Are All Real Estate Agents Good at Their Job?

RE/MAX Shine – Jefferson County, WI ☀️
5.0 stars, repeatedly praised for Professionalism, Responsiveness, Quality, and Value
“I cannot tell you enough wonderful traits about Adriane and her RE/MAX Shine team. I was very hesitant about buying and selling in this market…Then came Adraine. 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

It took some time to find what we were looking for but Jeff was always at the showings before we were, with research on the property and neighborhood.

The Powers team’s ability to address things that came up in the course of the transactions was impressive. Their professionalism and attention to detail was remarkable. Suzanne, Gretchen, Sam and Nikki were there for me every step of the way handling and anticipating items that surfaced. I am now happily settled in my new house and loving it!
