“Call me when expertise and experience matter!”
"Billie is a credit to @properties and, more importantly, a wonderful person. I've always thought that the most important trait that a real estate agent can have is trustworthiness. I trust Billie implicitly never had any doubt that she always had my best interests at heart. Even more impressive, she sold my rather unremarkable condo in a terrible market! I fully plan to use Billie again should the need or desire arise. I cannot offer enough praise to do her justice."
Clients are saying:
"I could not have asked for a better experience! This was my first property purchase and Billie guided me through it flawlessly. She very clearly outlined the process and had incredibly trustworthy recommendations/suggestions when needed. She was extremely attentive and communicative; I was always in the 'loop' and was never left wondering how things were moving along.I came away from my first property purchase thinking that it is a fairly simple process....I believe I owe Billie for my blissful ignorance."
"Billie is a consummate professional, always going above and beyond. She is a pleasure to work with and I would have no one else in Chicago represent me for real estate transactions."
"Billie was extremely helpful throughout the purchasing process. She didn't waste our time on places that she thought would be undesirable for us, and we trusted that she had our best interest in mind throughout the process. Coincidentally, she also helped us to find a great home within ~1 month after starting the search! It was helpful that she is in the Top Agent network and was able to show us our new home before it officially hit the market which kept us out of a bidding war.She's extremely responsive, willing to offer her opinions when asked, and fun to be around as well. Billie made things easy on us by offering to drive us from place to place as we hunted for a new home as well as during the inspection and closing process upon completing the purchase. Only ding I have is that @ Properties needs to produce a more user-friendly website for viewing / filtering out properties, as they are way behind the ease-of-use presented by many apps out there today."
"Billie was great. She knows the market and was on point during the entire process from listing to closing of our condo. She is always quick to respond and has her client's best interests at heart."
"Billie was incredible. Extremely professional and had my best interests at heart."
