“As a resident of Blaine, I have seen the real estate market blossom due to the area’s many cultural and recreational offerings,” said Lindsay Bacigalupo, co-owner of Engel & Völkers Minneapolis Blaine. “Our team’s local insight and experience will continue to partner well with Engel & Völkers’ exceptional tools and global network.”

With its eclectic offerings ranging from art galleries and theatres to scenic parks surrounding the Mississippi River, Northeast Minneapolis is emerging as a key residential destination for national, as well as international, buyers.
“Northeast Minneapolis uniquely appeals to a variety of buyers with vibrant microbreweries and distilleries, notable shopping, large corporations and a boom of conversion development,” said Geoff Bray, co-owner of Engel & Völkers Minneapolis Northeast. “Both of our new shops will complement our current Minneapolis Downtown shop to serve the diverse needs of Minneapolis’ growing international clientele.”
