Gary Seykora


I have worked with people my entire life. I was a Art Teacher for three different school systems for 25 years of which 18 were with Owatonna. And while I was doing that I also learned the trades of Professional House Painting, Remodeling and New Home Construction. With all of these trades I was constantly learning as well as teaching. Moving into Real Estate a few years ago was a smooth transition for me. As an Owatonna native I know this area well. Combining that with the skills of my other professions above I bring a wealth of knowledge to my clients. At Parkside Realty, Inc., “I’ll treat your property as if it were my own.”

We listed our hobby farm with Gary after interviewing a number of other agents. His commitment to us and the sale of our farm was evident in his brilliant marketing strategies and his willingness to “stick with it” even in a depressed real estate market. Not only did he sell our wonderful farm to a couple who loves it as much as we did, he helped us into our delightful new “nest” and is assisting in our renovation and decorating projects!

We used Gary Seykora to find our house in Owatonna. He was very professional and listened to all of our needs. He didn’t waste our time showing us houses that were out of our price range and not worth looking at. He has a great eye for space and was very helpful when looking at the nuts and bolts of the property. When it came down to ‘offer time’ he worked diligently to get us the best deal possible. When we are in the market again, we will definitely be using Gary to find our next home and sell our current one.

Gary has painted various areas of our home over the years. His attention to details and artistic eye, result in beautifully painted rooms. We highly recommend Gary. We also have recommended Gary as a realtor, and when the time comes for us to sell, we will select Gary to be our realtor. Gary treats homes listed as if they were his own, and gives tips and advice as to how to best present your home to maximize its selling potential .
