"My wife and I live abroad and asked Annie to manage the sale of our home in Chicago. She completely knocked it out of the park! Absolutely loved what she did to get it market ready and she was full of enthusiasm. Annie took care of everything for us from repairs, paint, floor resurfacing, beautiful staging and most importantly a effective marketing plan. She was our advocate and a strong negotiator, she leveraged multiple offers and got us far more than we expected to get for the property, over list price. This was the highest priced town home sold in our association EVER!!!

Thanks Annie!"

”As a first-time homebuyer, I could not be more fortunate to have had Brittany as my real estate agent. Her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate world helped guide me through the entire process. Buying a home can be extremely stressful, but Brittany was with me every single step of the way to ensure I was educated on everything put in front of me, making the whole process smooth She does more than you can even ask of her, gets back to you immediately, and answers every single question you may have. She genuinely cares about you, your comfort level, and happiness in every property you look at to ensure you purchase the right place for yourself. I would DEFINITELY work with Brittany again and highly recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent!"

"I went through a number of different realtors who could not get the property sold at or near the listing price before finding Brittany. Brittany had multiple offers to me within 3 days of listing my condo. She works incredibly hard and takes care of the small things so you don't have to. She thinks of all the details that make the difference in getting the property sold. I'll definitely be contacting her when it's time to sell my next place!"
