Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $200K in West Town, Chicago, IL.
As a first time homebuyer, I was expecting my agent, Mona Jee, to walk me through the process and explain how everything worked. Instead there was constant confusion as Mona was very disorganized, and many mistakes were made on my contract. Before it was submitted I brought up the things I thought needed to get changed and she just said my attorney could take care of it. All of these mistakes later came up and were a hassle to deal with, and Mona's response was, "why did we put that on the contract". For some reason every home I was going to make an offer on, she asked what the highest I was willing to pay for it, and we would just offer that. Basically she was just looking to make a quick buck, and have others clean up the mess for her. Luckily those people were there to do it, and I was able to purchase my condo. She was not at the closing, and I have not received a phone call or a congratulations on my first home purchase. When people speak badly of the real estate industry it is because of agents like Mona.

Not only does she have great knowledge about properties in the area I am interested in, she is also patient, friendly, and always willing to help. Thank you Mona!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Tri-Taylor, Chicago, IL.
I had a pleasure of working with Mona to identify and buy my condo in 2014. We started our search around March of 2014 and I closed a home in late July.
This was my first time of buying a condo and Mona helped me to walk through this complex journey patiently.
One would think real estate agent has an incentive to have buyer to purchase expensive home quickly (as usually they get certain % as commission), however Mona actually advised me to make sure I buy a house that I can truly love and enjoy living. I believe she did so because she has longer term relationships and reputation in mind and moreover, she thinks it is a right thing. She advised me on various risks and benefits of each home we visit – location, floor plan, construction, market price trend of the area given her extensive knowledge of Chicago real estate market.
I would recommend Mona as your real estate agent and if I were to buy another house again, I would definitely will go to Mona as my first choice.

I was very impressed with Mona Jee and the level of customer service she provided to me. She clearly has an excellent knowledge of the city and was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Mona to anyone looking for property in the city. She's great!
We really enjoyed working with Mona. She was knowledgeable about the area we were looking in, understood the things that were important to us and never pressured us to make decisions we weren't comfortable with. We would highly recommend her to others!

Mona Is a true Real Estate Professional, she is very easy to communicate with and extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Mona for buying or selling a property. Every inquiry that I had, her response time was very fast whether it was an email or phone call.
Mona has been a wonderful real estate agent who goes the extra distance to engage and assist her clientele. She presents as professional helpful and available and you never feel that you are "inconveniencing her." I would highly recommend Mona as she has local knowledge of Illinois, is responsive, professional, warm , friendly and caring. She does not impress me as being someone who is "out to just make a buck."
I enjoy working with her , would and have highly recommended her to others, and look forward to many more opportunities to work with her regarding real estate.
