Burnsville Two Story for Sale!
Learn about this Burnsville Two Story at 12940 2nd Avenue, Burnsville, from the current owners. “We have been blessed to live in this home for so many years, and we’ll miss it very much,” confided the Seller as we talked last week. This home is unique because of the Large Foundation size allowing for a Formal Living Room, Formal Dining Room, Family Room and 4 Season Porch along with Kitchen and Dinette. It’s rare to find a home with so many nicely sized rooms, all on the main floor in this price range.
“I remember when we first looked at the home while we were shopping for a place to raise our family. I liked the inside, but when I got to the backyard with the big trees, deck, mature trees and awesome play structure for the kids, that’s when I fell in LOVE with it!”
The location offers easy commuter access to 35W and it’s really close to the Burnsville Transit Station where you can park and ride on the bus directly downtown. It can be so productive to use the commute time to check the news, read email or catch up with friends on facebook on your smart phone, all while someone else does the driving of course!
The ‘Walkability Score’ for this home is 40, Burnsville’s Heart of the City project is nearly complete and now there is so much within walking distance from the home. You can walk to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and the Performing Arts Center.
Moving from this Burnsville Two Story will be tough, “We will miss this friendly neighborhood, the good schools which are close by and, maybe most of all, the awesome backyard!” Over the years the Sellers have made many improvements and updates to the home including new flooring, light fixtures, countertops, landscaping, fire pit plus a new driveway and garage floor! The home also boasts newer mechanical systems, fresh exterior and interior paint, a large pantry/mudroom area, plus a private Owner’s Suite bath. The lower level offers great play space and opportunities for future expansion.
When asked what additional information a buyer should consider, the homeowners assured me, “the home is in a very family friendly neighborhood with nearby parks and great shopping, we have great common spaces on the main floor, plus the house has extra play space in the basement, we hope they love it as much as we have!” I would add the home is nicely maintained and always so very clean.

Sheryl was fantastic! She helped us find a home that fit us perfectly! She was wonderful to work with and her passion for helping people find their home shines through! She made our move to the twin cities area very easy and comfortable!
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.
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.
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!!
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 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.
Working with Sheryl has been great. She's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying and selling process and is able to give expert advice. She and her staff are very organized and do a wonderful job of keeping us informed of all the moving parts. We appreciate the work of Sheryl and all the others who have helped us with this process."
It was a pleasure working with Sheryl in the recent sale of my home. She is so knowledgeable of so many aspects of real estate including markets and home construction. Her people skills and ethics are impeccable. I would highly recommend her as your realtor.
This is my fourth transaction with Sheryl Petrashek and her team (one sale, three purchases), and I must say, I've never had a realtor work as hard for me as Sheryl does!! She consistently bends over backwards to meet my needs and makes me feel as if I'm her only client. A special shoutout also to her assistant, Laura, who seamlessly handles the paperwork and communications end of each transaction. She's the wizard behind the curtain, and together, they have developed a well-oiled machine that never fails. No matter where I go in Minnesota, I am Team Petrashek for life!!
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!
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
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.
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 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 has been great. She's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying and selling process and is able to give expert advise. She and her staff are very organized and do a wonderful job of keeping us informed of all the moving parts. We appreciate the work of Sheryl and all the others who have helped us with this process.
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.
Sheryl Petrashek has sold 2 homes for me in the past year. The first one sold, with multiple offers, in 2 days. The second one sold, with multiple offers, in 3 days. I now live in TX and being able to handle all this long-distance was very important. Everything went exactly as it should both times. I have 3 more MN homes I will sell in the future. I will sell them through Sheryl.
This is my second time working with Sheryl and her team. She makes the process of buying and selling your home so easy! Always keeps you informed and gives great advice! Very patient with whatever questions or concerns that I had. Made the home selling process a breeze! I will definitely use her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home.
We really enjoyed working with you. Thanks for always being so fun and flexible! You are a great realtor, you made the process fun and easy. Thanks a lot Sheryl!
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 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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Sheryl did a great job selling our home, took only 14 days to get a purchase agreement. Communicated excellently between buyer and seller. She's very experienced and has seen it all. Highly recommend Sheryl, AAA+.
First off I'd just like to address that when you hire Sheryl, its not just her your getting. Its her, her husband and their awesome team. In todays competitive market, it was a REAL eye opener seeing the importance of having a FULL TIME Realtor vs. the part time weekend warrior who does real estate as a side job. Sheryl's experience and guidance, with out a doubt, got us into the house we dreamed of. My wife and I learned SO MUCH the first time out about what to look for, what to expect. She and her husband really do have YOUR best interest in mind. They take pride in getting their clients nothing but THE BEST! Again I cant stress enough the importance of a power couple like these 2 working for you. I always heard how stressful home buying could be. And it was without a doubt. But I feel it could have been a lot more painful if we had gone with someone else.
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!
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's 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.
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 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.
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!
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!
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 :-)
Very experienced best choice ever! Great advice on getting house ready for sale. She has many maintenance contacts that made fixing up the house fast and easy!
Highly recommend Sheryl as a realtor. Last summer she sold our house quickly and for the past 9 months has been invaluable to us (and patient) as we were looking for our next home. Her knowledge of the market, house construction, and overall expertise is 2nd to none. We couldn't have found a better realtor or person to work with us this past year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Brian and I chose to work with Sheryl because of the wonderful experience we had with her when we purchased our current home. Sheryl guided us through every aspect of selling our current home and buying our new home. She gave us advice on staging our home and responded to our questions quickly. Overall, we had a wonderful experience working with Sheryl.
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!
I am proud to not only call Sheryl Petrashek my agent, but now also a friend. I remember the day we met to talk through the details of selling my home. Sheryl knew I was a bit emotional about moving but also helped me keep the end goal in perspective throughout the process. The way that she is connected in the area, understands the market and knows how to navigate every part of the selling and buying process is impressive. She listened to my situation, what my kids I were looking for in my new house and then helped me find it. Sheryl’s approach to explaining the process and helping me think through next steps couldn’t have been more spot on. From start to finish Sheryl has always considered what’s best for my family and I and for that I am truly grateful!
Sheryl and her team are the ONLY people I would recommend for buying or selling a house! Sheryl takes the time to get to know you and listens to what your needs and desires are to help find the perfect house for you in your budget. She is very conscientious and wants the best for her clients. Everyone on her team is kind and helpful. You can expect replies back in a quick and orderly fashion. It's very obvious they know what they are doing and their experience pays off. This has been an incredibly easy and low stress process, from finding the right house to getting all of the paperwork done with minimal effort on my part to walking me through every single step of this daunting process. I'm so thankful for everything they've done and I know I couldn't have done this as easily without them.
We are very happy we chose to work with Sheryl and her team to sell our home in Burnsville. Sheryl and her assistant, Amy, are very professional. All our questions were answered quickly in a way that was easy to understand. Sheryl sent in a professional to help us stage our home to look the best that it could for showings. She hired a professional photographer to take lots of amazing pictures of our home. Sheryl's networking skills are superb. We definitely will recommend Sheryl and her team to our friends and family.
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 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!!
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!
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.
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!
