"I have been blown away by the professionalism and attentiveness of Vasi. She was truly amazing to work with. I felt like we were her only clients (although I know this is not true) and we had 100% of her attention at all times, day or night. Her communication and dedication is outstanding and immensely helped moved the process along swiftly. This has been one of the best experiences of my life and I owe it all to Vasi. We would consider ourselves very fortunate to work with her again in the future and recommend her to any family and friends in need. Thank you for everything!"

"Nicole’s attention to detail and responsiveness was above and beyond. Looking forward to the next deal with her!"

"Anyone who has searched for a new apartment to lease/buy in Chicago knows the stress that finding a new dwelling can put on someone. This coupled with a busy work schedule, and attempting to have a social life- things can start to pile up. That’s where Nicole comes in- she completely removed the stress of searching for apartments. My roommate and I had specific goals in a new apartment, we wanted something new, with AC, and in-unit W/D, close to public transportation, and to top it all off we needed something dog-friendly. Nicole was on top of sending us up to date listings the moment something that would match our goals became available. It’s apparent she has a passion and true talent for real estate. I would recommend Nicole to anyone who is tired of playing the cat and mouse game of apartment hunting in the Chicago area!"



"Nicole helped me find an apartment that had all of the amenities that I wanted. She made me feel very comfortable saying "no" and it never seemed to burden her. She was able to accommodate my very hectic schedule. You can tell she is very passionate about her craft and really knows the industry. We ended up finding the perfect place for me and I couldn't be any more pleased. I highly recommend Nicole to all of my friends and family."



"Nicole did great with providing a good amount of selections of apts to choose from. She was very accommodating with timing of meeting and making sure they were after another. We love the apt and without her, we wouldn't be living here. I would definitely recommend her."



"I was in a time crunch when I came to Nicole for help to find an affordable (but still new) 1 bedroom apt in the Lakeview area.

Nicole was very patient with me and talked me through my emotions when I wanted to jump into a lease because the stress of the search/time crunch was getting to me.
I'm so glad I listened to her because she helped me find exactly what I was looking for in the area I requested- AND I came in under budget.

I would work with Nicole again in a heartbeat."



"Vasi helped us sell our childhood home. She was there to answer every question and helped us with every detail. Vasi checked in regularly and helped us understand the details of the process. If you have Vasi on your side you'll have a great experience!"



"Nicole was so great while helping me find my current apartment. Rather than spend hours myself looking for an apartment, Nicole did the work for me and emailed me several apartments to view. She went above and beyond when showing me units and was always able to work with my schedule. She also made communication between me and my current landlord extremely easy during the lease signing process. I am so happy in my new place and I have Nicole to thank! I couldn't recommend her more."



"We were extremely pleased with Vicky! Her attention to detail in finding the perfect tenant for our property was outstanding!"



"What I enjoyed most about Vasi, besides her great personality, is that she is honest about a house. If she saw something with wrong with the house, she was the first one to say it. She didn't tell us how great a house was when it wasn't. I felt no pressure to buy any of the houses we'd looked at. She would always say, "We'll find the right house for you."



"Nicole was a huuuge help as I was moving to Chicago from Cincinnati. That’s a big change in my life and she made it seem easier. Was fully prepared and always sent me new listings to choose from. I am now super happy with my apartment and I wouldn’t have found it without her help!"



"Vasi provided us perspective and she was level headed during this very stressful period. I would recommend Vasi to both my colleagues and friends who are in the market for a new home."



"Nicole was extremely honest. She is extremely responsive, she was such a pleasant person to deal with in real estate. We never felt like she was hyping a home up just to get the sale. Would love to work with her again.. would recommend to others"



"Working with Ephie was great! Whenever we had questions she would get back to us in a timely manner. She listened to our concerns and valued our needs. I would strongly recommend working with her."



"Vicky was extremely accommodating and always available. She helped me decide on selecting a great property that fulfilled all my needs. She is an exceptional broker and will use her again for my next property."



"Vasi was very thorough, always on top of things, definitely on "my side" and kept me sane during our incredibly stressful buying process."



"Anyone who has searched for a new apartment to lease/buy in Chicago knows the stress that finding a new dwelling can put on someone. This coupled with a busy work schedule, and attempting to have a social life- things can start to pile up. Thats where Nicole comes in- she was able to help by completely removing the stress of searching for apartments. My roommate and I had pretty specific goals in a new apartment, we wanted something new, with AC, and in-unit W/D, close to public transportation, and on top of all of that dog-friendly.Nicole was on top of sending us up to date listings the moment something that would match our goals became available. Its apparent she has a passion and true talent for real estate. I would recommend Nicole to anyone who is tired of playing the cat and mouse game of apartment hunting in the Chicago area!"



"Ephie was excellent through our entire process with selling our house! We highly recommend her to anyone with selling or buying a house. Always available when needed and was able to answer all our questions. Highly recommended!"



"Vasi Koufis went out of her way to show us over 10 properties in a day and a half that met as much of our stringent criteria as possible. She helped us find the perfect house to rent and was with us every step of the way through the rental application process and was in very frequent communication. We could not have asked for more. When we decide to buy in the Chicago area, we will be contacting Vasi!"



"Vasi is a true Godsend! She was on vacation out of the country and still responded to emails and helped me find my home. She worked with the timing I said I would like to be in a home, she negotiated the terms to a T of what I wanted to pay. Vasi even suggested my inspector, attorney, and lender and I couldn't have had a better team of people working on my families behalf. We truly can't thank Vasi enough for going above and beyond her call of duty to assist us with finding a home."



"After living with a couple roommates, I had decided to move out on my own. I was a little picky with my preferences (needed to be pet friendly, no studios, central AC, specific areas, etc) so I didn't really know what my options would be. Nicole sent me listings for apartments right as they became available so I never missed out on an opportunity. She showed me around at times that were convenient to my schedule (VERY inflexible schedule, unfortunately for me) and we were able to find the perfect apartment. If given the opportunity, I would absolutely work with Nicole again and would recommend to all of my friends and colleagues."



"Our broker was amazing; she was very helpful, very understanding, and very thoughtful. As customers, we were very demanding, picky and a little difficult. Ephie was always patient, with a smile, and always answering our questions and calls in a quick timely manner. We let her know that we wanted her opinions and suggestions. She was very open to help us and suggest ideas, without inputting her own bias and opinions. I loved her ideas, and she has a vision for decorating and envisioning, if needed. She did a great job on trying to read us and what we were really looking for. She was very receptive to what we needed and liked, and helping us find a median in my husband's and my wants, since what we wanted was really different. She is great and will definitely tell others to use HER!!"



"I have bought and sold several houses and Vasi is by far the best realtor I have ever had! She gave me sound advice, always kept me informed and helped me focus on my list of needs versus wants. She was a huge advocate for me during the negotiation process and never dropped the ball - even when she had a death in her family! Vasi is great and I will definitely be referring her to other people."


"I want to start this review by thanking Nicole Kourtis for her exceptional work. Nicole truly exceeding all of my expectations in a realtor.I've noticed several reviews mentioning Nicoles ability to guide and assist even the pickiest of clients. These declarations could not be more affirmative. I started my apartment search in Chicago with a very meticulous outline of what I was looking for. I sent this criteria to several real estate agents in the area. In the very few responses I received I was told that my expectations and price point were not possible. Feeling discouraged I reached out to a few more and luckily one of them was Nicole. Nicole jumped right into action. She promptly sent me several incredible options using my "impossible" guidelines. She gave excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and extensive knowledge on each and every property suggested. My search now went from "impossible to find" to impossible to choose.In the days following our initial introduction I had a few unexpected changes in my life that sizeabley altered my already detailed search criteria. Instinctively I was discouraged due to the prior experiences I had encountered and assumed I might have just gotten lucky with a realtor that had what I needed before on hand at the time. This assumption could not have been more wrong. Nicole not only graciously welcomed the complete reconstruction of my criteria, she down right found the most impeccable home for my fiance and I to start this new chapter in our lives.In the weeks we have spent here I cant imagine living anywhere else in our foreseeable future, though without hesitation when that time arrises there is no one I would even think to call than Nicole Kourtis. Thanks again Nicole!!!Alissa C. Kotrba"
