Testimonials

Alison France, Agent

"I was left with the task of selling my parents house in Chicago which living in St. Charles had no knowledge of the market or where to even start. I met Alison through an exercise studio in Geneva and asked for some advice. She said she would be happy to meet with my Mom and see her home in Chicago. I thought that maybe the logistics of her being a realtor in the Fox Valley and listing a home in the city would be problematic. However I had no idea how powerful the MLS was. Alison had one weekend open house and the house sold within 10 days for pretty much what we were asking. I was blown away by her professionalism and expertise. I would highly recommend Alison!"

Chris Hansen, Agent

"Chris was my agent in the purchase of my townhome and I couldn't have picked a better agent. He was focused on my needs in the purchase, he was always available to answer questions and I trusted his knowledge in helping me throughout the entire process from the search and onto the negotiation of my purchase. His experience was also appreciated when I needed recommendations for lenders, and appraiser names. After the closing of the townhome he followed through to make sure I was happy with my choice and that meant a lot to me. I highly recommend Chris as an agent!"

Dale Grischow, Agent

"Dale is a realtor that deals in reality. What I mean is that he knows as a seller, you might have unrealistic expectations for what your home is worth. He recognizes pride of ownership but brings practical knowledge of the market to help you meet market expectations and help the seller understand why he suggests the listing price. He can also help you realize better bang for your buck. For example, he might not only tell you that you need paint, carpet, or tile, but also has people in those trades that trusts him enough to offer their services with very good terms for the seller so that everyone is satisfied. I would suggest to anyone selling a property to talk to Dale."

Dorothy Kolschowsky, Agent

"Dorothy is the best Real Estate Agent I have ever had! I had purchased 2 homes in California before moving to the Chicagoland area; both with different agents. Dorothy is the best! I have never lived in this area before. Dorothy went above and beyond to teach me about the Illinois market, the community, the schools, restaurants, etc... Her negotiation skills are super advanced. I truly believe I got the best deal given the current state of the market. Dorothy applies no pressure, and stuck with me even though it took me over 5 months to find the perfect home!! She is truly a pleasure to work with and she has my highest recommendation!"

Felicia Fiorito, Kathy Brothers Team

"As a first time home buyer the process can be somewhat intimidating! Luckily, we were able to work with a kind and caring professional like Felicia. Her expertise in the market allowed me to completely trust Felicia when finding a home that would fit my family's needs. She was very knowledgeable of the area we were looking for and advised us when making offers that would work to our advantage. Felicia was very prompt and thorough when answering all of our questions and concerns. She made this experience as smooth as possible. We will definitely use Felicia and her team for all of our future real estate needs. We are forever grateful that Felicia was able to help us find our dream home just in time for our new arrival!"

Gina Swanson, Agent

"I met Gina when my wife and I decided to buy a house. She made the process very easy for us. She was very organized. When I told her what I could afford and the places I preferred, I received an e-mail a few minutes later listing all the houses that fit our budget. When I made some adjustments, it didn't take her long to provide me with the list. I made several adjustments along the way, and she didn't show any disappointment. When we visited the houses, sent our offer, counter offers, house inspection, final inspections and closing, she made everything trouble-free. We basically sat down and relaxed while she did the dirty work. I know everything she did was all part of her job, but I feel obligated to tell you what a great job she did. You very much need her in your team. Her professionalism, promptness, candidness, and her personal side of things will be vital in the success of your team. Thank you very much!"

"John was mentioned to us by our mortgage person at the bank. He came to our house and told us the areas we needed to address to sell our house. We did and he answered every question we had. He was available to us any time we had a question. His local knowledge of the fox valley area is why we chose him. All went smooth and we sold our house with in 3 days of putting it on the market.

Judy Joss, Agent

"In every way Judy was there for me. She was able to anticipate each step from the first day we sat down to plan, and was able to reach potential serious buyers and complete the sale of my home in a very satisfactory time frame. As a widow and a novice in this business, Judy was all the more valuable to me, and I feel that both parties in this transaction found this a pleasant experience."

Julie Fiorito, Kathy Brothers Team

"Julie was always available to us whether in person, by phone or e-mail! She showed us homes that met our criteria and was honest with us throughout our purchase process. She put up with all our questions with a smile on her face. I have no doubt that things went smoothly because of her. Many thanks!"

- Laura

Kathy Brothers, Kathy Brothers Team

"Kathy helped my mom find her home, helped me find my home in the midst of an out of state move while pregnant and, after our second child was born, helped us sell that house and buy a new larger home to accommodate our growing family. I can't speak highly enough about how professional she is, yet also practical, understanding about things such as showings or day to day stresses buying or selling. As well, her efforts not only gave us a profit on the sale, but her educating us as we went along helped us not only find a great house, but in a new growing community surrounded by some of the best schools and neighbors. Kathy, Julie and the entire team helped us from start to finish. She is our family's Realtor for life."

- Kim

Ken Ward, The Ward-Sannita Team

"I highly recommend Ken Ward and his team for any real estate needs. We used Ken to list our house and used his seasoned advice to prep our home for the sale. 10 days later we received two solid offers and accepted one above asking price. Then, we put Ken to the task of finding the perfect home to meet our growing needs. His patience, determination, and knowledge of the area helped us find our dream home and he was able to help us negotiate a fair deal. In every potential home, he was able point out specific issues with mechanics and structure that could potentially cause problems with the purchase. Ken and Kim are the best of the best!"

- Heather T.

Martha Dorfler, Agent

"Martha was a pro from the very start. She gave an honest assessment of our property, suggested a realistic asking price and had our home sold within a month! From helping stage the home to continuously checking on the property while I was traveling for work, Martha went over and beyond! Once we accepted our offer, to the time it was ready to close, we were regularly informed of any progress being made. Martha made us feel as though we were her top priority at all times! I would strongly recommend Martha Dorfler to anyone in the market of buying or selling their home."

Mary Kay Coleman, Agent

"I had a nice house in St. Charles. Because it backed up to a busy street, it was tough to sell. Mary Kay worked her tail off to find a buyer from Chicago which found the location acceptable. She didn't just stick a sign in the yard and post it on-line. She provided great staging advice, communicated with us perpetually and did a great job negotiating the contract. Mary Kay earned the commission on this one. I would definitely have her as my realtor again and highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about selling their home."

- Jan Barbeau

Mary Reuter, The Reuter Team

"Mary, thank you so much for all your help finding my new home!

It would have all been much more stressful without you there! Thanks so much!"

- Julie

We eventually found our dream home and were able to finalize a deal under our budget and close before our lease ended. The whole home buying team Janet recommended to us, including home inspector Gary, attorney Bob, and mortgage manager Chai, were very efficient and helpful guiding us through the whole process."
