Feel The VIBE

Dear Clients,

In these unprecedented times, we’re thinking of you and your family and hoping you’re able to stay home and stay safe. If you’re an ‘essential needs’ worker, we’re especially grateful for your service and hope you’re equipped with everything you need to keep yourself as safe as possible. 

As you’re probably aware, real estate was deemed a “critical sector” in Governor Walz’ March 25 “Stay at Home” order. And, as real estate professionals, we know first-hand how vital housing is to our community and feel a sacred duty to be champions for those with critical housing needs. However, we believe the spirit of the governor’s order was to prevent additional hardship on already hard-hit Minnesotans to not prevent them from being able to…

While our team has been practicing social distancing, working from home, and adjusting to the new normal – we’ve been humbled to see the community come together during these times. We are grateful for everyone who, despite these turbulent waters, are riding the waves to help lift others up. It’s been touching to witness the human generosity, empathy, and outreach in our neighborhood and beyond. We applaud the businesses across Minnesota who are changing the way they operate to help in the fight against COVID-19 and wanted to share some of these acts of generosity and spread the word about ways that you can help.

During my five-plus years in real estate, I have had the good fortune of not having to work through a significant economic downturn. One thing I get all of the time is, "boy, it must be a great time to be working in real estate". While I do tend to agree with that statement, it's mainly because I simply love what I do. The reality, when it comes to the market, is that I would welcome a more balanced market with open arms. Yes, houses are selling for more money than they have in the past, and it's a wonderful phone call to make when I get to tell my seller when they have a line of people waiting to pay over asking price for their home. But the reality for all but one of those buyers in line? Another…

At VIBE, we believe in community, human interaction, and good design. We had these three concepts in mind when working on the VIBE space to make it a comfortable and inviting hangout. We favor connections over transactions and believe that a real estate office shouldn't just be a place for business conduction.

Our agents want our clients to feel inspired, elevated, and as if they are having a positive experience outside of the industry norm. From comfortable furniture to complimentary refreshments and local craft beer on tap - hospitality is evident here, so pull up a seat.

At VIBE, we're admirers of good design and a powerful space with bold taste, so we're on the look out for what's to come in the interior world. We're reaching a time where anything goes, and we're calling it 'freedom of design.' Signature looks of 2019 and the early aughts like accent walls and all-white kitchens won't disappear entirely, they will certainly evolve in time. While we're constantly checking out staged homes, scrolling instagram, and staying inspired - here's what we're finding is happening IRL...

We're officially riding out the first quarter of 2020, and with a new year under our belts, we're wondering what that could mean for the real estate market. With this year being a year for a strong job market (unemployment is at a 50-year low) and mortgage interest rates also hitting an all-time low (well below historical norms), we’re thinking this could bring us some sustainability. According to The Washington Post, experts are predicting that the market will move sideways rather than up or down - resulting in a moderate growth rate. While a strong job market and low interest rates can result in sustainable real estate, there is a scarcity in housing not only in Minnesota, but also across the nation as a whole, giving us limited inventory for 2020.…

True, Summit Hill is full of history and grand mansions - but don’t let that fool you. This historic neighborhood offers a myriad of housing options for many different lifestyles. Condos start in the mid-$100’s, single family homes and row houses from the $300’s - all the way to large Victorians and small “castles” in the $1M+ range. Life on the hill is open to all.

Summit Hill is full of history and grand mansions. The street starts just west of downtown Saint Paul and continues four and a half miles west to the Mississippi River where Saint Paul meets Minneapolis. Summit Hill offers an urban feel, and most residents are young professionals who own their homes. Nearby, Grand Avenue is lined with upscale boutiques selling everything from home decor,…
