Colleen did an outstanding job as our realtor in both buying and selling our homes in Delavan. She put her heart and soul in the sale of our home after 38 years of living there as we downsized into a condo. She was very professional, always keeping us informed as well as a very caring person becoming a friend to us. We would highly recommend her and give her a five star plus rating.
As a resident of Walworth County since 1993, I have familiarity with the Geneva Lakes area that will greatly benefit you in achieving your home buying and selling experience. I am passionate about sharing my real estate knowledge with buyers and sellers. My passion comes from my lifelong experiences in the area, first as a child raised and educated in the Northern suburbs of Chicago enjoying summer and winter vacations on Delavan Lake, then as an adult making Delavan Lake our family home and raising my own children here as a full-time member of the community. Beyond my love of Walworth County and many of the surrounding counties, I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then launched my real estate career in 2005. The real estate market for the last eighteen years included tremendous highs and lows for buyers and sellers alike. No matter the market, I work above and beyond your expectations, and freely share my experience, knowledge of the area, and the intricacies of real estate transactions unique to our area such as lake rights, encroachments, and use permits. Above all, I am committed to integrity with each relationship as evidenced by my testimonials and achievements in the profession.

What clients are saying...
Colleen and her team have the highest professional standards. She is thorough and very thoughtful. I felt I received excellent advice in terms of pricing. She was sensitive and compassionate in the sale of my family home. She is an excellent negotiator and always represented my interests as the seller. Of the more intent real estate transactions I have been involved in my lifetime this one went the smoothest. I intend to use her again in the future!
Colleen could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to get the listing up quickly in this competitive market and were able to get multiple showings within the first days of the home being put on the market with a final offer being put in over asking price. During the time for home inspections and the buyers final walk throughs, she provided exceptional advice in addition to recommending us the best contractors in the area to fix any issue we had with the home. In the end, without a doubt, I will forever recommend Colleen to friends and family for all real estate buying and selling needs. She knows the market well, kept me and my actions on track which led to a simple and easy closing. So thankful to have had the experience of making the selling of my home an easy one.
Although I've had some experience buying a home, I did not have any experience as a seller. Colleen took the time to explain things in detail and was very patient answering questions. She made great suggestions and really worked hard to market our property for maximum exposure. The property sold very quickly and everything went pretty smoothly, mostly because Colleen was on top of all the details. I had great confidence in her knowledge and expertise, and I felt that she was trustworthy and looking out for our best interests. We considered a couple of other agents before listing our property with Colleen, and I think it was a wise decision to go with Colleen. I have already recommended her to someone I know who is looking to buy a property in the Lake Geneva/Delavan area.
Colleen Goethal is our rock star. Communication and attention to details are incredibly important during the home search/sale process and Colleen is outstanding at both. She's quick to respond and did an excellent job of updating us on priority items and taking the time to explain everything. So accommodating with her time. Her advice was instrumental in an above listing sale that we never expected. Can't thank her enough.
Colleen was fabulous! Our neighbor had used her and said we have to meet her before listing our home. We are so glad we did, she was fabulous! From start to end, she was professional, available, followed thru and went above and beyond. We have bought and sold homes in Chicago, Lake Geneva, Vail and California and she is truly our favorite agent. I would recommend Colleen to everyone.
I am extremely happy with Colleen Goethal helping me sell my home. Everything was done in a professional/timely manner. Colleen handled all the advertising, paperwork and everything else I needed to sell my home. I would highly recommend Colleen if you're interested in selling your home.
We are writing to provide a testimonial to the expert and committed real estate transactions that were brokered on our behalf by Colleen Goethal of Shorewest Realtors in Delavan, Wisconsin. We sold a home and purchased a home with Colleen. She was professional, responsive and organized. Her expertise helped us get what we needed from the old place and what we needed in the new place. Her counsel instilled confidence and provided peace of mind through a process that can be anything but peaceful, especially in the current market. Being both buyer and seller, Colleen's skills provided reassurance. When the first buyer backed out of their offer, we lost time on the market along with prospective buyers. Colleen didn't hesitate, got our home back on the MLS and put together a well-attended open house to draw the attention of prospective buyers and agents to our property. This quick action helped bring another offer to us, and at full asking price, within a couple weeks. This was crucial to us as we had an accepted cash offer for our new home. Despite some unforeseen circumstances, Colleen was able to overcome them for us and worked out both closings on the same day, saving us additional storage and moving expenses. We are grateful for Colleen's expertise and commitment to brokering both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. As such, we recommend Colleen as a qualified and dedicated agent for either the sale and/or purchase of your next residence. Thank you, Colleen. And best wishes to those making a move. Sincerely, Cindy and Jay Rasmussen Happy clients of Colleen Goethal of Shorewest Realtors, Delavan, WI.
Colleen is so amazing. She took us around to see nine different properties in December. None of them were perfect for us. We were not in a big rush, so we keep looking online. Since we were living in another state, Colleen set up video viewings for us so that we could see some properties via video. Colleen kept sending various possibilities our way... and then we narrowed it down to five good choices we wanted to see in May. We feel that Colleen is a good listener and that she understood what we wanted in our new home. We highly recommend Colleen. She certainly took good care of us and she can take good care of you!
Because we were living in Santa Fe while we were looking for a new home in Wisconsin, we needed a realtor who would be knowledgeable and responsive. Colleen was the perfect choice. She guided us through every step of the process with an upbeat attitude and thorough preparation. She is what we would consider to be a professional realtor in every way!
