"Lisa is that exceptional broker that you hear about but rarely meet ... the one that goes way above and beyond the norm, that truly cares about her client's happiness, who works tirelessly to ensure all the i's are dotted and the t's crossed, and will ensure you are partners every step of the way. Patient, humorous (which is necessary!), intelligent and kind. . . she truly made my sell and buy a terrific experience." - J. S.
"Lisa is a joy to work with. As a savvy agent, she helped us navigate the difficulties of having a home on the market and sell for a great price! Her professionalism and thoughtfulness are highly valued and much appreciated!" - Andrea H.
"Lisa is an amazing broker. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the houses on the market, and extremely patient with us. She made our home buying experience easy and fun. She continues to share her knowledge of the area with us and provides us with great information and tips since we are new to the area. I would recommend her to everyone looking in the Wilmette area and the North Shore. " - Kathryn G.
"Lisa is a great realtor and has been very helpful to us. She is professional, knowledgeable and also very friendly and thoughtful. She has a clear mind and listed all the pros and cons for every house we looked at or she recommended, she also has a lot of house pricing experience and negotiation skills. Lisa successfully helped us avoid a bad house deal(the reason why now we know it was a bad deal is that the offer price my wife and I was thinking at that time is close to the current house listing price after it dropped again and again and nobody is offering) with deep analysis and helped us find our dream house. Both my wife and I love working with Lisa! " - Lin J.
"Lisa Finks is undoubtedly the best overall real estate agent I have ever worked with. She takes to heart my needs and budget and assists even if the resulting sale will not benefit her directly. She is very knowledgeable about many kinds of sales, including a foreclosure I am currently involved in. Lisa has access to many tools which assist a buyer or seller in comparison shopping as well as those renovations which do and do NOT pay back when selling. Lisa is a joy to work with, a great listener, and I would recommend her highly to anyone in the market to buy or sell in Wilmette or beyond. " - Beth L.
"Lisa is a true professional and knows the north suburb's villages and cities better than any other agent. She has knowledge of the local schools and a great understanding of what makes each community unique. When you combine the fact that she is seasoned attorney with extensive knowledge of real-estate law, you are getting tremendous service not found with your average agent. Hiring Lisa will be the best decision you can make when looking to buy or sell your property. " - E. M.
