Dave Shambeau is without a doubt the best realtor I had the pleasure of working with. Unfortunately there were some problems during the purchase of my home, seller problems. These problems added 60 days to the close. Dave's calm demeanor, level head and keeping me up to date made what was an unbearable situation bearable. You cannot rattle this guy! Dave is extremely accessible, when I called him he would answer but if I had to leave a message he would always return my call promptly. He even answered his phone while on a vacation in Florida. I highly recommend using Shambeau and Thern for all your realty needs.
Dave did an excellent job in the Marketing of our cottage in a difficult market, and in turn was instrumental in helping us negotiate a challenging transaction on the purchase of our new cottage. His knowledge of the Chain of Lakes and grasp of the local real estate market truly makes him a specialist in this area. He is extremely professional with a refreshingly open and honest communication style. He is creative and resourceful in working with his clients, using his years of experience to best assist them through every phase of the transaction. DaveÃ¢'s willingness to go above and beyond to help with the marketing and sale of a property however, is what impressed us the most. We enjoyed working with Dave during the entire process, and certainly would work with him again.
Sharon, I would like to speak to you on behalf of my dad and entire family. From the time Dad conacted you until the final papers were signed you were there for us. You were very professional in every aspect of the sale. I know there were lots of little or should I say big things you were on top of as soon as they arose. You were in constant contact with me in informing me on the status of the sale. Thanks again from the Moe Family God Bless Robert Moe.
Dave is a wonderful man and a great real estate agent. He's the sort of man that anyone would want for a friend! The fact that he's "only" your real estate agent never keeps him from treating you as though you were a long time friend. He is honest, trustworthy and completely real. Dave always apologizes for calling and "doesn't want to be a pest", but his calls always left me telling good about him (and glad I had chosen him to work with) and our relationship never varied-even when things got tense at what I came to call "offer time" He truly is the ideal real estate agent to be honest. He exceeded my expectations in every way. I've dealt with quite a few real estate agents, many of whom had gotten state-wide honors, but working with David was the best experience of it's kind I've ever had- bar none. From now on every agent I deal with will have to measure up to Dave Shambeau. Too bad for them because he will be a terrifically hard act to follow!
David Shambeau and his colleagues were a wonderful team of professionals who went above and beyond the normal Realtors' call of duty. Dave was instrumental in moving our father's house quickly, offering sound advice, and personally handling some potentially sticky situations. Most of our conversations were via phone or e-mail since none of us live in the Waupaca area. We were able to trust Dave whole-heartedly knowing he had nothing but our father's best interest in mind. Dave's expertise and professionalism in liaising between buyer and seller was seamless. We put our trust in him and he delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend Shambeau and Thern to any potential customers.
This message is to send my deepest appreciation for the job that everyone at Shambeau and Thern did to help my family and I get the house of our dreams. LaDonna went above and beyond to not only help me sell my previous house (which was a job within its self) while she was also going throught some major changes of her own. She stuck with me and listened to my needs and earned my trust just like a friend. I will forever be grateful. Dave believed in our quest to find a house we belonged in and put himself out there to help us reach that goal. There are not many Realtors out there that work for YOU like the wonderful people at Shambeau and Thern. Its' nice to know we have you in our community as Realtors, professionals, and friends. Thank You
Selling a house can be very stressful. Dave Shambeau is knowledgeable, professional, and continued to work hard through the time that it took to make the goal of selling our home a success. The staff at Shambeau and Therm work as a team to provide their customers with quality service. We were completely satisfied with the job Dave did.
I'm writing to express our pleasure of working with Jean Grenlie. From the moment that my wife made the call on Labor Day weekend I knew that we had the perfect person(realtor) with complete confidence, caring abilities for helping us find that right place to rebuild or remodel into a place of serenity and comfort. Jean is savvy, personable and knows the homes, area and all those little things that make a sale click. Jean made it a stress-free deal from the first look to closing. I have and will recommend Jean Grenlie to those I know that are looking for and selling properties in the Waupaca area.
Dear Dave, We can't thank you enough for working so hard to sell our mom's house on Miner Lake. From the beginning you seemed like a friend as well as a realtor. Your professionalism and knowledge of the Chain O'Lakes region made a difficult process seem effortless. We really appreciated your quick response to our questions and concerns; a fact even more important because we were "long distance" sellers. Your entire stafff was helpful and friendly, and we were very happy that the "buy and sell" was accomoplished by your office. Thanks again for everyting! Patty Hacker and Jennifer Frisby
I want to thank Jean Grenlie for all her pat ience during our search for a property on the Chain. Jean went up and beyond what was expected of her to help us find our dream home. We called Jean at a moments notice when we were in Waupaca and she was always available to us. Jean never gave up on us even though we asked to see almost every available home on the lakes! Without her help, we probably would not have found a home that fit our family so perfectly. I look forward to spending many years enjoying our beautiful new home on Miner Lake! Thanks again Jean for all your hard work! Brian and Brenda Fox
Thank You in appreciation of all your hard work! Tim and I agree you were a pleasure to work with, you never gave up on us. Thanks. We highly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling. Lastly, your framed picture of the Dake House was above & beyond, thanks for the memory. Once again, thanks you're tops in our memories of Waupaca.
Thanks for all you help in making our home buying as easy as possible. We look forward to seeing you around and would recommend you any day!
I recently purchased a home through Shambeau & Thern Real Estate with LaDonna Sonntag as my Realtor. My experience was quite pleasant, which also describes LaDonna as well. LaDonna was wonderful and very easy to work with. As I had questions, she found answers and got back to me in a timely fashion. LaDonna also returns phone calls, which not all Realtors feel that to be of importance! From start to finish LaDonna was just on the money. I very much appreciate her professional yet fun manner. I would strongly recommend her as a Realtor to anyone, she was just great to do business with! Thank You LaDonna for finding my perfect home! Gratefully, Willy Giacalone
I am eternally grateful to Jean Grenlie for her tenacious quest to help me purchase a home that I am very happy with, after relocating from "the big city". Jean is responsive, direct and customer driven. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor during the transition. Thank you for good work! Jane
If you're looking for a great realtor, Jean Grenlie is the best! On a rating scale of 1-10, we'd give her a 20 for her dedication, communication skills, availability, and connections for making buying or selling work smoothly. She was our listing agent and also sold our home. She was always available when we needed her and she kept us informed all through the process. She was on top of every detail and made sure there were no surprises. We recommend her highly!
Kris, Thank you so much for helping my brother sell his house. You no only found a buyer quickly but convinced them to honor their commitment. Good to see customer service is not dead. It's helping fulfill his dream of being able to move back to Surgeon Bay. The Mattke family thanks you. Sincerely, Mike Mattke (Eugene's little brother)
