Simply stated, Katie Jo Schmitz exceeded our expectations in every aspect of selling our home—from listing the property to the final closing! She was always professional, knowledgeable about the real estate market in our area, honest and forthcoming with all communications, and genuinely had our  best interests in mind throughout the whole process. We highly recommend Katie Jo Schmitz!

Where to start with my appreciation for Madison City Living! As a nervous first time home buyer, Ryan not only found the perfect home for me and my family, but he made sure all my terms were met and ended up saving me a lot money. And the process was so easy! Katie and Ryan’s enthusiasm was clearly genuine from the beginning and I had no doubt that I was being protected. Madison City Living has tremendous community respect, integrity in hard work and industry knowledge, and a business plan driven by ethics and values. In a business that can make us the most vulnerable, they really are the good guys.

Sue was extremely helpful throughout our entire search. She took the time to understand our needs and being new to the area, she made sure we understood the market we were interested in and provided us with extensive historical data as well as many comparables. Sue was very knowledgeable about the process and was able to give us objective thoughts at every stage so we were able to make a informed decisions. It was so nice to have a kind and friendly face that we trusted to guide us through the entire process!

Katie was by far the most thorough, professional and helpful agent we have worked with in our many years of buying and selling real estate. She went out of her way to facilitate work in the home in our absence and her suggestions for showing the home online and pictures accompanying the listing helped to sell in one day. She is a true 5 star gem!

The thought of entering the Madison real estate market seemed daunting until we joined forces with Ryan of Madison City Living. Ryan regularly sent us new listings, and when a listing appeared in the neighborhood we were targeting, he promptly set up a showing. Once we decided to make an offer, Ryan coached us through the entire process, patiently answering all of our questions and presenting us with options for the different offer components. After our offer was accepted, Ryan kept us on track with completing the necessary closing items, and after we closed, he connected us with a contractor who completed painting and electrical work before our move date. We love our new home, and we are so grateful to Ryan for making the home buying process so smooth and rewarding.

Sue Schmitz was great to work with. She is an extremely positive person and worked very hard at finding a wonderful house for us in a short amount of time. I would highly recommend her.
