In late 1999 my wife Jennifer and I moved to Milwaukee so that she could attend UW Milwaukee. I had just finished a four year stint in the Marine Corps and had never been to Milwaukee. I felt right at home. Jennifer and I and our two daughters Hope & Sydney currently reside in Cedarburg Wi and have since 2002. I started investing in the Riverwest area of Milwaukee in 2003. Since that time I have developed a huge fondness for the neighborhood and its diverse group of residents.
I became a licensed Realtor in Spring of 2013 and it was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. By Spring of 2014 I had obtained my Brokers license and Riverwest Realty Milwaukee was born. Since that time I have personally helped over 500 buyers and sellers achieve their goals of buying or selling their home. I continue to meet new people and make new friends every day in this business and for that reason, more than 50% of my business is repeat and referral. I could not be more thankful for that.
If you are thinking about buying or selling a home in the Greater Milwaukee area please give me a call. I would be happy to meet up for a cup of coffee, discuss the process and see if we are a fit!
Lance and his team at Riverwest Realty were great to work with as I bought and sold my first house over the last few years. Lance kept everything simple and really went above and beyond to help sell my house. He brought a buyer in on the first day and got my house sold faster than I could have hoped for. If you're buying or selling in Riverwest I can't recommend Lance and Riverwest Realty enough.
I had a great experience working with Riverwest Realty, and specifically Mike Vieyra. Mike is personable, responsive, and extremely knowledgeable about all steps of the process. It was my first time purchasing a home, and Mike took the time to make sure I understood everything completely, gave me advice/tips, and was a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.
Mike was excellent to work with. I'm an out of state investor and I came across Mike by doing a quick Google search of top rated real estate agents in the area. I sent a blind email through River West Realty's web site and Mike responded. It was my first contact with an agent in Milwaukee (I had been looking in other states as well) but Mike was easy to work with and on the same page as me. He made buying a property out of state as easy as I could hope for. His communication was excellent and his willingness to work with me was amazing. If I buy another property in the area, I will definitely go to Mike directly. Thanks for your help!
Lance is professional, methodic, transparent and quite the strategist. After Lance met us at our house, he did his homework and met for consultation of where he felt our house fit in the market and his plan to get the most eyes on house. His strategy for our house gave us the confidence he was looking out for our best interest, he was straight forward on his options. You can tell that he really enjoys the process of selling home. When it came to getting offers, he worked the offers and was able to get us a great deal. Even through the inspection amendment process he was able to work the deal to meet our goals. He was reassuring even when our nervousness was getting the best of us. He is quick to respond to text, calls or emails, even after the sell was complete and I had something come up he was quick to help. If you're thinking of selling, do yourself a favor and call Lance, you will not regret it.
We couldn't have been happier with the representation we received from Riverwest Realty when we sold our house. We had met with Lance a year in advance to get an idea about the possible market value and to ask about what we might want to do to put our house in the best shape for selling. We didn't know when we might want to sell and Lance was quite happy to meet with us well in advance of selling without him pressuring us at all to do it immediately. When we had a question whether or not to replace something in the meantime he was very happy to give us his professional advice. He sent a photographer to take photos of our place once we decided to move and his support staff was great. He always answered our calls personally when we called him. We trusted him about the timing of listing our house just right before seeking appointments for showings. He was able to anticipate just when the house would sell. He priced the house just right, in my opinion, to ultimately get the best price in the market. We got more than we asked for.

Lance helped us find our home and then when we had to leave he helped us to sell it. I highly recommend Lance if you are buying or selling a home in the Milwaukee area! He knows the Milwaukee housing market extremely well, he is an excellent negotiator, and he’s approachable and reassuring. He got us great deals in both the purchase and sale of our Milwaukee home. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

I needed to sell my condo, so I gave Riverwest Realty a call. I’m very glad I did. Lance was personable, knowledgeable, and just a good guy. I told him what I needed and he walked me through the process, as well as provided sound counsel. His experience was evident immediately. It was a pleasure working with Lance. Honestly, it was fun. My only regret is that I didn’t call earlier.

Lance and the Riverwest Realty made buying our first home so easy! We were apprehensive going into the process because of the market, but Lance made everything feel less complicated. He was never pushy or condescending; he was supportive and gave helpful advice on how to make our offers competitive. Lance is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. His recommendations and references for other home-related services (e.g., the inspector) were so helpful!
I can’t thank Lance and his team enough!

Lance helped me purchase a single family home. During this crazy housing market time, he was patient and supportive. After an accepted offer, he went above and beyond and continued to connect with the seller to make sure all my questions were answered.
