I recently joined the office of Better Properties UP/Fircrest. JR has taken the time to make sure I have the support necessary to run my business. The other brokers in the office are professional and always willing to help if you need it. I would recommend this office and the owner JR to any agents out there with established businesses who want to keep more of what they work hard for.

Not only have I had the privilege of working as JR's Brokerage Coordinator since 2012, but over the last 3 years I've also had the opportunity to partner with him on several real estate transactions. JR is a wonderful person with a great personality. To know him is to adore him. He is truly a person for others, who works hard to ensure that he provides only the best for his clients and for the Brokers employed at his Better Properties firm. From commercial to residential sales, JR has a vast knowledge of many different aspects of the real estate industry, which enables him to provide superior service to his clients as well as to effectively mentor the Brokers within his firm.

Real Estate Broker
I am very happy working at JR Poulsen's real estate office. He strives to keep our office professional looking and pleasant to come to work. Being a "tech" guy, he has made our office "high tech".
JR is always professional. He is generous with his time, busy as he is. When I needed to go out of town, he met my sellers to go over their home inspection and helped take that file to closing! Thank you, JR, for all the help that you extend to me and I look forward to working in your office for many years!
