    Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 in Ranch Triangle, Chicago, IL.
    Helaine Cohen was my agent when I wanted to buy a house in Chicago recently.

    I have bought houses in the past and have worked with may agents in the past. I can say with out hesitation that she is the best in terms of her knowledge of the filed, her ability to quickly grasp the customer's needs and tastes, expertise in evaluating properties and negotiating on behalf of he client, non-intrusive yet quick responsiveness and establishing trust with her client. She and her assistant Linsey went out of their way not only to find the right house in short order but also to help the whole process and move in. Recommend highly!  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2013.
    Good, out of the 5-6 brokers we started to work with, we selected Helaine and are working with her exclusivelly since. Helaine was able to understand very quickly our targets and setup several visits perfectly aligned with our needs. Helaine was also able to suggest a lawyer and lender we are satisfied with. We already bought 2 units in the loop and are searching for more.  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2012.
    I met Helaine a little over a year ago and she helped me find my first apartment in the city. I was a pretty difficult customer in that I had a lot of criteria I wanted in an apartment that was difficult given my situation. I really wanted a contemporary looking place, highrise only, and a good location because I have a very active dog that I would have to take out at night. The biggest drawback was that my dog was 70 lbs and so that limited a lot of places I liked that we could have looked at since most places in the city have weight limits of 30 lbs or less. Never the less, Helaine took on the challenge and found me a great place in the South Loop. Then, just a few weeks ago, she helped me again in purchasing my first condo in the Financial district. She is very attentive and will know exactly what criteria is important to you just by going with you on your first walk through of several places. After your first meeting, she will be able to select places for you to look at that she knows you would like. And more than anything else, she really cares about the client being satisfied with their new home and does not want anyone to settle. I hope this review gives you a glimpse of how determined and relentless Helaine is at finding you your dream place :)  MoreLess
