Clients are saying:
"Mariana was an amazing realtor. She knew exactly what I wanted and was able to stay in my price range. She is extremely knowledgeable and made the process very easy. Will absolutely recommend her to anyone looking"
"Mariana sold my home with one showing and we had multiple offers the next day. She is the consummate professional. Making the process easy and successful."
"Mariana is nothing short of amazing. In 15 days she provided a consultation on recommended renovations which she oversaw through to completion before listing, sold our home (at a record price for the building) and got us under contract on a new home! It was beyond our wildest expectations to say the least. She was available day or night and guided us effortlessly through the entire process. We will be forever indebted to her and glowingly endorse and recommend her to anyone who will listen!"
"We had a great experience working with Mariana! She helped us buy our house six years ago, and we were thrilled to work with her again to sell our house this spring. We had a great listing experience with her, and she made sure to prioritize the things that were most important to us. We were concerned with having minimal disruptions for our baby and toddler in the midst of the open house and showing process, and she made the process about as easy as it could have been! She knows the Chicago market inside and out, and we were happy to have her talents brought to bear on our home sale."
"Mariana was amazingly helpful throughout the entire process. Once we found the house we wanted we ran into several issues with the Seller and Mariana stood with us the entire time on nights, weekends, and vacations to explain everything to us and talk about options. We really felt that she got to know us and what we wanted so she had our best interests at heart throughout the process."
