The purchase or sale of a home is one of the most important financial decisions a person will ever make.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. I developed these skills through my years of being a Registered Nurse, Teacher, and Transferee.

Experience, knowledge, flexibility and versatility allow me to help my clients achieve their goals-whether it's buying or selling a home, or investing in a property. Setting out with one goal when I transitioned into the real estate business: Provide top notch customer service to my clients by taking the time to listen to their needs and concerns. " Being able to maintain my sense of humor during the pressure of real estate negotiations, being diplomatic and tactful makes the real estate transaction more successful."
I feel it is important to provide excellent communications, professional and concise marketing presentations, educate buyers and sellers in the current conditions of the real estate market, and have a strong sense of ethics and intergrity. Additionally, being well versed in the diverse housing market of Lake County and northern Cook County. My clients state that my exceptional negotiating has provided for them a better return on their investment. Having moved over 5 times in a short period, I understand what my clients experience.

My pledge to you.
1. To Listen to your goals, needs and concerns

3. To handle your transaction with attention to every detail
4. To work diligently on your behalf to get you to the closing table
The best way to explain my approach to the sale of your home, or the purchase of a new home for you is for you to read first hand from my past clients what they have to say about me, the process and what I do...
"Bob sought to understand where I was in my life stage and what was motivating me to sell my previous home and to purchase a new one. Bob helped me identify the community I wanted to move to and the price range, real estate tax level, and type of new home I should be focusing on. Basically Bob was a great listener and very astute and intuitive about my real estate needs. And on the other side, he was a very good negotiator and made the deal happen. Bob was fun to work with in a number of ways and even when the circumstances shifted on both sides; it was a successful conclusion on both ends thanks to Bob and his special ability to know what everyone needs". Cindy S.
"I cannot emphasize enough the amount of time, care and effort that Bob put into helping my husband and I find our home. He was very patient, honest and really listened to our wants, needs and concerns". Jennifer W.
"Bob is the most amazing agent we have worked with. He made the entire process so much fun and knew so much about the steps we needed to take. Even when we had issues with attorneys and getting quotes. Bob was right there guiding us along. I cannot even describe what an amazing man Bob is and how much we appreciated everything he did." Katie O.
"There was plenty of communication and follow-up when requested. Very professional and always courteous even with the difficulty of the short sale process". Richard W.
"Very accessible and always made sure he thought through what could benefit or harm me. I felt like my interests were taken care of". Rita S.
Bob was extremely patient with us and educated us as first time home buyers. He pointed out many useful things that first time home buyers simply would not know. Bob answered our questions very quickly and was always available to help." Laurie M.
"Bob was ALWAYS on top of things. Very helpful and I trust him greatly. He really helped make my first time home buying process comfortable for me even when things were a little crazy." Valerie G.
"Hi Bob and thank you for the fantastic experience you made for us! We cannot wish for anything more than what you have already helped us with". Mikael H.
In closing, I am a full time real estate professional who is dedicated to my clients first and foremost. I would welcome and be honored to assist you in your next home purchase or sale!
Living in northern Lake County for the past 30 years has given me a solid knowledge of the communities, schools, restaurants, park districts, as well as southeast Wisconsin. Since, many of my clients enjoy looking in both Illinois and Wisconsin before making their final home buying decision; I furthered my skills and knowledge by achieving a real estate license in Wisconsin as well. This way I could help both buyers and sellers in both states.
Transferee clients come into town to tour an area they have never seen before, this can be daunting. My goal is to help them have a "good feel" for the area when they leave but even more important is a confidence, that I will assist them 150% to make their move as seamless as possible!
My seller clients, know I will work hard for them in every aspect of the sale. It's the difference between their home on the market and getting their home sold!
Bottom line, I take my career very seriously!
But my career doesn't stop after the transaction is complete. I am a resource, a REALTOR®, and now a friend, long after you have bought or sold your home!! I have a hard time "bragging" about myself, so here are a few testimonials from my clients:
We were "thrilled" with the ease of our home purchase and with Cheryl!
John & Nancy (Buyers)
She worked hard for us until we found exactly the right place. She always got the answers we needed and followed up with us. We are very happy and more than satisfied. Cheryl Henning is the best!
Sue & John (Buyers)
Once I made the offer, I was able to simply put the deal into her hands and know that it is being handled with 100% professionalism. She guided me through the process and did will not sway from her responsibilities.
Cheryl was very helpful in staging the property and counseling me to prepare the property for sale. She did a great job. Cheryl is an asset to Century 21!
Cheryl was extremely dedicated to our family when we sold our home! Caring, professional and helpful in every detail.

Comments: Read my clients' comments about me..
She is extremely organized and kept us updated. She had a clear and aggressive marketing plan. Her commitment to service is like no other agent. We worked with a couple of agents before and they never delivered what they promised. We knew she would provide us excellent service but, she exceeded our expectations.
Renee is not only on top of the real estate market - she is one step ahead. She would inform us of the current real estate market and what her research showed in the near future. Her ideas and plans on marketing the home showed us she is a seasoned real estate agent.
If and when we have to move again we would no doubt work with Renee again. We have and always will recommend her to our friends and family.
Sari and Brian
My husband and I have worked with 6 realtors in the last 11 years , and Renee was by far the most superior. We recommend Renee for the following three reasons. Renee is a creative problem solver, she's a very hard worker and is an excellent communicator.
Renee is an outstanding agent! I truly believe that if we had not hired Renee Devedjian, our house would still be for sale. Her creativity, work ethic and communication skills make her one of the best in her field.
Bottom line - She is the best!
Laurie and Scott
I moved here from Philadelphia six weeks ago with very little knowledge about this area. Pairing me up with Renee, who is a native of this area and knows it like the back of her hand, was perfect. She took the extra time to help me to understand the feel of the neighborhoods and towns, and was endlessly patient with me as I came into a full understanding about where I'd feel most at home.
Renee just wasn't selling me a house. She helped make one of my life's biggest transitions a smooth and pleasant experience. I have moved many times, and I have to say it's been the best experience!
We would like to express our gratitude and great satisfaction with Renee Devedjian's real estate services. We were at a time in our lives in which we had to purchase a home during an economically unstable time point in this country's history. Renee provided us with outstanding service and reassurance in the face of a challenging real estate market. Her patience and perseverance over eight months was finally culminated in us buying a home that we feel will help us comfortablely build our lives. We highly recommend anyone to utilize Renee Devedjian's expertise in real estate. I know that we ourselves will confidently recommend her to friends looking to purchase a home.

THE EXPERIENCE TO MOVE YOU!!
Growing up in Illinois, I moved 8 times, before settling in Libertyville, and through those experiences I received insights into the needs, wants and stresses a family experiences when moving.
When working with buyers I use critical listening skills to help them prioritize their personal needs and wants, help them set realistic expectations, and then we schedule our journey to begin. By guiding them through various decisions, their goal is attained.
With sellers, I educate them to the current conditions of the market place, which has become very challenging. By managing the details, and following-up on all aspects (with my strong communication skills) all the way to the closing.
Utilizing the utmost care and respect, which I give to each of my buyers and sellers, helps me create clients for life. Many of my past clients stay in contact with me, to discuss the market and their future projects. Most importantly is their continued friendship.
Whether you want to buy, sell, rent, or just discuss your options, I would be honored to represent you!
