Element is a commercial real estate advisory firm that is changing the shape of the real estate business.  

Providing development consulting and leasing services for owners and entrepreneurs in walkable, urban neighborhoods in the Minneapolis / St. Paul metro, Element strives to be a different kind of real estate firm. For too long there has been a quiet acceptance of the bland and uninspiring in commercial real estate.

At Element, our goal is to create amazing spaces that make people’s lives better. This means working to better know and understand our clients’ needs and wants. It means not being satisfied with the status quo. It means bringing vision, drive and creativity to all that we do. 

Element means something better. Element means possibility

Element is different. Our experience with a wide range of complex developments has taught us that successful projects don’t happen unless you embrace the idea of possibility. Across the range of our services, we explore options and consider angles that typically go ignored. The result? Projects that reach their true potential and satisfied clients who receive tremendous value.
