Clients are saying:
"We met Carrie by contacting her through the website when we started looking for a home. We are first time home buyers and we were so lucky that we met Carrie that day. She is simply the best. We came having no knowledge about anything about buying a home and she educated us patiently on all the details. She never made us feel pressure about buying and understood what we wanted perfectly. She always responds immediately and helps you answer even the most trivial questions. She helped us get the right home inspector, attorney and always had only our best interest at heart. I cannot put in words how great she is, if you need a real estate agent you can trust absolutely, it is Carrie. We are very glad we got to meet her because not only did she help us find the perfect home for us, we made a friend for life. Thank you so much, Carrie !!!!"
"Carrie has a great understanding of the communities she works in and really informed us of the right blocks to buy on. She has a good relationship with builders and other agents in town. She advocates for her clients and is really top notch. Would recommend her."
"Carrie was the best for our search as first time home buyers in the Western Suburbs!!!!...... We were moving from the city and were only loosely looking at homes to see if anything piqued our interest and she had no problems helping us with our search.
She took us to homes all over in the areas we were looking at in Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, and then several homes in Elmhurst which was our preferred spot. She was very knowledgeable of each of these areas knowing the good schools, proximity to train stations, downtown areas, and knowing any good homes for good prices in these suburbs. She also gave us background on other areas like LaGrange and Park Ridge that weren’t areas we considered when we started our search, so we knew quickly she was very knowledgeable of all of these surrounding suburbs.
The biggest thing we appreciated was her patience since we were not necessarily intent on moving, but she was still very active trying to find us homes. She was very patient and always let us dictate what we wanted and she quickly adjusted to our home buying personality. She took us to any home that we picked out and she also picked out some on her own that matched what we were looking for so that helped us feel like we did a thorough search before picking our final home.
Since she knew what we wanted, our home visits were always efficient and we were able to see several homes in the 2 hour or so stretches when we came from the city for our search.
We finally settled on our first home in Elmhurst a few months back and her work didn’t stop with just the search. She was great during all final negotiations keeping us updated with progress and we had such a level of comfort with her during the negotiations being straight and to the point with us and also not pushy as she told us several times she had no issues if we were to walk away from an offer and had to continue our search.
Carrie helped us get the best price for our new home that we are very happy in!!!!!!..... We highly recommend her and will be using her again should we ever search again for a new home!!!!!"
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carrie! She was constantly advocating for us as our broker and made the process of selling our house and finding a short term rental as easy and QUICK as possible. She is professional, highly knowledgeable and fun to work with. We will definitely use her as our broker for the purchase of our next home and recommend her to all of our friends and family. Thanks again, Carrie!"
