Our Team

About the Kirchoff Group

At The Kirchoff Group, we believe the real estate business is about more than helping our clients buy or sell a home; it’s about helping incredible people achieve their goals and dreams.

We are an independent real estate brokerage firm committed to transparency and client empowerment. Our business is an extension of who we are and what we believe and we believe in personal connection and trust.


Matt Kirchoff
Broker & Owner

Matt loves to build things. It could be an addition to the chicken coop, a kitchen remodel, or a real estate firm that brings his passion for people and houses together in a business built on integrity, honesty and fairness. Real estate isn’t just a job, or even a career for Matt; it’s who he is and what he loves.

With a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from UW-Madison, an Executive MBA from UW-Milwaukee’s Lubar School of Business, and eight years in the US Army Corp of Engineers, Matt’s extensive construction and engineering knowledge is something you don’t often see in the real estate brokerage world. He knows how the concrete foundation was poured, how the frame was constructed and can verbally break down a house to its most basic materials and then build it back up so that his clients understand exactly what they’re buying or selling.

Additional Certifications: CCIM Candidate (Certified Commercial Investment Member)
GRI (Graduate of the Realtors Institute)
ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative)
MRP (Military Relocation Professional)
RENE (Real Estate Negotiation Expert)
WI Licensed Home Inspector
Above & Beyond: Matt helped a client change their locks on closing day when they didn’t know how and he helped scrape and paint window trim for finance qualification.
When Matt’s not at Home: He’s out fishing, camping, kayaking and thinking about the next DIY project or engineering the next sustainable solution to our hobby farm.

Brynn Vukelich

Brynn is a natural caregiver. Her emotional intelligence, sharp intellect, thoughtfulness, and ability to hear what isn’t being said stem from her previous career as a neonatal intensive care (NICU) nurse. She stepped away from a charge nurse position in NICU nursing to learn homesteading and real estate in 2013. She and Matt have rehabbed homes, condos, and even chicken coops together! Brynn loved learning how to install goat fencing, wield a chainsaw, drive a tractor, and plant a garden. Matt has taught her the ins and outs of real estate and how to be an efficient, communicative, and proactive agent.

In real estate, like nursing, details are important. Brynn pays attention to all the big and small things that matter most to our clients. She sees the themes and underlying connections others often miss (and after multiple showings, she’ll remember what a client liked about the very first home we showed them).

Additional Certifications: University of Illinois at Chicago: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Magna Cum Laude. RNC-NIC (Registered Nurse with a specialty certification in Neonatal Intensive Care). EMT (Equine Massage Therapist).
Above & Beyond: Picking veggies from the garden and gathering eggs to share with our clients.
When Brynn’s not at Home: She’s playing with her two goats, Maeder and Maebelle, or loving on her chickens! She loves to wander among pine trees, massage horses, cook wholesome food, play the guitar and accordion, and do yoga (sometimes with animals)!


Colette Schaefer

Colette was introduced to the exciting world of real estate in 2011 when she joined her family’s real estate investment business and became a partner with her father. Since then, she has been able to absorb a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience with commercial investing throughout the United States including residential and commercial leasing, property management, and assisting clients purchase and sell their homes.

Colette has had extensive training in needs-based assessment and is able to use her experiences to create a unique experience for her clients.

Education: Graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, Cum Laude, from The University of WI Parkside.
Above & Beyond: Colette once assisted a married couple purchase a home while the husband was working in Kuwait for two months. The lender was in California, the seller was in London, and operating within four different time zones was a challenge!
When Colette’s not at Home: She’s most likely planning her next adventure out of state or country, kayak fishing, or spending time with her family and friends.
