"3 times a charm!!! Elizabeth has now sold three of our properties; a condo in Lincoln Park, a single family in Bucktown and now a luxury single family in Elmhurst, IL. Elizabeth helped us determine the proper price point to sell quickly but not leave any money on the table. We had two offers just three days after listing and before we even had the for sale sign posted out front. We eventually accepted one of those two offers and were very happy with the whole process. Elizabeth recommended minor changes and upgrades prior to listing the home and we did exactly as she recommended as we had also done for the last two properties she sold for us, which sold almost as quickly as this latest home. Elizabeth is an extremely detailed oriented, relatable and professional broker. Not choosing Elizabeth as your broker and going with someone that you may feel "obligated" to go with for one reason or another is a big mistake that will cost you valuable time and real money in the long run. Book her for a preliminary consultation meeting and you will be sold. We have and will continue to recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a buy or sell broker in the Suburbs or Downtown. Thank you Elizabeth!!!"



"We have known Elizabeth for many years and was excited when she offered to be our real estate agent for the sale of our Vernon Hills, Illinois home. She was fantastic in everything that she did to market our home. The brochure alone was amazing in how it presented our home. We could not believe how professional it looked. We also could not be more happy with how Elizabeth was able to keep us focused and help us when we had a few issues during the process which caused us some minor meltdowns. Her positive energy and pleasant personality 24/7 proves that she is truly a professional real estate agent. Thanks Elizabeth for everything!!!!"



"Our experience with Elizabeth was top-notch, she's got to be one of the best in the business! We recently purchased a home in the Western Suburbs and sold our condo in the city, the process on both ends could not have gone more smoothly. As first time home buyers we looked to Elizabeth for a lot of guidance on pros and cons of certain house attributes, maintenance concerns, etc and she was very knowledgeable and helpful in that regard. For the sale of our condo we had 8 showings in the first couple of days and a couple of offers that ultimately resulted in an agreement within the first week of our listing. The negotiation process on both the buy and sell went smoothly and Elizabeth was very proactive in communication throughout the entire process which was reassuring. Based on our experience we will certainly be using Elizabeth on any future transactions and will be recommending her to all friends or family as well!"

"Elizabeth was amazing. She was there every step of the way with us. Always with a smile. Always with good advice. If you want a broker you will like every bit as much at the closing as you did when you first met her, go with Elizabeth."



"Elizabeth was an awesome realtor to work with. We live out of state, so Elizabeth practically handled all the details herself. She was always on top of things and had everything ready for the closing. If we were moving back to the Chicago area, we would definitely have Elizabeth help us again."



"Elizabeth was excellent. We gave her the specifications for the type of property we were looking for and she compiled a large list of possible matches. We then narrowed it down to our top ten and we saw all the properties in one day, which was perfect because we told her we were on a pretty tight timeline. We made our decision in 3 days and got the apartment.I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking to rent in the Chicagoland area."



"Elizabeth did a great job finding us the right home to buy and selling our city condo. She helped navigate through some road bumps along the way to come to a good resolution on both transactions. Very knowledgeable of both the city and suburban markets, down to the exact streets and school districts. Very patient and was always genuinely aligned with our best interests. Hopefully we don't move for a long time, but if we do we will call Elizabeth!"



"Elizabeth was fantastic to work with, very professional and involved in all parts of the process. Always responded immediately to any questions and made the process seamless. Our doorman even commented on how nice and professional she was as he deals with a lot of brokers that come into the building."



"Hard working broker on top of it at every step of the way. Realistic when it comes to pricing and has excellent follow up skills. Would recommend 100% of the time!"



"Elizabeth was the perfect broker. She was responsive, straightforward, and always fully professional. Because I was out of town when selling my condo, I needed someone to handle all the details. Elizabeth did everything, eliminated most of the stress involved with selling, and--best of all--sold the condo in no time at all!"



"Elizabeth was an incredible resource for us every step of the way. Her combination of knowledge, diligence, and personality is refreshing and makes her a pleasure to work with. Thank you Elizabeth!"



"Elizabeth is an absolutely amazing agent! She has such an incredible eye for detail, and her feedback while viewing properties and during walk throughs was invaluable. She is extremely knowledgable, and was able to explain every step of the process in a clear manner. She is so pleasant to work with as well- always on time, upbeat, kind to everyone, patient, and committed to helping in any way possible. Elizabeth made selling our home and buying a new house as smooth and easy of a process as it could be. We are so grateful to her!"



"Elizabeth was great to deal with from start to finish and we are very pleased with how Elizabeth navigated through a very complex situation for our purchase. Elizabeth comes very well prepared and surrounds herself with a great team that provides nothing but the best results."



"Greatly enjoyed working with Elizabeth and would highly recommend her."



"We gave Elizabeth a hard task to complete in a very short time. She delivered with perfection !!!!"



"Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicagoland market. She is also very good at gaining feedback about the property she is showing and sharing it with the client (good and bad), which is helpful in marketing the home. She had continuous contact with us throughout the selling process and through the closing.""



"What more could I ask for from a real estate agent? Elizabeth August was kind, courteous, and extremely helpful during the entire condo-buying experience. I am a first-time home-buyer who's nearest resource is my mother in Phoenix. Having someone to bounce ideas off of and get insight from in person was an immeasurable asset. I will definitely refer Elizabeth to any friend, co-worker, or family member who is actively pursuing purchasing a home or condo. I could not be more pleased with my experience!"



"This was my 3rd transaction with Elizabeth, she is always prompt, attentive &has a great sense of urgency when it comes to completing your transactions. I was very appreciative of her persistence in sells my property as it was a challenge and she was excellent when it came time to finalize the transaction."



"We'd been planning to list our duplex on the market for about a year but were hesitant for a couple of reasons. First, the state of the market had us nervous about what we would get for our place. Second, having met with a few different agents at various companies around Chicago, my husband and I just couldnt find an agent that we felt would look out for our best interests. That is until good friends and neighbors introduced us to Elizabeth. From the first meeting with Elizabeth August, we knew she was the right agent for us. First and foremost we loved the idea of an agent that does all the showings. To know that we were getting as close to firsthand information and reports on showings was invaluable. Also, Elizabeth offered great advice on how best to stage our condo , provided valuable information on how to price and overall, she wasn't an alarmist as other agents we'd met had been. While others had wanted us to upgrade everything to seemingly make their job selling our condo easier, Elizabeth was helpful pointing out the most important things to focus on without spending money needlessly. While we fully agreed with the asking price Elizabeth recommended, we more importantly found ourselves with three competing bids within ten days of having our place on the market. To get more than asking price was beyond our wildest dreams!Elizabeth was also invaluable to us on the buy side. Taking the leap from the city to suburbia, she was relentless in helping us find the perfect home that would fit our budget, and fulfill our quota of "must haves". With our place under contract in late fall and the market slowing down we were getting ready to settle but Elizabeth was relentless scouring the market, reaching out to find listings that had just come off or those that were coming on the market to see if they might be "the one" for us. To sum up our experience with Elizabeth, we'd never buy or sell with anyone else in the future."



"Elizabeth was great to work with. She was very professional and we knew she was looking out for our best interests during the offer/negotiations. She was very responsive to our requests and was knowledgeable about the market. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking to buy/sell a condo in Chicago."



"Elizabeth August is the best!! She was super helpful and always quick to return calls, find places, etc. I wouldn't have been able to close the deal without all the help from Elizabeth! She is highly recommended!"



"Elizabeth was great to work with and I will be recommending her to anyone looking for a realtor."



"Elizabeth was great! She provided great advice in the staging of our home and executing the sale of our condo."



"Elizabeth August is the best in the business. Elizabeth's expertise of the market, knowledge of the neighborhood and friendly disposition sold our condo in 6 days (it had lingered on the market previously for over a year)! It is our pleasure to recommend Elizabeth August. There is no doubt that you can trust her with all your real estate needs."



"Elizabeth sold my condo for me and had to do a little extra leg work for me as I no longer live in Chicago. She was able to take care of all of my needs without me having to fly in to town. I appreciate her going the extra mile for me to get this deal done."



"Elizabeth was PHENOMENAL! She knew so much about each neighborhood, types of construction, what questions to ask, what to look for - everything. She made our first time buying a home a dream come true. Could not ask for a better person to help us with this process. I hope she knows how happy she made us!"



"Elizabeth was very proactive, helpful, friendly, and informative. She had great referrals for lawyers and inspectors as well."



"amazing. patient. determined. knows her sh*t!! elizabeth was great & we've referred her to many of our friends. couldn't of been happier and will use her again (this was our 3rd time already!)."



"Elizabeth's knowledge of the commercial real estate market is unsurpassed. From the start she was easily accessible and worked around the clock to make sure all of our questions and needs were met. She's got great relationships within the business which makes working with other agents seamless."
