Testimonials

Overall 5 star rating out of 66 reviews



"If I only had one word to describe Annika, it would be: amazing. She clearly loves her job and is so patient, professional, and fun to work with. Annika made the process as clean and stress free as I could ever imagine. If there were more stars available to give her, I would. Highly, highly recommended."



"Annika was a pleasure to work with. After 39 years in our house, it was a bit traumatic to sell a house we loved and look for another one that had rather rigorous requirements. She made the whole process as easy as possible. While we ranked each of the categories above as "5" her responsiveness really knocked our socks off. If we texted, emailed or called her she never failed to get back to us within about 10 minutes, often within 2 minutes! She knows the north shore like the back of her hand, she knows her business like someone who has been doing this for decades and she made the negotiation process look easy. We highly recommend her!"



"What distinguishes Annika from other realtors is her integrity and honesty, responsiveness, and vision. You feel you're in safe hands with Annika. But more than that, you enjoy working with her so much that when it's all over, and you've found the perfect house, you feel a bit sad when you realize you'll miss working with her. Thank you, Annika!"



"Annika, is a very hard working, responsible, loyal, full of ideas, willing to put extra time; she did 3 open houses with my property, many showing; and always on time and always is ready to put extra efforts to serve her clients. I'm very impressed with her service. I would like to say thanks for everything she done. I would recommend her as great, great real state agent.
Anna Ivleva. ( Northfield)"

I would highly recommend her to anyone either buying or selling."



"Annika's knowledge and professionalism is very impressive. She has a natural ability to understand both the practical and emotional issues that can arise while selling a home. Annika was always available to answer any question, big or small. She worked very hard to sell our house to the right people, and managed to find a buyer in as little as in three weeks. We only had one open house. This experience went far beyond our expectations! Annika is the broker anyone should wish for when looking for a new home, or selling a home. We were very lucky to have Annika as a broker selling our house and making it happen!"



"Annika is an incredible agent. She helped us find a house that was perfect for us. She guided us through the process and made things easy for us. We recommend her heartily!"

Since we are not from here, Annika excellent skill with the process and everything was wonderful and helped us very much."



"Annika is fantastic. She patiently helped us explore Wilmette (and other North Shore suburbs) for over 18 months. She knows the area cold, and helped steer us to our current home and neighborhood, which we love.

Annika's in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the real-estate market was tremendously helpful as we navigated the search, offer, negotation and (rapid) close process. "We love where we live" (@ properties' tag-line!!) solely because of Annika (and have been referring her to anyone in the market to buy or sell)!"



"I started looking for a house during my divorce process last fall. There were many requirements for my new house that were essential to me; enough bedrooms and bathrooms for my teenage daughters, enough space for a baby grand and for choir rehearsals that I lead, a space with good natural light for my art studio, proximity to my ex's house (not too far but not too close), in a neighborhood where my daughters have friends, where my budget was almost laughably low. I was embarking on a mission impossible. I had talked with a few other realtors before I met Annika. Annika was the only one who seemed to instinctively "get" what I needed, not only the physical space of the house, but also my emotional aspect of the move itself. She is good-natured, honest, very patient, very bright, extremely responsive and capable. She is flexible and open-minded. She was indispensable during my rocky time. She kept me optimistic and carried me through the house hunting, and negotiated with the seller to get the price down to my range. She worked so hard even after the purchase to fix some previously undetected problems in the basement. I cannot thank her enough, I cannot say enough good things about her. I would highly recommend Annika to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent with superb sensitivity to your needs. Thanks to her, I now have a perfect home for my girls and me."



"Annika helped me sell my townhouse in Wilmette and purchase a home in Winnetka, and I couldn't be more grateful to have had her by my side throughout the process. She is a true gem in every way imaginable! Not only is she knowledgable and dedicated, but she has a genuine warmth and empathy that is unparalleled. Annika helped me sell my town home in a very short period of time without having to make financial sacrifices. She was present at every showing, so I felt like my possessions were safe and my property well represented. She was always available to answer questions, and was extremely kind and patient. Annika made a potentially stressful process of both buying and selling a home in less than 2 months quite possibly one of the easiest transitions imaginable. I would highly recommend Annika to represent you as either a buyer or seller without any reservations!"



"Annika provided personalized and professional service. She was attentive and available to our needs and her response time was remarkable.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Annika."



"Annika is the best! Again and again she is able to find top notch candidates for my rental and she makes the process smooth and simple for me. I am fortunate to have her as a realtor!"



"Annika is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. She has boundless energy and is so devoted to her clients.

She is honest, true, and most of all extremely helpful and sensitive to all the pressures, frustrations and twists of buying a home. Her warm demeanor and endless encouragement is always welcome. Even though this is my first home purchase, I'm already looking forward to working with Annika again. Cannot rave enough about how great she is as a person and professional. Contact her and actually enjoy the process of finding a new home!"



"Annika is amazing. We deal with professionals all day long in our work capacity and have to say that Annika sets the bar.

She also understands our home is an important investment and treats it accordingly.When the time comes to sell our house or buy something else, we will ONLY use Annika! Our only suggestion is to make sure you keep Annika happy at @properties! She is a gem!"



"Annika did a fabulous job finding a purchaser for our home."



"Annika is the reason our home was sold! After numerous contracts fell through and our house would not sell, we hired Annika. She was in constant contact with the buyer's broker, attended all showings, attend all inspections and worked above and beyond to make sure our sale closed. If you want to sell your home, hire Annika, she's absolutely the best."



"Annika was very professional, friendly and always reachable while selling our house. She was great and I highly recommend her. Thank you"

We would highly recommend her to any potential buyer or seller."



"Annika was outstanding in every way! We were moving from out of town so she made time for us over two days that we could fly in and look at homes.

"Annika was a stellar broker to work with. She was attentive to our needs and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us find our home."



"It took us two years to find the perfect house and Annika was there every step of the way. She was patient and as our needs evolved and changed so did her recommendations.

We are thrilled with everything Annika did for us and we couldn't be happier in our new home!"



"Thank you for being our Real Estate Agent; clearly the best Real Estate Agent there ever was!You did everything right. You carefully assessed what should be our asking price. You expertly staged our house; it had never before looked as beautiful and free from clutter. You had us featured as House of The Week in The Winnetka Talk and in Chicago Magazine; complete with a filmed walking tour. You held open houses every Sunday, and accompanied all potential buyers during showings. You kept in touch nearly every day and gave us constant feedback. You recommended an outstanding real estate attorney. You brought in a fantastic photographer. And you negotiated a selling price more than acceptable to both parties.And you did all this with a wonderfully positive attitude; always caring, always letting us know everything would work out just fine, never flagging, never losing confidence, even in this uniquely difficult real estate market.Pamela and I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us. We will just have to keep trying.Thank you again and Best Wishes,"



"Annika was simply a delight to work with. It was refreshing to work with an agent who was focused not on the sale but on finding us our first home. She took the time to get to know us and was candid about what she felt might be negatives for us with a particular house. She was patient and understanding when we decided to postpone our search for a period of time. And her communication was excellent and helped calm any nerves we experienced with buying our first house. In addition to walking us through the process, Annika was our advocate throughout and in the end helped us find the perfect house for our family."



"I feel like words cannot do justice to the quality of service provided to us by Annika Valdiserri. We (my husband Junias and I) have bought a few homes and this is the first time we have come out feeling completely delighted with every aspect of the experience. We met Annika in summer, 2010. We had decided to interview several agents that were recommended to us. After a few minutes, we knew Annika was the one we wanted to work with. She has a very sincere and pleasant personality. She came across as forth right and continued to be a clear communicator in every encounter. She took the time to listen carefully to what kind of real estate we wanted to purchase and what expectations we had for our real estate agent. From day one, she worked hard to guide us to properties that were in line with what we wanted. We felt strongly that she was 100 % in our court and was committed to! further our interests. it is a rare experience to have that feeling about your real estate agent when every thing is said and done. We bought a foreclosure prop that ended us being a great value. When the pressure of the closing date came and the transaction could have easily fallen apart, Annika was the bridge to keep all parties on track, as she was well respected by everyone. We know we are in the beautiful home we are today in no small part because of her being our agent. We will recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone we hear is interested in buying or selling real estate. We smile when we see the @properties sign because it reminds us of our wonderful real estate experience. We hope you will recognize this very, very fine employee, who has done her agency proud!"



"I've been told by friends and relatives that buying a house is a stressful endevour, however for me it was not and i attribute this to having Annika as an agent.From the initial search for a property, Annika understood my requirements and arranged viewings that fit my specifications but also some that that provided options i hadn't considered.Being a first time home buyer and also having lived most of my life outside the USA, Annika was able to guide me through the process and explain to me all the intricacies of the US housing market.We also worked through the short sale process together and her experience in this matter was invaluable.It was a joy to work with Annika during the home purchasing process and although there were a few proverbial bumps in the road, as there always will be, Annika's best asset is that she can smooth out those bumps and lead you on the road to purchasing your new home."



"We really appreciate the attention Annika gave for her listings. She came for each open house event and each showing request. We also appreciate that Annika has first hand information about Wilmette and northshore so she can present buyers with the value of her listings."



"Annika is extremly diligent in her research for any relevant information and always answers promptly and correctly to any requests and always exceeds our expectations."



"Very attentive, very professional, very thorough, and with a lovely sense of humor."
