"Holly changed our expectation of realtors. She came in with data that made decisions easy and a plan that provided comfort. Her network of contacts led to many showings and eventually to the offer we ended up going with. But the most impressive thing about Holly was how she helped us navigate a difficult negotiation and follow on issues with the inspection. If it wasn’t for Holly, the sale would almost certainly have fallen thru. She is amazing!"


"Selling a home, especially after living in one for decades, can be a very stressful experience. Holly's approach, which was very professional and straightforward, yet kind, was just what we needed. In a fairly flat market, she sold our house before it made it to the open market. She is extremely knowledgeable about her industry which gives the seller confidence that the process will be handled properly. She and her staff are wonderful and responsive, often answering questions within minutes. Holly is not just a great broker, she is a fine person who was a pleasure to work with and given the opportunity, we would happily work with her again. Signing with Holly was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We would highly recommend her to all of our friends. If fact, we have already given her name to a few!"



"Holly is a great agent - she is super easy to work with and knows her stuff. She has extensive local knowledge which was especially helpful to us as we moved from out of state. We've never had an easier time buying a house :)"



"I can't say enough good things about Holly. I have used 5 agents throughout my home buying and selling processes and she was head and shoulders above the rest.

Many times it feels like that agents aren't working for you. You find the homes you want to see, you research the neighborhoods, you find the inspectors and repairmen to provide estimates. Holly is completely different, she did it all and was fully engaged in the process from the start to the closing and was a true partner in this process.

Finding the Home:
Holly used her vast network to find a home in the perfect location even before it hit the MLS. Since we were looking in very specific areas I thought our search process was going to take months, but Holly was able to find a home that met all of our criteria only after 1 week! Part of the quick search process can be attributed to good timing, but I firmly believe that without Holly's network we would not have found this home. We were the first people in and locked into a contract that day preventing us from getting into a bidding war.

Inspection:
Throughout the process, Holly's experience and expertise were invaluable. We ran into multiple inspection items and Holly guided us through each step. I mentioned that she was a true partner and that showed during the inspection process. Items that were identified by the inspector, she readily had a contact to remedy the issue and was texting and calling during the inspection to schedule an estimate and get a quote. Times where we were unable to meet the contractor, she showed up and clearly communicated back to us the underlying issue and what was needed to resolve the issue.

Appraisal:
We ran into a significant appraisal issue during our home purchase. Holly was able to run us through all the different scenarios which helped us better understand how cooperative or aggressive we needed to be with the sellers during the various back and forth conversations we had with the sellers. We ultimately were able to resolve the appraisal issue with the support and guidance of Holly.

Negotiations:
I think with any sale or purchase of a home there will be times where the negotiations get a bit intense. During our negotiations we were able to communicate to Holly our desired outcome and she provided candid feedback on whether we were overreaching or well within reason. Once we aligned with her on our desired outcome, she went to work talking with the seller's agents, the seller's attorney, and mortgage broker to find the best outcome for us. Holly left no stone unturned and was extremely responsive to our emails and texts.

Closing:
The closing went fairly smoothly and Holly was there the entire time answering any questions we had.

Overall, I cannot say enough good things about Holly and would highly recommend her."



"My husband and I embarked on our home buying journey this spring. We had been through this process before and we thought we knew what to expect. In times past, we had had a realtor, sure…but we did all “the work” ourselves…the research on the MLS, the price comps, researching inspection issues. I admittedly had thought of realtors as a necessary evil in the home buying process– we needed them to be there to take us to see the homes we had researched ourselves, but that was really it. This time around, we received a recommendation to use Holly Connors to buy in Arlington Heights, as she was knowledgeable about the area. Turns out, we had not realized what we had been missing in a realtor until we met Holly.

It was clear from our first meeting that Holly was different. We filled out a list of things we were looking for in a new home as we had in the past, but Holly took the time to understand the "why" of our requests, and to understand us as a family. She posed questions i hadn't even considered -what kind of neighborhood did I want for my daughter, what kind of interactions did I want with my neighbors, what was important to our family in a community, did we see this next move as a “forever move”? Her knowledge of the community, as well as the fine details of home construction were clear from the beginning; It was not something she was showing off, it was something she was confident in. While I was accustomed to having realtors trying to convince me the home we were viewing was something I should love when I didn’t, Holly would instead look around at a home and tell us “It’s nice, but we can do better for your money. I want you to love it”. It was a relief, and amazing to feel like this person was truly a partner with us in this process. She understood how big of a decision this was for us and wanted the best for us.

Our search was a short one, thanks to Holly. We were moving from the city, and in addition to all the home features we were looking for, perhaps the most important one to us was walkability. We wanted to be close to a community downtown area, and to the Metra train. In the first week of working with Holly, she found something perfect for our family. While part of this is certainly luck, Holly’s connections got us an early viewing of this house before it hit the MLS, and even before other early viewings of this home. She pushed hard on our behalf, and got our foot in the door.

While the search was short and easy, the rest of the process was anything but. The next 60 days were a whirlwind of difficult inspection negotiations, an extremely low appraisal (largely at the fault of the seller’s agent who was woefully unprepared), switching lenders and a range of emotions from the seller and their team of agents and lawyers. We were stressed, and often not the best versions of ourselves. Throughout this process, Holly was truly incredible. She was relentless on our behalf. She called in favors throughout her network of contractors, inspectors, lenders – a network that we sorely needed in our process (Consequently, when we met each person in her network, it was clear that they appreciated Holly as much as we did). She occupied our energetic 3 year old during our inspection so we could focus on details. When we were at our peak stress levels, she commiserated with us about how difficult this process was, at the same time reassuring us that the deal would happen. She even happily arranged visits to rental options when we felt unsure if our deal would go through – and even in this scenario, she was trying to negotiate monthly rent on our behalf!

In the end, everything worked out and we are in our “forever home”. I really believe that if we had had any other realtor, it would not have worked out. Holly was ruthless on our behalf. She left no stone unturned in difficult negotiations; she was honest and supportive throughout the entire process. She thinks of her clients as real people and not just another paycheck. I’m thankful we had the chance to work with her, and will be talking about how fantastic she is to anyone who is willing to listen!"



"Holly Connors is impressive. She knows the market well and was able to accurately assess the value of our home and sell it quickly. Holly and her team are efficient, technologically ahead of the curve and very professional. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking to sell their home."



"Holly worked tirelessly to find a qualified buyer for our home. She accomplished all this within a very tight time frame. She is extremely knowledgeable."



"Holly made the house selling process enjoyable. (I didn't think that could be possible!). Her communication and attention to detail made me confident that I had hired the right broker to sell my home. Her advice on preparing my home for sale, inspection and appraisal was invaluable. I was very pleased with the outcome of the sale, and I have been recommending Holly to all my friends!!"



"Holly is very knowledgeable. She was great to work with and gave us very useful advice when making our home purchase. We had very specific criteria and she narrowed down our search to relevant homes, while still showing us options for comparison."



"Holly helped us find a great home, in the neighborhood we wanted. We have great schools, great neighbors and we got a great deal! Holly also helped us sell our house within the first few days it was on the market-our offer was full price! We're so thankful we worked with Holly-she made the experience fun!"



"Holly sold our house in just two days. She gave us the attention that we needed and kept us informed throughout the whole process. We will definitely use Holly again and would recommend her to everyone."



"@properties/GetBurbed made the house buying process about as painless as you could realistically hope for. Certainly a top notch company."



"Excellent broker. Professional. Knowledgeable. Reasonable. Would not hesitate to have Holly involved in a future house buy or sell!"



"Holly Kapsa did such an amazing job to help me find the right home for me. She was very knowledgeable and guided me well through the entire process. She also took close note on determining what things I liked in a house and never tried to push me into looking at anything else. Overall, I'm very happy with @Properties and Holly is just such an amazing realtor!"



"Never before has a real estate transaction gone as smoothly as this one. Holly made every effort to de-stress the process of selling the family home for my mother-in-law as she faced the difficult task of downsizing to assisted living. I highly recommend @properties and Holly Connors!"


"Holly Connors is amazing! We had the best experience purchasing our new home thanks to Holly. She really went above and beyond. She taught us so much along the way and always made us feel comfortable with the decisions being made. She kept us in the loop at all times with constant updates and feedback. Holly made it a stress free process and found us the perfect home. She always listened to all of our requests and responded to all questions and comments almost immediately. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent!"



"We really enjoyed working with Holly and have recommended her to our friends and family. She is an amazing resource for her knowledge of process and markets, while understanding what we were looking for in a home (location, size, amenities, etc.)."



"Holly sold my family home, within a month, for more than the asking price. She has helped my son, my daughter and me purchase a home at the right price with all the required amenities over the past two years. She is punctual and communicates clearly and honestly. She shares helpful information regarding the market, resale value and neighborhood culture. Holly was a delight to deal with. She had answers to all my questions and knew professionals to support the home buying/selling process. She is the best realtor in the Chicago area."



"Holly made the house selling process enjoyable. (I didn't think that could be possible!). Her communication and attention to detail made me confident that I had hired the right broker to sell my home. Her advice on preparing my home for sale, inspection and appraisal was invaluable. I was very pleased with the outcome of the sale, and I have been recommending Holly to all my friends!!"



"We are so pleased that Holly was able to steer us in the right direction to get our condo. There was a bidding war and fortunately for us, Holly knew exactly how we should respond!"



"I began to believe my move to Chicago really could happen when I met Holly. She combines thorough knowledge of the area with deep love for it - -and she shares her knowledge generously, even before she is "hired" as one's agent. She listens carefully and modifies her recommendations accordingly, and she works with excellent partners and support staff. For all these reasons, she guides an efficient and enjoyable search process. Around the edges, one glimpses her high standards for herself and for other members of the real estate profession she loves. When she was listing agent for properties we saw, she honored all her obligations openly and clearly. She was a skilled advisor throughout the negotiation process, and stands ready to ease the move with her contacts and associations. A definite "yes! work with Holly!"



"From Day 1 Holly was extremely helpful in helping us find the perfect house for our growing family. We were very impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the market and homes in general and took the time to explain her reasoning which we appreciated. I would recommend Holly and the rest of @properties team to anyone looking to buy or selling their home.
"Holly definitely went above and beyond for my wife and I. Five stars really isn’t enough to give her. Solid and consistent service, exceeded in:
1. Expertise - The quickest way to know a person’s level of knowledge is by asking tons of questions. I was very impressed every time we got the response from Holly. Her expertise and timely response makes her extremely reliable.
2. Timely communication – Holly has so many clients to answer to and I was amazed by how he was still able to juggle all that responsibility and respond to our emails, texts, and phone calls in a very timely manner. It’s not just about the deliver on time; it’s the accuracy of her response and the knowledge she has that really makes the whole home buying process smooth.
3. Care – this is where I really think Holly went above and beyond. She thinks on her feet and offers outside the box solutions when faced with adversity during a sale.
We will hopefully never have to move again but Holly will have the referral for my friends and family for sure!"



"Holly is very dedicated to her clients. Her wealth of knowledge regarding schools, home values, locations, and the overall market made our home search much easier. She was available to show us many properties the first day they went on the market. We are very pleased with her services and highly recommend her!"



"We were so happy that we decided to use Holly Connors as our real estate broker. She was knowledgeable and helped us tremendously in making the right decision on the property we purchased. She was very tuned into our wants/needs and was quick to change when our needs changed. We loved that Holly had a pulse on the property values in the area and was able to help us get a realistic value of the properties we were looking at. We also found it extremely valuable that Holly could assess issues in some of the properties and help us understand how big of an issue it would be. The house hunt got very overwhelming and Holly's guidance was invaluable.We really felt like Holly became an extended part of our family. As happy as we were when our sale finally closed and we were able to move into our new home, it was a bitter sweet day because we would not be interacting with Holly on a daily basis as we had for the past 4 months. I would highly recommend using Holly to anyone I know that is looking to sell/buy a property."



"Holly Connors is wonderful to work with! She helped us sell our home at a price higher than our expectations. She is very knowledgeable of the market conditions and I would recommend Holly to anyone looking to buy or sell. She is very responsive and quick to answer questions or set up appointments. She is also helping us purchase a house and is very supportive and patient; working hard to meet our needs and desires for our next home. Thank you, Holly!"



"Holly is one of the rare realtors that is down-to-earth, honest, and extremely diligent, plus a true pleasure to work with! I cannot recommend her enough, which I do to every one of my friends and family that need a Chicago realtor and she goes above and beyond (even most recently to help a friend find a private house to rent for a wedding that is clearly outside of her normal realtor transactions). I have worked with Holly to both buy a house and rent a place, and plan on using her for all my real estate needs. She is knowlegable about both the downtown Chicago market and the suburbs. From 2005 to 2013, I felt like no time at all had passed since working together. Holly always amazes me with all her knowlege of the market. Plus, its great to talk through all your future real estate considerations since she has invaluable knowledge on the current and future state of the market. You truly can't find a better broker in Chicago in my opinion! Thanks again Holly!"



"I had the pleasure of working with Holly during a recent work relocation. Holly was a breath of fresh air after having another agent fail to meet our expectations. Holly listened to our needs and filtered through our wish lists working diligently in a difficult market to find the right property that has since become our new home. Having the stress of living in a hotel through the week, learning a new work facility and team, and trying to find time to search for a new home was enough. Holly performed a great deal of leg work that was above and beyond the call of duty. For several months as we searched Holly maintained a constant optimistic open line of communication. I felt as though I had a partner during our search and not just an agent. After our closing one might say we had our first friend in the area in Holly. If my wife and I had questions Holly was always there with a helpful suggestion. I would highly recommend anyone moving to the Chicago area to use Holly Danielson Conners in their search."



"Holly was truly a pleasure to work with. She often pointed out concerning issues with homes that my husband and I were oblivious too. She was super responsive to every call and email (I do wonder how she is able to maintain a personal life!) and really held our hands through the entire process. She helped us find a house we love in a difficult seller's market."



"Great person to work with on the purchase of our new home!!! She knew which houses would satisfy our "want" list and had a great organized group ready the weekend we came to buy our home. This made relocation on the buying end a much smoother process!! Her contacts with others in the industry meant we didn't have to search out the lawyer, etc for the buying process!! We will work with Holly again!!!"



"Holly was the best! I called her and told her we needed to find a house within about 6 weeks. She said OK and went to work. Her knowledge of real estate, enthusiasm, honesty, and intelligence were evident from the start. We couldn't have done it without her and am so glad we used her as our agent. We recommend her highly to anyone searching for a new home!"



"Holly's strength and expertise in marketing made it easy to sell our house. Holly gives you all the information up front. She does a very thorough job of marketing your home and letting you know what it takes to find the right buyer. Holly sets a realistic expectation of the value of your home based on market trends and analytics. It's your choice to listen. She always makes herself available by phone or email."


"In short, she nailed it! Holly is professional, highly knowledgeable, and very responsive. Most of all, she is a lot of fun and makes the process enjoyable. We had an offer in a week, Holly hammered out the contract, and we accepted very close to asking price. She is legit and we highly recommend Holly Connors!"


"From start to finish Holly was everything we needed in a teammate in the sale of our home."


"Holly was a SHE-RO who saved the day selling my mother's house pre-listing, seemlessly - truly without any hassles let-a-lone problems all while diplomatically kept the peace in my family. Above and beyond professional. Ever so grateful!"


"WOW! I just can't say enough great things about the people working for this company. They go over and above to make it happen. Holly helped get the contract together and met me at the property weekly for repair estimates before the closing! It was amazing. The team is knowledgeable, highly competent and very personable."


"Outstanding service. Gracious & understanding during a hard time."


"Holly Connors worked very hard to sell my house. I was happy with her service."


"I was impressed with Holly from the first phone call and was further impressed upon meeting her for the first time. Her knowledge of the market and statistics were outstanding and she did not disappoint throughout the whole process. Holly was efficient, helpful, and willing to do whatever it took to get our house sold, including getting hands-on and assisting with staging. She actively worked to sell our home and followed up on potential buyers. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone and would use her again!"


"Never before has a real estate transaction gone as smoothly as this one. Holly made every effort to de-stress the process of selling the family home for my mother-in-law as she faced the difficult task of downsizing to assisted living. I highly recommend @properties and Holly Connors!"


"Holly was fun to work with, she did her magic and we sold the first day of listing, and for a great price!"


"Holly is awesome! She was able to sell our house in record time even though it was located on one of the busiest streets in Arlington Heights! Two other Realtors previously failed to get even a single offer."


"Holly is a dedicated, and easy to work with professional! We had contracted with two Realtors previously to sell our home, and Holly was able to close the deal in a short amount of time. She had a plan, a targeted buyer, and clear implementation plan. @properties is the company to work with and Holly is your realtor of choice!"


"Holly did an excellent job in selling this difficult property."


"Holly worked for many months to find my Fiance & myself the perfect house for us. As a first time home buyer, she pointed out things that I would have overlooked during the process. She understood our budget, timeline & was able to find a house that we have just moved to, with a few weeks left on our lease at our old apartment."


"It was a pleasure working with Holly and her team. Holly always got back to us right away with any questions we had and was able to quickly get us out to see the homes we were interested in. Holly is personable and honest which made the home buying process fun. Holly also had great references for inspectors, attorneys, etc. The house we purchased had multiple offers and Holly was able to help guide us to make it our home!"


"This is the third property we've worked with Holly on and to say that her professionalism and expertise is the best in the industry, is an understatement. There isn't another person I would entrust with my real estate needs. On top of that, she's hilarious!"


"Holly is extremely knowledgeable about the market and every part of the home search and purchase process. She was always available to answer any questions in a straightforward and honest manner and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with each aspect of the of the home buying process."


"Holly and her team were amazing . We are out of country buyers and they made the experience easy and fun. Holly was extremely knowledgeable and honest. I would recommend her to everyone."


"Holly is quite adept in her role of a broker with @properties. I requested Holly as my broker due to her fine reputation and ability to move property in an expedient manner. That was accomplished to my satisfaction. Holly is excellent in her job."


"Holly is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and a pleasure to work with."


"We are so pleased that Holly was able to steer us in the right direction to get our condo. There was a bidding war and fortunately for us, Holly knew exactly how we should respond!"


"I feel like I contacted her more than the average buyer, but she was always willing to take my call and answer any questions I had regarding the sale and purchase process. Definitely a great resource for both processes."


"Absolutely every aspect of the sale of my home was handled in a professional manner. I was so impressed. The photos taken of my home and the web presence created helped sell it quickly. Every legal and ethical disclosure was explained fully. I never felt rushed or pressured. It was an emotional experience but I was supported by a great team of professional staff. I would highly recommend this company and these individuals to friends and family for home sales and purchases without reservation! I am so glad I chose them to sell my home"


"We were very pleased with Hollys ability to sell our old house and help us buy our new home. When selling our home, we found Holly to be responsive and knowledgeable about the market. Where Holly really shined as a professional was with her ability to leverage her network to bring in buyers. Most realtors we spoke with used the traditional efforts of sticking a sign in the front yard, hosting an open house and listing online. Hollys marketing went beyond this to actively reach-out to prospective buyers and agents based on an understanding of the neighborhood. This proactive and creative approach is what helped get our home sold.On the buy side, Hollys network in the North and Northwest suburbs is unparalleled. Her knowledge of the area went beyond the town and neighborhood but to the school and block level. She knew of homes before they went on sale and she was always able to get us on day one, sometimes before. In a hot housing market, this was the key to us finding a great home. She was direct when she needed to be but also very patient and easy to work with. Because of her hard work and ability to get things done, we highly recommend Holly without reservations."

"Holly was a true professional in her work and she would be right upfront with her opinions. She was always willing to help her in our search and abide by all our constraints. She took time initially to understand our need so as to filter the choices and she would do her due diligence on our selection even before we stepped in the house to pinpoint pros and cons. I would truly recommend her to others."


"Holly Connors not only does a fantastic job of pricing, marketing and negotiating a deal, she also thinks outside of the box to develop creative solutions to get the deal done. In our case, Holly sought out temporary housing options for our potential tenants to stay between their lease end date and our availability date. She showed a commitment to find a solution for both parties. We are happy to report that the efforts that Holly put forth led to a deal at list!"


"Holly is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in her craft and her service levels top notch. She was a great guide in our quest to find a home and was patient with us as our search took longer than most. When we found the home we wanted, her experience and negotiation skills helped us secure it and get us to the closing. We came to rely on her answers and opinions for many questions that we had during the process. We were fortunate to have worked with Holly and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate."



"Holly is simply the best of the best!! She truly cares about finding you the right home for you and your family and will do whatever she can to make that happen. Holly and the rest of her staff always goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of. Her knowledge, dedication and expertise are what separates her from the rest. There's just no comparison."


"Holly was the second broker we used to sell our house. Our first broker had the listing for 6 months and did not generate one offer. Holly listed the house and we had an offer in just a few days. She seems to really understand the market in Arlington Heights. We had already moved to another house and Holly coordinated everything for us and made the process very easy. She was always quick to respond and communicated to us any issues in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Holly to anyone who needs a realtor!"


"Holly made the house selling process enjoyable. (I didn't think that could be possible!). Her communication and attention to detail made me confident that I had hired the right broker to sell my home. Her advice on preparing my home for sale, inspection and appraisal was invaluable.

"Holly was there for us in every aspect and made sure we were well informed. We couldn't be happier."



"Thanks for everything"


"We have utilized Holly as both a purchase and sales agent for our home.. We have been extremely impressed and happy with the outcome on both ends of our home purchase and sale. Holly was open with us at all times and allowed us to accurately price our home for the best possible outcome. The sale of our property was much sooner than we had originally expected.I would recommend Holly to anyone who is in the market to either sell,or purchase a property."

"I felt we were in good hands from looking at the first house to completing the closing. Holly made sure there were no surprises, and "held our hand" throughout the whole process. She stayed positive and professional, and had our confidence and trust at all times. Thanks Holly! We love our new home and appreciate all you did to make it possible."


"Holly sold our house at a price significantly better than we expected and so quickly that we didn't even need to have marketing materials printed!"


"Holly was a great help to us in ensuring an easy transistion. This was the first of the past moves where my wife was more involved, and as a reult there was a greater stress level for her as we began to seek to sell our property. Holly was able to put her at ease and demonstrate how she understood the stress points and would ensure that she would navigate her through those areas. Our total experience was very professional. I had no doubts that Holly would represent us well and negotiate a deal that would be satisfactory. The results of her efforts were greatly appreciated."


"We first found out about @properties through friends. Once we met Holly, we knew she was looking out for our best interest. She walked us through the sale process from start to finish and answered any questions we had. She did a complete market analysis to competitively price our house and was a big help in preparing the house to be on the market. Holly stayed in close communication with us from the day we met her to the day we closed. We would highly recommend @properties to anyone."


"Holly was on top of things from the onset. She took the time to listen to our needs and our wants in looking for our new home. She was responsive to emails. We felt she made herself available to discuss our needs and questions. In addition to the @ properties suggested listings we would also searched the internet and would send suggestions for Holly's opinion. She would provide feedback quickly and you got an honest assessment of the opportunity. She took the time to explain the pros and cons of each house and/or location. You can tell she really knows her market in the Northwest Suburbs. Holly was great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy a home."


"Holly is an attentive and aware broker. When an issue arose, she usually responded within moments with either an answer or a time she would reply with an answer. Just what a seller wants to hear."


"Holly was always available. She knew exactly what I wanted. I will definitely use her again."


"Holly is very knowledgable and got the job done. She negotiated a full price offer for our home in 17 days."


"Thorough, professional, knowledgable, aggressive and, most important, a great sense of humor. Very much enjoyed working with Holly."


"Working with Holly has been a wonderful experience. From day 1 she pulled out all the stops to not just find us "a" home but find us "our" home. We appreciate that she took the time to really get to know us and what our needs were for a new home, and once she did, she was very adept at finding houses that matched what we were looking for. We had every faith in her ability to find us the right house and get it at the right price...and she did. People told us that buying a house would be a stressful experience; they clearly hadn't worked with someone like Holly. She did everything she could to make the entire experience smooth and stress free. We have already recommended her to others and will enthusiastically continue to do so."


"Holly consistently has gone above and beyond for us throughout the entire process of purchasing a home. We are first-time homebuyers, and we felt that Holly explained every aspect of the process to us thoroughly and patiently. She made herself available to us in spite of our busy schedules, and she was exceptionally prompt to respond to any e-mails, texts, or calls - even on the weekends. Holly understood that we were not just looking for a house, but also for a community to call home. She was able to tailor our search to our needs perfectly. We are thrilled to move into our new home! We have been constantly impressed by the work Holly does, and enjoyed working with her. We cannot recommend her highly enough."


"Holly did an amazing job! I would highly recommend her for either a buy or sale of a home. Her style is honest and direct, and she went above and beyond to accommodate us and make the process go as smooth as possible."


"There is no realtor like Holly, period. She has answers for everything, beyond knowledgeable of her industry, and gets the job done right. Her flexibility, honesty, and her "no-fluff-hit-you-between-the-eyes" style makes her stand out from the rest. We've had realtors try and sell us homes, but Holly has tried to not sell us certain homes no matter how much we wanted it. That makes her extremely credible for looking out for our best interest. Her work ethic is outstanding, and I'm curious when she sleeps. Without a doubt, I'd use her again...but I'm sure she'd run for the hills. :)"


"We were so happy that we decided to use Holly Connors as our real estate broker. She was knowledgeable and helped us tremendously in making the right decision on the property we purchased. She was very tuned into our wants/needs and was quick to change when our needs changed. We loved that Holly had a pulse on the property values in the area and was able to help us get a realistic value of the properties we were looking at. We also found it extremely valuable that Holly could assess issues in some of the properties and help us understand how big of an issue it would be. The house hunt got very overwhelming and Holly's guidance was invaluable.We really felt like Holly became an extended part of our family. As happy as we were when our sale finally closed and we were able to move into our new home, it was a bitter sweet day because we would not be interacting with Holly on a daily basis as we had for the past 4 months. I would highly recommend using Holly to anyone I know that is looking to sell/buy a property."


"Holly was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable and got things done very smoothly. I couldn't imagine trying to close without her help, especially as I was doing this during the peak of my busiest work schedule. Thanks again!"


"Holly is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and hard-working agent. She took us to countless homes, was always upfront about the pros and cons of each, and negotiated hard for us. I highly recommend using Holly to find your house."


"Holly Connors not only does a fantastic job of pricing, marketing and negotiating a deal, she also thinks outside of the box to develop creative solutions to get the deal done. In our case, Holly sought out temporary housing options for our potential tenants to stay between their lease end date and our availability date. She showed a commitment to find a solution for both parties. We are happy to report that the efforts that Holly put forth led to a deal at list!"


"Holly is an exceptional real estate broker. She made the process very easy on us and her response time always exceeded our expectations. She is direct, knowledgeable and is always looking out for her clients. She caught a few issues for us that we really did not even notice and would have slipped by, if she wasn't so detailed oriented. I would highly recommend her to anyone that asked or inquired."


"Holly was a true professional in her work and she would be right upfront with her opinions. She was always willing to help her in our search and abide by all our constraints. She took time initially to understand our need so as to filter the choices and she would do her due diligence on our selection even before we stepped in the house to pinpoint pros and cons. I would truly recommend her to others."


"Holly was a balance of professional and approachable. She made the home selling process easy as can be. I appreciated her honesty, expedience, and accessibility. She definitely knows her craft and would be an excellent agent for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I would strongly recommend her to anyone in the real estate market."


"Holly is very dedicated to her clients. Her wealth of knowledge regarding schools, home values, locations, and the overall market made our home search much easier. She was available to show us many properties the first day they went on the market. We are very pleased with her services and highly recommend her!"



"Holly was truly a pleasure to work with. She often pointed out concerning issues with homes that my husband and I were oblivious too. She was super responsive to every call and email (I do wonder how she is able to maintain a personal life!) and really held our hands through the entire process. She helped us find a house we love in a difficult seller's market."


"Great person to work with on the purchase of our new home!!! She knew which houses would satisfy our "want" list and had a great organized group ready the weekend we came to buy our home. This made relocation on the buying end a much smoother process!! Her contacts with others in the industry meant we didn't have to search out the lawyer, etc for the buying process!! We will work with Holly again!!!"


"Holly was a wonderful real estate agent and she helped us find our dream home. I would highly recommend using her to find your house."


"We chose Holly because we were confident she would sell our home and did not disappoint."


"Holly was the best! I called her and told her we needed to find a house within about 6 weeks. She said OK and went to work. Her knowledge of real estate, enthusiasm, honesty, and intelligence were evident from the start. We couldn't have done it without her and am so glad we used her as our agent. We recommend her highly to anyone searching for a new home!"


"Holly's strength and expertise in marketing made it easy to sell our house. Holly gives you all the information up front. She does a very thorough job of marketing your home and letting you know what it takes to find the right buyer. Holly sets a realistic expectation of the value of your home based on market trends and analytics. It's your choice to listen. She always makes herself available by phone or email."


"We really enjoyed working with Holly and have recommended her to our friends and family. She is an amazing resource for her knowledge of process and markets, while understanding what we were looking for in a home (location, size, amenities, etc.)."


"I was referred to her by neighbor as been the best realtor, and my neighbor was right. Holly is amazing!!!!!!!!The company @Properties network and marketing is Outstanding. They even create pamphlets for visitors to take during the showing. I interviewed few other companies - but this is the best. No wonder they are growing in the suburbs - they are number one in Chicago City already.I highly recommend Holly. I will use her to find me my new place."


"Holly has her eye on everything and is so knowledgeable. She was able to tell us when looking at houses about pipes needing replaced, adding on to seeing every little detail about the house and neighborhood. She is great to work with and always open and communicating with us during the entire process. From the start of our search through the closing, Holly has been involved like she was doing this for her family. We are so lucky to have worked with her."


"Holly is one of the rare realtors that is down-to-earth, honest, and extremely diligent, plus a true pleasure to work with! I cannot recommend her enough, which I do to every one of my friends and family that need a Chicago realtor and she goes above and beyond (even most recently to help a friend find a private house to rent for a wedding that is clearly outside of her normal realtor transactions). I have worked with Holly to both buy a house and rent a place, and plan on using her for all my real estate needs. She is knowledgeable about both the downtown Chicago market and the suburbs. From 2005 to 2013, I felt like no time at all had passed since working together. Holly always amazes me with all her knowledge of the market. Plus, its great to talk through all your future real estate considerations since she has invaluable knowledge on the current and future state of the market. You truly can't find a better broker in Chicago in my opinion! Thanks again Holly!"


"Holly got us a great house at a great price in a great location! What more could you ask for?"


"Holly Connors helped us find a home in a very difficult market. She is very passionate about her business and loves what she does."


"I had the pleasure of working with Holly during a recent work relocation. Holly was a breath of fresh air after having another agent fail to meet our expectations. Holly listened to our needs and filtered through our wish lists working diligently in a difficult market to find the right property that has since become our new home. Having the stress of living in a hotel through the week, learning a new work facility and team, and trying to find time to search for a new home was enough. Holly performed a great deal of leg work that was above and beyond the call of duty. For several months as we searched Holly maintained a constant optimistic open line of communication. I felt as though I had a partner during our search and not just an agent. After our closing one might say we had our first friend in the area in Holly. If my wife and I had questions Holly was always there with a helpful suggestion. I would highly recommend anyone moving to the Chicago area to use Holly Connors in their search."


"We worked with Holly Connors and could not have been more pleased with her vast knowledge and can do attitude. She knew exactly where our home needed to be priced and we sold for 98% of our list price.She kept us informed of every detail and our home sold within 48 hours of being listed.I would recommend Holly and @Properties to anyone looking for a completely pain-free and professional experience. Thanks a million Holly!!"


"Holly is a true professional in the Real Estate business. She works extremely hard and efficiently for her clients. She is superior to her competition and has a terrific network for other needed services along the buy/sell cycle.You will be pleased you partnered with Holly Connors!"


"I'd like to highly recommend my agent, Holly Danielson (now Connors). Holly is patient and extraordinarily hard-working and she found me a perfect condo right in my price range. Holly spent endless hours looking at condos, went way out of her way to answer my questions (and I have a LOT of questions). Furthermore, though I was very familiar with greater Chicago, Holly demonstrated an incredible knowledge of the area and area resources, including an electrician and general contractor to fix up some of the "vintage charm" in my dining room. I was very lucky to work with Holly and she made the experience of buying a first home a great experience."


"Holly was truly focused on us, as her customers. She understood what we were looking for and had recommendations of homes/areas based on our needs. She has a strong work ethic and is knowledgeable of the industry."


"Holly was very professional and knows the market very well! She is very good at what she does!"


"Our relo company referred Holly to us, along with 2 other realtors, for us to chose who we wanted to use in the selling of our house. I was most impressed with Holly's professionalism and knowledge of the market. I liked Holly's assertiveness and within just a week, our house was listed. Soon after, we had a contract on the house. Throughout the entire process, Holly kept us updated and her communication with us was fantastic. We were very pleased with Holly and would recommend her highly!!"


"Extremely helpful, responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! Pulled every string possible for me to reach a tight closing schedule! Very thankful for being able to work with her!"


"Holly supported us throughout our home search and helped us really identify what it was we wanted in a home. We re grateful for her professionalism, enthusiasm, real estate experience, and overall commitment."


"In a challenging market agents need to have patience and perseverance, Holly Connors has both. It's a pleasure to work with Holly because she understands the market, her clients and has a great team of attorneys and lenders to get the deal done. I have worked with Holly on both sides of the deal and she is an exceptional agent. I look forward to showing her properties and welcome her into mine."


"In my opinion, Holly Connors is by far the best realtor in the state of Illinois. Holly sold our house in just 6 days! From my first interaction with her to the closing of my home, she has been hard-working, responsive, dependable and professional. Months before meeting Holly, my husband and I had our home listed with another realtor. After a stressful few months, we still couldn't sell it, so we took it off the market. When we decided to list our home again this Spring, we began looking for another realtor. We met with several who were still not very impressive. By a stroke of luck, we found Holly. Holly immediately took charge. She gave us direction for staging our home and confidence in the process, which greatly reduced our stress levels. She is extremely smart and hard-working. She responded immediately to every phone call and email (I received emails from her as late as midnight and as early as 6 a.m.). She also has great interpersonal skills, which I've learned is so important in a realtor. I cannot say enough about what an amazing realtor Holly is. I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know."


"Holly Connors is a driven and outstanding professional. As a realtor with Baird and Warner I had the opportunity to work with Holly in a very demanding and fast-paced environment in which she thrived. Her expertise in marketing, communications and negotiation helped her to become one of @ Properties' most valued agents. She is truly passionate about her work and is also committed to helping others achieve success, a quality that can be rare in the world of residential real estate."


"Holly and I have worked together on numerous occasions. I have found Holly to be an exceptional person to work with. She's very hard working, a team player, and strives to get the job done with utmost integrity and attention to detail. If given the opportunity I would work with Holly again."



"We worked with Holly to rent out our Chicago condominium. As we live out of town, it's always difficult to find someone you can trust to deal with all the little things that come up, but Holly was great and would absolutely work with her again!"


"Holly is one of a few individuals of whom I completely trust. She is a complete professional, very diligent, and most of all personable. I know that she can be counted on to be "the" expert in her field because of her she always strives to be the best. I have known Holly for almost 7 years and without a doubt she has the integrity, the capability, and the personality to make any deal at any reasonable price happen."


"I've known Holly professionally and personally for 10 years. She excels as a top professional in the real estate industry. Her drive and superior client service is reflected in her referral base and industry leading sales record. Holly has given her time in numerous not-for-profit and volunteer organizations. She consistently works on improving herself and the lives of those around her."


"Holly sold many properties for me, and she is fantastic to work with. She really knows what questions to ask on behalf of her clients. I will definitely continue to work with Holly because of her professionalism and willingness to communicate during the entire transaction. Highly recommend her!"



"Holly Danielson exemplifies the professionalism, intelligence, and dedication that I hope to find in those I work with."

"Holly Connors is an excellent broker who helped us close on a property in an area of Glenview where my wife and I were zoned in on. She helped make our dream into a reality. Our transaction was a bit complicated but Holly was able to maintain the communication by all parties with ease and assured us for the entire process that we would successfully close. She helped make us comfortable with our purchase decisions all the way from making the offer to closing. She is a hard working individual and responds in such a quick manner to our every question. She is also technology savvy which was a big plus for us for communicating via emails, texts, cloud services, etc. She is also very knowledgable in real estate and it is immediately apparent when talking with her. Holly is also very direct and tells it like the way it is with no sugar coating. So, that in itself was a win-win for us.

Holly always seemed to be one step ahead of the fast moving Arlington Heights market. I will be highly recommending Holly to all our friends and relatives."

"Holly and Barb were exceptional. Alley originally was helping me to look to purchase a property. I decided to rent a condo and sell my suburban home. She recommended Holly and referred John who was experienced in rentals. I admired her integrity in the matter. All involved had an amazing knowledge of the market. I wanted service and I received it ten fold. It was the best experience I have ever had in buying or selling a home. My condo is a perfect fit for me. Everyone involved made my Chicago experience great."

As a native to the Chicagoland area she was extremely knowledgeable and realistic in regards to the market and helped us feel comfortable in picking the suburb that was best for our family. Going in with no time table or expectations we put a bid in on a house within 5 days. We are now thrilled with our house, and coincidentally we are Holly's neighbors!"
