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.

The Spring Selling Season: Twin Cities Pending Home Sales

Signs of an early and active Spring real estate market.

Pending Sales in the Twin Cities metro real estate market are rising quickly, as they did this time last year. The bulk of the early uptick in Pending Sales have been in ranges that are showing improvement over past years, namely those homes in values over $500,000. Over the entire region, we are seeing the pace of Pended Sales in the $250-499K range (red) outpace those homes priced under $250,000 (blue).  This is a bit of a watershed moment. This shift is driven by the downward trend in the levels of inventory in this entry segment of the market. Note on the Homes for Sale chart that in

We’ve asked each Berg Larsen Group agent how they use the local park systems and what they enjoy most about them. Below, business leader and professional Realtor Barry Berg shares how he uses the park system.

How were you first introduced to the Minneapolis Parks? 
Barry: "When I first moved to Minneapolis fresh out of grad school in ’75, I lived in a carriage house in Kenwood, where I was drawn as a runner to the joy and beauty of Lake of the Isles and adjoining Lake Calhoun."

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. In Spring, when the chill of winter slowly departs and we venture out from our hibernation to take our activities outside as often as possible to our parks, playgrounds, lakes and trails.

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.

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
