I've been waiting to recommend our real estate agent for years! Her name is Pam Pekoc and she works with Baird and Warner out of their office on Lincoln. Her number is ###-###-####. She mostly works in the city, but she just helped us buy a house in the suburbs. My husband and I love her--she's professional, shows up on time, a good, clear communicator, neutral about the houses she shows you--doesn't try to sell you on something just to sell it. I highly recommend her.

We used Steve Hobbs to purchase our home one year ago. Since then I referred a friend to him who just bought a home that he has showed them through him. We both bought in Chicago. He is knowledgeable but not pressuring. This was very important to me and my friend as neither of us knew where we wanted to buy. If you want to contact him his phone number is ###-###-####. Tell him J. V. referred you.

Good luck

I very highly recommend Scott Gettleman at Baird and Warner! He worked with us last winter and I've been dying to recommend him to someone - we just loved him! He understood exactly what we were looking for and showed us only places that really matched our needs. He then lead us through the negotiation process, getting us an incredible deal - this guy knows what he's doing! I'm out of town right now and don't have access to his phone number, but his email is: [email protected]____.com luck!

I can't recommend a real estate agent, but if you decide to look in the Brookfield area, we currently have our house on the market. It is 3 bedroom tri-level, completely remodeled, with a huge yard. We are close to the Burlington Northern train line. If interested, let me know and I can have our agent show it to you.

Hi S., my name is M. Lukasik, I'm mom of 1,5 year old. Right before she was born we purchased a condo, our agent was very helpfull, totally patient, knowlegable. He runs his own company, he is a dad of four, he is honest and highly dedicated to his ethical rules. Before I met Mario, I ws literally afraid of real estate agents-hearing all this stories about agents, that screw their clients up etc. Mario values his reputation most-he checks things up for you to make shure you will be happy with the purchase.He helps with negotiation process. Check him up- Mario Bilotas, Four Daughters Real Estate, ph# 1-###-###-####. Best regards, M..

Yes! Dee Springer with @Properties. I have used her twice (well 3x if you consider that she helped us sell our old and buy our new place this last time around). She is to the point with buyers and sellers but yet has a very sweet demeanor. Both my husband and I adore her, and I recommend her to everyone I know. Her cell, which is used for business, is ###-###-####. (I also wrote a little review on her on this site.)

Hi S.,

I hope you are looking at the Northshore - we have looked it here - but now need to move back home to Indiana. Our 3 bed 2.5 bath house is great entry level into Glencoe. Glencoe is the smallest of the Northshore towns and rated 1# Town a couple years by Northshore magazine. You can look at our house at 300vernon.com. We love our home and hope to sell to someone who will love this area as much as us!

Hello.

We adored our real estate agent. We were referred to him by a good friend who looked for months (up to 6 months, if I remember correctly) to find the perfect condo, with a tight budget. This agent is very, very thorough and patient, even with a small budget.

I can't say enough great things. When my husband and I were looking, we couldn't even narrow down the neighborhoods very well. We looked at 3 flats, single family homes and condos all over the city. Derek was great-- he took our lack of specifics in stride. He'd send us listings at 2-3 am over e-mail. He knows the city very well. He is really honest... we've since recommended him to every one we know looking for a place. We did find a great home, and we knew it when we found it. An added bonus, he is really graet company and incredibly hard-working.

Good luck.
