"Lindsey Paulus served our needs as sellers in a very professional and personal way. She prepared comps which enabled us to set a price that was attractive to buyers and eventually ended up in a quick sale with multiple offers. Throughout the sale process she communicated with us on every event pertinent to our listing, showings and sale. She was always available by phone, email or text. Lindsey is an energetic person with a positive outlook and we were quite happy to work with her."

"Lindsey handled the sale of my condo with expertise and professionalism. After initially contacting her to handle the listing, she managed my sale from start to finish while I was in another state. Lindsey worked with my renter to showcase the optimum qualities of the property and succeeded in getting me a buyer in 3 days! Her ability to keep me informed, conduct a fair price negotiation as well as handle the details needed for a smooth, seamless closing was amazing. It was a pleasure to work with Lindsey."

"I had an unusual situation and Lindsey went above and beyond for me in helping me find and keep my home. She truly cares about the people she works with. She was amazing and if I could give more than 5 stars I would!"

"Lindsey stood with me, through thick and thin, for 2 years. Yes, 2 years! When I started looking for a home, I definitely wasn't sure what I was looking for. We looked in 10+ towns at a wide range of different houses. Lindsey showed her knowledge of the real estate market, and was very responsive and considerate to my needs. Needless to say, she had the patience to deal with my indecisiveness for quite a while. It was her real estate knowledge that helped me narrow my search to find what I truly wanted.

It wasn't until year 2 that I found the place I wanted to call home. Lindsey was still there with her positive attitude when close day finally came. Because of her, I was prepared for exactly what to expect, and close went as smoothly as possible.

Thanks Lindsey for being great!"

"Lindsey was SO helpful throughout the whole buying process. This was my first time buying a place and she was informative the entire time. She was able to answer every question I had and was so kind through the whole thing. If I'm ever in the market again, buying or selling, I'll definitely be going back to her."

"Lindsey was very helpful in every way. she had somebody for everything that needed to be done such as a mortgage broker, lawyer and house inspector. They were all very competent prompt and friendly. Any questions about who to use regarding any work she had references as well.Would definitely use her again."

"I couldn't have ask for a better realtor if I tried. Lindsey was an answer to prayer. I thought trying to find the right place would be all consuming and stressful but Lindsey's very positive, honest nature proved to be what I needed. She was always available for questions and made sure every detail was covered. I am more grateful than she even knows for all her efforts and support during the entire process. Thank you Lindsey."

"I could not be more effusive in my praise of how Lindsey managed my recent purchase in La Grange Park. She is very knowledgeable of the area, and as someone who had only owned condos, she was able to help me identify key points I should be looking for. She is always super responsive, and is a great negotiator. Wonderful experience all around."

"Lindsey is awesome. She consistently went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. She was flexible with her schedule and made time to meet with us on short notice, evenings and weekends. She took the time to learn about our family and what is important to us so that she could tailor our home search. Lindsey helped us in so many ways- finding homes to look at, talking with sellers, talking with the lawyers, negotiating with the sellers, and offering moral support when needed. I would recommend Lindsey without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."

"Lindsey provided the exact approach to the sales process that I was seeking. Always available, professional, even keeled and open to working together to ensure a successful sale. I would recommend Lindsey highly."

"We started our house hunt nearly 6 months prior to moving to the western suburbs of Chicago, and Lindsey was patient and helpful the entire time. She was quick to respond to emails, and even did virtual tours with us as we were across the country. When it came to finding a house when we were finally local, she made sure to show us houses that met our criteria. She ended up getting us a fabulous deal on a beautiful old home in Western Springs. We couldn't be more thrilled with the house, and with Lindsey's unmatched expertise and dedication. We highly recommend her!"

"I was referred to Lindsey by another one of her clients and I am so glad I chose to work with her. I was relocating to the area, had already sold my house, was under a tight deadline and my search criteria presented a bit of a challenge. Lindsey's knowledge of the area and her perspective on the market proved to be invaluable. I asked a ton of questions and she was very good about responding to my texts, emails and messages. When it came time to make an offer and negotiate, she did a comprehensive assessment of its value and got me that price. Lindsey's commitment to finding the right house for me made the process less stressful and I am now a happy home owner. Plus, she's just a really good person. I highly recommend her."

"Lindsey guided us through our successful search for a house in Western Springs. We had no prior relationship with her, she was recommended to us and it was a very fortunate recommendation. Lindsey's approach was personal, dedicated and client-focused. She took the time to get to know us and our preferences. Also, she knows the area and the market in intimate, black-by-block detail. Thus, she was able to direct us to properties and locales that matched our needs and wishes. Plus, she is thorough (thought of everything) responsive (calls and texts promptly answered at all hours) and most of all fun and personable, just a pleasure to spend time with. Highly, highly recommended."

"We contacted Lindsey as first time home buyers and were really grateful that we did. She was excellent from the first phone call to the day of closing. She was prompt and proactive about answering our questions. She efficiently scheduled home showings and helped us with the paperwork. She was always on time for the home showings and always reminded us of deadlines . We were comfortable sharing our religious and cultural specifications about the home we wanted to buy and she accomodated all our requests. She was sincere and extremely thoughtful in helping us find our home.
On the day of closing our sellers asked us how we had contacted her and wished that she was representing them . They also expressed a desire to work with her in the future and I felt that was a well deserved compliment.
We highly recommend Lindsey especially to first time home buyers."

"Lindsey is very detailed oriented and very easy to work with. We have sold and purchased homes with her assistance and expertise. Having her work with us made the transactions run smoothly! She takes the time to really listen to her clients and helps meet their needs whether it be a phone call, email or a stop in! I would highly recommend Lindsey as "our" personal Realtor to our friends and family in a heartbeat! She has a very good understanding of current market trends. She is very knowledgeable."

"Lindsey was great to work with! She kept us grounded and realistic in looking for our first home, yet was able to quickly negotiate a great price in our ideal neighborhood. Lindsey and her team were excellent in their service and the education of home buying. Thank you Lindsey for your exceptional work!"

"As a first time home buyer the process was very daunting but Lindsey made the buying a home fairly stress free. Was always available and was able to answer all of a question or get back to us quickly with an answer. Walked us through step by step so there were no surprises and gave us a list of inspectors and attorneys she has used in the passed not just pushing one on us. Could not have imagined doing this without her. I would highly recommend her."

"Lindsey was the best real estate agent with whom I've ever worked. She was incredibly patient, responsive, thorough and extremely knowledgeable both about the market and the home buying process. I will enlist her services again and will whole-heartedly recommend her to friends."

"Lindsey is a knowledgable and caring go getter who is incredibly kind patient and very passionate about helping her clients find what they're looking for. Our process took quite some timeand our needs very specific, yet Lindsey never gave up on us. We would recommend her first and foremost to anyone.

With great appreciation,

Paul and Nancy"

"Professional and Knowledgeable. Lindsey was the agent for the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home. My house sold faster than I expected and I had to find a new home in very little time. She was professional, helpful and calm while I was terribly stressed. She made the process as painless as possible. I hit numerous issues with the house I was purchasing and she was excellent at talking me through the issues and options at each point. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy."

"Lindsey was very professional and great to work with. She's honest and knowledgeable, thorough and dependable. We had full confidence in her abilities. We highly recommend her!"

"It was a pleasure having Lindsey as our realtor. She was very responsive to our needs and was great at communicating the status of things.

Lindsey did a great job scheduling around our needs and was very willing to accommodate our impromptu requests to see houses.

She would always bring detailed information on the houses we saw that we could take home with us.

She was also very patient with us and showed us many houses over several months.

She always gave her honest opinion on what she thought of a house and would point out flaws that she saw. She never made us feel pressured to make a decision on a house."

"We absolutely loved working with Lindsey! She made the entire process of buying our home seamless. She was quick to answer any questions or requests we had and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. Would highly recommend her!"

"We met Lindsey at an open house in an unfamiliar suburb. Within a few minutes of meeting us, she was hand-drawing a detailed map of the area, and giving out the first of countless gems of advice. We can't praise Lindsey enough. She never once made us feel pressured. She's a straight shooter, and incredibly perceptive. She not only helped us find our dream first home, she gave us fantastic recommendations for a mortgage lender and a home inspector. She has been so welcoming to us, that we think of her not just as a realtor, but a friend. Cheesy, but true."

"We are so lucky to have Lindsey as our agent. She is very knowledgeable about the neighborhood, school quality in the Chicago western suburbs. Lindsey always quickly replies our questions, and if she does not know the answer, she researched it for us. She is also good with price negotiation. She also provided us a list of service providers (i.e., painting, carpet cleaning, plumber). She is a very considerate agent, which is important for us, as a first-time buyer. My wife and I liked Lindsey very much and will definitely recommend her to our friends for house hunting in future. Shuai& Vivien"

"Our experience with Lindsey Paulus was tremendous. She provided my wife and I with concise and clear communication all through the home purchase process and responded to all of our questions immediately. The net result of our collaborative relationship was that we were able to purchase the exact type of home that we desired in the exact neighborhood that best suited our family's needs. Moreover, Lindsey has become a friend and resource as we move our family from Chicago to La Grange Park. Thank you Lindsey! -- Thomas & Keri Bell"

"Lindsey made sure my house would look it’s best before she put it on the market. It sold in 4 days and then she helped me find the perfect condo in the ideal location so I would be close to my family. Lindsey was so easy to talk to and made the whole process so easy for me. She’s awesome!"

"Lindsey helped us sell our house and buy a new one. The process took a long time because of our situation and nothing to do with Lindsey. The entire time Lindsey was positive, helpful, friendly and we had many good laughs with her. I’m happy to have made a friend during the selling and buying process."

"From the first time we met Lindsey at an Open House about five years ago we've been impressed with her professionalism, knowledge, and responsiveness. We considered new homes for a while, and when we were finally ready to kick into gear she helped us find the perfect home for us, listed our home, and guided us through both ends of the buy/sell process. She responded quickly to our questions, made sure we understood our options, and saved us money. She also helped make our moving process more smooth. It’s been a delight to work with her. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, thorough and enjoyable! We highly recommend Lindsey to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area."

"Lindsey Paulus is an exceptional agent. Our house in La Grange was on the market for several months before we hired Lindsey. We took some time to incorporate Lindsey’s suggestions, and once we were back on the market, we had two offers within 5 days. How did she do it? It was Lindsey’s analytical approach to pricing, her eye for staging, as well as an understanding of today’s buyer. Lindsey instinctively knew what and when to communicate to potential buyers and agents. Additionally, her knowledge of the area and high level of professionalism really set her apart. I would strongly recommend Lindsey Paulus to anyone in the area looking for an agent."

"Lindsey was my first realtor for my very first home. She was nothing but the best. She was very committed to me and my home search and was always available for showings, even if they were last minute :) She has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about houses and what to look for. She made my process for buying my first home rewarding. I would recommend her to everyone!"

"Lindsey Paulus was an amazing business person to work with. Her communication was very consistent and excellent throughout the entire process. My husband and I were going through a divorce, she made a most difficult situation very easy between both parties. I was impressed with Lindsey’s promptness on all issues in regards to the sale of our home. Best in class and would recommend her to anyone. She really was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable in her field. Again, amazing and on point!"

"Lindsey Paulus is everything you could want in a realtor: Professional, Knowledgeable, Smart, Responsive, and, on top of all that, FUN!!! Honestly, it was amazing to watch Lindsey manage the home buying process for us. She has a real knack for understanding her clients. She kept our family informed and focused on the things that matter most. Lindsey made us feel like we were her only client - even during the very busy Spring market. If you are wondering who to call to help you find the best home for your family, our family insistently says: “Call Lindsey”. In our experience, Lindsey Paulus is one of the very best realtors in the greater La Grange area."

"In the past my wife and I have bought and sold various properties in NY. Lindsey recently helped us to re-locate to La Grange. Her knowledge of the area, listening skills, responsiveness, and overall level of concern for us as her client could not have been any better. She understood our specific concerns and with laser focus directed us to look at homes that would only fall into the parameters for our specific search.
Lindsey is the benchmark for all realtors to aspire to."

"Lindsey helped us sell our house in La Grange and was so easy to work with. She is smart and knows the area inside & out. She went above and beyond to make the experience smooth and easy for us."

"Lindsey was the listing agent for a home we were interested in and we hit it off quick. It was a chance meet and boy are we glad we chose her as our agent. She is very knowledgeable about the market and helped us choose a dream home. Looking at her reviews, I am just floored on how she is able to offer the same experience to all her clients! She is very attentive and offered her honest opinion on the homes we visited over several weeks. She always got back to us in a timely fashion and was very patient with all of our concerns. We never felt any pressure from her to settle and knew she wanted us to be completely satisfied with our choice. Right after the closing, she started working on renting out our condo in Oak Park. She found a great tenant in less than 2 months. She is a powerhouse and definitely recommend her to anyone for their real estate needs. We will definitely call on Lindsey in the future."

"Working with Lindsey helped to make what could have otherwise been a very stressful and not-so-enjoyable process, dare I say, fun. Lindsey's dedication to helping you through the buying process is nothing short of amazing. While it may sound cliche, she truly makes you feel as though you are the only client she is working with. She is never more than a phone call, text message, or email away from answering any and all questions you may have.
I'm not sure when she finds to sleep, or be a mother/spouse to her family as it seems as though she is always working...on your behalf. Being first-time home buyers, my wife and I were very green when it came to the intricacies of looking for and then deciding to purchase a home. With all of Lindsey's help, the process was quite painless and we walked away with a great deal of knowledge for when the next purchase comes along. While my review is confined to 5 stars, I would give her 10 without bating an eye."

"Lindsey is great. She gives good advice, is very professional and stays on top of the market. I liked that when we looked at properties, she gave her honest opinion. I recommend her highly."

"Lindsey always made us feel like we were her only clients (or at least her most important ones). She is knowledgeable, creative, and quick to respond. If we choose to move again, we'll call Lindsey."

"Lindsey's communication is what I was most impressed with. She always returns calls, follows up with emails and or voice mails in a very short period of time. Lindsey's Neighborhood knowledge is exceptional. She really knows the marketplace. Lindsey not just answers questions but she will back up her answers with research on whatever the issue."

"Lindsey is everything we want in a real estate professional. She is incredibly creative, listens well, beyond responsive and a joy to work with. Can't wait to work with her again. She's just excellent."

"Lindsey worked with us as our Seller's as well as our Buyer's Agent. We cannot say say enough about the positive experience we had with Lindsey throughout the entire process! Lindsey was extremely professional, organized, detail oriented, thorough and patient with us until we sold our last house and found and purchased the home of our dreams! She took what could have been an extremely stressful scenario and guided us through the entire process in such a way that my wife and I were able to relax and comfortably leave the details to her. We would highly recommend Lindsey for any of your real estate needs! Thank you Lindsey!"

"Purchase from a long distance that Lindsey made easy and worked to make the transaction as simple as possible. Easy daily communication during the process. A great experience."

"We were extremely happy working with Lindsey! She worked diligently to find the house and lot we wanted and was helpful, fair and professional to us and the seller-whom did not have representation. She was always available to talk to to us or meet with us."

"We were referred to Lindsey by a neighbor. We had decided to downsize and she guided us through both the selling of our home (after owning for 28+ years and buying our townhome. She was very responsive and patient with us. She made what I thought would be a very stressful situation much easier for us. I would highly recommend Lindsey!"

"We were referred to Lindsey by a friend. She was incredible. She made our home buying experience fun and went out of her way to work with us. She even discussed details on holidays and evenings. Bottom line, we'd recommend her to anyone...the best!"

"Lindsey got back to me immediately with all of my questions and was willing to go the extra mile on all counts--arranging showings, gathering facts and information, and offering assistance on various resources, including legal and financial expertise and moving and home improvement vendors. Could not ask for a better real estate agent."

"We went into the moving process with a limited time to buy and sell. Lindsey was able to do both within 3 months! She priced our home competitively, marketed our home extensively and creatively to those that had interest in what our home had to offer, and communicated with us after each and every showing giving us the necessary feedback we wanted. She listens to your needs and truly follows through with everything you ask. She was able to make our moving experience delightful. We highly recommending her!"
