Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Kenilworth Beach, Kenilworth, IL.

Henna is a gem of a real estate agent. She patiently helped us find our dream home and provided valuable insights and guidance along the way. She is pleasant to work with and never pressured us to buy anything. If fact, she was empathetic when we backed out of deals. She proved to be diligent, hard-working and a benefit to us as buyers. I would highly recommend Henna Koivisto"
