What is your favorite memory in a Minneapolis Park?

Giving Back to Our Parks

The beauty of Minnesota is its seasons, we have them all. Summers heat seems to be finer due to our cold, and sometimes harsh winters. The splendor of Fall is leaves changing to brilliant colors that stop us in our tracks and inspire us to go on long walks bundled in cozy sweaters.

This Spring, throughout April and May, as we celebrate the coming of green grass, the blooming of flowers and the warming of our lakes, we’re donating $100 for every new listing we put on the market to the local non-profit People for Parks.

Do you do your own house painting? 

I always have; I find it therapeutic and rewarding.  It is the easiest and least expensive thing you can do to change a room.  We purchased our home in September of last year and have slowly been painting our way through the house.  We finally made it to the loft, which is just a spiral staircase climb above the master bedroom this week.

Yes, it's December and the days of summer are long behind us. And, with that, days spent on the lake soaking up the sun and swimming in the cool waters. But, here's your chance to step back in time and yearn for days gone by with drone footage of an incredible listing for sale in Orono.

Situated in Lafayette Bay, on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, this home rests on 1.40 acres and 180 feet of gorgeous shoreline. Beautiful landscaped grounds and mature trees offer privacy and level lake shore views. If swimming in a lake isn't your "thing", don't fret as there's a pool on the property too. Be sure to note that the pool isn't like most, which have a barrier of concrete. Instead, this pool has a small concrete rim, about 2.5 feet, and is
