For more than a decade, I have owned investment real estate, been a resource to people buying, selling, managing, maintaining and renovating both single family homes as well as rental properties. My roots are in sales and marketing, giving me an in depth understanding of what messages, delivery methods and avenues will sell a home. I can also use these skills to help buyers truly understand the buying process minus the spin and uncover what really matters today, and years from now when the tables are turned and it is time to sell.
At the University of Wisconsin I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts and a concentration on Radio, TV and Film. Straight out of college, I joined local radio stations Entercom Communications as Account Manager, and eventual President’s Circle member, servicing a broad customer base while developing and implementing marketing campaigns. During my time there I completed the necessary courses in Home Inspection and to receive my Real Estate License and Broker’s License.
In April 2005, I joined a real estate firm with a friend and mentor. After working under and learning from a small number of brokerages, I landed myself here at Lauer Realty Group, working with local Realtors® like myself who focus on collaboration and functioning as a team in our real estate endeavors.
Home buying and selling, rental properties, fixer uppers, two-flats and home renovations; I have experience with it all. In 2008, I renovated a former two unit into a home for my family. In 2010, I completed the renovation of my first collaborative venture, a 4 unit owned by Deacon Housing LLC. In total I now own all, part of, or manage almost 30 units.
Home ownership, Real Estate Sales and Rental Property ownership has shown me a road to wealth and a career path that brings success not at the cost of others but in helping others achieve that same success. Whatever your location on this road, I can help you to your next exit. I look forward to working with you.
I’ve lived in Madison since relocating here for college in 1993 after attending Riverside University High School in Milwaukee. During my career I have achieved many personal milestones as well. In no particular order they include 2 beautiful daughters, Evelyn and Lola, being an active church member, and working with a group of like-minded individuals help run & organize Atwoodfest (a favorite summer festival on Madison’s east side).
