BRIX Group With Paul Chadwick (9 years experience)
Terrific experience working with Leslie and team. As inexperienced sellers/buyers it was important that we work with an agent willing to slow down the process, explain the what/why and answer our many questions. Leslie was easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and in general made us feel at ease with everything. Working with Leslie and team to update and stage our home helped us get an acceptable offer within one week of listing, which allowed us to move quickly on purchasing a home that had already been on the market...without that quick sale, our new home might not have been around when we were ready to make a move. I'd recommend Leslie to anyone, it was a pleasure.

Paul provided excellent insight to the location we purchased our home in. Also, he was mindful of our home being resold in the future. We are first time home buyers and Paul walked right through every step of the way. He kept on top of all parties involved which allowed us to close in 30 days.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Elgin, IL.
Anyone who has experienced the frustration of moving can understand the pain of working with people who aren't honest and don't listen to your needs when you're looking for a new house. Well - then you meet Paul. He is the diamond in the rough! He was very receptive to helping me, and always flexible with my schedule when I had to change times. He was very nice and very patient with me. Most of all, Paul is so honest - and that is more than I can say for many others, He is trustworthy. He listened to my needs, and presented me with a wonderful house that I did, indeed, love as he said I would.
Paul is the best. I am picky, too...I highly recommend him and will use him again when the time comes.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Batavia, IL.
It was a pleasure to work with Paul. He offered his expertise in a number of areas during the entire process. From pricing the home to sell, to taking very professional and appealing photographs, suggesting repair individuals to work with and recommending a Real Estate Attorney to handle the closing. Paul is very knowledgeable and responsive and presents a very calm, reassuring demeanor in what can be a very challenging process. I have previously sold 4 other houses and Paul is by far, the best Realtor I have ever worked with.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Saint Charles, IL.
Paul did a terrific job selling our home under less than ideal circumstances. Not only is the market still struggling but there were other issues that made it a difficult situation (including the first buyer losing his job on the day of closing) yet Paul still managed to sell our house twice in less than 7 months!!! Paul is also very compassionate and went above and beyond what we expected. I will definitely call upon Paul if/when I move again AND I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Real Estate agent!
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $475K in Saint Charles, IL.
Paul did a great job in helping me sell my house. He was effective at helping us set a realistic price for the place and for generating a lot of traffic once the house was on the market. I would hire Paul again without hesitation!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $600K in Winfield, IL.
Paul's all-around knowledge of the local market, his personable way, and his tenacity all made our new home purchase as efficient as it could be. If I were to either buy or sell a house in the future, I would call on Paul to represent me. It was a pleasure working with him.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Streamwood, IL.
Leslie was a great help in the sale of our rental property. Practical prep suggestions, great communication, the offer we wanted and a smooth closing. The most effortless real estate transaction we've been a part of.

My wife and I have used Leslie for multiple transactions. She has repeatedly demonstrated her knowledge of the Fox Valley Area. She took the time early on to understand our needs, and for this reason has earned our repeat business.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Saint Charles, IL.
The property that I purchased was desirable and priced competitively. Leslie helped me think through how to present an offer, knowing that other offers were also forthcoming. We discussed bidding strategies and negotiated with the sellers. Now I live somewhere I love.
Leslie was familiar with the townhouse market in the Fox Valley area. I also looked at houses, but was really looking for a maintenance free lifestyle. Leslie was able to keep her eye on the market and look for listings that fit the bill. She was great.
