Customer Testimonial

Susanna Kampwirth

Buyer Rating:

Sue was great and was very helpful. we looked at so many houses in the area.

Susanna took the time with us, spending several weekends looking at houses in the Mchenry area. She was with us every step of the way, despite the travel. She was in constant communication with the other relators for the sellers, and any questions we had on a specific property they were always answered. She went above and beyond expectations. I would recommend her to anyone I knew trying to buy or sell.

Tammy Kovacs-Taborda

Seller Rating:

Lorraine is first and most importantly a genuinely warm person of character. She was not pushy, but always informed me of the facts and her professional opinion. She was always professional and collaborated with me rather than tell me what to do or be overly aggressive. She is very smart and a pleasure to work with.

Lorraine is a very hard worker and very knowledgeable. I would work with her again and refer others to her. - M. Adams, Homewood, Il June 2017

Valarie Stroud

Seller Rating:

Ms.Stroud understood what I needed in a broker and satisfied that criteria.She was always informative and kept me abreast on every issue .I was very pleased with Ms.Stroud professional demeanor and would recommend her if ever asked about her job knowledge,and of the handling your concerns.

Ms.Stroud always showed me the best of the above characteristics when dealing with me .I never had a bad interaction with Ms.Stroud which is why I stated in my last summation that I would re-hire Ms.Stroud if I were to sale another property.

This was my first experience in the sale of property. I did not have any issues or problem ,things seem to go along smoothly .Valarie Stroud made the event non- stressful and no pressure. I have to give Ms.Stroud a BIG THANK YOU.

The above aspects were handled with appropriate decorum and professionalism. If I ever have to sale another property I would hire Ms.Stroud again.

I really only dealt with my broker Ms.Stroud so there is very little I can say about Century 21staff other than the attorney Kathy Rivera who was professional and to the point.I met Ms.Rivera at the closing. I had spoke with Mrs. Riveria by telephone 2-3 times .There were no other interaction. - Marie Jordan Alsip,il March 2017

I am very thankful for the help Barbara "Snow" Miller provided my family and me in selling my parent's home in Palos Heights, IL. She was very helpful in making suggestions in helping us make the house more marketable. I always valued her professionalism and honesty. In our closing, Snow exceeded my expectations as the final closing went very smoothly for both the new buyers and sellers (my family). Snow deserves much of the credit for the success of the final closing.

Rich and I had attended the same church at one time, and I knew him and his family as extremely nice people. Had discussed the possible sale of my house with him previously, and really liked his friendly, professional, and not pushy attitude.

Rich gave me excellent pointers on preparing my house for showing. He was very encouraging as to the condition and any repairs that we had made.

I felt that I was always informed of the progress, and of any delays. He explained what the next steps would be, and where we stood all along the way.

This was my first experience with selling my house, having lived there for 56 years. Rich was so patient and caring in explaining the processes to me, and making me feel comfortable with my decision. - Mary Ekstrom, Lynwood, I October 2016
