"We moved to the La Grange area from abroad. We were very lucky to have Annie represent us. Her local knowledge and connections of the La Grange community is second to none. Her communication was exceptional, even given the time zone difference. Her attention to detail and follow up put us at ease. She jumped over hurdles and got us into the house that we wanted in the location that we wanted. You can't ask for more than that! Highly recommend!"
"Anne is an amazing real estate agent who went above and beyond to help us sell our house. I can honestly say we would have never been able to buy our dream house without her. We wanted to list in August which was not the best market, but she helped us with staging and did a ton of work to determine the best marketing and pricing strategy for the sale of our home. During the sale process, she was available 24/7 to answer our questions or get on a call with the buyers' broker. Her marketing strategy was out of this world! With Anne's expertise, we were able to find a buyer and get under contact within 72 hours of listing at a price that exceeded our expectations. Thanks for everything Anne!"
