“Selling a home you love is a stressful experience that we were not looking forward to.  Wade exceeded our expectations in every dimension and was a complete pleasure to work with.  He is smart, decisive and his advice and judgment were spot on.  He did an outstanding job of marketing our home in the first couple of weeks, including all the pre-listing preparations (staging, aerial and indoor photography, etc.), brochures and advertising, and multiple open houses.  This generated lots of interest resulting in offers within 3 weeks and a sale at 97% of the asking price.  Most importantly, Wade took total ownership and stayed on top of everything through closing.  His communications and accessibility were excellent—he was always at the other end of the phone or would get back to us in minutes.  Wade is amazingly hard-working and dedicated to making sure that all of his clients needs are taken care of.  In our case, this included regularly looking after our home on multiple occasions while we were away.  We would give Wade our highest recommendation for selling or buying a home.” 

-Peter and Kay Jamieson

“We are so glad we worked with Wade in the sale of our home. Wade is great to work with and extremely knowledgeable. He went above and beyond in making sure the sale of our home went smoothly.  Continually checking in, providing very fast feedback after showings, and providing timely advice was truly appreciated.”

-The Carlson’s 

“Absolutely recommend Wade.  He was there every step of the way for my husband and I.  There was some trouble from the person buying our home, he was on top of it and kept us in the loop on everything… I felt completely taken care of. As for us purchasing a new home, Wade was outstanding.  He asked right away what we were looking for, our priorities and even suggested properties that met those wants while still maintaining our budget.  Not once did I feel like we were being taken advantage of or rushed into a property.  Wade was fair in negotiations, truth be told I’m not sure we would have had it all work out in the time we did without Wades help.  Should we ever need to sell again, I know for a fact he’d be the first person we would call.

-The Bellows

In a word Wade is an exceptional realtor. He is knowledgeable, a skilled communicator, a friendly and very nice person to work with who has great ideas and knows what works in the market.  He took my concerns seriously and worked them out with me.  My luxury home was made market ready through Wade’s advice along with his excellent Stager and Photographer, everything was done professionally and it was enjoyable to go through the process with “the team” because they made everything so easy for me.  Wade helped me find my new home and he sold my home within 5 days of going on the market!”

-Sandra Weschcke

“My family and I were relocated to WA and we needed to sell our home quickly.  I know Wade both personally and professionally and knew he would be the best fit for our situation, he didn’t let us down.  We sold our home with the right buyers within 3 days from our listing date.  Wade was professional throughout the entire process and has a team behind him to make listing your home a great experience.  His staging expert prepared the home to show very well and he if we needed anything done to the home he had a contact that we could call for help that he trusted.  I would highly recommend his services and although he might not sell everyone home in 3 days, he will work tirelessly to make sure he sells it as quickly as possible.”

-The Roberts

“The whole experience was extremely professional. He offered helpful advice and made the whole process amazing. The staging and photography were unbelievable. Would totally use Wade again and would recommend him to anyone with a house to sell.

-The Lee’s

“Buying a home is for most of us the biggest financial investment you’ll ever make, so it’s worth making sure your decision is wise. Partnering with Wade because he really listens to your needs, knows the market, negotiates successfully & is masterful at the entire process is in my opinion critical in this process. If you are selling a home he will make sure it is “show ready” & priced right, so you capitalize on the initial selling opportunity & don’t lose potential buyers. It’s an exciting time, & can also be stressful due to all the details involved. With Wade you will know you are a priority & can relax knowing he has all the details covered. Don’t mess around with one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make ~ hire the best!

-Tambra Ray

It was a pleasure working with Wade.  He is definitely an advocate for his clients.  He will go above and beyond to make sure the whole process goes smoothly from start to finish.  I appreciated the fact that he ALWAYS returned my phone calls within five minutes.  We truly appreciated his professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a new home.”

-Woodbury Sellers

“Wade knows his business, from the very early “planning to sell” stages, right through closing and beyond!  He knows the luxury home market; the current trends and what it takes to sell a home.  Depending on the economy when you sell, that might prove to be the single, most important asset of any agent.  It was one of Wade’s many strong suits.  Wade is very good at laying out a plan, based on the clients needs or wishes, and then knows how to execute.  He has allied himself with wonderful staff to assist with marketing, staging of your home, photo shoots, showings: everything you will encounter along the way.  We had a wonderful experience working with Wade to sell our home (as well as finding a new home).”

-The Bergers

“Wade is a Realtor that I would refer to anyone.  He went above and beyond with our transaction.  Communication was excellent, very professional.  Does it right from the beginning of the transaction and throughout!!”

-The Walton’s

“Wade is the epitome of a person one would want to sell your precious home for you. He is cutting edge on ethics, reliability, encouragement, honesty, resourceful–all of which were reality in our adventure these past weeks. His knowledge of the industry is immense and I would like to tell the whole Twin Cities to look him up to represent whoever in selling a home. We have sold a home four times in our married life. This is by far the most professional.”

-Len and Diane Anderson

“Wade took ownership in selling our house. He made sure he used his 17 years of professional experience and was able to see everything thru to the very end. We appreciated his thought process, availability and integrity – these 3 traits go a long way in this business.”

-The Makely’s

“We would highly recommend Wade for any real estate needs. Wade SOLD our home in 10 days with the assistance of a wonderful interior designer named Jennifer. Looking around our neighborhood I see many For Sale signs, however, none have a sold sign. Wade is professional, yet personable. Trust is very important when it comes to selling or buying a home, never once did we have to question his integrity. Thank you again, Wade for doing an outstanding job.”

-The Pellersel’s

“After not selling my home on my own, we hired Wade and got more money then we originally were trying to get. AAA+
Wade was the most competent realator we interviewed. He knows Woodbury better than anyone else we talked to. Honesty is a hard thing to find in the realestate business and if that is important to you Wade is your person.”

-The Hamilton’s

“Wade has helped us in the last few years buy and sell a couple of homes now and each and every experience has been absolutely wonderful! Wade was so helpful and knowledgeable throughout both the selling and buying process and his commitment to us was evident! We always felt confident that Wade was giving us the best advice and leading us in the right direction! We would recommend Wade to anyone looking to buy or sell!!”

The Hellerud’s

Wade is by far the best Realtor I have ever worked with. I have had numerous agents in the past that have ended up with me being frustrated, disappointed, and back at the starting block. The experience with Wade was nothing but a pleasure. I have nothing but high praises for Wade.  Since we have gone through this process I have recommended Wade to many family, friends and colleagues who are in the process of looking for a home.  With as many Realtors as there are out there it is great to find one that is hardworking, dedicated, and most important a good person. I have nothing but great respect for Wade and would give him my highest recommendation.”

-Jim and Abby Bauer


After nearly three years on the market with various Realtors, Wade sold our home in 120 days! He provided us specific guidance on the market and how to sell in difficult economic times. Wade did an excellent job of marketing our home in many different media. The house staging provided by Jennifer made a big difference in the way potential buyers viewed our home.”

-Dave and Mary – Prescott, WI


We recently had the opportunity to engage Wade Hanson as our Broker to assist us in selling a unique property. We expected it to take several months to sell the house but Wade was able to find a buyer in just a few weeks. Wade not only expedited the sale of our house but he did so with great professionalism and integrity. All aspects of the sale were completed without any issues. In addition to the business part of the engagement, Wade also provided the personal touches to augment the entire process. It was these extra little things that we think set Wade aside from other brokers. For instance, at one time we needed some tables and chairs for a short period of time, and Wade took his own furniture from his house and delivered them to us. It was these extra things that Wade provided that made the sales process work for us. We would definitely use Wade again, and would highly recommend him the next time you need to sell your house.”

-The Ledman’s



“We first worked with Wade Hanson five years ago when we purchased our current lake home for over $1 million. We were very impressed with how he handled himself. Unlike other realtors we have worked with, he treats being a real estate agent as a profession and not just a job. When he says ‘let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you’–he sincerely means it. We were very pleased with how he could relate to us despite the fact that, at the time, he was only in his twenties. He thinks of the nice touches—when we closed on our house, he presented us with a framed aerial photo of the property as a gift. We always felt very comfortable working with him—and we’re very excited to be working with him again.”

-Dr. and Mrs. Steve (Connie) Prueter, retired orthodontist and lake home owner


“We just want to let you know what a pleasure it has been working with you on the listing of our house, and how excited we are for the upcoming selling season. In the past, we have experienced what the local area has to offer as far as your profession, and now with the recent move, we have also had the chance to work with other realtors outside of the Walker area. We have found that your professionalism, thoroughness, and knowledge far exceed anyone else in your field. Even beyond your abilities as a real estate agent, what we have truly come to appreciate are your ethics and values.These are rare characteristics to find in this day and age, and being able to trust you completely has been the best part of working with you. You are definately the best of the best, and you have spoiled us for all our future real estate transactions. For all of your work done and still to come, we thank you.”

-Jeff & Heidi Hayford


“Just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how happy I was with the services that you provided. From the start you worked to earn my business. I checked around at a few other agencies. They sent out a few pictures of listings, but that was it. The others never took me seriously. You stayed in touch regularly always asking more questions to find out exactly what I was looking for. Even as the process moved along and our needs changed, you continued to be diligent in your efforts to find us the property we wanted. I know that we actually helped you find the house we bought, but without you to hustle out to the property to let me know if it fit my needs, we would never have had a chance at it. As you know, I also work closely in this business by managing a mortgage brokerage.I have seen a lot of lousy realtors and only a few really good ones. I know that you are one of those few good ones. You have shown that you have several good traits that are necessary to succeed in this very competitive business. You always listened to my needs, always followed through with what you said you would, were courteous, prompt, you seemed to care (not just about the commission), always showed respect, were always knowledgeable about the market and the entire home buying process. I feel like I could go on and on. From start to finish and even past closing I have been completely satisfied. Thanks again for everything.”

-Jack Titus

Wade did a fantastic job selling our very unique upper-bracket home and helping us find our next place to call home. Wade put together an aggressive marketing plan to reach a targeted audience and as a result we had over 50 showings and our home sold for over asking price. Wade’s 17 years of real estate experience, professionalism, integritry and unique skillset are very hard to find in the real estate industry. He is highly skilled in sales and negotiations and I would definitley recommend him to friends and family looking for a professional Realtor.
