About Minnesota Home Guys


“Provide the most trusted home buying service in the Minneapolis metro area.  We strive to provide the simplest, highest integrity, most transparent service possible.  We exist to serve you.”

Core Values 

  • Honesty – We are up front and forthright in everything we do
  • Transparency – We explain all of your options, even if it means not working with us.
  • Integrity – We always say a deal has to work for all parties, or it’s not going to happen.  If we think you will be better off selling through a different avenue, we let you know that up front.  People come first in our business.  We are here to help you find the best solution.
  • Customers First – Our goal is to make selling as simple and stress-free as possible.  We will go the extra mile to make sure the sale goes smoothly for you.  This may mean giving extra days or weeks to move, providing professional movers, taking care of unwanted items left behind, paying back taxes or mortgage payments, taking over mortgages, taking care of inspections and repairs required by cities, whatever it takes to get it done, we have seen and done it all.

Our Story

Minnesota Home Guys is a real estate solutions company based out of Minneapolis founded by Jaden Ghylin and James Kolde.  We’re a family-owned company, and we run our business with family values.  The owners of Minnesota Home Guys have bought and sold over 100 homes and have worked through just about every possible situation in real estate.

Our priority is helping homeowners like you find solutions for that property that you just need to get rid of — whether you’re going through a divorce, facing foreclosure, can’t seem to close the sale, or just simply need to be DONE with your house once and for all.

We’ll work together until we find a win-win solution for everybody.
