"Entire process from listing price, pictures coordinated, showings smooth and result rented...........ALL in one week!! Thank you!!"

"A great job done and a timely sale for a good price. Communication was very good and updates on the status of the sale progress was very good."

"I couldn't be happier. Meredith priced my condo perfectly so that I received multiple offers and sold quickly."

"Anne and Meredith were amazing. From our initial meeting to set expectations and timeline through closing, I always felt that I was in excellent hands. My condo was only on the market for three days when I got the offer! I've already recommended them to a friend who is selling her place."

"Anne was, and is, terrific. Her knowledge of the area is one of the myriad reasons we chose her and enjoyed working with her. Her knowledge of the whole process is just another reason. She has been very helpful to us through the process and we would definitely recommend her and use her in the future."

"Awesome speed and results, prompt attention, and a happy financial result in a down market amazing."

"We have worked with Anne several times over the last five years on both buying and selling our home andinvesting in property throughout the city, and each time we are bowled over not only by her marketing knowledgeand approach, but her enthusiasm for us as her clients. She makes herself completely accessible, and she nevertires of working the numbers and the details with us, or of answering our endless questions. Because she is sopersonally invested in the Chicago real estate market, we feel she can relate to us on every level."

"Anne was first referred to me by my sister, and initially I thought she must be too good to be true. As a first-timeand nervous home buyer, I knew whoever took me on as a client would be in for a roller coaster ride. But Annetook great care of me, giving me a thorough education on both the condo market and Chicago neighborhoods.Most importantly, she helped me articulate what I was really looking for. In the end, I not only found a great place,but a great investment."

"It was a pleasure working with Anne Connolly. She could answer all of our questions and she gave us greatadvice. She sold our place within 10 days. In this market you cant top that."

"I chose to work with Anne because of her profound knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods, building types andthe market in general, and because her hard-working reputation preceded her. She exceeded my expectations onall fronts. Thanks to her deep market expertise, solid financial counsel and savvy negotiation skills, I felt extremelyconfident when we went to contract on the home of my dreams."

"I worked with Anne on three different transactions two buying and one selling. I was really impressed with theway she utilized her accounting background, especially in the buying process. She provided us with a spreadsheetthat calculated a realistic bottom line on the specific properties we saw that day. Because she was so well prepared,we were able to make informed decisions."

"Anne has the instinct to identify someone as a real potential buyer among a sea of window shoppers.She worked with them to get a reasonable price given the prevailing market conditions and our desireto sell. She was great to work with."

"Meredith was very thorough with the entire process of our sale. She also maintained constant communication and made us feel like we could ask her anything at any time. Her recommendations on staging and the overall marketing plan for our condo proved their worth as we were able to sell above list."

"Anne provided me with fantastic service. Not only does she know the market but she also knows the neighborhood. She made me feel like I was not just dealing with a professional but also a friend. I had more than a few "moments" of uncertainly and confusion and she was there to talk me through each time. Her patience is unbelievable."

"Anne listened and internalized our goals and strategy, offered several additional viewpoints, but always geared the search to what we wanted in terms of area, price range, and property characteristics. I know the broker represents the seller, but I feel that Anne did a very good job helping us find and close a transaction, and provided us with a lot of context and understanding of value, which helped us negotiate a fair price. While Anne needed to be away for a couple of weeks during our search and transaction, Meredith stepped in seamlessly to continue the momentum. Plus, Anne was always available for phone consultation at the critical points. We were pleased with the services we received."

"Anne and Meredith are a terrific team. They gave me great advice and resources to get my condo in shape. It sold in 6 days with 3 offers! They also worked with me for over six months to find my "perfect" next condo. Their advice let me beat out 9 other offers! I would recommend them to everyone."

"I have already referred two friends to her, for use if/when they proceed to buy. She was fabulous- every trip out was a good learning experience, in that she taught us what we were looking at, and what to question, and what was good or bad about the property. This was all done very informally, and every trip out was actually lots of fun. She was organized, and had things in order and lined up, so we did not waste time. She is honest and forthright. And she found us a place which was just what we described to her, which we love. Great person."

"Meredith has a tremendous knowledge of the housing stock in Chicago. She showed me many different options so we could identify what specific type of property would best fit my needs. She also has a great vision for interior design and helped me visualize how I could remodel or arrange a space to make the most use of it."
