THE BEST AT ANY PRICE

I get it; it maybe seems like this job is easy. To be just ‘okay’, sure, sometimes. But do you want just okay? No. This is the rare occasion where excellent can cost no more than mediocre.

Karl Zarling and the Jay Schmidt Group of Keller Williams bring considerable value to our clients. Consistently being great is hard work. You're skilled in your line of work; we are, too. I've sold hundreds of homes, all different shapes and sizes, prices, and locations. You shouldn't choose me to remove your gall bladder, but I'm very much the right guy where it comes to selling your house, or helping you work through and negotiate the purchase of a new one. Or both, which requires a different kind of finesse.

I'm proud of my track record. Jump over to 'Reviews' and read what a bunch of my clients have to say about it, or just click on this Zillow link for more reviews, some sales history, and my 5-star rating. Don’t settle. Work with the best.

Finally, scroll down for a little more detail on selling vs buying.

FOR SELLERS - PROVEN SUCCESS AND GREAT VALUE

So, you're looking to sell. Or maybe you're not quite sure. Let's talk, no pressure, and no charge. You'll appreciate that I shoot straight and mean what I say. If you have a bad taste in your mouth from another agent or past event, I think I can help fix that.

This selection of the listing agent and team to represent your home and your interests really is important. I've seen how people sometimes choose a Realtor®: the name was familiar, or Uncle Ed says he's a nice guy. Some people pick the prettiest girl on a company's roster page. I’m going to lose that one! But over the years I've earned a reputation for providing great outcomes. I'll think, communicate, market, negotiate, inform, protect, and work hard and smart for you. You want to sell your place and net the most on it? Me, too, that's a fact. And I get around; I like to focus around Lake Country but I've worked throughout SE Wisconsin, from Waupun to Racine and all over in between.

In the past, hiring me was smart. Great. Easy. But now I have the backing and full support of the Jay Schmidt Group. Number one in the state. And Keller Williams is an exciting, high tech real estate firm that spares no expense in putting your home sale first. Which means YOU WIN. This is one area of business where working with the best costs no more than hiring someone mediocre. Save yourself the regret, and work with the best…it's not at all about sticking a sign in the yard, taking nice pictures, and putting it on MLS. Yes, you must do those things - that's the bare minimum. There is so very much more to it, more than I could ever put in writing here. Let’s chat, and I’ll answer any question you have, and some important ones you might not think to ask!

BUYERS - GET THE RIGHT PERSON IN YOUR CORNER

Whether you're looking for a move-up property or a first home purchase, a relocation, or a lake house or second home, you'll appreciate having me on your side. In the course of listing so many homes for sale I've really learned how to help buyers, because I understand what the seller (and their agent) is looking for from a buyer...and believe it or not, it's usually not as simple as just more money. Especially in this very competitive market, you'll really benefit by having this kind of experience in your corner, having an agent that knows how to get his buyers to the top of the stack.

Many of you are very comfortable with and good at searching the web for properties and narrowing down the list. Where people really see my value is in evaluating places, sorting it out, and using this knowledge in the offer process, negotiating and working toward our successful closing, And of course making sure you're protected along the way. You'll see that I make your purchase top priority. Once we identify the place you really want, I'll work hard to make it yours, with terms that work for you.

So put away the image of a guy just trying to sell you something. I know a lot about homes, but in most cases the house will speak to you, it'll sell itself, to you or maybe your spouse. Part of my job is to make sure the place you're falling in love with really is a good fit, and to help you make an informed, smart purchase. I'm not really selling. I'm informing, and advising, and if it feels like the right one, we'll go after it and get it.
