"Connie Dornan is very professional, knowledgeable and honest realtor. Her no-nonsense approach was highly valued by my wife and I."



"Connie and her team were very professional, understanding and very knowledgeable. She make you feel comfortable and is always available to answer any questions you may have. She kept me informed through the whole process. I would use her services again and also I would highly recommend her if you're in the market buying or selling your property. Thanks again for all your help and support Connie.Sincerely Delia Castineiras"



"Connie Dornan is one of the most talented, determined, and enthusiastic individuals I have ever met. She helped me purchase my first condo and I feel like I could not have found a better realtor. I felt like I was her only client as she guided me through the process. Connie always took the time to listen to what I wanted and then anticipated places I would like. She was cognizant of time constraints I had and always managed to work with me and my hectic schedule. Her insightfulness on various aspects, many of which I would never have even thought about, made her an expert on everything we encountered. You can tell that this is what Connie was meant to do and her energy level only made me enjoy working with her that much more. I had MANY snags after an offer was made and she conquered them all with relative ease and kept me sane as we worked on bizarre issues that were of no fault of her own. I would not have found and closed on my dream place if it were not for her and her expertise. I had an idea in my head of what realtors were like and Connie changed all of that. She is an inspiration and anyone would be a fool to not use her for any of their home needs. The only thing that I am disappointed about is that I will not be able to work with her again until I need to sell my place! Connie Dornan cannot be beat and I encourage anyone to give her a call to start the best realtor experience one could ever want."



"Connie was a fabulous Realtor for us. She stayed in contact with us constantly throughout the sale and gave sound advice. You could not possibly find another agent that will work as hard to sell your house a Connie. Don't hesitate."



"I had a wonderful experience with @properties and my agent Connie Dornan. From our first meeting, she took the time to listen carefully to exactly what I was looking for to meet the current needs of my family. She was very responsive to calls and got back to me same day if not immediately. Her attention to detail in every aspect was a tremendous asset to me during the process. At the final walk through, Connie took two hours pointing out things I never would have noticed and made sure they were all addressed before closing. I would recommend @properties, but specifically Connie to any of my friends and family. Thanks again for all the hard work"



"Connie was our Real Estate agent when we sold out Town home and purchased house. We deiced to work with her on this to transactions. Great decision she was extremely professional, great knowledge of North shore Market. I would strongly recommend her as selling and buying agent. She is true expert and Best North Shore Real Estate Professional and she always pick up her phone when you call."



"Connie sold my townhouse for me this past summer. She was professional in every interaction, always available to answer questions and address issues, and facilitated every step of the process. She is prompt in her responses, has a terrific attention to detail, always going above and beyond my expectations. Connie is extremely knowledgeable and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home."



"Connie turned out to be far more than a broker. She was warm, personable, objective and took a genuine interest in finding the right property at a fair price as though she herself was the purchaser. I was very pleased, wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use her in the future, and feel as though I made a friend in tbe process."



"Our house in Wilmette was admired by everyone but because of its situation on the corner of Lake Avenue presented a challenge for the typical young family moving to Wilmette with young children. Connie did a great job in helping us think through our listing and worked tirelessly to market our house. She was supportive and insightful; planning a campaign to fit the timeline of our projective move out of state. In fact, we moved several weeks prior to the closing confident that she would see all of the remaining issues through to fruition. I would highly recommend her as either a listing broker or if you are searching for your perfect home."



"Connie Nadia Dornan is a dream. I knew I wanted her to be my broker from the first meeting. She came in ready and efficient. Her professionalism is excellent, but she is also very easy to work with. She had a plan and executed it pretty perfectly. Anything that didn't go accordingly was nothing she could have controlled. She always seemed one step ahead of me, emailing or texting me before I even needed to email or contact her. Overall, I would use her for every transaction, and refer her to anyone!"



"We had a unique, difficult situation and with unmatched patience, Connie Dornan from @properties found us our dream house. We would highly recommend Connie's straight and honest but thoughtful approach which helped us understand our options and managed our expectations but in the end found us a house we expect to live in for many years to come. Thank you Connie and @properties!"



"We worked with Connie to buy our first house and she was great! Very responsive, with deep expertise in both the process and the north shore market. She really made the process easy and efficient, guiding us wisely all along from the first stages of searching to eventually making offers and closing. We feel lucky we found her and it was a pleasure to have her as our agent."



"Extremely helpful. She this property as "the one" when we first saw it. Very supportive."



"We love our new home, but Connie was the best decision we made in this process. Without her, and only her, we wouldn’t be here today. If there was a superhero with real estate superpowers, that would be Connie. She is extremely intelligent, reliable, experienced, efficient, and really fun to work with! She has the intelligence and work ethic to be the top performer in any profession, so we are very fortunate to have the privilege of working with her for our first home purchase. From our first meeting, her expertise on home values, local school districts, trends, renovation costs, etc. was evident. She was very honest about our expectations and gave us an accurate picture of what our budget could buy in each local sub-division and in this year. Since we’re first time buyers, she explained that she really needs us to be educated on the different styles of houses, the neighborhoods, and market values before we make an offer. She said that she would dedicate 4-6 weekends visiting homes with us and educating us until we are comfortable. After that, we would be in waiting mode and ready to pull the trigger when the right house comes on the market. The exception is that if an amazing opportunity was available before then, she may recommend that we act on it.She genuinely cared about our future home as much as we did. She told us to back out of a house we almost bought because she sensed that we didn’t have our whole hearts in it. This is after she read over the entire contract to us line by line over the phone at 10pm. We were ready to sign and most realtors would’ve walked away with their commission, but that’s not Connie.At times when we thought that there was nothing in the market for us, she told us to be patient and positive. She said that she would have no problem if she had to spend a year with us to find our home (in the end we found our dream home in 2 months!).We were in a multiple bid situation with the home we eventually bought and she gave us the magic number that won it, which was between the numbers that my wife and I suggested. Too much and we would’ve overpaid and too little we would’ve lost the house.During the attorney review process, she went over every aspect of the inspection report and recommended how much we should ask for each issue and which ones to ask for. Normally realtors don’t deal with this at all but for all aspects of this process, she always goes above and beyond. For her clients, she was willing to take any heat and shield us from all the negative aspects of this process. She helped us artfully negotiate a very good deal in the end.Connie has made this entire home-buying process fun and enjoyable. My wife and I often joke about the funny things she says and how we’re so excited to see her every weekend. Despite her busy schedule she insists that we continue to contact her with any questions about home renovations and people she’d recommend for interior design, contracting work, etc. Her connections were absolutely clutch as well! Her lender and lawyer really delivered and came to bat for us during the closing. Connie doesn’t mess around when choosing her people.Although she has many clients, it really felt like she was only working for us. She responded to every call, email, or text within 2 minutes or maybe an hour if she was in a meeting/appointment, even late at night or early morning. I am not sure when (if) she sleeps. This really is a 90/10 profession, where the top 10% of the realtors do 90% of the business, and Connie is the best of them all."



"Connie really listened to what we wanted, gave us a lot of time to look at a number of properties, and helped us through the entire process. Her expertise in the areas in which we were looking for a home was priceless. Her attention to detail and follow up even after the contract was signed was superb."



"Connie helped us in the entire process of finding a house around Winnetka/Wilmette. She is very familiar with this area and understands the pros and cons of different areas. Connie puts our interest at the center of her interactions with us and always thinks from our perspective. She took time to understand our preference and highlights the things we should pay attention to in our visits to various properties. With us being relatively new to the process of buying a new home, Connie was extremely helpful when it comes to process and negotiations. We will highly recommend Connie to anyone who need helps in finding a new home."



"Connie went above and beyond in helping us buy a home in Evanston. We were from out-of-state and she took the time to help us find the right home and location for us. She is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and passionate about her job and getting the best for her clients. She is hands-down the best there is!!! We will send anyone looking to buy or sell a home to Connie. She talked me off a ledge during the buying process once or twice and I trusted her every step of the way. She is simply outstanding."



"Connie is AMAZING. My wife and I were moving from New York City (with our dog) and a very tight schedule. Connie went beyond any reasonable level of expectation and helped us define and narrow our search, find viable candidates, and make an offer in one weekend. Connie was responsive at all times and so helpful. As first time home buyers she guided us through the complex and at times challenging process. She earned our trust quickly and will be our go to for any real estate questions. Thank you Connie!"



"Connie was great! My family and I moved to Illinois from out-of-state and she was very flexible to work with our crazy schedule. She understood our needs and had a keen ability to match properties to our lifestyle."



"Connie was extremely helpful in helping us find the home of our dreams and always listened every step of the way to find the home that fit us best. She is extremely knowledgeable in real estate and worked hard for us."



"Connie was great! She took all of our suggestions and was able to narrow the houses down to exactly what we wanted. She was there for every question and helped us become acclimated to the area. Connie is a very strong negotiator for not only the purchase price but for all the possible repairs needed. I would highly recommend Connie to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. Thank you Connie!"



"Connie Dornan is without doubt the leading realtor in the Northshore. She helped us through every aspect of our purchase. We simply could not have done it without her."



"We have known Connie for the past 6 years, in that time she has constantly been looking for a home for us. If it was not for her persaverience, guidance and never give up attitude, we would not be here today, 6 years later we are finally proud home owners. She is honest, fair and works hard for her clients to achieve their end result, qualities we want in a realtor and friend. We can not thank her enough for all she has done for us. Connie is someone we would most certainly recommend to our friend and family."



"Connie was professional, thoughtful, and willing to listen to what we wanted in a property. She found us a beautiful home that met our criteria and helped guide us through the process of buying our first home. I cannot imagine having a more positive experience in buying a home."



"Connie made the daunting task of selling our mother's house much less so. She was infinitely professional and patient; explained everything that we needed to know, answered our many questions, and kept us up-to-date on the progress of the sale. When we needed to bring in outside vendors to do things at the house, she had reliable recommendations when we would not have known where to start.We felt we could trust Connie 100% and relied on her knowledge and suggestions as we went along. She maintained a great attitude even as we had to deal with some unusual situations during the process.We would not hesitate to recommend Connie."



"Connie is simple the best!so greatful that we met her and we did business together.excellent communication, great strategy, great sense of urgency for everything....great experience"



"We had a complicated situation with our home sale, and Connie handled everything with incredible professionalism. We came to her after 6 months with another agent, and she really heard our concerns. We had been unhappy about the lack of feedback from the prior agent, but we had a feeling Connie was different when she immediately left feedback each of the t times she showed our house before we listed with her. We were very happy with her follow up with potential buyers. We have already recommended her to friends, and do so with every confidence that they will be as happy as we were."



"Connie did an amazing job selling our home! She helped us get everything ready to sell our house, took professional pictures, created booklets for our property and pre-marketed our house. This hard work resulted in an accepted offer within 1 day of listing our house! I would recommend Connie to anyone that wants a reliable agent that will get the job done."



"Connie was absolutely incredible! I have been a Realtor myself for 23 years in Virginia but grew up in Glenview. With the recent passing of my mother my brothers and I were presented with the task of selling my mom's house which also happen to be the same home we all grew up in. As a consumer I was extremely impressed with her honestly and credentials along her knowledge and experience in the Glenview area. As another professional in her field I was blown away by her high end marketing as well as her warm personality, she is an agent's agent!!! I have already referred Connie to someone looking for guidance in choosing a great agent! Barbara Watz Sawyer Virginia Beach, VA"



"Working with Connie made our lives simple. We felt like she was in our corner and she helped us find a home that is just perfect for us and our expanding family. She'll be the first to know the next time we are in the market and we recommend her without hesitation!"



"We could not have asked for a better Realtor. As first time homebuyers, we started off without a clue and by the end of the process we felt like pros thanks to Connie. On top of being a seasoned realtor, Connie has a great deal of experience in what seems like countless neighborhoods - which helped us narrow down our search. While we were anxious to find a home, Connie also made it her mission to make sure we kept resale value in mind. We are now in a great home and I would definitely go back to Connie if we need to buy or sell again."



"Connie is amazing. We could not have asked for anyone better. She really was instrumental in directing oyr search and helped us every step of the way. We couldn't be happier."



"As an out of town family with some unique needs, Connie worked to find homes that would work for us. I particularly liked that she shared her ideas about some of the houses we marked online before we were back in town. Her awareness of our needs helped to refine our search and made the most of our time. Connie was responsive to every inquiry and paid attention to the details. We enjoyed working with her. ."



"This was my first experience with Connie Dornan. She is an excellent broker, very knowledgeable and professional. No matter when I contacted her, she was always prompt with a response, or answer to my questions. I look forward to working with her again."



"Excellent Knowledge , communication and incredible follow up!"



"Connie was so knowledgeable about the areas where we were shopping. She was focused on getting us into homes that met our criteria. She made herself very available. Communication was top-notch. Fantastic service!"



"Connie did a great job selling our home in a down time ofthe year in a difficult situation. A total professional who was easy to communicate with and prepared for every step along the way"



"Our broker, Connie Dornan, was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing our condo, from 1st viewing of the property through closing. She was always available to contact with all questions and concerns we had, and was always at "the top of her game" -- a pentultimate professional in every respect!"



"Connie Dornan is one of the top agents on the north shore, but she made us feel like we were her only clients. She is not only personable and professional, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market. Connie's does not care about making sales, she cares about getting her clients into a house that will make them happy. I recommend all my family and friends to Connie Dornan and I actually look forward to our next move knowing that we will get to work with her again."



"PERFECTION!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased with Connie Dornan. She worked with us for months to find just the right house. Connie guided us with expert advice every step of the way. She was available nearly 24/7 to answer questions (even while on an international vacation!) and to keep the process moving. We could always count on Connie to do her job AND to make sure others were doing theirs. In real estate, there are a lot of players and moving parts and Connie kept everything working smoothly and quickly. Unlike other realtors, Connie doesn't require clients to sign a contract for her services. She says that she wants them to stay with her because they're happy working with her, not because they're contractually obligated to do so. But I say that Connie doesn't need clients to sign a contract because she's just that good."



"Connie was wonderful at making me aware as soon as properties I might like came on the market. That enabled me to compete in the "flash sale" market that we saw here on the North Shore last spring and summer. She was also excellent at spotting potential problems like basement cracks, water marks etc. that I wouldn't have noticed. She is extremely knowledgable about the area and always available to answer my numerous questions. I found her easy to work with and most of all she was tenacious in finding us the perfect house for two very particular buyers."



"We found Connie after meeting with several other brokers and had an immediate connection. She is aggressive, honest, and professional. There was never a doubt that she always had our best interests in mind. She immediately understood what we were looking for and made sure that we didn't settle for anything less. We are now happily in our new home after a smooth process and an effortless closing.We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Connie to anyone looking for a home in the north shore."



"Connie was more interested in making sure that we were educated before making any rash decisions. She took her time to help us understand the home-buying process. In time, we learned and developed a better idea of what we wanted. We felt that Connie was first an instructor of her craft and a broker second. This is a very reassuring and endearing quality. In addition, her work ethic and commitment to her clients is unmatched! So grateful tohave her on our side with our first home!"



"Connie is very professional and very knowledgeable and up to technology. Communicated very well with her and followed her advice and love her wisdom. She responded quickly to any questions and keep me inform every step of the way. Connie is a very positive person which was very comforting. She also worked with my attorney to make sure the closing went without any problem. I will highly recommend Connie at anytime, Connie is one of a kind!!"



"Connie was excellent with her market analysis and strategies to sell the house quickly and supported the process all the way from start to finish. She truly understands market conditions and its influences, and provides thoughtful advice with respect to her client's goals. I would highly recommend Connie to anyone searching for an honest and diligent broker/agent who is capable of delivering on their promises."



"Connie was professional and alway available. My home was small and she threaded it as if it was a million dollar home. She always kept me informed and always answered my questions in a timely manner. She worked well with my lawyer. I knew from my first conversation with her that she was a perfect pick and I was never disappointed. I would recommend her to all my friends and business aquaintences."



"Connie is very easy to work with. She is willing to understand the customer needs and propose solutions accordingly. She has worked diligently to help marketing, staging, showing and negotiating. She reacts to various situations promptly and gets things resolved quickly. I would definitely recommend her to my friends in the neighborhood."
