Clients are saying:
"We worked with Renee on a move from Philadelphia to Chicago. She was so responsive, knowledgable of the Chicago area, and very intelligent. We were so confident in her that we signed on a property without seeing it firsthand. Renee took us through several properties on FaceTime and helped us think through the positives and negatives of each property. She is an intelligent negotiator and truly a pleasure to work with. We will definitely use Renee again and highly recommend her."
"Renee was extremely helpful for us when finding a place in River North to my roommate and I who are new to the area. She has great knowledge of Chicago as well as quick response time and efficient communication with apartments."
"Renee was very responsive, proactive, professional, knowledgeable, resourceful and enjoyable to work with! We had an executed lease in less than a week for higher than we listed!!"
"Renee is terrific. I have bought houses before so I know a good, competent agent when I see one. She is smart, savvy, and has sophisticated taste. Not only does she know her way around a condo, but she also knows the city. This was an important consideration for my home buying experience since I was unfamiliar with the area. She artfully assisted us in negotiating an offer during COVID and always acted in our best interests. She professionally handled those dramatic moments that sometimes occur between buyer and seller. I would use Renee again for future real estate transactions. If you are serious about buying a home, Renee is serious about selling you one."
"Renee was extremely helpful in helping my husband and I buy our first home. She walked us through the whole buying process step by step at first and supported us through each step as we got to it as you can imagine buying a first home is stressful/exciting. She is passionate, very quick to respond, had put our best interest first and is someone we will definitely be recommending to our friends and family who may be looking to buy a home."
