Gunflint Lodge & Gunflint Outfitters
"We engaged SVN | Northco to assist us with the sale of the Gunflint Lodge and Gunflint Outfitters. Our family has owned Gunflint for nearly 100 years, so it was a bittersweet decision to sell this asset. SVN | Northco was extremely responsive, professional, efficient, and effective throughout the entire process. We ultimately closed a very complex asset sale with great results for both the buyer and the seller."
Bruce Kerfoot – Owner – Seller
"In planning to sell our resort, after 30 years of ownership and operation, I spent significant time on due diligence to define which firm would best help us with that process. We subsequently engaged SVN | Northco. We were very pleased with their depth of experience with Midwest resorts, their professional skills and their marketing reach as they assisted us through a successful sale."

The University of St. Thomas – Gainey Conference Center and Hotel:
"Based on the recommendations of people we respected, we engaged SVN | Northco to assist us with the sale of the Gainey Conference Center and Hotel. The Gainey Center was a very unique property with a limited potential market. The University of St. Thomas had used the off-campus center for events and classes over the years, but decided that it was time to sell. The SVN | Northco team was professional, engaging, optimistic and impressive. Thanks to the creativity and expertise of the SVN | Northco team, we ultimately closed a very complex asset sale with great results for all involved."
