Clients are saying:
"I have completed 5 transactions with FSF, most recently a condo in River North. I selected FSF (again) because I am confident that she (a) knows her market, (b) has a great deal of experience in the industry, and (c) addresses the needs of all the parties to the transaction (all of the people involved in a buy or sell) very well. FSF is patiently, professionally, persistent; I recommend her to those who are serious about completing their purchase or sale in a timely, efficient manner."
"Fran was great. She guided us true both in our initial searches and once we had found the perfect place. We look forward to using her again in the future--but hopefully not until after we've enjoyed our new place for a long, long time."
"Fran was outstanding! She helped to stage the home and was able to get us a wondeful deal in an extremely short period of time! We are so thankful for all the help she provided and would gladly recommend her to everyone!"
"Fran was patient and pleasant throughout our entire 6 month or more search for a new home for my wife and me. She keep us posted and took us to many houses but never gave up on us. She knew the right house when it came up and we got it. I don't think to many brokers would have been as diligent or tenacious as Fran. She made a hard task pleasant."
"This is the third time we have worked with Fran, and she is fantastic. Highly recommend her!"
