Clients are saying:
""I began working with Lisa Vergara in March, 2017 upon receiving a recommendation from a prominent realtor in the Chicago area. I was living over 300 miles away from Palatine, Illinois which is the community I was looking in to purchase a condo. I was in town to see an open house and had found another property that interested me. It had just gone on the market and I suspected that it would sell very quickly. I contacted Lisa and she immediately responded. Lisa was very sensitive to my unique circumstances of distance and time constraints. She immediately rearranged her schedule to help me. Lisa was extremely familiar with the area and with the condo building I was interested in. I made an offer on the condo within an hour of seeing it and after a brief negotiation, it was mine! Lisa made it possible for me to see the condo again on a subsequent trip in order to take more photos and measurements. Prior to closing, I had questions come up that Lisa was able to help me get answered, either through the homeowner's association, the seller or the seller's realtor. Additionally, Lisa worked effortlessly with my attorney and my lender, resulting in a quick closing. My closing date was set for the early morning of April 17, 2017. That meant that my final walk-thru would take place the weekend of Easter. So that I could spend some time with my family, including my elderly mother on Saturday before the closing, Lisa very graciously offered to meet me for the final walk-thru the afternoon of Easter Sunday. It also meant that I did not have to spend additional money for a hotel on Friday or Saturday. Lisa attended my closing which went flawlessly. The one exception was that the sellers forgot to provide me with the garage remotes. I didn't discover this until after the closing when I went to my condo. I called Lisa and she immediately made arrangements with the seller's realtor to get the remotes and overnight them to me since I was again traveling out of town prior to moving into the condo. In closing, it has been a true pleasure working with Lisa. This has been an emotional transition for me. The house I sold was the home I owned with my new husband whom I lost to cancer a little more than a year after we were married. Lisa's caring and positive, professional manner helped me get through what might have been much more difficult. Lisa has simply been a joy and I wholeheartedly recommend her! Thank you, Lisa!""

"Lisa helped us buy a condo. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped with every part of the process. She made herself available anytime we needed her. She always gave an honest opinion on everything even if it was a negative which was awesome. She gave 100% to make sure we found exactly what we were looking for and not just settle. Once we found our condo she helped us get it for a great price. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and I will totally use her in the future for our next house."
"Lisa has done an excellent job in helping us find our new home. She is very knowledgeable about the current market status and helped us find a perfect house within our price range. She is well versed and able to answer any questions about the entire process from showing us houses and writing the offer all the way to closing and beyond. She has many contacts and a great network of professionals whom she works with to get what you need promptly. Our purchase will close in just over a month thanks to her motivation and excellence. We will call Lisa again, if we ever have real estate needs in the future."
"I highly recommend Lisa. Her experience, knowledge of the market and genuine desire to meet our needs were evident in every meeting we had with her. She was able to get our house to contract within 5 days of listing and negotiated a final sale that was 96 % of our listing. Amazing considering other houses in our area had been on the market for months!"
