#1 among Madison area Realtors!
My strong work ethic started on a dairy farm in Grantsburg, Wisconsin where I grew up. Music, specifically the piano, and history were my two main focuses through college at UW-Madison, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa. (Go Bucky!)
Shortly after college, I found that real estate was my true calling, so my brother and I operated Stauter Realty Services. So much has changed over the years, but the one constant has been the joy that I have every time I sell a home, or help a family find a new home to fit their changing needs. One area where I tend to excel is with homes that are challenged, or that have been listed with another agent that wasn’t able to sell the home. My approach with homeowners is honest and forthright, and I continue to love what I do every single day!
When not working with buyers and sellers, you will often find me behind a piano. I paid my way through college as a supper club pianist, and even though it’s no longer a paying gig for me, it’s still a hobby that I love. Be sure and ask me about my latest recording!
