March 24, 2020 – Spring

Spring is coming at just the right time, providing a boost of energy as we are all dealing with the pandemic.  Bruce and I are operating from home for a while, but business continues as usual.  We expect that once the distancing restrictions are lifted that properties in areas such as our will be in demand, as people will want to get away from the city and spend time outdoors with family and friends. As always, feel free to reach out by phone or email to get an update on the market, ice conditions, happenings in our area or just to chat. The photo is from Sunday, March 22, showing the ice in Whitefish Bay at just under two feet thick. Stay safe and be well, Bruce and Jake

December 10, 2019 – Final Freeze up

I put together a quick video showing one of the last places to freeze up on Lake of the Woods. This is Whitefish Bay, the deepest part of the lake (over 200ft.) just west of Sioux Narrows. It was -20C at the time and completely froze over last night, December 9th. There are some additional photos below the video.

July 13, 2019 – Craig and Sheri

We have used Northwoods Realty for real estate transactions in the past. Our experience has been excellent which makes us very happy to use their services again. Jake produced excellent photos and video via drone to prepare our property for sale. When we had questions or needed input regarding preparing our property for the market, we got good answers. We had serious interest from one buyer late in 2018 and we were kept informed of their position. Even though financing did not work out, Jake and Bruce were still very positive about our prospects for a sale in 2019. When the second offer came in, we handled the paperwork online which was extremely beneficial since we live quite a distance from Sioux Narrows. We had plenty of conversations regarding the sale process which made us at ease, especially since the first offer fell through. We would recommend using Jake, Bruce and Northwoods Realty to others for their real estate needs - Craig and Sheri Olsen

Bruce was great to work with. We did a long distance sale of our property and he was able to bring it all together and have the closing go smoothly. I would definitely recommend Northwoods Realty - KS

June 19, 2019 – Blue Heron on Lake of the Woods

I was out on the lake this morning to take some property photos and was fortunate enough to spot this Blue Heron perched way up in a tall tree! Just another example of some of the wild beauty of Lake of the Woods.

Northwoods Realty Ltd. listed and sold our lake cabin as this past summer season was ending. Their professional website and excellent advice are two key traits that made this realty company the best choice we could have asked for. Their reputation in the Nestor Falls-Sioux Narrows area is excellent and we would recommend Bruce and Jake to anyone that either selling or buying a property in Lake of the Woods - Terry and Heather

October 5, 2018 – Randle and Virginia

After spending my summers for over seventy years on a beautiful Canadian lake, I was forced to sell my property due to my advanced age and the health of my wife. Although the sale was an emotional roller coaster for us Jake and Bruce Bennett were so patient, kind, caring, and competent that my wife and I were able to complete the transaction with the least amount of emotional stress possible. I would recommend their company, Northwoods Realty, to anyone seeking to buy or sell property in the Sioux Narrows area. I found the agency to be very professional, extremely competent, and a real pleasure to do business with under the circumstances. - Randle and Virginia Dennison, Chesterfield, MO
