Clients are saying:
"Michele has been excellent to work with. Not only has she helped scout out a location with me but she worked above and beyond in negotiating prices. Furthermore, there were some initial issues with the landlord that she helped resolve with me.
Michele has been very quick to respond to messages and is always looking to accommodate the clients needs. It was reassuring to have someone with the knowledge and experience in both the finding and selecting of places to live."
"We had 48 hours to find a place to live in Chicago and the only reason we found a place we LOVE was because of Michele.
We flew in early Saturday morning and met up with Michele who had scheduled an almost superhuman number of listings into one afternoon (including a listing we discovered Friday evening) and we arrived at a decision by the same evening. She understood our taste, showed us places we loved, places we picked out, and places even better than what we would've thought to look for. She was especially caring about finding a good place for our dog and the house we went with ended up being her recommendation. We had little-to-no frame of reference for the market in Chicago. She told us when we could do better, when units were over-priced, and offered other insights along the way. We were also thankful for her savvy in skillfully handling/negotiating our rental application, ensuring that we weren't throwing away money on any listing where we didn't really have a shot. After we signed the lease for our #1 choice listing, Michele followed up and made every step of the process smooth; all the way down to keys and utilities.
I can't recommend Michele highly enough. She is thoroughly professional and exceptionally skilled."
"Michele is an amazing broker! She was well prepared on the day of the showings, she even snuck in a surprise listing and before I entered she said "this will be your new home". Well, she was right as that's the apartment I ended up choosing. She clearly listened to my needs and went above and beyond to make sure I got what I was after. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and prompt with her replies. She was not only professional, knowledgeable, and great to work with, but also a lot of fun. You’ll be lucky to have Michele as your broker, I highly recommend her!"
"Michele is full fledge awesome!! Came onboard in a middle of a crunched timeline and delivered like none other. Would highly recommend her to any looking to seriously move within the Chicago area. She knows her stuff and is on top of her game."
"Michele helped us find a great rental apartment in Chicago. We are new to the area, and so she helped us understand the neighbourhoods based on what we like / don't like. She was very patient with our endless list of "wants" and we found a great place to live!"
