Clients are saying:
"Sondra Douglass is by far the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. We had a relationship with another realtor for over 20 years who handled the sale of our house in New York, and Sondra is an even better agent than our friend. Sondra was patient with us throughout, really represented our interests in the transaction, advised us on how to get the best price for the house, guided us through the inspection, assisted in the negotiations, worked with our attorney and with the lender, and went to town hall to purchase our transfer tax stamp. In fact, Sondra showed us houses on the morning she was leaving for her family vacation. Her commitment to her clients, her superior knowledge of real estate transactions, and her insiders understanding of the Lake Forest market set Sondra apart. My wife and I can truly say that if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Lake Forest, Illinois, you are not getting the best if you are not working with Sondra Douglass."
"Sondra did an excellent job for us in helping us purchase our new home. She was very knowledgeable about the marketplace and very focused on making sure the transaction went smoothly for us. We highly recommend her."
"Sondra is everything you want in a realtor. She was extremely knowledgable about the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff area, responsive, well organized and hard working. She's been working as a realtor in the area for many years and gave great local insight on the houses we toured. My wife and I always enjoyed our time with Sondra and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor."
