Success Story: Katia


Selling real estate from afar can be a tricky business, which is part of the reason I love to take on these sorts of challenges for clients. Katia was living abroad when she contacted me to sell her Gold Coast property, so I took it upon myself to organize everything that needed to get done prior to listing. It gives me such pleasure to ease my client’s minds, and make the process as easy as possible. Thank you for trusting me, Katia! It was such a pleasure working together.

How did you find Millie?
While I’ve spent most of my life as a US resident living in Chicago, at the time I was looking to sell my penthouse on Michigan Ave, I was living in London. When I moved back to the US I wanted to live in California, so I decided to sell. My friend recommended two agents in Chicago, and Millie was one of them. I checked out Millie’s website, we connected, and it was a wonderful journey after that.

What do you think sets Millie apart from other brokers?
A lot. Working with Millie was such a pleasant experience. I granted her access to see the place since I was remote. At that point she took the initiative to address what needed to be fixed prior to listing. She recommended decluttering and organizing, and refreshing the terrace, and then went ahead a managed all the necessary vendors. It was so easy for me! With my distance from Chicago, she was just perfect. Her extremely enthusiastic and energetic attitude made me feel so calm throughout the process.

What was your favorite part of working together?
I work in real estate rebuilding houses all over the world, so I’ve worked with a lot of agents. Most of the other agents I’ve worked with do their work, but it is limited to certain things. Millie was so much more, and I really liked that about her. My place didn’t sit for more than two months, so it was a very quick sale compared to the rest of the luxury market. Millie also happens to be a very nice person with good energy.

Would you recommend Millie to a friend?
Of course! Not only did Millie sell my property quickly, but she made the whole process carefree for me. Even when it came time for me to move out, Millie volunteered to oversee the whole process. When you want to sell, you want to sell quickly, and she is a complete solution. I honestly can’t imagine anyone better.
