Clients are saying:
"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."
"Tracy was our agent 10 years ago when we purchased our new house. When it came time to sell that home recently, we contacted Tracy immediately. She remembered details about our home and purchase that we had long forgotten. She gave great, thoughtful guidance throughout the process and was clearly invested in delivering the best outcome to us. The best part is that she had an accepted offer on our house in 10 days!"
"Eight years ago, Tracy helped us to find a high rise rental for our growing family upon moving to Chicago and recently guided us through the purchase of our new condo in downtown Chicago. We were repeat customers because Tracy provided thorough, attentive, and professional service. Tracy was able to accommodate my husbands very chaotic schedule and never refused a request to view properties or answer our questions at off times. Tracy is an experienced real estate agent and extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. She was able to provide resources and advice every step of the way. It was a pleasure to work with her."
"We feel very fortunate to have had Tracy as our broker. She sold our condo. I know that for a fact - we had 2 brokers before Tracy and didn't get a nibble. Tracy had lots of new, innovative, and effective ideas on who to market our condo to and how to reach the different markets. She left no stone unturned. And sure enough...the buyer of our unit was in the target market Tracy had identified and devised a strategy to get in front of. In addition to being a strategic and savvy marketer, she's also a skilled negotiator. And on top of all that - she's an absolute delight to work with."
"You are not only great at what you do, but you are a wonderful person as well! I could not have asked for more in a realtor. Your thoroughness, attention to detail and professionalism are tops. I feel so fortunate to have had you on my side."
