Clients are saying:
"I have dealt with many realtors over the last 25 years and in different geographical markets including New York city, Long Island, Chicago, Atlanta, Florida and Tennessee. I must admit no one has even come close to Kaari. She is not only amazing at what she does for her clients in fulfilling their real estate needs but goes over and beyond to help them in advise regarding maintenance of the condos and getting local sub contractors if needed to get odd jobs done in the condos. She's truly a gem and we have enjoyed working with her in the Chicago market in lasing our condos through her agency for the past 6 years. Undeniably a stellar real estate agent !!!!!!!!!"
"I can't imagine going through this process without Kaari. From the moment I came to her with my initial "must haves" to the day I officially became a homeowner, Kaari helped me through every part of the process with both unparalleled patience and expertise.
She paid close attention to what I was looking for, sending listings for me to review, promptly scheduled showings every time I requested--and I requested a lot. When I finally found "the one," Kaari was there for me during every single part of the process, answering (and re-answering) questions. She went so far above and beyond--for example, there was a short window of time to drop off the earnest money check in-person, and it happened to be a very busy time at work for me. Kaari didn't want to add to my stress, so she met me at my office in the Loop to pick up the check, and personally dropped it off where it needed to. Talk about full service!
This is the first home I've purchased, which is exciting and nerve-racking all at once. Couple that with closing at the height of the COVID-19 crisis, and I certainly kept Kaari busy. Never once she make me feel like I was bothering her. In fact, she regularly called to check in on me, explain things and assure me that things were going smoothly.
I officially moved into my dream home 1 week ago, and beyond my own enthusiasm, Kaari has been so supportive and genuinely excited for this major milestone for me.
I cannot thank Kaari enough for being there for me every step of the way. The only way I'd ever consider moving again is if I have Kaari there to help me!!"
"Kaari is a consummate professional who shared data and insight every step of the way. Helped this first time home-seller understand the market and the process of selling. Had multiple offers in less than 48 hours. She's great!"
"Kaari is delightful to work with, friendly and very knowledgeable. She was relentless in pursuing options for us to rent. She was also great listing and selling my place. Top notch agent!"
"Kaari was amazing to work with. She is not only knowledgeable, but an organized, clear, concise communicator who deftly handled the curveball I threw her way when I decided to rent my existing home rather than sell it. It could not have gone smoother....Did I mention she stepped in to help me make my selections on my new construction home where her tasteful style was 100% on point."
