Clients are saying:
"Grace recently helped us sell our condo. She was wonderful in giving us advice in prepping the condo to sell which clearly worked as we got 4 offers on its first day on the market. I'd highly recommend working with Hrace. She's responsive and will help you get the best offer."
"Grace was a huge help to my wife and I as we bought our first home together in Evanston. Grace was there to guide and advise us throughout the whole process, without being overbearing. When we found a townhouse that was still in the process of being constructed, Grace provided us with timely pricing data on similar homes in the area to give us confidence that we were getting a good price on the home we selected. Grace formed good working relationships with the seller's agent, and with our attorney, and she used those relationships to help make the process of purchasing a "construction in process" home as smooth as possible. Grace is knowledgeable, personable, and she genuinely cares about her clients. I would recommend Grace to anyone looking for a real estate agent."
"Grace is the most exceptional realtor we could have ever asked for. She is a very intelligent woman who had answers to every one of our questions and queries (and if she did not know something immediately she would always do research and get back to us ASAP). Her integrity and honesty is extremely admirable. My husband and I felt like we could trust her completely, and we were so grateful for her hard work, patience, kindness, and expertise at every step of this process. To get into more details let me explain that we approached her and asked for a Single Family Home....on the north side...of all Chicago......My husband and I hopped from neighborhood to neighborhood in the beginning, then thought maybe we’d do a 2 Flat , then back to a SFH again. Grace patiently and professionally guided us to what we needed and wanted. She helped us clarify by asking us smart questions, and opened our eyes to the reality of the market. We bid on several properties during a crazy spring/early summer market that were ALL multiple bids, and not just 2 or 3 bids, but a few as many as 5 or 6. It was intense and stressful but she guided us wisely (and saved us from seriously overpaying in the frenzy). In the end we found the perfect house for the perfect price in the perfect location. Grace was amazing. And after seeing scores of houses and meeting scores of other realtors in the process, my husband and I feel like we really struck gold with Grace. I could not recommend her enough!"
"Grace is an exceptional agent. We looked at countless properties for nearly a year and she never showed one sign of impatience with us. She knows the area in and out, and gave us great guidance when it came time to make a bid. Highly recommended!"
"Grace helped us with the sale of our home and in looking for a new house. She was a godsend in both situations. When selling our home she was very helpful in what needed to be done for the home to be as marketable as possible. When looking for a new home, Grace never wasted our time. We actually seriously considered every home she showed us. Grace is knowledgeable and hard working, but the most important is that she treats people with kindness and respect."
