About Jean

I’m a seasoned, full-time professional, and I’ll work hard on your behalf.  I’ve lived here in Gordon for over fifteen years, and I know the area well.  But I’ll always be equally attuned to the needs of buyers and sellers from elsewhere. Whether you’re buying or selling…  I’ll be here to guide you at every step of the way, and I’ll make sure the process is as smooth and frustration-free as possible.

Already familiar with the area, my husband and I finally moved here from the Twin Cities several years ago. We found a great neighborhood on a great lake, and we have some great neighbors. We count our blessings every day to live in this beautiful area.

Thinking of buying?  If this is a place you’d like to call home, too, then I’d be happy to help you find the cabin, lake home, or recreational land that’s right for you.

Thinking of selling?  When you list with me you’ll enjoy these important benefits:

  •  Strategic pricing that’s based on a thorough, up-to-the-minute market analysis. Rather than relying on instinct or guesswork, I prefer to help sellers make a sound, rational pricing decision that’s based on the best available information.  Here’s why:  If our price is too low, we leave money on the table.  If our price is too high, we leave your home on the market unsold.  Later, it’s likely to sell for less than it would if we priced it correctly from the start.  No one should have to experience that.  If we price your home correctly right from the very beginning, it’s more likely to get noticed and sell more quickly for the best possible sale price.  So even if you’re not the analytical type, all my analysis and number-crunching has a real payoff for you as a seller.
  • Magazine Quality Real Estate Photography. Buyers have lots of options; it can be tough to decide on a short list of homes they feel are worth seeing in person.  Great photos increase the odds that your home will make the cut.  In the old days, everyone talked about “curb appeal.”  Online, better photos are the modern equivalent.  Check out my listings for examples of the magazine-quality photography that will help your property stand out from the crowd.  Then compare them to the murky snapshots accompanying most Realtors’ listings.  The difference is more than just artsy or technical, and it’s a difference that really matters. To learn more, and to see a few examples right now, check out my Great Photos page.
  •  The Power of Social Media and Internet Marketing. Today’s buyers are more connected than ever, and 95% of them begin their real estate shopping online.  I know how to leverage social media and market effectively on the internet, today’s #1 marketing tool.  You can find me and my listings at the Edina Realty website; on all three of our region’s MLSs (more about that in a moment); at my own personal real estate website and blog, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; at secondary sites like Trulia, Zillow, and Realtor.com; and more.
  •  A Realtor who’s experienced enough to know the ropes, and yet curious and creative enough to never stop learning and innovating. While you’re here, take a moment to learn more about how all that innovative marketing can benefit you. You’ll also find lots of great information about up-north real estate, northwest Wisconsin communities, our northern lakes and rivers, fishing and hunting information, little-known paddling spots, favorite NW WI biking and hiking routes, and more. Later, be sure to check back often for fresh blog posts and new information about northern Wisconsin real estate—especially lake homes, cabins, and waterfront property.While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel.
