I worked with Andrea Potterton for the purchase of my very first home, and she was absolutely wonderful. Her professionalism and responsiveness were top notch. Each step of the way, she walked me carefully through what the process would be like and what I should expect. I never worried, knowing that Andrea was working tirelessly behind the scenes to make everything come together. When she arrived (always promptly, of course) to showings, she would come packet in hand with all the materials on the home for me to look at already prepared, and when the home buying process began Andrea was a steady guide to explain to me how everything worked and what I should do in each particular scenario. I highly recommend Andrea and Potterton Rule.Emilee G from Dodgeville
"Chris was great to work with. He was both knowledgeable and cooperative throughout the entire selling process."Nicole T
Andrea represented us in the recent sale of our house. She was very knowledgeable and effective. We had two offers and an accepted offer within a week. We were told by the buyers that the web pictures and great video she arranged got them to look at our house. During the closing procedure there were some hiccups that she walked us through effectively. We would recommend her and her agency for anyone selling.Brian O of Dodgeville, WI
Though I loved my house and property, I decided it was becoming unmanageable for me. At the recommendation of a friend and neighbor, I called Andrea Potterton. She was not only friendly, but also professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She has extensive experience of today's housing market and the in's and out's of financing. Anytime I had a question, day or night, she answered quickly. I can't think of anyone else I'd have to help buy or sell any property I own in the future. I highly recommend Andrea for all your housing needs.Lisa B of Lake Mills, WI
We had a great experience working with Andrea at Potterton Rule, Inc. From the initial consultation right up to the closing process, we could not have asked for a more helpful or professional agent. A lot has changed in the real estate market in the 20+ years since we sold our first home, so her experience was a huge asset while we navigated the process of selling our second home. Selling a home can feel like a daunting prospect, even when there isn't a pandemic. But Andrea showed us it can be done safely and quickly - we still can't get over how quickly our house sold! Thank you Andrea and to your entire team.Patrick M in Dodgeville, WI
Knowledge and willingness to help. We connected with Jeff on purchasing a home and his knowledge and speedy delivery made the process extremely smooth for two first time home buyers. Jeff was always available to answer our questions and provided answers prior to us asking which showed his knowledge and willingness to help. Jeff goes above and beyond with his timeliness which helped us close in under three weeks on our new home. I cannot be anymore please with Jeff, I would highly recommend Jeff for any real estate business.Erik K., Dodgeville, Winconsin
Working with Potterton Rule is always a pleasant experience. They are very professional and knowledgeable about the industries they serve.Dillon K
Chrissie was very helpful in our home buying experience. She answered all our questions in a timely manner and if she didn’t know the answer, she found out from one of her counterparts. She was almost excited as we were when we learned our offer was accepted!! Thank you Chrissie for all your help!!!Jennifer S
We worked with Dan Steinback recently for the purchase of our first home. We decided to work with Dan because of his informal and easy going personality and I'm so glad we did! We appreciated his down to earth sense of humor and his honesty. There wasn't a moment through the process that we felt like we couldn't trust his word and advice. He was so easy to get a hold of through the whole process, gave great suggestions, and (most importantly to us) brought a years of great insight and experience to our house hunt. Ultimately Dan helped us find our dream home (one we wouldn't have even looked at!) and guided us through the process - he made it easy! I honestly can't say enough good things about our experience with him. I'd HIGHLY recommend working with him for your house hunt!Brandon and Sarah P
Paul helped us buy and sell 5 properties in SW Wisconsin from a small farm to a small flophouse. His knowledge and integrity are second to none. I would highly recommend anybody looking for a knowledgeable realtor in SW Wisconsin to make their first call to Paul Place.Pete S
We have been so happy here and done so much already that has made it "ours". The kitchen and extra room ( now family room) are beautiful and the living/dining room is awesome since pulling up the carpet and seeing the BEAUTIFUL hard wood floor in almost mint condition! I remember telling you that we were NEVER getting this house and you telling me it had a lot of potential. I am glad that I listened to you and compromised with my husband ( I got new appliances out of it LOL)! Really, thanks for everything! Nothing has felt better than waking up every morning in OUR home.Brittany and Lee T
Brenda sold our house very fast and was easy to work with. She was always to make sure to look out for our best interests! I would enlist her help if purchasing or selling a home in this area. Brenda was very familiar with the area, and very informative.Amy M
I have had the privilege of working with Paul on 3 separate occasions. My first was for an appraisal for some property for my father's estate, another when he helped me sell my house in just 4 days and the most recent was his help in selling some woodland property that I shared with my two siblings. Paul was always willing to help with any question any of us had such as how much should we ask for our property, what's the market like, when is the best time to put things on the market? He ALWAYS returned emails or phone calls in a timely manner and I really appreciated his every 2 week snail mail updates, whether there was activity or where things were being advertised. He was "Johnny on the spot" when a neighbor issue transpired and he helped alleviate it in a very timely and professional manner. He wasn't pushy or opinionated or bossy but always gave us options and was very polite. Even my siblings who never actually met him face to face shared with me that they had confidence in his expertise and professionalism just from his excellent communications via email. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help us with selling our property.ingrido5
Paul was very helpful in my search for a new home. I felt no pressure and he was always willing to do whatever he could to aid me in my search. His low-key approach was exactly what I needed, making what could have been a stressful situation a rather relaxing one instead. I highly recommend Paul Place.Kevin S.
Merv was very personable from the start! Knows the town and the people. I was very impressed at how many people knew him! His rapport with other realtors made our buying process a breeze!keciaking
Jessica was so great to work with! She made it so easy for us and was able to help complete the process to our dream home. She took calls on the weekends and nights and went above and beyond to be sure we knew what we were doing as first time homebuyers.Jenna
Andrea is very professional and personable. She has wonderful knowledge of the market and educates her clients every step of the way. She goes above and beyond and makes what can be a stressful and emotional process as seamless as possible. We sold a home and bought a home with Andrea and we couldn't be happier! She's the best!Angela B.
After meeting with several realtors before meeting with Jessica, we were feeling a little overwhelmed as first time home buyers. Once we met Jessica though, the whole experience changed. She was so helpful and good at explaining everything, not to mention accommodating to our schedules. After about a year of looking we finally found a home that was just what we were looking for, where we were looking and in our price range. No easy task, but Jessica helped us get there. We loved working with Jessica and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!Megan & Max K
We worked with Jeff “JT” Thomas a number of times over the years. We appreciate his no pressure, hometown approach to selling real estate. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property in our area.Jim
I have worked with Andrea for a while now, she has helped me both sell and purchase homes. Her amazing communication and ability to get any information you need quickly is the reason I'll continue to use her and Potterton Rule Inc. in the future.Brandon B.
Kari Kelliher understood what we were looking for. She made the whole process very easy. Thanks for holding my hand through it all! - Madison, WIMary Kay U.

Jessica was very helpful and efficient while we were searching for our home. She always came prepared with more properties to look at to keep the ball rolling. She was also very helpful when the closing came near. Jessica was in contact with the home builder and our financial team and helped answer any questions we had. We will recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a new homeHeidi
