If you’re looking to buy or sell in the mid-Wisconsin area, I recommend working with the fine people at Castle Rock Realty. They know the area and will go out of their way to accommodate their clients. We had a last-minute “snafu” with our deal, but our agent, Gary Rose, along with others in the Castle Rock Realty staff, jumped in to allow the closing to happen on time. They’re not just focused on making sales, that want the experience to be the best for all clients. They take the time to get to know you.

I and my family have worked successfully with Beata Zimon-Francyk for over a decade. I am a real estate broker in Texas and have the highest regard for her skills, knowledge and work ethic. She works well on both sides of the transaction and provides a level of professionalism and energy that is to be respected. Not even the winters of Wisconsin slow her down! I enthusiastically recommend her to both buyers and sellers. She has a strong depth of understanding the complexities of the real estate business in small to large transactions and a personal warmth that helps keep all involved comfortable and satisfied. You will be lucky to work with Beata! 

- Jan Gillia

Castle Rock Realty did a wonderful job throughout the home buying process keeping everything moving as smoothly as possible with no delays of paperwork or inspections. The team worked together to quickly handle any issues that arose. My realtor Jess Kayhart was very responsive and easy to work with. She got answers when we needed them and wasn't afraid to be tough and advocate for us throughout the process. She was knowledgeable about the VA loan and ensured each home we viewed met the VA loan minimum requirements. Even during the pandemic she was very understanding, reliable, and worked quickly to ensure we finished everything in a timely manner. We would definitely work with her and Castle Rock Realty again!

- Brook De Anda

I was looking in the area of Castle Rock Lake for a vacant property lot, and agent that helped me was Lyndon. It took us about 2 months to find a property best suited for me, I didn't know that not all lots are suitable for a poll building. Lyndon explained to me so I don't make a mistake of buying something that can't be built on, he also took upon himself to make sure there was electric or gas at the property. I highly recommend using Lyndon and the agency.

- Mark Johnston

Joan did an outstanding job showing us homes  and finding us the home we wanted!

- Kurt Roscovius

Rob was VERY helpful and patient with us. It took us almost a year to find the right house and Rob was always there when we needed him along the way. He was easy to work with and contact. He returned our calls and texts quickly and we never had to wait. He helped us look at houses and bounce ideas  off of. He’s great to work with! 

 

- Suzanne Anderson

We are moving to Wisconsin to retire and were looking into Juneau county. We selected Castle Rock Realty and Gary Rose as our agent. Living out of town, Gary coordinated homes for us to see that would fit our criteria. This was much appreciated as well as helpful because of the distance we were traveling. He kept us informed every step of the way and was available 7 days a week to answer questions. As an added bonus, because he has grown up in the area, he was very informative of the area, and services from medical to home inspections. Gary takes the time with his clients, from a tour of the area, which we received before seeing the properties, to just sitting down with you and listening to your needs. We feel that you can’t do much better than Gary Rose and Castle Rock Realty. From the time of looking at the properties to closing, everything went smoothly, because buying a home can be a very stressful time. Thumbs up to Gary and Castle Rock Realty – they care and it shows.

 

- Linda Dadian

CASTLE ROCK IS THE COMPANY TO CALL
My experience with Castle Rock Realty has been exceptional. Bobbi and Beata have worked tirelessly to sell my cabin and adjoining property and to keep me informed every step of the way. Castle Rock is the company to call in this area for buying and selling your home. Five stars.

- Janet Wehr

Lyndon Cox was our realtor and he was awesome! We haven't purchased a home in 30 years and he helped us every step of the way. He was a builder before he was a realtor and that was very very helpful while looking at houses. He even was with us while our home inspection was being done, pointing some things out from his builder experience. I have been recommending Lyndon to everyone I know who is looking to purchase a home.

- Rick Brooks

BEATA ZIMON IS AN OUTSTANDING REAL ESTATE AGENT
Beata Zimon is an outstanding real estate agent. She is responsive and thorough and always cheerful. And she gets the job done!

- Nancy Nelson

The main theme I want everyone to walk away with that takes the time to read my review is that Gary Rose was an excellent person to work with. Right from day one when I viewed the first house on my list (That would turn out to be my first home that I am currently living in) Gary was great to work with. He was kind, funny, and overall a pleasant person to work with. From that first day that I viewed the home for the first time to the closing day he was there any time I needed him. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to go above and beyond to help me buy my first home. I really left this experience feeling like I made a new friend. I also want to add another story about Gary without giving away too much personal information. The person I bought the house from went through an unfortunate accident which caused him to be forced to sell. Gary took the time to go visit him in the hospital and take him dinner from the legion where he enjoyed eating before his accident. I believe this small story really shows Gary’s true character. As I said before if you want someone who will go above and beyond for you in any way possible without being asked, then ask to work with Gary. I can not stress enough how excellent my experience with Castle Rock Realty was thanks to Gary Rose. Thank you for being an amazing person and friend.

Anyone looking in the Castle Rock area would be blessed to have her or really anyone on the Castle Rock Realty team; everyone we interacted with were just great.

Prior to initiating the sale of my mother's property in Necedah, WI, I did some online research to enable the selection of a reputable realtor. I selected Beata Zimon-Franczyk of Castle Rock Reality, based on her numerous positive reviews, and was not disappointed.

She timely updated me throughout the process and was always courteous and professional. There was never any high pressure. Whether buying or selling, I highly recommend Beata!!

My husband and I first met Lyndon in January of this year. We were interested in looking for a place that would allow us to downsize. My parents had used Castle Rock Realty years ago to settle in Necedah. They really liked everyone there. I randomly picked from a list of Realtors at Castle Rock. I picked Lyndon first. We are so fortunate to have chosen him to help us with our needs. We instantly bonded and have become good friends. He is very honest and straight forward when it comes to guiding us in the right direction. He is always been available whenever I had a question with an email, phone call, or text. He has a super great sense of humor and he has an extraordinary sense of knowing what your needs are. We couldn’t be happier. I made an excellent choice. Thanks, Lyndon

I RECOMMEND WORKING WITH THE FINE PEOPLE AT CASTLE ROCK REALTY
If you’re looking to buy or sell in the mid-Wisconsin area, I recommend working with the fine people at Castle Rock Realty. They know the area and will go out of their way to accommodate their clients. We had a last-minute “snafu” with our deal, but our agent, Gary Rose, along with others in the Castle Rock Realty staff, jumped in to allow the closing to happen on time. They’re not just focused on making sales, that want the experience to be the best for all clients. They take the time to get to know you.

- Tom and Pat Brounacker

Lyndon has been so great in my journey to find my home. We have traveled practically all over central Wisconsin. He is informative and helpful and does not push you to find a home just to make the sale. Lyndon and I worked together for just about 6 months and even if I had questions late into the evening, he would respond. It was great to have a realtor so invested in my home search and one who genuinely cared about my outcome. I highly recommend Lyndon Cox from Castle Rock Realty!

 

- Ally

Rob took care of all the myriad of details, paperwork, and scheduling with great organization and efficiency.  And always with a smile on his face!

- Al Delap

Rob was very helpful, professional and prompt in helping us work through the task of finding the right lake house for us. He was not pushy and kept our needs a priority. His familiarity with the area was a great value too! Rob took the time to listen and understand what we were looking for and most  importantly did not waste our time. I would highly recommend Rob Hopper as your local agent. 

 

- Marc Linda Lindquist

SHE FOUGHT FOR US
Beata was a realtor that assisted me with buying our house in Wisconsin. Since we are from Illinois and we are inexperienced in that area, at the beginning we had many questions and Beata was answering with details all of them. She worked with our difficult schedule to show us the houses. And when we picked the house that we liked, she fought for us to get the price and every single thing that was in the contract. I would recommend her in a heartbeat ! We are already in love in our property ! Thank you Beata !

- Kk
Gary Rose was awesome. We were selling our parents older property that needed a family interested in fixing up a rural home. We are so grateful for his efforts in showing their home and finding just the right fit for the new owners. Highly recommend.

I first met Kim in 2017, right after losing my husband.  She is compassionate, understanding, and 100% a professional.  She not only has taken care of the business end of selling my home, she has done a lot of “hand holding” to help me get through this very difficult time in my life and I’m more than grateful to have her available and on my side!

 

- Bob and Carol Ledy
