Farmington Minnesota was founded at the intersection of two state railroad lines and the Vermillion River. The original name of the town was Dakota City. The popular city train station was Farmington Station and non-residents began confusing the two names and identifying the town as Farmington. The town’s name was then permanently changed from Dakota City to Farmington.
Farmington is home to three properties listed on the Register of Historic Places for Dakota County: the Daniel F. Akin House, the Church of the Advent, and the Exchange Bank Building.

Sheryl Petrashek is a fantastic realtor! I have bought and sold several homes thru Sheryl for quite a few years and know that she does an exceptional job and goes above and beyond what any realtor would do. I recently once again listed my home thru Sheryl and as I knew from before she would be there and help thru every step of the process. Sheryl is not only a great listener and will help you find exactly the home you are looking for she also understands the market and knows how to navigate every part of buying and selling a home. Sheryl and her great office staff makes buying and selling a home seem flawless and very easy.
I would highly recommend Sheryl. She originally helped us find our first home back in 2012. We thought she was so terrific that we decided to use her again to sell our current home and find us our next home. She goes way above and beyond what any other realtor would do. She always responded back immediately to any questions we had, filled us in on everything and made sure we understood the next steps. She showed us many homes and never made us feel like we were inconviencing her. You can tell she truly loves her job and she is great at it! She helped us find our dream home yet again. Will definitely work with her again if we need to move.

We worked with Sheryl this summer to sell our house. She was wonderful and easy to work with through the whole process. We relocated out of state and had a quick closing date and Sheryl did a great job of managing the home sale despite the tight schedule and us being out of state. We never felt uncomfortable with how the home sale was going. She in particular went above and beyond to help us meet all the negotiation items (radon system, plumbing improvements, etc..) before a very short closing date. We highly recommend Sheryl.

We had a lot of real estate agents to choose from and we are so happy we decided to work with Sheryl and Bo. We were starting to feel a little hopeless that we would find the perfect house for us within our budget, but Sheryl and Bo were determined to find the right house for us and they did! There was an issue with the appraisal coming in low, so Sheryl did her research and wrote an excellent rebuttal to the appraiser and she was able to get the the appraisal increased so there weren't any issues with financing. Their communication was top notch - our calls, texts, and emails were always returned very quickly. We would highly recommend working with Sheryl and Bo!

Sheryl and Laura were awesome to work with in selling my home. They were ultra-communicative from the word go and provided some excellent tips in staging my townhouse for sale. Their market assessment was honest and well-thought out and the online presence they provided helped get the house sold right away. Thanks so much Sheryl!!!!

Sheryl asked me if I would write one or two sentences to recommend her...well it might be a paragraph. Sheryl is the best realtor ever! I bought a foreclosed townhouse which I love. But during the process the title company on the seller's side had major delays finding my title. Sheryl was so excellent, very experienced and always took the time to explain the technicalities to me, she was persistent in getting me my title, very nice and patient, incredibly intelligent and I had complete trust in her. And it paid off, a huge THANK YOU to Sheryl! I now am living in my dream house!
Sheryl has been able and willing to think far outside of the box for solutions and willing to do whatever is necessary to make the process seamless and profitable for me. As a partner of mine put it after Sheryl went above and beyond her role for the umpteenth time “now THAT is a full-service agent!!

Sheryl was a great realtor to work with. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and worked with us to promote and sell our home. She is easy to work with and also has a great team working with her. We highly recommend Sheryl to anyone looking to sell their home or her assistance in buying a new home. She definitely takes great care of her clients.

Sheryl Petrashek is awesome to work with. Her knowledge of the market and expertise is top notch. She is meticulous, she knows what the buyers are looking for, and she has an awesome team of professionals who work hard to get your house ready for sale. She is a natural in her field. When we first listed our south metro house and began the process of the looking for a house to buy in Minneapolis, we originally were going to find an different agent who might know the city better. After working with Sheryl for the short time, we had no doubt we wanted her to represent us on the buying side. Her knowledge of older homes from style to how sound the construction is (or the quality of the remodel) is very valuable to us. We are so glad we have her representing us.

Sheryl is an awesome realtor to work with. After having bad experience with another agent we were skeptical to trust any, but she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and we were forced to trust her and her judgments. Best quality about here is she is very proactive, in her absence assistant AMY does great job of keeping us up to date !!! Overall I will rate her 8 on 5 :-)

Sheryl has an amazing personality. She is always so happy and friendly. We really enjoyed working with her. When we went to meet her the first time we had no clue about the type of a house we wanted. We just said we want to buy a house. Then she explained to us that there are different styles of houses. She also showed us a map that covered all the areas we were interested in and the price range we liked. The first time we went to see houses she included different styles of houses so she could get an idea of what we liked. That visit taught us so much about houses. Then once we found what type of house we liked she found many more houses like that in so many areas. Thank you so much for finding us our dream home!
