"At a Trustee of a Trust selling a house in difficult circumstances, Kathleen was a tireless champion of her clients.

I was very happy with her dedication and responsiveness. She made this process a lot easier for me. I am very happy with my choice of using Kathleen to sell my home and would recommend her to anyone looking for help to buy or sell a home!"

"If you're looking for an agent, look no further. Kathleen is the best you'll get. She has a wealth of knowledge about the Chicago market and is always aware of what is happening in the industry. She is patient, kind, and has all the resources you'll need to make your purchase/sale a breeze. Not to mention she is very well respected in the industry and her advice allowed us to find the perfect multi-unit home for our family."

"Kathleen was wonderful to work with throughout our process of buying and selling our home. We have been "in the market" for years hoping to find the perfect home. Kathleen was patiently responding to our questions on various listings. Once we were truly motivated by a home that we saw listed, she quickly stepped up to the plate giving us feedback and guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable in the Chicago market and has worked with real estate for several decades! Kathleen gave detailed guidance when it came to preparing our condo for sale. She put us in touch with wonderful stager who respected our need to stick to a budget. Between the two of them our condo was striking. I truly believe her advice made the sale quick and painless."

"If you have a multi unit building to sell Kathleen is hands down the best. We interviewed numerous realtors and not only did she outshine the others by a land slide, she was able to sell our property quickly and for top dollar.
I cannot say enough positive things about Kathleen as a professional or a person. Although I am not big on giving recommendations she is an exception to the rule.
