Ratings & Reviews

With so many realtors to choose from out there a decision to pick one can be tough! A friend had recommended Josie to my husband and I while we were searching to buy our first home. Josie helped us to really narrow in on the type of home that would suit us best at our point in life. We are so happy with the Wheaton town home that Josie helped us purchase! Josie was available at all hours of the day for us throughout the house hunt and purchasing. We have since our purchase recommended Josie to friends and family and she has not disappointed.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Wheaton, IL.

We listed our Wheaton home with Josie in April of 2010. We were extremely pleased with how Josie marketed the home and provided detailed feedback after showings. Josie's marketing plan produced 3-4 showings per week & she sold our home in under five months in a very tough real estate market. The average market time for a home in our price range was six to nine months at the time. Our house was challenging to sell because it was smaller than most homes in the same price range. Additionally, we left the state for my husband's new job in California months before the house sold. Josie checked on our house after each showing to turn off lights & ensure doors were locked. Most impressive was how Josie guided us during negociations but protected our best interests. Josie loves what she does & it shows in her efforts and attitude.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $550K in Burr Ridge, IL.

When we sold our house in Wheaton, we were given great advice and guidance from our Real Estate Broker, Josie Deriggi. We are able to sell our house quickly and at a good price because in large part we followed her advice to de-clutter and to stage properly. To de-clutter, we removed almost all small artifacts from shelves and counters and even moved out small pieces of furniture. All of this made the home look more spacious. We also did some staging. Some rooms we were using for other or multiple purposes and we simplified to their primary purpose, such as a spare bedroom. We would stage by making the rooms look livable and inviting for their primary purpose. Some small expenditures such as new bedspreads or updated lamps, made a big difference and also was an easy way to make the place more neutral decor and up-to-date.

Especially at time of showings, we did as much as possible to make things look perfect. To do proper de-cluttering and staging, we had to make a few sacrifices. Some things that we needed or liked had to be put away, and extra work had to be done before showings, but we knew these were temporary sacrifices that would improve our chances of not turning off any potential buyers and to maximize the impression of value for the home.
