In his free time he likes to golf to with his dad, workout at the local gym, and watch sports. He is active in the Make a Wish Minnesota Organization.

Minnesota Home Guys is pleased to announce our charity for the month of August in our spotlight series, where we take 5% of closing costs in every deal we make each month and donate it to a charity that hits close to home with us.

For the month of August  we are spotlighting the Make a Wish Minnesota organization located in right here in the Twin Cities. Make a Wish Minnesota is an organization that grants children with critical illnesses wishes. Wishes can vary from going deep sea fishing, to meeting a famous athlete or celebrity, or just having a shopping spree at the Mall of America.

The Make a Wish founding principle of their vision is to grant a wish for every eligible child.  Wishes are more than a nice thing, they impact everyone involved, from the volunteers, administrators, to of course the wish kids, the impact varies and granting a wish for any child may help them get the courage to comply with their medical treatments and help parents feel a little more optimistic. The most important part is it just lets the kids be a kid, even if it is just for a day or week.

This charity hits close to home with our company with one of our own, Matt, who is a volunteer within the organization. Matt started volunteering for Make a Wish in June where he is a shopping spree assistant, helping visiting families navigate throughout the Mall of America when they come to town for their wishes of having a shopping spree there. Matt, as well as our director of finance, Heather, participated in the “Walk for Wishes” 5K event on August 4th at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis.

Want to get involved with Make a Wish and/or want to donate? Please head over to mn.wish.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities, or to donate. Stay tuned for our announcement on our website for our next charity on September 1st.

Sharing is caring!

I highly recommend the Home Guys if you are looking to sell your home. The process was very streamlined, transparent, and straight forward. I worked directly with James whom I found to be a very honest, caring, and ethical businessman.James truly cared about our needs and listened to our concerns. Because of James our dream of a new home became a reality. A huge selling point for us was the fact that this transaction could occur far faster than a normal one, without realtor fees, closing costs, or the typical red tape.We had never done this kind of thing (selling to a home improvement company) but now that we have - we are really glad we did. It was the right move for our situation. If you are considering selling your home to a home improvement company (flipper) I do not think you will find a better one than the Home Guys - I give them the highest of ratings.

Easy, easy, easy! I highly recommend MN Home Guys and would absolutely use them again. It was about two weeks from first contact to close, and then closing only took 15 minutes. Great company, wonderful service.

I contacted to Minnesota Home Guys to purchase our first home and really can’t say enough about them. They are knowledgeable, approachable and very professional. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Minnesota Home Guys made it as painless and straightforward as possible. I would highly recommend them.

This company was great to work with, it was like going through a usually stressful experience with a friend in the know. They were helpful and courteous and most of all kind. They treat everyone with empathy in an industry where it's commonly lost. I'd recommend them to anyone!

I had a very time sensitive situation and I had never sold a house before. I didn’t know what I was doing AT ALL which made it incredibly stressful to navigate through the sale process especially with the added pressure of a deadline ...then I met James from Homeguys. He immediately calmed my fears, made everything seem so easy and manageable and even helped me look for a new place! I had receives several different offers from other home investor company’s but in the end, I am so glad I went with home guys. James (and his lovely, patient wife) put up with my endless, sometimes nonsense emails and questions so kindly and walked me through any and everything that i didn’t understand.. I am so grateful for their kindness and patience with me. In the end, Home guys made this whole experience so much easier than I thought it would be and it went just as quick if not quicker than I thought it would. I would recommend homeguys to any and everyone that will listen!

I am completely satisfied with the service from Mn Home Guys. Brad was so good to work with. He answered all my texts and emails very promptly. Closing was very easy. There was no double talk, high pressure, and I was able to think through what was best for me without any unwanted suggestions. I would definitely recommend Home Guys if you need to sell your home effortlessly. Huge thanks to Brad.

I was exceptionally impressed by the integrity and competence of Minnesota Home Guys. Their straightforward approach and honest evaluation of the facts was impressive and invaluable for my decision making process. They provided a skilled and through examination of my property to give a clear range of potential options, with additional information to evaluate each option. I worked with Brad Sauer and appreciated his expertise and communication skills. I especially appreciated the careful consideration of my needs and the absence of any sales pressure. I highly recommend Minnesota Home Guys.

Will not return my phone call. Purchased a home that they flipped and are regretting the purchase big time. Unfortunately they had the JV team doing the work inside. We are accepting the consequences and are doing the best we can to make it our dream house.

I was looking into having my place bought outright, but James suggested I sell the house outright to obtain more equity. We listed the house at $199,000 and sold it for $210,000! My realtor, Tim, was very knowledgeable and made the process as easy as could be. I am definitely going to hire Minnesota Home Guys for any other real estate needs in the future.
