Buying or selling a house is exciting and should be fun.  However, there are many things to be aware of during the process, which is why working with an experienced Realtor is extremely important.  The process involves much more than simply finding a home or putting a for sale sign in the yard.  Here are just a few of the benefits I can offer to you as you get ready to purchase or sell a home:

- Gary and Nanci Anderson with their Family -

It was the fall of 2018 when we introduce many of you to the disease Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD).  Last fall, the Berg Larsen Group chose The Association of Frontotemporal Degeneration as their charity in support of my husband, Gary, who was stricken with this disease in 2016. Over those two autumn months, the Berg Larsen Group raised an incredible $1,700 for the organization. Since the fall campaign, my family and I have continued to fight the fight against FTD by sponsoring fundraisers  - Food for Thought and participating in regional dementia conference – The Meeting of the Minds in March 2019.  Our family is blessed to have a circle of amazing friends, colleagues and family walking this journey

Berg Larsen Group Successful Realtors in Minneapolis and Edina

Every Spring, the Berg Larsen Group works with an organization that is close to a team member and helps raise awareness and proceeds for them. This April and May, we will be donating $100 to Youth Frontiers with every new listing we put on the Twin Cities real estate market. Our team member, Kate Wall, was introduced to the organization four years ago from a client, Patty Beadle, board and staff member for Youth Frontiers. Having first been invited to an ethical leadership luncheon, Kate loved what she learned about the organization and was soon invited to be on the organizing committee for the ethical leadership lunch, an annual fundraiser.

"Youth Frontiers’ Mission is to provide schools with experiences that inspire character, civility, and

Two years ago, Gary Anderson, a colleague of ours in the Coldwell Banker Burnet Minneapolis Lakes office, was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD), the most common form of dementia for people under 60. Due to the quick acting and debilitating disease, Gary was forced to retire early as a realtor.

This Spring, we invited Gary’s wife, Nanci, to join our sales team. Working full time as a vice president for a company and taking Gary’s former real estate business, Nanci is committed and hardworking (a Superwoman), both for her family and for our team.

From seaside to suburbs, countryside to city limits, Cape Cod homes are instantly recognizable just about anywhere. Its popular structure and established identity resonate across the country through variations on those iconic features.

 Cape Cod homes are one-and-a-half stories, simple in shape and surrounded by a nostalgic aura. My listing located at 1317 Tyrol Trail is a classic, all-brick move-in ready home. Steeply gabled roofs with sloping eaves, a central chimney, and windows and dormers framing the front door – these are the unmistakable style features of a Cape Cod home. It is timeless, both classic and contemporary, and bestirs those “home sweet home” memories.

Another year has come and gone, but what a year it was!  From ramblers to lake lodges, custom woodwork to open kitchens, and stunning views to a private pub, 2017 was a year to remember.

Much like the previous year, 2017 saw quick movement of homes under $350,000, and, to our delight, an increase from 2016 in closings of homes over $1,000,000.  From the transactions I closed in 2017 (below), it appears that buyers, more and more, are looking for homes that are new-construction or recently updated.  As is always true, the location of a home makes a huge impact on price and time on market.  I expect that trend will continue into 2018 and my market knowledge will help to price a home so that it sells as quickly as possible.  I also suspect there will be

Autumn is the time of year that brings those beautiful blends of colors, crisp fresh air, hot apple cider, warm woolen socks, and a well-tended fire for pure comfort. The fireplace is an architectural feature that has morphed from a practical necessity into the focal point of any living room, a social necessity for every season.

At 4400 Golden Valley Road, the fireplace is the perfect accent to the clean white interior of the living room. Its central position invites everyone to gather around. Off the kitchen is a private library with warm tones and dark wood trim that enriches a second lively fire, creating an intensely comfortable private retreat.

Throughout September and October, the Berg Larsen Group will be donating $100 to the MacPhail Center for Music with each new listing we put on the Twin Cities market. The MacPhail Center uses music education to build connections, engage communities, and spread joy and beauty.

Art takes many shapes and forms, and offers a window to other ways of life, societies, and cultures. Literature is a great record of social history and architectural styles. Often, an author’s inspiration for characters and setting comes directly through their own experiences with such. Through her research into the houses of British literature, Phyllis Richardson found “literature is filled with thinking, writing, and imagining houses in ways that betray a particular
