A native Chicagoan, Stephanie joined @properties in 2012 after owning and operating Avid Solutions, LLC, a well-known Chicago based short sale negotiation company. For over 5 years, Stephanie and her team at Avid assisted over 800 families who were facing foreclosure with short selling their underwater homes. Since becoming a Real Estate Broker she has helped several buyers find their dream homes and sellers obtain the best price for their properties in an average market time of 15 days.
"I pride myself on my relationship building and making my clients feel like they are my top priority all the time. I am readily available and easily accessible to my clients and always try to exceed their expectations." Based on feedback given by her clients, she has been able to do just that.
Stephanie also specializes in working with investors in finding properties to buy, rehab and sell, or hold on to as investments. She has worked with developers such as GNC Homes, LLC on finding them great properties to rehab. She is then able to sell them, sometimes before they hit the market, for top dollar. She also advises her clients on current style and design trends and what will be most marketable in the neighborhoods that the properties are located. Because of her developer relationships, Stephanie has access to many Gut Rehab and New Construction pre market listings, which provide her buyers with a chance to put homes under contract before they list on the open market.
Stephanie has worked with clients to buy and sell homes all over Chicago and the suburbs including North Side neighborhoods of Albany Park, Horner Park, Irving Park, Lincoln Park, West Bucktown, Portage Park, Norwood Park, Belmont Cragin, Lincoln Square, and Dunning as well as Chicago suburbs including Streamwood, Barrington, Evanston, Schaumburg, Skokie, Mundelein, Palatine and Park Ridge.
Stephanie received her BSBA from the University of Dayton and worked in marketing and advertising prior to entering the Real Estate industry. She excels in market analysis and negotiations, especially due to her time in the trenches of the short sale world.
Clients are saying:
"Stephanie's team helped us find a wonderful home at a price that we could afford in a small neighborhood that we were looking to live in. Her team was kind and courteous throughout the entire process, and helped us find a great home inspector and lawyer. It took us longer than usual to close due to loan requirements with the property, but they stuck with us and helped us close. If you're looking to purchase a home, I highly recommend Stephanie and her team."
"We have worked with Stephanie Andre/Andre Property Group a handful of times over the years. One of the things we appreciated the most along the way is her/their level of professionalism, but absolute honesty at the same time. Between helping us rent our condo, sell our condo, buy a house, and list a house, they have been with us the entire time and worked actively to ensure WE got the better end of the deal. Each and every time they worked for us to ensure our success, not for their own pockets. That is huge in the real estate world and I can say with absolute confidence that not only would we continue to reach out to Stephanie and her team again should the need arise, we continue to refer our network to them on a regular basis.
We consider Stephanie and her team to be 'friends' at this point. We trust them and we know they value our relationship as well."
"Stephanie was an amazing agent and was relentless in getting my building sold. She worked any hour of the day to make sure everyone was getting what they needed until ithe property closed. I had an excellent experience working with Stephanie and highly recommend for all your Real Estate needs!"
"As first time homeowners, I know that my husband and I came into the experience with lots of questions and needing guidance. Stephanie and Gary led us through, made sure we didn't miss any steps and comforted/encouraged us when our first house contract fell through. They were available day and night. Eventually, we did still find a home perfect for our family and two weeks in, no surprises! Would recommend them in a heartbeat."
"Stephanie helped us sell our first home and buy our current house. She was a pleasure to work with. She is highly connected and experienced. She worked non stop until our house sold and helped negotiate a great deal on our current house. Couldn't recommend her highly enough."
