Clients are saying:
"My husband and I (and our two year old) met Florence at an open house when we were just beginning our home search. Her kindness and enthusiasm stood out from other agents we encountered, and I knew immediately I wanted her to be our agent.
Florence's extensive knowledge of our areas of interest helped make the daunting process of house shopping stress-free. She really got to the core of what we were looking for, both in home and area. She is fast to respond, highly-organized, and has a great sense of humor.
Most importantly to me, Florence comes with a long list of referrals. This was a big deal as we are new in the area. If you need anyone for anything, Florence knows someone who comes with recommendations. I interviewed a long list of architects and builders and the one we chose was a recommendation from Florence’s former client. I couldn’t be happier with their work. She is well connected and wealth of information. Thank you Florence!"
"My wife, son and I were blessed to have Florence as our agent. It’s odd though, to refer to Florence as our agent because from day 1, she was more like a caring friend/family member. She had a meaningful response to every question we had, and was on point with concerns or issues to matters we weren’t even aware of. Florence is a great listener, and to that end, her recommendations always checked all of our boxes.
She was in constant contact, from the beginning to even after closing. I do not know where her energy comes from, but it is truly refreshing to know someone who can spin all the plates of home buying consistently and constantly. Home buying can be very stressful. But Florence made it fun, exciting and a happy experience! I’m recommending her to everyone I meet!"
"Florence is not only a great agent but a wonderful person. She goes above and beyond to help you find what you're looking for. I am tough to please but the moment I met her I felt really comfortable and was able to tell she was really genuine. Her positive energy makes a stressful process of home buying exciting.
Florence is a great problem solver, she will find creative solutions to your problems and is super responsive to any questions or concerns you have without making you feel silly. She is also very organized and follows up with every little detail so that you don't miss anything. She is still checking up on our family to make sure we are settling in okay.
I highly highly 1000% recommend her, especially if you are a first time home buyer!"
"I want to take a moment to appreciate Florence for the wonderful realtor that she is and for being a good friend to us. We met her through one of our friends when we were looking to rent a place around Arlington Heights. But we later decided to buy a place. Florence was very useful and quick in taking us through all the processes to buy a house and connecting us with right people. She was also very familiar with neighborhood and helped us to get used to the place.
I am writing this review to say she has been incredibly helpful when we decided to sell the house since we had to move to Seattle for job reasons. She helped us with all the details for selling the house: staging the house, finding the right photographer and putting it for sale in various sites. We had to move even before the house was on the market. She took care of everything in our absence, constantly checking on our house and fixing small issues etc... Well we sold the within 2 weeks that it was listed. All the credit goes to Florence.
She is a good friend to us and I will recommend her to anyone who is looking for a house near the Chicago Northwest neighborhoods."
"This is the second time I've used Florence Lee. She assisted in selling my townhome and purchasing a new home. Thank you for your patience working with us Florence, we definitely would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell their property."
