Clients are saying:
"Megan helped us buy our first condo in Chicago, a gorgeous 2 bedroom with a roof deck the full length of the building, absolutely everything and MORE, she NAILED IT. 6 years and a two year old later, she sold our condo after just 3 weeks on the market and ONE BRILLIANT SHOWING! It was incrrdible. This miracle was NOT A CONCIDENCE! Megan worked tirelessly by networking with her fellow brokers, following up with interested parties on line, and ultimately scouted out our buyer. Truly, an incredible professional endeavor. Her approach to real estate is strategic and realistic. Megan identified the BUYER PROFILE for our condo, and worked with such precision we were under contract before anyone ever asked us "how's the sale going". IT WAS DONE!
It was incredible to work with Megan. She brought out the BEST in us as sellers, she highlighted and focused on the BEST qualities of our listing, and we always felt we were her top priority. We have recommended her over and over again and forever will."
"Megan is an A-plus broker! She is first and foremost an OUTSTANDING communicator. We always knew exactly what was up with all of the various people in our lives throughout the selling process - and if we got mixed signals from anyone she always asked for clarification. She took the high road, advocated for us like we're family, stayed one step ahead, and kept our sale on a positive track - in countless ways. Her work ethic is off the charts and she has been a delight to be with through our entire process. We are so glad we reached out to her when we first thought about selling. We count ourselves among Megan's biggest fans!"
"Megan is amazing! I don't have enough good things to say about her. Our deal would not have gotten done without her. She was a pleasure to work and knew the ins and outs of the industry. Also, her personal relationships within the industry were central to understanding how to navigate the marketplace. She was spot on with her guidance and really listened to us to understand our needs."
"Megan helped us evaluate the sale of an investment property. She was knowledgeable, patient, detail oriented and thoughtful throughout the process. We explored selling a couple times and she walked us through the market dynamics each time. We decided to hold on to the property based on her market advice before finally putting it on the market. Megan secured a quick sale while professionally handling a few bumps that came along during the closing process. We can't recommend her enough and will continue to rely on her for everything we do in Chicago."
"I have worked with Megan on a purchase of two different homes and she has been fantastic both times! She has a ton of experience in negotiating contracts and will always make sure you are getting the best deal (and will let you know when you are not!). Megan specifically negotiated pieces of our contract to help us get a better deal that I did not know would be possible. I would definitely work with Megan again and would recommend her for any purchase/sell in Chicago."
