Testimonials

Overall 5 star rating out of 45 reviews


"Kaari was extremely knowledgeable and listened to my interests - she made what could be a stressful process seem easy! Her professionalism and attention to detail was very much appreciated!"



"I couldn't have asked for a better realtor! As a first time home buyer, the process was scary and nerve-wracking. When Kaari stepped in, she helped ease some of my anxieties and made me much more aware of the process. She was very knowledgeable about the area and knew how to find places that filled my requirements. I had an awful, unusual buying experience but throughout the process, she was quick to respond to communications and kept on top of things that I felt others - my broker, my attorney, the seller - were being too lax about or letting fall through the cracks. She followed up for me, and ensured I had all of my questions answered. Without her, the process would have been much more daunting and stressful. I would highly recommend her to a friend (and in fact, I have and will continue to do so.)"



"Kaari is extremely responsive and detail-oriented. She provided quick and detailed answers to all questions and sought out expert opinions when I had specific questions about certain properties. She is great to work with."


"I can't say enough about Kaari as a person and as a broker. I found my dream apartment on our first viewing, and then she took me around the neighborhood to show me the top spots!"



"Kaari is amazing! First time working with a broker, she made it so easy! She answered all our questions in a reasonably quick time! She was patient and let us chat separately before letting her know our thoughts. She found us a great apartment and we can’t wait to move!"



"Kaari was exceptionally helpful in finding an apartment. My roommates and I were having a very difficult time finding an apartment back at the end of December and Kaari went above and beyond for us to make sure that we were able to find a place we were happy with, despite the poor weather and busy Holiday season.
She was always punctual to any showings and meetings. Truly an excellent communicator, with us and with the rental properties we attended.
I have the highest regard for her professionally, and she was generally a pleasure to work with."



"Kaari picked us up from another realtor who was unable to help us and was so patient and helpful - especially because we were looking for something ASAP. She has since kept in touch to check up on how we've been doing and I would 100% recommend her."



"Kaari was a great help in looking for my apartment especially as I am still relatively new to Chicago (and to renting). Being alone in the city, she was a trusted source of information and expectations when renting in Chicago."



"Kaari was an incredible broker--I'm was new to Chicago and had no idea about how to even begin my apartment hunt. Fortunately, Kaari is such an expert on all things Chicago and really knows her stuff. Not only did she stay on top of listings, she went out of her way to give me background on the pros/cons of neighborhoods as well as set up an in-depth schedule of MANY apartments when I was in town to apartment hunt over Memorial Day. She continued to search on my behalf after the holiday weekend and really went above and beyond to help me find the perfect place (sending me links/images, her POV on possible apts).She was always patient and always reachable and was a pleasure to work with across the board (as she responded very graciously to my multiple questions via text and email throughout the process)!

Since the initial apartment hunting process Kaari continues to go out of her way to ensure I'm happy in my home and is always thoughtfully checking in on my needs. When I'm ready to move to the next step (buying a place) I definitely intend to work with Kaari again."



"We had an excellent experience working with Kaari. She is professional and personable. She was understanding and accommodating to our busy schedules which made viewing and closing on the property a very pleasant process."



"Kaari is excellent. Throughout the process, she was extremely accommodating, capable, and conscientious. She was able to anticipate and meet all of our needs and do what a good real estate agent should: make moving that much less bothersome. She was on top of everything at all times and I trusted her absolutely. Extra credit: Kaari is also a very pleasant person. I was happy to have made her acquaintance."



"Kaari did a wonderful job taking us through the condo purchase process. She was very knowledgeable, diligent and conscientious. We were out of towners and she was vital with getting the condo ready with contractors before we moved. Couldn't have asked for a better agent."



"I really enjoyed working with Kaari. She was extremely helpful, responsive, and in-tune with what I was looking for. I was new to Chicago so I needed someone who had in depth knowledge of the entire city and the ability to help me find the perfect neighborhood. Kaari did just that. I definitely recommend working with her to find your next home."



"Kaari was very helpful, kind, and understanding within my search for a new home within a new location I was unfamiliar with. It took a visit or two for both of us to truly understand what I wanted and was looking for. She sent me new postings daily and or kept in touch to ensure she was doing her best to find me exactly what I wanted within my price range. Kaari stayed determined, even when I became distraught, and found me a beautiful home within plenty of time to move on the date that I wanted to. -Breanna"



"Kaari Kafer was so helpful! She went above and beyond to help me find a apartment. It was a tricky situation because I had to find an apartment in a very short time, but Kaari was able to find the perfect place. I am so happy with the neighborhood and overall condition of the apartment. I was very impressed with her as a realtor and friend!"



"Kaari is great! She rolled with me no matter what happened, even when I switched locations partway through the search. She is incredibly nice, very caring, and had a great handle of what I wanted and needed."



"Kaari's great - she's patient, diligent and meticulous in her work. She worked around my schedule and my budget, and helped me find the right home in the city. I would definitely recommend her for rentals in Chicago."



"Kaari is extremely responsive and places an emphasis on ensuring that her clients find a good fit. She is also very knowledgable about the city. As soon as I talked to Kaari about my ideal apartment and price range she shared a listing of locations within my criteria. She also updated this list daily and quickly set up showings for apartments I was interested in.

I would highly recommend Kaari for your next move!"



"Kaari was immensely helpful to me during my apartment search in Chicago. Within 48 hours of submitting my search criteria to her, she was able to provide me multiple listings. Showings were set up within 48 hours after that and ultimately I found my apartment within 2 weeks of our initial meeting.

After my move, Kaari followed up to make sure that the apartment was working out and even sent me a thoughtful housewarming gift. She's professional, efficient, and is a great partner to have on a search."



"Kaari was awesome! She was willing to drive all around to show me apartments because I was looking in different parts of Chicago. She was incredibly knowledgeable and allows followed through. Definitely recommend!"


"I have worked with Kaari for both rentals and purchasing properties. She was extremely helpful and found me the perfect places to match my needs. I would highly recommend working with her if you are looking to rent or buy a new home!"


"Kaari is an extraordinary broker in every way. She is patient, and listened to what we wanted. She took the time to find us the right place in the area of town we wanted. THANK YOU Kaari!"


"Wonderful service, Kaari instantly knew my specifications and found me several places within my budget. Very friendly, approachable and an excellent realtor. I highly recommend her service to future clients."


"Put simply, Kaari is the best! She's professional, personable and a pleasure to work with. This is the second time we chose her to help us find a new home, and we're so happy we did. She listened to our needs and wants and was able to show us options that fit beautifully. Thank you, Kaari!"


"Kaari, from our first meeting to closing, was a dream realtor. She was honest, genuine, and always took the time to talk me through the more complicated areas of buying my first home. I am so confident in my decision due to having her as a realtor, and I could not have asked for more."


"Kaari did a wonderful job. She was extremely responsive, thorough, and effective. She is very professional and delightfully personable. She never gets ruffled and always finds a solution. If I could give her more than five stars I would."



"Kaari is capable, conscientious, and amiable. I welcome the opportunity to give her a recommendation. I had previously worked with her and liked her enough to come back for seconds. During this move, what looked like a simple transaction ended up requiring more time and effort than she should have expected. Nonetheless, she was supportive throughout and impressed me again with her availability, flexibility, and thoroughness. I was happy to have her as my agent."


"We have now completed three transactions (two purchases and one sale) with Kaari and she has continued to do an outstanding job. We live about two hours from Chicago, so it was difficult for us to be in town to complete needed tasks such as cleaning, inspection, showings, etc. Kaari made it all possible to sell one property, buy another, help get contractors to do work and get us moved in within 1 month. She works hard to make sure her clients get what they need, is patient and not pushy. Is very knowledgable and gives good, sensible advise. Very pleased again."


"Working with Kaari has been an absolute pleasure! She listens to your wants and needs and works diligently to make sure that she finds a property that is the best fit for you. She's also incredibly supportive and helpful during viewings and closing on a property. I won't work with anyone else!"
