"A local friend recommended Agnes to my husband and I when we were looking for a realtor. I was told she is the number one realtor in Brookfield and now we know why. We cannot recommend her enough. Agnes and her team did a great job on advising us on the changes we needed to make (& then helped execute them for us!), completed a full market analysis of our home and comparable homes in the area and were very responsive during the whole process.
Should you decide to sell or purchase a home in the greater Brookfield Area, Agnes should be your choice. There are always ups and downs when trying to sell a home and it can be a very stressful experience. Agnes was always the voice of calm and reason during the whole sale process. Very highly recommended!"
"Agnes recently helped my wife and I sell our home in Brookfield il
I would recommend Agnes to all of my friends and family. Agnes is a very honest and attentive person and is very skilled in every facet of her job.
thank you Agnes"
"I would highly recommend Agnes ,she took the time to answer all my questions and concerns when it came to selling my moms house.which had a contract on it in less then a week! And we closed a few weeks latter! !thanks Agnes"
"You can't go wrong choosing Agnes Halmon as your realtor! She is extremely attentive and customer-focused. We were very picky buyers with a very specific neighborhood and house-size requirement. With her guidance, we were able to purchase the exact house we wanted. She understands the market and is a pleasure to work with. She made the home buying process easy for us. Agnes is a top notch agent and I would highly recommend her to anyone."
"In 2016 I sold my home in Chicago and wanted to move outside the city limits. Agnes assisted me with finding the perfect home for me. She worked very hard to insure I found the home that would make me happy for years to come. She is the best."
"Agnes is, simply put, the best agent I've ever worked with. She gave me terrific input on how to prepare my home for sale, priced it perfectly for the market, and marketed it very well. I had competing offers after the first open house, and the house was under contract after ten days. She shepherded the sale attentively through the closing, assisting with the village inspection process and any subsequent negotiations with the buyers. I and the buyer were both very happy. I've recommended Agnes to all of my family members and friends who have needed to sell or buy a home, and will continue to do so."
"Agnes was a pleasure to work with as she helped us through finding and purchasing our first home. We worked with Agnes for 8 months while she enthusiastically showed us homes and helped us determine what things were important to us in a house. When we encountered a major hiccup with our first offer, she went above and beyond her role as a real estate agent to help us get the unfortunate situation cleared up so we could continue our house search. Agnes was easy to reach via email, text, or phone calls to answer our many questions throughout the home search and purchasing process. Her enthusiasm for real estate is apparent through her desire to help all her clients find the right house. We never felt pressured or rushed to make a decision. Agnes is a realtor with a great personality, who is easy to get along with, organized, profession and extremely knowledgeable. We really enjoyed working with Agnes and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property."
"To say the sale of my unconventional home was challenging would be a definite understatement. Agnes came highly recommended by several close friends and I am so glad Agnes signed on as our selling agent. She came with recommendations for house prep, referrals for contractors, years of sales expertise and an amazingly cheery disposition that got us through even the toughest days during the sales experience. Agnes definitely goes above and beyond to get the job done!
I will not hesitate to recommend Agnes to anyone buying or selling a home.
"If you are looking for an amazing real estate agent to help you purchase a home, Agnes is the way to go. She is very educated in the field and helps make the buying process very simple for you. When purchasing a home it is not a simple task, but Agnes will handle all of your questions, concerns, and stresses immediately and will make sure you feel comfortable. There is no better option than Agnes!"
"Agnes was responsible for selling our house in Brookfield as well as our new purchase in Willowbrook. She has so much attention to detail. When she staged our house, it looked so great, I almost didn't recognize it. If we should need real estate services in the future, we would positively contact her. I would recommend Agnes to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"Agnes was there every step of the way! Whether it be knowledge of the entire process, communication with us, and communication from the sellers, we could not have asked for more. You're in great hands with Agnes - highly recommended!"
"Agnes is a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgable about the Hollywood area of Brookfield and also understands broader market trends. I had multiple offers within 24 hours of listing. I wouldn't hesitate to use Agnes again!"
"Agnes was the perfect agent for us. She spent an entire day with us in and out of numerous properties providing relevant information on each while not imposing her opinion on us. She guided us in our decision making but let us ultimately purchase our perfect home. She was there with us through the offer, the inspection and then the closing, Her expertise made the process flow painlessly. I would highly recommend Agnes to friends and family who will be buying or selling in the future. So happy that she came highly recommended to us."
"Agnes is a fantastic real estate agent. She helped our family with a sale and a purchase over the summer that was incredibly complicated because several details of the purchase were dependent upon contingencies of the sale and vice versa. At several points during the process, issues arose that could have forfeited both transactions, and Agnes went above and beyond to meet with people, make phone calls, and provide added documentation to make sure that everything progressed smoothly. I honestly believe that were it not for her, we might not be living in our new home. I highly recommend her."
"Agnes sold my home the day it went on the market and handled all of our issues instead of, and often despite other parties involved. She was a tremendous help and I would recommend her to anyone."
"Agnes was very helpful in the selling of our home. We sold it in 1 day! She makes really nice flyers and presents the house well with the photographer she works with. She was very prompt with returning our calls and was very knowledgeable with every aspect of selling our home. Would highly recommend!"
"Agnes has a deep local knowledge of our area and very strong ethics. She was professional, responsive and has a knack for marketing and presentation. Calm, kind and intuitive, Agnes helped us sell our home to exactly the right couple for a fair price!"
"Agnes was wonderful. Caring, knowledgeable, fast-acting. Our house was sold in a week! She also helped us find a new home. We saw so many houses together, but she never pushed or pressured or got tired of taking us around. I highly recommend Agnes for all your realtor needs!"
"Agnes Halmon is an incredible real estate agent. In my experience, she has demonstrated a masterful understanding of the housing market at large, but more specifically in the area where my home was. Despite being about 10 miles away from her own area of Brookfield, she clearly understood the market in my own area. She was quick with producing comparable properties to my own and she selected ones that were ACTUALLY comparable to my own. She provided wonderful advice on how to prepare my property for sale and I really believe it helped to increase the sale value of my home. She doesn't seem to be a person who will just tell you what you want to hear to get your business. If you want someone who truly understands the market and will tell you the truth about the value of your property and what you can expect to get for it, then she's your real estate agent. I haven't yet worked with Agnes on buying a home, but the next time I am in the market for another property, there is only one real estate agent I plan on using...and that would be Agnes Halmon."
"We worked with Agnes Halmon from this office. This was our first home purchase compounded with the stresses of a growing family. She was very professional, thorough and was able to provide suggestions and input into property searches based on experience and what we were looking for. She was compassionate and understanding of the fears and concerns we had as home buyers. We stopped and started home searches several times and changed our search criteria, just as many times. She was very patient with us and we are very pleased with our purchase."
"Agnes is a true professional. When it was time for me to find a new home, a family member recommended her. I was so impressed that I have now referred her to family and friends in the area. She listened to my needs, showed me appropriate properties, was patient and understanding about what a big purchase a home is and showed me a lot of options when it came to properties. The buying process couldn't have been easier and that was all thanks to Agnes. I have done business in the past with other realtors, but not anymore! If I ever needed to sell or purchase a home, I wouldn't hesitate to work with Agnes again. You won't be disappointed!"
"I'm a first time home buyer and going into the process I didn't know much. Agnes walked my girlfriend and I through the whole process step by step, she told us what to watch out for and worked with our price range. I would go on Zillow a lot and find new houses to look at and she always found time to walk us through and was always very available with her time. She made every very easy for us and as a result I know own my first home and could not be happier with it. I have already and will continue to recommend Agnes to anyone I know looking to own a home."
"Based on comps only my house would have sold for a lower price. Agnes and I both agreed that we had to sell the houses great location to get what I wanted. She put it up for the price I wanted and it sold in less than a month. I promise you if you choose her as your broker , you won't be sorry. She does way more than the average broker."
"Agnes was our realtor for selling our home earlier this year. She is a professional, she knows the market, can accurately access and recommend a listing price. She helped with negotiations between us and the buyers realtor. The buyers attorney was overly aggressive, without her help, we would have been cancelled the contract.
She is responds quickly when contacted and if she is unavailable for some reasons, she sends a text to let you know. She helped with ideas for staging and went above and beyond, not only with suggestions but with bringing furniture, even to the point of bringing her own patio furniture!!!
We were told how emotional and exhausting selling a home is.....She is understanding and compassionate. She never gets angry and helped calm me down when I was in a high state of anxiety."
"Agnes was very easy to work with and she worked very hard to assure the sale of my mother's house. She staged the house beautifully and made sure that the pictures of the house and the listing were attractive and desirable to buyers. She kept excellent communication with all of my siblings, the trustee of the house, and me. I could not be more happy with the experience."
"I am a retired IL real estate agent now living in CA. I chose Agnes based on her location and her reviews. I could have not been happier with my choice!
We got multiple offers on our property. With Agnes's expertise we were able to accept an offer that far exceeded our expectations.
We had a smooth closing within a month of listing with Agnes.
I cannot praise her ability as a real estate agent enough!"
"Could not ask for a better realtor! Agnes not only sold our house fast, she also helped us find our dream forever home! She is very patient and understanding. We are very picky so we must of gone through over 60 houses. She goes above and beyond for her clients."
"If you need a realtor, Agnes is the one! We recently decided to retire and move out of state. Agnes was extremely helpful explaining what we should do in our house to get top dollar whether it was something simple like painting or staging a room to make it look more appealing. She was also very good at keeping me calm during the very emotional process. She walked us through everything and we would very highly recommend her to anyone. She also found us a realtor to help us find our new place out of state. Thanks again Agnes!"
"I called Agnes in December to explore the possibility of moving to Riverside/Brookfield. I didn't have a idea of what I really wanted or needed. Admittedly I didn't give Agnes much to go on. And with some rather weak details Agnes and I began to work together. We visited dozens of homes in the Riverside/Brookfield area. Agnes took time to understand what was important for my family. She was always a call or email away. She had a ton of enthusiasm to be a part of this process. In the end we found exactly what we were looking for in a home. Exactly the area we wanted to be. Thank you Agnes for your time and energy."
"She is delightful! She wants what YOU want. I was in the market for an apartment building, but with a great "deal". She showed me MANY different properties - never complaining when I proposed a low offer. As each offer was rejected, she stuck with me until we came across a property with many complicating factors. She made MULTIPLE daily calls to the sellers and my attorney, diligently being certain to dot all i's and cross all t's. In the end, I got exactly what I wanted, a great property at a great price. As you go through the experience, it is wonderful to have someone so cheerful and upbeat, who is willing to work her tail off!"
"Agnes is a very professional real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable of the market in my area and made the entire process of selling my home seamless. She worked closely with the appraiser ensuring that I received top dollar for my home. I would work with her again!"
"Agnes is a phenomenal realtor. She recently help me buy a condo in Riverside. This was my first time buying a home, and Agnes’s expertise and advice was invaluable. She was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. Agnes made herself available to see several properties. She was very flexible about showing them after hours and on weekends. Agnes has a great sense for the value and quality of condos I saw. I can’t recommend her enough."
"I needed to relocate and sell my house. This was between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I had reservations and was thinking about waiting until Spring. Agnes assured me that the market was ripe at that time, but I didn't think it would happen. The house sold in 2 1/2 days after listing. Agnes assisted every step of the way and more than earned her compensation."
"Agnes was awesome when selling our home as well as going to through the process of buying and selecting another one. She's always very accommodating and would take us to see a potential property at the drop of a hat. What I appreciated most was her honesty when looking at a property - she never pushed anything on us and always offered an objective assessment of what we were looking at. Agnes worked with us to sell our home and then helped us in selecting another. She was great in both aspects"
"My husband and I contacted Agnes for help in finding our next home when we realized the Hollywood area of Brookfield was where we wanted to relocate. She helped us in that regard while also keeping us informed of other areas in the western suburbs that we might not know of and might also fill our needs. Although we settled in Brookfield it was helpful being given options.
Agnes guided us through the search, the find and the negotiation process in a most efficient and conciencious manner. Questions were answered, requests were seen to, she was always easy to reach. We were so pleasantly surprised at the seemlessness of the experience."
"When I was relocated for my job, I had my choice of real estate agents and chose Agnes due to her exceptional knowledge of the real estate trends in the area. I don't know any other realtor that knows the Brookfield/Riverside/LaGrange market and particularly the Hollywood Section of Brookfield, any better than Agnes. Agnes was very easy to work with and provided tremendous input which assisted in preparing my home for sale, she ordered professional photos of the home, and priced it perfectly for the market. My home was under contract the day it went on the market.
After my home went under contract, Agnes tirelessly completed numerous amounts of paperwork and served as a liason on our behalf with a third party relocation company which greatly assisted with a smooth sales transaction.
I would recommend Agnes to anyone. If I move back to the Chicago area in the future, I will be using Agnes again on the buying side.
OUTSTANDING TO WORK WITH, VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND VERY PROFESSIONAL"
"Agnes knows the area and knows the business. I would recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying. She will answer all your questions, gives great feedback and is there for you every step of the way. Just call her and meet with her and you will see what I mean. Thank you Agnes, you helped make our dreams come true!"
"Agnes was so helpful in every aspect of the home buying process. She knew the areas we were looking in and could offer knowledge about the places. As we looked through homes, Agnes would point out work that was poorly done or areas that needed attention. I truly appreciated this as we looked. Throughout the negotiation/closing process, Agnes gave us her advice about what to try to get and what she didn't think the sellers would budge on. Even the day of the closing, she texted my husband to see how everything was going. It was truly a pleasure to work with Agnes and I would recommend her to family and friends in a heartbeat! :)"
"Agnes came highly recommended by several friends yet outperformed expectations. After selling my house with a great listing and professional staging/photography, she aided in my lengthy search for a new home. She was always available for questions and viewings. Her honesty and frankness were also very appreciated. Above all, I never felt she was trying to sell me a house, but rather find me a home."
"Agnes truly helped me out in a time of need. I had to sell my Mother's home due to medical issues while I was starting a new job. She took care of all of the running around for me, several trips to the town hall for final meter reading, setting up home inspection etc... Another outstanding point is she always answered her phone, or if she was on a call, she was back in contact me in 5 minutes. She also substituted as a free therapist for me as I was going through a very emotional time. As for the sale, I believe she did get top dollar for a home that had not had much done since the 80's, her marketing strategy was top notch..Thanks Agnes"
"I called Agnes to help me find my new home after a family member met her at an open house and felt she would do a great job for me. That was an understatement. Agnes did an amazing job! She is very knowledgeable of the area, construction practices, and even offered design ideas to help me see the bigger picture in a home, when I wasn’t able to. During the entire process, she went above and beyond, answering every text, phone call and even checking with the village to resolve some concerns I had regarding a property. Agnes truly made me feel like I was always her top priority throughout the entire process. For these and so many other reasons, I would recommend Agnes to anyone hoping to have a partner who will work tirelessly on their behalf to find their new home. Thank you, again, Agnes! You’re the best!"
"Agnes took time to understand my family's needs and found us the perfect home! She offered expert knowledge of the local housing stock and knew what questions to ask. I highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs."
"Agnes is absolutely the best! She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and honest. I felt as if I could trust her implicitly from our first meeting, and I believed from day one that she would take care of me, and guide me through the confusing process that is selling a home. Boy was I right!!! She really cares about her clients and she goes so above and beyond to make the process seamless, and EASY! I honestly can't say enough good things about Agnes Halmon. Just call her! I promise you won't regret it!"
"Agnes is exceptional! She was kind, friendly, patient, knowledgeable and thorough. She did an excellent job helping our family find our first home. Even when the first home fell through (due to problems caused by the seller) she guided us through the process and explained our options at every step. She then found another home that is even better for our family. I cannot recommend Agnes enough."
"Agnes is great! Always answers! And she works day and night! Love her :) she helped us find a beautiful home. When one home fell through she got back 12 more listings ready for us to go see. Pick up earnest money for us, made sure we had good lenders, guides us through this tough process. And she spotted out bad and good in the homes that we could not always see, she wanted us to love our home."
"Five stars is not enough to indicate Agnes's excellent service to our family: her negotiation skills especially saved the day when the potential buyer got too demanding or began to have cold feet. Her knowledge, professionalism and insight into what we needed as sellers made for a smooth sale in a very rough market when many surrounding homes went unsold for long periods of time. I highly recommend Agnes Halmon in all of the capacities in which she specializes."
