My experience with Millie was positive from start to finish. Not only did she help us find the right place, she steered us through the entire home-buying process, serving as our advocate and expert negotiator. And she brought a lot of other resources to the table. Her long-term relationships with other experts was a bonus. For example, the attorney she recommend to handle our transaction gave us excellent service. Millie's office colleagues were also very helpful. With only a few hours of notice one of them was able to secure a cleaning crew willing to come in to our new place at 7 a.m., just ahead of the arrival of our furnishings. Having purchased and sold several homes in my life, I have some basis for comparison, and am happy to highly recommend Millie Rosenbloom.

Millie is hands-down the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. There is a reason why she is one of the top 25 in the nation.

Millie is the BEST! I have had the opportunity to work with Millie on several properties as a seller. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is honest, straightforward, professional and will guide you in the right direction. Millie is truly a gem in a business that is over crowded. Love you Millie!

Mille has very asute staging skills, excellent market knowledge and superb negotiating skills; Millie will get you the best price possible for your home...if you only heed her advice!

Millie was integral in selling my property during difficult times in the building industry, her dedication and perseverance went beyond a client and real estate agent relationship and I can honestly say that she always had my best interest at heart. I selected her because of her expertise in the market and her reputation but I remained with her because of her integrity and professionalism.

Have had experience with this agent while looking for a new residence to live. She listens to what you want, shows you places within your price, and shows places that have your requirements. I would highly recommend this real-estate agent.

Located in a transitonal neighborhood, during a real estate depression Millie did the impossible selling our unique and high cost home in a very impressive time period for a very fair price. Her spot on market insights are all based on the things she brings to the table; hard core market research, great depth of professional experience and ultimatley the passionate pursuit of the right deal.

We are so happy to have found Millie. She succeeded in listing and selling our home and helpied us to buy a new one. Millie knows the Chicago real estate market and neighborhoods very well. After listing our home we had numerous and consistent showings. She negotiated two great deals for on the sale of our home and the other on the home we bought. Millie is supported by an extremely knowledgeable and responsive support team. Millie is ethical and she always had our best interests at the forefront. She is also very honest, even when the truth hurts......whether it's helping to stage our home for resale, or letting us know when a certain prospective home or neighborhood isn't "right" for us! We were delighted and more than satisfied with our relationship with Millie and wholeheartedly recommend her to list your home and/or to help you find a new one!

In 1995 our co-op apt. had been on the market for 2 1/2 yrs w/o any bids. We changed realtors and picked Millie at advice of friends. She found a buyer in 2 weeks. This past year we chose to place our condo apt. on the market in order to move to a contin. care retirement comm'ty and again chose Millie rosenbloom who exceeded our expectations in service and professionalism. She is up-beat and strengthened our resolve when the process slowed. She found a buyer and was of great help in closing the sale. I have recommended her to several friends in the past.

Millie was very professional in her approach to finding us a condo. In addition, she has a great personality. We were looking for newer building when we contacted her. In the past, Millie headed a number of sales team that sold units in new buildings for developers. As such, she knew the buildings and a number of sales agents working with the kind of product that we were looking for. After contract signing, Millie worked with all parties involved to facilitate the due diligence and closing process as we were in Europe and not readily available during that period.

In a nutshell, we were absolutely thrilled with Millie. She listed our single family home for about 10 percent MORE than what other brokers suggested, and delivered two full price offers within three days of hitting the market. Millie "drove the bus" for the entire process, and alleviated any  stress or angst a home seller might otherwise endure. My husband and I sought out the very best Realtor in Chicago to sell our historic brownstone house in the Astor Historic District in Chicago. My mother has been a Realtor in NY for decades, so I was very particular and picky in my search. After interviewing the top five brokers in the Gold Coast and Lincoln Park, we chose Millie, and are so happy we did! Here's what we loved about Millie: 1. Millie is kind and positive, which set the tone for the entire home sale process. No matter how lovely your home might be, it seems that the trend with many Realtors is to tell you everything that is wrong with your home during the first tour (this was the case with the other four brokers I interviewed). This is NOT Millie's style. Instead, Millie was kind, positive, and pointed out all of the great and unique aspects of the our home, and offered helpful hints to stage some areas. She made us feel good. Your home is like your child, and you want to hear good things about it. Additionally, Millie doesn't engage in any of the Realtor cattiness. She keeps it classy and positive throughout. I can't emphasize enough how vital this is for someone who is representing your home. 2. Millie is incredibly sharp, and very well-respected amongst her peers. I first learned of Millie's name when another Realtor friend referred to her as "the most well-respected powerhouse in Chicago." Additionally, when I broke the news to the other Realtors we interviewed, they all remarked in one way or another that Millie is excellent. When we were interviewing brokers, many said that we might have to sell at a lower price, due to the lower price we paid when we first bought the home. Not Millie. Her response to that issue was, "No other brokers would try to pull that bologna with me. The market will predict the value of your home, and that's it." She was thankfully correct. 3. Millie is knowledgable, and a fantastic negotiator. When we had the two full price offers within the first week of listing, Millie was quick not to let one of the offers go. She did her homework, and presented us with the buyer she thought was strongest. At the same time, she was able to keep the secondary buyer in the game until after inspection and contracts were signed. We felt protected. 4. Millie has an exceptional team. The young ladies who work with Millie are the utmost professionals. They are like mini Millies: Sharp, attentive, knowledgable, beautiful, impeccably dressed, and kind. Millie is quite simply the best.

Millie was great to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market. She also discerned very quickly what we liked and didn't like, with the result that we were shown places that could be a fit for us and we didn't waste time looking at places that wouldn't work. When we did find the "right" place, Millie was a great negotiator, so we got an very good. price. She was also excellent with the closing process, identifying possible snags and finding effective solutions. All her office staff and support services were at the highest level of professionalism.

Millie is knowledgeable and efficient. She not only helped prepare the house well for sale but she quickly made it a highly visible in the market. It then sold quickly (even relative to the market) at a fair price. We could not have been happier and would turn to Millie again any time we are in the Chicago real estate market as a buyer or seller.

Outstanding in every respect. Millie always returned each and every phone call promptly. Millie arranged for several on site viewings with the selling agent and without the agent. She arranged for the appropriate contractors to provide inspections and submit a very thorough report. She followed up with the property manager for answers to my inquiries. We were successful in the bid process because Millie insisted that the condo was in the condition she felt was best for the price we settled on. Because of Millie the closing went very well and we are thrilled with our purchase.

Great working with Millie. My condo was a quick sell from the time of posting. She guided us with what needed to be done internal to make it selling quality, this was very helpful. Thank you. I would work with Millie again for any future housing needs.

Millie helped us sell our home in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. We selected Millie because of her knowledge of the area and her reputation across Chicago. She did not fail us!! Her team did an amazing job coordinating tours around our schedule and most importantly, they were ALWAYS present during a tour. We had faith and confidence that Mille and her team had our best interest in mind at all times. Millie also provided a broker in her agency to help us find our new home. She has a knack for finding the right resource for each project. We were very well taken care of by her team and would highly recommend her for your next Chicago home sale and/or purchase!

Millie is truly a professional --- she knows the market, she knows her clients, and consistently provides sound advice.

Without question, Millie Rosenbloom is the most talented, savvy, and "get-it-done" realtor I've ever known or worked with. In fact, Millie and I began our real estate association in 1993 and it continues at the present time. During this period, Millie researched, initiated, and negotiated 21 real estate transactions on my behalf. She is a recognized and highly respected expert in both residential and commercial real estate. Her insights and experience make her one of the most successful realtors in and around Chicago and throughout the State. Clients will also find Millie to be of high integrity, intentive, thorough, personable, and caring. Excellence in providing outstanding and responsive service is indeed a passion with Millie. Simply put, if you're seeking optimal results regardless of your real estate goals or needs, look no further.

Millie sold my large house in Edgewater (Chicago) area. She was always very personable and professional. She also helped me find another smaller house in the Jefferson Park area--also Chicago. Even in the declining house market, Millie was always confident that we would find a buyer for my house. In fact we found a young couple with children that love it as much as my family and I do. My new house needs a lot of work. Millie made sure that I was aware of all the expense and work. We worked with a contractor and inspector to make sure that the house was solid but just needed a lot of updating. Things with the house are going well. She would respond immediately to any e-mails and phone calls. She is extremely knowledgeable in her profession.

Millie was a joy to work with when we were looking to purchase a condo in Chicago. She was professional, courteous, warm, and very knowledgeable. She knew a great deal about the different buildings we looked at, and was good about only showing us places that fit the criteria we gave her. We had a great experience working with her, and recommend her highly.

Millie helped us screen properties and negotiate our purchase - she was absolutely first rate!

Millie is extremely knowlegeable about the market and her advice is spot on. She has many outstanding qualities....she listens, she is always available and if you can't reach her immediately she'll call you back same day, she knows how to negotiate, and what i believe to be her most helpful quality is that she will tell you what you need to hear, which is not necessarily what you want to hear. Hire her. You won't be disappointed.

I would never buy or sell a house without Millie. She has sold three houses for me now, and bought two, and each time she made sure I got the best price possible and that the deal closed. Millie is hard working, honest, straightforward and a true professional.

Millie Rosenbloom has handled two residential sales for me. I will continue to place my confidence in Millie for any and all future real estate transactions.

Millie has a fabulous network of professionals that can help you get your house ready for sale. She also has peers who help price your home correctly. She is professional, provides honest feedback, and was able to sell our home in record time. We recommend her to all our friends.

Millie knows the ins and outs of Chicago real estate. She is currently helping us sell our house. We have so much confidence in Millie and have been very impressed every step of the way.

My wife and I were very impressed by how well Ms. Rosenbloom knows the Chicago Gold Coast and Sheffield neighborhoods. She was able to identify properties that would match our needs and give us a good understanding of each of them. We appreciated her enthusiasm and energy and would recommend her services to anyone needing an agent in these areas.

Experience could not have been better. Millie posses an encyclopedic knowledge of the market helping to make the right decisions efficiently and effectively

Millie was in touch with the market place and was very responsive to my needs. She is a true professional who does not quit until the job is done. One of her services I liked most was a dedicated team to move the property. She provided me with a stager, lawyer, title company, plumber, and more. If you are looking for a true professional that is a pleasure to work with, Millie is that person. 

Millie was great to work with in our search for a condo. As we looked at units, she took our feedback and refined the search. We felt she was actively looking on our behalf. She helped guide us through both the negotiation process and the closing. We would recommend her and use her again.

Many a Chicago agent can negotiate a run-of-the-mill real estate transaction to close. Few can successfully navigate the tricky to nearly-impossible property sales into a win-win for every party involved. Millie is that professional. When the going gets tough, Millie gets to work ironing out the kinks. She has a solid team of real estate professionals to back her every move and she keeps an invaluable circle of tried and true vendors close by that are ready to jump in at a moment's notice to shed more light for her clients. Millie's the cream of the crop when it comes to Chicago real estate!

We had a great experience working with Millie. She found what we wanted and we,re very happy. She was very responsive and very helpful. I would highly recommend her. She did a great job listing and selling our existing condo then helped us find and negotiated a great price for our new condo.

In just two days of looking, Millie helped us zero in on the ideal place to suit our needs--right location, price and amenities. Her market knowledge was comprehensive and impressive.

We knew we wanted to be in downtown Chicago but we didn't know what area would best suit us. After touring several condos & areas with Millie, Millie instinctively knew where we would be the happiest. She found us the right place for the right price. We love it here.

Millie is one of the best brokers I have ever used. She is well respected among her peers. She works in the best interests of her clients and knows how to get the job done.

She sold us one house and years later sold it for us. She is totally spectacular in every possible way. the consummate professional--honest, hardworking, straight-forward and easy to work with. The best!!!

Millie is highly focussed on getting the job done. She told us exactly what we needed to do to sell our home, and made sure that we had the support staff to get our home ready for sale in lightening speed. She listened carefully to what we said, quickly responded to emails/phone calls, consistently followed up and provided a steady hand. Our home sold at the bottom of the housing market.

Millie is clearly a leader in the field. She knows all the other agents and they respect her. She's no-nonsense, provides her opinion on the homes themselves, and keeps the process moving forward quickly (which is what we wanted).

I am a real estate attorney who has worked with Millie, as well as a number of other real estate agents in the area. As busy as Millie is, she is always completely on top of her transactions and works tirelessly to make sure they get done and done right.

Millie listened to what we wanted and then went out and found it (twice). Very responsive. Understands the market. She made the entire process manageable and understandable for us.

My wife and I were house hunting in the North Shore suburbs around the New Trier school district. Millie was terrific at finding several homes within our budget and getting us around town on a tight schedule. We saw many homes and eventually settled in on a terrific place in Winnetka. Millie was a great advocate and represented us masterfully throughout the process. There were several points of negotiation along the way and we were delighted with the outcome at each turn. Furthermore, we needed Millie's guidance regarding contractors, lawyers, mortgage bankers and more. Coming in from out of town, we knew no one. Millie's incredible network went to work for us and we were absolutely thrilled with how well they all did. Millie is a real pro. I'll go back to her over and over again.

Mille has represented me as both a seller and a buyer over the years. She is absolutely trustworthy and misses nothing related to a transaction. She reads everything and understands every detail in a deal and in fact during one sale the zoning certificate resulted in issues that could have negatively impacted the closing, however being straight forward and one step ahead of everyone, Millie solved the issues masterfully. She returned calls and was available when I needed her to be. Millie was potential risks/exposure to me where others would have missed it and sought to protect me during our transaction(s). She is a remarkable professional and person.

Millie is a highly intelligent professional. She knows her stuff, she knows the market and she knows how to get the job done. She doesn't hesitate to tell you to get realistic on price and why. She is able to bring a fresh breath of reality on the deal.

Millie was outstanding. Through her extensive contact and net working list, she found a buyer for the property very near our initial listing price before the property was even put on the multiple list. This was a total success in every respect which would not have happened without her contacts, net working and aggressive marketing.

Millie was terrific. She is very professional, knows the market, and was responsive to all our needs. She was willing to spend as much time as possible in order to find the right property. She was very thorough in her market evaluation. I would always use her as my broker.

She was, without a doubt, a consummate professional in every possible way. She's one of the top in the business for this very reason. She had been attentive to each of our needs and was readily responsive. She guided us in making our decision, gave frank appraisals of various properties, and never once pressured us to buy quickly. We had a limited time schedule and she worked within those boundaries without a single problem noted. Millie was also very personable, approachable, and she has a warm and genuine personality that makes the entire stressful experience of purchasing a home all the easier. She is without question one of the finest professionals I've ever dealt with in any field.

Millie helped us find a condo in Chicago to be used as an in-town second home. We began the search as real novices about Chicago neighborhoods and condo options. She guided us through the various choices we needed to make. The daily online postings were very helpful and saved us a wasted visits. Ultimately, we visited about 20 units over 4-5 afternoons before arriving at our choice, over time getting clearer about what we wanted.  Millie is extremely knowledgeable and responsive and is highly respected by other real estate professionals. We enthusiastically recommend her services.

Millie is knowledgeable and savvy! you know she is always looking out for you, and will be glad to have her on your side of the negotiations! We plan to use her again and would recommend her to anyone!

Millie proved to be an excellent partner in every aspect of listing and selling my home. Her vast knowledge of everything from market conditions to mechanicals is unparalleled. When you hire Millie, you get Millie, she was personally there every step of the way.

Millie was great to work with! She is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the industry. She consistently kept in touch with us (always with an impeccable response time- even at night and on the weekends) and thoroughly talked us through all of the steps during the process of purchasing our home. She is very pleasant to be around, easy to talk to and easy to understand and we felt she truly had our best interests and happiness in mind at all times. We enjoyed working with her, we love our new home and we absolutely recommend her!

Millie is professional, knowledgable, and friendly. The best realtor I have EVER worked with. She was always on time, never rushed us and knew exactly what we were looking for. Never once did she suggest a property that wasn't something that we wouldn't have chosen. Her staff is also excellent. I have told everyone I know to use her services. The Best in Chicago!!!!

Millie is knowledgeable, patient and takes the time to listen to and understand her clients needs. She provides keen insight about the market and is honest and straightforward about properties for sale and about the strengths and weaknesses of the property you plan to sell. I have never in 50 years of buying and selling homes) found an agent more trustworthy and understanding. Millie is the best.

We will be empty nesters soon and met with Millie to discuss our desire to move to the Gold Coast from the suburbs. This is the ninth time we have bought a home in our 30 year marriage, so we know good (and not-so-good) real estate work. Within weeks she helped us narrow our search to just a couple of buildings. When the "right" place became obvious she stepped in with more of her expertise to get us what we wanted. The process was quicker (happily) than we expected - much of that attributable to Millie.  It was a pleasure to work with Millie. She is well-known and respected among her peers - an absolute professional with immense industry knowledge. Plus, she has the added bonus of being extremely likeable!

Millie is a true professional that handled all the details from staging, showings, negotiating and closing. Not once was I inconvienced. The entire transaction was less than 3 months and the selling price was very good. I have sold 10 homes in the past 20 years and Millie was by far the best at all parts of the transaction.

Millie is businesslike, responsive and no one could know the Chicago real estate market better than she does. Even though our condominium was not one of the high end properties that Millie has been so successful in marketing, she gave us her full attention and managed to sell it within a month and at a good price. We would unhesitatingly recommend Millie to anyone looking to buy or sell Chicago real estate.

Without question, Millie Rosenbloom is the most talented, savvy, and "get-it-done" realtor I've ever known or worked with. In fact, Millie and I began our real estate association in 1993 and it continues at the present time. During this period, Millie researched, initiated, and negotiated 15 real estate transactions on my behalf. Her insights and experience make her undoubtedly one of the most successful Realtors in and around Chicago. Clients will find her to be very personable and caring, with an integrity level second to none. Excellence in providing outstanding and responsive service is a passion with Millie. Clearly, if you're seeking optimal results in whatever real estate goals or needs you have, you must work with the best. Millie is just that!
