North Star and the Quarantine

Thursday, March 26, 2020

Even though Wisconsin Governor Evers has declared that real estate and associated businesses are essential, North Star Realty has closed our office building. We will continue to be there doing business, but the door will be locked for your protection.
Our website will continue to be up to date, and we will continue to  connect with buyers and sellers by phone, email, or personally outside at the recommended safe distance.
We are so thankful for each of you and pray that you and your families and friends will continue to be in good health.
With caring thoughts,
Jason, Butch, and Lorel Gordon

Student gardeners

Thursday, June 6, 2019

On May 29 school children, grades 3-12, helped Russell and Alesandra Rolffs gather all the pruned branches of grape vines at the  gardens off Lake View Road. Plus they learned and helped with grafting and planting 40 blueberry plants. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn and participate in gardening practices.

Color Run

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

The  first color run of the year was hosted at the Mosling Rec Center. They held two successful runs last year. The first date was June 1 but the weather didn’t co-operate. It was moved to June 3 from 3:45 to 4:45. This event is a fun, non-timed, non-competitive time with lots of laughs and color. The color used is a safe powder.
