"Kathy is an absolutely fantastic realtor and mentor! Her guidance and knowledge of the town and market were key to the quick and efficient sale of our home. Kathy's keen attention to detail and her remarkable ability to market this house expertly led us to a very successful sale with a profit greatly exceeding our expectations.

The way she was able to stage our house for photographs both online and in paper brochures was masterful. We couldn't have imagined a better eye for placement of furniture and decor.

Her personal touch on the entire process made the entire ordeal painless and very enjoyable. To note, Kathy's availability and proactive nature was second to none. Her response to all things involved with closing was impeccable!

It was a great experience to work with Kathy and I will always recommend her to anyone in know. I learn so much from her and will use this knowledge for the rest of my life.

Mike Shaver."



"This is the second home we have bought while using Kathy as our real estate agent. She is the best there is!!! She was patient with us and helped us find a home that was within our budget as well as in a great school district for our Grandchildren. We couldn't be happier."



"I am a first time landlord, I had no idea of how complex leasing could be. Kathy took charge of everything from inspecting and recommending upgrades to the property, postings to the real estate cloud, recommending the most qualified applicants, being the liaison between the renter and myself.
Kathy demonstrated her abilities to the max, I could not have asked for a better person to represent me.
I would recommend Kathy for all your real estate needs"

"I've bought and sold 8 different properties and the last two were with Kathy as our realtor. These were the best and it's all because of her.. She handles every detail and leaves nothing to chance. If I were to do this again there's no question that I'll be calling her."


"Kathy did an outstanding job marketing our lake house. The listing presentation generated lots of interest, resulting in many showings and multiple offers. After the house was under contract Kathy followed through on all of the details needed to complete the sale. She effectively represented us in the negotiations. We listed the house with Kathy because we had such a positive experience when she helped us purchase our house 8 years ago."



"Both my wife and I are comfortable in working with Kathy. She is very resourceful, passionate and professional. We love her and trust her 100% as she would provide unbiased assessment of a property."


"We were first time homebuyers and had zero knowledge of the entire process. Kathy helped us understand all the moving parts required to purchase a home, and the good and not so good areas to look. She was always available to answer questions, returning our calls or emails normally within minutes. By the end of the process we felt like she was a member of my family. We never felt rushed or pressured into anything. We have the house we wanted because of Kathy and plan on using her for all our future home purchases/sales."

"Kathy sold our Gurnee home recently. Her integrity, honesty, and knowledge were very impressive. She staged our home and used quite a few of her own decorations to make our home pop. Her communication skills are excellent. She always responded to us promptly and worked proactively to get our home sold quickly. I highly recommend Kathy!"

"Kathy Morrissey is great! She knew when I was getting overwhelmed. She expressed her opinion on the marketplace, but didn't push when I felt differently.. For example, when I was willing to "update" or when I thought the house was OK as it is. She's a very good realtor that learns her seller's personality and wishes. I would definitely recommend her to any other seller."

She was extremely knowledgeable and really attentive every time we phoned her! Absolutely fantastic ! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell"



"Kathy helped me find a new home on our first day looking. The third house to be exact. Kathy listened to what i was looking for and found it.
This is the second time I worked with Kathy. She sold my house and business too.
It was a difficult property with 21 acres and a dog and cat boarding business. Closing date was within 11 months. Amazing.
Kathy keeps up with every detail, every step of the way."

"Kathy is an agent you really want to have, who truly cares about her client. She gave me thoughtful and analytic advice on purchase and sale prices, and guided me through whole processes. She always responds my questions quickly, and stands by me when issue came up. I am very grateful to have her being my agent twice."



"My husband and I are first time homebuyers. We literally have no idea what we are doing. We stumbled across Kathy at an open house and when we got back to our car we both said, "I think we found our agent!" She called the next day and spent an hour on the phone guiding us through a lot of information. I am floored by how generous she is with her time. She is very knowledgeable and I know she will guide us to a successful first purchase!"


"Thank you Kathy Morrissey and @properties for such an amazing experience buying/selling my home. I was dreading this process for years, thinking it would be too stressful and overwhelming. Working with Kathy made this process for us meaningful. Kathy went above and beyond for my family making sure we were as comfortable with the presentation of our home and making sure we understood every step of the process fully. She was there to answer our 100 plus questions every time we called, and made us very comfortable with the whole scary process....(as we loved our home very much). This was a very exciting/scary process for our family and we are now in our new home, very happy! I’m very grateful Kathy was our Realtor. Thank you for your great advice and your reliability. You make us look back at our move as a fun and enjoyable process! We also Thank you for STILL checking up on how we are doing in our new home. We appreciate working with you and @properties.

Every time we needed questions answered or tasks completed, she quickly responded and went above and beyond our expectations. She helped stage our home with her knowledge and belongings, as well.

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Kathy as we made a dream a reality. Our dream was to move to a lake home and we needed to sell our place in Gurnee. Kathy was instrumental as a realtor and as a consultant to get the place sold.She helped stage the home, making useful suggestions and providing a lot of good insight and market analysis. In the course of being a professional, she became a trusted advisor and friend."


"I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you who helped my wife and I close on this townhouse in such an abbreviated time frame. We truly appreciate all the hard work and expertise. If any of my friends or family decide to move to this area I will recommend each and every one of you. Thank you again."

"She was always so patient with us. She helped us minimize our search to what we were looking for! She always kept her promise and when she said she was going to do something she did it. She also always made herself available. She also went above and beyond after we purchased our home. She gave us a welcome home card with a gift card to a local place in Grayslake. If someone was looking to purchase a house, I will refer them to Kathy."


"Kathy puts part of herself in each sale."


"Three days after the house went under contract, the neighborhood was hit by a tornado & I was out of town. Kathy helped clearing down trees and cleaning up the property til I got home a few days later. She went above and beyond as an agent ever could do. She was outstanding throughout the whole process of selling my house."


"Kathy- We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for our family! From getting our house sold, getting what we wanted for it and getting the date we needed to buying us our Lovin' Oven cake for Jared's commissioning! You have been wonderful in walking us through this whole process and we appreciate your going to bat for us. We have felt blessed by just getting to know you! Take care & thanks again!"


"Was fairly happy with past realtors used, “ then I worked with Kathy. She surpassed all previous experiences."



"Kathleen was flexible and understanding of my fluid schedule. Many times I had to postpone or ask for last minute showings. Kathleen never appeared to be inconvenienced and really worked to accommodate my schedule and needs. From the start of the home buying process I felt and stated I did not have a style. However, Kathleen quickly recognized I did. I never felt pressured in any way and (though I plan for this to be my last move) I would work with Kathleen again.SB Grayslake"


"Buying / selling has been stressful at time but I always knew you were very knowledgeable and behind me on everything. It really was busy and fast paced but you were ready for anything. I really appreciate it."
