“I am a first time home buyer with the help of Austin Hanthorn. I stopped by an open house Austin had at a home I always admired. I walked in and it immediately felt like home. I was intimidated by the process since I had never been through it before. Austin is very easy going but has very high professional standards when he is helping you find your perfect home. Before I knew it I was on my way to owning my first home. This journey was very special to me and I wouldn’t have wanted to go through this with anyone else than Austin, not only because of his professional wisdom and guidance, but because he is my Son. Thank you, Austin for helping me find my forever home.”

“I am a very demanding person and expect a lot from a realtor. Bethany exceeded our expectations in every regard! Bethany truly listened to what we were looking for, was very thorough but never pushy, and once we found the property we wanted, she was there for us throughout the entire negotiation, inspection, remediation, and closing process. And since this was a new locale for us she even provided us with information as to contacts and services in the area! Bethany continues to follow-up just to be sure we have everything we need in our new home! I am completely comfortable and confident in recommending Bethany! We will be using Bethany to sell our other home next Spring!”

“First time home buyer and long time dreamer here. Thanks to Austin for making our dream a reality. Austin helped us navigate this process and put us in touch with the right people.

We worked with Austin for several months. At first the plan was to scrape up a fixer upper and we looked at several properties. Once the FED started raising interest rates that lit a fire under my seat. These historic low rates will soon be behind us, so we changed gears and decided to buy a home that we can love right now.

There were several houses on our ‘excited about’ list. We decided to look at the one on top of that list, loved it and had Austin put our offer in. In the end we were out-bid. After we received the news we quickly shot Austin our entire list. Within a few short hours Austin was able to contact all of the selling agents and find out about their status. I was shocked that all but one of those properties already had accepted offers. (You will love how quick, dedicated, & knowledgeable Austin is, it makes all the difference)

Austin was able to get us in to see that property that day and put our offer in. Through negotiations Austin alerted us of some potential red flags. That prompted us to search the MLS again, and decline the “As is” counter offer. Luckily A fresh house in the same neighborhood became available. Austin jumped on the news, got us in and put in our offer.

Austin taught us about Mortgage shopping and we were able to find the right lender for us. He also put us in touch with a good home inspector. Thanks for making this new experience seem familiar. If you’re a dreamer and have any questions about the home buying process, reach out and get in contact with Austin. There is no better time then now.”

I was looking for a distressed home in the Edgerton area and I worked with Austin. He has an amazing personality and a genuine interest in working with the house seeker! I live about 2 hours away from the house I was looking at purchasing and Austin went above and beyond to make the process and research convenient. On several occasions he went to meet with an inspector, and 2 different contractors to get bids for me. He did extensive research for me looking into local ordinances about permits and what issues I may encounter if I purchased this particular home. He also got me all the answers to every question I asked about the auction process. Bottom line: Austin is a great asset to the team and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a house in his area!”

“I worked with another realtor first and was unhappy with his inability to get me into houses to look at them. I found Patrick’s name and gave him a list of houses that I wanted to look at. He got me in a few days later. He was in contact with me through every step of the home buying process. He answered all of my questions and never made me feel like I was bothering him. Even though I know I was with all of my questions. He is definitely the realtor to work with. I am referring him to everyone I know looking for a house.”

He was professional, courteous and went above and beyond for us. Patrick responded within the hour whenever we had a question on anything, including an issue we had after we moved into our new home. He answered all of our questions, and went out of his way to find the answer to anything he didn’t know. I would strongly recommend Patrick Collins’ realtor services to anyone. We couldn’t have found our home without him!”

He not only retrieved the form I was looking for but went above and beyond to send me copies of all the paperwork in case I needed it. He spent a lot of time showing us houses because we had to drive in every weekend from out of state to look at houses. He is very helpful and very professional!”

“I recently moved from Arizona to Wisconsin and initially started working with Patrick because he was immediately responsive to my questions about the housing market in Madison. Prior to my even making the move, he was an excellent resource to me in explaining the process, timelines, and logistics of buying and financing a home. Once I arrived in Madison, Patrick worked with my schedule and continued to be available for any questions that I had. He was friendly and provided the necessary information without being overbearing, and as I moved into the purchasing phase, Patrick’s efficiency in all aspects was key in ensuring a smooth closing process. I very much enjoyed working with Patrick and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!”

“Bethany was an excellent agent; she helped us buy our dream home! She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market, schools and areas we were interested in. She gave us great advice on homes and did a great job negotiating our home. We gave one offer before settling in our current home and her predictions about the house we gave the offer on was perfect. She was also always on time and very responsive to emails, texts and phone calls. I would highly recommend working with her and have recommended her to all my friends and family who are looking to purchase a home.

Our home buying experience with Bethany was exceptional.”

“When we were seeking to purchase our first home, we were faced with a major decision to rent for another year or take a leap of faith. We started working with WF months ahead of time so that we would be ready to buy a home when our lease expired in the spring. I already had a real estate agent in mind who was a colleague of mine for years. So we reached out to her and went ahead and submitted our application with all of the required paper work only to run into snags with our application.

Special circumstances arose when our landlord denied our request for a month to month lease accommodation so that we could enjoy a smoother transition. The end of our lease was looming and after 3 years of renting a home much too small for a family of 6, we knew it was time to move on. Not sure what to do we knew what we didn’t want to do – stay. So we took the leap and applied for our 2nd pre-approval with QL and got pre-approved.

My colleague-now-turn-agent wasn’t very familiar with QL and the recommendation was made to meet with Bethany Alexander. Reluctant, but eager to find a home, we decided to give Bethany a shot. After months of viewing, reviewing, and researching homes on the market, we found a home we liked. We asked Bethany to put an offer in ASAP.

To our dismay, the owner of the home rejected our offer because he didn’t like our lender. Bethany asked for recommendations and we agreed to go along with the recommendations of the owner for a 3rd pre-approval attempt with WB&T. Obviously, we were working with a very small window of time. Bethany worked feverishly and favorably with the lender representative to get all the pieces in place almost overnight. Before we knew it we were pre-approved, an offer was made and accepted, and we were blessed through Bethany to close the deal on our first home in almost miraculous fashion!!!

I’d recommend Bethany Alexander and Rock Realty to anyone! These folks helped make our dreams come true and we will be forever thankful for the tremendous job they did under incredible circumstances.”

“Bethany was *such* an excellent partner to work with in selling our place and securing our next home. She is so hands on and knowledgeable, patient and quick to respond. I met with multiple realtors before choosing who to work with, and Bethany blew away the competition in our first meeting. What’s even better is that feeling never went away as we worked with her over the course of selling our home and finding our current one.

Trust Bethany’s instincts and let her show you what the standard of realty should be. A few other Rock Realty associates helped along the way as well, and I have nothing but rave reviews for Bethany, Michael, and Matt.”

“I worked with Matt Heitmann at Rock Realty. He showed us a lot of homes in our price range and sent links to view when new homes that were listed which fit what we were looking for. When we found the home we really loved, we made an appointment to have a second showing. Someone made an offer on it before our second showing and he let us know right away so we could decide if we wanted to move on it or keep looking. He made the entire process pleasant. We would definitely buy another home with their help if we should ever have to move again”

Mike Collins recently helped us purchase a home. Over a five month time period he sent us info on several listings that met our price point, size requirements, and preferred area. Since we were looking for a retirement property we were very picky. Mike never lost patience with us. He contacted us about a foreclosure listing even before it was on the Internet and arranged a showing within 24 hours. His knowledge of foreclosure auction procedures helped us purchase the property at a lower price than we ever thought possible. Thanks Mike and Rock Realty for helping us find the perfect house!”

“We found Mike after a bad experience with another Realtor. He was amazing. We had a lot of needs in a home since we had my mother in law who also needed a space. We went to many houses and he spent countless hours showing us around. through the whole process and the closing he was amazing.”

“Mike Collins went above and beyond my expectations of what a realtor could and would do for their client. He has true heart, and gave so much time and effort to my condo sale. Mike really understood what my goal was in the sale of my condo. It was a very difficult sale, due to many issues out of his control, but he never faltered. He kept me feeling at ease through some challenging times. After a lengthy back and forth with buyer, and many bank obstacles, we’ve finally closed on my condo. Without Mike, this sale would not have happened. I would recommend Mike and company to anyone, you won’t be disappointed”

She goes out of her way to get things done fast and to make others get their side of things done fast as well. She is always just a phone call or a text message away. No matter what bump in the road we hit, we always hit it together and she always bent over backward to smooth it back out. I would recommend Bethany to anyone buying a home.

“I hired Mike Collins because of his credentials, then ended up being blown away by his dauntless performance. The selling process (at least in my case) was beyond complicated, and Mike was equal to all the challenges. His attention to innumerable details, his communication with the different parties and entities, and his patience with unexpected twists all add to his professional expertise, and he gets the job done. Hire him.”

We moved out of state before the sale and Mike took care of all of the coordination with the bank and the title company on making sure all paperwork was done properly.

“We found Mike online, and, due to positive reviews, phoned him with a request to view houses in the Madison area. We gave Mike no more than one or two days notice, but he was happy to devote the whole of his weekend to us. Our entire house-hunting experience proceeded in similar fashion. We were hunting for houses long distance, so we would wait until an opportunity to travel to Madison presented itself, phone Mike, giving him one or two days to prepare, and show up to view houses. The process took roughly one year to complete. It was long and difficult, but Mike was always pleasant, never complained, made an effort to make himself immediately available, and was never pushy.

Mike is not like many real estate agents who simply want to make a sale, any sale. Instead, Mike made an effort to help us make an honest assessment of the properties we viewed, often pointing out problems himself. Mike left us with no doubt of his honesty and his dedication to his clients.

In addition, since we were shopping long-distance, Mike, with some help from his associate Bethany (who we found to be similarly pleasant and eager to be of service), even took hundreds of high definition photos of properties which he viewed in our stead, often with only a single day’s notice. Mike, or one of his associates, would then promptly email the photos to us to view.

During the house-hunting process we changed our minds a number of times, imposed last minute requests, and even had some near melt-downs, but, through it all, Mike was responsive, cheerful, and level-headed. We cannot overstate how hard Mike worked on our behalf. We highly recommend him to any home buyers.”

“My husband and I are beyond thankful that we called Michael Collins on a whim last month when we were searching for a foreclosed home to purchase in the Janesville area. We saw a little square ad on the side of the web page that I was looking at and I told my husband, hey call him and maybe he can help us find a property. Little did we know that single phone call would only be the beginning of our journey of searching for a home. Mike went out of his way to help us find the type of property we were looking for. You just don’t find the level of personal attention and customer service that Mike provided us with very often these days.

Anyone I talk to, if they are even thinking about buying or selling their home, I am the first to tell them that they need to call Mike at Rock Realty. You are not going to find a more motivated, and dedicated sales agent out there. To say he went above and beyond what you would expect from an agent these days is a total understatement. Thank you Mike, and Rock Realty for making our dreams come alive with home ownership.”

“Mike Collins was easy to talk to and very good at explaining in detail all aspects of the short sale of the property. With a lot of patience, he walked me through the process of a short sale. He was understanding of my plight and very sympathetic.
Mike was a pleasure to work with and he is a man of his word.
Thank you, Mike, and best of luck to you.”

“This was a great effort from Mike Collins. He did a super super job with the selling of our home in Wisconsin. I could not ask for more from him as he kept me well informed of things going on and we are 1200 miles apart. He did more than a 110 percent job on everything. Even removing snow and whatever it took to have our home ready to show. Again, THANKS Mike for everything. Great Job!!!!!!”

“Approx 4 years ago.. I was having some financial strain. I wasn’t able to keep up with a first and second mortgage alone as a single mom.

Through friends and family, I was introduced to Mike and Matt.

I didn’t want to have to go through the foreclosure process, because I knew that I would be able to pull through the mess I was in within a few years and I didn’t want to have that looming over me.

Matt and Mike were able to take over and help me with a short sale. They worked with me directly. They both came to my home, sat down, helped me understand this delicate process (which remains total Greek to me), and they were extremely efficient. My bank worked with me and these gentlemen, and withing approx 3 months, my home was sold in a short sale.

I remain amazed at their abilities and their continued efforts to help me.

Now, 3 years later, I’m looking to purchase… I have looked them up again… and they are helping me find a home that I’m looking for within my specifications and they also have resources to assist with lending.

Couldn’t ask for more!!

Thanks so much my friends!! you do an awesome job… Keep up the great work!”

“I had a very challenging home sale and Mike Collins was diligent every step of the way. The most difficult aspect may have been me, I was very specific about which closing dates worked and how I wanted to proceed. Mike patiently answered all of my questions and accommodated all of my requests. When issues between the title and mortgage companies arose, Mike was a swift and competent negotiator. I know that the buyer’s agent was very impressed with Mike as well. My house had an accepted offer within 10 days of listing. I am amazed that it all went so smoothly. THANKS MIKE!”

Even with a long and stressful short sale Michael was always positive and reassuring that things would work out. I’ve bought and sold other houses but by far Michael was the best realtor I have ever had. I would recommend him to anyone!!! Five stars!!! Thanks again Michael!! Great job!!!”

“My home was in foreclosure, and I was going to turn it over to the bank, untill I spoke with Mike about putting my house up for a Short Sale. He explained the advantages of a short sale vs foreclosure, and I decided to let Mike sell my home. My mortgage company put up many roadblocks along the way, but Mike was able to solve everything. In the end Mike worked very hard on this sale. I am very happy with his skills at dealing with buyers/sellers, and Mortgage companies. I would recommend Michael Collins and Rock Realty in the future.”

“Michael Collins and Matt Heitmann with Rock Realty were great! I have been searching for a House/Condo for the past 3 years, and they were with me the whole way. Even through all of the struggles we had to deal with, they didn’t give up on me. They gave me great advice, and didn’t pressure me into making any decisions that they thought I would regret. Michael and Matt both actually even told me not to buy in some cases because they thought the house or condo would not be a good fit for me.

The overall experience was great, and I will definitely be using Michael Collins and Matt Heitmann of Rock Realty with my next home purchase.”

“Mike Collins helped us sell our home, he was a very nice guy and always there when we had any questions or concerns! Mike went above and beyond and even helped paint the house when there was a time crunch for the inspection. We appreciated all that Mike did!”

“My first listing contract (with another agency) expired without a single showing. I contacted Mike Collins hoping to get some straight advice about whether he thought the property would ever sell versus letting the lender foreclose on the property and save my mortgage payments for legal counsel. He was upfront from day one. He told me that it would take a while and that I’d probably have to hold it through the winter (I called him in September) but it would probably sell in the spring. His honesty made me immediately willing to hire him. He found a buyer in May and worked with my lender to close the sale in record time.”

“I am nothing but honored and enthusiastic to be able to write and highly recommend Mike Collins with Rock Reality for your next real estate adventure. I had a very negative experience with a different major realtor in the Janesville area who rushed me in an out of houses, pressuring me to sign purchase agreements, and caring more about the money then the person and the house that best fit them.

It was just the opposite with Mr. Collins. Mike with Rock Reality is honest, takes the time to find the right home for you without pressure, cares more about doing what is right by his clients and his reputation than just simply making the sale. For Mike, word of mouth is the best advertising he can get and he cherishes keeping his positive.

Mike Collins and Rock Realty were fair and thorough. When it came to signing contracts and paperwork, Mike took the time to go line-by-line to make sure I understood exactly what I was signing. Never did I feel like I was being rushed or taking up time from a different appointment.

With great pleasure and gratitude, I recommend Mike Collins and Rock Reality for your next home hunt or sale.”

“We are writing this testimonial to inform any potential clients that Michael Collins successfully helped save our home. We found ourselves in a financial hardship which caused us to be late on mortgage payments. This eventually led our lender to foreclose on our home. Michael Collins was able to negotiate with our lender and cancel the court auction. This gave us time to resolve our financial difficulties and eventually work out a payment plan with the bank.”

“We both strongly endorse Michael Collins as an agent who has the experience and resources to help people like us in a similar situation. We are deeply gratefull for his efforts and plan to use him as our agent in any future real estate transactions.”

“I found myself in a bad financial spot when I lost one of the two jobs I was working. Soon I didn’t have the money to pay even my most important bills. After falling behind in payments on my house I was contacted by Rock Realty. They suggested that instead of losing my house through foreclosure I should attempt to do a short sale on my home.

It was easy working with Matthew and Michael from Rock Realty. They were able to keep a foreclosure off of my records and lift a huge weight off of my shoulders. The couple that we sold the home to were very happy to get it at such a cheap price. I would recommend Rock Realty to anyone who may be struggling to make their house payments.”
