I grew up in Hopkins and know it very well. Selling homes in Hopkins is wonderful because I know it so well. It's interesting, when I was growing up downtown Hopkins was the place to hang out. Some of that is changed over the years as the neighborhoods have aged. The homes remain great for starting out, first-time homebuyers. The transition though that Hopkins is taken in the last five years has really been amazing. Not only have I seen prices rise but I've seen all types of new businesses moving into the downtown area. Not only restaurants but specific microbreweries and other businesses that have really attracted a lot of younger families to the area. Right now the homes on the Avenue, are really going at a premium. It's a very attractive place to live because you get that feeling of a small town at your 10 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.
