Featured Testimonial
by Bill


Selling a home can be very nerve racking but Wenzel Select Properties made it an easy journey. Each step went very quickly and smooth. That only happens when you have an experienced team.

We first met Lisa Wenzel, some years ago when we were looking for a home for my parents, she was selling a home nearby and we attended her open house. She was so friendly that day, we ended working with her right away!

Within two weeks she had found a great house for my parents. Now, 9 years later she sold the same house within 2 days!

We would not consider anyone else to help us with our real estate needs as we are very happy with Lisa’s services.
