See our Madeline Island Realty ad in the Island Gazette on March 24th
 
As of the end of 2017, we completed our sixth consecutive year in which we made at least one Madeline Island/Bayfield sale at or above $500,000. And in the last eight years, we made nine upper-bracket sales between $500,000 and $1.5 Million in our service area.
 
 
No other real estate brokerage in the Chequamegon Bay/South Shore area has matched our record in upper-bracket sales. We know that upper-bracket sellers face greater challenges in achieving a sale than those who are selling a mid-priced home. All of those sellers deserve a … (0 comments)

Amazon's "Agent NEO" app Could be a Game Changer for Real Estate Agents
 
Inman News is talking about this. I haven't seen it mentioned on Active Rain yet, but it's certainly getting attention elsewhere. And if you've missed it, you might benefit from doing a little research.
 
Agent NEO is Amazon's latest foray into providing a service to the real estate profession. The Agent NEO app is currently in Beta testing. It looks like both large and small brokerages are applying to test the new app.
Who couldn't use another way to reach real estate consumers? Alexa has become a popular way to keep … (17 comments)

madeline island realty: Superb Brickyard Creek Waterfront Home in Bayfield WI - Sale Pending - 03/15/16 07:00 PM
Superb Brickyard Creek Waterfront Home in Bayfield WI - Sale Pending
 
One of our favorite Madeline Island Realty listings ever  is now a Pending sale.
Built by renowned Minneapolis & Saint Paul master builder Tony Eiden in 2003, this magnificent waterfront home in the Brickyard Creek development, adjacent to Roy's Point Marina, is in superb condition.
 
The exceptional view of Basswood Island (in the Apostle Islands of northwest Wisconsin) is an "up-close-and-personal" focal point of this luxury waterfront home. From the large, elegant tiled foyer and formal dining room to the dramatic wall of windows in the living room facing Lake Superior, the construction quality and attention … (8 comments)

Showing Activity Heats Up on Madeline Island and Bayfield, WI in March
 
A Market Report from Madeline Island Realty
 
After a couple of very quiet months, we are seeing a revival in property showing activity on both Madeline Island and in Bayfield, Wisconsin.  Things were very quiet in our Apostle Islands real estate market during January and February of 2016, but that hiatus seems to be coming to an end.
 
For the first time since early to mid-December, property inquiries by prospective buyers appear to be on the rise. Most of the buyer interest is in homes, but there have also been inquiries about vacant land, particularly large parcels … (2 comments)

madeline island realty: Ours May be the Only Beachfront Real Estate Office on Lake Superior - 01/02/16 04:01 AM
Ours May Possibly be the Only Beachfront Real Estate Office on Lake Superior
 
To our knowledge, Madeline Island Realty enjoys the only beachfront residential real estate office on Lake Superior. If that is true, it would be quite a distinction, as Lake Superior has over 2700 linear miles of shoreline. By the way, that shoreline circumference equals approximately ten per cent of the way around our planet, measured at the equator (about twenty-five thousand miles).

madeline island realty: Fifteen Years Since Our Office First Joined a Multiple Listing Service - 12/24/15 11:19 AM
Fifteen Years Since Our Office First Joined a Multiple Listing Service
 
I remember quite well the day that our company, Madeline Island Realty, became the first real estate brokerage on Madeline Island to join a Multiple Listing Service (MLS). It was at the beginning of 2001 that I begain having discussions with the folks at Northwest Wisconsin Multiple Listing Service in Eau Claire, Wisconsin about becoming a member. At that time, nobody on Madeline Island or in nearby Bayfield, Wisconsin had an MLS membership or uploaded their property listings to a Multiple Listing Service.
 
At that time, in our sleepy little corner of … (2 comments)

Market Report - Buyers Show Renewed Interest in Bayfield County Homes
 
The final two months of 2015 were a fairly strong indicator of buyer interest in Bayfield County Wisconsin homes.  Madeline Island Realty experienced an unusually high level of showing requests for homes in Bayfield and Washburn during both November and December, including one of our company's luxury home listings in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
 
In November, our listing at 27200 North Maple Hill Road, in Washburn, Wisconsin (listed by Broker Eric Kodner with Madeline Island Realty) was sold. The completely remodeled home on thirty acres, with a small stream running through the property, … (1 comments)

SOLD 27200 North Maple Hill Rd Washburn WI Listed by Madeline Island Realty
 
Another Washburn Wisconsin sale listed by Eric Kodner with Madeline Island Realty, this three bedroom and two bath home on thirty wooded acres was one of our "best buys" during autumn of this year. The secluded property west of Washburn, Wisconsin is crossed by a stream, with rolling topography and idyllic rural views.
Some of our customers and clients occasionally forget that Madeline Island Realty lists and sells homes in the mainland towns of Washburn and Bayfield, in addition to Madeline Island.  Washburn home sales of this quality are not an everyday event and we're particularly proud of … (4 comments)

If You Text Message us to Schedule a Showing, Please Identify Yourself
 
I realize that we have more than one MLS in the Apostle Islands area (a few real estate brokerages belong to NorthstarMLS, others to SAAR and still others to Northwest Wisconsin MLS).  Online services like ShowingTime or Book-a-Showing are rarely (if ever) used by real estate agents in this part of Wisconsin.  Cellular phone reception is poor to nonexistent around here and signal coverage is spotty at best. Most agents in this area appear to use pushbutton lockboxes or dial combination lockboxes, instead of electronic lockboxes.  Showings in our area are most … (9 comments)

We Listed 7 of the Last 8 Luxury Homes Sold on Madeline Island
 
Madeline Island Realty is on a roll this year.  Call it a trend or merely an indicator, but the fact remains that over the past four and one-half years, our LaPointe, Wisconsin real estate brokerage listed seven of the eight Madeline Island homes which sold at over $500,000.  And there are a number of reasons why.

madeline island realty: Lower Big Bay Road Popular in Madeline Island Real Estate Market - 06/20/15 07:22 AM
Lower Big Bay Road Popular in Madeline Island Real Estate Market
 
Recent sales indicate that the south portion of Big Bay Road closest to the Town of LaPointe (from the edge of town north to the portion where North Shore Road begins) has become very popular with buyers of Madeline Island homes.
 
The April 2015 sale of 1150 Big Bay Road, LaPointe, Wisconsin and the subsequent sale in May of 1042 Big Bay Road, LaPointe, Wisconsin appear to bear this out.  Both sales were waterfront properties, located just north of the Madeline Island Airport and both were within two miles of downtown LaPointe. … (0 comments)

Three Waterfront Sales on Madeline Island in the Past Two Months
 
April, May and June of this year have brought welcome news to our Madeline Island home sellers. Between April 15 and June 12, Madeline Island Realty has accomplished three sales of its waterfront listings on the Island.
 
Beginning with the sale of 1150 Big Bay Road, LaPointe, Wisconsin in mid-April, the strength of the real estate market in our 54850 zip code area has made a respectable showing.  There's still an element of bargain-hunting in this market, but it's been offset by prospects cashing in on historically low prices.  
 
In mid-May, we … (0 comments)

A Rare Find on Madeline Island - 587 Craig's Way, LaPointe WI 54850
 
587 Craig's Way could best be described as a classic waterfront retreat.  The four-bedroom, three bathroom home is located in the well-known O'Brien subdivision, just northeast of Capser Road and the historic Grant's Point area.  This charming waterfront property is a new listing, offered by Broker Eric Kodner, with Madeline Island Realty.

madeline island realty: What to Expect When You List Your Madeline Island Home for Sale - 02/23/15 03:19 AM
What to Expect When You List Your Madeline Island Home for Sale
 
When you've decided that it's time to list your Madeline Island Home for sale, you'll benefit from being aware of the realities that go along with putting your property on the market:
 
Your property will have competition.  Your home, cabin, cottage or vacant land parcel will be competing with other listings.  Competing criteria will include price, condition and location, among other things.  It's very important to be aware (and realistically  so) of how your own property ranks among the competition.
 
Buyers will often have great expectations, perhaps even unrealistic expectations.  Sometimes it may seem … (1 comments)
