Top Real Estate Agents in Wisconsin

Answering the question “Who is the best real estate agent in Wisconsin?” is tough. So many of the websites out there that “rank” agents and offices require firms to pay to be considered, making the information skewed. But you’re likely not looking for which realtors pay the most to show up in ads and rankings. You’re wondering who guides the most people to the closing table and helps them get closer to their dream home? Who gets honest raving reviews from past clients for their responsiveness, professionalism, and value?

In this article, top Wisconsin real estate agents and offices are listed using a variety of sources, including:

  • some sites where agents pay to be considered 
  • data of the number of closed transactions in the MLS
  • Google real estate agent and office reviews

This will help guide you to some of the top Wisconsin real estate agents in your desired area and help you find a great match.

How Many Real Estate Agents Are In Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s population is estimated at 5,895,908 (U.S. Census Bureau). As of April 2021, the Wisconsin REALTORS Association (WRA) represents more than 17,500 members, including real estate agents, brokers, appraisers, inspectors, bankers, and other professionals involved in real estate. But let us be frank: not all real estate agents are great at their job.

Some agents are strong in business, negotiation, and sales; others are great listeners, researchers, and problem solvers, yet others are disorganized and unprofessional. So finding the right real estate agent is important because an agent can greatly impact your buying or selling experience. We hope the information below helps you find the best real estate agent in Wisconsin for you!

We were fairly new to the area and Marueen showed us different neighborhoods and what they had to offer…She worked around our schedule to get us showings. We never felt pressured to buy any house…We felt like Maureen and her colleagues truly had our best interest at heart and they spent so much time with us…In the end, Maureen and her team helped us find our perfect home and we could not be happier.” -Google Review

RE/MAX Shine – Jefferson County, WI

Her persona confident, cool, positive…Her team came in and helped declutter the room I had been putting off and staged the house beautifully…Sadly our dream house we were looking to buy fell through…During this process Adriane was completely positive, calm, and collective; reassuring when the time was right everything would move and fall into place…and it did. I cannot credit her and her team enough for being professional, hard working, motivated, calm, collective, overall just amazing! Hands down I recommend Adriane and her RE/MAX Shine team to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home or property. She is an amazing person and business woman and helped our dream come true.” -Google Review

Top Real Estate Agents in Wisconsin

According to Real Trends, a site that ranks real estate agents individually and by teams, by volume, 5 of the top real estate agents in Wisconsin are:

  1. Justin Ippoliti from Shorewest Realtors in Greenfield, WI

  3. Mary Gilbank Peterson from Shorewest Realtors in Janesville, WI

An agent must have closed at least 50 sides of transactions or closed $20 million in sales volume in a calendar year. So, it’s no doubt the agents on this list are great realtors. However, there are likely other top realtors in Wisconsin who may not be on this list simply because they did not submit an application and fee.

Nonetheless, according to Newsweek, the Wisconsin real estate agents who closed the largest number of transactions in 2020 were:

  1. Keith Krepline from Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group in Brillion, WI
  2. Justin Ippoliti from Shorewest Realtors in Greenfield, WI
