Feel The VIBE

 

Our agent Dan Schneider and his husband Paul are a dynamic duo -- Dan holds the real estate license, Paul is a contractor and together, they offer their clients an immense amount of experience when it comes to renovating, rehabbing and even staging homes for the market. 

One day in passing, Dan casually showed me this 'flip' they did years ago and I nearly fell over when I saw the change. Talk about curb appeal! I love everything about this custom reno -- and asked Dan to share some insight into what went into this impressive project.

 

A little insight from Dan on this project:

The sellers were concerned about potential hassles that might occur during the selling process and wanted the process to be as easy as possible. While it

I think it is safe to say most people in real estate love home design. So when this listing popped up in my timeline, I knew I had to share it.

Frank Lloyd Wright became a cultural icon for his unique design style so it makes sense that those architects who worked under him also gained some traction for their connection to the legend. 

Built in 1994, this home boasts nearly 4300 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths and was designed by an apprentice who worked under Wright. What caught my attention was the amount of natural light in every room. Wouldn't want to clean those windows but my goodness, do they make for a picturesque view!

Star Tribune reporter Kim Palmer's article this weekend had people talking.

The headline? What do Twin Cities millennial home buyers want? Not what boomers are selling.

Millions of millennials (the generation born between 1981 and 1996) are entering prime home-buying age, creating an intense demand for starter homes in popular urban neighborhoods. At the same time, millions of baby boomers are trying to downsize from the homes where they raised their families, creating a supply of big suburban homes.

But tastes and lifestyles have shifted in the decades since many of those homes were built. Today, buyers of all ages — but especially millennials — tend to prefer smaller, more modern-style houses in walkable neighborhoods near urban

Agents, take note! This closing gift is a major winner! 

When Dan came to me and told me his idea of throwing a housewarming party for his client as a closing gift, my first thought was -- holy cow, this guy gets it!

Dan had worked with Carrie* (not her name) for years, selling her home last year and helping her land her dream home this spring. They have the kind of relationship agents dream of so it made sense that Dan and his husband Paul would do something very personal for Carrie’s closing gift.

If you know Dan and Paul, you know it makes total sense that they would get excited about throwing a party. I mean, they are the life of the party! And they love hosting. So getting to do something special for their client -- i.e. throwing her an

Why We Started VIBE 

My brother Steve and I started VIBE Realty in 2018 after just 3 years in the real estate business. We knew we loved real estate - we loved taking care of our clients, we loved negotiating deals, we loved marketing properties and we loved the freedom. But what we didn’t love was the traditional real estate brokerage. The pyramid schemes, all the hidden fees, the nickel-and-diming - that was all not for us. We had worked with agents who were getting 50/50 splits at their “big box” brokerage, paying tons of fees and getting little to no support. We wondered ‘where is all this money going if it doesn’t end up benefiting the agent?’ So we quickly went to work to create something entirely new and different.

We've been in our home for almost a year and a half -- yikes!!!! -- and this summer, I've committed to wrapping up some of my ongoing projects. I love starting projects, the excitement of committing to a plan and coming up with ideas. I'm not so great at finishing them. 

One of those ongoing projects is my office. It has become a dumping ground for things that don't have a purpose or a place and I would really like it to become a functional space for us to use. When you are limited on square footage, you can't be wasting an entire room for junk. And the older I get, the more that clutter messes with my anxiety (it also puts some major stress on my relationship with my boyfriend as I fell in love with a clean freak).  

One of the major

Wow. May 10th was a day we'll remember for a long time. Not only did the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce welcome us in with a bang but we were able to celebrate the opening of our space with some of our closest family, friends and clients. It was perfection and an incredible reminder of how lucky we are -- to do what we love, to be surrounded by people who support us and cheer us on. Thank you.

 

Here are some of our favorite photos from that night. Please share if you see a familiar face!
