Rosemount Real Estate – Northstar MN MLS Member
Located to the East of Apple Valley and south of Eagan, Rosemount is a growing outer suburb of the Twin Cities. Founded by Irish settlers, it retains place names and other links with its past. In recent decades, Rosemount has experienced a growth spurt, going from a small rural farming community to a growing suburb. A long commute takes residents into the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area, but the relaxed rural small town rural atmosphere is appealing to many who seek an escape from urban stresses.
Jake Miller – Jake grew up in Rosemount, Minnesota and started his career in real estate in the mortgage business in 2003.
