"Honore and Kelly Frumentino and their team provide superior service at every stage of the process—professional photography of the house to impress online searchers, advice on how best to present and stage the house, networking with other realtors through open houses and contacts, as well as the multiple stages from contract to closing, including serving as our advocate and representative at inspections and appraisal. They also offered key advice and contacts on estate sales and donations, to help us close down the house. They are a full-service, professional team throughout. I highly recommend them."

The Frumentino’s will work very closely with you throughout the sale process, starting with the prep of your property, the listing process, negotiating the buyer’s offers, and preparing for the closing."



"Kelly and Honore found us the perfect new house for our needs on a short timeline, and got us a great offer on our previous home in 3 days! They were super responsive and helpful throughout the process and were fun to work with. We couldn't be happier. I highly recommend the Frumentino team."



"From the initial consultation prior to listing through the final sale of our home, Honore and Kelly were open, honest, extremely knowledgeable, thorough and always available. We highly valued their expertise and support throughout the process, and how they never lost sight that selling your home is an emotional process as well as a business transaction. They helped us sell our home in a challenging market, always staying positive and energetic. We highly recommend Honore and Kelly. They are the best of the best!"



"We listed our Deerfield home just before the 2017 holiday season.

Although this was not great timing in the market, the energetic Frumentino Team proceeded as if their sales goals were literally "year-round." We started showing the house right away!

Their energy and persistence paid off with an early March offer. They tailor their approach to each seller and have strong connections in finding buyers. Regardless of when you list your home, be ready for showings practically the next day..."



"Honore and Kelly took over our listing from another realtor. They were quick to pinpoint what was deficient or substandard with our previous listing. They have a very good grasp of where the market stands."



"Honore and her team did a great job. We'd worked with Honore previously and were pleased to be able to place our trust in her again-- and are glad we did. As it happened, heavy rains and record flooding near our home made marketing and showing a unique challenge, but she and the team stayed personally invested and worked hard to get a sale done. Honore truly cares about her clients. Her knowledge of the market, considerable experience, and sheer determination were critical to our success. We recommend them unequivocally."



"WE HAD BEEN TRYING TO SELL OUR HOME FOR OVER 6 MONTHS
WHEN WE SWITCHED TO HONORE & KELLY. THEIR SENSE OF URGENCY AND AGGRESSIVE MARKETING GOT US AN OFFER ON THE VERY FIRST WEEKEND. THE CLIENT EVENTUALLY DID NOT BUY.
BUT THEY WERE RIGHT BACK ON IT AND WITHIN ANOTHER 45 DAYS OUR HOUSE WAS SOLD. THEY WERE ALWAYS AVAILABLE AND ALWAYS RESPONDED TO ANY QUESTIONS QUICKLY. THEY KNOW THE OTHER BUYERS, THE BANKS, THE INSPECTORS AND IT WAS TURN KEY GETTING THE WHOLE THING DONE WITH THEM. WE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER IN A SUPER TOUGH MARKET FOR SELLERS.

DALE HURWITZ"



"Kelly was able to sell my condo in just a few days for a good price. She was very good at negotiating and very helpful in coordinating closings dates even when changes had to be made. I felt that she really knew the area, the complexes and neighborhood."



"Honore listed & sold my North Shore home. She is a seasoned professional with extensive knowledge of the local market. I felt very comfortable working with Honore and found her to be very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process of selling of my home. I also received excellent service from her office manager, Corina. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received from start to finish from Honore and her team."



"Honore and Kelly are extremely helpful and professional. I used them to help me buy my house, and again to help sell it, which should say enough right there. When buying they were easy to work with and patient with me as I went shopping for my first house. They helped get me a very good deal and made the buying process easy and quick. When I went to sell my house they got me great professional photos, an excellent ad, and professional staging. My house never looked so good! I was able to sell quickly and for a good price despite less than favorable market conditions in my area. I couldn't recommend them enough!"

She got my house sold in a tough market at market price.
Honore and her crew took care of the many unexpected items that arise in a sale."



"Honore handled our listing with professionalism and did an excellent job
in securing the sale of our residence. We would definitely recommend her
to our friends and relatives in need of a real estate agent."



"We had heard great things about Honore and Kelly, but that did not do them justice. They were very knowledgeable about the local market and were invaluable with the preparation, staging and presentation of our home. Honore addressed all of our questions quickly and even responded while out of town. Her staff (I mean you Corina) was great too.

The video and photography vendors selected were top-notch and Honore went the extra mile and helped with our apartment after the sale.

Look no further, Honore and Kelly are the best!"



"I really couldn't be happier with Honore and her team. She knows her stuff. She was responsive, kind, and extremely helpful with excellent advice. She got our house sold quickly and for a fair price under tough market conditions. You really can't do any better in choosing a realtor."



"The Frumentino team lived up to all of our expectations. It's understandable why they have such a great expectation. Their advice proved to be invaluable in selling our home. I would use them again and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home!"



"Honore was an amazing asset. She and her team were invaluable to selling my house. We were nervous about everything we had to do but she assured us along the way. We had a multiple offer situation which really benefited us. Our first offer did not work out, which was stressful, but Honore handled it like the pro she is and we had a contract with a 2nd within 24 hours of the first one falling through. I would never use another realtor if I had a choice."



"Kelly and Honore Frumentino were such a tremendous help for me as a first time home buyer. As a single working mom, with a whole bunch of things on my plate, they were with me through every step and made sure the process was as painless as possible They were able to find the perfect house that met my criteria of cost, school, and location in a pretty competitive area. I am impressed with their knowledge and professionalism as well as being very personable. I would highly recommend them to any prospective buyer especially up in the North Shore area. They are simply the best!"

The property was well marketed, leads were followed up and I was always kept informed.

The Frumentino team is the best there is!"

Thanks,"



"The Frumentino's have sold three houses for my family over the last nine years. I have continued to utilize their services because each transaction was performed in the most professional manner. Their knowledge of the market around Chicago is excellent and they always provided good advice which lead to a successful outcome."



"Kelly was great to work with every step of the way. She has unmatched market knowledge and was able to get listings before they went on the market. Would definitely use her going forward."

"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with Kelly and her team. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, took the time to evaluate the pros and cons of each property / area and negotiated a great deal on our new home. We would HIGHLY recommend using Kelly if you are looking for a home on the North Shore."



"Honore and Kelly sold our home within 8 weeks. During this same period, there were 2 other homes in our neighborhood listed with others that as of this date are still on the market. When it was slow, they made and served lunch for a realtor's open house to drive traffic to our home. (BTW, Honore is a wonderful cook!) They took care of items in our home when we were away to assure optimal viewing for potential buyers. They are direct, knowledgeable about real estate, relentless, and honest. They are perfect to have on your side!"



"She has extensive knowledge of the market and of people you need in the process of selling a home. She went beyond what anyone could expect in helping us sell our property, including: finding tradesmen, vendors, and decorators to make the property more sellable. She kept appointments and responded to questions promptly."



"Honore and Kelly Frumentino are a mother and daughter team. If there was one word that could describe them, it would be INCREDIBLE! My husband recently got a job in a new state and we had to move pretty quickly. We interviewed 4 other realtors and Kelly was the only one who really knew what she was talking about. She was knowledgeable in the market, our competition and our neighborhood in general. Also, she didn't keep asking us what we wanted because we had no idea. She was straight forward, listened to us and gave us great advice. There was no pressure and she really fought for us when we needed her to. Kelly recommended all the people we needed to make our house better, who turned out to be awesome. Her office staff was amazing too. While we were gone, she went to our house periodically to make sure it was ok. After the closing, Kelly even helped us find another realtor out of state and interviewed them for us before choosing the best candidate. Who does that? Kelly Frumentino does! Overall, we had a great experience and would highly recommend the Honore and Kelly team to anyone who is buying or selling a house."



"Kelly and Honore were a pleasure to work with, they were professional, knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with. During an emotional process they made me feel comfortable. It was a great experience and would use them again and recommend them"



"Honore & Kelly have an impressive team that works well together to get the job done. Everyone that helped us along the way, especially their assistant Carina, responded quickly and knowledgeably to our needs."



"Honore and Kelly and their team were fantastic they thought of everything. From photos, to marketing, to last minute utilities steps prior to closing. Very responsive, and great realistic advice."



"It was a pleasure working with the Frumentino team. They worked hard to sell my home and get a price reflective of the quality and uniqueness it brings to Deerfield."



"Kelly and her team (Corina) are professional and helpful every step of the way. The years of experience in the area is extremely valuable, and the level of expertise is a tremendous help with all details, from showings & negotiation to closing specifics and sustained communication with the buyer (in our case). The transaction was smooth and closed on time."



"I would not hesitate to use Kelly Frumentino and her team again. Though everyone in our family lives out of Illinois she helped us sell a property in Illinois. Due to the fact that all but the initial meeting was done remotely communication was critical. Kelly's communication was timely, accurate and to the point. All interactions with Kelly's office (Corina) was equally professional. Clearly Kelly and her team run a top notch organization. What made us choose Kelly over the other real estate professionals that we interviewed was her knowledge of the local market as well as positive reviews that came from neighbors to the property that we sold. She was creative in the marketing and staging of the property. Since we were remote she helped to identify local trades people as necessary. You would be hard pressed to find a more effective real estate professional in that area."



"Honore & Kelly Frumentino helped us to sell our older brick ranch home in Deerfield and found us a ranch townhome in an active adult community in Grayslake, IL. The Frumentino Team knew we wanted to find a new home close to our married children and grandchildren. They worked hard to honor our request and get 5 stars for finding us the perfect new home. We absolutely love our spacious new townhome and the community we live in!!"
