Selling During COVID

Can I sell during the pandemic? Is it a good time to sell still?

Despite the pandemic, the real estate market in Central Wisconsin has remained strong. In our current market, the number of homes on the market remains lower than the buyer-demand (as a result of continued low interest rates). This has created an opportune time for sellers to sell their home, land or investment property. 

If you have concerns about the pandemic, we are here to help. Our team will help come up with a strategy to sell your home, while keeping safety and recommended health procedures as a priority. By following best-practices and outlining showing instructions to cooperating agents, we can help facilitate safe practices to all parties touring your home. Our goal is to ensure you feel confident and comfortable during your sale. 

In addition, our team utilizes state-of-the-art marketing technologies, includeding virtual tour Matterport technology, to help provide buyers a 'real life' showing experience from their own home. This can help reduce unnecessary foot-traffic through your home, if that is an area of concern for you. We can help come up with a solution to meet your goal of selling, while staying safe during this time.

Our team is here to help. We recommend connecting with one of our agents to help you discuss the timing of your sale and how we can best support you during your sale. See what our past clients are saying out their sale experience with us during the COVID pandemic. 

We thought selling our home during the pandemic was going to be a real challenge! Austin Solomon and his team made our concerns disappear. They were true professionals from determining the value of our property, developing a thorough marketing plan, scheduling showings and inspections, through the closing. We were kept informed every step of the way. They took the stress out of selling our house. We wish we could have had Austin as our realtor in the search for our new house, but we moved out of the area. Austin goes way beyond what they typical realtor does. We want to thank Austin and Holly for their excellent work in selling our house!

What a great team! Austin and Holly were extremely professional, friendly and thorough. We had two offers on our house in the first 72 hours. We heartily recommend them to everyone. Pete and Krista Mischo, Mosinee

Austin, Dakota and Holly were awesome during our selling and buying process. They were very helpful and responsive with questions we had. We were kept informed as the process moved towards the closing on selling our house and buying a new house. They are very professional and honest and I would definitely recommend and hire again!!
Tracy Rasmussen
Austin was very friendly and professional from the start. He came recommended to us from friends and we were not disappointed. He and his team did a fantastic job helping us sell our home. We would definitely work with the Solomon Group again. Thanks guys!
Chad Witmer
Austin was a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough about this young man. Austin, Hollie, and his team were very efficient, professional, and energetic. They helped us through every process of selling our home. Austin sold our home in 2 days. Countless showings and 8 offers within 2 days. It was truly incredible. This was not in a larger city but a small town where you would not expect this much activity. Austin is a very honest and humble young man that is very good at what he does. I would not hesitate to work with him again. If you want to sell your home fast and at a good price. Give him a call. It’s nice to see that strong work ethic still exists in this day in age. Thank You Austin, Hollie, and Your Entire Team!

We decided to contact Austin Solomon who came highly recommended by several people. Austin walked in and showed us encouragement for all the fine upgrades we had made to our home including our remodeled kitchen. We were pleased with what he thought was a fair price for our home. We had multiple offers, Austin worked through all the details with us. The whole process went smoothly and we couldn’t ask for a better experience! Putting our house up for sale was the hard part, putting our house up for sale with The Solomon Group-Coldwell Banker Action…that was the easy part! Thanks again Austin and Holly for everything you did for us. Glenn & Nancy Barclay

During the crazy real estate market Dakota responded to phone calls, email, and text messages when it was convenient to use and never made us feel rushed. We'd never sold a house before so it was reassuring to be able to ask questions and know if he didn't have the answer he would find out for us. Dakota had concerns about how the bank was handling our mortgage and called us immediately because he was looking out for us. It was a pleasure working with Dakota and we'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
Chelsea Grassl
Dakota made the experience of selling our old home and purchasing our new home a enjoyable and pleasant experience. When issues arise Dakota stepped forth and took control to make sure that things were being done accurate and properly. He made sure that we were getting the best deal for selling our home and purchasing our new home. Dakota is very honest and knowledgeable in the work that he does it was a joy and a pleasure working with him and I would recommend Dakota to anyone who wants to buy or sell.
Francis Kessel
From beginning to end, Joseph was professional, kind, and responsive. His knowledge and experience helped guide us through the quick and successful sale of our home. He helped us set a great price and walked us through each and every offer to allow us to make the best decision for our needs. We will always use Joseph for any of our future real estate needs!
Kari & Brad
Austin & his team were amazing to work with. We looked at a handful of homes and not once did Austin make us feel like we were wasting his time. He was always quick to respond and didn’t pressure us. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell. Thanks again!
Shawn & Melissa Keepers
My experience working with Austin Solomon and his team far exceeded my expectations for a positive outcome when planning to sell my home. I had been living in my home for a little over 30 years following the death of my husband...and I felt it was time for me to move closer to family living out of state. I was concerned i would have a difficult time with the sale as the house was older, having been built in the early 1950’s. After making necessary improvements I contacted Austin & his team who were extremely supportive & encouraging. They were professional & skilled at marketing beyond my expectations...yielding immediate positive responses culminating in the successful sale of my home in a manner of days. This experience with Austin & his team enabled this transition to be relatively painless for me & has left me with a huge measure of gratitude.
Char Carroll
Austin is unbelievable, Four days after putting the house on the market, it was sold for over asking price. We had already moved out of state. All we had to do was sign and mail back a few forms. Austin took care of everything else. It was a wonderful experience
Grace Quarles
Austin and his team were fantastic. He always was responsive to all of our needs and did a fantastic job of getting our home sold fast and above asking! I would recommend him to anyone!
Zach & Callie Weigel
We have had more, recent, experiences with Austin and team than we ever planned! But, once again, the needs were met and expectations exceeded! Hopefully we are now in our forever home. Hope to keep this team active and will recommend them to all!!!
Tammy & Mike Ellis
We had a great experience with Allison Karlen for both selling our old and buying our new home! Thank you Allison!!
Fred Borntreger
Austin and his team are professional, timely and conscientious. As a first time home seller, they walked me through the entire process and promptly addressed questions I had. Highly recommend Austin and his team!
Lynette Trapp
We have used Austin for 2 home sales and 2 home purchases in the last 3 years! Every experience was filled with pure professionalism, knowledge, and attention to detail. Austin and his team will stay on top of every situation whether you are buying or selling. The knowledge and information he shares with the community through his podcasts and social media presence is one you would expect in larger markets. Work with him and his team and you'll be sure to get 1000 thumbs up emojis. If you need to buy or sell Austin and his team are the ones to trust.
Tim Dively
Austin met with me two months before I was ready to list and he and his team helped me through the process to make sure everything was in order for a successful listing and quick sale. He was extremely professional and very responsive. I received an above asking price within the first two days of listing.
Tonya Darner
Austin helped us once again sell a real estate property. This is the third time we have worked with him. Austin is very professional, responsive and definately does an all around great job. I would highly recommend him for your buying or selling needs.
Michelle Walters
I have turned to Austin at least 3 times in the past few years and have never been disappointed. His high level of communication through email, text or phone communication is #1 compared to others I have worked with. Selling a property is a stressful time obviously.....but he makes sure that you know all that is going on between any parties during the transaction periods....and that always gave me a piece of mind. In addition, he has a partner Holly that came aboard more recently and I can't say enough great things about her as well. Highly recommend Austin and his team to help you!!
Michelle Miller
The Solomon group was very helpful and knowledgeable with the buying and selling process. It was a great experience all around! Thank you!!!
Vanessa F.
Austin and company did a great job of helping us to sell our home. He priced it right and in accordance with our needs. Needless to say our house was on the market for only 2 days. They know the area very well and are very pleasant to work with. Thanks again, guys!
Nick & Gia
Austin out performed our expectations. We needed solid representation and Austin and the group delivered. Fast, professional and reliable. As an out of state seller, a thorough understanding of the process, strong communication and close coordination were imperative. From listing to close, we were in good and professional hands.
Sandy Benning
The Solomon Group was a great choice in finding a home and selling our own. They were patient and kind throughout the process as we carefully checked out houses in several neighborhoods.
Austin made the process of selling our house so easy. He communicated with us every step of the way, always keeping us in the loop on the next step. Austin listened to our requests and made everything happen! He was knowledgeable and receptive and very timely with communication as well as with showing us homes. When we do buy again in the near future, we will absolutely be going with Austin!
Stacy & Steve
Austin and Holly were very helpful and professional in all aspects of the listing and sale of the house. They answered and explained everything in detail when asked. A pleasure to do business with.
Ed Miller
My uncle passed away and Austin assisted our family with the sale of my uncle’s home. Here is a review from my other uncle, who was the estate’s personal representative: Austin and his sister, Holly, did a terrific job selling my house. It only took one day after the house was listed. Both are very professional and were always able to answer all my questions. Holly did a super job with pictures and video. They kept me well informed as the sale developed. I would strongly recommend their services to anyone planning to purchase or sell their property. It was a pleasure working with the Solomon Group at Coldwell Banker. 
Dan Haney
We love working with Austin and the Solomon Group. Everyone is professional and extremely competent. Austin is fun and excited. His charm and knowledge are incomparable. He answers phone calls and text messages. The whole group is very accessible. Holly is a wealth of information as well. I will work with Austin and The Solomon Group exclusively for all of my real estate needs. It has truly been a pleasure. There is no need to hesitate in calling them. You will be very happy you did!
Wanda Oleson
Working with the Solomon Group, Austin & Holly was a Great experience, they were both very helpful and knowledgeable, Fast responses to any questions we had and made our experience with our home sale flawless. Thank you both.
Kelly & Andy
Austin and Holly did a great job from start to finish. The photos and virtual tour that Holly put together presented the house well which resulted in a ton of interest and multiple offers. They were very responsive and helped us through the process with no hiccups. But beware of Austin and his “Closing Selfie”, joking aside they are amazing to work with. I have already directed family Austin’s way and feel confident he will do an amazing job for them too.
Michelle & Brendan
Austin and Holly did a great job from beginning to end in the selling of my home. I really appreciated their honest answers to my questions. It was very evident that Austin had done his homework and knew how to navigate the existing market. The photos and virtual tour that Holly put together presented the house very well which resulted in a lot of interest, multiple offers, and the final sale of my home. They were very responsive and helped me through the process with no issues. I'm already recommending Austin to my family and friends.
Jim G.
The Solomon Group had exceeded all my expectations. I was relocating from Wyoming to Wausau, and Austin and his team made my experience stress free. When the housing market was very competitive, Austin’s expertise allowed me to secure a home without the horror stories I had heard from others. I closed on time, and the transition was smooth. Fast forward to only five months after closing on my new house, and I had to sell AGAIN and fast. Austin and his team came rushing to my needs. I didn’t know when a good time to put the house on the market was, and Austin explained (the sooner, the better). Again, his expertise was spot on, and I had an offer within 24 hours and others that came in. Holly assisted Austin throughout the selling process and was more than professional, personable, and pleasant. The virtual tour and pictures she put together for the sale really made the house look great! I also thanked her for talking me off a ledge a few times. I recommend the Solomon Group for any real estate transaction. You won’t regret it! Thank you Solomon Group!
Working with Austin and Holly from The Solomon Group at Colwell Banker Action was a very easy way to list and sell my home. They knew the appropriate sales price with the going market. They took top notch photos and were very energetic in showing the house to many interested clients. They talked me through the offers I received and within 2 days of showing, my house was sold. If I am ever in need of buying or selling a house again, I would not hesitate to go through them again.
Tony Steinman
Cody was excellent! If he didn’t know the answer to a question he was honest about it and quickly got back to you with correct answer. The entire team at the Solomon group handled everything professionally and with respect, and all were very knowledgeable. Overall, Cody was one of the best realtors that we have ever dealt with throughout our many moves. He frequently went above and beyond what was expected! We highly recommend Cody and the Solomon group!
Tim & Carleen
Austin and group did a great job listing our home for sale. Austin came to us with a good listing price and the group did a wonderful job advertising the home. The photos came out great and the virtual tour was really cool. The whole process was seamless and we were kept updated throughout the whole process. Thank you!
Rocky Vang
We worked with Austin to get an estimate of our home value. He was at our house within 24 hours of our first contact. He has a wealth of knowledge for the local real estate market, came to us very well prepared, talked us through the whole process and made us feel very comfortable. Austin was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to list their home!
Scott Z.
I dreaded going through the process of selling my home, but Austin and Holly managed every detail so well that I couldn’t be more pleased with how it went. The highest of marks for honesty, communication and what matters…results. I would and will recommend the Solomon Group for anyone looking to sell their home.

We had the pleasure of working with Austin and his team to both buy and sell a home in the Wausau area. Their service is amazing. Austin is very knowledgeable of the market and a true, easy-going partner committed to guiding you through the entire process. I am always impressed with how accessible and responsive he is. He and his team are also leaders in leveraging state-of-the-art communications and document platforms to make the process easier. I highly recommend Austin and his team if you are buying or selling in the Wausau, WI area!
Brad Silvey
Austin Soloman & his group are fantastic to work with. They are very knowledgeable when it comes to the housing market & will get the job done when it comes to selling your house. This is our 2nd time using Austin & his team & each time they have delivered amazing results with a speedy time frame of putting the house up for sale to closing on the house. Plus they are a great crew to work with & make the whole process fun & stress free. Thanks Austin for a sale well done!
Kristi Busse
Austin did a wonderful job of helping us prepare my in-laws home for sale. He walked through the entire house with us and offered suggestions on what should be fixed or updated and what was not Worth the cost of improving. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market and current trends. I would definitely recommend Austin to anyone wanting to sell a home!
Lee Shipway
Austin and Holly were the two agents assisting us with the sale of my brother's house. Both were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and gave us a great listing on the house. If we had the need for a realtor in Wausau area, we would definitely use their group again!! Thank you so much for all your help!!
Terri Hagmann
Austin was our realtor four years ago and he made our first buying experience a positive one. When we decided to sell our home, naturally he was our number one choice in listing agents. His team made our selling experience just as seamless. We moved everything out of our home, handed over the keys to him and left the state. Austin and his team did such a great job with marketing, showing and wrapping up the home sale while we were away. A trusted and proven amazing group of professionals!
Mai Xiong
Holly Hettinga and the Solomon Group were just fantastic. Everything from timely communications, attention to detail and responsiveness were top notch. We would highly recommend Holly and will absolutely use her services again.
Keith & Susan Imm

Their expertise and thoughtful personalities were greatly appreciated and helped the sale of our home go smoothly. We recommend the Solomon Group!

Austin was very professional and helped us quickly sell our home. He made recommendations for getting our house in order for selling and took care of finding someone to clear a few downed trees in the back yard a day before closing. His team did an outstanding job helping us through the process and we were able to get more than expected out of the sale.
Eric Springer
Many thanks to Austin and Holly for helping me to sell my home after 11 days on the market! When it came time to sell my house, a family member recommended Austin because of his widespread marketing approach and his reputation, and that he had helped them to find their home. I soon met with Austin and Holly. They were both very personable and professional and I felt I was in good hands. We agreed on a listing price, they took great photos, and listed. They kept in good communication with me throughout the process of showings and negotiations and were always quick to respond to calls and texts. Overall it was a very good experience with a very satisfactory outcome.
Jeannine B.
Holly and Austin were very helpful and understanding while working with a first time homeseller such as myself. The rough spots in the process were smoothed out and we were able to complete the home sale with everyone happy at the closing. Thanks again to the staff at Caldwell Banker.
Gary Poklinkoski
Holly worked with me on selling my property and she was excellent to work with. Very professional and courteous. Would highly recommend this group for buying and selling.
Deb Thurs
When I was going to be putting my house up for sale, the first thing I did was look to see who the #1 realtor that was in the area. The Austin Solomon group thru Coldwell Banker came up. So I called Austin and he came out the very next day. Austin along side his sister Holly were even better than expected! Those 2 did an amazing job with everything from start to finish in selling my house. It was definitely a great experience working with them. I will not hesitate to go with them in the future and neither should anyone else thinking about selling their house.
John M.

If you are looking to buy or sell a property I would highly recommend the Solomon Group with Coldwell Banker. I had the pleasure of working with Austin and Holly. The communication during the process of selling my dads house was top notch. They were both very knowledgeable and upfront about what offer was the best one to accept. They are both true professionals and amazing people.
