My husband and I moved out of our previous twin home into a new twin home at the end of March 2009. The twin home was listed with another realtor at that time. Not only did that realtor not work to sell our home, he never even bothered to send our copy of the contract we signed with him.

In mid October on a Monday, we received a call from Rob Monson, of ReMax Results, where he informed us that our twin home had been off the market for two weeks. The previous realtor had not contacted us at all for over two months, so we were unaware that it was off the market. 

We set up a meeting with Rob Monson for the next day & at that time signed w ReMax Results. On Wed he sent his professional photographer to take pictures of the home for the web virtual tour. On Thursday a For Sale sign had been placed on the lawn and the house pictures were on the web. The pictures were awesome. On Friday they have a first showing followed by a couple more showings that first weekend. By the following Monday, one week after that introductory call, we already had an offer & the person buying wanted to close on Nov 20th, which would have been 30 days after ReMax Results had put the house on the market.

Needless to say, we were very pleased that Rob had taken the initiative to contact us. We will definitely refer others to ReMax Results, the service & communication with them was excellent.

Overview:

Mendota Heights, population 11,071, is a high-quality, family-oriented residential community, with the feel of the country and the amenities of a city. While it is centrally located in the metropolitan area, the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers form a natural green belt around it, allowing the community to maintain a quiet, private way of life, unique in the Twin Cities.

 

History:

The Mendota area was acquired in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. In 1805, Lt. Zebulon Pike was sent to the upper Mississippi river with orders to find the source of the river, purchase sites from Native Americans for future military posts, and bring a few important chiefs back to St. Louis for talks. Pike purchased over 155,000 acres, including over half of modern Mendota Heights. Construction on Fort Snelling began in 1819.


By the 1820s, a government ferry operated across the Minnesota River, connecting the fort and the city of Mendota, which had sprung up quickly around the American Fur Company post that had been opened in 1825. The settlement, important economically and militarily, grew steadily and in 1834, Henry Sibley arrived to manage the trading post. He built a stone warehouse and home, and became the civilian host for visiting explorers, statesmen, writers, artists, and international guests. In 1851, the northeast side of Pilot Knob was the meeting place chosen by the Dakota for the signing of the Treaty of Mendota, which opened the lands west of the Mississippi, including Dakota County, to settlement. 


In 1858, the village of Mendota became part of the newly formed Mendota Township, where it would remain until 1887 until it was incorporated once again as a village. 1926 witnessed another historical moment when the Mendota Bridge, the longest poured concrete bridge in the world at the time, was completed.


On February 21, 1956, the residents of the remainder of Mendota Township voted to incorporate as the Village of Mendota Heights.
