Success Story: Chris


Chris and I are kindred spirits in many ways, but mostly because we both are passionate dog lovers. Chris’s move was prompted by her growing family of pets, so dogs are also what brought us together! I am truly touched by the words Chris spoke about me, and am so glad to have her friendship. Finding people like Chris, and helping them transition to a new home is what I love most about my job.

How did you find Millie?
Of course, everyone knows OF Millie, as her reputation precedes her all over Chicagoland. Plus I know many people who have worked with her and loved her.

What do you think sets Millie apart from other brokers?
Millie is one of the hardest working people I've ever met. As a business person, I take care of high net worth people who all work very hard, but Millie has a work ethic that would make them jealous. After working with Millie, I use her as a gage for professionalism. I’ll ask myself, “Was that Millie quality work?” She also has a magical blend of success traits such as work ethic, smarts, goal-oriented, and also kindness. She is extremely kind.

I also found that the way she handles the process is unique. She shares as much information with her clients as possible, and also has the best connections. You are so T-ed up for success if you listen to her. She also does what she says she is going to do. There is a trust factor there that is at the top of the trust scale. She said, “The place will look better if we do X, and I have a guy. Or, I will go find a guy.”

And she was right—my place looked so good by the time Millie was finished that I wanted to buy my own place again. We used such high-quality finishes because Millie knows what works. I felt so proud of the place, and felt confident that it would sell.

What was your favorite part of working together?
Millie adds good karma vibes to whatever she touches. She’s such a good person and it carries over into her work. I really believe that. For example, she looked at a picture of my dog, who had just passed away. She started crying with me in that moment. She’s the real deal. When you work with Millie, you have a partner who will work with you until you achieve your goal.

Did you use any of her recommended vendors?
I did everything she told me to do. Everyone she recommended was outstanding, and a specialist in their respective field.

Would you recommend Millie to a friend?
I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good experience, and for someone to restore their faith in a transaction like this. Millie keeps everything calm. She's not trying to agitate people to seek an outcome. She's trying to get you to a good end. That's her vibe and you can't fake that.
