Philanthropically minded, Lara Duddingston has a caring charisma that will make your heart melt!
Lara’s knowledge of Saint Paul, MN, neighborhoods, the St. Paul, MN, school system, and area history provide her clients with a wealth of information whether they’re buying or selling a home. She also took a hiatus to live in downtown and southwest Minneapolis, and has knowledge of these areas as well.
Lara was born and raised in the Ramsey Hill area of St. Paul. As a child of two Realtors® who specialized in historical preservation and neighborhood redevelopment, Lara was said to have been “condominium-izing” her Barbie® house at a young age. She is a graduate of Saint Paul Highland Park Senior High School and the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus. Her roots in Saint Paul are deep.
As an active participant in her community, Lara was a recipient of the Ramsey Hill Association’s “Good Neighbor” award, where she served as the Association’s secretary and fundraising chair. She’s been an active PTO and Site Council member and committee chair at SPPS’s L’Étoile du Nord French Immersion school and Ramsey Middle School, and has served as a member of the District Parent Advisory Council. She has experience in organizing and fundraising for community organizations and political candidates.
Fluent in French, Lara is a lover of all things French, specifically the South of France. Minnesota’s state motto is, “L’Étoile du Nord” – “The North Star”. Minnesota is our home and Lara will work diligently to find and sell yours.
What makes Lara odd?
During her times living in France, Lara acquired the habit of hanging her clothes on the clothes line to dry, which she continues to do in Minnesota even during the winter!
