Our four areas of expertise
Advice you can trust
Effective communication greatly increases our ability to negotiate on your behalf, the buyer. It comes from listening and understanding, and allows people that are part of the buying process to properly exchange ideas. We begin with a thorough understanding of your unique needs and standards. Next, we will suggest only the homes that are best suited to your requirements. If you’re out of town, that might involve pre-viewing homes on your behalf.
Our collective market knowledge of the Tomahawk area is unsurpassed and we continually visit properties to build on this knowledge. We study the market daily and are always reviewing the MLS® for new listings and updates. Our expert home valuation skills ensure that you’re receiving the best possible value. It’s our goal to find you the perfect home or vacation property and, throughout the buying process, you can count on Northwoods Community Realty to be a source of encouragement and innovation to help you reach your goal. Your complete satisfaction with our buyer representation service is our number one priority.

Did you know that a REALTOR® is required to work for you with “fiduciary duty“? That means we are legally obligated to manage your new home purchase with the same care and attention that we would give to our personal transactions. It’s also known as The Golden Rule, which we all know as “treat others the way you would want to be treated yourself”. At Northwoods Community Realty, your best interests are first, always. We’re privileged to do our very best for you.

Positive attitude and a genuine enthusiasm for house hunting
Why Choose Northwoods Community Realty?
As REALTORS® we have the special resources to make searching for a home easier and more efficient. Software provided by the Northwoods Association of Realtors® and the National Association of Realtors® allow us to set-up customized filters based on your individual needs and wants. Each day, the software scans the MLS® looking for your new home and sends a notice to the Realtor® you have chosen to work with. You can receive a copy of these listings by subscribing to a client services program, which will allow you to see new and sold listings. Each week, our office tours the new listings in the area and we’re able to talk with the listing agent and see first hand what a property looks like. If there is a property we think you would like, it’s an opportunity to see it right away.
Having someone on your side when negotiating a price is very important. Sometimes the listing agent will ask you to agree to “dual agency”, where he acts for both parties and earns two commissions. We always tell our clients that it’s like using the other party’s lawyer – why would you do that when our services are free of charge? It’s important to note that the seller’s agent is a trained professional in negotiating and will use their skills to get the highest price for their client. When we negotiate on your behalf, you’re able to step back from the process without being exposed to aggressive bargaining or words that might cause you to reflect on the process of the sale rather than looking forward enjoying your new home. We’ll also get the best price possible and save you money!
Buying a home can be an exciting but sometimes overwhelming experience. The agents in our office help people buy homes almost every day so we’re also the best ones to coordinate the sales process while you concentrate on moving preparations. We’ll take care of the title and lien searches, arrange a home inspection, and work with the seller’s agent to handle all the details. You may want an introduction to a mortgage broker, which we can arrange. Our office has relationships with a select few professionals who we feel are trustworthy and have integrity. Please note that we cannot accept referral fees or commissions from the professionals involved in the exchange process so you can be assured that my loyalty is to serving you.
Jackie was nothing but available, professional and patient during my SEVEN YEAR search for a vacation home in Tomahawk. I think we saw every home on Lake Nokomis in that years-long process! Once we found the property she helped me to get it closed, despite a difficult seller’s agent. For all your real estate needs, Go With Jackie!
