Ann has been selling residential real estate in the Chicago suburbs for the past 24 years.
"Selling and buying property can be an exciting time, yet, understandably, there can be a lot of uncertainty. People are transitioning in many ways. They are beginning a new chapter of their life or they may just want to simplify the lifestyle they currently have. In each case, I feel really honored and grateful to be included in these important conversations. The experience for my clients is about trust and guidance. I am understanding their needs and helping them achieve their goals. I want my clients to know that I have their best interest at heart and that I will walk them through the process with the utmost care and the highest ethics."
Ann has resided in the northwest suburbs of Chicago since 1974 and is extremely familiar with the many surrounding communities of Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Buffalo Grove, Glenview, Northbrook, etc. Ann is married and the mother of three children. She attended St. Louise de Marillac High School, then received her B.A. from Marquette University. She continues to serve in both school and parish functions and is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Illinois Association of Realtors, the North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors, and the Chicagoland multiple listing service, Midwest Real Estate Data, LLC (MRED).

Clients are saying:
"Working with Ann was a pleasure. She was able to assist us in making a quick sale of our house and coordinate purchase of a condo. The pictures and marketing of the house were superb. She was responsive to all our questions and made the whole process run smooth."
"Ann provided excellent service. We decided to list our home, and Ann reviewed and gave us valuable tips as to how to best showcase what we had to offer. She helped us with comparables, pricing, timing, and generally guided us through the process. She was patient, and courteous, and respectful during the crazy time of listing during a pandemic. Our questions were answered promptly, she helped us negotiate with our buyers, and she took a personal interest in our success. I would recommend Ann Ritzenthaler, and would use her services again (in fact, this was not our first time working with Ann... she does a great job!)"
"If you are looking for someone who is truly on your side, Ann is the perfect choice. Ann was fully engaged at every step of the process and went out of her way to make sure I was doing what was right for me. She's genuine, tenacious when she needs to be, and gets the job done."
"Our experience with Ann was nothing short of stellar. There wasn't an issue that she couldn't handle. In our recent move Ann worked with us for weeks before the listing even went up, preparing the house, positioning it for sale on the market. In 4 days from listing we had two offers on our home! (She knows the market and what buyers are looking for and gave us spot-on advice every step of the way.)
Ann worked with every contractor, agent and attorney through the process so professionally - we couldn't have been better represented. She was honest, thoughtful, and kept us well-informed. We have sold 5 houses over 30 years and this was, by far, the best experience of all.
Thank you Ann!!"
