    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.

    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

    Showed home in 2014 in South Beaver Dam, Beaver Dam, WI 53916.

    I contacted Brian through Trulia on a home I located. his response time was within 1 Hr. I travel a lot and just happened to be going through Beaver Dam on a Sunday afternoon and contacted Brian who dropped everything and met us at the house I picked out. Brian's contractor background was a big plus in looking at the details in home construction. Brian's social skills are direct and to the point. He can seem a little brassie at times but is very professional and will lookout for his clients from the offer to closing.  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Beaver Dam, WI.

    Brian was a pleasure to work with. Being that it was our first experience in the home buying process, we were a little overwhelmed. However, Brian put our fears to rest by talking us throught the process. From his knowledge of the criteria of our loan to the local knowlege of the area, I really felt that we were in good hands. What really impressed me about Brian was his detailed knowledge of the structure of a home. When we did look at houses, he was sure to point out any trouble spots or issues that may cause concern to us in the future which really made me trust that he was there for us every step of the way in our best interest. We found our home and closed within 3 months time and we couldn't be happier! Thank you Brian!!  More Less
