March 23, 2017 – Spring is here, but so is the ice.
Spring has arrived but there is a still a lot of ice on the lake. With no snow cover on the ice and cold temperatures for the last month, the ice has been getting thicker. Too early to predict, but likely looking at a late April or early May ice out this year. The Lake of the Woods Ice Patrol is back for 2017, check out this website for amazing photos of the ice breakup. Jake caught this nice Lake Trout in mid-February just out from the Sioux Narrows Bridge. Give us a call if you think you will be selling or buying this year, we are looking forward to another busy season.

Buying our cottage through Northwoods Realty was such a pleasant experience due to the professionalism, knowledge, and courtesy in every interaction we had with Bruce and Jake. Right from our first contact with Bruce, he responded to our questions promptly and walked us through the entire purchase process with a confident ease. Through our interactions with Bruce, he made us feel welcomed into his community before our purchase was even completed. We appreciated the professionalism and accessibility of the Northwoods Realty website. The photos and videos as well as the technology used in signing documents, all made the purchase go so smoothly. We would not hesitate in recommending Northwoods to anyone. Although we understand this is their business, we feel that it is their genuine kindness and knowledge of their area that makes them exceptional at what they do and exceeded our expectations.working
December 13, 2016 – Crow Lake
Crow Lake is just about ready to freeze over, if only the wind would lay down. The steam was really rolling off the open water.

Great Service. After years of searching we finally found the island that we were looking for. Jake and Bruce were helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable and most of all fast, they got back to us with answers to every question we had. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a honest, reliable realtor.working
March 15, 2016 – First drone flight and an early spring
I flew our new drone for the first time over the weekend and was able to get some great photos and videos of our island listing in Nestor Falls. Spring is coming early this year as you can see in the photos of Nestor Falls, Sioux Narrows and Crow lake from yesterday.

My husband and I want to thank Bruce and Jake from Northwood’s Realty for being patient in our house buying process. We had a lot of ups and downs but Bruce stayed in contact with me all year regarding the house we wanted to buy. Once we knew our house was sold, Bruce helped us in purchasing a country home with all the amenities we were looking for in a quiet area that’s perfect for our young family of 5. We absolutely love where we live now and are grateful for all the help we received from Northwood’s Realty. Thanks for everything.working

Bruce, Kathy and I want to thank you for your assistance in listing and selling our cottage in Sioux Narrows. We were a little apprehensive in the process due to living 900 miles away, but could not be happier with the service and attention to detail that you and Jake provided. We were impressed with the marketing of the home including the high-quality photos and video. We also appreciated the timely communication while negotiating the sale. Selling the family cottage was an emotional event for us and we appreciated the ease with which transaction was conducted. If ever we look to purchase again at Lake of the Woods our first call will be to you! Thanks Again,working
