Clients are saying:
"After 13 years of owning a condo in the West Loop, it was time to sell. Working with Kate was the best decision I made. Kate walked me through each step of the process. From choosing which few improvements made the most sense for my sale, to staging & ultimately to deciding the right price to list. When we received multiple offers, she guided me to the best one. Kate is a professional and a joy to work with. She has my highest recommendation!"
"I had an incredibly great experience with Kate! I was not only new to the multi-unit purchasing process but I was a first time buyer all together, and Kate provided an incredible amount of support. She was patient and knowledgeable with a main focus on getting the RIGHT place for me. I purchased a 2-flat in West Bucktown/Logan Square area and I love it! Kate helped me front start to finish, even giving me advice on getting the best tenants possible. I would definitely recommend Kate to a friend and will be going back once it's time to make another purchase:)"
"Kate is amazing! She has been our broker for years and has helped us with multiple properties. She is cheerful, helpful, hardworking with fantastic ideas and great staging skills. She found contractors for us and in general made the selling process much easier. We definitely recommend her."
""Kate is highly talented and the absolute best! Very personable and great at her job. Extremely knowledgeable about the market. I have used her help in selling my condo and recommend her to all of my family, friends and colleagues. She has also given me good real estate advice and helped me with other properties. With respect to my condo, Kate staged it so beautifully that I didn't want to move out after seeing the amazing transformation. I had an infant at the time and left to move out of state. And let me tell you...we left a mess. When we returned to see the place it was just perfect. It sold immediately because of Kate's efforts. She has a good eye, very detail oriented. She has good vision. Kate Taylor is an amazing broker." Angel (River North)"
