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.
The city can generally be divided into two sections, the area north of County Highway 50 and the area south of Highway 50. The area to the north has been widely developed in the last 18 years, while the area to the south is generally known as “Downtown” and has had only two major developments in the last 20 years.
The third area of the city is the North-East Farmington/West Central Empire Township developments, with large areas of development in the recent 5 years.

Sheryl was very knowledgeable and took the time to listen to our needs with the sale of our home. She kept us informed of the current market and future trends that may have an impact on our sale. she took a lot of pressure off by keeping us always informed as we were not present for most of the process. I highly recommend Sheryl to anyone selling or purchasing of a home. If you listen to Sheryl's advice on staging your home and the current market you will have a very good chance of selling your home.
Bryan & Liz, Farmington
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.
Kelli & Tyler, Lakeville
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 :-)
Sushma & Arvind, Apple Valley
Sheryl is very knowledgeable and professional, who puts her clients first. She works for the best interest of her customers. She has assisted me to sell my house before and she just helped to buy a house recently. She takes time to listen to her clients and works hard to make sure she meets their expectations. There is no doubt, she is excellent and the best in what she does and I will recommend her a million times. With Sheryl you are in good hands. Thanks Sheryl
Sheryl is not just an agent, she is a teacher. She will help teach and guide you through the process of buying or selling a home so you can be confident that you are making the best decision for you and your family. Anyone can tell you WHAT to do. Very few can explain what factors to consider and WHY you should consider them.
Barry & Bethanie, Apple Valley
Sheryl is a true professional. Her knowledge, experience, patience, and professionalism were a true asset to my husband and I while we were searching to buy our home. Sheryl has a true passion for real estate and it shows when working with her. We felt that she had our best interest at hand and are VERY happy with the house that we purchased. I have told several friends/relatives about our experience with Sheryl and I would undoubtably recommend her to anyone.
Kathleen & Eric, Richfield
Sheryl is a true professional. She’s sold two homes of ours and helped with the purchase of a third. Her knowledge and experience allows her to manage any situation that may come up during the complicated process of buying and selling. We will definitely refer her to any friends or family in the future.
Corey & Angela, Bloomington
Sheryl was very knowledgeable. She was always quick with answers to questions and right on top of the whole process. I would recommend Sheryl to anyone needing a real estate agent.
I sold my house with Sheryl and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. I come from a business background and am skeptical of hiring other professionals unless I truly believe I will get the value from the high costs that come from Real Estate Agent fees. Sheryl and her team were absolutely worth the investment. Sheryl was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of selling the house and I was continually surprised and impressed by how "on top of things" her and her team were. Sheryl also does a great job utilizing online resources to help get traffic and attention to her listings. She brought in a professional photographer and Stager to the house to create great listings, and utilizes multiple forms of social media and real estate websites to create demand. Her and her team are very impressive!
Jaysin, Apple Valley
Sheryl is an excellent agent who supports her clients from start to finish. Her knowledge in the market is phenomenal and she gets houses sold. My experience with Sheryl has been such a relief to know that she is always looking out for you and doing what she can to make the selling process less stressful. I have had Sheryl help sell 2 houses now and she is on the top of my recommendation list for family and friends. Don't think I could have gotten through the process of selling our current house without her. A big Thank You to Sheryl!
Bud & Joan, Burnsville
What I really love about her is that she is so patient. We took my four month old baby and she actually looked after the baby until we looked around the houses. She explained the positives and negatives of each house. She is very honest and very open. We found our home within a month and we are extremely happy at our new place. It is everything we looked for and the best part is it is within our budget range. I’m so glad we went to her. She is friendly, caring, patient, honest and extremely good at her job!
Sheryl's expertise helped us every step of the way--from staging our home to the nitpicky details of the final documents. She really knows her market and the area, and all the tricks of the trade.
Jaye & Theo, Eagan
Sheryl is absolutely amazing when it comes to selling houses!!! She goes above and beyond to sell the house. The resources she uses is outstanding. Her drive and willingness to work with me, to sell and buy a new home was a great experience. I would recommend Sheryl and her team to anyone looking to get top dollar for their house from a realtor who really cares for her clients. You will not be disapointed when Sheryl is working for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Johnny, Elko New Market
Sheryl was far and above the best realtor we have ever worked with. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the many intricate nuances of the industry, but after 14 years in the industry she has formulated a marketing and distribution strategy that is unrivaled. We were extremely impressed with the amount of work she did right off the bat, and felt like we were her only client. The first buyers that walked through our house made an offer and Sheryl’s negotiation techniques brought us to within a few percentage points of our asking price. We can’t recommend her strongly enough and wish we could take her to Texas with us when we buy our next house! Thank you Sheryl – keep up the great work.
Steve & Danielle, Richfield
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.
During the past six months we sold two homes and purchased a new home with Sheryl's help. She provided prompt objective feedback at every step allowing us to achieve our goals and feel good about each transaction. Sheryl operates with great integrity. You never need to question whether she has your best interest in mind. We strongly recommend Sheryl for your realtor needs as she will support you well in every facet of the process.
Chris & Jessie, Maple Grove
We are a young couple buying our first home. We were a little bit apprehensive because this is one of the biggest purchases we will make in our life and we wanted to have things done right. We have heard of unpleasant stories of people having a hard time finding a good realtor but not with Sheryl. We found a house we really liked and you can easily be blinded by the excitement of purchasing your first home that you can overlook a couple of things. She was prompt to point out how great the house was but also some things that could potentially become an issue that we wouldn't have noticed otherwise.She recommended us our Mortgage officer who has been an absolute pleasure as well.Sheryl is very knowledgeable in everything real estate related and we wouldn't have had it any other way. When we buy our next house she will be the first one we will call for assistance again!
Richard & Erick, Farmington
Sheryl helped us sell both of our homes and also helped with the purchase of a new lot and construction of our new home. She was very helpful in taking us through all of these closings and represented us and our interests very well. She gave good advice and suggestions. I would recommend Sheryl for any of your real estate needs.
Sheryl and her husband Bo are truly experts in their field. It is their passion, and it shows. They spent a lot of time with us, helping us understand the purchasing process. They were very flexible and worked around our schedule. We looked at over 60 houses, and they were very patient with us. We could tell they really wanted to find the perfect place for us. We love our new house and couldn't have done it without them. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!
Todd & Stephanie, Burnsville
Sheryl is a very knowledgeable, professional, and personable agent. She is always well prepared, knows the market, and how to plan a successful sales strategy. She kept us well informed throughout the selling process and we felt comfortable calling her at any time if we did have a question – which wasn’t often! She and her staff were very organized and worked well together to make our home selling experience a quick and positive one. We have recommended her to several people, and will continue to do so. Thanks Sheryl!
Nancy & Matt, Apple Valley
Working with Sheryl and her team has been a pleasure. They were very patient as we took our time finding and listing our house. They know the market very well for both buying and selling. We appreciate the honest opinions and guidance provided by the team. They were very quick to respond to our 100’s of questions. If you want to sell your house fast and find your next dream home you cannot go wrong with Sheryl Petrashek and her team.
Chad & Gwen, Burnsville
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.
Jeff & Colleen, Burnsville
I had a wonderful experience with Sheryl. We are first time homebuyers and she and her husband Bo helped us through the whole process. I would highly recommend Sheryl to anybody who is looking for the best of the best!
Willie & Tiffaney, Farmington
Sheryl help us sell my mothers home and did an excellent job. I have never been responsible for selling a property and Sheryl was very helpful explaining all of the terms, documents and processes that were required. She and her team were very responsive when I had questions and they clearly explained what was needed. We needed to do some basic updating, slight wall repair, carpet and lighting. Sheryl put us in touch with a handyman who did excellent work and she went above and beyond her when she went to the store to help pick out the items with him. It turned out beautifully. Sheryl and her team are profession and knowledgeable. I would recommned Sheryl to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. I would definitely use her again in the future.
Sue & Tom, Shoreview
Sheryl has it all - not only did she have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience, she was very kind and patient, supporting me every step of the way.
Sindy & Matt, Mendota Heights
Sheryl was wonderful! Being first time home buyers and new to the area, she helped us and was so patient with our questions. She was so flexible and always available when we needed her. We would always brag to our friends that we had the best realtor ever!! We would recommend her to anyone whether it's your first or your tenth home!
Katie & Drew, Lakeville
Selling/buying a house can be very daunting. House buying is very different these days and takes a whole team to make all the details come together, they really know the industry and have excellent resources to make it happen. Sheryl and her team are the BEST!!! They made every step of the way a pleasure!!! Thanks to the Petrashek Team for all your hard work!!
Mary, Apple Valley
From professional pictures to creative ways of marketing a property, Sheryl knows what it takes to get a home sold. I will definitely be calling her again in the future.
Sheryl is very knowledgeable about real estate in general and really excels at getting your individual house sold. She was great at identifying exactly the type of buyer that would be looking at our house. From there she told us what updates to make – which ones would really be worth our time and money. She also had recommendations on who could do those updates. Sheryl is an exceptional realtor to work with, you will not be disappointed!
Jessica & Alex, Farmington
Sheryl and Bo are amazing to work with, they are both very knowledgeable and explain things thoroughly so as sellers/buyers, we always understood what was going on. They have worked so hard to get our house sold and get us matched with a perfect new home and I recommend them to everyone we know and we will absolutely work with them in the future!
Heather & Mike, Apple Valley
Selling my house with Sheryl has been a wonderful experience. She did an excellent job communicating the top things I could fix and touch up that would make my home the most appealing to any potential buyer. She was professional and thoughtful in every aspect from staging the home to our asking price. She was also very receptive my opinions and ideas. Throughout the process I was at ease that I was moving in the right direction and Sheryl was advocating for me. I have to say, Sheryl really shined when it came time to negotiate with the buyer on price and repairs. She had ideas and tactics that demonstrated her ability to 'think outside the box' and made it easy to offer something to the other party without feeling like we got the short end. It's also been a delight to work with Sheryl's team, everyone responds timely and respectfully and I've never felt uncomfortable asking any question. They've made the whole house selling process a breeze :)
Artena & Dana, Minneapolis
Sheryl is a wonderful realtor. So easy to work with because she is an EXPERT in real estate. She really knows the market. She walked us through every step in the process. This is the 3rd home we have sold and it was by far the best experience!
Peggy & Kirk, Burnsville
Sheryl's market research was developed into a very effective marketing strategy for the sale of our house. The combination of solid research and excellent communication skills resulted in good decisions during the sales process. Finally, Sheryl's recent sales performance in a challenging sales environment reflects her tireless work ethic and is the definitive reason to recommend Sheryl to any client.
John, Apple Valley
Sheryl has helped us get our home ready for the market place. She gives great advice and has wonderful marketing ideas. I’m using her as my agent for finding my next home. She is a great listener and is very accommodating to my schedule.
Although I was inundated with mail from realtors trying to convince me that they were the right choice for me, I was most impressed with the continuing market statistics that I received from Sheryl Petrashek. Trying to market a home long distance (I had moved out-of-state) I knew was going to be difficult. Once I talked to Sheryl however, I felt much relieved. It seemed like it was not only possible, but it could be done with out a lot of pain and anguish on my part. Sheryl came through 110% every day! She was better than her word! She kept me constantly updated and as we made strategic decisions together, it confirmed my opinion of her, she is a professional. I would have missed out on selling my house at this time if I had not chosen Sheryl.
Sheryl is a great realtor. She had great resources and go to people for project work. I appreciate her marketing approach. Her website was great. The photos of the house were done nicely. She was willing to help us with anything we need and explained the sales process well.
Beth, Apple Valley
Sheryl became my listing agent when a previous agent and I agreed to "part ways" after 3 months. After interviewing 7+ agents, I decided to engage Sheryl and her team in the sale of my home. The data driven process her team employs, the technology driven marketing approach and her knowledge of how the twin cities market was shifting/changing, were the decision points for me to engage Sheryl. Other agents I interviewed talked about their marketing approaches and use of technology. Sheryl's team delivers the cutting edge approach that worked. I saw the results of all of those decision points with the quick sale and closing of my property. Would I use Sheryl and her team again? Absolutely. Would I recommend Sheryl and her team to others? Without hesitation.
Working with Sheryl and her entire team has been a wonderful experience. We are so thankful for their knowledge, experience and willingness to help. It is clear that Sheryl loves what she does and she does it well! Sheryl was highly recommended to us and we will be happy to recommend her to our family and friends.
BreAne & Josh, Farmington
Sheryl and I have crossed paths several times over the years. We have worked on numerous transactions & they have all gone very smoothly. Her expertise in new construction made the process so easy & seamless. She is professional, honest & likeable. It's no surprise that a good portion of her business is repeat customers & referrals. I highly recommend Sheryl!
Jon Wagner, Lakeville
Sheryl sold our home after the market crash. She was professional, enthusiastic, and, most importantly, knowledgeable. She was able to explain the intricacies of the offer and counter offer, the inspection, the bank's opinions. She knew my neighborhood, and had actually sold homes there before selling mine. She goes above and beyond in every area. I even recommended her to my cousin when she sold her lake property. I only have good things to say about Sheryl.
Gordon & Amanda, Savage
I was introduced to Sheryl a couple years ago when we purchased a new home. I am very impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and work ethic and I have recommended her to many friends. Sheryl always has a strong grasp of current market conditions and will take the time to share her knowledge and guide you through the buying/selling process.
Lauren & James, Apple Valley
I have worked with at least a dozen realtors over as many years in MN and none has shown the marketing acumen that Sheryl and her team applied to the sale of our townhome. I feel like I have received white glove service. Sheryl must have been developing her marketing strategies for some time. They report regularly on competition in the area so that I can stay informed and are not shy about telling me what I need to do to actually sell. Most importantly, they don't just rely on the internet or street sign to sell the property. They use their analytical capability to review data from the MLS and elsewhere and tailor postcard mailings and email campaigns to the most likely buyer (in my case it was reverse prospecting people who had...) My past brokers have done ok - they made sales - sometimes very good sales - but I felt like it had very little relation to their marketing capability (several of these are good friends now, in spite of my experience) Sheryl and her team earn their fee through intelligent and aggressive salesman(woman)ship.
The Petrashek Team was great. Very organized and excellent about keeping us informed. This was the first opportunity to work with Bo and he too was spot on about his recommendations. He gave us sound advise on different aspects of each property we chose to review. When we put our house on the market, Sheryl was excellent at what we should ask and what we should expect to receive. She was right on the money. I'm so glad we partnered with this team again. I hope to be in this house a long time, but if anything should change, I would only call on Sheryl Petrashek for the outstanding results we have received.
Rebecca & Alan, Woodbury
Sheryl Petrashek is a top notch Real Estate Agent! She made the entire selling process go very smoothly and when things didn't make sense Sheryl was always there to explain and she made me feel very comfortable through the process. She knows the business very well! I will be recommending Sheryl to friends and family!
Kris, Apple Valley
Sheryl was a true professional helping me sell my home in a fast and efficient manner. I had an offer within 10 days of listing my home and sold at the price that I wanted. In particular, she spent a great deal of time upfront helping me understand the market and getting my home ready to put on the market. She always responded back within hours and is one of the hardest working real estate agents you'll ever find.
Sheryl Petrashek is an amazing Realtor to have representing you. Sheryl not only helped us sell our home by working with us to create cost effective ways to maximize the value of our home. But she also helped us build our dream home. With the expected hiccups in a build, Sheryl helped keep the builder moving forward on our behalf and helped keep us focused on the end goal of our new home. I would strongly recommend Sheryl Petrashek as she will work so hard to help you sell your house and/or find your next home.
Kyle & Katie, Lakeville
Sheryl is the definition of a professional realtor. She loves what she does for a living and it is evident in every phase of the buying or selling process. When we sold our home with Sheryl, she did a very extensive market analysis, provided input on how to ready our home for sale and communicated feedback each time we had a showing. When we had to make a price adjustment while selling, Sheryl provided hard data as to why that was necessary. Sheryl is a wonderful communicator and knows the business inside and out. I recommend her without reservation for any real estate needs.
Maria & John, Apple Valley
A friend told me about Sheryl after I asked him to help me find an agent who can help sell my home. I worked with another agent before her, but got no result. Sheryl came in, gave me a professional assessment of what ‘s needed to market my home successfully. Her and her highly motivated support staff got involved and listed my home in every medium available. Sheryl made frequent follow-up with agents showing my home, and routinely adjusted her marketing strategy to move the house. At the end I got competing offers. Sheryl total involvement along the way was priceless, therefore I highly recommend her and her tireless team to anyone who is looking to sell their home.
Victor, Mendota Heights
We tried selling our house by owner first, then after 40 stressful days, I called Sheryl. We've known her reputation and felt it would be smart to connect with her and see what she brings to the table. The first thing she suggested was raising our price, take new pictures, stage the house and a few other things. As soon as she left, we knew we were in the hands of a true professional. Sheryl's extensive marketing and local connections soon found an offer after just 5 days back on the market. She managed this transaction with the highest level of professionalism and kept the stress down, always looking out for our best interest. If you want to work with the best in the business, call Sheryl!
Brian & Traci, Lakeville
We selected Sheryl over two other highly recommended Realtors and she was the perfect fit to sell our home. We had an unusually complicated assignment and the depth of Sheryl’s experience and attention to detail was outstanding. She genuinely cared about our best interests and provided a level service that is beyond what we have found with other Realtors. We would recommend her to anyone considering the sale of their home, especially in the Twin Cities South metro. Tony and Jennifer, Inver Grove Heights.
