"To Whom it May Concern:
I am writing to recommend Jane Swibel as an outstanding realtor. At a time when two-flats in Oak Park were selling extremely rapidly, Jane’s expertise and connections were what allowed us to buy the beautiful Victorian two-flat we’d been seeking. Jane went out of her way to get us showings and helped us through every step of the process.
Not only did Jane help us with our purchase, she also made all the suggestions on how to renovate our property that turned it into a beautiful home. She made excellent suggests for all the different properties we viewed as well as for the home we ultimately purchased -- this was a great help in selecting our house. She has amazing expertise regarding historic homes, and has connections with a variety of contractors in the Oak Park/ River Forest area that all did outstanding, timely work. Jane even helped with details like paint color selection and window treatments, and her eye for color is amazing. She’s also a delightful person, extremely enjoyable to work with.
We’ve been living in our home for about nine months now, and every day I enjoy all the historic detail that Jane’s expertise helped us bring out in our lovely house. I recommend Jane enthusiastically to anyone buying or selling a home.
Sincerely, Rebecca Irwin"
"To Whom it May Concern:
My recommendation of Jane Swibel as a Realtor is built on numerous, positive experiences. Jane is a tireless self-motivated individual who showcases my Victorian house as a warm, elegant home period.
Jane knows the Oak Park-River Forest housing market. She works in this slower economic market with creativity. For example, she suggested my house reflect a more modern decor. I agreed and she signed on as 'general contractor'. She recommended designers, stagers and painters. She solved problems, such as installing a resin trim for a curved wall finishing touch, with her previous homeowners experience. All results were spectacular!
Jane is an asset. She brings an understanding of what a home can provide for a family, much beyond dollars and cents. And then, isn't that what many of us strive for, a safe, loving environment for our families? Jane gets it!"
"To Whom It May Concern:
Jane Swibel is acting as the real estate agent for our Oak Park home, and she has done an extraordinary job helping us prepare the house for sale. We’ve lived there almost 20 years, so that amount of work required was significant, and I don’t think we could have gotten it ready in time without Jane’s help.
She is extremely hands-on, so not only does she give advice and guidance, but she will herself pitch in to help with décor, repairs, staging, landscaping and even helping us find the right people to get all these things done quickly and well. Our entire yard was transformed and the house cleaned top to bottom. Floors were fixed, the front porch repainted and re-staged and the basement made to shine.
I’ve bought and sold quite a few houses over the years (three in Oak Park alone!), and Jane stands out in terms of the overall service and vision she provides. She has my total recommendation.
