Clients are saying:

"My husband and I relocated to the Chicago area from southern Missouri in late Summer 2016. We were both new to the area and first time home buyers, so we needed a realtor we could trust and who was patient to walk us through all the steps. Lauren Shell helped us navigate a stressful buying process and she was by far the least stressful and most helpful part of the experience. Lauren went above and beyond by attending our inspection in our place, and advocating on our behalf wherever necessary with our lender, lawyer, and other parties. She was extremely responsive and supportive throughout the entire process by answering my texts, emails, and phone calls at virtually all hours and days of the week. I also really appreciated Lauren's knowledge and recommendations about local restaurants. Every place we have tried on her recommendation has been stellar!"
