October Restaurant Review: Nong’s Thai Cuisine

Kerby and Cristina had a crazy, busy month, not giving them time to get out and review a new restaurant. That is where we (Bonnie and I) stepped in and took one for the team (there really wasn’t any convincing needed – Bonnie is a total foodie and I just love food). We decided to […]

Twin Cities Market Update – October 6, 2017

Last year’s national chorus was about how high buyer demand, a sunny economic outlook and enticingly low mortgage rates were propping up sales and prices in spite of low inventory. That refrain is still common enough, but regional changes continue to become more pronounced, whether due to weather, differing employment expectations or varying new construction […]

Twin Cities Market Update – September 29, 2017

According to the National Association of Home Builders, there is a rising demand in the new-home market spurred on by ongoing job and economic growth, the continuation of attractive mortgage rates and increased consumer confidence. And there does appear to be a notable increase in building or announced building projects around the country. Builder confidence […]

Twin Cities Market Update – September 22, 2017

For several years, residential real estate markets across the country were relatively similar except for a few pockets of extreme price increases in the west and a few areas of slower post-recession recovery in the east. Regional market diversion is becoming more common. Natural disasters play a part, as do factors such as the proclivities […]

Kristeen’s Story Made Our Day!

Congratulations On Your New Condo, Jenn!

Another successful closing this week for Susan and Eric. They purchased a wonderful home for their daughter, who had been living with family friends for the past 5 months, waiting for the perfect place to call home. It was a long road (with 3 other homes not passing inspection) to find the right one in […]

Twin Cities Market Update – September 15, 2017

Market trends have remained steady for the last couple of years, which has allowed residential real estate to flourish in terms of sales activity and buyer demand. Even when total sales are not measuring forward in year-over-year comparisons, it is evident that the market is responding positively to wider economic indicators. Higher prices, fewer days […]

Twin Cities Market Update – September 8, 2017

Conversationally speaking, it has been a busy and exciting summer for residential real estate. Much has been said about low supply, higher prices and speedy sales, but the truth of the matter is that buyers are snatching up desirable homes no matter the trends. Good transactions are occurring with smart lending practices. Although more inventory […]

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 […]
