“Bluestem was really disciplined about keeping their word.”
Bluestem was really disciplined about keeping their word. They said they would deliver something in this amount of time, and they were really serious about that. And, at the same time, they did not sacrifice any quality in order to meet their timeline. They were really disciplined, and they had very high-quality workmanship, and they used high quality products.
- Kari, Minneapolis
From beginning to end, we felt a part of the process and a partner in it. ...It’s really the focal point of our home and has transformed the way that we live here.
- Teresa, EdinaVIEW PROJECT
“Very Honest With Us”
[Bluestem was] very honest with us about what was happening from the beginning. They gave us an estimate they felt was fair and they still came in under that estimate for the repairs and fixing all of that. I mean, again, that just shows integrity and not trying to take advantage of us but trying to make us happy.

“I Love Working With The Team”
I love working with the team - professionally, personally, and it's so clear that that is what you have. And yes, I am using the word respect a lot, but it is something that is so important to me that people treat each other well.
- Trish, St. Paul
“The Final Product Is Amazing”
My kitchen...I cannot even remember what the kitchen was like before, because this kitchen works. [It's] perfectly me. The upstairs is perfectly me, it is beautiful and functional. The final product is amazing.
