I highly recommend Bill Minett and his crew at the Real Estate Company in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I was the personal representative of my mother’s estate, putting me in the position of selling the family farm. I not only had the normal contingent of my spouse and adult children looking over my shoulder, but now I had several beneficiaries of the estate (siblings, nephews and nieces) looking over my shoulder too. To make matters worse I reside 300 miles from the property. Not a pleasant situation to be in. I interviewed four brokers, each highly recommended, but choose Bill for two main reasons. First his marketing plan was different than the other brokers. Bill offered to do the same things the other brokers did, but established access to and utilized other marketing outlets which made me more confident Bill could sell the farm for the highest price in at least the same time period, if no…

I highly recommend Bill Minett and his crew at the Real Estate Company in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.

I not only had the normal contingent of my spouse and adult children looking over my shoulder, but now I had several beneficiaries of the estate (siblings, nephews and nieces) looking over my shoulder too. To make matters worse I reside 300 miles from the property. Not a pleasant situation to be in. I interviewed four brokers, each highly recommended, but choose Bill for two main reasons. First his marketing plan was different than the other brokers. Bill offered to do the same things the other brokers did, but established access to and utilized other marketing outlets which made me more confident Bill could sell the farm for the highest price in at least the same time period, if not sooner, than the other brokers. The second reason was that Bill had experience in developing land and suggested doing several things that would make the property more appealing to a developer. This turned out to be much like staging a residential sale, but of vacant farm land. The property sold and at a very good price. Along the way Bill did a great job handling the big picture things - like choosing other professionals to help stage the property, analyzing the qualification of potential buyers and negotiating with the eventual buyers. His staff also did a very nice job with the details, such as gathering information on the property, taking pictures, keeping me up to date on inquires and showing, and of course the details of all the paperwork. If I had it all to do over again, I’d choose Bill. You should too.

A true expert in his field, Bill Minett, worked with us to find the right house on just the right lake. His in-depth knowledge of homes and communities within the lakes area helped us to compare the many locales we were considering. Especially endearing, is Bill's approach as a friend backed by the full support staff of his entire team at the Real Estate Company. Everyone was truly personable, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful in providing timely, detailed guidance for our home purchase. From our initial meeting with Bill, right on through the house hunt to the inspections, paperwork, and closing, Bill and his team were always there for us providing endless, timely support and guidance. I recommend Bill and the Real Estate Company as truly the most ideal, reliable, knowledgeable, and helpful real estate company to work with.

We have worked with Bill Minett and his team multiple times over the past 29 years. I have never met anyone who knows the area better. We needed the guidance of an agent that knew the area well and what the housing market was doing to sell our home. His advice is always worth listening to. I can’t say enough about the Minett team- they kept us organized, all the way from staging the house to making sure that we had everything done for the closing. They are professional and very kind and polite at the same time. They were all very supportive during stressful times! I would highly recommend listing with the Minett team in the Lake Country area! Good luck with the sale of your home!

Bill and his team are absolutely stellar. My girlfriend and I were first-time home buyers; not only did Bill find us the perfect home, but his guidance on structuring and timing the offer was also the key to us securing the home. Even in the highly competitive sellers' market of COVID, we were the first offer and it was accepted within 24 hours. Bill and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, specializing in the Lake Country area of Southeastern Wisconsin. They "held our hands" from start to finish. Communication was prompt and thorough. They were a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend seeking out Bill's firm as your real estate representative. You won't regret it!

Our property was not a typical one and deciding on a listing price was the first difficulty. Bill helped us choose a price that was competitive, yet acknowledged its value. He didn't low-ball the price just to make a quick sale. He did recommend price drops at strategic times, which resulted in several offers. We had 5 different offers, none were straightforward. Some were very unusual. He helped us to understand what the buyer was asking for, prodded us how to negotiate better, and protected our interests as if they were his own. And he did all of these things with a sense of humor. His staff is first class very helpful, friendly, and responsive.

Nicole Gillette and I were set up by chance, but it was definitely meant to be. My husband is deployed and she helped me navigate the home buying process. She served as another set of eyes, a reliable resource, a calming force for my anxious thoughts, as well as the comic relief I needed after jumping through hoops and conquering many challenges seen in a "hot market." Her positivity and persistence is definitely the reason why my husband and I have a house today. We are eternally grateful for Nicole and the help she has given us during this time.
