What is a Buyer Agency?
Real estate agents may enter into a contract with a buyer that allows them to work in the best interest of that buyer. That agent is then considered a Buyer's Agent. Governed by the Wisconsin State statutes, real estate agents have a high level of responsibility to both parties in a transaction; but Buyer Agency provides higher levels of service to the buyer. The Buyer Agent's responsibility is to advise you rather than merely providing information. The Buyer Agent's primary responsibility is to the homebuyer.
How does this help me?
As your Buyer Agent I can advise you in all facets of the transaction because I am your representative. I can market you, the buyer, to listing agents in an effort to find you the property for which you are looking. Once a specific property is found I help you through the negotiations with my professional knowledge and skills.
What properties are involved?
As your Buyer's Agent I can represent you in real estate transactions involving virtually any property for sale in Door County. Welcome Home Realty is a member of the local multiple listing service which covers any MLS listing, and with "for sale by owner" or builder I am your representative.

I have lived most of my life in Door County but I have managed to also enjoy experiences outside of the County. After graduating High School I spent a year abroad as an exchange student in Germany. While there, I was able to travel extensively throughout Europe meeting new people and experiencing different cultures.
After studying German at the University of Wisconsin I went to work in the airline industry traveling to India, Asia and Europe. My experiences in travel have led me to be very adaptable in any social situation.
I have always enjoyed working in sales. My background is in hospitality, luxury goods and more recently in Insurance.
Outside of work I enjoy outdoor sports, recently conquering my first ½ Iron Man. The equestrian world is also a big part of my life and I love to watch my daughter compete in 3 Day Eventing.
