"Anne was extremely patient and helpful, which was especially important for us as first-time homebuyers."



"When I needed to sell my house, I knew exactly who to contact. This is the second time I have used Anne for the sale of my house. She is professional, thorough and hard working!"

"Anne helped us find a home to purchase and we are extremely pleased with the experience. Anne is very knowledgeable about the area and helped us find our home. We enjoyed working with Anne, she was always available with an answer to a question or to set up an appointment. She makes you feel like you are her most important client. She is professional, kind, and caring and we are so happy to have worked with her. I would recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."



"Couldn't have been more pleased with the job Anne Thompson did for us with selling and buying our houses. She was very informative and answered every question i had..... and i ask alot of questions. I wouldn't think twice about referring Anne. Great job! Thanks Anne!"



"I could have not asked for a better agent than Anne. This was my first home purchase and she made sure I was always clear of what was going on and the proper steps needed for me to complete my home purchase. Thanks to Anne I got to purchase my dream home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. All around great experience!"



"Went above and beyond. Truly recommend."



"Anne was fantastic from day one until closing. She had great knowledge of the market, good perspectives on home buying, and was very accessible during the entire process. There were multiple occasions where I felt Anne went above and beyond expectations, and she was very respectful as we worked through the various stages of the purchase. I would highly recommend."



"Moving from the city to the ‘burbs my wife and I were concerned finding an agent that would have the patience and perseverance to help us find our new home. After working with Anne, I can say she more than met our needs exceeding our expectations in every way. In our situation, we were looking for a home that needed some updating but had good bones. Anne must have showed us every house on the market in Elmhurst in our price range and refused to let us settle for good enough. Her knowledge of the area and connections with local resources was really icing on the cake. We are now living comfortably in our new home and couldn’t be happier."



"Anne was very good at holding our deal together and became personally involved as a kind of ombudsman with me and the the buyer to see the deal through from offer to close. Thank you Anne!"



"Anne is the best from start to finish!"



"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anne. We were first-time home buyers and she really helped us to navigate the process of buying a home. I was most impressed with her responsiveness; she definitely went above and beyond when it came to responding to our questions at all hours via text, email, and phone. She was also ready any day of the week to take us to look at houses, which was a huge plus when searching in a competitive market where submitting an offer quickly was critical. Since we were looking to buy in Elmhurst, it was great that she was so knowledgeable about the specifics of the area, including lesser-known ideal locations near stores and restaurants. On top of that, I appreciated her unbiased perspective on each house we looked at because I didn't want to work with an agent who pushed us into buying a house that wasn't right for us. At the end, she stayed with us through the closing process and even followed up with us afterwards to see how things were going. My wife and I couldn't be happier with Anne and we couldn't be happier with our new house! If we ever move, I'd definitely reach out to her again."



"Anne was awesome! She is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you throw her way. I ask a lot of questions and she never got aggravated with me! Always happy to do what you needed or wanted her to do! She knows her stuff! I would definitely refer to my friends and family! And use her again! Great realtor!"



"She was very helpful. She answered our questions and was very flexible. We had a specific criteria for our homes location and she was able to pull them with ease. If there was a style that didn't work she helped find other similar options. I definitely recommend her."



"Anne goes the extra mile to help her clients, being new to the country and area, she helped me settle in, but that didn't stop once I moved, she would often make sure everything was ok, to the point where I felt I would use Anne to buy or sell my house again and would recommend her to anyone else who was looking to do the same."



"We had the pleasure to work with Anne Thompson on the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. From the initial meeting we were impressed with her strong people skills as well as her upbeat and positive energy. Anne is a seasoned pro who takes the time to know her clients and their needs, giving helpful advice and listening throughout the whole stressful process. Anne’s generosity can be seen in everything she does and we will forever be thankful for the opportunity to work with her and appreciate the way she made us feel like family. We strongly recommend Anne for your real estate needs."



"Anne was extremely helpful throughout the process and made the stressful process of selling our home easier than we could have ever imagined it would be. She walked us through the process prior to putting the house on the market and was more than willing to answer all of our questions very quickly. The marketing materials put together were great as well. I would recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!"



"Anne was truly a pleasure to work with. She was always responsive with every question we had and willing to give her two cents when asked (but didn't "over-sell"). She kept us informed with the entire process and when things got tough, her knowledge and positive attitude kept us calm. After working with Anne I feel as if she is part of my family. I would recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!"



"WOW! Anne did an absolutely amazing job helping my mom sell her house in Elmhurst, as we were relocating her out to Colorado to live near me, her daughter.

While the process of selling a house can easily become overwhelming, Anne's knowledge and positive energy instantly calmed us, we immediately felt comfortable and confident in her skills and expertise. We knew without a doubt we chose the right realtor for my mom. She was so calm, reassuring and encouraging throughout the entire process, from start to finish.

It is inevitable to feel frazzled by such a major lifestyle change, here my mom was leaving a home she had lived in since 1976, and along with that passing time all the memories of, as well as neighbors to leave, etc. - As if the downsizing and packing and being surrounded by boxes and in limbo was not exhausting enough, yikes!

Yet Anne was truly like an angel to my mom and to me too, and she never tired of answering questions, explaining the next step, giving words of reassurance with her kind smile and calm demeanor, and ultimately making the whole transition go so smoothly and easily, that we are in awe.

We highly and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for and needing a realtor sent from up above, a true angel!!! Thanks once more Anne, you are a lifesaver! Best wishes to you & your family, next time you are headed out West, don't be a stranger & look us up for sure!"



"My fiance and I were first time homebuyers, and Anne was there for us every step of the way! She was patient with us and explained any questions we had about the process of buying a home. Everything went SO smoothly, from going to look at houses to our closing. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars!"



"I had to relocate after living in a certain area for 55 years due to a job change. Anne found the perfect place and did it in a timely manner. She was always available to answer all my questions."



"Anne is, in one word, wonderful. Because of prior negative experiences with realtors, I expected her to pressure us to spend more money on a house than we could afford in order to make as much commission as possible....but she was not that kind of realtor. She continually surprised me with how much she cared that we find a good deal on a home and how much she genuinely wanted us to be happy. There were properties that she gently advised us to not spend time looking at (i.e. mold issues in the basement) or properties that she did not recommend offering more than "XXX" amount. She always listened, gave great advice, and did not hesitate to get involved. We had a rough time getting to closing because of difficulties with our mortgage broker, but she literally made it happen by pleading on our behalf with the seller's agent and going way above and beyond what we would expect from a realtor. She stood by us and was our advocate throughout the emotionally frustrating experience. Anne is just amazing. She will listen to you and be there for you. She has even checked on us after closing to see how we are doing with the house."



"Anne was really great to work with, she helped us but our Elmhurst home when we moved here from Chicago. Anne knew a lot about Elmhurst, and really helped us narrow our search almost immediately. After we closed on our home, we called Anne back 2 years later, and she helped us find and purchase an investment property here in Elmhurst as well. We would certainly recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell. She made sure the deals moved forward, and she was very responsive when issues came up."



"I was the worst type of client - had a very specific style house I was looking for. She found not only the PERFECT house, but 3 options that fit my style and range. The entire process was exciting, uplifting and stress free, just how purchasing a dream home should be."



"We gave Anne a huge challenge: big dreams and a LOW budget. She was able to help us find a home exactly where we wanted that could be our dream home after a little TLC. We never felt pressured to buy nor did we ever feel like she was ready to give up on us. She found us a home that the price was right, then she helped us find a contractor that could continue to keep us in our budget. The house started off as a boring/ugly house and 6 weeks later was transformed into something beautiful. Although closing was weeks ago, she has stayed in touch wondering how things are going and making sure we are feeling "at home". I'd recommend Anne to anyone in a second!!!"



"I've had the privilege to work with Anne on multiple deals in the western suburbs and have found her very knowledgeable as to the areas as well as about the real estate industry as a whole. She has kept up with the market trends and the economic impacts and has always been able to provide expert advise. She also has a vast broker / industry network which is so valuable in today's competitive market where "who you know" has never been more valuable. If you are looking for a new broker in the western suburbs, you could not do better than to place your search - and your trust - in Anne's hands."



"From the first time we met AnneThompson she has been nothing but professional, knowledgeable, helpful, kind and friendly. I would recommend her to any friend and family member we have. She is an asset to your firm."



"Anne is a true professional broker. I would not consider using anyone elase because of her attention to detail and her patience!"



"Anne was a star and very helpful for our family who were moving from the UK. She puts the best of UK realtors to shame. Helping us find the right house for our rental and then helping us select the areas we would consider for purchasing. Anne's ability to listen to what we were looking for helped is a huge amount to filter the "right" properties including viewings via Skype. Can't say enough good things about the service."



"From start to finish it was a complete joy working with Anne She was an absolute professional and knows the business and the area very well . She took very good care of us. We always felt we were a priority even though we know she had many other clients. Our home sold pretty quickly!! We were very pleased!"



"Words cannot express how impressed we were with our Broker Anne Thompson. She far exceeds our expectations, we highly recommend her.

"Anne Thompson was terrific. She helped us get the property we wanted on a small budget even though we were up against multiple offers. Don't hesitate to give her a call. She is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with."



"Anne was fabulous, easy to work with, patient, a visionary in regard to our property..I would highly recommend her to anyone"



"Anne was great. She found properties that matched what we were looking for and adapted her searches based on our input. She honestly evaluated each property with us and helped us to find exactly what we were looking for. I hope I don't need to move any time soon, but if I did, I would definitely ask Anne to help me again."



"I am a very picky person and have very high expectations. Anne was a wonderful realtor! Since moving to the Chicago area, I have worked with four realtors. Anne is the only one I will do repeat business with."



"I like to thank Anne for her support and professionalism. I just felt very comfortable with her approach and marketing tools for the sale of my mother's estate. All went well and I appreciate her work."

"Anne is amazing! She was truly instrumental in working with us in coordinating every aspect of purchasing our new home, we can't thank her enough!She was there for us whenever and wherever we needed her through each and every step of the buying process. Her attitude was always friendly, genuine, patient and positive- all characteristics that made her such a great fit for us. We both admit that we did not truly enjoy the home buying process but Anne was there to get us through it. She always had great advice and found ways to keep everything in perspective when buying our home."



"Anne was wonderful to work with. She was ALWAYS going the extra mile to make the process as seamless as possible. She knew it was my first home so would always ask the right questions so i always knew what to expect."

"Anne is always a pleasure to work with! We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home since we have used her both and both times it was an excellent experience."



"We were assisted by two brokers in this case, Anne Thompson and Barbara Shields. Anne and Barbara are both thoroughly professional, hard-working, patient, and always prompt to respond to communication. Moreover, Anne and Barbara have a very solid grasp of the market and the neighborhoods in which each broker operates. We were confronted with the challenge of moving to the Chicago suburbs from the East Coast, and we knew very little of the Chicago area coming in to the process. Anne and Barbara made the process so much less stressful, and, for this reason, the house search could not have been more enjoyable. Given the pressures of finding a home in advance of moving our family, Anne and Barbara were extremely accommodating. Also, my @Properties "team" was extremely helpful in guiding us through the twists, turns, and bumps along the way to selecting, negotiating for, and, ultimately, purchasing a house with which we are quite happy."



"Anne has been a fantastic help in finding our home. Anne is always on time, very efficient and provided some excellent tips and feedback. I would recommend Anne without any hesitation."


"Anne was the best real estate agent I've ever worked with and I have bought and sold many times. She listens to your needs and gives an objective opinion. That along with her patient demenor made our first suburban home buying experience second to none. I highly recommend her!"

We recently celebrated her closing on her house with a champagne toast - to each other, to our family, to everyone who helped make this happen, to the stars, to the heavens, and to Anne, that through all of her incredibly warm & personal touches that went above and beyond a typical business relationship (which let's face it, hiring a realtor is in fact just that) yet Anne's down to earth, trustworthy & also for our case, very tender and compassionate approach, made us confident we could not have found a better match for our particular needs. We highly and whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for and needing a realtor sent from up above, a true angel!!!"

"Anne was wonderful. She went above and beyond to ensure that we found a place we loved. She is very knowledgeable about the cities she shows houses in. Anne is very personable, patient, prompt and attentive. If she did not have an answer she had contacts that did. I would definitely look her up again if we need to buy/sell again. She is definitely one of the best and what comes through the most is her interest in helping you find a home not just the $$$$ she will make."

She is acutely aware of what matters most when buying/selling a home and definitely helped my family to focus on those critical elements. Her patient approach made me feel totally at ease throughout our search and purchase process. Even after we were settled, she was a valuable resource and someone I felt comfortable calling for information and advise regarding our new surroundings!"


"Anne was instrumental in helping me sell my house in 2007 during a difficult selling time. She was supportive and professional and very easy to work with. Her suggestions for marketing my property were good and she was available to look at other properties when I needed her.I would highly recommend Anne for your real estate needs."
