    When Brian and Sabine opened The French Real Estate Company back in 1999, it was out of their home on Mary Street . Today, you can find their office in the old Herter's Building at 111 E. Burnett St, Beaver Dam, where they built their apartment upstairs (just look upstairs where the big windows are). Sabine manages the office (among other things) while trying to keep up with Brian and all his new ideas, they have two children Christopher and Shelby .

    Sabine was born in a small town in Germany (Hessisch-Oldendorf - go look it up on a map) where Brian met her. Brian was living (living it up) there while with the Air Force. Christopher was born while on their second stationing in Germany - southern Germany this time. Reluctantly, Sabine followed Brian to the States on the promise of 24 hour shopping and no more hand-washing of laundry. Brian and Sabine took a leap of faith in 1999 - Brian left his job with the Federal Aviation Administration (where they started their day by taking a break) - deciding then to open the real estate business.

    Sold a home in 2015.

    Our family enjoyed very much working with Brian French of French Realty. He is professional, but not pushy. He is knowledgeable, but not patronizing. He communicated very well (email, text, phone) with both my husband and myself. He took the time to explain, (and often re-explain!) to each of us regarding our own personal questions and our questions together as a family. He listened to our voices and was able to filter it all into helping us find the right home to fit all of our needs. We have, in the past, used other realtors, but for our specific interests: 1) honest 2) knowledgeable 3) approachable/reachable 4) LOCAL business owner 5) respectful 6) thorough 7) worked with our kids along at times (and was completely understanding of that--thank you!) **8) went above and beyond to help explain so much to us as we looked; for these interests--(and that he's really easy to work with)-- we would highly recommend Brian French as a realtor. 5 stars, A++++, thanks much!  More Less

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Horicon, WI.

    You need 6 stars to evaluate Brian French. 5 stars ins not enough. His knowledge in real estate transactions, marketing, and negotiation is far beyond what I have ever experienced with others. Courteous, professional, and timely. Succinctly put - he sold our home at a good price where 3 other realtors before him had tried and failed to do so.  More Less

    Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Verona, WI.

    We were so happy that we hired Brian as our realtor. We were especially impressed by his knowledge of home construction and his ability to notice details that impact the value of a home. He pointed out many things we would not have noticed on our own. He gave good information without making us feel at all pressured. We also enjoyed spending time with him; he is interesting, droll, and personable. He always gave us plenty of time and returned our calls or emails promptly. We had an offer on our home two days after listing it, which indicates that he guided us well in setting the price. He also worked skillfully in helping us move forward when we were hesitant due to unforeseen circumstances. He handled everything very professionally and with good humor. We are very happy with the home we bought and with how the process went. Oh, and he offered us the use of space in his warehouse to store our belongings between the sale of our house and the closing on our new home, which was wonderful. Thank you, Brian! We highly recommend Brian French to anyone selling or buying a home in the Beaver Dam- Madison area.  More Less
