"Five stars is not nearly enough to describe our experience with Carissa. When my boyfriend and I decided to for our first condo, we truly did not know much about the process. Carissa met with us and provided detailed information about the process beginning to end. She was patient beyond measure with our constant questions and truly available whenever we needed her. She only provided listings that were relevant to what we were looking for and, when we wanted to see a showing, she had it set up within a few hours. Not only did she help us find our dream condo, but advocated for us the offer to the closing, keeping us organized and clearly explaining each part of the process. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and professional, she is also so patient and kind. We know that she had many other properties she was managing, but made us feel like we were important at all times. We truly cannot recommend her enough. Whoever has the pleasure to work with Carissa is very lucky."
"Carissa is one of the most thoughtful and detail oriented professionals that I've had the pleasure of working with. When she tells you her goal is to find the perfect place for you, she genuinely means it, and her authenticity comes through in her patience, execution, and follow-up. The job isn't over when the papers are , either. Carissa's work extends through move-in, including continued coordination with all parties involved, introduction to the neighborhood, and housewarming. Highly recommended."
"It was an excellent experience working with Carissa in the sale (and purchase) of our home. Carissa is dedicated and makes you feel that your listing is the #1 priority. Carissa was also very responsive and follows up with every email and displays a high-level expertise in regards to the Chicago real estate market. She is also prompt and gets the ball rolling as soon as possible."
"We loved working with Carissa! Buying a house can be overwhelming, especially for first time buyers in Chicago. She explained the process so well and made it seamless and simple. Her frequent communication made us feel we were her top priority. She was able to work around our schedule and show us homes while we were visiting out of state, and we were able to find a beautiful home without much trouble at all! Carissa was prepared, detail-oriented, and always in a great mood. We highly recommend her!"
