Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Brookfield, WI.
I happened to stumble over M3 Realty through a random Zillow query, and I'm so glad I did. From the very first house Pat showed me, I was impressed by her knowledge and customer service. As a buyers agent, she pointed out problem areas or potential things to address. She knew about local codes and possible special assessments. She had my best interests in mind with each house she showed me - and there were a LOT of them. When I finally found the right house (2 1/2 yrs later), the deal almost fell through 3 days before closing when the underwriter had an issue with the deck (which had inspected fine). When Pat called me to tell me about the underwriter's issue, she already had a plan in place to address it. She and Martin quickly bought and installed some spindles on the deck railing - the very next day - and the closing proceeded as planned! I'm so grateful to them! I would HIGHLY recommend M3 Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell. My finance guy also commented that Pat was possibly the best realtor he'd ever worked with, and can't wait to do so again!

Kari - It was fun to work with you and I feel like we have become friends in the process! I'm looking forward to working with you again to stage and sell your Milwaukee home! Thank you for the glowing review!!

I was probably what a realtor would consider a worst case scenario buyer. I started looking at the market with a very low dollar amount (just a couple $X,000.00) for a down payment. That being said, the properties I first looked at were not the properties I saw myself raising a family in. I continued to save more money, a lot more, but the market kept rising and it seemed like i wasn't going to get ahead of it. This was upsetting to me, but Ben was always telling me "don't worry Mike, there's one out there for you, we are going to find it.." due to my low dollar starting, this took much time, as I needed save much more. 3 years later we found it! Talk about dedication! This guy is awesome. He didn't just want to sell me a house. Ben made sure it was the right one for me, and devoted a lot of his time to me to make sure I would be happy, and I am! Now I have my 3 bed, 1.5 bath, 2.5 car garage with driveway home I was dreaming of for those 3 long years. Thanks so much to the entire M3 team for making my dream come true!, and guiding me through the process with the most professional advise and demeanor. I will use only them going forward when I someday sell my home, and buy another house. Ben, and the M3 team are THE way to go. Thanks again for keeping me in a good situation, and being honest, and getting me where I wanted to be.
At exactly this time one year ago my husband and I were on our way to close on our first home. It probably shouldn't have taken me this long to sit down and write a review, but the last year has been very chaotic one. As anyone who has purchased a home knows, the experience is a stressful one and for a young couple with two young children and a limited budget it can also be a very intimidating process, that is why we feel so fortunate to have had Ben Mullikin taking care of us. While I'm sure other realtors may be just as knowledgeable as Ben, I guarantee you that you will not find another that is as enthusiastic, compassionate, and invested in making sure you find the home that is right for your family. While we were very impressed throughout the buying process, we were most impressed with how much the entire Mullikin family continues to care about having a lasting relationship with their clients. About two months to the day after closing on our new home we had major electrical damage done after a severe storm took a tree down outside our home. We had never had to hire an electrician or file a claim with the insurance company so we called Ben for advice. Not only did he provide us with a recommendation for a great electrician, but he came out to see our family that night with a touching card from the Mullikin family. We have enjoyed the last year in our home and look forward to many more, but when it comes time for us to look again we know that will be calling Ben!

I had the pleasure of working with the M3 Reality while purchasing my first home. I worked mostly with Ben and was very pleased with the experience. He knew what to look for when we visited homes and he explained everything to me. He gave me good advice about what to be noticing in all rooms of potential buys. Once I chose my perfect home, Ben was there for me every step of the way. Again, he explained the whole process and I felt very confident in my decisions. I learned so much about buying a house and it's because Ben took the time to be sure I understood. He was flexible with his schedule and always on time. I would highly recommend this family owned and operated business. They are professional, knowledgable and friendly. They love what they do and it shows everyday!
We chose Pat and team based on a friends recommendation.
SHE WAS AWESOME!
Selling and relocating is a busy time for anyone and Pat put forth a tremendous effort for us. She effectively guided us through our necessary decisions with smart suggestions. Pat clearly explained our options along with potential ramifications. Her local market knowledge proved invaluable. We were able to complete our sale in a timely and clean transaction! If only we could have had her expertise when we purchased in our new, out of state, location!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Waukesha, WI.
My husband and I were first time homebuyers, so naturally we were nervous about the whole process. Ben really helped to make the process less intimidating. He explained everything in a way that we could easily understand, helped us in every way he could, was honest and upfront, and really went above and beyond throughout the whole process (and even after we closed)! We ended up with a wonderful home, in the perfect area, for a great price! His friendly demeanor also made him such a pleasure to work with. We will not hesitate to use him in the future with our home realty needs!

In September of last year, I found Martin through Zillow as we were relocating to the Milwaukee area and reached out. He showed us home after home in every section of the Milwaukee and all of its suburbs, even those he realized might not be a good fit, and let us make up our own minds. He was extremely urgent and available, at one point even fielding a call from a sale by owner at midnight the night before a showing because that owner couldn't figure out how to use the key box. His responsiveness, urgency, and willingness were the best of any agent I've worked with (and we've relocated for work several times).
Selling your home, retiring and moving to another state are all stressful events in anyone's life. Pat's attention to detail from staging to researching to insure the best sell price to constant communication helped relieve a lot of my stress. She an ethical, honest , straight forward professional who I highly recommend if you want the best! Thanks Pat for all your help!
