He has also been an instrumental part in taking over the family auction business and incorporating modern techniques and technology to the business. He currently is the real estate broker, lead auctioneer and manages day to day operations for the Real Estate and Auction offices in Portage, Oconomowoc and Richland Center Wisconsin.

Travis enjoys spending time managing the property at his family’s farm along with inventorying and hunting trophy whitetails and turkeys. In the fall of 2016 he enjoyed his most rewarding hunt when his 11 year old daughter harvested her first deer on the same farm he harvested his first deer 28 years prior to her successful hunt. Travis also spends time traveling hunting trips with friends and family throughout the country and the one he looks forward to is going to his place in Kansas which he and his old brother have made an annual trip chasing monster Kansas Whitetails. But most of all he loves spending time with his 2 wonderful girls and amazing wife. The love of his family and outdoors allows for a great understanding with his clients to help direct them to the perfect property, home or outcome with their current situation.

Travis is very active in community, youth, fundraising and various board activities. He is currently the President of the Three Rivers Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association, assists in many local fundraising auctions, Past Director of the Wisconsin Auctioneers Association, and currently sits on the Board of Directors of Divine Savior Health Care in Portage WI. He enjoys helping out communities in donations and raising money for education, wellness and other benefits that help make a community thrive.
