Clients are saying:


"We worked with Janelle to buy and sell our Chicago condo. To say that she was amazing is an understatement. She was knowledgable, responsive, and honest. We were working with her from out of state when trying to sell our condo and she took care of everything from finding painters and handymen to giving us options of staging.

Janelle was a great consultant as we went through the back and forth in the contract process as well. She gave us good advice and always keep our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend Janelle and her team to help you buy or sell your new home!!"
