Veterans Day  is November 11th, 2009, this Wednesday.The other night I was watching another Ken Burn special on PBS entitled "The War" A phenomenal documentary following World War II and the people, the soldiers, the world.

In the Waukesha County real estate market and the rest of Wisconsin, and the United States people know that freedom came with a price, a commitment, and a sacrifice.Whether you are a veteran from World War II, Vietnam, the Gulf War, the Nicaraguan war, and any war or conflict for that matter I thank you for allowing me to have the freedom I do have, and the ability to walk, talk, and interact in ...

Blog; the mere word I would have never been able to tell you what it meant just a few years ago. By accident I stumbled upon an article in a NAR publication about the impact of social networking. Something clicked that day, and clicked in a big way. Prior to this I was your type of Waukesha County real estate agent that thought he was pro-active. Pro-active being set by a standard of opening my check book to enormous amounts of expenses to keep my website moving along, and letting people tell me it was all under control. It did not take long to realize that pro-active became synonymous with taking the bull by the horns and aiming and setting my goals in a linear fashion that would take me, my clients, and my business into a whole new direction in a light year fashion; make that warp dri...

The day I got into this business known as Real estate I walked into my new office in Hartland,Wisconsin wearing all my new gear. I do remember those cheap suits I bought to get me through the learning times and that I wanted to still be somewhat stylish. Funny, coming from a guy that was still putting streaks in his hair. I have always prided myself on being different and I would venture to say I am still a little abstract to this day. The good news is I still have that amazing passion to do my best for people. Back then it was the start of what I would hear about "sellers markets" and "buyers markets". One day I looked at all these people in my office and thought to myself "Guys, go out and make some sales. There are people that want to buy, and there are people that want to sell. You ...

In the Waukesha County Real estate market today will be a great day of prospecting; I can't get any stamps, nor can I go to my bank. Lots of businesses are closed and they are recognizing Columbus Day. I often wonder why we don't have an "Amerigo Vespucci Day" but I don't set the holidays. With that we wish everyone a great and productive Columbus Day. Real Estate for sale in Waukesha County is great for sellers or buyers; call me at 262-377-1459 or email me at tom@tombraatz.com. Columbus Day and it's history is defined by clicking here at Columbus Day  or The History of Columbus Day Wishing you a productive day, and see you at closing!

I wish I would have been ready for what is going on now, and has been for the last two years or so. I wish I would have had a crystal ball to see what a great buy I would have got on rental, Investment, and other commercial properties in Waukesha County and commercial property in Milwaukee county. I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard that in the last year. The beauty is I tell people that there are ways to purchase a great property, and there are even ways to start your own business if you have the game plan, mission statement, and experience that should accompany it. I remember helping a charming woman get into a building not too long ago. She wanted to start her own restaurant. Turns out she had been an executive chef for 38 years and was cooking for others. In a relative...

There are many wonderful Lake homes for sale in Waukesha County and lots of Waukesha County Lake property. Besides the Waukesha County Lake properties for sale there are many beautiful homes for sale in Lake Country that are not on the lakes in the Lake Country. What is the "Lake Country" Tom Braatz? Well, that is a great question and I am glad you brought it up. The Lake Country is known for its large number of lakes, and in the northwestern corner of Waukesha County it is often referred to as "Lake Country" by local residents. This includes Pewaukee, Delafield, Hartland, Merton, Nashotah, Chenequa, Okauchee Lake, Oconomowoc, Summit, and Lac La Belle. This time of year there is magic on the Lakes; they have a heart and pulse that truly is vibrant. To see whole families and individuals ...

 It is not uncommon these days to be driving along a country road and see the remnants of a one room school house. These are a lot more common than some think. Many of the brick one room school houses have been converted to single family homes. I always get a smile by looking at the cornerstone or cap print with the year it was built. Every so often I come into North Lake which is north of Hartland, Wisconsin and I see the same one room school house sitting there abandoned for years. It has been there for as long as I can remember and I know relatives that have past away now that had gone to school there. When you think of the makeup of school in Wisconsin and the history that existed in these school houses.These are everywhere in Wisconsin. From Washington Island to Lacrosse, to Sheboy...

Earlier when I was a kid there was a marvel of life about fireworks, barbecues, sparklers, and celebrating Independence day in Waukesha County and the 4th of July in the United States. The Waukesha County Real Estate market sees it's share of wonderful and grateful smiles that day. I see them all year with the people that show there love for this day. The cost of freedom and democracy, and the price that was and is paid for it means the same as it did then. People with deep faith did what they knew they had to do, and they knew it came with sacrifices and it did. Before I sold my summer home in Door County on Washington Island this was a holiday that was made to sit out in my boat and watch the fireworks from the Island. I can't help but think that my ex wife (never did like that term) ...
