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 beautiful lake country, peppered with homes, lake homes, cottages, and the quiet lake life 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:
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.
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.
