"Maureen was incredibly helpful in locating a wide range of properties for us to look at, advising us on details we hadn't considered, and helping us to weigh our options. This was the first time we had purchased a home in the Chicago market, so Maureen's network of providers for legal, mortgage, and inspection services was invaluable. Our search went quickly, and our purchase went smoothly, thanks to Maureen and her friendly professionalism."
"Maureen was wonderful. Extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood and so helpful. Patient beyond belief. A true professional."
"Maureen was unbelievably knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. We won a competitive bid situation and love our new home. She is fantastic!!"
"Maureen was a pleasure to work with on the purchase of my home. As someone who hadn't purchased a house before, she ensured that I knew what to expect every step of the way. She even brought me wardrobe boxes from another of her clients, which was a huge time savings during the move and reduced the stress tremendously. Maureen is truly knowledgeable about the neighborhood and was a great resource in helping me make a great decision. I love my new house!"
"Maureen is a total pro - calm and cool both smart and strategic. She advocated for us on our sale and exceeded our expectations. I Highly recommend Maureen."
"Maureen went above and beyond to make sure all lines of communication were open and all questions answered. The process lasted over 8 months and she was consistently there for us with suggestions and advice. We really appreciated her hard work."
"Maureen took a personal interest in helping me sell my home and find a place to live at a difficult time in my life. She was a moral support all the way through the process. I am very happy with the results and recommend Maureen's services to one and all."
"Maureen is a very experienced broker who has an excellent feel for the market. She understands buyers and sellers well. Probably most important she has a dogged determination to get the deal done. She does not hesitate to attack and solve problems and will go the extra mile to make things happen. She is the kind of broker you want on your side!!"
"We were struggling with our architects floor plan, which did not completely work for our life style and cost way more than our budget could accommodate. Plus, we wanted a plan that would make it easy to sell when we were ready. We like our architect, but he does not know much about sales, and we did not know what changes he should make. We started looking for a real estate agent who would be willing to help us with our remodeling project. When Maureen told us about House Coach, it seemed like a perfect fit. She reviewed our architectural plans with an eye toward resale and made suggestions, which reduced our cost and resulted in a floor plan that we are really excited about. House Coach kept us from making costly mistakes. We cant wait now for our amazing new/old home to be finished!"
""Working with Maureen was a pleasure. She was able to advise me on the best way to prepare for putting my condo on the market. I followed her advice on doing a few updates and found a buyer during the very first open house. I would certainly engage Maureen again for future real estate services. She also helped me in finding my new home in the Edgewater neighborhood. She's an expert in this area.""
""Maureen is described by her clients as a real gem: an outstanding resource for the most important purchases and decisions of their lives. Often traumatic and filled with trepidation the process can be very difficult for some people. These clients reported to me that Maureen was able to assuage their fears with her professionalism and wisdom and they we are to achieve MORE than what they expected. I have had several of these people become clients of mine and Maureen's ability to put them in a house with precisely the right characteristics meant that they got the optimum value and the space they needed to create the lives they dreamed of.""
""Maureen was our realtor when we purchased our house in Lakewood Balmoral 4 years ago. With Maureen as our fearless leader, my wife and I felt that we had a real partner who understood what we were looking for. I would not hesitate recommending her to anyone looking for a real estate agent. As a matter of fact, I have since recommended her to friends several times with great results. She is extremely knowledgeable and savvy about Chicago neighborhoods. I've got to believe she is the go to agent in Edgewater, Andersonville and Lakewood Balmoral.""
""When we were ready to sell our home, there was no question that we would work with Maureen. She knew our home, our neighborhood and the right strategies to get the best price, fast. She made some great recommendations to us for ways to effectively show the home, developed a solid pricing and marketing strategy, and worked on our timetable. She did not disappoint! We sold it fast, and at a great price! If you have a chance to work with Maureen, take it!!""
""Maureen is part therapist, part designer, part market analyst and ALL real estate wonder woman! The picture of patience, she led me through every house in my neighborhood for years until the right one finally came on the market. She worked diligently to close the deal, help with the financing and held my hand through the whole process. She has a limitless Rolodex and can get anything painted, re-wired, plumbed, packed and moved in a blink. And she is one of the most delightful people I've ever met. The point? Hire her, immediately!""
""We referred Maureen to our friend who purchased property through Maureen. Maureen was very good at identifying the right type of property and needs of our friend. We will continue doing business with Maureen in the future."
"Maureen was absolutely phenomenal with the entire process of getting the house cleared out, cleaned up, and the entire selling process. I couldn't have asked for a better broker."
"Maureen's presentation and sale references in dealing with estate sales was a huge step above any other agent we interviewed to represent the sale of the estate property. She went above and beyond in handling the preparation for sale and the sale itself. We are extremely pleased with the end results and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property in the Chicago area."
"Buying or selling Maureen will stick with you until the transaction is complete! She is also a great resource for many other relevant trades that may be useful to get a property in good shape. She always has an accurate picture of what's happening in the market place."
"Maureen sold my house in five days!"
"I have worked with a few other realtors in the past however can say, unequivocally, that Maureen is the one of the best. She knows the Chicago market, knows whats happening in the real estate industry, and knows the right questions to ask to help her clients make informed decisions. Maureen helped me close on a short sale after 11 months of multiple negotiations. Most would have given up long before then. Im well aware that without her dedication, diligence, creativity and most importantly, her persistence, I would not be enjoying my fabulous new home right now. I would highly recommend Maureen Murnane to anyone interested in working with someone who goes above and beyond and has the best interest of her clients in mind."
"Maureen Murnane is simply terrific. She is the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with, and we would highly recommend her. She is effective, charming, warm, knowledgeable, easy to work with and very efficient."
"Maureen is excellent."
"I don't know how I would have gotten through the whole process without Maureen. She walked me through everything, since I was buying my first home and had no clue about what I was doing. She went above and beyond what I thought I should expect from an agent."
"Purchasing a home is one of the most important financial decisions of your life. It's also one of the most stressful processes to go through. You want to have the person who not only has the experience and knowledge to help guide you, but also the ability to talk you down from the ledge. Maureen goes above and beyond expectations to make sure that you're taken care of. She doesn't treat you like a client. She treats you as her friend and future neighbor. Your best first decision is to choose Maureen as your agent."
"Maureen Murnane helped make selling in a difficult market a reality for us by bringing in clients that did not necessarily specify wanting a home just like ours. Whether it was price, size, or location, Maureen worked to broaden the potential buyer's interest in areas they had not considered."
"The broker went above and beyond her standard duties on many occasions, demonstrating a level of service that out-paces other realtors, and she always offered her expertise with grace. I trusted her implicitly."
