JIM LOOs Broker Manager Crivitz Office

After graduation from UW Madison and a successful career in retail, moving to northern Wisconsin was always my number one plan. Now, living outside Crivitz, Wisconsin on the shores of the Peshtigo River, waking up to the sound of wild turkeys gobbling and the rushing sound of the river, I have realized my dream! Finding this dream site didn't happen overnight! Rather, it took years of research and driving to northern Wisconsin numerous times before I found this beautiful property! Now, with my years of retail background working with people and 18 years of professional real estate experience in both Wisconsin and Michigan, I have the knowledge to assist you find the perfect location like mine! Thank you and I look forward to working with you.


Eric HANSEN Broker Manager Green Bay Office

As a lifelong resident and property owner in Wisconsin, I thank the good Lord daily for the opportunities he has given me! A graduate of St. Norbert College with a B.S. in Management Relations, I had the pleasure to work 11 years in corporate america for R.J. Reynolds. During that time I was fortunate to help establish several successful small businesses in Green Bay, Kokomos Pub, The 50 Yard Line Sports Bar and Grill, Sowerbys Pub and Grill, later becoming Oxfords and Hansens Hair Studio, so my family knows what customer service means and how critical it is to a successful business!

Along the way, I have made my share of good decisions and some not so good decisions. That said, in today's real estate world, making the right decision is critical and I have the experience to help. As a licensed real estate appraiser in Wisconsin, including holding real estate licenses in Michigan and Wisconsin, the understanding and knowledge I have investing in real estate will surely benefit you as well.

Today, with my wife Julie, my four adult children Jenna, Tyler, Kayla, Morgan and one grandson Bryce, we are proud to be Wisconsin Landowners! There is nothing more enjoyable to me than fishing for native Brook Trout along the Miscauno Creek in Beecher or the excitement my chocolate labs Al and Rocky bring flushing nervous grouse on our Crivitz property or the sadness and celebration when my son harvested his first bow-whitetail from his grandparents farm in Niagara to braving the winter elements with my daughter on opening day of gun deer season on our Pembine property. To me, there is no greater joy than living in Wisconsin!

Customer Testimonials

My Wife and I contacted Eric Hansen of Whitewater Reality last year to inquire about listing my parent’s cottage on Chute Pond near Mountian WI. From our first meeting with Eric he made my parents and us very comfortable with his demeanor and experience both in real estate and knowledge of properties.

My parents decided to have Eric List their cottage and from the start Eric made suggestions on what needed to get done prior to beginning to show the property and what didn’t have to get done because it was a low priority. This really caused us to be more efficient and not waste time with tedious things that didn’t matter. To maximize their exposure, he listed their cottage on his website, MLS listing and various publications that were distributed throughout the area.

When the time came to show someone the property Eric always got there early enough to straighten up the inside and outside deck, yard, parking area ect. He really came across like he was trying to sell his own property and wanted to have everything just right. Even in a somewhat down market his marketing was effective and had people calling to see it regularly.

It’s great to have an experienced resource like Eric to work with, when my parents and siblings had questions that Eric couldn’t answer (which were far and few between) he always had a contact he could call and get the answer or would point us in the right direction ie: electrician, carpenter, etc.
The bottom line is that Eric did a great job in getting their cottage sold in a reasonable amount of time for a price that my parents were happy with and no hassles!

We would definitely recommend Eric and Whitewater Reality to friends, family members and strangers alike!
