"Sarah is knowledgeable about the Logan Square market. She made the process easy for us and our condo sold quickly. Everything was seamless and she worked around our schedule. I highly recommend working with Sarah."



"Sarah Maxwell is wonderful! I cannot express how helpful, kind, informative, accommodating, and patient she is. This was my first home purchase and Sarah consistently took the time to insure that I understood what and why everything was happening. She is honest, intelligent and supportive and an absolute delight to work with. I will recommend her at any opportunity that I can and, if I ever move again, she will be the first phone call that I make."



"I was so impressed by Sarah and would recommend her in a heartbeat! Sarah did a great job of bringing properties to my attention that she thought I would like given my style and budget before these properties officially came to market. This fact alone differentiates her from the majority of realtors out there. Another stand out point that comes to mind is that Sarah read my home's inspection report cover to cover. She went through the report and gave me a list of things we should ask the seller to fix, things I should do on my own, and other considerations. I can't begin to describe how helpful this was to me. She is a skilled negotiator and a fantastic communicator. Highly recommend her."



"Sarah is the best agent!!!!! She makes sure to listen to her clients and really find them what they need!"



"Sarah was fantastic to work with. She took care of everything making our cross country move into a new place effortless. Thank you Sarah!"



"Sarah came highly recommended from several of my friends who have worked with her and I now understand why. She is a spectacular broker that went above and beyond throughout the entire process. Her experience, wealth of knowledge and personality made everything go very smoothly, but more importantly made the entire process enjoyable. I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know and will contact her again for my next purchase or sale."



"Working with Sarah is the best. She is knowledgeable, diligent, irrepressibly positive and always available.

"Sarah effectively led us through a tough deal with inspection and appraisal issues and made it all work out with very little delay and to everyone's satisfaction. Really appreciated the extra effort."



"We had a previous broker that was not attentive or responsive. Sarah had a great strategy and was able to pinpoint cost efficient repairs that we could do to make the condo more interesting to buyers. She was great to work with and got us a really good price."



"Sarah walked us through every step of the process (even the painful ones) and helped us through a somewhat challenging sale that turned out exactly how we wanted! We got the price we desired, closed in a reasonable amount of time and are about to close on our new home in less than 48 hours. Two months ago I said it would take a miracle to make this all workout, but Sarah made it happen!"

"Sarah is phenomenal! We loved working with her. She's forthcoming with all kinds of great information, both formal and informal, and offers advice with a level of candor that's incredibly helpful and never pushy. She is unbelievably responsive and proactive, as well as supremely organized. We couldn't recommend anyone more highly."



"Great price, quick close, excellent all around."



"Sarah is extremely professional and responsive. Her preparation prior to putting the house on the market was comprehensive and her follow through with communication timely and thorough, guiding us through the entire process."



"My experience with Sarah Maxwell was phenomenal, to say the least!

As first-time homebuyers, the entire process seemed a bit overwhelming, but after meeting with Sarah, I immediately felt calm and excited to start! The process itself took about 6 months from start to finish and Sarah was kind and patient throughout. She knows the Chicago neighborhoods like the back of her hand so it was great having her expertise on our side. Sarah answered all of our questions promptly and gave us her opinion on listings, which helped us make an informed decision.

Once we found the condo of our dreams, Sarah walked us through the next steps and knew exactly what to do to ensure we would get it. We closed in less than a month – this is typically faster than normal, but closing wasn’t stressful at all. Everything went smooth, making the closing process fun, which is how it should be when you’re buying your home!

If you are looking for a realtor, look no further! I strongly recommend using Sarah Maxwell for all your real estate needs. I have not only found my realtor for life but also made a friend along the way. We are so lucky to have her and we couldn’t be happier in our new home!

"Sarah Maxwell, our knight in shining armor. She was basically a Game of Thrones hero (but didn't die, thank god). She was there to calm our anxiety while guiding us through the home buying process. She was an excellent partner. If we were a mob boss, she was the perfect consigliere. We cannot recommend Sarah enough... seriously, we are running out of friends and family! Sarah will be our forever agent while we continue to buy forever homes."



"We loved working with Sarah. She gave us an overview of the homebuying process at the beginning so we would know what to expect, and her experience with multi-unit buildings and rehabbing was extremely helpful as we were trying to decide what would work best for us. She was communicative and helpful throughout the whole process, even when we ran into unexpected roadblocks near the end due to a completely nonresponsive sellers' attorney. Sarah basically made the deal happen for us anyway, and we're delighted with our purchase!"



"Sarah and Joe were amazing! They were able to get us an offer fast (30 days) and helped make the entire process extremely easy and smooth!"



"Sarah was great to work with. Her help made the whole home-buying experience (which for us took just over a month) easy and as stress-free I would imagine it can be. Sarah gave practical and reliable advice not just for the process of buying the home, but the little fixes that we would need after the fact. She always made herself available and we knew that we could count on her for top-notch service."



"Sarah is great to work with! She's on top of every detail, and is in constant communication - even when on vacation. I can't imagine working with anyone else. We recommend Sarah to all of our friends and acquaintances looking to buy/sell."



"Sarah made it easy to find a tenant for my condo. I will use her again when this lease runs out."



"Sarah Maxwell was a joy to work with. She has a fantastic attitude, and spirit and it was a real pleasure to work with her. I was under a huge time crunch in selling my home and she made the entire process effortless. I am so appreciative of all that she did to sell my home so quickly. I have told everyone i know that is in the market either buying or selling real estate to work with Sarah."



"Sarah was very thorough and available to all questions about the sale of the building. Communicated very well with the tenants about showing the apartments and really listed the building for a "good quick sale"."



"Sarah understood the process very well and handled all the communications and negotiations in a very efficient manner that resulted in a positive result. I will definitely use her services again in the future."



"Sarah Maxwell was my broker and she went above and beyond in every single way one could imagine. She showed me a wide range of options over the span of a year and never applied undo pressure. She guided me through the process, got me in contact with legal aid and a mortgage broker, and everyone involved (minus the listing agent) was superb. I couldn't recommend Sarah any higher, she seemed incredibly knowledgeable and interested in finding me the right place at the right price. Thanks again Sarah"



"Sarah Maxwell was extremely responsive and attentive during the entire home purchase process. She understands the ever-changing real estate market as well as anyone in Chicago."



"Sarah is amazing! Her knowledge of the market, buying & selling, renovation and repairs, was invaluable to me. She was involved in every step of the buying process and always there to help answer any random questions I had and calm my fears if something wasn't working out the way I hoped. She was always professional and always prepared. She made this stressful process feel so easy. I couldn't have done this without her. I'm so thankful for all her hard work and help throughout the last few months. Thanks Sarah!!!"



"Sarah was great! Sarah helped us find the perfect condo rental on the first day of looking! Then she managed to help us rent our condos for more than what we thought we could get."



"We really felt like Sarah went above and beyond for us throughout the entire process! She was sending emails and offers at all hours of the day and night to try and get us the best deals. Going through this for the first time, we were comfortable going to her with any questions or concerns, no matter how stupid. The home inspector and attorney she recommended also did an amazing job! Overall it was a fun and not too stressful experience."



"Especially in these times, a seller needs a broker, and that has to be a broker he can trust. For me, that was Sarah. We worked as a team and we got a good result."



"Being new at this, I had a lot of questions and more than just a few insecurities about the process. Sarah was so incredibly patient with me and it made my buying experience an enjoyable one. I was impressed with her knowledge of the market, the good builders as opposed to those not so good, and the details of building standards. She is so knowledgeable and I relied on her heavily when making important decisions. She is very enthusiastic, loves her job, is very trustworthy, and is always available (by phone, e-mail, and in-person). Sarah is the consummate professional, smart and patient, always going the extra mile to give the best service possible to her clients. I will recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a realtor"



"Sarah rocks my socks off! If there is an agent "award show" she should win best communicator....I swear I never waited longer than 10 minutes for an email reply/ call back. N You guys would be fools to let this girl ever go....she is young, motivated ambitious and intelligent....total Superstar"



"Sarah was a pleasure to work with. Throughout every aspect of my Condo search she provided professional, prompt attention to the process. I would highly recommend her especially if you are searching for properties in the city of Chicago"



"As a first time buyer I began my search for a new home with little to no knowledge of the process. After the first meeting with Sarah she made me feel comfortable and confidant I would find the perfect place for me. Sarah was great in making appointments for viewings around my busy schedule and always made herself available if I had questions or concerns. The entire process from start to finish was extremely rewarding and I owe a lot of that to the time and effort Ms. Maxwell put into my search. N Sarah did an awesome job in helping me realize what kind of place I was looking for. I literally had no idea of what I wanted going into my search, but Sarah definitely helped me figure everything out. Sarah found the ideal place in a incredible location. Sarah Maxwell deserves a raise..."



"As a first time home buyer I knew very little about the process. Sarah Maxwell was extremely informative and patient. Sarah Maxwell was easily accessible whenever I had questions or concerns. I could not be happier with the place that we found. I feel it fits my lifestyle to a tee. I have and will continue to recommend Sarah Maxwell to all my friends and family."



"Working was a pleasure. As a first time buyer she gave me all of the tools needed in order to make an educated decision and provided objective input on my purchase decision. rnrnI am excited to pass her name along to all of my peers as I expect that she will give them the same
experience as I was given. rnrnHats off to Sarah from @Properties! N Don't fire her. She's a fantastic agent"



"Sarah worked hard to find the right buyer for our property. She delivered a high level of service leading to a smooth closing."



"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sarah. She was always professional and trustworthy and we got two offers on my condo in the first week on the market. She was very responsive and negotiated well to get the best deal possible. I have already referred her to a family member and will continue to pass on her name."



"Sarah provided outstanding service in the purchase of my new home and the sale of my old residence. The whole experience was seamless and stress-free. Sarah, brought tremendous knowledge about the local markets and respective buildings in which I was interested. She provided good direction throughout. She was very professional and proactive through the whole experience. I will definitely recommend Sarah to my friends who are looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Sarah!"



"Sarah was incredibly professional throughout our entire home-buying process. She has an extensive knowledge of the markets in which she deals, but was able to make it easily understandable for us first-time homebuyers. I was grateful for all the guidance she provided, both with neighborhood information and the home-buying process itself. I gladly recommend Sarah to anyone looking to buy a home with as little stress as possible. We love our new home!"



"Sarah Maxwell is an awesome agent! Although she is a friend, we chose to work with Sarah because of her extensive knowledge on Chicago real estate. We knew we would be working with someone who truly understands living and owning a home in the city. rnAs first-time home buyers, we were pretty clueless about the entire process (loan approval, what?). But after our initial meeting with Sarah when she explained the home-buying process to us--from getting that initial loan approval through the closing--we felt totally relieved and walked away with an understanding of the process, great referrals, and a ton of helpful information. We recommend Sarah Maxwell to anyone who is interested in purchasing a home in Chicago. Purchasing a home should be a fun and enjoyable process, and that is exactly what our experience was like working with Sarah."



"Sarah was knowledgeable, direct and honest. There was no question she couldn't answer and nothing stood in her way to help me reach my real estate goals. I will recommentd her to evryone I know who may benefit from her services."



"Sarah did her homework to understand our neighborhood and she developed a very smart and competitive pricing strategy for us. Following her advice, we ended up getting 4 offers over one week-end and we sold the house over asking price. All this in a terrible housing market. And she was fun to hang-out with."



"Sarah was great to work with. She really knew the area where I was looking and was able to show me many homes that fit my criteria. Sarah was always very responsive to all my communications and did a wonderful job helping me through the process as a first time home buyer. I would recommend her to friends in the future!"



"Sarah is very knowledgeable about her "product" and her deals and follows through on every detail until the offer is accepted and the deal is completed. She is a real asset to a buyer like me."



"Sarah was extremely professional and detail-oriented, keeping us well informed at all phases of buying our new home. I would highly recommend her to friends and family!"



"Sarah Maxwell did an amazing job helping me sell my condo. She did a great job marketing the property and lined up potential buyers very quickly. I was selling my condo from out of state and she did a great job communicating with me through the entire process and worked with my tenants to ensure they were not impacted by showings and inspections. I highly recommend Sarah as a realtor and could not be more satisfied with her services."



"Sarah helped make the home buying process go smoothly and kept me informed every step of the way. She knew the neighborhood well, was able to answer any questions I had, and give me helpful tips. I would recommend Sarah to others."
