The Story Of Wissel Homes

LIsa and Alex Wissel ~ Wissel HomesOur story begins in Mt. Hebron High School in Howard County. Two (not so) crazy kids who were friends. Alex was “naturally smitten” by her beauty and heart, Lisa was “intimidated” by his gregarious charm – Or “way too cool” for him at the time. Which perspective is accurate really depends upon who tells the story…

So these kids reconnected again after college; the met volunteering at their local church. In the course of their courtship they discover their shared traits of kindness… And competitiveness. Two characteristics that do go hand in hand.

Before making her leap to Real Estate, Lisa worked at a local bank and in mortgages loans. Her experience there made her realize the value in relationships, and in getting the job done right.

An experienced agent convinced her to join their team at Re/Max 100. It was the first of two excellent teams she worked with before striking out on her own. Those agents’ continued mentoring and friendship over the years is something she will always be grateful for.

Building A New Team

Lisa would go on to manage the Re/Max 100 office (One of the top offices Nationally) in just a few years. Well respected, her industry reputation is one of fairness, compassion, diligence and expertise. Lisa is an active member of the local Howard County Association of Realtors (HCAR) and several local charities and organizations.

Lisa was recently honored by her peers with the 2017 Howard County Realtor of the Year award.

Alex joined Lisa in 2016. After growing tired of the financial world, he wanted to enjoy what he did as much as enjoying who he worked with.

He brings with him a background in investments, equities, mortgages, and insurance. Alex’s degree from the Maryland Institute of Art is better served by offering clients ideas on their homes. Alex is a big picture guy and never short on ideas. Outside of real estate you may find Alex in a competitive Plein air painting contest. Our local ‘Paint it! EC’ is one such event in Old Ellicott City.

We are delighted by our two boys and appreciate the flexibility real estate gives us in staying active in their young lives.

Wissel Homes ~ Experience Matters

Competitive kindness is something that we wish there was more of. You can fight the good fight – and win. We do it by competing on behalf of our clients every day. And we do it with experience, competitiveness, attention to detail, and professionalism. When you win, we win. No-one always come out on top. But our clients recognize that as their advisors we will find a solution. We have your best interests at heart.

It’s true that it is good business, to do good business. We have built our business mainly through referrals because our clients have recognized the value of a knowledgeable partner.

Experience matters. We hope you’ll give us the chance to compete on your behalf.
