Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in South Elgin, IL.
My husband and I cannot say enough about Ann. Her honesty and professionalism blew us away! We were first time home buyers with a budget of about $250,000. We reached out to Ann regarding one of her listings last December, and she was very quick to respond. Though it was her own listing, she wasn't afraid to tell us that it might not be the best fit. I spent a lot of time with Ann, looking at several houses. Being first time home buyers, we really had no idea what we wanted. Ann was very patient with us, and was quick to discern what we needed, though I'm sure I didn't make it easy for her. ;) Searching for a home is emotional and time consuming, but I felt we had a champion and a cheerleader in Ann, as she never let the search get us down and was forever optimistic that we would find our home. It's hard to convey in a review just how wonderful Ann is...I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
Ann presented us with a large binder of market research specific to our home. She brings lots of energy to the sales process with staging expertise and a ton of contacts to do home repairs prior showing the home. Ann responds to texts or calls very quickly which I felt was important as well.
Ann was our realtor when we were searching for a home in the Geneva area. We worked together for months as she tirelessly took us to every place we wanted to see and added to our list as she found places she thought would suit us.
She's smart and kind and funny, which was important to us as we spent many weekend days together.
When we finally found THE HOUSE, a 1930 bungalow that would surely need some work, she recommended and arranged to meet the trades there (we lived out of the area) so we could get estimates before making our offer on the house. I think that's above and beyond her job description, but she always went out of her way for us. She negotiated an agreeable contract for us and even recommended a local attorney to help us with our closing. She knows everyone!
We didn't even realize how exceptional and unusual her care was until we compared it to the service we got from the realtor selling our other home. Well, no comparison at all.

As a seller in a buyers market, it is important to find a Real Estate Professional that not only understands the current market, but can also bring you qualified buyers. Ann is that Real Estate Professional. While interviewing several realtors prior to listing my property, I was impressed with Ann's sales record and staging experience. She spent several hours with me reviewing the current market, comparables, and what buyers were looking for in my price range. Though I can say we didn't agree on everything involved in presenting the house for sale, we were able to work together successfully and sell at list price on the first day. There are many realtors to choose from, but you will not find one with more knowledge, experience, and commitment than Ann Adams.
My wife and I are working with Ann to help find a new home. Ann is intelligent, extremely responsive and most importantly honest. Although we are still looking for just the right home/property, I felt it necessary to write this review based on all of the service we have received thus far..
Ann did an amazing job selling my parents home. She staged the home and actively marketed it. She even watered the lawn to keep the house looking great (I didn't live in the home at the time). She is courteous, professional and gives you a 110%. She also can recommend great vendors and was just so supportive throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Ann--she is a true dynamo!

From day one, Ann delivered a professional and seamless selling experience. She provided analytical facts about the market, and a rational plan to sell my home. She gave my wife and I sound advice on how to prepare my home and what to address to garner a quick sales. Once on the market, my house sold in 3 days!! Ann not only helped to prepare my home, she provided in-depth assistance throughout the entire process. While I was on the other side of the country woking in a new position, Ann helped my wife every step of the way. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for my family. If you are buying or selling a home, please choose Ann Adams. She is the best!!

Ann helped us buy our first home. We had started looking for a home with another realtor but ended up looking for a new realtor because it was not working out; this is when we found Ann. Ann was amazing through the whole process; she was very responsive and answered all of our questions. Since this was our first time buying a home, she guided us through the process and made us feel comfortable with it. Because of Ann we can say our first-time home buying experience was very smooth. We would highly recommend her to others.

Having known Ann for over 30 years, I knew about her integrity as a person and friend. From working with her as our realtor in our recent home search and purchase, that integrity is also evident in her work ethic. Ann was very perceptive in deciphering what we were looking for in a home, by listening to our comments and concerns. She found us the perfect house in the perfect setting. Ann is extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of real estate and the current market and with that knowledge and creative thinking, got us our home at the price we wanted. If we had a question that needed answering, Ann though her extensive network had the answer immediately.
I would highly recommend Ann to my family and friends. Her attention to detail is what truly sets her above the rest. We can’t thank you enough Ann!
