"Maureen is the proverbial "unstoppable force" in many ways. She is exceptionally resourceful and has a work ethic that is difficult to fathom. But where she truly excels are the soft skills, in particular communication and building relationships. We were under contract within 6 days for the highest value in our building's history! ... in no small part due to her diligence and skill in reaching out and following-up with every prospective agent and buyer for our condo multiple times and within hours.

Overall, Maureen has been a valued guide in the sale of our home and as we have looked for a new home in Lincoln Park. And we are fortunate for it."


"I am 64 years old, have sold and bought many times throughout my life, I have never had a realtor as impressive as Maureen Mobarak. She is very knowledgeable, and has stellar marketing skills. She works tirelessly to stage her properties, and expose her listings in a timely manner. Maureen has been remarkable, aggressively helping me in a quiet and responsible manner, while setting up realistic expectations, listening very carefully to my expectations, and to those interested in my property. Her follow up is timely, and her interest in her clients, and potential buyers, is warm and genuine. My home was under contract in about two weeks, and is due to close in a month. I would not hesitate to recommend Maureen to both a buyer and a seller."



"Maureen is a spectacular agent. She works like a dog to find you the right home or to sell your home. There is no "quit" in her and she has a knack for overcoming any obstacles in her way or for finding a middle ground during a tough negotiation. My wife and I are so happy to be working with Maureen."


"Maureen went above and beyond on many occasions. She was instrumental in getting my condo ready to go on the market. Due to her excellent marketing, there has been a lot of interest and Maureen has made herself available at any time of day or evening for showings and potential buyers. In the meantime, she helped us find the perfect new home and negotiate the best deal in a multiple offer situation without overpaying. She followed up at every turn to keep the listing agent and sellers happy with how things were moving along. We couldn't be happier to be working with Maureen!"


"I first met Maureen at an open house. I stopped into while walking around the neighborhood and was immediately drawn to her warm, personable demeanor and her professionalism.
Maureen was the first person I called when we happened to walk by a home we were interested in viewing. Maureen is a fair and effective negotiator, resulting in us purchasing our dream home at a great price. Maureen worked well with the listing agent and went above and beyond every step of the way, including making a point to meet the appraiser, attend the inspection and others we requested to assess the property.

We also listed our previous house with Maureen, and she went above and beyond to help us sell our home with impressive results. From her recommendation on pricing, to her market knowledge and marketing, to the staging of our home, Maureen was best in class. She hosted the open houses and had beautiful, compelling marketing materials for potential buyers.

She was instrumental in helping to arrange repairmen, painters and cleaners as needed throughout the listing days. We had multiple offers on our home, and it sold for above our asking price in 21 days!

Maureen made the selling and buying of our homes as stress free as it could be. Huge to me is that she was accessible and responsive during what is often a time sensitive process. I should also mention as an added example of how Maureen was there for us every step of the way-- she brought us lunch and dinner on our closing/moving day, which was infinitely appreciated given the hectic nature of moving. We consider ourselves fortunate to have met her and would highly recommend Maureen to anyone bu"

"I was so fortunate to have worked with Maureen during my apartment hunt. I was searching remotely for my first apartment, and she went above and beyond to ensure that I was well informed before I made a decision. Despite my not being in Chicago, Maureen sent videos, photos, and floor plans of every single unit and building I was interested in, along with a spreadsheet full of information. She was organized and thoughtful, I could not have imagined a better agent to work with. I will most definitely be referring all friends and colleagues to Maureen, and when I am ready to buy, I Iook forward to working with her again."



"I was very fortunate to have worked with Maureen when looking for a home for my family. She was incredibly knowledgable, organized and diligent, making sure all of our needs were met. She previewed homes for us and only showed us ones that met our specific needs. She negotiated an offer in a bidding situation that secured the home for us. When the inspection report was less than favorable, she immediately found 3 more homes for us to see the same morning. Maureen again negotiated a second successful offer in which we closed within 20 days! Maureen went above and beyond in assisting us in many ways throughout the process including having my girls' bedrooms painted prior to closing. I cannot image a more thoughtful, hard working, or efficient agent to work with. We look forward to working with Maureen again and are referring her to our family and friends!"



"We utilized Maureen's services to purchase a single-family home in Chicago. Due to special circumstances, we needed to find a home in a specific area with specific characteristics and close in a very short period of time. Maureen's knowledge of the market in the area we desired was extensive, and she showed us only properties that fit our requirements. Her responsive actions and professional manner allowed us to quickly and efficiently find a home. Maureen provided expert comps for us, and her solid advice made the buying and negotiating phase quite smooth. Her network of attorneys, home inspectors, painters, and other professionals made all aspects of the transaction easy and efficient. We have been in our new home for several months now and couldn't be happier."



"Maureen was very helpful and responsive during our apartment search. She even took the time to meet us at her office when we received the lease to walk us through any questions we had. I would definitely recommend family and friends to Maureen if they are looking to rent or buy a home in Chicago!"


"Great experience with Maureen. She knew exactly what needed to be done to get our home sold, and understood exactly what we were looking for in a new one. She is professional, courteous, thoughtful, and knowledgable; a true expert in the field. She helped facilitate some of the things needing improvement with our home, prior to the sale, and had a list of contractors she trusted, which made the process much easier. All of them were reliable, and professional. My wife and I have been beyond impressed as she guided us every step of the way. She took the time to talk us through both the buy and sell processes and listen to our thoughts and concerns when they arose. Not only that, but we were very happy with the amount we made on the sale thanks to her!"



"I had such a wonderful experience working with Maureen. She knows the Chicago real estate landscape incredibly well. Her knowledge coupled with her thoughtfulness, organization and communication made the entire apt-hunting experience very easy. I will most definitely be working with Maureen in the future as I hunt for new apartments and eventually homes."

"My husband and I recently started our journey toward buying a home. Being first time buyers, we were pretty clueless going into the process. Maureen has been incredibly informative, helpful and patient despite our numerous emails and countless questions, always responding to us within an hour or two, if not immediately. We cannot imagine anyone else being so knowledgable and professional, yet kind and down to earth at the same time. We are both extremely excited to be working with Maureen, and feel as though we are truly in the best hands as we begin to look for a new place to call home."



"I was looking to rent one of my apartments, and Maureen helped me find a tenant and secure a signed lease within just 6 days of listing the apartment. She went above and beyond at the showings, and I have no doubt it was because of her that we were able to complete this process so quickly. I was so impressed with her market knowledge, service and professionalism that I am now working with Maureen again to find an investment property to purchase as well as sell another home I am rehabbing! I feel so fortunate to have found such a hardworking & kind agent and will be referring Maureen to my colleagues and family."
