Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Old Irving Park, Chicago, IL.
Izabela is amazing, caring, trustworthy and extremely dedicated and very easy to talk to. She is super responsive, she will return my email, text or phone call immediately. Always keeping track and sending updates of new houses on the market. She doesn't pressure me to buy and if I don't like the homes I see, she says, " Don't worry we will keep looking until you find something no matter how long it takes.". That's one of the important qualities I like about Izabela, but the most important quality I have found in Izabela is her honesty. I completely trust her. When I don't understand something she will explain it over and over until I do. She looks out for me. She doesn't mess around and nobody can BS her when it comes to the quality of work that has been done to a home. She's on top of everything. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!!
I really, really appreciate everything she has done for me.
Bought a home in 2014 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL 60618.
Izabela was a GREAT help and we highly recommend her. She has been doing this for a long time & has a lot of resources at her disposal that can help in the process, especially for first time buyers. She pointed out a lot of little things that we likely would have missed on our own. She was always VERY quick to respond, a major plus.
Izabela is a realtor who will go above and beyond to help her clients. She spent countless hours with us helping us find our home. Even during the moments when we wanted to give up searching, there she was with another list of homes for us to see. Even after our bid had been accepted and we were trudging through the home-buying process, she was there for us. If we had a question, she answered it. If we had a concern, she addressed it. Basically, if you're wanting to buy a home, Izabela will make sure it happens for you. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat, no hesitation.
Izabel Sloma is very responsive- quick to return email and phone calls and super fast at answering any questions. She really understands the local neighborhoods and knows what is important to each customer- so she knows the best apartments to show you (or how to get you the best price for your house if you're selling). Highly recommend!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Montclare, Chicago, IL.
It was a pleasure working with Izabela every step of the way. She is knowledgeable and shares information in a way that the client can understand. She keeps in contact with the client and is quick to return calls and answer any questions. I would recommend her for first time buyers as well as for anyone else looking to buy or sell. It is reassuring to have Izabela on your corner, she will have your best interest in mind!!
Bought a home in 2011 in Montclare, Chicago, IL 60707.
The best Realtor ever. Iza has a personal approach and she is always following up. She was never tired with difficult situations. She is also very knowledgeable about her work. She loves what she is doing.
Izabela was the sellers agent on the house that we bought. She made herself available for showings even when we did not give much advanced notice. She helped us through the inevitable "issues" that arise in the process of home buying and got back to us in a timely manner. Even after we had closed, we had a major issue with the house on A Sunday and we did not know who to call. We called her and she got someone over to help us right away.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Margate Park, Chicago, IL.
Izabela is more than accommodating. Seeing a property without her is a waste of time because she comes with a lot of knowledge. She is not afraid to represent clients and ask tough questions. She does the footwork and is true to the heart of your interests.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.7M in Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL.
I first met Izabela when my husband and I were house-hunting a few years ago. She represented several of the properties we looked at and was the seller's agent for the home we eventually purchased. We ended up using her to sell the same home and for the purchase of our next home.
It's rare to call your seller's agent after a home-buying experience, but I knew I wanted to use Izabela the next time around. During our initial dealings with her from "the other side," I couldn't help but notice her poise and confidence without being aggressive. She came across as honest but street smart at the same time.
I called her a year ago when we were thinking of eventually selling our home and buying a luxury home because we were so impressed with her professionalism, intelligence and her connections to both prospective buyers for our home and to the home building community. I also trusted she had a very good knowledge of the luxury home market in which we were looking, and she did not disappoint.
Izabela met with me to ascertain what we wanted in our next home and house hunted with us over several months. We covered the entire geographic market for homes in our price range and desired location! Even when we at one point changed our mind about buying a home, she was very patient and professional and did not pressure us into continuing because of her time investment.
Eventually we found a home that fit our requirements, and through Izabela we found a team to renovate the home. In the meantime, she listed our current home and had ten prospective buyers the first day it hit the market without so much as a "for sale" sign up! Her marketing efforts were spectacular; the NY Times even called wanting to feature our home in their real estate section because they liked the online pictures so much.
She was upfront, honest and respectful throughout the negotiation process as we worked to sell our home. She had referrals for repair technicians where tweaks were needed and made sure the jobs were done properly. In the end, our house is being sold for more than we purchased it thanks to her hard work and its location and condition.
My husband and I felt very comfortable with Izabela's knowledge of the luxury home market, new construction home market and her geographic knowledge of the City of Chicago. We really enjoyed her client service and personal warmth and would highly recommend her.
