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.

We Raised $1,200 for Secondhand Hounds

In July and August, during our "Dog Days Of Summer" campaign, we donated $100 to Secondhand Hounds with every new listing. As animal lovers, our team worked diligently to raise awareness for this wonderful organization while assisting our clients in getting their house show ready and on the Twin Cities market. Needless to say, it was a great success and a wonderful opportunity to help Second Hand Hounds, where team member Krista is a volunteer.

Coming in July and August of 2017, we'll be raising money yet again for the "Dog Days Of Summer". If you'd like to sell your home in the summer of 2017, we can be sure you're ready! Contact us today for a free market evaluation by a member of our team of…

 The Market is Heating Up...Good Time to Meet Our Team

 Meet Professional Realtor and Mother of Three, Rebecca Peterson

Hello. My name is Remington Rufus Peterson. The kids just call me “Sissy” because they think I’m their sister – seriously. One thing I want you to know about me is I’m a stickler for being on time. Especially when it comes to mealtime. Breakfast is at eight. Dinner is at five. You can set your watch to it. It’s like I have a built in clock. 

Mom, a.k.a. Rebecca, also has a built in clock. In all my 10 years, I’ve never seen anyone so prepared. She even has her degree in Real Estate law. And believe me, I’ve heard many a conversation at the dinner table to know that her qualifications as a professional…

There's nothing finer than getting outside in the fresh air and warm summer sun with your four legged friend. Here's a list of some of our favorite spots to take your dog on a walk or to let them run free at an off-leash dog park.

 Meet Business Partner and Professional Realtor, Chad  Larsen

Uncle Chad called up to ask nieces Sarah and Katherine if he can take me, Scout, to the park for some “best friend” time. Naturally I oblige. Chad is a good uncle. He loves animals. Dogs especially. He used to be owned by a pair of cats, Beany and Wheezy. They were great and all, but they’re no “Scout.”

I had this great idea to make a $100 contribution to Secondhand Hounds every time Berg Larsen Group lists a home during the Dog Days of Summer (July and August). He liked it so well he and Barry made it their team pledge. Good Uncle Chad, good boy!

On one particular visit to the park, Uncle Chad bumped into…

 Meet Founder and Professional Realtor, Barry Berg

Hi, I’m Daisy, Barry’s 7-year-old Jack Russell terrier. Who knew back when I lived at the Humane Society seven years ago, that we’d be so perfect together. What I mean to say is, Barry has impeccable taste. As do I. He loves art. As do I. He loves classical music. As do I. Most of all, Barry loves people. As. Do. I. Some would say we were made for each other. But I prefer to think Barry was made for me.

Barry was also made for real estate. He’s been a professional Realtor for 35 years. Which is to say, few people in this city, state and country have his level of experience. He’s literally seen everything when it comes to…

Meet Commercial Real Estate Lawyer and Professional Realtor, Paul Kaminski

My name is Tucker. And I’m a 4-year-old Tibetan terrier. Paul is my dad. And boy, does he spoil me. I mean, look at this cuteness. How could he not? I know he misses my big brother, Preston, a lot so I make sure he’s never lonely and always has someone to play fetch with.

I’m proud of my dad, Paul. You see, when he’s not at home doting on me, he’s at work, practicing commercial real estate law, and working as a Realtor with Berg Larsen Group. People love working with him because, well, he’s patient and kind and brilliant. He knows the ins and outs of real estate like nobody’s business. Which is why…

Meet Professional Realtor and Mother of Two, Kate Wall

Helloooo. My name is Jack. And I’m a 10-year-old Brittany. Although I look like a dog, I am actually a human disguised as a dog. I love our neighborhood: Kenwood. Every morning, we walk 2.86-miles around Lake of the Isles. We rarely miss a sunrise. So you see, I’m not just a dog I’m an early bird dog. 

Forgive me for boasting, but you have to know that Kate has a way about her that makes everyone feel at home. She also loves architecture. Which is probably why we live here. These neighborhoods are home to some of the most exquisite examples of architecture in the country. Which makes being a Realtor such a pleasure.…
