I'm a lifetime resident of Milwaukee, WI interested in finding my first multi-family property in my hometown. I'm looking for a 2-4 unit property (owner-occupied) in or near the downtown area (ideally East Town, Walker's Point, or Brewer's Hill). This will be my first real estate purchase and I'm looking for a reliable, hardworking, real estate agent that is familiar with investment properties in these areas, but so far haven't been able to find a good match. I feel like there is an endless sea of agents to sort through, and those I have reached out to have just put me on MLS alerts without another word from them. I'm experiencing a bit of analysis paralysis and would be very grateful for any recommendations on how to find the right real estate agent for me.
I might be a good fit. I work mostly with investment properties and have helped many buyers land themselves a duplex (despite me always encouraging them to go bigger!) Additionally, I own a few myself and bought my first one on an FHA, I did a write up about that on the member blog if you check my profile.
I'm also pretty familiar with the areas you're describing. Bad news is that there almost aren't any 3 or 4 families that come on the market, but I also do quite a bit of marketing and try to put off market deals together as well.
In any case, it has to be a good fit for both of us if I'm going to put time into trying to locate a good one for a client. Most agents will run around with any lead they can but I spend a considerable amount of my time trying to find good cash buys so I'm less willing to work with dozens of clients.
Let me know if you'd like to get coffee and see if it'd be a good fit. I live in Riverwest so I'm not far off.
Best of luck either way!
I would be up for grabbing coffee to see whether we would be a good fit or not. I'll send you a private message to work out the details.
Thanks for reaching out!
