Oak Lawn is a warm and friendly community located Southwest of Chicago. Residents of Oak Lawn take pride in the distinctive “home town” atmosphere. The village has award winning schools, a start of the art public library, multiple parks, a walking trail, a public pool and is home to Stony Creek Golf Course. 

In the heart of Oak Lawn you will find many amenities for the community. There is a METRA Train Station servicing commuters to and from Chicago and as far south as Manhattan. The Children’s Museum of Oak Lawn and the 9/11 Memorial are both adjacent to the Metra Train Station and within walking distance of many community events held on the Village Green.

Oak Lawn is home to Advocate Christ Hospital and Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital. Advocate Christ Hospital is a Level 1 trauma center and is a leader among teaching hospitals.

Beverly Ruminski

Buyer Rating:

We were so lucky to work with a realtor like Bev! As first time home buyers, she made us feel comfortable and told us what to look for or what kinds of issues would come up later with each home purchase. She always made time for us and always answered our questions in a very timely manner. No question went unanswered. She was very personable and helped us find and close on the best home for us. She was always timely and if for some reason she would be late, she would always let us know way ahead of time. She completely understood what we were looking for right from the start and made sure we were happy with our decision. Because of Bev, the entire process from looking, to making offers, to closing was super easy and painless. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Thanks so much!! We'll definitely let her know when we are looking into purchasing again. - Anna Klimek, Bridgeview, July 2017

Richard Rudolph

Buyer Rating:

Mr Rudolph handled the sale of our home several years ago, so, when we decided to return to the Chicagoland area, my husband and I felt that Rich Rudolph would be the perfect real estate agent for our needs. We called Rich quite often to ask him questions about properties, and through out the entire process, his professionalism, caring nature, and patience made the purchase of our property a very pleasurable experience. We would indeed recommend Rich Rudolph to our family and friends.

Thanks Again Rich, and God Bless! - John & Linda B., Lisle,i July 2017

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.

Rich Ciciora did an excellent job selling my home taking into account the emotional aspect of how the sale was going to effect me. He was not pushy which I found refreshing.

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.

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

I refer her to others any chance I get and for those that have used her for their real estates needs, always thank me for the referral to a great agent. - Mary Gasienica, Chicago May 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.
