Client Testimonials

Mark was wonderful to work with! When purchasing our first home, my boyfriend and I were pretty clueless and unaware of what to expect/look for starting this process. Mark assisted us in everything from showing us homes, giving us detailed information on all homes he found for us as well as the ones we found on our own, he helped us find people to assist us with the financial side of things as well which was huge! As first time home buyers we didn't even know what price range to look in, once we connected with Mark, he was able to quickly point us in the right direction of the right people to be talking to who could assist us with every part of the process. He is extremely responsive and always happy to answer questions! He made the process much less stressful, we would recommend him to anyone!

Alison is proactive and engaged in the process of selling your home. Even with something that can be as unpredictable as the housing market, Alison always remains solutions oriented and drives for actionable next steps no matter what it takes. I highly recommend working with Alison on the sale and/or purchase of your home!


- Nick N from Verona, Wisconsin

Worked with Husky Homes to purchase my first place. They have professional relators working for them. Overall, smooth experience with a lot of help to make sure important milestones were hit. They also found a great place for me!

- Matt W. from Verona

My wife and I have worked with realtors for over 25 years and used Husky Homes to buy our 5th house. We had been working with someone else when I spoke to Alison Crim. I asked her to wait a couple months and then check in. Like clockwork, she called me when I asked and we had the most wonderful conversation about her approach to home buying in the stressful, intense Madison market. She brought Solveig Schroerlucke along as a part of our team. Solveig was amazing, she did a video tour for us on the day the house we wanted hit the market. Solveig and Alison were super helpful structuring the offer and worked really well with the listing agent too (that can be really important in a competitive offer). Our offer beat out 6 others and Husky Homes was with us every step of the way: inspection, appraisal, a couple issues we needed to iron out, and closing. You need a team who knows the market AND listens to you. We couldn't be happier. Strongly recommended!

- Dan & Debbie F. from Madison, WI

I could not have been happier that I chose Alison to sell my home.

While all my thoughts were consumed with packing and planning for a move after 15 years in my house, the fact that I didn’t have to spend any time trying to figure out what my home would look like for the showing was HUGE. To realize that Alison was going to KNOW how each room would look best. She would know whether I should put the chair in the corner or move a lamp to another room. AND that I would have professional cleaning done too. Both of these aspects of signing with Alison were such a relief not to have that stress on my mind with all the other decisions I needed to make while moving. When it came to timing the showings and setting the price, I felt so comfortable discussing all the factors involved and what I felt would work best for me. Alison listens to what your needs are and takes all the components into consideration. And when the multiple offers needed to be evaluated, Alison was so helpful in breaking down the pros and cons of each. I was confident she had my best interest at heart and allowed me the time to carefully consider my best option. I have told all my friends that are even considering a move about Alison and all the benefits she offers for selling a house. I have full confidence they will be as happy with her work as I was.

- Donna S. - Madison, WI

We can’t recommend Mark, Alison, and the Husky Homes team enough! They were there to help us through all the difficult tasks of selling our home every step of the way, from establishing detailed timelines which worked for us, launching a pre-marketing campaign to pique interest, providing recommendations and contacts to complete necessary pre-listing tasks, and the final push to get the home ready for sale. Their expert staging and photographs really made the value of our home stand out and led to competing offers that exceeded our wildest dreams. We would have been lost without Mark’s experience and expertise to help us navigate a competitive bidding situation to maximize our sales price. He was always there to answer our questions and put us at ease. We were so thankful to have such caring partners we really trusted for one of the biggest transactions of our life. If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, we highly recommend you give Mark and the Husky Homes team a call. You won’t regret it!

- Ellie P. from Madison, WI

We had an excellent experience working with Solveig and the Husky Homes team. They provided the expertise and assistance we needed purchasing a home in Madison while living in New England. They worked so hard to ensure that all the details came together! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in the Madison area!

- Tiffany A. - Madison, WI

We contacted husky homes about being our listing agent and we were very impressed by Kerri and Alison’s fast response.

We met with Alison and we knew after that meeting, she and the husky homes team were perfect for us!

They did an amazing job of staging, marketing, and the execution of selling our home. We were very happy with the speed of the process and the results they gained for our family.

We are very happy and impressed with all that they did for us. We would use them again - 100% !!!

We also highly recommend husky homes for your real estate needs!

Thanks again!!! Much appreciated!

Alison and the Husky Homes team go way above and beyond making the home buying selling experience go smoothly. Highly recommend!!

- Luna & Andrew F. - Sun Prairie, WI

Working with Solveig and Husky Homes was a dream! Everyone on the team made the process fast, easy, and clear, supporting me every step of the way. Solveig was responsive, professional, helpful, and so easy to work with. Highest recommendations for Solveig and the Husky Homes team!!

- Megan M. from Madison, WI

Great experience buying a second home for my husband and I! Alison knew exactly what to do to compete to get our offer accepted, and the communication throughout the process was exceptional. The transaction was smooth and we always knew what was happening next. I’d recommend the Husky Homes team and Alison to anyone!

- Kathy H. from Packwaukee, WI

The Husky Homes team, and specifically, Solveig, made our first home buying process a breeze! We were kept up to date at every step along the way—communication and candor was exceptional. We were really naive to the process, but it was highly educational to us thanks to Solveig! We absolutely recommend Solveig and the Husky Homes team as a whole to everyone in need of realty services!

- Madeline Schur - Stoughton

I just randomly started shopping around for my first property and the whole Husky Homes team was really helpful. From Courtney to Kerri to Emily, they were all very patient and worked with me to find the property that was just right. I write this from my new condo, thankful I chose the team at Husky Homes to get me here. ????

- Jordon S. - Madison, WI

If you want a real estate agent that goes above and beyond expectations, use Solveig! She tirelessly and patiently looked for homes that fit our criteria until we found the one we wanted. Her marketing of our home and advice on sale price sold our home in one day with nine offers! She answers every email, text or phone call promptly. Solveig is a professional in every sense of the word.

- Mary N. - Cross Plains, WI

My husband and I highly recommend Mark for anyone looking to buy/sell a home. We moved to WI from out of state at the end of the summer expecting to find a place quickly, only to wait almost 8 months to find our dream home. Mark was encouraging, responsive, patient, helpful, (and as my cousin who referred him to me said, "he's also just a really good human".) He took us to see dozens of homes and was knowledgeable about various mechanicals and housing-related "stuff" we knew nothing about. Mark helped us find the house of our dreams and was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.

- Tessa R & Tim F from Verona

We recently purchased a home with Alison and the Husky Homes team. Each team member we worked with had excellent communication and answered all of our questions. They helped us write a competitive offer and guided us very smoothly through the entire process. They made a stressful time not stressful at all. We highly recommend working with this amazing team.

- Alex & Danielle M. - Cottage Grove, WI

We are immensely grateful to Emily for making our first home-buying experience so seamless and easy. Her guidance, expertise, and care led us to receiving an accepted offer just FIVE DAYS after our first house showing! We were expecting a long, agonizing process in this crazy seller’s market, but she knew exactly how to navigate through it. Emily has become a fast friend, leading us through every step of the process with a positive, vibrant spirit. Couldn’t recommend anyone more highly!

- Patrick N. & Rachel K. - Deerfield, WI

We're excited to recommend Jake. Jake was awesome to work with! We’re first-time homebuyers and the current market is extremely challenging—but Jake made it easy and clear for us. The entire process was smooth. We juggled searching for and buying our home with a bunch of work and family events: Jake was flexible, responsive, and accommodating of our needs. We can’t recommend him enough.

As first-time buyers, we weren’t immediately certain what type of home was best for us, and we asked Jake to show us many options. He was very patient and understanding of our broad search. He explained details, walked us through pros-and-cons, and always made us feel our needs and goals came first. Once we settled down on a particular type of home, we continued to explore, made an offer, and ultimately were successful, mostly due to Jake’s help.

- Fred S.

Alison and her team at Husky Homes were a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing a home! As first time home buyers, we were a little intimidated by the process. Alison quickly put us at ease by educating us on the process and area market. When we were ready to see some homes in person, Alison was readily available for showings and provided valuable insight on prospects. When we found "the house," Alison helped us craft an offer and successfully negotiated with the seller in a competitive environment so that we could call it our home. Alison is very knowledgeable, experienced and personable. Throughout our home-buying experience, she was encouraging, but never pushy. Friendly, but never afraid to give you her honest thoughts. Alison proved to be an invaluable resource to us and we're grateful she was on our team. We can't recommend her enough!

- Mike & Trisha D from Middleton, WI

Our house buying/selling journey was one week short of a year long.
A year ago, Clayton Rd needed a new kitchen floor and we didn’t know how much we should invest in it if we were going to sell it in the next few years.
We reached out to Alison Crim at Husky Homes early last January to get advice on what type of investment to make in our Clayton Road property to help sell it.  We were on lockdown at the time, and she gave us advice based on a video walk-through. She came back with some recommendations for what to invest in and prices we could potentially get based on our doing or not doing those renovations.
Nothing much happened for a couple of months until Solveig also of Husky Homes contacted us because she had a client who was potentially interested in a mid century modern fixer-upper. Alison remembered our house and thought it would be a good candidate.
Even though our house wasn’t the perfect match for that client, by then the market was really starting to heat up, and Alison and Solveig thought we could sell without renovating. But to list it, we needed to empty it, and to empty it, we needed to buy a new home, so we took the plunge, got pre-qualified for a mortgage on a new home and started our search.
Solveig Schroerlucke started to show us homes in early May. She was so patient with us as we struggled to find the perfect house. We looked at houses all over Dane County, new homes, old homes, fancy homes and plain homes. She helped us submit offers on a few that didn’t pan out, and ultimately helped us write the offer that got accepted on our new home.
Once we were in our new house, we started to get the old house ready to show. Everyone we worked with at this point was 100% top-notch Solveig recommended some excellent house painters who painted the inside of the house lightning quick. Alison found a stager that brought the perfect furniture and accessories to make our house look like a photo spread from a fancy magazine.
Because they had to work with me, Alison and Solveig had to answer a million questions, listen to more than a few rants and talk me off more than a few ledges. And because they had to deal with Willard Einhorn they had to….deal with Willard Einhorn.
51 weeks later, the journey is complete. We closed on Clayton Rd today…and we never did replace that kitchen floor.
Thank you Alison, Solveig and all the Huskey Homes team!!

Alison is setting the stage for a new era of realtors. There are no games with Alison - she is a strong, proactive communicator and acts with integrity and practicality from start to finish. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the local housing market, has some serious hustle and tenacity, and comes up with creative solutions to pretty much any issue that crops up. What sets her apart, though, is her direct, honest approach to the home buying/selling process. She'll work her tail off to get you a same-day showing for a hot property, but there's no pressure to make an offer if you walk through and decide you're not interested. Alison is truly a partner to her clients, and her straightforward but compassionate attitude leaves no doubt that she is diligently working with your best interests in mind. We would work with Alison again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her to anyone in the market for a new home.


- Kate R from Deerfield, Wisconsin

Jake helped me and a buddy find a great 2nd home in an awesome location near downtown Milwaukee.  We live out of state and Jake was not only prompt and efficient when setting up showings for us, but handled every aspect of the purchase and closing perfectly. His responsiveness, knowledge of the Milwaukee market, and attention to detail have been absolutely amazing throughout our buying process!

Alison is so sweet. One of the most hard-working, knowledgeable, and organized people I have had the privilege to work with. Even at at times when the market wasn't working in our favor, she kept us positive and focused. She works around the clock to make sure every detail is cared for and is always available for answering questions. Always had our best interest in mind. Truly could not have asked for more in a realtor!


- Krystell L from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

Mark is great to work with! He's very knowledgeable about the local market, and was great when looking for properties that fit with my needs. He's very communicative, and was invaluable when coordinating with sellers, agents and lenders. I couldn't have asked for better service, I'm very happy to have worked with Mark to purchase my first home.

- Jordon C. from Madison

We worked with Husky Homes to sell our previous home and buy our current residence. I can’t say enough positive things about Alison Crim and team, but let me try. They do a great job communicating next steps for buy/selling, setting expectations, explaining how showings/open houses will work, etc. They kept us appraised of details big and small. They also have an outstanding professional network of lenders, home inspectors, and contractors which made it easy to find trusted people to work with. Good luck on buying or selling, and know you’re in excellent hands with Husky Homes!

- Regina W. from Madison

Jake was our realtor and he did a fantastic job! We were first time homebuyers and he was great helping us through the process - recommended a great lender, listened to us and found multiple options in our budget and with features we wanted, and always advised us to make smart decisions (ie. don't forgo inspection) and do what felt right to us. The entire support team was great keeping us on track through emails as well. Closing was incredibly smooth, and we love our place. I actively recommend them to people who ask.

- Jordan & Chris R. from Madison

I cannot express how grateful I am that Husky Homes and Emily helped us cinch our home in today’s market! Emily was so patient as we navigated the first time homebuyer process, and educated us on anything and everything we brought up. She was incredibly flexible in scheduling showings, and communicated up front the entire way through. I was also impressed with the trustworthy network of folks they referred me to—from my mortgage lender to an inspector and beyond, every referral has been standout as well. When we found the home that fit all of our (many, very competitive) must-haves, Emily quickly helped us draft an offer that was accepted out of 25 others. Emily and her team knew exactly what techniques would be most intriguing to the sellers, and we were so happy to have their expertise to make our offer stand out! We can’t wait for our next opportunity to work with this team!

Alison was phenomenal in helping us to sell our house and buy a house back to back. She was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and professional. She communicated frequently and timely and did a great job keeping us up to date and advocating for us. We highly recommend Alison to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Truly the best realtor we have ever worked with. She really cares about her clients.


- Stefani M from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

Alison and her team was very professional. We met 1 year prior to selling and when we final went to move Alison helped us with the entire process. She did an excellent job by helping us prep for the showing. I would highly recommend Alison and her team to anyone who is considering selling their home. We are 100% satisfied with their services.

- Brad B

My condo buying experience was a breeze thanks to Alison! She was organized, responsive, and kind. As a first-time home buyer, I came into this process not knowing anything and appreciated her guidance and vast knowledge. I couldn’t imagine going through this process without her help! Her confidence and expertise made me comfortable in my choice. Without a doubt, I would use Alison again! 

- Kristi D from Madison, WI

Alison made the process of selling our condo extremely smooth and successful! She helped us
move rapidly to get our property ready so that we could hit the market at an ideal time - we were
able to both sell quickly and achieve a much higher price point than I thought was realistic. Alison
was supportive and attentive throughout the sale and overall made the experience painless. I
absolutely recommend working with her! 

- David G. from Fitchburg, WI

Husky Homes is hands down one of the best experiences I've had in working with people. Not just working in real estate, but just working with people in general. Emily worked none stop to ensure she found a home that worked. We gave our guidelines and she stretched to find what she could. After a few options that ultimately didn't work out, I got a little discourage. Emily didn't stop. She found an option that was better than I had thought was doable. This team doesn't stop until you are satisfied. You aren't always lucky enough to find people like that.

- - Alice & Dylan L. from Mount Horeb, WI

I want to say once again how much I appreciate all of you for the great work you did for us. Our situation is unique, and all of you went above and beyond to meet all of our needs and exceeded all of our expectations! A huge THANK YOU!!!!

- Susan B. - Madison

We worked with Jake and had a great experience! He was super fun to work with, very flexible with our schedules and helped us get a house in this crazy market!

- Anna C.

Emily was super helpful throughout the home buying process. She was very responsive, had good suggestions based on what we were looking for, and wasn't afraid to be candid when she didn't think a house was a good fit. Despite the crazy market we eventually settled on a house that needed a kitchen prior to closing and she helped us negotiate a deal that we are very happy with, and left us with a home purchase that we felt confident in our decision with. Alison has curated an awesome team with Husky Homes and we are looking forward to continuing to work with them as we list our former house!

- Zoe H. from Madison

We were lucky to get the chance to work with Emily and Husky Homes to find our first home. Emily was incredibly responsive, patient, and energetic throughout the entire process. There is no such thing as a dumb question to Emily [and trust me, I asked plenty.] We constantly brag to our friends about how wonderful of a real estate agent we had in Emily and are just so thankful we got to work with her. I have no doubt in my mind that if we ever sell our home and look for another in Madison, we will most definitely be going to Emily and Husky Homes. Husky Homes has some extremely talented folks onboard and they are the perfect group to work with to find your perfect home!

- Elizabeth G. from Madison, WI

It was truly a pleasure working with Husky Homes. Alison and her team are exceptional at what they do! They are very knowledgeable, professional and genuinely have your best interests at heart. Even in this quick competitive market their communication was superb. We are very appreciative we were in such good hands and would highly recommend Husky Homes! We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you for all your hard work and making our first time home buying experience so smooth.

- Trisha G. from Madison

We recently purchased a home in Madison using Husky Homes. Everyone on the team is exceptional at communicating and efficiency. We were first time home buyers that were living in a different state at the time of purchase. Both Alison and Solveig were very patient and informative during the whole process. We would definitely refer them to all of our family and friends!

- Larissa J.

Mark had helped us getting our dream house and was entirely patience with us taking our time till we found what we’ve really wanted. He’s flexible with his time although he has young children (thanks to the support of his awesome wife) and was willing to sit in our kitchen at 10pm to draft an offer with us. When we listed our house, Mark was amazing at making sure our house looked beautiful and spotless! He helped us tremendously with prepping our property and getting us a professional stager, the photos that was done by professional photographers turned out perfect with the right amount of lighting. Mark was one realtor willing to go extra miles with getting us the best and reasonable prices for both properties. I highly recommended him.

- Arifin F from Madison

We we’re treated as though we where buying a mansion but only buying a common Condominium. We highly recommend this realtor. Oh did I mention the amazing gift they sent us afterwards.Incredible

- Dave & Lori D from Deerfield, WI

Alison and her team did a great job helping us sell our home in one weekend, and get us into our
dream home! The staging and house cleaning that was included in their services was fabulous and helped to minimize the stress of getting our house ready to sell. As buying and selling homes rarelygoes 100% smoothly, it was great to know Alison and her team had our backs, advocated for us,and were super communicative about each step. Would highly recommend their services. 

- Jesse C from Madison, WI

Alison and her team are amazing!! I first met Alison when I decided to go to an open house just too see what type of house we may want in the future. She was so knowledgeable with a relaxed and welcoming approach that 2 years later when we were ready to buy and sell, I contacted her right away! She and her team also guided us through staging and showing our home during safer-at-home orders and we got a strong offer very quickly! Before working with Alison the whole process seemed overwhelming, but she made everything doable and less stressful! We’ve already recommended her to our friends and they are having a great experience too! 10/10 would recommend!

- Rebekah & Kyle H. from McFarland, WI

I am not sure what more you could ask for. They helped get amazing photos of our house for the listing, provided additional staging, and provided a deep clean before it hit the market so it was 100% show ready. They helped us sell our house fast and with an offer over asking price. One of the best experiences I have had selling a home up to this point and would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

- Nick & Sam B from Deforest, WI

We had an amazing experience with Jake when looking for our new home. He was super flexible and always willing to show us houses last minute. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!!

- Erin E.

I'm just starting the process of potentially buying a home and Jake Johnson has been such a valuable resource already.  He has taken the time to answer my questions, put me in touch with a mortgage officer and even sent me educational materials to help with my research.  He is patient and helpful and dedicated to making the process less scary for me.  When I'm ready to buy a home, Jake will definitely be my realtor of choice.

- Kelly B.

I was very impressed with Alison from the start. I have interviewed many realtors in the past and Alison and Solveig went beyond my expectations to help me sell my house as well as finding me a great condo. I definitely recommend the team at Husky Homes. You all have been great. 

- Kathleen from Sun Prairie, WI

We used Husky Homes to find and buy our new home and sell our old one. Solveig was so patient with us as we went all over Dane County looking at homes new and old, big and small, ready to move into and needing help. All the time she listened carefully to us and helped us refine our criteria until we found the house that was perfect for us, and then she helped us write an offer that was accepted. Solveig and Alison helped us get our old house ready to sell. Not just with advice (which was very helpful) but also with getting contractors (sometimes the same day) that helped us get our home ready to list. Alison knew just how to stage it, and the photographer she worked with made it look wonderful. Alison helped us manage competing offers and counter offers until we accepted an over-asking-price offer with few contingencies. Buying and/or selling a house is extremely stressful. The whole Husky Homes team helped us navigate a crazy market and end up exactly where we wanted to be. I would definitely recommend them to anyone buying or selling.

- Holly A from Fitchburg

Husky Homes has been such a pleasure to work with! The entire team makes an effort to get to know you and assist with any questions you have. They are very in tune with the housing market and have unique ideas and solutions to get their clients into homes even when the market seems impossible. I have loved working with Erin Neises! She is professional and works very hard for her clients. She truly listens to what you are looking for and has a great eye for interior design within homes. Thank you Husky Homes! I can't wait to move into my first official home!

- Kristen K. from Middleton, WI

My partner and I were referred to Alison at Husky Homes back in February 2021 during a time when we were indecisive about staying in Madison. After 7 months of back and forth, a crazy market, a month in San Diego, we came back to Madison in August ready to start seriously looking for a home in the Madison area as we just needed more space being two remote workers. While Alison was on maternity leave, Solveig was a rock for us throughout our search. She helped with several showings and considerations between new builds or not. She was flexible given our work schedules and was quick to answer questions over text or email. We ended up finding a custom build Labor Day Weekend with a close date in early November. As a first-time homebuyer, and my first time working with a builder directly, Solveig helped every step of the way - attending meetings, walk-thrus, and helping with decisions. She was also there for us at closing for the house and ensured we understood all the details of the purchase and loan. Upon closing on the house and quickly moving in before Thanksgiving, we were ready to sell my partner’s condo. Miraculously, over the course of just 9 days, Alison, Solveig, and their team got the condo deep cleaned, freshly painted, fully staged, photographed, listed, and sold all before the end of November. Surreal. We’d recommend Husky Homes in a heartbeat. Awesome team to work with throughout both the purchase and sale of our homes.

Alison and the team at Husky Homes were so fantastic to work with as I sold my home! They were efficient, super organized, and answered all of my questions. Really made me feel at ease during a stressful time. I cannot recommend Alison and her team enough!

House sold on the first day! Alison was excellent to work with. She helped guide the process from start to finish, was very knowledgeable, did an excellent job helping us prep and stage the house and got us a great price. Our house sold on the first day of showings. Verified by RateMyAgent


- Sean O from Verona, Wisconsin

The Husky Homes team helped my wife and I purchase a new home in the Sun Prairie area. I absolutely LOVED every step of the process working with them. They are very tech-savvy and represent a real estate team that is dedicated to helping you purchase or sell a home in the 21st century. They were there answering questions every step of the way and always went above and beyond for us. Our closing gift was beyond thoughtful and such a perfect art piece for our new walls. Thank you Husky Homes for providing such an excellent purchasing experience for the wife and I!

Could not have asked for a better agent. Everything you could ask for, Alison has. 100% recommend! She answered every question with knowledge and was very flexible with my specific buying situation. She was proactive in communication as well.


- Michael T from Madison, Wisconsin

Me and my wife just purchased our first home with Veridian Homes with the help of our realtor, Erin Neises, and her team at Husky Homes. Erin was very professional, thoughtful, and devoted to helping us get the right home. She was also patient and helped us stay positive during the process. Through Husky Homes, we found Veridian Homes, which was the best option for us given how crazy the market has been. We are super happy with our brand new built home, and can't wait to start raising our family in a new home and new neighborhood, with a lot of young families. We would highly recommend Erin and her team to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. These guys know what they are doing, and they also have good connections with builders and good lenders in the area. We are grateful for our experience with Erin, and we thank the whole team at Husky Homes for their professionalism and help.

- Frandy & Djouly C. from Waunakee

Jake Johnson was our real estate agent and was nothing but a consummate professional.  Very friendly, knowledgeable and knows the market!  Happy to recommend him.

- Pete S.

Mark Hewitt is an amazing realtor! He was truly our advocate and guide in a very challenging situation - finding a very particular type of home to accommodate our family of four plus my in-law's all while during a pandemic! His knowledge and expertise made this an incredibly smooth process. We found our dream home in the location we wanted. Even more amazing, through Mark's resources (using a wonderful staging person, professional photography and video tour, and drone shots), our old home sold within 24 hours of being listed! All of this while social distancing too. Mark was available at the drop of a hat throughout this whole process, and he kept track of so many details and tasks from offer to closing - I don't know how we could have done this without him!

- Melissa M. from Monett

I worked closely with Mark to sell my unique, custom-built home. It was my first and only experience in the housing market and I definitely would not have been able to navigate it without him. As someone without any industry knowledge as a seller or homeowner, Mark was very patient and understanding with me. He took the time to really explain every detail of the process and provided valuable insight to help me make informed decisions. He remained very professional during our time together, but was still friendly and personable. I truly feel that he kept my best interests at heart and his top priority was to provide exceptional service to his client. He went out of his way many times to make sure buyers saw the best version of my house, whether it was showing up early with a lawn edger to trim the driveway and sidewalk edges of my grass, sweeping the floor to remove footprints, helping install door stoppers as a last minute request, and even meeting with contractors to make repairs when I was out of town. When buyers and agents provided him with feedback about my house, he respectfully passed the information on to me so that I could make some improvements when needed to increase the value of the home. I cannot recommend Mark enough. He's a phenomenal agent who has so much compassion and understanding for his clients. I feel so fortunate to have worked with him and will absolutely utilize him again when I get the chance to. I trust him completely to be honest and forthcoming with me and know that I will get the best outcome through him. You cannot go wrong by working Mark.

We loved working with Alison. As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and needed quite a bit of guidance. Alison was there every step of the way making sure that we knew everything we needed to know. She was very personable and easy to communicate with. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else there to help us buy our first home!


- Heidi T from Edgerton, Wisconsin

We were very happy to have had Husky Homes to help us find our Madison area home. Alison has a team to cover all the bases in finding, contracting for and closing on the right home, from start to finish. We feel especially fortunate to have worked with Emily who was tireless and patient in identifying the right place for us. In very short order she understood what liked and did not like and, in the end, we actually purchased a home we were unable to visit in person before contracting or closing, purely trusting Emily's instinct for what what fit for us... and she did not let us down!

Husky Homes did an amazing job helping us sell our home. Alison and her team worked so hard during our first weekend of showings and open houses. It was so busy and they worked hard all weekend. We had offers from buyers who had not even seen the home yet and had multiple competing offers buy the end of the weekend. They did a great job marketing the property as well and were always available for any little question we had. The entire transaction was seamless for us and we appreciate all they did.

If you need a realtor you'll find none better to guide you end to end of the home viewing and closing process! Timely, polite, accommodating and professional Solveig is absolutely fantastic at what she does and works extremely hard to help her clients find their best way home!

Mark Hewitt -- quite simply -- is the BEST! If you read on I'll give some concrete examples why, but if you're just skimming please make sure your two-second takeaway is this: GO WITH MARK!! My family (me, wife, 2 toddlers) were relocating from Los Angeles to Madison and needed a pro to help us navigate the Madison real estate market. We were doing everything remote and putting ourselves in a very vulnerable position by looking at properties virtually and buying sight-unseen. We weren't familiar with Madison. AND this was our first home buying experience. We were wildly out of our element. But never fear -- MARK HEWITT had our backs. There are a number of adjectives that could be used but I'll go with the following: PATIENT. CARING. THOROUGH. DEPENDABLE. UNDERSTANDING. RESPONSIVE. PROFESSIONAL. Mark guided us at every turn, giving advice, recommendations... or just lending a friendly ear. We talked on the phone all hours of the day and night. On weekends. He ran all over town showing us video of properties from his phone. From a customer service perspective, I have NEVER felt so taken care of. There were a hundred opportunities for this whole experience to take a negative turn or fall apart, but Mark was steadfast and positive. And in the end, he not only guided us through the complex, convoluted process, but helped us strategically in a competitive bidding situation to come out with the winning offer. I love this man. If I had the space I would write 10 pages of examples of how critical he was to our experience. Our family had NO idea the ins and outs of buying a house, especially in a hot market like Madison. There are so many tiny things that go into this process.... the right person is ESSENTIAL. And the knowledge, experience and interpersonal attributes Mark possesses allow him to communicate clearly and educate in a way that makes sense and is truly helpful. So, one more time -- GO WITH MARK HEWITT! I promise you it is the right decision. Take it from a rookie that had no ties to Mark or Madison, that put his blind faith in one man and emerged with the best possible outcome. I will continue to tell EVERYONE I come into contact with that Mark Hewitt is simply the greatest Realtor -- and human. And if you're still reading... and you take this advice... I can't wait to see your post saying the same things! Thank you sincerely, Mark!

Husky Homes brought a unique personal touch to the homebuying experience. Solveig was our agent and she was excellent. She was very attentive to our concerns, took the time to explain steps & nuances, always was available for us when we needed her, walked us through every step of the different processes, and noticed things that we didn't during the walkthroughs. Solveig made the hectic process of buying a home fairly stress free for us. When our lender had too long a loan processing time, she connected us to one of Husky Home's preferred lenders. The process couldn't have gone more smoothly.

First time buyers! Emily bared with us through this crazy market through the many lows. We love how honest and down to earth she is, we felt we could tell her our true feelings and knew we always had her support no matter what. Thanks Emily for seeing us through to the end!

Erin Neises is an incredible real estate agent. As I first time home buyer, she was very helpful and so kindly walked me through everything. She is one of the most hard working and diligent people I’ve met. She works very hard with great compassion for her clients. I have found a home that I love and it was a honor to have bought it with Erin.

Buying our first home was such a unique experience, I can't imagine trying to do it with anyone else! Husky Homes was the perfect choice!

Husky Homes was integral to our home buying and selling process. Our home search process lasted well over a year due to the low inventory and competitive market. Solveig was very patient, always eager to help, and answered our many questions. She helped us navigate many difficult negotiations, and we were thrilled to finally receive an accepted offer on a property we love. Working with a buyer’s agent is a no-brainer, and Solveig with Husky Homes is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and caring. We are so thankful for her help. We used a flat fee service to sell our first home, so we were admittedly a bit skeptical about the value of a listing agent, especially in a seller’s market. Alison and her team deep cleaned and professionally staged our home, and we accepted a strong offer within 5 days of listing. Alison’s knowledge and expertise were essential in pricing and staging our home to receive top dollar. Frankly, we would have listed it lower based on our understanding of the market. There’s no doubt her support as our listing agent was financially worthwhile. We couldn’t be more appreciative of the team at Husky Homes and their tireless work on our behalf. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Thinking about selling our home while finishing up our new build was pretty stressful, but Alison and her staff did such an amazing job taking care of everything for us to make the process smooth and easy. She did a great job staging our home so it looked impeccable for showings and marketing our listing which helped us get many offers over our list price. I have no doubt that her expertise navigating the offers and communicating with the buyers agents directly resulted in us getting and accepting an amazing offer. We could not have done it without her and her team!

We really enjoyed working with Solveig! We were a little unconventional and were searching for houses about 5 months before actually wanting to move and she walked us through the process seamlessly. She was very knowledgeable about the little details that were important and gave us great advice and input into our negotiations! We have been in our new home now for 8 months and could not be happier!

If you are a first time homebuyer in the Madison area, you would be a fool not to reach out to Alison and her team for support and assistance. They are the most thorough and organized folks and are expert navigators in this crazy market. Always on top of new listings, answering questions at odd hours of the day, and keeping us organized; we couldn't have asked for more! We can't thank them enough for helping us find our first home and I know we'll be sticking with Alison and her team as long as possible.
