Every now and then we have to shake our heads at how much the electronic transformation has changed daily living in St. Cloud. Electronics have invaded practically everything—from home wifi to ultra hi-def TV to cell phones that double as search engines.
As you read this, you’re only a couple of clicks away from being able to summon up all the current St. Cloud homes for sale that fit your chosen criteria. Want to check out 3-bedroom single family residences currently listed for $400,000 or less? Click click: here they are—complete with pictures (and perhaps a video tour). It’s a revolution that’s still ongoing, too—one bound to produce surprises we haven’t even imagined.
Yet, despite the sweeping changes in St. Cloud real estate marketing, there is one old standby whose power and utility hasn’t changed one whit. It is master of the real (nonvirtual) realm.
The two words in point are “For Sale”—specifically when they appear on one of my eye-catching front yard signs. Their power is undeniable; proven time and time again. As soon as a ‘for sale’ sign appears in a front yard, the secret is out! Everybody in the neighborhood quickly notes the nearby property that’s suddenly available. If family or friends have been thinking of moving closer, it’s a possible solution. If a neighbor has been looking for more room (or thinking of downsizing), likewise. Prospects who have been eyeing the area will write down my phone number and give me a call. Even casual passersby who hadn’t been entertaining the idea of buying a home may suddenly find themselves mulling the possibility: “I hadn’t been thinking of a change, but I saw your sign over on _______, and we were wondering how much they’re asking…”
The truth is, the good old-fashioned ‘For Sale’ sign still packs a wallop—possibly because it sticks out so startlingly on an otherwise unchanging residential street. It’s an unexpected direct communication. And whether or not prospective buyers have even been thinking of themselves in that category, everyone gets the message: what if that place could be mine?
If you will be listing your own home anytime soon, I hope you’ll call!

My objective is simple; to do for you what I would wish someone in the same position to do for me which means always acting in your best interests in order to achieve the goals that you have set for yourself. I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years and began when I started in the construction of homes. I have built homes from the ground up (pouring footings to setting the last finishing nail) which is a huge benefit for you as I can share that knowledge about home construction with you. I have successfully negotiated hundreds of contracts and fully understand the process as well as every line of a contract that you will be signing your name to. We are the only entity that can work with legally binding contracts w hile not holding a law degree and as such we have very specific fiduciary responsibilities to our clients and I take them very seriously. My goal is to make the process not only informative and educational thereby removing the fear or anxiety that some experience but also to make the process both exciting and fun and I strive for 5 stars in every transaction. The bottom line is if you're not happy, then neither will I be!
This is the time of year when St. Cloud pet owners start to hear remi
"I moved to the area from Alaska in 2006. Patrick was one of the first people I met. Not only did he help me find my first "starter" house, but he also got me acquainted with the area. His knowledge of the housing market was second to none. He has since sold my "starter" home and found and facilitated the purchase of our dream home. He was also the purchasing agent for some friends of mine who moved here from out of state. They couldn't be happier. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patrick to anyone for their real estate needs. 5 stars all the way!Steve T.
Patrick takes the time to make sure he understands your needs and expectations. He also ensures that you are fully informed during the entire process of selling and/or buying your room. His personal devotion to knowing the current housing market, latest trends and having access to several resources- makes him a very valuable source of information, in addition to being an excellent Realtor. I have so much confidence in Patrick that I never hesitate to refer him to family and friends. He has helped my friends sell their homes for thousands over what other realtors told them was even possible. I can't say enough great things about him. When we make our next move, we will be using Patrick Torgrimson- you should too!!Nancy A.
