Page 12 Cold Spring Record Tuesday, November 26, 2013 in Four Reps a Half Century of Realty Experience By David V. LeVine "I feel that Cold Spring is a per- fect venue to open up our entire northern Minnesota operation. Being in a smaller town that caters a lot toward vacation homes and cabins as well as a great and thriv- ing local population; it's the perfect combination of cities that we want to grow our business in." Those were the words of Marshall Saunders, one of the Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Results in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, an- nouncing the opening of their newest agency here in Cold Spring, bringing their total office count in Minnesota and Wisconsin up to 26. The four gentlemen who will man this newest realty effort here previous donor of this site, you RE/MAX Results opened their Cold Spring office at 109 Red River Avenue South. are Curt Karls, Dan Storz, Kevin Breuchel and Ken Anderson. Each are residents and, combined, they total a half century of real estate sales experience. Through the years, the office at 109 Red River Avenue South was once home to a Nierenhausen family before segueing into Chain of Lakes Mortgage and then Century 21. The building sat empty for two years before the RE/MAX Results decision to open operations here. The transformation of Cold Spring continues to align with its Hometown Pride motto. In just the last decade, Cold Spring Granite moved from its longtime site near the Sank River to an impressive new plant and offices on West Highway 23. The Brewery has completely trans- formed its Red River Avenue com- plex and added a Distribution Center on County Road 2. Teal's Market departed downtown and became a true Super Market, fronting Highway 23's eastern entrance to the city. Schwieters auto dealership came to town, fur- ther strengthening the business community. And now, as a sort of frosting on the cake, comes Granite Community Bank's new edifice across the street from Teal's Market. The above illustrates and repre- sents now and future realty oppor- tunities. We met the aforementioned realtors recently and easily left with the impression that they are a team of well-rounded and experienced individuals with a collective ambition to add to the residential/commercial and community growth of our Richmond, Rockville and Cold Spring communities. Curt, Dan, Kevin and Ken are part of a global company of 90,000 Sales Associates who have made it possible to say that nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX. RE/MAX Results is open for business with an invitation to drop in and visit.

Mr. Jenniges stated that the work Xcel was contracted for was in 2 phases: Phase I moved the electricity to the alleys from Main St. and was completed and paid for. Phase II was to move power off Main St. to the side streets, which was completed about a year ago. The agreement with Xcel for Phase H was to be $147,661.75. Xcel sent a bill for $170,049.98, $22,000 more than the agreement. Mr. Jenniges stated that "Matt" with Rinke-Noonan inquired about the difference in the charges. Xcel responded that there was additional work time and tree trimming. Jenniges stated that the memo from "Matt" stated to Xcel Energy that the City of Richmond is not obligated to pay the amount of $170,000 only the contracted $146,661.75. Matt from Rinke Noonan suggested paying the contractual amount of $147,661.75 to Xcel Energy. Mr. Evens asked Mr. Jenniges if he had had this type issue with oth- er cities and Xcel Energy, to which Jenniges replied that he had indeed. Mr. Bode advised council that the issue at hand is whether or not to pay the amount billed by Xcel- $170,049. The $147,661 as contracted has already been approved.
