Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Oak Brook, IL.
I have had the opportunity to work with Elaine Zannis during the housing market downturn, so my experience spans several years as our house didn't sell due to the market conditions. During the entire time, Elaine remained highly professional. She put a large amount of effort into selling our house through advertising in multiple venues; notifying other agents whom she knew had clients interested in houses like ours; holding many open houses. However, we were living in another state and decided to rent it. Elaine didn't flinch. She happily switched gears and found high quality tenants for us. She handled all the paperwork and got them settled into the house and transitioned the point of contact to us smoothly. She remained a source for all of our questions even while not actively selling the house. Over the course of five years, we called on Elaine to help us with all of our needs and she never disappointed. She was always very honest about market conditions and pricing our home. Elaine consistently brought creativity, honesty, patience and professional conduct to an otherwise very frustrating time for us. I cannot speak too highly of her. She is a very knowledgeable, competent and trustworthy agent.
Elaine breathed life into our home which had been on the market for far too long. She staged the house in an attractive way. She used latest technology and media to present the house in a wonderful way. The result, sale of home, speaks for itself!

Elaine is the consummate professional. Her vast experience in both real estate and high-level business showed as Elaine worked with me to hone the focus of my property search, extensively prepare for real estate opportunities, and negotiate the best deal possible, when the opportunity was discovered. Elaine's outside-the-box thinking unearthed opportunities that others did not see. I highly recommend Elaine to anyone seeking the best real estate services available.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Hinsdale, IL.
Elaine's professional service in helping me decide on a new home or home site was superb. I found her to be extremely responsive, always accepting calls and prompt to respond, not only with me but in her conduct with all of her colleagues. I never felt pressured or that she was exasperated with me as I went back and forth trying to hone what would meet my needs. Not being from the area in which I purchased, her knowledge of the industry as well as the community is deep. She is well connected which is helpful if one is in need of additional services, such as legal or architectural. Not surprisingly, although pleasing, the people she refers are equally qualitative. It's a pleasure to give her an unrestricted endorsement.
Showed home in 2012 in Near North, Chicago, IL 60654.
Elaine Zannis helped me find and purchase a condo in Chicago's downtown River North neighborhood. Elaine provided great listing options that met my requirements for what I was looking for in my new home. This was my fist home purchase and I had lots of questions regarding the process. Elaine guided me through all the steps in purchasing a home and explained everything very well along the way.

Elaine has been an active and successful broker that specializes in the Oak Brook,Hinsdale and Clarendon Hills market. I bought my house with Elaine's help and advise. Her professionalism and intelligence made a complex transaction,involving multiple bidders for the property,smooth and easy.
In a profession where often smooth talk may cover up the lack of real depth,Elaine delivers with aplomb.

Elaine is great at what she does! She brings a passion and professional insight to all the homes we toured with her. Her opinions are invaluable. She made the entire process of finding a home, negotiating a contract and closing on a home so easy and effortless. She dealt with our sometimes narrow-mindedness and grumpiness and was always willing to show us a property at the oddest times on the oddest days. She actually alerted us to the home we ultimately purchased on the first day it came on the market while we were away on vacation and scheduled a showing for us the next day we arrived in town. We were the first to make an offer on the house as other offers poured in. Elaine will work for you and find you the perfect home!!
