Clients are saying:
"Maureen is the proverbial "unstoppable force" in many ways. She is exceptionally resourceful and has a work ethic that is difficult to fathom. But where she truly excels are the soft skills, in particular communication and building relationships. We were under contract within 6 days for the highest value in our building's history! ... in no small part due to her diligence and skill in reaching out and following-up with every prospective agent and buyer for our condo multiple times and within hours.
Overall, Maureen has been a valued guide in the sale of our home and as we have looked for a new home in Lincoln Park. And we are fortunate for it."
"I had such a wonderful experience working with Maureen. She knows the Chicago real estate landscape incredibly well. Her knowledge coupled with her thoughtfulness, organization and communication made the entire apt-hunting experience very easy. I will most definitely be working with Maureen in the future as I hunt for new apartments and eventually homes."
"I was very fortunate to have worked with Maureen when looking for a home for my family. She was incredibly knowledgable, organized and diligent, making sure all of our needs were met. She previewed homes for us and only showed us ones that met our specific needs. She negotiated an offer in a bidding situation that secured the home for us. When the inspection report was less than favorable, she immediately found 3 more homes for us to see the same morning. Maureen again negotiated a second successful offer in which we closed within 20 days! Maureen went above and beyond in assisting us in many ways throughout the process including having my girls' bedrooms painted prior to closing. I cannot image a more thoughtful, hard working, or efficient agent to work with. We look forward to working with Maureen again and are referring her to our family and friends!"
"Maureen is a spectacular agent. She works like a dog to find you the right home or to sell your home. There is no "quit" in her and she has a knack for overcoming any obstacles in her way or for finding a middle ground during a tough negotiation. My wife and I are so happy to be working with Maureen."
"I was so fortunate to have worked with Maureen during my apartment hunt. I was searching remotely for my first apartment, and she went above and beyond to ensure that I was well informed before I made a decision. Despite my not being in Chicago, Maureen sent videos, photos, and floor plans of every single unit and building I was interested in, along with a spreadsheet full of information. She was organized and thoughtful, I could not have imagined a better agent to work with. I will most definitely be referring all friends and colleagues to Maureen, and when I am ready to buy, I Iook forward to working with her again."
