What Others Are Saying

We worked with John and his team on the purchase of our retirement home and the sale of our lake cabin. Both transactions went smoothly. The whole team is well organized, are great communicators and are pleasant to work with. I spent so much time in their office the last six months that they feel like family. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for the use of the trailer to use in the move. It is a nice touch.

“Pleasant and professional is the best way to describe our experience with Six Lakes Realty. When it came time to sell our property in downtown Chetek, we contacted several realtors in the area. Six Lakes responded immediately, visited the property, answered all of our questions openly and then presented a plan. Although several other realtors responded, none compared. Once John Flor of Six Lakes was awarded the opportunity to sell our property, he went right to work. We ended up with multiple offers and the property was sold in less than 3 days. Thanks to John Flor and his team for a painless experience. You guys rock!”

“For 3 1/2 years, my wife and I looked at properties and looked for our new family home and from day 1 Julie Flor was there for us. Whether it was a call, a late-night text, or an email with a question about a potential home, Julie was always there with an answer. Finally, after years of struggling to find the perfect place, Julie got us into our new home. Every detail of what we wanted finally came around, and Julie worked with us and amazingly didn’t show frustration after all of the time that we had into the home buying/search process! I truly believe that Julie, John, and their team know the Chetek area real estate better than any other realtor because they call Chetek home, and I would happily refer anyone looking for any type of property to them in a heartbeat.”

Julie went above and beyond our expectations as a Buyers Agent. Whatever was needed, Julie either answered before we asked or provided what we needed asap. We looked at many homes on some very cold days; Julie was always willing to show whatever house we wanted to see. Phone calls were returned promptly even on weekends or when she was out of the office out of town. We highly recommend the Six Lakes Realty team whether buying or selling a home. If I could I would give the team six stars!”

We recently purchased a home, she made the time to show us the home several times, due to crazy work schedules and even made a special trip so our boys could see it too.

Julie made it so easy for us that there was no stress on our part at all. We wanted a fairly quick closing date on both purchases and Julie was ready way before the dates we had given her. The customer service we received was the best!! I contacted Julie when she was in another state, on a business trip, running a marathon, after office hours and always received a response back from her. We are looking forward to working with Six Lakes Realty again!”

“Thank you and your team for helping us sell the lot in Chetek. We are happy and so are the buyers, Bruce and his wife. As you are aware we had previously listed with 2 others and the difference was extreme. To me there were 3 big differences, first you took the time to correctly price it to sell, second, continual contact to update me on the status, and finally the success in completing the sale. Thank You.”

Bernard and Mary S.

“John Flor of Six Lakes realty recently sold our cabin near Weyerhauser WI after having listed it for almost two years in the worst real estate market down turn in our lifetimes. His professional skills, positive attitude and persistence led to a sale which satisfied buyer and sellers alike. The unexpected loops and turns on the way to closing were negotiated skillfully on our behalf, and resulted in good outcomes for all. I would not hesitate to recommend John Flor and his team to anyone seeking professional and ethical representation in their real estate transactions. He fulfilled and exceeded all expectations.”

Susan P.

“It was a pleasure working with John Flor and his team to sell our home in Chetek. John was very approachable and easy to get a hold of.

All correspondence was answered quickly and we never felt ‘lost in the shuffle’. Julie went above and beyond to help us find EXACTLY what we were looking for and once we found it, the closing process was a breeze.

Thank you Julie for helping us find a place where we will undoubtedly have a lifetime of great memories!”

Tera and Luke B.

“John Flor and the Team at Six Lakes Realty is a wonderful example as to how a Real Estate company should run. I listed my small cabin with John Flor and I knew I was doing the right thing. John’s customer service is second to none. Even if there was nothing to report he consistently called every month to check in. John is the best promoter of Chetek and his enthusiasm shows. The marketing that Six Lakes Realty uses is outstanding. I always felt my property was well exposed and marketed well. John has a lot of experience and enthusiasm and I felt confident I had picked the right person.

I am glad when my property did sell that another Realtor in the Six Lakes office sold it. I went through a seamless closing and was kept informed every step of the way.
As a former practicing Realtor, I would never hesitate to recommend John and his team for any real estate need. Their customer service, knowledge and experience is outstanding!”
