  • Seller review
    Kathleen has always been attentive to my business needs over multiple transactions over several years
  • Seller review
    Kathleen has extensive experience, business savvy and acumen, and actively promotes and markets the property in ways that make a positive difference. She is consistently responsive in a very timely manner to any questions or anything that arises during the process. Hands down, Kathleen is my first choice to buy or sell any home on our behalf in the future.
  • Buyer review
    Kathleen is amazing, super attentive to the client's needs and requests. Did her homework to be sure time was not wasted when reviewing potential properties. Made the negotiating process and simple to work through. The closing could not have been smoother. She walked every inch of the house with the home inspector.
  • Buyer review
    We gave Kathleen an extreme wide range of criteria: locations, price range, #BRs, garage and age ("very old or new"). For example, she helped us narrow down a 40 mile swath of towns we were interested in across the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago, that's a huge geography. She patiently worked with us, got to know us and brought us the perfect home. Kathleen has just the right mix of professionalism, experience, contracts knowledge, market sense, personality and humor. I would highly recommend her, and would hire her again in a heartbeat. Her experience gave us full confidence as we shopped, offered and bought. Thank you Kathleen for finding us the perfect home, we have been in two weeks now and LOVE it. If you had told me I could move from Colorado to Chicagoland and get a better home, backyard and view, I would not have believed you. Kathleen did it!
  • Seller review
    It was a very difficult decision to put my house on the market as a short sales. Kathleen answered all my questions, held my hand and walk me through the process. Kathleen worked with my attorney in providing information to the bank regarding the short sale. As always, Kathleen went above and beyond the "call of duty".
