Donald and Michelle K.It was a pleasure to work with Six Lakes Realty. Nathan Weinhold made it possible for us to find the perfect home. Nathan went out of his way to answer all our questions and believe us, there were a lot. Nathan also made the process very easy for us and gave us valuable information and guidance from the very start to our closing. We are very pleased as a buyer to have chosen Six Lakes Realty and to have worked with your team at Six Lakes Realty. We will recommend you to anyone looking for property in the Chetek area. Thank you again for helping us make our dream home a realty.
Cheryl B.John Flor and the Team at Six Lakes Realty is a wonderful example as to how a Real Estate company should run. I listed my small cabin with John Flor and I knew I was doing the right thing. John’s customer service is second to none. Even if there was nothing to report he consistently called every month to check in. John is the best promoter of Chetek and his enthusiasm shows. The marketing that Six Lakes Realty uses is outstanding. I always felt my property was well exposed and marketed well. John has a lot of experience and enthusiasm and I felt confident I had picked the right person. I am glad when my property did sell that another Realtor in the Six Lakes office sold it. I went through a seamless closing and was kept informed every step of the way. As a former practicing Realtor, I would never hesitate to recommend John and his team for any real estate need. Their customer service, knowledge and experience is outstanding!
Tera and Luke B.Six Lakes Realty was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were in the market for a lake home and from the first meeting with Julie, she provided us with nothing but the most professional and enjoyable experience possible. All correspondence was answered quickly and we never felt 'lost in the shuffle'. Julie went above and beyond to help us find EXACTLY what we were looking for and once we found it, the closing process was a breeze. We would highly recommend Julie and the Lakeshore team to anyone looking for property in the Chetek area. Thank you Julie for helping us find a place where we will undoubtedly have a lifetime of great memories!
Bernard and Mary S.Thank you and your team for helping us sell the lot in Chetek. We are happy and so are the buyers, Bruce and his wife. As you are aware we had previously listed with 2 others and the difference was extreme. To me there were 3 big differences, first you took the time to correctly price it to sell, second, continual contact to update me on the status, and finally the success in completing the sale. Thank You.
Susan P.John Flor of Six Lakes realty recently sold our cabin near Weyerhauser WI after having listed it for almost two years in the worst real estate market down turn in our lifetimes. His professional skills, positive attitude and persistence led to a sale which satisfied buyer and sellers alike. The unexpected loops and turns on the way to closing were negotiated skillfully on our behalf, and resulted in good outcomes for all. I would not hesitate to recommend John Flor and his team to anyone seeking professional and ethical representation in their real estate transactions. He fulfilled and exceeded all expectations.
Angela B.It was a pleasure working with John Flor and his team to sell our home in Chetek. John was very approachable and easy to get a hold of. He answered all of my questions and helped us through the entire process. He is ethical and maintains a great relationship with other agents and agencies, which helped us greatly in the sale of our home.
Greg and April L.We are so glad we were able to work with Six Lakes Realty. Julie not only found us the most amazing property that was perfect for us, but she also made the process easy. Julie lead everything from start to finish and all went flawless. We are truly grateful and highly recommend Six Lakes Realty to anyone looking to buy property in the Chetek area. Thank you to Julie again.
