Bought a home in 2009.
Carol Hoefer is the real estate agent everyone should have. Mary and I were retired and we were moving from the East Coast to IL to be closer to family. This was not a business move. We spoke with more than one agent, and selected Carol. Carol understood the reason for our potential move and what we were looking for in the way of a house and neighborhood. We gave Carol the specifics of what we wanted - size of house, must be a ranch, number of bedrooms & bathrooms, must have a large enclosed/heated space for woodworking shop, minimum 2 car attached garage, large yard, type of neighborhood relative to streets & density of homes, condition of the home, etc. Carol quickly identified several homes early in the week and on Thursday we were ready to make an offer. This is where Carol's expertise and knowledge of realestate and business realy began to shine. With Carol's guidance we made an offer late Wednesday and had an agreement the next afternoon - Thursday. Carol then arranged a Friday AM home inspection and put us in touch with an attorney that could work with us and meet our end of month closing date. All of this in less than a week. Over the next two weeks we spoke with Carol and our attorney on a regular basis to enssure all information, reports, finanacing, etc necessary for closing was properly prepared and available. The closing took place without any problems. We have remained friends with Carol since we purchased our home and have trusted her enough to asked her for help and assistance with a number of items.

This last sentence containing the words "friend" and "trust" say it all.

We would recomend Carol without any reservation,and if we ever purcchase another home in this general area you can be sure we will use Carol.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Crystal Lake, IL.
We were moving from the east coast to IL and had 1 week to find a home. Carol was willing to give us the attention needed to successfully make that happen. Prior to our arrival we were given the opportunity to view numerous listings online and rate them. This helped greatly in weeding out homes that would have wasted our time in viewing. Carol was instrumental in helping to expedite our closing in IL with our closing out of state. She is very well connected in the area!

Sold a home in 2014.
Carol is the best realtor. She listens, shows only what is relevant and works hard for people. She helped me sell my town-home quickly. The sign went up Tuesday and we had an offer on Friday. We had been looking at homes for me to buy for several months so once my offer was set, we were able to move quickly to obtain a perfect downsized unit. I found her to be not only fair and honest, but helpful and extremely knowledgeable.

Sold a home in 2014.
Carol has been our relator for a number of homes we've bought and sold over the years. Even in tough market conditions she's worked to sell our homes for close to asking price and as importantly, quickly. She's always looked out for our best interest and has done a good job "marketing" our properties, most recently using a professional photograhper.

Carol works tirelessly and will track down what is outstanding and needs to be done to get to the closing date. She takes a personal interest in her clients in wanting to make sure the home and area are a good fit for what we have looked for over the years.

Carol is a true professional as well as a warm and caring individual. We would highly recommend her for anyone buying or selling a property.

Sold a home in 2014.
When you prepare to sell your home in a short sell, it is important that you find the right Realtor to work with. You want someone who is professional and knowledgeable about the local market and who is an expert in distress proprieties. It is also important that this individual be trustworthy and have impeccable work ethic. We found all of these qualities in our dear friend Carol Hoefer. She is very knowledgeable. A good Realtor will listen to your concerns and then incorporate them into your goals. Carol was so helpful in not only selling our property but also finding and negotiating on our new property. We always felt that Carol had our best interest. Carol is a true professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Crystal Lake, IL.
Carol did an excellent job selling our house. She has such a positive attitude that it's contagious and makes the whole process seem much easier. Prior to working with Carol, we had a deal fall through on our house two days before closing. We were devastated and decided to switch to RE/MAX and chose Carol Hoefer as our agent. She helped us stage our house and quickly get it back on the market. Unfortunately, it was winter and not the best time to be showing a house, but Carol even took it upon herself to make a beautiful large picture board of summer pictures I had given her of our yard and landscaping, and put it right on the kitchen counter so everyone could see. We truely believe that helped sell our house. When we did get a contract on our house, Carol stayed a step ahead of everything. We are very happy to have had such a professional person work with us and strongly recommend Carol. If you want someone who really cares, Carol Hoefer is the one for you.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Lakemoor, IL.
Carol was absolutely wonderful to work with. Our situation left us with less than a month to find a place and move. Carol went above an beyond to help us find the perfect place. She scoured the areas we were interested in and called each and every agent/owner to get the process going as soon as possible. Although we know that finding our new home was due to a higher power, Carol's efforts made all the difference. She was caring and compassionate on top of being highly skilled and knowledgeable. She truly made a stressful time in our lives go as smooth as anyone could hope for and we would undoubtedly recommend her to anyone in the market. Can't say enough. Thank you Carol, from the bottom of our hearts.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Crystal Lake, IL.
Carol is probably the best Realtor to go to in the area she covers for short sales as well as regular sales. If you are contemplating short sales or distressed property sales, she is the most knowledgable and helpful person to see. What's more, she has the best personality and friendliness of anyone I know. She found a buyer for me, stuck through the process with me for the many months the short sale took, and was very reassuring when I was concerned. The sale ultimately went through and I owe a debt of gratitude to her for her hard work and tenacity. She even helped my son and daughter in law find a wonderful place when they were under the gun to relocate. I can't speak highly enough of or recommend her enough to anyone in the real estate market.
