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…


We provide Development Consulting + Brokerage for Owners and Entrepreneurs in walkable urban neighborhoods.

Our experience with complex development 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.

How do we do that?


We actively seek a mixture of development consulting and brokerage because it gives us a deeper understanding of the motivations of all parties. Having a balanced perspective can create opportunities to get to yes.

Our development consulting follows a rigorous approach based on  exploring, evaluating and executing our client’s vision.  We can complete  feasibility studies, due diligence, financing, project management and asset management for office, retail and residential projects.

We will work tirelessly to help our clients improve their asset value. We create leasing strategies for each property that are informed by our experience in landlord and tenant leasing transactions. Our goal is to create a successful long term relationship with each client.

The depth of our development experience means we can guide tenants through the entire process, from leasing through construction.



We are looking for clients who are passionate about their business and community.
