Agents and Offices
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin I ran an area business for a few years before becoming a licensed Realtor in WI in 1989. Since then, I've been fortunate to serve thousands of families from all over the country and the world. I have earned the CRS, GRI, RSS, and ABR real estate designations and I'm both a licensed Salesperson and a Broker. My real estate accomplishments include selling large condo developments, representing builders in new residential developments, extensive work with relocation companies, executive and lake property sales, small business sales and residential home sales. I am a top producing realtor, with record sales of over 60 properties in a year. During my career, I have toured over 10,000 homes and sold over 1000. Underlying this record of success is a genuine comfort and enjoyment that comes from working with a wide range of people in interesting and often challenging situations.
My Business I have a strong support team at Restaino that allows me to focus on what I do best in each transaction - finding creative solutions in order to negotiate the best terms for my clients, researching trends and area sales to determine top strategies to sell my listings or find the best property for my buying clients, keeping abreast of new technologies; promotional tools, and communicating at an optimum level with my clients on an on-going basis. I also focus on making dynamic connections in the community so the needs of my clients are met promptly and effectively.
My Interests Madison is a spectacular place to call home. Having spent my life here, I am intimately familiar with what the city has to offer and I try to experience as many of the area's amenities as possible. I teach a couple yoga classes, hike and bike the gorgeous trails around lakes and parks, and the city trails. I love to cook and find savory items at the weekly Farmer's Market on the square. I get out boating and kayaking, attend the outdoor symphony, enjoy the ballet, plays and lectures at the University, golf on our many terrific courses and play ball with my Shih Tzu dog. There seems to be no end to the diverse live music, delicious ethnic restaurants, art shows, sporting events, trade shows, live dance and music performances to enjoy. In the winter I cross-country ski, entertain at home more often, enjoy area indoor water parks, and love to travel to exotic and unusual places. I have also taken advantage of some of Madison's many great opportunities to volunteer my time to several area organizations providing support to families in need.
What to Expect When you work with me you can expect high, positive energy, creative solutions, tenacity, integrity, compassion, thoughtfulness, professionalism, technical savvy, accessibility and a job well done. I have been fortunate to have acquired a large and loyal fan base of very satisfied customers and clients. I will go to great lengths to earn your recommendation as well. I look forward to having the opportunity to connect with you to discuss any of your real estate interests or concerns.
