Hello, my name is Rhonda Leagjeld. I have the great privilege of working with the team at Neighborhood Realty in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. Buying my first home in Eagle Bend was a completely new experience for me and it was a lot more intense than I had ever imagined. That sparked my interest for working with buyers, just like I used to be, by educating and guiding them through this process. I am passionate about marketing and finding new, creative ways to advertise real estate. My goal is to make sure your real estate transaction is a complete success with hard work and communication.

I grew up on a small dairy farm by Eagle Bend, MN. After high school, I attended Minnesota State Community and Technical College at Fergus Falls, then St. Cloud State University where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree.
