Customer Testimonial

Donna Manella

Seller Rating:

Met Donna in 2012, she was my real estate agent and became a great friend of mine as well after the purchase of my first home.

Donna did everything in her power to make the sale go smoothly.

Exceptional individual that goes above and beyond. She's very sweet, ethical, honest, driven, trustworthy and such a valuable asset to your company.

Great company.

Great experience with Donna! - Jill Conser Tampa, Flori June 2017

Margaret Allen

Seller Rating:

Enri Gamez

Buyer Rating:

he was very helpfull. - Hubert Dornseifer Mt Pro May 2017

Robert Teverbaugh

Seller Rating:

I went with Robert because I knew he would get the sale done well, quickly, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum return. I worked with him when I had bought the place a few years ago, and would never consider using another broker in Chicago, either buying or selling.

Robert did an outstanding job of generating interest - on the first day we were listed we had a number of prospective buyers come by and express interest. Every aspect of marketing was done with an eye towards getting me the maximum value for my home with minimum disruption.

We were selling our place through Robert while also buying one out of town, contingent on the sale, which is a stressful situation. Robert handled the sale excellently - he provided great suggestions on ways our home would show better without disrupting our day to day lives. He organized showings to be as minimally disruptive as possible, and he brought in an offer for exactly what we wanted in a very short time. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough. - Kate Samuels, Chicago May 2017

Alberto Canaveral

Buyer Rating:

Al was awesome!! We are first time buyers and Al made the experience a great memory to always remember!! In some way, he will be part of this home as well! - Hustavo Heredia, Shorewo March 2017

Serafin Herrera

Buyer Rating:

Serafin was very helpful in searching for our first home. He explained the process well to us and was patient during our search. He was always quick to respond and easy to communicate with. - Angie & Mike, Chicago February 2017

Araceli Munoz

Seller Rating:

Araceli made the sale of my family's estate run smoothly by always being available to answer questions. We worked well together and I would recommend Araceli to anyone. - Kelly Grgas, Lindenhurst February 2017

Michelle Luna

Seller Rating:

Michelle Luna was attentive, patient, and hard working. She is the type of agent who really tried to understand the mindset of myself and my husband - it was because of this empathy that she connected with our family very well. She went above and beyond in every aspect of representation for the sale of our property.

I would recommend her for her professionalism and her devotion to making the sale.

I have worked with other agents and the process felt somewhat impersonal. The past agents involvement always seemed to dwindle once the broker/client contract was signed. Not the case with Michelle Luna, she stayed involved from start to finish - which I believe ultimately made the sale of come to fruition.

In terms of availability Michelle surpassed our expectations. With the drop of a hat she accommodated for every showing request, and the scheduling of inspections and walk-throughs.

Michelle Luna is one of a kind. - Jackie Wilcox, Chicago September 2016

Mary Howe

Seller Rating:

Mary Howe is an outstanding realtor, and I highly recommend her. She did a great job for us in marketing and selling our house in Chicago. She is a Chicago native and knows the north and northwest sides of Chicago in and out. Mary Howe is poised, intelligent, articulate and a very hard working, on the buyer or the seller's behalf. She is a great saleswoman, and people like and trust her. As do we, absolutely. We were very happy with her work on our behalf - thanks, Mary! - Pat Carey, Chicago, Il October 2015

Robert Lieblang

Buyer Rating:

Don't walk, run to get real estate help from Robert! - Bob Chicago September 2015

Donna Manella

Seller Rating:

Our broker, Donna Manella is a professional with excellent knowledge of the industry, area and is responsive to our needs. We have used her in the past and recommend her to everyone who asks us.

Donna Manella is the type of agent/broker who always keeps your concerns at the forefront of her work. Her commitment to you is reassuring and helpful throughout the entire process.

Donna took control and utilized all aspects of marketing, negotiation and advertising for our property. She proceeded at an excellent pace to allow for a sale in a very timely fashion.

We were very satisfied that our interests were met during the experience from start to finish. - Dan & Donna O'neill, Chi January 2017

Margaret Allen

Buyer Rating:

Margaret Allen did an amazing job and helped us find the house of our dreams!

She was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable, and always easy to reach, even on the weekends.

She made the process of searching for our new home as easy as possible and helped to ensure that everything ran smoothly during the search and through closing on our house.

I would highly recommend her services. - Robert Hanen, Montgomery August 2016

Robert Teverbaugh

Buyer Rating:

Bob Teverbaugh was a great broker and knew the various Chicago neighborhoods like the back of his hand. He was very knowledgeable and had great insight into neighborhood trends and hotspots that were pertinent to our search. He got us into properties within a very short period and always made room in his schedule to accommodate our home search.

Bob Teverbaugh was always there to answer questions and help us throughout the process, especially after we were under contract, going above and beyond his duties. When the seller and their attorney dropped the ball during the week of closing on our condo, Bob jumped in and got us to the finish line.

Bob was with us every step of the way and answered all of our questions. He was friendly, honest, and a great person to work with! I will highly recommend working with Bob to my family and friends. - Kyle, Chicago Loop April 2017

Alberto Canaveral

He was very knowledgeable very helpful and respectful even when being bombarded with multiple questions from my wife and I he never lossed his cool.He helped us look for a home for about 2 in half years if thats not dedication I dont know what is! Overall I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is trying to find a home or sell a home! I have no complaints about Al he was awsome to work with! - Joey Chicago February 2017

Araceli Munoz

Buyer Rating:

Terrific agent! Thoughtfully took care of all our concerns and real estate needs! She worked hard to get us a good deal and helped us land a great house! Would definitely consider engaging her services in the future! - Gim Kang, Chicago October 2016

Mary Howe

Buyer Rating:

We actually were looking for a house to rent, not purchase. Mary stepped up and took over our search in the best possible way. Even though there wasn't a lot in it for her, she never stopped working to find us exactly what we wanted and needed. And, when the house we wanted proved difficult -- we thought impossible -- to get, Mary kept at it and we ultimately got the house.

Mary was great. We'd recommend her to anyone, and have already done so. - Ron Kirschner And Patric May 2015

Donna Manella

Buyer Rating:

Donna helped us through the whole process with a professional and calm manner. She kept us on track and gave us that gentle nudge when needed. We will definitely be using her services for any future purchases in the area. - John Hale & Antony White January 2017

Margaret Allen

Buyer Rating:

Margaret is the most wonderful person I've ever had the chance to meet. She spent almost an hour on our 1st phone call getting to know me and what i was looking for, she told me about herself and didn't waste any time showing me properties that wouldn't work. She is very knowledgeable and it was a privilege working with her. I will recommend her to everyone I know. - Janira Garza June 2016
