No hesitation to use Maureen again. Maureen was very prepared, thorough, responsive, proactive when investigating potential homes to purchase. She listened to what we had to say in terms of budget, location, type of home and was able to find desirable homes for us to view . Would recommend anyone relocating to Glen Ellyn consider Maureen as their buying agent.
Knows the area, she’s great at understanding the needs and going beyond your expectations always willing to answer questions and is very knowledgeable. Will always use her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home!
She was one of three brokers we considered and she knocked it out of the park from our first meeting. She did her research, was very prepared, and clearly knew our market. She was professional yet connected well with both my wife and me. Once we selected she immediately took all steps to properly prepare us and our home for listing. Once we relocated she kept us informed via clear and detailed communications. Once we had a contract again she kept us updated and made sure we were comfortable with each step of the process. Exceptional at her job!
My wife and I were very happy with her knowledge for our subdivision and how she advertised our residence as a "Family Home" which in turn brought the right family in to purchase our home. She displayed professional photos of our home which were so tastefully done that really showed the beauty of the home and it's outdoor living space. There were moments throughout the sale that we came across some unexpected delays from the buyers side but Maureen was there for us to ensure us that she had everything in control. Our family has come to a conclusion that it was through Maureen's Professional strength as a First Class Realtor and her on hands approach that kept our sale on track. Our experience with the Legal Staff that Maureen introduced us to was perfect, smooth and non stressful throughout the closing process. "Thank You" to Maureen and everyone involved with the sale of our home which in turn has led to an easy transition with our relocation move to Pittsburgh!
Maureen clearly understood the value of the extensive rehab to a certain type of buyer. I was more than pleased with the actual selling price. The staging was well done and certainly helped with the process.
She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to any of my friends or family who would need a realtor in the future. Maureen gets an A+ from me. Linda Bertani
She exudes professionalism and knowledge on either side of the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent they can trust to tell them the truth and represent their financial and personal interests in the home relocation process.
She did not push us into something that was not right for my husband and I. She communicated clearly with us throughout the buying process. She helped negotiate our purchase with her knowledge of the local market. She was always happy to share house and excited to show us new properties. We loved working with Maureen.
She came so highly recommended from two close friends who recently had bought their first home with her that we didn't even explore other realtor options. She was quick to respond to my initial email and we scheduled an in person meeting where we narrowed down our needs & wants. She provided both an honest and realistic sense of the current market and what we could afford for our price range. After the meeting, we decided we wanted to wait a little longer before we started actually looking and she checked in and was also very patient with us. Maureen and I went on home tours and I would often ask her opinion of the place and she would make really helpful suggestions and offer advice. We actually put an offer in on one of the places we saw and she was excellent with working on our behalf and negotiating for us. She was an excellent communicator and made sure we were comfortable and understood the process - especially as first time home buyers. She answered my many questions and stay organized, as well as made referrals for the home inspection and lawyer (both of which were great) The closing also went well and she went with to make sure everything went well. She also was very kind and gave us a card and gift. Unexpected but we were incredibly grateful for her thoughtfulness. The entire process with Maureen was incredibly smooth and no hiccups. We were so thankful to have someone like her working on our behalf and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy!
I do think she didn't quite understand Winfield Estates, how pricing differs within the neighborhood. Also, I felt as though knowing that our neighbor purposely jacked up their price to $425,000 so the buyer could use an agent should have sent a red flag that perhaps that comp was over-priced and under a different set of circumstances. It was what I would call a fake comp.
