We recently made the move from Iowa to West Bend, Wisconsin. We knew that buying a house so far away would have its difficulties, especially paired with the fast-moving market as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Gretchen and Cathy went above and beyond to make the process as smooth and enjoyable as possible! Since we were from outside the area, we started with a very broad search. They not only helped us narrow down our search to a more focused area with their knowledge and expertise, they also took the time to listen and learn our wants and needs and ultimately found us the perfect house! They were a joy to work with and were always a phone call, text, or in this case, a Facetime away. They were personable, attentive, and all around great people to work with! I would highly recommend them when looking for your new home, you won't regret it!

What clients are saying...
If you are looking for a knowledgeable and caring team - Cathy and Gretchen are definitely it! They made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process, and really got to know me and what I was looking for. They weren't concerned with pushing me towards a larger or more expensive home, they found me one that fit my NEEDS, which turned out to be different from my original thoughts going in. I would trust them to help me buy or sell anything in the future, though I plan to stay as long as I can in my new home :-)
Cathy and Gretchen went above and beyond to ensure that every step of the home buying process was smooth and efficient for us. They advocated for us from the day we began house hunting to closing. As first time buyers, we had many questions, and Cathy and Gretchen made themselves available at all times to support us. They exceeded our expectations by communicating with us frequently throughout the entire process, keeping us on track for closing. Together they are incredibly knowledgable, responsible, and professional on every level. We would wholeheartedly recommend Cathy and Gretchen to anyone for a pleasant and successful realty experience.
Cathy did an excellent job for the Potter family. Her deep knowledge of the WFB market for our home allowed her to be appropriately aggressive in her assessment of value and asking price. She was respectful of our desires (no signage) and long time emotional attachment to our home. She was also proactive and responsive to our emails, text and voice mail messages. She is talented and shared those talents in helping us stage the home and create a portfolio of pictures that appropriately showcased the positive elements of our home. I would highly recommend Cathy.
I had the pleasure of working with Gretchen and Cathy for the sale of my previous home and the purchase of my existing one. Gretchen and Cathy are extremely professional, personable, detail oriented, and very hard working. They have a clearly defined process they follow that includes staging, brining in other advisors to help with pricing, marketing the property, and then negotiating. As a team, I also felt like I had the advantage of having two realtors working for me! I strongly recommend Cathy and Gretchen to anyone buying or selling a home!
