“I must say, working with Kimberly Boyle was great, and she found our dream house in less than a month! Her time spent and dedication was greatly noticed. After losing our first house, Kimberly told us not to give up. And after looking at four more houses, our 5th house was the one. Thank you for your time and professionalism you showed. If you need a Realtor, Kimberly is the person for the job!”

-The Millers

“So friendly, informative, easy to contact, and available 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to buy a home.”

– Max Clark

Mollie at Signing with Mike

“Mike has been showing us homes for a year and a half. Throughout the process, he was never pushy, always very responsive, there for you very quickly when you wanted to see a home, and extremely knowledgeable. I would refer to Mike over and over again. We found our dream home and are so appreciative of him!”


“Hands Down One Of The Best In The Business! From listing all the way after closing, Kim kept me informed and feeling confident in my choices. she has a great sense of humor too. Very much appreciated when dealing with the stress that comes with home buying/selling.”

-Keli Poppe

“Char is the GREATEST. She worked with us for over a year going through houses until finally the 8th house we put an offer on was finally the one. She is very thorough, and her knowledge is above anyone else I’ve ever known or used. She’s very honest and won’t let you buy something she wouldn’t put her family in!”

“Kim was a fantastic realtor! We gave her the challenge of helping us find a home in Wisconsin while we still lived in Mississippi. She’s an expert in her field and a true professional who understood our military situation. She knew our desire to find a home with some character and worked hard to find those diamonds for us. She was truly honest in her opinions of each home, which we appreciated greatly. I would 100% recommend her as a realtor for anyone looking in Wisconsin or Illinois! Thank you Kim for all you hard work! We love our new home!”

— Briana Platukis

“I had a great experience with Cove Realty and realtor Rachel Lang. We had been looking at houses for multiple months and Rachel was always on the search for us and looking for our best interest. Rachel is a realtor that you trust and rely on.”

— Matt and Mike Craft

Melissa & Trevor Cronin

“Mike really is the best in the business. This was our first home purchase and Mike made the process smooth and worry free. In a market that was cut throat and competitive, Mike made us feel like we were always top of the list. We only had to tour a few homes before he showed us the winner! He worked hard for us to get the home we really wanted and led us every step of the way after our offer was accepted. We have recommended Mike to everyone we know who is looking to purchase a home and we would work with Mike again in a heartbeat.”

— Melissa and Trevor C.

“Rachel was awesome!!! We went into the home buying process knowing it is a crazy market out there and it would take some time to find what we wanted. Rachel was attentive, responsive, and quick to get us to viewings when we were really interested. We only viewed 1 or 2 houses before we found our perfect home! Rachel was so professional, timely, and addressed any questions or concerns immediately when we had them. I’d recommend Rachel to anyone & everyone looking for a great realtor! Thank you, Rachel!”

— Katie Renzoni

Mike was fantastic. Especially after the experience we had with several other realtors previously, Mike stood out as especially responsive, knowledgeable, and flexible through our unusual house search process. I only regret we didn’t find him sooner. Highly recommended!

— Laura and Michael Sutton

Hannah Cox

“This is our second home we purchased with Cove Realty and our first sale of a home with Cove! Mike is dedicated and knowledgeable in his field. He made the process so easy in a crazy market! We would certainly use him again to buy or sell.”

— Hannah Cox

“We started our journey towards purchasing our dream home about a year ago. During that time, Rachel searched with us and for us to find the perfect match. She talked with us about what was most important to us as a family. During the viewing, she walked through each room and asked what we liked and didn’t like. Rachel took note of everything that we said and led us to our house. She checked all the boxes and we wouldn’t be in our new home without her help. Her responsiveness, knowledge, and expertise is above others. Thank you Rachel for finding our forever home!!!”

– Matt and Maranda Moore

“I have worked with a few Realtors before closing on my first house. Kim is most definitely in a completely different league than any other Realtor. If Realtors had stats boards, hers would be maxed out! Very professional, timely, and intelligent. I highly advise working with Kim Boyle (Wisconsin’s Best Realtor!)”

— M. Kemen

“Kim helped us find the perfect home. She worked hard for us and fought for us. She’s also a joy to be around. Highly recommend!”

— Amy Ramirez

“Rachel is extremely patient, attentive, and responsive! She went above and beyond to help ensure we were found the perfect home. We were very comfortable working with her!”

— Ketan Patel

Little late with this review, but wanted to say that Mike was great to work with on our home search. Good guy and would recommend to work with Mike and Cove Realty if you are buying/selling a home.

“I chose Mel as the realtor when I purchased a home in 2021. When I had questions, Mel was honest and provided quick responses to them. She is friendly and easy to communicate with. Melissa is knowledgeable about the real estate market in this area and was able to provide accurate information about the market. I’m happy to say that I plan to use Melissa if we relocate again as she has the right combination of knowledge, experience, and personality to secure us the right deal. Thanks Mel!”

— Nicholas Puchter

“Rachel was amazing. We moved from out of state and looked at so many houses. She was so supportive and helpful during a very challenging real estate market. She was there for us through the entire process and still keeps in touch now that we are in our new home. We cannot say enough good things about Rachel, and HIGHLY recommend her for your real estate needs.”

— Mahachek Family

Char is an amazing realtor. She helped my husband and me buy our first home. She is very prompt in returning calls, texts, and emails. She helped push our bank to make the process go faster and she helped us relax during the more stressful part of the home-buying process. I cannot recommend her enough.

— Jordan and Adam Amundsen

When looking to move to another state, we contacted several realtors through Zillow. Mike Zacker responded immediately, understood our situation, the home type and necessities we were looking for, and our time constraints. He is very knowledgeable about the area and made great recommendations. Mike always stayed in communication with us. He worked hard to find homes meeting our requirements and was able to have them all lined up and ready to view on the one day we were able to travel. Mike is very personable, professional, and makes sure all questions are answered. He made sure every step was in order and we were on track with our purchase timeline. He’s even checked in on us several times after our purchase, answered more questions, and made recommendations on area services we needed. We highly recommend Cove Realty and Mike Zacker.

— Bruce and Jennie Sowers

“Mike was so great to work with through both the buying and selling process. He was very responsive and always made time to take us through any house we asked to look at (which was A LOT of houses…). He was very good about pointing out flaws he found in houses that we may not have noticed right away and never pushed us to put an offer on anything we weren’t 100% sure about. There were even times we were ready to settle for something that we knew wasn’t right for us because we needed a place to go, but Mike encouraged us to keep looking. Although it was very stressful not having a new home lined up right when we sold our condo, we are so glad we listened to Mike and waited for the right one to come along. We are now getting ready to move into a house that is exactly what we were looking for!”

— Abbey and James Terpenning

“Char had to show us over 20 house and go through multiple offer’s and counters before we found our house. She was so awesome and accommodating. She was great with our little ones and our crazy schedules. I don’t know when we’ll be looking again but Char will always be our realtor!”

— Wayne and Shari Howe

“It’s been a long process trying to buy a house. Rachel has been there every step of the way with me, and she knows what she’s doing! Every house that we went through she is inspecting it for things I wouldn’t have even known to look for at the time. She’s inspecting the floors, checking the faucets, making sure we aren’t getting ourselves into something that won’t be worth it in the end. She is the only realtor I would trust to help me through the home buying process again and someone I will be recommending to anyone who is looking for a realtor. She’s very organized and keeps you updated with the whole process, and lays everything out for you with dates to make your life easier! Rachel is a rockstar!!!”

— Erica Wicinski

“Char is undoubtedly the best realtor around. I am amazed at the time and effort she put in for us. She was there for us 24/7, always with a positive attitude. She made us feel like nothing else mattered but finding us our home, and she was determined to not stop until that happened. When we would have given up, she pushed us through and gave us hope. I cannot say enough about how dedicated she is and how hard working. I’m positive she must never sleep, and her energy is astounding! Words can’t express how grateful we are for her. Thank you Char.”

— Jim and Linda Cooklin

“Mike was great throughout the whole process, from getting ready to closing. He knows the Kenosha market so well that pretty much predicted everything ahead of time. He made selling our house so easy and stress-free. We highly recommend him. Thank you, Mike!”

-Ivo B.

“Char was a great help in showing we homes and find the one I really liked. She was very supportive and made closing easy. I highly recommend her.”

— Barbara Reeves

Bob and Brian Hicks

My son was stationed overseas and during his absence, considerable damage was done to his property. I live 6 hours aways from the property so even trying to sell the home was difficult. I was recommended to Cove. After working with Mike, I put my complete faith in him and his company. They were beyond helpful…taking a personal investment into the home, meeting with me on the phone, text and email and providing me options and recommendations. I felt like family. I followed ALL their recommendations and received 3 offers on the first few days that exceeded our asking price. You could have knocked me over with a feather. There were additional complications during the closings…but again, they stepped in and smoothed them out. It was a fantastic experience and, when my son returned, was very appreciative of their genuine passion for helping their clients. Thank you so, so much for you help and your expertise. I am beyond words to express my appreciation!” — Bob and Brian Hicks

Andrew Woods & Erica Wicinski

“An extremely relaxing experience! Rachel was probably the BEST part of the home buying (and selling) experience. Filled with knowledge and isn’t afraid to answer questions when you don’t understand something about the process. Very responsive to messages and an all-around great communicator with her clients. She’ll always be my first choice if I ever move again!”

— Andrew Woods

Mr. & Mrs. Gonzalez

“I have to say that when my wife and I started to look for a home, Rachel helped by sending my wife listings that were active and she wasn’t even working with us officially. We knew that once we found our lender and were ready to find that home, we had to have Rachel on our side and we are very happy we did. She was so helpful and explained everything to us as we were on that journey. We had ups and downs, but she always had the right words of encouragement to help us get through. We finally found our home and are so excited for the days ahead as we begin to make new memories here. Thank you to Rachel Lang, we will be sure to recommend her to anyone searching for their home. Thanks Again Rachel Lang, you Rock!”

— Mr. and Mrs. Gonzalez

“Char is your go to Realtor !! I was relocating from out of state. I didn’t have much time in town to devote to looking at homes and did not want to have to spend my precious money on plane tickets repeatedly to get from Arizona to Wisconsin. Not only did Char manage to work her magic to get me into the homes I had selected to view – but she also set up a list of alternatives for my quick turn around weekend visit. She offered her expertise and experience of the areas, neighborhoods, and spent pretty much an entire weekend with me making sure I could find the perfect home. I did find the perfect home and we closed in record time. Char is dedicated, friendly, attentive, and knows just how important your time is. I cannot thank her enough for making my cross country move a success!”

— Judy Andersen

“When we moved to the Kenosha area, we hired Mike Zacker to assist us with finding a home. We were so impressed with his knowledge and professionalism that when we unexpectedly had to move across the country again, he was the first call we made! We only lived in the house for one year, and thought that a quick turn around sale might be difficult. We were very impressed with the results! We had an accepted offer on our home in 13 days at 100% of our asking price! It wasn’t the only offer we received either! Mike Zacker made the move for us a lot easier. We felt that he really had our best interest at heart. By using Cove Realty, we saved over $4,060 in commission fees over the competition, and felt like we paid full price! The service was top notch and the entire staff at Cove was kind, considerate and helpful. We would recommend Cove Realty to anyone.”

— Greg & Matalie Swartz

We had the best experience working with Mirinda (Mindi) Danielson. It’s been a couple of weeks since we closed on our home, but I wanted to extend our sincere gratitude. Thank you for doing an excellent job of marketing and selling our property and being the one who found our dream home. She was easy-going, patient, extremely attentive and offered sound advice during the entire process. She made what at times was a stressful experience fun and enjoyable for our family. Mindi was responsive and available for us with every detail helping things fall into place perfectly and on time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in the area. A special thank you to Mike at Cove Reality for being there with us for our closing and making a fun day of it!

— Jenny & Jeff

Hands down the best realtor ever!! Kim came highly recommended by my in-laws. She knows her ins and outs with the VA home loans. She’s very professional with an awesome sense of humor and dropped what she was doing at the last minute to show us a potential home. If I could give her 10 stars, I would.

— Dennis Glover

“Thank you Kevin! You’ve gone above and beyond for my daughter and I. I truly appreciate you enabling me to truly have a HOME coming.”

— Aman

“Mike was instrumental to our house buying and selling process – we couldn’t have done it without him! His insight, responsiveness, and determination made all the difference. I would strongly recommend him to my friends and family and look forward to working with him time and again.”
