The city of Savage is situated on the south bank of the Minnesota River in a region commonly referred to as South of the River, comprising the southern portion of Minneapolis-St. Paul, the sixteenth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Savage is approximately 20 miles from downtown Minneapolis and 25 miles from downtown St. Paul.
The landing point for Irish and Scottish immigrants in 1800, Savage has grown into a developing bedroom community, absorbing population growth from Burnsville, its larger neighbor to the east. Once a shipbuilding port for the U.S. Navy, Savage is now an industrial manufacturing job center in the southern metro.

Previously named Hamilton after the city in Ontario, Canada, the town was renamed Savage after Marion Willis Savage who owned and trained the nationally celebrated racing horse Dan Patch.
In the summer of 1923, an obscure pilot named Charles Lindbergh was in route from southern Minnesota to see his father campaigning in Shakopee. But as the 21-year-old Lindbergh approached his landing site, he encountered a thunderstorm so severe he was unable to descend. He continued on until engine failure forced him to land in a swampy area near Savage. Four years later, Savage’s unexpected guest made world history by completing the first nonstop transatlantic flight from New York to Paris.
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
From the moment we met Sheryl, we liked her. She has a personality that sets you at ease and a professionalism and knowledge that give you loads of confidence in her guidance. Our home values had been negatively impacted by neighborhood foreclosures and lack of comps, but Sheryl put her real estate expertise to use and was able to market our home in such an amazing way that we were able to sell our home for much more than we had hoped! (We had two offers in four days– one for asking price and one for more than asking!) I might also add that we were out of town for much of the time due to a work relocation, and Sheryl kept a close eye on all of the details in our absence and made sure everything ran smoothly. We would definitely recommend Sheryl Petrashek for any of your real estate needs. She is the complete package– friendly, professional, knowledgable, and detail oriented.
Reed & Shelley, Burnsville
This is my second time working with Sheryl and she was every bit as thorough and knowledgable as she was when I worked with her the first time in 2006. It’s clear she really knows the process and had everything covered before anything ever occurred to me to ask her about. I’ll definitely look her up the next time I need anything handled in the realm of real estate, and certainly I’ll refer people I know to her as well!
Sheryl is a fantastic realtor. She always vey helpful at trying to find the perfect house you have in mind and then she will go the extra mile to make sure you get that perfect home. I have had the opportunity to work with Sheryl several times and each time I have been completely satisfied. This last home we bought required a lot of time and Sheryl was always great at keeping us informed of how things were coming along and explaining why it was taking so long. I always had lots of questions and Sheryl always knew the answer. Thanks Sheryl....you are the best!!! I will always recommend you to everyone that is going to be either purchasing or selling a home.
Charlotte & Tesfaye, Rosemount
Sheryl has been everything I would have hoped in a realtor when we decided to buy our home. She came highly recommended from a co-worker, and I can definitely see why. Even though I am sure Sheryl has numerous clients she is working with, she always makes me feel like I am her only client. She worked day and night to help my husband and I find the perfect home, and we did! And even after that, she checked in with us to make sure we didn’t have any questions and we knew what the next steps would be. I cannot say enough how much easier our home buying process was because she was our realtor. She gets two huge thumbs up!
Nicole & Matt, Lakeville
I could not have been more impressed with Sheryl (and also her husband Bo). This duo was super helpful, not only with their knowledge of the area, schools, and neighborhoods; but also with being able to understand our taste and lead us to the perfect home and community! They are by far the best experience we have had with a realtor. They were patient, responsive, always flexible and available, but most importantly they were a lot of fun to work with.
Aaron & Melissa, Northfield
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
Sheryl Petrashek has been our realtor for many years. She has helped us with several real estate transactions, both buying and selling. Sheryl is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and very professional. We would highly recommend her to everyone. She and her wonderful team have gone above and beyond to ensure a very smooth process with each of our real estate transactions.
Crystal & Dave, Blaine
She was communicative, efficient and worked very hard to help us sell our home! Our townhouse sold faster than we thought and we got what we wanted for it. She was very helpful!!
Tom & Jenna, Carver
Sheryl and her team helped us sell a difficult piece of property, a condominium we owned for quite awhile. They were wonderful! Her team handled the complicated sale extremely well! They were always responsive and thoughtful. Sheryl especially, helped walk us through the process and always communicated what the next steps would be so we could stay prepared. I really felt that they put our needs first and they did it with a smile. Even though they were busy, we always felt like we were their only clients. Sheryl was the perfect Realtor to sell our home. We will definitely use her again for our future real estate needs and we would recommend everyone we know to her and her team.
Mike & Missy, Apple Valley
We have used Sheryl to sell and buy two homes in the last 15 years and have found her to be the ultimate professional. From tips on preparing our home right down to negotiating a PA. She was always a phone call away. We have also referred her to two different family members over the years and would not hesitate to refer her again.
Warren & Sharyl, Chaska
I had a great experience with Sheryl and her entire team. She was available for questions anytime I had them and was flexible in scheduling time to view properties. I'd highly recommend her to anyone else I know that is purchasing a home as her knowledge and expertise made my home buying experience fun, exciting and most of all, painless. Aaron, Maple Grove
Aaron, Maple Grove
My fiancé and I had a great experience working with Sheryl! We started out looking at used houses in the Apple Valley, Eagan, Lakeville area and eventually settled on purchasing a new house in Lakeville. Her wide breadth of knowledge for both used and new houses really helped us feel comfortable in the decisions that we were making. She was always available for questions and was exceptionally helpful in helping us through a miscommunication that came up with the developer and the city. We highly recommend Sheryl as a realtor!
Anthony & Kate, Lakeville
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.
Sheryl leveraged her strong knowledge of the real estate marketplace and her negotiation skills to obtain a lucrative price for the home we recently sold and assist us in the purchase of our new home. She took care to ensure that all aspects of the sale and purchase processes kept progressing on a timely basis and handled obstacles skillfully to support our best interest. I would highly recommend Sheryl’s services to anyone and everyone in need of a professional who gets the job done!
Cathy & Mike, Minneapolis
Sheryl is a very caring agent.She will do everything she can to help you. She also found us a home. She is the best you can find. Thanks for everything. By the way Bo is great too.
Dave & Marcy, Apple Valley
Sheryl - You represent the essence of what we feel a realtor should be. Your commitment to the sale of our home was always present as we felt completely assured that everything was under control. Your knowledge in the market and explanations to our questions were always communicated in a prompt response weather it was directly from you or one of your assistants in your office. Thank you for making us feel as though we were your only client even though we were aware of how perpetually busy you were. We have and will continue to recommend you to everyone we know!! Blessings!
Randy & Barb, Burnsville
I recently sold my home and used Sheryl and her team as my realtor. Before the transaction was even complete I was already recommending her to my family and friends. She has such a broad understanding of the market and has a passion for what she does. I really appreciated the one on one time she spent with me to explain the market conditions, my home’s value and all of the options available to me. Sheryl is my realtor for life!
This was our second house with Sheryl, she's done a fantastic job both times. She and Bo are very knowledgeable about the sale and purchase of homes. We will definitely be using them again for the third house! Thanks again Bo and Sheryl!
Mike & Heather, Spring Lake Park
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 and Bo are a great team and put together an outstanding marketing plan for our home. The result was seven showings and multiple offers in three days on the market and a sale for more than our asking price. The follow through on the details has been outstanding. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great agent.
Todd & Nancy, Burnsville
Sheryl has been great throughout the entire process of finding and negotiating the purchase of our new home. We feel as though we have always been her top priority. Her responsiveness to our questions and concerns and her dedication to our project has been outstanding. Her knowledge of the local area and the constructions methods and terminology is impressive beyond compare. She has made the entire experience very pleasant and painless. We will highly recommend her to anyone planning to buy a home.
Greg and Cheryl, Farmington
Sheryl was referred to us for our unique home buying experience. Her understanding our of needs ensured that our initial property purchase would ultimately allow us to fulfill on our home building goals. Sheryl market knowledge with property visits were always spot on and informative. She always had her information prepared and outlined to provide the best options a property had to offer. Sheryl's candor navigating those options was very much appreciated, as she always kept our long term goals in site. Sheryl is an "all-in" agent. She will ensure that your expectations - start to finish - will be met, and that your home buying experience will be a pleasant one!
Jamie & Curt, Bloomington
Sheryl is absolutely wonderful! In this economy I thought selling our home would be next to impossible but Sheryl made it so easy! Sheryl will go that extra mile for you. She is extremely knowledgeable and offered great advice and recommendations to get our home ready for showings. She is not only very professional but very likeable and friendly. I highly recommend Sheryl and look forward to working with her to buy my next home!
Sheryl has been a godsend to us in the last few months. Not only has she helped us sell our old home in LESS THAN A WEEK, she is also helping us in the process of building our new home. Sheryl is everything you want in a realtor: personable, knowledgeable, honest, a great communicator and she has great integrity. She hasn't just been our realtor but she's also become a friend; it says a lot when you look forward to meetings and conversations with your realtor! If you want someone you can trust who will also make the process fun you need Sheryl!
Greg & Ashley, Farmington
I would like to THANK YOU for working with me to sell my property. Being in a different state, I thought that it might be a bit tough for me to sell my property but you always went that extra mile to ensure that things were taken care of. You gained my trust from fixing minor repairs to working with renters for showings when needed. I appreciate with the service you provided to sell my property and am definitely glad that it was done without me having to feel like I needed to fly out to do anything.
Hard worker doesn't even begin to describe Sheryl's drive to go above and beyond the call of duty. She is extremely knowledgeable and without a doubt has her client's best interest in mind. Would choose her again and again and would highly recommend!!
Sheryl and her team are fantastic. They were there every step of the way for us. We sold our house in 4 days for the asking price. We would recommend Sheryl to anyone.
Tom & Brigitta, Burnsville
Sheryl is in the process of helping us to prepare and understand the current market. Her knowledge of the real estate trends and in depth analysis allows us to maximize the sale of our home. Along with her being patient, helpful, enthusiastic and the most understanding person to work with! We look forward on working with her!!
Cathy & Don, Apple Valley
I am so glad I got to work with Sheryl and Remax Results. Sheryl was open, totally flexible to my schedule, and very good at keeping me updated and informed about homes available. After helping me finally find the perfect place the entire team did a great job of guiding me through the process and preparing me for an easy and successful closing. Honestly, I don’t think finding and buying a home has ever been easier. Thanks
It was so nice to work with good people like the Petrashek family. From our first contact, their understanding, patience and promptness in answering our many questions was so appreciated. This was our first experience in selling a home and the Petrashek's made it a very satisfying experience. We will recommend them to all our Minnesota friends.
Tugomir & Rebecca, Colorado
Sheryl and Bo went above and beyond expectation with ideas, personal attention and services for enhancing my buying experience on both the buying and selling side of the equation. They were organized, professional and set expectations that ultimately proved to be spot on.
Mike, Apple Valley
Sheryl is very knowledgable . Keeps up with market trends and advises you accordingly. Easy to work with. Does a great job working with you to get your house ready to place on market. Answers phone calls promptly and calls you on the progress of the sale.
Wonderful experience and a great realtor with no pressure sales! Always willing to make things happen!
Sheryl worked with my husband and me to sell our house at a difficult location. Sheryl tried many approaches and we successfully sold our house. I really feel it was because of Sheryl's thorough and consistant effort with showings, open houses, and marketing that made the difference. Sheryl is a great agent and partner in this process. She also helped us find our next home!
Rebecca & Alan, West Saint Paul
We had our townhouse on the market for over 7 months with another realtor and had no offers. Sheryl was recommended to us by a friend, so we decided to switch and give her a try. Within two weeks of working with Sheryl, we had an offer and sold our townhouse. She also found us a wonderful new home to purchase. Sheryl and her team made the whole process seamless and effort free. If you want great results, Sheryl is the realtor for you. Thank you!
Michelle & Matt, Apple Valley
After accepting a promotional opportunity in another state, I had no choice but to put my house on the market during the late fall which was by no means ideal. With very few people looking to buy during that time, you can imagine my angst. Sheryl however kept us very informed along the way telling not to panic and gave me great advice on when I should slightly drop the price a bit or when to hold tight. During the winter months when I was no longer in my home, she also made sure to physically check out my house each week to be sure the furnace was still working and no pipes issues. Another huge weight off my shoulders. She also knows her stuff in regards to marketing. She literally spent one afternoon helping me arrange my furniture to make sure my house photographed well for the online photos. She also uses a professional photographer, so the pictures were great!
Sheryl was such a joy to work with when selling our first home! She made the process very smooth and my husband and I knew we could trust her with every detail. She was upfront and honest so we had very real expectations when listing our home. She exceeds the competitors in marketing and knowledge of the market. We always knew Sheryl was on our side and in every situation she represented us with integrity and professionalism. We would refer all of our family and friends to her and we will definitely be customers of hers again. We had an offer on our home in 3 days and sold our home more quickly than we imagined! Sheryl and her team are wonderful!
Amy, Apple Valley
Sheryl was very instrumental in both the purchase of our new home and sale of our old home at the price(s) we wanted. She is very knowledgeable about properties and their values. Whenever I needed to talk to her she would always respond. Not only is she a great Realtor but a better person you won't find. You won't regret having Sheryl as your listing agent. She gets thing done.
Tom & Darlene, Lakeville
Amazing Agent that worked very hard to get me the condo I wanted at a great price :) Would definitely recommend Sheryl Petrashek and her team!
We are very happy that we could meet high experienced professional when we started searching of our new / first home. We are property virgins and when we met Sheryl we had a lot of questions and worries. Sheryl could provide us the best support and help. She was keeping under strong control every step of our deal. She gave us all necessary information and documents in time and without delay. We received a real support from Sheryl when we had to arrange an international money transfer and we can say that this step of our deal has been done in accordance with all regulations and without problems. We want to tell Sheryl thank you so much because we’ve got a high quality service from her personally and from her team. We had a strong feeling that we were a VIP customer when we were working with Sheryl.
Igor & Ana, Eden Prairie
Sheryl Petrashek listed two condo properties for us. We found Sheryl to be a professional who used her strong marketing, communication, and reporting skills to sell our properties. However, what really separated Sheryl from the rest was her willingness to do whatever task was necessary to make the deal happen. She truly exhibits a “can do” attitude, and she takes the “full service realtor” concept to an entirely new level.
We went thru much effort to find a realtor that provided a real value added to the process. The recommendation from Greg Bjorkland led to us interviewing you. We were very impressed by the type and degree of analysis done to determine the market for our home; for the multiple channels to the marketplace that you used; your team approach that covered all the time sensitive bases needed to get us to closing; and probably most of all; your really profound ability and insight in analyzing and handling sensitive issues and negotiations. Barb & I found ourselves saying about 6 different times throughout this experience how incredibly grateful we were that we had Sheryl on the job. And I don't hesitate to say that I've never said that about any realtor before. Thank you again!
Rick & Barb, Rosemount
I first met Sheryl in 2006 when we sold our first home. She impressed me immediately. She’s knowledgeable, experienced and savvy in real estate. Sheryl calmly explains the process because it can be overwhelming and stressful, at least for me. Her “customer service level” is understanding as she returns calls or emails in a timely manner or her “team” does. My husband and I would give Sheryl Petrashek and 5 star A+ rating and would recommend her without hesitation. I have given my entire family her name for their future real estate needs! THANK YOU SHERYL FOR EVERYTHING!
Karen & Bruce, Eagan
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!
Carl & Becky, Chaska
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!!!!
Tom, Prior Lake
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!!
Paul, Apple Valley
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 can't say enough about Sheryl and her services. I'm completely impressed and satisfied with the handling of the sale of my home. Sheryl's honesty and integrity shines through from the beginning to the end of the process of selling my home. She did a fantastic job marketing my home and delivered exactly what I wanted/needed to sell my condo. Sheryl and her office made selling flawless and very easy.
