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. Say goodbye to cubicles and fluorescent lighting - our team has reimagined the world of real estate. 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.

Our offices weren't only designed for meetings - we

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.

Affluent 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, fashion and jewelry to musical instruments, toys and books. This area is also lined with high-end restaurants, European-style bakeries, wood-fired pizza spots and sidewalk cafes. It's hard not to love this historic hood for all that it has to offer. Click here to check out listings in Summit Hill, Saint Paul.
