After years of working as competitors, two of Ripon’s real-estate firms have joined forces.
First Look Realty has become a part of Century 21, joining the nation-wide realty earlier this summer. The sale was completed July 1.
And it comes at a time when Century 21 Properties Unlimited — located at 1194 W. Fond du Lac St. in the Pick ’n Save/Kmart shopping plaza — already is being honored for its overall strength as well.
First Look joins Century 21
The consolidation of First Look Realty into Century 21 Properties Unlimited is not a spur-of-the-moment decision.
“I’ve been talking with Heidi [Schwanke, owner of First Look] for about a year now to join us,” said Tony Dolgner, owner of the Ripon franchise of Century 21. “I just thought they would be a nice fit.”
Schwanke has been thrilled with how the choice has benefitted her customers.
“It seemed to be a good fit, so we decided to join teams,” she said. “And all my listings came with me, which I am thankful for.”
