A friend reached out the other day wondering if I could recommend a great place to take her husband for drinks and apps before his birthday dinner. She wanted somewhere cozy and warm, it should have dim lighting and great cocktails. 

I knew exactly where to send her. Of the two places that came to mind, the downtown Minneapolis location would be better for them knowing their dinner reservations were downtown but depending on which direction you want to go, I’ve got a couple of ideas for you. 

First, in downtown Minneapolis, in the basement of the Ivy Hotel, you’ll find Constantine. When you walk in and see the conference hall style carpeting leading your way, don’t turn around. Keep going, I promise, it’ll be worth it. You’ll find a…

Here at VIBE, we’re all about relationships - from family (did you know our co-founders, Rob and Steve, are brothers?!), to friendships, and everything in between. We know relationships thrive when they are given attention and time and the best way to do both is to invite some people over for a fun event! In fact, we love events so much that we created our Lounge space specifically for hosting. But, just because you don’t have a dedicated event space in your home doesn’t mean you can’t have your favorite people over. We put together a few of our best hosting tips to help you, and your space, shine when you throw your next get together.

  1. Set an intention for your gathering. Why are you getting together? Is it to celebrate someone or a…

April 2023

Inventory continued to be pretty tight across the metro in April, keeping prices at record highs. If you’re thinking about selling or want to know what your home may be worth on today’s market, reach out and we can help!

March 2023

Spring is finally here and the market is heating up! More new listings hit the market in March but inventory remains LOW and pricing is holding strong. 

February 2023

February results are in! More listings hit the market and the average market time is edging closer to “normal," yet homes are still selling relatively fast and for strong prices. We’ve been taking a lot more calls from potential buyers and sellers who want to make a move this year, so we’re sensing another busy - but more…

Out with the Old  |  By Lianna Cotant

After opening gifts, eating our fill of delicious food, indulging in a few glasses of our favorite beverage and overloading on family time, many of us are now happy to be back in our own homes, drinking coffee and admiring the…mess?

While it’s true that the end of the year is joyful and filled with warm and fuzzy feelings, it’s also often also filled with stuff. Our homes should be havens, places where we can relax, enjoy friends and family and also places that reflect what’s important to us. If the past year has left your space feeling cluttered, read through these five tips to jumpstart the new year with fewer items so you have more time for what’s really important to you.

  1. Get rid of extras. It…

It's Been a Wild Ride  |  By VIBE Co-founder Rob Glynn

Five years ago this month, a lifelong dream came true: my brother Steve and I finally started a business together. It's something we had talked about for years and years and, somehow, something I always felt like we were destined for. To partner up, to combine our skills and build something good for the world. Of course, we've had plenty of ideas over the years - from digital lawn care companies to themed liquor stores (good for the world, right?) - but it all came together once we realized our shared love of real estate and helping people.    The big day was preceded by months of late night sessions spent brainstorming and imagining what could be. We dreamed of building a great company,…

New Year, New VIBE  |  By Lianna Cotant

A space to gather.

A place to build relationships.

A lounge designed with events in mind.

Plus, beer on tap, shuffleboard, snacks and lots of cozy nooks to catch up on work. 

When I joined the VIBE team last fall, I heard rumors about the new office space, how “cool” it would be: all the amenities, the thoughtfulness put into the details, not to mention the location in the Blair Arcade. I wasn’t sure if the new space would truly live up to the hype.

I should not have doubted.

Stepping into the warm offices, filled with natural light, I love grabbing a spot in a booth where I can work and chat as agents come and go. The space is the physical embodiment of the tenants that guide VIBE:…

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Seriously, it's nice and snowy outside. The pretty kind, too — not the muddy, gross kind...

Welcome back to another Twin Cities Market Recap, the largest and most in-depth breakdown of any real estate market in the world. Okay, slight exaggeration, but we do a pretty good job of bringing the latest market information to a digestible level. Speaking of market info, last month we saw some pretty staggering numbers hit the board, and for a moment, everything seemed to be going a little crazy. We'll touch on our thoughts on why in our wrap-up, but safe to say that November's numbers have brought things back into orbit.

While the average and median sale prices have been in decline for five consecutive…

Christmas sweaters and holiday cheer were in abundance at VIBE this weekend as families gathered, ate, talked and were merry - with a quick break for family photos in our new lounge. Sticky fingers and powdered sugar lips couldn’t keep big grins away as our new space hosted the first of many events.

Kids enjoyed holiday themed crafts, creating bejeweled and glitter-glued ornaments and proudly showing them off. Parents-to-be joined in the fun, capturing one more picture before baby arrives and smiles were cajoled out of even the most scroogelike partygoers.

Holiday Card Ready

At VIBE, we know getting together for a family photo shoot around the holidays can feel like a monumental task, so that’s why we offered free professional…
