 In this installment of our series Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#3 of 6) we will talk about what to look for in selecting a commercial/Investment broker whether you are buying or selling commercial real estate. It's easy to see a lot of the great buys out there and there are many parts to the equation in buying or selling commercial real estate. When I sit down with a party that starts to pursue commercial avenues I ask them their needs and wants. I always recommend that they have a good attorney and accountant to talk to. I further ask them whether they are buying or selling how their accountant is going to structure the transaction, how they are going to finance the transaction and if I will be helping them find financing, and if th...

The topic today in Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#1 of 6) is finding the right agent to list your home. There are many real estate agents that are all too ready to list your home. There are a number of thoughts you need to entertain when hiring the right one. The first that comes to mind is the number of years they have been actively selling real estate, and do they sell or have they sold enough real estate to have gained lots of experience. The question is to ask them specific questions. I have put together a report entitled "The 19 Questions you must ask a real estate agent BEFORE you list your home". In this report are very specific questions that are to be asked to narrow the selection very fast. This saves lots of possible headach...

A townhouse is a style of construction, whereas condominium and co-op are types of ownership. A townhouse is basically a building or unit that shares a common wall with the building or unit next door. The walls are usually straight and entry is usually from the ground floor. Townhouses usually have two or more stories. A townhouse can be a style of condominium.  A condo is where you own the actual structure of the building jointly with the other members of the association, along with common areas such as swimming pools, tennis courts or other common areas. Individually, you own the airspace and interior of the structure, but not the building itself. You and the other members of the association own the structure together. A co-op is where you own shares of a corporation or organization ...

When you live in Wisconsin and looking at the Oconomowoc Wisconsin Real estate for sale you pretty much know we have our pride. We love our Waukesha County Lakes and Waukesha County Lake Homes, we love the Waukesha County farms and all Wisconsin farms, we love the Spring/Summer season, and we love the Fall/Winter season, but there is a third season that just makes Wisconsin a legend in football. That is Packer season and the Green Bay Packers. It's serious stuff here and one can often hear church services ending with "I know everyone is praying for the Packers today"or even the Pastor or the priest at the end of a service saying "Go Pack". This is a religion itself. Tailgating, parties, Packer Sunday, and if you are really lucky the pilgrimage where one makes the trip to Lambeau field i...

  Off to Widmers to stock up on cheese and meet the Master Cheese Maker - Joe Widmer, Widmer's Cheese Cellars Entering Widmer's Cheese Cellars in the tiny town of Theresa, Wis., is like stepping back in time. Adorned with the flags of Swiss cantons on the outside, the plant inside affords visitors a close-up look at the making of some of the Dairy State's best, most classic cheese varieties. Just a step down from a small retail area sits the "make room," its traditional open vats being carefully tended, curds being stirred or hand-scooped into forms, or the famous Widmer bricks being gently placed atop the forms to press the whey out of the signature Brick cheese. The plant itself, purchased by the Swiss immigrant John O. Widmer in 1922, has been home-literally-to three generations of W...

Few know that the impact the dairy business in Wisconsin has on the state's economy is more than twice that of the citrus industry's impact on Florida's economy and nearly nine times the economic impact as Idaho's potato industry?Dairying in Wisconsin is not just another industry among many, but the industry that's made Wisconsin famous. It is the one industry that defines us in the eyes of our fellow Americans and in the minds of people from around the world. Wisconsin has been aninternational leader in dairy and cheese technology for more than 150 years.  Dairy farming and cheesemaking date back more than 160 years, before Wisconsin was even granted statehood in 1848. In fact, Wisconsin's first cheesemakers were farm wives who, in the 1830s, began making cheese in their kitchens as a ...

                  There used to be a day that one would show up at their desk each week and between the MLS books and the desk phone you made things happen.  You stepped out of the box, you defined and invented yourself, you worked hard, and if you were successful you deserved to get paid. Well, to tell you the truth it has not changed much. You show up for the game prepared physically and mentally. You block out all the bad energy and objects that you know are not productive and never will be and you work your game plan. Sure times have changed. We have the Internet and if we are wise we have developed a system of viral marketing that enhances our business something fierce. We have enhanced our telephone techniques second to now, and when we cold call ( yes, I cold call everyday. Ask a...
