My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional-Integrity,In-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a hlgh-quallty professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Chicago real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling method everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

Clients are saying:
"Eileen was enthusiastic and attentive from our very first email exchange. She knows Chicago and its neighborhoods very well, and is very quick to set up viewings whenever needed. We never felt the need to clarify things, as she understood our needs very well from the start, even when we had difficulty articulating them. We never felt any pressure to get things moving faster, but when we found a place we really wanted earlier than we expected, Eileen did not hesitate to get the process underway. We are very happy with Eileen, and would happily recommend her to anyone.Jack and Samantha"
