"We worked with four realtors on the North Shore and NW suburbs in our search. She is by far the most responsive, and interested in finding a home that fit us, rather than just trying to shove us into whatever was in the pipeline. She went through detailed analysis of homes - looking at past tax records to understand the types of investments made into the homes she showed us. We ultimately found our home because she knew the area really well. She knew exactly why the location (walking distance from schools) and community (cozy, tight-knit neighborhood) would suit us, drove out to look at it herself - and explained the local history of the (all of the above, not part of the seller's information). When we arrived, we knew it had exactly what we needed, and she helped us move quickly enough so that our kids started the school year in the new district, in our new . We would highly recommend Aly for her knowledge, energy and keen interest in matching families to homes & communities. " - Cynthia A

" Aly and Justin are the best of the best. They have made buying (2x) and selling (1x) beyond seamless, easy, and enjoyable. There's no one else we would trust more to guide us along in this process, especially during a global pandemic. We highly recommend Aly & Justin to everyone, and anyone, who wants to work with realtors who are honest, listen, and want the best for their client. With Justin and Aly, the relationship doesn't stop after the selling/buying process is done, Aly and Justin still to this day provide contractor recommendations, styling advice, and market insight as we need / ask. Thank you A&J!
" Incredible experience. Their service is all-inclusive during the home buying process: advisor, therapist, friend. They're co-collaborators and trusted confidants, and made it their utmost priority to make sure we were thrilled with one of life's biggest, and most expensive, decisions. They cater their extensive knowledge and experience towards the individual needs of the buyer or seller, eschewing one-size-fits-all solutions. Meaning, they’re thoughtful about it. We felt heard and seen, and we can’t wait to work with them again!
" This was our first home buying experience, and Justin and Aly Tesar helped us understand the process from beginning to end. Unbelievable helpful and kind (really can't stress the latter enough here), I can't imagine the home buying process without their guidance. I want to recommend them to any and every one trying to decide on a realtor.
