Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Elmhurst, IL.
Patricia DiCianni listed our home in December 2013 and it sold in 10 days at a price we were satisfied with. She had previously given us suggestions for making it ready for showing, and that really helped. Everything "Tricia" did was very professional, including the house description, the advice she offered, the negotiations, and the closing process. She helped us be realistic and keep our emotions in check. Plus, her commission was less than what most realtors would have charged us -- that was the icing on the cake.
When we started looking for new homes, we decided to have her help us after we were unsatisfied with another realtor. Tricia was super in this regard also. She was always on time meeting us places, and helped us evaluate potential homes. She wasn't pushy just to make a sale; it was obvious that she really cared. One home we might have fallen in love with, she quickly determined had some major issues that we would not have noticed. She was very patient with us when we needed it. We are now settled into the home that she knew we would like and she was right. Because we asked her to show it to us, she offered us more in rebate than the Redfin agent had offered. She also helped us tremendously in recommending service people who helped us with Radon testing, etc. in our old house, and with fine tuning some things in our new house.
Some of our negotiations occurred right over the holidays, but she was always quick to respond.
There were a couple last minute issues that needed to be resolved in both our buy and our sell. While we may have been "particular" customers, Tricia never lost patience with us. She was always pleasant, and we're very grateful to her for all she did. As high a recommendation as we could give.

Tricia is incredibly knowledgeable about the community, and is very responsive to questions. Her ability to hone in on what our needs and wants were and what would make us a good home were amazing. I would recommend Tricia to anyone buying or selling and intend to use her services again.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Elmhurst, IL.
Tricia helped us land a great lot in Elmhurst that now has a beautiful home on it. My wife and I are both sure that without her we would have missed out on this opportunity. She realized right away that this property was exactly what we were looking for and was quick to secure a contract and closing date. She even worked with the bank, the property was a repossession, to make sure we had a clean title.
Tricia helped us sell our house during a very difficult market time. She worked very hard to make sure we stayed competetive with our pricing while not compromising the value of our home or the gain that we desired. Her knowledge of the Elmhurst area, the market and her colleagues in the industry were instrumental in our sale. Selling your home can feel very personal and Tricia flawlessly combined her caring nature with her impressive professionalism. We also bought a property using Tricia, and her firm negotiating style helped us get the price we wanted. We would use her exclusively for any real estate transactions in the future.
Working with Tricia was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and spent time getting to know what we were interested in, then suggested several different properties. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for! Tricia answered all of our questions and made sure we received the best possible deal. She made the entire process relaxed and pleasant. We would recommend Tricia to anyone looking to buy a home.
Bought a Condo home in 2008 in South Hill, Bellingham, WA.
Tricia went above and beyond when helping us buy our home. We had a quick closing which would normally be very stressful, but having Tricia as our agent everything turned out as planned. She was accountable, informative, and honest during our search for our home.
Tricia DiCianni is the most helpful agent! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a realtor that wants to please her clients. She is prompt, professional, and most of all excellent at what she does. Tricia listened to what we were looking for and gave us many suggestions that were helpful in buying a home. She was wonderful!
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $525K in Elmhurst, IL.
My Wife and I used Tricia as our buying agent. We both have bought and sold several properties. She was the absolute best agent we had ever worked with. She helped us through the whole process of buying the home of our dreams in Elmhurst. If you need an honest, thoughtful and hard working agent Tricia is the one for you.
