Ostgarden moves to new realty office in DL

The Real Estate Company of Detroit Lakes has a new agent/broker.

Jude Ostgarden is joining the team with 27 of real estate experience under her belt.

Ostgarden, who is originally from Hinckley, Minn., moved to Detroit Lakes in 1985 working as a real estate agent.

She became a broker in 1999 and co-owned Lyon Realty as it merged with Coldwell Banker.

Ostgarden most recently worked with Dakota Properties and Cabela's property facilitating real estate deals for them.

She says she decided to make the move to the Real Estate Company of Detroit Lakes not only because the job fits better with her life, but because of its owners, Maureen Engel and Lynette Conmy.

"They really know what they're doing; they sell a lot of real estate -- they're a couple of the top realtors in the area here, and I' excited to join them because I bring a lot of experience also," said Ostgarden, "I think we've got a great location, so I just welcome everyone to stop in with any real estate questions."

Ostgarden will be working with the listing and selling of city, rural, residential, lake, land and commercial properties in and around the Detroit Lakes Area.

She lives on Cotton Lake and has three grown children and five grandchildren.
