Clients are saying:
"They always say buying a house/condo is one of the most stressful things to do. Well please tell me who "they" are so I can tell them in person that they are wrong. From the very beginning of my search for a new home, Terese was helping me every step of the way. From encouraging me to take my time, truly feel 100% comfortable with the place before I hang my hat and call it home and keeping open communication lines between the both of us every step of the process to ensure I get exactly what I want; she did it all. There wasn't anything I couldn't ask her for or about and I knew at all times she was just a phone call away. In fact, the experience was so enjoyable, I could ONLY see myself working with Terese in the future. I now recommend her to all my friends and consider her one of my closest friends today. Her loyalty to her client's neds is impeccable. She is a true asset to the @properties team and the sheer reason for the smile on my face today as a write a testimonial in my brand new home!"
"Terese was the best! She always answered our phone calls and replied to our emails very promptly. Every concern and need we had were dealt with extreme care and concern. We considered her part of the family by the end. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. We appreciated her sincerity, honesty and good sense of humor!"
"In 2008, we first met Terese LaRocco with @properties. She was recommended to use by a mutual friend who resides in Chicago. My wife, Kris and I were looking for a second home in the downtown Chicago area for our family. On first meeting Terese, there was an immediate friendship and warmth that made the prospect of searching through the streets of Chicago very appealing and enjoyable to us. Via phone and email, she first began to try to determine what our likes and desires were out of our property in Chicago and put together a very thorough plan that was well researched. What I particularly liked was the ability to view properties via their website and web links prior to arriving in Chicago. It was particularly helpful since we lived out of state and had limited time available for physically viewing different properties. Once we were able to narrow the properties down on-line, Terese was able to put together a very thorough property search. After two visits, we were able to find our property. The entire experience from our first meeting with Terese through the completion of the paperwork and closing was one of ease and really simplicity. She did an outstanding job helping us narrow our search and helping up find our property. It is with the highest recommendation that I would recommend Terese as your real estate agent as you begin the task of searching for your new home."
"Moving is really a hard part of everyones life. One of the things that makes it a lot better is counting on someone as knowledgeable and pleasant as Terese to help you out in this process. She is always available, answers quickly and with a smile, making the hard choices involved in this task much more bearable. I would recommend her to anyone that has to buy or rent a new place, as I have done several times. We plan on buying our first house with her help, that is something we are pretty sure of!"
"I really enjoyed doing business with Terese. She was great and I would recommend her to anyone!"
