"I HIGHLY recommend working with Vanessa. She was very organized, quick to reply, and showed us multiple options that fit all our needs and wants. We have happily moved into our new apartment, which we would have never known about were it not for her!" - Ana
"If you’re looking for a new home in Chicagoland or are selling your current home, please consider reaching out to my former agent, now friend Vanessa Kanavos and her team at Compass. Vanessa’s compassion, professionalism, and industry expertise is absolutely unmatched. Vanessa was able to handle an extraordinarily complicated situation that my wife and I had, all with grace, positivity and encouragement. I can not speak any more highly of Vanessa and her ability to understand the market, learn our home search patterns and put us in a position to succeed. Vanessa is the person who found our forever home for us, and we can not be more grateful. There needs to be more Vanessa’s in this world." - Mark Q.
"Vanessa is truly wonderful. She is professional, knowledgeable, and very thorough with her research. We have been working with her for 2 years now because she is the only agent we trust to help us navigate through this insane market for renters in Chicago. We would recommend Vanessa to ANYONE - watch her work her magic!!" - Kira
"We hired Vanessa to sell our home, and she was amazing. At first we’re weren’t sure if we were ready but she advised us every step of the way, and got us top dollar for our property. She was very responsive with us, our buyers, attorney and mortgage broker. The process was very smooth and we have even recommended her to friends and family. 10/10 would work with her again!" - Stacy H.
"I'm yelling (from my new rooftop) for everyone to trust their home-buying experience with Vanessa -- she won't disappoint!
As first-time home buyers, my partner and I were very nervous about getting the process started, but Vanessa quickly made those feelings go away. Upon our initial conversation, she gave us detailed materials, smart guidance, and the confidence we needed to start our search for a home.
Vanessa was very patient with us on our lengthy house search (it was not an ideal task during the pandemic, but she made it seem easy). She was always quick to respond to our many, many questions via email or even by phone in case we still needed more clarification. Vanessa also connected us with reliable recommendations for inspectors, lawyers, etc. that took some other decision-making tasks off our plate and ultimately helped make the process go smoothly.
Once we found our perfect home, she gave us great insights during the negotiation, and if it wasn't for her advice, we wouldn't have won the bid for our house. I couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out! If we ever leave our perfect home, we'd be happy to do it all over again with Vanessa." - Kristen
