Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Buffalo Grove, IL.
Very nice experience shopping house with her. She is very professional and dedicated in the whole process. We had a wonderful time with her. She is very patient when we were hesitating and even agreed to give two offers at the same time. She works till very late in the night and still preparing our contract. We appreciated a lot. We will definitely refer her to our friends who will need help.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Gurnee, IL.
I have worked with several relators over the years and Kay is by far the best I ever worked with. She is very professional and took all the stress out of selling a home. In todays market you need someone who understands how to properly market your home. She took the time to help stage my home, get professional pictures of the home and marketed to all the different channels of todays websites/social media to ensure that my home was being seen by the most potential buyers out there. I was also very impress with the sale price I got. She did all the negotiating for me and took all the stress out of the process. I know people complain about the percentage of what relators get from sales of home but she was worth every penny. She is my relator going forward on any and will refer her to anyone I know that needs a relator. I promise you will not be disappoint going with her.

One of the joys that I get from this crazy real estate world is successfully helping people downsize and getting them to their next phase. It was such a joy to work with Rob & Pat on this deal. I would consider this transaction to have gone as smoothly as one could ever expect. It takes a village to get a house sold these days and when your Sellers are as terrific as these clients were, my job is way more fun! Thanks Rob & Pat! :)

Not that I play favorites, but honestly, you guys were one of my favorites! So much fun. Think about how discouraged you guys were and about to give up when I sent you that email that said we really need to go and see "this one!" Glad you were open to it!

Sold a home in 2014.
Kay is the best realtor that I met so far and I have worked with few in the past. She helped us to sell our house in Mundelein in a very short period of time. She is 100% committed, very patient, available all the time, very responsive, reasonable and very caring. She spent nights trying to finalize our deal, we had many complications during the process and she did everything possible to make it happen. It really makes a different who is your realtor, I have been sharing my experience with few of my friends that are going through the process right now and they are amazed at the things Kay did for us.

Kay's enthusiasm, work ethic, energy, and warm, but no-nonsense demeanor make her a great realtor to sell your house. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to sell/buy a house.

We love you Kay and please stay in touch!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Lake Bluff, IL.
My friend Joy recommended Kay to me. Kay become my agent to sell my house within days. She is very professional and well experienced on real estate. She help me design the painting and all remodeling works before it was on the market. She even showed me where to buy reasonable material. She is very quick to response to me email, phone call and any questions i had. The most important thing is she thinks about client, not herself which impressed me. I already recommend her to my two friends. She also recommended a handyman to me which is very honest and responsible.

Anna, I so enjoyed our time working together. I wish everyone who head your words of wisdom to take these suggestions. Selling your home for over $5K of listing price was proof in the pudding! :) Can't wait until you get back from China so we can have our lunch! Safe travels my friend. :)

Larry & MJ, all my transactions are important to me but sometimes the people involved make a bigger impact on me. You & Larry were just those. I am very proud to have walked this journey with you to get the home sold so that you guys can start your "golden years" all nice and down-sized with a lot less worry. God bless you both and let's stay in touch! :)

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in South Barrington, IL.
Kay recently helped us buy a property in the South Barrington, IL area. We have purchased several properties in the past and dealt with a half a dozen real estate agents and Kay easily excels them all by a huge margin. My wife and I had never imagined that dealing with a buyer’s agent could be so pleasant and rewarding.

Kay came highly recommended by our trusted mortgage banker and we were NEVER disappointed during the whole process of a very complicated home purchase. Our needs and many of our requirements were very specific, and we ended up with what we were looking for after viewing 25+ homes in sub-zero weather. She stayed with us the whole time and did not pull back or slow down in any way. Kay is extremely knowledgeable, professional, an effective negotiator, and very personable.

Over and above these necessary qualities, what helped us most was her patience, tenacity, cheerfulness and absolute commitment to her client’s needs and satisfaction. Her advice to us was always helpful to keep us focused. No detail is too small for Kay. She was a big emotional support to my wife and me through many anxious moments. Her judgment is quick and sharp. She was always looking after our interests and was never pushy. We were able to freely discuss our needs with her and had full confidence that she would work hard to find just the right home for us. She is an amazing real estate professional and a very pleasant person. We think she is the best and would highly recommend her for any serious buyer.

We now have a beautiful home. Thank you so much, Kay, for all your support and a job well done.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Gurnee, IL.
Kay is the best realtor we have ever worked with and we have moved ore than a half dozen times. Her knowledge of the local market is unmatched. Her its on staging our home for presentation were simple but made such a difference. It was amazing. Kay and her team are true professionals and so friendly. Her advise on pricing the home and handling the details was outstanding and spot on. If you want to sell your home, Kay is the person you want to call. Our home was only on the market two or three days and we had an offer based on her super marketing of our home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Mundelein, IL.
We had met Kay about four years ago at an open house in Libertyville. We signed her guestbook, and just recently received a ad from her promoting her services as a Realtor. Fortunately, we were just about to begin our search for a house, so we held onto the card until we were ready to start the process. Our plan was to sell our primary residence as well as rental property we also owned in the area. We listed both properties with Kay. Kay counseled us on the proper ways to stage both properties, as well as price points and related issues. She got us all hooked up with the electronic means to list, sell, purchase and monitor all of the processes simultaneously. And, we bought one, sold two and are very happy.

Kay is very knowledgeable and very personable. While she is a true workaholic, she always finds the time to take calls, return calls and keep us up to speed on the progress being made. We are certain that her help with the staging made a huge difference in our sale. I would not want to go through the process again without Kay leading the way.
