Client Testimonials

We worked with Barb on the purchase of a co-op in Lincoln Park, along with the sale of our home in Bucktown. It was a very busy time in our lives as our daughter was born in the midst of the whole process. Barb was dedicated, helpful, and considerate at every juncture. Her committed and energetic approach to marketing our house enabled us to sell quickly at a price we were very happy with, even after accounting for an initial contract that fell through when the prospective buyer walked away due to personal issues. With a newborn at home, her ability to minimize our time on the market was a great relief. We would recommend her to anyone buying or selling in Chicago!

Barb recently helped us purchase our new home just off Michigan Avenue. We were very specific and it was not an easy one to find, nor an easy deal to put together, but she was able to navigate us through it. Throughout our search, Barb was knowledgeable, professional, discreet and patient. We never felt pressured and she was always available and responsive to our questions and needs. Barb has an impressive network and we were able to get information and act quickly in a moving market to get the special property we wanted. We have happily referred her to others we know and recommend her very highly.
