Quote to Live By

The platinum rule – “treat others how THEY want to be treated.” (Tristen’s Father)

My boyfriend and I were looking to move to a new condo in the South Loop, in the midst of the pandemic. We worked with Vanessa K and she was really great at giving and showing us options both of the condo and apartment complex side. With her expertise, we actually found an apartment complex that was the perfect fit despite us originally thinking we would prefer a condo. She was always super quick to respond and knew the right questions to ask the landlords and often times ones we didn't even think of. We couldn't recommend her enough!
South Loop
Kate is a very knowledgeable agent and did a great job helping me find a place to rent. She had my best interest in mind and I could trust her to give me good advice. She has a great sense of what a good deal is and stays up to date on the rental market. I HIGHLY recommend Kate for anyone that is searching for the perfect place to rent!
Roscoe Village
I had Lynn Kummerer who is a phenomenal realtor. She is helpful, available, and patient. She is willing to run searches and schedule viewings on short notice. If you need a realtor, I strongly recommend Lynn.
Mollie Posch helped me and my husband get our first home. She did a wonderful job. She exceeded our expectations and we absolutely love our new home. Thank you!
"Riely represented me on a condo purchase in the Gold Coast. He was incredibly thoughtful and knowledgable about the process and also unfailingly responsive (as a first time buyer I needed a fair amount of guidance and information). Riely's professionalism was especially on display at my closing  when the seller's agent surprised us with some extremely unethical curve balls in the purchase. It was stressful and upsetting but Riely kept his cool the entire time, handled it like a true pro, and made sure I left the closing table taken care of. I would use him again without hesitation and recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Chicago."

"Casey was so helpful in finding my husband and I a new home! She has great knowledge of the city and knew what areas would fit what we were looking for. She really knew how to make the process fun and so much less stressful for us. We will certainly use Casey again and I will be recommending her to  all my friends!"
