Dan has always found landscapes and architecture inspiring. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire in the area of Organizational Communications and obtaining his Masters Degree, Dan’s purchased his first country property in northern Wisconsin and was bitten by the rural real estate bug. The driftless terrain and country landscapes of this unglaciated part of the United States with its trout streams, springs, farms, organic land and woods inspired him to take the leap from real estate as a hobby to real estate as a career.
In 2006 he and his wife Rhonda purchased United Country-Oakwood Realty, LLC and in 2008 Dan obtained his broker’s license and became the broker. Of the many properties Dan has listed and sold since 2005, approximately 70% have been country properties. United Country is the only national franchise that specializes in rural America. He is proud of the unique way United Country offers national exposure and local expertise.
Understanding there is more to real estate than marketing and selling beautiful properties, Dan has achieved the Graduate Real Estate Institute (GRI) designation in 2013, the Council of Residential Specialist (CRS) designation in 2014, the Real Estate Negotiations Expert (RENE) certification in 2016, and the Certified Residential Broker (CRB) designation in 2017. These designations have enhanced his skills in helping sellers list and price their properties and in assisting buyers in making a smooth transition to closing.
Real estate is about relationships and Dan greatly enjoys getting to know his clients and customers and guiding them through the real estate process. He strives to be ethical and to place himself in the shoes of his buyers and sellers. He welcomes any opportunity to visit with anyone about real estate.
Dan is also a FAA licensed remote commercial drone pilot and a licensed real estate broker in the state of Florida. If you are interested in buying or selling Lifestyle Properties in the southwest Wisconsin area, please give Dan a call on his cell # at (608)-606-5344 or at the office at (608)-637-8288.
Dan, we did some exploratory work with two other realtors before we met with you. When we did meet with you I was immediately impressed with your professionalism and your integrity. I don't mean to say that you were a stuffed and starchy shirt, you were just a down to earth practical guy who knew his stuff, his clients, and his market area. The market research that you did without a fee, was valuable and accurate. You listened to us throughout the process and you provided insight and assurance that made us comfortable. Selling a cherished home is never an easy process, but your steadfast approach and guidance helped us through some rough waters and respected our needs all the way. I would never hesitate to recommend you as a realtor. You were always responsive and available and I never had to wait long to hear back from you even about some of my silliest worries...Tom A****
I made a new friend when I met Dan. His character & thoroughness made the transfer of ownership of the property easy. On top of his game the whole time, I will contact Dan when I am ready to purchase another property. I have dealt with many realtors in purchasing my twelve properties and Dan was by far the best. If you are looking for a good realtor I would definitely recommend Dan and his expertise…Troy H****
I have been buying and selling real estate since I was 18. I sold as many as 10 properties in one year so I know a little about real estate. Dan I do not think I could have gotten through the various problems and surprises on this last purchase without your help. Again thank you and good luck, Katherine D****
Dan, As we sit here in our first home. I cannot express enough how much this old house means to our family. Thank you. You took the time and made the effort. Others simply did not. There is so much that should be done. In all the excitement and chaos...I left out the very important gesture of gratitude due you. We thank you very kindly for all you've done for us…much of which you aren't even aware of. Namaste, Morgan & Sarah****
In my 60 plus years I've listed my share of properties and worked with a number of Realtors. Dan Kiedinger impressed me the most. He tells me when the property is going to be shown and always follows up. He keeps me informed. He is respectful, and always conducts himself as a Gentleman. I like that..Terry T.
Jeff Dickson has been involved with real estate for many years. He was an electrician in the construction industry before ultimately starting his own real estate investment company. This gave him first-hand experience with home construction and refurbishment, as well as land development and stewardship.
Getting his real estate license gave him the perfect opportunity to use his knowledge to help others in navigating through the buying and selling process. When working with his clients and customers, he makes sure that they get the attention they deserve. He strongly believes that being a good listener is paramount to having a successful real estate transaction.
He and his wife Jill have called the driftless region home for the past 19 years. They raised their three children with the philosophy that being exposed to different experiences and situations creates a more well-rounded and compassionate individual. Home-schooling, Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School, virtual school, and public schools were all part of their education. As a REALTOR, Jeff continues with this same philosophy, realizing that your real estate needs are unique and important, and should be addressed accordingly.
His hobbies include hiking, organic gardening, bicycling, motorcycles, guitars, but mostly being an artist. He attended The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and is an accomplished “plein air” painter, spending much of his time outdoors, painting directly from nature. This area of Wisconsin has so much to offer and he looks forward to working with you to make your real estate dreams come true.

I worked with Jeff Dickson on a deal to purchase some acreage in Vernon County and Jeff was very easy to work with throughout the process. He clearly knew the property and he was willing to answer any of my questions about it to the best of his knowledge. Jeff walked the land with me and he did more than simply take some pictures from the road. Jeff is knowledgeable, personable and willing to do what he can to make the whole process proceed as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Jeff Dickson. – Kevin McGuire
Dan, the best way to tell the character of someone is not the words they say but the actions they take. While I have never met Jeff Dickson, I sure know him. He has been involved in the selling of my house as an agent of Oakwood Realty. He brought the eventual buyers to my home and did a great job of helping them discover this was a good fit for them and helping them through the process of buying. While he represented me in this sale, he always acted with the greatest integrity and assured both the buyers and my interest were taken care of. In the end, I had a buyer in 6 days and the sale closing without any bumps in the road. Who could ask for a better agent? -Thomas White
Jeff thoroughly discussed selling points and his sales process to us in understandable layman's terms when we listed recently. His experience as an Agent, business owner and builder/contractor helped us tremendously. This combined with his long standing in the community allowed us to proceed with confidence . We appreciate Jeffs approach and ethical standards. - Zillow User 9985655
Jeff was over the top helpfull with us not only did he show us the homes we were looking at ,he let us know some we had no idea were on the market.

We had an excellent experience with Jeff. He was diligent to see that we had houses to look at. He was encouraging when we needed to be encouraged that there was a home out there for us. Not only does he know the area well, he also enjoys the area. Jeff was knowledgeable, hardworking, and yet relaxed as he related to us and that kept us calm and confident. He went the extra mile to help us when we needed it because we were buying from overseas. We would highly recommend Jeff to others. - Jodi Green
Our experience with Jeff was wonderful! He was consistently on top of details, even when our banker wasn't. With Jeff's help, we were able to buy a house that was the perfect fit for us. The seller's realtor also complimented Jeffs timely communication as well as ease of working with him. When you work with Jeff, you'll be working with a positive, knowledgeable, easy to work with realtor who goes the extra mile. - Zillow User: cisewski3
Working with Jeff was great! He's patient, thoughtful, knowledgeable and well organized. I am very doubtful that without Jeff, our search and acquisition would have gone nearly as well as it had. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a good experience in your search for a home or dream property. - Andrew Replogle
Jeff was very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and very helpful throughout the whole process. Through his connections a full price offer was received within 3 days of listing the property. - Zillow User: kkleba4
Jeff was the listing agent for the sellers but always kept our interests in mind, too. He stayed on top of all required inspections, providing timely status communications. From a personal perspective, we felt he was genuinely pleased that we were buying our weekend getaway and offered suggestions for enjoying our time in the ‘driftless area’ of Wisconsin. As a bonus, we received a wonderful welcome basket, with region-specific items and homemade cookies. Nice touch! We would definitely recommend Jeff as an agent. - Zillow User: dknihles
This was my first home buying experience. Jeff Dickson was extremely knowledgeable, professional, efficient and patient with my plethora of questions. He took the time to explain everything to me, which I greatly appreciated. Most importantly, Jeff was also fair and honest, and I wholeheartedly trusted him with the biggest purchase of my life. I truly felt like a valued client from day one. I would highly recommend Jeff Dickson to anyone who is buying or selling a home--you will not be disappointed! - Zillow User: larsuww

"Let me congratulate Rhonda Kiedinger on being a most excellent realtor.

I highly recommend her." --- Gretchen Vaughn
My career in real estate began in 1998 while I was employed as a personal assistant for a successful real estate agent. That experience taught me the sales side of the industry and the importance of organization, time management, and client relations. I was later employed as a closing coordinator for a legal firm that specialized in real estate transactions. That's where I learned the legal side of the industry and how properties are conveyed from one owner to another. Years later, employed as a corporate secretary for a land developer, I learned how suburban neighborhoods are created and developed. I became familiar with plat maps, instituted homeowners' associations, recorded deeds at the local registry, and occasionally attended closings on behalf of the company. Now, I'm a licensed facilitator utilizing the knowledge and experience I've gained over the years to benefit buyers and sellers in Wisconsin's Driftless Region.
I am known among my friends, associates, and clients as a caring agent, sensitive to the needs of those I serve and as a person who truly cares about what is important to them. I have a passion for service and build relationships with my clients whenever I can, often going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I'm providing them with the best possible communication, client service, and satisfaction.
