Bonnie has been in the business management and marketing industry for over 29 years. The last 10 have been spent in real estate, so she has a firm grasp on the ever changing real estate market as well as keeps up on the trends and technology that is required for successful marketing of homes. She owes her love of homes to her dad who was a contractor and she spent time on job sights, looking over blueprints and watching the home building process. Being a native to Otter Tail and Wadena counties all her life she is very versed in the area and has beneficial knowledge whether it be residential homes, lakeshore, ag and recreational land and commercial. Proud to be independently and locally owned, she enjoys improving the communities and building relationships that don't end after the transaction is over.
In 1998 Centennial Realty was established in what was called the “Centennial Building” by Debbie Porkkonen… an avid fisherwoman, a carpenter at heart, someone who loves to spend time in her gardens, but most importantly has a passion for playing “match maker” in the world of real estate.
Chelsea’s love of helping others mixed with an interest in homes has led her to the path of real estate. She enjoys outdoor activities such as 4-wheeling, packing up her family and heading to the lake along with spending time with her friends and family. Her aim in the world of real estate will be to make your real estate experience stress free and as pleasurable as possible.
Jon grew up on a dairy farm in the Otter Tail area. He currently resides outside of New York Mills on a 60-acre hobby farm that he has transformed into an amazing whitetail area by using the lands full potential. Along with his wife, son and daughter, they raise beef, chickens and hogs. For Jon, country living is not just a place to live, but a way of life. He feels it is important to raise his children to learn to live off the land and care for it. He and his family are passionate about hunting, fishing and using their lands resources. Jon is well versed and knowledgeable about management of land and participates in quality deer management. He enjoys sharing his experiences by helping clients pursuing land ownership as well as clients looking to sell their recreational or farm land. Whether your interests include starting a hobby farm, developing prime hunting habitat, or a piece of quiet country living, Jon is a great resource. He looks forward to building new relationships and working together on conservation of our land.
Stephanie’s family moved to the beautiful lakes country of Minnesota when she was just 4 years old. As a newcomer to the area she watched her father, Dr. Steven Wendt build his chiropractic career in Perham. Over the next 26 years Stephanie’s father taught her the importance of treating people right and creating good relationships with people by helping and caring for them. Stephanie has taken that with her as she has been working one on one as a hair stylist for over a decade. She loves working with people and producing positive outcomes in their lives. She's excited to be on the fun & experienced team at Centennial Realty, and looks forward to working with you.
