I honestly do not know what I would have done without Katie! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago-land area, she is also an expert at all things real estate. As a first time home buyer, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but Katie was always there holding my hand through the whole process. She also had very detailed information packets that helped me understand all the different terminology of the industry. I had a very stressful offer process as there was quite a lot of competition for the property I bought. But Katie was never stressed! She was always calm, cool, and collected! I don’t know if I would have made it though the whole process without her. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone whether you are a first time homebuyer or even an investor! She really made the whole process fun AND easy! Thanks for everything Katie!
As a first time home buyer, Katie helped me find exactly what I was looking for. The buying process can be intimidating, but her responsiveness and assistance throughout the entire process made everything much easier for me. I can't imagine having a better experience than I did with Katie and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new property!
Katie was everything I needed in a real estate agent. She was born and raised in Lincoln Park, so I really relied on her lifetime of knowledge when it came to navigating the various neighborhoods, properties, and asking prices. Beyond her insights, Katie was there with me every step of the way through the process of purchasing my first home, and was patient and available to ensure I was comfortable throughout the process. She never made me feel like any question was a silly question. You may rely absolutely on anything Katie says about herself because she is honest, caring and knows her stuff!
Katie was fantastic at helping us find our new apartment when we moved to Chicago from the UK. When we were still abroad, she regularly sent us new rentals coming onto the market that fit what we were looking for. She made the process of viewing potential places so easy and painless for us. Katie is very organized, and the schedules she put together for us to view were seamless. Katie does a wonderful job of really understanding what is important to her clients in their search for a new home. She paid close attention to what my partner’s and my specific concerns and requirements were as we worked with her. I really appreciated that she was able to advise us based on what she had picked up about our preferences in addition to her own expertise and knowledge. We are so happy with the place we finally settled on and the pricing that Katie was able to help us secure. I would absolutely recommend working with Katie - we will definitely work with her again when we start looking to buy!
