"Karrin was such an asset to us in the purchase of our new home. She helped us every step of the way, and I’m confident we got a great deal because of her skill. She is on top of all the details and made sure that nothing fell through the cracks with all of the work that needed to be completed prior to closing. She put us in touch with some honest, talented contractors for the things we needed done and all of their work has been top notch. She knows the Chicago market well and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home! She will help you get your next home at a fair price"
"Karrin was great from the start. I met her through a listing I had found online and when I asked if she would like to help me we met and discussed all of my needs. She was knowledgeable in all aspects of the buying and searching process. She was persistent when needed yet not pressing. My experience was overall personal and never felt like it was just about selling. She truly wanted what was best for me."
"Karrin is the kind of realtor who provides just the right amount of attentiveness while giving you space to make your own decisions. We had an aggressive closing time frame, and Karrin put us in touch with a mortgage banker who got it done for us. She also helped us line up an inspector, and coordinated with the attorneys to resolve the few minor repairs needed. Karrin is knowledgeable and a tough negotiator. She knows where market values are throughout a wide variety of neighborhoods, which was beneficial in our search. We enjoyed working with her!"
"Karrin was extremely professional, gave good advice about selling the house, and was not only positive, but gave direct suggestions about the of price concerning the selling my Mother’s home. We trusted her and the house sold within two weeks with a cash sale. She clearly read the market, the neighbored, and met our needs. Her intuitive business sense paid off."
"Working with Karrin was an absolute dream come true! My fiancee and I had been having a difficult time finding a space because our needs were so specific, but Karrin showed us several wonderful spaces including one we had tried to tour ourselves, but were unsuccessful at. Karrin got us right in and even had a connection to the leasing company, which we are quite sure helped us get approved! We couldn't be happier and Karrin was thorough, incredibly hard working and a real pleasure to work with! She will be our first call when we decide to pursue something else."
