Clients are saying:
"Michele was wonderful to work with. I started working with Michele a year prior to moving to Chicago. Being both a first time buyer and new to the city, I had many questions about anything and everything. Michele was patient and responsive, and she went above and beyond to discover what I was looking for, even when I myself could not articulate what I wanted.
She was incredibly flexible when it came to scheduling. I flew to Chicago for 48 hours with very little notice and Michele was able to schedule all showings in one afternoon, including scheduling a couple additional showings on the day of upon my request. At each showing, she had an incredible eye for detail and asked the right questions. When it came time to put in an offer, she was an excellent negotiator and with her help, I found the perfect home for the perfect price.
Since closing, Michele has continued to help. Since I currently live out of state, Michele has been there for inspections, walkthroughs, and renovations on my behalf.
I can say without a doubt that Michele's dedication to and advocacy on behalf of her clients is unmatched and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Michele is a highly competent and knowledgeable real estate professional who always looks out for her clients' best interests. It was a joy working with her through the entirety of the buying process, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a high-quality agent in the Chicago area."
"I moved to the city a month and a half ago, and was absolutely terrified. I had no clue where to start. My cousin recommended Michele, and I don’t know where I would be if he hadn’t. Michele turned something daunting and overwhelming into a fun and exciting experience. She knows everything there is to know about each neighborhood, and made sure that I found a place that was perfect for me and met every need I didn’t even know I had. Her patience and positive attitude are unwavering, and she puts her whole heart and soul into finding the perfect fit. She took care of every loose end and addressed every concern I had before I could even bring it up, and got me an INCREDIBLE deal on the perfect apartment. She was with me every step of the way, and still reaches out to make sure everything is going great. After I signed the place, she came to my neighborhood to show me around- where to park, what cool things there are to do in the neighborhood, events that are going on in the area- everything. I seriously don’t have the words to describe what an incredible help she has been and continues to be, and I could not recommend her highly enough!"
"My son and I thoroughly enjoyed having Michele serve as our real estate agent in purchasing a condominium along the Lakefront in Chicago. She was not just excellent at doing what she should as our agent; she also was creative and worked hard to stay ahead of the process and help drive it to closure very-+ professionally. I highly recommend her!"
"I had pretty high standards with a pretty low budget. It took a long time to find the right place, including several almost deals gone wrong. I'm a novice renter at best, and I'm sure my naïveté was very frustrating at times as well. But Michele stuck with me through the whole process with remarkable perseverance.
When landlords were trying to take advantage or discriminate, she was quick to call them on it and display a formidable knowledge of renters' rights.
She was also very helpful in negotiations, even protecting me from my own caprice when I thought offering more money might help secure a lease. She knew when this was a good idea and when it was simply a waste of money.
And most importantly, I ended up with a great apartment. I recommend Michele for anyone looking to rent in Chicago."
