Wayzata Real Estate – Northstar MLS Minnesota Member
Wayzata is one of the three most affluent cities in Minnesota, and living in this community is considered to be highly desirable by many successful Minnesotans. Once a resort community, serving the Twin Cities, it evolved into a luxurious small city, with homes second to none in the entire area. Small in population and area, it is not small in its reputation as one of the best places to live in the state. Sporting small, but excellent public and private schools, education is one reason its residents take a natural pride in their community.
