Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Brookfield, WI.

We first met Annette when we made an appointment to look at a home that we ended up not being interested in but we stayed and talked to Annette for a while after the showing and she gave us some tips that were helpful and names of lenders and other professionals that she felt were great to work with and at least made us believe that she was knowledgeable in what she does.

About a month or so later, my husband and I found a home that we wanted to put an offer in on and we called Annette to help us, as we are first time buyers.

Annette was, for the most part, prompt with responses to our questions and requests to see the property on several occasions. (We were planning a remodel to begin the day we were scheduled to close). Looking back on the experience, I think that my husband and I had expectations - mostly regarding communication - that sometimes weren't met BUT being first time buyers and never having worked with a real estate agent before, I now see that in some areas our expectations were too high. We did go with a lender and a home inspector that she highly recommended and were happy with both of those experiences as well.

I would say that we would use Annette again but we plan to be in this house for a long time and hope not to NEED her! However, we will pass her name on.

Good luck going forward, Annette and thank you for your help!

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of my services. I have found that each review offers an opportunity for personal growth, which only happens when clients are honest with their experience. Annette

Bought a home in 2014.

Annette is the BEST!!! Annette was very intuitive about the homes we seen. All she wanted was to find a home perfect for my fiancee and I. We looked at so many homes it took us over a year to find the right home. Annette was patient and kind the whole time. We should definitely recommend her and use her services again!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Menomonee Falls, WI.

I am a difficult client...and Annette handled me with ease. She took care of all my needs, and there were plenty! She took my calls at all hours and set up appointments at a moments notice. She did everything in her power to ensure that I not only got the home I wanted, but that it was as smooth as possible. I would absolutely recommend Annette!

Bought a home in 2014.

Annette gave 110% throughout our home buying process. She was thorough and allowed us to see all of the possible options as she guided us towards and through the purchase of our home. She answered our questions and helped us through each step.

Bought a home in 2014.

Annette was an absolute pleasure to work with. She worked very hard to find me my new home in Milwaukee. She knew what I wanted even before I did! She is not only a tireless worker, she is a lot of fun to work with, as well. I highly recommend her.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Riverside Park, Milwaukee, WI.

We came to Annette with a tight time frame and a pretty narrow set of criteria for our first home purchase. She worked with us to find a number of places to view, and held our hands through the negotiation process. She is helpfully critical of flaws she sees in homes, which proves valuable in the negotiation phase. I would recommend Annette to my friends, and will hopefully work with her again soon.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Waukesha, WI.

Annette was wonderful, she took a whole day with us to go look at multiple houses knowing we had a short time frame to find something. She kept us in the loop at all times so I always knew where we were at in the process. Her negotiating skills are excellent, she wouldn't settle for anything less than exactly what we wanted. Although I am very excited not to have to move again for a while, it would be pleasure to work with her again!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Richfield, WI.

My wife and I had a unique way that we needed to buy a home due to previous homeownership experiences. Annette made sure that we not only got the home we wanted and needed but that we got the right loan as well. After a full year of searching and continually grinding through a tough home market Annette found us a home that not only did we love but our kids loved. This home was listed extremely far out of reach for us financially but her negotiation skills came through and we purchased this home far below our budget. Without Annette on our side we never would have had our dreams come true. The comfort of having a realtor helping anytime or any day of the week really made this a simple process. We were never treated as a customer but we were always treated like a close friend or family member. My advice to everyone is use Annette only if you can handle the best care because that is what you will always get from her.

Sold a home in 2013.

I have to say that I was completely blown away with Annette. She has gone above and beyond numerous times and has been so accommodating with my crazy schedule. We found our dream home and she helped us with every step of the way. She also has extensive resources to help if any issues arise and was able to provide reputable providers for anything that came up. She is the perfect blend of professional and fun. You are really missing out if you do not choose to work with Annette! She is the only realtor I would ever work with and I tell everyone I know to work with her if they are looking to buy or sell.
