We certainly recognize that these are unique times. Your health and safety are our paramount concerns, followed closely by getting your home sold and closed. The Berg Larsen Group remains proactive in monitoring the state and local guidelines for best practices. 

We know there are buyers who are out looking and need to find a place to live. We are not recommending taking homes off the market, but rather to stay the course and make the property available to those who want to see it.

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.

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. Needless to say, Gary’s diagnosis and progressive form of dementia was a shock to the family and has altered their lives radically. Nanci,

It's the Dog Days of Summer! To celebrate our fuzzy friends, this June and July we will donate $100 to the Animal Humane Society with every new listing we put on the Twin Cities market. Licensed Realtor, real estate attorney and team member, Paul Kaminski, sits on the board and volunteers at the Animal Humane Society to support and help animals of all breeds and ages. We're proud of the hard work Paul accomplishes in the office, but it's his contributions during his free time that show his passion and heart.

Twin Cities Real Estate Market Insight

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

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
