Tonia Detweiler
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices North Properties - The Realty Lab
About Tonia

I was born and raised in a beautiful, quaint community in Northeast Ohio. Growing up with a farming lifestyle and a taste for history and culture has graced me with a strong work ethic and family focused. Both of which have helped me create a successful Real Estate career. After marrying the love of my life in 1990 back in Ohio, we decided to move to Monroe, Michigan. This move gave me the opportunity to start a fast paced career in the accounting department of a fortune 500 company. During this time I aided a project team in merging companies from around the USA and Canada into one Financial System. It was then that my love for helping people blossomed into my passions of today. After having 4 boys and moving a bit due to hubby’s career, we settled down in Delano, MN. Since 2007, we have been getting to know this area of the beautiful state of Minnesota. Needless to say, it has made an impression on me. I have worked endlessly to make sure that each and every one of my clients are treated with care and professionalism. I have a tenacious need to help people and this doesn’t end with my real estate career. If I’m not out showing, building, or listing homes, you will find me volunteering at the local charities, pulling tabs at the Legion, throwing axes in Victoria, watching movies at the local theater, hosting bible study, and even helping clients move and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I pride myself with the things I have learned over the years from my midwestern farm work ethics, to a supportive wife and cheerleader for more than 30 years, showering others with a mother’s love and the persistence of a dog mama. Learning from these things is what makes me love my job, I’ve learned what it is that makes this frigid state and its (MN nice) people great and use that to help you find what you need as a homeowner. I know that my education as a Realtor is ongoing, and so is my knowledge as a Minnesotan. I’m not just a Realtor but a wife, a mom, a community advocate, and reformed Ohioan into a true Minnesotan!
