M&P Associates was the second firm that I spoke with about my situation. They were the first to actually listen to the situation I had and explained in a very detailed manner what our options were. Alan Irwin is hands down the most professional, honest and courteous surveyor I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I would highly recommend M&P for your needs. Not only did they resolve my issue, they did it for less money than we had originally agreed to because it took less time than expected. How many honest businesses are still out there that would do that?
Great work at a reasonable price. My wife and I have used them about a dozen times in the past 8 years before we installed fences at some of our rental properties and at our home. They were originally referred to us by Security Fence...another great company. The latest project is a property survey and a drawing, required before applying for a fence permit in the City of Ramsey. We actually had the owner of M & P come out, Brennan Cox. He is a SUPER nice guy and very good at his job. He couldn't find one of our front corner markers. He worked until sunset, surveyed his way in from one of the section markers, and eventually placed a new marker post, accurate to within a centimeter--wow!!! I was originally irritated that I needed a survey for a fence. But as usual, there was a surprise with our survey. Our property marker is two feet from where we thought. We're super happy and our neighbor is bummed out--we now have an extra 200 square feet of property! Last but not least, M & P is about half the price of the other survey companies I've checked out. I recommend M & P for survey work in the Twin Cities.
They caution you to expect 2 to 3 hours for the work. However mine took about one hour. He showed all the original hidden stakes to me and suggested ways I could mark the spot so I don't lose them markers. I would use them again.. Their price was more reasonable than others.
