"We would not hesitate to recommend Vika to prospective home buyers. She was patient with us and understanding of our needs and wants. She has great insight into her neighborhoods and good suggestions for how to make a prospective house a new home.
"Selling a house can be very stressful but when, after almost 30 years, we decided to sell our Skokie home, Victoria made the entire process painless. From our very first interview, we knew that we were working with the consummate professional. Victoria knew the market and market trends, had immediate ideas as to how to market our property, gave valuable advice as to minor repairs and decluttering, and even advised to how arrange our existing furniture to the best advantage. The photographs and a 3-D tour of our house were of the highest professional quality and highlighted the best that our house had to offer. Victoria was tireless in marketing our house and was always available when we had any questions or concerns, she impressively returned our calls almost right away. Even though our house was put on the market in a relatively slow season, we received an offer within 30 days. Victoria capably conducted all the negotiations on our behalf and also provided additional concierge services before the closing saving us time and effort. We cannot recommend Victoria highly enough, the entire process was a testimony to her professionalism and outstanding skills."
"Victoria is an outstanding real estate agent. We highly recommend her. She has excellent interpersonal and communication skills; is passionate about her work; and is knowledgeable about local market trends. After 35 years of living in Skokie, we were ready to move. When we interviewed Victoria, we immediately realized that she was the agent for us. She recommended a few minor repairs, and with a few props, plants and decluttering, she enhanced the appearance and value of our home. Her recommendations were spot on, and the photos and videos she took of our home were of professional quality Victoria is extremely ethical and client-focused. Two weeks after we hired her, our house was under contract. She not only sold our home but was a strong advocate on our behalf during price negotiations. At all times, she put our interests first while making sure that the contract specifications were adhered to by all sides. We had a cross country move scheduled when the pandemic hit and were advised to stay in place. We did not know how to get our groceries let alone move out of state. Victoria smoothed the process so that we could remain in quarantine an extra month. She went above and beyond and tied up many loose ends before and after we left town."
"Victoria was a fantastic partner to us, as we went about the process of buying our home in Skokie/Evanston. She was very knowledgeable about the area, including giving us advanced notice about houses that are about to hit the market, so we could see them right away (or, in some cases, even before they hit the market). When we ran into issues at the inspection, Victoria went above and beyond by calling several companies to make sure the seller's were doing the correct work to remediate the issue and ensure the issues didn't re-appear. And, Victoria is very responsive. If she missed our call, we always had a call back within an hour or two. We'd use Victoria again in a heartbeat, if we move to the future. We highly recommend you use her."
"I will recommend Victoria to anyone and everyone I know who is interested in buying or selling a house in the Skevanston neighborhood. She knows the market and she knows what sells and who the buyers are. She helped us stage our house, negotiate offers, and even worked with us to make our transition to a new place downtown. She's direct, hard working, smart, persistent and kept us updated. Vica knows her stuff!!"
"Victoria is an intelligent, resourceful, and trusted real estate resource. We were selling our IL home while living in another state, and we immediately trusted that she would take care of things. She attended to every detail. She treated our place as her own and staged it with thoughtful touches that accentuated all of the things we loved about living there. It worked. She's fantastic. Highly recommended."
"Victoria is a real estate pro in every sense of the word! She is extremely patient and understands that selling or buying a home can be a very stressful and emotional experience. Victoria offered excellent advice when it came to getting our house ready to sell from what improvements were needed to how to price it. Thanks to her guidance, our house was under contract in 2 days! And we had several backup offers as well. What more could you want? Victoria is incredibly responsive and thorough with all details. She is passionate about the real estate industry and just wants her clients to be happy -- and they are! We highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling your home."
