The Legend of Roost Real Estate

Headquartered in the land of lofts, fine food, and reinvigorated warehouses, Roost sits in the North Loop of Minneapolis. BJ LaVelle, founder, of Roost Real Estate, wanted to craft a firm made up of the best in the biz. By collecting some of the most accomplished professionals in the Twin Cities, he was able to create a full-service boutique real estate powerhouse.

Roost quickly grew into one of the leading real estate agencies simply by offering everything you need whether you’re a buyer, seller, landlord, renter, investor or developer seeking real estate in Minneapolis. They specialize in marketing premier residential properties and are outfitted with the most talented crew with expertise across all aspects of real estate transactions.

While Roost was born from a foundation of high standards and full-service offerings,they also stand loyally with their local neighborhoods. By partnering with Habitat for Humanity, Roost is committed to help everyone have a Roost to call Home.

Buyers' Representation

As your Buyer's Representative, our main job is to educate you on the current market conditions, so when we find the perfect house for you, you will feel comfortable enough to move forward. We can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you through local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, educate you on which buildings are good ones and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home.

Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase price. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer.
