"“Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicagoland market. She is also very good at gaining feedback about the property she is showing and sharing it with the client (good and bad), which is helpful in marketing the home. She had continuous contact with us throughout the selling process and through the closing.""
"“What more could I ask for from a real estate agent? Elizabeth August was kind, courteous, and extremely helpful during the entire condo-buying experience. I am a first-time home-buyer who's nearest resource is my mother in Phoenix. Having someone to bounce ideas off of and get insight from in person was an immeasurable asset. I will definitely refer Elizabeth to any friend, co-worker, or family member who is actively pursuing purchasing a home or condo. I could not be more pleased with my experience!”"

I was very appreciative of her persistence in sells my property as it was a challenge and she was excellent when it came time to finalize the transaction.”"
"We'd been planning to list our duplex on the market for about a year but were hesitant for a couple of reasons. First, the state of the market had us nervous about what we would get for our place. Second, having met with a few different agents at various companies around Chicago, my husband and I just couldn’t find an agent that we felt would look out for our best interests. That is until good friends and neighbors introduced us to Elizabeth. From the first meeting with Elizabeth August, we knew she was the right agent for us. First and foremost we loved the idea of an agent that does all the showings. To know that we were getting as close to firsthand information and reports on showings was invaluable. Also, Elizabeth offered great advice on how best to stage our condo , provided valuable information on how to price and overall, she wasn't an alarmist as other agents we'd met had been. While others had wanted us to upgrade everything to seemingly make their job selling our condo easier, Elizabeth was helpful pointing out the most important things to focus on without spending money needlessly. While we fully agreed with the asking price Elizabeth recommended, we more importantly found ourselves with three competing bids within ten days of having our place on the market. To get more than asking price was beyond our wildest dreams!Elizabeth was also invaluable to us on the buy side. Taking the leap from the city to suburbia, she was relentless in helping us find the perfect home that would fit our budget, and fulfill our quota of "must haves". With our place under contract in late fall and the market slowing down we were getting ready to settle but Elizabeth was relentless – scouring the market, reaching out to find listings that had just come off or those that were coming on the market to see if they might be "the one" for us. To sum up our experience with Elizabeth, we'd never buy or sell with anyone else in the future."
"Elizabeth was great to work with. She was very professional and we knew she was looking out for our best interests during the offer/negotiations. She was very responsive to our requests and was knowledgeable about the market. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking to buy/sell a condo in Chicago."
