About

About me: as a former co-owner and operations manager of an area manufacturing business for 25 years, I have extensive experience and knowledge in sales, marketing, and client services. Prior to that I spent 3 years in lending and finance with a major Chicago bank. For the last 25 years I’ve also been a professional portrait painter, which has given me more experience in client service and satisfaction. My knowledge of this community has come from serving on many Boards, among them the Lake Geneva School Board and currently the Advisory Board of Aurora University at its Lake Geneva campus. My professional associations include the Lakes Area Realtors┬« Association, the Wisconsin Realtors┬« Association, the National Association of Realtors┬«, council of Residential Specialists, and I have earned my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) , and CHMS (Certified Home Marketing Specialist), RSPS (Resort and Second Home Property Specialist) and Certified New Home Specialist. My first year in real estate I was top “rookie of the year” of 7 Keefe offices, and no rookie has ever topped my first year sales volume. For the past five years I’ve been in the top 20% of my company in sales, specializing in lakefront, condominium, and residential properties.

As a 38-year resident of Lake Geneva, I have a comfortable familiarity with the lakes area and its neighborhoods, schools, and businesses. This knowledge can be very helpful in finding a home that’s right for you and your family. For school information and Chamber of Commerce offices, click on “Community info” above.

Once you find some homes you would like to see, let me coodinate everything ….from showing to closing. Through Multiple Listing Service, I can show you any listed home; it’s not necessary to work with many agents at different companies. Let me do the running!

If you have a home to sell, I’ll do a free market analysis to determine the best price for you. Keefe Real Estate has been in the business of selling homes for over 60 years, and has consistently been the leading real estate company in Walworth County since 1943, with 48% of all properties sold in the county in 2013. With over 85 agents in 7 offices, your home will receive top exposure to the market.
