"Katie was phenomenal though-out the entire home buying experience. Not only was she was always available to show properties, but she helped answer all of my questions as a first time home buyer."
"When we relocated from the West Coast, were first time home buyers, & didn't know anything about the Chicago market, Katie found us the perfect place. When we were ready to relocate a few years later with a growing family, we didn't hesitate to reach back out to Katie. Within 8 days we accepted an offer & she helped us get through closing with no issue. She's the best!"
"Don't you have more STARS?? I need many more Stars!! Katie is exceptional in every way.... professionalism, creativity, knowledge, care, service, resourcefulness. I am a licensed REALTOR and would never hire anyone but Katie in Illinois."
"Katie and I worked really good together."
"Katie did a great job. This is my third cycle renting with her and also the third time the first or second tenant to see the property leased it."
"Katie was a great agent. She has now helped us purchase and sell our first home. As "first-timers" for both experiences, she was patient and always took the time to answer our questions. She knows the market well and we'd highly recommend her to anyone that's looking for a real estate agent."
"Working with Katie is a true joy! As a first time home buyer, her knowledge and expertise were priceless as I navigated this intimidating process. Katie's passion for supporting individuals in the home buying process shines through every step of the way, from initial discussions about one's dream home to negotiating. She has her clients best interest in mind above all else. I could not recommend a real estate professional more! Working with Katie made what could have been a very overwhelming process a wonderful experience!"
"Katie was helpful listing, showing, selling, and then finding us a new home. Katie was extremely patient with me during what could have been a very stressful situation. All around I grade Katie an A+."
"Katie was wonderful! I could not imagine anyone better. She took care of every detail and made the process easy! She really cares about what she does and is extremely knowledgeable. I have worked with quite a few Realtors over the years and there is no one like Katie!"
"I have used Katie for three real estate transactions in the last ten years. She is very knowledgeable about the market, easily accessible and responsive, and a great personality to work with. With both transactions, we were extremely happy with the selling and purchase price of the properties. With the last property, she has an offer for us before the property went to print. We decided to gamble and left it on the market and received 4 more offers in that first week. The last one that we accepted was $40k more than the first - all due to Katie. I would highly recommend using Katie for a real estate agent."
"Katie was our realtor for a home sale and purchase in October 2016. She is an excellent listener who worked to find the perfect match for our needs when even we weren't sure what those were. After the contract for the home we were selling was executed, the deal for the home we were purchasing fell through. Katie jumped into action and helped us find a better home with the same closing date as our first transaction. She was with us every step of the way and was always upbeat and available. Katie is knowledgeable, a consummate professional and extremely patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home!"
"I've worked with Kate a couple of times purchasing my condo along with my mother's condo. Katie is very knowledgeable, quick to respond, organized, patient as well as a very pleasant person with which to work. She's good at facilitating other referrals as well as she was instrumental in referring me to a mortgage broker that I've used on several occasions as well."
"Katie could not have been easier to work with. She was knowledgeable about the different Chicago neighborhoods and proactive in finding great listings and setting up appointments with the seller. If I had a question, she would respond immediately. I will definitely be using her again in the future and would recommend her to friends and family."
"My husband and I worked with Katie on the purchase of our first home! She was absolutely wonderful to work with. We were very naive to the home buying process, but Katie helped us every step of the way. She was also so knowledgeable about the various Chicago neighborhoods, streets and buildings. Katie helped us find the perfect townhouse in Wrigleyville. Not only was the location great, but it had everything we wanted, and more! Being first time homebuyers, we were pretty stressed about the whole closing process, but she really put us as ease. Lastly, Katie is super responsive and answered all of our questions in a timely manner, which is critical in the world of home buying. Her warmth, expertise and professionalism makes her such a joy to work with!

"We found Katie through the recommendation of friends whom she helped purchase their home, so we had already known we'd be in good hands. I love that she is so very responsive to email or text or phone calls. She helped us purchase our first home and was very patient when we kept changing our mind. Initially, we were looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in Chicago. We didn't have a car then, so she would pick us up at home and then take us to see houses and then drop us off back home. Then we halted all searching for about a year because we were expecting our second child. She never complained. When we were ready again, we resumed searching this time for a 3 bedroom home in Naperville. She knew well what we were after, and so it actually didn't take long at all to find our home. She'd already worked with our lawyer and mortgage broker so between the 3 of them, the process was quite easy and not stressful in the least. The home she helped us purchase is where we live today! Right now she's helping us as we look to upgrade to a bigger home. She knows that we have no intention to purchase until next year, when I'm back out to work after pregnancy, but she is still very willing and happy to trek out to Naperville to show us homes around here. I'm always happy to work with Katie."
"Katie was such a courteous, responsive and reliable professional to work with. She literally made our listing and sale process both painless and stress free. Her marketing skills were also on point. We will definitely be working with Katie again in the future!"
"Katie was great to work with! Very knowledgeable of the market and made listing and selling our place very easy for us. We were able to sign most documents securely online, which saved us a lot if running around. We also really appreciated that she does all showings herself and was able to give us helpful feedback on how interested the buyers were. She knows the city very well and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"I worked with Katie about three years ago. She helped me buy my first condo. I was not very knowledgeable about the process of purchasing a home, but Katie made things very smooth and simple. She took initiative and helped me with coordinating with all involved parties, including my attorney, the inspector, the seller, and the bank. Katie demonstrated a lot of expertise in the field and was always able to answer my questions. She was also extremely responsive. What I especially liked about Katie was her professionalism and level of customer service. She was not at all "salesy" and treated everyone in a very genuine, respectful manner. It is very clear that she has her clients' best interest in mind. I definitely recommend Katie, and I will certainly be contacting her in the future for any real estate-related services."
"I have worked with Katie several times to buy, sell and rent property and she has been INCREDIBLE to say the very least. Honestly, that word doesn't even do her justice. She is super responsive, knowledgeable, supportive, and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. 6 out of 5 stars!"
"Working with Katie was wonderful. She is professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. She pays attention to details, has a steel-trap memory, and offers expert insight. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. If you are looking for the best, then you need to with Katie Mischka Cibulsky."
"Katie helped my husband and I find our first home. We were so impressed with her work that we have already recommended her to several people! First, we really appreciated how communicative Katie is. She replied to emails, texts, and phone calls swiftly. If we contacted her about seeing a listing, she responded immediately and kept us in the loop regarding her communication with the seller's agent to set up a showing. Her turnaround time is amazing! We had an offer accepted on one house that we later withdrew from after the inspection; still, in a matter of hours, Katie showed us the house and drew up the contract. Katie's professional expertise is what sets her apart. She knows the Chicago area well, and her knowledge of the market helped us put together strong bids and helped guide us toward a home that we love. Without her guidance, the home buying process would have been terrible, but Katie remained a positive, calming, and knowledgeable source throughout. Throughout the process, Katie reassured us that the right home would come to us. Our initial (low) bid on our now-home was rejected, but when the other offer fell through, Katie let us know before it went to market and we were able to snatch it back up. Being new to the process, it meant a lot to us to have Katie guiding us through the steps to closing. Oh, and I should mention that in addition to being professional, Katie is incredibly patient! She showed us more than thirty places before we landed our dream home. We can't recommend Katie enough."
"As first-time homebuyers, Katie was a dream come true. She is a consummate professional: knowledgable, responsive, practical. She went above-and-beyond to help us find the right home. Katie cheerfully took us to see many, many listings and gave us her honest feedback on each. She was available at any time, day or night, to explain the process and calm our jitters. You could not ask for a more committed realtor. We liked her so much that we recommended her to my mom for her condo purchase!"
"I am pleased that I had the pleasure of working with Katie Mischka on the sale of my home in Chicago. From the outset, Katie was professional, attentive, and dependable. She was always willing to answer my questions with a prompt reply. Selling a home can be stressful and having Katie on your side makes it less so. If only I had not made a long-distance relocation, I would not hesitate to call upon Katie's services again in the future. Without reservation, I recommend Katie as a highly qualified and competent professional in her field!"
