"I was a first time home seller that luckily found a wonderful realtor that made the entire process extremely painless. Carrie brought a level of experience that allowed me to be worry free at every step along the way. I am truly thankful for her diligent hard work. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone wanting a realtor who is willing to go above and beyond that of other top realtors."
"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!"
"Carrie listed two homes for me and helped me buy 3 homes in the western suburbs and Chicago. Her knowledge of the area is excellent. She is professional and efficient in her search for homes that fit my needs. Carrie's ability to negotiate based on my limits and requirements is outstanding. I highly recommend Carrie as she is a caring realtor who gets the job done successfully."
"We were looking for a house that we could purchase as an investment at a reasonable price. Carrie was way ahead of the game, showing us properties that were so new to market that the ink was barely dry on the listings. Her knowledge of the market in the Chicago western suburbs allowed us to quickly get the deal we wanted. Carrie is thoroughly professional and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends and associates."
"I was recently relocated to Chicago for a new job. My husband grew up in NW suburbs and I had lived in the city previously for 7 years. We decided to explore western suburbs on an open house day and met Carrie showing one of her homes in Western Springs. We knew after talking to her she had a tremendous amount of knowledge in that area and that we would be challenged to find the space we wanted within our budget. Carrie is extremely professional, dedicated and available. She knocked on doors asking about opportunities for us and would do the legwork and preview properties before she put it on our list as a potential. She knew my schedule was limited and always worked around what we needed and at the end of it all found a home for us that is absolutely perfect in every way. Her experience as a builder is extremely helpful as well if you look for new construction or need help assessing renovation potential. I have found in today's digital world, it's fairly difficult to get personal customer service and that's exactly what Carrie delivers. She was determined to find my family a home and worked for it in every way. Her integrity is amongst the highest I've seen with realtors."
