My Client Reviews
Jerry was super patient with me even after taking 3 years to finally pull the trigger on my first home. He was willing to set up something for me to look at a home any time I found one I wanted to see in person. He knew what to look for with my requests and needs I wanted in a home and how to help me along the way of buying my first home. I would definitely recommend Jerry to help find your next home!

Jerry has been doing this for a long time and it shows. His knowledge of the current buying/selling market and local knowledge of the area is astounding. He is extremely professional and friendly to work with and if he doesn't know something specifically then he certainly knows someone who does to get you the answers your looking for. We used Jerry to buy the home that we lived in for 6 years when we first moved to the area and again to sell that same home as we moved on. As a military family we were able to describe what it was we were looking for with regards to both buying and selling our home and Jerry was willing and able to deliver. I would highly recommend Jerry to fulfill your housing requirements and needs. That doesn't even speak to his extremely friendly and fun loving personality. He is an excellent family man who I knew always had our best interests in mind when we were dealing with the housing market. Definitely a stand up guy!!!
SOLD IN 1 DAY!!! We had a short notice military move from Minot. We contacted Jerry on a Thursday telling him we needed to sell our home. He had pictures taken and listed the home on Friday, and by Saturday we had an offer in hand. Outstanding! Jerry walked us through the process, from researching comparable listings, to preparing our home for sale and show, to educating us on the current market. Jerry is an amazing professional, who really knows the market and the business. He helped us get the maximum amount for our home. He wisely advised us to list the home for more than we were thinking, resulting in a quick offer and an extra $20,000 in our pocket. We highly recommend Jerry Thomas for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Minot area.
Previous review from ROBERT B.
Jerry did a great job helping my wife and I relocate to Minot. He made himself fully available while we were looking, gave us a list of houses ahead of time to review, arranged showings to meet our timetable, and took time to help us think through the pros and cons of all the houses that we toured. When in came time to put in an offer, he showed us a list of comparable sales, negotiated our terms, and helped us finalize the paperwork. Throughout the entire process, Jerry was knowledgeable, professional, and available. He is EXACTLY everything a Realtor is suppose to be. We will definitely use him again and can recommend him to others without hesitation.
I am extremely pleased with my decision to use Jerry for the sale of our properties. He is the ultimate 'can do' kind of agent. He happily did whatever needed to be done to get the properties show ready. Best of all he did what he said he would do; he quickly got qualified buyers for the properties.
I highly recommend our realtor Jerry Thomas to anyone buying or selling property. We had land owned by many relatives and he was superb in handling the sale in a professional manner. We would not hesitate in using his realtor services again. Thanks Jerry Donald Meronuck
Very good at reviewing other properties that we came up with a number to sell our property at so that it moved in a timely maner very happy that it sold as quick as it did he is very helpful
Jerry worked very hard for us selling our home and finding a new one that was a perfect fit for us. I appreciated how he always answered my calls and text anytime I tried to contact him and had answers for all my questions. He always kept us informed. He help guide me in the selling and purchasing of both homes and helped me to feel like the decisions being made on my end were the right ones- and they were! I would use Jerry again for any real estate needs.
This was my first home purchase. Jerry assisted me in the entire process beautifully! He made the whole experience pleasant, and enjoyable. I am grateful for all his work and professional efforts. I will confidently recommend his services to any home buyer or seller.
Jerry helped us buy our home as well as sell our home - and there's a reason we knew we needed to go back to him to help us sell it! Jerry knows the Minot area extremely well and his experience with the market here is a huge help to new Minot residents - especially military. He was transparent throughout the process and let us know exactly what we needed to do to make our home competitive when it came time to sell.
Jerry was great to work with, it sounded like he looked into the neighborhoods past and what all goes on on the street, every house we looked at he bought up points that I didnt really seem to look at prior.
I was referred to Jerry by family, and It was a great decision! Jerry was extremely helpful and dedicated to helping me understand the home buying process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Great realtor! Second time Jerry has been my realtor. Both times i was very happy with what he did for me/us. Very knowledgeable and reliable.
using Jerry and Coldwell Banker was a good decision. He could not have been more cooperative and made this process painless. He answered every question and guided us through the entire purchase with great skill. I would advise friends to use him. I can easily give him 5 stars.
Response from Jerry
Thank you Steve!
The sale of my house was tough, it seemed that there was issues that seemed to keep coming up. Jerry just kept plugging away at eveything and got it done. He checked In with me several times to see how things were going on my end and also to keep me up to speed on his end. If I ever need an agent again he will be the one that am going to call.

The sale of my house was a tough one,but it seemed to be one thing after another kept slowing things down. Jerry just kept after it and got it sold. He checked in very often to see how things were going on my end and also to let me know how things were progressing on his end. If I am going to ever need an agent again he is going to be the one I call.
Response from Jerry
To put it plain and simple Jerry was OUTSTANDING! He was there though out the whole process informing us on every detail. I will definitely recommend him to anyone interested in selling there house.
Response from Jerry
Thank you Jerome! If you ever have a real estate question please call or email anytime!
Jerry was great to work with. He took time out of his weekend to show me houses, did what he had available to show me what I was looking for, showed me areas that may be a good location for my career, and I believe he really looked for the best opportunity for me. He also went above and beyond on keeping me in the loop of exactly what was happening to the property before, during, and after making the offer. I heard from Jerry about the paperwork that needed my attention before the loan office had told me. Even after closing he is checking in to make sure that the property is in good condition and I'm settling in well, and with this being my first ever big purchase that takes a lot of stress off me knowing even after his job is done as a realtor that he still wants to make sure I'm still 100% happy with this purchase.
Jerry really helped us as first time home buyers and put our worries at ease. He knew the local areas and was very flexible with our busy schedules. He made the entire process quick and efficient. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house!
Jerry helped us sell our home in Minot. He was always available to answer any questions and also gave us recommendations on what he thought would benefit us the most. He also has a great understanding of what it takes to sell a home in Minot. We had a great experience using Jerry and would recommend him to anyone interested in selling in the Minot area.

Jerry Thomas was fantastic to work with. He was very honest and patient with us on our purchase. When it came time to sell our house he had it sold the day he put it on the market. He did a great job for us.
We found Jerry easy to talk to, and could convey our concerns and know that he cared about our viewpoint too. He is honest and forthright about what a potential buyer would perceive, and worked with us to market the home. He is a fulltime realtor, so there were no lags in time for him to respond to us. Most importantly, he's part of a Team, and they worked together to bring our listing to closing. I still feel that 45 minutes is not long enough for an open house. It's not like visitation at a funeral home; this may be your next home, and you should have a more leisurely time there; especially in the current market conditions. We like more time to process and see ourselves in that home! Even though Jerry checked on our vacant house frequently, we still had to arrange for yard caretakers. It would be beneficial if the realty had a sideline business (contracted) that could care for vacant listings, and of course, bill the homeowner. It would ease concerns. I know how unimpressive it is to see a listing and the yard has been neglected because there is no responsible person. The realtor should be able to have the authority and trust to make a service request and be known as the company with the well maintained properties. With our ever-changing lifestyles, you could gain, ie, military, business because they have to leave the area, and would know someone responsible has their eye out there, especially after a storm. I had a sound referral from a friend to call Jerry, and I wasn't disappointed. Thank you.
Jerry gave us great guidance moving into the area. He clearly knows the market and was able to guide us to a home that we love.
Jerry Thomas is the absolute best!! First showing with in days of listing!! Sold in just over a month when other houses in our neighborhood were sitting on the market for over 100 days!!! Very knowledgeable and helped walk us through the whole selling process!! Very down to earth and put all the legal stuff in words we could understand!!
Jerry helped me sell my starter home and purchase the next one. The sales were fast and easy. All questions asked were answered and I received reminders from him regarding any appointments necessary to close (i.e. home inspections, appraisals, closing dates). I would definitely use Jerry again for any future real estate needs.
Let me tell you about a few historic purchases you should have been a part of. The Louisiana purchase in 1803. Apple IPO in 1980. Berkshire Hathaways IPO for its Class A stock in 1964. The Alaskan purchase in 1867. Most likely, you didnt get in on these sweet deals. You cant keep making the same mistakes over and over, thats just foolish. Do you want to continue the trend of missing out on your chance to make a great investment? If you said yes, well shoot, just ignore this review and call your weird cousin Tony to help you find your next home. But, if you read the first part of this review and decided you didnt want to miss out on your next chance for a great opportunity, or maybe even said to yourself, no, no I don't want to call my weird cousin Tony. I want some good advice and solid representation when I make my next purchase then you my friend are in luck. Jerry is the realtor for you. With his experience and knowledge of the local market, neighborhoods and economy you can rest easy knowing you wont be living in cousin Tonys garage eating straight mayonnaise and whatever else you can dig out of his beer fridge when he isnt looking. Jerry will help you find the neighborhood and property that you will be happy to call home. Call Jerry today and get in on that next sweet deal. Youll rest easy with him working for you, and at the end of the day you wont have to live in a box, down by oak park, near the bridge, fighting off geese for bread scraps.
Jerry was amazing to work with! I feel he went above and beyond what most realtors will do for their clients! I would totally recommend him to others!
Jerry, the perfect realtor! Straight shooter, was honest and straight forward with all the questions we ask throughout the entire (long) home buying process. never pushed us into buying anything, we looked at 15-20 houses before settling, he let us take our time. Couldn't have asked for a better realitor. Thanks Jerry!!!!
Jerry truly made the purchase process effortless on my side. He found the perfect property for our needs. We made the purchase as an out of town investment and he went the extra mile assisting in inspections, insurance recommendations and the appraisal. I appreciated his prompt responses, readiness and willingness to accommodate our need for a remote closing. I would heartily refer to him to any of my family or friends.
Davis & Jenny W.
Jerry is everything we could have hoped for in a realtor. He takes the time to understand your wants and needs, then works tirelessly to make them a reality. His dedication is incredible - just schedule some showings with him and you'll see what I mean. The best thing about working with Jerry his refreshing honesty - he always told us exactly what he thought and didn't sugarcoat anything. Even after closing, Jerry made sure our transition was smooth - truly above and beyond what is required. In the Minot area, I'll never call a different realtor.
John & Ann H.
I'm sure Jerry has facets of all the strengths listed, but we marked the ones that were most notable to us. What best describes us as buyers are more then one of those listed. I'm a retiree, relocating & downsizing. Why in this form it allows to mark multiple strengths for the realtor but only one description as a buyer is like... go figure!
Jerry was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the buying process. He made buying a house easy and fun. I will recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you Jerry.
Working with Jerry was a true pleasure. He answered my questions and made suggestions that I hadn't even thought of while we were in the house-hunting process and then later when I found my new home. So appreciated his expertise, definitely reassured me that I had the right realtor working for me.
