Today we send our warmest MAM thank you to Lisa Loesel of MKE Home Team, with First Weber, Inc. Lisa is a new MAM parent and first-time Springfest sponsor. Welcome to the family, Lisa! We are very grateful for your support!
Tell us about your business! What do you do, and what do you most want people to know about your company?
MKE Home Team, with First Weber, Inc. handles the buying, selling, and relocation needs of Milwaukee area residents. I started MKE Home Team after being in the real estate industry for seven years. My business was growing at a rapid pace and after becoming a mother, I wanted to make sure that my clients always had the best possible experience.
When did you start your business and what drew you to Milwaukee as a location? Do you have any other connections to the East Side?
I have lived on the East Side (Lavender Hill) since 2006 when I purchased my first home, a beautifully restored Victorian built by a German artist in 1894. I love the history and architectural uniqueness that you find in homes on the Ease Side. Looking at these houses never gets old, and it's why I chose to work here.

Do you have a special connection to the Maryland Avenue Montessori School or MPS?
My son started K3 last fall at Maryland. I toured a number of schools, but I knew after our first visit to MAM that this was the school I wanted him to go to.
What is something about your work you are particularly proud of?
I'm a single parent without a second parent or any family nearby. Being a full time parent and a full time business owner is very challenging. I'm constantly switching between these two roles. Despite making sure my son is a priority and gets as much of my time as he needs, I continue to substantially grow my business each year. Last year MKE Home Team helped over 50 families buy or sell homes.
Why did you choose to sponsor Maryland Avenue Montessori School's Springfest?
This is our first year at Maryland, and I would love to get more involved with school activities and continue to meet more parents. Right now my schedule doesn't allow for as much time commitment as I would like, but I thought sponsoring Springfest would be a fun way to get a little more involved.
