Clients are saying:
"Thank you for all of your help. You have been terrific, both an effective professional and a delight to work with. We really appreciate the many little things you have been so generous in providing. We have enjoyed working with you, and look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood!"
"Emily is simply the best. We had a difficult home for her to sell given serious delays and problems with the new home we were building and planning on moving into, but she continually adapted to our revised schedule and strategized around it. She worked tirelessly to sell the home, got a fantastic price, and was a joy to work with. With so many life changes (moving & a new baby) and the uncertainty of the completion of the new house, it was enormously reassuring to know that we were in such capable hands and she did not let us down. I could not recommend Emily enough. Thanks again!!!"
"I wanted to thank you for your help in selling our home. I'm very happy with the price and that it took just 2 weeks to get an offer and settle on a price. You definitely know the market - you said 925 and it basically went for that. You also generated a ton of interest and visits. For buying it two years ago and renovating, I feel very lucky to have done so well.When I come back to Chicago in a few years, I am going to buy a condo on Lincoln Park West. You will be my first call."
"It has been a wonderful experience to sell our condo with Emily and her team, they were extremely professional, kind and understanding and we couldn't be happier with the whole process they have so well accompanied us with! Thanks a lot and take care!Stefani & Ignacio"
"Excellent experience, very very happy"
