Get to know Gail Braatz
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Gail Braatz and I live and work in Waukesha County. My home is located about twenty to twenty five miles from downtown Milwaukee, yet I have the peace and serenity that seems priceless that comes with living in the Lake country. I watch my son Spencer grow and everyday appears as another adventure. Being twelve years old he has developed quite the personality. I am so proud of the teachers that make up Waukesha County's schools. They are truly second to none. These blue ribbon schools turn out some of the brightest young minds and the faculty of these learning establishments instill good morals and values in the kids.
I love that this county has something to do or enjoy literally minutes away. We just don't have neighbors, we have friends. People genuinely look out for each other and care for one another. The beauty of the lakes, the beaches, nature and hiking trails, outstanding restaurants, libraries, bike trails, festivals, fairs, houses of worship; it is all right here in Waukesha County. The lake country where I live in is charming. The lakes are only minutes from each other. We can go from Lake Nagawicka and all its splendor in Delafield and Nashotah to Ottawa Lake which is in the Wales,Dousman.Ottawa area. How pristine are the waters.
Often in the Delafield/Wales/Hartland/Oconomowoc regions we have art shows, dances, festivals, and endless gala events designed for the young as well as the young at heart, and charming outings and events for all ages.
I approach my profession with enthusiasm, and I do what I do best with passion. I love Real Estate and I make so many new friends, as well as enjoy the group I have made from 14 years of selling Real Estate. Even my son gets involved putting information and doing computer work with me. Spencer's dad Tom is a well known Commercial and Investment Broker, and he makes comments quite often how happy I am, and how deeply involved I am in making sure that my customers and clients are always taken care of. This extends far past any closing, and I enjoy watching their kids grow and enjoying the area. A lot of these kids go to the same school that my son goes to.
I have a large base of knowledge of e-commerce, websites, blogging, and just about any technical means of doing work in cyberspace, yet my approach of enjoyment lends to never having to replace that warm smile I see everytime I am shaking a new friends hand at closing. I enjoy helping people find that perfect home, and it gives me a feeling like no other when the newly married couple sheds a tear of joy walking into thier first home.
I would very much enjoy selling your home and seeing it to a successful closing. I have a simple yet common sense approach for my home marketing program. It is selling the property for the highest dollar, in the least amount of time, and with the fewest possible objections or difficulties. Of course, with each property comes a unique game plan and sales approach for marketing. It may involve video or audio tours which I can have at someones fingertips anywhere in the free World in minutes, response generated marketing ( ask me about this and find out what others should know, but don't ) state of the art marketing and tracking abilities, consistent and highly professional communication and follow up. I love selling homes.
I just as much as selling love finding people homes. I have highly sophisicated avenues of finding and obtaining homes for our customers. Some may never even get on the market but only for a one party listing.
I take pride in the MLS, but I have an amazing ability to find the perfect home, and I never lose track of any task also involved in a transaction. These may be special needs, proximately to highways, financing, and everything that goes with the make up of such an important investment.
Gail Braatz's Blog Posts
With fourteen wonderful and enjoying years of Residential Real Estate I have closed many properties; Farms, Lake properties, townhouses, duplexes, condominiums, and more.
Get out of the box if you would. I am very good at selling and buying single family homes, as well as duplexes.
We are always on the watch to make sure that we get the best possible return from out initial investment. Often, people tend to forget about the appreciation of the property. The appreciation in a property is what makes it worth more in the future, The hidden bank account if you will. It is important to note that this applies to the same single family and duplex I sell to a new friend.
