Clients are saying:
"I doubt that you will find a realtor more knowledgeable about condominiums in the city than Renee. She's very detailed oriented, specifically understands condo regulations & documentation and knows all the right questions to ask. I found Renee to be not just an agent, but my best advocate - thorough, persistent, responsive and not afraid to delve into the nitty gritty details and go the extra mile. I will definitely be recommending her to anyone I know looking for a new home!"
"Next time I need real estate in Chicago Renee Lewis will be my first call. Renee is amazingly PATIENT with an eye for detail. She listens to her clients and picks up on the cues of what they like and dislike to find the best fit. She is an absolute advocate for her clients and is both professional and communicative."
"Renee was fantastic. She was exactly what I would hope for in a realtor. It was very important to me that my agent attend every showing and not just leave a lock box for the potential buyers' agents to gain access to the home. I wanted a realtor who would take an active role in selling my home and acting as a salesperson. Renee did exactly that and was extremely enthusiastic and helpful throughout the short time it took her to sell my home."
"We would recommend Renee to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate on the north side of the city. The fact that she lives on the near north side gave her perspective to talk insightfully about River North, Gold Coast and Old Town. She must have shown us 25+ places over 60 days, allowing us to make an informed choice that we're excited about. She was always on time. She is organized, confirming all appointment in advance. And she asked questions that we wouldn't have thought to ask. We couldn't be more pleased."
"We had a great experience with Renee Lewis of @Properties on the sale of our condo. Renee was knowledgeable and professional in managing our account. Our condo was under contract in 3 days after listing; and Renee negotiated our contract for the asking price. Renee was patient and responsive in answering our questions and concerns. She was very detailed oriented, and guided us from listing to closing, making the whole process seamless."
