Our Team Highest level of service & professionalism

Julie Winter-Paez Broker / Owner, CRS GRI SFR CLHMS

I am the wife of a wonderful husband ( Andres ) and the mom of three awesome kids; my son Christopher; fresh out of the US Air Force and currently a student in Eau Claire, my daughter Jenna; a new graduate of UW Whitewater and a new real estate professional in Madison; and our baby Addison now in eighth grade. WHERE DOES THE TIME GO? I feel so blessed every morning when I wake up because I am doing something I feel passionate about; helping people find a home. Whether it is their first, their last, or their vacation home, this is something I feel incredible blessed to be able to do. I am so grateful to my husband and my 3 children for openly and happily letting me follow my dream; even if it takes up some of their Saturdays and even if they know more about home values in Northern Wisconsin then they care too!

When buying real estate, experience matters. I am excited to share with you my 39+ years of real estate expertise. I am here, not only to help you find that perfect Northwoods property and negotiate the best deal, but to guide you through the process of financing, zoning, inspections, and more.

Like many, we vacationed here before making the Northwoods our home. I am a native "Wisconsinite"…. Originally from Door County. I consider myself blessed to wake up every day to the beauty and serenity of the Northwoods and am honored to have the ability to help you achieve your dream too. I look forward to helping you become our next Northwoods Neighbor!


Alicia Dal Ponte Buyer Specialist


I was born and raised right here in the Northwoods where my family has called their lakefront property on the Eagle River Chain, home for over 70 years.  My father was a successful restaurant and bar owner who instilled to me his love for the area and his passion for providing visitors with that “Northwoods experience.” After graduating from the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse with a double research major in Business Communication and Sociology I moved to Madison and then Colorado. I soon realized my passions mirrored my father’s. The Northwoods is where I wanted to be, so I came home. I enjoy spending my free time on the water, fishing, camping, exploring in the woods, cooking and being an Auntie! I’d love to help you find a little piece of the Northwoods to experience and call home.


Mandy Mortag Buyer Specialist


The Northwoods is such an awesome place to live and work. While growing up my family adventured to Texas and Florida but we always came back to Wisconsin! I attended UW-Stevens Point and got to experience being a part of the Universities Volleyball team as well as studied Physical Education. I soon became a young mom and I knew exactly where I wanted to raise my daughter, and I headed back to the place I call home; The Northwoods. From being a stay at home mom to a single mom, working full time I have gotten the chance to dabble in a few different career options trying to decide where I was meant to be. In the past 11 years of getting to be a mom to an amazing daughter I have gained the titles of; Dance mom, Soccer mom, and Gymnastics mom! I was ready to find my own title and that is when I entered into the Real Estate field as an Administrator. After a few years I decided that my passion had grown for this industry and decided my title I was searching for was to be a Real Estate Agent in the Northwoods! My road has led me right where I am meant to be and I couldn't be happier. Sharing with my daughter all the amazing things the Northwoods has to offer has always been a favorite thing of mine to do with her and to think of being able to do that with others brings me so much excitement! In my free time I love being on our lakes, hiking the trails, and exploring our many bike paths. My roots have always been planted here and I look forward to helping you find a place where you can plant apart of yours too!
