"Elise was incredibly responsive and helped us sell our house quickly, safely and successfully during Covid. She was thoughtful about how to approach pricing and follow up with potential buyers and always gave us a straight answer, which I truly respected. I would highly recommend Elise to anyone looking to buy or sell a house on the North Shore. She knows her market and will represent your interest perfectly to get you the best outcome."



"Elise is exceptionally knowledgeable about and highly regarded in the Glencoe, IL and North Shore real estate market. We would highly recommended listing or buying with her."



"It was an absolute pleasure working with Elise Rinaldi. From our first conversation, we felt so comfortable in Elise’s expert hands. We urgently wanted to find a home before school began and she tirelessly worked with us to find a terrific house and continued to provide great support during the closing process and move-in stage. We are so thankful we found Elise."



"Elise represented us in the sale of our home in Glencoe in April 2020. The sale occurred in the midst of both a challenging market and a viral pandemic. Her market expertise is fantastic, and she provided direct communication and honest expectations regarding pricing in a rapidly changing environment. She helped “edit” our belongings and stage our property to maximize appeal to a broad market. She worked tirelessly with marketing, showings and open houses for maximum exposure for our property. We moved out of state before our home sold. We could not freely travel to properly prepare our home for the closing, and she helped mobilize a team to accomplish this despite business closures and major limitations. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Elise, given both her knowledge, work ethic and professionalism."



"Elise and her team supported me closely throughout the entire home sale process. She worked hard, was speedy and listened carefully to my specific goals. She provided a current and thorough market analysis, helped me downsize with a professional organizer, staged my home, and held open houses resulting in multiple offers. She also went above and beyond in cases where I was traveling out of town, and stepped into affairs I just couldn't get to. She works with 100% integrity and is a true partner. I would work with her again in an instant!"



"Elise was everything you could ask of an agent. She was helpful, understanding, resourceful and knowledgeable. She was always available but didn’t bother us with needles information. I can’t recommend her more highly."



"Elise was great. She was there to guide us through every step along the way of the sale and purchase of our homes. From getting our house ready for sale up through the last items just before our purchase closed, Elise was there to solve problems and offer substantive solutions when issues arose. We had no idea how much work and creativity were involved with the process. It's also clear how well respected Elise is in the broker community...it was evident in the way she worked with and interacted with the other brokers on our behalf. Thank you Elise!"



"We have worked with Elise a couple of times including once on the buying side and once on the selling side. Elise was a good consultant for us providing the right level of local market expertise while taking guidance from us on how to strategically position our home for sale. We were able to secure multiple offers relatively quickly due to the marketing and staging efforts we collaborated on with Elise and her @Properties team.

Elise was also a big help during negotiations and in taking us all the way through closing. We would highly recommend Elise to anyone looking to buy or sell in the North Shore area."

"Elise sold my house, in a very slow market, in less than a week with multiple offers. First she helped me price my property, not an easy task. Then she helped me navigate my first offer, which fell through. And finally, when a bidding war developed, she helped me negotiate in a way that resulted in an offer over my asking price. She was very responsive, and very kind in dealing with an owner who was freaking out a bit! I highly recommend Elise."



"My experience with Elise was positive and realistic. She was very
responsive and helpful in setting up the house to be viewed.
she also had good resources for any outside help that we needed.
Selling a house that one has lived in for many years is a difficult ex-
periece, to say the least, and Elise helped us get thru that.

"Elise was amazing! She was our 3rd agent, and we are so glad we found her. She knew Glencoe better than any agent we had been with or met. She was honest and definitely had our best interests at heart. She is hardworking, but balances all her plates wonderfully, and always gave us her full attention, even when we knew she had other things going on. It was our first home so we were pretty clueless, and honestly could not have done it without Elise's guidance. HIGHLY Recommend for Glencoe or anywhere in the North Shore!!"

"We met Katie back in late 2012 during our visit to another open house she was working in the area. Katie was very professional and stayed in touch with us realizing we hadn't selected a realtor yet. She really listened to us and she was always looking for the home we desired. We were looking in a crowded price range where homes were plenty but nothing was really connecting with us. Then one day Katie suggested we look at a home that was significantly more expensive just to see what we thought of it. We fell in love with the home and made an offer right then and there. Katie was our advocate and stood by us from offer to the closing table. We enjoyed our experience with Katie Turner and now consider her a friend. We give high marks to Katie and @Properties!"
