Steve Norton
Norton Realty, Inc.
About Steve

Buying or selling a home is one of the most important personal decisions in one's life. People want more than a professional salesperson with their eye on a paycheck can provide. People want someone that is committed foremost to forming meaningful personal relationships. The kind of relationships that allow another to see things from your point of view, understand your wants and needs, and combine that knowledge with the professional expertise needed to be a staunch advocate of your home ownership goals. My approach is a simple one: work hard to connect with people, treat them with honesty and respect, and, most importantly, enjoy the process of getting to know them. Applying this motto to both my professional and personal life has resulted in a number of memorable and rewarding relationships. I am very proud of that, which in turn makes me very proud of the work that I do. I look forward to applying this same level of dedication for both buyers and sellers. In addition to being a licensed real estate broker, Steve is also an attorney admitted to practice law in the state and federal courts of Minnesota, as well as the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. He attended St. Thomas Academy, St. John's University, and William Mitchell College of Law. As a proud resident of Mendota Heights, Steve spent many years on the Planning Commission and was elected to the City Council in 2012.
