July 4th, 2008

James G. Blaine once said “The United States is the only country with a known birthday.”
Come out and help us celebrate our Nations birthday at Chanhassen’s 25th 4th of July Celebration. With our Friends and Family, we will be walking in the parade and handing out flags to all those who attend. The event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Chanhassen, has been voted the best in the Twin Cities. We are excited to celebrate this momentous occasion with our clients, friends and neighbors.

The weekend will kick off on July 3rd with many activities and will continue on July 4th. Check out the website for more information on the events and activities.

The parade will begin at 2:30pm. It has been recommended that you come early to get the best curbside seating. There will be bands, clowns, floats, fire trucks, classic cars, horses, local celebrities and more. The parade route is through downtown Chanhassen on West 78th Street from Chapel Hill to Kerber Boulevard to Santa Vera Drive to Laredo Drive to Chan View.

For more information on the festivities, visit the City of Chanhassen’s Website.

The Land on 10,000 Lakes Welcomes You Home

With our business going strong and many of our clients relocating to the Twin Cities from all across the United States, we though that it might be a good idea to offer a few resources to better prepare you for you next big move.

Whether you are moving to Eden Prairie, Waconia or Chanhassen or heading to Texas, Florida or Ohio; these Websites are great resources for information on what to expect from your new Home.

Sperling’s Best Places is an extensive site featuring side-by-side comparisons of two cities of your choosing. You can get information on Cost of Living, Schools, Crime, Climate and Homes. Sperling’s claims to be responsible for “more "Best Places" studies and projects than any other single organization."

The other site we like is The report you will receive from this site provides an in-depth view of the people, places, and conditions of two cities. Some of the useful information you will receive will focus on demographics, finances, economics and real estate, all things that will impact your quality of life. It also features tons of links for services to help you move.

While these sites are great, they might not give you all the information you are looking for. The best way to get to know an area is to talk to the people who live there. If you have any questions or would like more detailed information on Lake Minnetonka or Minnesota, please feel free to contact Eric or Sharla Stafford or visit our Website.

As Relocation Specialist, we can help make your move as seamless as possible.
