Faces of Snipe: Paul St Andrew of LongfellowHomes.net

Snipe Sign by Paul St Andrew

If you live in the Longfellow Community of Minneapolis, you may have seen some snipe litter advertising longfellowhomes.net. It popped up in August in our city parks. Seriously, the person behind this decided that it would be a good idea to advertise his personal business in the city’s parks. I’ve taken down at least half a dozen of these signs and have heard from friends in the neighborhood who’ve taken down signs as well.

That person behind the snipe litter is Paul St Andrew with RE/MAX Results:

Paul’s trying to make a living. I get that. But, so are the hundred or so real estate agents serving the Longfellow Community who somehow manage to make a living without planting signs in our neighborhood’s parks.

As a Longfellow resident with some decent real estate connections, I’m asked for referrals a couple times a month on average. One agent who clearly won’t be on my referral list is Paul St Andrew since he’s decided that it’s cool to litter in the Longfellow Community for personal profit.

For what it’s worth, here’s where Paul St Andrew currently has sold properties:

And where he has active listings:

I’m not sayin’ but I’m just sayin’ that I don’t see any action in the Longfellow Community on either of those maps. Sure, he’s capable of representing buyers or sellers in Longfellow, but there are other agents who have more experience in the Longfellow Community who don’t litter the neighborhood with snipe advertising in the parks.

If you’re looking for an agent to work with to buy or sell a home in Longfellow, let me know. I can put you in touch with someone who knows the neighborhood well, has a ton of experience, and doesn’t litter the neighborhood’s parks with snipe advertising.

  1. How do you feel about Travis Erickson and his constant mailings in the area?

    I give him a lot of credit. I remember when he and his wife (I think) knocked on my door quite a few years ago, introducing himself. The area was dominated by River Realty and a few others, but slowly he got more and more business until now, where I think of him as the main Longfellow Realtor. That’s very impressive. He did it without littering, but he did sorta overwhelm us with mailings.

  2. @Moe, Travis Erickson is a tenacious advertiser with his printed real estate reports, but at least provides some value with his marketing pieces by including recent local transaction reports in his pieces. That gives me a somewhat interesting nugget of information while moving his advertising to the recycling bin.

    Pat Rosaves does a nice job with her articles in the Longfellow Messenger.

    Jay Anderson targets Longfellow effectively with bus benches.

    Elaine Anderson does a great job marketing with for sale and sold signs in yards.

    Those are some names I see from people that appear to be making good livings in real estate in Longfellow. I’m sure there are quite a few more who do so, since there are 93 active listings in the community today that are listed with a wide range of companies.
