    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Hardworking, dedicated, knowledgeable, and yes strong-willed, are all words that can describe Lisa Kortens. Lisa came into the Real Estate industry after working 10 years in the Human Services industry with a Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Psychology from UW-Madison, and taking some time out of the career force to raise her family. Her passion for helping others and desire to run her own business brought her to begin a career in Real Estate in 2004. Helping people to make the best decisions for themselves and their families when buying or selling a home, keeping up with educational opportunities in the industry and utilizing the tools and training are of the utmost importance. You will find that not only is she professional, but she becomes your ally, your trusted partner and friend. A focus on building relationships, not transactions, is her goal.

    In 2008 Lisa found the perfect business partner in Tim Krause. Their skill sets are complimentary, and yes the humor and support they bring each other keeps them running! Just sit down with Tim and Lisa and you will understand their passion for providing their clients with the skills, professionalism and personalization every buyer and seller deserves, leaving them with the best real estate experience they could have hoped for.

    In Lisa's free time, she loves to spend time with her 3 children, husband, and of course their pup Bogey! She also loves to be outdoors biking, hiking, camping, boating, golfing or relaxing on the patio with a cold beverage on a warm sunny day! Spending any time with family and friends, hosting cookouts, making new recipes, and game days are always full of laughter and fun!

    Lisa was very helpful at helping me find the right home. She was always available for help and answered every question I had usually within minutes. She took care of everything along the way making home buying a stress free experience.

    I can't tell you how thankful our family is for Lisa assisting in our home purchase. In this crazy housing market it can be difficult to find the perfect home AND have a competitive edge. Lisa worked hard to ensure we had the best advantage and all the tools necessary to move forward. The process was seamless and easy. We would not be in our new home if it weren't for Lisa's hard work!!

    Lisa has helped us sell two houses and buy one in this crazy booming market. She is completely full service, from telling you what projects will help the sale of your home and what projects are not worth the investment. Both our homes got offers for more than we expected from qualified, serious buyers the first day on the market. Some would say that wasn't hard in this market, but even now not every house out there sells in a day. Through the whole selling process she was available at a moments notice and kept us informed of everything as it was happening. (Inspection, appraisal, closing) One of the best things about Lisa is she is part of a team, so even if she is on vacation or has another appointment, her partner fills in seemlessly as if he were your main realtor. When it comes to finding your new home, she will get you possibilities faster than any other system out there. And if you are interested in seeing them she can get you in them even if you work 12 hour shifts 5 days a week. When we found "the one" there were other offers on the table. She contacted the seller to let them know another offer was coming so they would wait before deciding. She then proceeded to help us write it immediately, pointing out things to include in the offer to better our chances of acceptance. Her expertise and dedication got us the house of our dreams in a crazy market against 3 other offers.

    Lisa and Tim were great to work with. Before we even started looking at houses, Lisa met with us to learn about what we were looking for, our budget, and areas that we were interested in. She set us up to receive regular emails that would feature homes that met our criteria. In addition, she completed a detailed market analysis of our home and gave us recommendations of things to do before we listed it. Lisa and Tim were both very patient and took us on numerous showings to homes that we were considering. We ended up finding our dream home, and Lisa assisted us with the offer and patiently responded to all of our questions and requests. They also listed our home, and we had a full-price offer within a couple of days. Lisa and Tim were great to work with, and I highly recommend them!

    Lisa Kortens recently helped me with my home purchase and she is the absolute BEST! The market was incredibly competitive while I was searching for a home but she was always available to view properties right when they hit the market. She helped me write the strongest offers possible and I ended up getting an accepted offer on my dream home. The home buying process had it's stressful moments, but Lisa was there to help me navigate every situation and she answered all of my questions to make me feel comfortable every step of the way. I am so grateful to Lisa for her expertise and I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks to her, I was able to buy the perfect home.

    Tom & Nicole gave Lisa 5 stars out of 5
    We could not have asked for anything better in Lisa & Tim! They were always 2 steps ahead and on top of everything. Lisa shared her personal opinion and expertise on fair pricing so we didn't overpay for the home we bought, and they exceeded any expectations on the selling price of the home we sold with them! Lisa is a very dedicated and passionate agent!

    Alex gave Lisa 5 stars out of 5
    Lisa was amazing to work with. As a first time buyer she helped me find my dream home and explained everything I needed to know perfectly. She was also great with negotiations in the very competitive climate I was buying in. If I ever plan to buy or sell in the future I wouldn't work with anyone besides her.
    Response from Lisa
    Thank you Alex! You know I'll always have your back! :)
