Clients are saying:
"As first time home buyers my wife and I were nervous about the home buying process. We had met several agents in the past and wanted an seasoned advisor who could give us trustworthy real estate advice in the Western Springs area, put os at ease about the purchasing process, all while putting our needs before their own. We met Carrie through the recommendation of a friend and have had an excellent experience working with her. It’s clear Carrie is a hardworking, seasoned professional, with a ton of industry knowledge. Carrie cares deeply about her clients and wants to ensure you are pleased with the entire experience. Highly recommended!"
"I have worked with Carrie on 3 transactions. We purchased our starter home in Downers Grove from Carrie back in 2006, then our second home in LaGrange in 2012. We recently bought an income property through Carrie and she was instrumental in helping navigate a tricky foreclosure. Once we closed on the home, Carrie was able to refer multiple contractors to us and give us ideas on how best to rehab the home. Her knowledge and expertise was invaluable. We then used Carrie to find a tenant for the home. I highly recommend her!"
"Carrie is really great to work with! She is on top of every detail and goes above and beyond with any help! She is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I highly recommend her."
"From the very start we knew that with Carrie we were in good hands. It was obvious Carrie knew exactly what was needed to market our property - from staging our home to choosing the right paint color, she was hands on and available at all times. Carrie is experienced, professional, hardworking and quite honestly fun to work with. She made the process less stressful with her energy and great attitude! Finally, she's a local resident, so her resources both during the process and after have been a huge plus."
"Carolyn made a stressful experience very easy; first by selling our home and then finding a new home for us. From the very first time she spoke to us regarding selling I knew we were in good hands. On top of that she had all these great ideas of how to maximize the potential of the home we chose. Her experience saved us a lot of time and money, and on top of that we had fun working with her!"
