Keep Your House Plants Alive!
Houseplants are often the bane of busy people. Unlike pets, they have no voice to plead for a drink of water or food. They cannot crawl out of their crowded pots or move to a sunny spot. Completely dependent on our care, they seemingly thrive for a week or two before suddenly dying.

My town house was located in the city of Sycamore, Illinois (30 miles northwest of Downers Grove, just before the earth becomes flat and you fall off!) My fiancee, a real estate attorney said I should list with Lisa Wenzel, she would be the best for selling my place. I said, “Lisa who!?!” I always went with the local Realtor from town because they know the area. I was informed (told that I was an out of touch old fart) that times have changed and internet real estate marketing had arrived. Therefore, I needed Lisa Wenzel and her team to sell my place. Lisa came out fully prepared with comps of townhouses that had been sold in my complex. I was on my HOA board so I already knew the area prices and she was spot on. Lisa explained her market strategy, both tech and traditional to sell my place. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the area and we quickly came to a listing price to sell my unit at a fair, competitive price. My place sold within one week of going on the market. Lisa and her team did one open house on a Saturday and blitzed the internet market with my listing. I got my price and introduced to the new way of selling/buying houses!
Thanks to Lisa and her team for a first rate experience! You’re the Best!!!
Congratulations to Robert & Tiffany on the purchase of their new home!
Congratulations to Rick & Angela on the sale of their property!Thank you for allowing WSP to assist you with your most valuable investment.
