Shakopee Real Estate – Northstar MN MLS Member
Located just south of Eden Prairie and just west of Savage, Shakopee is on the banks of the Minnesota River, which sets the tone for this outer suburb. Growth began here in the 1960s, but took off in earnest when Highway 169 was realigned to better serve the city in the 1990s. While the commute is fairly long into the Twin Cities metro area, most residents make that commute to take advantage of the relaxed lifestyle.
