Clients are saying:
"My husband and I would highly recommend Carrie McCormick to all of our family, friends, and anyone who is house hunting. From the very first conversation with Carrie, she had our backs! It was Super Bowl Sunday, but that didn’t stop Carrie. She ran around the city searching for the perfect condo. We needed to find a place for our daughter, as she was between apartments and living in a hotel then an air B and B. At the time, we were in Florida, we live in Chicago, so Carrie took videos and FaceTimed us. We made an offer during Super Bowl and Carrie was on it, negotiating through half time and through the end of the game. The offer was accepted! She then worked with our attorney, handled the walk through and went above and beyond. She turned what was a very tight time crunch, only two weeks, and a very stressful time in our lives, into a beautiful experience! We are so lucky we found Carrie and grateful to have had her orchestrate from the search, to offer and through closing. We can’t thank her enough! We are truly thrilled with our new condo! We couldn’t have done it without Carrie McCormick!"
"Carrie was absolutely instrumental in my purchase of a condo. She guided me through the entire process to make it stress free and I was able to leverage her expertise every step of the way. I would recommend Carrie and her team to anyone who is looking to purchase!"
"Carrie is a ROCKSTAR!!! She is knowledgeable, courteous, and responsive! She made us feel like we were top priority through both the buying and selling process. We have loved working with her and her team!"
She impressed us at our first meeting with her knowledge and marketing methods.
She explained in detail the process to making a successful sale including metrics in deciding the correct price. As opposed to many other brokers who are looking for the commission on the seller side, who just send buyer's with their brokers to the site. She makes sure she is there to explain all the finer details of the property.
Her extensive network of marketing to a select group before going live on MLS, really does work.
She had a serious buyer before we even listed On MlS, she helped the negotiation process go smoothly and made sure all was ready for the closing.
Thanks Carrie for a seamless experience."
"Carrie and her team provided me with the best customer service experience through the process of selling my condo. From initial discussions, staging help, pictures, marketing, open houses to offer and sales completion the attention to detail and care I received was the BEST."
