Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Marshall, WI.
Tj was a pleasure to work with. He always worked very hard on my behalf to make sure I was getting the best results possible. He took the parameters I gave him for finding me a house and found me one better than I could have imagined.

Showed home in 2012 in Maple-Prairie, Fitchburg, WI 53719.
TJ has been a joy to work with. He is always willing to fit in a showing based on your schedule, even if it is inconvenient for you. He is eager to answer your questions accurately, and will do the research necessary on the rare occasion he can't answer a specific question on the spot.

I would just like to point out this review was prior to this client purchasing a home, so that is why I don't have any green stars for negotiating. Which by the way is my favorite part of the process :)

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Mayfair Park, Madison, WI.
I saw TJ's name while searching listings on line and contacted him and asked him to keep me informed about houses in our price range. I heard from him almost daily. When I saw a house I was interested in, I contacted him and he met me at the house after work and showed it. I wanted my son to see the house (he's a carpenter) and TJ arranged to show it to us again very quickly. Once we decided to buy the house, TJ kept in contact constantly and even came to where I was babysitting my grandchildren and brought necesary papers for me to sign and other information I needed. Whenever I had a question, I could count on him to return my call as soon as he could. The whole process went very smoothly and TJ was more helpful than I ever thought a real estate agent could be. I've already told people about him and recomended they contact him if they are in the market for a home. TJ is friendly, honest, hard working and knowledgeable about real estate. It was a pleasure working with him on our property purchase.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Sauk City, WI.
TJ was awesome! We were first-time home-buyers who were totally clueless as to the entire home-purchasing process. We were referred to him by my husband's co-worker. At our first meeting, he explained to us in detail what to expect each step of the way. He ALWAYS responded to emails or phone calls the day-of and never made me feel like I was bothering him with my numerous and frequent questions! I really appreciated that when we were looking at houses, he would point out things about the house (both good and bad) that we had overlooked. When we found the house we wanted, he again explained to us in detail what to expect in the upcoming weeks. He even attended the inspection with my husband! TJ was a great negotiator and said it is his favorite part of the process! He got us a great deal on our home, better than what we were expecting!!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Middleton, WI.
TJ was great! He was friendly and professional. He was great about communicating with us. He was easy to get a hold of - always returned calls and e-mails timely. I would definitely recommend him, and if I'm ever in the market again, I plan on using him again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Fitchburg, WI.
TJ was great to work with. He bent over backwards for us and he was very thorough, incredibly flexible, responsive, straight forward, and knowledgeable. He was also very patient and never made us feel like he was working only for his best interest, which is important because you don't want to feel pressured into buying a house that's not right for you. He took it in stride when we felt we really liked a house, but it didn't turn out to be the one. TJ also has many connections with various contractors, lenders, inspectors, etc. which is extremely beneficial when you're a first-time home buyer and are unfamiliar with who to work with for future needs. You can be confident that you're getting a trustworthy referral since TJ wouldn't want to be responsible for providing a bad reference as it could reflect poorly on him as well. By TJ being intertwined with such a wide network, it saved us a lot of time and research. You won't be disappointed working with TJ.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Sun Prairie, WI.
Due to our fast approaching birth of our third child and job relocation, we had little time to find a new home. Fortunately, we were referred to TJ Vitense by a friend, and we could not have been happier. He continuously provided new listings that met our criteria, and was able to set-up multiple showings for us on a moment's notice (on multiple occasions!). He is very knowledgeable about the Madison market and was able to refer us to quality contractors, as well. TJ was present every step of the home buying process, ready to answer any questions we had. His ability to efficiently prepare, process, and submit real estate paperwork electronically, such as drafting an offer, made the home buying experience fast and efficient when we found our new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Brooklyn, WI.
I do not know where to begin. Tj's knowledge of the market is next to none. He stuck by my wife and I through a crazy market. Starting in April of 2013 we had sold our house in 5 days with nowhere to turn. We looked at many houses and lost out on two with poeple bidding over listing price. In our frustration we decided to build. TJ also represented us through this process. He was ALWAYS available when needed and answered voice mails promptly. When the building idea started to go south because the comps in the area would not compare to the house we wanted to build.TJ advised us and explained that building was a bad choice at this time and we would loose huge on our investment. After months of changing our minds TJ remained patient. We went back to looking for housing and with in 3 days we had purchased a house. My wife and I were not always the easiest to deal with but we knew we had to take and give a little. I would like to thank TJ for his guidence .Couldnt have done it without you!

Bought a home in 2013.
TJ is an incredibly dedicated agent who does a wonderful job of explaining the entire homebuying experience in a way that's easy to understand. I was a first-time homebuyer and my wife and I didn't really know much about the process at all. The first thing TJ did when he met with us was explain the process step-by-step and answered any questions we had. He also set us up with a binder to keep track of all of the things along the way. He was incredibly upfront and transparent about the entire process and what his responsibilities were as an agent. His vast knowledge on all types of buying options really helped my wife and I determine what was best for us. TJ has a great website setup that allows you to setup preferences and notifications so you're instantly informed when a new listing hits the market, or the price on a property changes. We never had to worry about going to 20 different sites and digging through newspapers or magazines to make sure we weren't missing any listings - it was a great 1-stop shop to find all of the current listings. You could also save properties you were interested in, so you could come back and look at them whenever you wanted. TJ's approach to showing properties is great - he really stands back and lets you walk through the house at your pace, in the order that you want to see things. It's great to not have a guided tour through a house - it's nice to just explore everything on your own and ask questions as they come up. It's nice to not feel like the agent is trying to "force" the sale on you by describing how nice certain things are. We probably looked at about 20 properties with TJ and there was never a question we had that he couldn't answer. When it gets down to it, the best thing an agent can do for you is negotiate and get you a great price, and that is probably TJ's strongest ability. He made a potentially very stressful situation very unstressful. He was persistant with the seller, and he did a great job providing us with updates and counter-offers. He's very careful to not push you in one direction or the other (which is great), but you can tell he truly does not want you to overpay for a house if he feels it's not in your best interest. That kind of honesty makes TJ an incredibly trustworthy agent. Based on TJ's website, quick response time, and knowledge of the process it's obvious that he is an incredibly hard-working agent. I knew TJ was very busy with other clients, but during my entire time working with him I felt like I was his only client. You can tell that he's incredibly organized, and he takes job seriously, while making it fun at the same time. We're incredibly happy with the house TJ helped us buy - but if the time ever comes when we're ready to sell we will not hesitate to work with TJ again.
