A FAMILY AFFAIR
How a love of family blossomed into Milwaukee’s premier real estate group.
In 2013, top-earning Milwaukee Realtor® Maureen Stallé was at a crossroads. She could keep doing what she’d been doing, brilliantly, for the past 15 years: bringing people and homes together in some of Cream City’s most desirable neighborhoods. Or she could take a leap of faith, leave the company she’d been with for years, and start something new, fresh, and uniquely Stallé.
“I wanted to work with my family,” Stallé recalls today, “but more than that, I was looking for an opportunity to make a bigger impact. I grew up in an awesome household with 13 siblings. Our parents expected a lot from us, and we’re all pretty driven. I had a feeling that working together we could create something incredible.”
Stallé, her husband, Rick Stallé, her son, Will Stallé, and her sister, Martha Olla, set up shop at the dining room table, started making calls, and made the change to bring Keller Williams Realty to Milwaukee.
Fast-forward to 2019 and Keller Williams Realty boasts five offices throughout the Milwaukee area and is the fastest-growing real estate company in the city. What Stallé envisioned as a streamlined, “boutique” family business is now 300 agents strong and growing. In addition to growing and running the Keller Williams brokerage in Milwaukee, she and her sister have a successful sales team, The Stallé Realty Group. The team, with Keller Williams, specializes in high-end homes along Milwaukee’s magnificent North Shore, luxe Lake Country properties, and homes in every price range throughout the area.
The Stallé Realty Group is at the forefront of the industry, widely renowned for a deep and nuanced knowledge of this city and surrounding areas, expert negotiating skills, and for getting clients settled in their new homes quickly. There’s no substitute for feet-on-ground experience; over many years of successful transactions, Stallé agents have perfected the systems and strategies necessary to guide buyers and sellers carefully through their real estate journey. Sales in 2018 totaled $60 million.
From the very first meeting with a client to the signing of the last form and the handing over of keys, Stallé Realtors® are trained to listen closely and carefully to their clients’ wishes and concerns and to stay one step ahead of their needs. Attention to detail is unparalleled, as is a spirit of respect and caring.
A DREAM, REALIZED
Today, Stallé has eight family members working with her at the Keller Williams brokerage in Milwaukee.
“I knew it would be fun to work together,” says Stallé, “but the fact that so many of us are related has turned out to be a huge part of our success. Instead of being competitive, everybody’s on board for each other, working together. This might be a different style of business, but it works for us—and for our clients, too.”
“Buying and selling real estate can be enormously stressful. Many of our clients are moving to this area for the first time and need someone to guide them to the perfect home. My family and I are lifelong residents of Milwaukee. We know every neighborhood—the schools, the history, the character. Helping our clients fall in love with this gem of a city is an honor and a passion.”
