Chicagoans have been racing to the shores of Lake Geneva, WI for generations. The small lake town with its mom and pop shops, festivals, activities, and high quality restaurants paired with gorgeous lake views provides a fun yet relaxing change of scenery for the residents of Chicagoland. This, combined with many people’s new remote freedom for work and school, has more people looking for their own home on the lakefront than ever before.
Chicagoland residents make up nearly 50% of Lake Geneva area homeowners. Our dedication to improving the way people buy and sell their homes is how Compass rose to #2 in the Chicagoland real estate market within four years of opening the first Chicago office. We want to provide our clients the same high quality service by extending our Chicagoland business 80 miles to our new offices in Lake Geneva, WI.
On November 17, 2021, Keefe Real Estate joined Compass, bringing with it 80+ real estate professionals in the greater Lake Geneva area. Although Keefe is now known by a new name, their trusted partnership within the community and family-owned values still remain.
Prior to joining Compass, Keefe was the top real estate brokerage in the area, serving the community for 78 years. The agents consistently outperformed the competition in both individual listing volume and overall sales volume, and they have carried that reputation over to Compass. The majority of former Keefe agents are greater Lake Geneva area natives, spending their time walking the lake shore path, raising their families here, and participating in the local community’s organizations. Their familiar faces carry with them storied reputations that buyers and sellers trust. Many agents have worked in the area for decades and pass on the tradition of working in real estate to their next of kin.
Connecting our top notch Chicago team with our new Lake Geneva agents allows us to help our Chicago clients find their second home in the Lake Geneva area faster. Clients from Chicagoland are now able to be paired with our local Lake Geneva real estate experts, removing the guesswork of finding a second home out of state.
While many people may crave a home along the famous Lake Geneva lake shore path or close to the action of downtown, others prefer the quiet waters of Powers Lake, or the relaxed atmosphere of Williams Bay and Fontana. Having a local expert by your side that can help guide them to the locality that will best fit their lifestyle is essential. For those not interested in a traditional home, we have agents that specialize in condos, rental homes and properties, and more!
As much as Compass prides itself on its technology and processes to create a better client experience, our best in class service comes from our agents. Compass is excited to bring our experienced Lake Geneva agents to our Chicagoland clients.
Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a summer home, we are happy to help you find your place in Lake Geneva.
