Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Menomonee Falls, WI.

Annette was extremely helpful to me as a first time home buyer... she helped me be prepared for everything, and was with me every step of the way. She was always available, and if I requested any info, she would have it to me in no time!

I really appreciated how Annette took care of my interests during negotations, and I absolutely trusted her judgment and all of her advice. Any time there was a bump in the road, she always had a solution and took care of it before I could even worry about it!

She helped me make the best choice on the right home for me, and made it an enjoyable experience. I can't imagine going through this process without her, and would highly recommend working with Annette if you are looking to buy a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Wauwatosa, WI.

Annette was amazing! She listened to our needs and found multiple properties for us to tour and compare. I found her quick to respond to our questions and requests. She was very knowledgeable and attentive to the condition of the property when we were touring homes and made us aware of items that were questionable. We couldn't be happier with the services she provided. She helped us find the perfect home at the right price!!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Brookfield, WI.

I selected Annette as my real estate agent on Zillow based on her ratings and recommendations. Her professional and people skills proved that those ratings and recommendations were true and honest. I wanted to do the same so if people are looking for a happy, energetic, patient, knowledgeable. resourceful, responsive, great negotiator and an expert in real estate with great knowledge of the area, Annette is the wisest choice. She was very patient and never pushed me in making decisions or write offer, whenever I said no after seeing a home, she used to reply very lightly "Don't worry, we will see more homes and will find a home of your dream very soon ." Very well said and finally she got me a perfect home, fully updated, in desired school district and neighbourhood, in budget, scenic with wild life, very bright and well maintained ready to move in home. Her negotiation skills are speechless, not only she got me my home at good price after negotiation but also after home inspection she got fixed all defects per reports but also all maintenance recommendations from seller. Her responsiveness is so prompt though she sold me a home and i am not her client any more but for any question or concern regarding property, she responds at her earliest possible very politely and a serving heart and attitude.

I strongly recommend Annette to pick as your listing or buying agent, you will be thankful that I recommended as I am thankful to those who recommended her and based on that I chose her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Brown Deer, WI.

Annette helped me find my very first home. I went from having no idea really where I wanted to live or what I preferred in a home, to finding the right one. Which, despite the patience involved, does come along after all!

Annette was patient with me, helpful, resourceful, and I am grateful I sought her out!

Her recommendations for financing turned out to be a real life saver, and also got a reliable handy man in the deal!

If you are new to home buying or need someone to sort through the many underwhelming options with you, Annette's your woman.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K 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!

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 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.
