Clients are saying:
"We worked with Helen to sell two Lakeview properties in 2010 not the most ideal time to be selling both a condo and a townhouse. After an initial and unsuccessful attempt to sell our condo, we hired Helen who brought her skill and insight to the preparation and sale of our properties. Her direct and honest approach helped make the difference between selling and languishing on the market. Whether it was suggestions on paint colors, furnishings, aesthetic improvements or pricing decisions, she successfully guided us in selling the properties based on her professional experience and understanding of the market. We made the changes Helen suggested, and she was aggressive in her selling efforts. As a result, the condo was under contract in less than a month after relisting, and we had a contract on the townhouse in about four months. We would recommend Helen to anyone we know!"
""My wife and I were first time home buyers and a friend recommended Helen to us. On our first meeting with Helen, we felt very comfortable with her knowledge of the Chicago market, experience level and motivation. She made sure we understood the home buying process and ensured we were comfortable throughout the process. She is very high energy, aggressive and will work extremely hard for her clients. We were very picky with what we wanted and she was very patient with us. When we finally decided on a place, she worked tirelessly to get us to the price were comfortable paying. Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience with Helen and would recommend her to anyone.""
"We first met Helen in 2005 when she represented the seller of a home we purchased in Lincoln Park. We were so impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and loyalty to her client that we used her as our listing agent when we decided to sell the home five years later. As market conditions had changed dramatically, it was essential that we had an agent that understood current real estate dynamics and knew what it would take to move a property in a depressed housing market. Helen did not disappoint. She toured every competitive property in the neighborhood, understood current pricing dynamics and was tenacious in her effort to sell our property. With her guidance and hard work, we were able to sell the house in less than 90 days when other similar properties in our neighborhood sat on the market for several months or longer."
"Helen is a valued professional. She took on our listing, which had previously been on the market, and with a few suggestions and marketing know-how the house sold very quickly. She was professional at all times and we deeply appreciated her broad and deep expertise in the Chicago real estate market."
"We originally meet Helen when she was representing the seller of a home we purchased. We were impressed by the way she conducted herself and decided then that we would use Helen when we sold our home. We hired her to sell our Chicago home in Fall 2007 and she did an outstanding job selling it in a difficult market. She provided us with valuable insights regarding market conditions, how best to market the property and acceptable terms to accept from the seller. During the process Helen did a masterful job of adapting to the changing market conditions and communicating frequently with us so that we could make informed decisions. Helen is one of the hardest working realtors in the city and has proven in multiple transactions that she can get the job done with a high level of quality and service""
