About Dina

Live in Happiness™

Everyone wants to be happy, right? With me, at my goal is your happiness. Literally. Delivering great experiences is what the real estate business is all about. My success is built on that principle. Great experiences equal happy clients. It’s just that simple. And it is the foundation of my success.

When I went into the real estate business, I consciously defined the core principles that guide me to this day. I wanted to treat people honestly and fairly. I wanted to exhibit excellence in all I do. But there is one guiding principle that stands out. I treat my clients the way I would like to be treated. Some people call it the Golden Rule, others good ethics, and some call it good business. The bottom line is that I care about the people I serve.

Therefore, I strive to provide a high level of service excellence. This principle has guided my real estate practice through 20 years of success. My clients keep telling their family and friends, and they come back to me year after year. I am grateful to my clients and absolutely humbled by the responses I get. They are what motivates me and are the source of my success.

But what does “Great Service” look like? It is managing the details, so you don’t have to. It is using my market knowledge to find you just the right home, or to price your home so it sells quickly and at the best return possible. It is about tirelessly defending my client’s best interests. It is about being great negotiator and wise counsellor. It is about achieving the best results. It’s about all of that enCOMPASSed with, state of the art technology.

I want all of my clients to “live in happiness” just as I do. That is the ultimate test of my business model.

My clients seem to agree.

Dina worked with us through the purchase of our new home. She was also helping us for the sale of my existing home as my listing agent/attorney did not do what they were supposed to do. She quickly learned what we wanted in a new home and found the way to get the no matter what. She is very organized, accountable, and responsible. She directed me in what we needed to do to buy a new home from the beginning to the end. We could not get that without her help. We would love to give her 100+ stars and recommend her to everyone with our confidence. We love to work with her for our future real estate transaction for both selling and buying process.

I would highly recommend Dina as an agent. She is passionate about her job and really helped us in the buying process. Neither my wife nor I were from the area and Dina really knew the Arlington Heights area and gave some excellent tips on different areas and helped us find what we were looking for. Dina is very trustworthy and had our best interests in mind. She actually talked us out of some houses we were considering and I'm glad she did. Dina is a work horse and was so responsive any time of day. We looked at so many houses before making our decision, and Dina was so patient during the process. Dina is truly one of a kind!

Dave & Katie - Arlington Heights

Dina Skinner is the BEST! We met her at an and found her to be a very knowledgeable, low-key, detail-oriented agent who knows the area like no other! She made herself available to us seven days a week by phone, email, text and in person. When she didn't know the answer to a question, she tapped into her many resources and got the answer for us. Her negotiating skill were impressive! Our transaction was smooth and headache free. I would utilize her services again and again - too bad I don't have any more condos to buy! You will be in excellent hands having Dina as your agent!

Cindy & John - Arlington Heights

I tried for 3 years to sell my condo, to no avail. After getting the opportunity to move to a better climate, I took a chance, hoping my fortune would be better than it had in the past. I was blessed to find Dina Skinner, there is a reason all of these people have left such high ratings for her. She is excellent at what she does. She sold my condo in less than a month...in December! And then, after a knucklehead lawyer messed up the sale, Dina sold it again. She sold...it...again. Dina is the consummate professional, she sets the highest standards for herself and that is reflected in her success. Do you need help selling your home? Then you NEED Dina Skinner!

Steve - Arlington Heights

Well, where does one begin. Dina Skinner is not only one of the smartest agents out there right now. Although I knew them through a family member, your initial reaction is "OK I will get a good deal, or she's not gonna care." Well everyone who is a "serious consumer" if you will, and in the market right now i want you to know that I not only got a great deal on my condo I purchased in Chicago more so "River North" - I purchased through Dina And Adam Skinner- but they also cared so much about me as the consumer. I then realized Dina Skinner is not just a real estate agent, she's one with poise, intelligence, confidence, energetic, and the most important contribution factor as a consumer you want which is: knowledge. When I was searching this was my first condo purchase ever. "First time buyer" like a car sales person would say. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to expect. Dina Skinner was there for every call, email, and question I had. Not only did she respond promptly, but she responded with one step ahead. If I called and said I liked the condo. The next day she had the "comps" before I could even ask for them. To make a very long story short. Those of you who read reviews out there and are looking for a great agent who knows not only the beautiful city of Chicago, but also the surrounding suburbs around it to a "T", then Dina Skinner is the right agent for you. She cares. She's awesome. She's energetic. And she's wakes up every morning for her family and for her clientele. Thanks again Dina for everything and helping assist with my first purchase ever. I don't know how to thank you and Adam enough. I will never forget this purchase as it was my first, and it was my BEST.

Michael - Downtown Chicago

Dina did a great job of helping me find the right for me. She was quick to respond and was very helpful when we negotiated the price. I call her the Tornado! I have used her twice in the last year and a great job both times.

Don B. - Palatine

My husband and I were new home buyers and were nervous about the entire process. We came across reviews of Dina online, and they described her to a T. Dina was very patient, kind and was always available for any questions/doubts we had. She not only educated us about the most intricate details of buying, but was also honest enough to tell you, "not this ," even though you wanted to put an offer in! And I'm glad she did, because she took us to every home we asked for and then some. She then found us our dream home! We continually recommend her to our family and friends, because finding someone to look out for your best interests is hard to come by these days. Thanks Dina!
