Jo was recommended to us by a friend because she is very honest and straight forward. Two important qualities you don’t always find in a Realtor. Our search for a home took over a year. We explored every location, style of house, etc. Through it all, she reassured us that we would indeed find ‘the one’. Sometimes the process of buying a home can be challenging, especially during these financially difficult times. We were so thankful for Jo’s professionalism, patience and encouraging words. We had fun searching and indeed found a home we love. We highly recommend you to all of our friends and family. Thank you so much, Jo. - Anne & Pat J.

Working with Jo has been great, in both the selling and buying experience. The whole process took well over a year, during which time she never lost patience and always conducted herself in a very professional and helpful manner. During the selling process she went above and beyond what one would expect from a REALTOR® to help with getting the work done that was required for the deal to go through. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a REALTOR® - John L.

I listed my home in late Fall with Jo, and it was barely on the market for two months and it sold. Jo gave excellent advice on making my home more appealing, and I was impressed with her marketing skills. Most impressive was the showing she held for are agents which greatly increased the marketability. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone selling a home. - Irene M.

Having accepted a new job in Wausau, it was necessary for me to relocate from Illinois. The move would mean leaving family and friends to start a new life in a place about which I knew nothing. Finding a knowledgeable, diligent, patient REALTOR® was an absolute must. Those qualities were met, above and beyond, when I was provided with the name Jo Dresen. Jo adapts well to her clients. She observes the smallest of details and acts on those observations, thus streamlining the entire process. Her professional rapport with other REALTORS® is well established which made it possible to view several listing with very little notice. This was important to me since I was traveling over 200 miles to view listings and needed to see multiple properties within a few hours. For 2 months straight, Jo had time every weekend for me while juggling other clients. I never felt rushed or inadequately attended to. Jo communicates clearly so that I was aware of her needs as much as she was aware of mine. This is something most clients do not consider, but it is a vital component of the client/REALTOR® dynamic. Her follow-up via phone during the week was prompt, to the point, and with relevant, pertinent updates. Once an offer was made and accepted, there was hardly a bump. When I had to get tough, she was right there being touch with me… but Jo is much more diplomatic than I, thus securing the deal. The closing went off without a single hitch. Jo’s attention to detail and level of organization makes her a great asset in the world of home buying and selling. I would recommend her services, without reservation or hesitation, to any perspective client. - Linda P.

We were relocating from the Washington D.C. area. We were not only unfamiliar with the area but knew absolutely no one. Jo was our savior. Her hard work and diligence paid off with a beautiful house on Lake Du Bay. We journeyed out to Lake Du Bay on three separate occasions, and Jo was always there to help us evaluate the homes she was showing. We were finally ready to put a bid on a house on the river when Jo discovered a brand new listing on Lake Du Bay. Jo knew what we wanted and she came through. The very next day we put a successful bid on the house we really wanted on Lake Du Bay. Her communication skills back and forth to our previous home in Washington D.C. were tremendous. She kept us informed at all times. Even since we have moved in, Jo is still helping with contractors and advice. Jan and I highly recommend Jo Dresen. You won’t go wrong with Jo. - Kevin & Jan C.

We wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge Jo Dresen’s excellent service with regard to our recent home purchase. Jo was recommended to us by my employer, and after working with Jo for the past few months, we fully understand why. From the beginning of the house-hunting process until the signing of the papers, Jo was consistently professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. On our first trip to Wausau she took us on a tour of many of the neighborhoods and gave us a great overview of the community. She followed up with us by email and sent us the monthly real estate guides. Once we began seriously looking for a home she worked with us from the listings we had picked out from the guide and on the internet and suggested some additional properties based on our preferences. She then took an entire day out of her schedule to take us out to look at homes (22 of them!). She prepared information sheets on each of the homes for us and was very well-informed about each of the properties. When she did not have the answer to a question, she made note of it and followed up with us the following week with the information. After a second trip to look at our three top choices, Jo helped us put together an offer for our home. Over the following few days and after many emails, faxes, and phone calls back and forth we had a purchase agreement with the sellers. As we were first time buyers, that process was both exciting and a little intimidating, but Jo made it easy by giving us such personalized attention. She continued to stay on top of all the details leading up to our signing. Jo helped us find exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t be happier with our new home. Because of her excellent service and personalized attention, we will definitely recommend her to any of our friends and colleagues looking to buy or sell a home. - Dan & Pamela G.

Buying or selling a home can be an overwhelming task, especially if it is your first time. We were lucky to have a wonderful partner on our team, Jo Dresen, to guide us through the process. Jo entered our life when we initially returned to the Wausau area and were casually checking out open houses. We toured a home she had listed, and several months down the road spoke with her again when we saw another of her listings. After these two casual meetings with us, Jo had already developed a feel for what we were looking for. We received an email from Jo of a listing that had just hit the market, and she thought it was perfect for us. We toured it the next day. Jo was right, it was the perfect home for us. Had it not been for our early notice of this home, we would have missed this opportunity. Jo was there through every detail of our home buying experience. She walked us through our offer and kept us updated on the entire process. Even when she knew we would be out of town, she got in touch with us to give us the news we were anxiously awaiting. After our offer was accepted, she covered every base and was always accessible for our questions. What we thought would be a stressful ordeal ended up being a smooth, seamless process. Working with Jo was a true pleasure. She understood our needs, was knowledgeable about the property, and above all else, was sincerely kind and concerned. We love the home that Jo helped us find, and can’t imagine ever leaving it. But, if the day comes when our needs change, we already know who we would go to. Without a doubt, Jo Dresen is our top choice. We recommend this caring professional to our friends, family, and anyone entering the real-estate market. - Todd & Jodi S.

I’m writing to thank you for representing me as a buyer’s agent in the purchase of my home. I was particularly pleased with your thorough search for homes that met my criteria, and your timely communication with these prospects. I was also impressed with your “intuition” to make a very favorable offer on my behalf that was accepted without being countered. - Mike B.

I recently purchase a home through Jo Dresen and I have to say what a great experience this was. This was my first home purchase and I feel very fortunate to have had Jo as an agent. What was most important to me was the fact that she really listened and paid attention to what it was I was looking for so when the “Perfect House” for me came along she knew it and contacted me right away. With her help, I was able to purchase my “Perfect House” and I am so thrilled! As a first time homebuyer, I required some ‘hand-holding’ and a little extra help with all the procedures and paperwork. Jo was great at explaining each and every step so I really felt like I knew what was happening and not just signing a bunch of paperwork. I would and will highly recommend Jo Dresen to anyone looking to purchase a new home! - Jennifer M.

I am writing to tell you how much we appreciated your help in finding our first home. After several months we are finally settled in and we love being homeowners! When we first started thinking about purchasing a home it was somewhat of a joke. The combination of our age, income, and needs, it seemed impossible for us to even consider buying a home. I was convinced we wouldn’t be able to do it until I called you. Your references to the local banks and your understanding of their different programs really helped us get the ball rolling. Your willingness to walk us through all the steps in this process was so helpful for first time buyers like ourselves. The time and effort you took to ensure we understood every step we made was invaluable. And, without your knowledge of the area we never would have been able to have our offer accepted so quickly. Again, we want to extend our sincere gratitude for your help. - Jami & Ryan K.

We want to thank Jo for selling our home in Merrill. We had originally listed with another company and then switched to Jo. We received an acceptable offer and closed the sale. Jo’s performance was excellent. We had twice the number of showings in a 3 month period than we did in the previous year with the other company. Jo kept us updated throughout the entire period. Her open houses drew a lot of people and the web site helped find our buyer. Jo’s honest, straight forward feedback and recommendations helped us make critical decisions that ultimately sold our home. We would recommend Jo to anyone. - Randy & Jean S.

Suddenly it occurred to me that you deserve a heartfelt thanks for helping me sell my property. You didn’t want to question my desire for asking a fairly high price and patiently and affectionately you kept hinting for lowering the price. You not only sold my home at a good price, but we also became good friends. Hope our trust and friendship is lasting. - Mike R.
