"Holly and Michael listed our house in Chicago and did an amazing job. We received timely status updates on our listing with suggestions about how to change staging and pricing. When we did have to change the listing price Holly decided the magic number. Once the price was changed our house had an amazing amount of showings. We wound up with 3 concurrent offers. Ultimately we did sell our house for above our target price and above our expected price. Holly and Michael share a lot of the credit for that happening in what was a weak market period for sellers. I would most definitely recommend Holly and Michael to anyone who would need to buy or sell a house in the Chicago area.Morgan C., Logan Square"
"Holly and Michael have helped me buy two homes in the last 8 years with great success as well as helped me rent my condo twice to great renters! I have also referred my friends to them because they are extremely helpful, fast, and were able to get exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend them for buying, selling or renting.Kathy A., Big Oaks"
"Dina and I would highly recommend Holly and Michael. Holly and Michael work incredibly well as a team. Holly initially helped us purchase our condo and based on our positive experience, we decided to work with Holly and Michael to sell our condo. What stands out about Holly and Michael to us would be their patience and professionalism. There was a very noticeable genuineness about them. They were always incredibly prompt for appointments and presented themselves as professionals. We felt that we were being represented extremely well! Holly and Michael worked very hard to sell our condo. They hosted an open house and scheduled many walkthroughs. They were able to sell our condo in just over 2 months at a price that we were very pleased with. Their communication was excellent and they went above and beyond what we expected. Holly even let us know that we had over-paid our real estate taxes and could file for a refund. Our overall experience with Holly and Michael was very positive and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional approach from beginning to end.Dina and Tripp C., Bucktown"

"My wife and I have been privileged to work with Holly and Michael on multiple transactions, the last of which involved the sale of our Lakeview condo and the purchase of a home in the north shore. Because of Holly, what could have been a time-consuming, tedious process of buying and selling to make more room for our growing family became quick and easy. Holly understands the Chicago area markets on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. She listens carefully to her clients, pays attention to details, anticipates problems, analyzes carefully, responds quickly, provides valuable and practical insight, and clearly enjoys her profession. We held Holly and Michael to a high standard and without question, they delivered.Sam and Shelby C., Lakeview"

"When the time came to sell my condo, I set out to interview potential realtors. Within minutes of meeting Holly and Michael, it was clear that they were my first choice. Both are wryly funny and warm…professional without even a hint of "slick". I felt instantly comfortable and thoroughly convinced I was in good hands. By pure coincidence, my next door neighbor decided to sell at exactly the same time that I did. This gave me the ability to compare the work that my realtor was doing with the work of theirs. Holly and Michael smoked them at every turn. Starting with the marketing materials. The photos of my condo looked like they came straight from the pages of Elle Decor...while my neighbor's looked like the interior of a creepy transient hotel. The showings started almost immediately. Holly gave me priceless advice on preparation, timely advance on each showing, and either she or Michael was present for every single one. These are not just "key lock box" on the front door kind of realtors. The place was under contract with less than 10 days on the market. Then the unthinkable happened: the buyer's financing fell through two weeks before we were scheduled to close…the result of complete mishandling by their realtor and lender. I was heartbroken…and TERRIFIED because I had already purchased another property. Holly and Michael were unflappable. They gave me good counsel, sober reassurance, and displayed complete determination…we were back on the market in a matter of hours. To make an (already) long story short, they sold my condo (for the second time) to the very next person that looked at it…FOR MORE MONEY!!!! WHAAAAAAT????? Crazier still, my condo sold for $20k more than the condo next door!! If you feel compelled to interview a bunch of real estate professionals before choosing the one that's best, then by all means do that. But you could also save yourself a lot of time and trouble and simply enlist the help of Holly and Michael. Pretty darned positive you would never regret that decision.Rich W., Rogers Park"
