Real estate was named an ‘essential’ business by the State of Wisconsin on March 23rd, 2020 per the Safer at Home Order and since then we’ve made some significant adjustments. Housing is an essential need. If you are in a home and feel safe, it makes it easier to navigate through this pandemic. If you need to buy or sell a home right now, you might feel anxious or have questions. We are here for you.
Not only are we following the CDC safety guidelines for businesses but we are also going above and beyond in other areas specific to the real estate industry.

Looking for homes in the middle of a pandemic was not easy for Ariana and James! Ariana was not able to attend showings with James so we used FaceTime and it was a great way for her to tour homes with us.

Congratulations Ariana and James on your first home purchase!
