Ratings & Reviews

We were first time home buyers and were on a time crunch and had less than 1.5 months to close on a house. We had little knowledge about home buying process and had tons of questions on every property we saw. Shawna was very patient through the process and promptly answered all our questions, giving us insightful information about the property. Shawna gives personal space and does not try to sell any property which makes it very comforting and easy to make the choice. She gives her point of view about the house without being pushy about it. We were able get a beautiful townhouse in a nice neighborhood with Shawna's help. We would highly recommend her without any second thought to any prospective buyers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Bolingbrook, IL.

I worked with Shawna a couple of times, the first time was when my husband and I we were looking to rent and the second time was when we decided to find and buy a house. We couldn't have been happier with the service she provided. She had a consistently positive yet pragmatic attitude as we went through the home buying process, which was quite challenging to say the least. Her accessibility seemed unprecedented. No matter what questions I had, big or small, she was readily available and eager to get us the answers we needed. She comfortably guided us through the process and quickly connected us to the right people for inspections, etc. She really seemed to go above and beyond to make the home buying process go as smoothly as possible. There were times when I just wanted to throw in the towel because the process seemed to get very grueling at times but she was always there to listen to me when I just needed to vent my frustrations. However, no matter how frustrated I got she always managed to calm me down with positive reassurance. I’m happy to say that after everything we went through to get this house we finally made it and I couldn’t be happier. I could not have asked for a better realtor to get me through this process. I would highly recommend working with Shawna, whether you’re looking to buy or even rent. She is the absolutely best!!!! :-)

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Oswego, IL.

I worked with Shawna in both selling and purchasing a home. The amount of patience she has is amazing. We looked at many homes together and it took a while to find something that I liked. She helped me find the perfect home and shortened my commute to work by over an hour. Thank you Shawna for being an awesome realtor and helping me relocate!. I am extremely happy in my new place.

Bought a home in 2014 in Tamarack, Plainfield, IL 60585.

Shawna helped us to purchase our first home in the Plainfield/Naperville area. She was friendly and knowledgeable about the local area we were looking at. All of the people she recommended were also very good contacts. The only thing I would of changed is for there to be more focus on the area we wanted to view. Overall, a great experience with a direct and friendly professional.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Aurora, IL.

I found Shawna on Zillow when I was looking for a realtor to help me rent out my parents' house, which was 50 miles away from where I lived. I reached out to her via email and we exchanged about two dozen emails within the first week - she was extremely prompt in returning all my messages! Since it was hard for me to drive out to my parents' house, Shawna told me I could mail her the keys, if I was comfortable, so she could take a look at the house and help me come up with a price suggestion.

By the second week, she had listed the house and started showing it. Within two more weeks, we had received multiple applicants and selected the one with the best offer! Along the way, Shawna gave us great advice on how to spruce up the house (such as removing weeds) as well as letting us know about the city requirements around rentals (such as having to take a landlord class).

Finally, the one thing that Shawna did that really impressed us was when our cleaners cancelled on us three days before our tenants moved in. I sent Shawna a panicked email at 11pm on a Saturday night. By 8am on Sunday morning, she had responded with a detailed list of other cleaners I could call and offered to stop by the house, let the cleaners in and do a final walk-through for us (since I was going to be out of town).

Overall, Shawna is extremely tech-savvy (we did everything via email), quick to respond (she would typically respond within hours), knowledgeable about real estate as well as city laws and is excellent at dealing with tough situations. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future!

Bought a home in 2014 in Aurora, IL 60503.

I gave Shawna a 5 star rating for many reasons. She was very knowledgable about the area we moved to and able to answer our questions. She was always available at a moments notice. Best of all she negotiated a great price! I would highly recommend her.

Helped me rent a home in Naperville, IL 60564.

We used Shawna to purchase an investment property and later to find a tenant. She went above and beyond in helping us through the process. Even after closing the deal and finding us our tenant she continued helping us resolving any followup that we needed with the tenant without us asking for it. Shawna is a definite exception in a world where most real estate agent washes off their hand after getting their commission. Thank you Shawna for all you help and we will definitely recommend her to our friends.

Bought a home in 2013 in Frontenac, Aurora, IL 60504.

Shawna was great to work with. We were looking for an investment property. She quickly understood our needs, compiled listings for us to review, scheduled appointments at times that are convenient, and also looked at the value of the property from our eyes and eventually helped us pick the right property to buy. She is very patient, doesn't push, and most importantly very honest in sharing her opinions. I would highly recommend her.

Bought a home in 2014.

Shawna is very friendly and understands our needs in a new home. She is very easy to work with as she is so patient and gives importance to your opinion and lets you take time to decide on anything. It was very difficult to decide for us as a first time home buyer, but with Shawna's support and help we finally bought the perfect home for us. I highly recommend her to anyone who is planning to buy a home.
