"Nancy is a true professional."


"Nancy Karp is, by far, the best Real-estate agent I have ever worked with. We owned a modest home in Highland Park and was being sold due to a contentious divorce. Nancy (and her assistant Joe Gerber) showed the utmost professionalism, courtesy and compassion throughout the process. She was Switzerland! She met with us individually and addressed our concerns. She toured our home multiple times prior to going on the market, giving advice and recommending subtle changes to show our home in the best possible light. We had showings within 24 hours of going on the market and 12 showings with the first week. I truly feel Nancy put as much effort into our home as she does for her million dollar listings. Every text and email was answered the same day, sometimes as late as 11:30pm...Sorry! I also used Nancy to locate a condominium here in Highland Park as well. Once I finally narrow my needs down, I was signing documents within a few days. I do not have enough good thing to say about my experience with Nancy Karp. I also must acknowledge her assistant, Joe Gerber who will be a phenomenal real-estate agent himself one day!"


"Nancy, I want to thank you again for your help in selling my house. It was a heavy weight on me, and there were some unusual twists and turns in the process. You were a voice of knowledge and guidance for me, and I feel relieved to put the house in good hands."


"I was very pleased with the entire process from start to finish. You can depend on Nancy to be your true advocate in a professional and attentive manner."


"Nancy was great. She did everything she could to help me sell the house."


"Nancy Karp is an excellent agent. She made the entire house-buying process easy, quick, and enjoyable. She was a great negotiator and represented us in a respectful manner. We'd definitely recommend Nancy to anyone looking for an agent who they can depend on and is enjoyable to work with during the entire process."


"Nancy was great. Very responsive and knowledgeable. We loved working with her and would recommend her without reservation."


"Nancy did a tremendous job, with both our sale and our subsequent purchase, and we could not be more pleased. We had not bought or sold a residence for 18 years, and Nancy very clearly explained the process and brought us back up to speed. She demonstrated a very strong knowledge of both the Highland Park and Evanston marketplaces, and this was of great assistance in both of our transactions. Nancy was also extremely responsive, which is very important considering the importance of the sale and purchase of a home and the amount of back and forth that takes place. We highly recommend Nancy to all prospective sellers and purchasers of homes."


"Nancy has been the best broker we've worked with. She follows up with everything and makes sure you are in the know of every potential buyer and or showing. She made the process of selling a house fun. Very professional and has a lot of resources to keep the process smooth. I highly advise you work with Nancy Karp for any area as you can tell she is a seasoned and a natural broker!"


"Nancy was wonderful. Working with her was like working with an old friend we'd known for years. She made the process smooth and exceeded our expectations in every respect. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a quality agent, and we will certainly call on her in the future, if we need the same."


"Our experience with Nancy was a pleasure from the beginning. We were living in California at the time and she was able to provide us with listings to review. When we moved here, we immediately looked for homes and were able to make an offer the next day. You can tell that Nancy does her homework by understanding the area and our needs. She also gave us a lot of information regarding the services that are offered in the area. When we closed, she was very thorough about what is needed by us and what steps are involved. We also received information about which companies to contact to turn on our utilities, which made our lives a lot easier. She is not only a professional agent, but a very personable one as well."


"Nancy is professional and responsive. She has integrity and takes pride in her work and it shows in the experiences you will have with her as a buyer or a seller."


"Nancy was a great . We got an offer in a few days and had the house closed on and sold in less than 2 months. Nancy had valuable information on contacts to help with downsizing and moving. She was professional, yet very personable and responsive to our needs."


"Nancy went over and above what I expected...she did a lot behind the scenes that I was amazed to see. The brochure she designed was fantastic..never saw that house look so good!!But what impressed me the most was Nancy's communication.. I had never sold a house before, and her experience not only guided us through the process, but saved us so much anxiety and potential aggavation.Nancy is helpful, ethical, and intelligent, all necessary attributes for a broker. I am v r u glad she was ours!!"


"Nancy is an experienced realtor with good understanding of the real estate market in the North burbs. She works hard to get deals through. She is committed to her clients and strongly recommend her for your property purchase."


"Choosing to work with Nancy Karp was a great decision. She is very professional, knowledgeable and supportive. We felt like she was a family member taking care of us! This transaction would not have happened without her skills as a realtor."


"Nancy Karp goes above and beyond to find exactly what you are looking for..If you have questions and need to call her, she will respond very quickly. She responds quickly to emails as well. Great person to work with."


"Our property sold so fast, our home showed beautifully on line due to excellent photos that were taken by my husband (he works for VHT). And our excellent location to the city and major highways. Using the tools of the MLSL on line and pricing the property "to sell" made the process easier with the internet.::"


"Nancy's expertise in marketing, made my house sell extremely fast! She made the whole process painless! I have already recommended her to a friend!"


"Nancy was great. Very knowledgeable. Responded quickly to our questions despite being very busy. Overall, made our home buying experience smooth and enjoyable."


"Nancy was fantastic. She was my realtor for both the purchase of my new condo and the sale of my old one. What I liked most about her was her sense of confidence and her good-natured personality. I noticed this immediately when she was the seller's realtor for another property. She gave me brochures and patiently explained "the rules of the game to me." When it came to the purchase of the condo I now reside in, I was happy with her negotiations with the other broker. When it came to the sale of my previous condo, I interviewed several other realtors before I chose Nancy. While the others were all perfectly competent, Nancy was the only one who didn't try to talk me down from my proposed asking price; in fact, she thought I could sell for higher. I knew that other condos in my complex were being undervalued in a rising market, and I wasn't going to take the first or second or third offer (which other sellers in my building had done, thus deflating the value of their property and the complex as a whole). Nancy was positive and willing to work with me. So when other sellers in my building were excited to get their home sold in three days, I waited two weeks and got the price I wanted and the terms I wanted."


"Nancy was a tremendous resource for a long and difficult search. She was extremely knowledgable about the northshore and brought expertise and creativity beyond just sending MLS listings.She has a very strong network of other people(legal, contractors, etc) so was ideal for someone like myself moving to the North Shore from out of state."


"I made a sound choice in choosing Nancy Karp to represent me in the sale of my property. She is smart, efficient, focused, sincere,trustworthy, honest and willing to go the extra mile in presentation and showings.Nancy presented a customized marketing/advertising plan; was familiar with the actual conditions of the market in my neighborhood, pricing the property competitively resulting in a satisfactory outcome.She responded in a timely manner to all phone calls/appointments and was forthcoming with pertinent information regarding prospective client's opinions and responses to the showings.Nancy's high level of competency and commitment to me and the sale of my home was above and beyond my expectations.I highly recommend her for a favorable experience and outcome"


"In our current economic condition it takes a special person to work in an environment where it takes so much effort and follow up to achieve positive results even when the return sometimes doesn't appear worth it. All too often you can get lost in the shuffle of the new rules and guidelines and all your work can appear to be for naught. Nancy Karp is one of those special people who was always available and had the drive and put forth the effort needed to complete the deal. No effort or communication is wasted or without merit. Sometimes you sense a lack of interest or ability in people but the real estate market right now is one of the most confusting and scary to people. A good broker recognizes that and constantly maintains a positive attitude and stays as current as possible. Seeds planted today will grow in due time."


"Nancy moved me through to this property with ease and great attentiveness to my interests and concerns. I was amazed at her responsiveness. I feel that it was her expertise and general "moxy" which got me the best results in record time. I would recommend her to anyone."


"Nancy was very helpful. She returned phone calls promptly and assisted me with getting into the condo to have measurements taken for new flooring and painting. I would highly recommend @properties."


"Nancy Karp is very professional, very responsive, and very easy to work with. She keeps you informed along the way, and she does whatever is required to get the sale done. We would highly recommend Nancy Karp to anyone needing a Realtor."


"I was extremely happy with the service Nancy provided. Her business acumen and knowledge of the real estate market enabled me to be one step ahead of the other buyers and their offers. As a first time home buyer I couldn't ask for a better agent."


"As people unfamiliar with the process of purchasing a home, Nancy was highly informative and patient. She was consistently responsive and helpful. It was reassuring to know that we had Nancy to help us throughout the process."


"My husband and I would like to heavily recommend Nancy Karp as a real estate agent. My husband and I are in the process of selling our second house and buying our third. When we first put our current house on the market, we listed with a different agent. Dissatisfied, we took our house off the market and started looking for another agent. We interviewed multiple agents and decided on Nancy. What a great decision!Nancy is our business partner and she approaches the selling of our house as if it was her own. She uses her expertise to advise us and to attract prospective buyers to our house. Her attention to detail is truly impressive. From our first discussion with Nancy, she was interested in the details behind our house, the improvements we made to it, the neighborhood… She reviewed with us and received our approval for all of the listing paperwork, including the MLS listing, photos, marketing brochures, postcards, and a take away detailing the improvements to our home. She did additional research to see if she could find out more about our unique home – it was built in 1923 and then later moved to its current location. On top of all that, she worked on personally contacting agents in our area to raise awareness of our house. The other aspect of working with Nancy that has really impressed us is her professionalism. She is down to business, to the point and honest on expectations and strategies. We have met many real estate agents that focus on their personalities, trying to sell us on “them”. Or the agent hasn’t really listened to us – their focus is on making the deal. Nancy is of course very personable, but focused on business and respectful of our time. I feel that I am being advised by experience and knowledge combined with a thorough understanding of what we want. She is not selling our house; she is taking care of our home.When making the biggest financial decision of your life – you want to work with someone you trust. I could not be happier with our decision to rely on Nancy."


"I practised as an attorney in South Africa and Nancy acted as my agent in securing a property for me (here). Her professionalism, knowledge and competence is excellent and she is extremely personable and pleasant to deal with.I unreservedly recommend her."


"Nancy Karp is an exceptional person and real estate agent and gives100 percent. I would highly recommend her. She has excellent social skills and should be a valuable asset to your organization."


"Nancy made the home-buying process easy for us. With a baby in tow, we wanted our home search to be efficient and hassle-free, and Nancy was very accommodating in making that happen. She listened to what we wanted, was knowledgeable about the areas we were considering, and helped us without pressuring us. She was easy to communicate with and responded promptly to our questions. Nancy was very pleasant to work with and always a true professional. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home."


"We don’t know each other. I’m a resident of Highland Park. I’ve bought and sold houses in HP…know many of the brokers. I will eventually sell and buy again (too underwater on my mortgage to make sense of a sale right now). So here’s why I’m writing…I received your recent market research mailer and read it cover to cover…no one else in the market does it….I just wanted you to know it was very effectively received…I’m not in the market now, but when I am you will get a call…I just wanted to randomly kudo you for marketing well done!!!!"


"My wife and I were first-time home buyers. From the time we first sat down with Nancy, we felt like she was someone we could trust. She was friendly, knowledgeable and pretty straight forward about the whole process. She provided us with plenty of information about her and her resources. After our initial interview, we talked for only a few minutes and decided Nancy would be the best realtor for us. Nancy didn't disappoint us either. She gave us the ability to select certain homes we were interested in seeing. Surprisingly, we fell in love with a home on our first tour of homes with Nancy. The home was perfect for us. She parlayed our communication and questions back and forth with the seller and the seller's realtor. And when we finally decided to make an offer, she helped us through that process quickly and efficiently.We were continually impressed with Nancy's dedication to her job that went far beyond being just another realtor. She maintains a website where she shares her tips on home buying. She also continues to do research on the housing market in the Chicago metro area.. We would definitely recommend her to others."


"We have nothing but great things to say about Nancy. She went above and beyond in order to enusre we had the best experience possible while looking for a new home. She really made our home buying experience a great one and we were able to buy a perfect home because of her. Go with Nancy 100%!"


"I can't thank you enough for making the house hunting process for my father so seamless and stress-free. You were there each step of the way with your expertise, from the initial search through the closing. We found you to be extremely knowledgeable and personable throughout and never felt pressured into any decision. You really were looking out for our best interests and certainly excel at what you do. Thanks again!"


"We are writing this letter in regards to the experience we had with Nancy Karp our AMAZING real estate agent. We have never felt more compelled to write a testimonial letter— for any reason — then we are for the service Nancy has provided us with. We cannot remember a time when we have ever had the pleasure to work with such a remarkable professional. We retained Nancy as our agent to help sell our home in Highland Park. Nancy was always courteous, patient, and perhaps most importantly, extremely sensitive to our specific situation and needs. The process of selling a house in this market has been a challenging and a bit stressful. Nancy was always a calming and reassuring force, taking time, day or evening, to make sure we had all the information and understood all the details. When an offer came in, Nancy spent considerable time with us explaining the offer and the options to make a counter-offer. Nancy continued her service after the house already sold and her official work was done! She became a bridge of communication between us and the buyers’ agent, answering questions and defusing some stressful moments. What a professional! Nancy is an incredible asset to have by your side. Not only does she represent the best in a real estate agent, but she also has redefined a new standard by which all agents should strive to achieve. We have never encountered any professional, in any industry that showed such professionalism, impossibly high work ethic, and the ability to meet our every need. Nancy was an absolute pleasure to work with.It is not possible to express the words to adequately convey our feelings, or give a high enough recommendation of Nancy to anyone. We certainly could not imagine going through any future real estate deal without her. Please feel free to share the content of this letter as you see fit, and we would be more than happy to provide additional reference for Nancy in any capacity. Thank you Nancy for an amazing job!Sincerely, Vered D."


"I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users."Stop! Go nowhere else if you are looking for a Real Estate Agent. Nancy will make your life easy. You could go to anyone for service...but Nancy really gets it. You're not just a number to her...you are a client and friend...and you get instant respect when hiring her. She is creative, timely and focused on results. She provided us with weekly updates without fail and continued to make recommendations along the way. We always felt that she was proactive and part of our team...rather than someone just out there for their own good. Her advice was dead on and she would back things up with just the right amount of information and number crunching. In the end, her integrity wins everyone over. I highly recommend her."Service Category: Real Estate Agent Top Qualities: Great Results, On Time, High Integrity"


"Nancy has a perfect blend of the key skills and attributes one would want in a realtor. She is knowledgeable, creative, resourceful, professional, well spoken, does her homework, prepares well, listens well, is honest and realistic, helpful, encouraging, works hard and totally commits herself to your effort. She was willing to do whatever it took to help us through the selling process. She was very easy to talk to, was extremely responsive in returning calls, email and answering questions. It was very comforting knowing she was on our "team" and was accessible and willing to do what she could at anytime. She told us things straight. She has a well rounded perspective of people, real estate and business dealings, giving her unique combination of skills to contribute to and support you selling or buying effort. We would work with her again without hesitation. It was a real pleasure working with her, especially in what tends to be an emotional and challenging experience."


"You have made our dreams a reality! After over 2 years of looking with other realtors, we got the house we wanted, in the neighborhood we wanted, and you fought for us to get it at the price we wanted, in less than 3 weeks of working with you! Your knowledge of the market and of the area is unparalleled and it would truly be a pleasure to work with you again. You really went above and beyond what any other realtor has done for us in the past and that speaks volumes to your high quality of character and your resolve to complete the job for your client! We really enjoyed getting to know you (and Joel loved meeting Frisco!) and we really appreciate all your help throughout the closing process, being first time home buyers it was wonderful having a realtor who was so patient and always available to answer our questions...We can't wait to have you over once the remodeling is done!!"

"Working with Nancy Karp as a Real Estate Agent was a rewarding and pleasant experience. In the process of selling our home my family and worked with two other firms and several other agents and none of them compared to the professionalism of Nancy Karp's work. Nancy is a business woman and a considerate person. In the current real estate environment we found both attributes to be important. Nancy's education and business experiences as a working mother allow her to understand the challenges faced by a family that is working with children in school. She works hard...Nancy is persistent. After she develops a marketing plan for your home she executes it and provides regular updates on progress."
