Become A Better Buyer With Coldwell Banker Burnet

It was a warm winter morning for Valentine’s Day. Dick Anderson was first to arrive with the list of registrants from his Craft Talk last week.

President Kelsey Wolter called the meeting to order with a ring of the bell, a moment of silence, and a Hershey’s kiss for everyone in attendance.

Today’s Honorary Member in attendance was Martin Peyer.

The 2018 blaze orange directories have arrived! Please take two per member.

Randy Korn is asking for our thoughts and prayers as his office manager’s son passed away last week. Additional thoughts and prayers are appreciated for Bill McReavy, Jr. who also had a friend pass last week.


This Week’s Craft Talk

Today’s Craft Talk, given by Craig Blixrud of Coldwell Banker Burnet, focused on market statistics and trends in the industry. In short, the industry has recovered from the “Bubble Collapse” and is quite healthy. Affordable homes for first time buyers are scarce and “move up” home inventory levels are quite low as well.

The Blixrud Group of Coldwell Banker Burner (Craig, Susan, and Brandon) provides exceptional residential real estate services to clients that demand the best. Their team has over 20 years of experience with 760 homes sold as listing and/or sales agents. For 11 consecutive years they’ve been named as “Super Real Estate Agent” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine. They make their clients, whether first time homebuyers, or savvy investors, feel at home.

Contact them today with a referral, any questions, or to share thoughts on your residential real estate needs.
