About | Since she was a young child, homes have held a special fascination with Jennifer. Growing up in a southern Indiana town renowned internationally for its architecture, her interest in historic homes became a passion. Eventually that led to restoration projects, her largest being an 1893 Queen Anne Victorian. At some point it had been converted to five apartments, but Jennifer and her husband brought it back to its original single family splendor. Since moving to Minnesota, Jennifer has created a special niche in the Twin Cities as a “Historic Home Specialist”. Clients quickly discover that her passion for old homes is a great advantage when it comes to marketing their home. While most agents just see them as another home to sell, Jennifer understands and appreciates the historical significance, architectural detail, and special story that each home possesses. She takes the time to research her historic home listings, digging deep into their pasts by utilizing historical societies, old documents, books, and even finding previous owners for important information. Buyers of old homes love the story behind them, and Jennifer is the perfect “story teller” to share it. Jennifer also takes it a step further by writing her blog Historic Homes of Minnesota. As a photographer, her camera is always at her side as she travels around Minnesota, just in case she comes upon an old church, historic home, or architectural masterpiece. She takes her finds, researches them, and places the stories on the blog. Jennifer is quickly becoming known as the local Storyteller for historic homes and the “go-to agent” for marketing historic real estate in the Twin Cities. She is a member of the Minnesota Historical Society, writes the Ramsey Hill Home Tour Book, and is an Old Home Certified instructor with the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota.

Known as one of Minnesota’s best examples of the Prairie School style, as well as one of the finest designed by its architects, William Purcell and George Elmslie, this modern home for the time was the talk of the town when construction was completed in 1913. Built for Elmore S. Hoyt, then President of the Red Wing Union Stoneware Company, the home was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1975. The house remained in the Hoyt family until 1976, and has only had two other owners in its long history. Well positioned on its lot, the home stands as a testament of the modern movement that still resonates today. Sections of the second floor cantilever over the main floor with many of the brackets featuring fret-sawn ornamental panels of botanical and geometric
