Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Grayslake, IL.
Working with Anna was such a pleasure. She made sure that everything went smoothly, and took care of nearly everything for us, making our first home purchase a breeze. Anna helped us understood the process, too. We really appreciated how available she was, fielding phone calls at all times of the day to schedule visits and answer any random questions we had. When it came time to make an offer, Anna talked through the strategy we should use, considering comparable properties, and finding ways to justify the number we wanted. It worked like a charm! Anna is such a positive and friendly person to work with, and she has a great sense of humor. We wish we could do it all again! We couldn't imagine ever using someone else for when we sell/buy our next house.

Anna is an amazing professional who knows the local market and provided the information we needed to know as sellers. She kept us informed, was always responsive to our calls and let us know when it was time to consider changes in our sales strategy. We sold in a tough market and are very glad we chose Anna to work with. She is not only a good individual she is very dedicated to the work she does and to her clients.

Anna is a SUPER STAR she helped thru the trials and tribulations of a difficult Short Sale. She obtained several offers in a difficult market and was able to negotiate an extremely fair sale price considering the area and subdivision. I had my house listed with another company/agent for almost a year with few offers and limited activity, I started to believe there was no hope. I noticed Anna's adds and started doing some research to discover she is an extremely talented agent. She accepted my challenge and stayed in constant communication with me and the lender. In my opinion her knowledge of the market and area are second to none. I highly recommend her for any real estate need or challenge!

I have worked with Anna twice in the past couple of years. First she represented me during the sale of my home and did a great job closing the deal quickly and for a fair selling price. More recently, Anna represented my husband and I during the purchase of our new home and managed to salvage a deal that was on the verge of falling apart. We brought her in when we realized that we needed the help of a pro. She completely turned the situation around. She did very thorough research for us and took the time to present our case to the sellers. In the end we purchased the home we love and are on really good terms with the sellers. It could not have worked out better - truly a win-win transaction.
Working with Anna was amazing! She has strong knowledge of the real estate process and is a very good communicator. I was impressed by her ability to be a tough negotiator while understanding the human side of real estate.

Anna was of great help to us when searching for a new home. She listened closely to what we were looking for in a home and helped to guide our search based on our needs. Anna was even more helpful once we made an offer. That was when her skills were highlighted. In the negotiation process, you definitely want Anna on your side! It was comforting knowing that Anna had our best interests in mind, regarding the inspection results, attorney responsibilities, contingencies, etc. She was a pleasure to work with.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Mundelein, IL.
Anna was such a pleasure to work with. Her energy, enthusiam and interest really shows that she has a personal investment in her clients. She had a very timely response to any inquiries we had. When we viewed properties she gave us the space we needed to explore without following at our heels or trying to "talk-up" the property. The homes we were interested in did require lots of TLC. Anna would point out the quality attributes of the homes, providing suggestions on ideas for improvements while being respectful of our budget. She kept us informed on the status of our offer over the several days of negotiations. Everything went seamlessly with her attention to detail. She is the type of professional that will follow-up before, during and after the process has been completed. I would consider Anna asset in her field.

House was sold in less than 4 months! In today's market, that is a miracle. Anna's professionalism and knowledge was immediately noticed on our initial interview. She guided us through the whole process, encouraging us with timely information and a strategy that got our house sold. Anna is nothing short of "THE BEST!"

Anna is quite simply, the best! Friendly and professional she took time to understand both our home and our situation. She kept us informed via e-mail, phone, when appropriate, and with periodic personal visits. She worked both for us and with us to sell our home and offered extremely helpful counsel on price adjustments, offers and steps to close the deal. In a difficult market Anna was clearly "our agent" and we never felt like there were any other properties she was working to sell. We felt "first" on her list. You can't do better!

Both my daughter and I have worked with Anna, for over 12 years, to buy and sell our homes. You could look long and hard and still not find someone as competent as Anna. She involves herself 100% from the very start to the very end of every purchase or sale. We know that we could not be in better hands. She is truly a joy to work with!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Round Lake Beach, IL.
I was a first time home buyer with an idea of what I wanted and no idea how to get it. Anna was able to help me through the process in a very friendly manner. She helped me make sense of anything and everything that was confusing throughout the process and helped me to find and purchase the best home for my family's needs. She was patient and curtious throughout the experience. Anna never wasted our time with homes either out of our price range or that did not meet our standards. She truly seemed interested in helping us find the perfect home for us and not just one that was okay. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone begining ot navigat the real estate marketplace.
