Boutique Milwaukee brokerage strengthens brand connections in the Badger State
MADISON, N.J., Dec. 7 , 2021 — ERA® Real Estate, a global franchising leader within the Realogy family of brands, today announced the affiliation of ERA MyPro Realty in Wisconsin. Based in Brookfield, the firm serves the Greater Milwaukee area.

Kaus earned his real estate license in 2015 after retiring from a career in social work, was mentored by Ulvog and earned his broker’s license in 2018. Burlage began her real estate career as a transaction coordinator, joining Ulvog’s team in 2018 and earning her broker’s license in 2021.

To assist these homeowners, the company connects clients to service providers to help maximize sales price.
The local economy is growing, supported by a number of large anchor companies headquartered in the area, including Harley-Davidson, Kohls Corporate, Northwestern Mutual Life and Rockwell Automation. Healthcare is another major economic driver, with more than 80,000 area residents employed by health-related companies. Residents take advantage of Lake Michigan, an extensive county parks system and a diverse entertainment scene ranging from fine arts to professional sports teams.
- Recruiting performance-driven agents will be a main driver of growth for the firm. The leadership team’s complementary skillsets will attract a wide variety of agents including veteran agents, second career agents and new agents.
- Team ERA University’s proven training and professional development courses will play a key role in increasing agent productivity.
- The company also plans to leverage its affiliation to explore new growth opportunities such as extending its service area to the north toward Sheboygan and south toward Racine and Kenosha.
- According to the National Association of REALTORS®, the median sales price in Brookfield is $370,000 while the median sales price in Milwaukee is $171,800.
- According to Ulvog, the firm’s average sales price is in the $400,000 to $600,000 range.
“The ERA MyPro Realty leadership team understands what it takes to drive success for their company, agents and clients. The brokerage is clearly benefiting from their diversified backgrounds and perspectives as they pursue aggressive growth plans. Not only are they driven, but they are also highly attuned to the needs of their market. We are thrilled Erik, Jeff and Haley chose to partner with ERA Real Estate to bring their business to the next level, and we are excited to increase ERA®’s presence in Wisconsin.” – Sherry Chris, President and CEO of ERA® Real Estate
“Our guiding principle has always been about generating growth, not just business. After a few years, we realized we needed a stronger value proposition if we were going to achieve the goals we had set for the firm. ERA aligned perfectly with our close-knit team approach and our focus on building relationships over transactions, which are both differentiators for us in our market. As an ERA affiliate, we can maintain our boutique personality while providing our agents with big brokerage resources.” – Erik Ulvog, Broker/Owner, ERA MyPro Realty

We’re confident in our ability to recruit, develop and retain agents with these new resources.” – Jeff Kaus, Broker/Owner, ERA MyPro Realty
