Clients are saying:
"THE BEST home buying experience we have ever had (and this is our 4th home purchase)! Ilene loves her job... which in turns makes you really enjoy the home buying experience and at no point did we ever feel like we were not important to her! Ilene was super patient, very knowledgeable and was always there to answer any calls, emails or questions we had. I felt like she always had our best interests as a top priority. She helped us in every aspect of the process from start to finish. I love her honesty and the fact that whenever there was a home I was interested in viewing, she made it happen within hours! I know that there are many realtors out there, but I believe if you want the best, Ilene is the person to help you with your home buying or selling experience. She has become much more than just a realtor to us... a friend! We couldn't be any happier! @properties is very lucky to have such an amazing broker/ realtor!"
"Nice and efficient to work with Ilene. Good communication as well."
"What an amazing experience I had with Ilene! She had great suggestions as to things I should do to help my house sell quicker and for a better price. It worked! Before my search we discussed what I wanted in a townhouse. She had some great ideas to add. She was able to show me townhouses in my price range, and I never felt as though she was pushing for me to spend more. She listened to my likes and dislikes so I could find the perfect home. Once we found the perfect home, her input was invaluable in the negotiations as well as decorating ideas. Even though I was under contract, she went the extra mile to help me choose colors for painting. For such a stressful event, Ilene was always there with words of wisdom and encouragement. I would definitely recommend using her for a house sale or purchase. I am extremely happy with my new home and couldn't have done it without Ilene's help!"
"Ilene is an amazing realtor! We sold our home in three weeks with Ilene(after previously listing it twice with another agent) . I thought our home was ready to show, but Ilene staged our home and it couldn't have looked better! She also helped us find our dream home. She was patient, persistent and the voice of reason when helping us make our decision. Plus she is just a really nice person who cares about her clients. She helped us through every step of the way."
"We recently bought a new condo and sold our townhome using Ilene as our agent on both. We couldn't have been more happy with her service! We met Ilene in the summer when on a whim we wanted to check out a listing of hers in downtown Palatine, as my husband and I both had the day off. We hadn't even listed or prepared our existing home and were not at all that serious about moving at that time. We had called another agent that had a listing in that building also and they were unavailable for showings for several days. We then called Ilene expecting the same response, but were happily surprised when she could find time for us that day. That to me was a great indication of the level of care and service she would provide us in the future. We met and felt instantly comfortable with her and over the next couple months we kept in contact and she sent us listings that she thought we might like. There was no pressure at all and in the end we found a beautiful condo with all the bells and whistles we were looking for. She helped us and gave us direction on preparing and fixing up our existing home for listing and in the end we sold it to the first couple that walked through!!! Our gratitude is huge for Ilene! She is professional and caring and willing to go that extra mile for her clients! We highly recommend her for your real estate needs!! Thanks again Ilene!"
