Zimmerman Area Information - What a Great Place to Live!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. 539MN

I have been meaning to write a post for my own website that gives all the information for the Zimmerman area, and as long as I am putting it on my website, I thought I would share it here for my sphere, too.


Zimmerman is a great town, and it has so much to offer in sights and amenities. 


If you haven’t visited lately, you will be surprised at our growth.  And, we still maintain that Wild West flavor….or Up North flavor, if you will.


Here is some of the great information that the City has posted on the Sherburne  County website!

Love to see this type of localism posts, Don.  Thanks.  Sometimes I need this information when selling homes in that area, too.

Hi Don -- Zimmerman schools must draw from other areas as the number of students enrolled is quite high versus the population.
