About Lora Bladow
In 2006, I became a licensed Realtor as a 25-year-old woman in Sauk City, WI, a small town just outside Madison. I’d recently moved there following my college career at UW Madison and some time working in the Madison area. I was surrounded by seasoned Realtors who’d been born and raised in this small community and had been doing business there for decades. Against all odds, I earned my way into the top 20% of the South Central Wisconsin MLS within my first year and stayed there for the next 5 years.
Due to circumstances in the economy beyond my control, I entered the Health Insurance market and took a brief break from real estate. That career choice led to my being recruited to a prestigious job in Wausau. Having been born and raised in Merrill, WI, this was an excellent opportunity to return to my family and my roots. About a year after living in Wausau, I realized how much passion I had for real estate and how much I missed it. So, in 2016, I re-launched my real estate career with RE/MAX Excel and have never looked back.
In September 2017, I was awarded the Central Wisconsin Board of Realtors President’s Award in recognition of my dedicated service to the real estate industry. I have served as a Director on the Board since 2016 and am a Public Relations Committee member as well. Additionally, in 2017, I was honored in an article of The Business News Magazine highlighting my volunteerism in the community to benefit the youth. I’m blessed to have a career that allows me flexibility in my schedule to be a Big Sister to a wonderful young girl through Big Brothers & Sisters of Central Wisconsin. I am also active in the Wausau Noon Optimists, where I serve on several committees, including the annual Essay & Oratorical Contest as well as the Wisconsin Valley Fair’s beer tent.
I take a lot of pride in the Wausau and Merrill area and am proud to represent this area’s real estate Buyers, Sellers & Investors. I also understand that, for most, buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I provide exceptional, personalized service for all my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.
