    I moved to Edina, MN last year and couldn’t be happier with the Edina Country Club neighborhood. The shopping and restaurants on 50th and France are so great and I can walk from my house down to the Lakes area of Minneapolis to run and bike. I worked with Ben Ganje from Sotheby’s International to buy my house and he as a great realtor. I don’t know anything about the other real estate agents mentioned.

    The homes in Edina are more expensive than the neighboring communities, however, the Edina School district is one of the best in the Twin Cities and I was willing to pay more to live in the district.

    I have lived in Edina my entire life and personally think it is one of the best communities in the Minneapolis area to live. The schools are awesome and the beautiful homes in the Country Club neighborhood can’t be matched. Southdale Mall and the Galleria offer some of the finest shops in the Midwest, all within the Edina community.
