Mary Jo Eskritt originally was born and raised in rural Central Wisconsin on a 4th generation family dairy farm. From the time she was old enough to help with the farm chores, both in the field and in the barn, she learned the value of hard work and making a contribution as a family unit working together during the planting, growing and harvesting season. She also became one of the chief ‘ milk maids’ for the dairy herd. She also worked ‘picking pickles’ to earn her way through college. She strives daily to be an example of what a difference hard work and a grateful heart can make.

Testimonials from Past Clients
“Mary Jo was fabulous to work with. She was both professional and personable. That woman has the patience of a saint! Always available on the spur of the moment to answer my questions and concerns. I couldn’t have been more pleased.”
– Teri H.
“We could not have asked for more from Mary Jo–she is incredibly responsive (we are in Savannah, creating some challenges); she is quite resourceful; her attention to detail is excellent; she is as attuned to her clients as one can get! And she is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent. This wasn’t our first rodeo–we have been around the block with multiple real estate transactions in four states, dealing with some excellent agents along the way. Mary Jo is right there with the cream of the crop. You are missing out if you don’t use her!” – Tom A.
“We have had experiences with realtors in the past…some good and some not so good. Our experience with Mary Jo was by far the best that either of us have had. She asked the right questions and was always there when we had a question. She was very proactive in the closing which was far less stressful than it could have been. We will definitely use her again in any real estate needs. She is THE BEST!”
– Jim & Kathy C.
“I can’t say enough good things about Mary Jo Eskritt – she really pulled out all the stops to help me sell my home! It was particularly challenging as I was located in another city and had to repeatedly rely on Mary Jo and her vast network of resources to help deal with things such as needed minor repairs. Thanks to her the house looked great and was able to finally come under contract!”
– Kathleen M.
“We chose to go the VA loan route, which can be daunting considering what is required and more so with our budget. Mary Jo and her team not only found the perfect house, for us and the VA, but they made the process very easy to understand and as enjoyable as buying a home could be. Thank you, Mary Jo.”
– Past Client, 2017
“Having used Mary Jo Eskritt with our last home sale and purchase and being aware of her expertise in real estate (35 years experience), we chose Mary Jo again to assist in the sale of our home. She reviewed sales information with us and we were pleased with the asking price that we selected. She provided us with copies of pictures of our home prior to listing in MLS. The pictures met our approval and Mary Jo proceeded to list our home. Within a week we had received and accepted an offer of 99% of our asking price. The weeks prior to closing Mary Jo kept us current on all the happenings regarding our closing. The closing went as scheduled. In the meantime Mary Jo has assisted us with selecting our new home. We wholeheartedly recommend Mary Jo Eskritt!”

She helped my through some house related trials and tribulations with complete professionalism! If buying a house again is ever in my future, she will again be my go to person!” – Mary G.
