Defining the most important characteristics is tough when looking for the perfect person to sell your property or find your next one. Accolades litter professionals’ websites, while complex accreditations form the basis of many WI realtors’ reputations.

Carrie Powell, recently named as the Top Realtor in Wisconsin for 2024 and a Realtor at Century 21 Ace Realty, sheds some light on where to start: “Interview multiple agents to find the one that best suits you,” she begins. “Then, get referrals from others who have bought and sold recently. Finally, search for an agent looking out for your best interest, including your short and long-term real estate goals.”

It’s easier to look for the characteristics, methods, and differences that stand out in a WI realtor than to trawl through endless bios. Carrie Powell has made a 12-plus-year career by mastering the real estate process, inspired by over 25 years of sales and marketing experience. Now, she identifies the unique attributes that have made her a top individual producer at the leading Century 21 office in WI:

1. Replenishing relationships

If a WI realtor is exceptional at their job, they don’t need to shout about it. The best real estate agent in Wisconsin will always have a new client knocking on their door, calling their phone, or hanging out in their email inbox. While Carrie Powell can create tailored marketing strategies for people’s homes, she doesn’t need to promote herself with the same ferocity.

“Many agents spend their resources on lead generation advertising, from lead companies to third party websites,” she illustrates. “For many agents, that makes up a large portion of their sales for the year. I don’t focus on much prospecting and build my business on referrals from past customers, clients, and trusted business partners.”

Lenders, home inspectors, contractors, cleaning and junk removal services, attorneys, and estate managers feature in the Century 21 Ace Realtor’s network. Due to her comprehensive approach, she becomes acquainted with contacts looking to buy or sell property. She also receives testimonials that provide valuable insights for those searching for an agent.

2. Fostering a fellowship

There are two ways to look at the real estate industry. While many agents on the daily grind might aspire to their nearest competitor’s transaction volume, Carrie Powell takes a different perspective. She doesn’t battle her peers for profits—she uses the opportunity to hone her expertise.

“I don’t look at other realtors as my competition, but instead my teammates, all with the same goal,” she offers. “I often hear other agents tell me I’m sharing too much insight with newcomers and not keeping enough of my knowledge for my real estate business. Instead, sharing information, processes, and skills with others keeps me sharp, motivated, and inspired.”

In addition to being a lifelong resident of the Fox Cities and selling over 450 properties, Carrie Powell is a New Agent Mentor/Coach. In 2024, her daughter Grace Powell, will join Century 21 Ace, and Carrie will become a Team Leader, educating and collaborating on real estate projects while sharing her passion for Real Estate with others. 

3. Lifting a listing

Realtors in WI might brag about the hundreds of listing websites your property will appear on. But if the proof isn’t in the pudding when a potential buyer visits in person, it won’t sell for the optimum price. Carrie Powell is keenly aware of this truth and has found ways to enhance listed properties to ensure they get the offers they deserve.

“It took me a few years to develop the skills to feel confident enough to give a seller constructive criticism about their home,” she confesses. “If I can be upfront about things, it helps us achieve positive results faster.”

Uniquely, the Century 21 Ace Realtor often gets stuck in. Deep cleaning and paint touch-ups are in her wheelhouse, while she leaves more sensitive jobs like decluttering and repairs to professionals. 

She also offers complimentary staging if necessary. It’s part of her broader philosophy, where everyone’s common goal is a timely, positive, low-hassle outcome.

As she spreads her influence throughout her family and the real estate world, Carrie Powell represents a beacon of a bygone era with all the perks of the modern age. Any realtor in WI can claim the most cutting-edge marketing strategies. But one can only find self-assurance, tenacity, and passion in first-hand experience.
