Clients are saying:
"Tracy helped me with the purchase of my first condo in Chicago in 2004. Since then, I have referred a large number of friends and colleagues to Tracy. She is a consummate professional, has incredible people skills, is super bright and thoughtful. She understands the Chicago real estate market supremely well and is always striving to anticipate needs and problems as well as be extraordinarily helpful. Tracy helped us to buy the home of our dreams in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis and didn't even flinch. I will continue to refer any and all friends and associates and wholeheartedly recommend Tracy!"
"Tracy is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. She listens to what the client wants, asks all the right questions and finds what you are looking for. Tracy has helped all members of my family for years and I could not be happier with what she has done for me. When I moved from another state she questioned what I was looking for and while I was only renting at first, she found an apartment that met my needs. When I was ready to purchase, she knew exactly what I was looking for and succeeded in finding me just the right condo, in a great location and for the amount that I was interested in spending. Without question, I would highly recommend Tracy for all your real estate needs."
"We have rented, we have bought, we have sold. Whatever our needs have been, Tracy Dillard has been the ideal agent, attending to every detail with care and precision. We are in our dream home because of her. You'd be lucky to find an equal. You won't do better!"
"Over several years, Tracy managed buying and selling homes to live in for us - and for our daughter, a cousin, and a friend. All of us would choose to work with her again!! She is knowledgeable, clear, accessible —a real pro. We have had buying and selling experience with 7 other realtors in 4 other states; and when we settled in Chicago, we found Tracy, and we found home."
"Tracy was superb. Her knowledge of Chicagoland is truly unique and her interest helping us find the best place was truly genuine. We knew we could count on her and she delivered for us on two separate occasions. She knows the real estate business, both rental and sales, quite well and was incredibly flexible in scheduling her time with us. We will use Tracy again and have recommended her to others many times with great success."
