As a young, growing family, there were several key things that we were looking for when choosing a real estate agency:
- Finding the home of our dreams
- Getting top dollar for our home
- Working with a partner who would make this experience as low-stress as possible
What we never could have imagined when be began this process, was that there is an agency out there who could not only deliver on these things, but exceed them- and more (who else can you say that about these days?). We initially chose Powers Realty because of their impeccable reputation from the North Shore of Milwaukee. We had heard great things about the agency and we knew they had only the very best brokers on staff.
From the onset of this process, every single detail was handled with the utmost care and urgency. We were always made to feel as if we were the most important client they had.
The superior knowledge of their brokers was evident from day one. We were working with the excellent realtor, George Folliard, who was based out of the Shorewood office. We asked him not only to find us a house in Lake Country (Hartland), which he did with stunning efficiency, but also to sell our house in Wauwatosa. You simply will not find an agency who has that kind of wide-ranging expertise anywhere else in the state of Wisconsin.
Our house in Wauwatosa was sold in under two days on the market for the full asking price. Of course, this made us extremely happy, but it was all the work that went into it that made us true believers in Powers. From the staging services and decorating advice provided by Powers, right down to a list of seven recommended neutral paint colors, to the amazingly talented photographers they partnered with, our house was sure to present itself as well as possible to the market.
They also brought in two experts on our specific neighborhood in Wauwatosa to validate what and formalize our sales and marketing plan. This was all done prior to the listing going active, otherwise known as "the sign going in the yard". The greatest thing about this was, by the time the sign did go up, we were relaxed and confident in the process. We were right. Our house sold in under two days. As a family with two young children, you cannot put a price on that peace-of-mind and stress reduction.
Whatever your priorities are when it comes to buying and selling your home, we can unequivocally say that there is no agency better suited to exceed your expectations that Powers. We truly feel there is no better partner to work with anywhere in the state of Wisconsin.
