"I absolutely love real estate. What I bring to the table in my role as a consultant is my sincere desire to educate my clients about market trends, neighborhoods and construction. I leverage my relationships in the brokerage community to get my clients in to see homes not yet listed for the public. I have a staunch sense of loyalty and urgency that generates results. My clients come first, always".

Clients are saying:
"We had the pleasure of working with Annie Bauer during the sale of our condo in the West Loop. Upon the first meeting with Annie, we knew she was a class act. She came fully prepared with a well thought out marketing plan to capitalize on the velocity of the market., She knew how to create high demand in a short period of time, which would lead to the ultimate outcome...multiple offers! My husband and I adopted her plan and our home sold in one weekend with 9 offers, over list price!!! Annie Bauer is an expert in her market and knows how to get a home sold...at its TOP price. Annie is professional, knowledgeable, highly effective and incredibly reliable. She went above and beyond for us every step of the way in getting our condo closed on time. I would recommend Annie to anyone looking to buy/sell/rent/etc... in the Chicago area. Our experience with Annie has left us both highly respectful of her as a top agent in her field, but we have also developed a wonderful friendship with her as well. We only wish we would have met her a lot sooner..."
"My wife and I live abroad and asked Annie to manage the sale of our home in Chicago. She completely knocked it out of the park! Absolutely loved what she did to get it market ready and she was full of enthusiasm. Annie took care of everything for us from repairs, paint, floor resurfacing, beautiful staging and most importantly a effective marketing plan. She was our advocate and a strong negotiator, she leveraged multiple offers and got us far more than we expected to get for the property, over list price. This was the highest priced townhome sold in our association EVER!!! Thanks Annie!"
"Ryan and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Annie. As first time buyers, Ryan and I needed a fair amount of guidance in starting the process. We expressed interest on Zillow for a few listings, and luckily Annie happened to be the agent on one of them. She immediately called us to let us know the property we were initially interested in was already under contract, but that she would still like to work with us to find something we would love. Annie met with us before any of the actual sifting through listings occurred to get a better understanding our interests in our "ideal" condo, and began to search for listings that met our criteria. Within three weeks of working with Annie, we found our condo and began what would be a rigorous process of purchasing. Throughout the process, Ryan and I had a lot of questions. From simple questions via text and email to multi-hour conversations after touring open houses, Annie always made herself available to provide us with the answers that we needed. Her detailed and thoughtful responses made us feel confident that we had a realtor that had our best interests in mind, and most importantly someone that we could trust. Our purchasing process found us in many difficult situations: a multiple offer scenario, difficult negotiations with the sellers, and appraisal issues to name a few. Annie had experience with all of these situations, and was able to guide us in getting our issues solved. Annie was by our side throughout, making sure everything was resolved as quickly as possible. Even during days when no progress made, Annie was checking in with us to let us know where things stood and to ask if we had any concerns. Once we finally closed on our condo and moved in, amidst all the issues we ran into during the process, we have been very happy with our new place. We truly believe a large reason for getting through the process is attributable to Annies expertise as a realtor. We would recommend Annie to anyone that needs a realtor and look forward to keeping in touch with her, both as our realtor and as the friends we have become during our condo hunt."
"Annie was the best! She sold our place sold in a few days and for a higher price than we imagined! She's super professional, knows the market and has a great personality. We would hire her again in a heartbeat."
"Annie was an amazing broker. She was super responsive, knowledgeable and really fought for what was best for me. She gave me honest opinions and was really helpful through the whole process. It wasn't easy dealing with HOA's, moving and other obstacles. I recommend her to anyone asking for a broker. She did a great job and I'm happy to say my condo is sold for a good price!"
