"We were very happy working with Jeff Shadick. He is very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with and familiar with the market. He made the entire process of selling our home a very easy experience for us. We will definitely use Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Special Properties again and would highly recommend Jeff to anyone selling or looking to purchase a home."
"They work hard for you whether you are the buyer or the seller. Very nice people and easy to work with. I sold my home through them and used them to find my new home. No pressure to do anything and gave helpful suggestions."
"Eileen and her team were sensational to work with! At every turn in our property listing process Eileen was communicative and creative in her approaches to list and showcase our property. She knows the Green Lake market and is connected with local business and civic organizations."
"Sarah is fun to work with, she knows all the right people. She is very responsive when we reached out, and regularly checked in with us. She is confident and trustworthy."
We enjoyed working with Bianca. She gave us open and honest answers to our questions. Her knowledge of the area was extremely helpful to bring comfort to our decision. She made herself available when we needed her. Excellent follow through. Would recommend her!
"I would highly recommend Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Special Properties to anyone buying or selling a home, lot or business. They have sold 3 homes and 2 businesses for us. They are all very professional in every aspect. You cannot go wrong when working with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Special Properties!"
"Mike Ertmer of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Special Properties was very attentive to our needs to sell our rental property. Our phone calls, texts, and emails were always replied to in a very timely manner. He was available at all hours, day or night. Mike was always available whenever we had a question or concern, and had professional suggestions for how to approach any and all issues that came up throughout the process. We would recommend Mike to anyone needing a first class real estate professional. The sale of our property couldn’t have been any easier, from our perspective."
"Mike was an excellent realtor. He was very knowledgeable about the area and extremely helpful in negotiating our deal. He always responded quickly to our requests. I would highly recommend him for any real estate deals."
Being in an extremely demanding and high pace industry I’ve come to expect the slower pace of other industries and have come to accept that kind of customer service as a norm. We met Mike Ertmer only a few weeks ago and we can say he is not the norm. I’m extremely impressed with his work ethic, professionalism, and extreme detail in making sure he knows what you are looking for, so that you’re time isn’t wasted when you are looking to invest in a home. His attention to detail is impeccable and he knows what his clients are looking for. We have an offer in as we speak and are looking for a positive outcome. Don’t continue to look. Call Mike he’ll look for you! Thanks again Mike. Hard work pays off.
“My wife and I were looking for a place to get away with our young family. Bianca listened to our wants and needs and helped formulate a search that showed us new properties in a timely manner as they came onto the market. As we went through various properties, she continued to adjust the search parameters to help identify possible properties. Since Bianca grew up in the Princeton/Green Lake area, she was a wealth of knowledge as to what the area offers, which areas would most interest us, and how to approach purchases in the area. Bianca went above and beyond for us as we looked for, and ultimately found, a wonderful property that fit our needs. She never pressured us to make an offer; instead, she would answer our questions and insisted that the property be “right” for us prior to making an offer. We recommend anyone searching for a new property in the Princeton/Green Lake area utilize Bianca. She made the process fun!”

Bianca was exactly who we needed to help find our next home! She was patient with us and got to know us very well and what we were looking for. She knew before we did what we'd like or dislike about a property. Bianca did her best to meet us somewhere with little notice; she understands how aggressive this market is. We appreciated her being down to earth, not being pushy, and we felt that she sincerely wanted what was best for us and wasn't just trying to "make it happen". We ADORE her sense of humor and that she treated us like family. I was a realtor in the past and understand the dynamics of finding the right home for your buyers. Your relationships are what make you successful and your clients feel that their realtor has their best interest at heart. This is EXACTLY who Bianca is and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to help find your next home.
"Eileen was the perfect partner for us on our quest to sell our beloved Ripon home we had owned/ loved for 42 years. She accurately profiled the market dynamics at our price point and deployed all viable resources to reach motivated buyers. A tireless advocate for the value driven by the quality of life in this geographical area, Eileen inspired an ongoing sense of optimism in all through each step of the process :) Her willingness to help with even minute details was greatly appreciated."
We worked with Mike Ertmer to find the perfect home on Green Lake. We were very specific in what we wanted in a market that was very tight. Mike listened to us and learned what we were looking for. Over a period of many months, he was able to help us narrow our search. Mike was very patient during the process and gave us great advice. He never tired of showing us possibilities and always stayed on top of the market. Because of Mike’s hard work we ended up with our perfect home. We would not have found our lake home without Mike’s guidance. We highly recommend Mike Ertmer to anyone looking for a home in the area.
Bianca is the person you want to assist you in finding your perfect place in the Green Lake area. She kept in close contact with us and well informed about the steps we needed to go through in our purchase of vacant land. If you want a realtor to work in your best interest, Bianca Curtis is the best choice !
During the purchase of our special lot and sale of our long time home, it became apparent what an outstanding real estate professional we had chosen. Jeff always put our interests first instead of thinking about making the sale. Jeff's attention to detail was excellent and made things easy and uncomplicated. It’s rare in this day and age to find someone in business who is not only at the top of their profession, but can also be a good friend.
Bianca sold a unique farm property for me in rural Wisconsin. She was great. She did what she said she would do every time. I will absolutely use her again in the future.
