Jason Reed – The Duplex Doctor


#1 Seller of Twin Cities Duplexes

Our team leader, Jason Reed, has been a Real Estate agent since 2002 and involved in investment property, renovations, and the duplex world for even longer.

From 2012-2019, Jason has ranked as the #1 seller of duplexes in the Minneapolis area as well as in the entire Twin Cities area.

Rather than focus on being a mass-prospecting real estate firm, Jason decided to become the most competent, informed, and specialized real estate team in the Twin Cities concerning duplexes, triplexes, and multi-unit housing.

One of the greatest things about working with Jason is that he’s not just in this for the money – he’s passionate about the Minneapolis region, the communities around him, and investment real estate.

Jason has been married since 2005 and has twin boys that are the joy of his life. Not to mention, an evening at a Twins Game is always nice.

Education: Jason graduated in 1991 with a B.S. in Business Administration from North Dakota State University.

Faith, family, and relationships are critically important for Jason. For those of us that get to interact with Jason on a regular basis, his humility, kindness, and pursuit of the client’s best-interest are refreshing.
