Worked hard on this. ~ Pete Roemer, Manitowish Waters
It was very important to us to have someone willing to take adequate precautions to protect us and visitors to the home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tom listened to our concerns and helped create a plan we were all comfortable with.
Tom knows the local market and was a good resource on all aspects of the sale including pricing.
The house sold in 2 days for full ask. Tom was a great partner in this sale from start to finish! I highly recommend working with Thom Thiessen. ~ John, Winchester, WI
With this purchase I need an broker that had an agent that understood the specifics of the area I was interested in purchasing a vacation home. I did several web searches trying to understand who was best suited for this area. I came across Tom Thiessen and found out he actually lived in the area I was looking to buy. I sent him and several others an email. He responded quickly and we set up a meeting. He was super knowledgeable in the Chain of lakes I was interested. He also knew many of the property owners, the history and he knew the ins and outs of zoning, etc. I knew I had found the agent I was looking for!
We could not have asked for a better agent than Tom Thiessen for this purchase. He aced every portion of the process. I dont trust people easily, however I felt like Tom had my back from the minute we met, and helped us find what we wanted, and his knowledge gave us the confidence we needed to make the best decision. Great experience because of Tom, We cant thank him enough!! ~ Bob & Dawn S. Ironwood, MI
Very easy to work with!!
Toms knowledge of the local area is fantastic. And his background in construction and zoning was especially nice to have for our many questions regarding our purchase.
Very smooth transaction in all aspects, almost as simple as a Handshake agreement
Excellent all around
Very nice being treated like friends and members of the community from the moment we first spoke. ~ Doug and Sue DeVan, Orange City, Florida
This is the second property that I purchased through Tom. He was a pleasure to deal with in every aspect of the purchase. Tom was very approachable when I had questions or concerns regarding the property. Tom went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied from start to finish. He even met me after closing to hand deliver the keys to my new place, since I was unable to attend the closing. I look forward to working with him again in the future. I would recommend Tom Thiessen to anyone in the Vilas County area. Two thumbs up!! ~ Tyler Hillen. Menasha, Wisconsin
We saw Tom's signs on property near our cabin and felt that he would already by familiar with the area and would therefore be able to promote our lake and our cabin.
Tom was able to get For Sale signs up before the critical 4th of July weekend despite our signing a contract with Century 21 only days before that. His extra effort produced an offer to purchase within a week! We were pleasantly surprised receiving an offer so quickly after seeing other properties lingering for months and even years.
Tom's background in surveying and zoning made his expertise invaluable. We were traveling at the time of the offer and Tom's patience in contacting us and keeping us informed was really appreciated.
He went well beyond the call of duty working weekends to make the property attractive and to quickly satisfy requests from the buyers.
We relied on Tom's knowledge of the real estate situation in the northwoods as well as on his background as surveyor and felt every piece of advice he gave us was spot-on. What could have been a nerve-wracking situation with our traveling during much of the negotiations, turned into a pleasant experience due to Tom's efforts.
Overall, we were thrilled working with Tom and benefiting from his experience. It was way beyond our expectations that the sale went through so quickly and easily. ~ Elizabeth and Franz Himpsel, Madison, WI
Tom and the title company did an excellent job at closing with a problem that came up at the last minute. I believe without them we may not have closed. ~ Paul Lampert in Beaver Dam, WI
I approached Century 21 and specifically Tom to help me find a home in Manitowish Waters and also sell my other home in Park Falls.
Tom handle the sale of my home perfectly. He was invaluable in helping get a FEMA flood plain inclusion remedied and our lot removed from the flood plain notice.
Knows the area very well and the in and outs of living in the north woods including contact with local surveyors, contractors, zoning.... ~ Mike McKeon, Manitowish Waters, Wi
I took a chance and contacted a local Century 21 office in the area I was looking for a home. I was looking for someone who knew the area, the Manitowish chain of lakes and had some knowledge of the local regulations.
I could not have found a better agent.
Tom's experience with the area and all the local zoning/building regulations was exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks Tom and Century 21 Manitowish Waters,
Mike McKeon ~ Mike McKeon, Manitowish Waters
Was always available and easy to contact...and followed up (which was not what we experienced with other realtors.
Tom had to work with a listing agent, which at times led to he said, she said....nothing he could control, but was frustrating at times on this end. ~ M. Freck Stoughton, wi.
Tom did a great job and was a joy to work with. He is very knowledgeable and has a great understanding of the market. I would highly recommend him. ~ Scott Streightiff Lake Bluff, IL

very responsive and helpful
would recommend highly ~ Todd, Lac du Flambeau
Tom did a great job for us! He was prompt, professional and honest. We would recommend him to anyone. ~ Amanda and Andrew Combs
My wife and I purchased a home from Tom and also sold a property with Tom. He is connected to the community and knows so much about the rules of the community. This is what we liked. When buying you need to know what restrictions there are for realistic remodeling. His knowledge is building inspections as well as local zoning is a must for any buyer.
He is honest and doesn't "sugar coat" are minimize defects of a property in order to make a sale. He give you his honest opinion even if you don't want to hear it.
We really felt that he is working for us and with us.
We will for sure use Tom again. ~ Tom and Katherine Stengele
In addition to having the listing for the property we were interested in, after meeting with Tom we realized that he had all the local knowledge that was important to us. I have dealt with other realtors in the area in the past. Tom Thiessen is by far the best in terms of his attentiveness, understanding the area, and going the extra mile to make sure our needs were met. This was a small property listing for Tom, but he made us feel like it was a million dollar deal in terms of his helpfulness and dedication.
It was a pleasure doing business with Tom. He is just an all around nice guy.
I understand that he represents the seller, but seeing the extra effort that he personally put in to help us was greatly appreciated.
I hope he is available if we ever have a need to sell or buy anything in the future.
There is not another realtor in the Manitowish Waters area that I have worked with that is as knowledgeable of the area and respectful to deal with as Tom. ~ Jeff and Sue Boulden, Norway, MI
Tom did a good job for us ~ mike sluzinski
