21 Aug Eagan and Lakeville score high in the top 100 places to live….
Relocating to Minnesota? Consider living in Eagan or Lakeville, both were named in Money Magazine’s annual Best Places to Live for 2012.
Top 100 places to live. Eagan earned the number 14 slot with Lakeville coming in at number 19, they are both wonderful places to live indeed! We are proud to sell homes in Lakeville and Eagan and would love to show you around!
Eden Prairie, Woodbury and Maple Grove also ranked in the top 25 on the list of the top 100 places to live. I have watched Lakeville grow from a small, country town into a thriving, high-demand suburb. (Photo courtesy of City of Eagan)
I clearly remember driving to Lakeville with various buyers in the mid 1990’s, eager to show them homes. I often heard, “oh, Lakeville? We don’t want to go that far out.” or “Really, Lakeville? Are there even any houses for sale out there?”
Overnight the situation changed from having to drag clients out to Lakeville to view homes to fielding calls from excited clients who wish to see New Construction Homes in Lakeville. I think it was during 2001-2002 that I really saw such a dramatic change in homebuyer’s perceptions of Lakeville.
I love witnessing the growth of a city, or even a neighborhood. There is an energy and positive attitude tied up in an area of high-growth. Sometimes when I am out showing homes, I’ll pass a home which I helped a buyer purchase many years ago. I always remember how we stood on the land and envisioned their new home when all that was there was a pile of dirt!

One thing I found very interesting, 4 of the top 20 Best Places to Live are suburbs of the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Minnesota was the only state to have 4 Cities in the top 20, and 5 of the top 25! That conveys a very positive message about living in Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding areas!
