Clients are saying:
"My wife, Elizabeth, and I emphatically state that Karen Morris is a superstar broker. She is extremely bright and is able to rapidly identify and understand her clients' needs, goals and objectives. Her experience provides the client with an empirical expertise that structures a strategy for the client and solely in the client's best interest. While her strategy is determined and focused, she retains the necessary flexibility to modify any sales plan to accommodate unexpected demands from the other prospective party to the transaction. Her interest in the client's welfare is very intense and she participates in every activity during the pendency of the transaction while keeping the client informed of every detail. Lastly, her charming personality, an unquantifiable dimension, is the catalyst that coordinates all of the complex factors of the transaction into a smooth conclusion. She is second to none. A class by herself."
"I came in for one weekend from out of town and wanted to make an offer on a property that weekend. Karen immediately got a sense of who we were, what we would like and where we were willing to go in price. She did not waste my time by showing me properties that did not fit us or our price range. She set up multiple appointments to maximize my time, gave valuable input on neighborhoods and housing styles, and was able to quickly give me a sense of Chicago, an area I was somewhat familiar with. By the end of the weekend, we identified the property and made an offer. We have moved many times and Karen is the rare broker who can help you focus and make an excellent buying decision."
"While I have bought and sold a number of houses in the past, I experienced a high level of service with Karen. Each phase of the sales effort has been superior, such as innovative efforts in staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace."
"A coworker recommended Karen to me when I began my first condo search in Chicago and was dissatisfied with the pushy realtors I met. I cannot be more thankful.She has spotted special assessment level defects that I would never have noticed and that might not have been in board meeting minutes, helped imagine renovations, given sage advice on issues critical to long term value of the condo, and been excellent during negotiations. All while making me laugh, feel comfortable, never smooth talking, and leaving the impression that I was her only client. My partner said, "You get the sense that she doesn't need the money, that she does real estate because she loves it." He's right and it'sobvious. After a friend went on showings with Karen and me, he left his agent after the contract expired and started with Karen.At first I doubted the value of a real estate agent because these days the internet has a wealth of up-to-date listings, past sale data, and other relevant information about buildings and the units themselves. Those data have certainly helped me in my search. However, working with Karen, it's clear no DIY research online can return close to the value she brings in terms of dollars and the security that someone highly competent is double-checking and questioning my decisions."
"I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciated the number of hours Karen spent with me in person, by phone, and email keeping me totally informed every step of the way - morning and night. She showed extraordinary professionalism and I could not have had better support.
