Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Oakwood Hills, IL.

Carol and her network of partners were a Godsend when I bought my house. Without her guidance, knowledge and connections, I don't know if that deal gets done. She still keeps in touch over 2 years later and has offered assistance in numerous ways, including lowering my property taxes and keeping the wife informed with the latest home decor trends. I highly recommend Carol to any and all looking to buy or sell a house.  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Rolling Meadows, IL.

This is the second transaction we've done with Carol. She helped us navigate the short sale home we purchased and then helped sell our townhouse after the short sale home purchase went through. She is efficient, fabulous with communication and always ready to give her knowledgable opinion. If ever we move again, Carol will be the first person we call. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Park Ridge, IL.

Carol worked with us for several months, helping us buy our first home. Her experience and expertise was instrumental in helping us avoid several pitfalls-- from a scary home inspection to a tricky title transfer. Carol Best is a tireless worker and a true professional. We highly recommend her!
