Ichi Tokyo Small Business Highlight


Ichi Tokyo

Nate Carty chose Ichi Tokyo as my restaurant to highlight this month because they are the best spot in town for fresh sushi! All you can eat sushi for lunch and dinner is a no-brainer if you're hungry and looking for some creative rolls. They have a huge menu of different hibachi dishes as well if sushi is not your thing. Not to mention their customer service is top-notch, as well as the cleanliness of their restaurants. I try to get there every other week, if not once a week, and have some of their great sushi, and I suggest you try it as well!

Compassion Acre Small Business Highlight


Compassion Acre

Gunnar Grimsrud chose to highlight Compassion Acre Congratulations to Allison Kocak for following her dreams and purchasing her very own commercial building for her doggy daycare business! 

I met Allison around a year ago because she inquired about one of the commercial buildings that RGI had listed near the YMCA. We toured it, discussed pricing, and ultimately decided that the location would not work out for her. However, Allison gave me the great honor of representing her as her Realtor as she continued her search for her dream location. 

Little did we know, this was the start of a grueling 10-month search that was full of rejection, failed negotiations, and heartbreak. However, Allison and I did not view it that way as each rejection and blocked road was a learning experience for us that gave us determination and insight to keep pushing forward. 

Eventually, nearly a year into our search we finally found the perfect spot on Commerce Drive in southwest Rochester. The owner was Jerry Fischer and his wife Ruth; a couple who has had a strong presence in the dog boarding industry for several decades. They were able to see Allison’s vision and dream for the location and after many weeks of negotiation, we were able to close on the sale of 3902 Commerce Ct. 

I am so incredibly proud of Allison for her hard work and determination even through the toughest of times. We faced obstacles that would cause most people to quit but she stayed focused on the goal all along. I am honored to call her a friend, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for her, her family, and her business.

Tyrol Ski & Sport Small Business Highlight


Tyrol Ski & Sport
Austin Braatz chose to highlight Tyrol Ski & Sports, a local small business, who has been supplying outdoor enthusiasts in Rochester with gear since 1965. As one of my favorite stores in town, I go there for all my snowboarding needs. I appreciate how knowledgeable and friendly their staff has been to me over the years, and I jumped at the opportunity to highlight them! They of course specialize in ski and snowboarding products, but also have a great selection of winter clothing. If you’re looking to get some gear this winter I highly recommend checking out what the experienced staff at Tyrol has to offer.

Tace JED Small Business Highlight

Taco JED

Dylan Carty had the opportunity of meeting Steve Dunn the owner of Taco Jed in September of 2017. Steve had been looking for locations in Rochester, Mankato, St cloud, and Duluth to start his new concept taco restaurant. Steve was not from Rochester and had minimal market knowledge but he had built successful restaurant concepts before so he knew what he was looking for. Steve has always joked with Dylan that he picked him to help him find his location because he is a big Bob Dylan fan and it just made sense given his name. Steve and Dylan spent a lot of time together identifying locations and putting together market data before Steve selected Rochester as the site for his 1st location. In October of 2018, Steve opened Taco Jed at 808 S Broadway. Anyone who knows Steve knows he is very active in the restaurant and loves his customers like family and his broker is no different! Steve and Dylan remain good friends and are always in talks about future growth and possible expansion for Taco Jed!

Victoria Family Highlight


Victoria Family

Nick Pompeian met Natalie Victoria about nine years ago at a Post Bulletin networking event at the Rochester Golf and Country Club. I had just got started in commercial real estate and my Dad had mentioned that I needed to go and build my network. Back in those days, networking events are how we met people in hopes of building relationships and our business. I knew Natalie from the many dinners that my family had at the original Victoria’s which was in the Brackenridge Plaza on 2nd Street SW. However, I never had spoken to her in a professional setting such as this.  I will never forget speaking with Natalie that day. One of the first questions she asked was, “Are you working with your dad now?” I remember nervously saying yes. She responded by asking me for my business card, which I vividly remember nervously grabbing out of my coat pocket to give to her. Her final response to me was, “I am going to call you.” 

 I quickly found out that she and her partner were looking for a building as they wanted to start a bar. I knew exactly the building, and after meeting on several occasions, Natalie and Sid Victoria and Christine and Eric Stahl decided to make an offer on the former Hight and Randall building located at 10 3rd Street SW. To make a long story short, that offer was accepted, and the Tap House became a staple in downtown Rochester. Because the Tap House was such a success, a few years later I had the pleasure of working with Natalie and Christine again and represented them in the purchasing of a lot on west circle drive where the Tap House West End sits today.

Throughout the years, I have had the pleasure of building a real friendship with Natalie and the others in her family. We regularly talk about the kids, what they are up to, what vacations they are going on, etc… Natalie has also played a prominent role in my personal life. I met my wife at the Tap House on November 21, 2017. I held her surprise 30th birthday at the Tap House, which I later proposed to her that night. We have had our annual office dinner at Victoria’s for years. Victoria’s served the luncheon at my Dad’s funeral. We have had many family gatherings over the Holidays at Victoria’s. The countless happy hours and late-night beers at the Tap House and Tap House West End provided some wonderful memories. For many of life’s big and memorable events, Natalie and her family have been there serving up their hospitality and love.

I will never forget the moment I met Natalie. I often have thought to myself why, at that time, would someone that is established want to call a young kid like me who had no experience in real estate. The answer is very clear; it was because she saw the potential and wanted to see the next generation grow! And that is exactly what Natalie and Sid are doing with their new restaurant. They are taking a chance on the next generation which I guarantee will be well worth it. 

In closing, I want to say thank you, Natalie, Sid, and Victoria's family. Thank you for taking a chance on a 24-year-old, who had no experience, no resume of sales, and no business working with someone such as yourselves. Thank you for helping me and my family in some of life’s most exciting and difficult times by being there for us when we needed you most. Most of all, thank you for taking a chance on family, being patient, and educating the next generation on how to build a successful business. I am forever grateful to you and your family, and I am so excited to see Sorellina’s come to life. Congratulations a million times over and thank you for all you have done for me, my family, and my business! I am looking forward to continuing the work we have started and built on the strong and meaningful relationship we have with one another.

Real Deals Small Business Highlight


Real Deals

Bucky Beeman and Dylan Carty met Ashley and Andrew early on in their entrepreneurial journey. They had an idea to open a store called "Real Deals" which had been run in other states across the Midwest. Ashley was extremely excited to bring this store to Rochester. The Design District of Rochester is where we helped them get a location after looking around and coming back to this space multiple times. The affordability of an old warehouse and being close to other businesses of scale was the deciding factor. Never could we have guessed that Ashley would be this busy and successful in such a short time. Ashley shared that there were many hurdles and roadblocks such as road construction, COVID-19 while getting into business, but overall she has enjoyed it despite having many obstacles early on. Social media live streams were how she combated the issues and made sales while people were at home and not working during the pandemic. These live streams built a community and fanbase through Facebook and Instagram where people could communicate about what products they should buy and why. These online supporters helped Ashley grow to the point where she reached out to Bucky and Dylan with a huge vision that she had for a new location. After a short time and lots of negotiation, they secured a piece of land for a fair deal. At this current moment, Ashley is talking to general contractors and architects to get ready to turn dirt on the new store location. They will be leaving the store on 6th Ave and this site will be for lease and hopefully a springboard for another small business into the community. Come next spring or summer Ashley will have a brand new beautiful store to provide great products to the community. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to work with Ashley and Andrew to get to the next level of business. We are fortunate that they have decided that we are the best firm for them to work with.

First and foremost, I would like to thank all our staff for all their hard work and dedication this year. These past two years have been extremely difficult for everyone, as we all have had to endure the effects of the pandemic. So much has been sacrificed, but we have been so fortunate to be able to continue to do what we have always done; serve our clients and sell real estate. 
We have been extremely busy, and our staff are truly the heartbeat of our organization. With the challenges these past two years have posed, a lot of extra hours, grinding through deals, and showing up has been something that everyone has embraced. Their dedication, passion, and teamwork is evident every day, and for that, I say thank you!
Secondly, I would like to thank my partners. Thank you for riding this crazy wave. Thank you for your support. Thank you for building something together bigger than any of us could imagine. Thank you for being open and honest. Thank you for being you. 
Lastly, and most importantly, I would like to personally thank all of you, our clients, our friends, and our partners. Without you, we could not continue to do what we do. So, thank you for everything that you have done, are doing, and will continue to do. 
In this issue you will see just a few of the many clients that we have been so blessed to help along in their real estate journey. This is just a handful, and please know that each one of you is so special to us. If we were to spotlight every single client, the newsletter surely would be hundreds of pages long!

  23. Remove air conditioners from windows for cover them with insulated liners, to prevent drafts
  24. Flush a hot water heater tank to remove sediment, and check the pressure relief valve to make sure it's in the proper working order.

“Good Morning Newsletter” Realty Growth Inc Vol. 3

"Good Morning Newsletter" Realty Growth Inc
 

Happy fall everyone!

As we begin the fourth quarter of 2021, we start thinking about the end of the year and planning for the new year. With that comes thinking about year end and any tax planning that needs to be done. Around this time can really begin to become stressful, however, remember there are always people that are here to help. Your greatest ally is your financial team, which oftentimes will consist of your accountant, financial advisor, and possibly, real estate advisor. 

 

So you might be asking yourself, what does real estate and taxes have to do with one another? Well, the answer is quite a bit! Believe it or not, there are a few different routes a real estate investor can take to help with taxes. Two specific strategies are through accelerated depreciation and what is known as a 1031 tax deferred exchange. 

 

Accelerated depreciation is any depreciation method used for accounting or income tax purposes that allow for higher deductions in the earlier years. This in turn could help offset gains on a property. This can be accomplished through what is known as a cost segregation study. 

 

A 1031 exchange gets its name from Section 1031 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, which allows you to defer paying capital gains taxes when you sell an investment property and reinvest the proceeds from the sale within certain time limits in a property or properties of like kind and equal or greater value

 

With either of these be sure to consult with your accountant and attorney to be sure that this is the right thing for you!

 

We continue to see a strong market in Rochester, despite fairly low cap rates when compared to the past. In October, our office closed ten property closings, including a Family Dollar Store in Stewartville, Minnesota, as well as the former Associated Bank branch building by the Apache Mall. We also were able to execute six new sales contracts in the month. The general market also saw steady sales and leasing during the month of September. All in all, another very strong month! 

 

In closing, I hope that you all are enjoying the changes that the fall brings, as well as gearing up for what will be an amazing holiday season! Stay warm, start your tax planning, and begin thinking about how you want to build your real estate portfolio in 2022. Please remember, we are always here to help! Thank you again for your business, your support, and all that you do. 

 

Sincerely, 

 

Nick Pompeian, Partner and Broker Realty Growth Incorporated

“Good Morning Newsletter” Vol. 2 Realty Growth Inc

"Good Morning Newsletter" Realty Growth Inc

When my father started Realty Growth Incorporated in 1978, one of his first orders of business was to create a tagline that separated him from others in his field. The tagline that he created was “Happiness is positive cash flow!” This tagline became synonymous with Ed and Realty Growth and could be found on all of the company marketing material and business cards. It became what Realty Growth was known for; creating happiness for clients through positive cash flow. 

Today, we continue to use this simple yet powerful phrase on a daily basis, and see the same results. Internally, our office closed seven transactions, signed six new purchase agreements, signed two commercial leases, and have eighteen pending sales transactions! This type of activity proves the dedication, expertise and knowledge that our agents, brokers and support staff bring to our industry. This also proves that “happiness is positive cash flow” remains true even to this day, as we have been able to provide our clients with lasting satisfaction and performing assets.

From the broader market, sales and lease transactions have remained steady and continued to transact. Our most recent information based on sales done internally and market information from outside sources has shown an average cap rate of around 6%, with a broad range of sales ranging from $800,000 for commercial land to a $10,000,000 sale for an apartment complex. With all of that said, the market in Rochester remains well and strong! 

In closing, we want to wish you all a wonderful start to the fall season, and hope that you all are doing well, staying healthy, and maintaining that positive cash flow! Thank you again for all that you do, and we look forward to bringing you all of the latest commercial real estate news. 

 

With Gratitude, 

 

Nick Pompeian,  Partner and Broker of Realty Growth Incorporated

Advice For A First Time Home Buyer
With Austin Braatz

With the market beginning to cool off after one of the most competitive housing markets we’ve ever seen, it is a great time to begin the conversation of how renters can prepare to take the major financial step of owning their first home. 


Educational Information

Did you know that you own your underground water service and underground electric service?  When planning to purchase real estate in the city of Rochester or if you already own, we recommend signing up for Rochester Public Utilities Service Assured.  The Service Assured Underground Utility Repair Program can protect you from unexpected breaks due to age, tree roots, or seasonal change

Status of the Market

The rental market has been very active over the last month. Going into fall we should see a slight downtick in applications submitted for new units, as most people are locking down their leases in the summer months. Prices are holding at a steady rate from where they were about a year ago. The average rent for a 2 bedroom B-Class apartment is hovering right around the $850-$875 mark depending on location.

“Good Morning Newsletter” Vol. 1 Realty Growth Inc

"Good Morning Newsletter" Realty Growth Inc

 

It is with great pleasure to be writing to you all and welcoming you to our very first newsletter. This has been in the making for a while now, but as many of you know, things do not happen overnight. It takes time to come up with a plan and to execute it accordingly. But, here we are and are ready to provide you with the best and most up-to-date information in the commercial real estate market in Rochester and Southeast Minnesota!

 

For those of you who pay attention to the market, you know that things are still moving and shaking in Rochester. We, like many of you, were quite uncertain about what was to come from real estate in general. Specifically, two asset classes that were of concern were office and retail. Unfortunately, we, like many other cities, have seen businesses come and go and vacancies increase. However, we have seen a resurgence recently and have seen spaces be replaced with new businesses. Although we have a ways to go, it is good to see that interest and spaces are being filled. 

 

Sales and lease transactions have been steady, and pricing has remained fairly aggressive. Our most recent information based on sales done internally and market information from outside sources has shown an average cap rate of around 6.4%. Once again, there was concern that with Covid that this would have a negative impact on the values of the property. However, we have not seen that as much as maybe other cities around the country. We attribute this because of the strong employment base led by the incredible economic force of the Mayo Clinic,  the amazing city that we live in, and the resiliency of the community to push through these very difficult times. Rochester continues to be a beacon of hope and resilience.

 

Here in our office, we have also seen a lot of growth and resilience. We have welcomed a new office administrator, an additional property manager, and a social media and marketing creator despite the times we are in. I was always told that if you do not grow and adapt you die. With that said, we happily and excitedly welcome Paula, Austin, and Nathan to our ever-growing team and family. My father always said that you have to surround yourself with great people who are like-minded, passionate about what they do, and smarter than you to be truly successful. I feel that we have done so, and will continue to grow!

 

Since 1978 we have proudly served the Rochester and southeastern Minnesota community with integrity, honesty, and respect, and we look forward to doing so by continuing in our founder’s Ed Pompeian’s legacy. For those that are clients already, we thank you. For those who we have not yet helped, we look forward to educating and building a relationship with you that will last a lifetime.
