★★★★★
"Marie Levesque of Compass represented me during the process of finding and closing on a condo in Chicago. My experience in working with Marie was superlative in every way. My focus was on Hyde Park and the South Loop. Marie knows both neighborhoods extremely well—knowledge that helped me greatly in choosing between them. I can’t say enough that is positive about Marie’s promptness, patience, effective listening, and considerateness, as well as good humor during a few situations we encountered on this journey! I so appreciate her unwavering focus on finding the right fit for my husband and me, as well as for our extended family. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who combines the highest ethics and expertise, and who is also a genuinely lovely person, you’ll find all those qualities in Marie."

"Marie Levesque is fantastic! She goes way beyond the call of duty to help her clients. We’ve used her three times now to buy properties in Chicago, and each time she gives good advice and knocks herself out for us.

★★★★★
"Marie Levesque is our hero. About eight months ago, she showed us an amazing property in Hyde Park. She was upfront about the fact that the property was a short sale, and as such it would take the banks a few months to approve. Throughout our wait, Marie, with patience, grace and constancy, continued to show us properties and follow up with the sellers on the short sale process. Four months turned to five, then six, and finally, after over more than seven months, we closed on our beautiful condo. The nature of short sales is complex, and as buyers we knew that Marie was a dream to work with: for short sales, the broker needs to be level-headed and optimistic in spite of the very uncertain nature of this kind of transaction. Marie embodies all those fine qualities. She was without a doubt professional, respectful, prompt and marvelous to work with. We cannot recommend her anymore highly. Thank you, Marie, for all your exceptional support and help, we could not have done it without you!!!"

★★★★★
"Marie Levesque is our real estate agent and she helped us find a nice home. Marie provided us with excellent service! As one knows, looking and buying a home is never an easy process; it can be both financial and an emotional undertaking. Marie was very well versed and was there to guide, advise, and advocate for us throughout the whole process. She was very attentive and understanding of our needs. We were very thankful we had Marie as our agent!"

★★★★★
"Working with Marie was the best decision we made next to deciding on our house. Marie is great at what she does, she's thorough, she's not pushy, she takes her time to find what you like in a home and what you can do. Throughout the process, I knew that I could trust that she had our best interest at heart, which made the process so much easier. If we buy more property in the future, she will be our first call."

★★★★★
"I have worked with Marie on several transactions over the past few years, including buying, selling, and leasing rental property. She has consistently been nothing less than outstanding to work with! Her responsiveness, professionalism, reliability, and attention to detail are characteristics that differentiate her from others. She has truly gone above and beyond in her work with me, and I can't imagine working with any other realtor. I enthusiastically recommend Marie to anyone in the real estate market in Chicago!" – Yuval Calev

★★★★★
"Marie has sold four of my properties (3 condos and 1 town house) in a difficult market. In each instance, I relied on her staging and marketing expertise to sell them at the highest price and as quickly as possible. She delivered. The expense we incurred to make each property show-ready, which included painting, refinishing the floors and some repairs as well as staging, was recouped in the sales price. This preparation was indispensable in presenting our properties at their best. Marie’s advice on pricing and market outreach, which included print ads, broker emails, and an extensive online presence, helped drive buyers to the properties. I have no doubt that it was the combination of pricing, staging and marketing that sold one of our properties in just four days." -Sam Adam Jr.

★★★★★
“From the beginning of the process through the selling of our home, Marie has been professional and personable. We chose to list our home with her because, in our first meeting, Marie was very warm and responsive to our concerns. She worked with us patiently through the process of determining the asking price for our home, and clearly had our best interests in mind at all times. When she arranged to show our home, Marie always gave us plenty of time to prepare--usually 24 hours or more. Most importantly, Marie Levesque is a member of the community in which our home was located. She has a rich knowledge of the Hyde Park and Woodlawn areas and a genuine love for the area. She was a pleasure to work with, and someone we now consider a friend." -Robin Benny and Richard Milo

★★★★★
"I and my family wish to commend and heartily recommend the real estate broker services provided by Marie Levesque. Marie represented us in the recent sale of our apartment in Hyde Park. She had been the sellers’ agent when we originally bought the co-op apartment as residence for our daughter as she began medical school at the University of Chicago. When our daughter graduated this year and we decided to sell the apartment, we decided to engage Marie because we had been positively impressed by her professionalism and her positive and congenial approach .

★★★★★
We were more than gratified to have chosen her as our agent. She began by working with us to identify the touch-ups and upgrades that would be most important; she identified not just work that would make the property ready for sale, but also that would make it most attractive to a range of prospective buyers. With this work decided upon, she assisted us in getting multiple bids on the work from reliable contractors, allowing us to get work of high quality at a very reasonable cost. Because none of us lived in Chicago after our daughter moved out, Marie came to the rescue when a couple of incomplete understandings arose with the contractor, assuring that the work was completed promptly, successfully, and at agreed upon cost.

★★★★★
As soon as the apartment was ready to list, Marie marketed it assertively, resulting within just a couple of weeks in an offer and then a contract. Once the contract was in place, she provided continuing “above and beyond” assistance in chasing down local documents and actions required for the sale. With her guidance and support, the listing-to-sale process was completed in less than six weeks.

★★★★★
Through it all, Marie demonstrated exemplary professionalism, effectiveness, and marketing wisdom. To these qualities she adds politeness, responsiveness, and a clear client-first approach. We therefore highly recommend her services to anyone either buying or selling property in the areas where she works." -Alfred V. Bartlett, M.D., F.A.A.P.

Landlord Testimonials

★★★★★
Before Marie took my listing, I had been through two other property services. Marie made the process painless and provided much needed guidance on improving the property in ways that produced real results. After finding a tenant, she kept in touch and made sure everything was going smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend Marie for all your property management needs.”

★★★★★
“Marie assisted me with renting out my condominium. It has been a true pleasure working with someone who is very knowledgeable in her field and someone you are confident will handle everything in her client’s best interest. Marie kept me informed every step of the way, as well as provided excellent guidance based on her experience. I look forward to working with Marie again in my search for a home in the near future.”
