Buying or selling a home doesn't have to be a stressful process. A residence is usually a person's single largest investment and at the same time it is the place where our life memories are made.
Having personally bought and sold a number of residences in the city, I have been through what you are going through. I have been on both sides of the table and can empathize with the decisions that comes with making life changes.
I take great pride in creating success for others. I've had a successful career in digital advertising and marketing, working with large companies such as MillerCoors, Motorola and Kraft as a top level project manager. That skillset translates perfectly to coordinating the many details of buying or selling and leading a transaction to a successful closing.
You should know that the process of looking through homes, old, new, rehabbed or investment property is a joy for me. As is the satisfaction in seeing the smile on my client's face when, together, we find the one.
I'm happy to help you whether you need a current equity evaluation of your home, a consultation to learn more about the process of buying or selling, or the current state of investing in property in the Chicagoland area.
Clients are saying:
"We love Hilary! We moved from out of state and hadn't done much exploring before beginning our home search. Hilary was super knowledgable about Chicago and the safety factor of the different parts of town we were considering. Right away she familiarized herself with our hopes, wants and needs. I can't say enough how great it was to work with her! She made home buying feel easy – making appointments for us and referring us to smart, easy-to-work-with and reasonably priced vendors. She even negotiated a price that ended up being cheaper than the final appraisal. We were so lucky to have found Hilary. She's absolutely stellar! If your'e looking for a realtor, go with Hilary. You won't be disappointed!"
"Hilary is awesome to work with! My husband and I are all over the place with whether or not to buy/sell at this time, and Hilary has been such a help during the process. She has been knowledgeable and so helpful with all of our questions/requests without pushing us to do anything we're not comfortable with. We would highly recommend Hilary and look forward to continuing to work with her!"
"As a first time homebuyer, Hilary was able to ease my nerves and address all of my concerns making me feel comfortable every step of the way. She is very diligent, professional, and dedicated to her work. We found the perfect home and closed within 2 months! Her work ethic is incredible and she made the home buying process both fun and seamless. I look forward to working with Hilary again in the future!"
"I had worked with Hilary prior to her real estate experience, so it was a bit of a no brainer when I decided to start looking for a home and needed someone I could trust. We both have project management experience, and I needed someone who was going to entertain my every nuanced question, and be trusted to follow-through. Hilary was great from the start. She took extra time to educate me on every part of the home buying process and put me in touch with trusted vendors (mortgage companies, home inspectors, etc). Every question I could possibly think of, she either answered or hunted it down for me. She knows how to leverage soft skills to facilitate the process, before leaping into the formalities. Hilary was focused, detail-oriented, open to different approaches, knew when to gas and brake with me, and a tireless advocate for me during negotiations."
"Hilary is a thoughtful, competent professional. She had our best interests in mind and was helpful in showing us properties and negotiating our purchase. She was a delight to work with."
