Clients are saying:
"I was pleased to work with Mary Beth Malone to sell my luxury Chicago Condo located on the New East Side. Bringing a deep knowledge base of the area's condo market, she conducted an exhaustive property analysis accompanied with listing illustrations and details that I found extremely useful in understanding the sales value of my property and establishing a competitive sell price. Through @Properities' marketing networks, a half-dozen qualified buyers viewed my condo within the first week after listing it. In less than three weeks, we had a wonderful, cash offer and closed in just a month! Mary Beth and her @Properties team couldn't have been more thorough, professional and responsive in making for a smooth negotiating, contracting and closing processes. I highly recommend both Mary Beth and @Properties to buyers and sellers to ensure a professionally manged real estate transaction.-Loop/New East Side Seller"

Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, considerate, available at a moments notice. Mary Beth quickly helped us to hone our search to a "fit", tailor made for us. We quickly made an offer and closed the deal! This team is the virtual gold standard for what real estate agents should be like. Don't hesitate, give them a call and see if they are a fit for you-Gold Coast Buyer"

They saw our condo, made suggestions on how it could show well, priced it perfectly, and it sold in two weeks ! Their suggestions/advice from start to finish was spot on. The buyers liked them as much as we do - that's a testimonial-Streeterville Seller"
"With our growing family, it was time to upgrade in size. Kathleen and Mary Beth helped us quickly sell our two bedroom condo in the loop and assisted in closing on our dream house in Old Irving Park. They made the experience very personal while always remaining professional. They were very respectful of the time and efforts we spent rehabbing our condo and worked hard to get us a great price,(highest on record for a 2 BR in the building). We were very impressed with Kathleen and Mary Beth and highly recommend them for your real estate needs-Printer's Row Seller"
