Broker/Owner of Route 63 Realty

Homes for Heroes

Hi, I am April Johnson with Route 63 Realty in Hayward. As a lifelong resident of the area, I know every corner of the northland which helps me bring buyers and sellers together. I pride myself as a problem solver with a get it done attitude so that nearly all of my transactions run smoothly.

I am married to a local contractor, Trent Johnson of Trent Johnson Construction. We have 2 amazing boys, 3 dogs, a ferret, a sun conure (Hank), and a bearded dragon. We enjoy everything Northern Wisconsin has to offer from hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and using our UTV.

Our team is dedicated to helping list and advertise properties on the MLS along with finding our clients that perfect home, business, cabin or vacant land. I enjoy every aspect of the transaction from first meeting new clients to lastly making it to the closing table. Contact me for a Free Market Analysis at 715-558-1077 or stop by our office in the beautiful downtown of Hayward – kitty corner from Hwy 27/63 intersection.”

Wisconsin Licensed REALTOR®

“Hi, I am Larry Podolske; people call me Butch. I have been in Real Estate for the last 21 years in Hayward. One thing I enjoy most about Route 63 Realty is meeting new people and helping them with their Real Estate needs.

I didn’t always live in Hayward, I was born in Rochester, MN and started my career with IBM – 30 years. I also have a farming background as I grew up in a rural community. I am married and have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren that I enjoy spending time with. I have lived on Round Lake for many years and enjoy boating and fishing on the lake.

I often spend time enjoying the lake life with friends and family. Other hobbies of mine include hunting and snowmobiling. I have been coming to Hayward since the 70’s and know the area very well.”

“My name is Sadie Schmidt, I’m a Realtor here at Route 63 Realty! I’m originally from Barron, WI, I moved to the area in 2006. When I was 17 I joined the United States National Guard. I am a Mom, I have a daughter and a son. I also have 1 dog, 5 chickens, and a hamster! When I have down time, I enjoy singing, photography, camping, hunting & fishing!

I started working in real estate a few years ago as an office administrator! My Boss at the time inspired me to pursue a career in real estate. The love she had for her career was inspiring. I have had my license for a about a year now and I Love Everything About It!! My favorite part of the job though, is getting to work with so many amazing people!”

Wisconsin Licensed REALTOR®

Minnesota Licensed Broker

“Hi there, my name is Brenda Hanson. I started my Real Estate career investing in 2003 and currently own three properties and manage several others. I have been an appraiser as well but found my true calling as a licensed Realtor. At this time, I am licensed in both MN at Friemann Real Estate Services and at Route 63 Realty in Hayward, WI! I love having the opportunity to work with buyers, sellers, renters, investors, and landlords!

We are all perfectly different from each other and so are our situations. I understand that one answer does not fit all questions. I always do my best to help others. If I cannot help you, I will assist you in finding out who can.

It makes me happy to see first-time homebuyers showing off their new home to family. It makes me happy to hear an inspector say, “but that is not a big deal”. It makes me happy to match a great landlord with their perfect tenant. And it makes me happy to turn over keys to your new home.”

Wisconsin Licensed REALTOR®

Minnesota Licensed Broker

“Hello, my name is Pam Laumeyer. I have been licensed in MN Real Estate since 1987, (1998-2015 as a Broker Owner) and added my WI salesperson license in 2010.

I have experience in managing, training, new construction, land development, and REO properties. I would consider most of my success in Real Estate is based on positive past client referrals. I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and strive every day to exceed their expectations.

I am excited to be a part of Route 63 Realty! The past 20+ years I have been around the Hayward/Stone Lake area and have met many great friends.

As I like to say, what is there NOT to like about Northwest Wisconsin?!”

Wisconsin Licensed REALTOR®

Office Manager

“Hello, I am Angie Tinucci. I am a Real Estate Agent and the Office Manager for Route 63 Realty. I started out working in Real Estate (East Metro MPLS/St. Paul area) as a MN licensed agent from 2012 to 2018 and then moved back to Hayward with my husband and bought our home; using April as our Agent. As I got back into real estate, I am now licensed in WI.   

I love Real Estate simply because I have always had a passion for houses. It brings me great joy helping clients find and close on the right home! As they say, “If it is meant to be, it will be!” You may lose a few in the beginning but the home you are meant to be in will come along. I said “No” twice to the home we are living in; (third times a charm) and it may not be perfect in my eyes, but we love the space, the scenery, and the privacy. Things you can’t change when buying a home, everything else is cosmetic!

This guy is “Handsome Hank.” He is April’s conure and visits us now and then in the summer. He also has a passion for Real Estate. Whenever someone walks in, he chirps! If you stop by this Summer, maybe you will have a chance to meet him. He loves People and watching the cars drive by!”

“Hi everyone – My name is Mary Nilssen & I am the Office Administrator at Route 63 Realty. My happy moments are coming to work & being a “Team Member” as well as meeting all the wonderful people that walk through our front door. Although my background was in the Eau Claire School District as an Elementary School Secretary for 25+ years, the socialization I have with meeting and dealing with the public is the same and I love it!

If you are in the neighborhood, stop by for a delicious cup of coffee and say “hi”. It would be great to meet you and help guide you to one of our outstanding agents to find the perfect home for you!”
