Centennial Realty of New York Mills will be under new ownership starting July 1. Bonnie Dykoff, a long time resident of New York Mills, has purchased the business from Debbie Porkkonen. Centennial Realty was founded in 1998 by Debbie Porkkonen of New York Mills. The business has a total of three agents working in and around the lakes area.

Porkkonen is an avid fisherwoman with the love for carpentry, remodeling many homes to make them new again. She has helped hundreds of home buyers and sellers through the area find their dream home which will carry on.

Dykoff has been in the business management and marketing industry for over 29 years. The last 10 years have been spent in real estate, she fully understands the ever changing real estate market and technology that is required for successful marketing of homes. Dykhoff credits her love of real estate to father, who was a contractor. She spent time on job sites, 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.

The Centennial Realty team is excited for the change of ownership and looks forward to serving the lakes area to its fullest. Porkkonen will remain in the business as an agent.
