Restaurant Review of the Month – Handsome Hog

We Agree, Handsome Hog is the “Real Deal” This month for our restaurant review, we decided we needed to finally get over to Handsome Hog, as we had heard very good things about the restaurant from friends, including our next-door neighbor’s son, who is a server there. The restaurant is located in a great part […]

Twin Cities Market Update – September 1, 2017

With each passing August day, fewer households with school-aged children are willing to embark upon a big move for fear of unsettling kids from the important routines that lay the groundwork for a good education. But savvy sellers and buyers know that there are good deals to be made in August and well into the […]

Twin Cities Market Update – August 25, 2017

The prevailing trends have continued to prevail through the summer, which has not really been a surprise. There have not been any jolting changes in the economy that would affect residential real estate. This includes steady news for factors such as wage growth, unemployment, new construction and mortgage rates. Every locality has its unique challenges, […]

Twin Cities Market Update – August 18, 2017

As we reach into August, we’ll begin to see the volume of activity wane in anticipation of the school year.

Minnesota – Home Sweet Home!

Twin Cities Market Update – August 11, 2017

A favorable economy has kept buyers active amidst a summer of stiff competition that has led prices upward and often over the asking price. The latest recorded national unemployment rate of 4.3 is historically low and has served as a general indicator of a strong economy. If wage growth shifts into overdrive from its current […]

Full Circle for this Friendly Home!

Years ago, I helped friends from our church, Daniel and Jennifer, buy their first home in Crystal. When they accepted a position in another country, and needed to prepare to move there, we were honored to help them get their home ready to sell. We sold immediately, in multiple offers, however, the buyer was quite […]

August Restaurant Review: Terzo

Terzo is on a very cute corner on Penn and 50th in Southwest Minneapolis. It is owned by Broder’s restaurants. The ambience inside is very nice, with exceptional use of a small commercial building. There is a long bar and when you go in towards the right, an area for sitting down and eating. There […]

Residential real estate activity has remained robust through the summer months so far. New listing and sales activity may not always land exactly where desired or expected from week to week, but it is clear by gradually increasing prices and ongoing low inventory that buyer demand has not weakened.
