We knew that the housing market was going to take a downturn and that there would be many homeowners who would need help to survive the decrease in the value of their homes.


We wanted to be sure that we learned the very best way to help people from the "highest and best" source of information in the country. We attended a course in Florida and became designated Certified Distressed Property Experts (CDPE). This is known in real estate as the best source of education for Realtors to learn how to help people who are experiencing a hardship.

It’s important to understand what constitutes a hardship. Please see our tab on our homepage labeled Hardship and see if any of these situations define the one you find yourself in presently.

We have decades of successful experience in real estate. There are many Realtors who claim to know how to help distressed homeowners, but only a handful who have documented successful experience. We don't just say we can help...we
DO help and our professional assistance is at no cost to you!

In addition to successful experience and our CDPE designation, we are also the only Realtor member of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin. Lawyers practicing family and estate law throughout southeastern Wisconsin refer couples to us for sale of their real estate.

The sooner they call, the more options there are available to assist during this difficult time. Know that you are not alone and that many people throughout the country and in your own area are facing this same problem.
