Ratings & Reviews

It is difficult to effectively communicate how good Yvonne was as our Real Estate agent. My family and I were in a difficult spot as we had just moved back from London and needed to quickly find a house. <br/><br/>Yvonne's knowledge of the area - including schools, shopping, neighbourhoods, parks, sports, traffic patterns, and more was excellent. She quickly helped us focus our search and showed us a number of excellent homes to choose from. Ultimately we chose a house that Yvonne was able to get us a viewing within hours of the house goingon the market. <br/><br/>She then worked effectively in a competitive market – providing several excellent tips – to promote our offer and ultimately get it accepted. <br/><br/>Finally – as the sellers were using a relocation agent – there were numerous difficult logistics to manage. Yvonne was a bulldog in ensuring that everything kept moving and the relocation company fulfilled all of their obligations. As a result of Yvonne’s hard work – everything progressed on schedule and we were able to move into our home without any outstanding issues. This is my fourth house purchase and I have never worked with anyone as professional, knowledgeable and most importantly as effective as Yvonne. <br/><br/>All-in-all – I can comfortably highly recommend Yvonne.

Thank you Rob and Annette! I enjoyed working with you both - and this is the one time that one of my clients used their "cousin the attorney" - and it was awesome! Most of the time when clients have worked with relatives who are attorneys - but don't really know real estate law - it's messy to put it mildly. Your cousin was terrific - and it runs in the family!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Wheaton, IL.

Yvonne's upbeat and peppy personality combined with her sharpened realtor skills allowed us to have an easy sell/buy experience. She was always available to us and typically drove us for our house hunt - to an area for which she was less familiar. She also had wonderful advice regarding the sale of our home and got it sold quickly. While we, at times, were emotional about the process, she always maintained her poise and was helpful in calming our nerves. Selling and buying a home is a complicated and personal process! We would absolutely recommend her to our friends and family as well as any others searching for an expert realtor.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Wheaton, IL.

We wholeheartedly recommend Yvonne Rusin! She is not only extremly knowledgable about the areas in which she works but of the entire market and where your home will need to be priced in order to sell. She will then work to market your home in a way that appeals to all buyers looking in your price range. We had three buyers bidding for our house ! She goes the extra mile for you and then some. You will not find anyone better or more qualified to sell your home.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Lisle, IL.

My mother passed away and left a home that needed to be sold. My sister and I met with several realtors before we found Yvonne. Once we met with her, we knew she was the right choice. As executor, my situation was not only complicated, but very emotional. Yvonne made the entire process flow smoothly. Her expertise, professionalism and genuine kindness made me feel like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. Her marketing plan for selling our home was perfect and it sold faster than I ever expected. Yvonne's knowledge and personality are priceless!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Naperville, IL.

After meeting with a few other Realtors there was no doubt in our mind that Yvonne was the right choice. She had successful sold a home in our neighborhood in less than a week and we were hopeful for the same results, though we did not expect them. She delivered. We began working with Yvonne two months before getting our home on the market and she was great from start to finish. From making wise recommendations on where and how to update our home without spending thousands of dollars to offering staging materials of her own Yvonne was always on target.

She was always brutally honest with us and worked to manage our expectations and again she delivered. Our home hit the market Friday morning and we had a signed contract by Sunday night. We believe we got the best price possible- full asking price- and the entire process went as smooth as possible. Yvonne knew the market to say the least. Our home sold for the appraisal value, quickly and she skillfully negotiated the first solid offer to avoid a bidding war.

The only negative was we had to find a new home in less than a week! From looking at homes until 9 p.m. to showing up at our sons soccer game to take us house hunting afterwards, Yvonne was always there for us and felt like a friend. Again she helped us negotiate a great deal on our new home and we felt so much better when mistakes made where never on our end. She was prepared and had us prepared. Very professional and always and advocate!

This was our third time selling a home and our fourth purchase. I have never recommended a Realtor before and have already shared Yvonne's name with several others looking to buy and sell.

Yvonne is outstanding in all aspects of locating and purchasing a home! She is truly a pleasure to work with because of her consummate professionalism and customer service. On a Friday evening we looked at one of her listings, just to get the ball rolling. We then spent the next 2.5 hours at her office detailing the area and type home that I was looking to purchase. Using a combination of her area expertise, industry technology, and keen probing questions, we were able identify 26 potential properties. The next day we looked at a "hot" property that she discovered through her network. We closed in 30-days! Throughout the whole process she kept me updated on the status and answered any questions I had. Not only that, but she kept sending me comps of new activity within the area. Yvonne's motto of "love where you live" is tailor-made for her. I wish that I knew more people in the area that are looking to buy homes - I would recommend Yvonne all day long!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Yvonne is a true professional who knew what it would take to sell the property. She was involved in multiple properties that I had interest in. She managed the process from all angles and was involved all the way through the closes.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Yvonne is an extremely bright, determined, professional who knows precisely what it takes to sell your home. She is detail oriented and always on top of every aspect of the process. She also has all the resources you need to assist in preparing your home for sale. (Her stagers are amazing!)

I have bought and sold many homes in this area and have never felt in better hands than when I was working with Yvonne.
