“I have very much enjoyed my several years of residency at Diversey Manor as well as your Ogden property on Oakland Ave. in Shorewood and would continue to reside in an Ogden property should one be available to suit my needs. I would also highly recommend Ogden & Company, Inc. to others. I greatly appreciate the management of Annette and Ron, they have always been very helpful and a pleasure to work with. They do an excellent job.”
“My husband Conrad and I live in the Avondale Condominium Association development in Pewaukee, WI, and your company provides our community with the services of Chad Emrath, our property manager.
Chad and his associate, Mary Franklin, have lead the way for all of us living in a condo environment in understanding our status as condo owners, and all of the Wisconsin statutes regarding our Association’s responsibilities.
It is my privilege to acknowledge the importance of these two Ogden staff members. We know we are very fortunate to have the services of Ogden & Company, Inc. represented through Chad Emrath and Mary Franklin.”
“We want to thank you for all you did to help us finally find our dream home. We absolutely love living here. You are a wonderful realtor who made the whole process less scary and fun.”

We hope to be in this house for several years to come and hopefully start our family here! You provided sound advice and great guidance. Your name will be my top recommended realtor, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.”

“After ten years of running the Whitnall Grove Condo Association since its inception, the Board of Directors decided to look into hiring a management company. It was not an easy decision because we did not want to lose our autonomy regarding all the various issues. Still, the work load for the Board had become more complex and time consuming. After much soul searching and investigating various companies, we decided to hire Ogden. We could not have made a better choice.
From the get go, Ogden has been by our side on everything – meeting with us personally, answering any and all questions via email, guiding us through the whole transition, and putting our mind at ease. There has never been one iota of “hard sell” from Ogden. That’s not the way they operate. They are here to work with us and to take over the immense work load that has built up over the years.
The lines of communication are so solid. In short, Ogden is always there for us with an expert, knowledgeable, – and I have to say enjoyable - staff. As mentioned earlier – we could not have made a better choice!”

“Brian and I cannot thank you enough for helping us find the home of our dreams! Having you as our realtor made the home buying experience easy and fun… and we feel you have become like a friend to us. Thank you again, Judy, for all of your hard work, care and support!”
Nicole & Brian
“We wanted to thank you again for all of your help & guidance with our first home purchase. You were very helpful, answered all our questions and walked us through every step. We really appreciated your time and knowledge. We love our new home! We will recommend you to our friends & family!”
Carlos & Katherine
“I recently had the unfortunate experience of dropping my keys in the elevator and losing them down the elevator shaft. I'm sure you can imagine how distraught I felt at that moment. Thank God a friend of mine in the building had a key to my Unit so I could at least get in.
Once in my condo, I immediately called Julie. I heard back from her within minutes. I explained the situation to Julie and she immediately took charge of the situation. Suffice it to say, I had my keys back within 24 hours. I don't mean to minimize the steps Julie took to resolve this matter for me, but don't intend to bore you with all the detail.
The point of this email is to express my sincere gratitude to Julie, and to let the entire Van Buren City Lofts Board know just how responsive/reactive Julie was to my immediate need. Her attention to my situation was immediate, professional and very compassionate. I am very grateful to know that we are in such good care with Julie at Ogden.”
“I was apprehensive about a property management company actively involved with the day-to-day operations of my condo building, but it has been a positive experience since the beginning. Ogden's professional staff has been there to provide assistance, information and problem resolution whenever needed. Most importantly, the Ogden Property Management team has quickly responded to my phone calls, letters and emails. I appreciate being treated like a valued client, not just a name on an owner list.”
