REAL PEOPLE, REAL EXPERIENCES, REAL ESTATE
Buying a house isn’t just about finding your home, it’s about becoming a part of a community. Property Shoppe Realty owners, Shannyn Pinkert and Anthony Janicki, have brought that idea not only into their work as REALTORS®, but also their team environment as brokers.
With seven other agents on their team, Pinkert and Janicki are committed to the growth, culture, and community they foster at Property Shoppe.
Pinkert originally opened Property Shoppe Realty in 2017, but says the most growth happened after Anthony joined her as a co-owner in 2020. Since then, Property Shoppe has grown from three agents to their now nine-agent team, and they’re not planning on slowing down.
There are many reasons for their steady growth, but a huge reason is the informative and supportive culture they have created around their office. In fact, Pinkert and Janicki offer a very hands-on training program for new agents.
“One of the reasons for our growth is that we offer a mentorship piece that a lot of agents desire as they start their career in real estate,” Pinkert said. “Anthony and I will take new agents under our mentorship for about six months where they will train and shadow us. This way they can get hands-on experience from working directly with us.”
Successes are always celebrated at Property Shoppe and there’s always someone to turn to if you need advice. One of the firm’s newest agents, Casey Levrich, decided to get her real estate license while working as a full-time social worker. Levrich had first-hand experience under their mentorship.
“I think Property Shoppe is so unique from any other brokerage,” Levrich said. “They just do things differently, they market modernly and they’re very community-based.”
Even experienced agents at the firm say they continue to learn new skills under the guidance of Pinkert and Janicki. Jenna Hazelton, who became a licensed realtor in 2018 and joined Property Shoppe in 2020, explains how she continues to learn in different way.
“We do a lot of educational training. Shannyn and Anthony are very good at what they do,” Hazelton said. “As my brokers, I’m constantly chasing them. They are who I want to be. It fits perfectly because you have to have people who match where you are, but you also need to have people in your life who are going to help you level up. And they help me level up.”
Since Property Shoppe Realty is a local firm, they focus their office culture on giving back to the community as much as they can. The Property Shoppe Team is involved with the local Chamber of Commerce, the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association, and the Realtor’s Association of Northwestern Wisconsin. Throughout the year, they do a variety of activities to stay active in the community including a “Spring Into Local” campaign to highlight local businesses on social media, a Family Fun Day at a local apple orchard, the annual CVHBA Home & Garden Show and numerous parades around the Chippewa Valley.
“I love real estate, I love my job, and I love our office environment,” Pinkert said. “I want agents to come to the office to collaborate together, learn from each other’s experiences and push each other to become stronger.”
As Property Shoppe continues to expand, their commitment to their team and the community will only increase. Their focus will remain true; to provide you with professional, honest, and responsible real estate services.
