready for a good time!
-Dick & Jeanette
Our experience at Gramercy has been delightful. The staff is great and the people that live here are fun, nice and very caring.
We love everything being on one floor in our condo and also being able to just lock our door and leave for Arizona in the winter. Yes, I can’t say we don’t miss our view of Prior Lake but, at night when we see all those twinkling lights from Burnsville, it makes up for it.
We also enjoy the many activities such as Wednesday coffee, Friday afternoon cocktail and social hour, various card games such as Hand and Foot Canasta, 500, Texas Hold’em Poker etc. There are also many opportunities to go on trips and excursions. In other words, at Gramercy, there is something for everyone!
-Kenny & Sharon
We have lived in a house all our lives, and the thought of moving to something like this was challenging. I must say it has made a different person out of me. We have adjusted very well, and the staff here is absolutely the best and helps us in so many ways. The atmosphere, the decorating and the amenities are top-notch. I use to be a total introvert, but getting to know my fellow members of the community has totally changed me. I have joined committees and participated in social functions, more than I would have before. We spend most of the summer at our lake home. When we lived in a house, we had to worry about security, maintenance etc. Now we just lock the door and go, spend as long as we want relaxing and enjoying ourselves. When we come home, everyone welcomes us home. It is such a wonderful family like atmosphere to come home to.
-Pat & Marie
When we finally arrived at 15001 Burnhaven Drive we vowed we would like it here because we would never move again. That decision has been reinforced many times and in many ways.
Each time we attend Coffee Hour, Happy Hour or other get-togethers we meet people from different walks of life and different talents but with the same objective to enjoy life at Gramercy. There is always someone willing to chat, play cards or share ideas.
One memorable moment came shortly after we moved into our new home. We were inundated with the first snow storm of the season. We looked out and enjoyed the beauty of it knowing all the negative aspects such as clearing the driveway and sidewalks would be taken care of for us— no worries. One of the hidden blessings which we had not thought about is the elimination of our annual disagreement regarding cleaning the garage and basement. Well, we still have the storage area but it is small in comparison—- only one or two days of not talking to each other instead of a whole week.
As we near the end of our first year at Gramercy, we say, it’s been great and we expect it to continue to be so.
-Charlie & Verna
My friends have all asked me how I like my new home. My standard reply is always, “I just love it.” When they come to visit me and see it, they understand why. They comment on how beautiful the building and decorating is and how lovely the grounds are and all the amenities. The lobby, business center, physical fitness center, library, parlor, and of course the lovely Gramercy Room. Also the clubhouse with the pool, hot tub, sauna, and virtual golf.
When I first started looking for a place to move to, I looked at townhomes, condos & coops, but I always kept going back to look at Gramercy, I knew this was the place for me. Now I am so happy with my decision, it is the best move I have ever made.
This is a wonderful community. All the people in our building are friendly, caring people. They all seem to want to get involved & be active. We have a lot of activities already in place and people can become as involved as they want. The Nichols Company has been most supportive in getting us settled in and helping out when any problems arise. I love living in the Burnhaven Gramercy!
I shopped for several years at different senior housing, touring many different ones, and Gramercy always remained on top of my list. The Gramercy staff and all personnel are #1 on my list. Accommodating and making it to your specifications always, so enjoyable to work with. They do everything first class, & to your specification. I love my house I lived in it 42 years in Apple Valley and have never missed it since I moved here. Security, amenities, floor plan, social functions and you can be as involved as you want to be, all the people are just like friends you’ve known for a long time! It’s great! I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but at Gramercy on Burnhaven. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts!
Gramercy is more than a place to live for me. It is a community/family of friends.
Everything that is done here is done with class. I am so proud to bring my friends here, especially for the first time.
Many fun get-togethers have already taken place in the building. I close my door and head to the Club Room. No driving involved.
The Grand Opening Dinner was the highlight. The residents were treated like celebrities. Every detail was taken care of. It truly was a celebration of our new home and new lifestyle.
Each of the countless cooperatives in the metro area has its own personality. This is based on location, architectural design, membership and purchasing arrangements. Some give the appearance of assisted living facilities, some as hotels and some, like our Gramercy Club on Burhaven, as resorts.
Here we enjoy the privacy and comfort of our own home.
When we step out our door we mingle with a host of friendly and supportive neighbors in beautifully furnished common spaces.
The desire for physical activity can be met with facilities such as a work out room, a virtual golf center or a year round swimming pool complete with hot tub and sauna.
The building site consists of trees, shrubs, ponds, fountains and family gathering terraces.
All of these things make for a rewarding year round resort living experience.
-Don & Audrey
We were not anticipating moving for 5-10 years from the home we built in Eagan. Les saw an article in the local paper concerning a new Gramercy to be built in Burnsville and that it would include a wood working shop. The idea of having full ownership in our unit was very intriguing and that we would also own as a cooperative, the building.
Several amenities, including the work shop, that it is maintenance free, has an indoor pool, the underground heated garage and car wash and having a Resident Services Coordinator on staff, having a secure building and mail drops were also important along with all the other amenities of a large home at the fraction of the cost, were very appealing.
After moving in we have acquired a large circle of friends through the many social events including Wednesday morning coffee and Friday Happy Hour. It is so nice to have friends in our age group and have some of the same interests.
If anything would happen to either of us, we know we would have a wonderful support system. We consider the residents here as “family.”
-Les & Sharon
The Gramercy Club at Burnhaven has met my expectations of why I moved here. Living is easy and I can be as social as I want to be. There are many opportunities to meet with other residents. Many events sponsored and put-on by us residents. Still a neighborhood environment within the same building. Some outside activities like bus rides together are good opportunities to bond. The common areas including the swimming pool and virtual golf areas, eliminate the need to have them as part of your home. Finally it’s great in the winter time to enter the elevator and go into a warm, non-frosted-up car. The Gramercy manage-ment here is TOP-NOTCH.
Coming from a large and friendly neighborhood where we lived 38 years. The building was everything we wanted, but how were the people there? We should not have been surprised. We do more now than we ever did before with all the friends that we have made since being here. Life is full of fun and friendships, and everyone is so friendly it oozes out of every nook and cranny. I don’t exaggerate but just say this is “The Good Life”.
-Bill & Marge
We lived in the same neighborhood for forty plus years. We do not miss that big house and yard one bit. We still visit with the neighbors from time to time. We love everything about our new home, from the screened in deck to the laundry room. We have met very nice people through the social activities. It is wonderful to be able to go play cards and not have to worry about the weather. The water aerobics and fitness center are also wonderful.
-Don & Donna
