It’s no secret that many real estate agents are on call days, nights, weekends -- sometimes even while on vacation -- especially when the market is hot.

For Chris Venden, early mornings are for quiet, calm, and quality time with her spouse and dog. Even if she’s up late writing offers, Chris is an early riser and time blocks a couple of hours to prepare her schedule and set the tone for a positive, productive day.

As soon as Chris is awake she’ll do a quick check of her emails and texts, and if nothing is urgent she’ll ease into her morning routine at her countryside

At Mad City Dream Homes, we're always in learning mode. One of the ways we’re honing our craft this year is by participating in “market analysis mastermind” sessions. In preparation for each session, each agent performs an independent market analysis for an upcoming listing. Then we meet over Zoom to share our individual price opinions and form a consensus on the best price for the property. 

Mad City Dream Homes Mastermind Sessions

We're noticing two nice outcomes from our sessions. First, our mastermind sessions are resulting in some great discussion and helping all of us stay sharp in this year’s fast-paced market. Plus, each session allows us to tap into our collective expertise as a way to add value for a home-selling client.

Technology makes it so easy to connect with friends and family. But there’s something really special about receiving an old-fashioned, handwritten note. When we receive a personal note, we feel supported, appreciated, and cared for. The words mean a lot to us when someone takes time to put pen to paper and share their good wishes with us.

In 2017, when I made a career switch from journalism to two part-time positions in real estate marketing with Mad City Dream Homes and communications with a Madison-based environmental nonprofit, I had no idea what to expect. In that time, I have learned so much about these fields of work as well as what I find fulfilling each day. And what fuels me most is finding creative ways to connect with others to help them achieve their goals. Thanks to the support of Dan Miller and this amazing team, I will be able to do more of what I love with people whom I respect. 

I am excited to announce that my role is growing on the Mad City Dream Homes team! In November, I will transition to a full-time position as a marketing and community outreach specialist to

Maureen Moran Realtor Madison WIMaureen Moran joined our real estate team two-and-a-half years ago when she moved from New York and returned to her Wisconsin roots. As we were interviewing Maureen and learning more about her, one of the things that jumped out at us was the glowing praise she consistently received from her clients. For example, here is one of her online reviews that really caught our attention as we were learning more about Maureen:

"Maureen is the hardest working and most diligent realtor that I have ever worked with. She looks at situations from multiple perspectives and always looks for the best solution.
