Personal Pursuits Katie was born and raised in Wisconsin. She has a deep connection to the Milwaukee area through her family’s business. You mean the music store LoDuca’s? Yep. LoDuca Accordions? Absolutely. The wine LoDuca’s? Yes. She grew up helping with the family business—everything from making wine coolers and managing wine booths for summer lakefront festivals to data entry and wine label design. She has a firm understanding of what it means to work “all hands on deck” and enjoys a new challenge.

    "Selling a home you built and have lived in for almost two decades can be an emotional undertaking. This team's knowledge, expertise, and experience came in handy throughout the process. They were always responsive and ready with an answer (or a listening ear) to help us through the process. When negotiations got a little bogged down, they moved heaven and earth to make the sale happen. Everything worked out well in the end for -- and I was so happy to have them on my side of it all. I would suggest that if you are the least bit concerned about your sale, use a professional. And be sure that if you can't use this team, you find someone EXACTLY like them."

    Tonya is a real(ty) dynamo! She and her professional team work tirelessly and effectively to provide the best possible home buying/selling experience.  Tonya possesses such vast knowledge of the housing industry, current home valuations, local market trends, etc. We really appreciated the market-targeted price point she suggested for listing our home and how quickly it sold, not to mention the 8% premium over listing that we received!  Tonya has fantastic response times. She always replied to our emails/texts immediately or within the hour.  Tonya is absolutely fantastic and we would recommend her to everyone! The whole process was just so well ordered and classy. Thank you Tonya and your team!
