My experience with Cathy and Gretchen made it possible to get through a very difficult process after losing my mom. They offered their expertise regarding getting her condo ready to put on the market without ever putting pressure on me. They gave me insight into the current housing market and kept me on track all while allowing me to make my own decisions. I couldn't be more grateful, they exceeded my expectations and did it with great care and compassion. Excellence at it's best!

What clients are saying...
I absolutely loved working with Cathy and Gretchen. Looking for houses in general can be stressful and grueling, but add in looking for houses from the East Coast- it takes the situation to a new level. Cathy and Gretchen were so flexible to meet with my mom to view the houses, were extremely communicative, and were honest. They gave honest opinions about offers, timelines, etc. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. The process was seamless and so easy, even considering all the obstacles in the current market, and geographical. Thank you for everything!
Cathy and Gretchen were wonderful to work with! We had to go through the home-buying process virtually since we lived out of state, so they were extra accommodating with our situation and always available to talk. They really worked hard and went the extra mile for us to help make sure our offer got accepted.
We met Cathy and Gretchen by happenstance. We walked into a showing on the east side by the lake and they were busy setting up, but they more than made time to warmly greet us. We were in the process of finding a realtor we could trust to SELL and BUY from at the time. They reached out via email two days later. CG came to us in Bay View and fell in love with our place. They blew away the ideas of their competition, coming up with ways to maximize space and optimize the yard. They brought in a photographer and videographer. They came up with a strategy that ended up setting a new record of price per square foot the area. They hustled day and night to say the least. While that could be the happy end of this story, it is not. CG helped us find a new place on a Sunday evening even though we weren't officially looking yet. We had walked into a showing casually, but fell in love with this place. Cathy called while we were there and realized we were interested and said we will be right there. They were! There were three offers. They sat with us on a Sunday night listening but not influencing us to make best offer. We now have our dream home. In this process Cathy and Gretchen became our friends. We could not be happier about the decisions we made hiring them. Thank you, ladies!
My wife and I met Gretchen and Cathy randomly at an open house just as we were beginning a search for a new home in Milwaukee. Our lucky day! We have done 8 real estate transactions in our lives and never had as positive an experience as this one, buying or selling. Cathy and Gretchen are extremely knowledgeable, responsive and hard working. They were there literally 24/7 to answer questions, and show us properties. Once we found the perfect situation they helped make every step of the process from negotiations through closing go as smoothly as could be! No need to look any further if you need a team to represent you on either side of the transaction!
We were contemplating selling our home, a home we had lived in for over 26 years. The decision was a difficult one, filled with great memories that fostered our hesitation to make a decision. We had contacted Cathy and Gretchen, quite honestly just to openly discuss the possibility, and what the process would entail. The initial meeting was not what I had envisioned, none of the expected pressure selling points were discussed. It was informal, with a sense of personal concern, providing us with all the information needed to make a decision. The meeting ended with no decision to sell, but felt confident that this was the right team to align ourselves with. Two weeks later we had made a decision to sell, and contacted Cathy and Gretchen to represent us. The selling process was seamless, governed by two professionals that guided us through the process. Their availability, attention to detail, market awareness and knowledge was outstanding. A job well done! Can't thank them enough, and would highly recommend the team of Cathy and Gretchen. We look forward to working with them in finding our next home.
There are so many words to describe CG Realtors, first and foremost HUSTLE! They hustled each and everyday with great communication, along with an understanding that selling and buying creates a lot of stress and emotions. They supplied data to us to make educated decisions, yet those decisions were never influenced which at the end of the day was very important to us. I would highly recommend CG for either side of the home buying/selling transaction.
Cathy and Gretchen were an absolute pleasure to work with. Beyond being knowledgeable, professional and responsive , they are genuinely kind and caring people who make their clients feel genuinely valued. They made the buying (and selling) process seamless and enjoyable.. even in this crazy market. Just a great experience working with these two!
You can't do any better than teaming with Cathy and Gretchen to sell your home. They have a great depth of knowledge at every stage of the home selling process to make sure that everything goes smoothly. They are very proactive in their approach and truly care for their clients. It was very apparent to us that they work very hard to get the best outcome possible.
Having Cathy and Gretchen as agents made selling our home a positive experience. Their professionalism and attention to detail sets them apart from all the rest!
