Clients are saying:
"My broker was on time, had all information, extremely helpful in negotiating lease. Very professional and communicated with me immediately when I asked a question. It was a seamless transaction and I could not be more impressed with my broke"
"Raelie was wonderful, hence the reason we chose to work with her again! Sge's so pleasant and knowledgeable - a true gem!"
"I wanted to take a bit of time to write about the wonderful experience we recently had working with Raelie Kaplan. She was professional, optimistic, enthusiastic, reliable, knowledgeable, and patient, even when we, my husband and I, began to wonder whether or not we would be homeless in a matter of weeks; and even as we had the very unfortunate experience of seeing just how unreliable her peers were - none of whom were @ Properties agents but who represented their companies and themselves incredibly poorly, to put it kindly.Raelie persevered and, as a result, so did we. I don't want to bore you with all of the details but do want to make sure you understand how sincere we are in our very positive impression of Raelie. We have already recommended her to several friends and have no plans to stop sending business her way. In addition, we will trust her with any and all future real estate endeavors that we have. Both of those actions in and of themselves are the truest form of flattery and a real testament to her skills and characteristics.To whatever extent Raelie represents you, rest assured she does so in the best light and the most effective way possible."
"I was in a huge crunch to find an apartment and Raelie was very supportive and helpful during this time. Within a few days, she helped me find a place that I was very comfortable with. Im really happy with my apartment and the location is great! I would not have been able to find this cute place without her. -Ashley Horn"
"Raelie has demonstrated good skills and common sense. I would have her represent me with any real estate opportunities in the Chicago area. -Teri Lewis Drake"
