great is the number of years each of us has been here, our individual personalities and our dedication to our customers.“ The bar is spontaneous with lively conversation and excellent drinks. The dining is intimate, formal and sincerely friendly. Eddie Martini’s is one of those places known as one of Milwaukee’s iconic restaurants for steaks, chops and seafood. But for those of us who are regulars, we simply think, “that’s my Eddie’s.”

The Face of LAKE COUNTRY REAL ESTATE Pat Bolger Realty Group Pat Bolger Real estate entrepreneur Pat Bolger believes in a different way of selling real estate, and he’s forging his own path to realize it. As one of Lake Country’s top representatives of lake homes and luxury properties, Bolger has demonstrated that he can translate the lessons he’s learned after nearly thirty years in real estate and automotive sales into lucrative home sales. Looking around at the other agencies in Lake Country, Bolger noticed that they were too traditional, lacking an innovative strategy for taking command of the current market for the benefits of their clients. Utilizing cutting-edge marketing strategies has proven successful for Pat. Born and raised in the Lake Country area, Bolger has a history here that not many other agents can claim. His knowledge of and passion for this distinctive region of southeastern Wisconsin is second-to-none, ensuring his clients not only the best service, but the best price for their home. In January of 2014, Bolger, armed with this common-sense strategy, established the Pat Bolger Realty Group and set up shop in Oconomowoc. Since then, he has made his new company’s presence known by becoming the fastest growing company in Lake Country and continuing his track record of representing high-end homes. 1061 Summit Ave. Oconomowoc 262-354-8090 patbolgerhomes.com
