Hi Moms,

I'm looking for a real estate agent to help us sell our condo near downtown Palatine. (Well, actually a really good real estate agent, since the market is not so great.) Do you know anyone, please?

Alternatively.... is anyone looking for a great 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo with a den, big balcony overlooking a park, all stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors, that's only about two years old?
Thanks!!

What can I do next?

Thanks again for all the responses! We found someone that we have a lot of confidence in. But we're not expecting any miracles in this market... :)

Becky,

We live in the Palatine area and had great success selling and buying houses in Palatine with S. Gould with Stark Realtors. She specializes in Palatine and knows the market incredibly well.

I would highly recommend her.

Sandy Heinlein in Palatine, Baird and Warner, ###-###-####, they are right up the street at NW Hwy and Quentin, very good friend of my family. - I have always thought about getting my license and working w/her (she's a broker, not just an agent and is one of their top salespeople --she's more of a seller's agent than a buyer's although she does both) She'll cut to the chase and is very good at what she does. I can also recommend that you work with someone who specializes in your area, has many years in the business and is prospering even in a slow market. Having someone in Palatine, who represents Palatine, is a plus. And someone who is actively marketing your house/condo ---I don't know which buildings you are in, but I LOVE the downtown area, so hopefully you'll sell quickly, otherwise, put that silly little statue in a potted plant on your balcony ;)

Hi there-

Congrats on the baby. Randy Brush and Mark Elias from Coldwell Banker are awesome! They have gotten over 25 people through our house in 2 weeks and we should have two offers on the table by tomorrow. We currently have one offer. They are awesome!

If you want their contact info...just let me know. Understand though, you have to be realistic about what you are asking for your place. IF you can be, these guys can get it done.

Hope this helps.

Hi Becky,

I am in the Real Estate industry ( New Construction) for 10 years now. I highly recommend Lou Pleotis from Keller Williams Realty in Barrington. He lives in Palatine and knows the area. He has been a successful agent for a very long time. You are right - in this market you need to use a very good agent. Things ARE selling. Just price it right and make it look great!

We used Laura Cannon to buy and sell. She was working for Baird & Warner, but is now with Keller Williams. She's great with researching comps and coming up with a strategy in a challenging market. Here's her info:

We just moved to Palatine (literally last week --although I think maybe we live in Rolling Meadows/Palatine?). Anyway we used Jeanne DeSanto as our seller's agent. She was really excellent. Very responsive and really seems to know her stuff. I'm not sure if she lists in Palatine, but I don't know why she wouldn't. Anyway, a link to her information follows:
