"I have been in the Mortgage Industry for 28 years and worked with hundreds of Realtors. With certainty Vicki is the highest on my list of Real Estate Professionals that simply gets things done. She is relentless and is able to hold a client's hand from start to finish and give them peace of mind. Whether they're first time homebuyers or seasoned investors, she covers it all. Personally, I am amazed at her willingness to roll up her sleeves and help customers with all of the intricacies that come with the standard Real Estate/Mortgage Process. I am most grateful for her trust, energy, and responsibility that she insists on every deal."

"Vicki was professional, efficient, and available for any and all needs and concerns I had. I could not be happier with having her help me sell my home. I would highly recommend her to others. She sold my home for above what my original realtor had said I could sell my place for. She listened to my needs and followed through on everything she said she was going to do. Thank you Vicki and @properties for making my experience a good one!!"

"My wife and I first met Vicki in 2013 when we were looking for a modest 2 BR condo in Chicago. She was referred by our banker, and our experience was extremely positive. We didn't have to look at too many properties before we finalized on one and made an offer that was accepted. Unfortunately, we had to return to our home country due to visa issues and couldn't go through with the purchase. What struck me about Vicki was her whole attitude to the situation. Considering that she wasn't getting paid for the work she put in, she was more concerned about us having to leave our jobs and lives in the US.Therefore, it's no surprise that when we returned in 2014 and decided to buy 1.5 years later, she was our only choice for a realtor. Long story short, she showed us 22 properties in a span of 3 months. I travel outstation for work, and Vicki always accommodated us on weekends. Even after we were outbid on some offers (no fault of hers) and were beginning to feel discouraged, she kept our hopes up that we will get our dream place.And that's exactly what happened. I thank God that we lost out on the offers earlier, because the one we closed on is the best of the 22 we saw. She helped us negotiate a fair price and also introduced us to the lender who closed the loan in 20 days. I recommend Vicki highly. In fact, to my wife and I, she's a member of our family."

"The best broker I came across in the world. I work In USA, Europe and Asia and level of professionalism and knowledge is superb. Very enjoyable person and a great advisor. Stands up for your business like its hers."

"Moving to a new country can be a daunting and bewildering prospect. Especially in the depths of winter, when rental market pickings are thin on the ground. Vicki was the first person we met, in Chicago. She took us under her wing, showed us countless apartments and made us feel very welcome. We were choosy, and Vicki was patient and understanding.We found a wonderful place in Wicker Park that met all our requirements, and we are now settling in to our new home.Not only did we feel secure under Vickis expert guidance, but we also feel like we made a friend.

"My girlfriend (at the time) and I were referred to Vicki Jako by our mortgage officer. I had been a homeowner for some time and working with a real estate agent was not a new experience to me. But it was not until we met Vicki that I realized how important having the right real estate agent is. I had purchased my first place in the city of Chicago when I was 25 and my experience with my real estate agent at the time were that it was the necessary evil in the process of home searching. Vicki completely changed this viewpoint and boy am I glad our paths crossed. The first impression Vicki made on us was how personable and approachable she was. Our dealings quickly grew into a wonderful friendship, which made the grueling process of home searching very stress-free. Vicki stuck with us through 4 months of very active property search. At times we felt discouraged and outright skeptical as the real estate market in Chicago was going through a Renaissance and coupled with that nationwide interest rates had spiked the most in recent years. On a few occasions we even felt that our expectations and hopes were dashed and maybe we had missed the right opportunity. But there was Vicki, ready for us the following weekend with another batch of scheduled visits. To educate us better about the Chicago real estate market Vicki even introduced us to areas that we were not very familiar with, which helped us learn more about the City and ultimately made it much more clear where we wanted to live long-term. Vicki was not only instrumental in helping us find the right place, but was extremely helpful in the price negotiation effort. We consulted with her on all matters during negations and asked for her opinion every step of the way and acted as she recommended. In those moments I truly appreciated having someone so experienced and seasoned in the Chicago real estate market as Vicki. At the end of the day all ended well for my fiancé (I had proposed in the process) and I. We closed on a great two-bedroom unit overlooking the Magnificent Mile and the Water Tower historic district. As a sign of our gratitude for Vickis effort and friendship we invited Vicki and her husband to share with us our wedding night on December 14, 2014. Vicki, you can download a picture of you, Mile, Ina, and I from the wedding night. Feel free to use it as you wish. Bye"

"Dedicated, Hard-working, savvy, professional, persistent and utterly trustworthy.. just a few words to describe Mrs. Vicki Jako-Ostojic. I have yet to experience such a comfortable real estate transaction experience. She was able to find the exact home that fit my needs, and within budget. It took her only a short while to understand our personal taste and needs and she made the stressful, overbearing search process fun! We looked forward to spending the weekends with Vicki as we searched together for our perfect oasis. It felt as though she was buying the property with us! Thats how invested she was in making sure we found a cozy place we could call home.If your house hunting in Chicago, you're CRAZY not to do it with Vicki Jako-Ostojic."

"Vicki did a tremendous job to assist my family in purchasing a condo for our son. Her knowledge of the market enabled us to find a beautiful unit at a very competitive price. Her diligence in working with our attorney and the listing broker was instrumental in the successful closing. The listing broker was very uncooperative and not helpful at all. If it had not been for Vicki going above and beyond her normal responsibilities as a selling agent we never would have been able to close. She was always very professional."

"As a first time home buyer, I had no idea the process. My broker made it very easy for me to understand the process and I like to think I would be more knowledgeable in the future."
