We were very fortunate to have worked with Wilgus Associates in the purchase of our Bethany Proper Townhome in January 2019.  We would like to give a special thanks to our Realtor and Rental Manager, Charissa Joachimowski, for making the purchase and settlement of our vacation rental property a smooth and enjoyable experience.
There were numerous tasks needed to initially prepare and list our home into becoming a weekly seasonal rental.  In addition to Charissa, many Wilgus staff in the Rental, Property Management and Insurance departments were all extremely helpful and professional in assisting and supporting us in this effort.
We also are very satisfied that we decided to have a virtual You-Tube video created of our property. In addition to pictures, the video tour provides a flow throughout our home to give the viewer a better understanding of the layout in determining whether our home will meet their vacation rental needs.
We are very happy to be working with the Wilgus staff and highly recommend their services.

Wilgus Reviews

Shannon from Wilgus Associates provided exceptional service for flood and homeowners insurance when we were buying our dream home. She helped us transfer the existing flood policy and structure the most cost effective homeowner's ins.  Every email was responded to promptly.  Shannon walked us through of every step of the way. Thank you for a great experience! - Karen Hrycna

I sold my house and Kylie was the agent that I used.  Things went extremely smoothly and effortlessly despite Covid 19. She was professional and on top of everything. She was responsive and thorough. She answered questions and resolved issues as they arose. I would definitely use her again. - Paulette Fredericks

We have been renting from Wilgus every summer since 1998.  We originally rented the Shoals until my kids turned 12, then onto S. Pennsylvania Ave using advice from one of the great agents. We were heartbroken when the house sold and once again Wilgus found us the perfect place. This summer will be 6 years at the last house but love the best! Wilgus has always been the best to work with all these years. - Karen Francis
