Hi Brandon,
Yes, you can purchase the home from abroad like the other agents said. If you have a relative in the area, sometimes it's nice for them to preview the house for you. I would be more than happy to work with a friend or relative in your behalf. Otherwise feel free to call or email me directly. 262-658-1400

Yes, it can easily be done online. We can now use electronic signautres on all real estate contracts in Wisconisn. You may need to talk to your bank or a local mortgage broker to get pre-approved for the amount of the purchase but this, too can be done over the phone or online. You will need to wrk with a reputable realtor as a "Buyer's Agent", so they can handle a lot of the negotiations for you in your absence. Also you should check out realtors who have earned professional designations, meaning they have taken additional courses to be able to serve you better. Desigantions such as GRI -Graduate of the Realty Institute ( aout 90 hours of extra course work), ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative ( a two day course) and CRS (Council of Residential Specialists) are the ones to look for.

I routinely use electronic signatures with my clients to speed up responses to offers and counter-offers during the purchase cycle. We may have to schedule the final closing of the sale to a date after your return, however. I would be glad to answer any other questions you may have. You can send me an email at
