"Broker was quite patient as this was a long process of working with a thorough buyer who had a strong personality. She was quick to answer questions and show houses when requested."

"Celia was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable and always available to answer questions!"

"We have listed two very different properties with Celia Nelson, our old family home in Wilmette was long overdue for updating. Celia suggested cosmetic changes that made our home appeal to modern buyers. She arranged for and supervised the work to be done. We got a good offer for the house the moment it was available. The second property is 1970 townhome in Northbrook. Celia and her team have quickly and inexpensively transformed this house and is ready to enter the market against its more recently buil tcompetition. Celia is easy to work with and has been very considerate if our unique time contraints. She has our unqualified recommendation."

"First and foremost, there is no one who knows the ins and outs of the North Shore better! Laurie helped my wife and I purchase our first home, and expertly guided us through the process from the time we started looking to the time we closed. Taking the time to learn exactly what we wanted out of our home as well as understand our budget, Laurie showed us wonderful options all within budget and in our target neighborhood. Her expertise of the local market and knowledge of the neighborhoods made Laurie's guidance invaluable. If my wife and I ever decide to buy another house in the area, she will be our first call"

"Working with Laurie is awesome. Buying and selling a house can be quite stressful but she makes it easy by guiding us through each step of the process. She keeps us grounded and realistic throughout the process which lead us to a faster close. In fact she sold our first house in one day! She is a firm negotiator and stands up for her clients. She gives lot's of attention to her listings unlike other "super agents" in the area. I would certainly call her to schedule an appointment. She is a PRO on the North Shore"

"Laurie was great to work with. She was very patient as we looked at dozens of homes as we narrowed down our search requirements, and was very helpful in closing the deal once we made a decision."

"Laurie and Dan Lawlor could not have been better brokers for my husband and me. From the beginning of our house hunt, they were on top of things. Any request we made, they went above and beyond to complete. But what makes them shine is that they understood our vision very early on without us having to explain too much. From that, they researched and hand picked homes they felt we would consider. What we really appreciated was how they did not push us in one direction or another. They wanted us to go with our true feelings for each home. And as busy as they are, they are lighting fast with responding to emails and texts. We would bombard them with requests, some of which we would forget about and never once did they dismiss a request nor did they forget. This team is TOP NOTCH Northshore specialists. Laurie helped us find our dream home in Northfield. We never thought of this neighborhood (didn"

"I felt my(our)) interests were forfront in her mind during all aspects of the sale. "She puts her client first.""

"We could not thank Laurie enough for the care and attention she gave my family this year. Laurie went above and beyond the call of duty. I never thought a real estate agent worked enough to earn what they are paid, but, in my opinion, Laurie didnt earn enough. I felt like she was family. We are so glad we worked with her."

"Margaret Burton went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor. She is vivacious, friendly and so good at what she does. I told her my price range and a few specifics I needed in a home. She did her research before we ever met. When she picked my daughter and I up for our first "house walk" she had chosen the properties very deliberately. I never dreamed this could happen, but I found my house that first day!Margaret has a wealth of resources. She recommended an excellent lawyer, house inspector, and painter -all of which I was greatly satisfied with. There was very little time between finding my house and the closing. Margaret stayed in close contact and guided me through "unknown territory." Her positive attitude and superior expertise made it a stress free experience for me.Margaret treated me as a friend, right from the beginning. I am looking forward to her visiting my new home and proudly showing her how I have transfixed it. Sincerely,Carol Smith Semple"

"Jean and I closed on the purchase of a home in Kenilworth one year ago. This was a big decision for us. Not only had it been thirty years since we last purchased a home, but we were faced with my retirement and searching for a home in an unfamiliar area. Today we are simply delighted with our home and friendly neighborhood. All have met or exceeded our hopes. Laurie paved the way for this to occur through patience and locating the right property, wise council in exploring our options, expertise in negotiating the purchase and skill in guiding us through the closing process. All went smoothlyWords cant express our deep gratitude for Lauries role in making such a wonderful home possible at this stage in our lives."
