My name is Gene Van Buren. I'm a Realtor with Restaino & Associates in Madison, Wisconsin and proud to hold a consistent spot in the Top 1-4% of all Realtors selling Residential Real Estate in South Central Wisconsin for more than a decade.

My Seller Clients receive what I believe to be the best marketing available. My success, even through the most difficult markets of the last decade, is convincing evidence that my powerful, internet intensive marketing platform backed by a multi-award winning, local, highly respected brokerage firm with deep community roots and well developed infrastructure, produces a real estate marketing approach second to none. 

Pricing, another vital part of what I'm here to help my Sellers decipher, is as difficult as ever in this highly variable and transitioning market, even for those of us who have been doing this more than full time for over a decade.  And you don't want to underestimate the end dollar value of an experienced agent helping you with pricing your real estate.  Depending on the circumstances in your market, making decisions regarding price without complete information, can lead to very costly mistakes whether you end up pricing high or low.  I bring you the information that you need to help you make well-informed decisions.

My Clients know me as having extreme attention to detail, which is an important characteristic when helping you prepare and manage the unavoidably copious amounts paperwork involved in selling real estate.

Although I'm partial to the ease and speed of digital signatures, and was an early adopter of DocuSign in our area, whether you are fully digital, or still prefer paper, I have systems in place to accommodate everyone.

Tenacious follow up with prospective buyers and a private, web-based feedback journal documenting comments from Buyers and their Agents are also important pieces of my many services. 

My Buyers Clients can rest assured that they are optimizing the power of their dollar in this highly variable market through pointed and exhaustive automated searching that keeps us informed or your options, and smart, strategic negotiation. My expertise with real estate contracts assures my Buyers that they will be properly protected through the entire buying process.  Helping protect Buyers from overpaying while helping them avoid losing the right home can be a complex and artful service, and I'd be honored to help you navigate these often difficult decisions.

Whether a Buyer or a Seller, if you make the decision to work with a full-time, local professional with extensive experience and a proven track record in our market, or if you simply have questions or are in need of a fresh perspective, please don't hesitate to email or call me anytime. I am happy to help in any way I can. GVB
