"We are so grateful to Katie for guiding us to our forever home. She makes you feel taken care of throughout the home buying process, providing honest counsel and smart neighborhood insights. She’s super responsive and a great listener - which is important as sometimes you just need to think out loud! We never felt rushed or pressured. She is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients. Making such a massive life decision is stressful - we felt much more confident as part of Team Katie!"



"We were introduced to Katie by a family friend. We had a preliminary conversation about area, what we were looking for, schools and child care, budget, and more. From this one conversation, she helped us narrow our scope and set up our first visit to the area. The night before we were to tour homes with Katie, we saw a newly listed house to ask Katie about during our time together. On the morning of our tours, one house came off the list to visit and, unbeknownst to us, she had already replaced it with this newly listed house. She was that aware of our taste and interests.

We went on the site visit and had an interest in two homes. She was so patient and provided such great counsel to us as we worked through which home to bid on and pricing. Katie's market knowledge was a tremendous benefit to us throughout the entire process. I firmly believe that without Katie's input, we would never have bid on what is now our forever home.

Beyond Katie's awareness of the market, Katie is invaluable in her knowledge of schools, neighborhoods, the park district, and neighbors. She introduced us to people on our block prior to us even owning the home so that we could ask questions, feel more knowledgeable about the area, and begin making new connections.

She genuinely cares about helping her clients even after the home has been purchased. I cannot say enough good things about Katie as a realtor and as a person."



"We used Katie to buy our first condo five years ago and again this year to buy a new home and sell our condo-we wouldn't think of working with anyone else. She has great market knowledge and experience that helped us to narrow our search and was always available to answer the (many) questions we had. When difficult situations arose, we could count on her to fight for us and at the same time keep the situation in perspective. We have not hesitated to recommend her to friends and will continue to do so!"



"My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Katie as our real estate agent.

We executed our purchase remotely and with limited market knowledge. Katie could not have been more helpful throughout the process and was exceptional at doing all of the little things to get the sale across the finish line while we were 1000 miles away.

She has our highest recommendation"



"We were so incredibly happy working with Katie to purchase our new home. Katie listened to our needs and spent a long day showing us properties that could work. We found the right house for us on day one. Katie has great knowledge of the Chicago and north shore markets and was able to point us in the right direction at just the right time. She took the time to get to know both myself and my husband and was with us every step of the way through the search, inspections, and negotiations, always on top of communication with all parties involved. Thanks to Katie we got the right house for us at a great price. We highly recommend Katie, and although we have no plans on going anywhere soon, if we did, we would use her again no questions asked!"



"We had a great experience working with Katie on our move from the city to the suburbs.

"Katie helped me find my very first apartment in the city 10 years ago. I was so impressed with her back then that she was my only choice when it came to buying a new home and selling our old one. Katie sold our house in under two weeks and found us a new one just as fast. Katie is the only person I will ever call for all my real estate needs."

Her communications were always professional, assertive and timely. She exceeded our expectations and made the process as smooth as possible. We would definitely recommend her to friends."



"We live abroad and were not present at the sale of our unit in Chicago. Katie was our eyes and ears in Chicago. Her knowledge about the market and neighbourhood was invaluable, and her advice regarding the pricing was right on. She was amazing in orchestrating everything that needed to be done, to get our unit ready for sale. She found and managed the right people to get our unit in great shape, from handyman and painters, to staging companies, photographers and lawyers .She walked us through inspection and handled all the negotiations masterfully. The sale went by very smoothly without us being there. We are very grateful to Katie for getting us through this whole process without any stress."



"Katie is absolutely delightful as a partner in a real estate search. She assisted us on the buy side twice and on the sell side, too. In both instances, she was patient, thorough, and helpful beyond measure. She helped with combing the markets, finding comps, asking smart questions during walkthroughs and giving honest feedback about properties. Once we found a property we loved, she helped us with every step of the negotiation all the way through having the keys in hand.

You should work with Katie. You will be profoundly grateful that you did."

It was evident that she always had our best interest in mind and was keen on making sure that we were emotionally ready to move forward with our purchase. Additionally, she has a lot of experience selling in the northern suburbs of Chicago, so she provided a wealth of information on neighborhoods, commuting, schools/day cares, etc. We would work with her again in the future and would recommend her to any of our friends or family."

"Katie is absolutely amazing!! We just completed our third real estate transaction with her and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. We've recommended her to many friends who also loved working with her. Katie is one of the most hard working people we've ever met, and she gives 110% to everything she does. We always felt like we were in great hands and she was always accessible, just a text or phone call away. She's incredible at her job, and made the entire process of buying and selling easy for us. We absolutely loved working with her, and can't recommend her enough!"



"Our home-buying experience this past year was not at all what we expected it to be, but Katie made it better at every turn. She was a close ally and an excellent advisor, and she was both an aggressive negotiator, but had a good sense of when to pull us back, too. We ended up with the best house!

"My wife Anissa and I have now worked with Katie twice to sell homes in the past three years, and without a doubt we would use her again. She takes the guess work out of all the steps to move quickly while keeping her clients' best interests in mind. She consistently and clearly communicates and translates what is happening - peace of mind is certainly at a premium in working with Katie. And, Katie has a tremendous sense of humor. She knows well when to encourage her clients to laugh off the small stuff. Highly recommended, as we have already done for other friends and colleagues."

"Helped expedite search for new home and narrow our search down based on core concerns. Handled every aspect of the process (provided inspection, attorney, etc.). Extremely responsive from beginning to close. Found an excellent deal on a beautiful Lakeview condo for my first home--thank you Katie!!"



"Katie completely changed the way I viewed both buying and selling a property. I always assumed it was suppose to be a stressful and murky process but Katie made the sales process for my property a complete pleasure. She talked me through the market and help me set a price I was happy with, then sold my place in 60 days for what I was asking. She had a network of professionals I could use to prep the property, in addition to incredible lawyer that explained and organized my sale with no stress. I would recommend Katie to anyone who is buying or selling in the Chicago market. Simple put Katie was the best to work with and made the process stress free."



"Katie was so patient with us, as we started our search looking generally on the North Shore but had limited knowledge of the area. She took the time to show us around different communities, letting us know where we would find neighborhoods that had what we were looking for (near the train, lots of kids). Katie was patient with us over our 6 month search, took the time to send me listings she thought would appeal to us, and found us our perfect place by working her network to ensure we could see the listing BEFORE it went on the market. Katie found us the perfect home in the right community, was incredibly responsive during the process to close and has also provided us with numerous recommendations to get us settled in our new community."
