Clients are saying:
"Mary Beth has closed two real estate transactions for me. Mary Beth is quite knowledgeable and diligent! She is also a master negotiator. I would highly recommend Mary Beth, and seek her expertise again for any future Real Estate needs."
"I have worked with Mary Beth on two separate occasions, once to sell a home and once to purchase a home. Having sold homes 3 times and purchased 4 times, Mary Beth has been the one to make both sides of the transaction go more smoothly than any other realtor I have worked with. She has spoken to numerous friends to offer advice, and recently provided a seamless purchase for a friend of mine as well. I offer her information without hesitation whenever I know of someone looking for a realtor."
"Mary Beth has an incredible grasp of the Real Estate market in Chicago, She is organized, dependable, and patient. Her communication skills are superb-always timely and "on point". She is highly intuitive- the two offers we received were from "very interested" buyers. She is amazingly flexible, and provided us with gentle guidance throughout the sales process. I provide her contact information whenever I encounter anyone in need of a realtor."
"Mary Beth is the absolute best realtor I have had the pleasure to work with. I have bought and sold many properties in my life and once I met Mary Beth to sell my house due to a company relocation during the financial crisis, she did a fantastic job. So good, that when I was relocated again, I immediately and exclusively thought and used her again to buy a house. It was a very tough buyers market and she went above and beyond what I would ever expect to find a house we love. She is so skilled at the process, it makes buying a house as easy as I have ever experienced - even in these time of new and changing regulatory changes. I always recommend Mary Beth to friend and colleagues."
"I was quite pleased with Mary Beth's handling of the sale of my mothers condo after her passing. The knowledge of the realities of the marketplace and the awareness of the carrying cost helped us through this difficult process. As importantly her personal touch to deal with a lot of difficult personalities (including myself lol) and extreme patience with us made the whole thing most satisfying. There are a lot of realtors out there but how they treat you and keep you timely informed distinguishes Mary Beth from all the others."
