stillwater mn: Tips for Buying a GREAT Multigenerational Home! - 06/23/15 11:56 AM

When I started in the real estate business over 15 years ago, my very first clients was young couple with 2 school aged daughters looking for a home that could accommodate the girls’ grandma living with them.  They wanted an “in-law” suite which was very hard to find at the time because few single family homes were designed for multigenerational living.

stillwater mn: Wordless Wednesday (Almost) Divine or De-Vine? - 10/03/12 07:34 AM
I have always loved the look of ivy growing over a trellis and marveled at the beauty of home covered in vines. But when is a creeping ivy just too much of a good thing?  This photo of a store front in Stillwater, Minnesota shows this ivy almost completely covers the brick.
