Do You Canoe?

“Not a drive-by” is one of the most over-used cliches in real estate.

So how about “not a kayak-by” instead?

On a kayak is how I encountered 2550 Burnham Blvd. yesterday, on the north side of the channel between Cedar Lake and Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis.

Hey, Barry! You’re welcome for the plug.

P.S.: Minneapolis real estate trivia: what do Barry Berg and I have in common?

Not brokers (we work literally across the street from each other, at Coldwell Banker Burnet and Edina Realty, respectively).

Not alma mater (Harvard and Stanford, respectively).

Not credentials (he’s an MBA; I’m a (former) Attorney/CPA).

Give up?

We both ran — unsuccessfully — for the same seat in the state legislature (59B as I recall, representing Kenwood and Bryn Mawr).

He ran about a decade before I did, and lost to the same opponent, Dee Long.
