Twin Cities Market Update – November 10, 2017

The national unemployment rate registered in at 4.1 percent for October 2017. To put that in perspective, joblessness has not been this low in the U.S. since December 2000.

Goal Accomplished! John & Jonell Downsized to a Main Level Townhome

I met John and Jonell several years ago when they were first thinking about purchasing a villa they could downsize into. However, it was more important for them to be in the right development, ideally new construction, than to adhere to a specific moving timeline. We explored several different developments over the years, even going […]

Twin Cities Market Update – November 3, 2017

The level of real estate activity should subside each week for the remainder of the year. Savvy real estate professionals not only begin to plan now for another successful year next year, but they continue to track the trends to see where prices, listings and other metrics are at relative to last year and all […]

But not all buyers are equal. Consider instead the first-time buyers with no children, relocated employees, investment […]

Twin Cities Market Update – October 13, 2017

Few cities and neighborhoods – around the nation and locally – are turning heads as hotbeds of new housing inventory. Residential real estate markets that have had a hard time dealing with a reduction in the number of homes available for sale are now also struggling to keep up with new listings levels from last […]

Finding a Home on the Right Lot!

I met Mikael and Sonja a few years ago when they relocated back to the Twin Cities area and I had the privilege of helping them purchase their first home in Maple Grove. It was a gorgeous, newer single-family home in a tightknit community. However, as their family grew, they knew it was time for […]

Welcome Home, Lukas & Laura!

I met Lukas and Laura through my brother, who kindly referred them to me when they decided to start looking for their first home. They were recently married, working great jobs, and starting to think about building a family. We started off the conversation via phone and email about a year before they really dove […]
