Testimonials

Overall 5 star rating out of 36 reviews



"This is our third transaction using Ms. Carn's services. We are very satisfied with her work! As soon as the condo was listed, Ms. Carn put together an absolutely beautiful marketing brochure and conducted three weekend open houses. This made for a very quick sale with multiple offers. After agreeing to an offer, the sale became more difficult because the condo board was completely incompetent and slow in getting the necessary documents to the buyer. Despite this, Ms. Carns worked diligently with the board to facilitate the sale. I am happy to report that the sale closed on-time! We will absolutely use Ms. Carns in the future."



"Yvonne has helped us through three real estate transactions in one very stressful year. We could not have done it without her thoughtful approach and her great advice. We highly recommend Yvonne Carns."



"The Best"



"We have bought and sold property with Yvonne Carns since 2004. She is hardworking and diligent. Every visiting buyer is shown your property by her and she is an effective and intelligent salesperson. AA++"



"Yvonne patiently and firmly got us through the process of selling our condo and finding a home that exceeded our expectations. She was always available, always direct and worked around the clock to complete both deals. She is the person you want in your corner when you're taking on the adventure that is moving. She was great to work with and I highly recommend her."



"Yvonne helped us sell our home and buy a condo last year. Throughout the process she was very helpful and informative. She told us we could list our home at a much higher price than we thought we could get, and it took her only seven weeks to find us buyers who were willing to pay only $5,000 less than full price. Needless to say we were thrilled!

Then we went to work trying to find a new home. Yvonne only showed us homes that fit our very specific criteria (close to the lake, w central air and garage parking) and she helped us negotiate $36,000 off the asking price of our dream home.

So we would highly recommend Yvonne Carns to anyone who is buying or selling real estate. She was very professional, helpful and also a fun person to work with. She shares a lot of interesting stories about real estate.
We found her a joy to work with."



"Yvonne in a word is amazing. Not often have I run across a professional in any industry with as much integrity and thoughtfulness in dealing with clients. She helped guide me though the process of buying and kept my emotions in check. I always felt she was looking out for my best interest and listened to what my needs were. I have since referred her to friends and I am happy to say she was able to help them close on three properties!"



"I had a very negative experience with my previous real estate agent and started to 'shop around' for a new one. Then I met Yvonne. From the moment she walked in my home that I was trying to sell, I felt optimistic. Originally, my home was on the market for 6 months with hardly any lookers. Once Yvonne started, she re-did the professional photos and staging of my home. We had increased traffic and much more interest! I also had her sell my condo at the same time. Both properties sold within 6 weeks at the prices I was happy with. She showed up to EVERY showing. She brought beautiful flowers for my front yard and back deck to help 'pretty' it up! All while I was in the midst of selling both properties, I had Yvonne help me look for a new home. I can't tell you how much fun it was to have her involved. She was very honest in pointing out the positives & negatives and was truly a great negotiator in my offer. Anytime I had a question about ANYTHING, Yvonne responded within a timely fashion. I felt as though I was a priority for her (even though I knew she was busy).
I am very greatful to have had Yvonne help me. I highly recommend anyone to work with her!!"



"Yvonne has a great knowledge of the neighborhood. I have purchased a few properties with her assistance over the years and I have been very satisfied with her service and professional advise."



"Yvonne knew how to best prepare our house for sale while staying within our budget and means. She was very skillful in negotiating offers so that we always received offers that were significantly over the list price and above our expectations. She helped us deal with many little bumps for a successful sale. I also like that she does not ever represent both buyer and seller as was the case with an agent whom we had to drop because he was neglecting our interests. I strongly recommend her to everyone."



"Yvonne has helped us with three transactions, twice as purchasers and once as sellers. She was amazing to work with, always thinking about what needed to be done next, keeping ahead of problems, looking out for our interests. We learned a lot from her years of experience and we valued her advice. But at the end of the day, we made the decisions, based on the information we had and our priorities. On top of it all, Yvonne is a nice person to spend time with, and she is a very creative thinker."



"Goodbye RP hello HP.

Thanks to our wonderful agent Yvonne Carns w/ @properties. She said I will sell your place just give me some time and she delivered on that promise. She was present at every showing! She was patient and willing to work with us.
If you are selling in RP or anywhere else in the Chicago area Yvonne is your girl. She is not someone we knew or someone that came recommended. We simply searched area realtors and interviewed 3 of them. We chose her based on knowledge of the area, having properties in RP, a believer, a can do and will do attitude, someone who is present at every showing, and most of all a great salesperson.
What more could you ask for?
We'd use her all over again."



"My sisters and I had a very positive experience working with Yvonne when it came time to sell the house we grew up in. I liked the fact that she was always present when the house was shown. She also gave us what turned out to be very good tips on what we could do to make the home more pleasing to prospective buyers. The entire process went smoothly and we are grateful for her expertise. I would highly recommend Yvonne if you're looking to buy or sell."



"Yvonne is especially knowledgable of the Rogers Park area. She made the process of securing this condo a very good one! With her help, I was able to visit a listing the day it was posted, and it soon after became my new home. Highly recommended!"


"For anyone seeking a home in Rogers Park, we cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough. My partner and I could not have been easy clients—we had some significant doubts and anxieties about leaving our current home of 15 years (also in the neighborhood) and making the leap to a considerably bigger place. Yvonne showed endless patience with us as we hemmed and hawed over a period of about 6 months of looking at properties. Throughout our search, we appreciated Yvonne’s deep knowledge of every block in the neighborhood as well as her considerable candor and frankness in evaluating the merits of each property we saw. We always felt like Yvonne valued our long-term satisfaction and happiness over making a sale and that she cared for our well-being like a friend or family member would. As it turned out, the offer/closing process itself was very complicated and often frustrating due to some issues on the sellers’ end (as well as some international travel we had previously planned that unfortunately coincided with our closing date). Yvonne was a tireless advocate for us throughout this time and went above and beyond to act in our stead when we couldn’t be there in person. She communicated and coordinated frequently and well with our lenders and attorney to make sure that the sale proceeded as smoothly as possible, even when my partner and I feared that it might fall through due to the sellers’ issues. We actually came home from our overseas travel straight to our beautiful new home, closed on while we were away! We can’t imagine having to go through this process without having Yvonne by our side and at our backs. We hope to live the rest of our lives in our new home, but if we do happen to ever buy or sell property again, there’s no question that we’ll be working with Yvonne then too."


"Yvonne is the consummate professional. She helped me sell an entry level condo in Rogers Park that had been trashed by a series of bad tenants. She put me in touch with local trades that were able to accommodate our compressed timeline and the results were amazing. We restored the unit to it's former glory and sold for $10k over list. Could not be happier with Yvonne!"



"Yvonne has helped us through three real estate transactions in one very stressful year. We could not have done it without her thoughtful approach and her great advice. We highly recommend Yvonne Carns."





"Yvonne was a terrific advisor to our real estate transaction. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I highly recommend her to guide and advise you through the sale or purchase of your home."



"Yvonne Carns gets the job done. She is fun to work with, yet no-nonsense. She helped us through the most difficult transition of of married life, and we can't say enough about her compassion and professionalism. She gave us good advice every step of the way."


"Yvonne is the best! I trust her 100% to take care of my needs!"


"Yvonne is a true professional. This was our third transaction together and won't be our last!

Her knowledge, diligence and follow-through is just outstanding."


"A real professional who knows her business, listens carefully, and finds creative answers to the concerns we raised. Buying a home is stressful, but Yvonne made the whole process a pleasurable experience!"


"Ms. Carns is wonderful. She was an absolute joy to work with when selling my condo in Rogers Park. I definitely recommend Ms. Carns if you're looking for a realtor."


"Yvonne has been great to work with from the start. We initially had contacted her 6 months before our property was listed and she told us to wait, that the timing wasn't quite right and that later she knew she would be able to market it much better. Needless to say, we listened to her and she sold out place within 5 days at very close to our listed price. No reductions, no boloney; just straight up honest feedback from her regarding what we needs to do and we let her handle all of the negotiations. I would totally recommend her to anyone I know. She is great to work with and responds right away to calls and emails."


"Yvonne was professional and very responsive to all of our questions. She was proactive and we were happy to get an offer after one month. We interviewed three realtors and she was the most honest and straighforward agent out of the three. We would recommend her."

"I would like to take a moment and comment on our real estate agent Yvonne Carns. Besides being a great friend and neighbor she is an absolutely incredible real estate professional. Her knowledge of all aspects of selling our home is unsurpassed. She is very attentive to the smallest of details and went above and beyond to present our home to prospective buyers.She was always available to answer any questions we had and responded quickly to any unforeseen circumstances during the entire process.

I hope you at @ properties are aware of the incredible asset she is to your company and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their properties!"
