Pride weekend has officially come to a close here in the Twin Cities. As we take the next few days to come down from all the fun activities, scrub the glitter and facepaint off ourselves, and return back to our daily routines, we wanted to write a quick recap of the weekend and talk about our presence at the festival!

This was VIBE Realty’s first year having an official booth and presence at the Twin Cities Pride Festival and we can confidently say we will be making this a recurring event for many more years to come! We had an absolute blast, but most importantly, it gave our LGBTQ+ agents a platform and space to show up authentically in their communities and make some fantastic connections with folks around them. Buying or selling a home is no easy feat,…

Whether it’s flip-flop weather or snow boot season, Minnesota has always got something good going on. With the restrictions for Covid-19 easing, we’re seeing events starting back up again. From sun-drenched music festivals like the Summer Jam, to Minnesota classics like the State Fair - we’re ready to get out and enjoy a true Twin Cities summer. Join in to celebrate art, culture, music, food, sports, seasonal fun and more. Make sure you check Minnesota's latest COVID-19 guidelines before heading to an event.

July 4th Fun Fest

This year's modified Eagan's July 4th Funfest festivities will include a scavenger hunt, a kids bike parade, the annual Ambassadors coronation, a showcase of Eagan’s restaurants, and of course, fireworks!

Earth Day - a day to observe and be grateful for our planet. A day when millions of people across the world come together to promote a cleaner, safer environment. But what does this day truly represent? And what can it teach us about our everyday living habits?

Last year on Earth Day, we put out a blog post about how you can achieve sustainability in your home, a concept that’s become more and more popular over the years. And well of course we all want to commit to greener living on a large scale, sometimes it’s easier said than done. We touched on innovative methods like solar panel systems and rainwater collections, which prove to be highly effective ways to promote sustainability—however, those undertakings may not always be financially feasible or…

After a long hibernation (due to a Minnesota winter paired with COVID-19), we’re all feeling a little restless and stir crazy, understandably so. It’s been a whirlwind of a year and who isn’t ready for a fresh take? The start of spring has always been celebrated as a time for new beginnings — and we can’t think of a better approach for the coming of the new season here in the Twin Cities. At that, we’re commemorating some of the incredible new businesses sprouting up against all odds in both Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Make sure to get out there, welcome them to our communities, and spread some “Minnesota-Nice” with our support. We’ve highlighted a few below.

Say it with us...Goodbye 2020! Ringing in the New Year can be exciting—it's a time for new beginnings, which is something that, after a difficult 2020, most of us are looking forward to. New Year's Eve 2021 will look a lot different than last year's celebration. Instead of heading out for a night on the town, many of us will be settling in for an evening on the couch. And in lieu of ringing in 2021 with dozens of friends, our guest lists will be limited to the people who live in our households. One way we’re considering making the evening eventful is one of our favorite 2020 past-times: takeout. 

With our cherished local restaurants having to shut their doors the past month, no doubt they’ll be looking forward to some extra love and support as we head…

It’s the season of doing good and giving back. This is our third annual donation drive for Alexandra House as we continue to work together to help them on their mission to end domestic and sexual violence. Here’s to making a change in the lives of those in our community. 

This year due to Covid-19, they are requesting donors to contribute gift cards (with receipts attached) in $25 denominations from Target, Walmart, VISA, Mastercard, or Amazon.com, in addition to grocery gift cards from Cub or Aldi Grocery. If you do prefer to purchase actual toys and gifts for distribution, see the wish list by clicking here.

Drop off your donation at the VIBE office in St. Paul between December 1st - December 7th during our business hours: 9:30am - 5pm…

There’s no doubt that 2020 has brought our local businesses many challenges this year, and it’s safe to say we’ve all felt the impact one way or another. With so many businesses closing their doors in the Twin Cities and beyond, their role in our community has never been more transparent.

Just how much of a presence and impact do small businesses have? The SBA (Small Business Administration) reports over 28 million small businesses operating in the U.S. alone. And since 1995, those small businesses have generated 66% of all new jobs in the United States. Small businesses are a big deal. Which brings us to Small Business Saturday, a nationally recognized holiday coming up on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

So what better time to encourage the ‘shop…

It’s September already, which marks almost six months of living in the midst of a pandemic. With all the difficult changes this year has brought, it’s never been more clear that our community is at the forefront of what we do. Our neighbors, clients, and friends are the foundation of VIBE Realty. While our world in real estate continues to move forward, we remain empathetic toward our friends in industries that continue to struggle. 

It’s been humbling to witness how the Twin Cities have come together in a collective effort to support and elevate one another during these times. But the outreach can’t stop yet. Local businesses, artists, gyms, musicians, and restaurants continue to feel the negative economic and financial effects of COVID-19. Here are…

Not all is lost here, folks. While some might say 2020 is a wash when it comes to enjoying our much-loved Minnesota summer activities, we knew the State Fair wasn't going to leave us hanging. When they announced the cancelation in mid-May due to COVID-19 (which was not an easy decision for the board to make), we were hoping they'd come up with a little something to accommodate our fair fix...cue The Minnesota State Fair Drive-Thru happening Aug. 20-23, 27-30 and Sept. 3-7.

Our great Minnesota get-together has found a new way for us to enjoy what it is we all look forward to each year...the food. The fairgrounds will be hosting 16 different vendors who will be selling you their food wares along a 1.5 mile route and you get to drive-thru and grab the…
