I’ve written before about how much living in a small town means to me.

During a recent heavy snowfall, I met my dad and step mom for dinner at one of the locally owned restaurants in Hutchinson. The snowfall was heavy throughout the evening and when we were done, we walked out to the parking area. Here was one of the owners of the restaurant with a shovel in his hand. He had shoveled a path to my dad’s car so they would not have to walk in the snow. Then he proceeded to brush off all the snow from the car!

Needless to say, this owners’ thoughtfulness was beyond kind. I will continue to eat at this restaurant and won’t forget the kindness they showed my dad and his wife. This is just one example of the advantages of living in a small town such as Hutchinson, MN.

When it comes time for you to upgrade, downgrade or purchase your first home in Hutchinson or the surrounding communities of McLeod county be sure to contact the MN real estate professionals at Hometown Realty.

Only in a small town.
