Bought a Single Family home in 1998 for approximately $200K in West Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.
Joan Katz sold me my house back in 1998. I still tell the story from time to time. I was living in an apartment down in Ravenswood Manor. Joan had shown us many houses but none really filled all of our requirements. We were looking seriously for about a year and then we just kind of let it go after being unsuccessful during that year. Well ANOTHER year went by and Joan called us.on a Thursday. She said, "I just found your house." Sure enough, it was just what we were looking for. Right price, Right size, Right location. Joan found our house and we love it to this day.
Joan is wonderful. She looks out for her clients and is very patient. I didn't buy from her but it wasn't her fault. I just got priced out of Chicago as I had a modest amount to spend. I would highly recommend Joan for her knowledge of the city and helpfulness to the bewildered.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in West Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.
We were very impressed with Joan initially, and we listed the house with her. However, after more than 3 months, we received no interest and no explanation from Joan. Attempts to reach her by phone and email were frustrating. Even after pulling the listing, it took several weeks for Joan to respond to multiple requests to return our keys and pick up her sign and lock box. We were extremely disappointed and hope that this was just a fluke. We believe her to be an honest and good person, but she really wasn't meeting our needs.
