Clients are saying:
"Carey was truly amazing. There are many good realtors around Chicago, but there are NOT many that truly listen and get to know you to fully understand your needs. She not only nailed it with all she was suggesting along the way, but she helped us face hard decisions that put us on track to decide what we were willing to compromise. She knew how important this decision was for our family, and understood the intricacies of the neighborhood we were working in. It wasn't an easy task, but every time she didn't know things immediately, she did through research, evaluated options, talked to a number of experts, and helped us get solutions and ideas that were fulfilling our needs and that showed she sees beyond and can definitely think of side the box. She knows a lot about areas, use of space, renovation and rehabs. If you are a first time home buyer that needs lots of explanation and someone to ask and see things before you even think of them, Carey is your person. If you are buying your 20th home, and you are picky and particular, she is your person too. She will deliver and not only that, you will LOVE working with her during the process. She is warm and inviting, but do not be fooled, she is an excellent negotiator. With Stephanie Lavelle, they are a dream team to work with. So when in doubt, read reviews.. and I hope this one pointed you in the right direction. My family is super thankful."
"Carey was amazing! She is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. Coming from out of state, she was able to do FaceTime viewings of places I was interested in, which was extremely helpful. All in all, she made the process so easy and stress free."
"Carey was so helpful, knowledgeable, kind and professional in her search to find me an apartment. She responded back to all of my questions quick and efficiently. I was moving to Chicago from out of town and took a trip to the city to tour apartments for a quick weekend in May. Carey was so organized when we toured multiple apartments over a day and a half. Carey followed up when I moved into the apartment to make sure I was still happy with my choice and if there was anything she could help me with! I recommended her to one of my friends who was also moving from out of town and she was able to help them find an apartment. I could not recommend Carey enough, I am excited to work with her in the future!"
"If you're looking for a hard-working, knowledgeable, and thoughtful broker, look no further. Carey is the one. Selling my condo was such a pleasant experience with Carey. She worked so hard and went above and beyond to make sure the process went smoothly so that I didn't have to worry while I was at work or out of town or be running here and there. She not only made the process painless but she also got me the absolute best price $$$ which was the cherry on top of everything. When I move back to Chicago in the future, Carey will be the one I'll be calling! Thank you Carey!"
"We can't thank Carey enough for all the hard work, dedication and time she spent in helping us find our perfect condo! Throughout the process she was extremely professional, attentive to detail and incredibly easy to work with. We felt confident with her guidance from day one as she is a straight shooter and was extremely honest with us every step of the way. She offered excellent advice, answered every question and helped us make informed decisions.
We would highly recommend Carey to anyone seeking a truly professional (and fun!) realtor who will always keeps her clients interests at heart! Thank you, Thank you!"
