"Colleen Harper puts the needs of her clients first and foremost. She is extraordinarily professional and knowledgeable. Her many years of experience and her knowledge of the neighborhoods of the city of Chicago, as well as the quality of the properties themselves, are unmatched. She is driven by her desire to match her client with their dream home. She stands by the client throughout the entire process and explains the process in great detail. Additionally, she was instrumental in assisting with the sale of my former home. Both the sale and purchase were executed with the utmost skill and patience.
I simply could not have found my dream home without her. I would highly recommend anyone to Colleen."


"This was our third time buying property and our first using an agent. Colleen was an absolute joy to work with. She really listens and is interested in her clients as people. This helped us understand our wants, needs and our ultimate goals for buying a new place in a new neighborhood. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the South Loop market and was able to hone in on what would best work for us in the current market.

Although we had purchased property before, this was our first time buying a condo. Colleen really educated us on the process and worked with us to find the perfect place.

She's thorough, professional and caring. We couldn't recommend anyone more enthusiastically and hope to work with her for years to come."


"It has been a gift to have Colleen Harper as our real estate agent. First, she suggested things for us to do to make the condo unit more marketable, like painting the walls and cabinets. We moved shortly thereafter, and were no longer able to take care of things in the apartment, such as fixing a faulty AC switch, having the floors sanded and stained, and installing new carpeting. Colleen took care of everything. She advised us on pricing according to market rate, instituted a number of open houses, and accompanied prospective buyers to the unit whenever they could visit. She did much more than this as well. In addition to her reliable and responsible stewardship of our unit, she became a friend. If I could give her more than five stars, I would. Sylvia Margolin"

"Colleen is the best realtor ever. She has worked with me several times over the last 15 years and always provided 5 star service. Her high level of professionalism, honesty, knowledge of the industry and especially the South Loop neighborhood have made every transaction the most valuable. She's always on the money both in pricing and negotiating the best deal. I have recommended her to many friends and she has provided the same high quality service to them that she has provided to me. Highly recommend her for anything involving real estate."


"Colleen has helped me with a residential and a commercial property. Now she is selling a condo for a family member.

She's reliable, responsive, and she is always willing to invest the time necessary."


"Colleen did both ends of our sale. She is a complete professional.
Knowledge of our selling neighborhood, Lincoln Park, was beyond our expectations. Understood timing and pricing. In the end we received our asking price for the unit we sold. Without question she is the expert on the South Loop. She handled relatively difficult purchase.
We are extremely pleased with the whole process and would not hesitate to refer Colleen to someone needing a great realtor."


"Colleen was prompt in scheduling our viewings. She knew the pertinent information for each condo building, and was able to answer our questions regarding neighborhoods. She listened to our needs as well as our wish list. Any question that she was unable to give an immediate answer to, was soon answered by email. She was a fantastic negotiator and was always looking out for our interests. She was there for us through the entire buying process. I will highly recommend Colleen for any future purchase."


"I have worked with alot of brokers in the past to buy investment properties.
Colleen came recommended to me from a neighbor as I had to find a property for my dad. What sets Colleen apart from her peers is that she is a great listener and really is driven to offer superb customer service. I really felt that Colleen was working for my best interest and valued my time to show me properties that fit my criteria. Above all her in-depth knowledge of transactions and the industry really set her apart from her peers. Colleen is very professional and very easy to work with. She is the best broker that I have worked with in 35 years. Thank you Colleen for your exceptional service."

"Colleen is a true professional through and through. I was a broker before I became a builder and Iam very selective who I trust to conduct business with. Colleen is extremely knowledgeable and I really believe has her clients best interest when assisting with the transaction. I value her opinion. I have worked with other brokers over the past years and since I was recommended by a client to work with Colleen I have her take care of all my portfolio needs."

Colleen was there to answer our questions and helped make the entire transaction move forward very smoothly.Something that Colleen did for us that we really appreciated was that she took the time to help us get familiar with the area. She was extremely knowledgeable of the properties and neighborhoods which helped so much with the process. My wife and I highly recommend Colleen Harper."


"Colleen was a pleasure to work with - from helping us with staging and overall appearance to her deep understanding of the market and our location. She was always available when we needed her and gave us frequent updates. The best thing about Colleen is that she valued our unit - and wanted to make sure we got exactly what it was worth!"


"Colleen was the answer to my prayers. Selling a home is so stressful. She simply takes charge from start to finish. Our home are priced precisely, we made a great profit! I highly recommend Colleen if you are buying or selling a home."


"Colleen is great! We had a very narrow (almost impossible) criteria for her to work with and she still was able to find us the perfect home. Her passion for the area and honest, in-depth knowledge of the South Loop definitely was a deciding factor for us. Everyone should have an agent looking out for them like Colleen did for us!"



"Colleen did an amazing job of helping me refine my search and locate my ideal apartment. This was my first home purchase and while I had a vague idea of what I wanted Colleen did a great job of digging for details and getting to the core of what I wanted. We looked at around 6-8 properties and she was patient and very communicative during the whole process including great insights into the management companies of each building and previous tenant experiences if she had them to share. I am now in my ideal home (for now) and I owe it to Colleen's professional, dedicated and exemplary work. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for their new home!"


"Empathy may or may not be a desirable quality in a Supreme Court Justice, but it is a trait to be treasured in a real estate agent. And empathy is the most pronounced attribute of Colleen Harper. In addition to tenacity, integrity and depth of knowledge about the market. Colleen naturally and comfortably puts herself in the shoes of her client, understanding their needs as a deeper level of feeling than what one might reasonably expect from a Realtor. In my own case, she listened, observed empathized and tracked town for me the home of my dreams. Since she has placed my wife and me in our "home for life' it's not at all likely that she will get any more of my business, sol, in appreciation for her good work on my behalf, I gladly and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in search of a new home.

""When my fiancé and I were just in the browsing mode I found Colleen to be generous with her time and with her patience and this impressed me. Once it became obvious that we had decided to be serious buyers, her manner with us registered no significant change and that impressed me even more. From the beginning she was attentive, creative, accessible, and made you feel as if she was definitely on your side. This is always a bit of a balancing act in a dual-agency situation and she did it quite well. We fairly quickly bought our 'dream apartment.' Colleen continued to be a helpful conduit between ourselves and the developer. Enabling us to develop a good relationship has been an asset appreciated by both sides I believe."

"Colleen Harper took over my development Casablanca Lofts on Michigan Avenue project shortly before the crash of the Chicago market. Immediately several units were sold. She held solid to her commitment and finished by selling my last unit this past June. I would strongly recommend Colleen to be your Realtor.

"Colleen was always available for us since we live so far away from the property, it was important we have someone to look after our best interest."



"Colleen was an amazing broker. I had a job relocation, a government shutdown plus the sale of my home. My mind was all over the place. When I came to Colleen with my issue she assured me I was in good hands. And she was right. She even connected me with an awesome attorney. Colleen took care of everything with grace and confidence while I was out of state in Washington,D.C. I dont know how she made it all happen. Colleen is truly a miracle worker. I am very grateful for her professioinalism and ability to get things done. If I decide to purchase Chicago real-estate in the future I will definitely contact Colleen."
