After two decades in Deephaven’s picturesque, resort-like neighborhood of Cottagewood, Deb and Dan decided it was time to embark on the next chapter of homeownership. They were ready to return to the city and take advantage of the ease of condo living.

Their quest for an urban abode led them on a Zillow search, but the places they found were bland at best—however, a particular address on Humboldt Ave. S., a captivating 110-year-old building with seven units, repeatedly caught their eye, even though it didn’t have all their initial wish-list items.

Cue Chad Larsen from the Berg Larsen Group. What unfolded next was a seamless transition guided by expertise, unparalleled service, and a touch of serendipity. They sought Chad’s counsel because they felt there must be more options than just the one on Humboldt.

Chad encouraged them to see the property, and got them in the next day, which proved wise. “Instantly, we realized there were things far more important to us," says Deb, enchanted by the grandeur of the woodwork and unique architectural details, not to mention proximity to the lake and a neighborhood sense of community.

Intimately acquainted with the East Isles neighborhood, Chad assured them, "If this is the look and feel you're going for, you won't see a better one. This is your place."

Their focus quickly shifted to how they could make this move happen. Trust in Chad proved pivotal as they navigated the complexities of offer negotiations.

Deb and Dan relied on Chad's advice to overcome hurdles and options. Dan says, “It was all new territory to us. From pricing and deadlines to an unexpected offer we had to counter and a surprise sewer assessment, Chad was there for us every step of the way.” 

Deb adds, “I got the best text ever from Chad on a Saturday night while he was out at a black-tie event and we were at a dinner party: ‘Congratulations! You now own a condo.’”

The couple moved in August 2023, and Dan didn’t hesitate to get involved with their new community – he is now proudly serving as the president of the homeowners' association.

Beyond the Berg Larsen Group's excellent service and the gem of a property they discovered, Dan and Deb joyfully agree, "It was just remarkable the way all the pieces came together so quickly!" In the heart of the East Isles neighborhood, their urban oasis awaits—a testament to the blend of dreams, expertise, and BLG excellence. Reflecting on their experience, Dan notes, "We were super lucky to get into this building," and as they settled into their walkable community near the lake, surrounded by local gems, Deb remarks, "We couldn’t be happier."
