"Carrie was amazing to work with during our first home purchase! She helped us find homes within our budget, assisted with writing our offer and held our hand throughout the process. I recommend Carrie to all my friends and family. Thank you, Carrie!"

"Carrie is easy to work with. She is very knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. She made the process of selling our mom's home go smoothly and quickly. We'd hire her again without question. We highly recommend Carrie!"

"Carrie sold my home in under 72 hours! She is smart, knowledgeable and very good at what she does. She will fight hard to get you the best possible deal. Carrie Goodman is, hands down, the best realtor out there!"

"Carrie helped me from start to finish. As a first time home buyer I had no idea what I was doing and she was there (and excited to be answering) my questions throughout the whole process. Carrie frequently checked in with me reminding me of what I needed to be doing and making sure I did not need anything. I will be recommending Carrie to all my friends as they begin to make their own home purchases."

"Carrie is incredible to work with! She is very knowledgeable and really worked with us as a partner to fine THE perfect house. Plus, she sold our house in one day! Amazing!
We would, with no doubt or hesitation, recommend Carrie to our children when they are ready and to anyone we care for because we know they will be in great hands and have a wonderful advocate to the moment keys are in hand, and thereafter if necessary!"

"I lived in my home for 27 years before finally deciding to sell. Carrie and I had been talking about selling the house for more than two years. It was a decision that did not come easily. I raised my children in the house and had piled up years and years of memories. She was never pushy and only had my best interests in mind. Carrie was always thoughtful and cognizant of the personal side of selling a house and let things progress at my pace instead of hurrying along the process. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, professional and always kept me informed of anything new. Few house sales are without bumps along the way and Carrie maintained her professionalism, steering us to the right buyer and stayed on top of everything until the last signature was signed at closing. I strongly recommend her as your agent."

"Carrie was so wonderful helping us every step of the way when buying our first house. She helped us find a home, mortgage company, and home inspector. I would highly recommend her to anyone trying to buy or sell a home."

"Carrie was very helpful and knowledgeable about the market and pricing. She helped us with every aspect of the sale. She also was helpful how to handle all offers and price adjustments."

"Working with Carrie exceeded many of my expectations. As a first time home-buyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Carrie was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with me and explain everything to me.

Carrie relieved my stress level even though I was on a very tight time-frame. I truly believe her expertise and unbelievable insight helped tremendously in my offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Carrie!"

"As first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. Carrie was very patient with us and helped us to learn the whole process while we looked at 30 or so houses. She is a great realtor and is always there (even still, a year later) if we have any house related questions. If you are looking for a realtor, you can stop your search here!"

"Carrie found it!!.. I was kind of a complicated buyer. I had certain Finance restrictions not to mention a very particular price range and location area that many other people were seeking and, she was able to find me something that was just about to hit the market which put me first in line. Then she was able to negotiate with the other realtor to see it beforehand and mediated between the seller and I saving us both money. I believe Carrie did a great job even though I was difficult to buy for and found a place that was exactly what I needed."

"Carrie was a pleasure to work with. Not only did she make the process easy for us, but she helped find the perfect home to meet our needs. I'm grateful we had her help!"

"I had been looking at units for months! She goes, “check out Vernon hills!” This was the first place we saw in person. It was a no brainer decision and we couldn’t be happier. Carrie made it so easy! We couldn’t have done it without her."

"Carrie, was fun to be with and always happy and responsive.
She was on the ball finding listing to suit my needs, and was always prompt to meet me at the homes we would see."

"Always tuned in to my needs and asking the right questions to get me into the right place for me! She was always ready to answer my questions and did not think any road block was too much. She is a powerhouse!"

"Carrie was always ready to help when I wanted to know something about selling my home. She sold the house quickly."

"Carrie and her partner Lyn Wise understood our needs and worked very hard at all stages of the process from initial interview to listing to sale and closing to fulfill our desired end result. They stayed in touch with us at every stage and even followed up after closing to make sure that we received our proceeds. Highly recommend them."

"Carrie really cares about her clients. She has the patience to guide you through the whole process professionally and with respect."

"Carrie is fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable about the entire process. She helped me identify quality properties and is extremely responsive. She was always prompt in returning my phone calls, texts, and emails. That made a huge difference as my time is extremely tight. She also provided a ton of information that improved the entire buying experience. She has tremendous business contacts as well for things like professional recommendations as I did not have the time to find my own people. I will be a repeat customer over time and will be using Carrie again and again for my real estate transactions. In sum, Carrie is very trustworthy, responsible, and she made a difficult real estate transaction easy."

"We had a great experience selling our home in Buffalo Grove and buying our new home with the help of Carrie. Not only did she sell our house in less than 3 weeks on the market, but she went out of her way to calm us down and answer all of our questions throughout the entire closing process. If you are looking for an experienced, professional, responsive and friendly real estate agent, you just can't go wrong with Carrie. We would recommend her to everyone we know."

Carrie's wonderful personality, caring spirit, experience and knowledge made it possible for my home to be sold in a short period of time."

"Carrie was an excellent agent to work with. Our criteria for a new home was very specific and her patience and knowledge of our needs was excellent. The end result was perfect. Not sure most agents would have stood by us like Carrie did. Thanks to Carrie and the support of @properties - an excellent company!"

"That was my 3rd deal with Carrie and I am completely satisfied with the service again!What is good:- Punctuality. Carrie is always on time for viewing- Respect to tenants. Carrie gently knocks the door, waits for reasonable time or response and ask viewers to put their shoes off.- Respect to client's opinion. Carrie never pushes for any decision, do not try to convince in anything and share her opinion client asks her.- Clear clarification on questions about contract.- Responsive and supports in any issue appeared.I definitely recommend Carrie to anyone who's looking for Broker!"

"Carrie is quite simply the best in the business. She communicated promptly throughout the entire process. She is smart and knowledgeable, and was able to answer any and all questions that we had. When we were close to our move out date of our then current home, she focused her attention to finding us the perfect home so that we could move out on time.

Buying our new house: Carrie was relentless in digging up leads and finding houses to view that met our strict criteria. We had a lot of stipulations and she kept at it up until the day we closed. None Better."

"Carrie was a delight to work with. Her knowledge of the industry was grade A. When I told her I had cash to purchase the first thing she said was she would need proof of the cash to show the sellers I meant business. I found the condo I wanted and closed on the sale in 10 days."

"Carrie Goodman was fantastic! Professional, personable, knowledgeable, great follow up, which was so important for my move from NC to IL. Carrie worked within my budget and the area in which I needed to be. She also stepped in when I could not be available, stayed with me during an unusual closing. I would highly recommend Carrie."

"Carrie handled both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. She is incredibly knowledgable with the entire process of home sales/purchases. She genuinely cared about our deals and did everything in her power to make sure we closed. Carrie went above and beyond her duties as a realtor and will recommend her to anyone who needs help with real estate."

"Signing with Carrie Goodman was the 2nd time my wife and I attempted to sell our house. Carrie Goodman was a better broker for us than the other brokerage firm we chose. Carrie explained things as they occurred and doubled her efforts when the "first deal" fell through. Carrie was always available and that was reassuring. That said, since we sold for less than the price expected, one cannot help but wonder if more could have been done to get a better price or whether the market was "soft" and the price we sold for was indeed a "fair" price.All in all, Shelly and I were very satisfied with the service provided by Carrie Goodman and @properties."

"Carrie was a dream to work with. She is smart, capable, and straightforward. I felt at ease throughout the entire ordeal, and she was my rock. I can not say enough good things about this young lady.

As a first time homebuyer, I was nervous and unsure of what to do, and Carrie made the whole thing so effortless.Thank you!"

I have worked with many realtors before and she is the best one. I would definitely refer Carrie to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home."

"Carrie was professional, courteous, and efficient in assisting me with renting my property. I came to Carrier with a tough task, to find me a place to rent that was both spacious and within my strict budget... To make matters more difficult, I was told I was transferring from out of state within 3 weeks, so I had to find my perfect place in one shot. Carrie assisted me every step of the way, understanding exactly what I was looking for and sending me matches throughout the week in anticipation for the weekend visit. I would gladly recommend Carrie to anyone looking for their next place."

"Carrie goes above and beyond, sacrificing her personal time to provide excellent service while making sure that I am informed 100% of the way. Her flexibility and willingness to work with me made apartment shopping on a tight schedule a much less stressful experience. Carrie truly does care."

"Absolutely loved Carrie. I feel like I was dragging her through from the very beginning..... 2 years ago when we were not actively looking but browsing. As our family grew bigger we decided we needed a bigger home and start being more active about getting a new home. We stuck with Carrie from start to end. She was very attentive to the homes we liked and gave suggestions of homes in our areas nearby we may have been interested. She was able to help with references on people from lenders to attorneys to use. She was there from beginning to end and we are very pleased to have met and worked with her. Thanks Carrie!! Your always welcome in our new home."

I will be recommending Carrie to all my friends as they begin to make their own home purchases."

Carrie's down-to-earth strategizing and negotiating styles defused many stressful junctures."

"I'm glad I had opportunity to work with Carrie. It was the second time she helped us to find a home for rent. I'm fully satisfied with both results because Carrie does her job very professional and friendly providing any clarification I had. Carrie is great 5 star Broker."

"I worked with Carrie Goodman on the purchase of my condo. I thought that the process would take months and I would have to look at loads of listings. I wanted to purchase something quickly and Carrie sent me listings that I was able to weed out first. It really was a time saver. I am a former real estate agent and understand the importance of listening to your clients lists of needs and wants. An attribute Carrie has really honed! Carrie was able to find me several condos in my price range in my desired area and we began looking. I knew in my heart that one of them was the one I wanted. It had almost everything I wanted! Carrie really did her job! The process took maybe two months from start to finish. She is experienced, professional, knowledgeable and knows how to negotiate! Another plus is that she has a host of resources at her finger tips too, such as home inspectors, painters etc... She started out as my real estate agent and Carrie has now become my friend. She loves what she does! How many people can really say that. She is all about helping her clients find the home of their dreams.....Thank you!"

"I wanted to say Thank You again for letting me be your client and helping kick my home buying process into gear. It was comforting to know that during this whole process I had someone to turn to. Thanks again for your patience while we looked through the initial set of place as I was still figuring out what I really wanted. I'll be sure to pass your name around if I hear any of my friends are looking to purchase homes."

Carrie made sure that I was 100% happy with every decision that was made, and truly had my best interest in mind.
