What clients are saying...
Greatly appreciated how thorough Ryan and the entire team were. Highly communicative, thoroughly professional.
My boyfriend & I were eager to buy or first home, in what we knew was a very hot and intense market. We had no idea what our style or wants & needs were coming into the showings, but Ryan was extremely patient and made sure to answer all of our questions. Ryan really went above and beyond throughout the whole process, and truly exceeded any expectation we could ever have. Not only was he quick to set up showings (sometimes 5 in one day!), but made sure to explain every detail & look for things the we probably wouldn't, which I'm sure other realtors would overlook, too. The home we ended up purchasing was one actually found by Ryan, and he thought we would really like. He was right! We closed on an amazing home, and truly couldn't have done it without him. He made this experience a fun & exciting one, and we missed seeing him on the weekends for showings once we had an accepted offer! We are recommending Ryan to all of our friends & family that are going to be looking soon. We'll be in touch for future homes as well!
Ryan is knowledgeable, thorough, and dedicated to client satisfaction. Great people skills. My tenants thought he was great. His advice and attention to detail made our sale fast and almost stress free.
Ryan was able to work with us as we moved from WI to Arizona and make the sale of our our WI home almost seemless.
Very professional, attentive to details and our needs and advising without pushing for a particular point of view. All realtors should model the work ethics Ryan displays.
Mel Mulcahy was our realtor for the past year as we navigated our journey to first-time homeownership. In this chaotic market, Mel held our hand as we toured, wrote offers, and ultimately built our own home. When we lost a few bidding wars for homes (with over 30 offers made on that home - thanks, 2020!), Mel worked tirelessly to help us write more and more competitive offers, while still keeping a vigilant eye on our interests and experience as first-time buyers. She was exceptionally responsive, patient with our endless questions, full of integrity and poise through the highs and lows. She offered creativity and a competitive edge is such a crazy market, and went above and beyond to get us everything we needed and more to find our home. We are SO thankful we chose Mel as our realtor - and even get to enjoy following her on her professional realtor Instagram account post-purchase for home ownership tips! Choose Mel as your realtor, look no further, she's an exceptional asset to have in your corner.
As first-time home buyers, with no experience, we could not have asked for a better realtor! Diving into the housing market, during this crazy time, was extremely scary and Melissa educated and supported us along every step of the way. She really took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home and found us options that were not even listed! Melissa always put our needs as the buyers first and would show us any listing at the drop of a hat! Her organization and attention to detail was amazing, providing us with detailed timelines and reminders every step of the way through the closing process! We highly recommend Melissa to anyone buying or selling a home!
Melisa was the BEST! She was not a used car salesman . She was far more interested in getting us in a house that we were going to love, than making a sale. We looked at over 25 houses, tried to buy about 8 of them and failed prior to getting the one we got. I would strongly recommend her for all home buyers and sellers or any age or experience level.
Ryan was great and not only helped us buy a house in a very competitive market but also helped us navigate the sale of our old house which, for various reasons outside of anyone's control, became very complicated. We were very glad to have Ryan on our team throughout the entire process of buying and selling and can't recommend him highly enough!
I'm very happy with my realtor, Ryan. He was always patient and educating me about the process. He was calm, cool, and collected even when I was not. Through his thoughtful work, I was able to get 20k over asking price!
Choosing Ryan as our Buyer's agent was the single most best decision we have made in search of a home. Ryan is very knowledgeable not only about the home purchase process, but also about the homes themselves. We learned so much about what to look for when purchasing a home as well as how to maintain the home once purchased. Ryan was so good at his job, that we actually missed going out house hunting with him once the purchase was made. It was because of Ryan that we are now in our beautiful home. The market was extremely competitive, but that didn't stop Ryan from creatively finding us a home that was perfect for our family. I strongly recommend Ryan to anyone that's looking to purchase or sell a home. He will ALWAYS have our business. Thank you Ryan!
having been in our existing home for nearly 40 years the ins and outs of the modern housing market were a mystery to us. after meeting with Ryan we were confident he was the right person to guide us through the process and obtain the best price possible for our home. that decision proved to be correct. we will be recommending Ryan to anyone who is looking for a real estate broker
Our family recently hired Ryan Wendel to sell our Shorewood duplex. Throughout the entire process, his customer service was at the highest level. Our transaction involved some complexities related to post closing occupancy and existing tenants. Ryan managed every step of the process in a knowledgeable, professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Ryan and the Mulcahy Wendel team to anyone considering selling their property in the Milwaukee area.
Working with Melissa and Ryan was a fantastic experience for buying our first home. My wife and I had spent about a year using Redfin and Zillow but knew we needed an agent with houses selling so quickly. Melissa is kind, professional, knowledgeable, fun, supportive, and very organized. She sought to understand what we were looking for in a home, and even as we changed the type of home we ended up buying due to the market, she remained flexible and provided us with excellent market analysis. She and her team were willing to show us any listing at the drop of a hat, helped us with writing a competitive offer that would stand out, ensured all contingencies were met, and made sure we were prepared when it came time for inspections and closing. I highly recommend Melissa and her team for any of your real estate needs!
Ryan did an excellent job helping us through the home buying process. He helped us identify potential issues with the houses that we looked at and was proactive in helping us find properties. We will gladly refer him to friends who are looking to buy or sell a house.
I am a first time buyer, to say that I was nervous was an understatement. Ryan Wendel was amazing! He was incredibly responsive, supportive and incredibly patient with my never ending questions. He also recommended Scott Dewey with Wisconsin Mortgage, who it turns out my brother also used. What a great team! I will recommend them both to everyone and Shorewest. Thank you for an amazing experience.
Great experience working with Ryan. We have now had multiple real estate transactions with him and he has really helped to make the process very smooth for us. Would highly recommend him as a real estate agent and would certainly work with him again in the future. Overall, very pleased with the level of service we received from Ryan and his team at Shorewest.
Melissa was a wonderful ally and asset to have as we looked for our first home. She was patient and thorough and always supportive. She kept in mind our needs and wish list and tailored the experience so it would be as relevant to us a possible. With how quickly things move in this market it was great having her in our corner as we all proactively searched and she kept us from getting too frustrated when things didn't work out. Melissa Mulcahy is an excellent agent and a wonderful person. We were very lucky to have been able to navigate such a stressful life milestone with someone who got the best out of us and the best for us.
Ryan's knowledge and attention to detail was incredibly valuable throughout the entire process of both buying our new house and selling our home. He has a deep understanding of the market, specifically what to be aware of in foundations/basements, and is very honest on his opinions of what houses are really worth. Would never use anyone else and we recommend him to anyone even remotely considering buying or selling a home!
Ryan was amazing through the pre-sale, sale and search for our new house that spanned 18 months. Awesome knowledge and cares for his clients.
Ryan was fantastic throughout the entire process. He was very thorough explaining all the documents. He kept us informed immediately and was willing to meet us whenever and wherever to make the whole process easy.
It took a while for my wife and I to find perfect home. As first home buyers we were very inexperienced with the entire process. Melissa was absolutely amazing. She helped us understand every step and made our buying experience significantly less stressful. Melissa was there for us and available, which is extremely important. It's is incredible feeling when you have someone that has your best interest. Without Mel we would not be able to find and buy our first home. We would definitely recommend Melissa to everyone as we will work with her again in the future. Dusan and Sofija
Ryan was great to work. He explained every step in detail to our mom throughout the process.
Ryan was an amazing, experienced, and knowledgeable partner in the venture of figuring out what we would like in and actually finding our new home. He was always available, patiently explaining and weighing options, and constantly advocating for our interests as buyers. Couldn't have done it without him!
Ryan is everything one would want in a realtor - knowledgeable, professional, punctual - he truly wants the best for his clients, not simply a quick transaction. Touring homes with him is like touring with an inspector, he notices and draws attention to things we would have never even thought of! Every step of the way, Ryan took the time to explain each document we encountered and we felt 100% confident going into closing. We would highly recommend his services to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in the Milwaukee area.
Working with Ryan made the home buying and selling process extremely smooth. We knew exactly when everything needed to happen and there was open communication at all times. It was by far the best experience we could have hoped for and exceeded our expectations.
Ryan was a joy to work with. He was extremely efficient, professional, and knowledgeable about every aspect of the sale. If we had any questions he couldn't answer immediately, he was very quick to get an answer for us. Since we were out of town for the majority of the sale, we really relied on Ryan to manage all the loose ends of dealing with contractors and agents, and he did a fantastic job at that. He went way above the typical expectations required of a realtor. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone in their home buying sale or search--especially in the Glendale area.
Ryan's service was just superb! We k;new where we wanted to buy and Ryan set up a computer system that would notify him when a housing unit become available. He monitored it himself to prevent the (frequent) confusion that we experienced. When a unit became available he immediately notified us and arranged with the seller for a showing the next day. He was helpful and insightful during the tour of the condo. When we liked it, he immediately sat down with us and helped us make an offer to purchase. He made sure that all the necessary documents were completed and submitted that same day. By the next morning the offer was accepted. We feel that had it not been for his quick action and expertise we might not have had the opportunity to purchase. In large part we believe that we owe our ownership to his quick action. He also followed up with all of the necessary steps to buying with an explanation for every question. We were really pleased and grateful for all of his help and love our new home.
Ryan is a wonderful Releater, he worked hard and help us sell our home on timely manner, has excellent approach to clients.
As first-time home buyers, we had zero experience with any part of the process and could not have asked for a better educator and helping hand than Melissa Morello Mulcahy. From beginning our search to signing our closing documents (and beyond!), Melissa was exactly the kind of partner you hope to work with in any and all business matters. The ultimate professional, she always put our needs as buyers first. We felt completely comfortable in her capable hands; her service was always polite, timely, and triple-checked. Her knowledge of the North Shore and greater Milwaukee area (as a native herself) guided us immensely in our search. And the support from her wider Mulcahy-Wendel team made us feel certain that we were handling every part of the process in the correct way. We would recommend Melissa to anyone buying or selling a home!
Ryan did a great job of helping us submit an offer that was accepted. Then he helped us negotiate what we should ask for on improvements/fixes after inspection; which we got most of what was asked for. He was very responsive on all our questions and follow up work all the way up to and through closing. Thanks Ryan!
We really appreciated all the work Ryan did for us while selling our home. He was very knowledgeable about the seller experience and provide us with many resources along the way. Ryan was always very positive and supportive during the whole process. This was a very emotional, and at times stressful life event for us, but he was very encouraging and helped us stay focused on the end game. We were out of town several times during the process and he was always willing to step in to make sure things continued to move forward. We would definitely highly recommend Ryan to any one buying or selling a home.
John and Ryan displayed a very very high level of patience with us. K and I are so fortunate that we chose them as our realtors. Without them we would still be renting
Very happy with the team. Would gladly refer them to anyone looking to buy or sell a condo or house. Both were very helpful in physically evaluating the condos we looked at. All the paperwork was flawlessly prepared. The details were explained to us with great patience.
We've known Mel for several years and couldn't be more impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail, drive and positive, outgoing personality!
Mel was a pleasure to work with. She responded immediately to all of our requests and questions and made us feel comfortable with every step in the process of looking for our dream home. She is very hardworking and on top of her game and yet never comes across as rushed or forceful. We are so thankful to have Mel as our realtor!!!
You will not find another human being that works harder for you than Melissa Morello Mulcahy. Her communication and organizational skills make her a dream to work with. This enthusiastic go-getter will make your home buying experience not only exponentially easier, but enjoyable as well.
I have known Mel for years and she has always been a professional, energetic, and positive person. She is also probably one of the most driven people I know. She has an unparalleled ability to make you feel like a priority. One more than one occasion she has dropped personal plans to help myself and my wife as we were planning our wedding. There are few people I can rely on more than Melissa Mulcahy.
Melissa is a go getter! She will treat every client with a passion and energy that embodies her personality and her work ethic. A wonderful addition to Shorewest!
There is no one I would trust more then Melissa to sell my house or buy a new home. Her professionalism and attention to detail are a huge asset during the buying and selling process.
Our search for a home began on a whim. We saw a house that popped up on one of the many real estate sites and wanted to take a look ASAP. We filled out the form on the Redfin website and were contacted very quickly by an agent (not Ryan) offering to show us the home. I wrote back multiple times asking for straightforward answers to simple questions: what does me agreeing to a showing signify legally, am I under any obligation, is there a contract or legal engagement I'm entering into if you show us the home, etc. Frankly, I didn't really trust this agent's answers when he said there was no legal commitment, but what do I know, as someone who had little knowledge of real estate? I explained the situation to a trusted friend and he said, 'Before you get involved with an agent, you might want to meet mine first.' He had only good things to say about Ryan, so I reached out. I explained what had transpired and where we were at, including the experience with the other agent. One of the first things Ryan said is if a realtor shows you a home, they alone reserve the right to represent you if you wish to purchase. Immediately, I knew the other guy was up to no good because he disclosed nothing of the sort. Ryan said he was willing to show us the home, but he really thought it would be of greater benefit to sit down with us, explain the whole home buying process, and answer any questions we had first, so we weren't going into a showing blind, unaware of what would take place next if we wanted to place an offer. This all took place on a Friday and we wanted to see the house on Sunday. Ryan made room in his schedule so we could have the initial meeting first and then made arrangements to show us the house, too. During our initial meeting, Ryan was all about educating us everything from the market, to first time home buying, to financing, the offer forms and process, everything. He made it clear he wanted us to be informed and comfortable with the process. He didn't act like a sales guy, didn't make it seem like a quick sale was in anyone's best interest, and he certainly didn't want to rush the process. He just wanted to support us in whatever way was best for us. And he even insisted on buying our coffees! Needless to say, we walked away with a really clear understanding in mind: this was the realtor we wanted to use. He was friendly, helpful, and definitely someone we could trust. Ryan did show us that home and a few others within quick succession. He was patient and helpful throughout. Then, unfortunately circumstances changed so we had to put our search on hold. More than a year later, when we were able to return to our search, we went back to Ryan. Since it had been some time, he wanted to catch us up on what had changed, what the market was bearing, and understand if our preferences or needs had changed. We had another helpful meeting with him and then hit the road searching. If I'm not mistaken, we saw 26 homes within 2 weeks. Obviously, he made himself available to show us whichever homes we wanted to see over a broad geographical area. He always followed up asking if we wanted him to keep tabs on it for us, letting us know if offers had been placed, and the like. We felt like he was working for us all the time as he continued to inform us and keep us updated. We eventually found a house we wanted to place an offer on and he provided invaluable advice throughout this process as we shaped our terms and counters in store ahead. Fortunately for us, we didn't end up getting that home (nor did the people who had their offer accepted, mind you). Shortly thereafter, we exhausted the list of homes that met our criteria. Ryan showed them all to us. Soon, another home matched and we submitted an offer. He gave us advice on how to approach the whole process and was very detailed on outlining what would look best to the buyer but still give us the protection we needed should something go awry. The selling agent seemed to be rather difficult to deal with and there were multiple offers on the table, but Ryan represented us perfectly to ensure we had the best chance possible. And, we're so thankful he did because we got the house! All in all, our experience was wonderful. Ryan worked so hard and so long for us and we ultimately got the house we wanted, largely due to Ryan. Throughout the entire process, it was clear that our interests not his own were always first. As a result, we have, and will continue to recommend Ryan to anyone needing a realtor.
A true pleasure working with Ryan Wendal. He kept us up-to-date on everything!! Very professional, very thorough. Made selling our house a breeze. Thank you Ryan!!
If you are buying or selling a home, Ryan Wendel is the realtor for you. Making a big life decision can be daunting, but having the right person in your corner can make all the difference. As a realtor with a problem-solving mindset and a calm composure, Ryan possesses a special ability to turn unsure and anxious feelings into true sense of comfort knowing he will hustle with a tenacious spirit on your behalf to get you where you're eager to go next. He is extremely thorough, honest, prompt, attentive to detail, and knowledgeable about the current housing market. Additionally, he takes a serious interest in housing trends and architecture in order to paint a realistic picture for his clients. You have questions, he finds answers. You reach out, his reply promptly pops up in your inbox. He is an outstanding family man with excellent morals and a kind heart. My husband and I would recommend Ryan again and again, and are grateful for all his work on our behalf.
Ryan did a great job during the entire transaction. He kept us apprised of what was going on every step of the way. We would highly recommend Ryan to anyone who is either buying or selling at home.
We were nervous and often times clueless being first time homebuyers, but Ryan was there every step of the way for us. His expertise was evident, and he helped us find the perfect house. Ryan has the gift of patience and we would recommend all our family and friends use him as their realtor.
Ryan was wonderful to work with. I worked with him on buying a condo and selling my house. All of the hundreds of papers that I had to sign were explained in language I could understand. Phone calls and emails were returned in a timely manner. A 5 star rating from beginning to end. Joan Tarachow
Excellent, professional realtor. Felt always comfortable knowing all was being done on my behalf. Will keep his card for any future need of his services at Shorewest. I'm sure this will not be my last house in my life. Debra
Ryan's follow through and information were great. I had few questions because Ryan kept me informed and explained each form ( and there were a lot of those) clearly.
Ryan provided an Excellent experience from beginning to end and was a pleasure to work with.
Ryan did a fantastic job of helping my husband and I find the right home for us. He was super supportive with ideas and a flexible schedule that made trying to find a house in a quick-selling market much 'easier'. He was always willing to go above and beyond which made the stress of the quick moving market less burdensome.
Ryan did an amazing job helping my through the process of buying my very first home. He was always willing to show me a listing and did anything he could to make sure we saw it as soon as possible. He explained each step of the process and made sure I was comfortable and understood each decision I was making. It was an absolutely amazing experience and if I had to do it all over again I would not hesitate to contact Ryan again.
Ryan did an exceptional job!!! Would highly recommend!
Working with Ryan was a great experience! From our first meeting, through the close of our home, Ryan helped us to understand the home buying process and made us feel comfortable. As a first time home owner, that is a big deal! Ryan is a subject matter expert, and offers a true consultative home-buying experience. He educated us on how to gauge the condition of a home during a viewing, and helped us evaluate our feelings about a house to determine whether or not we wanted to make an offer. Ryan is trustworthy and does a great job listening. He found us a great home in a neighborhood we wanted to be in! We have referred Ryan to multiple family members and friends, and all of them have shared with us how great it is to work with him.
Ryan was truly amazing and exceeded all of our expectations of what a realtor could be. We had a tight timeline to find a house and move in. He put our minds at ease and gave us confidence in our decision. He was extremely knowledgeable and was very hands on throughout the entire process. We will definitely recommend him to anyone we know that is buying a house!
Ryan gave us excellent service. He was available to answer questions. He explained he whole process of listing and selling our home. He staged open houses, advertised and marketed the home very well. We will certainly recommend him as a ompetent real estate broker.
My husband and I are very appreciative of all that Ryan did for us. He was available whenever we needed him. He answered all of our questions and helped us make important decisions. We were especially pleased with all the contractors he suggested. They did excellent work - and at very reasonable prices. We are very, very happy with the experience. Thank you Ryan.
Couldn't be happier. Would engage again without hesitating. Covered the bases. Closing couldn't have been smoother. Everything was very professional. Always went the extra mile to get things done. Much appreciated.
My experience with Ryan was excellent (5 stars). I was so frustrated with another agent from another company and not under contract with them after a month I told him I was done at around 8:45PM Friday night. I called and left Ryan a voicemail at 9 PM on a Friday night and he called back first thing Saturday morning. He was professional and very informative. He was back Sunday with the contract and took pictures and my home was up on the website on Monday. Any time I called him to ask questions he either answered the call or called me back within a reasonable time. It was quite an opposite experience from what I was dealing with. I would recommend Ryan to any of my friends who would be thinking of selling or buying a home.
Prompt communication and attention to Buyer's interests were evident throughout the transaction.
Ryan was a tremendous support throughout the house-hunting and relocation process. His thoughtful, caring approach made the transition smooth. Additionally he provided personal touches that my kids and family really appreciated.
AWESOME! Ryan was right on top of everything...all the time Quick to respond, very professional, polite, friendly and knowledgeable.
GREAT JOB, DIRK 5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ryan was patient with us, made sure we understood everything along the way, and I would recommend him to anyone who would ask.
Excellent!!!!!! Ryan was very thorough while making sure that we understood EXACTLY what was going on with the sale of our home as well as the purchase of our new home.
Excellent. Ryan worked very hard showing the place many times. He kept us informed all along the way, and was easy to work with.
John Terry Mulcahy did an excellent job in helping us prepare the house for sale and was always available when we were going through the closing process. We were very satisfied with his professional and honest work in the selling of the house.
Ryan was extremely easy to work with. He was thorough in his preparation and to the point about what he thought we needed to do to sell our house. It was clear that our satisfaction as sellers was his goal.
John Terry Mulcahy is an energetic, proactive realtor with a firm understanding of the Milwaukee real estate market, and with a broad repertoire of successful strategies and resources for selling properties. He is very personable and engaging-- perhaps even charismatic. I highly recommend him.
