Olerud Team Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Garrick did a good job explaining the selling process and kept me informed with each showing.

He always responded to all my calls and questions. The marketing pictures and video were excellent. Garrick did well with his negotiations right up to signing. The Olerud team was very kind, considerate and helpful. I would highly recommend the Olerud team.

Deb Stromstad

Brett went over and beyond!

She found my family our dream house! Anytime I needed her she was at my beckoning call. She worked late at night and was there for me early the next morning! Not only is she the best realtor ever, she became my bestfriend! She is the only one, who I will recommend, for all realty needs!

Amber Renee Bergsten (C.N.A.)

Ann Rochen did a fantastic job for me in my purchase of a home/farm in the Driftless Area!

I was purchasing remotely and she did a great job showing me properties, being both prompt and patient with me. And I ended up flying out there and finding and buying EXACTLY PRECISELY what I wanted! She followed up promptly with all issues, I never had to wait or ask twice for something. I was treated like a king. Thanks very very much for everything! Jeff

Jeff Willliams

Working with Emily Weis was a great experience!

We were casually looking for a bigger home to continue to grow a family and had been matched with her through the Zillow process. I'm so happy that Emily was chosen as our realtor because she really made the experience different. She paid special attention to our needs throughout the process and was always available to answer any questions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Michael and Alexandria Derhammer

Mike Clark

Garrick represented our family during the buying and selling process across state boarders.

Garrick provided exceptional support, communication, and management through the home buying process in Wisconsin. Garrick’s expertise and skill helped our family navigate and secure a home purchase in a competitive buyer market. Garrick also represented our family in selling our Minnesota home. He was efficient in negotiating skills in closing a sale. Garrick’s skill, knowledge, and establishment in the community proved to be a match for a competitive Wisconsin market. His ability to cross state boarders and efficiently close a sale proved to match the Minnesota market.

Travis and Jade Mikshowsky

Ann Rochen was fabulous.

She helped us purchase a house in Wisconsin while we live in Montana. Her knowledge of the buying process and attention to details was very comforting to us. Ann helps you find the home you want, not just "showing" you lots of places. Ann has the highest level of integrity of anybody I have met. With her smile and pleasant demeanor, she follows through with every aspect of the home purchase process. In Ann, we have a wonderful friend. I STRONGLY recommend working with Ann Rochen. You will not find better representation. Thank you.

Brad Hastings

With Ann Rochen representing us, we sold our previous home and bought a new one.

Ann responded rapidly to our messages and always cheerfully pursued our requests, whether it was a question of finding the right property or proposing adjustments to contractual agreements. She had excellent ideas of her own, too, which made the process much more comfortable and gave us confidence that all would go well in the sale of our old home and our search for a new one, both of which were rapidly and efficiently accomplished. We would definitely choose Ann and her office again; we have dealt with many realtors in several states, and Ann Rochen is our absolute favorite.

Cinda S. Woodward

Anne was great to work with.

She was able to answer all of my questions, and she was even able to negotiate a great deal for me as a buyer, in spite of it being a seller's market.

Josh Forde

Ashley was incredible in helping us see homes remotely while we were currently not in the state.

She saw a handful of homes for us and sent detailed notes and videos, as well as a couple live FaceTime tours. She guided us through the process to put in an offer, which was accepted! She also did the final walk through for us of a home we can't wait to move to later this month. She was absolutely wonderful to work with - had awesome communication, was prompt, kind, and just a pleasure all around. We strongly recommend her to anyone looking to begin their home buying journey in the area!


Ashley was amazing to work with throughout the entire process.

I was kept informed about every step and always knew what was coming next and what to expect. Highly recommended!! The buying/selling process with Ashley could not have went any smoother!! Thank you!!

Knowing and understanding our situation she went above and beyond. She lead us to the lender we needed at the time and between the two of them we were in our house in about a month. Tina and Karya are a dynamite team.

Sharon Engh

Tina was absolutely wonderful to work with.

She was someone we could talk through everything with and was dedicated to finding us the right home. Tina was understanding and supportive through the process and provided us the attention and dedication we needed.

Bob & Sara Monroe

I highly recommend the Olerud Team to list and/search for a home.

They are top notch and look out for your best interest before, during and after the sale. After consulting with another real estate agency Ann Rochen from the Olerud Team was referred to me. I contacted Ann and within an hour she was at my home. We discussed my goals and desires for the sale. Ann looked at the property from not only the realtor view but also from a buyers perspective. She was able to see additional uses for the land and improvements that a buyer might want. Ann indicated that her goal was for me to get the most for my home and suggested listing my home $25,000 higher than the different agency suggested. The house eventually sold above the asking price. There were alot of ups and downs with the sale of my house. Throughout it all Ann was always looking out for my best interest. She gave me options which allowed me to make informed decisions. When things seemed to be going off course she had a calming effect that always brought it back into focus for me. Ann was always a phone call or text away with quick responses bith day and night. I never had to worry about the paperwork because she had it covered. I am very fortunate and appreciative that Ann was my realtor and definitely recommend her!

Sally Newman (Downsizing )

Garrick and his entire team are wonderful!

We made a sudden decision to sell our house, and they acted quickly to get it listed & on the market in a few short days. They took a lot of the stress away that comes with selling your house! Garrick also helped us with the home buying process.. He is so knowledgeable! He knew all of the right questions to ask the seller and what to look for during our showing. He really looks out for his buyers to make sure it is a good fit. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and was very timely at getting back to us when we had questions. I would HIGHLY recommend the Olerud team!

Holly Olerud

Working with Brett was awesome.

She helped my husband and I find our first home and, even though we had no clue what we were doing, she made the process go as smoothly as possible. Highly recommend working with her for your next real estate purchase.

Kaitlyn Smith-Leis

Bret did a great job!

We had some difficulties with the seller of the property and Bret was very professional in dealing with them. She was very prompt in keeping us in the loop on negotiations. I highly recommend her whether you are looking to buy or sell!

Jesse Mathews

I can only say good things about Garrick, we spent months looking for land to hunt and eventually build our future home on.

In total I believe it ended up being a total of 14 properties we looked at. Garrick spent a lot of time walking through woods with us to find the perfect land to hunt on. After one property falling through just 10 days before closing he continued to help us find what we wanted. We have finally closed on our land in Melrose. Thank You Garrick for everything!!!!!!

Tina Hemmersbach / David Haney

Satisfied, would do business with Garrick again.

Melissa Seland

The Olerud team was wonderful and fast.

We reached out to Ashley before listing and she was wonderful help to get us ready to sell. Actually listing was fast, easy and done beautifully. We received many compliments about the house and sold quickly. Buying was smooth and the Olerud team was very helpful to ensure we knew what our part was in the process. Ashley was wonderful in answering questions in a timely manner as well as adjusting to our schedules for viewing homes and helping us find the perfect home for our family.

Caitlin Wade

Tina Albaugh was great.

.. Her personal attention to my needs as well as the buyers surpassed all expections... Kind, Friendly.... and to her details mattered... Thanks Tina Hope our next sale goes as well GO GIRL Your team is doing great!

Pamela Hass

I did not know Garrick or anyone in his office when I called after seeing an ad for a property auction.

For various reasons, I needed to sell quickly and considered an auction as the way to do that. After visiting the property, Garraick urged me to go with a conventional sale. Garrick and his team did a great job of representing and selling my home, which was a rather unique rural property, including a custom-designed home and four outbuildings. I was concerned as to how the property would be listed and described and in fact had taken photos for use in the listing in case the listing did not capture the unique character of the buildings and setting. To say the least, i was more than pleased at how they represented the property in the listing. They really caught the essence of the place, including aerial drone photos. I didn't feel a need to add a thing to the listing; they captured it. I had 23 showings in three days with potential buyers coming from as far as 300 miles. We had five offers, all well over the asking price. Once the home was sold I had a lot of work to do getting things ready for the move and on two occasions I needed help, in one case literally three days before the movers were coming. Garrick was able to provide referrals to really good, supportive people who helped me out at reasonable cost. In summary, Garrick and his entire team did a great job not just with the mechanics of listing and selling the home but providing the reassurance, guidance and information I needed for the process. There were no surprises. No curve balls and no BS. I feel completely comfortable recommending the entire Olerud Team for those looking to buy or sell property.

Mark L Taylor

They helped us find out forever home.

They got the time to know our family and help us. They are so accommodating and friendly. I wouldn’t have had any other realty company

Brittany Burnham (Registered Nurse )

Deborah Betz

The Olerud Team made our transition from selling to buying our homes very stressful and worry free.

This was a much better process than the 1st time we sold a house with a different realtor. I can not say enough good things about Garrick and his team, very professional, honest, straight forward yet friendly and caring of every aspect of the selling and buying of our homes. We cannot thank him enough for everything!!!

Aime Arndt (Sold and bought thru Olerud Team)

Jane Ennis

The transaction was easy, and the process was accomplished in a timely manner.

Bret was an outstanding source of information, and she is very professional and does her job very well. I give the team an A+.

Trent Briggs (Quality Assurance Director )

Bret was our first Realitor we have ever delt with, and an exceptional first at that.

She made the process as simple and easy as she had the power to. The financial company we delt with was a real pain in the rear, but no matter what problems we had or what questions we had Bret was always there to answer and try to figure out any solutions she could even if it wasn’t her problem. She has become a family friend through the whole house buying process and we are so thankful that we had her as our Realitor! I would recommend her to anyone that was in the house buying market in the area! 10/10 would recommend. Hope to have her there for our next home purchase in the future! Thank you 1000x Sincerly Tyler Polka.

Tyler Polka

I highly recommend Garrick and his team and would use them again for future transactions!

Sandra K Proksch-Troope

Garrick and his team did an exceptional job selling our family’s property.

They had a quick response time getting back to us for questions, helpful and knowledgeable with the many issues that came up, and they showed their professionalism throughout the sale. Our property was put on the market in September and the deal closed the first week of December! We will definitely be recommending the Olerud team to others who are in the market to sell!

Dan Jackson

Mark did a wonderful job assisting me in helping my parents find a home that would meet their needs.

He was prompt and easy to talk to and he explained things well when questions were presented to him. I would highly recommend him. Sincerely, Jody Kliscz

Jody Kliscz (Business Owner)

We bought and sold thru The Olerud team and can not say enough about how well they did to make the process as stress free and worry free as possible.

Garricks team are very professional yet make you feel like a part of a family, not just buying or selling a home. We highly recommend his team for any buyers or sellers! Thank you again Garrick and your team, you've done amazing work for us!

LInda Kica (Executive Director)

Made selling our house so simple and easy!

Highly recommend!

Paige Welch

The Olerud Team is the most helpful and knowledge team one could ask for when buying/selling a house.

From start to finish, my wife and I enjoyed not having to worry about much of anything because the Olerud Team organized and took care of it all. They listed, organized showings, had an open house and sold our house super quick! They also helped make our buying process as stress free as it could have been. Thanks so much for you help - we would recommend them to anyway!

Alleck Olerud (Seller )

The Olerud team provided excellent and professional service.

They care about the experience of what can be a stressful time, and are totally committed to helping you achieve home ownership.

Brett Sebion

I was purchasing a lot in Wisconsin while based in Ohio.

The team was very helpful in providing me with information and answers to the questions I needed and meeting me at the lot site for a walkthrough. I very much appreciated their efforts.

Adam Bangtson

Garrick was helpful from the moment we met him, careful to listen to our “desired home” description, and thoughtful as we went into the market.

He was timely with his responses and willing to be flexible to our schedules. He was always willing to provide helpful advice as we navigated the market and specific homes. As the search took a long time we never felt we lost Garrick’s attention, rather he kept his tenacity to find us something we would enjoy, guiding our search process over the year, especially during the added difficultly of 2020. We are thankful to be in the home we ended in and are so thankful we were recommended to work with Garrick and the entire Olerud Team!

David and Anne Hartberg

Olerud Team was great to deal with!

! Very friendly and knowledgeable!!

Randy Lunde

The Olerud team has been very professional and helpful in the execution of the sale of our properties.

They are easy to work with, have a well rounded knowledge of the area and potential clients. They are very careful to assure that everyone involved in the transaction is kept up to speed on the progress. We plan to continue to use them for our ongoing property sales and call upon them if we wish to purchase other properties.

Jane Meyer (President of Lan-Bar, Corp)

The Agents, Brokers and Coordinators at NextHome Westby are second to none.

They are some of the most dedicated and detailed staff I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Because of their diligence and commitment, I was able to quickly close on a house that matched my needs. If you’re new to buying a home or a seasoned property purchasing veteran, I recommend giving them a call. For new buyers, their staff will sit with you and help you figure out your needs. Honesty is paramount, especially when making such a large purchase. Your agent will let you know if a property is over or under priced. They are skilled in such that they can help identify potential pitfalls with the property or the purchase well before it becomes a risk to you as the buyer. Agents alongside their coordinating support staff works grueling hours to ensure any property you list is online in time and any purchase in-flight meets its deadline. Not to mention the tools they use include top of the line drones for pictures and 3D modeling to support virtual tours for those buyers who are remote. My recent home purchase took around four months to find the right fit. My agent scoured all their resources and found a perfect match for my needs. During the engagement I was willing to settle on a property that didn’t quite match what I was looking for. I was exhausted in my search; however, my agent was relentless and resolute. Thankfully I followed her advice, did not purchase the initial property and within four weeks I found what I was looking for. Not only do I highly recommend their realty services, but I will enlist their services for all future listing and buying needs.

Pete R. (IT Manager)

The Olerud team at Next Home was absolutely amazing.

Not only do they make the entire process a breeze they truly care about their customers whole heartedly. I would recommend them to anyone.

Brittney Sperber

Lindsey was a great realtor!

She is extremely kind, very easy and comfortable to talk to. Right away I felt secure and trusted that she really did want to work in my best interest, and she did. She was very knowledgeable about the entire house buying process and extremely quick to answer my questions or find the answers. I would definitely recommend Lindsey to my family and friends looking for a realtor!

Amanda Milde (Aquatic Biologist)

Working with Tina and her team was a dream on the sale of our property.

She made the sale a breeze and was happy to answer any of the questions that we had. She took the time to accommodate our busy schedules and remained positive and cheerful the entire time from early morning texts and emails to late night phone calls. I highly recommend Tina and her team!

Christy Carter

Garrick did an outstanding job finding us options that fit our needs.

Dalton Zimmerman

Bret was amazing to work with.

From the very start she was responsive and willing to work with us on finding a home. We moved from a different state, so finding time to travel to the area had to be a little more spontaneous than normal. She was game! It gave us so much reassurance as first time home buyers to have a realtor that understood our needs, was honest, humble and reliable. Being a mom herself, she helped us as if we were family and her kids, which made us feel even better. We recommend her to anyone, especially families looking for a home.

Samantha Polka

We had plenty of trouble selling my house, we had problems and it took us 2 years.

Garrick was our third realtor but he managed to sell the place and get a good price, too. Until now, I considered most realtors on a level with meth cooks and bicycle thieves. But Garrick did a good job and we would highly recommend him.

James Hoban (Mr. )

Tina was simply amazing.

She was patient with all our questions, quick to respond and great follow up. If she wasn’t available, a member of her team followed up.

Deanna Teklics (Buyer)

Ann Rochen was amazing, I was living in Virginia and wasn’t able to meet her in person and felt comfortable enough with her to purchase a home.

A few years later I was due for a promotion and sold the same home in less than 30 days on the market with Ann, a full price offer.

Chris michael

The knowledge and creativity that Leah used when listing our farm was top notch.

She worked very hard on the details and handled any questions promptly. We had no worries through out our experience, just excitement! Thanks Leah and the Olerud Team!

Brandon Doll

Hard working & professional!

Aaron Cade

From the beginning to the end, Bret has been extremely patient and helpful.

I am a first home buyer, and I had no idea what I was doing or getting myself into. Bret directed and guided me into the right directions. The seller tried to back out on the day before closing but Bret worked some magic and got the seller to stick to their guns. I highly recommend Bret.

Zachary hogenson

Mark Oldenburg was great to work with.

He stayed on top of things throughout the process. We will recommend Mark to others for real estate business.

John V. DeMuth (Homeowner)

Tina Allbaugh worked very hard to help us find hunting land.

She is a great resource for the Driftless region. Our first showing was done on the coldest day of winter using snowshoes

Peter Brandt

The Olerud team was great to work with on the sale of our property.

They worked to get me the best price and made the transaction easy.

Christy Carter

Cole did a great job with helping sell my property.

He was always available for questions, did multiple open houses, and most important was him keeping the buyers lender on track and engaged. Without Cole staying in constant communication with the lender the deal could've easily fell apart. Behind the scenes The Olerud Team was also great with marketing the property and the wealth of knowledge and experience

James H.

We were so lucky to have Gerrick’s help with our house hunt.

His level of expertise and and knowledge made buying our first home an enjoyable, and much less stressful, experience. He was always straightforward and thoughtful in his feedback, and was very responsive to our many questions throughout the process. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home!

Abbey Fabick (Policy Analyst )

Bret Michelle Doll stuck with us through two months our continuing question “have you heard anything yet?

” as we waited for answers to be able to close on our home. She was on top of everything and handled the unique and stressful situation we encountered with ease. She was always only a phone call or text away and constantly reassured us that things would work out. Because of her we have the home we do. Thank you bret!! - the Radratt crew

Aimee Radsek

On a whim, we decided to go look at a house that was way out of our price range.

I thought, "There is no way we are going to be able to afford this place". Garrick then suggested seeing what he thought we could get for our house...and (amazingly) six days later it was sold. There were countless negotiations, addendums, counter-offers and questions along the way and the Olerud Team always had an answer for us. We were not easy sellers/buyers to work with, yet Garrick and his team were always very professional, helpful, patient, kind, knowledgeable, etc...and sealed the deal on our dream home. We are very grateful and appreciative of everything the Olerud Team did for us and I would recommend working with them in a heartbeat!

Charles Curtis (Teacher)

Bret is Amazing.

Not only a realtor, but a friend now! Always available, so sweet and great spirit! The office staff took care of all the details and we didn't worry about anything! We have a beautiful home and we are looking forward to working with this team again in the future.

Amy Owen

Great team!

Awesome to work with, got our house sold at asking price in under 2 months.

Stephen Horner (Electrician )

We worked with Ann from the Olerud Team for about a year and she was phenomenal!

She organized showings of multiple houses, answered any and all of our questions (trust me, we had A LOT of questions), was quick and knowledgeable with responses, and was always patient with us through it all. Her professionalism and kindness made everything stress free. We are beyond fortunate to have worked with Ann and highly recommend her!

Zachary Dickman (Home Buyer)

Garrick was great to work with and helped make this process so easy.

He was very professional and helped the family and I get the home cleaned out and cleaned up. I would recommend Garrick to anyone looking to buy or to sell. In my job, I assist clients with home sales all the time and this was made so easy by Garrick. It is great to work with such a kind and professional realtor.

Laurie Golden (Program Manager)

Garrick has been our go-to realtor for years and this latest experience with him and his team confirmed why we've always worked with him.

He is knowledgeable, professional, supportive, and patient. He is always willing to answer any question, walk us through a process that we don't understand, and support us at all hours of the day. He's very prompt with communication and takes his role as our guide through the process of buying or selling a home very seriously. We trust Garrick wholeheartedly and highly recommend him as a realtor!

Amber Wendorf

Tina was great.

She was always available to show us properties, even with short notice. She was helpful in finding our home and all the way thru to closing. Thanks!

Bill & Kristin Cottrell

Did a great job took care of everthing for use.

Would recommend them to anyone.

Gary Nelson (Trustee)

Ann was exceptionally helpful in the sale of my 93 yr old father's house.

She kept us informed as to what was up ahead and how we should prepare for it. She also went above and beyond to rectify a contingency issue for us: she recommended a company, and then handled the remediation process herself. (very helpful to us as we live over an hour away). Finally, she cheerfully answered all of our questions (of which there were many). We appreciated her professionalism, encouragement and cheerfulness throughout the entire process.

It was quick, easy, no hassle sale. Would definitely recommend him to everyone. Thank you Garrick, it was great working with you.

John Jothen

I have know Garrick for a few years now, so when we needed a realtor he was our choice.

I have always thought that he is a flat go getter. And he was very impressive to work with in this sale. I can't say too much about his whole team, they are all great ! I brag the Olerud Team up with everyone that I can.

Ruby Key

Ann is awesome to work with.

She answered all our questions and helped us throughout the entire home buying process. Ann is kind, caring and very responsive.

Shannon Wamsley

The Olerud team was instrumental in assisting us with the sale of our property.

It was a smooth and painless process and I'd recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a property to reach out the Olerud team at NextHome.

Andrew R. (IT Professional)

Ashley Erickson did a great job in selling my property.

She kept me informed on what was going on and explained every piece of paperwork. I will work with Ashley again.

Dennis R Pennel

The negotiations where tense.

Brett stuck with us showing professionalism throughout. I highly recommend Brett to anyone I know seeking to buy or sell realestate


Our experience with Brett Doll was extraordinarily pleasant and wonderful!

She is knowledgable, courteous, patient and always smiling. Will always call her if we ever need to look for, or sell a home again. Is a pleasure to know her. The staff who took the pictures and made the virtual tour were also very nice; and the virtual tour was extremely professional.

Wayne and Pamela Kerrigan

Garrick was our realtor when we purchased our home and he was so easy to work with.

He is knowledgeable and efficient. He did a superb job! When we had a property to sell we didnt hesitate, we knew Garrick and the Olerud Team was our choice. Garrick was so supportive and represented us and our needs/goals for our sale. His knowledge and ability to work with people is top notch. Our friends and family know where they will go if needed and that is the Olerud team. Thank you Garrick.

Tina is the best- she was communicative and knowledgeable about the area we were house hunting in- knew all the ins and outs of SW Wisconsin.

She helped us negotiate and communicate with a few different sellers before we landed on the house we wanted, and she was fast and patient throughout it all. We will be using Tina for all our future real estate needs.

James Mackessy

Ashley did a great job selling our home.

She was informative and responsive to all our questions. She walked us through what to expect in the process and was very kind when doing so.

Donita Meyer

Bret was wonderful to work with.

She was patient and helpful and went the extra mile. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Trudy Sheedy Tinoco

Bret was wonderful to work with.

It took a long time to find what we were looking for and she spent countless hours driving and looking at properties until we found what we wanted. She was there every step of the way in the process and make sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommend Bret and will use her again in the future if needed.

Scott Larson

I would recommend her to anyone always good at responding and getting answers if she doesn’t know.

Evan Goodwater (Buyer)

Leah was so pleasant, accommodating, knowledgeable, and advised us through the whole process of assessing homes and then all through the financing/purchase of the home we finally chose to buy.

The whole experience was completely different and more difficult in the present market ,than the last time we bought 26 years ago! We feel like she became a friend and appreciate all the help she provided! Kind regards, Sue and John

John/Susan Kellogg

Great to work with and stayed on top of everything.

Answered questions we had regardless of the time. Always stayed in constant communication with us. Very awesome to work with.

Kyle Leis

Garrick Olerud and Anne Rochen worked with me and my family tirelessly, for over two years, to help us find a property in southern Wisconsin that met the needs of four people with differing views on what that property should look like and should contain.

They help identify, shared details, and showed us over 100 properties in southern Wisconsin. They guided us through state laws while making offers and working through several contingent offers for a property near Reedsburg which contained hunting, farming and fishing features while being close to a modern small town with safety and medical capabilities. They helped us locate bankers, attorneys, and a title company for the final settlement. They were excellent and played a key part in our successful purchase.

Jack Jackson (Colonel (USAF Retired))

We knew we made the right decision in choosing Bret as our realtor on day one.

She did an amazing job of listening to what we were looking for and finding those properties. Bret was very knowledgeable on what the houses would need for approval for a VA home loan and walked us through every step. For a process that is as stressful as home buying she made sure she did everything in her power to relieve some of that stress! When we found “The Home” Bret was there at any time to answer our questions as well as keep us on track with any and all paperwork. We know without a doubt this experience wouldn’t have been as amazing without her!

Kayla Holthaus

Leah was fantastic thru a very long frustrating closing (All the seller's fault!

). She worked tirelessly to get things in order and had my back when issues arose. I would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller.

Jim Fitterer

I appreciated the help that NextHome gave me.

I had a fair number of questions and they were able to get me the answers I needed. I would recommend NextHome to others.


I worked with Leah Brueggen to purchase some hunting land.

She was incredibly helpful and educated to answer any questions I had along the way. Leah is truly a good person who is dedicated to her work.

Kevin Donlon

Always kept me inform.

Terrific service


Ann Rochen is a true professional.

She made my home purchase easy and I strongly recommend her to friends and family.


Garrett Olerud did an exceptional job, once again, in the sale of a home we owned in Readstown, WI.

I highly recommend calling Garret.

Lois Deckert

The Olerud team went above and beyond for me and my fiancé.

They were so amazing and patient with us when we were trying to look at homes and I would like to give a shout out to Ashley for being so awesome and driving all over with us to look at houses. We really appreciate everything you guys have done for us, especially in the end of our home buying process. I would recommend this team to anyone who is looking to sell or buy. They are amazing and truly put you first.

Cali Streif

Ashley was amazing to work with.

This was my first time buying and Ashley helped with every question I had regardless of the severity. I was also buy from out of state and was not able to travel until closing so the virtual tours (and there were many) were very detailed appreciated. Thank you Olerud Team, But Ashley you're the Best!!

Richard Gonzales

While Garrick was not our realtor during the process of purchasing our home (we didn't have a realtor) he was great at explaining the process to my husband and I and he always answered any and all of our questions.

He is very professional and I would highly recommend him. If we sell any property in the future we would certainly contact him to represent us.

Teresa Reser

The Olerud Team was great to work with!

They were a capable and knowledgeable team that helped out with anything that came up and helped everything to flow as smoothly as possible. I would definitely recommend them!

Stephen Horner (Electrician )

Ann Rochen is a great realtor!

She always had our back when it came time to negotiate. She was very knowledgeable and encouraging as we were considering what offers to make and accept. She made the home buying process feel stress free and easy. She is our #1 realtor recommendation!

Megan Feirtag (Homebuyer)

A great experience overall!

Our realtor, Bret Doll, was excellent to work with. Very patient, knowledgeable, and pleasant. She made the home buying/selling process much less stressful.

Thomas Almonroeder

10/10 recommend Leah B!

She is a wonderful realtor to work with; she listens, is very responsive and cares for the needs of her clients! Things that were important to me to have in a home, she looked for!

Jecole (Client)

Garrick was great to work with!

He had an answer to all of our questions and helped guide us through our first home buying experience. He made everything so easy. We can't recommend him enough!

Katie Gillespie

Excelent job!

Ann looked out for our families best interests through the entire process of looking for and buying our home.

Gregory Pfaff (SSG )

Tina worked hard to help us find the “right fit” hunting property.

We kept chasing leads and finally caught up to one. She found that lead because of her strong effort ( it was a for sale by owner). We lost out on a few before that but Tina kept working hard for us. She has a great knowledge of her market. A final comment is: on our first property showing with her which was on SuperBowl Sunday and was the coldest day of the year, she showed up on snowshoes to get the job done. Thanks Tina!

Peter Brandt

We were so thankful to have the Olerud team there to help us find the home of our dreams and sell our home.

They are extremely professional and detailed oriented. They were always there to answer any of our questions. The Olerud team was amazing to work with and we definitely recommend them!

Lindsey and Travis Kuennen

I couldn't be happier very knowledgeable and easy to work with answered all our questions in timely manner and helped us tremendously

Tyler Holthaus (Correctional Officer)

Bret was amazing, really helpful and would make sure to find tje answers to any questions you may have


It was great working with Garrick.

He was patient with us in finding a house, and answered our many questions we had. He made the home buying experience a bit easier on us, and we are grateful for his experience and time.


Friendly and very pleasant to work with.

Randy Gillen (Business Owner)

Leah was wonderful!

We were first time home buyers and she made the home buying process so much less stressful and made sure we understood each step in the process. She was responsive and kind and we are so grateful. Thank you!

Lily Wehtje

Tina was great to work with.

She was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to advise us on the pro's and cons of each property. She also allowed us to spend as much time as necessary hiking the property to see what it had to offer. She never rushed us or made us feel like we were taking up too much of her time. She was a great realtor, but has also become a friend because of the process. I highly recommend her for your next property search.

Stephanie Bartley (Director of Biological Science Research-UW Madison Department of Surgery)

I highly recommend the Olerud Team for purchasing a house.

I worked with Christina Murray and although I was her first home sale ever, she was wonderful. If she wasn't sure about something, she had many resources helping her. Her boss has been great to work with when dealing with the property I purchased. Again, highly recommended.

Tonya Krug

My husband stumbled upon Garrick when we were looking for a good realtor.

Glad he did because Garrick was AWESOME! He was there every step of the way when we bought our first house. He was flexible with our schedule and even showed us some houses on Christmas eve when he should be spending it with his family. He made the whole process so easy! We'd definitely use him again!

Lalaine Thiese (Analyst)

Ann was amazing to work with.

We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to help sell our home and purchase our forever home. I highly recommend Ann. She was great at communicating and keeping us in the loop.

johanna hirschfield (Ann Rochen)

Ann was great.

She took care of everything and made selling our home super easy.

Penny Hanson

We were very pleased we chose Garrick and his team for selling my Mom's rural property.

He assisted us through the liquidation of personal property and sold the real estate in fairly short order. He was attentive to communication and remained patient and intuitive to how emotional selling your homestead is after 50 years.

Victoria Ruetten

Leah and the Olerud Team at NextHome really made my home purchase smooth and simple.

Even during COVID restrictions, they made sure that the process kept going with inspections and closing. I appreciate their work and would recommend them to others.

Adam Goodberg

Tina did an excellent job with the purchase of our property.

She was very prompt with all the information and paperwork. Her communication was very good and everything was timely. Thanks again.

Barry Grimm

There is not enough stars!

We were ready to sell our beloved house. We were given Bret Doll's name and from the 1st meeting with her, we were friends. Bret is so personal and knowledgeable about her passion for helping people - if it's selling their house; helping people moving - finding movers, to helping people get their house in order; or small repairs that need to be done to get top dollar for your house. That is the Bret Doll we know!! Communcation was never a problem - Bret kept us so well informed about everything and answered questions in a timely matter. She would come over when I was packing to make sure if there was anything she could help me with. She was great at checking our schedule when someone wanted to see our house. I can't say enough positive things about Bret Doll - professional, dedicated, knowledgeable. smart, fantastic and we are proud to call her a friend! We would highly recommend her!

Kathleen and Frank Schwartz

This is the second time we have worked with Garrick specifically and first time with the Olerud team.

It is clear that the team has taken on many of the great attributes that Garrick possesses. It was clear that they would do everything within their own power to get our family into the home that was going to be best for us. I think that may be the biggest compliment to a real estate team that can be given and it also comes along with their promptness in all matters of communication and other actions needed.

Nate Palmer

Garrick was great to work with throughout the whole process of selling our house.

He was very professional and knowledgeable and gave us great advise. He was always available to answer our questions and everything went smoothly. We were grateful for all that Garrick did in selling our house and would highly recommend the Olerud Team.

Rachel Berra

Tina did the best possible job she could with the tools she had to work with.



The Olerud Team was exceptional.

,patient, kind, persevering in helping me to find the right house close to my family, two blocks away. Thank you so much. Now my grandchildren can safely walk to my house. Did I mention good-hearted, enduring and knowledgeable. I recommend them to anyone looking to move. Thank you.

Joelle Houze (Retired)

We had a small acreage of land to sell and sought Garrick’s help to see it through.

We chose Garrick because he was highly recommended from those he’s previously worked with and his ability to generate interest in properties was positive. He put together a sales strategy, provided guidance, dealt with some unforeseen hurdles, and saw it through to a successful conclusion with the sale of our property in a few months. The Olerud team and NextHome did a great job!!!

Daryl Steinke

Totally professional, dedicated, and hard working realtor.

Our house was at a higher price point, so it definitely needed the "right" buyer. The Olerud Team understood what it took to connect property and buyer, and they succeeded. They get my highest recommendation!

Richard Brown

Garrick sold a lot for us.

The process went smoothly & we couldn’t be more satisfied.

Carol Brye (Seller)

My first experience selling a home was effortless, thanks to Ann and the Olerud team.

Ann and staff were able to explain the process to me, answered any questions I had and were prompt in returning texts and emails! I would highly recommend Ann and her staff!
