"In most cases, a person’s home is his or her single most important investment and one that is very personal. It’s extremely important to me not only to help my clients find the perfect home, but also to advise them in ways that will ensure the profitability of their investment. Even when the real estate transaction is complete, I view my role as advisor as an ongoing one, and I am always available to provide valuable information and to advocate for my clients’ real estate interests."

Clients are saying:
"Rachel was a great through the whole process, this is the third time we have used her and highly recommend others to do the same."
"Choose Rachel! She truly made selling our home so much easier than we expected. In the middle of the moving process, my husband and I moved to Texas. Rachel did not miss a beat and was ready and available to continue showing our home, even though we were in different states. She kept us up-to-date, provided helpful insight on ways to make our property more desirable, and managed all of our interactions with vendors, consultants and prospective buyers. We appreciated that, at the outset of our relationship, Rachel forecasted the initial few months of the process, which allowed us to have realistic expectations. She also gave us frank and helpful feedback on the offers we received. If you’re looking for a responsive broker with insight into the Chicago market, Rachel is the right choice! Thanks so much again!"
"Rachel was an amazing help during the process of purchasing a home! Something that stands out about Rachel is that she truly cares about everyone she works with. She is passionate about helping you find the perfect home, and she was willing to work with our scheduling even during the holiday season. She was very patient from the beginning and took us to see a wide variety of town homes and condos all across Chicago before helping us narrow down our options. She also gave extremely honest and valuable advice throughout the whole process. For example, she has a deep understanding of the Chicagoland area (because she grew up here!) and knows exactly which neighborhood pockets aren't as safe. She never held back her honest opinions about a place, including the conditions of the windows and other aspects of the home that we would have never thought of. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rachel!"
"Rachel was aggressive yet professional with the negotiation process. She made herself available to meet our hectic schedules. Looking for a house can be a daunting process but Rachel was always positive and never gave up in our quest to find our perfect home."
"We used Rachel for 3 different transactions over the last 7 years. She was always professional, knowledgeable, and helped us navigate each unique Chicago market that we bought in or rented. We enjoyed working with Rachel and have recommended her to our friends!"
