Downtown Lakeville Is Celebrating BLOCK BASH!

The Property Geeks are proud to be involved with the 6th Annual Block Bash Festival in downtown Lakeville this Saturday night, June 2nd.

We’ve joined together with Schmitty & Sons/Gray Line Minnesota to provide safe rides home on one of their awesome trolleys! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for a finalized route so you can plan ahead!








We couldn’t be more excited about participating in Block Bash! The planning committee has been working for months on the event that will take over Market Plaza (the area between Ace Hardware and Main Street Coffee in downtown Lakeville.)

Northfield solo act Dave Hudson and Minneapolis band Soul Tree will provide the entertainment for the 21+ event. Tickets are $10 and include a free beer from either Lakeville Brewing Company or Angry Inch Brewing. Other downtown businesses Alibi Drinkery, Toppers Pizza and Main Street Wine Bar will have food and beverages available as well.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Lakeville Public Safety Foundation. LPSF provides funding and equipment to local fire and police departments. For more information about the non-profit group, click here.

Tickets are available to purchase ahead of time through Angry Inch Brewing, Lakeville Brewing Company, Hypointe Childcare and Lakeville Fire Stations. A limited number of T-shirts are also for sale and can be purchased at Lakeville Brewing Company and Angry Inch Brewing.










Make sure you stop by our table for some fun and games, popcorn, and information on free rides home! We hope to see you there.

Grand Opening Recap

What a week it’s been for the geeks! Last Thursday we celebrated our official grand opening with a ribbon cutting and open house. It was a fantastic evening and the love and support we received overwhelmed us! We wanted to share some photos from the event and sincerely thank everyone who attended or sent their well wishes. It’s because of you… our clients, colleagues, vendors, mentors, and supporters that we’re able to do what we do. A huge thank you to the city officials, other local business owners, Lakeville Chamber members, fellow real estate professionals, and teammates from the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Lovejoy Real Estate offices who came out in support. We appreciate each and every one of you!

Big News of the week… Grand Opening!

Property Geeks Invitation

Two more days until our official ribbon cutting and grand opening. We’re working on the last minute details and putting the finishing touches on everything. We hope you can make it – Thursday, February 15th from 4pm to 7pm. If not, be sure to check out Thursday’s episode of #GrillTheGeeks on our Facebook page where we’ll do a little tour of the space for those of you who can’t attend.

We’re looking forward to seeing you!

We’re Having a Party!

Yes, we’re having a party… and you’re all invited!

We’re getting excited for our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting next week! We’ve actually been in our new office for months but between renovations and road construction, we haven’t had a chance to property welcome you all to check out our new space. We’ll be celebrating geek style which means plenty of food and lots of fun!

Everything’s happening on Thursday, February 15th. The official ribbon cutting will take place at 4pm then we’ll host an open house until 7pm. We hope you’ll be able to stop by.

The Property Geeks Introduce…


We’ve been keeping a little secret over here at Geek Central and it’s time we shared it with all of you!

There’s a new neighbor moving in next door to our office in downtown Lakeville.

The Bonus Room is approximately one-thousand square feet of versatile rental space. It’s the extra space you need if you’re hosting a meeting or event. It will be able to accommodate everything from wedding showers to weekend boutiques… book club meetings to business off-site retreats… custom classes to community get-togethers.

The space is still under construction but will be opening its doors in early to mid February. For those of you familiar with downtown Lakeville, it’s in the space vacated by Watch Me Draw. The contractors are still working hard: moving walls, painting, outfitting a full kitchen, and installing brand new carpeting. We’re enjoying watching the changes take place and can’t wait for everyone to see it.










When finished, the space will be decked out in a gorgeous, monochromatic neutral color scheme… the perfect backdrop for any event. Stay tuned to their website and Facebook page to get the latest news. We’ll be sure to let you know when the space is finished so you can pop in and see it for yourself.

By the way, rumor has it the grand opening will coincide with our ribbon cutting on February 15th. Mark your calendar now so you can be one of the first to set your eyes on the new space. The booking calendar should be up soon, ready to accommodate your events!

A New Look for Downtown Lakeville

Downtown Lakeville is getting a face lift!

Construction has been in full swing for the past several weeks. Yes, we’ve had to navigate metal barricades and dodge a construction vehicle or two, but the end result is going to be absolutely worth it. The city has a whole webpage dedicated to the project where you can see the concept drawings and keep up to date on the progress. Click here for access.

Our new office space on Holyoke Avenue provides a great vantage point to watch all of the changes taking place. We’ve been privy to some of the construction updates and wanted to pass along the news.

West Side of Holyoke

The work on the west side of the street is almost complete. Crews will be wrapping up projects throughout the next week. Soon we’ll be able to park on the west side of the street again! The orange fencing will remain for a little longer until the gorgeous new planters are installed in late October or early November.

East Side of Holyoke

As for the east side where our office is located, they’ve started ripping up the sidewalk and removing the light posts. That work should be done next week. Then they’ll begin repairing the storm sewers, installing fresh soil and tree grates for new trees, and eventually pouring the sidewalks.

We hope you get a chance to head downtown and check the progress for yourself. Businesses are still open while the work continues. Please consider making the trek and supporting our local friends and neighbors. We’re excited for the changes to be complete and are looking forward to being a part of this next era in downtown Lakeville!


The Property Geeks

Our Real Estate Agents Are A Different Breed of Geek

Kelly Coffer- Real Estate GeekWord is on the street, the cat’s out of the bag and we’re shouting it from the rooftops: The Property Geeks are moving to Downtown Lakeville! We’re so excited to join the other awesome businesses that call Holyoke Avenue home. We also want to tell you a little bit about our team and what makes us a different breed of geek from the other real estate agents you might have worked with in the past.

We’re not your typical real estate team.

Our commitment to our clients goes way beyond just the sale. We’re passionate about finding solutions to their needs, whether it’s buying or selling a new home, an investment property or a family cabin that can also be used as a rental. We bring a combination of expertise, enthusiasm and compassion into every aspect of our business. We get excited about bonus rooms and fresh paint. Walking through a home with a prospective buyer thrills us to our core. You won’t find anyone else in town who gets more enthusiastic about a well-done addition or a newly renovated master bath.

Sure, we’ve won awards. And it’s lovely to be recognized by our colleagues and peers. But it means more to us to receive a heartfelt thank you from a family who’s moving into their first home or an investor who’s finally realized their dream of building a real estate portfolio.  We’ll work with our clients within their parameters to find the right combination of property and value.

We’ve got the experience.

Our team members are licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin and have worked all over the Twin Cities, throughout the greater state of Minnesota and even into western Wisconsin. We’re investors ourselves. We own multi-family rental properties, vacation rental properties and have been flipping houses before it was even a thing. We walk the walk and talk the talk. We don’t just want to sell you a house, we want to welcome you to The Property Geeks family, where we want to forge a relationship before, during and after the sale.

Words we live by:

“Be different. Be kind. Be humble.”  – Caarin Pannkuk – Chief Geek, Branch President

Whether you’re in the market for a new home or not, feel free to call us with questions, stop by to check out our new office, or tune in to our live, weekly episodes of “Grill The Geeks” on our Facebook page. We’ll be here when you’re ready to geek out with us. We promise!

Moving On Up To Downtown Lakeville!

The Property Geeks — getting their GEEK on in downtown Lakeville!

We’ve been busy, busy, busy—up to our rose-colored glasses with secret projects—and it’s time to share the news. The Property Geeks are moving on up to downtown Lakeville!

We’ve been searching for new digs for months. We’re experienced in helping our friends and clients find the perfect home, cabin or investment property. But, securing a space for our team to call home seemed like a never-ending quest.

We considered many of the south metro suburbs. There are so many attractive options in the Twin Cities. But then we thought about it. We’re licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin and have listed and sold homes all over the Twin Cities metro area and beyond… Lakeville holds a special place in our hearts. Everyone on our team lives within a few miles. Our kids attend Lakeville public schools. Many of us grew up around the area and love it so much we’ve never left.

Finally, after weeks of searching, the stars aligned and we signed a lease on a gorgeous space. Now, the flooring has been installed, the paint has dried on the walls, the furniture is being delivered, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be moving into Downtown Lakeville.

Property Geeks Downtown Lakeville










Lakeville is a thriving community and the businesses in the downtown area have big plans to make it even more of a destination location. From tasty treats to custom brews to a wide variety of professional services, the downtown area is a one-stop shop for just about anything a resident might need. With all of the year-round events, the farmer’s market, and the sensational summer plans, we’re excited to join the fantastic group of businesses that call Holyoke Avenue home.

Be on the lookout for news of The Property Geeks official Grand Opening sometime soon. And watch for us while you’re cruising through downtown.

You never know what we’ll be geeking out about next!
