"Henna is the best on this field. She's on point with everything from house hunting to documentations, and even after the closing. She's amazing throughout the process, helped me sold my apartment on the price that I like and provided all the help (and great suggestions) to getting us our new home in the suburbs. She knows all the ropes of selling and buying a home. Henna is your person."


"Henna Koivisto was amazing to work with! She was knowledgeable and suggested things that really made the difference to sell my Edgewater Glen condo quickly and for a nice profit. I’d absolutely recommend Henna to anyone buying or selling. She made the proces enjoyable and with low stress. Thanks Henna!"


"Henna has helped our household several times already, no matter if we have been renting out, leasing or selling a home. She is motivated and responsive, and has great work ethics. She left no stone unturned to find the best possible solution for us, every time. A professional and reliable real estate agent that knows Chicago. Thanks Henna!"


"We have known Henna for many years and fully trusted her to help us through one of the most important decisions that we have ever made, to sell our condominium.
Henna knew immediately when that the best window of opportunity to sell was short and close, so she gave great advice that we should not delay and then worked diligently and quickly to publicize our place. Henna knew that our place was a bit of a hidden gem and wanted to make sure that everyone could see what a great opportunity this was.
She helped us to understand how best to display our condo and also how to de-clutter it in a way that would show it in the best light.
Henna was tireless in updating the listing as we got feedback from showings, contacting our building management and staff to build relationships and arranging and managing open houses to get as many interested people to see it as possible.
Henna also used her network to connect us to a trusted and excellent realtor in Florida, who was then able to work with us on that end of our plan too, she understood the whole personal, emotional, human perspective of selling a home and didn't just treat this as an impersonal sales transaction, which is extremely important.
Thanks to Henna's marketing skills and constant follow up to make sure that there were no last minute hitches or delays, we were able to sell quickly and close at, by far, the highest price for the same footprint condominium in the building.
We would fully recommend Henna as a great person and a great realtor to help you to successfully sell your home."



"Henna was generous with her time, receptive to our needs and worked hard to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our choice. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent both times we have moved in Chicago. I can’t recommend her enough!!!"


"Henna is a very professional realtor. We used her to rent our 3 bedroom, 1 bath apartment in DePaul/Lincoln Park. She worked really hard to advertise, show and complete the transaction, always keeping us fully informed what was going on. We recommend her very highly for any real estate needs. She simply is the best."


"Henna was a huge help in finding my new home. She did a great job of finding appropriate units in desirable locations. Did excellent job of pulling comps so we could come up with right pricing strategy. And when my first offer fell through due to contingency (owner got offer without one), Henna really went to work helping find my ultimate condo in Highland Park (and I love it!) She's lived in the area for a long time, is friendly, upbeat, personable and all about YOU, the customer!"



"When our long time Real Estate agent fell ill, we had a really challenging situation. Our tenant agreement was ending and we needed to close out the tenancy with him, clean out the apartment including disposal of some old furniture and do a full refresh and repair and list the apartment in readiness for the next rental. The main complication being that we were living in Europe and had very limited opportunities to be on site.
We contacted Henna and she jumped right in and took control of everything immediately, working with the tenant, the building management and various renovation service companies. As it happened the existing tenant wanted to stay a couple of extra months but didn't know who to discuss that with, Henna took care of that too.
Henna is diligent and detailed and has great determination to take care of everything, she has a huge amount of energy and makes sure that she is involved in all the things that need to be done. Thanks to her efforts all our challenges were taken off of our plate and handled. Even with us being in Europe, Henna made sure that we were fully informed, she's a great communicator, and let us know when our decisions were needed and by when. She also follows up to make sure that everyone is satisfied and taken care of.
She is trustworthy and honest, even bluntly honest, so that you know exactly where you stand and can make good choices.

We are completely satisfied and will certainly call her again when we need her services and, in short, if you want a Real Estate Agent that you can rely on to take care of your needs and even go far above and beyond the service level that you would normally expect, then Henna is the one you should contact"


"Henna has been a real help in searching and finding a place for us in Chicago over the last couple of years. Being new to the US and Chicago there’s a lot to learn, but Henna has made the accommodation hunting process easy and informed, with an excellent knowledge of the current market and areas.

She certainly is a worker, and puts in the hours to do all the contacting and arranging, plus she gets a sense of what you’re looking for easily. She’s been very professional in her dealings with us at all times, taking a balanced view of a situation from all sides.

We would certainly recommend her for any type of property transaction."


"Henna was doing really good work with us. First she took care of us when we were renting our condo and later she was doing really excellent work when we decided to sell our condo. She was taking care everything what we were asking.
She his doing excellent work if she is working for you."


"Henna was an excellent broker who did her best to help us get exactly the kind of place we were looking for in a really tight schedule. I recommend Henna Koivisto and @properties!"


"Henna was recommended to us following our relocation from Asia to Chicago and she was invaluable in our search for the ideal family home. As newcomers to Chicago, we relied on Henna’s vast local knowledge and expertise and fortunately we were never disappointed. Despite a long list of requirements and a limited budget, Henna always remained positive during our search and she went above and beyond to help us secure our family home. Henna is very personable and a great communicator. She kept us fully informed during the whole process, ensuring everything was taken care of. We were completely satisfied and would recommend Henna without reservation to handle any of your real estate needs."


"Henna is an excellent realtor; she made the process of selling my home a delight. Her friendly confident can-do attitude made me and prospective buyers feel at ease. She came with a list of potential buyers from her network of contacts and collaborations with other realtors in the area. Henna's very hardworking, organized with attention to detail. What I appreciated most was her honesty. She told me "like it was" and what I could expect. She promoted my home like it was the most important thing in her life! I can't say enough great things about her and the experience of selling my home with her as my agent."



"We were recommended Henna before we moved to Chicago and thankfully she made the process smooth and easy. Henna took the time to show us numerous apartments via Face Time and in person - nothing was too much trouble. Henna was very responsive to emails and it was clear from her communication that her top priority was to find us a suitable place to live. Her knowledge of Chicago is excellent. I would recommend her services without any hesitation; you won't be disappointed!"


"Henna has provided exceptional service throughout our experience with her. Purchasing a home is a big decision and it can be stressful at times, especially for us first-time buyers. My husband and I knew we were in good hands with Henna looking out for our best interests. She made sure we were well informed of every step along the way from the beginning our condo search all the way through to closing. She went above and beyond to investigate any concerns we had. Being so forthcoming and honest, she was clearly invested in ensuring we were truly happy with our home purchase. She is patient, kind, accountable and trustworthy. Needless to say, we highly recommend working with Henna!!"


"I can't recommend Henna enough. She listens well and is patient and was great at letting me know about new properties which matched my criteria. She was very accessible and followed through on everything throughout the process. Thanks, Henna!"


"Helena helped me find an apartment in Chicago in literally less than two weeks.

I'm in love with the area, as guided by Helena's strong knowledge of the Chicagoland area and her recommendations for good potential areas for me.

I recommend Helena to everyone who's new to Chicago and is looking for a quality place to live, or for more seasoned Chicago natives as well. Henna's got the hookups!"


"Henna paid close attention to what was important to us, what we valued, when searching for a home. She was always aware of our priorities when helping us sell our condo as well. She provided superb service from day one. Of all her great qualities, the best reason to work with Henna is her trustworthiness. She's honest, and always working for your best interests."


"Henna was knowledgable, friendly and went out of her way to ensure myself and my family settled into Chicago as quickly as possible. She was kind, thoughtful and understood our needs. She also made house-hunting fun and was so lovely with my children as they were dragged around days and days of houses! I cannot thank her enough for her time, knowledge and kindness."


"With only two comps to go on, I didn’t know how to price my one-bedroom condo in a nice, but unknown neighborhood on Chicago’s north side called West Ridge. But with a lot of research, Henna came up with the right price.
She was incredibly sensitive to my selling situation, which included an inhabiting tenant who was reluctant to have showings and a difficult condo association and management company. Henna gently and cordially worked with my renter to get amazing pictures taken and showings successfully scheduled. She also kept the management company informed every step of the way, even with them being quite annoying and rude.
She walked me through the whole closing process and got a deal done, from listing to closing, in approximately two months, and kept all parties informed and on the same page.
Henna was wonderful to work with and I would definitely use her for all my future real estate needs."


"Henna was exceptional and went above and beyond to find us a home that fit our needs. She provided us with a multitude of great options and was extremely helpful in the process."


"Henna was amazing throughout the whole process, including the quality of communication and organization before our arrival in Chicago and with the amount of time and expert advice she gave throughout the time we were looking at properties. She has a wealth of information about living in Chicago and is very generous with her time. Henna clearly has a passion for her job and enjoys sharing this with others. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or rent a property!!! Thank you Henna for all of your efforts in helping my family settle into our new home."

"I am very happy with the services provided by Henna. She really listened to my needs and expectations regarding my future home, neighborhood and lifestyle. She was proactive and organized viewings of a wide variety of properties at a short notice. She is very familiar with the City and the neighborhoods. I love my new home, it's beautiful and the environment is relaxing. Thank You, Henna, you really changed my life!"



"Due to job transfers, we needed to list our Chicago home for rent during the off season (winter). Despite many discouraging comments our listing agent Henna was persistent, proactively looking for interested and qualified tenants. She was the best kind of match-maker, as a result of which, we had a signed, active lease within a week of our home being vacated - a lot sooner than expected. Everything was surprisingly effortless for us, even if we know that there was a lot of work done in the background. Henna was not afraid of work. Her services did not end in just finding the tenants but she also set us up with several professional service providers, such as maintenance, snow removal and cleaning services. Her talent is caring and listening to her customers patiently, and understanding their true needs."



"I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about my experience working with you. You were very diligent and persistent in wanting to help me find my perfect home. I wouldn't have found the home that I am moving into this weekend without your help. You understood my needs, and were very open to working with me. Even when I was busy, you were hard at work making sure we found the best place for me. When it came to finding parking you were searching and calling for that as well. I appreciate everything you did for me and am very grateful that you were recommended to me. I highly recommend you to anyone looking for a new home."
