"Moving is definitely a pain and a lot of work. Especially for already busy people with kids and jobs and everyday craziness going on. There's really only one reason we were able to make it happen. We worked with the most fabulous Real Estate Broker, Lisa Rudisel. She was incredible from the start of the selling process to closing our sale and new place. We could not have done it without her.She did absolutely everything to make the process as painless as possible for us. She helped us stage our place to sell. She made really amazing recos on work to do before listing and what we didn't need to worry about. Then...she sold our place in one day pre-market. It was an absolute dream! It was quick + without a million showings and for a price we were thrilled with. She stuck with us as we bought a place we absolutely love + still can't believe we actually moved into!If you're thinking about buying or selling in Chicago....think about talking with Lisa. She's a ton of fun to work with. Scrappy, hard working and gets it done! Ryan and I couldn't recommend her enough. Happy to talk with you more about our experience.Thank you, Lisa, for making it happen! Ryan & Nicole A."



"Lisa sold our house in less than a weekend! It went on the market on Friday afternoon and by Monday morning, we had 4 offers! She was wonderful to work with as was her associate, Diana, and really helped us keep all the disruption to a minimum. I would definitely recommend working with Lisa and will do so on our next project!"



"I will never use another real estate agent in Chicago. Lisa is as good as it gets."


"I met Lisa when I first moved to Chicago. She helped my roommate and I get our first condo rental in Lincoln Park--it was perfect and so much better than anything we had tried to find on our own. Fast forward a couple of years and my husband and I began our search for our first condo. To say that we are particular is an understatement. As embarrassing as it is to say, it took us two years to find the perfect place for us--which is a huge testament to Lisa's patience and willingness to work with her clients. Throughout that time, she never became frustrated or annoyed, and when we finally found the place, Lisa helped us navigate the buying process. She has strong relationships with consummate professionals in the industry, and we felt that she was there for us every step of the way. In addition to Lisa's knowledge of the real estate market and her go-to team of professionals, Lisa's demeanor made the process less stressful. She was always available and would calm any fears that we had. She talked through scenarios and situations thoroughly, and we never felt like Lisa didn't have time for us. I would definitely recommend Lisa to friends in the future!"



"Lisa went out of her way to make sure our family (especially) our children felt comfortable and happy. We couldn"



"Lisa is the absolute best. She went above and beyond for us and is the reason we got our dream house!"



"Lisa is awesome. We had some difficulty with one of the owner's we were working with, but Lisa was very informative throughout it all. We ended up finding an awesome apartment thanks to Lisa."



"Lisa did a fantastic job in selling our home. She did a thorough job in researching the market place and guided us in our listing. We were on the market for less than 30 days with a very attractive offer which we accepted. I would highly recommend her."



"Lisa did a very thorough job in researching the availability of other comparable units and assisting in setting our price. Our unit was on the market for only three weeks with a great deal of activity. She was awesome. We would recommend her to all of our friends and family."



"Lisa did a fabulous job navigating us through a competitive market to find the perfect place and close quickly. She not only helped us find the house, but has been a tremendous resource for everything we need to make it a home- from recommending a great inspector, a fantastic floor contractor, to decorating ideas, she is the best agent to take care of your family."



"Fabulous! Lisa was motivated and great to work with! Would definitely use her again and also refer her to anyone I know who is looking to sell their home."



"Lisa was wonderful to work with. She understood exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! She went over and above what a typical agent would do."

"My roommate and I were renting our first apartment and Lisa was extremely patient throughout the whole process. She gave honest feedback and was a great asset to have. Thanks again Lisa!"



"Lisa was exceptional! And she is definitely the most efficient, organized, and patient person I have ever met! She went above and beyond to help my roommate and I find an apartment that we loved with only a few weeks before our previous lease was up. She showed us places that were in our price range and that fit all of our other requests as well (which definitely wasn't easy). Lisa also helped us get this apartment in a very competitive market because she had given us a list of documents to have ready to go for the application process. We were able to apply within a few hours of seeing the apartment with her help!

My roommate and I then had some issues with our landlord during the move-in process, and Lisa ended up helping us solve them. She was able to get us in contact with the owner of the management company so that everything could be figured out in a timely manner.

I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Lisa helped us buy our first condo, and then helped us sell it three years later. She was super helpful in answering any and all questions... as first time buyers and then sellers, we had a lot of them! Both processes were made easy and painless because of Lisa and her team. Oh, and after only 7 days on the market, she brought us an above asking price offer! We highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell!"



"We worked with Lisa in January 2017. She understood exactly what we were looking for. She showed us options that met our criteria. At each location she pointed out the pros and cons to help us choose the perfect place. She provided additional insight on things that we never even thought about. She made the process painless for a quick close. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! She went over and above what a typical agent would do.""



"I relocated to Chicago a few months ago, Lisa graciously took the time to drive me around the city so that I could find a neighborhood that was both safe and in line with my list of ammenities. She negotiated my lease terms with ease and treated my family as if we were million dollar buyers. I will definitely reach out to her again when it is time to purchase!!!"



"I had the pleasure of working with Lisa in both a direct sale and multiple referrals. She is a very professional, diligent and extremely hard working individual. She has a great sense for real estate and a logical approach to working through complicated issues. No matter the circumstance or situation, Lisa has always approached everything with a positive, rational attitude and is truly an asset to any transaction."



"No question in my mind as to whether or not I would recommend Lisa. She knows Chicago and she will go to all ends to make you completely happy. Lisa has helped us rent one of our Condo's on multiple occasions and helped us sell another. We trust Lisa with all of our Real Estate needs since we live out of town now. She is always willing to pitch in to do whatever it is we need."



"Lisa was very knowledgeable about the areas we looked for housing and was able to find us a condo we fell in love with within about 3 weeks. Unfortunately there were multiple bids on the condo and we got into a bidding war and after looking at comps in the building after we bought I believe we overpaid by about 10k."



"Lisa has been an incredible realtor for my family to work with over the years. Lisa originally helped my husband find his first apartment in Chicago when he was relocating from Boston. She also went out with us apartment and later condo hunting on three separate occasions - ultimately each of those times we decided that our changing life circumstances and other financial commitments didn't allow us to move. Never once did she make us feel like we'd wasted her time. When we finally knew it was time for us to buy, we were looking with both working full-time jobs, raising two small children, and my husband was in school part-time at DePaul. Lisa was able to navigate around our crazy schedules and show us what we were interested in in diverse parts of the city. Even my kids loved her and spending our weekends looking for homes was actually fun! We are content in our condo for now, but if we do move again in the future, Lisa will be our first call."



"We worked with Lisa and this point own 2 homes-Thanks to her! She is very professional and puts her clients first. Yes, when I said I was paranoid of cats and hence couldn't enter a unit. She literally picked and put the cat in the bathroom for me to view the unit, since she did not want me to miss out! We found our 1st home within a week. She is very receptive and extremely flexible. She helped connect us with the right people for loans and inspections(especially helpful since we were first time homeowners back in the day). Also, put us in touch with a handyman for us to add some personal touches to call this new house home. She is wonderful to work with and is very patient. I'll definitely work with no one but her. She also helped us buy our investment property and helped us rent it out too(esp during winter and with our busy schedules). She is a Rockstar!"



"After a couple owners in my building sold for less than what I though they can get, I was skeptical of what my condo would sell for. Lisa showed me what comparable units in my neighborhood were selling for and assured me that we could sell for a price I would be happy with. Sure enough, after the first weekend on the market I had 2 full price offers. I would have no problem recommending Lisa’s services to anybody who is looking to buy or sell a home."



"Lisa helped us buy and sell our condo/new home in record time! We found our dream house quicker than expected, and Lisa helped us win the home and walked us through negotiations and inspection. Since we found the home so fast, she also helped us beautifully stage our home and took amazing photos getting the condo sold in about a week. She is a joy to work with, and even helped us through some pretty intense moving emergencies. We owe her big - everyone should hire Lisa!"



"Lisa is fabulous! She sold my condo in a day and then also found me another great place to live! She was very involved in the process and held my hand every step of the way. I would HIGHLY recommend her!"

"Lisa was wonderful to work with. She understood exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! She went over and above what a typical agent would do."


"Lisa is an absolutely pro. She is an expert with experience, she knows the ins and outs of the market and is willing to put in the extra time and effort to make the process smooth and successful. From helping us stage to selling our place in 1 day pre-market (for asking price!) ... to buying our new one... she made the process turnkey and easy for our family. We recommend Lisa to all of our friends... you'll be lucky to have Lisa on your side to work through your buy, sell or both!"


""Lisa guided me through the buying process and connected me with an inspector, a lender and an attorney who also were wonderful to work with. Lisa came up with a powerful evidence based offer and negotiated our way to an accepted offer with a difficult seller on the other side of the table. I appreciated Lisa bringing her critical eye to my inspections and helping me think through resolutions to the items that were pointed out. I will gladly recommend Lisa to any friend of mine who is looking to rent or buy.""


"Looking for a realtor? Mine drank wine with me and celebrated the return of a stolen wagon, sold my condo in two weeks and helped me win a bidding war for our current amazing house, rented a uhaul when our movers ditched us and helped us move until 3am, sent us tacos when our baby was in the ICU, and sent us flowers on our anniversary. If you don't hire Lisa Rudisel you're an idiot. ;)"


"Lisa was great...at every step of the process! She coached us through understanding the market, took the extra time to understand our motivations and ensure our pricing/marketing was aligned, etc. She also brings interior design and marketing expertise, which allowed us to attract a ton of attention (and most importantly, the attention of someone willing to pay what we thought the property was worth!)."



"Lisa made me extremely comfortable as a first-time buyer. Knowledgeable, resourceful, and always available - Lisa made the whole process painless and even fun! It was easy to put my trust not only in her, but in the brokers and lawyer she recommended. I can't thank her enough for this beautiful condo I now get to call home!"


"Lisa is amazing. She makes a very difficult process easy and takes the ownership to see things through to completion. She cares and it shows. She takes her listings personally and works tirelessly to ensure all your needs are met. I would highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to work with her in the future."


"Lisa did a tremendous job in helping us find the right property. Her overall knowledge of the market and neighborhoods we were unfamiliar with was invaluable. We were also impressed with her expertise in rehab work and vision for what a property "could be."We would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy in Chicago."


"Lisa did a great job with our property. She was responsive, reliable, and frankly, took all of the work out of for us! I would highly recommend Lisa the next time you are looking for a broker!"


"Lisa was the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. Not only was she patient, flexible, and honest about what we saw - she saved us when our movers didn't show up. She rented a UHaul and made sure we were out of our old place in time for the walk through in the morning- on her own time. She's a star and I would never use anyone else. You're lucky to have her!"



"Lisa has been a great asset to our company Lifetime Remodeling. Her knowledge and level of experience exceeds average in many categories involving real estate. I will gladly recommend her expertise to any individual. Working with her for years, we've build a relationship that involves a great deal of trust and zero doubt. Thank you Lisa for being practically perfect.Devon"


"Lisa is the best! She sold our condo in nine days, and we got above our list price! She's so helpful throughout the entire process. I recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell a home contacts Lisa!"


"Lisa helped me purchase my condo in record time. She was wonderful for showings, rapidly responding to all paperwork items, and in general extremely efficient and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her services."


"Fabulous! Lisa was motivated and great to work with! Would definitely use her again and also refer her to anyone I know who is looking to sell their home."


"Lisa did a great job listing our place, pictures looked awesome and open houses had a lot of traffic. Contract in 5 days was very impressive!"



"Lisa is the best! She was so helpful and efficient. She got the job done super fast and both parties were very happy. She's great!"


"Lisa was amazing! She had great tips for staging and the photos were amazing. We were able to sell our house in 1 weekend with very minimal disturbance to our daily lives which was important to us. It was so great to work with her and I've told all my friends and family to use her. We'll definitely be repeat customers!"


"Lisa did a fabulous job navigating us through a competitive market to find the perfect place and close quickly. She not only helped us find the house, but has been a tremendous resource for everything we need to make it a home- from recommending a great inspector, a fantastic floor contractor, to decorating ideas, she is the best agent to take care of your family."


"Lisa did a very thorough job in researching the availability of other comparable units and assisting in setting our price. Our unit was on the market for only three weeks with a great deal of activity. She was awesome. We would recommend her to all of our friends and family."



"Lisa was referred from a friend and was really great and always helpful. My roommate and I were looking for our first apartment in the city. Not only did Lisa setup listings for apartments that she found, we also did some looking on our own and she gladly setup showings for those locations as well. She even sent us some moving materials to make sure that we were very well prepared. I highly recommend Lisa!!"


"Lisa was wonderful. Very professional, courteous and prompt. Lines of communication were always open they had very quick response time. I would highly recommend her for any future real estate opportunities."



"Lisa was amazing! She was able to work around our schedules and help us find an amazing place despite our many picky requirements. The property we found was not available via sites like Craigslist, Zillow and Domu, so without Lisa we never would have known about it. On top of everything, she helped us negotiate and alter the lease to accommodate some changes we wanted despite the fact that the other broker for the property was being quite difficult."


"Lisa Rudisel is fantastic!! She went way above and beyond and was very helpful and supportive the entire way through. She is AWESOME!"


"We loved working with Lisa Rudisel. She is an excellent realtor who I would recommend to anyone looking to buy around Chicago. She originally helped my husband find an apartment when he relocated here from Massachusetts in 2009. She has helped us three different times since then to either look for apartments or houses. On those occasions, we ended up not moving for financial reasons, but Lisa never failed to help us with whatever we needed nor did she grow impatient when we changed our minds. This time, we were under a time crunch because our lease was ending, and Lisa worked in order to arrange appointments for us around our work schedules. Even our kids love her and actually enjoyed going out to look at houses because she made it so fun! Lisa is very personable and easy to talk to, so it always felt like we were just hanging out with a friend versus it just being a business deal. Once again, I highly recommend Lisa to anyone in need of a realtor!"


"Lisa was first just our agent, but became our friend. We respect her as a person and for all her real estate knowledge. We trust her guidance in helping us make decisions about different real estate ventures. - Tim H."


"I've worked with Lisa twice - once to list a condo for rental, and once to purchase a new condo. Both times I clearly told her my best-case outcome before we began, and both times she exceeded the best case scenario. First she showed my rental condo aggressively, negotiated hard with the tenants, and got me a 2 year tenant at over asking price. When I sought to purchase a new condo, she found me an excellent property and remained my advocate during the inspection and attorney review. It was a long search, but thanks to her patience and understanding of what I was looking for, I found the perfect property and got a great price."



"Lisa is a true professional. She listens to your needs and is determined to help you find a place you can call home. Lisa will go above and beyond for her clients, which is not something you come across every day. I have already referred Lisa to a number of folks and will continue to do so. - Sharifa A."



"Lisa was the absolute BEST! It was such a luxury to work with her, and I know we only found the perfect new home because of her. - Hilary & Billy B."



"I cannot say enough great things about Lisa. She really listened to us about the type of place we wanted, and showed us a handful of places we would be happy to live. She worked very hard and went out of her way to find us somewhere we would love (which we did!). She was professional, personable, and a pleasure to work with, and I have already recommended her to friends of mine who have recently moved to Chicago. Overall, a really great experience! Thanks Lisa! - Emmy B."



"Lisa is a complete concierge service. Easy to get a hold of, quick to respond and most of all excellent results. You make the process of selling and buying a home enjoyable again. Thank you! - Jon H."


""Lisa is professional and knowledgeable with great communication skills. She provided excellent service for clients on both sides of a transaction." Elizabeth H."


""Lisa was extremely helpful during the time we needed her the most; the contract negotiation and closing processes. She was great at talking us through the contract stages, listening to our needs and concerns while offering great feedback. In addition, Lisa has a vast knowledge of the closing procedures and expertly helped us navigate through, making a stressful situation much easier to manage." -Cameron M. & Liz H."



"Lisa did a great job in assisting us with successfully obtaining our real estate property. She had resources such as a great mortgage broker and attorney all working together to make this transaction happen. I will certainly use her services again and will happily refer her to all of my friends and family."


"Lisa was professional, courteous and hard-working. She was thorough with her communication and set reasonable expectations for our leasing process. We have been very happy with her work and will continue to utilize Lisa for future needs."


"Lisa was the best. There are a million realtors to choose from, but she has the right combination of knowledge, experience and a friendly approachable demeanor."



"There isn't a better team of Real Estate professionals Lisa Rudisel's team. If I had to choose just one agent, my choice would be Lisa Rudisel. Her skills are ridonkulous!"


"Lisa was exceptional! She placed our condo up for rent on a Tuesday and by Thursday we had a renter! Lisa's professionalism, timeliness, and personability made our experience great! We certainly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or rent. We plan to use her again one day when we're ready to sell!"


"Lisa was great. Throughout the entire process she was a tremendous help and always available. As a first-time home buyer, I couldn't have asked for a better experience and feel lucky to have had Lisa on my side."


"Lisa is amazing! Very helpful and very understanding by not pushing us into something we weren't comfortable with. Highly recommended!"
