For 65 years, PARK CO., REALTORS® has made our clients top priority. Our goal is to take care of our clients, not only during the purchase or sale of a home, but after the sale. We take great pride in the fact that over 80% of our business comes from previous clients, referrals from previous clients, and community activities.

Our entire team of real estate professionals is dedicated to providing excellent service and with the support of our Client Services Team they are able to focus on their clients. From administrative work to marketing to closing, we are here every step of the way to handle each detail and ensure a smooth and stress-free real estate experience.

PARK CO., REALTORS® does not charge administration or transaction coordination fees to our sellers or buyers. All of our services for sellers are provided within our brokerage commission at no additional charge. For buyers, we do not charge any fees for signing up with us as a buyer and a buyer’s agents commission is generally paid from the seller’s proceeds.


OUR HISTORY

PARK CO., REALTORS® was organized on January 17, 1956 as Island Park Associates, Inc.

In 1982, PARK CO., REALTORS® joined Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service which was later acquired by GMAC Home Services. As they grew, the company developed their own systems for real estate services and no longer needed to rely on support from a franchise. In June 2005, PARK CO., REALTORS® once again became an independent residential real estate company.

In 2002, PARK CO., REALTORS® opened a location in West Acres Shopping Center in Fargo. The Home Information Kiosk was staffed during mall hours and offered customers a convenient location to look at homes and discuss their real estate needs. In 2017, the Home Information Koisk was remodeled and renamed Park West Kiosk. 

In 2005, PARK CO., REALTORS® expanded once again to add mortgage services. While they encourage buyers to find the lender that best fits their needs, Park Mortgage located at 4170 41st Ave Ste 102, Fargo offers clients the convenience of one-stop shopping from a company they know and trust.

In 2015, PARK CO., REALTORS® expanded again with the addition of Park Co. Commercial for commercial real estate needs, located at 4170 41st Ave Ste 102, Fargo.

Since 1991, PARK CO., REALTORS® has been the number one residential real estate company in Fargo, Moorhead, and surrounding area. In a market of more than 60 companies, PARK CO., REALTORS continues to work with more home buyers and sellers than any other company in the area.

PARK CO., REALTORS® is interwoven in the history of Fargo. Our corporate office at 4170 41st Ave Ste 102, Fargo provides access to all major roadway arteries. We support a community that has supported us for over 60 years. It is because of this strong tie to the area that PARK CO., REALTORS® has sustained and will continue to grow as the right people for the right move.
