Who We Are

Element is a commercial real estate advisory firm that provides development consulting and leasing services for owners and entrepreneurs in walkable urban neighborhoods in the Minneapolis /St. Paul metro.

We strive 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.

Our goal is to create amazing spaces that make people’s lives better.

Our Approach

Successful projects don’t happen unless you embrace the idea of possibility.

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?

CREATIVITY is intentionally doing something different and better…for our clients and for the community.

Drive Graphic

DRIVE is simply tenacity…you’re not going to find a firm that works harder, regardless of the project.


We’re able to push beyond what might ordinarily be possible.  Those boring and uninspiring projects suddenly become interesting and transformative.  And they leave a real impact on both our clients and the community.

Our Capabilities

We actively seek a mixture of development consulting and brokerage because it gives us a deeper understanding of the motivations of all parties, and that balanced perspective helps us to craft satisfying solutions for our clients.

we are experienced commercial real estate advisors.


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


We never stop working to improve the value of your asset. Our leasing and repositioning strategies are informed by our experience in landlord and tenant leasing transactions. We understand how to make the process go smoothly so that you and your tenants have a great experience.


The depth of our development experience means we can guide tenants through the entire process, from leasing through construction. We have helped dozens of business owners to find office, retail, restaurant, medical and industrial space. We sweat the details so you don’t have to.
