Waukesha County Real Estate: Start your University of Wisconsin education in Waukesha   Leave a comment

 

 Recently I caught up with a friend I that was on his way to take a class. I asked him “Where are you taking your class?” He informed me he was taking it at UW-Waukesha because he wanted to better himself and he enjoyed taking classes on a regular basis. Continuing education at it’s best.The University of Wisconsin located in Waukesha, Wisconsin has grown. It is known for the amazing quality and teaching that is synonymous with the entire UW system. The quality of a University of Wisconsin education is superb, and you also get the great recognition that comes with the Badger state. This is an excellent start in the University of Wisconsin system and allows you to transfer into the larger UW system. Upon finishing UW-Waukesha many students may transfer to UW-Madison, or UW-Milwaukee, other great UW campuses, and other Universities. In 2007 the University of Wisconsin-Madison had research expenditures of 913 million (the third largest in science and engineering and the largest in non-science expenditures in the nation).Information per Wikipedia. Please see: University of Wisconsin-Madison . Wisconsin is a great place to get your college education. For more on theUniversity of Wisconsin, Waukesha please see :University of Wisconsin Waukesha, for more on the UW system please see:University of Wisconsin System

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all the Waukesha County Real Estate market   Leave a comment

As we enter the Memorial Day weekend we get ready to enjoy our friends, family, perhaps barbeque, and enjoy the Memorial Day weekend. We remember the friends we had, maybe the relatives, the people we read about, and the people that we may never meet that were proud, dedicated to our protection, and their love for our wonderful country. They served; and they paid an extreme and ultimate price for a country that is the greatest country in the World. They did not come back home and as we are enjoying our weekend perhaps we could take a minute out and think of those in the service, and remember the many that are with us in memory and spirit. Happy Memorial Day and to our friends in Canada I hope you enjoyed your Victoria Day . For more on the history and Memorial day click here:Memorial Day

How Do You Pronounce That City In the Waukesha County Real Estate market?   Leave a comment

In the Waukesha County Real Estate market there is always something interesting going on. It seems like everytime I take my credit card out to pay my lead generating company fidelityassets , or just about anything from the RedX for cold calling leads, to you name it I have the same general response “How do you pronounce that City in Waukesha County?” For example there is The City of Waukesha . Then people have a hard time with the City of  OconomowocMuskego is easy, but The Village of  Chenequa  throws them.Okauchee  is hard, Mukwonago is rather easy, Menomonee Falls most get right, Monches  is simple. Most get the City of Pewaukee  right. Yet they have a time with The Village of Nashotah

A lot of Waukesha County Cities, Towns,and Villages have names given to them by the wonderful native american people that first lived here. For example “Waukesha” is an Algonquin word which has the meaning “fox” or “little foxes,” though it is actually an Anglicization of the Ojibwe proper name Waagoshag or the Potawatomi name Wau-tsha. Wau-tsha (sometimes written as Wauk-tsha[7] or Wauke-tsha)                                                                                                               (source:wikipedia)

The area known as Oconomowoc was named by the Potowatomi Indians, and they called it Coo-No-Mo-Wauk (“where the waters meet”, or “river of lakes”), which in time would become Oconomowoc.                                                                                                  (source:wikipedia)

Waukesha County Lake Property in the Waukesha County Real Estate market   1 comment

 Every once in awhile I have people relocating , moving, buying a home in Waukesha County, or in general ask me “Hey Tom Braatz, where and what is the Lake Country?” I usually reply as a Realtor would “That’s a good question and I am glad you brought it up.” There are a lot of wonderful Waukesha County Lake property in this region.

 Often when the friendly faces of buyers ask where the abundance of lakes are in the Waukesha County Real Estate market one will answer with “The Lake Country“. Due to its multitude of lakes, the northwestern corner of Waukesha County is referred to as Lake Country by its local residents. It includes Pewaukee, Delafield, Hartland, Merton, Nashotah, Chenequa, Okauchee Lake, Oconomowoc, Summit, and Lac La Belle.
