Anne has been such an asset from beginning to end.
It was such a pleasure to work with Anne and Firefly! Anne was recommended to us from friends, and working with her has made the home-buying process less intimidating, less stressful, and more enjoyable. Anne has been such an asset from beginning to end. As first-time homebuyers, we came to Anne with a general idea of what we were looking for in a house, but unsure of how to get to the finish line. Anne guided us through the home-buying process and was there to support us at every step. She was always available to answer questions, whether about the homes we were touring or how to make a competitive offer, and she provided her opinions and expertise when we needed advice. We are sad we will no longer be needing to work with such a wonderful person but we are also unbelievably grateful for the work she did to help us find a house we love. We would happily recommend her and the Firefly team to anyone looking to buy a house.
Throughout the whole process, Anne was calm, patient, not pushy at all, and seemed genuinely passionate about finding us the perfect home.
We chose Anne to help us find our new home in Wauwatosa. This was our first time purchasing a home, and we really did not know where to start. Anne was super helpful and educated us about the entire process. She kept us up to date on new listings, was very knowledgeable about the current Wauwatosa market, and was extremely prompt in responding to anything we reached out about. During showings, she guided us on what to look for (good or bad). After we received an accepted offer, she made sure we had all of the necessary paperwork filled out and steps completed before closing. Throughout the whole process, Anne was calm, patient, not pushy at all, and seemed genuinely passionate about finding us the perfect home. She helped makes this process so much less stressful, and we’d definitely work with her again in the future!
She provided insights and information that allowed us to make well informed decisions, then helped coordinate and push the deal over the finish line.

We are thrilled with our purchase and our buying experience with Anne.

Anne was an absolute pleasure to work with on the purchase of our new Tosa home. She was incredibly patient with us as we worked through the details of our home purchase. She communicated clearly and was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns. She was thorough and supportive of our decisions. Anne was also very helpful in providing us resources/recommendations for contractors after we bought the home. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and without hesitation would highly recommend Anne!
Trish is incredibly knowable about Tosa, the market, and the process. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help selling, or buying a home in the area.
We listed our first home in Wauwatosa in the fall with a small real estate agency. In seven weeks, we had less than ten showings and one offer that fell through. We had already bought a new home and moved which only added stress to this process. We found Trish at Firefly and decided to make the switch. Our now vacant home was staged right away, rebranded, and given new life on the MLS. In one week, we had more than twenty showings and three offers to choose from. We accepted an offer for above asking price. The closing was done in three weeks and Trish was an expert every step of the way.
Trish turned our terrible situation around like we could not have imagined. She is incredibly knowable about Tosa, the market, and the process. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help selling, or buying a home in the area.
Carrie thought of everything to make this experience as easy as possible. We've never had a better experience with a realtor!
Firefly included the professional staging and photographs as part of working with them. This was extremely helpful in presenting my mom’s condo in it’s best light. And Carrie thought of everything to make this experience as easy as possible. We’ve never had a better experience with a realtor! She was amazing!
Carrie provided the best experience of any real estate agent in my 50 years of buying both residential and commercial properties.

Being in a seller's market was extremely intimidating and I often found myself leaning on the support of my Realtor Carrie for her expertise.
As a first time homebuyer I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Being in a seller’s market was extremely intimidating and I often found myself leaning on the support of my Realtor Carrie for her expertise. She was both honest and incredibly patient … which was exactly what I needed. While I don’t expect to sell my new home anytime soon, I’d 100% return to use Carrie and Firefly’s services once again and cannot recommend them enough. Working with a locally owned business was just a cherry on top of it all.
She had great insight into the local real estate market.
Carrie was excellent! My wife and I were first time home buyers and she patiently answered all of our questions and walked us through the process. She also had great insight into the local real estate market. Carrie was knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful and we would highly recommend her!

I fully put my confidence and trust in her
Mary Caye did a wonderful job! She patiently guided me through each step in selling my friend’s home. She was easy to get ahold of and promptly replied to all my phone calls and emails. I fully put my confidence and trust in her as a realtor and would definitely use her again should the opportunity arise.
If I could give a higher rating I would! Carrie and the Firefly team were amazing.
Carrie made our home selling process so smooth. We had a slightly odd timeline because of holidays and moving to a new city, and Carrie guided us through all of our options and helped us make the best decision for us. Even from our first interaction at our home she showed sincere care for us and the house. She took care of all of the staging and kept us informed along the way. Even being two hours from the house, we knew that everything was in good hands. Because of Carrie’s excellent understanding of the market, of what buyers were looking for and considering, we received many offers over asking price. We highly recommend Carrie and the team at Firefly.
Carrie was extremely approachable, supportive, and responsive throughout the process of selling our home.
Carrie was extremely approachable, supportive, and responsive throughout the process of selling our home. We are so grateful to Carrie and the Firefly team for helping us reach our goal of selling our home after finding our forever home. We wanted to take our time in looking for our new home without being time pressured, so Carrie helped us check the boxes of staging and photos so that when we were were ready to hit go on listing, everything would be ready. Firefly’s marketing strategies drew lots of interest and our goal of selling quickly was accomplished with ease. We felt completely supported throughout the whole process and would highly recommend this team to anyone looking to sell. We are so appreciative of the help we received every step of the way and could not have asked for a better outcome. Thank you for your hard work and guidance with selling our home!
Thank goodness for Mary Caye Smith
My siblings and I experienced a profound loss with the unexpected death of our beautiful mother. The thought of selling our childhood home compounded these feelings. Thank goodness for Mary Caye Smith who held our hand and walked us through what could have been an overwhelming experience. Mary Caye’s effervescent personality, genuine compassion, and keen business sense made the sale a rewarding and positive endeavor. She found the perfect family who will love “our” home as much as we did.
Trish Collins provided an exceptional real estate experience
Trish Collins provided an exceptional real estate experience. I listed my home for sale and she delivered her expertise from preparing the house for sale to include staging, pricing, as well as the timing of listing, in an effort to maximize profits. Trish kept me apprised during every phase of the sales process and provided guidance on showings and offers. She never failed to keep me informed on an almost daily basis and addressed communications and negotiations with buyers and other realtors immediately. I had over a dozen showings the first week and offers the first day. My home sold extremely quickly.
Always with our best interests in mind
A quick note of praise for Trish Collins. Trish recently helped sell our west Tosa home while simultaneously helping us purchase a new East Tosa home. We cannot say enough good things about Trish; professional, responsive and genuinely kind. Always with our best interests in mind.
All of these skill led us to landing our perfect house!
We are very satisfied with our experience with Mary Caye and Firefly! She was very helpful throughout the process from home hunting to paperwork. Excellent, quick, and thorough communication of any updates on anything involving homes we were looking at. Good external references as well. She has great knowledge of older homes having owned a couple herself!
All of these skills led us to landing our perfect house! Mary Caye and all of her Firefly coworkers (we met a few) were all fantastic!

She was very patient with us as we looked at nearly everything on the market, and ultimately helped us in finding our dream home in Cedarburg! We could not be happier. And we were able to accept an offer on our home for sale within 12 hours of listing – INCREDIBLE! The process was seamless and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy AND sell in the North Shore. 10 out of 10! Thank you so much, Mary Caye!
