Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Town of Lake, Milwaukee, WI.
Annette was detail-oriented and kept the sale of our home moving along as smooth as she could.

Her sense of humor, while maintaining professionalism is welcome!

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Thiensville, WI.
Annette worked with us for more than two years. Her patience and knowledge helped us find our perfect home. For months, she showed us homes without pushing. Every showing was an opportunity to learn and she took the time to get us comfortable with the home buying process. As first time homebuyers, Annette wasn't just helpful, she was essential.

Annette is an honest, forthcoming and supportive realtor. Highly recommend! (Thanks again, Annette!)

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Bluemound Heights, Milwaukee, WI.
I found Annette on Zillow. My wife and I were moving from Michigan to Milwaukee and just started our search online. I only expected it to be a feeler out there for the Milwaukee housing market but Annette was so good at communicating that we decided to go ahead and use her.

On our first meeting, she was very helpful and explained how the process worked to new homebuyers like us. She was great in all aspects. Always nice, always respectful, never condescending. I could tell at times when my wife (and surely myself) was being extra picky or indecisive, that Annette would still listen. She was helpful in pointing us in the right direction when our desires and dreams were too grand for what we needed. And in that sense, she knew what we wanted better than we did. Like I said before, always helpful and always in a respectful manner.

We eventually found a condo after 6 months. Grueling for all of us but Annette became a friend to us in the process. For that we are extremely grateful and give her the highest of recommendations.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Riverwest, Milwaukee, WI.
We contacted Annette through Zillow after reading prior reviews and we are so happy we did! We were living in the Miami area when we originally contacted Annette requesting assistance in locating a home/condo in Milwaukee for our son who would be attending graduate school there. Since we were unfamiliar with the Milwaukee area, we had to totally rely on Annette's expertise and experience in finding a home for him. Once Annette accessed our needs, she began sending us notification of properties that fit our criteria. Subsequently, we narrowed the possibilities and Annette spent a day with our son showing him several units, along with a tour of the city and surroundings. Based on her knowledge and input, we decided to purchase a condominium on the near northeast side of Milwaukee. From our initial contact with Annette until closing (and beyond) Annette has been an EXCEPTIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENT to work with. She always returned our calls promptly and answered our questions truthfully. Annette was always very professional, courteous, thorough, knowledgeable of the real estate process and non-pressuring to make a sale.

It is our belief that if you are looking for a home in the Milwaukee area, you cannot go wrong in choosing Annette Ferrara Backes as your real estate agent.
