"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!"
"We had the pleasure of working with Annie Bauer during the sale of our condo in the West Loop. Upon the first meeting with Annie, we knew she was a class act. She came fully prepared with a well thought out marketing plan to capitalize on the velocity of the market., She knew how to create high demand in a short period of time, which would lead to the ultimate outcome...multiple offers! My husband and I adopted her plan and our home sold in one weekend with 9 offers, over list price!!! Annie Bauer is an expert in her market and knows how to get a home sold...at its TOP price. Annie is professional, knowledgeable, highly effective and incredibly reliable. She went above and beyond for us every step of the way in getting our condo closed on time. I would recommend Annie to anyone looking to buy/sell/rent/etc... in the Chicago area. Our experience with Annie has left us both highly respectful of her as a top agent in her field, but we have also developed a wonderful friendship with her as well. We only wish we would have met her a lot sooner..."
"Brittany did a great job and really helped me through the process. She took her time and I felt very comfortable that she had my best interests in mind with both my purchase and sale. Very pleased with the process and support that @Properties provided."
"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!"
"Brittany was great to work with! She cared about the needs of my wife and I and ensured we got what we want and did not overpay for it. Will certainly look to work with her again and recommend to anyone!"
"Working with Annie was an absolutely amazing experience and she made selling our condo seem effortless! She is truly a real estate expert and goes above and beyond with customer service. Annie was extremely attentive and informative and answered every text, call and email with lightening speed while providing very useful feedback and market knowledge. Upon initially meeting Annie she gave us some small suggestions to get top dollar on our condo and they paid off- We were able to sell for over list price. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Annie if you are looking to buy or sell. She really listens to what her clients are looking for and you will always feel like you know what is going on- something that cannot be said for all real estate agents! @properties really goes the extra mile with training their agents!"
"We are so lucky to have found Brittany. Her knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, and her ability to intuitively understand our needs makes her an exceptional resource. In addition to being patient and kind during our search, she was a true advocate during the closing process. Brittany is not just a broker, she becomes a friend. Brittany is truly excellent and I recommend her to everyone I know. Thank you Brittany!"

"Annie was the best! She sold our place sold in a few days and for a higher price than we imagined! She's super professional, knows the market and has a great personality. We would hire her again in a heartbeat."
"Brittany did a great job of navigating a complex buy to get this deal done. This specific purchase was an investment property and Brittany did a lot of research on the front end to be sure I would meet the goals I had in mind. She was right on the money, in regards to our offer price, and she shielded me from a lot of the behind the scenes work. She did a great job!"
"Annie was an amazing broker. She was super responsive, knowledgeable and really fought for what was best for me. She gave me honest opinions and was really helpful through the whole process. It wasn't easy dealing with HOA's, moving and other obstacles. I recommend her to anyone asking for a broker. She did a great job and I'm happy to say my condo is sold for a good price!"
"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!"
Brittany Bussell was above and beyond the best real estate agent I have ever worked with! I wish I could bring her to every city I will be purchasing property! She is by far the hardest working person I know. The house buying process can be far from enjoyable as anyone who has been through it is well aware. However Brittany, from start to finish made it a smooth and fun process. She listens to what you want and uses both your time and her time efficiently! She was there for me 24/7 whether it was my silly, paranoid or repetitive questions. If there was an answer to something she went out of her way to find the answer for me! I can't say enough about how amazing she was and how high she has set the bar for all real estate agents out there!
"Annie Bauer is the ultimate professional. So happy to have met her. Her combination of knowledge and peoples skills is unsurpassed. Initially our property was listed with another agency. After many months of ineffective results we switched to Annie & @properties. Immediate results followed . Her ability to see the best in every situation made the sale gratifying for both parties. Thank you Annie Bauer"
My fiance and I used Brittany to both sell our condo in Streeterville and buy a home in the western suburbs....and couldn't be happier with how both transactions turned out. Brittany was incredibly responsive, thoughtful and helpful throughout the entire process. She was extremely helpful in getting us to both closings on the same day, and the recommendations she had for a mortgage broker and real estate attorney were also fantastic. I would definitely work with Brittany again and would recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home!

Brittany and Annie did a Great Job in handling the sale of my home. Extremely efficient and thorough, always looked out for my best interests.
"While working with Brittany, she was always insightful, diligent, kind and an absolute pleasure to work with."
"I highly recommend Annie Bauer. I first communicated with Annie about selling my property in March of 2015 to provide her some background on the property I wanted to sell. The property was being rented at the time, and I was living overseas so was not able to undertake or oversee any work that was required to get the house ready to sell. Annie gave great advice on what needed to be done before the launch, and took the steps necessary on my behalf to implement the advice. This included arranging for a house inspection, identifying a general contractor, overseeing the work, dealing with a difficult tenant and working with a staging company to ensure the property looked its best for the photographs. Annie also spent her own time doing work on the property, including cleaning, painting and landscaping – she really went the extra mile. Once the house was ready to launch, Annie suggested advertising an open house, which turned out to be an extremely clever marketing strategy. I received offers at asking price before the property was viewed by the general public and a bidding war ensued during the first day of the open house. I ended up taking the house off the market after only two days, having accepted an offer well in excess of the asking price, which I attribute in substantial measure to her efforts during the bidding process. Annie kept the sale moving forward with the buyer, and Annie represented me at the closing which occurred three weeks after the offer was accepted. During the entire process, Annie was a superstar. She kept me focused, she kept everything on track, and she deserves great credit for handling a difficult client (me!) and a property that needed a lot of work prior to going on the market."
"Brittany did a wonderful job from start to finish ensuring this was smooth transaction."
"Ryan and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Annie. As first time buyers, Ryan and I needed a fair amount of guidance in starting the process. We expressed interest on Zillow for a few listings, and luckily Annie happened to be the agent on one of them. She immediately called us to let us know the property we were initially interested in was already under contract, but that she would still like to work with us to find something we would love. Annie met with us before any of the actual sifting through listings occurred to get a better understanding our interests in our "ideal" condo, and began to search for listings that met our criteria. Within three weeks of working with Annie, we found our condo and began what would be a rigorous process of purchasing. Throughout the process, Ryan and I had a lot of questions. From simple questions via text and email to multi-hour conversations after touring open houses, Annie always made herself available to provide us with the answers that we needed. Her detailed and thoughtful responses made us feel confident that we had a realtor that had our best interests in mind, and most importantly someone that we could trust. Our purchasing process found us in many difficult situations: a multiple offer scenario, difficult negotiations with the sellers, and appraisal issues to name a few. Annie had experience with all of these situations, and was able to guide us in getting our issues solved. Annie was by our side throughout, making sure everything was resolved as quickly as possible. Even during days when no progress made, Annie was checking in with us to let us know where things stood and to ask if we had any concerns. Once we finally closed on our condo and moved in, amidst all the issues we ran into during the process, we have been very happy with our new place. We truly believe a large reason for getting through the process is attributable to Annie’s expertise as a realtor. We would recommend Annie to anyone that needs a realtor and look forward to keeping in touch with her, both as our realtor and as the friends we have become during our condo hunt."
