Clients are saying:
"We are so grateful to Katie for guiding us to our forever home. She makes you feel taken care of throughout the home buying process, providing honest counsel and smart neighborhood insights. She’s super responsive and a great listener - which is important as sometimes you just need to think out loud! We never felt rushed or pressured. She is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients. Making such a massive life decision is stressful - we felt much more confident as part of Team Katie!"
"We were introduced to Katie by a family friend. We had a preliminary conversation about area, what we were looking for, schools and child care, budget, and more. From this one conversation, she helped us narrow our scope and set up our first visit to the area. The night before we were to tour homes with Katie, we saw a newly listed house to ask Katie about during our time together. On the morning of our tours, one house came off the list to visit and, unbeknownst to us, she had already replaced it with this newly listed house. She was that aware of our taste and interests.
We went on the site visit and had an interest in two homes. She was so patient and provided such great counsel to us as we worked through which home to bid on and pricing. Katie's market knowledge was a tremendous benefit to us throughout the entire process. I firmly believe that without Katie's input, we would never have bid on what is now our forever home.
Beyond Katie's awareness of the market, Katie is invaluable in her knowledge of schools, neighborhoods, the park district, and neighbors. She introduced us to people on our block prior to us even owning the home so that we could ask questions, feel more knowledgeable about the area, and begin making new connections.
She genuinely cares about helping her clients even after the home has been purchased. I cannot say enough good things about Katie as a realtor and as a person."
"We used Katie to buy our first condo five years ago and again this year to buy a new home and sell our condo-we wouldn't think of working with anyone else. She has great market knowledge and experience that helped us to narrow our search and was always available to answer the (many) questions we had. When difficult situations arose, we could count on her to fight for us and at the same time keep the situation in perspective. We have not hesitated to recommend her to friends and will continue to do so!"
"My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Katie as our real estate agent.
We executed our purchase remotely and with limited market knowledge. Katie could not have been more helpful throughout the process and was exceptional at doing all of the little things to get the sale across the finish line while we were 1000 miles away.
She has our highest recommendation"
"We were so incredibly happy working with Katie to purchase our new home. Katie listened to our needs and spent a long day showing us properties that could work. We found the right house for us on day one. Katie has great knowledge of the Chicago and north shore markets and was able to point us in the right direction at just the right time. She took the time to get to know both myself and my husband and was with us every step of the way through the search, inspections, and negotiations, always on top of communication with all parties involved. Thanks to Katie we got the right house for us at a great price. We highly recommend Katie, and although we have no plans on going anywhere soon, if we did, we would use her again no questions asked!"
