"Kathleen was wonderful from the moment we started speaking about selling our condo. She was particularly helpful, as we don't live in Chicago at the moment. She had a good eye for staging, which is important when you have renters in your unit and was flexible with the tenants from the day we put it up for sale. I would highly recommend Kathleen as she makes the stressful process of selling a home much more seamless"
"Beyond phenomenal! Huge thank you to Kathleen, Meg and the rest of her @Properties team. The experience of selling my first home could not have been more easy and straightforward."
"We have bought and sold 7 homes in the last 10 years in 3 states and I can honestly say this was the best experience we have had and I will attribute it to Kathleen and Mary Beth.We always felt fully informed on the market conditions. The responsiveness to our needs as buyers was the best we've ever experienced. Not to mention they are two of the nicest people you will ever meet"
"I just sold my 4 unit apartment building in North Center and Kathleen Malone was my agent. When I called Kathleen on a Friday to see if she would list my building she was on vacation, but told me that when she got home on Monday she would drive by my building and get me some comps. I had a 15 page list of comps on Monday night. Now that is some great customer service. She and I then met to discuss an asking price. We came to an agreement and we sold the building very quickly and for within $10,000 of our asking price. She negotiated for us to get that price. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and so easy to work with. She handled everything with my tenants so I did not have to. I can't say enough about how happy I am with my experience with Kathleen. She was spectacular."
"We just finished our fourth transaction with Kathleen and team. I've not yet written a review, and there are many reasons we keep coming back. Kathleen, along with everyone who works with her, is professional, responsive, and trustworthy. Because of Kathleen's experience, guidance, straightforward advice and negotiating skills, we were recently able to sell our condo in the City very quickly and for more than anticipated, and to purchase a home in the suburbs for a great price in a great location and in a bidding war. I would not trust anyone else with our real estate transactions"
"Kathleen was an absolute pleasure to work with in the purchase of my first home. She truly listened to my wants and needs and was extremely knowledgeable about the market and listings in my target area. She was extremely attentive and quick to respond to all correspondence and the final negotiation was very smooth for all parties involved. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends buying in the Chicagoland area."
"Kathleen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She answered all of our many questions clearly and thoroughly, and helped get our house sold in six days! Throughout the process she went above and beyond -- helping to coordinate some work we were having done before listing the house, and even bringing over some of her own books and knick-knacks for the photo shoot and staging. Highly recommend!"
"From the first moment we met with Kathleen we knew we were in good professional hands. Our whole experience could not have been better. We received expert advice, their marketing materials are second to none and Kathleen guided us flawlessly through the whole process. We would enthusiastically recommend Kathleen and her team to anyone-Gold Coast Seller"
"Kathleen did an incredible job selling our house. She has a great deal of knowledge about the housing market and spent countless hours answering every one of our questions. She was accessible and always willing to explain the details of each step of the process. She is driven, sharp, and the definition of a straight shooter. On top of it all, she is a pleasure to work with, and we always felt that she genuinely cared about us and our family. We cannot recommend her enough-West Town Seller"
"Jackie was everything that my wife and I could have wanted from a real estate agent. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped us search for homes in multiple neighborhoods in Chicago. Also, Jackie was very responsive and always there to take us on visits to multiple homes every weekend.Once we found homes that we liked, Jackie did a great job of helping us determine the value of the homes. I was most impressed by how Jackie never pressured us to purchase a home - she did not hesitate to let us know if she thought that an asking price was too high.Jackie was very helpful during the closing process. There was a lot of back-and-forth between the parties during the closing process, but Jackie was always there to support us and again never pressured us into buying the home.Everything ultimately worked out, and we love our new home. We are so grateful for Jackie's help and will definitely work with Jackie again when we are ready to move in the future!-Avondale Buyer"
"With our growing family, it was time to upgrade in size. Kathleen and Mary Beth helped us quickly sell our two bedroom condo in the loop and assisted in closing on our dream house in Old Irving Park. They made the experience very personal while always remaining professional. They were very respectful of the time and efforts we spent rehabbing our condo and worked hard to get us a great price,(highest on record for a 2 BR in the building). We were very impressed with Kathleen and Mary Beth and highly recommend them for your real estate needs-Old Irving Buyer"
"Wish I could give Kathleen 6 stars!! She was amazing on both sides of our move. She went above and beyond to walk us through and be there for every step of buying our home and selling our condo. She also gave us really good advice for getting our condo ready to sell and I personally credit her wisdom and hard work for our sale - we were under contract 24 hrs after we listed and got an offer above list. Not only that she personally helped us deal with issues that came up during attorney review. If you want a hard working, honest, and knowledgeable realtor who is not pushy, Kathleen is the best.-Lincoln Park Seller"
"Couldn't have had a better team ! Both are extremely professional, responsive, personable and knowledgeable. They saw our condo, made suggestions on how it could show well, priced it perfectly, and it sold in two weeks ! Their suggestions/advice from start to finish was spot on. The buyers liked them as much as we do - that's a testimonial-Streeterville Seller"
"Are you in search of "the best real estate agent in Chicago"? Kathleen & Mary Beth Malone are a dynamic powerhouse of resources and information. We approached Chicago with very little information (this was a company relocation) and Mary Beth immediately put us at ease. Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, considerate, available at a moments notice. Mary Beth quickly helped us to hone our search to a "fit", tailor made for us. We quickly made an offer and closed the deal! This team is the virtual gold standard for what real estate agents should be like. Don't hesitate, give them a call and see if they are a fit for you?-Gold Coast Buyer"
"This is the second property Kathleen Malone has sold for us. She was/is incredibly knowledgeable, sophisticated, capable and most importantly psychologically savvy. She deals with her clients, potential buyers and fellow brokers with both warmth and firmness when necessary. I(we) can not praise and recommend her any more! She and her staff are simply outstanding! -Loop Seller"
"We had the good fortune of meeting Kathleen by chance when we were looking at condos in one of the bldgs. she represented. We were so impressed with her candor, easy & sincere style, and informative knowledge base about the pros and cons of bldgs. that we decided to cont. to use her until we found the place we ultimately bought. Despite the fact that the home we were selling was not in her major selling territory, we subsequently decided to list our home with her. Again, our decision was based on her conscientious & straight forward manner and her genuinely delightful and pleasant interaction style of dealing with people & situations. That coupled by her uncanny ability to anticipate and accommodate all of our requests and concerns informatively and responsively. I do not hesitate in giving her the highest of ratings and support!-Lincoln Park Seller"
"Bought my first place with Kathleen in 2009 and am still soooo happy with it. She was so patient and not pushy and helped me find the truly perfect place. Too happy to move soon, but when I do I am def using her again.-Lincoln Park Seller"
"I absolutely sing the praises of Kathleen and Mary Beth Malone and recommend them to the utmost highest rating on every level! Kathleen made me feel like I was the most important client! She responded rapidly to every inquiry and detail of my condo from start to finish! I trusted her advice and expertise 100 percent during every negotiation and aspect of the condo sale process and she was in my corner every step of the way! She went above and beyond even when I needed things done last minute and took charge of responsibilities to make my life easier! The Malone women are top notch and I would only use them and have recommended them to every friend and family member! I can't thank them enough for going above and beyond for me! -Ukrainian Village Seller"
"I have bought 6 properties in different cities. Kathleen is by far the most impressive representative with whom I have worked. She was all on. Need to see a place? She is on it. Have a question? She will respond quickly. Further, she is very pleasant to work with. You cannot get any better than Kathleen Malone.-Lincoln Park Buyer"
"In a financially down market Kathleen sold our Condo for us in a relatively short period of time putting us at ease and got a us a very fair price. She was an absolute pleasure to work with; answering our questions, taking care of all of the negotiating and details, and never alienating anyone in the process.-Loop Seller"
"Kathleen help us with our purchase of a condo downtown. Really great experience because of her. Knew we were in the market and let us know right away when this condo came up. Thought it was exactly what we were looking for and she was right. Did a great job of helping us deal with the developer and made sure we got a good deal. She's not our realtor anymore, she's our friend. Still always stays in touch after 7 years.-Loop Buyer"
"My husband & I met Kathleen around two years ago. We were very impressed w/ her knowledge of the market, and the strategy she presented as to how she would proceed in selling our condo at The Ambassador.With the assistance of Mary Beth, they were both quite persevering in marketing our home to a high end clientele. They kept us apprised after every showing demonstrating & confirming their ability to handle the potential buyers ,and their professional ease in dealing w/ the other brokers.If you're looking for a strong team to handle the buying or selling of your residence, look no further. You will not be disappointed.-Gold Coast Seller"
"Kathleen helped us in our search for a new home. She provided invaluable market expertise and was very responsive to our requests. Although we ended up adding on to our own home, instead of moving, we were very appreciative of her service, and will definitely use her in the future .-Edgebrook Buyer"
"We had a wonderful experience with Kathleen and Mary Beth when we bought our first home. We looked in the Bucktown, Wicker Park and Ukranian Village neighborhoods and they found us our perfect home.-Bucktown Buyer"

They are very professional, accessible, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. They met all of our needs and more with a responsive and friendly attitude. We sold quickly and bought our new condo with the help of their expertise. I highly recommend them to all. South Loop Buyer"
"I worked with Mary Beth and Kathleen on an apartment listing in the Gold Coast. The apartment was dated (more than 20 years old) and needed help to get to its full potential. Mary Beth and Kathleen completed a market analysis and laid out my options: selling as-is or renovating and getting the best possible return on my investment. I decided on the latter. We completed a walkthrough of the space and discussed what buyers are currently looking for. With their suggestions and guidance I completed the work on a full wall-to-wall renovation with excellent results. They staged the space beautifully and the apartment sold sooner than I expected at close (a couple thousand shy) to the record price in the building! The return on my investment profited six figures!They are knowledgeable, straight-forward, professional and kind. I am currently looking at two other projects and will be happy to work with Mary Beth and Kathleen again. I wouldn't trust my business with anyone else.-Gold Coast Seller"
"Mary Beth and Kathleen are an outstanding duo! Mary Beth listed and sold our house in 2014, which turned out to be a much more emotional roller coaster ride than I anticipated! Mary Beth was such a help, every step of the way. She gave us some great tips for staging (she has really excellent taste and style and even loaned me a few accessory items to make things more attractive for photos and showings), helped us determine a pricing strategy and got the marketing pieces pulled together in just a few days. She even advised the day of the week to list for best results. She nailed it because we sold the house in two days with multiple offers for over the asking price. WOW! You can't ask for more than that! There were other houses on the block around us that took months to sell, so it's definitely not just a hot market.After the offer is accepted, it's a long way to closing with all the contingencies, and that's where the roller coaster ride started. Mary Beth talked to me practically every day keeping us informed and up-to-date on how things were progressing, meeting the buyers, inspector, the appraiser, etc. at our house. She was so gracious and patient throughout the process.Mary Beth then worked with us on purchasing a six-unit investment property. It was a total pleasure working with her and Kathleen. I can't recommend them enough!-Avondale Seller & Buyer"
"We have bought, sold and searched for numerous properties over the yearsin LI/NY, NYC, Northern suburbs of Chicago, City of Chicago, Maryland and Florida, so we have dealt with many many real estate agentsand over ALL these years and ALL these Real Estate professionals, we can think of only one other (in NYC) that operates with the excellence, knowledge, professionalism, and overall outstanding character. In our opinion, Kathleen is ONE of the VERY BEST! We are thrilled and very comfortable to have Kathleen represent us and our homes.-Gold Coast Seller"
"I recently worked with Kathleen on my sale and purchase and had an excellent experience. She sold my condo in less than 60 days time for a record price (for both the building and neighborhood) and then within a day was able to coordinate showings and execute a smooth negotiation on my purchase to accommodate a quick closing. Kathleen was extremely knowledgeable about the inventory in the Loop & Gold Coast which led to a successful negotiation on both the sale and purchase; her market expertise and helpful referrals were an asset from start to finish. Throughout both transactions, Kathleen went above and beyond the level of typical brokerage service and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago.-Loop Seller & Gold Coast Buyer"

She is very professional and attentive to detail, responsive to requests and questions, generated significant activity, and provided insightful advice during negotiations. I recommend Kathleen to all my friends and family and hope to work with her again in the future.-River West Seller"
"I listed my condo with Malone Residential and within days it was under contract. They were so helpful through the process and knew the market and how to price to sell. They were there every step of the way with expert knowledge of each step and process. I would recommend them to anyone. Maureen Dine Glynn was my realtor there and she was wonderful!"
