I sell Lifestyle Properties because that’s who I am. I don’t live in town, I sit around the fire pit on summer nights, Ice fish on winter days, drive around the block almost every night glassing for deer, check trail cameras whenever possible, raise my kids to be the best men they can be, and I am fortunate enough to do what I love.
I connect people with properties which enable them to love their lifestyle. My family and I built our home in the country in 2016 so I know the challenges that lie ahead for my clients, but more importantly I know how to overcome them.
I will go the extra acre for you. I manage my family’s farm for whitetails, timber, yields, and conservation.
I will stop at nothing so you can have everything. Government agencies are no stranger to me, I have sold land enrolled in just about every program imaginable.
I don’t see myself as a salesman, I create relationships that live long past the transaction.
Any agent could, not any agent would. If you are looking to buy or sell a lifestyle property chose an agent who lives that lifestyle. I am only a phone call away.

As a person and business owner I put 110% into every facet of life and expect the same in return from business associates. It is not often I run into people the caliber of Bob Clyde. His patience and genuine care & commitment to his clients are extremely impressive!
The land acquisition process we went through was complicated. Bob was there taking care of business every corner we turned and every obstacle we had to overcome without fail. I can say without a doubt I would not have found and acquired the wonderful property I now own had it not been for the considerable efforts of Bob. As if that wasn’t enough, Bob continues to be instrumental with the development of this parcel into what will soon be a state of the art compound and hunting paradise. Bob’s support from strategic development to the hands on working of the land have been invaluable. Bob’s expertise in real estate and hunting land development provided me a turnkey solution that delivered outstanding results!
Whether I am selling or acquiring premiere hunting property in WI, I will never consider doing that without my one time associate and now friend Bob Clyde.
Thanks for everything Bob!”

Mike Cashman Testimonials
We think Mike is an excellent agent. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful and highly professional. He is a pleasure to work with and we were blessed to have him for our agent.
Lloyd & Sharon Baertsch, Wisconsin Landowners
Working with Mike was a pleasure. Mike worked hard for both the seller and for us keeping the lines of communication open and the process flowing smoothly. He made himself available at all hours for questions we had. We would strongly recommend Mike to anyone seeking to buy or sell real estate.
George & Heidi Eliopoulos, Wisconsin Landowners
Mike was great! Our case was very complicated and difficult, but he handled all of it well. He was the seller's agent, but helped us (the buyers) a lot. We hired a lawyer who specialized in real estate to represent us and ask the appropriate questions to keep our best interests in mind. We did recommend Mike to a friend who is now making an offer on a property with Mike as his agent.
Patti Kleffman, Wisconsin Landowner
We highly recommend Mike Cashman. He is an outstanding Land Specialist who tends to business, does what he says he's going to do and gets results. In addition, Mike is honest, has a great sense of humor and is a pleasure to deal with. We couldn't be happier.
Sandy Gehrmann, Wisconsin Landowner
In starting the process of buying land hours away from my home, I was apprehensive. I was unfamiliar with the process as well as the area, and my first barrage of questions was all directed at Mike. He was swift and helpful with his replies, and he was able to lift many of my concerns with the venture by providing thoughtful and straightforward responses. Then when it came time to scout the properties, Mike was willing to hike through snow, mud, and brush in order to show me as many views as possible. Even though the parcel I purchased wasn't the largest, or the most expensive, Mike treated me with a care and consideration fitting a man of great character. He is a terrific realtor, which, given the scale of the transactions he facilitates, is an invaluable resource.

I grew up in rural WI in a little town called Friesland. It was there that I would develop a passion for hunting; which became a passion for deer and land management in general. I Joined White Knuckle Productions in Jan of 2008 along with my lifelong friend Dave Prochnow. I have hunted my whole life and have a passion for filming not just the hunt, but the journey to that hunt as well.
Professionally, after come college, and a brief summer driving “The Ducks” in Wisconsin Dells, I took a job selling cars and it was there that I learned that I loved helping people. Getting paid for it was even better. For some time, I have tried to find a way to blend my passion for sales with my passion for the outdoors.
Well this year a friend whom I had worked with in the car business, convinced me to hang up my car biz career and come to work for Realtree’s United Country Hunting Properties. In March of 2019 I took a leap of faith. It will be on this page you can follow along with me on my journey, the ups, downs, and in between.
As for White Knuckle Productions, our Web Show’s are filmed all-over the mid-west and are primarily Bowhunting, All Fair Chase, and All Self-guided. I am also the host of The White Knuckle Podcast, which is a podcast about all things Bowhunting/Hunting and in general anything related to the outdoors. TheWKP teamdoes all of our own scouting and stand set-ups, food plots, tree planting and everything in between. We hunt on both private and public lands. We show every aspect of the hunt, not just the seconds leading up to the kill. We are hunters just like you, we get no special treatment or hand-outs, and wouldn’t have it any other way. OurWeb ShowandPodcastare a celebration of Whitetails and the lifestyle of the serious bowhunter and now a celebration of the life of Todd Alan Pringnitz who was taken home to Heaven on Feb 25th 2019.
