Stacey was recommended to me by another agent I had previously used in Southern WI and I can honestly say this is the best recommendation I have ever received. Stacey was right on top of everything and continues to be as we navigate some additional things that still need to happen post sale due to the snow. She sticks with every detail and ensures that everything that should happen does. Communication is always clear and on time so you're never left wondering. She's professional and knowledgeable and just really great to work with. She went all over the place with me to look at odd properties, my dream was her dream. This has been an excellent experience and I would recommend McKinney Realty to absolutely anyone! (4/2023)
Logan was such a joy to work with. Always professional and personable, he understood the vision I had for what I wanted in my new home and he delivered! I think he was as excited for me as I was for myself and that level of enthusiasm in customer service can be hard to come by. And closing was no different. From the warm welcome at reception to the efficiency of the paperwork, I couldn’t have asked for better. Two thumbs up! (5/2023)
Stacey McKinney was my realtor for four separate real estate transactions this year. In every case, she went above and beyond my expectations! She is highly professional and very knowledgeable about the local market and local community. She did everything possible to sell my properties and helped me navigate every aspect of the sales and kept me informed every step of the way. After I moved out of the area, there was a blizzard that knocked out the electricity in the home that I had on the market for a few days - Stacey was ready to build a fire in the woodstove to keep the pipes from freezing (but luckily the power came on just in the nick of time!). Best of all, she's got a huge heart and always has her client's best interest in mind. I'd recommend Stacey to anybody looking to buy or sell real estate in the northwoods! (1/2023)
This letter will serve as our very high letter of recommendation for Real Estate Agent Scott McKinney He assisted us both with the purchase and eventual sale of our lake home. I have worked with many real estate brokers and agents on several real estate transactions over the years and can say with confidence that Scott is the best agent I have ever used. Scott has the qualities that make him an extremely successful and effective agent. I can’t say enough about his professionalism and knowledge within the industry. He has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the clients best interests in mind. Our real estate purchase was a small transaction relative to the size of properties and transactions . One of the qualities I respected the most was his no-nonsense style. As a busy business person I don’t have time to waste. He gets to the point quickly yet professionally, always respecting the clients time. He does a great job of listening to his client’s needs and does not waste time showing properties which do not meet the client’s objectives. He does research to assist with assessing a fair market value of the property for the offer and then negotiates effectively with the parties on behalf of the client. He is extremely responsive to questions, often responding immediately to our late night emails after midnight. He shows great attention to the details enabling the transaction to get done. I have the highest level of confidence in him our transact ion went very smoothly and we closed on time. We had a couple small issues on the proposed sale transaction and Scott had great follow through to resolve the concerns to everyone’s content. He followed up many times with us until the issue was resolved. As mentioned above, he represented us on the purchase and sale side of the transactions. I also would not hesitate to use him again on either side if we were listing or selling a property. He is very smart and transactions can sometime become very complex. I have the highest level of confidence in him and feel he would be able to properly assess any situation and figure out an effective solution. In future transactions, Respectively submitted, Jeff & Patty (11/2022)
On the biggest snow storm of the year with two new feet on the ground we called Stacey McKinney to see if we could look at a property in Drummond. She was up for it. We met the next day and Stacey broke trail through the snow to get to the front door. She went over and beyond and has since that day. She put us in touch with everyone necessary to have our home ready to go when we got there. Her efforts made a cross country move much easier. Kudos to you Stacey and all at McKinney Realty! Wisconsin already feels like home. (6/2022)
Cathy Midwood made my recent purchase a very pleasant experience. I felt I was in very capable and competent hands with Cathy as she has years of real estate expertise and is willing to help you in any way. Cathy stayed in touch with me through the entire process, answered all my questions, and never kept me in the dark about anything. Not just efficient and professional, but super friendly and easy going person to work with. Thank you Cathy Midwood! (11/2022)
Cathy Midwood helped us find property near Cable in 2021. During a fast-paced, difficult market she went above and beyond to ensure we succeeded. She was attentive to the details, proactively took care of all paperwork and communication needs on time, and gave us the confidence to complete a transaction from afar. She even helped us get settled once we got here, so kind. 100% recommend! (1/2022)
We have worked on a number of transactions over the years with Scott McKinney. Their service has always been impeccably professional in both selling and buying. (11/2021)
Cathy, Thank you for all you are doing to help us find our home on a lake. It certainly is challenging with inventory so low. You have gone about and beyond to help us and we really appreciate the time you have spent with us. The right one is just around the corner! (9/2021)
Scott and Stacy are the best. Very patient with our numerous questions and extremely professional in their handling of our real estate transaction. We highly recommend them! (7/2021)
Scott, thank you for all of your help & expertise with the selling of our home. You made the whole process very easy & stress-free. We appreciate your guidance in helping us make the decision on which buyer to choose. Your staff (Becky is amazing!) was professional & friendly. Our Thanks (7/2021)
I would recommend McKinney Realty for buying or selling. Stacey is incredible to work with and she goes the extra mile to get the job done. She was very helpful in lining us up with the right lender and covered all the little details with a high degree of professionalism. Thanks Stacey, you're the best... and I know this because my mom, Eulonda Roush, was a great realtor. (7/2021)
Scott has worked with us for years. He is professional and an expert in selling property in the north woods. I highly recommend him. (7/2021)
Cathy was a pleasure to work with. Her expertise and knowledge made our experience of buying a home so much less stressful. She kept us informed every step of the way. Cathy is a dedicated professional. (7/2021)
Scott and Stacey are super. They live in the community and know all of the people. They listed my land on a Monday morning, and I had a full value offer in 24 hours, on Tuesday morning. You can't do any better than that. (8/2021)
I would recommend McKinney Realty and Stacey McKinney when you are in the market to buy or sell. Not living local made selling challenging but Stacey was always available to do whatever needed to be done. I like that she knew so many people in the repair world. I feel she had my best interest when it came to dealing with people who wanted to buy at a very low price. She would explain that the property was priced competitively but was negotiable. I appreciated her support. If you want a positive and supportive realtor I would recommend Stacey McKinney. I also want to do a shout out to Becky, her office manager. She was very easy to work with and was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate world. If you want a positive experience selling property, McKinney Realty is the company to go with. (4/2021)
We appreciate Scott's patience during our long drawn out home sale. We always admired his professionalism and hard work. We would definitely recommend his services to any home buyer. (4/2021)
Scott is a fantastic agent. I can always rely on Scott to provide a fair and honest view of any property. A truly unique agent with exceptional service. (4/2021)
Larry & I want to send out a big thank you to Scott in helping us purchase our new dream. He was so thorough and attentive, we had a quick, smooth transaction. He was very knowledgeable about the home, and if he didn’t know something he had no difficulty reaching and asking the owner. We would definitely recommend McKinney Realty! (3/2021)
I can't say enough good things about Stacey and her expertise in selling my little house on the lake in the woods. She was straight forward on all the expenses and details from the beginning, and kept me apprised of each event. Selling a house is a complex business. I'm glad my house sold almost instantly - and I'm glad I had Stacey to manage it all - worth every penny!! (3/2021)
We could not have been more satisfied with Scott's professional service and personalized advice as we navigated through the cabin purchase process remotely during the early days of the COVID-19 crisis. He ensured that every aspect of the transaction ran smoothly - from financing to inspections to e-signing of documents, we were assisted at every turn. Great people to work with. Many thanks. (10/2020)
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Stacey at McKinney Realty. She priced the house right, and it sold for our asking price. We accepted the offer two weeks after listing. We are happy to give our highest recommendation for McKinney Realty. (8/2020)
Purchased a cabin in the woods and it was an absolute pleasure having Stacey handle the entire process. The people that I met at McKinney Realty were all very friendly, helpful, and professional. Any buying or selling of real estate that I may make in the future will involve McKinney. I was truly impressed. Thank you. (8/2020)
We want to say thank you very much sticking with us thru our land hunting process. It has been a long and sometimes frustrating journey but I feel we got the perfect lot for us. We are looking forward to being part of the Cable community. Thank you. (1/2021)
Cathy Midwood is a dedicated and caring agent. It took a while to sell our home but she never gave up and happily we closed last week. Thank you so much!!! I also know both Scott and Stacey personally and would recommend this agency to anyone! If you need a professional agent/agency - go with McKinney Realty. (7/2020)
In the last ten years, we have worked with Cathy Midwood for all (4) of our home buying and selling transactions. She's knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and professional. She keeps you updated in the process and is always professional. Highly recommend using her for all your buying and/or selling of your real estate properties. (7/2020)
This is a double testimony as we bought and sold with Stacey in one day! What a joy it was to work with someone so hard working, pleasant, professional, smart and fun! We sold our cabin in the woods and bought on the lake and we couldn’t be happier with the service, attention to detail, quick responses and above and beyond assistance. This is actually a triple testimony if we include the purchase of the original cabin in the woods 7 years ago! Stacey and Scott are the best and no one knows the area better. You would be in great hands if you listed or purchased with the McKinney’s! (7/2020)
Listed and closed in two weeks! WOW!!! My unfinished, off grid, cabin in the middle of the Chequamegon Forest was hardly on the beaten path so I thought it might take a year. It sold on the first showing plus there were two more eager buyers that were on the wait list. A real testament to the excellent reputation and network of buyers that McKinney Realty has. Thank you Becky, Stacey, and Scott for a wonderful experience. (7/2020)
I was blessed to have Stacey help me with purchasing my new home !! Stacey was wonderful and everything went so smoothly, her knowledge and guidance was a great help. It was so nice to deal with Stacey she has a extraordinary nice, caring personality. Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful experience Dana Shear. (7/2020)
Stacey was our agent, and if I could sum her up in one word it would be determined!! She was professional, kind and never gave up till we sold our house. I will pass on our experience we had with her to all my friends and family. We are so happy we went with McKinney Realty. (6/2020)
We were extremely pleased in having Stacey represent us as our buyer's agent in the purchase of our lake home. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was always available to address any questions we had. When it came to building inspection repairs, she was constantly updating us on the progress and providing us photos of the completed work. Even after our purchase, she continues to be a great resource in answering any questions we might have. We highly recommend McKinney Realty! (6/2020)
This was the 2nd time we worked with Scott and Stacy McKinney. We bought our house on the lake through them and almost 6 years later we decided to sell our house on the lake through Scott and Stacy. We wanted to get closer to our family. We are hoping in a few years we can make the decision to move back to Lake Namekagon and we will definitely use Scott and Stacy McKinney again. Although, buying is a lot easier then selling, we still could not have done it without the great team at McKinney Realty. (6/2020)
Stacey McKinney was awesome! She answered all our questions in a timely fashion as she worked to make this deal happen. I highly recommend McKinney Realty for any real estate deal. (6/2020)
From the time we listed the house till we sold, we found Scott to be very knowledgeable on real estate, including pricing and staging the house and all this in the middle of a pandemic. We would highly recommend Scott and McKinney Realty. (5/2020)
Selling my property in Hayward was a positive experience from beginning to the end with McKinney Realty. I was impressed with the professionalism of both Scott and Stacey and knew I could rely on their past realty experiences to advise me along the way. I enjoyed working with Stacey who was thorough, attentive, and upbeat. Thank you for everything. I would recommend McKinney Realty. (5/2020)
Cathy worked very hard and did an outstanding job helping us with the purchase of our dream cabin! She went over and above to help us find the perfect fit for our wants and needs. Cathy’s knowledge and professionalism were evident every step of this process. She helped us find a local bank, which was priceless since we live out of state. Cathy made this easy for us and is awesome at her job! Cathy was not only an excellent realtor for us, but we have added a new friend to our circle! We are so excited to begin the next chapter in our life with our beautiful cabin and we could not have done it without Cathy’s dedication to us! Thank you Cathy and McKinney Realty! (5/2020)
If it were not for Stacey we would not be living in our dream home. She did everything she could to make this happen. Always there when we needed her!! Thank you again! (5/2020)
Stacey was absolutely wonderful to work with. She helped with anything I needed and was timely in her responses. Anyone looking for a home should give her a call. She makes home buying as easy as possible. Thank you McKinney Realty for a great experience! (6/2020)
Stacey was knowledgeable, professional, and great to work with on the sale of the property. She has a deep and thorough knowledge of the area and the market, and her passion for her work shines through. Throughout the process she listened to all of our questions and concerns, at all times taking our individual needs and priorities into account. Absolutely, we recommend Stacey and McKinney Realty! (6/2020)
Stacey is simply wonderful. We fell in love with a cabin. Sound familiar? Simple right? Find it, fall in love, buy it and start making memories. Well, we found it and fell in love and when we went to buy it, we found out it had been built on national park property and the trespass had never been resolved. Stacey worked with the sellers, and the forest service, and the title company, and the bank, and the insurance company until everyone was happy and we were able to take possession of our dream cabin. I am quite certain another realtor would have walked away but Stacey was aware of how much we loved the place and was determined to help us get in there. Stacey, once again, thank you so very much. Let the memories begin :) Todd and Tammy (3/2020)
I really appreciated Scott taking the time and doing the research to get a good idea of comparable sales and listings allowing me to arrive at a listing price which was fair and reasonable. That was reflected in both the interest shown by numerous potential buyers and the fact that an offer was made within 30 days of listing. Becky was always helpful in the process and Scott stayed on top of all of the inspections and other contingencies to make sure that the road to the closing was smooth. Very pleased with the overall result and the process. (2/2020)
Scott and Stacey did a excellent job of staging our house which showed very well on line. Becky always kept us informed on updates. Scott worked really hard with a local banker for the out of state buyers and Choice title did a excellent job on the closing. Great job Mckinnney Realty. Thanks again.
Scott is awesome. Went above and beyond. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you Scott!!!
Thank you Stacey and Scott for helping us to make the amazing lakefront property we have been ogling for years our own. We both felt we were working with old friends rather than a standard realty office. Stacey was simply a pleasure to work with - her persistence and attention to detail made the process of acquiring the elusive forest service permit to the property happen (and much more quickly than for others working with other realtors). Your whole team are true professionals and we will, without hesitation, reach out to you and Scott when the time comes to buy or sell again.
Stacey took care of both the selling and purchase of our new home. Stacey sold our home extremely fast with multiple full price offers within about a week of listing! She took care of every detail and made sure we were taken care of and that we were happy. Then she worked very hard to find us our new home. There were many bumps in the road in our new purchase because of the aggressive market we are in. She always took the time to talk to us and made time for us at almost anytime to help us buy our new home. It was not an easy task by any means! Finding our new home took quite a while but it went smoothly once we found the right home. I highly recommend Stacey for any buying or selling transaction. She is very professional and yet very personable at the same time. She provided very personal service and makes you feel like you are her only client! She is very patient and explains everything clearly making sure you are happy! We have used Stacey and her team 3 times now and you will not be sorry if you work with her. Call her now!
I have owned a home in the Cable area for 40 years and known the McKinney family for as long. I recently decided to purchase a lake property. The listing was with McKinney Realty so I went in and talked to Scott. Closed on the property today. I first looked at the property less than 3 weeks ago and now own it. I formerly taught law at Illinois State University and have written a real estate law textbook. With that in mind I was really impressed with the professionalism and courtesy shown by Scott.
We were very pleased (and grateful) to Scott McKinney with the marketing and eventual selling of our property on Garden Lake. Always available to answer our many questions, and innovated in meeting the challenges our property presented. Very happy with the outcome!
Stacey introduced us to our dream cabin this Fall. After a couple conversations she was able to show us a home and lake in the region that are a perfect match for our family. She was a joy to tour homes with, truly friendly, patient and accommodating through every step of the process. It was a pleasure to work with Stacey and the McKinney Realty team. #CabinWhisperer
Stacey was awesome. She quickly learned exactly what we were looking for - probably before we did. She kept an careful eye on properties and immediately let us know when the right property came available for us. She stayed beside us over multiple years. She found us the perfect home the very day it become available. She knew us; she got us; she was there for us the whole time. She was very responsive (within minutes) on each request and gave up time on many weekends. And she left us a nice house warming present upon closing. She rocks it like no other. Thank you Stacey for taking great care of us. It was personal for her; as well as totally professional.
Stacey was awesome to work with! We had some last minute tasks come up to meet the closing requirements and Stacey went above and beyond, tracking down signatures, to make sure our closing went smooth! Thank you!
Scott did a great job listing our property, keeping us informed on every aspect of selling it. Ran into some unlikely obstacles, but Scott investigated, determined the issue and kept me up to date with a resolution to close the issue. All in all, very satisfied with the job he did.
Stacey McKinney sold us a Condo on Lake Owen and was great to work with. We live out of state and were conducting this transaction with Stacey. She kept us informed throughout the process and answered all of our questions, got back to us in a timely manner. Stacey was very professional and a pleasure to work with. Stacey assisted us with setting up the closing out of State and everything worked out fantastic. Stacey knows her business and is awesome at her job. Thank you so much for all of your assistance and for making our dream a realty.
Stacey, you were a joy to work with! Your professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge were priceless. Rest assured, we will recommend you to anyone interested in real estate in the area!
Our second transaction with Scott and Stacey. Once again it was seamless. They are true professionals and great people M and J
Scott is to be complimented. He gives professionalism a new top level. I believe our expectations in looking for a home and property were not only difficult, but perhaps nearly impossible to find. Scott not only came thorough, but he exceeded our expectations. I was one who did not always feel we needed an agent and could find things ourselves in today’s digital world. I was wrong. Scott’s knowledge and expertise was evident in all he did. He answered every question we could ask, and did so with great enthusiasm and was extremely prompt with his response. Many people take the time to complain. We wanted to take the time to express how impressed we are with both Scott and the entire McKinney Real Estate firm. We are grateful to Scott and Stacey for all their extremely hard work and for ultimately being so pleasant to deal with.
Scott went above and beyond. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable!
Stacey, Thank you for making our lot purchase so easy! Warmly, Patty
The McKinney's have assisted us with multiple real estate transactions over the years. We have always found them to be professionals and are friends as well.
It's been a crazy week for us this past week, and somehow we forgot to let you know how much we appreciated your efforts on the marketing, sale and closing on our Lake Owen cabin! We appreciated the professional yet personal touch you brought to the entire process, and the smoothness of the close was an extra nice touch at the end. (We certainly appreciated not having to drive to Ashland for the actual close; Rachael at Choice Title was great in helping us work through the few issues we had.) Overall, we are really glad that we had your help through this whole thing.
We hope that our paths will cross again sometime, and if we hear of someone who needs a realtor up your way you can count on our recommendation.
Bill and LeAnn
:) Sold full price
We were very pleased with the personal small town treatment we received. Scott was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to help us and answer any questions we had about the property. Thank you for helping us get our lake property!
Overall transaction went smooth and with us being out of state we had total confidence in Mckinney Realty LLC.
Dale and Jane Finch
Everything went smoothly.
I would recommend McKinney Realty to anyone looking to purchase real estate. Scott showed my wife and I a lot of places the last couple of years on Lake Namakagon. He made the buying experience go very smoothly. Scott answered all of our questions ASAP, and I asked a lot of questions. I couldn't of ask for a more friendly and helpful Realtor. When we closed at there office, Stacey was also very helpful and made the closing more relaxing for both my wife and me. Thanks for everything McKinney Realty, you made our dream of having a house on Lake Namakagon come true.
Completely Satisfied- Great Job!
Everything went smoothly.
Very pleased! :) Thanks so much!
We have been very happy with our association with McKinney Realty! Nice job, no complaints!
We sold and bought in less than 6 weeks.
Stacey was wonderful to work with. We would recommend her to anyone trying to sell or buy a home. Thank you!
Everybody we worked with was very professional and kind!
McKinney Realty exemplifies what true best-in-class service is all about. Your professionalism, knowledges and responsiveness truly separate you from the rest of the pack. Thank you again for a great experience.
Great experience - give our best to your family!
Our overall experience was outstanding. It is obvious that your company is very competent in this realty market. Our agent made selling our home from a long distance an easy process. Thank you!
Stacey really listened to us & was very courteous & personable. We'd recommend your agency readily.
Smooth and thorough. Scott was a true professional.
The service was perfect as always. Stacey did a great job!
We have had two recent experiences with your firm. I feel we have been dealt with in a professional and efficient manner. Excellent service!
Scott was our real estate agent 8 years ago when we were Buyers and this past fall (2012) when we were Sellers. He listens well, is very responsive and is very knowledgable. I couldn't have asked for anything better. He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him. :-)
You are a great agency to work with. It was a very fast, prompt listing and sale. Very nice to have done business with you.
Dear Stacey, we are very satisfied with your assistance in the purchase of our townhouse. The home inspector was a great referral. He's thorough and very congenial. We are reassured of the quality of the townhouse. Best regards.
Stacey was so very helpful - the experience was great - as is the outcome! We appreciate your cheerfulness as well as the expertise that went along with it. We are FANS!
Scott, we're so thankful for what you did for us! Everything went very smoothly!
Stacey was great! Very personable and efficient. Always available even when she was at horse events! Thanks.
We looked at a lot of places and had some real estate agents there poor. Stacey was like a breath of fresh air and we were pleased.
We were very pleased with the entire experience. We felt you really went the extra mile for us!
We never thought our land would sell so fast. Of course we are glad it did. I guess we put it on the market at just the right time. Thank you again. Jeff & Connie
Our first experience with McKinney Realty--We feel the transaction was handled in an honest, efficient and professional manner. We have NO complaints!
Awesome experience! Two years ago my wife and I bought a piece of property to build our dream on. It was a relatively small purchase, but we were treated like we were spending a million!
Our experience working with Scott has been wonderful. I am typically not easy to deal with and my expectations are normally very high. Scott exceeded all my expectations plus. I would not change a thing.
We are very satisfied with your overall service in this down market.
Excellent representation -- full closing was done remotely.
We really put you through the ringer with a million questions and all. My family thanks you for answering all of them and for all of the great service.
Excellent knowledge of area. Got us into some cottages before they hit the market!
Thanks for going above and beyond in helping us with the purchase of our lake home. We realize that this was not one of the larger sales that you work with yet you gave us the utmost in profession, top notch service.
Thanks for helping us make one of our life long dreams come true!
Thanks to the incredible efforts of McKinney Realty, without their assistance the deal could not have been done.
Scott, Thanks for the excellent job you did selling our property! You went the extra mile for a modest commission, and it is appreciated! You will get our future business and referrals. Most of all, thanks for making it easy for us!
Thank you so much for over 2 years of working with us to find our perfect cabin. You are all so helpful and willing to share your resources in our cabin hunt. We will definitely recommend your group to anyone we know looking for Wisconsin property.
First class people from top to bottom. Not only were they "professional" in every sense of the word they ALWAYS went two extra miles even after we purchased our "vacation" home from them. Now we have a very nice home but we also have new friends in Cable,Wi!! We could not imagine working with anyone else. They are "fixtures" of the business and social community of Cable. Rock solid in every way. My kind of people.
Thanks for helping make the purchase of our cabin a reality! Also, we wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your professionalism. It's nice to work with someone who returns calls promptly, is very knowledgeable, and was so patient with us through the entire process. We will definitely recommend you to all of our acquaintances.
Thank you so much for everything. From the time we walked in to your office, until the day you handed us the beautiful cribbage board and bottle of wine.
