wayzata lakes realty: How Working With Artists & Performers Became a Niche Market for Us - 01/11/16 02:16 AM
How Working With Artists & Performers Became a Niche Market for Us
 
Over the past several years, we've discovered that our real estate market activity has increasingly become centered on working with clients who happen to be employed in the performing arts or the visual arts. A surprising number of our clients fit into this category.  For example, recent real estate clients we've assisted have included a member of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra who wished to sell his home and a symphony bass player who needed help finding a mortgage.  Recent clients have also included the artistic director of a theater company, an art gallery owner, a sculptor, a portrait painter and a … (4 comments)

Testimonial From a Bloomington, Minnesota Home Seller
 
We're proud to display all our testimonials, but this one is significant because it addresses an important point.
 
Client Bob Ronning, wrote,
 
"Not only did Eric Kodner get us the price we wanted for our home in Bloomington, but he also took the time and effort to help us get our house ready for sale. It's that kind of attention to detail that would make me recommend Eric and Wayzata Lakes Realty to anyone with a home to sell."

wayzata lakes realty: A Competitor Asks, Where Do You Get Your Listings? - 03/09/14 01:29 PM
 
A Competitor Asks, "Where Do You Get Your Listings?"
 
The question came up during a friendly conversation with a Twin Cities area competitor that wasn't about shop talk, at least not when it began.  It was flattering, in an odd way, and it was tinged with a smidgen of frustration.  That competitor went on, saying, "okay, you don't buy ads on Z----- or T----- and you don't get leads or clients from your broker" (mainly because I am my own broker) so how do you do it?  I mean, where does your business come from?"
She's right about the … (0 comments)

SOLD by Wayzata Lakes Realty - 6400 York Av. S, #411, Edina, MN 55435
 
This is our fourth sale at "The Yorker" Condominiums in Edina during the past fifteen months (and our second sale at that address in the past six weeks).

Customers and past clients ask me what makes "The Yorker" in Edina such a desirable place to buy.
