Your Orono Realtor
As Orono Realtors working in the area and a former graduate of Orono High School, I can say first hand it’s a beautiful area. When I attended high school in Orono and growing up in the Long Lake / Medina area we spent a lot of time in Orono and on Lake Minnetonka…there’s no place like it. Years later, now working in the area, it’s exciting to see so much growth in the community and the gorgeous homes we have the pleasure to be part of.
