Aaron Brunette

After spending 10 years in the mining industry I thought that there has to be a better way to build a brighter future for myself and my family. I started out in a small family owned company in 2003 and after a few frustrating months without my usual weekly paychecks my first closing happened. Since then I have consistently averaged 100 transactions per year! Many were skeptical when I started. Let’s face it, I have tattoos, ride a Harley and do not dress like the stereotypical real estate agent. I will always tell you my opinion and sometimes it is brutally honest. Maybe this is what people want to hear and see in a Realtor®. You be the judge. Look at the properties I have listed, do a custom search or call me and tell me what you are looking for.

Rhea Brunette

Originally from Janesville, WI, I relocated to Chippewa Falls in 2012 for six years. We recently made the move to Chetek, WI which allows me to expand my business further north to Rice Lake area. I have come to find that this area of Wisconsin is one of the most beautiful, and enjoy the local festivals, scenery, and outdoor activities. Whether we’re act a local festival, or on a new camping adventure, family is our priority. When we’re not spending time with our children, I enjoy reading, walking, seeing the latest movie, spending time with friends, outdoor activities, and motorcycle riding.

My first taste of real estate was through my Grandfather, who was a Realtor® for 25 years. I can remember going on showings with him as a child, making my way through the houses was always magical to me. It felt like an adventure! I have been in customer service for almost 25 years. My first job was at age 15, and I have continued to provide timely, friendly, and proactive service ever since! I have worked since 2015 as Aaron Brunette’s Licensed Assistant. I have had the privilege to learn from one of the Top Producing Realtors® in the area, and we have continued his success as The Brunette Synergy Group.

Jose Garcia

Originally from Dallas, Texas, I moved to Wisconsin in 2009. Within a year we bought our first house. Having experience in the building trades, we were able to fix up our starter home, build equity and purchase another home for our family. Buying multiple homes and now one in Mexico has really sparked my interest in real estate and the process of turning houses into homes.

Seeing a growth in the Hispanic community and my interest in real estate made me aware of the need for a native Spanish speaking agent. As a first generation US American, my goal is to help the Spanish-speaking community in the Chippewa Valley achieve home ownership.
