"My name is Lauren Trankina and I had the great opportunity to work with Marti Janus in 2012 for the purchase of our home in Glenview.
Marti went out of her way to help us and really took all of our cares and concerns into account. She was loving and patient with our 2 year old son and very flexible with my husband's difficult schedule. She was amazing about accommodating us. She drove from her office to our condo at Lakeshore and Addison when we wrote offers to make life easier.
Marti has excellent connections to a terrific mortgage broker and home inspector. The mortgage broker would write pre-approval letters on a dime for us at short notice and the home inspector found things that saved us a lot of money. Marti was very professional about what we could afford and our decisions.
In the end, we ended up with a house that was the best option in Glenview. We are most pleased after the long journey. Now that all said and done, Marti and our family still have a great personal relationship and I would refer anyone to her." (Lauren Trankina)
