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.

Land or Lots for Sale in Orono




Orono is located approximately 15 miles west of downtown Minneapolis on the north shore of Lake Minnetonka in Hennepin County, Minnesota. The total area of the city is 24 square miles including 16 square miles of land area and 8 square miles of lakes. Orono's population is approximately 7,500.



When Minnesota became a state and western Hennepin County was surveyed and divided into townships, all of Orono south of Watertown Road was located in Excelsior Township, with the area north of Watertown Road being located in Medina Township. The citizens of Orono, few as they were, found the going difficult in having to negotiate the lake in order to transact business in far away Excelsior.  So, in 1868, the townships were realigned with everything north of the Narrows becoming part of Medina.


The separate Township of Orono was created out of the southern half of Medina on April 9, 1889. The city was named by Major George Brackett, a native of Orono, Maine, who first used it to designate the area now known as Brackett's Point.


Orono Village was incorporated effective January 1, 1955.
