Cleo Messner

Associate Broker / REALTOR®

BUYING or SELLING is one of the biggest decisions that you’ll ever make. Your home moving experience is important to me. You are not just a number, but hopefully a lifetime friend and repeat client/customer. I’m here to help you sort out your needs, and to make it an enjoyable experience. Part of sorting out your needs is helping you decide if this is the right thing for you to do. Maybe now is the best time. Maybe now is not the time for you to buy or sell a property.

“Helping You Make The Right Decisions” has been my motto for many years. As a Certified Residential Specialist, I know that buying and/or selling is a complicated decision, and it also should “Feel Right.” My job is to work with you through the process to first decide if a move is “Right” for you. Then when you decide it is, we work through the process together, to make it as smooth as possible. My business is built from repeat clients and past customers, either selling and/or buying their home, or referring clients and customers to me. Whether you have sold and purchased many homes, are a new transferee to our area, or a first time buyer, I am here for You. My primary market is Sheboygan County, along with southern Manitowoc County.

My earlier years in real estate were spent as a seminar junkie. I went to every class and seminar that I could, and still do, along with many YouTube/Facebook Podcasts and Webinars – like a sponge soaking up the knowledge.

I’m here to share…“Helping You Make The Right Decisions.”

My early childhood years were spent in Auburndale, Wisconsin. Growing up on a dairy farm milking cows before and after school, working in the garden and fields, raising rabbits, cats, dogs, and chickens, breaking ponies and riding horses. It was an invaluable experience that has given me a fun, work ethic that I will be forever grateful for. My vast background includes being on a gymnastics team, in a marching band, concert band, choir, a cheerleader and taking parts in several plays.  I am the second youngest of 9 children. My challenged little brother, 2 of my oldest brothers, along with my parents are deceased.  I have about 35 nieces and nephews, about 40 greats and 20-some great greats.

Jerry, my husband and I met in Sheboygan. Being married forever, we have adult children, Melissa, Ryan, and Jackson. Jerry, is retired from Kohler Co. Over the years he has been a musician with The Buffalo Joe Band, Spare Time, Pop Music, Shock & The Absorbers, and Alive ‘n Pickin’ Bluegrass Band. His newest adventure is “Born In a Barn,” very danceable, playing Original tunes, Covers, Rock, Pop, and Blues.

My earlier adult years were spent working in restaurants. I may know you from King’s Food Host, Geno’s, Nino’s, A&W, Rupp’s Lodge, Rupp’s at Riverdale or The Green Room Pub, which was our “Family Owned Business”  2005-2011.

Client Reviews

“Cleo, I could not have been more pleased with the process of selling the house. You took it upon yourself, you worked it, you promoted it, you opened the house for clients and had great suggestions on what to improve to help market it. In the end, you made it so very simple! All instructions were clear, the documentation came and went with no issues. THANK YOU!!”

“I’ve worked on and off with Cleo over the last 15 years and she’s guided me carefully in the purchase of rental properties and, now after my retirement, she’s professionally helped me to sell the properties in a quick and efficient manner! Cleo is far and away the finest Real Estate Professional I’ve had the pleasure to work with. She has my top recommendation.”

“When we were selling, you knew it was difficult for me and you were a rock! A great help in so many ways. I appreciate all you did! Thank you again and I hope all is well for you in the new year.”

“Cleo is a hands on realtor. She not only told us straight out what we needed to do in order to sell our house, she also explained how to find our dream home and we found it! All with in about 2-3 weeks!”

“Working with Cleo to sell our home and purchase our new home was a terrific experience. Cleo’s vast knowledge of the market helped us to properly price our old home to move, and her tips for staging and showings made a big difference as well. Buying our new home couldn’t have been easier, as Cleo deftly navigated each step in the purchase process, leaving us to focus on finding the perfect house for our family. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a positive real estate experience.”

“Cleo was awesome! She was very understanding of my concerns. I felt she really cared about my feelings. My transaction went better than expected!”

“Cleo’s schedule was flexible when making appointments for showings, and her years of experience allowed her to offer us a different perspective when looking at homes. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with!”

“Cleo worked hard at selling my home. She held several open houses and kept me involved as I had asked. She also sent me weekly market updates which I found helpful in making sure I had the right price for my home.”

“Cleo helped us prioritize what we needed to do to get our house ready to sell. She is knowledgeable, direct, and easy to work with. Our house sold quickly and she helped us get through a pretty quirky  closing process when events outside of our control delayed the closing date.”
