Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Gurnee, IL.
When my husband and I found out we would have to move to Lake County we we're overwhelmed and didn't know how to start the process of looking for houses. We found Anna through a google search and chose her because of her great reviews. From the very first phone call I knew we had chosen the right person. Anna took such good care of us from the start to the finish, from quick replies to emails and texts to doing extensive searches on our behalf. She took the time to get to know us and our family's needs to find just the right home. What I loved about Anna- she's dependable, she's responsive, she has loads of knowledge of Lake County and she's very friendly with her clients. We absolutly recommend Anna and will be working with her in the future!

Anna Klarck is a highly profeesional, well knowledgable and personable realtor that made us feel like friends during the home buying process. Not only is Anna the best at what she does, she understands the stress and emotions during the process and treated us like people, not just a customer number. Our home purchase was not straight forward and required additional necessary steps. Anna not only made us aware of the steps but walked us through each one to ensure we felt comfortable. Originally, we made an offer on a house that was rejected due to a closing date that was too far in the future for the sellers. In the meantime, we searched for other properties, however understanding our needs and taste, Anna did not "waste" our time showing us houses she knew we would not consider. Even properties we prompted her to show us, Anna stayed true and agreed to show them but understood that they probably would not live up to our standards. Throughout the search process we kept coming back to the house we originally made an offer on. Without prompting, Anna went above and beyond and actively stayed in touch with the selling realtor to ensure we were front and center if the opportunity presented itself. As it turns out, the opportunity did present itself and we were the first people contacted. Not only did Anna help us find our dream home, she fought for us when it appeared we were not going to get it. In addition to Anna's expertise, she also partnered us up with Great Lake Home Mortgage for the financial aspect. Great Lakes staff of knowledgable and responsive staff made the mortgage process "painless' and before we knew it, we were in our "dream home". Not only is Anna the best at what she does, she partners herself with compitent and trustworthy partners like GLHM. I will be telling everyone I know, who is interested in selling or buying property to use Anna Klarck because not only will she fight for you in all aspects of the process but she understands people and makes the process as enjoyable and exciting as possible... which it should be.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Gurnee, IL.
Came to her after a poor experience with another realtor who was not listening to the needs I had for my new home, and was very difficult to reach by phone, text or email. A friend gave me Anna's number as a recommendation, and the first house we visited was the one. We still went to all 10 homes on that first day, but nothing compared to the first home she showed.

Anna is amazing!! She is full of energy. Her enthusiastic personality, motivation and knowledge is unbelievable. Anna helped us sell our home and purchase a new one. We didn't have easy transactions on either end, but Anna took care of everything. She was there for us every step of the way. She responded to our phone calls and emails immediately every time. She promptly followed up on every transaction and question we had. She was a great negotiator. We couldn't have been happier with her recommendations for RE Lawyer, Loan Officer and Home Inspector either. Everything Anna told us came true:) We highly recommend her and thank her so much for all she did.............Britta & John
Anna is a great realtor. She is strong in all areas of buying and selling homes, but her greatest strengths are in negotiation and in supporting her clients during what can be a challenging time in people's lives. Anna is focused, knowledgeable, supportive, and energetic. I refer my own clients to her as I know they will be well served by her. I give her the highest recommendation as a realtor.
I'd like to think that as a result of having spent my career of 30 plus years in the Hospitality Industry, I'm able to read most people almost instantly. It's actually a skill one needs to develop in order to be successful in the Hotel/CountryClub/Restaurant business.
All of that to say...I've met many, many people.
And when I met Anna Klarck, I was struck by her authenticity. Ms. Klarck was one of the few people I've ever met, whose open honesty was absolutely genuine.
Everything an individual like Anna does is special. Sadly, I have only gotten to know her on a Real Estate business basis. But i can tell you that it was indeed a special experience.
The sale of my home was complicated, to say the very least. AND the buyers agent (who they did disclose) happened to be his non-English speaking wife. This being the case, Anna did the work for this completely incompetent woman. And in doing so, allowed my husband and I to meet the deadline for a bank deal that meant a considerable amount of money. Anna gained absolutely nothing extra by working so hard. She did it for us.
That is special. People in business generally do not work hard unless there's something in it for them.
Anna Klarck is a quality human being. Her integrity, competence and work ethic are indeed rare to find these days. In any profession.
For the above stated reasons, working with Anna was a exceptional experience. But what made the experience even more amazing to me, was how much she really cared.
Anna secured my house for my family in 2004 at the height of the market. A couple had beat me to the punch with an offer that came in before mine. Through careful negotiation and quick action (on a Sunday afternoon no less!), Anna closed the deal for me! Having a Realtor that pays attention to the details and then acts upon them can make all the difference in getting what you want.. If you want action and a closed deal, call Anna!
Anna really has been an excellent realtor. I know when reading reviews a lot of people will say the same kind if things however anna really is one of a kind. She is very responsive, knowledgeable, and more importantly she is completely honest with her clients. If something needs to be changed she will let you know. She truly acts as a business partner and one thst really cares about your successful sale as if it were her own home.
I will never recommend any other realtor besides anna because in my opinion you simply wont have a realtor as good as her.
I am one to critic showing both positives and negatives, I however have no negatives for anna, there arent any at all.
From the first moment we met Anna we knew right away she would do whatever it took to find the home with the specifications we were looking for. Her warm personality and honesty would have us recommend her to anyone. We were very pleased with the whole process. Thank you. Patrick and Chalom Revord.
