Client testimonials

Katie was absolutely awesome to work with for my condo search. She is professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure.

Katie worked EXTREMELY hard for my benefit and I appreciated input entirely. I was living out of state and she handled my transaction expertly. I would recommend her enthusiastically.


Katie was awesome!


She was so prompt, personable, responsive, trustworthy and supportive of our thoughts and ideas.


She never steered us wrong! Would HIGHLY recommend her for anyone looking for a broker!


Katie made the home buying process smooth and fun. She found beautiful homes for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone else who is looking for a new home.


We used Katie to help us find a great home in the suburbs, after living in Chicago for 20+ years.


Katie was knowledgeable about the process, kept in constant communication with us, and started with an approach that really helped us identify what was important to us and hone in on our search.


If you're looking for someone who can assist you through this process that can be very stressful, will give you honest advice and help keep you sane, Katie is the realtor for you!


Katie was great!


I was a VERY picky client and she helped me find a great place. Would recommend her to anyone!


Katie is a star! I was relocating from LA to Chicago and was looking for a clean and homey space for my family. I was introduced to Katie by a friend and was super impressed by her professionalism, punctuality, and patience. She took our specifications (we had many) and sent us listings every day. Even gave us a virtual tour of a couple of places! Moving from state to state is incredibly stressful but it was such a relief to have someone like Katie on our side. Couldn't recommend more.


Throughout our home purchasing process Katie kept a constant active search for homes that met our budget criteria and taste. In this crazy market, there were times where my husband and I were not even sure if we would ever find a home in the Chicagoland area and we changed our search locations several times, but throughout all our changes Katie remained responsive and asked questions to accommodate our search. Once we were under contract, Katie kept constant communication with us and made sure lender and attorneys were also in the loop of all updates to make the process smooth and easy. We closed in just under 3 weeks! We recommend Katie 100%!!!


Fantastic to work with! 

Thoughtful, thorough, and responsive.


When I started to get discouraged, Katie kept positive and continued to send me listings and schedule tours.


I ended up finding a wonderful condo and Katie was with me through the entire closing process. I can't recommend her more!
