Northshore Homes

No one knows Sheboygan County like its realtors. Beyond homes, they know the education system, the economy, the best spots to go, you name it. So it means even more when they’re so enthusiastic about it.

“Working here has been a dream, like walking on a cloud. Because it’s locally owned and managed, we can embrace the people because it’s all about relationships. What better way than to build into the people who are working to help not only in COVID but also on a daily basis?”

That’s the voice of Brenda Buehler from Northshore Homes. Northshore Homes, a locally-owned real estate company located in downtown Sheboygan, has come up with a plan to build into heroes in the county by offering closing rebates, whether they’re selling their homes or buying a new one.

How was this possible? “We have a business plan that allows us to be very, very flexible with our income,” Brenda said. “All agents were willing to give of their own ‘take home’ from a transaction to give to the buyer or seller.”

This generosity comes from the hearts or realtors with personal investment in the community, and even family working the front lines. “I have three children in the medical field, two of them are primary care providers. [COVID] touched me personally,” Brenda said. She chuckled and continued by sharing that the value of generosity was where the company began in the first place: “When I first brought the company here, my goal was, how can I bless someone today? My accountant used to tell me, Brenda, you have to stop blessing people so much!”

How was this possible? “We have a business plan that allows us to be very, very flexible with our income,” Brenda said. “All agents were willing to give of their own ‘take home’ from a transaction to give to the buyer or seller.”

So how can a hero take advantage of this offer? “First step would be to contact one of the agents or the office, stating that they either have a home to sell or that they’re looking for a home to buy. Let us know if you fall into one of the particular categories of teacher, primary care provider, emergency medical services, police officer, firefighter, or something related. No formal application necessary.” A friendly Northshore agent will take it from there. Click here for full details.

I asked Brenda for her take on COVID-19, its effects on the community, and what positive outcomes there were. “We were used to working remotely so it didn’t affect how we operate too much. But I think a positive outcome is that people were coming up with creative things to do in their own homes and together as a family.”

She wrapped up our interview with this fantastic idea for an activity to do at home: “I sent painter tape one day to my grandkids to make hopscotch in the hallway and stained glass windows in the house – once you have the tape on the windows, you can use water paint and paint in between because it easily washes off. They loved it!”

“Sheboygan County is someplace better because we help take care of each other,” Brenda concluded. And we absolutely agree.
