Success story: Owen and Melissa move cross country with our help


Recent clients Owen and Melissa found me via Zillow, when one of my listings populated in their results. I later found out that I was chosen as their broker after quite a bit of research on their part! “In the end we liked her the best because she listened to what we wanted--which not all Realtors do. Many push whatever is out there on you,” Owen recalls.

Because they were still living in California while looking for a home here in Chicago, I knew it was important to get a very good idea of their specific tastes, and exactly what they were looking for: “Millie took the time to get to know us, so the new ideas that she brought to the table were always helpful,” said Owen.

Owen and Melissa took about three to four trips here to Chicago to research properties, neighborhoods and schools, and I was very involved in the process along the way. Once they settled on the property they wanted to purchase, I made a few key referrals to help the process along: “We used Millie’s recommended lawyer, and he was very knowledgeable and responsive,” Owen said.

After about six months of research, and selling their California property, Owen recalls: “Buying was the easiest part of the whole deal!” You don’t hear that very often, and I am very glad he feels that way, especially working remotely on so much of this deal! “We love what we bought--love the location, and love the property,”  Owens said.

When asked if he would recommend our team, Owen said, “Absolutely. Millie is super professional, but what set her apart is that she isn’t the typical real estate agent. She wasn’t trying to sell a house. Her approach was to learn about us, and what we want and don’t want, and then go out and find what we were looking for. She put her time in, and we appreciate it.”

Welcome to Chicago, Owen and Melissa, we are glad you’re here, and it was a pleasure working with you!
