"Whiz Bang!"

Small town tradition survives in Robbinsdale's typical main street businesses and family-friendly atmosphere. Affordable, quality, single family homes are the predominant land use. Abutting the northwest corner of Minneapolis, the City provides a quiet haven from the bustle of city life. A regional medical center, convenient shopping, lake vistas, a variety of recreation activities, all only 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Or stay in town and Celebrate Whiz Bang Days the second weekend in July.



Robbinsdale, Minnesota is known for being a small, family-friendly community that happens to be conveniently located near a big city. As one of the smaller suburbs in the Twin Cities area, residents of Robbinsdale enjoy restoring a small-town feel to their town. If you live in the city and seeking a change of pace, or if you are simply looking for a great home at an affordable rate, I highly suggest you consider Robbinsdale real estate.

Probably the most trademark of Robbinsdale’s public recreational offerings, their annual Whiz Bang Days brings residents together each summer. Named after the popular World War I publication, this summer event recently celebrated its 60th anniversary. Complete with a parade, block party, countless food tents, and a terrific 10K race, the Whiz Bang days is a great chance for members of the community to interact.

Robbinsdale has a firm blue-collar backbone to it. Many of its residents travel to Minneapolis or Saint Paul for work, but prefer the small-town feel that Robbinsdale has to offer. The median household income is $48,000, and the median income for a family is around $57,000. Because this area isn’t extraordinarily affluent, many beautiful homes are available at some of the most affordable prices in the entire area. Many people who are in the market for their first home should particularly consider this area. Many single-family homes with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms are currently listed; on the other hand, if you are in the market for something a little larger, Robbinsdale also has a series of spacious multi-story homes that are also available at extremely reasonable prices. Because the current real estate market favors buyers so strongly, it is a smart time to think about purchasing a home. If you have been considering making that move, or simply want to set up a meeting to discuss your options, I strongly encourage you to give me a call.

Buying a home, whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned real-estate investor, is an extremely important decision. It’s important to have all of your options easily accessible so you can make sure you are buying the home that is right for you. For your convenience, we are a fully cooperating member of the Twin Cities real estate community. The multiple listing service, or MLS, allows all member agents to view what is available in the market so you don’t feel compelled to go with an agent you are not comfortable with. So regardless of the company sign in the yard, please feel free to give me a call to arrange an appointment to view a home that you are interested in. Our website contains many helpful tools to get you started on your journey today, including mortgage rate calculators, mortgage rate quotes, and online mortgage applications. If you would like to browse for yourself, check out our Search Online Now! application. This will grant you access to all of the homes currently available through our multiple listing service.
