Lighthouse Real Estate Services - Expert Evaluation and Validation Solutions

About Us:

Gordy Welch
President and Founder

25 years ago, Gordy started Lighthouse Real Estate Services by investing in, managing, and maintaining multi-family property in Bayview and Elkhorn, Wisconsin.  
In 2004, Gordy became a Multi-Family Investment Broker at Siegel-Gallagher in Milwaukee, WI.  He 
helped multi-family owners assess, value, position, and sell their property.  This resulted in finding buyers for more than 5,000 apartment units throughout WI. 

In 2007, Gordy received the Wisconsin Association of Commercial Realtors (CARW) "Multi-Family Deal of the Year" Award and the Siegel-Gallagher "Deal of the Year" Award. 
In 2010, after much success at Siegel-Gallagher, Gordy saw the need to help community banks with Evaluations and Validations.  Since then, Lighthouse Real Estate Services has done more than 700 Evaluations and Validations totaling more than $700 million in market value.
