    • When Mom decided to move into an independent living facility, we had to get some quick help selling her home of 23 years in Wauwatosa. Friends recommended someone they knew who handled home sales as a side line, but we did some on-line research and found that we had better go to someone who sells homes every day, and lots of them. We quickly found that Jim Geracie and his wonderful Realty Executives team of home selling experts met this criteria, and after one meeting with Jim, we knew that Jim was the right guy to get the job done fast and right. Jim's wife Jill helped us prep and stage the house, found movers to rearrange furniture, and even provided color coordinated table settings for the kitchen table. We set a realistic asking price, got the house ready for showing in 2 weeks, and offered Sat/Sun/Mon showings with a Tuesday deadline for offers. Pretty gutsy move, I thought, but Jim assured us this was the way to stir up action on the sale. We had 3 solid offers by Tuesday and the best was $20,000 over asking price. Jim made sure the offers and counter-offers were all favorable for us, and protected our interests, leading to a solid final accepted offer. Haley, their talented closer, guided us through the inspections, required work to meet buyer demands, all the closing paperwork, and was with us at the closing just 30 days later. Mom's house is sold to a happy buyer, Mom is moved into her new home, and the family is very thankful for a smooth a quick sale.From start to finish, the Jim Geracie team showed us how to sell fast, get the best value for the home, and kept our stress levels low!I highly recommend the Jim Geracie Team to anyone selling their home in the Milwaukee area.

    • I have had the pleasure of using Jim Geracie and his team for my past three real estate transactions (2 buying & 1 selling). To say they performed exceptionally well is an understatement. When I sold my house in Wauwatosa, WI a few years ago I anticipated a lengthy sale as the market was a little cold and the house had a foot print only a mother could love....long story short....they had it under contract for sale in 4 days at 98% of my asking price. While securing a seller quickly was great....what really blew me away was Jim's dedication POST-closing on the duplex he helped me line up after I sold the Wauwatosa house. About a week after I closed on the duplex in Greenfield, I had a leak from the Attic AC/Furnace unit that ruined drywall, trim, molding and paint in 4 rooms that spanned both my unit and my tenants. When Jim gave me a buzz a week or two after closing to see how things were going...I mentioned the damage/recent events and was surprised at how thoroughly upset he was. Long story short, Jim took care of the issue on his own accord, reaching out to the seller (whom is a local flipper) and leveraged his professional reputation to get the seller to come in and fully repair not only the furnace/AC but all damage at no cost....I had estimates for the work compiled at the time and was looking at roughly $5,000 worth of repairs needing to be made. To have Jim go the extra mile personally and get involved above and beyond the scope of his duties even AFTER having already been paid, spoke volumes. He is not only a consummate professional but more importantly a man of great character.I'm confident in stating you wont find a better realtor than Jim in the Midwest. Him and his team will be the only ones I consider using as I move forward with future real estate ventures. Him and his team truly set the bar.

      - Myles Osswald
    • It was a wonderful experience working with Jim and his team. They provided excellent recommendations and specific names and contact numbers for improving or repairing things in the home to increase the likelihood of multiple offers. Which, I received three offers for my property, and was able to accept the best offer for our personal situation. His team responded immediately to any questions or concerns and made this process as smooth and simple as possible. Jim made it feel as if he was trying to sell his own home given the zeal and tenacity with which he approached selling mine. I hired Jim, I took his professional advice, he sold my home and I would hire him again. Thank you Jim, Katie & Haley

    • We are interviewing new realtors and thought we were done when Jim gave us call and asked to me with us. Our house was on the market for 11 months and we were losing hope that it would sale. Jim can in and was very trueful with on how to market our home. We did what his firm asked us to do to stage our home and Jim was able to sale it in less than a month.My wife and I would highly recommend them. They will take care of you from start to finish. A very happy client Gary N

    • I had a great experience with the Geracie team. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a house. I was a first time buyer and they were very helpful, and patient with me being new to the process. They made me feel very comfortable and confident with my decisions. They also didnt put any pressure on me to make a decision, which was very appreciated.

      - Steve
    • For the best team in real estate contact the Jim Geracie Team. They knew the real estate market in my area, helped me to price my house to sell quickly, staged my house to show at its best, and worked hard with prospective buyers to solidify an offer. They explained and walked me through every step of the home sale process. No questions or concerns were left unaddressed. Communication was excellent. I was constantly kept in the loop resulting in a very successful home sale.

      - Rose
    • We were very happy working with Jim Geracie and his team. They were flexible with us when we were home hunting. They worked through all the hurdles of our relocation company flawlessly. They also ensured an EARLY closing for us! I would definitely recommend them to anyone, buying or selling.

      - Jess McGurn
    • This is very professional team which provides the excellent service on all the steps of buying the house. Jim Geracie helped my son to buy the house. And my son has recommended him to me.

      - M Shtulberg
    • The Jim Geracie team was fabulous to work with. We were unfamiliar with both the market and the area since we were moving from out of state. The Jim Geracie Team helped us stay on top of the very competitive market and our Realtor Kristen was amazing to Skype with us through various homes while we were in another state and eventually find the perfect home for us

      - Brookfield Buyer
    • Jim and his team have helped us buy and sell 3 homes. The knowledge, speed and skill of each sale as well as responsiveness to our desires make Him and his team First Rate. I would highly recommend the Jim Geracie Team.

      - Timster
    • Jim was Very professional, really took the time to show our duplex sometimes multiply times a day. Whenever i needed answers, he took his time and patience with us to clarify any questions we had. He made a difficult time extremely comforting for us. Would definitely recommend his knowledgeable team. I know when I'm ready to sell again, he's on my list to call first. Thanks, Jim

      - Panda Bear 64
    • If you are looking for an outstanding realitor look no further. Jim and his professional staff will take care of every accept of the process for you. From start to finish you will be in good hands. We tried to sale our property twice with other realitors with no success. Jim and his staff made it happen. I my opinion they went way above and beyond what was expected. I feel so blessed to have worked with Jim and his staff and will certainly be back for my real estate needs.

    • Jim and his entire team are incredible and they went above-and-beyond to help us buy our dream house in a difficult sellers' market. Communication was extremely important to us and it is crucial to have open lines of communication in a sellers' market; with so many people looking to buy, we needed to see houses on the same day they were listed in order to feel like we could make competitive offers. Kristen (our buyer's agent) is an amazing communicator and we loved the fact that we could communicate quickly and thoroughly with her via text, email, and phone calls. We could always count on Kristen to see a house on the same day it was listed and she was incredibly flexible to accommodate our crazy work schedules. Kristen regularly looked for homes that were not yet listed on the market and she is extremely knowledgeable about local communities and schools, which helped us to feel that we had a leg up on the competition. She is extremely knowledgeable about She really made us feel like we were a priority for her (even though she had many other clients) and she always took the to time to listen to all of our wants, wishes, and desires. She also took the time to negotiate an amazing deal on our house and our offer was accepted that same night. Haley (our transaction coordinator) was also outstanding and she helped make the inspection and house closing a seamless process. She always took time to call us and walk us through our amendments and she thoroughly answered all our questions. She was instrumental in making everything stress-free and she helped us close in 30 days, in time for the holidays. The Jim Geracie team treats you like family and truly cares about your investment and greater interests no matter how long it takes. You will not be disappointed by working with them, and the entire team will deliver for you, even in a nutty market!

      - Katlyn Morgan
    • We had our home on the market for 60 days without a single offer and only a handful of prospective buyers coming by to look at the property. We ended up taking it off the market and were lucky enough to get out of our contract. We then began the process of looking for another agent and after a few interviews, it was clear we needed to go with Jim. He doesnt always tell you what you want to hear but he tells you what you need to hear. He is upfront, honest, respectful, understanding and is so personable- by the end,you are feeling like he and his team are your friends. Jim and his team are so proficient, they were able to sell our home in just 4 days!! I highly recommend Jim and his team!!

      - vjo 10509
    • Jim and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I would recommend them to anyone. Haley from the office staff could do anything one would ask. The process of selling a house I lived in for 70 years and was extremely stressful. Jim was my contact person for over two years and graciously helped me through the process.

      - Lynn
    • Jim understands the Real Estate Business and he loves being part of it! He is very professional and surrounds himself with other highly competent professionals. I had excellent service from Jim and every member of his team that I worked with. Jim and his team are also a great resource. If you have questions, you will get answers you can trust.

      - Tom
    • Jim Geracie and his team (Alex and Haley) made the selling of our first home an absolute dream. They went to bat for us on getting the best offer and did so with efficiency and professionalism. We also purchased our next home with his team and Gareth did a top notch job. He came prepared to each showing and presented a great selection of options to meet our needs.

      - Sav Hayden
    • Jim and his team did a great job with selling our house in a relatively short time at near the asking price. They were very helpful in staging and getting the house prepared for sale, and helped through every step of the process. Kristen Gustafson is fantastic!

      - Ken E
    • Ive worked with both Jim and Jill over the past 25 years both buying and selling my houses. Ive recommended them to others with confidence and everyone else has been very satisfied as well. They both take the personal touch. Buying my last home was following my divorce and I was bit lost. Jill was so patient and kind and always POSITIVE. She made me feel confident that I would find the right house. And we did. And because I dont know squat about things like furnaces and sump pumps, Jim came out, showed me everything, and did his own personal check. Above and beyond. And I am forever grateful for their help. They know the difference between a house and a home and treat you like a friend not a client. Great people!

      - Cindy C
    • Thanks to Jim Geracie's invaluable and trusted expertise, my home sold for the HIGHEST price I've seen in my neighborhood in years with 2 solid offers the 1st day on the market. Extremely impressive! I very highly recommend Jim Geracie as he does, in fact, get TOP DOLLAR for your home. The Geracie Team showed integrity and patience, always quick to respond to my needs. That was an awesome "DONE DEAL!" Couldn't be more satisfied.

      - Carrie T
    • We were very glad we chose to list our condo with Jim Geracie and his team! They provided excellent guidance as to staging our home. We received good information as to what price we should list our home! We felt the pictures taken for the listing was very helpful to show the important features which attracted potential buyers. Jim is a strong and fair negotiator when we received various offers. The Geracie team was very supportive all of the way through closing.

      - John Beggs
    • Jim brought his energy, extensive knowledge, attention to details and caring and respectful communication to every aspect of the sale of my home in Brookfield, WI. Jim listened to my ideas, hopes and concerns and jumped into action purposefully and immediately. I felt heard and respected every step of the way. Jim knew the market and the daily details of its movement. He helped me get the best price for my home at the time of the sale. Jim followed up with me regularly, even after closing, demonstrating a true concern for the satisfaction of the customer. Thank you, Jim, for your outstanding service!

    • he Jim Geracie Team are the Professionals Professionals. We really enjoyed working with Jim and his entire Team. Start to finish they were with us every step of the way providing great Market insight and recommendations, from Staging our House for showing to decorating tips for the Home they helped us find and purchase.

      - G Hall
    • We used the Geracie team to purchase our home 3 years ago, and based on that experience, used them again recently to sell the same home. We are so glad we did. We ended up with 3 offers on our home, and ended up selling way above list price. The Geracie team is knowledgeable & strategic, prompt to respond, and have a high level of professionalism. They went over each offer with us, in detail, so we could make an informed decision based on what was best for us. They also directed us as to how to increase the value of the home, and how to stage it when we were preparing to sell it. We would recommend the Geracie team to anyone buying or selling a home.

      - Eileen Dyer
    • I have worked with Jim and Jill Geracie to buy and sell a couple houses now and have been consistently impressed. Most recently Jill and her team helped me find and purchase my new house. From beginning to end, they walked me through every step of the process, went above and beyond to answer all my questions promptly and thoroughly, and helped me find the right home for my family. They are extremely knowledgeable of the greater Milwaukee area, have an extensive network to draw upon, and conduct themselves with honesty and integrity. Highly recommend!

      - Wisconsin Pam
    • im, Katie, and Haley are ruly professionals. Unlike some realtors who sign you up, put a sign on your lawn, and disappear into thin air, Jim developed a SPECIFIC STRATEGY to market OUR home and Katie and Haley applied it to achieve a successful sale. They are not just listing brokers - they follow through - THEY ARE SELLING BROKERS. Their expertise helped us through th local, state, federal, and institutional requirements and made sure things were done correctly. We couldn' have done it without them.

      - John Schultz
    • Jim was fantastic to work with. Extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Being an investor himself, he truly understands the rental property market. I plan to use him again soon for my next investment property.

      - Marissa
    • We worked with Jill Geracie and she was amazing. She had great recommendations, and negotiated for us with the seller to get us almost all our requests approved. We were so worried about the home buying process but Jill was there every step of the way and made it a breeze. We would recommend her to all our friends and family.

      - Sarah Benitez
    • The Geracie team worked in a professional and expeditious manner to address every detail of the purchase of our home and even took the time to help us through the personal concerns of home buying. These guys are the tops!

      - Mark McKinstry
    • We worked with the Geracie team to purchase our first home and were impressed with the customer service! There was always a member of the team available to walk us through a showing at whatever time worked for us. Kristen (Buyer Specialist) is very knowledgeable and made the process fun. Haley (Transaction Manager) is extremely responsive and easy to work with. Jill (Buyer's Agent) is experienced and helped us get an accepted offer on the first try, at a price we were comfortable with. Highly recommend!

    • Jim Gereacie's team were extremely professional and efficient. Since we started the process living in another state our time spent looking for homes was limited; not to mention costly. The Geracie team provided us all the necessary online tools to make our search easy and efficient, and when we arrived we hit the streets running. They showed us so many homes since, we were unfamiliar with the area and the market. Their knowledge and guidance were extremely helpful when it came to negotiations. Once we had an accepted offer, their team went into overdrive to ensure that all the details were handled correctly and in a timely manner. All around a great experience, it will be so easy to recommend their service to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house.

      - M Leveille
    • We listed and sold our first home (a 3 BR, 1.5 BA ranch in suburban Milwaukee) with the Jim Geracie team in the summer of 2016. We met with Jim days after making an accepted offer on a new home, so naturally, we were more than a tad stressed and overwhelmed. Jim's team immediately prepared us for battle, calculating a perfect price for the marketplace and assisting us in staging the home to show at its best. Less than 3 days after listing, we had an accepted offer for full list price! Between the offer and close, we ran into a few challenges with the inspection, the buyer's loan, and a lien on our title. In every case, the Geracie team walked us through the process with a calm professionalism and resolved the issue, leading us to a successful closing. I cannot speak highly enough of this team. It will likely be several years before we buy or sell another house, but when we do, we will definitely work with the Geracie team. If you want to buy or sell a house in the Milwaukee area, we strongly encourage you to do likewise!

      - Joel
    • I worked with The Geracie Team this past summer to help me find a home closer to my children. They handled all the details in finding the home, helping me see possibilities and shortcomings in homes I looked at, all the way through the closing. Being a senior citizen I appreciated how very kind and professional they were, and that includes all the members of their staff . Great people!

      - judithbadura
    • im and his team sold our home in record time! They are knowledgeable, responsive and were able to help us navigate with some challenging situations with the other broker!!! His pricing advice was spot on and we could not be more pleased with the outcome! It was very important to us to know that we could trust our realtor implicitly-- the 'integrity' in their name is not just a marketing tag! We would highly recommend The Geracie Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

      - Brookfield Seller
    • Jim and his team were able to deal with an extremely hostile broker that was representing the buyers. His ability to control the verbal abuse and his team's response to it was very professional. He said he would sell the house in one week and that is how long it took.

      - Lady Diane G
    • We found Jim Geracie through Dave Ramsey's ELP program. I filled out a form online on a Sunday Evening. Within 10 minutes, we received a phone call from Jim, and scheduled an appointment to meet us at our house the next evening. He and his team (yes he has a support team... but that doesn't mean he is not spearheading the sale) are professional, thorough, great communicators and made this a smooth and easy experience. He set a price that he assured us would generate offers and got us the highest bid in the shortest time. We thought it was too high (LOL), but learned from other realtors it was priced perfectly, and we received a bid over asking immediately. We cannot adequately express my gratitude to Jim for his efforts, and recommend him to all for their real estate needs.

      - Karen G
    • My experience was the Iskra and the Jim Geracie Group was phenomenal. Very knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. I was thoroughly please with all members of the team and Jim took the time to contact me before, during and after the purchase of the property. I couldn't be more please with the outcome.

      - L Christof
    • We had the absolute pleasure of working with Jill Geracie. She was incredible. We were in need of buying a home in a market where homes were selling in one day and in some cases within hours. We needed someone who would be on top of everything and available at a moments notice. After investigating a few realtors, we settled on Jill and the Geracie team. And they do have a team. There was ALWAYS someone available and on top of everything from start to finish. NOTHING slipped through the cracks. Literally on the way to view a home, a new listing popped up on my phone and my wife and I viewed the pictures and asked to schedule an immediate showing. We got in within an hour as the first ones to view the home. We loved it and made an immediate offer. Now most homes that had any value were getting into bidding wars but Jill did a preemptive maneuver with her offer writing expertise that allowed us to get the home at a great value before other offers came in that prevented a bidding war. Not only did this allow us to get the home but her expertise probably saved us thousands of dollars. And even more than this, after the inspection showed some items that needed repair, Jill was able to negotiate a very nice price reduction. Jill was so wonderfully kind and professional. Wow! What a great person to have on your side. Jill's the best!!! All I can say is that I would recommend her and the Geracie team to everyone. They are worth every single penny and more.

      - Hartland Buyers
    • I simply cannot imagine a better real estate experience than working with Jill, Jim, and their team. They are incredibly knowledgeable, totally responsive, give excellent advice on everything you need, and what's more - they truly care about you, your family, and your future home. They helped us buy our first home, and we found one we absolutely love. Jill even guided us through a competitive offer situation with grace and professionalism, and we are now beyond thrilled to have the house. Honestly, stop reading this review and contact the Geracie team already!

      - Valarie
    • We were so pleased with Jim and his team throughout our entire home selling process. We had, by far, the lowest priced home on their website, but you wouldn't know it by how well they communicated with us and how respectful they were of our needs. They guided us through each step and always told us what to expect. Highly recommended!

      - RN Mama
    • We were very happy with Jill's expertise in helping us buy our very first home in Menomonee Falls. It was a new construction and she gave us valuable advice on making smart design choices and layout decisions that would keep or enhance the home value. The entire team is very efficient in communicating and handling all the documents and in general, the whole home buying process. They made the whole process very easy for us to handle. We recommend the Geracie Team for anyone buying their first home.

      - Meena K
    • Total pro, the best, knows MKE amazingly well, really well connected and respected, patient, gives good advice, helpful each step, no pressure, wants you to be happy in forever home.

      - Mark Sapir
    • Jim was fabulous in the local knowledge of market in general as well as the knowledge of the immediate neighborhood. He met with us on short notice and went through all the important details. Even in a relatively tough market, he guided us through thinking about price and what needed to be done. As a result the property sold relatively quickly compared to others in the neighborhood. We were always kept up to date on whatever was going on and were guided right through to the closing with no difficulties. I wish everything was that smooth and I wish everybody was that easy to work with.

      - dseemuth
    • Jim was by far the best agent we've worked with. We had bought a duplex with a different buyers rep that Jim was selling and a year later we were looking to purchase another in the same area. We had developed a relationship with Jim and decided to use him to represent us this time. We were SO happy we did. His knowledge of the area by far surpassed our previous agent and he was great at getting us through an extremely tough deal. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim to anyone and we plan on using him on every transaction moving forward.

      - Michelle Doyle
    • Jim took the time to understand what I was looking for and then provided me with the tools I needed to understand the market. From there, he only presented deals that I was interested in. When we ended up seeing a property that I liked, Jim was fast moving so I wouldn't miss the opportunity. I would 100% recommend Jim!

      - uwwguiness
    • Wow! What can we say? This realtor experience was the best- smooth and seamless. The whole firm was caring and professional and did it all for us. Even our mortgage broker said that this team was the best he ever worked with.

      - luhermann
    • When relocating to the Milwaukee area, friends advised us to contact Jim and Jill Geracie for our real estate search. Great advice! Jill, Jim, and the rest of their team provided excellent service, vast knowledge of the area, intense acumen in the real estate market, incredible business savvy, and unparalleled exactness with details. We wanted affordable property within a tiny, specific, expensive radius, and they helped us find it! We have relocated several times over the years, working with many different realtors, and we award Jim and his team our personal five-star rating for superlative professionalism!

      - Gaylene and John
    • Listened to our goals and wish list intently, homes that were sent to us aligned with our goals, informative, and his team was very responsive. Lots of experience in the business and area we were looking in. Great response time when we had a question or concern.

      - JeremiahParve
    • The home buying experience is stressful and fast-paced. As a first time home buyer, I was learning everything as I went along. Jim and Jill Geracie and their team responded quickly to all of my questions, were responsive to and flexible with my tight timeline, and worked tirelessly to help me find a great first home! The Geracie team alleviated a lot of the pressures and stress I was feeling and I knew I was in good hands. They worked hard throughout the entire process and through closing to get me the best result possible, to include some tough negotiating with the sellers. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Milwaukee area. Professional, courteous, tenacious and honest realty team.
