Clients are saying:
"My husband and I had the good fortune to find Coleen to sell my daughter’s condominium in Chicago. We live in Washington DC so we were concerned about the travel requirements to sell this property. Our concerns were quickly resolved after our first meeting with Coleen. She truly took care everything and I mean EVERYTHING required to list and sell the unit. She quickly arranged for the preparation of the unit, the staging, the listing and all the required task of the building management. The amazing thing was she did all this in a matter three days. Our listing appeared on every possible listing site. She was very comprehensive in her exposure of the property. Coleen was in constant contact with us on updates and signed us up to a digital platform so we could review all of the showings and feedback of each. Last week we sold the property. We have worked with many agents over the years but we have never had the benefit of an agent like Coleen. I would recommend her to anyone without a second of hesitation."
"Coleen is the best realtor we have worked with. This is our sixth home to purchase and she is by far the best. She is very knowledge of the downtown area and really helped us pick out the area of town that had everything we were looking for.

"Coleen was an amazing partner in finding the right condo, every step of the way. She understood the market and was always in contact with me about new listings. Her knowledge of properties helped me understand more about the places I saw, which made all the difference to me as a first-time home buyer. Coleen's contacts were excellent as well; I ended up using her referrals for my lender, attorney, painter and movers. I had a great experience working with Coleen!"
