There is a lot that goes into selling your home in Madison, WI for top dollar. It’s important to work with a REALTOR® who will do the hard work for you – so selling your home doesn’t add stress to your daily life. 

The 608 Team is Madison, Wisconsin’s most comprehensive brick-and-mortar boutique real estate firm. We are Wisconsin’s first and only RE/MAX® collection office – a designation given to luxury offices that provide the highest level of service.

Between our expansive network, and innovative marketing strategies, we guarantee an unparalleled real estate experience. The 608 Team will sell your home for more money, in less time, every time.

We know you want to sell your home quickly, but without being pushed into a contract you didn’t want, just so the agent could get the sale. At The 608 Team, we work to sell your home as if it were our own. All of our team members take a personalized approach, arming you with the knowledge you need to make informed, empowered decisions.

The steps we take with our sellers are personalized and thorough. Here is what you can expect when selling your home with The 608 Team:

1. Seller Consultation and Listing Contract

When you reach out to us about selling your home in the Madison, Wisconsin area, we will meet, in person or virtually, to talk about your goals. We will prepare an informed, detailed market analysis to help you determine the optimal selling price that will attract the most buyers.

2. Staging, photos and 3D tour

Let’s be real. Staging sells homes faster and for more money. Our team knows what works and what doesn’t. We have in-house stagers and referrals for contractors to make sure your home has a luxurious finish. We’ll then showcase it with beautiful photography and video.
