"Van Ann is extremely nice, helpful and very easy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home or find their dream home. We gave Van Ann our requirements and she found many homes for us to review and was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Any questions (there were many) were answered with kindness and taken care of immediately. I cannot say enough about our most positive experience. Any realtor can help buy a home, we trusted Van Ann to find our dream home for the best price and value and we will only use Van Ann to sell our property when the time comes."

"I had my house on the market for many years and tried many realtors, but I was not getting the offers I thought I should be getting. Van Ann was highly recommended by a friend and I very pleased that I listened to my friend. Van Ann showed me how you to stage my house to make it more attractive to the potential buyer. We did not do anything expensive, but Van Ann showed me that it is the little things that you do to your house to make it more attractive. I sold my house in less than a week. I highly recommend Van Ann as your realtor and I know you will be very pleased with her results."

"Van Ann's dedication and expertise made our buying experience smooth and seamless. After an extensive review of the market and a lengthy search for the perfect house and perfect property-Van Ann came through with flying colors. Van Ann's price negotiation was spot-on,easy and timely. Paperwork was expertly prepared and efficiently presented. Inspections were timely and professional and and closing was effortless. All in all, from beginning to end Van Ann made the experience of finding and purchasing the forever dream house that we live in a most pleasant and enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend working with Van Ann for all real estate transactions!!!"

"Van Ann took my ordinary home and made it extraordinarily! We had a lot of competition but somehow she sold it in 30 days. She was there during the inspection and most importantly she met the appraiser at the house with local comps so there would be no problems. She got me top dollar and was on top of everything all the way to the closing."

"Van Ann transformed our home into a showstopper. We had many showings due to her staging of our home and the beautiful photographs of our house. She is extremely detail-oriented and always responded to any of our concerns in a very timely manner. Due to the huge amount of homes on the market, our home didn't sell in the time period we needed. We changed our plans from selling to renting our home. Van Ann got us a good renter in one day's time and negotiated a rent much higher than our original monthly rental price."

About Van Ann

Van Ann Kim is a top Real Estate Broker with Compass. She is a true veteran of the real estate market with over 15 years of experience, and she has built her business almost entirely through the recommendations of her satisfied clients. Van Ann possesses an acute knowledge of the market servicing her clients in buying and selling homes throughout the Northwest Suburbs and North Shore. Her commitment is unrivaled amongst her peers where she sets herself apart by demonstrating professionalism, resourcefulness and dedication on each and every transaction.

It starts with Van Ann's approach to her business where she believes in giving personalized service to each and every one of her clients. She does this by making a conscious effort to limit her business so she can focus all of her energies on each individual client and give them the detailed oriented service they deserve.

Van Ann's attention to detail and organizational abilities were developed at an early age. She earned an Engineering degree from the University of Illinois and worked for 10 years as Project Manager for Ameritech/AT&T. These skills help Van Ann possess a competitive edge over her competition in the marketplace where she formulates a comprehensive plan to help her clients accomplish their goals. She believes there are 3 major areas that must be achieved to have success.

First is Staging: what clients have discovered, especially those who have unsuccessfully listed with other agents, is their "shock" at how much better Van Ann's staging is and what a difference it made in the ultimate sale of their home. Van Ann is able to accomplish this through her personal knowledge of trends in home décor, her attention to detail and the proper use of a professional decorator. This is why Van Ann has the reputation of being able to sell homes that other agents could not.

Second is Knowledge of the Market: Van Ann has raised 3 children from grade school to college in her market area and has been part of the community for over two decades. She understands the market and knows why a similar home half a mile away may be priced vastly different.

Third is Negotiation and Closing:Buying or selling a home is probably one of the most important decisions anyone can make. Van Ann never forgets how important it is for each of her clients. As she puts it “I pride myself in fighting for every dollar for my clients and paying meticulous attention to the details to ensure success on every completed transaction.”

From Multi-Million Dollar Estate Homes to Quaint Cottages and everything else in between Van Ann's results speak for themselves. Don't just take Van Ann's word for her success. Van Ann is happy to provide you with a list of her past clients and encourages anyone to contact them. Van Ann puts it best when she says" My proudest achievement is the satisfaction of my past clients, especially those who switched from another agent".
