I recently helped my clients Grace and Dan find a wonderful family home in Chicago, and I am so grateful to have their kind words on the blog today. Along with their children, they made the big move from California to Illinois, and I was honored to be a part of building their new life here. Here is our interview with them—thank you Grace and Dan, and welcome to Chicago!
How did you find Millie?
We were making the move from California to Chicago. We asked our very trusted realtor and friend to recommend us the best realtor for the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. He did a survey of the Chicago branch, and the answer was, hands down, Millie.
What do you think sets Millie apart from other brokers?
Millie wasn't trying to pitch every house to us. She showed us a spectrum of houses—some of which we asked to see and she thought inappropriate—so that we could make up our own mind. She never pushed any product on us, but instead guided us towards what we jointly found to be the appropriate neighborhood and price point.
What was your favorite part of working together?
When we were touring the various houses and Millie was grilling the realtors about the windows and tile work. During the inspection, she was scanning the house for anything to be fixed.
Did you use her team? (i.e. lawyer, stager, etc.)?
Yes, we used her lawyer recommendation, Joe Palmisano, who was able to negotiate good warranty and liability protections for us.
Would you recommend her to a friend?
A strong yes.
