about the Vaz+Harwood Team

There’s nothing more important in life than our home.

It’s where we live and where we raise our family! We love helping our customers make their next move—and with one of the biggest financial decisions of their life. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or have moved several times, it’s our privilege and honor to help you find your home, and we promise you nothing but our best service, expertise and care.

We’re Realtors because we love helping families of all kinds sell their home, find their next home, navigate buying their first home, or make a great move that helps their family grow. We started our careers in advertising and marketing, and we ran our own advertising agency for a decade. We bring all of that marketing and business know-how, connections and experience to help our clients in real estate.

We’ve lived in our home in the Standish-Ericsson neighborhood of south Minneapolis, since 2005.
