Restaurant Review: Hai Hai

Kerby and Cristina are BUSY, BUSY leading the team, selling homes, and preparing for baby #4 to make her appearance, so I offered to take the restaurant review off their plate (pun intended) this month, and took a friend of mine, Blake, with me to try a restaurant I’ve been wanting to try for some […]

Fun Run Video Unleashed!

  Sunshine… birds chirping… 65-degree weather… we had a PERFECT day for our KC Fun Run this past month at French Regional Park. We had roughly 300 of our clients/friends/family join us for some family fun, including bouncy houses for the kids, which were quite the hit! Thanks to all who made it out – […]

Twin Cities Market Update – May 25, 2018

Inventory and days on market both continue to skim along at historic lows, while buyer demand is creating competitive purchase offer situations that are increasing the number of homes sold for more than the asking price. This practice is nothing new in more popular areas, but higher offers are becoming normal outside of the hottest […]

Twin Cities Market Update – May 18, 2018

Year-over-year percentage changes for housing metrics like inventory, median sales price and days on market have sometimes looked dramatic over the past few years in most markets across the country not named Houston. But as faster sales and higher prices persist, another trend is beginning to emerge: reliability. Although more market balance is preferred, the […]

Twin Cities Market Update – May 11, 2018

As with last spring, the home-purchasing season will be competitive this year. Demand is still strong, especially in light of rising mortgage rates. Savvy consumers will want to get into a home before rates go up again. Amidst an environment of low inventory, buyers need to remain watchful of new listings and make their offers […]

Congrats on finding “the one”, Cory and Emily!

Twin Cities Market Update – May 4, 2018

After at least two years of hearing reports that both sellers and builders are gaining in confidence due to an expected positive return on investment, we are starting to see some upward movement in the New Listings metric locally and throughout the nation. Although there may not necessarily be positives from week to week, a […]

Restaurant Review: Jax Café

On a recent Sunday, we had the privilege of being invited to Jax Café for brunch by our neighbor. Our neighbor is the manager there and a total standup guy (more on that in a bit), but because Jax is a family business and an amazing pillar in the Northeast Minneapolis community, we wanted to […]

Twin Cities Market Update – April 27, 2018

One begins to wonder just how long the housing market can work in the favor of sellers. Low inventory continues to create a competitive situation for buyers that has sales prices meeting asking prices and often going over for well-priced homes that show well. As long as buyers continue to form new households and feel […]
