"I was fortunate enough to have Blair as my landlord and real estate agent. Blair was a very accommodating landlord. If there was ever an issue, it was easy and quick to reach her and have the problem fixed. Blair wants her tenants to have the best experience living in her apartment, and it was very easy to connect with her if we needed anything. When I had to move out of her 3rd floor apartment, my positive working relationship with her led me to choose her as my real estate broker. Blairs extensive knowledge of Chicago and the surrounding area, along with her real estate expertise was the perfect combination. She matched all of my roommate and mines needs in order to find us the perfect apartment. Blair is organized, professional, and detail oriented. Walking through the apartments, Blair would ask the agent showing the apartment thoughtful and important questions which was extremely helpful as I am not as familiar with renting/buying property. Blairs work ethic and real estate acumen will make you happy you worked with her."

"Blair is the consummate professional in all aspects of real estate brokerage. Blair truly excels at negotiating challenging complex deals--she is the ultimate creative problem solver. As my listing agent, Blair was always the calm, steady hand guiding things forward--she never looses sight of the goals and objectives of any deal. In addition to her business skills, Blair is a person who brings a special warmth and generosity of spirit to all her interactions." Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, and High Integrity."

""Blair is an incredible real estate broker and an incredible person. We hired Blair to find our first home in the City many years ago and then hired her to sell it 5 years later when we decided to move to the suburbs. The results on both ends were fabulous. She is an expert in locating and selling property in the City, and knowledgeable in all of the different neighborhoods. She is trustworthy, kind, and a pleasure to be around. She makes the real estate transaction seamless and effortless. Now that the kids are older, we may look for a place back in the City and wouldn't think about hiring anyone but Blair. You are in great hands with her."Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, and High Integrity."

"I have known Blair for many years. She was tireless in our search for a home. I lost track of the number of homes we saw and she never tried to push us into making a decision. She also represented us in the sale of our condominium, which went quickly, in stark contrast to the time it took us to decide on a home. There were many units for sale at the same time but Blair managed to bring multiple bidders by highlighing the benefits of our unit. Blair is ethical and hard working.Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, and High Integrity."

"Blair impressed me with her thoughtful attention to detail, as she planned her marketing campaign for my home. As I was her first client at her new company that she founded, Historic Lakefront Estates, I saw that she had a clear vision of what she was creating. I appreciated her on-going communication and Blair's intelligent guidance as well as Blair's ability to position my home in the best light for a quick sale at the highest price the market would bear. After being on the market with another firm for over a year, I was very impressed with Blair's decisive strategic plan to get a multiple offer and sell it within the first 10 days of the listing. And the bonus was that she sold it for almost asking price as well! Blair was friendly, kind, thoughtful and showed me that she had a real passion for her business. I offer Blair my best wishes as she continues to exemplify the highest standards, integrity and caring for her client's best interests."

"Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, CreativeBlair sold my condo for me, and did a fantastic job of marketing the property in a so-so market. She actually went out and hired an artist to do a beautiful pen and ink drawing of the historical building I lived in. Her ad placements were dead on, and we ended up selling the condo at double what I had paid for it. She is easy to work with and I highly recommend her.Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, and Creative. January 19, 2011"

""I have had the privilege of coaching Blair in her personal and business life. During this process I discovered her unbridled passion for exceeding expectations and playing full-out. Blair is a doer she gets things done. Of all my clients in the past few years, Blair stands out as someone who takes her commitments VERY seriously. She doesnt mix words and she doesnt BS. Blair gets busy. If anyone reading these words has an opportunity to work with Blair in her business, I can assure you of one thing for certain, if Blair makes a commitment to care for you and support your needs she will do whatever it takes to get the job done. You can trust her, count on her and put faith in her integrity.""

""Blair was my agent when I looked for and purchased my first home, a condo in Chicago. She understood my needs, likes and dislikes, and found many suitable properties for me to visit. I appreciated her trained critical eye as we toured properties; she was able to point out each home's good and bad points, as well as its potential. She kept me focused, and helped me to prioritize my choices.When the time came to make offers, Blair's insight into price vs. value insured that I got the right property at the best price. She did the legwork to make my closing smooth and seamless. After the closing, her network of decorators, architects and contractors were just what i needed to add the finishing touches that turned the right property in my dream home.Blair knows real estate and knows her market. Thanks to her guidance, my home purchase was a most pleasant experience.""
