Real estate encompasses more than just showing houses or finalizing transactions. For us, it is an opportunity to get to know our clients and help them achieve their goals, bring their visions of a perfect home to life, and work within the bounds of their preferences. All of this is made possible with the years of combined expertise and experience that our team offers each individual who selects us to take care of their real estate needs.

The Sue Wells Team has a full time assistant and buyer’s agent available 7 days a week which offers amazing convenience to our clients with varying schedules. Additionally, we are a member of the Regional Multiple Listing Service of MN and Voyager Multiple Listing Service of the Chippewa Valley in Wisconsin.  You can also communicate with us or find our listings on Facebook, Craigslist, LinkedIn and Twitter. Regardless of whether you want to buy or list, we are here to help. Even if the listing is posted through a different agency, the Sue Wells team is equipped to assist with any home on the market, answer all of your questions or refer you to a qualified realtor located in any part of the country, through a National Referral Network (CRS). These are just a few of the ways we aim to provide an unparalleled level of satisfaction for our customers.

Sue Wells

Please consider me your Western Wisconsin specialist.  The Sue Wells Team works with residential, lakeshore, new construction, vacant land, business opportunities, and commercial properties; it also serves as a restaurant specialist.  The group, led by Sue Wells, consists of agents licensed in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Since starting her real estate career in 1979, Sue Wells has been involved in thousands of home sales.  Growing up in a St. Paul family who owned a sporting goods business gave her the accounting and sales background which has molded her strong presence in the Minnesota real estate field.

In 1988, she received her Wisconsin real estate license. Then, after finding out how much she enjoyed Wisconsin, she made a permanent move the New Richmond/Star Prairie area. During her time in the real estate arena, she has obtained the following credentials: ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), and GRI (Graduate Real Estate Institute) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist).


Nate Hidde

Nate A Hidde

Nate obtained his Wisconsin Real Estate license in the summer of 2015 and joined the Sue Wells Group in the fall of 2015. After realizing his love for the industry and the vast connections he has made over the years, he quickly realized getting his Minnesota License was a must, which he obtained in the spring of 2016. He is fluent in working with both sellers and buyers in all areas of real estate including single family, multi family, commercial and vacant land.  Nates expertise really shines when he is given the opportunity to assist a buyer or seller with their New Home Construction needs, which is a product of his 15+ years in the New Construction industry. 


Nate began his experience with new home construction when he was the Contractor Sales Estimator at Menards in 2003, then a Contractor Sales Field Representative until 2005.  That is when he was noticed for his talents as was whisked away by an area builder.  That began a nearly 10-year experience where he worked as a Purchasing Manager, Quality Control Manager, Jobsite Superintendent and Construction Coordinator.  It was over this time that Nate coordinated many facets of the construction process working with team members, subcontractors, vendors and of course the most important individuals, the homeowners.  Real estate was the next natural challenge and Nate met it head on.


If you or someone you know are looking to buy, sell or build in Wisconsin or Minnesota, give him a shout, you’ll be glad you did!
