It has been a pleasure working with the Bluewater team. You’ll always be greeted by Margaret Jacobson’s smiling face when you enter the Bluewater office building and Chris Ekern is a joy to work with. I appreciate his can-do attitude and he always responds the same day I call if something has to be fixed or if the Cannon River is inching it’s way toward my door. Bluewater Properties has demonstrated why they are highly regarded and I wholeheartedly recommend them!

I honestly can’t think of a better company to work with. The Chris’ really care about the needs of their tenants. They are highly responsive and always have a smile on their faces. As a small business owner I feel heard and valued as a tenant – my needs are as important as any of the larger companies they work with. I would recommend these guys to anyone and everyone!

Bluewater was absolutely wonderful to work with. They took a sincere interest in our business and our office space needs. They made the entire development and rental process feel like a partnership, as if we were just as important in the effort as they were. We were teammates vs. tenants. No other agent or landlord even came close to this approach, which makes it really easy for us to recommend them!
