Connie couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I highly recommend her without reservation. I really appreciated the way she would point out both good features and potentially concerning features of houses. She genuinely wanted us to find a great house that met our needs. I would definitely use Connie again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in La Grange Park, IL.
As first-time buyers, I doubt we could have worked with a realtor who was more patient, informed or responsive. Connie really got it when it came to what we were looking for, and kept her eye on houses she knew might be a fit for us. Looking at houses together felt like going with a family member and we knew she had our best interests in mind when it came time to negotiate with the seller, and even during our walk through the morning we bought our house. And on top of it, Connie is just a lovely person.

Connie Tomlinson is a wonderful Realtor! We were lost trying to find a home until we started working with her. She is very knowledgeable about buying a home and what the process entails. More importantly,she is very helpful about what to look for in a new home. She saw many, many houses with us and was always prepared with any questions we might have had. She let us make our own opinions and offered expert advice when we asked. She also warned us of things we might have missed such as flood plains.We found the perfect first home for our family and couldn't be happier!
Connie's years of real estate experience are evident in her interactions with clients. She is always professional in her interactions. Connie's advice when we listed our house for sale was spot on. We sold quickly at our asking price. Our search for a new home included the need for interim rental housing. She was there to assist us with both. She offered excellent advice on negotiating the purchase price for our new home. We would highly recommend Connie Tomlinson as a realtor.
I live out of state and was selling my mother's house in Indian Head Park. Connie helped me with suggestions on changes to make before we listed it. She had to go the extra mile since I was out of town and could only come in 1-2 times per month. We had a contract in less than a week and she helped through every step of the negotiations and was truly invaluable throughout the process.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Western Springs, IL.
Connie was always well informed about the area's listings and actual transactions. This great sense of the local market helped us as sellers to make realistic decisions about price and terms. Connie was also very good about pointing out the advantages of our location and its place in the community to any potential buyers. Finally, even during slow market periods Connie always seemed to have plenty of showings planned attesting to her active promotion of our property.
Connie took the time to take us to multiple properties until we found the house that became our home. She put us in touch with a great lender. Once my wife and I made the decision to put a bid in on our home she continued to negotiate with the seller until late into the evening (past 8:30 p.m.) until we reached a great price. Once the price was set, she put us in touch with experienced professionals to handle our inspection and pre-purchase testing. Connie is not only a great realtor, she is a great friend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Brookfield, IL.
Connie was always there when we needed her. We were faced with selling the parent's home and very overwhelmed. She always returned phone calls promptly, had a great referral list for professionals when we needed them and most of all, really cared about the people she was working for. We are planning on using her when we seek our house.
