"Fast Growing Savage"

The city of Savage, which started as trading post and progressed to a railroad and lumber town, is now one of the fastest growing communities in Scott County. The city has a fascinating history which includes a crash landing by Charles Lindbergh before he became famous and the world renowned race horse, Dan Patch, who achieved a world’s record for the mile at the Minnesota State Fair in 1906 and held it for 54 years. The townspeople so loved the horse's owner, they named the city after him.

"Savage Real Estate"


Savage, Minnesota is an attractive and quiet suburb southwest of the Twin Cities. It is approximately twenty miles from downtown Minneapolis, which makes it a perfect location for those who work in the city, but prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle in their home and family life. If you are considering relocating to the Twin Cities, or are simply looking to gain a little distance from city life, Savage is a fantastic option.

One of the most attractive features of Savage is its wealth of natural resources, and its commitment to preserving them. Right off of the Minnesota River, Savage hosts the popular Eagle Creek. This creek is a popular spot for fisherman, with some of the best waters for brown trout in the area. Eagle Creek is also the home of Boiling Springs, a location where the water bubbles up, creating the illusion that it is boiling. According to Sioux legend, the springs produced a guiding spirit for the tribe; thus, the site is considered sacred. Savage’s Department of Natural Resources is extremely active and committed to preserving these areas amidst community development, and retaining the strong historical tradition. Certainly, many who live here are quick to name to natural beauty and riverfront recreation as an important factor in their appreciation of the city.

Savage is a friendly community, a place where neighbors know each others names, and a place where parents can feel safe with their children. The schools in the area are excellent, and with other suburbs such as Burnsville and Lakeville within striking distance, there is always plenty to do for entertainment without driving into the city.

While many of the people who move to Savage have a family, it is becoming an increasingly popular community for post-collegiate singles to purchase their first home. This area has many great homes to choose from, from spacious and comfortable single family homes, to sprawling multi-story homes. Furthermore, if you are more interested in building your dream home from the ground up, there are multiple lots of land for purchase with varying sizes to accommodate your individual needs. There are plenty of listings available at affordable prices, so if you are even considering buying a home, I strongly urge you to contact me to set up an appointment.
