Get to Know Brenda Thompson

I was born at Howard Young Medical Center. I attended school in the Minocqua area before going on to attend the University of Stevens Point, graduating in 1989 with degrees in both Business and Psycology. Immediately upon graduation I began work at Williams Realty of Minocqua, Inc. and married my best friend Brian K. Thompson. I obtained the Certified Residential Brokerage (CRB), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designations between 1993-1990 and obtained by Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) designation in 2008. Through the years of 1989 and 2006 not only was I producing in the real estate market & obtaining my professional designations, I was also growing a beautiful family. I have been blessed to have 3 daughters; Mariah, Alissa, and Olivia.

In 2006 we sold our family business, Williams Realty of Minocqua, to First Weber Group. I continue to work in sales and managed the office for 1 year at which point I decided I needed to make a change. I am still doing the things that I love to do -- selling real estate and spending quality time with my family. I have been very fortunate to be a TOP PRODUCING agent in the Northwoods market for years, appearing consistently in the top 15 brokers of the 350+ in our MLS area. On February 7th, 2008, I created a team called Northwoods BeST Real Estate. You will see that by adding a small "e" to my initials BST the word "BeST" is formed! The lower-case "e" represents my husband Brian in "EVERYTHING" he does for me and the family.

In May 2012, I started RE/MAX Northwoods and continue to serve as Wisconsin’s top producing Realtor. My real estate business philosophy is – DO THE RIGHT THING! I have been an incredibly successful real estate agent because I put my clients’ interests FIRST when they are buying or selling any type of property. I also communicate and work diligently with all parties including other Realtors to get the job done! My knowledge and experience helps me accomplish all real estate goals in a precise and timely manner.
