Clients are saying:
"Yvonne is the BEST! She's personable, knowledgable, and reliable. It always felt like she had our best interest in mind and I loved that she was easy to get a hold of, no matter what small question I had. Yvonne made each step of buying and selling our house easy to understand and I appreciate all the help she provided. I can't recommend her more!"
"My husband and I were relocating at the end of 2019. Yvonne was awesome to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the area and took her time to show us around. She really listened to what we wanted. In fact she suggested we look at the house we ended up purchasing at the beginning of our search (we should have listened to her!). When it came to the purchase and negotiating , Yvonne was invaluable. The house was a new build and we decided to have the basement finished. She helped us navigate the inclusion of the basement into the contract. Yvonne was extremely responsive. We were under a time crunch and she kept the process moving, even through the holidays. Moving can be stressful, Yvonne made this move much easier. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Yvonne and highly recommend her!"
"Selling our home was one of the biggest financial decisions in our life. We had lived in the house for 17 years. We are extremely glad we worked with Yvonne. I would definitely recommend Yvonne because of her experience and forthright approach as well as in depth knowledge of the Elmhurst real estate market. She respected our ideas but was able to set a reasonable expectation on our part.
We were able to move quickly with her insight on the necessary steps to prepare the house to see. She had great contractors to get some last-minute jobs done. At no time did she pressure us to make decisions. She was available whenever we had questions. Her knowledge of the Elmhurst market was quite excellent!
Sincerely, Bryant and Corinna"
"Yvonne is wonderful to work with, professional, honest, and also has a great sense of humor! She was enthusiast about our home we were selling and patient in helping us find another one in the area we wanted. Kristen B."
"I can not say enough about Yvonne! We first used her to buy our house-we we're moving to the suburbs from the city & she could not have been more knowledgeable about Elmhurst and every aspect of the real estate environment! Fast forward 13 years, we'd kept in touch as Yvonne remained an amazing resource turned friend....time to sell our house as we needed to relocate. There was no one else we considered!!! Yvonne walked us through everything we needed to do to prep the house for sale and put together a very thorough and aggressive marketing plan. Our house sold super quickly & for top price. She made the sale of our house, fraught with emotion, seem less. If you are looking for a consummate professional who knows the market inside and out and is a ball to work with look no further!"
