Clients are saying:
"Kathy was amazing every step of the way! From selecting properties to view all the way to the closing table she was extremely responsive, knowledgeable and had answers or suggestions for all of our questions."
"If you’re looking for a realtor who will be 100 percent in your corner, Kathy will be perfect for you. She goes above and beyond for her clients. Kathy understands the market, took great care to show us properties that fit our needs — and then she helped guide us through a challenging negotiation process. Kathy is honest and she was an unfailing advocate for us. She’s beyond fantastic."
"My broker exceeded my expectations in every single way possible. She listened carefully to what I wanted and within two visits found my husband and I the perfect building in the loop and the perfect condo unit that checked off every box I had. In every single conversation that I had with her by phone, by text, and by email she was 120% of the time quickly responsive, highly competent, and highly professional. I have bought and sold several properties throughout the years. Kathy's customer service level was second to none. The attention to paid to our needs was way beyond the norm. We also experienced some problems just prior to finalizing the deal with the builder and she literally saved the deal by her suggestion. She was available to go to our inspection and stayed for our entire closing. It is my experience that many brokers just show up to the closing to get their check. Kathy held our hand all the way throughout the process. She is very passionate about her work...this is a career for her not a job. She is an absolute gem!!!"
"I have moved to a different state six times in the past 16 years, so I say this with a lot of experience: Kathy McCauley is the best realtor I have ever worked with. She really knows the market, and she gave us great advice on how to dress the condo for success. She moves with lightning speed and is extraordinarily responsive to every concern. We sold after only one open house, and I was very satisfied with the outcome. The rest of the process, from inspection through appraisal and closing, went incredibly smoothly thanks to her skill and follow-up. I have already recommended her to two friends. When we move back to Chicago I will certainly be calling her again to help us find our new home."
