Restaurant Review of the Month – Burch Steak and Pizza Bar

Steak Upstairs AND Pizza Downstairs… Twice the Nice! We ventured out alone one night for date night – the first time without our five-month-old.

Twin Cities Market Update – May 12, 2017

Much of the news surrounding the housing market is about climbing prices and continued decreases in inventory on a year-over-year basis.

Twin Cities Market Update – May 5, 2017

It is a lucrative time to sell a home, and it would appear that it will remain that way for the time being.

5 Hidden Pizza Joints in the West Metro

Is there really anything better than a good pizza? Sure, we all like to get dressed up and go out to the hottest new restaurant or make reservations for some place where you end up using six forks, four spoons, and who-knows-how-many knives during a five-course meal.

During the first quarter of 2017, housing affordability has clearly become an issue for some buyers, as prices continue to rise amidst strong demand.
