Shawn grew up in Chippewa Falls graduating from Chi Hi in 1989. Following graduation he enlisted with the United States Navy and served during Desert Storm until he was honorably discharged in 1993. He returned to the beautiful Chippewa Valley and met his wife Karen and had 3 beautiful daughters. Shawn began his real estate career in 2004 and since then has worked every aspect of the real estate industry representing sellers, buyers and investors in both the residential and commercial market. Much of his success can be traced to his previous work experience in the home improvement industry, which makes him a great asset to both buyers and sellers.

Small town girl who grew up with a love for rural Wisconsin. If you ever watched the famous T.V. show Cheers you will know the theme song lyrics "where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came" - that is what my hometown of Clear Lake meant to me. So, when I decided to move to the Chippewa Valley in 2012, for more opportunity, I wasn't sure if I could find a new place to call "home."

It didn't take me long at all to fall in love with this spectacular area, the people and all this community has to offer. From the Christmas lights at Irvine Park, many beautiful walking trails to the countless festivals, how could one not fall in love with The Chippewa Valley!

I have always been intrigued with real estate from watching my parents purchase investment properties when I was younger to fast forward now, helping my other half Phillip Dresel flip houses, I know I have found my forever career! After working on the administrative/marketing side of real estate for about two years I took the wonderful opportunity to work for Shawn Bergeman and be apart of this fantastic team as his licensed real estate assistant.

With my years of experience in marketing , advertising and sales along with a love for The Chippewa Valley and the want to help others I know I will not disappoint during your real estate process.

"The greatest secret to success is helping other people become successful & happy".

I am originally from Ohio where I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Wildlife Biology.  I moved to Eau Claire in 1995 and I have worked in Eau Claire County ever since.  My wife is an Eau Claire native and we live and are raising our two daughters on the west side of Eau Claire. 

My love of real estate influenced me to gain education and secure work as a property title researcher.  I am now proud to work with Eau Claire Realty where my goal is to help people find their next home, investment property or commercial investment. I encourage you to put my perfectionism to work.  Please contact me by phone or email with any of your real estate questions or needs.
