As a company, there are few things that we

believe


EDUCATION FIRST Our focus in every working relationship is on educating our buyers and sellers to the very best of our ability. If you are well educated, we believe you will feel comfortable with the sales process and be prepared to make the best decisions for yourself.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE MATTERS We know the neighborhoods, woods, roads and water. How is the fishing? What length would the school bus ride be? Is this road

plowed in the winter? There are thousands of good questions. Your agent will have answers.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE IMPORTANT We maintain strong relationships with service providers in our

area that you may need in your purchase or sale. This assures you

that you will have quality answers and solutions when questions or an unexpected problem arise.

TEAMWORK IS ESSENTIAL Our agents are independent, but are supported by the whole of the office. We believe that working together impacts our service in a

powerful way. When we help each other out, we are able to better serve our customers.

NEGOTIATION IS KEY Putting an offer on the table as a buyer, or reviewing an offer that is being presented to you, is a pivotal moment in any search or

sale. Guidance that is clear, informative, and sincere is important.

Our agents will take you through each step with your best interest in mind.

WE ARE A MARKETING COMPANY We are driven by creativity, excellence and innovation. Advertising should be smart and targeted. One checklist does not apply to all, so expect a plan that is customized to your one-of-a-kind property! Beware, we love to talk marketing!

THIS SHOULD BE FUN We don’t deny that buying and selling real estate can be among

the most important decisions you will make, but we hope it will be fun too. We are privileged to be your guide, and hope that in the end, it is a road you will be glad you traveled.

W hat a

place this is.

The Heart of the Lakes is located a half hour South of St. Cloud and an hour’s drive Northwest

of the Twin Cities on Highway 55. Although near these bustling areas and their conveniences, the Annandale Area is absent of traffic, alive with small town tradition and just when you need it most, it can be oh, so wonderfully quiet.

A peaceful but convenient destination also means a valuable one. This is truly a market all its

own. Comparables are unique by body of water, neighborhood and community. Working with the most established real estate team in the area guarantees you dependable professionals that are fun, comfortable to work with and incredibly knowledgeable. A firm understanding of the local market is key to a successful search or sale.

Seriously Local

At the heart of who we are, and why we all love what we do, is the Annandale area itself. The Heart

of the Lakes, as it has long been called, is a wonderful lake country area that attracts young families and retirees. Many who once vacationed here now live here full time, and it’s no wonder why. It’s a charming small town with great schools and endless recreation. It is important to us that we

surpass being just knowledgeable of the area, and that we also provide you with service that goes above and beyond. As clients of ours, you will be treated like a neighbor... because you are.


There are a couple of things at the core of what “Seriously Local” means: NICHE MARKETING Our focus is here. We know the local market, and its history, extremely well. If you’re looking at property and want to know specifics about fishing or a local school bus route, we have your answers. If you’re selling, these are things your buyer will want to know about too. As an independently-owned office, we make all of our own decisions, and at the heart of those decisions are what is best for serving our clients and the community.

LOCALLY-FOCUSED TECHNOLOGY We won’t adopt a tool or system just to impress you, but we will implement technology that makes sense for you as a buyer or

seller. For that reason our web site, www.oakrealtymn.com, is useful and full of local information. It offers quick links to area lakes, a fantastic map search, and upcoming open house information. Our daily hot list is a favorite, and the only resource of its kind for immediate updates solely on the Heart of the Lakes market. HEART FOR THE COMMUNITY This area is much more than the place we work. We are all active in the community, from various non-profit/civic groups to lake

associations, schools and churches. We love participating in local traditions like Annandale’s historic 4th of July parade and the Chili Cook-Off, among many others. We also join in to support other surrounding communities in their celebrations as well.

From 1980-88, he owned and operated An-

Realtor since 1995. Mike says he considered a career in real estate long before he made the move. When he did, he looked at other

companies before deciding Oak would be the strongest, most progressive company to work with. He sees Oak more as a family, than a

team. “Everyone pulls together to help one

another out…You can’t stay in a bad mood

here, no matter how busy or hectic it gets.” He says he loves when “it all comes to togeth-

er” - finding a home that meets the needs of

his clients and knowing he made the process as easy as possible for them.

Mike enjoys spending time with his family: his wife Barb, 2 grown daughters, who live in Buffalo and Rockford, and a granddaughter and

grandson. He also enjoys the company of his

black lab Lucy and yellow lab Rosie. His hobbies include upland bird hunting and ice fish-

ing, and collections associated with both. One of his treasures is his 1966 Mustang. He’s been

its location on Oak Avenue, Annandale’s charmed Main Street. Our

In 1986 Don’s son Steve joined the business. Opportunities to own lakeshore property were abundant in those days. Lake homes and cabins in

the area ranged from $40,000-$100,000 and real estate companies literally held the keys to their front doors. The Sunday Star Tribune was widely-agreed to be the resource for new listings, and buyers often came through our office door with that ad in hand, eager to look at property.

Oak Realty acquired Lake Country Properties in neighboring Maple Lake in 1997, our local presence expanded to two offices, and our staff grew again.

to build longstanding relationships. Relationships based on honesty, respect and fair business practices. We love taking our customers for a drive through the area and educating them on the various lakes, neigh-

borhoods and their histories. While the majority of today’s buyers (and sellers) have done research online before speaking to an agent, many are quick to realize there is a lot to learn about this area, and a visit with a local expert is a great place to start.

We are proud to be an innovative company. We enjoy seeking new solu-

tions to bring into our business and have continued to do so as we grow and change. We want tools that help us do our job better and more

efficiently, and systems that help you buy or sell property with great-

er confidence. While no one can predict the future, it seems almost a

certainty that the Heart of the Lakes will continue to retain its warm character and draw new people to its lakes and countryside. For those that its lifestyle appeals to, (frankly, we wonder how it couldn’t) our friendship and services will be there.
