"Working with Phyllis was a great experience. She made the entire home-buying process simple and always offered candid, expert advice."

"We couldn’t have been more pleased working with Phyllis. She has a wealth of knowledge about the Chicago market place and she went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell."

"I've worked with Phyllis for almost ten years and cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She helped me purchase my first home and then sell it years later.

As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the process. Phyllis took me under her wing and made sure that all aspects were thoroughly explained to me. I always felt that she had my goals in mind, as we looked for my future home, making sure I was protected every step of the way. When I found the right fit, it felt like a victory for both of us. In the end, we had not only developed a lovely professional relationship, but a friendship as well.

Years later, when it was time to move on and sell my home, I knew who to call. She proposed an effective plan and arranged creative staging. The property sold and during the whole process, she was always available and responsive, often contributing thoughtful advice.

Phyllis exhibits a level of professionalism and excellence rarely encountered. She takes her time, expertly explaining things in a friendly and patient way, never rushing you with decision making. She's knowledgeable, hard working and incredibly helpful and candid during every single step of the home purchasing or selling process. I would recommend her services without any hesitation or doubt."

"Once again is has been great working with Phyllis. She is always on top of things and looking out for us throughout the process."

"We have used @properties and specifically, Phyllis Stellato, for all of our purchases and sales of real estate in Chicago. Phyllis is a class act in every sense of the term. She goes above and beyond to 1) communicate what your options are 2) provide valuable counsel when making important decisions and 3) execute the transaction. Her attention to detail is second to none and no stone is left unturned if you work with Phyllis. I would (and hopefully will) use her services again when I am purchasing real estate in Chicago and if you are smart--you'll use her too."

"Phyllis went to great lengths to ensure my condo unit was prepared to be sold - and was sold in a timely fashion. She has worked with my spouse and me for over five years and continues to provide exemplary service. I completely trust her, she will sell my spouse's condo unit once it's ready to go on the market, and I would strongly recommend her to others."

"Phyllis is amazing! I sold my condo in Chicago while I was living out-of-state, and she made it the best experience I could have asked for. She was knowledgeable, great at communicating, on top of all repairs/upgrades that needed to be done, and was patient with me whenever I needed a little more explanation. It was a relief knowing she was on top of things since I could not be there. I would highly recommend Phyllis!"

"Phyllis was fantastic--organized, detail-oriented, efficient, and highly knowledgable about everything related to the sale. It was our first experience selling a home, and I can't imagine a better person to have had by our side."

"Phyllis was GREAT throughout the entire process of selling our property and buying our new place! Phyllis goes above and beyond what is expected AND is extremely knowledgeable with the whole process. We would highly recommend Phyllis to anyone!!! ❤️"

"Phyllis was incredibly easy to work with. Her knowledge and phenominal communication made the selling of our home smoother than we could have ever imagined. I couldn't be happier we went with her."

"Phyllis understood after a few emails what it was we were really looking for in a new home. She nailed it on the first day out! Her professionalism and attention to detail made the home selling and buying experience much less stressful. I highly recommend Phyllis to anyone seeking a knowledgable partner in real estate."

"Phyllis is an excellent broker and I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Her knowledge of the market and potential gotchas for home buyers is second to none. She guided me through the whole process in a clear and straightforward manner, and effectively advocated for me in all steps of the process, from kickoff to closing. Phyllis also utilizes her network of trusted lenders, lawyers, and other professionals to streamline the buying process as much as possible. I would be very happy to work with Phyllis again in the future!"

"Phyllis presented as a very knowledgeable and professional agent from the start. She was up front and was really available at any time we emailed, texted or called. She maintained the ethical obligations of her trade. Phyllis was a good listener and while she always made her professional recommendation, she always made sure we knew the final decision was ours. Best of all, Phyllis sold our condo in less than a week. We know this is because of all the work she put in before hand with her analysis, pricing, staging recommendations, marketing, etc. We give Phyllis the highest recommendations."

"'Very Satified' doesn't seem to cut it! We loved working with Phyllis and honestly would not have felt as comfortable in anyone else's hands. She is stellar in all regards. We can't say enough about her experience and knowledge of the market, her professionalism, her frequency of communication... but also, she has become a trusted friend of ours over the past few years. She took the stress out of selling, period. I wish we could take her with us for our next purchase in Arizona!"

"Phyllis not only netted us top dollar for our unit, but successfully navigated us through a difficult closing process, providing valuable insight, recommendations and advice along the way. She was incredibly knowledgeable, always had the right answer to any issue, and maintained a relationship with a difficult buyer throughout.I felt confident in Phyllis's ability to handle any situation that arose, with prompt and correct action. She is accessible 100% of the time, provides thorough details on every item and constantly kept us informed throughout the entire process.We truly could not have gone through this process without her endless help. I have and will continue to recommend Phyllis to anyone we know that's buying or selling a home."

"Phyllis is dedicated to doing anything she can to help you sell your house and keep you informed. We so appreciate everything she has done for us. Thanks, Phyllis!"

"Phyllis is absolutely awesome! As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions, and she held my hand through the entire process. And when we made our offer, I felt confident that she would represent me superbly! She was in my corner the entire way!"

"Phyllis met with us, immediately assessed our needs, and found us the perfect property all within 6 days!"

"We had the pleasure of working with Phyllis both on the sale of our condo and purchase of our new house. Phyllis passion for the business and her clients was apparent from beginning to end. She is extremely organized, accommodating, responsive and enthusiastic. She spent so much time getting to know our needs and worked tirelessly until we found the perfect home. She also worked meticulously to coordinate both our sale and purchase, and the closing of both on the same day. Phyllis dedication to her clients does not end when the sale closes. She continues to be a resource for us to this day. Phyllis is a true professional and we would highly recommend her to any prospective buyers or sellers."

"This letter is long over due, we first meet Phyllis Stellato in September of 2007 when touring the sales center of R D659, within a month we made a decision to purchase a unit in the development. Due to our pleasant experience with Phyllis at R D we decided to list our existing condo with @properties through Phyllis.But first we almost went the route of "buy owner"...what were we thinking! The country was headed into a recession, the housing industry was tanking and "doom and gloom" was the daily headline in the newspapers for months. What did my partner and I know about selling one of our largest investments and assets. We entertained that crazy thought for about a week. We needed a leading real estate brokerage firm and a professional agent, @properties and Phyllis meet our criteria. Once we had the unit listed, we felt we had a true partner in reaching our goal of a sale before having to close on the new unit. Phyllis was in constant contact with us, sending along feed back from each showing, offering suggestions and outlining her plan for a successful sale. As the months pasted we were getting worried but Phyllis never gave up. We sold the unit in March and shortly after moved into our new unit at R D.Two weeks ago my daughter Nicole announced she was ready to purchase her first home. She asked about my experience working with Phyllis, I had only one her up. They had their first meeting last night and hit it off, the search starts next week. My daughter is very important to me and I know Phyllis will guide her to a successful purchase.Phyllis is a credit to you and your company."

"My wife and I used Phyllis when we had to leave Chicago for Seattle and had two properties to liquidate. She delivers first class realty service. Phyllis is highly professional. She provides all the information you need to make well-reasoned decisions about your property. She also sets you up with a realistic, pragmatic, and intelligent game plan. And for us, she got results - getting a bid on one of our properties before it even listed. We decided against selling our other property because Phyllis gave us a realistic perspective of the marketplace at that time - saving us tens of thousands of dollars."

"Whether buying or selling a home, the process can be very stressful and confusing. As first-time home sellers last year, my husband Dan and I were anticipating a lengthy and taxing selling process. However with Phyllis Stellato as our realtor, the stressfulness and confusion were put at ease. Phyllis handled our selling process in a very timely and professional manner. She was detail-oriented, proficient and thorough. She respected our needs and wishes and took these into consideration while handling our sale. She worked effortlessly to market our condo and bring in potential buyers and even went beyond what we expected to make this happen. As a result of Phyllis' tireless effort and work, we sold our condo in 5 days! Phyllis was wonderful to work with and we would highly recommend her to any of our friends and family members for their buying or selling needs."

"I recently bought my first place, and through some luck I found Phyllis. I went through 2 agents before I worked with Phyllis. She is not only consistent and reliable but she will find a home that is the best match for you. From looking for the perfect place, to the closing Phyllis was right there by my side. She can help you find the right lawyer, inspector, and even tell you the hippest places to go to around your new home. I know that I can still count on her, if I need any help with my place such as a plumber, electrician and so on. I definitely would recommend using Phyllis as your real estate agent!"

"The service and personal attention I received from Phyllis was exceptional and unexpected from a realtor! Her knowledge of the local market helped me find the perfect first home within my budget. After patiently going through listings and showings, Phyllis carefully explained the homebuying process and all of the details. I always felt like I was in good hands. She's also available whenever you need her by email and telephone to lend her advice and professional opinion. Whether you're buying or selling your home, I would highly recommend Phyllis Stellato to help you with your life-changing move. I could have not asked for a better realtor to guide me through this process."

"Phyllis was a great help to my wife and me in selling our condo and finding a great new home to move into. She priced and advertised our place well and had us under contract in a very short time, which in this market is pretty remarkable. Phyllis was also there for us when we needed her and helped keep us sane through this crazy process! I would highly recommend Phyllis to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Chicago."

"I could not have been happier working with any agent besides Phyllis. Her hard work, enthusiasm, dedication, and genuine nature were truly impressive and appreciated. I would strongly recommend working with Phyllis to anyone looking for an agent."

"I just wish Phyllis was moving to Arizona with me so I could use her for future deals!"

"Phyllis and Kelly were fantastic! We were relocating and needed to sell our home rather quickly. With Phyllis and Kelly's help, we accepted an offer on our home within two weeks of it being on the market. They also went above and beyond to help remedy complications with our home closing."

"Phyllis was an absolute pleasure to work with on our rental and a critical element in our move from a quiet suburb back to the city. She removed virtually ALL of the stress from an unknown situation. We felt extremely confident in her ability to handle all the big and little things that came up during the process of finding and moving into a new living space. She knows the market very well. I would ask her to help us again and again because any request for information we made, and it was often, she responded timely and with more than enough information to make important decisions. We were lucky indeed to have been referred to her!"

"Phyllis was fantastic when we were looking to rent our 1BR in River North last year. We met with Phyllis on Sunday, she had our place listed on Monday. had 9 appointments for viewings on Tuesday and a renter was selected on Wednesday. We just re-newed our renter for a 2nd year and could not be more pleased with the experience."
