“We’ve been so lucky to work with Jeanne Rickard for over 8 years in both a commercial and residential context. Jeanne eased the process from start to finish consulting on site selection, space planning, and interior design. Jeanne quickly understood the needs and personality of each project. That insight has been invaluable in helping us find and transform just right space, which she has now done four times! Jeanne’s ability to see the potential of each space and how it could be adapted has helped us make strategic and well-informed choices. Jeanne's vision combined with her fierce commitment to getting the job done right inspires confidence and delivers beautiful outcomes. Finding just the right place is never easy, but with Jeanne we’ve been well-supported through each journey with stunning results! Jeanne has our highest recommendation.“ - Tiffany & George
“Jeanne was a valued partner in the redesign of our home. She helped with difficult decisions, from the design of the roof line and new windows to the type of wood floors to install. Her sense of design coupled with her head for quality and value were indispensable to us. She also helped to keep the process enjoyable!“ - Kathryn
“We worked with Jeanne on the purchase and renovation of our new home, a one bedroom condo in North Streeterville/Gold Coast. Jeanne has incredible vision and while she certainly pushed us out of our comfort zone helped us to find, buy and renovate an incredible top floor condo with amazing views. The renovation was stressful as one can imagine but the final outcome was worth the challenges and Jeanne provided really inspired design work, hired and oversaw all contractors, handled all purchases including cabinets and appliances and provided top notch interior design support throughout the project. She is a true one stop shop. Go Jeanne!“ - Barry
“I have know Jeanne on a personal level for a number years and have long been the recipient of her impeccable character. However, having the pleasure of working with her professionally even further solidified my belief in her abilities. Jeanne was so diligent in the process of helping me with the purchase of my townhouse. She worked tirelessly and patiently to find just the right place for me. Her multi-talented background brought the perfect blend of design, technology, real estate knowledge, and negotiating savvy, all of which contributed to me finding a beautiful home that is just perfect for me. She is the consummate professional and I will recommend her services to all!“ - Penny
“We went into our move with only some vague ideas about the kind of place we wanted. Jeanne not only helped us figure out exactly what we were looking for, but was also a strong advocate and sounding board for us when a listing just didn’t feel quite right. Jeanne is smart, excited, patient, and passionate about helping her clients. We’re delighted to have worked with her, and would recommend her in a heartbeat. “ - Austin & Claire
“Jeanne Rickard is talented at what she does, she was extremely professional, she did not give up until we were completely satisfied, and most of all it was a pleasure to spend time with her. Even though we were from out of state, she continued looking and doing previews for us. She was tenacious and persistent and she always kept only our interests in mind. We have never seen a realtor work that hard for us. And perhaps even most importantly, we not only gained our perfect residence in Chicago, we gained a new friend.“ - Ray Jones
