Lance was referred to us by a close friend back in 2016. My wife and I had the pleasure of working closely with Lance for well over a year as we searched for, and ultimately found, our dream home and then sold our existing property in a tough Milwaukee sellers market. Lance is not your typical realtor in all the right ways. He is knowledgeable, patient, responsive and authentic - more interested in helping his clients find the right home instead of high pressure sales for an quick commission. Lance was superb in guiding us throughout the entire buying and selling processes. Given his experience as a contractor, Lance is able to give unique insights into properties that help his clients make informed decisions when making offers and selling their properties for top dollar.
We highly recommend Lance - 5 stars out of 5.

Lance helped us secure a house in a complicated cross-country move. Buying our house included many video chats, phone calls, texts, and emails to get everything done. He was always accessible for the smallest questions and was very knowledgeable about real estate in the area. We really appreciated having a realtor that treated us with priority since moving so far was very stressful! Thanks again!

My wife and I had just finished completing career goals for ourselves, the next step in our life plan was getting a house for us and our five kids. Yes, five kids, ranging from 11 down to 1. Knowing this would be the home the kids would think about when they remembered their childhoods, this was going to be a very important decision. We didn’t make it easy on Lance by any stretch of the imagination. We had list of need to haves and list of want to haves. Those along with the need to be in certain area for a specific school district. Lance had his hands full with our needs. House after house, Lance not only showed how he is an excellent realtor, but he was able to advise us on what each house would need in the future and what we would need to change to make each house work for our family. He understood we weren’t just asking for a house. But somewhere to call home. A home for Christmas, Thanksgiving, birthdays. A home to build our family memories. Lance delivered on each and every promise he made to us. Any one I know looking for a home, they get Lance’s number. When my wife and I are ready for our next home, I’ll only need to make one call. I’ll call Lance.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Lance. He made the process of selling our home and moving into a new home with my father-in-law a seamless and easy transition. He responded promptly to all our calls and emails and went above and beyond to reassure us when we had any questions or concerns. I appreciated how he spoke to my kids and included them in the process too.

We have bought and sold two houses in the last ten years with Lance, and we couldn’t be more pleased. His knowledge of the housing market, value for the money, and condition pitfalls helped us make the right choice both times. This last year, Lance helped us purchase our dream home, for which we are extremely grateful. We would highly recommend Lance to anyone who is seeking expertise in real estate.
Lance helped my husband and I search for the perfect house. He truly helped make the process less stressful, as well as fun! He was extremely professional and his extensive knowledge for building construction was incredibly helpful. For example, at one house we looked at the contractors did not grade the garage properly so the floor was slightly tilted and Lance noticed it right away and then proceeded to bring out some of his tools to shows us since we couldn’t tell. He never made us feel rushed, in fact he encouraged us to look at some houses we didn’t pick out because they included some aspects we hadn’t seen before and he told us it was important for us to see so we could narrow down what we liked and know for sure what we didn’t like. He always responded in a timely matter and was easy to get a hold of. He was reachable through every step of the process and always kept us informed. We were not the easiest people to work with since I was extremely picky, but Lance was extremely patient with us through the entire process because he truly wanted us to find what we wanted and make sure we were happy. We would never trust anyone else.

Greetings home buyers (and sellers)
When we decided to find that one forever home, we needed someone who would research the market and inform us quickly so as not to miss that one home. Fortunately, family members knew such a person. We contacted Lance Grimord and after discussing our preferences as to location, size of home and price, he went right to the computer and entered those parameters and we were soon given several homes that fit the criteria. What we learned was that houses were selling like Tamiflu during flu season. We got a call from Lance regarding a new listing and it was exactly what we wanted. He arranged a showing, wrote an offer, and our offer was acceped before anyone else saw the house. The critical element was his vast knowledge in the structural and mechanical aspects of a home. As a home building contractor, he saw the good and the bad in the houses. It was like having a home inspector and a real estate expert in one person. He negotiated a fair price, taking into account, all issues regarding any extra cost we might have to incur. He is intelligent, hard working, and goes the extra mile. Thanks Lance.
Being a first time home buyer, I was a little nervous about finding the right home. Luckily I had a friend who recommended Lance. He made the process much easier than I had anticipated. Any questions I had were answered quickly and efficiently. His contracting experience was very useful when looking at the structures of the homes. He was able to point out any issues that could be problematic for me. It was also helpful in that it allowed him to point out the good things he saw in homes. I have been very happy with my first home and couldn't have been more pleased with Lance as my real estate agent. I thank you for the time and effort you spent with me, making my first experience as easy as it was. I would not only recommend Lance, but plan on using him again when I am ready to move in the next couple years.
Lance is a true pleasure to work with! He is extremely responsive to any and all questions as well as gives great advise because of his wealth of knowledge regarding the real estate market and general contracting principles. He understands how homes should be built so he can see if there are potential problems and stop you from making a poor investment. Lance is also an outstanding negotiator. We cannot say enough good things about working with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone that will get you top dollar for your current residence and help you save money on your new home purchase!
We first met Lance in 2014. We were living in Illinois and looking at houses in Wisconsin to be closer to our son. One house was Lance's home, and he was also the listing agent. While the house wasn't right for us we immediately liked Lance and asked him to be our agent. We told him we were not in a hurry and the house had to be exactly what we were looking for--close to our son in the city yet somewhat rural, private, quiet, and a ranch home. We looked at many homes over the next three years and Lance was always helpful and enthusiastic. He has worked in home construction and gave us valuable insight into possible problems with homes--in one case suggesting we not further consider a home that seemed right but had construction issues that we could not see. We eventually found the perfect home in 2017. Exactly what we wanted.
We never felt Lance was just after a sale, but wanted to make sure we found the right home. He was always available, truthful, and kept in contact when we were beginning to think we'd never find a home. He did a great job for us.
