"Hayley is a fantastic realtor! She is professional, energetic, honest, and VERY knowledgeable about
Chicago real estate. She helped us buy our dream home -- a single-family home in Roscoe Village in
Chicago that was being built as new construction. My husband and I were not the easiest clients. We
were pretty picky and looked for several months before we found "the one." So, Hayley pulled out all
the stops and actually found our home on a "drive-by" -- not from the MLS. She then helped us
negotiate the contract, which is an especially tall order on new construction. Even after we were under
contract on the house, Hayley was a tremendous help to us in picking finishes and finalizing plans for the
construction of the house. It was such a relief having her help us navigate the many steps of a real estate
purchase. I highly recommend hiring Hayley and her team!" - Molly
"Hayley is the consummate real estate professional. She has both a depth of knowledge for individual Chicago neighborhoods and a breadth of knowledge to cover the whole city. After our first meeting, Hayley handpicked a number of properties for us to visit - each of which were right in line with our expectations for our first home. This type of tailored feedback was a great benefit to us and our busy schedules. Hayley also possesses a keen eye - both in recognizing design flaws / issues with properties that a novice might not catch and in recognizing when a listed property is overpriced - which greatly assisted us in narrowing down our search. Once we actually settled on a property, Hayley led us through a number of comparable properties. She proved invaluable in helping us tailor our offer - a winning bid in a multiple offer situation where we still signed on the property for under asking. If you are considering buying a home in Chicago, you can do no better than Hayley Westhoff - her knowledge of the area and, more importantly, her expertise in getting transactions across the finish line, are unmatched." - Brett
"Hayley has some of the fiercest negotiation skills I have ever seen (doing justice to every one of her negotiation credentials). She played it cool in the toughest situations with the sellers playing extreme hardball and helped us get an insanely good deal for the Lincoln Park area!! Throughout this process, it was so clear that she cared about our interests and this was not a mere transaction. In Hayley, we have found a friend and real estate agent for the long-haul. We have been recommending Hayley to all our friends and colleagues, we firmly believe that they will be in the BEST HANDS in town." - Sara
"We couldn’t have asked for a better partner during this stressful process. She was incredibly attentive, approachable, responsive, and fiercely advocated for us. We had an incredibly difficult seller and listing agent and Hayley handled the situation with such professionalism and expertise, I truly don’t think any other agent would have been able to get us through that!" - Kevin
"She would ask questions that we would have never thought to ask! There were points in the process that got stressful and her actions always de-escalated the situation. During the *entire* process, I felt like Hayley always had our interests in mind as her primary priority. There was one property where she was able to objectively and tactfully explain why it might not be the best fit for us despite my initial, emotional excitement for it." - Joyce
"Hayley is amazing! We hired Hayley to help us purchase our home, and she went above & beyond to get us exactly what we wanted. Hayley's dedication to her clients is evident in every single interaction that you will have with her. She is extremely thoughtful and very responsive, and she was able to provide advice in a straightforward, yet tactful manner. Hayley is truly passionate about what she does, and I would highly recommend her to everyone that I know!" - Leah
