Clients are saying:
"It has been a real pleasure to work with Beverly. My husband and I were really new to the Chicagoland when we decided to look for a home. We are so glad to have met Beverly, who literally handheld us through the process of being first time buyers in a new market. She often says "That when people are well informed, they make better decisions" and she makes sure to provide as much information and insights as she can for a smoother decision-making process. We were looking for a house in the highly competitive West Loop area at a highly competitive price point. When we found a place we really liked, Bev was able to step in and drive an impressive negotiation that worked for all parties involved and helped us the house!
She is incredibly insightful, seasoned and just the best agent we could have asked for. We highly recommend working with her if you are considering buying your next house."
"As a first time seller, I didn't know what to expect but Beverly made the process seamless! Her extensive knowledge of current market trends and indicators allowed us to price my condo to sell - and sell it did! - in less than 2 days and over market price! She was always there with support and advice and made sure everyone stayed informed - and accountable! - throughout the process. Plus, she is such a lovely person it is just a pleasure to be in her company. I would not hesitate to recommend Beverly Bahm for your real estate needs."
"I am writing this note to express my extreme satisfaction with Beverly Bahm. I learned of her from an internet search looking for Chicago condos or lofts. I decided to email a question regarding a condo listing that I found on a website. After submitting a request for more information, Beverly contacted me and we decided to meet and look at some property listings in Chicago.
From the start, I liked Beverly. Not only was Beverly courteous, positive, and professional, but she listened carefully to my needs and worked with me and my already busy schedule in setting up property viewings. Beverly and I looked a long time until I found the perfect place, but she always kept a positive attitude and she never thought I should settle for something that didn't meet my wants or needs. Beverly was very flexible, and she organized our property viewings around my needs and time constraints. She even picked me up from work and drove me back to work on a regular basis. During the viewings, Beverly took care to get information about the property and record my thoughts or questions about the place. I always felt secure that Beverly was looking out for me and making sure that we got the right place and the best deal possible. Beverly was careful to let me form my own opinions, but she provided her insight and experience to help me make better decisions.
It was Beverly's personal attention, accompanied by a lot of patience that made viewing many properties and ultimately finding one, a lot easier. Beverly's great positive attitude, diligent work ethic, and attention to detail always made me feel confident and comfortable working with her throughout this whole process. Beverly was professional with everyone we dealt with while searching for properties and she attended to every detail throughout every step of the closing as well. Beverly communicated with the sellers, the seller's attorney, the condo association, my lender, my lawyer, and me. At all times I felt comfortable knowing that Beverly was on my side, looking out for my best interests, and coordinating everything every step of the way for me. Beverly's easeful concern for her clients, patience and positive outlook, and wonderful people skills help make her a great real estate agent. I would highly recommend Beverly Bahm to friends, family, or colleagues that are looking for property. In fact, I have had the opportunity now to say that I have recommended Beverly to at least three friends, who all have bought homes in Chicago, and even the suburbs of Chicago, with the help of Beverly!"
"I highly recommend Beverly Bahm if you are looking to buy or sell a home. After searching for a little over a year, I finally found the perfect place, and it wouldn't have happened without Beverly!"
"Working with Beverly Bahm has been a pleasure. Knowing the Beverly actually listened to our needs was a relief while we were in the long process of purchasing our first property. We have no complaints, only praise. I received Dream Town property listings through email that allowed me to search and calculate when I had free time, which helped narrow down our search."
