NEED A NEW PLACE TO CALL HOME? We have the local knowledge and years of experience
to help you find the perfect place.

Start your home search here.


Buying a home or condo in Madison, Middleton or the surrounding area? There’s more to think about than the neighborhood and the number of bedrooms you need. Is it a fair price? Is the seller motivated? Any upgrades you’ll have to make? We will use our experience to help you do a deeper dive into what you see online. We’ll work tirelessly together with you to find a home that not only suits your lifestyle, but also one that is a good value for you. And we’ll have fun doing it!

1. Connect
When you are ready to talk about buying a home—whether you want one now or are setting the stage for a move in a year—we will sit down with you to learn what “home” means to you. We’ll ask questions about your lifestyle, your must-haves, and any financial parameters.
We’ll explain the process of buying a home in the Madison area and can help guide you to the lenders who can get you started on the loan pre-approval process if necessary.
2. Explore
If you haven't already done so, we’ll set you up on a personalized online search based on what we heard you say so you are notified the moment a home meeting your criteria is listed.
And if you’re new to the Madison area, we’ll tour appropriate neighborhoods and visit houses representative of the area so you can get a feel for what’s unique about each place.
3. Home Visits
When you’re ready to start looking at houses, together we’ll visit the ones you’ve found online as well as any off-market opportunities we have discovered through our local networks. When you’ve narrowed it down to your favorites, we’ll share what we’ve learned about the house, including what the seller’s motivation is and how it compares to other homes.
Keep in mind, we aren’t going through this process simply to sell you a house. Our goal is to help you find a home that suits you. We want you to love it.
4. Offer + Negotiation
We take pride in our collaborative and often creative contracts.
It’s important to us that we not only protect our clients and craft beneficial contracts for them but that we also understand the seller so we can identify an acceptable solution and be in the strongest possible negotiating position.
5. The path to the closing table
This is where our transparent communication and management of the details come into play. Our priority is to keep you in the strongest negotiating position all the way to the closing. We’ll manage the timelines, provide any necessary referrals to contractors and will help troubleshoot and problem solve if any issues arise during the appraisal or inspection.
Our experience means we know how to monetize and quantify anything that comes up in an inspection so that we know what our options are at the negotiating table.
6. Your new home
We don’t abandon you after we shake hands at the closing table. In fact, we’d be honored if you’d consider us a lifelong resource. Because we’ve been doing this so long, we know all things home.
If you ever need any recommendations—be it a local restaurant or a plumber—we’ve got you covered.



C.A. & S.A.

Susi Haviland should be commended for her thorough, timely, professional work.  She worked and helped us buy our first home and because of working with Susi, we came away with a very positive experience. I would recommend Susi to anyone who may ask!


Buying and selling a home can be very stressful. However, through my experience of working with Susi, she was able to alleviate many of the stresses that come with the process. Because of her experience, diligence, and organizational skills she was able to get my previous home sold and help me find a new place very quickly. The professionalism of both Susi and her team are above and beyond that of any other realtor I’ve worked with in the past.


Paul helped our family sell and purchase our home, and we were very happy with the whole process. The Haviland team brought fantastic experience and perspective from staging through closing, and I don’t know what we could have done without them. Paul was kind and attentive as well as being a tremendous negotiator. We are so glad we had his guidance.


Sorry we are experiencing system issues. Please try again.
