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.


2018 HOUSING INCENTIVE PROGRAM The City of Annandale is offering reduced Sewer and Water Access Charges (SAC/WAC) for the construction of new single-family and twin home units.

WHAT TO KNOW • The program is available Jan. 1, 2018 - Dec. 31, 2018. • Up to 8 units will be eligible for the program. The program

Making Ice & Memories When winter arrives, conversations turn to ice. How are the roads? How thick are the lakes now? When will it stay cold enough to flood the rink? The week after Christmas was the coldest on record in Minnesota, ever, and gave a crew of

dedicated volunteers the opportunity to bring life back to the corner of Park Street and Pleasant Avenue. It was quickly transformed into a space for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

Annandale's skating rink is owned by the school district and is maintained by both the school and the city. Service organizations like the Lion's Club, Girl Scouts and the AHS Service Learning class have all contributed to the upkeep and improvements made to the rink over time. Their partnership has made having a community rink possible!


Skaters are welcome to use the ice any time. Lights can be turned on between 5-9 p.m. with a switch on the north side of

the warming house. They do automatically shut off at 9 p.m. Rink Rats brings the youngest members of our community

to the ice throughout the winter. This entry level program is designed to introduce kids to skating and for parents to see

if they are interested in hockey. So bundle up, dust off those skates, and go make some memories on the rink this winter. A special thank you and recognition is given to the following individuals who give of their time and energy each winter for the love of the ice and our community: Keith Jerpseth, Derek Groth, Jim Hallstrom, Mark Logeais, Jim Splinter and Patrick Splinter.
