Clients are saying:
"Tedi sold my East Rogers Park townhouse in a week! It was sort of a complicated process as we were separating the townhouse from its parking spot for the sale, but Tedi handled the entire situation like a true professional. She is organized, motivated, and her skills and knowledge are excellent. I would highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling or have any other real estate needs."
"I am very impressed with my experience working with Tedi Smola. I was under a 3-week time crunch to find a place to live in Chicago, and was moving long distance from Missoula, Montana. She is very affable, and was indefatigable in showing me potential places. We looked at about 30 in four days. When the one I selected to make an offer on went contingent just as we were to submit the offer, she continued to look at other places on my behalf while I was back home, and, based on the experience she had gleaned from my reactions to the initial set of properties we saw together, chose one that met my needs admirably.
In addition, she is well connected and has made recommendations for other professional services to facilitate the home buying process. Tedi grew up in Chicago and knows the area well, and has made recommendations for places to visit and shop, and they are all spot on.
It is my pleasure to give Tedi an unequivocally favorable review."
"I absolutely love Tedi! She helped me with a very difficult sale. When I told her I was going to walk away from my property and go into foreclosure, she remained positive and gave me hope. I'm sure I stressed her out, yet she remained supportive and utilized her resources to get my condo sold. I would definitely refer Tedi to everyone I know."
"Tedi was instrumental to our success in getting our new home! She's personable, quick-to-respond to correspondence, and highly knowledgeable. My fianceé and I were aspiring first-time homeowners and had a tight deadline to find a condo before our apartment lease was up, and she was crucial to our success. She provided resources and recommendations to us so we could quickly and successfully find a home inspector and a real estate attorney. She responded immediately to our texts and phone calls, and she made herself available for tours around the clock based on our scheduling needs. Additionally, she ensured we stayed on top of our closing deadline by reminding us to sign and fill out forms by certain dates. We could not have done it without her and would recommend to anyone looking to buy in the Chicago area."
"We had a negative experience with a realtor before and we’re nervous to do it again. Sometimes it can feel like realtors just want to sell you on any and everything because they want the business (which I can understand, but obviously is scary as a buyer). Tedi could not have been more different. She’s honest, clear, kind and funny. She was very helpful through the process of selling our place and buying a new place (where we had a lot of stipulations!). She worked through it all with us and was literally available to us hourly (no joke!) until we found a place we loved. Tedi also saw how stressful it was a mom (she’s a mom too!) with young kids and brought me coffee to showings. :-)
She knowledgeable about the processes and walks you through it. Your realtor should be someone you feel comfortable with and know that they care about helping you and your family. Tedi is wonderful and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell and buy! We LOVED her!"
