Hi! I’m Larry Pundsack and I’ve been working in the real estate market for well over a decade now helping people obtain their real estate goals!

Prior to joining Dream Realty, I spent nearly 10 years working in mortgage banking, helping mortgagors obtain financing for their homes. During my time within the financial industry I acquired skill sets in project management, training, and team leadership.

After leaving the mortgage industry, I partnered with a private Real Estate Investment Company acquiring property within the Greater Milwaukee area. From there I branched out and started working with local Buyers and Sellers to help make their real estate Dreams come true. My clients have ranged from first time home buyers, investors, families looking to upsize all the way until they’re ready to downsize.

I’ve managed single family homes, duplexes, as well as multi-family apartment complexes within Milwaukee. Having experience on both ends of the home buying and selling process allows me to keep up with the market trends, rules and regulations. This knowledge gives me the ability provide the extensive planning, and attention to detail necessary to service each individual tenant, owner, buyer or seller in the manner in which they should expect!

I’m a self-motivated, energetic, hardworking individual with an open mind that moves each day with a purpose. I pride myself on conducting business and personal ventures with the utmost integrity. If you know anyone looking to Buy, Sell or Invest in real estate, let me talk to them to see how I can help them achieve their Dreams!!

I have been working in Real Estate side by side with the Broker/Owner of Dream Realty, Katie O'Keefe, for the past 2 years. I decided to pursue a career in real estate after going through the process of purchasing my first home. I wanted to continue to be a part of the excitement that comes with the search and discovery of a new home. My passion is in working with clients to understand their specific goals and helping them to meet and surpass their expectations. I understand that buying and/or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions in a client’s life, and it’s a true privilege to be able to assist with that process. 

Prior to entering real estate, I enjoyed a 10 year career in retail as Store Manager and District Trainer. In this position, I became an expert in figuring out how to provide customers with what they want and need.

You will find that I am someone that you can trust to help you achieve your real estate goals while making the process as exciting and stress-free as possible.
