"Liz possesses the perfect combination of attributes one would want in real estate professional: she is knowledgeable of the markets she works in and all the technical aspects of buying/selling a home, she has great taste and became a sounding board on any aesthetic decisions we made, and finally she is a joy to work with and truly wants what is best for her clients. I am excited to refer her to my friends because we had such a great experience with her." - Joseph
"I cannot say enough positive things about having Liz as my broker for my sale and purchase of a new home. I couldn't have gone through this process with anyone else! I had heard about Liz through a friend who had attended one of her open houses and stated it was the best open house she has ever attended. I had stumbled across a property that I knew was going to go fast and needed representation. Liz answered my initial call on a Sunday afternoon and we put an offer in on Monday morning. It was a multiple offer situation, and Liz knew exactly how to handle the situation so they ultimately accepted our offer. Liz's contacts and recommendations were impeccable. She has a strong attention to detail which you need in the process. It made the process and closing a breeze. Liz also handled the sale of my existing property. Her materials and listing were expertly crafted. Liz attended every showing on my property which led to excellent reviews and feedback for other brokers." - Emily
"My wife and had the pleasure of working with Liz for approximately 6 months as we went through the process of purchasing an apartment. We found Liz to be fantastic and and feel fortunate that we had her guiding us through the process. As relative newcomers to Chicago we were not very familiar with the city, neighborhood, transportation options, etc. Liz proved herself to be an expert who was willing to share her opinion but listened carefully to our concerns as she pointed us in the right direction. When we started the process we were committed to taking our time and only buying a place when we were ready and excited about what we were purchasing. We toured over 50 places finding things that were close but not exactly what we wanted. Never did Liz pressure us - she just kept working with us and narrowing our search. There are many options available in the real estate market but I would only make 1 phone call if I find myself in need of a realtor again in the future." - Ian
"Liz was great right from the start. She walked me through the process of selling my home, including the timeline, steps, proper pricing, and generally what to expect through the process. Her attention to detail was very helpful as she did a great job staging my unit for pictures and for all the showings. Liz's marketing skills were also a great asset since she attracted many potential buyers. She also knew the area and was able to leverage that knowledge really well. She sold my place at a price I was happy with in just 30 days from when we put it on the market, a real accomplishment given that it was right before the end of the year, and a testament to her negotiation ability. In addition, I was out of town for the closing but she took care of all the necessary items. Throughout the process, I was extremely happy with Liz as my agent, and I highly recommend her." - Josh
"It has been a few weeks since we moved; we love our house, we loved working with Liz, and we appreciate all the hard work she put into making this dream come true for us!!! The home-buying process was very stressful at times (as well as the condo-selling, which Liz brokered as well), but Liz helped us break it down into manageable steps and walked us through what was at times rocky terrain. We especially appreciated the personal attention she gave us— she was always available to answer questions, discuss issues, no matter how small— as well as the way she coached us through decisions but let us feel like we had the final say. I would highly recommend Liz to anyone, whether to relatively inexperienced clients like ourselves or to savvy veterans of the market. She is a professional who gets the job done but is also friendly and easy to work with. Thank you Liz Licata!!!!" - Silas
